I'm heading down Dixie-way (if Florida counts, which it doesn't). A friend's kid is being baptized and as I am officially the godmother I should probably turn up.

Just when did I become such an adult? I cannot adult and the thought that, even theoretically, I could be tasked with this kid's wellbeing is... heady, heady stuff. Also, foolhardy. But I can wear a nice dress and turn up with a decent bottle of wine, at least.

By way of starting your weekend off right, this photo is making its way around Tumblr. No idea if it's genuine, but it made me laugh.


ETA: Didn't realize how small the text would be. If you click the "Source" link above and then click on the photo you can zoom in a bit so it's more legible.

Also #1: (BBC) Sherlock fans, if you want a good laugh, you really must check out The Adoption of John Watson by cyerus. In which Mummy Holmes adopts John Watson without consulting him first, Mycroft is offensively Mycroftian, John is less than impressed by both of them, and the sibling and family dynamics are so wonderfully in-character it hurts. Well, pre-series three in-character, with a much more public school Holmes family than we got in the actual show, but that actually was just as I imagined them, so...

Also #2: Fellow Tolkien fans, I've felt like I've not been including you all, but I did want to point to this lovely fan-art built around the Oath of Feanor. I've actually been sharing a good bit of Tolkien-themed fanart, research posts, and quotes and what-not over at Tumblr, which you can find here if you're interested. Also-also, don't forget that lotr_community released their essay challenge entries, and some of them look like a good read.

Right, so I don't got time for a fast train. See you guys beginning of next week.

And we just got HOME from Florida! (What part are you heading to? We were in the panhandle.)

Thanks so much for the signal boost! I still did not get my non-fic completed--it's not an essay, and needed more time than I thought it would!

Have a good and safe journey!

For me it's Clearwater (flying into St. Petersburg), and tomorrow S. And I are going into Epcot. She's the mother of small children within easy access of Orlando.) Then if the beautiful weather holds we'll go to the beach and then of course the service and dinner on Sunday night, and then back to the dreariness called reality. :-) But it's the first proper vacation I've had in a while. I just hope the stress to have fun doesn't get to be too much. There's not a lot of time which means we'll probably be cramming a lot in.

But yeah, there's some good stuff planned.
