= While technically the building I work in is now open, it has no heat, so we're working remotely today. Which has its upsides: can sleep later because there's no commute, can work in pajamas, can have tv on or check tumblr during the work day etc. But ugh, I spent the first 90 minutes of my "work day" attempting to get Citrix to work and when I finally did (thanks to the IT guys who responded quickly to my emails), I still didn't have access to the thing I needed access to, so I had to do it all via Office365 anyway, and even that only worked halfway. Ugh. Technology. But I responded to all my email and scheduled a whole bunch of meetings, so now it's just having my email open and waiting to be pinged, since I can't do any of the other things I do from home.
= I posted a story yesterday:it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive
Captain America; Steve/Bucky; adult; 2,005 wordsSteve wants to make sure Bucky knows how he feels about him, especially after all those years they kept silent, and then all those years they'd lost.
The other day, "Badlands" came on and it's one of my favorite songs, and I was like, "There must be a Steve/Bucky story titled 'It ain't no sin to be glad you're alive'" but Google did not turn one up, so I said to angelgazing
, don't you think that should be the title of a Steve/Bucky story? and she said, "Yes, now write it." And here we are. *hands*
And I posted it just in time for:
= THE CIVIL WAR TRAILER
. And then MCU fandom collectively had a meltdown. (It was kind of hilarious to see the abrupt switch from All Star Wars to All Civil War on my dash.)
GIVE IT TO ME. I NEED IT IN MY EYEBALLS RIGHT NOW.( brief but spoilery squee/speculation )
IS IT MAY YET?
HOW ABOUT NOW?
= That was basically the only worthwhile Super Bowl commercial! What the hell was that last night? I understand big names like Anthony Hopkins and Liam Neeson wanting some of that sweet Super Bowl ad cash, but aside from the wiener dogs and Helen Mirren, everything was terrible! (I didn't see the sheep who sang Queen - I was in the kitchen making lunch for the week at the time.)
Wasn't it bad enough they subjected me to Coldplay at halftime? Thank god for Bruno Mars and Queen Beyonce, because otherwise that was pretty awful. Gaga did good with the anthem, though.
= In other news, I possibly maybe impulse ordered this Darth Vader inspired jacket
yesterday. It comes in my size! It's on sale! Shipping was cheap! I blame bedlamsbard
for reblogging it. I am just saying. I can't be held responsible.
= I didn't really eat breakfast since I was wrestling with technology so if it hasn't started snowing yet, maybe I'll go get a couple slices for lunch. eta
: it's already snowing, so I guess it's frozen mozzarella sticks instead!
