Hiatus … already in progress

I miss Tumblr. 

I miss Tumblr so much.

But because I have the time management skills of a very small child with impulse control issues and real life and work and all the stuff has been overwhelming in its business I haven’t been on Tumblr.

For a long-ass time, apparently.

And I miss Tumblr.

(Has it really been that long?)

I miss those hazy post-lunch hours at work when when things were foggy enough and slow enough that I could be online reading posts and reading fic but, for the time being, those afternoons are gone. Instead of haze and mellow and fog I’m in a bright room after lunch — a bright, ugly room full of people (nice people, thank god) where everyone is talking at once and it’s really hard to sink into any part of the lovely, lovely internet, let alone Tumblr. Meetings are the devil.

(Also haven’t seen any of the new season of Person of interest, and avoiding Tumblr because I don’t want to be spoiled.)

(Though I’ve been spoiled enough to have very — unrealistically? — high hopes for Shaw/Root, and to think that maybe we get to meet the real Joss Carter at last.)

(And oh god there’s new fic in the POI tags on Pinboard that I side-eye occasionally and sigh over because not reading it causes actual physical soul-pain.)

So: this tumblr is on hiatus. Temporary hiatus until I get my act together and figure out how to live my life like a grownup who doesn’t have the luxury of swaths and swaths of free time but still makes time for the really important stuff like fic, and Tumblr, and fandom.

... he sent me a link to Excedrin Migraine and the sound of my screams filled the world.

  • Condescending Middle-Aged Male Co-worker: We missed you yesterday!
  • Me: How'd the [really unimportant] afternoon meeting go?
  • CMAMC: Oh, fine. Were you sick?
  • Me: Yeah, I had a migraine.
  • CMAMC, looking nonplussed: Oh, don't they have a pill for that?
  • Me, really not wanting to have this conversation again, as I've had some variation of it too many times for one lifetime: Yeah, there are several medications you can take, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.
  • CMAMC, in an almost-whisper, with an air of conspiracy that made me want to impale his dumb pasty ass on a stag head and rip out his lungs but probably not eat them because, ew, pretty sure CMAMC's a smoker: Well, my wife used to get those but now she takes a pill and, poof!
  • Me: Poof?
  • CMAMC, smiling like he's imparting some great gift of knowledge: Yup, no more headache! Doesn't slow her down.
  • Me, edging toward the elevator: That's great.
  • CMAMC, who is now on my List: I'll call my wife, get you the name of it. She used to spend hours, you know, under the weather, when she had her migraines, but these pills really helped.
  • Me: OK, thanks, I appreciate it!
  • CMAMC: I'll email you, or have my wife call you.
  • Me, wondering if Mrs. CMAMC has a first name: 'kay-bye!
  • So I gave him a little wave, fled to my office and forgot about it until ...

Written for a prompt at meme of interest, that asked for Reese to be undercover when Finch is captured by the bad guys; Reese has to torture him or appear to do so or his cover will be blown and they’ll both be killed.

I’m soooo behind on my fic reading, POI fic in particular, but I had to rec this. Finch does something in the first few paragraphs that, well, it didn’t shock me exactly, but it did make my whole upper body tense up. Anyway, so good, very IC for both characters, recommended!

breaking bad meme: two side characters

OK, so I’ve been mainlining BB via Netflix for the last couple of weeks and I almost wish I hadn’t bothered because of course I always fall in love with the complex morally ambiguous characters only to have my heart peeled like a grape. Or, in this case, peeled like a grape, bitten in half, spit out and stomped on.

*whimpers piteously* I have so many lingering Gus questions that will probably never be resolved or even addressed. Damn you, show.

But oh my god how amazing was this character?

So I guess I started a fic where Reese finds out Finch lives in a brothel?

Ah, the crap you find culling old files. Why is it set at Christmas? Where was this going? Does Finch run an escort service? Where the hell is Bear? My “notes” say Finch rents Fusco a room there after he’s kicked out of his place, and there are notes about OCs that make me want to stick a fork in my eye. IDEK.
