I hope everyone had a nice day!

And for those of you who celebrate it, a very happy Gilmore Girls Revival Day tomorrow. :-) I can't believe I'm nervous about it. About a TV show! I won't say what I'd like to happen, or what I'd like not to happen, because I've already been through enough Gilmore Girls-related online debates and don't have energy left for any more. I just hope all my favorite characters end up in a good place!

. . . I have only one thing to say, and I think I'll let Tom Servo say it for me.

Oh, Julia

This poor girl cannot catch a break. Just when she's on the upswing, she gets knocked down again.

You think baseball is a heartrbreaking sport? Try being a skating fan.

For a while I've suspected something, and now I'm almost certain of it: I no longer have the attention span, the mental energy, or the interest to follow a TV series. Over the past few years I've had friends try to get me into "Foyle's War," "Call the Midwife," "Endeavour," "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," and I don't know how many more. Usually I'll give it a try, enjoy a few episodes, realize I don't care whether I ever find out what happens, and drift away.

Thanks for the kind comments about my dental woes! And now I owe you all a nice post to make up for the grumpy posts. So here, have a lovely (and gold-medal-winning!) skate from Alex and Maia Shibutani. I was just bowled over by this.

And bonus silver-medal-winning skate from Jason Brown! I've never been a Jason uberfan, but he did an AMAZING job here.

My dentist has perfected a torture technique: sticking me in a dark room for long periods of time time with "relaxing" music. I hate "relaxing" music. It does not relax me. It bores and irritates me. He's done it twice now, and this time I was so "relaxed" I was about to bolt through the wall like a comic strip character.

And as the point of the whole exercise was to get me used to the new appliance that's going to straighten my jaw, which I have to wear 24/7 EVEN WHEN EATING (yuck!), relaxation was probably never in the cards, anyway.

This sucks

Pardon my French, but I'm bummed. My favorite male skater* is sitting out this season (and possibly longer). My favorite female skater* has a crappy long program this year, and is dealing with injury, and is generally struggling. Skating season has barely begun, and already it SUCKS.

Maybe I should switch to baseball. Those fans seem to be having a great time!

*Current favorite, not all-time favorite!

I don't know what to do about bulbs this year. My mom suggested leaving the daffodil bulbs to come up again (we know they can do this, because there are some scattered out in the woods, courtesy of the squirrels, that come up year after year) and just buying new tulip bulbs. But as we didn't dig any of them up last year -- just cut off all the foliage -- I'm worried we won't be able to tell daffodils from tulips, or we'll wind up planting bulbs on top of bulbs, or or or. (I know you can dig up and re-use tulilp bulbs, at least theoretically, but that takes a lot of care I don't have time to give them, and a lot of storage space that I don't have either.)

Does anyone have experience with bulbs? How would you handle this?

I haven't seen anyone doing this on LJ yet, but it's all the rage on Facebook. I did one, but then I slightly rethought my choices, so I'm redoing it here! The idea is simple: Describe yourself in three fictional characters.

I choose . . .

Just wanted to show you the poster my parents got me for my birthday! It's "The Staircase of the Opera" by Louis Beroud, and I've been wanting it for years!

Have a picture of Alec Guinness with a kitten.

If I had any graphics skills, I'd fix that problem with the white marks. Alas, I don't. But I think it's pretty cute anyway!

Update: Fortunately, [ profile] lindahoyland DOES have graphics skills, and she cleaned it up for me. Thanks, Linda!

So other than my little rant yesterday (sorry about that, I was in a bad mood :-) ), I haven't posted much lately. A few quick updates: Phantom, kittens, and godchildren )

I've decided the worst thing about the new LJ format is the headlines on the side. As if trending headlines on Facebook weren't enough of a study in asininity, now we get them here too. "Johnny Depp sends his first set of payments from Amber Heard divorce settlement to charities"! "Taylor Swift wishes Blake Lively a happy birthday!" WHOOP DE FREAKING DO. If we have to have the things, couldn't they be about something substantial or at least interesting?

Two of these little guys got adopted. My neighbor (who's been going to the Humane Society to visit them) reports that the other one was not happy about it. :-( I hope someone takes him soon.

But she's got two new foster kittens at her house, and I can go see them as soon as they get over a case of giardia! I'm thinking of putting Kitten Socialization Specialist on my business cards.

Gina's First Rule of Hair Coloring:

If you get your hair the perfect shade, and pamper it and nurture it with the very best color-safe shampoo you can find, it'll still start fading in a matter of days.

If you get your hair way, way, WAY too dark, and you try to lighten it by washing every day with El Cheapo non-color-safe shampoo and apple cider vinegar, nothing will induce it to fade.

At least this summer has had its occasional bright spots -- like these little guys. Meet Butch, Cassidy, and Sundance. :-) They're foster kittens that my neighbor has been taking care of, and they were so shy at first that she wanted help socializing them, so I had a standing invitation to come over and play with them. Best gig ever!

They go to the Humane Society shelter tomorrow, to be put up for adoption, and I'm happy to report they are no longer shy. Quite the contrary!

Just wanted to thank you all for the nice comments about the book. I confess I chuckled a bit over the comments that "it went so fast!" I guess it must have seemed fast, going by what I said here, but the truth is, I've been working on that book for literally years. It was only after I got the agent and the offer from the publisher that everything really accelerated.

All the more reason I'm thrilled to be done writing it! Of course lots of edits and revisions are before me, but editing is very different from actually having to create the thing.

Good news!

I finished writing the book today!

litlover12: (GK1)

There's a blogathon over here in honor of the day. I was supposed to contribute, but had to bow out because I've had no time for anything but the book lately. But I recommend reading it anyway. There are some really good pieces!

P.S. Hmm, my gifs don't seem to be gifing. Wonder what that's about . . .
