Apathy and procrastination are my newest addictions
Yeesh. Nearly two months since I've posted anything. What a fun time that's been!

I signed up for ae_match, with oodles of enthusiasm and ideas for fic. I wrote the first chapter of an Inception/Harry Potter crossover (Eames is a Malfoy squib, dontcha know!), building on art by the amazing pearljamz, and then... came down with a month long bout of bronchitis that had me coughing up enough green goo to provide special effects for a remake of the Exorcist. Bleh.

Once I could breathe again, I mostly slept for two weeks, told everyone I was feeling much better and started work on chapter two... and then the bronchitis boomeranged back and wiped me out for a second time.

I still feel like I want to sleep for a month and eat nothing but Tesco Midget Gems - they were all that kept me going through both bouts, odd but true. I was constantly ravenous but too wiped to crawl to the kitchen. Mommie Dearest was delivering them in bulk.

Now, every time I think 'I'll write something!' or 'Oh, dear gods, I have so many emails to wade through in my inbox, I'd better get started on that right now...', I somehow end up at neopets (I KNOW!), or playing just one last game of freecell, or urgently needing to watch this movie or the entire season x of y show.

I want to write! I just...

I started this post two hours ago, got the title in place, and realised I hadn't opened tweetdeck in forever. 106 tweets later (and a dozen linked in webpages and images and hey, while I'm on channel 4's news website, I'll just see what's been happening in the world...) I actually started to type.

ae_match is officially over, but there's a grace period until the end of September and the fic is sitting in my brain waiting to come out (and the one where Arthur is the baby of a crime family full of much larger brothers, and the one where he and Eames (are) own(ed by) a Maine Coon called Mr Charles who hates Cobb), but... words fail me.

So, how you all doin'? :D

So sorry you've been under the weather. If you haven't completely shaken the bugs hopefully an alocholic Horbling will help!

Good luck with getting the writing mojo started again..

and the one where he and Eames (are) own(ed by) a Maine Coon called Mr Charles who hates Cobb)

LOLz I'd read that for sure *G*

Alcoholic Horbling helps every ailment! I cannot wait!

Thank you. :D Mr Charles was the first idea I had for the match, he even has a backstory, of sorts. If someone would just hurry up and invent telepathic computers so I can think all these stories onto the screen, it would be so much easier. :P

I have been folowing your adventures in jobhunting and houseclearing and adventuring in Wales, just not commenting - words and the not having of thing. *siiiiigh*

Job vibes and life vibes and DAMMIT, I will send you my tv lists, if you're still interested. I finally got everything transferred to external drives (doubled up in all cases, mostly due to reading the woes of your lost, dead boys.)

*twirls slowly*

Sorry you've been so sick. Yuck. Green gunge from the lungs. Had a much smaller bout of that and wasn't pretty. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Thank you. Health-wise, I seem to be back on track, but I think I must still have green goo between my ears, gumming up the works. *g*

I'm sorry you've been sick too. Yay for being better! :D

Poor you!! Sucks to be that ill.
*pet pet pet*

I know the feeling, though - i have so much fic i want to write and...nothing! Sad.

I do hope you continue the HP/I xover, though - too awesome!

Oh man, *hugs*. Sometimes life just does that to you. I hope you're feeling back to yourself soon. It's never fun getting over stuff like that. It just wipes you out. I know what you mean with writing. I got wiped out several months ago with a change in health. It's tough to get back into things.

Don't rush yourself.

I'm so sorry you've been ill, but I'm glad to hear you are feeling (physically) better. Midget gems are a vastly under-appreciated medicinal compound.

playing just one last game of freecell
Oh man, I know. I spend far too much of my time doing that. I am both irritated and relieved that the computers at work have had the games removed - irritated every lunchtime, that I can't play. Relieved every lunchtime that I can't waste my break playing *g*

Take care of yourself. *hugs*

Sorry you've been so crappy! Hope you are over the worst now.

Sorry you've been sick, I hope that you're better.

Also, I would love to read your Mafia!Arthur story.
