Power up

Ugh, the power just came back on, after three days of darkness. It honestly wasn't too bad--I got a lot of reading done, and the inability to cook meant that someone sprang for tacos. But it was the principle of the thing, and it is a huge pain in the ass to go anwhere when all the traffic lights are out. Getting to PT took almost an hour, and it's normally and ten, fifteen minute drive.

In the planning stages for two long pieces, plus two femgenficathon sign ups and my fma ladyfest prompt. [livejournal.com profile] explicate has offered to help with ladyfest, happily, but does anyone know where to turn for what promises to be a ridiculous foray into LanFan's backstory, as well as a Sakura-centric Naruto fic? (It's a long story, but suffice to say, I love the idea of the Naruto verse far more than I can stomach the manga. I have a LOT to say about it, so fair warning! Avoid this topic if you don't really care!)

Clearly, I've gone crazy; I'm also looking at another round of internships. And today I taught the baby to crawl, which I'm sure her mom will be thrilled about.

Finished reading State of Wonder by Ann Patchett. I always compare her novels to Bel Canto, which is kind of a gold standard, and usually I find them lacking; however, I really love this new one. I think the plot it a little stronger than Bel Canto, and the writing is glorious, but I don't know if it's better. I need to think about it.

In other news, Farmer's Market tomorrow! And I also finished planting the rest of the garden, I have an insane amount of tomato plants. I am going to can so much produce this summer, I swear the neighbors are going to suspect the end times.
