Master Fic List

My fic is scattered over several pages, none of them having the complete list, and some having stories I am very embarrassed about, but I am not going to pull down for the sake of completeness. So, I have put together a list of links to things that may be quasi-readable. I can't believe that I'm am responsible for some of these affronts to man and God.

Join me in the Special Hell - Fic Recs

I finally decided to put together a fic recs list. It's very slow going. I have more than a decade of reading accumulated in various folders and favorites so I'm adding as I read and reread. So far it's mostly SPN as that is my current obsession (though I haven't gotten anywhere near finished with it yet), but when I get the chance I'll start putting in the rest of the many, many fandoms.

I don't actually have any squicks anymore so I generally totally forget that certain things offend other people. This has gotten me into trouble before with some of my own stories (AKA What is Your Pleasure, Sir?). I mean, who doesn't like a good incest/non-con/torture/misuse of household objects story? Thus, I haven't even bothered to try and put warnings on these. del.icio.us only gives so many characters and it's hard enough getting the descriptions to fit. I advise paying attention to the warnings at the top of the actual stories very carefully.

Thus, here we are: Carole's Fic Rec Page of Doom

Celebrity spotting

Mark Sheppard or an incredibly close look alike is totally in my terminal right now.  **Okay, he just spoke.  It is totally him.**

You know that voice that tells you to 'just walk, it isn't THAT far'?

That voice LIES.

Finally got back to my hotel.  I could change and go out again because I haven't eaten dinner, but now that I've stopped moving, I don't think I can start again.

In other news, I went to the zoo!

The week is finally over

The week is finally over.  Thursday night before last my grandmother suffered a massive stroke.  My aunt flew into the city Saturday morning and we drove down together.  The group of us spent the week at her bedside or funeral planning.  She finally passed away on Thursday morning and we had the funeral today.  I am really tired and not just from the situation. I gave up the bed to my aunt and slept on the blow up mattress.

On a happier note, my mother and I are going to be flying out tomorrow and should be in Amsterdam by Wednesday morning.  This is the first time my mother has been in the Netherlands since her family moved to Canada all those decades ago and she has wanted to do this for a long time.  Hopefully it won't rain the whole time, but we are prepared if it does.

Paper submission complete

So, I forgot I had a six hour TA today until late yesterday (and needed to prep since I haven't done any of this stuff in a few years) and had a conference paper that needed to be in for 5 PM.  Wasn't sure I was going to get it done, since I wanted comments from my supervisor first (since his name is on it) and pictures take me forever to do, but it is in.  Very relieved and managed with time to spare.

Now I just have to stick around to pick up the last group of labs to grade.  I'd say that I'm planning to mark them tonight to get them out of the way, but that would be a terrible, terrible lie.

Aliens + Gay Marines + Female Badasses = Relevant to our interests

For the Ottawa locals, you may have heard me talk about the epic musical some friends are putting on in June for Fringe. This is kind of short notice as I was planning to post this Friday, but had the cold of death and was curled up in bed so I didn't get around to it. They're looking for people and I figured that scifi geeks would be interested. Feel free to forward the information on. They aren't just looking for actors and singers, so don't feel shy (plus I will personally vouch for the awesomeness of the people involved).  Or if you don't want to get involved, just keep its existence in the back of your mind for Fringe this year.

Alien Predator: The Musical!
In space, no one can here you sing!

Auditions

Go Fly A Kite Productions is looking actors and actress for its production of Alien Predator: The Musical to be performed at the Ottawa Fringe Festival in June. The musical is parody of the Predator and Aliens franchises.

Auditions will be held February 15 and 16th in the evenings at Hawthorne United Church, 2244 Russell Rd. Those auditioning will be expected to sing something of their choosing and to perform a scene in the script.

We are also looking for a director, choreographer, musicians and anyone interested in helping out. If that’s you, please contact bjshorton at gmail dot com.

Bwahahaha!

For those of you who missed it I have been having a poster war on campus. I have followed up once again with posters (mine is an evil laugh) and online.

This morning's update: Someone put up Storyteller posters in the UniCentre. I am not the only one supporting Richard Brook.

These people may get an invite from me this week for coffee and, possibly, brunch on Sunday.

Next set of posters up

in response to a declaration of war. Curious to see the response now that I've tracked down the relevant blogs.

Come find me, fellow Sherlock fans.
