Ban On Movies Involving Singing Hookers.  
I know you are all looking at my subject line and thinking, a) “What douchehole congressman put that bill up?” and b) “But I want to watch movies with singing hookers!”.

Rest assured, it was only the really old TV set-up at the cabin I was at this weekend that wouldn’t let me watch singing hookers. To be precise, Moulin Rouge. Also, we could not watch the scary movie we brought, Woman In Black, because it too was rated ‘R’ and we did not know the code number for the parental control units. However, it had no problem letting us watch The Walking Dead which makes literally no sense but whatever, we did a rewatch of the whole first season which was awesome.

The cabin was actually the perfect size for three people and had a small yard and then a dock that looked out across the lake, where the sun was shining all pretty. It looked quite similar to the picture in my icon actually, including having chairs just like that only in red. On Saturday I got up and wrote roughly 1,200 words, handwritten in a notebook all old-school. I was going to work on something I started last week but I ended up writing 1,200 words of little Sam and Dean getting to spend a summer at a cabin in Northern Michigan, one that was obviously inspired by the cabin I was staying in.


Of course, after I described the cabin and got the boys all excited to be there, I realized it had no plot. I wonder how it would go over to just have little snippet pieces of stories that happen to them over the summer. Make it a ‘verse, instead of one big piece. Maybe give them some cute girls in the cabin next to them, maybe have Bobby come spend a week with them and do a little piece on his friendship with John. I did have one idea I liked where Sam just starts making up stories about what their life is like, telling people things like his dad is a teacher, or they live in a blue house with white shutters and he takes karate and they had a dog named Harry once, and just random things like that because it would show a little of Sam’s thoughts on their life, even at an early age. I don’t know how much a ’verse would work though, if nothing really happens to them, if the idea is that it is just a good summer.

After writing, I read the rest of my Meet the Stars of Buffy book - did you know that the necklace Angel wears all the time is actually David’s and was a present from his wife? I sat outside to read and ended up getting quite a nice burn. It has now reached the stage where the burn itches like crazy. I am sure it will start peeling tomorrow or Friday. I went back inside and played some video games and when the sun started to set, I went and sat with my headphones in a lawn chair and just watched the sunlight dance across the water. The BFF cooked on the grill for us twice, making yummy hot dogs and burgers, and then yummy BLTs on Saturday night. We spent the rest of the time watching The Walking Dead and I ended up having kind of freaky zombie dreams all night, some of which were about a world where Zombie was just a virus people got, like the flu, and nobody seemed to think much of it. I was working at my old daycare and they all seemed more concerned about a chickenpox outbreak.

It was really lovely there and The BFF even brought her dog and he was so well-behaved and thinks he is my new best friend. The BFF can’t have me anymore, I belong to her pup now. My sister wants to get a bigger place next year and go for a whole week. That would be nice. The BFF took pics, so I’ll see about getting some off her sometime soon.

What a fantastic weekend! Oh, hey, did you see the Zombies in New York video? I'm pretty sure it's an AMC gimmick (that final zombie will sell you on my theory I am sure), but it was hilarious. I'll see if I can find the link again.

Also, I would totally read a Supernatural Snippets of Summer 'Verse from you. But you already knew that.

There has been no writing here for over two weeks. Boo!

It was a really good weekend. Just the nice relaxing thing we all needed.

Omg, that Zombie vid! Awesome. The guy at the hot dog stand! I loved the screaming woman who likes jumps and then runs away. lol And oh yeah that was a jab at DirectTV so it was definitely an AMC gimmick. They did something like this once before the show had started up - my sister has a friend in NY who told her, "I swear I saw a zombie on the subway today."

Cuz you'll read anything I write? Awwwww. :) I am just not sure what to do with the story now. It is 1,200 words of Dean checking out the cabin and the lake. The only thing I could think was that it wasn't a full story, that it felt like the set-up for something bigger. But then I realized I had no idea what exactly.

Oh no. /pats your back/ You know it is just stress about knowing you had to go back to work - you had such a bad couple of semesters last year, the dread of returning must be sucking you dry. It'll come back, I have faith. You just need to get settled back into a school year routine. Here's hoping it doesn't take too long to get your juices flowing.

(How perverted am I that I giggled at the phrases 'sucked you dry' and 'get your juices flowing'? /headdesk/)

GIVE ME DEAN WRITING PUCK BEING AWESOME. And also a dick. As Puck sometimes does. As well as Dean. Actually, I bet Dean's REAL favorite character is Brittany. Because she's hot and superficially dumb and very wise underneath. Like him. Especially after the double Brittany episode.

I said it a second ago, I'll say it again. "GIVE ME ALL OF YOUR PUCKING!" See? SO much dirtier than stuff with sucking and juices.

Although, I did get three lovely prompts from three f-listers last week, which turned into fun drabbles. One has TMNT in it. You should go straight to my journal and read them there, because I bet they are totally buried on your list. *pokes you* g'wan, you know you want to!

I saw the TMNT/Sex in the City thing and I thought I should go to sleep because I was seeing things. That was real then? Huh.

Mostly I was just like, "The Black Donnellys mother-fucker!!" I like, okay, I jumped out of my chair when I saw that. Like my brain forgot that it is physically a bad idea for me to jump out of my chair like I just got electro-shocked but baby, oh oh ohohohoh - that fucking show owned me! I miss those boys like burning. Man, if that show had stayed on the air, with all the incestuous yummy boys, there would be such a killer fandom for that shit.

LOL yeah, real. Shocked me, too.

DO NOT HURT YOURSELF LIKE THAT! And I should say, it's not about the boys. I had too many ideas all at once, so I picked a couple of less-shown characters instead for my first attempt.

I have ONE episode left to watch.

I hope you feel better by now; fic should never bring physical pain.

Naw, don't worry, I didn't get hurt - no fangirls were harmed in the reading of your fic. ;)

This has made me think a lot about The Black Donnellys and how many fic ideas I had for them back in the day. I watched it during a period of time where I was quite sick (or stoned, I can't be sure since it all blends together in my head). My much younger boy cousin turned me onto it - that kid has an uncanny ability to make me watch things that hit all my buttons, don't know how he does it. And I remember I wasn't writing at all at the time but I would lay there after an episode with all these ideas swirling around in my head, I just wanted to write so bad but I just couldn't get anything coherent to come out. Maybe I should try again. Maybe I should start by seeing if I can get the show on dvd, cheap.

If you ever decide to write those, I will SO read them. And also point other TBD fans to them.

I would read little snippets of a summer. I adore fics that are moments even if there's not a lot of plot. My chess fic didn't have that much plot.

The place sounds great, I'm glad its being a wonderful break.

Your icon is perfectly appropriate for this post. :)

Thank you. I actually thought about your chess fic when I was wondering what to do with this story! I thought about how much I enjoyed that fic and how I should take an example from you on that. Sometimes the introspective of something is enough of a plot.

It really was wonderful and such a cute little cabin we were at too. <3

That sounds like an amazing weekend and, except for the burn and zombie dreams, very relaxing.

I get used to the zombies dream, after awhile. I did have a dream with Christian Kane that weeknd as well, so there was that. (Zombies and Christian Kane...my most frequently dreamed about subjects).

The burn never peeled. In fact, it turned into a tan and I can still see the lines on my legs and arms from it, a month later. I should learn the term 'sunscreen'.

It was an amazing weekend indeed. I keep meaning to put up some picures of the lake and then other stuff happens and I forget! I'll try to do that this week.
