Sherlock beta?

Heeeee~ey. I don't suppose anyone would be up for betaing about 7k of Sherlock fic? It's AU. Really AU. But I don't want to tell you what it's about because then you'll judge me. Hell, I judge me.

But yeah .... it might be set in a London where vampires control everything and humans are all slaves. Wow, just writing it out makes it sound even worse. I was working on a really respectable case!fic, but sometimes vampire!slave!AU fics just happen. And really, it's not as bad as it sounds?

At any rate, if you think you might be up for looking over it drop me a line here or at rb.lurks @ -- you know, if you don't want your name associated with it.

Joanna Newsom

bironic  was looking for musical suggestions, so I thought I'd post some Joanna Newsom for posterity. Joanna Newsom has a rather eclectic style, but she grows on you. Or at least, she did me, although judging by youtube, public opinion is split.

Track List

Bridges and Balloons -- The Decemberists' cover

I hate it when my life is eventful.

I left work early this afternoon. My car hasn't been doing so hot in this brutally cold weather and it's especially challenging to drive on snow. So when the snow really started coming down, I bailed hoping to make it before the roads got too bad.

Long story short: My car went kaput. 

But: I had my phone. It was charged. I was wearing weather-appropriate clothing. All told, it took less than an hour and a half to make it home. The tow-truck driver was a nice dude. And I have the cash to cover the repairs, thank god.

So I'm actually in a really good mood, go figure.

ETA: Well, I've got my car back. I really didn't understand the mechanic when he explained it too me -- partly because I know nothing about cars and partly because he's got an accent that makes "well" two syllables and rhyme with "whale" -- but now I don't have AC, my car runs fine and I'm $150 lighter. $150 is, coincidentally, almost the exact amount of money I got for my birthday and Christmas. Ah well. Easy come, easy go.
Life on Mars

Happy Belated Whatever

Good lord. It has been ages since I've posted anything. Which actually brings me to my New Year's resolution: post something (anything!) once a week. Also, comment more. I swear, I'm the worst sort of lurker. But if you're on my f-list, you can rest assured I'm reading your posts with avid interest! ...I'm just crummy at finding something to say afterwards. Plus I suffer from the lazy. Which is why my New Year's post is coming on January 2nd.
