the flight of the lemur

Links stolen from my flist:

"Freaky animal things," as boniblithe called them. Freaky animal things! She is so right. These will haunt my dreams. Note if you have slow modem connection--there are dozens of images, vertically stacked. See also original source?

Rec lifted from circe_tigana, for Letter of Marque, a Sparrow/Norrington story from cupiscent. Just amazingly good writing, funny, clear as a bell, and great great Norrington.

Thirty-two minutes until I can plausibly leave work. God, I'm such a wart. A wart on a sloth that is sitting on the log of humanity.

You know what I want? I want to come back to work in three months, when my leave is up, and have them tell me: "We think you'll be a great [insert exciting new job here]! Here's your own office! And a ten-thousand dollar raise! You'll mostly be working alone, doing your own thing--just let us know if you need anything!" Yeah.

Twenty-nine minutes.

ETA: I don't know what I was thinking. Make that a twenty-thousand dollar raise. Anything more than that and my liberal white slacker protestant work ethic guilt would probably swamp me.

ETA 2.0: Another link, of the 10 worst album covers of all time. One of those things that's been around forever, probably, but...did I mention I am bored?

another S/X rec

From the Inquisition:

The highly porny On Location in Egypt by dessert_first

This is a fucking riot. It's amazing, the kind of twisted genius writers can pull off if they just saunter confidently across the tightrope without looking down. Hee. This needed more ending though. More story, more ending. Just, you know, more. A bit of an abrupt stop--bang, car running out of gas, instead of a lovely coast into the sunset.
