I feel better about what I was talking about here yesterday due to my awesome friends. Still not keen on the fact that I'm too broke to do anything this weekend though.

I might be mistaken, but somehow, looking over my recent posts, it seems I haven't actually posted a link and description to my first Jeeves/Wooster post.  I posted it on AO3 on August 29.  Herewith, the info:

Fandom: Jeeves & Wooster
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3137
Characters/Pairing: Bertie Wooster/Reginald Jeeves
Genre: Humor, maybe Crack around the edges
Summary:Bertie makes a wager. And the word "balls" gets used a great deal.

The flat was dark and all was still. Even Jeeves, my man, would not be awake for another hour and a half at the earliest. As I moved about the silent sitting room, I thought I heard a small noise.
Thwick thwick thwick thwick
The young master stood, irresolute. What could possibly make such a strange noise? A tiny chorus of tap-dancing mice in teeny-tiny top hats?

To cope with the hideousness of the world, I started reading Jeeves/Wooster stories. I am hooked.

So, knocking out 'Jeeves And The Hardboiled Eggs' was a lot of fun, so I thought I'd start another story with the premise: Bertie is bisexual and is having a casual affair with a chorus girl. Hadn't thought much beyond that.

Then, the evil thing starts GROWING. What if Jeeves has taken a vow of celibacy? Maybe bunging Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers into it would be fun. What if Bertie discovers the theater is the perfect hiding in plain sight place for inverts?

AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING!

At present I have almost 30 pages of partial scenes, each one divide, and more needing to be written. I'm not going to post anything until most of it is done. I've ran into so many WIPs in this fandom I'm ready to deck somebody. It's harder to tell on LJ than A03 when something is finished or not.

Fic rec: There Are No Winners In War, by BaBaLooBlue. A fantastic "missing scenes" story about the trip back from House's father's funeral. Beautifully written and no woobieness in sight.

My life sucks. I shouldn't have gone to the dumb weight loss class last night. it started out good, I lost a pound, but then came the class itself. They are putting much too much emphasis on looks instead of health. there was a lot of talk about how everyone has some sort of purpose in life and I sure don't know what the fuck mine is. There was a lot of talk about "be there for your family and your job". Well, I am a financial burden to my family and I've failed at every job I've ever had.

Put together this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cake today (from the Washington Post). Followed the instructions except for sifting the flour and spices together -- just took it out of the oven and it smells delicious. :D

We must have an opossum in residence close by -- Layla treed a youngster both last night and this morning in the backyard, scaring the bejeebers out of the little guy both times.

Currently reading Jay McInerney's The Good Life, sequel to Brightness Falls and the middle book in his "New York trilogy" (I've noticed some people calling it his "Yuppie trilogy," heh). It's a good read, but omg these characters do not talk like normal people talk. Before this I read Neil Gaiman's American Gods. I had read it once, years and years ago, but I heard Gaiman had restored something like 12K words to a new edition. It was interesting to see how the book did or did not follow the first season of the TV show, and how a few scenes had been transferred to TV virtually unchanged. I enjoyed it a lot -- two thumbs up, would recommend.

Still have this damn cold, I went out briefly earlier today and it really wiped me out. I was coughing a lot so I took some cough medicine which helped.

Attempting home repair

Initially thought the toilet chain had come unhooked from the flapper: no prob

It came unhooked because the rubber hole on the flapper valve had worn through: boo!

Turned off water to toilet: success

Detached & extricated flapper valve (pointedly not thinking about all that gunk in there): success

Will go to store to see if they have flapper valves of the right size (will bring detached valve as reference): this afternoon

DID ALL WITHOUT CONSULTING DAD: so far so good
