Just to blow my horn a little

I love to write. It's one of my earliest memories. I was also fortunate to have encouraging parents who support and encouraged me. While pro writing was okay (but the money mostly sucked), it wasn't fun. For fun, I write fanfic and some original stuff.

Today, I hit a milestone in AO3 - Works (1000). This doesn't count drabbles (there's a couple hundred of those floating around) or any of the plays (only a couple dozen). And for the most part, these are Man from UNCLE or Sapphire and Steel fics. There's some other stuff, of course, but the bulk is MFU. Not bad for someone who was told back in 1980 that she really had no talent for writing Man from UNCLE and that I should leave it to people who knew and understood the characters. Fie on you, unnamed zine editor.

It may not seem like much, but it made me happy.


Title: Three Gloomy Addams
Genre: The Addams Family

Prompt: Omg then YES! I'd like to go for Addams Fam this time, please :D

Carefully, Morticia hung the spider from the bare branch of the tree. It was so much easier now that all the needles had fallen off. The spider looked back at Morticia.

“Off you go now.” The spider raced away and Morticia smiled. The tree was coming together wonderfully. It was so gloomy and dismal, just perfect for this time of the year. The branches were trimmed with various ornaments of the season, ghosts, skulls, scythes, monsters and bats while the very top of the tree held a slightly-worn vulture. It was a treasured heirloom handed down from one Addams generation to the next. Once the spiders got busy, the tree would be covered in lovely webs. Nothing said Christmas to Morticia than spider webs.

A Time Lord in a Sunnydale Crypt

Just wondering

When you aren't alone, how long could you go without talking?

Do you like electronic candles?

If you were going to a costume party (or fancy dress, if you prefer) and money was no object, what/who would you dress up as?

How did it get to be Thursday alredy?

Boy, this week has just flown by. I suspect the mailing on Monday helped speed things along. This next week should be pretty busy, too, hopefully with letters and checks coming in (fingers crossed).

The saga of the truck seems to be over for the moment. Another $400 and they swear it's fixed. Sure it is...

Now if only someone would fix my ear. I've been taking all my meds just as prescribed and nothing. My ear is still plugged and I can't hear worth crap. I'm going to a different urgent care center tomorrow in the hopes that it won't take me another four hours to be seen. At least this one has more than one doctor on staff.

We have started delivering our baked goods this week and it's nice to get them on their way. They will be all distributed by the week's end. Now to attack the wrapping and attack is a good word. It's very hard to wrap with five cats and a 'helpful husband. He's trying so hard to help these days and seems to be making things twice as hard. Then he told me that he's off starting this afternoon until after the first of the year... so much for any quiet time for me.

And the parties are getting ready to start. We have one tomorrow night (chef and Irene), Saturday (Barb) and our annual party in mfu_canteen which you are all invited to, Sunday we are doing the wine wall at the theatre and will go out afterwards. Monday is free, Tuesday is our Christmas party. Wednesday we have a party at Jeff's and Thursday is one at Joan's. Friday is open at the moment, but we have a dinner party ourselves on Saturday, then we are out Christmas Eve. Sigh... all in one freaking week... I hope I last that long...

And I hope that you have managed to get through the week in good stead and will have a fun and happily busy weekend to look forward to.

Edited to add - last night, The Boy called and he's coming to see us on the 21st. That's Friday gone...


Thank you, Christina Marie

My card arrived and let's just say I was happy that I was leaning over the kitchen sink when I opened it. Bête Noir was fascinated by all the glitter.
