In other news, I finally watched Inception last night and promptly fell asleep about 30 minutes in. I don't know if it was the quality of the movie or the quality of my drink, but I was hella confused when I woke up and tried to watch the rest of the movie. I will say that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is hot has grown up quite nicely.

So, I have embarrassingly gotten myself addicted to playing my son's Lego Star Wars Wii game. I started off helping him solve some of the puzzles and now I'm playing it by myself after he goes to bed. Apparently, I'm an eight-year-old boy! Has anyone tried the Lego Harry Potter game?

Yuletide fic: A Winter's Night (Gaiman, Graveyard Book)

I've been in a fannish malaise lately. I haven't been doing a lot of reading or writing or commenting *sorry about that*, but I did sign up for [community profile] yuletide this year. I was lucky to get assigned The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, a book I found so charming.

This is a short little gen fic centered on a snowy winter's night when Bod was about 10 years old. Written for [personal profile] ravenbell.

Title: A Winter's Night
Characters: Nobody "Bod" Owens, Silas, Lisa Hempstock
Summary: A snapshot of the old graveyard on a cold, snowy night.
Rating: G

It proved to be a very Gaiman yuletide for me as my gift was written in his Stardust verse. If you haven't had the chance, please read An Instant of Understanding by the loupe. A charming and romantic ficlet about Una of Stormhold and Dunstan Thorne's reconciliation.

Yuletide rec and Merry Christmas

I truly hope to everyone who celebrates Christmas that it was all you wished for.

We're spending the holiday with my mom this year, which means it's a little quieter than usual, but you'll find no complaints about that from me. The roast is in the oven, my husband is hooking up the new Wii, my son is playing with a large, empty box, and my daughter is reading (♥).

I also got a wonderful gift this morning when my yuletide gift was posted. The fandom is Stardust by Neil Gaiman, and it's a romantic gem of a fic describing Una of Stormhold and Dunston Thorn's reconciliation. I know Stardust is all about Tristin and Yvaine, but I found Una and Dunston's story more interesting, maybe because I'm closer to their age. I'm a hopeless romantic and this just pushed all my buttons. And it's exactly what I asked for too.

An Instant of Understanding.
Dunstan had once hoped, although never truly expected, that he would see her again. He focused on Tristan instead, even though every day seemed to bring another reminder of Una. His laugh, his smile... Especially his smile. Truly, he was his mother's son. And yet...

Here they were, the both of them.

Una of Stormhold/Dunstan Thorn (1,045 words) Unrated but probably a G.

Yuletide Letter

Dear Yuletide writer,

First of all, I apologize for not getting this letter up sooner. I've been suffering from a bad cold, and I'm still a bit feverish so bear with me if I don't totally make sense. Second of all, thank you so much for agreeing to write something for me.

Harry/Draco LDWS Round Four

There's still a few hours left to vote in the latest round Harry/Draco Last Drabble Writer Standing contest. This week's prompt is Enough with this.... There's angst o'plenty, but I'm sure it's all part of the mod's evil plan to reward us with a happy ending down the road.

There are only six drabble to choose from. Vote here! Polls close at midnight G.M.T.

I have a new obsession. Mad Men!

I'm midway through season two. I can't stop watching. I've worked in advertising for many years, and my mother was a secretary at a large Manhattan ad firm between 1962-1965 (she quit after she got married). One of her room-mates was even a model. Now I want to sit her down and see if she has any good stories.

I have the attention span of a gnat, which is why I never seem to finish anything, but I'm pretty laid back regarding my friends. So I'm half-and-half about this result. I do like the color orange though.
