What a great word. What an apt, apt word.

swimming
I swam for the first time in years on Saturday--sixteen laps with a mouthful of chlorine. Yay! And then shot baskets. And then did some weights. I itched to wear myself out.

mea culpa
A year or two from now I'm going to look back on my recent posts and think, "Oh god, SHUT UP." And also: "Panty-liners? WTF?!" Incidentally, "apologia" is also a cool word. It'd be a cool name too. "This is my daughter, Apologia--she attends Barnard. She's double-majoring in Medieval Studies and Art History." That was my alternate life.

thought of the day
The soul does not cry out for yogurt.

last time I was merely being figurative
I accidentally doused my shoes in gasoline this weekend. They are, literally, hosed. They are also highly flammable, like my thighs. But as with so many other occasions--Thursdays, paychecks, ennui--this is an opportunity to buy new shoes.

quote of the day
PM: (lethargic) "Hello."

Anna: "Hi, P___? This is Anna in _______."

PM: (lethargic) "Hey."

Anna: "Hi, I was told you were assigned to take over this project and I wanted to check with you on where the launch date stands."

PM: "I hope to launch this week."

Anna: "What day are you shooting for?"

PM: (long pause) "I'm not sure. I haven't looked yet to see what's left to be done."

Anna: "..."

By kormantic. I'm a little surprised I can't scroll down my flist and see 20 collared Johns at a time. Come on, people.

my morning
Madeleines. A flower-shop daisy. Comfy jeans. Tracy Chapman. And now someone is offering me banana bread. And merryish is back!

mood
I am less moody.

*kisses everyone*

Some of us like bondage!Rodney, instead. *g*

Also? Some of us are too busy writing Sheppard/Dex kinkfic to make collar!John icons. *koff*

Are you!? Really!?

Bacause *koff* I would be very happy to read something like that.

Are you!? Really!?

Indeed. I have so far discovered that Ronon is a really pushy bottom. John seems to like this, though, so I'm going with it.

Woot!

*sits patiently and waits for fic to appear*

I can give you collared Ronon.

Now we just need Teyla to make a set.

Oh, God. That's a set I can totally do with. I'm > < this close to being pushed over into the realm of OT4.

Oh god. THEY ARE ALL SO HOT WHEN THEY ARE COLLARED.

*whoosh*

Ooh, ooh, ooh! Collared Rodney. Yes. And you need to be writing Rodney/Dex smut fic. *g*
Zoë Rayne: rodney fetish longz_rayne on August 15th, 2005 05:34 pm (UTC)
And you need to be writing Rodney/Dex smut fic. *g*

I plead the fifth. *koff*

There's Rodney/Lorne upcoming from casspeach, Sheppard/Dex from me, and then a Sheppard/Dex/Rodney/Lorne collaboration to cap off the series. Shh. Don't tell anyone.

Alas, I am waiting for someone to make a smoking collared Rodney icon. Holy Jebus, he looked hot in that thing. ::fans self::

Go you with the swimming!

...so, you found a costume, I'm guessing.

I stayed at a YWCA in Vancouver where ladies could swim nude between 6 and 7 pm on Mondays. Sadly, I was the only one there!

That is an excellent word. (And yes, I had to look it up.) It comes from French words for sauce and gorging oneself. This is a word I can get behind. May I have a gallimaufry with you? Or perhaps respond to your gallimaufry...

Last week I had banana bread. This was not a good plan, because while a slice might not be bad for me, I ate about 3/4 of a loaf in two days. Yesterday I made banana bran muffins on the theory that I was unlikely to plow through muffins in the way I did slices, since muffins are units unto themselves. So far this theory seems to be working. :)

I got shoes from Zappos this morning that I ordered Saturday. I'm savoring the anticipation before I try them on... I'm afraid they'll be too big because reviewers said they ran big, but they didn't have the smaller size.

Creepy- I did that exact same thing yesterday as well! Ok, so mine are bannana raisin muffins not bananna bran muffins, but still. (They did turn out quite yummy... I'm having dificulty with the "only eat one" concept at the moment. oops.

I was thinking my banana bran muffins could use raisins! They're ok as they are, but they were better warm. I'm actually thinking of making more, this time with the baking powder, and seeing what happens. (We didn't have any, to my amazement.) I wonder what would happen if I just added raisins to the batter?

And yeah, it's hard resisting the call of the muffins... I put some in the freezer to mute their call... but even if I break down and have two or three, that's still less than five slices of banana bread. *g*

Mmm, scruffy Han...

Is that a euphemism for being sick? Because I think I would've shot baskets, too, after sixteen laps worth of cholorine...

>>They are also highly flammable, like my thighs.

Heeeeeeeee! And good for you with the swimming. I'm always afraid someone will watch me do laps and judge me harshly. Although I've never watched anyone do laps in my life.

I shoot baskets almost every time I go to the gym, and there are rows and rows of people on cardio machines facing the open court. I try hard not to think about it. *g* A few times now someone in the locker room will comment about it, and I get all tongue-tied. Fortunately I'm pretty good.

Yay for less moody :)

And, um... yay for new shoes!

Gallimaufry was also the title of an old sf fanzine; and just the other night on an episode of "Jazz", a series/doc I don't really care for but this section was good, they mentioned "gallimaufry shops" -- little stores with cheap (used?) goods of all kinds. I'd never heard that term before.

*sporfle* re launch date call. Let us know how that turns out...
