Updates and Random Observations  
So, as I've been in and out a lot the last few days, I feel the need to inform the general public that:

~ I'm currently looking at my userpics with 192 of my 197 full and have decided that I need more icon space... What, why are you looking at me like that? Stop laughing! I'm serious! :P

~ Had several moments this week when I realized just how grateful for my friends here on LJ for all of their love and support I am. I don't tell you guys often enough, but there are many, many days that the knowledge of you out there and the fact that I'm so loved gets me through the day. Without seeing any of your faces daily, I know that there are people out there rooting for me. And I can never tell you just how much that means.

~ Why in the hell hasn't Willie and Phil been released on DVD, dammit? One of Margot's best films and no one has a damn copy. :P There's no price I wouldn't pay for a DVD of this guy.

~ I am currently listening to The Fray's Never Says Never, Pink's Sober, Uh Huh Her's Dreamer, and Bethany Joy Lenz's Halo in heavy rotation for the current chapter. I'm also rather guiltily listening to If You Seek Amy for my own enjoyment. Sick, sad, and absolutely true.

~ The current chapter started out at over 9,100 words long before we even got the last three scenes on. That said, we were still not going to make it to the beta date in time. Soooo, the good news? We're going to halve the thing and sent this week's chapter off to the betas tonight. You guys will get a chapter this weekend, a chapter next weekend, and a chapter the week after. Yes, the Muse is on the rampage.

~ We will be making a trip to Orlando this weekend of bath bombs. Lush bath bombs. Why, you ask? Didn't I just load up when I met the Amazing Ms. Kidder a little over a month ago? Yes, yes, I did. But, dammit, I work high-end retail with the best customers in the world (note the extremity and sharpness of my snark. You too can have this after three years in the Land of the Rich and Brainless); I need some way to treat myself. And they're discontinuing my favorite bomb, Haaganbath. *pouts* Expect to see us on Saturday, glitter_my_glam ! Warn Karis! *snuggles*

~ Day five of my six-day week is tomorrow. On which I am working outside of Hamon for the fourth days of those six (yes, I only have TWO days out of my week in my own department!)  And if one more idiot decides that it's no big deal to let their toddler run through the Window Treatments room and throw around product all over the floor and tear down $125 silk panels while they shop three rooms up, Anissa is going to have to bail me out. Seriously. Someone remind me why I don't just chuck it all and take a bed-in-a-bag to these damn people? *kicks her idiot customers*

~ I would like to kick a couple of members of PS3 for not only making us wait for more of our Clois, but for making us watch repeats of the Look-At-Me-Try-To-Be-A-Hero Epic!Lana!FAIL that was 'Power'. Excuse me, but are the pro-Lois members of the team trying to set up a 'Lois: Being A Superhero, You're Doing It Right' comparison? ... Hmmm, nevermind that I said anything. Carry on. *evil grin* Still sucks that we have to wait two weeks for more, though. 

~ I have learned through experience earlier this week that Lois and Chloe fans can only agree on two things: we just can't play well together and that we all think that PS3 hasn't been kind to Chlo this year. With the exception of her placement as Watchtower, AKA Oracle. It's actually Barbara Gordon's spot, but isn't Ollie our Bruce these days? And do you see me complaining? Not. At. All. All I complain about is the treatment of the character's main storyline. Oh, IC Chloe, how I miss you! It was so lovely to see you at the end of Hex. I hate to think that this will be the last of you that we see.

~ There's discussion of work starting up on the followup to In Another Lifetime at some point in the next few months. It really just depends on what the next challenge is at 12days_of_clois . Not only that, but we still have to do the final installment of So Close.  Not to mention the fact that we really need to work on something for the Girls over at lanalois4ever.  That's what we get for having such huge projects. Since the necessary angst is going on over in Heirs, we really plan to have a few more happy things floating around. Seriously.

~Noticing that this list is getting very long. Shutting up now. ;)


ETA: ~ I also just realized that it's a bad idea to post when you're tired. Lo, please, spell-check is your friend. *headdesk*

Damn right. Just remember that, whenever you're going through a rough patch, there's a small, high and slightly squeaky but very determined voice in central Holland cheering you on. *wink*

Remind me what I ever did to deserve you? <3 <3 <3

Just being you is more than enough, hon!

*blush* I don't hear that that much. Consider me feeling EXTRA loved. *grin*

*hugs you tight* You can get through this week, hon, I know you can! Just breathe... And I would never begrudge you your bath bombs. Wish I'd had those myself back when I worked in retail. :p

*snuggles* ILU, too, bb. And , as you see, if I don't die at work tonight, I will have made it. It also turns out that that weekend turned into a three-day weekend. And I still have a decent amount of money to take down to Orlando and not feel guilty about it.

How's your week been and do you think they're going to murder us for Saturday's chapter?

Good luck with work tonight, hon. *huggles*

My week's been surprisingly fast, since B took Monday and Tuesday off work for his birthday. :p I've been crocheting like crazy, and actually writing fic! XD

I was just about to beta your chapter, so I guess we'll see! :p

Willie and Phil
Hello, This is Charles.
I tried looking all over the internet for the dvd, and yes unfortunately it does not exist :(
It does exist in vhs format. I assume you have that already? If not, It can be found on Amazon.com. I will continue to keep an eye out for it. If I find it, I'll certainly let you know. I hope they print it soon :)

P.S. This is what I do, I Find stuff for folk :)

Re: Willie and Phil
Ohhh, thank for looking, Charles! januaried and I have been looking for quite some time now with no luck, either. I actually have a copy of it on my DVR (it was on AMC last year around this time and it's the only time in fifteen years I've seen it play), but no way to make a copy so Laurel can see it and cap it. The VHSes wear out too quickly and proper caps can never be made from it. :(

We'll just keep our eyes out for it. We're seriously hoping that that and The Reincarnation of Peter Proud become available at some point.

Many hugs for looking for us!

*hugs*

I am glad that you are also working on some fun stuff. Coming from someone who is surrounded with families in some sort of crisis or another, fun stuff is good.

I feel so guilty that I'm putting the characters through a rough patch right now because I know that you really don't want to read that part. *hugs* I'm planning to let you know when the worst of it is over. And the next sets of oneshots will be happy, I promise. Some fluff is in order.

*extra hugs*

Wow, your like the easter bunny. Three weekends of the Super Family. I don't mind the lack of new Smallville if i get your stories instead.

Awww! Even with the angst lately?

I just hope the next three go over well. A LOT is getting ready to happen!

More IAL!!!!! WANT!!!

When is the next 12days_of_clois challenge anyway? I really need something like that right now.
Lois: IAL :: Clark Lois Mia Jonkalalanekent on April 10th, 2009 05:54 pm (UTC)
Yep, we're starting to plan for the next one right now. Just waiting to see a challenge that will work. You'll get it, I promise. ;)

Caroline is trying to decide what the next challenge will be and Anissa gave her two really good ideas: either a fic that is nothing but dialogue or a fic that has no dialogue at all. We have ideas for both.
