brumeier: (Bucky Not Amused)
[personal profile] brumeier
Has anyone seen my muse? He's fucked off again and taken all my words with him. Please keep an eye out for him. This is what he looks like:


(Yes, that's Toni Collette from United States of Tara.)

Sometimes I wish I could trade Buck in for Bucky (see icon), because I feel like Bucky would be more ruthlessly efficient when it comes to managing the words. Buck just hides somewhere with his booze and his porn and leave me high and dry. Sigh. This is a real problem, since I have challenges I wanted to fill this month and I just can't get anything going.

In family news, my brother finally found a place to live. Whew! His application at my place was denied, which I don't understand because there have been some sketchy people living there and whatever his other faults may be my bro doesn't peddle drugs. But he's super excited about his new place, and showed me some pics when he came over yesterday to borrow my vacuum. (Guess who's getting a vacuum for a housewarming gift?) Hopefully Saturday we can crack open the storage unit and he can take out whatever furniture he wants, help me get the rest of my stuff out, and then it'll just be the ex's crap in there. Goals!

My son had a huge anxiety attack on Sunday night, so I suspect we've cycled back around to that again. Every few months he goes through a bad patch of nightmares, anxiety and paranoia. His counselor would like him to have a full psychological eval, so I'm trying to get that set up. What do you tell a thirteen year old who is crying his eyes out because he's scared of dying and scared there's no happy afterlife? I was really earning my salary on Mother's Day this year, I can tell you that.

Overall things are going well. I've had light schedules at my deli job the last two weeks, which has been super nice. And the weather has been so nice the last two days. Sunshine! I'd almost forgotten what it looked like.

And I do have some fic to share since my last update. If you're interested! ::grins::

Title: This Sucks (Not in the Good Way)

Title: Explosion of Flavor
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Challenge: McSheplets Prompt #253: Explode
Pairing: McShep
Characters: John, Rodney, Teyla, Ronon

Heh, when I saw that you posted something about "Buck" I thought this post was going to say you wrote fic about Buck Frobisher *points to icon* (not that I especially thought you would do that, but you know how my brain just goes due
South first thing).

Hugs for the hard things going on in your life and yays for the accomplishments.

And now you have me thinking I should write a cracky crossover Captain Canada with Buck "Bucky" Frobisher as the Winter Soldier .

Sorry your son is finding things so hard. I'd send hugs but I somehow doubt a thirteen year old boy would appreciate them, so I'll send them to you instead and let you channel them in an appropriate fashion.

I'm always appreciative of hugs, and will definitely pass them on. Thank you!

::hugs back::

*hugs* I'm sorry to hear about your son's anxiety attack - I hope the evaluation is not too difficult to set up. I'm glad things are generally going well and that your brother has found somewhere to live.

hope your muse returns soon or that someone tracks him down for you :)

::hugs back:: Thank you. The school is going to provide the eval, so I'm happy about that. Things are moving along.

And I managed to write a thing today, which makes me exceedingly happy. ::grins::

This is my husband's fear, too. He is not in the least soothed by the idea that, well, ok, IF there's no afterlife, you will no longer have any awareness so why does it matter? Because apparently I'm a coldly logical bitch. :-P But, anyway, if it makes your son feel at all better, let him know that a grown man shares his worries, and he's not alone. to both of you*

And yay to getting your brother out on his own again!

I need Bucky for my Muse.

I'm as coldly logical as you, because I said the same thing. LOL!

Bucky would be an excellent muse. Buck is just a pain in the rear. ::shakes head::
