Let's Upgrade It To Duck Poo Now...  
I'm starting to feel a little better today. No real choice but to go in last night, although I started to get better as the night wore on. And I do mean wore. There's nothing worse when you're sick than to be around a bunch of unhappy people. *sigh*

But there is good news. I slept the entire night last night. *victory arms* Yes, I had to take my Valerian to do it, but hey. At least I stayed down after taking it. We also had our first walk of the season last night since the weather was kinda cool. Let's hear it for weight loss. I found my copy of The Daily Planet Guide To Metropolis: City of Tomorrow. It's not Movieverse, but it is comics canon and is actually incredibly helpful. For example, did you know that the average temperature in Metropolis in January is between 26 to 38 degrees? Well, now you do! This book has everything, even the boroughs of New Troy. I've stated before that the Lane-White family was living in Bakerline, but now I can tell you that they're living in the Lafayette area of Bakerline. How's that for cool?

And we're nearly done with Intimidation. It will likely be just a oneshot instead of being a 12days_of_cloisentry because it became very Twins-centric. That and we went more than a thousand words over the limit. *wince* Currently it's sitting at 7,140 words and fourteen pages with one scene to go.  

Here's your spoiler:

They turned up in the Carmichael’s yard to find Wade underneath a car, as usual. This time it was a beat-up Oldsmobile whose primary color was Bondo. “Hi,” Kala called out cheerfully. “Anybody answer to the name of Carmichael ‘round here?”
Wade slid out from beneath the car and grinned up at her. He had some sympathy for his little brother – although Kala was presently just a skinny kid in jean shorts and a tank top, he’d seen her mom, and he had the feeling Kala would grow up to be a heartbreaker. “Well, if it isn’t our favorite two-times-the-trouble-makers. Are you both back to stir up more mischief in our sleepy little town?”
“Nah, we’re just walking our dog,” Kala said. “And our lizard.”
My lizard,” Jason said proprietarily, rubbing Gazeera’s cheek. The iguana just blinked sleepily.
“Whatever,” Kala sighed. “Anyway, we just wanted to drop by and say hello. How’s everything been?”

We're also now 1,413 words and three pages into Connection. And we get a glimpse into just how normal this marriage is. There's a time in every marriage when you finally start to set boundaries and start to realize that you share everything. Even if you spent the early potion of their lives caring for them on your own. Welcome to the first real stumbling block in the Lane-Kent marriage. I'm actually enjoying this one, especially since it's been planned for quite some time now.  elliania, could I request a bit of your magic for this one as well? 

Well, off to spend a perfectly nice rainy afternoon with a sick belly at work. Blech.

*big hugs* for the sickly twin. I hope your day doesn't get all sucky so you have to downgrade to cow poo... or whatever's worse. :/

*more hugs*

*just sighes and sinks into the hug* I'm so tired, Ab. And we lost two more employees this week. How the heck are we going to survive Christmas?

Two more employees? Good Lord...

Well, you've got lots of time before Christmas comes around. Worry about Halloween and Thanksgiving before you get to December.

And another quit last night. *sighes, runs hands through hair*

Out walking the dog and the lizard! That must be some sight. *grins* Wow, I'm picturing them as teenagers, and I'm getting all misty! Can't wait for this one. Thanks for teaser.

Trust me, it's hard to get used to. I love these oneshots because it gives all of you a chance to see them in the years that we won't be showing between LS and </i>Heirs</i>. I love these two. *hugs Kal and Jason*

I'm glad you're feeling a bit better!
Lois: Lois Bad Daykalalanekent on October 3rd, 2007 01:39 pm (UTC)
Getting there. I just think the stress of the job lately has been why I just keep getting sick. I'll just be glad when the remodel at the store gets done...
Syd Gill: A: Lois -Oh Snapsydgill on October 2nd, 2007 06:29 pm (UTC)
So you're a little better now? Did you do the socks?? Can't wait to read the one shot and your 12 days fic!!!
Lois: Kal-El Grinkalalanekent on October 3rd, 2007 01:41 pm (UTC)
I'm starting to feel better. Probably take the rest of the week to get back to 100%, but hey. And you'll get to see them by the weekend, Tage. *hugs*
Syd Gill: D: Chuck - internet is for pornsydgill on October 3rd, 2007 05:04 pm (UTC)
Yay for getting better and yay for sharing the fictional love this weekend. Did you see, I'm starting to catch up on LS??? If I didn't have such a wacky night last night *eyes Abby and Anissa* then maybe I would have read a few more chapters!!
Lois: Lois Lovekalalanekent on October 3rd, 2007 05:40 pm (UTC)
I noticed! And I think we only got about 500 words in last night. *shrugs* That's okay; it just means that she and I need to amp it up for the next three days. I'm so glad you're back, love! Keep telling me what you think! *hugs*
Syd Gill: A: Hug attacksydgill on October 7th, 2007 12:27 am (UTC)
I got caught! WOOOO!!! It was awesome...but sad when I realized I have no more chapters to read. I'm gonna go read your other fics though...so I'm not complaining!!

