Today after work I went to Whole Paycheck* to buy shampoo. (I can't stand the perfuminess of most shampoos, but WP has an own-brand one that's available unscented or in nice, light natural citrus and herbal scents that I like.) So anyway, as I was wandering through WP, looking at all the no doubt delicious but ridiculously expensive treats, I happened upon some locally grown peaches at a price that, while higher than regular supermarkets, wasn't outrageously so. They were ripe enough to be gently soft. They smelled like peaches. I couldn't resist. I bought one.

I ate it just now and was reminded that yes, I do sometimes like fruit. It wasn't even the best peach I've ever had--Washington DC, where I used to live, is southern enough to be good peach country--but it was still succulent and juicy and had flavor. I'd been forgetting what a peach is supposed to taste like, after bad experiences this summer with supermarket fruit that went mushy on the ouside while being weirdly hard/crisp inside and tasted like styrofoam that had been stored next to an open jar of artificial peach flavoring.

Yes, I know, I should shop at farmers' markets if I want good produce. But our local farmers' market is shockingly expensive and only open once a week at an inconvenient time for me.

I'm just happy I had my peach.

BTW, if you were wondering, the ankle is still hurting me a bit but is a lot better than it was. This is good, because hobbling around was getting tiresome.



*Note for the confused: "Whole Paycheck" is the not entirely affectionate nickname of a US chain of healthy/gourmet supermarkets. The name gives you a sense of their prices, which are all the more outrageous because they are relentless union-busters, but my god they carry beautiful fruits and vegetables.

  1. If Ann dies, I will write Sue Ellen/Emma. Watch me. Watch me, and then blame [personal profile] aliya.
  2. In the meantime, I am attempting to write all the stupid, tropey fluff in the world. By the end of the day, you will have Ann and Sue Ellen practicing kissing fic. I really do mean all the stupid, tropey fluff.
  3. My mother is a horrible person. She said, "They might not tell us who dies. That might be the cliffhanger." And then she laughed when she realized I hadn't considered that.
  4. She also said, "They won't kill Ann because no one wants to see Patrick Duffy with his shirt off anymore, and they can't have him be a widower forever." You do realize that Tracey is there, ready to step in as Bobby's new love interest before Ann is even cold, right?

Via a couple of people, a fanfic meme (that I've also seen phrased a couple of different ways, at that): Post a snippet of your current WIPs without context!

These are in no particular order, and for the most part I'm sticking to WsIP that are far enough along to be in their own files.)

Single non-spoilery sentences from 13 fics (9 Newsflesh [inc. 3 AUs] and 4 Warehouse 13 [inc. Fringe crossover]) )

I.e. nothing of substance pretty much, more of a placeholder.

I have a brief hiatus of time to myself, having checked into Ye Quaynte Guesthowsse, between giving my talk (went okay, I think, and at least I hope spread the Mitchison fanness) and going out to dinner.

Quite a lot of my internet catch up is, I think, going to be deferred to tomorrow's train ride.
