Bleargh!  
Working in an office on a Sunday (as opposed to romantically writing freelance in a cafe while having the friendly staff pop by with regular cups of coffee to ask questions that make you sound Incredibly Interesting (I tip well, and our local caff resembles a performance art space half the time)) is a TERRIBLE WASTE OF A SUNDAY.

Though at least I felt morally virtuous in cheering up my friend who was also there, and we were able to have a little sing-along, which was when Security came by to check we were all right ... but who expects office sanity on the weekend?

I have an enormous amount of writing to accomplish in the next nine days. Please feel free to nag. I rate the probability of me finishing it at about 74%. This figure will be revised down to about 52% if it turns out that Sarah Palin actually resigned because of something irresistibly HILARIOUS.

Good luck in finishing your writing! ♥

Thank you!

Good luck with your writing! I know how that feels a little bit. I have a drabble that i promised someone at least a month ago, I have lost my first two rough drafts and am now trying to work on another. Not to mention the fic that I hate and won't write itself.

BTW Do you ever sleep? I have noticed a couple of times that you have posted stuff at like 2am. :D
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:03 pm (UTC)
I'm usually in bed by 3 ... I'm not entirely certain I ever quite adjusted to Australian time ;-)

Good luck with your writing, too!

I don't believe her fingers could be pried off power unless there was something really intersting going on. Surely only a matter fo time till we find out waht it is.


Alaska freedom party!!!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:08 pm (UTC)
I live in hope that it will involve her husband's crossdressing, but in all likelihood it's something tedious along the lines of theft, graft and misuse of power.

Do they need any more freedom? They seem quite feral as it is. (How goes the house and unwanted guests?)

Ppoorly. I've thrown away most of my winter wardrobe that was nder the bed, and now going to hoover, steam clean and wash the covers for the tenth time and lay down poison as a holding measure

And find a hotel for the night.

There is a household insect spray that contains the main killing ingredient for them. Alas, so many years since I took a boy's room apart to solve the same problem that I cannot tell you the brand or even the chemical. But the internet will know!

And I recorded Rove to watch the Potter interviews (because I like to show willing) and his coverage of Michael Jackson's death had the banner line 'Jack of it'.

I suspect I might like Rove more than I think I do ...

(Because I'm a pedant) Independence!


Also, norabombay has a list of things it could be, and a bit of a comments-party.

This one is the most coherent-sounding idea yet.

I'm semi-ashamed to say that upon reading that, my first concern was that Spenard might go under if that was so, and that would be a crying shame as they are indeed the leading building supply place.

Yet it's highly believable, if they were being consistent with their practices in Fairbanks -- Dad mentioned to me (upon going out of there with shelf brackets) that due to the Good Ol' Boys' Network, he had paid the contractor rate for the shelf brackets, not the consumer rate, despite his not being a contractor. (Dad built our house himself, but with attention to building codes and safety, and had a large number of home improvement projects, but wasn't in business doing that sort of thing.)

It does seem most likely. Which is a shame. Threesome with a lumberjack would have RULED!
Azure Jane Lunaticazurelunatic on July 5th, 2009 01:47 pm (UTC)
More likely to be a musher than a lumberjack.

...Now I am picturing a weed-and-booze fueled week-long party at someone's reasonably remote cabin. (Weed as opposed to other illegal things, because it's a bit of a local vice.)

But, evidently, not so remote that some local teenager Up To No Good did not stumble across it, look in through the un-draped picture window (very common, actually), realize what was going on, and come back with video camera.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:48 pm (UTC)
That teenager will be in therapy FOREVER!
Azure Jane Lunaticazurelunatic on July 5th, 2009 01:53 pm (UTC)
Are you kidding? No, they'll be in YouTube hog heaven and giggling for *months*.

(I say this because Nora linked me to mythagowood the night before last, which has REDEFINED HORROR for me. Look at the interests list on the profile before clicking into ANY of their entries. MY EYES WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. And I say that as a veteran of the internet who is no longer shocked by goatse.cx)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:55 pm (UTC)
I am SO not clicking that link. I am easily scared!
Azure Jane Lunaticazurelunatic on July 5th, 2009 02:04 pm (UTC)
I attempted to describe the horror to my best friend without actually describing the content. I wasn't accurately able to convey it.

Some fangirls should not be left alone with the following items: Photoshop, pictures of the SPN boys, and pictures of adult entertainers.

That sounds pretty standard so far, right?

Item: When normal bodily fluids that one would expect to encounter in an adult entertainment scenario can no longer be measured in units like "teaspoon" or "tablespoon" and you have to switch to "cups" or "buckets" ... there's a problem.

Item: When a body part shows obvious signs of being photoshopped from something that girls have and boys don't into something that boys have, and it's Not That Kind of Porn... >_<

Item: When you can use the phrase "buttsnake"... (it *is* a creative representation of a demon, which was what they were trying for...)

AAAAIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! STEP AWAY FROM THE ACKLES!

But thanks, I am going back to writing in a bid to remove that image!

I'm desperately hoping that she's Mark Sanford's secret Argentinean lover. Or that she's really resigning because of a lucrative TV deal... "Sarah & Todd Plus Six," anyone? If that happens, NO ONE will be getting any work done.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:37 pm (UTC)
You know the end days are need when mad Republican governors start having affairs with each other.

If I say John Major and Edwina Currie to you, will you look at me blankly?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:52 pm (UTC)
As I said to a friend at the time: I find it incomprehensible that their spouses would want to sleep with either of them, let alone anyone else.

I stand by that.
shadowclubshadowclub on July 5th, 2009 02:38 pm (UTC)
Omg, if they get the TV deal I wonder how long it will until they divorce? 1 season?

WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
shadowclub: lunashadowclub on July 5th, 2009 02:37 pm (UTC)
I'm convinced Sarah Palin resigned because her son has become pregnant. MPREG is always a good reason to resign, right?

The Republicans can never know.

Good luck on your writing! Ugh, office on a Sunday:(

I want to go to your coffee shop!
alisannealisanne on July 5th, 2009 03:06 pm (UTC)
*giggles*
Do not let the Republicans distract from writing teh porn, OMG! Where are your priorities, girl? *g*

Seriously, good luck! I'm with you, I have an insane amount to do before Azkatraz and comic-con. *sigh* And I have no odds on how I'll do yet.

I heard she resigned because she wants to run for president in the next election - surely that counts as irresistibly hilarious.

Although, I suppose, not so funny if she actually won.
Admiral of Strange Shipsnoeon on July 5th, 2009 07:02 pm (UTC)
Love the Palin codicil. I'm hoping that you finish your writing AND that it is something unbearably delicious to feed our Schadenfreude.

Your local cafe sounds marvelous.
grey_hunter on July 6th, 2009 07:48 am (UTC)
which was when Security came by to check we were all right

He probably just felt left out. Should have asked him to join in.

Also, write!

I second the 'bleargh!'. I really did mean to finish that draft and email it to you, but my evening for accomplishing this was eaten by the Hobart drive. Also, I have been laid low by an RTI. *sends you hugs* I'm going to phone you very soon to discuss a visit! XXX
