Stargate recs etc.  
I'm just going to prod people over to destina's journal (::shoving motions::), as in the last few days she's posted her own happy!horny! J/D story, Endurance, and some great recs too.

Also, what she said, which to refit to my own issues, is: I'm often tired and distracted and a touch crabby, but comments are cheering, even if I don't answer them. I always *want* to answer them, but don't always attain that goal. Just so you know, if you're a new reader or something. I actually wish that first-time comments by new readers were flagged in some way, because I'd make an extra effort to answer those. I imagine someone making a shy little mouse-peep of a comment, but I don't recognize it as such, and fail to answer it, and then someone gets very disappointed and retreats into lurkerdom and I've missed a chance to chat. Though admittedly even when someone says, "Coming out of lurker mode..." to comment, I often miss the boat there too. I've punished myself for these sins by wearing tight shoes today, and forgiven myself by taking them the hell off.

More on shoes later.

*makes a shy little mouse-peep and waves*

Frankly, I'm pretty darn intimidated posting comments to the fairly well-known authors ... I can just picture them sitting at their monitors muttering, "Alright, who let this clown into my LJ?" But I'm going to keep your words in mind and comment more often. :)

Just kidding. *g*

Authors are just as neurotic and needy as the next people...person. You should not worry, I swear. *g*

I'm also tired and distracted and crabby, so come sit by me.

*sits next to you*

I resisted fudge today. I held it in my hand like a soft warm newborn puppy (except edible) and then put it back down and told the confused countergirl: "Never mind." Now I can't even work up a "meh" for dinner. Sigh.

How are you doing? What are you up to tonight?

I just ordered in dinner--yellow rice with chorizo, fried plantains and salad--and am about to watch something, anything, off my TiVo. I'm tired out. But it was a good day. I shopped and had lunch with my editor and showed up to see an internet pal from out of town at a China y Latina restaurant in Chelsea--but I couldn't stay to eat, so I've just ordered in from that same restaurant.

Shoes!

I finally found shoes I can wear comfortably with skirts; shoes that look like heels but have just barely a 1-inch wedge. I like the way I walk in them, the way they click on the bare floor. I sound so grown-up and business-like. Heh.

I haven't read Destina's post yet, but I wanted to say that I've reading yours and not commenting because I often don't know what to say, especially about The Hard Stuff. And there are only so many ::hugs:: one can give before it sounds really inane. But I do read them ...

No worries--none at all! *squeeze*

Oh god, I know what you mean. I am all-the-time inane when I try to reply to personal stuff in other people's LJs. I'm just chronically at a loss. :P It's the equivalent of making awkward sympathetic noises in person, which I also do.
