Time and the Lack Thereof

I got back home from Jerusalem much later than I had planned because my parents had a cool houseguest. Consequently the morning was a lost cause but I dedicated much of the afternoon to sweeping and mopping the whole apartment. This is my least favorite house chore, both because it always leaves me tired, sweaty and gross-feeling, and because the apartment gets really nasty if I don't do it often enough. But I'm starting my first week at the new job with a clean floor and fresh linen, which seems auspicious.

Of course as a consequence of not waking up at my own place, and then later the mad rush of neatening and cleaning, I forgot to each a sensibly timed lunch. Now I'm going through a whole progress of figuring out what I can eat and where it can be acquired. I really wish I'd had the good sense to get more supplies for winter-style cooking. Not that I'd break open a bag of red lentils or pearl barley right now. But sooner or later I need to adjust to having foodable foods at home, and for the winter that's really the best stuff.

I wanted to do writing today but probably I will only do TV: How to Get Away with Murder, Haven, and probably/maybe The Flash.

Happy Yuletide, dear Writer!

I'm [personal profile] nikkiscarlet here on Dreamwidth, as well as on AO3, Livejournal, and Tumblr. Thank you for signing on to write a giftfic this year! I really appreciate that you'll be writing a fanfic for me, and I hope you enjoy writing it as much as I know I'll enjoy reading it. I've got a pretty long letter here for you because . . . I'm just really verbose, but please know that everything I say here has been written in hopes of helping you figure out what you want to write, and not for the sake of boxing you in or limiting your creativity! You can choose to disregard all of my suggestions if you already have something in mind: just knowing that there will be more fic for one of the fandoms we share is a wonderful thing!

Read the rest under the cut! )

This structure finishes up the "Folded Book" chapter of Making Handmade Books by Alisa Golden.

I may need to pick up some clearance decorative paper and make models that have more visual interest and that are a little less "proof of concept" with whatever I happen to have kicking around. On the plus side, I'm not stalling out because I don't have exactly what each project calls for, so yay, me!

Book Arts: Slot & Tab books

Last night I made models of both the "Slot & Tab Book" and the "Pocket Triangle & Diamond Book" from Making Handmade Books by Alisa Golden.

The success of these structures depends on paper choice: you need something sturdy enough to stand up to use/folding and flexible/resilient enough to spring back without creases after you fold/curl the sides of the paper to slip the "tab" pages through the "slot" pages. (And in the case of the Pocket Triangle variation, you need a paper that will both hold a crease and not crease too readily!)

One of the nice things about these projects is that they are not dependent on having the exact "right" sizes of paper as given in the book, provided your paper's proportions are basically the same. Also, while exact measurement gives cleaner results and is a good thing to practice, you don't have to be absolutely precise.

Burning Questions

Of course, the most burning questions on my end are 1) Is someone going to vid Zero Motivation? and 2) If so, are they going to do it to every song that came out in the nineties omgf adjsfldg.

I mean. Is it just me or is this a hugely nineties kids movie. I know it's not just me. Right? Right?

I'm sorry I'm not sorry but this movie does things to my brain. I mean. It's a movie about the army that's not only relevant to my experiences but aggressively so. I MEAN.

I cannot with this movie. I. can. not.
