So, today started out badly - I got to the bus stop just to realize that my metrocard was not in my pocket. I pretty much ran all the way home, didn't find it in the street - not that I was expecting to - or anywhere in my house. This is a problem as I buy monthly metrocards and this one was still good until practically the end of April. So, after much tossing things about, I finally gave up, grabbed the bus fare in quarters, and headed back out.
Then, I couldn't figure out where I left my keys. Back downstairs to grab them off of the dresser. Then
, it started to rain, and I didn't have my umbrella. Back inside the house and downstairs to grab it from my room. Somehow, I still made it to work by 9. I'm still not sure how I accomplished that.
By 10, I was jittery, anxious, and all around not feeling well - all signs that point to a cup of coffee that was definitely not decaf, despite what I told the man behind the counter at the deli. I ended up with a migraine by the afternoon.
Luckily, my dad called with some good news - we have a grandfather clock in our living room. My metrocard fell between the clock and our entertainment center. I don't even know how that happened - my best guess is it flew out while I was pulling my keys out of my coat pocket or putting my ipod in. He found it while he was chasing after one of my cats on his way out the door. This is a huge relief as it is 89 bucks I most definitely do not have that I don't have to pay again now.
That and the following sentence posted by the mods on sncross_bigbang
today made my day brighter:Your rough draft needs to be either 15,000 words and completed, or at least 10,000 words with more than 80% of the fic done.
THANK THE DEAR AND FLUFFY LORD. Because there is less than two weeks left, and I am already scrambling to figure out where the hell my plot is supposed to go. Watching the entire first season of Castle was not as helpful in prompting the muse as I was hoping it would be, and this week's episode just put new ideas in my head. Which is also not at all helpful. Ugh.
This past weekend, I visited anythingbutgrey
in DC, and it was awesome. We marathoned all of the Jo and Katie!Ruby episodes of Supernatural - because only we would be crazy enough to do something like this - and ate cupcakes. And reminisced on the absolute epic win of Season 2. And shamelessly loved on the kick-ass females.
Generally, we just flailed a lot.
And ended up walking for three hours around DC on Saturday - which was completely unplanned.
We're just that awesome?
Suffice to say I didn't want to leave :(
