Taste - Tea

Food

We're into the second week with the furnace being out at work, and it's raining, so it's cold and damp and icky. So I am treating those of us here today to bagels. Figure the carbs would be good. We rarely ever have food brought in, so it's a real treat for me!

Still

I rarely read fanfic anymore, other than a few stories here and there. Every so often, I'll get the bug in a new fandom and go through a few weeks of mainlining the fic, then I just stop. That happened with Iron Man. Since discovering Magnificent Seven, I seem to be breaking the pattern. It's been several months, and I'm still reading the fic! Currently, I'm working my way through a 158 part story called 'When Shadows Fall'. What's awesome is that there is so much great gen fic, even though it's a big slash fandom. And so much of it is well written. And I think the variety helps; there's the Old West fic, and then there's the AU ATF modern day fic. I've never been much of a fan of AUs, so that's a pattern breaker too. There are other AUs in the fandom, but so far, only the ATF has attracted me. Not a fan of kiddie AUs, I'm afraid. And lots of great humour pieces in both universes to go along with the angst.

Thank you strangevisitor7, for getting me into this fandom!! I've been having so much fun!

A Nice Start

We got to come home at 1pm, though I stayed till 2 since ninjababe was out running errands at the time. After she picked me up, we went to the Ventana tasting room to get our wine club selections for the month, and to get wine for Thanksgiving. They told us to come back tomorrow since they're open till 3pm because Nin couldn't do a tasting since she was heading off to work. We just might do that! We're not having Thanksgiving tomorrow, and for once, she's off with me, so it's a thought. We're actually having quesadillas and margaritas for dinner tomorrow.

We both work Friday, and then on Sat., we're heading to tequilajen and Dave's for a three day weekend. I'm going to cook a turkey there on Sunday, Nin's going to make cheesecake for dessert, and Jen's making pumpkin soup. Plus she's stuffing with much other food over the course of the weekend. We'll finish off watching the Mag 7 eps we didn't get to when they visited last too.

Nin's working till midnight, so I'm sitting here with a pot of tea and fic and reloading my LJ inbox every few minutes. How happy I'll be when they get the email mess sorted! I'm pondering putting a movie on, maybe one of the PotC ones.

Awful

I'm watching FNC which is carrying a live feed from a news network in India and following this. From what I'm hearing there's still terrorists at large in the city.
