I'm exhausted, so I shall attempt to be brief.

1. I signed Andrew up for one of the half-day camps at one of the local museums (the VLM, which he calls the "animal museum", which is essentially accurate) and it was this morning. He spent 90 minutes learning about beavers and I spent 90 minutes at Starbucks writing porny Omegaverse. He LOVED it and made a beaver out of two paper plates.  I wrote 2,000 words and had a salted caramel mocha frappuccino.  A good time was had by all, and I have subsequently signed him up for more camps.

Dad, do not click this, you will be seriously sad if you do. )

2. I finally got to write more Lord Moriarty in my Medieval Omegaverse fic.  OMG I LOVE LORD MORIARTY.  He is so terrible that he's fun.  He keeps making all these sexual inneundos all over the place, I flippin' adore him.

3. Bill and I went on a date to see Guardians of the Galaxy because we are slow about such things.  It was way better than the previews made it out to be, and I am totally impressed with the perfection that was Karen Gillian's and Zoe Saldana's makeup.  And Dancing Groot.  Dancing Groot was perfect.  I need a Dancing Groot in my life.

3a. Andrew was very good for the babysitter, who happens to be our new next-door neighbor.  Except he somehow finangled himself over to their house for dinner so babysitting became more of a massive playdate with the 3-year-old girl who lives there as well.  Easiest babysitting gig ever, I think.

3b.  Then again, the whole afternoon was one massive playdate: he played with the same little girl as well as best friend/partner-in-crime Trent at our house for a few hours beforehand; maybe he didn't realize the playdate was over?

(There is nothing funnier than watching two 4-year-old-boys and one 3-year-old girl play together, because it's truly a lesson in the difference between the sexes.  One of them knows how to play hide-and-seek, two of them really really do not.  Two of them were utterly fascinated by the moving truck delivering the motorcycle next door; one of them really really was not.  Two of them were happy to hit balls outside; one of them just wanted to sit and read books.  You can probably guess which ones were which.)

1. The conversation at [ profile] reading221b is still going.  I....I'm just thrilled beyond words.

(Unfortunately, I'm also lost as insanity in trying to follow it anymore, but please don't let that stop you from checking it out.  It's still going strong!)

2.  So I'm writing my bits of the Medieval Omegaverse fic this morning, and I'd plotted the scene out in my head before getting out of bed (as I do), and I'm writing and everything's going to plan when all of a sudden my secondary character just lets loose with this monologue that I swear to everything I did not see coming, and OMG but if I didn't just suddenly get him, and realize that he's actually a seriously important part of the upcoming plot, and now I know his motivations for why he's part of the plot and I'm about twenty kinds of excited about him now.  I really, really hope I don't have to kill him off.

Also, if anyone wants to find me a picture of a 13th-century carriage that does not look like the Queen's carriages, that would be awesome, because my Google-fu is totally not working tonight.

3. Andrew is drawing stick figures.  Granted, he then scribbles over them, but the point is that under that scribble, there is a stick figure.

3a. We have secured babysitting for tomorrow night, so Day Five of Positivity will probably appear on Saturday morning, and will most likely include some level of squee about Guardians of the Galaxy, as I'm pretty sure that'll be on the agenda.
azriona: (cat in a box)
1. The discussions at [ profile] reading221b have begun and OMG they're wonderful.  I'm having such a blast in the comments, I can't even begin to tell you.  If you want to join in, we're talking about holyfant's The Speed of Objects in Motion and the conversation post is here.  You have to be a member to read the discussions, but membership is open to everyone.

(But it's the first discussion and it's going so well and I'M JUST SO HAPPY THAT IT'S GOING WELL AND PEOPLE ARE PARTICIPATING.  You have no idea, guys, [ profile] tiltedsyllogism and [ profile] meredith_ and I have been working like insanity the last couple of weeks.)

2. I got my package from [ profile] kizzia today!  She went to Bletchley Park a few weeks ago and bought me up all sorts of WW2-era goodies, including a ration card tin and a couple of mini-rationing cookbooks.  OLD RECIPES, PEOPLE.  USING RANDOM INGREDIENTS IN WEIRD WAYS.  I love it.  There are so many recipes for tripe in there, I can't believe it.  (I'm not even sure you can buy tripe here.)

