radiumgirl: (holly and cat)
 I'm still on the fence about how I feel about last night's SPN ep, although I  made dolphin noises at the TV every time there was a subliminal Titanic detail thrown across the screen, like the E.J. Smith travel agency and the clock, the CLOCK showing the time the Titanic struck the iceberg.

I was a big Titanic geek in my childhood, okay?

I said this to Katrina as we were watching Show last night when she demanded to know why I knew all of the things.

"And it had nothing to do with the movie. This was before the movie even came out."

"So, what you're saying is that you geeked out about the Titanic before it was cool to geek out about the Titanic?"

"Yes, ma'am."

"So. You were like, a Titanic Hipster when you were ten years old?"

"If it makes you feel any better, I had like, no friends, because dragging a tome like Titanic: An Illustrated History out to the playground at recess tends to peg you as a freak."

"Good. I'm glad."

Right. Okay. So. The rest of this post pertains to boring RL. Apologies.

Lucy the Staypuft Marshmallow Car is at the body shop awaiting parts for repair. I've renamed him the Danger Magnet for the time being. Psycho!Bambi did about $3500 in damage: new fender, new hood, new front drivers side door, plus painting. Fuck you, Psycho!Bambi.

I'm slated to have the Danger Magnet back on the 26th. In the meantime, I borrowed Katrina's car, "The Tick", and on Monday, her mom is letting me borrow her Jeep, which Katrina and I named "The Divorce Settlement, Part 1."

We like to name cars, okay? Chrissy drives "Echo the Dolphin Car" because it's little and silver and the satellite radio antenna looks like a fin. My car before Lucy was named "Cthulhu" because...well it was a small Honda of questionable road-worthiness and I wanted to let it know that I still thought of it as a badass. Owen drives a blue Honda Fit that we call "The Mighty Bubble."

My brother refuses to let us name his car because, "You guys come up with stupid-ass names."

Whatever. Ass.

I completely rewrote the beginning of "Leap Year" while at work this week and mapped out the remainder of the storyline. It has gone off in a completely unintended direction, but I really really like it, and Case and Gertie are still totally Case and Gertie. I want to finish the rough draft by tomorrow night so I can spend the next two weeks revising. There's a deadline for a themed lit mag on the 30th that I think this new incarnation of "Leap Year" (currently renamed "With Honors") will be perfect for.

I'll post some crap as it comes together.

Chao, kids.
