RL has been a bit crazy these past days weeks months, so my spare time's been a bit limited.

It seemed a good time to fully move to DW, although I may reconsider that within the next 30 days, like the indecisive person that I am.

Fandom-wise, I watched the first few episodes of the Nikita reboot, which I enjoyed for Maggie Q being badass and sexy. It's not enough to make me sure I want to get the rest of the series (I'm ... not really into shows where everything is Serious Business, Drama and Tragic Pasts) but we'll see.

Manga-wise, I treated myself to a reread of Ouran High School Host Club, which is still one of the most sheer fun manga I own. (This reread will be my first time reading the final volume. Ahem. Excitement mixed with 'but then it will really be over and I will not get to read new Ouran stuff ever again'?)

Bookwise, I'm wrapping up my reread of Jack McDevitt's Priscilla Hutchins series, which ... well, I really like that this is SF without any military aspect. It's strictly archaeology in space, exploring alien planets and civilizations and dealing with the bureaucracy/mundane stuff that comes with having a whole universe to explore.

And then something goes really, really wrong and we're suddenly in a slasher or disaster movie, and it's kind of cool and exciting, but also hey, I sort of liked that character and now they're dead?

And then we get to a planet where everyone's sort of polyamorous, except also 100% straight, and I'm ... a bit puzzled and wondering if the author's really that oblivious (it's less a statement of everyone being 100% straight and more a statement of 'these people have multiple sexual partners! and orgies sponsored by the local Philosophy Society!' and then only ever meeting guys appreciative of girls, and girls appreciative of guys). I like some other bits of these books, but ... this just feels weird and a little uncomfortable. (One throwaway line would have been enough! One! I'm easy!)

... Okay, maybe that bit bothered me a bit more than I thought, and I'm not actually that easy.

Hey dude, as long as posts keep showing up on LJ to notify me when you've posted, you can use this silly DreamWidth thing. I'LL ALLOW IT. ;)

I never read the end of the Ouran manga. I watched the end of the show, was disappointed, and never finished. Is it considerably different?

So my boss is on vacation for a week and I've literally finished every single thing she assigned me to do this week (it's Tuesday, man, I'm going to cry). I'm contemplating writing comment!fic. At work. Lord help me.

I have the Monday after Easter off, actually -- it's the Massachusetts Only Patriot's Day. Because MA has its own holidays?

I totally wasn't looking for discouragement. ;) I managed to find a couple things to do. One of which was "look through Hils' old fic recs for something I haven't read yet."