(I have yet to find recipes for whale meat.  Whale meat was a thing in the UK during rationing, guys.  Honest to goodness.  I don't entire remember its level of popularity - I don't think it was particularly high - but if I recall correctly, it wasn't included in the rationing scheme, which means you could get all you wanted of it.  Protein's protein, what can I say?)

(It's not like I'd plan to cook a whale.  But I'm curious how one did.)

But tin!  And recipes!  And a lovely hand-written-in-non-period-appropriate turquoise ink letter!

3. Andrew had so much fun playing with his toys this morning that he didn't ask for the TV once.  This is huge.  Usually he asks for it at some point, and I give in because occassionally, I like to shower in the mornings.  We did have a slight meltdown when it came time to get ready for the bus, and he realized he did not have time to watch PBS kids because it was 11am and he was still in PJs and the bus comes at 11.25, but he got over it.

(The downside was no shower for me, but also that I woke up at 4am and never got back to sleep, so by the time I hit 11.25, I was exhausted.  I'm actually kind of surprised I'm still awake right now, especially as I never got a chance for my self-promised coffee at Starbucks, but I think it's mostly adreniline.)

And then Andrew had a really good session at OT, which is good because he had a new OT today, and when we got home he went and played with the neighborhood kids for about an hour before we had to head home...where he ate a bowl and a half of cereal and two glasses of milk and read a bunch of books and then went to bed.  PERFECT DAY.

Bonus: Cleo is curled up on the desk next to my laptop and is purring.  
azriona: (cat in a box)
1. I had a really good talk with Bill that we've both been putting off for...well, months.  I mean, bad that we were putting it off, but really, really good that we had it today, because better late than never.  This would be more positive if I could manage to secure babysitting for Friday night, though.

2. Andrew did not nap, which means bedtime has gone super smoothly.  (Also he had a very good speech therapy session this morning.)

3. The banana cake recipe lied and instead of one layer, I have TWO.  I am currently trying to decide if this means Bill's workplace gets a two layer cake, or if they still get a one-layer cake and I keep the other layer for me.

(I do not need a banana cake in my life, even if it smells really yummy and will have cream cheese frosting.)

Bonus Positive Thing Today:
It's cold enough to wear jeans, and I love jeans weather.
azriona: (cat in a box)
[ profile] emmagrant01 tagged me for the Positivity meme on Friday, and I was sneaky and delayed it until today since we were out of town all weekend and my internet access, which is sketchy and weird and dependant on the whims of a 4-year-old at the best of times, was even worse.  But I did have a very positive weekend - the drive up to DC was mostly smooth, and we had dinner at the Crab Shack with friends, which is something Andrew has been begging to do (literally: begging) for the past few weeks.  "Isa and crab shack!  Isa and crab shack!  I go see Isa at the crab shack!"  I think he believes we went up to DC solely to see Isa at the crab shack, when in reality we went to attend a baptism for a brand-new baby.

The rest of the weekend under the cut )

So, positivity meme:

Rules: During the next five days, post three positive things about your day and ask three people to do the same so the positive attitude can gain some ground.

1. It is raining today, which normally wouldn't be a wonderful thing, but I have a bunch of things that need to go into the attic and therefore it's cool enough that I can actually put them away while Andrew's at school.  This is all an effort to actually clear out the room we intend to use for the baby when it arrives, because until now, the room has served as a larger version of a junk drawer, and looks it.

Behold, the room equivalent of a junk drawer: )

2. Bill figured out a key plot twist for the Medieval Omegaverse I'm writing.  It is a twist of awesome.  The only problem is that it sort of leads into a Part Two of the Medieval Omegaverse. I do not understand how a PWP that was meant to be about 5K and just a fluffy light thing to get me back into the swing of writing after a rather sparse August has turned into an epic novel.  THIS IS NOT HOW I PLANNED THIS STORY, and all that it is really doing is racking up the amount of pie that [ profile] ladyprydian owes me.

