I was in sore need of distraction today so I started flipping through channels as I had my morning coffee. Suddenly, I see Mulder and Scully on the screen, looking incredibly young and fresh, driving into Bellefleur, Oregon on a case, and I realize I'm watching the pilot of the X-Filles on BBC. BBC had a mini-marathon: the pilot, "Deep Throat" and "Squeeze" (remember Eugene Tooms?).

I felt  like I was gazing through a time portal. Memories of Usenet groups and telneting to email lists where discussions about every aspect of the episodes went on and on for days, rose in my mind. I remembered 'discovering' Alex Krycek in all his raw, young beauty, remembered all the fanfic that flowed like a river in flood season. Then, I thought about all the fan friends I had connected with as a result of that one show, many of whom I never 'met' face to face, but whose acquaintance enriched my life. Amazing.

Those halcyon days are gone, but the treasured memories will always be with me.

Happy Valentine's Day and Year of the TIger! It's a twofer day.

I'm a little frustrated because  LJ won't allow me to post the story here because "it is too large". It's only 5,200 words which doesn't seem too large to me since I've posted longer stories before. Is it just me or is LJ getting more and more user unfriendly and wimpy?

So, I'm posting the link to the story because I don't like posting stuff in parts, particularly since I doubt there's much interest anyway (given that It's M/K schmoop from a pint-sized perspective and rated PG):

Someone sent me this quiz which I'm sure has been around and around, but I'd never tried it. Gave it a go and seems I am a:


Shetland Sheepdog! Looks like a mini Lassie. Wish I was that cute, lol! Anyway, if anyone's interested in discovering their Inner Dog, here's
the link: http://www.gone2thedogs.com/index.html?/game.html (click the link on the right pane) Lemme know what you get.

Other than that, I'm chipping away at a holiday story for the AK mini-zine and am pleased that others are doing the same.

Discovered that my mild-mannered and extremely gentle cat, Tommy, would rather break every bone in his body than be put into a cat carrier and taken to the vet for his annual exam. Let's just say, he won the wrestling match. No vet visit. Now, what do I do if he ever really *needs* to go, that's the question.

On the even more trivial side, I'm baking cookies tomorrow for a cookie exchange at work. Doing one with apricots, pine nuts, toasted almonds and an amaretto glaze. Never did a cookie exchange before. Looking forward to it.

Here's to keeping warm and making the best of the holidays. I know it's been rough for a lot of you. Hope we all have a much better New Year.

I couldn't let Nick's birthday go by without doing something. I hope we get to see more of Nick this year and in some better projects...please! Anyway, just dashed off this drabble...Happy Birthday, Nick!

Here's the drabble...Collapse )

This is what happens when I have to work on a Sunday! I've never attempted crackfic before (lucky for you), but I remembered reading a delightful series of anthropomorphic stories in another fandom and wondered if I could do something similar for XF. I should probably apologize for this in advance, but I won't. I enjoyed it too much. :D After all, it combines two of the things I enjoy most in life. So, with ample warning and in hopes that it provides you with a smile or two, I present:
