I really should be working.

News from my life: On Her Majesty's Secret Service is the strangest Bond flick *ever*. I still haven't dragged myself through the last couple hundred pages of Quicksilver. (But I'm going to win my battle against that book, I really am.) I made banana bread. I need to make cheesecake because I bought six slabs of cream cheese for that specific purpose. I got addicted to Battlestar Galactica (Fridays at ten, definitely worth your time.)

Concerts possibly in my future: Speakeasy at the Middle East on Thursday July 21st, Speechwriters LLC at the Paradise on Monday July 25th, Carbon Leaf at Copley Square on Thursday August 11th. Whee! All fantastic bands and you should come too. That last one's even free.

Meanwhile, one of my favorite time-wasting guilty pleasures. )

Sheesh, people.

I was going to be all economical and just borrow a copy of HP&tHPB from someone in my family when they got done, but you people are making me want to read it RIGHT THIS INSTANT just so I can click on all those taunting LJ-cut-tags. (And thank you for cutting spoilers, people, it's very much appreciated.) Oh man, so much temptation...

[livejournal.com profile] minttown1 had this challenge about a million years ago (read: in July) and I wrote something that sort of fit, kind of, and then it sat on my hard drive waiting for me to decide whether or not it sucked, and eventually I remembered it was there and decided it sucks a little bit but not too much. So. This is set in Roger Zelazny's Chronicles of Amber universe, and it probably won't make sense if you haven't read at least one of the books. (And if you haven't, you should, now.) Deirdre's POV, although keep in mind I haven't read the books in ages and about all I could remember about her was the scene in... Sign of the Unicorn, maybe?... where Fiona says in regards to an attempted assassination (I think) that it has to be one of the brothers, because "Flora lacks the brains, Deirdre the guts, Llewella the motivation, and I, of course, am innocent of all but malice." Or something like that. From which you can conclude this is not Deirdre the warrior princess. And maybe it isn't really all that much about her anyways. So if the disclaimers haven't scared you off... [568 words, untitled.] )

I'm not quite sure why I haven't written anything since Monday -- I definitely spent a significant portion of my time reshelving this week mentally composing sarcastic entries. Can't remember any of them, of course, but I'm still determined to write something, at least.

Let's see. The network at school is approaching the status of "actual network", as opposed to "a server closet containing tens of thousands of dollars worth of space heaters". The space heating capacity of the servers has been totally appreciated by certain people who can't put up with how enthusiastically the central air in the new building has used, but it's nice to be (almost) able to do something a bit more like what all that equipment was intended for. :P

Also, [livejournal.com profile] minttown put up this coffee shop fic challenge last week some time, which I wasn't going to write anything for so I didn't comment but then there was this idea that I had to write. So now I have 560 angsty words that upon re-reading appear to actually be more about my personal subconscious Issues, maybe, in a bizarre twisted way, than about Deirdre. (And I don't even get why her -- I don't even think I liked her when I read the Chronicles of Amber. And yet.) In fact, it's also barely about a coffeeshop. Mostly outside a coffeeshop, really. *sigh* I may yet inflict this upon y'all anyways, so consider this fair warning...

Everyone needs to read Albus Dumbledore's Inbox right now. Especially if you're in such dire need of a laugh as I was. IMHO later chapters are better than earlier.

Favorite excerpts include:

From: Madame Pince <bookworm@hogwarts.edu>
To: Prof. Albus Dumbledore <bumblebee@hogwarts.edu>
Subject: Hogwarts: A History

Albus,

Ronald Weasley has stolen this book from the library. He claims this is to stop Hermione Granger from excessively quoting it. This didn't work, but whenever I ask for it back he stares into the fire places and grins maniacally. Is there anything you can do? He seems mentally disturbed.

Irma.


And these bits of Professor Trelawney's response to a surveything:

Croutons or bacon bits? The scattering of bacon bits enables us to see a clearer vision of the future.
Favorite type of ice cream: Ice cream… One of you will have a death tragically involving ice cream.
Favorite sesame street character: All of Sesame Street are doomed to die in a great plague.


And just think, if you don't read this you'll never know who Voldemort's favorite Sesame Street character is...