3. Everyone is super excited about starting discussions at [ profile] reading221b, and I am super excited that everyone is super excited, and if we're super successful with Round 1, that can only mean really awesome things for Round 2 - including focusing on smaller fics, and the not-blockbuster fics, which makes me just a happy camper all around.  (All six of the upcoming fics are wonderful, but they're also fics that most everyone has read already - or meant to read - and I have to admit I like to be a champion for smaller, often unnoticed fics.  So I really can't wait to get started on those.)

Oh, right, I have to tag.  Okay. [ profile] kizzia. [ profile] earlgreytea68. [ profile] mildred_bobbin, for when she returns from her travels.

(In case you missed it, I'm doing a Writing Meme.)

[ profile] time_converges asked for #4: What are some themes you love writing about?

Love. Hope. Redemption. You know, the big things.

I think more so than theme, I like writing a story. I like writing plot - whether that plot is "How John and Sherlock had their first kiss" to "How Sherlock went Away and left John Pregnant (don't ask) and came back and John was in a coma and there's this nearly-three-year-old-kid now and Sherlock doesn't quite fit in the family and also there's still someone out there who wants John and possibly the kid dead". I like writing something with a mystery and a bit of a twist at the end, so even if you THINK you know what's happening, you really don't and you get to this point in the story when I drop a particular bombshell (think THAT CHAPTER in Mise) that your jaw drops and you go "WHAT THE BLEEDIN' @#$%" and have to lie down for a little bit.

And after all that....I like writing happy endings. I like the lovers to be together at the end, whether it's John and Sherlock or Greg and Molly or the Doctor and Rose or the Doctor and River or Harry and Draco. I think I've written maybe one story where the lovers didn't get there in the end, and that was years ago. (Harry Potter, Peter and Petunia. I still say it could have worked, but needs of the story, you know. Also I didn't quite understand how AUs worked at the time.)

I'm not sure that entirely answers the question - I mean, writing plot and unexpected twists and happy endings aren't exactly themes - but they're what I enjoy writing. Mostly, I like making people think when they read. I had one reviewer tell me she really had to make sure that she was paying attention when she read something I wrote, and that pleased me to no end, because I want you to think. I want people to not only enjoy the second read, but be able to catch things they missed on the first go-round, all those little clues that I'd been leaving from Day One. No idea if that's what people experience - or if they even do a second read - but it's what I'm trying to do, anyway.

So, azriona, your LiveJournal reveals…

You are… 2% unique (blame, for example, your interest in interfaith kids), 24% peculiar, 31% interesting, 23% normal and 20% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing). When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are wary of trusting strangers. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.

Your overall weirdness is: 32

(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
You are weirder than 70% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!


I would argue that looking at whether or not LJ users like "writing" is not the best indication of being herdlike. You have to figure that if someone did not like to write, they would have long since abandoned LJ (or by extension, Dreamwidth) for a place like Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter, which do not necessarily rely on extensive use of words for communication. Assuming they'd ever signed up for LJ in the first place.

(I'm not saying you can't have a wordy blog on those platforms, but that they're really not set up for it.)

And while there's probably people who enjoy writing who don't have LJs...they're probably not necessarily into the journaling aspect of writing, which isn't the same as the creative aspect.

Also? I'm highly amused that this meme thinks I'm popular. And I want to know on what basis it thinks I'm 31% interesting. What does 31% interesting even mean, and does that mean I'm 69% boring as heck? (Whether or not 69 can be boring, I leave to you to decide, and point out the gutter over there.)

Andrew woke up at the ridiculous hour of 5am this morning, after having finally fallen asleep around 10.30 last night. I just managed to put him back down again, because that kid was tye-errrred (and yes, I totally mean the two-syllable pronunciation of the word, he was that exhausted). No idea if his toddler brain will think of this as extension of nighttime sleep, or nap. I suppose it depends on how long he's down.

Anyway, the thought of a day of Andrew on seven hours sleep is somewhat horrifying, so I'm good with whatever we get.

