even more about horseshoe crabs

It would have been more useful if they told us when the full and new moons actually are!


OMG you guys!!

I always feel sheepish posting links. Not really sure it is ok. But look what I found, look!

I think it is his handwriting. I have never heard of him having a seccy. And really, why would he? Especially when he was living in a cheap apartment he shared with another guy. My feeling is that he did not have much money.


If any of you know that I am wrong, please let me know. I could very well be wrong-- often am. But I so want to believe that that is his writing.

Silly Byron

This is some funny writing. And we could all use a laugh.


In other news-- I am reading noir story about psychic elevator inspectors. Pretty good too.



I wrote a little thing last night, (very little,) and it got tagged wrong. It is Horatio/Archie, quite as usual. No Barbara in sight. I have tried nine times in a row to edit the tags. No go. Please read advisedly.

Who Let the Boys Out

Horatio was first, this time. Read more...Collapse )

Really relaxed policemen

Got police report from my accident. Did think it was a little weird that the police who came to the scene said 'We are not here to blame anyone or find fault.' I kind of thought that was part of their job.

But they were true to their word. Report does not seem to find anyone at fault. I am fine with that. Nobody got hurt, that is most important always. Not sure how this will impact repair of my poor car though.

Othet driver was a kid, not much older than Claire. She cut abruptly in front of me-- a mistake of inexperience. It was her dad's car.

I am noticing now that the city is full of people who function as adults, but who could be my kids. Weird.

Still here

I have been pretty scarce lately, but I am still here. I have just allowed myself-- as I should not-- to get all preoccupied with the daily stuff of life. And the thing about the daily stuff is this: it just keeps on coming at you.

We had a computer disaster which resulted in loosing the entire Linux hard drive. That had my ongoing writing saved on it. It was not a lot, but I will have to do it over and that seems daunting. Still have Windows, but since that was not acting as the primary it is less fun. (If anyone wants to give me a jump-start with some prompts for Hornblower or Marlowe I will try to fill them. It might help with the hesitation on the diving board... I hope you don't think I am weird for asking, but if there is anything you would like to see, I bet it will help to unstick me.)

Got into a minor car accident, nobody hurt, and the car still goes, but it is not pretty anymore and I have some worries about the suspension.

Husband is in finals week, stressing about his tests, and stressing about his classes over the summer. He is doing pretty well, actually as far as grades and test scores. He usually does, but he finds it nervous-making.

Son was accepted to start in the fall at SUNY Buffalo! This is wonderful good news, and he is very excited. Now we just have to do the FAFSA, and all the hoops to get him there.

Daughter was accepted at several schools, but now feels she would like to take a semester off and go in after Christmas. This is ok with me, 18 is so young, there is no need to rush.

I can hardly imagine my house without them. It will be really weird. I have been a mom with offspring at home for half my life. I am going to try to enjoy their company this summer, it will never be quite this way again.

Hope you are all well out there.

That poor monkey

Not Florida, but in the spirit of Florida somehow.


Embezzling from the Girl Scouts happens a lot I have heard. I have no love for the Girl Scouts, (long story involving bacterial Pneumonia,) but this guy seems like a jerk. I hope the little girls get their cookie money back, I hope the monkey gets a new home.


re fic hunt

It turns out that I do have a few stories from Horatio's return from the pit. They are mostly from Archie's pov. It is not surprising that they were hard to find-- they are from 5 years back!




Hope this helps! I am curious to know if the way I imagined it seems right to you.
