I kind of fucked around all day at work. I never get a damn snow day, it hasn’t happened in the better part of a decade, so I guess I’m sort of resigned to it. At least my coworker, who lives far away, didn’t have to come in– most of our job can be done remotely, but some things, a human has to be present for. I probably actually needed to be physically present to do about 15 minutes of work today.
I did more than that, but. My motivation wasn’t super high.
I kind of fucked around a bunch, and ended up unblocking myself on both some important revisions and a sliiiightly kinky sex scene for the Sled Dogs ‘verse (I’d set a scene at dawn that I’d later realized needed to be at dusk, and it took like, three minutes to fix, but I’d been putting it off for over a week because my whiny ass thought it would be complicated). So, that was good.
(Bodhi laughed in delight and slid his hand across Cassian’s mouth, pinning him down and keeping up the pace. Cassian’s eyes went wide and rolled back a little, his whole body undulating as he arched his back in clear pleasure. “Fuck,” Cassian whimpered against Bodhi’s hand. “Shh,” Bodhi said again, right into Cassian’s ear.)
I won’t get in trouble for fucking around, most likely. But I also didn’t get to any point where I could finish a thing and post it, so I’m sort of bummed there. however. It was still something. And I am feeling weirdly delighted, someone must have recced some of my old shit because I am getting random comments on some seriously old back catalogue. Thank you, whatever strange corner of the Internet you are; I needed that. (Though, the people leaving nobly-suffering Supportive Comments on Full of Grace like “i know u haven’t updated in 2 yrs but it’s still great”… did you… notice that there’s… a sequel that’s like… 2 months old… I guess I need to like, update the main story to point to it, because it appears to be non-obvious to many readers. That’s on me, but I thought it was more common than it is for readers to like, click on the series if there’s a story they like, to see if there’s more or, like, a follow-up or anything. Maybe I’m the only one who does that!)
I’ll probably have weirdo social obligations for much of the rest of the week, but it felt good to get some stuff knocked out today.
Also like. Some locals bitching on Instagram and Facebook about the frozen tundra hellscape where we live. i couldn’t let it slide, I was like, we have had no snow this fucking year, it’s been above freezing pretty much every day, miss me with that shit. I’m bitching because it’s March and I’m tired of it not being spring, but miss me with the whining, it has been the easiest winter in the history of winters and that’s frankly horrifying. If you wish you lived in Arizona fucking move to Arizona, don’t constantly bitch that you don’t live in Arizona. We got two feet of snow in two days, sure, but that’s it for the whole fucking winter. I’m bitching because businesses don’t know when the fuck to fucking close down and get people off the roads, not because I object to the weather existing.
And then another person on FB was bitching that they didn’t get snow and how dare the media hype this. I was like, okay, also bullshit, millions of people are affected by this so maybe if your TV offends you so much turn it off?
I am salty as fuck lately. I need to go back to bed. (On the upside, SUCK IT MUSLIM BAN 2.0 and go Holland on learning from our mistakes!)
