Leave me a topic to write a post about. Serious, funny, anything in between. Comments are screened!

These will probably be done when I'm back from vacation.  In related news, I'm in Florida, and it is AWESOME.  Spent yesterday and today at Universal, tomorrow, Disney!

So, everyone else is weighing in on this, and while I don't have a whole lot of connection to Milliways anymore, I know there are still characters/players there who used to be very involved with me and mine.

Personally, I'd find it bizarre in the extreme to see another Caspian, Jack Twist, or Anne Shirley.  They are far and away the characters I played most and was most involved with. My characters are largely retired-by-default since I haven't played there in so long, so theoretically I could move pretty much any of them over.  Still, I can't see myself dropping back into the whirlpool that is Milliways with the same characters, although the chance to bring back Caspian from a retirement I never really wanted to push him into, or an alternate version...ahaha.  That is tempting.

I guess this is really just me looking at this and that's interesting.    If any of y'all who were closely involved with my characters have an opinion, I'd be happy to hear it.

...but it is not this day.

Shamelessly stolen from [ profile] wanderlustlover, partially because I am ashamed of giving her the same two characters over and over again.  (Can I be blamed if I love Caspian and Marian?)

Comment with a pair of characters (one has to be mine) and I'll give you a paragraph from my character's POV on how they view yours.

All characters are fair game: OC's, Milliways, Outpost 12, I Did What With Who? and any others.  I'm sitting here at work trying to pretend that if I drink enough water and stay warm enough I can avoid getting very sick, so I need a distraction!

In distinctly more awesome news, Z and I are going to DISNEYWORLD! I can't wait!  We've never had a for real vacation together that wasn't due to needing to visit one of our families.  It's going to be AMAZING.

I watched Trigun: Badlands Rumble today after giving it to my brother in his stocking, and I LOVED it.  If you liked the show, you'll dig the movie.  There's a lot less silliness, awesome action, and, of course, everybody's favorite black sheep priest being a badass and making snarky comments behind shades and a perpetual bent cigarette.

Aside from that, it's been a fabulously lazy vacation, where I recovered from work and baking by writing ALL OF THE WORDS and baking even more.  So, win/win? 

Being home always makes me realize how little I want to go back to Philadelphia, though.  That's probably something I ought to think about a little more carefully, but...things are what they are, eh?

Oh, and I got like, every Sims 3 game and expansion.  My family is a little concerned about the way I've been maniacally giggling at my computer.

How are all of you?

Naturally, after spending last weekend baking and candy making, my mom figured the thing I want to do most once I got home for break was: bake a cake for Christmas Eve dinner.  Traditionally we have this with our family friends, and we always bring a cookie platter, but Mum wanted a cake or something else to go along with it, so here I am, melting more chocolate and crumbling more chocolate cookies.

Okay, you got me, I love it!  

Another family tradition is listening to the Clancy Brothers Christmas album.  It's a mad collection of Irish Christmas songs, but they also, apparently, love to bake, and there's a recipe for an Irish Pudding in the CD cover, though their directions are a bit...unorthodox.  For example, the first ingredient on the list is: two bottles of John Jameson Irish Whiskey.  Not for the pudding!  Well, a splash of it is.  More to brace the baker for the task at hand, like so:

First, pour yourself a strong two fingers of the creature and sip it while you contemplate the ingredients and generally get yourself together. (Note: a member of the opposite sex is always nice to have around when making a pudding and there is enough whiskey to be thoroughly convivial.)

They seem to have the right idea to me!  Now it's watching episodes of Father Ted with the brother while my cake bakes.  Merry Christmas Eve eve!

I'm having so much fun getting treats together to send out in my holiday packages!  Pandora oldies station + baking + pajamas = a good time for Lorna.  I hope to have them all out in the mail on Monday!  After that, it's up to the elves...

I wish Z were around to watch Christmas movies and be silly with me, but he's working, like he has been most nights for the last two weeks.  It's great that he has so many events, but it's kind of lonely over here.  Fortunately, I have Max to keep me company.  When he's not sleeping, that is.

An old favorite, from [ profile] lostinapapercup:

Leave a comment here and I'll pick five of your icons for you to explain, describe, or otherwise comment on.

And I thought this was adorable, so I'm stealing it from [ profile] wanderlustlover:

Leave a ship here that I know, any ship (canon or AU, realized or unrealized), and I will tell you my opinion on:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
what has a season pass in their DVR
who controls the netflix queue
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
who steals the blankets
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries

Ask one, ask both, put a different meme in the comments, whatever.  I just feel like a little interaction.

Some of you may have noticed this pop up on my journal and thought that it was not meant for you.

YOU COULD NOT BE MORE WRONG. If you want delicious home-made treats this holiday, please sign up either at that entry or this one. 

Please let me know:

- if you have any MUST HAVES (caramel, peanut butter, etc)

- any NO THANK YOUs (peanuts, dark chocolate, whatever)

- any preferences (sweet and salty mix, candy rather than cookies)

This will be the last call for a sign up, so I can get to bakin' and sending!  Go ahead, you know you want something delicious to come in the mail...

I'm sooooooo close:

11242 / 15000 words. 75% done!

If I can get 12,000 fairly polished words done in time to hand in at my 5:30pm class tonight, I'll take the night off.
