Posting early today because I have stuff tonight, and skipping ahead in line to [personal profile] shetiger because I know that rage that is, "WHERE ARE MY AWESOME LADIES, [INTERNET PLATFORM OF YOUR CHOICE]???"

So I will talk about the Mills sisters in Sleepy Hollow.

Things watched tonight with [personal profile] greenygal:

* Disney's "Robin Hood"
* Arrow 1x01
* Scooby Doo: Mystery Inc. 1x01
* Sleepy Hollow 1x01
* Justice League Unlimited: Double Date (possibly Best Episode Ever)
* A thing where nerd dudes despaired over the terribleness of the 1997 Justice League movie. 'Fess up, who's seen it? (The movie/unaired pilot, not the thing with dudes making fun of it.)

Also I realized I have four more icon spaces on DW. Should I move old ones over or find new ones? I don't even know where you find icons anymore. Tragedy.

So, at some point during the first season of Elementary, I decided that it would be awesome if Gregson had met BBC's Greg Lestrade while he was working with Scotland Yard and they hooked up. And then sort of called each other to talk over cases when there was really no one else to talk to, and when Elementary-Sherlock moved to New York, BBC-Lestrade called Elementary-Gregson and was like, hey, our buddy's coming your way. Maybe you can throw some cases his way, yeah?

I kind of got jossed by the awesomeness that is Cheryl Gregson, and to a lesser extent (because meh) by the Elementary-Lestrade from 2x01. But I might still write it as an AU. Or something.

Mmmph. Still haven't replied to things. I blame the lure of tumblr. I'm staring to find Benedict Cumberbatch attractive, which I hadn't really before. Dammit, interwebs!

In other news, the interview went well, but I may have to meet with two other people. Which is probably a good sign, but will be interview #4, so I'm getting a little antsy.

I will answer things as soon as I have a working draft of that thing I'm supposed to be doing. SIGH.

I sort of haven't logged into Twitter in about two years and it seems that my account was hacked. About 20 minutes ago, my account started posting some messages in Russian and since my Russian is limited to "glasnost" and "dosvedanya", clearly something happened. I also seem to be following 802 accounts, which is not right. I will be unfollowing quite a few of them in the next few days. If I accidentally unfollow you, it's probably not intentional!

Maybe this is a clue I should be paying attention to Twitter. The chances of my actually tweeting anything are probably slim but I'm (dum dum dum!) smittywing. Thanks to those who sent me a heads-up!

Thank you to everyone who responded to last night's post! I very much appreciate all the links and personal experiences and virtual hugs. I spent a lot of today reading them and thinking, and also catching up on sleep and reading a book just because I wanted to.

I have a work project I need to put some hours into tomorrow and a big interview on Thursday to prepare for so it might be a couple days before I can answer directly but I am not freaking out and I know I can do it on Thursday and it will be fine. So, yeah. It's a start anyway.

In the last couple of months, two of my closest friends have told me that I am too hard on myself. And not in the joking, casual way, but in that, "If this was How I Met Your Mother, this would be an intervention" kind of way. [personal profile] reccea threatened me with a daily affirmation calendar. ;)

It's true that have always been kind of hard on myself and more so lately because I did something wrong and am kind of disappointed in myself. I know for a fact that a bunch of you out there are just as rough on yourselves as I am on me...(I have seen your journals!) So, how do you cut yourself some slack? I need better coping mechanisms.

Day Five and already behind! But that's okay, because I'll have some time tomorrow to catch up on comments.

Thanks to everyone who is following me on tumblr! I shall follow you back and we can all reblog gif sets together. Probably tomorrow because I am already tired.

I am so not interesting tonight but I had a great weekend of dogs and football and nephew, and now I plan to stay in my house for 3 days straight because OMG, what is this weather? (I know those of you from Minnesota and Wisconsin and the like are laughing at me but I am a delicate flower and am very pathetic wrapped up in hoodies and sweaters and blankets.)

Um, I know! Who remembers bitty fic? I...need to go look up the rules. Hold on.

Okay, I'm back! Last bitty fic was almost 2 years ago? Really? Eugh.

The rules of bitty fic, if you haven't seen them before, is that you give me a prompt of a character or pairing and a word, event, episode, etc., and I write a fic in 10 words, haiku, or limerick. It's kind of lame, admittedly, but you've got a far better chance of getting an answer than you would if we go for the regular drabble prompts, which tend to result in me going, "Oh, this would make a GREAT 20K word fic..." and never getting done. :) Regarding fandoms - for bitty fics, if I know the names of the characters, I can probably cough something up. So fly free.
