So, still enjoying Columbus Day weekend. I had my friend Cali over for a Kathleen Turner quadruple-feature on Saturday. It went a little bit awry, though, when I heard what sounded like a bird in distress out in my parking lot. Wasn't a bird, it was this guy:



My neighbor said that kittens have been popping up all over town, so I don't know if someone's been dumping them off or what. I immediately tried to give him to my friend, but her new apartment doesn't allow pets. And my boy begged and begged and begged some more. So...I guess we're keeping the little guy. He'll be going to the vet this week for a full check-up and shots.

Pending confirmation of gender, I'm pleased to introduce Barry Benjamin Bruno. ::grins:: Barry because he's fast, like the Flash, and Benjamin because my boy liked that name too and couldn't decide. (My suggestion of Bucky was summarily vetoed.) I didn't want another cat. I can't afford it, not really. But how can I say no to my boy or to that little furry face?

Not sure how old he is, but he's very, very small. Happy to report that's he's using the cat box, though, and eating very well. Now we'll see what the vet says.

In fic news, I have once again failed to meet a challenge deadline. I don't know what's with me with deadlines this year, but it's not been good. Sigh.

However, it's Monster Fest at [livejournal.com profile] ushobwri and that's sparked my muse like it always does. Without further ado...some fic!

I'm not gonna lie. I hate working. I get zero fulfillment from it. First job isn't too bad. I get to sit on my butt all day and hang out on the computer. It's a bit stressful at the moment because of copious staff changes making it hard to know who is handling what these days, and because we're frantically trying to get ready for the start of school.

Second job. That's the one I wish I could flip off and walk away from. It's been a rough month there because we had one girl go back to school and one of the managers was fired, so we're down bodies. I've been working an extra shift each week, on top of the full-time job I'm already working, and it's killing me. I hate going there every single day that I have to. ::whines::

So with all the work, I haven't been feeling overly productive with the writing as of late. My brain is just like...nope. I spent most of the weekend, when I wasn't working, bingeing old eps of JAG off my ex's Amazon account. Because that show makes me happy. And darn it, I want to be happy!

Okay, whininess over. Now on to fic, because I have been a little bit productive despite everything. So if you're interested, here are my latest fic offerings:

You know, it shouldn't be that hard to commit to a weekly post of fic links. Why can't I do it? ::shakes head::

So, I had to drop out of [livejournal.com profile] intoabar. I don't feel good about it, but the fic was...not my best effort. I'm not giving up on it, but I honestly don't know how to fix it at this point.

But I have bigger fish to fry. Namely finishing my [livejournal.com profile] sentinelbigbang. I've literally had forever to work on it, because of a lengthy extension on the original due date. But it seems that once again I'll be racing for the finish and hopefully skidding in just under the wire. I really need to stop signing up for challenges.

There's also a self-imposed deadline of tomorrow (which I will fail at meeting, just FYI) to finish a gift fic that I started for my friend's birthday last year. ::sighs::

Anyway, enough whining. Without further ado, I give you my latest batch of fic:
