You know what really grinds my gears?  
1) I'M SICK. Wah. Chest colds for the lose. I managed to trudge through the last 3 days of work until WEEKEND, though, YAY.

2) My dog is being OBNOXIOUSLY NEEDY today. I need to teach her the "Get On Out Of My Grill!" command, because my previously-taught "Bugger Off!" command is failing me today. YES, IT'S CUTE, but get your tongue off my keyboard and keep your elbows outta my face when I'm trying to NAP.

3) This shoestring budget thing is not working for me. Our 99 cent dish soap smells lovely but does not cut grease! I have EXPENSIVE TASTE in dish soap, people! And WE HAVE NO SPONGES, and man cannot live on paper towels alone! ALSO: we have zero food. We don't even have cereal, which is normally my fallback food when other foods are not available. I have a bag full of dry split peas, which isn't exactly ready-to-eat. I have quarters saved up for laundry, but I think I will need to go buy grape-nuts and wash my clothes in the tub. (I'm not so into having to pay for laundry again, EITHER, while I'm being an elitist snob.) (I should note that I'm a Cancer, so I probably have money hidden in a sock somewhere. All is not lost. I will be looking for that presently.)


5) I wish my house was cleaned and put away. We don't have space for all our stuff in our new place! And Sister is in Seattle for the second weekend in a row (with bags of cleaning supplies in her car), which isn't helping, but I suppose I should get used to it since she'll probably be moving there fairly soon and then froggoddess and I can share lonely sisterless WOE.

I do not enjoy hating everything. Cheer me up plz!

Awww! *snuggles* If I had a webcam, I would totally put on a puppet show for you so you could feel like you're watching TV! But sadly, I don't. It's the thought that counts, though, right? :D

random comment fic

John sat numbly for he didn't know how long as Rodney promptly forgot he was there and went back to the repairs. He and Radek were doing that thing where they spoke in pieces of sentences and short hand gestures that seemed to make perfect sense to them.

Realizing he'd been sitting still John got up and swayed a little. He should do... something. He started shuffling across the control room even as his exhausted mind tried to remember what it was he had to do next. He couldn't come up with anything. He just had to keep going.

He really wanted to sleep, but for some reason he felt like he couldn't stop moving.

Except he could. The city was safe, the immediate danger was over, Rodney was working on fixing everything. John could sleep now.

But his body moved insistently like it just didn't believe his brain. If he settled down something else would go wrong.

He ambled out onto the balcony, not really thinking about what he was going to accomplish there, and found Elizabeth slumped like a rag doll against the wall. He hesitated for a second, knowing if he sat down next to her he might not have the energy to get up again, but she yawned and it looked ridiculously cute – which was not a word he associated with Elizabeth under most circumstances – and he slid down alongside her.

"Thought you'd gone to bed," he mumbled.

"Can't," she said with a shake of her head. "Too tired to sleep."

"But you're not in your office." Elizabeth worked in her office, and usually if she wasn't sleeping she was working, but she wasn't working because she was out here on the balcony.

Distantly John recognized that his cognitive functions were starting to erode.

"No," she agreed calmly. "Too tired to work either."

He nodded. He knew how she felt.

Elizabeth rolled her head to look at him. "Rodney is-?"

"Yeah," he cut her off before she had to finish the question.

"Okay." She yawned again.

John settled himself more comfortably and looked at her. There were dark smudges under her eyes and her hair was limp and matted from dirt, which was also covering her clothes and her pale skin. There were bruises on her face and probably elsewhere that he couldn't see right now, and bloodstains on her arm and legs, some of it hers and some not.

He licked his lips. "Hey."

She turned towards him again and John leaned in and kissed her. It seemed like the best idea he'd ever had, although he knew there was some reason why he hadn't done it before. He just couldn't remember what it was.

Her lips were chapped and she tasted like copper metal from blood and also like something else he couldn't identify. He hadn't even planned on his tongue getting involved, but her lips had opened against his and it felt freakishly normal and right to deepen the kiss, to slide his fingers through her dirty hair and tilt her face to a better angle to taste her thoroughly.

Under any other circumstances, the tiny noise she made would've sent his nervous system into overdrive. His wrung out body couldn't manage much more than a twitch and an answering little moan of his own as Elizabeth kissed him back.

That finally penetrated the fog of his exhaustion. Elizabeth was kissing him back. He gasped a little against her lips as he realized what it was they were doing.

When she pulled away and they both started to gulp down air, he felt her palm pressed against his chest, above the top of his vest, her fingers alongside the pulse of his neck. For a minute John thought he might pass out, from tiredness or lack of oxygen or Elizabeth he didn't know.

He yawned instead, Elizabeth following suit. John's arms were still around her and his eyes were closing against his will as his body gave up the fight to stay conscious. He dragged Elizabeth closer, barely awake enough to register that she cuddled against his body as he fell asleep sitting there on the ground.

Re: random comment fic

Miera, I LOVE you! There's Sparky and tiredness and post-craziness, and people are kind of bleeding and kind of MAKING OUT, and it's just the greatest thing ever. How can you be so awesome at the drop of a hat, I ask?

OMG, they are making out from delirium! I LOVE IT.

Re: random comment fic
The really interesting part would be what happens when they wake up snuggled together on the balcony and go "Were we making out before?" *g*

Lot's of huggles. I don't have talent to write fics or witty comments, so hugs is all I can offer.

Chest colds are made of suuuuuuck. I have one now. Thank God codeine turns out to eliminate the side effects of my asthma rescue med, or I'd be a sleep-deprived zombie by now between that and the hardly being able to lie down without coughing up a lung.
Little Red: sga - cute when sick - duckadorkmylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2008 06:37 pm (UTC)
YES, OMG. I'm going to have to start setting my alarm for middle-of-night asthma-med infusions, because I seriously hate waking up all "*GASP!*" when my meds have already run out. GRRR! *tries not to cough on things*

Oh my god, that is FABULOUS. That is the best thing Youtube has done for me since the Spanish Love Song thing. I LOVE EET.

*clings to you in anticipation of future WOE!!*

You have teh intarweb, yes? My latest favorite guilty pleasure is watching television over the internet. There are so many shows!! Including one over on the CW called FARMER WANTS A WIFE. Seriously!! :)

Little Red: cupid - claire/alex too cool - meegzi31mylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2008 06:39 pm (UTC)
OMG, is that show as terribly wonderful as it sounds??? I saw previes for it when I was watching the addictively awful Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious at our old apartment, and I thought that, damn, this looked like fabulousness worthy of the Fox Reality Channel.

Hey Red,
I'm not sure if you're aware of it, if your computer will handle it or if you have enough bandwidth to enjoy it, BUT! Check out hulu.com, it's commerical driven free TV and movies. It's pretty cool, I think. Yup yup.
