Dememe flatview emulator is at http://dememe.info/flat_view (same login as the regular Dememe info above).
At that time I will default all uncompleted main assignments. If you feel like you will need an extension then email me before the due time at email@example.com. Extensions come with the penalty of having to complete one additional extra gift that meets the minimum requirements of an assignment for a participant other than yourself, before next year's sign-ups end.
If you have a pinch hit I will not default you but will instead send a check in email to see how you are doing. If you need extra time it will be granted at no penalty regardless of how early it was claimed.
ANYA: I think we screwed it up. She's broken.
WILLOW: No! She's not broken! She's just .... disoriented from being ... tormented in some hell dimension. Probably tortured and ... It's like, we don't even know how much time has passed there for her, uh, possibly years. That's not something you just get over. Oh my God. What if she never gets over it?
ANYA: And you think of this now?

(Though you could argue that Polunin musters up more authentic agony, whereas Lambiel just looks like he's having a lot of fun.)
When the Supreme Court hears Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission they'll be deciding the future of equality in America. We need to make sure Supreme Court Justices hear loud and clear that America stands on the side of progress – and that means making sure your Members of Congress stand up with you, too.
Also, friendly reminder that if you are a US Citizen who would like to keep pressure on Congress to do the right thing, 5calls.org is an excellent website that gives you a bunch of current issues to choose from, phone numbers to call, and a script to say.

If you are somewhat familiar, or you want to "brush up" your memory for those course/s you took in high school or university/college, this site is a good place to start.

Had a very lovely day yesterday - we went down to Cambridge to see Miss M, so after a lovely breakfast & opening cards/presents we were out of the door a little after 9am.
After having a wander around the town (and buying a couple of things) we went and had a picnic lunch which Darcy had prepared earlier. (As it was a cold and windy day, we had the picnic in Miss M's room.)
We then went to the Botanical Gardens, where it was Apple Day (the_royal_anna will know which this was a particular draw), but it was interesting (and very pretty) apart from that.
Had a nice 'tea' from Dominos and then set off back home. But twas a lovely day, with all my girls. ♥
And then this afternoon one of my oldest childhood friends came to visit with husband and children. The children are 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 and adorable, so it was a very nice afternoon. :)

Delightful Spike/Angel vid by double_duchess that I happened to come across:
I Hate You
Am also watching Victoria, but way behind (tend to watch episodes a day or two before the disappear off ITVPlayer). However it keeps being as wonderful as before, and honestly I could watch them forever. (Just watched the one where they go to France, so no spoilers beyond that please.)
Also watching The Good Place and have started on iZombie on Netflix (Dr Ravi is my new favourite everything). Not that they aren't all brilliant, and it does so many things I appreciate. <3
And that's all for now, should probably go interact with the world, even if most of my friends live in my computer. Thank you all for just being you. ♥
Cordelia and her friends were sufficiently bored by Saturday night's dance that they left after about an hour (considering it was a bit more than $25 per ticket, that seems like a terrible return on our money). They walked to one of Cordelia's friend's houses. Cordelia says she really wished for a jacket or sweatshirt because her dress is sleeveless.
Scott got really pretty cranky about not getting around to mowing the lawn on Saturday. The front lawn looks okay even when it doesn't get mowed for weeks, but the backyard actually gets sun for a lot of the day, and it gets pretty shaggy. I don't care because we don't do anything out there and because no one can see it but our neighbors who don't much care. Scott, however, was brought up with the idea that lawn care is Important as a sign of competent adulthood.
Seriously, when we were house hunting, we looked for the smallest lawn we could get. (Condos weren't an option because, in our price range, they were all either too small for our bed (or our books) or very, very vertical; most were both. We were more concerned about limiting stairs than about lawns.)
We got sandwiches while we were doing our library run yesterday because I was running out of time to eat. Scott got a sandwich with pesto, and the basil was so strong that I really wanted to get up and move because my mind associates the smell with getting sick after eating it. I hadn't expected to have that reaction, and I'll need to mention it to Scott so that he knows for next time. I don't mind him eating it, but it would be much better if we sat at separate tables for it.
We have no idea if we'll be able to go to the celebration for Scott's sister's birthday on Saturday. Her family needs to be done and gone before we can possibly get there if Scott's working that day. Sunday wasn't an option because of a choir fundraiser that will keep Cordelia most of the afternoon combined with me not being able to eat anything at all after 6 p.m. on school nights.
I think I'm in spitting distance of the end of the first draft of the story I'm currently working on. I hope so, anyway. I know the main thing I need to address when I edit. I just keep cat waxing, though. I can write a couple hundred words, and then I need to stop for a while. Mostly, right now, I'm looking over saved prompts to see which ones I really, really want to write. I think I need to delete any that don't give me immediate plot bunnies. Well, I'll keep the ones from people I know, too, with a generous definition of 'know.'
