A CONVERSATION DAN AND I HAD YESTERDAY:

Dan: Hey, can you call Mr. Smith and tell him we'll be starting tomorrow morning and possibly dropping equipment off this afternoon?
Me: Sure.

LATER:

Dan: Did you call Mr. Smith yet?
Me: No, I make those calls at the end of the day, because you always end up changing your mind and then I have to call the customer back and I look like an asshole.
Dan: Well, I'm definitely not changing my mind on this one, and this guy's really needy and he'll start calling me if he doesn't hear anything, so can you call him now?
Me: Yeah, sure.

Me on the phone: Hi Mr. Smith, this is Sarah from [The Terrible Company I Work For]. I'm calling to notify you that we'll be starting work on your project tomorrow morning. You may see some equipment delivered later today. If you have any questions blah blah blah.


JUST NOW:

Mr. Smith: Hi, you called me yesterday and said you'd be starting work today, but nobody's here.

YOU KNOW. FUN TIMES. GREAT TIMES. THE BONUS ON THIS IS THAT I STRESSED MYSELF THE HELL OUT YESTERDAY BECAUSE DAN TOTALLY SPRUNG THIS JOB ON ME AND IT DIDN'T LOOK LIKE THE PERMITS WOULD CLEAR IN TIME FOR US TO START TODAY? TURNS OUT THEY DIDN'T NEED TO. AMAZING. WONDERFUL. PERFECT.

REMEMBER WHEN THIS WAS CIRCULATING IN LIKE 2009? Man. Who even wrote this first? We'll never know. IT'S BEEN LOST TO THE AGES.

The problem with LiveJournal is that we think we're close, but really, we know nothing about each other. DID THAT STATEMENT EVER EVEN MAKE SENSE? The problem with Tumblr is that it's a nightmare platform when it comes to communication and the problem with Twitter is that it's VERY FAST-MOVING AND FLEETING AND SUCCINCT so even though I'm sure you all KNOW ME DEEP IN MY SOUL you are probably missing some basic biographical information.

So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about, or something you've always been curious about but have never asked, or something completely silly that you'd like me to answer for kicks. No limits on the range of questions, either: ask me anything you want to know about, whether it's a fannish opinion or a question about a fic of mine or trivia about my real life or my thoughts on events in the offline world.

Ask away.


IT'S MY BIRTHDAY AND I LOVE TALKING ABOUT MYSELF, INDULGE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YEAR END MEMES! FINALLY! I'm warping these somewhat this year because some of these questions are never relevant to me and also so many of them are just "THIS WAS A BUILDING YEAR AND NOT MUCH HAPPENED" and also the general one and the fandom one end up repeating each other and also let's not pretend like I live a life where I can separate fandom questions out from questions about my actual life. SO:

general/fandom memeCollapse )

----------

ALSO I CAN DO THE FIC MEME BECAUSE I WROTE NINE FICS [OR SIX AND THREE HALF FICS, W/E, CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT] THIS YEAR, WHAT WHAAAAAAAAAAAT. Nine stories, six-ish fandoms, 13,233 words. A RECORD-BREAKING YEAR, IN OTHER WORDS, even though it'd be practically nothing for a lot of people. I DID STUFF! WRITING IS GARBAGE. I DON'T ACTUALLY LIKE DOING IT.

fic meme!Collapse )

Maaaaaaaaaaaan Yuletide reading took it out of me this year. I PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE QUIT, AND I DIDN'T, AND THAT'S ON ME, but life somehow felt more demanding this year than it was when I was spending this time of year working 60-hour weeks and somehow still doing an obscene amount of Yuletide reading. WHO KNOWS. MAYBE I'M TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT.

the angriest recs post of all timeCollapse )

ETA, I COMPLETELY FORGOT: I wrote this:

greater than or equal to
Some Girls (BBC)

Most things about the world make sense if you know which numbers to pay attention to.

