The week of crazy allergies has arrived. Although the Maples are blooming late this year so there will probably be an extra week of badness. Joy.

It really is awful. I know it's bad but every year I remember just exactly how awful it is. At least it coincided with Spring Break so I won't have class next week.

I'll be over here on the couch clutching my allergy meds and wishing they made Claritin martinis.

Free time, I've had almost none. Between craziness at work and taking two graduate level courses in materials engineering in the evenings - good Lord, what have I done?!?!? - I have been running around like madwoman.

However, I did manage to add a couple blog entries today, one random and one food-related. And since I've been doing homework since 11 this morning, I'm calling it a day. I have one problem left. It's due Wednesday so I'm planning to finish the last one Monday night and then review the entire assignment Tuesday night before submitting it. The course is quite interesting but wow, it's kicking my ass. I wish I had more time and brain power to put toward it. Work fries my brain all on its own. If I can survive this week and next, then it should go back to at least manageable insanity for awhile.

Blog is here.

Since I'm done with work type stuff for the night, I'm going to pour a glass of boysenberry wine and poke at my fic.

This is my first attempt at crossposting to both DreamWidth and LJ. Was finally able to import all my stuff to DW. Well, not all. It couldn't snag all my icons so I'll have to do that myself.

I'm the same name over there - bigsciencybrain - if anyone wants to find me on DW.

I signed up for a ficathon with a minimum word count of 30,000. I'm not actually worried about that. It's Buffyverse, which I haven't played in for a bit so I should dust off the DVDs and have them in the background as I waste spend my time applying for jobs. See if it jogs anything loose or produces any bunnies.

The point of this post, however, isn't that particular ficathon. Rather that I've been pondering my fic in general and one fic in particular...

I Was A Ghost Before You Came

And the song that inspired the title is Ghost - Jes. I've linked to the album version but there are several lovely remixes that I prefer to the original. May I recommend the Deepsky Club Mix?

Thinky type things... )

Continuity Check: Landy doesn’t leave the backpack in the room with Vosen at the end of Ultimatum. Come on, there were more files she didn’t have time to fax, does anyone really think she’s going to leave them there?

I keep seeing news articles about the spy satellite that lost power. Most of them are along the lines of "Spy satellite falls out of orbit and may hit Earth".

Pray tell, what else could it hit?
