bitter disappointment is....

When you look at the clock on the wall and think it reads 3:20 pm and then look at the computer clock a few minutes later and realize it's actually 2:22 pm. No, your afternoon at work is not almost over. Sorry.

As bitter disappointments go, though, I'll admit it's a fairly minor and fleeting one. How's your day going? I hope it's been full of pleasant surprises and unexpected joy.

And whimsy. Whimsy's always good, too.

have completed a wip

Two years (almost to the day) since I started this thing, it is finished. Huzzah! Can't vouch for the quality of it, and, well, it is five iterations of the same conversation, more or less, so...some repetition. Sorta. Anyways, I give you: Like Holy Palmers. In which kissing Rodney is not the stupidest thing John's done, but it's definitely up there on the list.

If this sounds familiar, it's because bits and pieces of it have shown up here and there--pretty much whenever I despaired of ever actually finishing it. Still gen like a totally, totally gen thing, though, so no worries on that front. Despite the summary.

And now I need to sit down and actually write out my reverse round story for originalbigbang. Which means research, because I decided to set it in a time & place I'm totally unfamiliar with, and give the main character a profession with lots of technically fiddly language to worry about. Yay. Why oh why did I do something so stupid? Should've picked the surreal picture instead--then I could have written just about anything and gotten away with it....