WHAT A SURPRISE THAT THE FIC THAT WAS BASICALLY A LOVE LETTER TO SPREADSHEETS WAS BY ME, AMIRITE? Okay but that's not why we're ETA-ing, we're ETA-ing because of the OTHER Some Girls fic in the collection, BLT by sophieisgod, which is about Saz coming out as bi and then Saz/Holli, and it's GREAT, and I'M LEGIT IN AWE OF HOW SHE NAILED THE FEEL OF THE SHOW, WHAT A GOOD JOB.

Rec posts will come in a week or so [I'm at work right now but the TABPOCALYPSE situation on my computer is insane. 180 TABS REPRESENTING A MINIMUM OF 500 FICS? GOOD TIMES. GREAT TIMES. GONNA DO IT.] as will a ~REAL LIFE~ post all about my 72-hour return to working retail, but that is all for LATER.

FOR NOW, here are the only truly important recs, aka the stories that were written for me!

Secret Santiago: SOMEONE WROTE ME A TREAT TO FILL MY "SECRET SANTA AT THE PRECINCT" PROMPT! All you need to know about this is that a) it's a great way to get your B99 fix in the middle of this ENDLESS-FEELING STRETCH OF NO NEW EPISODES, and b) JAKE CALLS AMY SANTI-AWKWARD. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I'M NOT EVEN GONNA SAY ANYTHING ELSE BC YOU SHOULD JUST BE READING IT.

And then there's my gift story, which I am screaming and pulling my hair out over 24/7/365:

not properly: THIS IS EXACTLY WHY YULETIDE IS AMAZING BECAUSE BAD MACHINERY FIC DIDN'T EXIST AND THEN I REQUESTED IT AND SOME BEAUTIFUL ANONYMOUS UNICORN WROTE IT FOR ME AND NOW BAD MACHINERY FIC EXISTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! BAD. MACHINERY. FIC. EXISTS. And not only that, but there are moments that nail John Allison's tone so specifically and perfectly that I CAN LITERALLY SEE THE PANELS AS HE WOULD DRAW THEM. And there's so much Charlotte and it's such a nice look at the kids when they're another few years older and there are such great asides about Tackleford's general weirdness and OH, DID I MENTION THERE'S AN ENTIRE SECTION THAT'S BASICALLY JUST LINTON THINKING ABOUT CHARLOTTE? BECAUSE THERE'S AN ENTIRE SECTION THAT'S BASICALLY JUST LINTON THINKING ABOUT CHARLOTTE. I HAVEN'T TALKED A HUGE AMOUNT HERE ABOUT HOW INTO LINTON AND CHARLOTTE I AM BC IT'S A FAIRLY RECENT DEVELOPMENT THAT SNOWBALLED RAPIDLY THROUGH CONVERSATIONS WITH coldbam BUT HOLY GOD. I'M DEAD. I'M DYING. I'M GONE.

BEING A CAUTIOUS PERSON, I try not to give anything official ALL TIME TOP TEN status until it's really had time to settle in, because otherwise you end up making a Top 10 OTPs post with characters from Entourage on it, and within months you're like ".................why," and you just have to live with your choices.

AND SO, THERE IS A TWO YEAR WAITING PERIOD.

AND FOR YOUNG JUSTICE, THE WAITING IS UP, AND THE RANKINGS ARE IN, AND THERE HAVE BEEN SOME UPSETS.

For starters, I want to commemorate this moment, exactly two years since I saw Conner scream "WHY CAN'T I FLY?" and knew it was love. I'D LIKE TO THANK BRITA AND TORI FOR GETTING ME TO WATCH THIS SHOW, AND FOR TAKING THIS AMAZING EMOTIONAL JOURNEY WITH ME. I'd also like to draw your attention to the timestamp on that post I just linked vs. the timestamp on this one. YES, I AM THAT GOOD AT WHAT I DO.

And now I'd like to present:

IT'S NOT OVER. IT'S NEVER BEEN OVER.Collapse )
