Derby Day

This Derby Day was more interesting than many have been, just because the field was so wide open. Today's entertainment, aside from the race itself, was watching the horses and deciding which were built properly for coping with the muddy track.

I was sorry to see Lionheart in second place -- he was far and away my favorite this year, although I had a very soft spot in my heart for Birdstone. Great race, overall. More excitement than I can remember since 1991...

Every year I say this, and never seem to learn the lesson, but how in the world do all those people stay upright after a couple of juleps? I'm knocked for a big old loop after just one...Very glad to be at home, and not in the usual madding crowd. Racetracks in the rain are miserable.

I have way, way, way too much to do today (but my tummy is all better!).

--Auction work
--Slash and Firefly thank you notes
--most overdue of all: fic for onetwomany It has a name, and about 500 words so far. I fear it's just not what's been asked for, but it *is* S/B and not darkfic...I may abort this one and try a pwpish thing if it doesn't take a happier tone.

Hey! Did I miss your Angel ficathon entry? You know, the one you were fretting over? Coz I'm dying to know how that turned out...

Oh god. You. reminded. me.

Don't you know an ostrich act when you see one?

Smiles. Mostly kidding. The deadline for that is a long ways out, and this one is a backup fic for the Spuffy ficathon. I offered to do a backup fic, and intended to have it done in a jiffy, but then life took over, and now I've had time to think about it.

Still, it's S/B, maybe not worthy of the name Spuffy.

Oh, your writing my fic. No rush, cause I'm still working on my very overdue spuffyfic! And dark is fine - good even. I'm sure I'm love it no matter what you write :)

Oh, DAMMIT. I completely missed the race yesterday and I am furious with myself--especially after four or five days of concentrated reminding of myself that it Must. Not. Be. Missed. This year. crapcrapcrap.

So nice to know it was an exciting one!

And so nice to know you're feeling better! Stomach oogies are the worst. ::hugs::
