The reveals are now up over at [livejournal.com profile] sshg_promptfest . Please head over and spread a little love to all the authors and artist - I fully intend to over the next few days (I have so much to catch up on!).

Here is mine, which also happens to be my first foray into Discworld. Let's hope I did it some small justice. *grins*


Title: Almost Like Magic
Prompter: [livejournal.com profile] delphipsmith 
Beta(s): The lovely, LJ-less RNR
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): None.
Prompt: Snape has been appointed a lecturer at Unseen University; he and Hermione attend their first faculty soiree.

Summary:
Hogwarts' newest Professor is in a bit of a pickle. Hot on the heels of one of the country's most dangerous magical creatures, she's only gone and found herself transported to another world mid-chase. A world that is flat and disc-shaped, where magic doesn't work quite as it's supposed to, and where the local Librarian has a distinct taste for bananas. It's unfortunate, too, that this new world is also home to the last person she wants to see.

Oh, and there's still the matter of that creature to deal with.

Bugger.

via alatefeline: The wonderful [personal profile] conuly has been attempting to feed, medicate, and shelter two semi-feral kittens, and has finally got them into a safe contained space. Anyone in the greater NYC area interested in two baby kitties who are a bit wild and shy but young enough to learn to love people? If not, once they've been checked up and cleaned up and properly treated for eye troubles, they'll be headed to a shelter.

I am now the proud owner of a decorative mac book-shaped brick. A brick containing 8,000+ words of Sanctuary, Part IV, and no current way of retrieving said words until I get home on Monday.

Today is my posting day at SoG.

I also had a migraine.

Fuck everything.

Science for Babies!

From the article: The books introduce subjects like rocket science, quantum physics and general relativity — with bright colors, simple shapes and thick board pages perfect for teething toddlers. The books make up the Baby University series — and each one begins with the same sentence and picture — This is a ball — and then expands on the titular concept.

Also: Henry, meanwhile, gives the books a qualified endorsement. "I like it half and I didn't like it half," says Henry. The half he didn't like? It's "for babies."

NPRs list of 100 favorite comics and graphic novels includes Stand Still Stay Silent which I know someone on my list raves about every once in a while. Also, O Human Star, which I adore. But no Strangers in Paradise. Really? What's up with that? 



Happy Birthday!

My car was hit yesterday. As I was moving on a green light, a young man tried to change lanes but didn't see my car. The paint was scraped along the side of my car and the front fender crumbled in on his. I thought I was fine at first but my knee aches and my back aches. ;-(

As you may have heard Photobucket wants to charge $400 per year to allow you to post a photo on a third party site. I have been having a frustrating time finding some place that will replace it; things don't work well with Chrome. I've had an endless loop of stupid with Flicker that I had a account with at one time but now remember nothing about it. Anyway, Photobucket is allowing (just, I think)paid accounts that are in good standing to do the usual thing until 2018.

So this is what I wanted to post. I said you had to add booze to win )

I'm trying to do some walking for exercise and my reward was getting a blister on my bunion.
