Never try to mean girl at a Slytherin.

I just need to find a good picture. Suggestions?

People keep making the mistake of thinking that just because I'm nice, I'm a pushover. Or gullible. Or both.

That is...beyond hilarious as a concept.

Fuck everyone today.

(Work issues, though I've run into the same idea outside of work, I suppose. I will elaborate when I'm not vaguebooking on a work computer on a work network.)

Not because I dislike the heat, because I unironically like 90+ degree hot, humid weather, but because it's given the ragweed fresh life. I'm sneezing non-stop.

We were reviewing the kidlet's U.S. history project on Colonial Virginia, which involved Jamestown, and I took it kind of farther than his teacher did. (I do that a lot. History is broadly expansive.) Also I got to explain that Captain John Smith was an asshole, and I got to whine later to Mr. Havoc that I really don't like Pocahontas (the Disney film), not because I don't like Pocahontas (she was awesome), but because John Smith was an asshole, not a romantic lead.

You have no idea how much my dad told me about John Smith and Jamestown when I was a kid. You really have no idea.

So I also learned that the kidlet didn't know why the Church of England formed, and this all culminated in my explaining to him that Henry VIII wanted to get remarried, the Pope told him no, and the Henry said, essentially, "Screw you, I'm the King of England! I'll start my own church!"

It was a glorious moment. I love being a parent.

With Rosh Hashanah starting Thursday night, I'll be offline until after Yom Kippur, around the start of October. Until then, I wish all of you a year blessed with health, safety, and happiness.

Sounds like a bad cover band, Sam

When you end up at a fibre festival and discover gradient-dyed yarn that is both local and geeky: Kara Thrace & Her Special Destiny hand dyed gradient yarn

Unfortunately sold out at the show, but I ended up taking home a cake each of Yes Sir, Captain Tight Pants! and 37?!. Now to decide what to make...

Other than major news incidents, which are mostly weather-related these days. Okay, not really, but I'm not getting into politics right now. I'm not in the right headspace to handle that.

Please tell me how you're doing! What's going on in your life?

Things in my life after the kidlet's bar mitzvah have mostly been terrible and I'm not ready to talk about them yet, which is why I haven't been updating any of them yet. Distract me from that, please.

I'm so far behind on my tv-watching that I'm just now getting to the Supergirl finale. One spoilery quibble with the first half of the finale that relates to U.S. Constitutional law. )

I'm very much enjoying everything about Supergirl otherwise, at least. I haven't even touched on my summer tv watching yet. It's been that kind of summer.

The Alphabet Soup anthology is a long-running (this is the 23rd!) series of gen SG-1 stories, loosely collected by theme. The current Soup is Quantum Mirror fics.

The rules for the anthology are simple: comment to sign up and be assigned a letter. You will be committing yourself to write at least 100 words of gen fic by October 23rd. The only requirements are a minimum word count of 100, touching upon the Quantum Mirror somehow in your story, and keeping your fic gen (yes, even if you're writing an alternate universe; gen ficathons are too few and far between).

Signups for Quantum Mirror Alphabet Soup

Currently, about half the letters of the alphabet have been claimed. Whether you're a seasoned cook or new to Soup fics, you're welcome to join us. :)
