Is it selfish of me to say that it's not as bad having writer's block when most the people I know are suffering the same condition at the time? I feel less like a loser when no one else is getting anything done either. >.>

I'm all twisted up in knots for Remix more than anything. Writing a story is one thing, rewriting another person's story is an entirely different sort of beast, and one that needs more careful handling. Especially trying to rewrite a story that still drop-kicks me across the room with how good it is after reading it, oh, ten times at least....

And that's being blocked on the stuff I have to do already, not to mention how much I want to grab a few prompts from the TrekNovelFest at DW. I want to write all of the Wounded Sky prompts I didn't make myself, and what a pain in the tuckus it is that Keenser's species never got named, sheesh, what's a good canon-following fangirl to do?

Anyway. Diversionary tactics of an amusing sort:

Star Trek Inspirational Posters (by Gary) It took me a while to work through all of them, but by the last gallery I felt both entertained and informed! For example, did you know that over half the Big Seven were on Twilight Zone? That Middle-Earth had starships? That you wouldn't like Scotty when he's angry? That Captain Kirk prefers to play as Yoshi during the weekly Mario Kart tournaments? That Data should not be allowed to upgrade his own GUI? OR MOST IMPORTANTLY, that Leonard Nimoy was absolutely nommable? Well, you probably did know that.

The world's most disturbing remote control: when not in use, it goes limp, "breathes", and glows; reach for it and it gets hard and stops glowing. Well. Now. That's a... yeah, that's *just* too late for Father's Day. Huh.

Centuries in the future, ceiling cat may not reach the stars.... but don't worry, ceiling Keenser is watching you. xD

This is the best prompt ever, and I am sad no one has filled it yet.
Someone on board of The Enterprise is *gasps* homophobic! Crew is sympathetic, because, come on, phobias are ridiculous but cute.
I want this particular phobia to be treated like any other, with different crew members being different spectrum of tolerance.:
- Big mean spider gay sat next to you in mess hall? AW. Poor you. *pats on the head*
- Come on, I bet he was more scared of you than you were of him!
- Phobias are illogical
- This is ridiculous! It's just a spider gay man! What's it he going to do to you, biterape you?

Bonus for a panicked middle night call to someone because there is a spider on a ceiling! are gay people living in the quarters next door! :O

Man, that video will never get old. George Takei is the man.

Another most excellent thread from the meme: it's Chekov/Sulu, except told in diary entries, captain's/doctor's/first officer's log entries, and miscellaneous sources. Apparently there are at least four anons who have been spinning this yarn out, and it is ~hilarious~!

Last commentfic for this post, I promise: Kirk finds a sehlat for his first officer. Which is worse: being mauled to death by a Vulcan teddy bear, or dying from allergies to one? xD

To end this entry: I believe I may be shifting my oral fixation back from Skittles to sunflower seeds. This is probably only going to be beneficial, as far as my teeth are concerned.

Tomorrow is predicted to hit 90 degrees with a fierce thunderstorm in the afternoon. I'd rather the temperature be a lie than the precipitation...

I have actually told my friends Vulcans are just Elves with no sense of humor. XD And how much does Takei rock for that? So fucking hard, amirite?
Ceiling!Keense has been my head canon for a while now, and so I'm really glad someone with talent drew it. And that prompt, deserves to be written by someone with more writing talent than me.

1) I can't sleep.
2) I'm commenting to you.
3) THIS killed me.
4) Freaky that both of us wrote about writer's block. (see my post) And no, I don't think you're selfish for thinking that way.
6) I need to switch my oral fixation from cigarettes to something, anything else.

So funny that we all seem to be having writer's block, think it's the heat? Also Guh on Nimoy! Everytime I think I have a handle on this crush I see or hear something even more drool worthy. The man is old enough to be my Grandpa but damn! *points to icon*

Remixing is so. freaking. hard. I'm so sorry I convinced everyone to sign up. Me = pied piper of fail.

I ended up scrapping my first remix idea and choosing an entirely different fic. I'm glad I did because it means I could finally get make some serious headway on it.

lxs on the other hand, oy!

That prompt made me lol at least 4 times, every mention of the spider gay man.


yes, sunflower seeds are better.

Hey remember when you did that tarot reading for me? I got a job, like right after that, in April, and I just got promoted after 2 months of being there! And I am able to walk to work! No bus for me!

Thanks for that helpful reading.
