The one where I have no French fries

Seriously, they are the empress of carbs, and I long for them daily. (Fries.) I have no fries, I want to mention, I just WANT some. In case you thought to yourself at some point today, "I wonder if Laura has any fries?" the answer is NO. Truly my life is the hardest life.

In other news! Someone at Reddit linked to a Hoarders recap on HDJM, and we have hits going through the roof. Which is great! People are finding the site and then sticking around to see what's what. My girls should be showered with Likes and +1's and comments because they're funny and interesting. <3 HOORAY.

In other other news! I've started posting that Body Swap fic (right now I'm posting each chapter before dinner - only 2 up so far) but this weekend I'll most likely switch to my usual early morning posting. If you're interested in such things, here is my AO3 link for TRUST FALL, Sterek, NC-17 - eventually. 13 chapters, I'm still editing the last third, hence the daily posting and not the whole thing at once. And it's about 150K, so yeah. That's huge in one chunk. (I'm only posting fic there from this point on. It's just easier.)

Guys, how can we get science to make instant fries? Don't tell me about frozen fries, I want a specific restaurant to instantly know I have a craving and make them materialize in front of my face, steaming hot, salty, covered in cheese and bacon and jalapeños and *gross sobbing*

Here, have a poll!

Fries are:

awesome
38(26.2%)
the best
31(21.4%)
gross. I hate them, and also I hate kittens and LOVE
0(0.0%)
good with just salt and pepper
20(13.8%)
better with salt and pepper and a little garlic seasoning.
20(13.8%)
THE BEST WHEN THEY ARE LOADED WITH CHEESE AND BACONS AND JALAPEÑOS AND HAVE RANCH TO DIP THEM IN
18(12.4%)
something Laura obviously craves before her period.
18(12.4%)

You

can shut it, they're delicious.
18(21.7%)
should bring me some. Did I mention that I love you?
40(48.2%)
can have a bite, but only if you bring me some.
22(26.5%)
won't bring me any? WE'RE ON A BREAK. >:(
3(3.6%)


It's just...I love fries. ("Do you really love fries? Or are you just saying you love fries because you can see them?") I LOVE FRIES.

It's a good thing I just ate lunch or I would be eyeing the leftover sweet potato fries I'm saving for part of the mister's dinner.

I've started posting that Body Swap fic

I actually made dolphin noises. I may have frightened the cat.

I ate ALL of the fries and cheese and drank all of the wine last week while I was on holiday and now carbs and I have decided to see other people. I'm never leaving wine though, that would just be wrong.

And now I shall go read body swap fic and nibble on some seeds and not think about fries...

HOORAY! And I just posted Chpt. 3! <3

Oh man, all the fries and cheese and wine?! *sobs* And I didn't come with you on this majestic vacation because...? Ha. Oh, wait! I have cheeses and wine a'plenty! No fries, but I'll cut them out in solidarity with you, how's that?

No fries solidarity \o/ - Graze has some awesome snack boxes I've been taking advantage of in lieu of carbs, although I'm not entirely sure I'm supposed to snack on all the little boxes in one day...

And the fic is sooooo good! I ended up staying up til 2am reading, I can see this being a habit...when I'm capable of more than a flaily keysmash I'll tell you just how much I love it.

Also, just as I was hitting refresh on Tumblr, this popped up - ONE CAN RESIST FANDOM CANDY!! It's not really fandom candy of course but it's like they've been surfing the TW tags *g*.

I shall be ever more resolute in the avoidance of all things fries related in order to pay them a visit while I'm there next week.

I am SO FREAKING GLAD that you're enjoying it! I've never written body swap before, so that's a lot of fun. <3

OMG DYLAN'S CANDY STORE. Hahahaha, that's awesome.

(Although, if you make a point to walk everywhere in NYC, I bet you could add SOME fries into your diet? ...I'm not helping, am I?)

I LOVE bodyswap, it's an absolute cast iron go to for me. I'm saving chapters now, just so I can have all of the words with my cuppa and or wine. So far I have have 3 and 4. I can't see myself holding out much past 5 though...

Walking will definitely be a theme. As will fries and pizza, and of course accidental fandom candy.

<3 I hope you enjoy it! (5 went up a few hours ago, and I'm switching to my much preferred morning post time, so 6 will come soon, too.)

FRIES. HEY GUESS WHAT I HAD FOR DINNER? And now I'm having wine, because I'm an adult and can eat what I want. (ha)

AND YOUR ICON, MADAM. Jeez, DoB on drums is my kryptonite.

Trying again because I suck at html after wine...

I know what I'll be doing in the morning...

I resisted the fries and had chicken and veg, but there was a very nice Tempranillo.

And Dylan on drums, because there can never be enough -

NOW I HAVE IT ALL FOR MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

You've seen the twirly drumstick gifs too right? Pure porn.

I have a HUGE thing about his hands, about how they're (along with his shoulders) way too big for his body and how he kind of maybe has no idea what it actually does to us.

Here have one more -

I have trained my 2.5 year old son to say " Love lamp!" . . . it's adorable.

He loves fries as well.

HAHA, your son is clearly amazing and destined for greatness.

Ahhhh, I've been craving potatoes the past few days! Particularly potatoes with obscene amounts of melted cheese, please!

Sweet about the increased traffic! :) I rec'd the site on my twitter the other day because 95% of my feed watches the shows you recap. Unfortunately, my twitter influence is....not mighty.

POTATOES. I mean, come on. THEY ARE SO DAMN GOOD. <3

Aww, thank you for reccing us! And hey - who cares how mighty or small, the act in and of itself means SO MUCH to me, truly. *hugs you tight*

OMG I FUCKING LOVE FRIES!!! You're awesome for loving fries just as much. XD Try sprinkling lemon or lime over a batch. Let me know what you think!

I crave fries, cheeseburgers and milkshakes made with a specific brand of chocolate ice cream. In other words, I become a 1950's teenybopper. Or Jimmy Buffet.

Is it bad to ply the 4 year old with french fries when I have a lot of rehearsals? Please say no, because otherwise I AM A TERRIBLE MOTHER.

I have also recently realized I only like potatoes in fried forms. Otherwise they are just eh...carbs with a side of joint pain, no thanks!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