Last night was my first Arabic lesson, conveniently held in the common room in the complex. Despite the fact that it's in the same building where I live, and FREE, I was the only person in the class. Which I suppose makes some sense - I mean, it's a beginner's class and not that many people cycle into a tour in April. But I've met a few of the other spouses, and no one speaks the local language, or seems inclined to learn any. (They also extoll the virtues of having TGI Friday's and McDonalds and access to the commissary, so perhaps this is telling.) The main theme when talking to them seems to be, "Oh, it's not so bad here!"

To which Bill and I have more or less the same response, "Actually, this is paradise. We've lived in bad, and trust us, this ain't it. Are you SURE we've overseas at all?"

(Bishkek had nothing American. NOTHING. Not even McDonalds. There was a MacBurger, but you weren't supposed to eat there because it was widely known to get everyone, even the locals, extremely ill.)

Back to Arabic. I learned how to say a bunch of greetings, including the responses. And because I'm curious like that, I asked for the literal translations. Literal translations are good, because you end up finding out that you know words you didn't know you knew yet. For instance:

Good morning = Sabah hel hear = Morning of goodness
The response = Sabah hen noor = Morning of light

I like that - it's totally a morning-person sort of greeting. I don't think it's possible to greet someone with "Morning of Goodness!" if you're all grouchy.

Anyway, today will totally be full of goodness and light, because we're going to Carrefour to buy a toaster, assuming the toasters are not ridiculously expensive. (I've already seen one for $75. Why are 220 appliances so frickin' expensive? Maybe the roads in America aren't paved with gold, they're paved with cheap toasters.)

The fact that I'm excited about a trip to buy a toaster is probably indicative of something. I think I won't examine it too closely, though. In the meantime, a meme.

Travel Meme

Feb. 1st, 2012 08:47 pm
azriona: (Where have you been today?)
First and foremost: Andrew received his medical clearance. It took less than two weeks, which is really surprising since the first clearance when he didn't have a history of febrile seizures (well, one seizure) took three weeks. I'm not sure why a more complicated clearance would be faster.

Anyway, the next step is travel orders and then we're looking at leaving in March or so. Anybody want to rent a house in Virginia?

So, in honor of Andrew's renewed medical clearance, and the upcoming travel it entails, an appropriate meme:

Andrew coughed all night long, those big hack-up-a-lung, smoking-for-twenty-year coughs which actually woke him up once or twice. In the light of day, however, he's feeling much better if his nose is running a marathon. All the same, we're staying in today and playing with trains and watching movies. Which is really annoying, because it's beautiful outside.

(On a side note: if any mommies out there have suggestions for cough meds for kids 2+ that do not end in "DM", which are on Andrew's no-no list since they lower the seizure threshold, I'd appreciate it.)

Anyway, gacked from [ profile] ladychi:

4. No tag backs.

I dislike tagging, so do it if you like.

The questions I've answered )

My questions for you:

1. Cats or dogs? Why?
2. Favorite sick-at-home activity, other than trying to get better.
3. What song will make you change your radio station?
4. You are going from Point A to Point B. You have a choice of taking the highway or regular roads. Which do you take?
5. Would you rather email someone, or call them?
6. How do YOU take your tea?
7. If you met a handsome man on the subway, and you started talking to him, and you really liked him, and you were both totally clicking (and let's further pretend that those of you who are married are single in this scenario), and you realize after five minutes you haven't even exchanged names, and then he introduces himself to you as Albus Severus.....what do you do? What DO you DO?
8. Favorite toy as a child?
9. Repeating from above: what's your favorite internet guilty pleasure?
10. What current television show should everyone on your flist be watching?
11. It's 3pm, and you're feeling peckish. What do you grab?

Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

I will, of course, do as instructed and request the book from my library, since I just finished up Connie Willis's Blackout and All Clear (both of which were extremely awesome and now I want to reread them again, and also possibly Doomsday Book). I used to like browsing in the library, and picking up titles that were interesting, but it was easier to do that when I wasn't chasing a toddler down the aisles. Andrew is totally not library-trained, unfortunately.
azriona: (Mr Morton)
It really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that I haven't written squat A long time. There are several reasons for this. One of them is, of course, Andrew, upon whom I blame just about everything, because he's usually the cause. His one nap during the course of the day can go anywhere between 45 minutes to 3 hours, and that time is usually consumed with trying to keep the house livable. (Standards of floor cleanliness waver between "eh" and "omg, my child DOES eat off this floor sometimes!")

The other very good reason is because I've been working like mad on the rest of the baby announcement cross-stitches, which I'm happy to say are DONE DONE DONE, and I took the last of them to Micheal's yesterday for framing. At some point, I will post pictures. Maybe Tuesday.

In the meantime, though...I have lots of breathing room before the next cross-stitch project is "due" (one more baby, but not until February, and Aunt Do's retirement in another year and a half), so theoretically, I could spend some time writing. God knows there's enough on the "to write" list that ought to work on. (Yes, [ profile] wendymr, I hear you chanting under your breath about a Left Behind sequel!)

Therefore....stolen from [ profile] earlgreytea68,

gacked from [ profile] ramblinsuze:

You were born during a Third Quarter moon

This phase occurs in the middle of the moon's waning phases, after the full moon and before the new moon.

- what it says about you -

You like to make up your own mind. You may find it hard to relate to mainstream opinions on issues, and you definitely don't always like what's popular. You can work out solutions and give birth to big ideas when left to yourself, and other people will be impressed with your conclusions even if they're not sure how you arrived at them.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at


However, I put in Andrew's birthday, and got this:

You were born during a New moon.
The moon is dark in this phase, because the half that's illuminated by the sun is facing away from Earth.
You want to leave an impression on people and make your mark on the world. When you love an idea, you'll work hard for it, sometimes even dropping whatever it is you're doing to go on to the next new great thing that's captured your imagination. The more freedom you have to chose what you're doing, the busier you'll be.

Well, that describes a toddler to a T, particularly the parts about dropping what he's doing to move on to the next great thing. Toddler attention span? Not large, let me tell you.

I'm feeling much better, except for some reason my voice seems to have disappeared. Andrew is more than making up for it. He's babbling nonstop, and has even pulled out "mama" and "dada", but still somewhat indiscriminately (although frequency increases when the specific parent is in the room).

Drabblers on my flist, question for you. )

Dear Andrew,

I am all about exploration. I totally get that you're massively curious about what's under that there diaper. But Possibly TMI. Definitely gross. Note the tag. )



Today we went to Cub Run RECenter, where there is an indoor activity pool, complete with baby pond, indoor and outdoor slides, and water fountains. We had a blast, and the best part is that it's open year-round, so I'm definitely planning on going again. Year-round swimming! Yay!

(Oh, jeez, I'm even sounding like a mom in my LJ posts. *headsdesk*)

The downside is that what with all the chlorine yesterday, and the chlorine today, I've been lotioning up every ten minutes and it's still not enough. My skin hurts. Ow.

19. A favorite fanart

Hmm. I never much followed the fanart even when I was in fandom, to be honest. But there's one piece I actually own: it's a painting of an original character from one of my HP fics (Adventures in Weasley-Sitting, to be exact). The character is Meredith Weasley (Angelina & Fred's daughter - written well before DH, obviously), and her pet dragon, Bob. It was drawn by [ profile] ani_bester, and I love it. It hangs on the office wall above the computer.
azriona: (Harry Potter Mouse)
Andrew's been napping for two hours now. Not that I'm complaining: I was able to eat lunch, clean the downstairs bathroom, sweep the floor, prep two different baby foods for freezing (zucchini and green potatoes, which is a mix of white potatoes, zucchini, and peas that Andrew likes), fold the laundry, and talk to Bill. I just checked on him, and he's out like a light, sleeping on his tummy and every so often, thinking of sucking his pacifier.

