Goodbye, Gene Wilder. Willy Wonka, played by you in your top hat and purple velvet coat, may have been my first second ever crush. (Buster Keaton came first.) Thank you for making me smile over the years with your gentle face, beautiful eyes, and wild, amazing hair. ♥ ♥ ♥

2016, you are tearing my heart out.

Brief mea culpa )

In related news, I haven't written anything in ages. I haven't finished anything in even longer. I barely read anymore. I've lost contact with friends. This is driving me frickin' nuts. Enough with the greyness. I think I've regained enough of my brain and my curiosity and imagination that I might be able to scrape off the rust and revive various unfinished projects.

Sooo … I'm here, quite self-centeredly, to ask for a beta. A beta for a smut fic. A Snarry smut fic, to be precise. I wish it were something more complex and interesting! But I'm not ready to pick up the layered or long-running storylines yet. For me, writing is like exercise: I lose the strength, the endurance, the muscle memory if I'm away from it for too long. I've been fiddling around, trying to bulldoze my way through the re-entry phase of unmitigated crap. To refamiliarize myself with the feel and shape of words. To remember the characters.

The fic? Well, it's a PWP, over 8000 words so far, and very close to completion. It has no redeeming value. Or none beyond the porn and my desire to jump back on the fannish broom. I want to break my writer's block, damn it, and I would be infinitely grateful if someone were to volunteer their services to help push me over the finish line. If anyone is doubtful about the content, feel free to ask!

How is everyone? I've been in and out of the loop, and I missed Leviosa and, well, everything. Any important highlights? News, good or bad? Misery really is a monster of selfishness, and I haven't yet sat down to backread my flist. That's up next, after a quick saunter to the grocer's.

Hmph. I'm having a devilish time getting back to a posting schedule. And I still need to answer comments and post more [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom recs. So here I am, taking the easy way out and jumping on one of the latest circulating memes as a communications shortcut.

Most of this is innocuous, but there's a bit of unpleasantness under the cut for those who would rather avoid such things.

1. I am 56 years old, 5'3", and not impressive in person.

A grab bag of the whimsical, the self-absorbed, and the consequences of city living )

These ten things give an entirely wrong impression of the type of person I am. The ones that actually mean something, that reflect who I've been for most of my life, are two and five. Especially five. Very few of the things on this list tell you what's important about me. Or to me. They're the Cliff Notes/TV special edition of my life. For various reasons, mostly having to do with not burdening or freaking out the people closest to me, I've never told anyone about seven, and very few about ten, because most of my friends would have wanted to see the photos, and as for my family - ahahaha. No.

But now I've told you. I do hope this doesn't change anyone's mind about me. :)

So, after several stressful weeks at work and more than a week of some weird eye problem (which hasn't gone away, it just hurts less), today was glorious. I tackled the garden, worked on my [community profile] help_haiti fic for [personal profile] awrence (which has passed the 40,000 word mark and bids fair to be twice that long, ack), got in a spot of editing for a RL friend who participated in the last NaNo marathon, and generally reveled in being able to read again without fevers and weeping down one side of my face. I am so far behind on fest reading and on fashioning comments, but oh, the joy of good fic!

More idle list-making )

Now, shall I return to writing? Or shall I read and review? What a lovely dilemma. With choices like that, one cannot lose.

So, as I type this, this is what I see out my front window:

Three photos below the cut )

Aren't they amazing? They've been dawdling out in front of my house for hours.
