A gracious good morning to you all! I am up bright and early, or at least as close to bright and early as I am apt to get up, and I thought I'd start the week by making my brain work. Remarkable things, brains; if you're willing to actually force them to think linearly, to make them create sentences that have proper punctuation and a real beginning, middle, and end, why then they're apt to get more flexible, and are much more apt to work better, than if you stare at a game of solitaire all day.And that's why I'm posting at this unusual point in the day for me.
Come on brain; you've got a lot of work to do, so let's do it!
First (but not in any particular order), I made a stew this weekend which was the first stew I've made without using a recipe. Well, to be fair, the day before I put it together, I browsed through some various stew recipes, from gumbo and beef bourguinon to cassoulet, just to get a better handle on the process, but I didn't crack a book the day I made it. And it turned out very tasty. I am pleased.
Next, I've got two fics started; one is an IOU for fandom_stocking and one was based on a prompt for a fic contest. The deadline for that contest is tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern time, so I can pretty much forecast that the story won't be entered into the contest, because I am glacially slow, but the prompt did what it was supposed to do; it prompted me. All of this activity is, I hope, helping my brain (remember my flaccid brain what I am attempting to exercise? Yeah, that brain) kick into Chapter 25 of H&M.
Speaking of which, I have begun to think that I need a new name for that story. The name no longer applies. I must think on that.
In the TMI information (which is why I'll keep it vague); I need to contact my internist again and ask her to really look into the sore spots that have been cropping up in my mouth more and more consistently. My poor mouth had just recovered from one sore spot when three more spots decided to go bad. I don't think this can be tied to some of the things we talked about earlier, and I do think it has to do with stress (thanks, a_phoenixdragon , for confirming my suspicions on that one), so I doubt dealing with the problem will be a simple one-silver-bullet situation, but I do need the doctor not to shrug her shoulders and say it could be anything. Let's try to narrow that down, shall we? I'd really like to be able to eat and speak without pain.
I have an extremely busy week coming up, but I hope to post a little more regularly. (Yeah, yeah, I know. The same old song and dance from kaffyr .)
Oh yes, I'm also looking forward to Age of Ultron. Very, very much.
And that, I think, is the end of this extraordinarily boring post. If I can think of other amusing things, I shall endeavor to post them a little later in the day. I hope you all have excellent Mondays, and excellent weeks!
