First, happy Mother's Day to those of you celebrating (and I figure most of us either have a mom/mom sub to celebrate, or are moms)! Mike and the boys went to the Derby party in VA without me yesterday, as I needed to be at work at 6am yesterday. But I slept in today, and they are going to be home in time to take me to a little Italian place in Raleigh that I love.

Second, Dragon*Con is happening. Tickets are purchased, and briberyproper arrangements are made with husband. Who's going?

Third: Is it Tuesday yet?

I've got about half a dozen unfinished pieces of fiction here, and I don't guess any of them are going to truly get written until I am at peace with the big mysteries. I definitely think this is a hangover from Jossian fandom: I am way too invested in the pure joy of the story to dive into an AUish place with them, right now. When the finale is over, there will be time enough to really study them in depth, and I'll have the entire season in front of me as fodder. Just can't quite jump in blind.

And until Tuesday at 10pm, blind is what I am (we all are?). I've never watched a show where there was such a *tight* construction -- there's just nothing wasted in VM. Nothing at all. No throwaway lines, no throwaway images. Hell, I'm not even sure there are throwaway jokes.

The true beauty of this show is that there are still so many viable ways the puzzle could solve.

I'm getting all stirred up here, and need to get in the car and go (*ugh*) to work for a couple hours. Many reports need to be done, and some schedules for OT in operations. I want to have that done before the boys get home from VA.

::chamapagne and chocolate for all::

*hugs you*

I did, I did.

Yummy food, good wine, and fun children (yeah, the two *boys* do a fabulous job at grown up eateries. They even tried the squid!)

Happy Mother's Day to you, too! ::long distance hug::

Third: Is it Tuesday yet?

Oh, dear God. I'm on pins and needles. I am *obsessed* with this show. I have theories, but they're all half baked.

I am really, really excited about fanfic- I need to get my hands on the season in its entirety so I can start writing! And *you* are working on fic! Yay, yay, yay! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

And just FYI- Logan, Logan, Logan. Love the character, and must scrutinize every scene he is in in further detail. However, the puca shell necklace really irritates me :)

What eps are you missing? Email me directly, pretty please. We'll *fix* that.

Oh! And I like the necklace! I'm trying to remember: you liked the pimpmeister jewelry on Spike, didn't you? Hated that. Moondoggie much more my style.

But you know, I don't actually think Logan's very attractive. More "cute" than anything, I guess. He's kinda got chipmunk face, and really ordinry eyes and hair, etc. Don't get me wrong: I'm fascinated so far. But it's *entirely* the chemistry those two actors are making and the story they're acting out. Oh. Well, waitaminit. There is one thing about Logan: his voice -- gets right down into my spine.

The chicken piccatta was wonderful, and the tiramisu divine. I have *no* complaints!

How funny, I didn't realize you lived in the Triangle as well. I'm in Durham myself. That practically makes us neighbors. lol

I'm also considering Dragon*Con. It's right after my big 40 and a couple of friends might roadtrip along with me. I've never been to a convention before though so I'm a little nervous at the prospect.

Right there with you on the VM fascination. There are so many different potential resolutions to the big murder reveal and they could all be plausible. I can't wait to see how things shake out.

Happy Mother's Day to you as well. :)

Hi there! (friending)

I'm not really quite in the triangle, up here near the VA border, but when I worked in RTP, I used to drive through Durham every day. It's nice to meet someone else who's close by. Mezzibelle used to be down your way, and ladyanne is in Raleigh somewhere.

D*C is definitely different for me. Biggest I've been to 'til now is Shore Leave at about 2k. This is more like what, 30k? There are a couple of friends who are going who I am relying on to keep me sane -- they've both been before :-) I guess there's not much I wouldn't do to hear Joss talk, though.

As for VM? I am sooooo in love. It's crazy. This is definitely an obsession at this point. I even dreamed it last night. I really don't think this is like Buffy or Angel much at all, except on my level of engagement. *That* is no different. I'm sitting here wishing for a wildfeed to download and watch. Sigh. Old times. I'm not on the spoiler train since S6 of Buffy, but I miss getting eps to watch early!

ITA
with the VM assesment. Nothing is wasted and the beauty of it all coming together (or not) in so many possible ways.

I can't even begin to think of fic writing for this till I see how it somewhat resolves tomorrow night, though I may dabble in drabble at some point (but I guess not likely in the next 20 hours, so may as well wait).

I'm looking forward to the ending, to chatting about the OMGness of it all and to begin the fic (it's gonna be a long summer, after all!). I'm gonna miss speculating with you, so we'll have to keep ourselves occupied with all the fic possibilities!

"See" ya tomorrow night!

Marriott. We are already booked Thursday - Monday night, I *think* (it's on my laptop). so, whatever you need, if you need, just let me know. Even if you only wanna crash a night or two!

:-)
