Wednesday Random

For whatever reason, I scheduled a million (three) appointments with various doctors yesterday and felt like a prize-winning pig by the end of it. And while I don't excel in many things, one thing I am SUPER GREAT at is being healthy, evidently. Like, two doctors came in with mine to marvel at my labs and my EKG. I'm apparently textbook healthy, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

It was probably strange for me to thank my OB/GYN for the super gentle Pap-Smear, huh? But guys, I haaaaaaate those more than anything else, and I barely noticed this time. There are some of you nodding your head because you get it. That's a big deal.

Did you know that biologically speaking, you aren't attracted to people who have a similar smell as you, which is nature's way of preventing families "mingling" too closely? I believe this is why I want to burn my house down when my son comes in from riding his bike, or I venture too close to his room. SCIENCE WANTS ME TO KICK HIM TO THE CURB. I mean, nurture him and allow him to spread his wings and fly. Ahem.

This weekend I made bacon-onion jam and let me tell you something: that business is the freaking business right there. Also, it's surprisingly not fattening. I mean, it's a bunch of onions cooked down for hours (in bacon fat, true) with some salt and balsamic vinegar to finish it out. And a few pieces of bacon. BUT STILL. 10 giant onions, 5 pieces of bacon. Not too shabby. For my dinner last night I made crostinis with a heaping spoonful of the jam and a disc of goat cheese on top, slapped under the broiler, and then shoved into my mouth. I was a happy girl.

This is the last time I'll mention that fic [Kindred Spirits] that I wrote, because it has run its course, it seems. The people who would have found it interesting have done so, have read it, and have moved on. It didn't pique people's interest like I thought it would, and I'm telling myself to reach zen about it. In comparison to other fandoms I've written for, it's done very well. So. Get over it, me. OM. /lotus position

Time for me to roast some Brussels sprouts for my lunch, nom nom!!

So I take it close to 300 comments is only low for TW/Sterek? ;-) Why must I always be writing in the small fandoms? Sigh.

Mmm, bacon.

Well, half of those are my replies. AND YEAH. TW/STEREK IS RIDICULOUS. Some fics have SEVEN THOUSAND + Kudos. It's insane! But you bring up a good point. I need to shut my mouth and be happy with what I have. (I have written niche fics for years in small fandoms. I got spoiled.)

BACON. I mean, it's just so GOOD.

Oh no, you don't need to shut your mouth. How would you eat the bacon then? ;-) I'm just shocked at the number of comments stories get in that fandom/pairing. Crazy!

Hahahaha! EXCELLENT POINT.

Oh my goodness, the first time I saw one of the popular fics in TW (DILF, and it's an adorable AU) had one hundred and something thousand hits and nine thousand kudos, my mind was blown.

The good thing about a huge fandom is that the fic well is almost bottomless. There are so many great writers in the TW fandom.

If only I was at all interested in the show/pairing. I really want to be, but...eh.

TOTALLY get it. I mean, I know there are amazing writers who I love in other fandoms (SGA, SPN to name a few) but I just couldn't care less about the pairing.

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.
