-We sold another book! Peripheral People found a home. Details will be forthcoming once we have the go-ahead.
-I'm going to Iceland next week to see my best friend, [livejournal.com profile] interminable, and attend Iceland Airwaves.
-I will see glaciers, and icebergs, and Blue Lagoon, and Of Monsters and Men on their home turf.


-I might see a puffin! If I don't see one, I'm going to eat one. Part of one, anyway. (I said this just to make Michelle sad. ;)
-I'm taking a bunch of books donated by authors who attended GayRomLit to the GLBTQ center library in Reykjavik.
-I might even have everything done by the time I leave!


-Over the past 4 days, I've gone from climbing 3 flights of stairs with no problem to panting for breath after half a flight. I've also been having pain in my chest. I would worry about this a LOT, had I not JUST (like, seriously, a week ago!) had an ECG done, where they told me other than a very mild murmur, my heart is a-okay. I think it's a combo of weird sleeping positions, allergies, and asthma. I'm going to the doctor this afternoon, in case they can give me something to take so I can breathe while I'm in Iceland. In conclusion- FU, lungs.
-Adderall feels exactly like Xanax to me. Everything is kind of muted and gentle, and it's awesome. Like all drugs that make me feel good, I am suspicious of it. A family history of addiction will seriously fuck with your ability to acknowledge that sometimes, pills that make things better are SUPPOSED to make you feel good. It's also, as advertised, great for focus. If only I had not focused on Teen Wolf tumblrs!
-Heavy exposure to Teen Wolf has left me with a strong desire to rub Stiles' head. And tell Derek that it's okay, bad people won't lock him in his basement and electrocute him while talking about how they sexually abused him anymore. HOLY FUCK, show.

Congratulations! That's awesome.

I'm glad you're going to the doctor. Breathing troubles are nothing to take lightly.

And finally: Oh my God, yes. What happened to Derek is quite possibly the most horrifying back story I've ever seen on TV. Holy fuck show, indeed!

Yeah, I have learned that. And I've never had shortness of breath like this except when I've had pneumonia, so better to get it checked out before I go overseas.

My jaw dropped when I read his backstory in a primer, and it just kept getting worse. Holy crap. And yet, fandom at large seems to mostly ignore it in fic.

Stiles has long hair now, by the way. Or he was wearing a wig at that movie shoot in SF a few weeks ago...

PS- Have met the kid and he's a sweetie. I would have rubbed his noggin, but it would have been weird. Look for him in The First Time which is coming out some time in the next few months.

I think it's grown out, yeah. I still want to touch it. If that's wrong-- no, that's wrong. Oh well. ;)

That makes me happy. I like it when boys I find attractive aren't assholes. And I've been keeping an eye out for it. Did you see it at Sundance, or is it just something you know about because you Know Things?

It was a Sundance film. I think I posted the pic of my friend and I with him.

PS We need to talk about the book thing. Are you around in... two weeks?

Yes you did. I didn't know who he was at the time, but now I'm jealous. *grin*

I should be. I might go out of town on Veteran's Day weekend, but it depends on whether or not I'm cleared to fly yet. That would be great, though!

It's welrd. I saw him at GG Park and thought, "THAT'S ANDREW GARFIELD." because, you know, lanky and tall? And the rooster hair? And then someone said, "Oh, that's Stiles." Dur. :p

"Cleared to fly"? Are you the person Mom warned me about? Yeah, that's cool. I'm in NOLA from Monday (barring storm) to Saturday the 3rd, so after that and before you head out.

Heehee. Spiderman's got nothing on Stiles.

Ah. I spent the past two and a half days in the hospital because I had multiple pulmonary embolisms. I was supposed to be getting on a plane in two hours to go to Iceland, but I'm not allowed to fly for awhile until the blood thinners I'm taking are stabilized.

Basically, my lungs are pissing me off right now, even more than they do normally, but when a doctor tells you, "You would have died if you'd ignored this and gotten on that airplane.", you kind of have to chill.

THIS. But on a random note, Garfield is pretty epic in his own right.

Ew. Don't do that. And listen to your doctor. Yikes and begorrah. Very glad you're okay.

Also, my flight just got cancelled and frankly I am not up for a round of "GET ME THE HELL OUT OF HERE, ORBITZ!" so if we haven't washed away by tomorrow night, wanna try for this week some time?

True, true! I quite like Andrew Garfield. He's adorable in interviews.

Is there a time that looks good for you? I don't know what Sandy is going to do to the week, or how many follow-up appointments I'm going to have, so planning is hard, but I'd like to try!

ETA: And thank you, I'm glad too! :)

Congrats on the sale! And have fun on your trip! Iceland.....is that rotten buried shark food land?

Thanks! I'm glad to have sold the book to a publisher I think will treat it well, and can't wait to head out on my trip. Yes, frozen, rotten shark. I'll see if I can get past the smell.

Vodka. I think that's what vodka is for (getting past the smell of, what the Hell is it, ludafish? Lukafish? Does it live on the second floor?)
