things that are awesome:  
1) princess_philo posted this ridiculously awesome cabled knit handbag pattern that I plan to rip off, like, as soon as I can get myself to a craft store and buy some handles. So kewt!!

2) A little gold link chain fell off one of our display easels and I have been playing with it nonstop for two days, and it is still amusing me. Eventually it will become a handle for a fancy dress handbag, I think, but for now, I am a science experiment to one of my coworkers, who has no idea how a child, let alone an adult, could be amused by a bit of metal string for hours on end.

3) JAKE 2.0. OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! I love this show so hard! Jake/Diane/nanites OTP FOREVAR!!! :) *deep breath* I squeed myself into asphyxia last night over the Jake 2.0 minimarathon on scifi, I swear. That episode with the friend's wedding in Seattle? Has 'shippiness that rivals Lois & Clark, I swear. FANDOM MUST NOW COMMENCE.

Things that are not awesome, FYI: Scary realtors calling and freaking out at me over the phone. WTF, people, with your entitlement issues. *freaks out with fear* I am sending whammy vibes at this woman that she decides not to bring her clients by later as threatened.

I completely must have one of those knit handbags for my very very own.

I know! Aren't they completely superior?? Are you going to make one? :)

I can't knit! :( One day I shall learn, though. One day! *shakes fist at sky*

3. I missed most of the minimarathon last night, but I caught that episode, and it filled me qith SQUEEEE. I loved the handholding after the near-death experience. It was the handholding that got me. *nods*

The handholding slipped by me, I think. I was too busy still squeeeing from him TEASING HER that he doesn't remember her. OMG THE CUTE. I am off in search of fanfic, methinks.

You missed the handholding? Well, I hate to say it, but I think that means you have to watch it again. Sorry, I know that's a torture. ;-)

If you find any good fanfic, make with the recs, lady!

SUCH TORTURE! :-P You mean when he's dead and Diane holds his hand and is dying of sad? TOTALLY, OMG. *squeees self to death*

*deep breath*

I have fik recs! Go here. Read things by Tara O'Shea. Feel the joy, baby. :)

The dying of sad part was good, but the continued handholding and hugging with relief when he woke up was my favorite part!

Ooooh! More episodes tonight! Thank you for the recs - I will go squeee accordingly.

Oh, crap, I won't get to watch. Hrm. Sister's friend is coming to visit for the weekend to surf our couch and is arriving tonight. Oh well, more to look forward to in the futuuuuure!

And eeee, now I must needs watch that again and pay special attention. The hugging afterwards was THE BESTEST EVER. Ever!

yay! you love me!

OMG I love you like CRAZY! OMG. You are, liek, the bestest Jake writer evarrr, and I didn't comment to you directly only because I rarely do with fanfic that old, because email addresses change, etc, so YAY!! You have found me and now I can fling flowers at your feet in an appropriately embarassing way.

Seriously, I am in such awe of your Jake 2.0 fic, because you nail the voices so well, and that's not easy to do in a show as snarky as this one! It's like getting freebie episodes after the show was cancelled. :)

Thanks so much!

you made me night. seriously. I miss the show like crazy, and I have a stack of WIPs, but I haven't really been able to get back in the right place for writing. But I'm so glad you liked them! You should check out roseveare's Jakefic because she's still full of love and churning out excellent stuff.
