Reblog if it’s okay for your followers to leave you an ask telling you what the one thing is they remember you for as a writer. Is it a scene or a detail or a specific line? Is it something like style or characterization? Is it that one weird kink they never thought they’d be into, but oh my god wow self-discovery time?

There are a couple of workmen doing things to the driveway today. (Expanding it, I believe, but no one tells me anything. They could be disposing of red mercury for all I know.)

But anyhow. The cats, who like to be outside, do not like strangers. At all. So the way I knew that the workmen had returned to do more work was to see, one by one, the cats come shooting into the house. Like clowns out of a car. ZIP ZIP ZIP ZIP. I tell you, the Thunderbirds have nothing on my cats' formation and speed. XD

Up at Daily Science Fiction this morning, a little thing about a unicorn and a homeowner's association. Enjoy!

Also, if for some reason you missed my story, Deathlight, in last year's Lightspeed, it's been turned into an audio play by the folks at Fancy Pants Gangsters. They have a number of other short plays up at their site as well - check them out!

so my posts-think-backlog is growing

My wrist is still borked. Typing is painful and probably a bad idea (and really annoying one-handed.)

Ultrasound and bone scan this week.

--Visited a local computer fix-it store that has lots of plants and a dog in the store! They said that while the part is cheap, the labor for replacing the port is several hundred dollars. And there may be other things wrong with this computer too. Told them I'd think about it.

--Started watching Black Sails, which is violent as all hell but I like the queerness and the politicking and the glimpse into pirate society. They must use a filter that makes blue really shine, and there are plenty of blue-eyed actors on the show.

--Playing Dragon Age: Inquisition on the xbox 360.

--It's been about 3 months since my last nerve block (already!) so it's time for another one; but I won't be able to get in for the appt for another few weeks.

 I've been pretty bad about updating here, and now my fanfic is scattered all over the place. 

I'll slowly be trying to move things over to AO3, and until then, I'll leave up the indexes to LJ fic before I lock everything down there.

How to resuscitate dying electronics

So I have one of those Apple Time Capsules. Mine is clearly on the way out, as a couple months ago it stopped backing anything up no matter how much I reset it; it just kept insisting it wasn't on the network. I was getting more and more concerned about not having any working backups (well, other than my writing, which is on Dropbox) and getting tired of clicking past error messages saying "no backups for 45 days" and so on.

I therefore decided to buy an external hard drive because apparently you can get 1 TB for about $50 now and you don't even need to plug it into an outlet because it draws power over USB and also it is basically the size of my smartphone. None of these things were the case the last time I bought an external hard drive. I am impressed.

So I went to start backing up my hard drive just now and I discovered... that my Time Capsule's last backup was 5:40 am. This morning. The drive that hasn't been working for two months spontaneously decided to start working again because I showed up with a replacement.

Well, I guess that's one way to fix things.

(Don't worry, I'm still doing another backup anyway.)

Friends. I held a seder yesterday. It was amazing. I want to tell you all about it. At great length. If you like, you can skip to the bottom where there are adorable photos.

Saving/improving someone's life via blood transfusion would not be possible without medical... science. :D

So yes. Blood donation successful! Slowly but surely working my way toward my 4-gallon pin, 56 days at a time. :) If doing every darn thing I can in the week preceding an appointment to make sure my iron passes muster is what it takes, and evidently that's the case lately, then that's what it takes. It is entirely worth it.

Donating blood on Earth Day seems right, somehow. I can't entirely articulate that one as yet, but it does.

No one has yet recognized my Franklin (as opposed to Watson and Crick, the thieves) shirt for the reference it is, alas. Wearing it today feels like a tiny dual victory just the same.

This is a very disjointed post. :)
