Some notes on my life, of late:

Grandpa seems to be doing better. It was very touch and go all weekend, especially for the couple days where he wasn't eating or drinking anything, but my mom told me today that he'd eaten two meals yesterday and he'd been drinking enough liquids, so I'm going to cross my fingers and keep hoping, but not be too expectant. He slept most of the weekend, but when I talked to him on Sunday he was coherent enough to recognize that I was going back to school, to tell me to drive safe, and to return my "I love you" with an "I love you, too, kid." I talked to him on the phone yesterday and he told me to quit playin' and study hard.

I got to see my aunt this weekend, too. She's using a walker to get around while her leg heals (she broke it falling off a horse last month), but she was lively and seemed to be doing well. She's back at work, too, so things are going good on her end.

I had a job interview last Friday with a company called Mad Science. Working for them entails dressing up like a mad scientist and doing experiments with grade school kids at summer science camps. It pays well, but the hours are very few, and if I work for them I'd need another job to make rent. I have another interview the Saturday after next with a woman who needs a nanny for her two daughters starting on June 1st, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 to 5:30. The kids are 11 and 12, and I'd mostly be there to make them lunch and drive them around, so I'm gonna pray that they like me - and that I like them because the situation would be IDEAL, and I might even be able to still nanny for them when she school year starts again. Cross your fingers for me, guys!

Kentucky Derby party this Saturday. Hayley's parents (who love horses, and any excuse to drink, on TOP of being completely loaded!) are paying for the main food and that drink stuff - Hurray! Mint juleps! - and we're all going to put on sun dresses and big hats and play croquet and horse shoes in the yard, and go swimming after we watch the derby. I'm super excited!

Finals. UGH! Finals! I'm three weeks away form being done with the semester (next week is dead weak), and I've got one final next Thursday, one Monday, two on Tuesday, and one on Wednesday, and then I'm DONE! I still have to give my French oral presentation, but I really seem to have lucked out. I was supposed to go Monday, but I wasn't in class and they were running a day behind anyways, and then today we had to review for our mini-test, which we'll take on Friday, and then the teacher will be out of town on Monday, so the earliest I'll have to do the oral is next Wednesday. Thank you, Jesus!

Next Monday is May the 4th - Star Wars Day, for those of you not familiar with the holiday (Get it? May the 4th be with you?). I have a Jedi tunic in the works, and I reeeeaaaaally want these boots because they're sooooooo GFFA, but... $200? They're real leather, and I bet I could get my mom to split them with me... But then I'd still have to come up with $100, and I really can't afford that right now. Even if I'm contemplating whether or not not eating for a week is worth these boots - and I think it might be. I REALLY want to wear my Jedi costume to class on Monday...

And that's my rather awkward and obvious segue into my recent thoughts on the EU, mostly concerning NJO. )

But enough of that. I need to go work on my study guides, and maybe go buy some new shampoo (or possibly some hair dye, because either will help my hair problem). Off I go.

Also? It's been looking like rain all week, and nothing's come down yet. Weird.

Title: Punchline

Genre: romance/humor
Rating: PG-15ish
Characters/Pairings: Jacen/Tenel Ka, Jaina
Summary: Love is a joke with no punchline.
Author's Notes: There should be more skinny dipping. I'm sure everyone agrees with me.

Even if he ended up maimed, he honestly couldn't say he was sorry. )

The first of many responses for the Alphabet Drabbles Meme. There's still some letters open, if anyone's interested.

Title: Bedmates
Prompt: Q is for Quirks, for[livejournal.com profile] tehlobster
Fandom: Star Wars EU
Character/Pairing: Anybody/Jaina/Anybody, which translates to Zekk/Jaina/Jag
Rating: Gentle R

There really weren't a lot of downsides that Jaina could find to sharing her bed with two men. )

Alphabet Drabbles: For those unfamiliar, first you pick a letter and a corresponding word. Then you pick a fandom (or a crossover) and a character or pairing. For example, H is for Hug, Michael/Pam (The Office). In turn you'll receive a ficlet of some kind.

It could just be the sudden increase in my appreciation of Aaron Allston's returning health - thank the Lord things are going well for him! - but I am really genuinely enjoying Outcast in a way I haven't enjoyed a Star Wars: EU novel since Fury (say what you want about the Legacy series: that book was GOOD! [and, not coincidentally, also written by Mr. Allston]). Even as much as I enjoyed Fury, Legacy was a series that I could put down when I needed to - like, for instance, at 1:00am when I have class at 9:00am and between showering, dressing, eating, catching the bus, and walking, it takes me 2 hours to get ready and get to campus. Outcast is not only holding my attention, but captivating it.

And there's one thought that keeps running through my head... Non-spoilery spoilers beneath cut )

EDIT: And did I mention... )

Untitled

Title: Untitled
Fandom: Star Wars: EU, post NJO pre-Dark Nest
Genre: romance/humor
Rating: PG-15ish
Characters/Pairings: Anakin/Tahiri, mentions of Jacen/Tenel Ka, Jaina, Han, Leia, and Allana
Summary: Everyone's gotten older but no one's really grown up. Compromising positions are still hilarious - even Han thinks so.
Author's Notes: This is set fairly late in what I will henceforth be referring to as the Coma!AU. Turns out that Anakin not dying on Myrkr has a lot of positive affects on the GFFA.

Today, off the side of 288 and 380, I saw my first bluebonnets of the spring. They were on the curb with some little pink buttercups, and it was only a tiny patch of them, but they still made me smile.

And for anyone who cares, I so totally fail at this whole "Read more then just Star Wars books" thing, because today on the bus I finished Edge of Victory II: Rebirth, which I started yesterday morning after finishing Edge of Victory I: Conquest, which I had started the day before yesterday. Meanwhile Neuromancer, which I've been reading on and off for about two weeks, is still about 100 pages from being done. Why can I not get away from this obsession? And New Jedi Order, of all things? It hurt me, so badly. Why did I go crawling back to it?

Well, it might be because I'm trying to write fic that's heavy on the Anakin/Tahiri. I fear one day very soon I will have to make an innane post about the EUAU timeline I have going in my head, because it looks like there's going to be a lot of fic set there. All things in time.

Characters/Pairings: geezus I never thought I'd type this Jaina/Tenel Ka, mentions of Jaina/Zekk and Jacen/Tenel Ka
Summary: Jaina's a practical girl. She's also a little crazy insecure. Practice makes perfect.
Author's Notes: This idea came to me very late one night, and it wouldn't leave me alone and it just snow-balled and snow-balled until I couldn't ignore it any more. Please don't hate me. Or take this too seriously.

Finished Legacy of the Force: Invincible about ten minutes ago, and had myself a good cry over the ending. Now I need fanfic... Why is there no decent EU fanfic? I'd hate to have to write it myself...

Well, okay, no I wouldn't. And there are a few key things that I feel still need to be addressed. Perhaps I shall address them when my grief/elation ebbs a little and I can see the situation more clearly.
juxtaposie: (Solo Twins)
So I started book 8 of Legacy of the Force (don't fret, Rachel, I'm still reading Biff). Nine pages in, and already we have some interesting developments, but there was one that drew my attention above all the rest: Jaina Solo is going to ask Boba Fett to teach her how to hunt jedi.

Let me repeat that: Jaina SOLO is going to ask BOBA FETT (remember that bounty hunter with the jetpack? who gave Dad to Jabba? the Mando'a? who's tried more times than he has fingers on his hands to kill or maim some member of the Solo family?) to teach her how to hunt jedi.

Does that mean anything to anyone on my flist besides Amanda?