*hugs Lois back*

Sorry to here you've been sick, and hope that it passes quickly now that you're back on your feet. As for the sneaky peak you had me grinning ear to ear with this. I love those two kids, so much fun, and JAson walking is Lizard, haha...

Okay I'm ready for what ever you two have up your sleeve
Lois: Jason's Herokalalanekent on October 3rd, 2007 01:42 pm (UTC)
I'm getting better, though. Just got to shake the last of it off. And I thought you'd like this little tale. And I chose to show the 'walking the lizard' just for you!
ellalou73 on October 4th, 2007 12:04 am (UTC)
I feel honored...hehe..Actually My friend had an illegal pet in College, an Iguana, though this one was Norma Jean. No one, to my knowledge, ever knew Norma Jean was around, so it was kind of cool. Anyway glad to hear your feeling better and as I said I'm ready to read this little tale of yours.

A marriage, huh? Sure! Just tell me more about what you want. ;)
Lois: Lois Lost In Thoughtkalalanekent on October 3rd, 2007 01:35 pm (UTC)
This one is going to be different than the other ones we've done. I want to have Lois on one side alone. The angry expression from STM (after he turns back time and she's yelling at him should work) and on the opposite side, Kal-El and the twins. Probably want to use one of the annoyed caps from the DC of him when he's dealing with Lex and the Zod Squad. It's pretty much like they're glaring at each other across the banner.

I'd send the pics myself now, but I'm at Anissa's Mom's with no access to my galleries at home. I'll look, though.

OK, now I'm really curious!! Take your time to send the pics! :)
Lois: Clark and Loiskalalanekent on October 3rd, 2007 02:59 pm (UTC)
I'll send you the beginning. We have to add in the fact that she's been at work for 32 hours following a story before she walks in the door.

Glad to see you're feeling better!!

And I'm gonna have to get that book. Sounds muy interesting. I just got my visual guide to SR. Helps alot.

{It will likely be just a oneshot instead of being a 12days_of_cloisentry because it became very Twins-centric. That and we went more than a thousand words over the limit. *wince*} LOL You know what, that's not such a bad thing.

What in the world is Bondo?

{“Hi,” Kala called out cheerfully. “Anybody answer to the name of Carmichael ‘round here?”} I'm guessing that's teenage Kala? Good to see Wade's still around.

{although Kala was presently just a skinny kid in jean shorts and a tank top} Ok, pre-teen Kala.

{Are you both back to stir up more mischief} Oh dear... What did they do the first time?!


{There's a time in every marriage when you finally start to set boundaries and start to realize that you share everything. Even if you spent the early potion of their lives caring for them on your own.} *covers eyes*
Actually that makes a good summary...
Lois: Lois Superman LOLkalalanekent on October 3rd, 2007 01:57 pm (UTC)
Slowly making my way back to well. Wish I had a short-cut.

About the book, it's invaluable. It's worth the cost just for the maps of Metropolis and the temps and history. The history listed is something someone spent quite some time planning. You can really see that. Heck, it even explains the television and radio stations, as well as the internet options. *LOL* It's great.

Bondo is http://www.bondo-online.com/default.asp

And yeah, in Intimidation, Kala and Jason are fourteen. And they're very well known in town, even if they only visit. They've been well-known since their first visit, though. And Wade's not going anywhere, unless his wife catching him staring at Kent's Woman again. *LOL*

And you know he takes that thing everywhere. Gazeera's like the Purse from Hell. *LOL* Except the first visit to Kansas. Richard, Perry, and Loueen are watching the dinosaur and the weasel until they get back.

Yeah, first fights are never good. At least it took a while for this to come about. Don't worry; you know it's only for a little while.

God, I wish I could. Really. I'd love for Singer to be able to use any of this, but I'm worried about what Warner would do with it. If they even thought it worthwhile. Anyone know Bryan's number? ;)
