Stray thoughts:

  • I get my second dose of Pfizer tomorrow! I'm so excited!

  • Meg has been silent ALL WEEK on Instagram. I am soooo curious what's happening there but I refuse to message and ask. Tough love baby. I'm meeting Sarah Saturday after my shot to give her back this D&D die of hers I've had for a year now and I'm wondering what to say. I think I'm just going to be honest and say look, the group chat was bugging me, but it doesn't mean I don't want to be friends and I'm sorry if that's what my message sounded like.

  • Someone on Blogsnark asked for under-dress shorts and someone recommended Thigh Society. I don't think I've ever clicked Buy so fast. I got two pairs in beige in L/XL and I hope they fit. I've used cheap Amazon shorts for a few years now and they're really terrible. They always roll up and pill and I spend the whole day tugging them down. If these will just stay put I'll love them.

  • My healthy menu this week was really good! Right before my first dose 4 weeks ago I was weighing in at 191 and this week it's showing at 187 which is good. I want to keep up the momentum and not give up like I always do the first time I plateau. My first goal is to hit 180 which is what I was when I got engaged in 2017. I got down to I think 162 before the wedding and then just kept going up after.

  • A good buy lately: fluffy sherpa Minnetonka moccassins! I looove them.

fic: almost home, gojyo/hakkai

Title: Almost Home
Author: Ellyrianna
Fandom: Saiyuki
Pairing(s): Gojyo/Hakkai
Summary: Sanzo cracked one off about how pathetic it was to be so devoted to a person. “I’m not,” Gojyo almost shouted, but the lie was so bad that he didn’t make it past opening his mouth. Completely self-indulgent 58 hurt/comfort fluffiness; my annual "Gojyo/Hakkai lying in bed" fic, with added appendicitis.

fic: the rose captain, matthew/mary

Title: The Rose Captain
Author: Ellyrianna
Fandom: Downton Abbey
Pairing(s): Matthew/Mary
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Written for the Downton Abbey kink meme. ladycallie requested "something involving Mary being kidnapped, freeing herself (because she's badass), but then getting lost on the way back to Downton. Much swooning and being carried back by Matthew - WHO COULD TOTALLY BE ON HORSEBACK!.... and maybe there's snow?!" And, well -- yeah, that's what this is. I hope you enjoy it, ladycallie! I tried to put everything you wanted in there. (And sort of mixed it with the other thing you requested, abusive!Richard.)