He hasn't eaten since breakfast, which was 8.30 this morning, and it's 2pm now, so when he wakes up, he's going to be starving. It's either growth spurt, or....well....growth spurt, I suppose. All I have to say is it's a very good thing I went with the convertible car seat instead of another infant carrier, since he's too long for most of them as it is. Now if only he'd gain some weight....


So being mobile, Andrew has discovered Cleo's toy basket. We're learning "Don't play with kitty's toys" right along with "Gentle with the kitty" and "Don't play with kitty's scratching boards". Only the last rule seems to have stuck - he'll go right over her scratching boards on his way to her toy basket. Or tail.

Normally, Cleo's not all into her toy basket. Mostly it's a basket of toys she's sniffed, and proceeded to ignore. But recently I've been finding some of the toys scattered around the floor. I figured it was Andrew, because heck, it's not like Cleo plays with them. Plus, these were the catnip toys, and Cleo has never been a fan of catnip - it made her sick as a kitten, and she's been off it ever since.

Yesterday, after Andrew treed the kitty, she stomped right over to the basket, pulled out one of the catnip toys, and proceeded to go to town.

Flist, it's official. Andrew has driven Cleo to drugs. It's only a matter of time before I catch her on the back porch with the squirrels, saying, "Psst....lookin' to buy, lookin' to buy."

18. If you could change one thing about canon, what would it be?

I'd flesh out Peter Pettigrew's backstory. It's not exactly a change, per se, because we just don't know that much. But I'd like to know more about why he did what he did, and I think JKR did us a disservice in not exploring it. Okay, fine, she had a lot going on in that last book, she could hardly put much more in. But there was an interview at one point where she said she'd tell us more about Peter in Book 6, and that never happened. So I do think the intent was there, and she might have more on Peter in those infamous notebooks of hers. If she ever puts out that Harry Potter encyclopedia, he'll be the first person I look up.
azriona: (Default)
Eurgh. The Baby Pictures movie this month is Eat Pray Love, which I have zero interest in seeing. Plus, it's over two and half hour long, and even if Andrew can use the balcony to crawl back and forth, there's no way I'd walk out of the theater having spent nearly three hours following him and still be able to claim some amount of sanity.

Well, that bites.

In which I play a diva. Feel free to ignore. )

17. Your favorite celebs from the movies or fandom

You're kidding me, right? We're counting BNFs as celebrities now?

Well. I suppose they kind of are. That's depressing.

If I'm going to say I like any particular celebrity from the movies, it'll be because I like them for their body of work, not for the fact that they were in the movies. I like Emma Thompson, but I liked her before she was Trelawney. I like Alan Rickman, but I've liked him since Robin Hood (in which he totally stole the movie). I think Emma Watson is gorgeous and I'd like to see her in more things, but I remember reading a few years ago that she's not all that interested in acting in the long-term. (That might have changed; I don't exactly fangirl or follow her every move.)

16. How have you participated in the fandom over the years?

Oh, lord. Can we just say that I went to two conventions and actually presented at one of them, wrote a bunch of fics and helped code and upload other fics for one of the major fic archival sites, served as a beta for countless teenagers who didn't know the difference between its and it's, and was involved in at least one minor wankage (which, as far as I know, never made it to fandom_wank, thank goodness, despite a BNF - not me! - being involved)?

Good. Let's leave it there. I haven't been involved in HP fandom in any major way in four years, and I'm okay with that.
azriona: (Mr Morton)
The Bingo Card fic is officially over 50K. I might actually finish it before the month is out. I just have to tie up all the loose ends. Of which there are many.

Or I could just go with "Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies." The less Andrew naps, the more I like this plan.

On that note: Andrew has slept through the night the last three nights. As in, I put him down to bed. He (sometimes eventually) falls asleep. He doesn't wake up until it's time to wake up in the morning.

This morning being a slight exception in that he woke up at 6am, which was too early for Mommy, so I gave him a bottle and convinced him to nap for another 90 minutes.

I hesitate to say it here, because of course I am jinxing myself, but I don't expect this trend to last much longer anyway, and I'd like to document it for the record. You know, for when he nonchalantly asks me in fifteen years or so for the exact date he started sleeping through the night.
