Don't you love it when you get to that point in your fic that requires a bit of research? Read: obsessively searching out photos and info and adding endless links to notes...meanwhile, fighting off other ideas. Because I'm not at that place anymore where I can write two or more fics at once. Damn it. ;D

Also, I think I'm killing the keyboard on my tiny laptop. It's probably happening because I hit my keys like I have a personal, raging hatred for them. My little fingertips get all bruised and achy at the end of the night.

One more thing before I go to bed: KitKats are the devil. I knew we wouldn't get any kids, but I made poor Mr. Roxy buy them anyway. He knew I was lying when I swore I was *absolutely* certain kids were coming this year, really, 'cause I got this feeling. Yeah, I got this feelin' I'll be rolling around in a pile of empty KitKat wrappers. Say, have I told you I'm lactose-intolerant? And KitKats be wrapped in milk-chocolate? Guess who's pretending they're not having an *a-hem* reaction to it? *beams* Lucky ya'll aren't here with me.

It was a good Halloween, even though we had no kiddies and I'm stuck with a crap-ton of deadly candies. I had the TNT on all day, and refused to change the channel, even with the earth-shattering groans of my beloved in the background. You'd think after 14 years, he'd be even tiny bit of a fan. :D

Okay--goodnight, my friends. I'm going straight to bed, too. Unless I get distracted by something before I shuffle off to sleepy-bye land. Like more Red Hood goodness.

He probably is a fan and just doesn't want to admit it :D

Enjoy your Kitkats :))

ps, I'm at that stage where I'm procrastinating writing by editing what I've already written, and procrastinating editing by playing endless games of online backgammon :S

That's just what I'm going to tell him next time he complains!

Your process is my process! :D

Oooo. Kitkats are so good. But ouch. Hope you're not feeling too crappy after all those. Your talk of eating all the candy totally reminded me of Dean with all the candy wrappers in the car ;)

LOL! I felt like it last night, too! I'm paying the price...but I don't care, lol!

I can relate to the love of KitKats. Also Snickers, Millky Ways, Butterfingers, and peanut butter cups. Sorry for your lactose thing, though. Oh dear. We too bought way too much candy. Now I need to find a way to get rid of it before it ends up you-know-where (if I could find that gif of Dean eating himself sick on Halloween candy in the front seat of the Impala, I would insert it here!)

Heeeee! Omg, all my fav candies! I sent all the leftovers to work with Mr. R--I knew if I left them home, I'd murder myself with 'em!

Oh, Miss Rose - you are a joy. :D

You should get a wireless or wired keyboard and just plug that into your lappie. I used to do that when i borrowed Cat's laptop. I hate the fucking keyboards on those things, so useless.

Homg, you dork. Stop eating KitKats!!

*pets you*

Good luck with the research. It's always so damn distracting.

Dude...I killed my comment. Anyhoo, you reminded me about the wireless keyboard and I'll try that out! Also, KitKats be kicking my ass, so no more, lol! It was good while it lasted though...so much mutual love until this messy and cruel break-up....

Good luck! They're awesome. Wireless mice, too - i hate the 'touchpad' mouse thing on the laptop.

This was my first Halloween in a "real" house, and we got some kiddos. Not too many, and BL and I were wondering how much longer Trick or Treating is even going to be a thing--of course it's so different, so much more sterilized and less fun than when we were kids. Parents were driving up and letting their kids out of the car. Granted it snowed Tuesday, so it was a bit chilly, but still. How is THAT the real Halloween experience?

Aww, sorry about the lactose problem... BL can't have any dairy at all; even a drop would make her sick, so I bought her some gummy bears so she could feel like it was Halloween. :-) And for me, it's not lactose, but sugar, and I knew I was going to pay for it, but ate a couple of pieces of candy anyway... and WOW, forgive me for NOT being euphemistic, but THE STINKY FARTS. :-\ And all the time spent in the bathroom! And the headache! And I still feel gross today!

....and I'd do it again. :-D

Yeah, it's sad that parent's paranoia is killing off childhood's most special day--when we could have all the candy we wanted and no one said no...*cries for the good old days*

STINKY FARTS!! I KNOOOOOOOW, with the feeling gross, yes. And hell yeah, I'd do it again--I'm such a masochist, lol!!!

On my previous laptop I killed the down arrow key. This time it's the up arrow key. I just need to plug in a mouse, I reckon.

I couldn't even talk myself into believing in TorTers this year. Plus we've given up chocolate except for Fair Trade and slavery-free brands, and none of those are milk chocolate. Nor are they inexpensive enough to hand out to random children, or for that matter to have much ourselves, very often.

What I'm walking around trying to say is, Die-a-beet-us sucks, we get no kids on Halloween, ever, so my restraint is both epic and legendary (Just 'cause peeps haven't heard about it doesn't mean it's not legendary. Someday they will!)

Stop researching, please ma'am, and continue with your story.

This summer when I was pounding away at Prodigal, scenes and dialogue from What Was Made/Found kept teasing me. Now? When I'm not actively writing anything? ...nada. Ain't writing a dream?

You is so legen....wait for it...dary!!! (sorry! :D )

Writing is a whirlwind of aggravation, anger, anxiety, and tears. I love it, damn it.

Alert! Alert! Kit Kats now come in dark chocolate and they"re even more delicious!!! I should know. I ate about 300 of them this week. When I wake up from the sugar coma it'll be a brand new week.
