Mmm, watching the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics on TV right now, with a flurry of thoughts going through my head:

1)  They really went all out for the opening ceremony performances. (purdy fireworks!)
2)  The money spent on all that could have been put to better use... like maybe feeding the hungry.... :P
3)  There are so many countries in this whole parade of countries.   @_@
4)  Poor dude from Niger!  He's the only athlete from his country!  One really is the loneliest number.
5)  WTF is up with Hungary's women's outfits???  It looks like a flower field threw up over the fabric. 
6)  Speaking of outfits... the Ralph Lauren designed US outfits.  They make the athletes look like they're going yachting or something... and the berets aren't helping that image. 

Will post today's drabble in a bit, after the ceremony is over.



EDIT:  Holy crap, the torch lighting was made of AWESOME!

Blah...

Running into that nasty writer's block.  I've decided that I write angst well, but not action... nor exposition, apparently.  How depressing.

In the months since I last posted, I've resigned from my job at Stanford, moved across the country, and taken a new position in Boston.  I'm now the lab manager of one of the new fellows at Whitehead Institute.  Prestigous, no?  Still, it's been a big move for me, especially considering I've lived in California for most of my life.  Maybe that's contributing to the writer's block. 

Nah. 

It's like every time I open up the file to continue the story, something stops my fingers and my mind draws a blank.  I can think of exactly how I want the story to progress--I can practically see it in my head--and yet, something stops me from putting it down on paper (or a Word document, to be exact).  Maybe I'm too afraid that what I come up with will be stupid or crappy... or heaven forbid, stupid AND crappy.  Or maybe not, since I know I'll revise and edit the heck out of the thing before even considering showing it to a beta to proof.

Blah. 

Erk...

Oh dear...is it bad for me to be even *contemplating* writing a Tachibana X Fuji fic? ^^;; I mean, come on...don't tell me you couldn't feel those vibes eminating from episode 125 of Tenipuri! Those deep, soulful eyes...the concerned looks on each other's faces... ^^;;

I *may* just have to do my very first shounen ai fic on this. ^^;; Oh dear...

Ficcing journal, perhaps? Only started this one cuz of sheep syndrome...must follow everyone else. Main blog remains in the same place, but will use this one for [livejournal.com profile] fourcats (Four Cats) related business.

There, did my deed for the day.
