Back To Work  
Do I really have to go back to work? Really? Can't they pay me to stay home?

Seriously, they can't?


Well, first things first, unless we light a fire under our behinds, the chapter is going to have to be held for a week. The Muse decided to be fickle on vacation for once. I'm just happy we managed the one prompt from the Porn Battle, which I think turned out quite lovely. And we have a bit of work done on 12 Days. *crosses fingers* I'm hoping we'll have that ready for next weekend. Regardless, we'll have it in by deadline. There's a sneak peek in the sidebar for the next chapter, though, if you wish to look.

We didn't do much in Orlando except sleep and going to Lush to stock up this time. We got to see our beloved Alley (glitter_my_glam ) and Karis (who was working this time! YAY!) and found out just in time that our Youki-Hi bath bombs are being discontinued. :( That and my Spice Curls and Ooh-La-La soaps. They always pull out some of the items that are not the best sellers from time to time, but I never expected these to be among them. *sniffle* I'll just buy up as much as I can and horde it.

An upshot? Alley says that they're talkiing about a Soft Coeur body wash... *shiver* Now that, that is just sex on toast. Between the Soft Couer massage bar, the Flying Fox body wash, and the Honey, I Washed The Kids soap,  could just have a scent overload. Fr srs. The thought of a Soft Couer body wash is just... *drools* I ended up with a new jar of the Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze hair treatment, five of my Youki-Hi, and a Honey Bee bomb.  And our little Lush fairies snuck us some gifts: a little bottle of Fox and one of the Christmas boxes that contained a Snow Showers shower jelly and a Snowcake soap. I have a huge Retro order going through in the next week for what's not in store (I'm about halfway through my Queen of Hearts complexion soap and I seriously want to try Dark Angels).  And I'm likely going to ask Alley to pick up a few things for me in-store shortly. *facepalm* Suuucccch a Lushie. XD

htbthomas , I'm taking the rest of the week and doing my noms. I can't believe that you've only got two in at the two-week mark! *is shocked and horrified* Seriously, people, we need to get these in. There's no excuse for there only being two! This is another reason why the chapter is going to be held. I can't expect you guys to do yours when I haven't done mine.

I will also be catching up to the F-List in the next few days. I'd do it today if I didn't have to go in. Here's hoping that the store visit by one of the higher-ups was this morning and I don't have to clean like a maniac in a splint. God help me. *rolls eyes*

Love you guys!

Now we have six sets, and 4-5 more promised ones. They're just slower because the fandom is slower. It'll be fine. :)

I'm so sorry that I'm running behind like this, Mom. I just seem to have too many projects in the air this year to get everything done on time. I may have it in the day noms close, but I swear I'll get mine in.

Just to humbly say that I adore the preview you've given us...

Gotta love Richard. If he didn't exist, we'd have to invent him. He's so funny, in a very down-to-earth way, and he really brings out the fan in all of us. No wonder Lana's so taken with him!

If Supe's the obvious star of the show, then Richard is its unsung hero.


Lauré :)

It's really mind-blowing for me to think that I was originally planning to give him a hero's death when I was writing the first Act of LS. At the time, I just didn't want him standing in the way of the OTP, but I didn't want to make him a bad guy. Anissa vetoed that thought straight-away. So, we let him live.

And then I started to love him. I had liked him in SR, but I just didn't want him in the way of Lois and Kal-El. But the longer we wrote him, and the more he showed himself to us, the more I grew to really love him. By the time Lana showed up, we knew more of his backstory and knew that he wasn't perfect. Which just endeared him to us more.

Now? I couldn't imagine this story without him. He really is such a love and an invaluable member of the family. And boy, does he know it! XD

I read the chapter preview on the side bar and had to laugh when i pictured the look on richards face when he realized who clark was talking to.

Lol, you could get swine flu, lots of businesses in Christchurch have been quarantined and the employees stay at home still get paid. Yet the government continues to try and convince us having it is bad...
