To my Yuletide author

October 18th, 2013 (07:28 pm)

First off - thank you so much! :D

As far as my requests - I think I covered the fandom details in my AO3 request. In general, I'm a big fan of verisimilitude - getting the setting right, whatever it is, and the voices of the characters. If I had my druthers, I love slash and sex of all kinds and ratings, as long as it's authentic - that is, I'll take well-written vanilla or gen over hardcore slash you're really not into or know much of. :D I love vignettes, gapfillers, getting the bits of details, the moments between the moments we see...

Canon and character are the most important thing to me, however.

You can see my profile on AO3 (Roadstergal) if you are curious about the sorts of themes and rating that normally engage me.

For the first day of my sabbatical, Neal got us tickets to Outsidelands on Friday. :D

Epic trip 2012 - Key West and Bonaire diving

February 5th, 2013 (09:54 pm)

Ach, I have been remiss in posting pictures from our Epic Trip! We went to Bonaire in the Netherlands Antilles, via Key West, in order to check out what has been called the best SCUBA diving in the world.

This was not the best air travel in the world, however. When we arrived on Curacao from Key West, we found that the flight on DAE to Bonaire was cancelled.

After a few hours of waiting, we got seven of us loaded onto a little prop plane, finding places in the wings and behind the seats for our bags.

Cut for pics.Collapse )

North Bay on motos

July 2nd, 2012 (08:59 pm)

We have some days off, Neal has a VStrom, I have a Street Triple R, and NorCal has some nice roads. Sounds like a plan.

We packed up and installed loud horns on our bikes on Saturday, set the preload as well as we could with my too-stiff spring, and got a nice early start on Sunday. Oh, wait, we didn't - we watched World Superbike, then got a late start. I noted that the squared-off tire I had inherited on my Triple was close to the wear bars. Well, this trip would be a good way to kill it.

The Hawaii trip: Big Island

June 12th, 2012 (08:26 pm)

So - with Neal going to Hawaii every month for his job, it was time for me to take advantage of the off-season prices and go join him. This time, we decided to do the Big Island, and make it a SCUBA/Manta Ray/volcano epic trip. And so it was.

Many pics and writeup.Collapse )

More bicycling

December 27th, 2011 (04:54 pm)

All right, Garmin said it was 50 miles, and Strava said it was 40. Whatever it was, it sucked. 5600 feet of climbing, including Tunitas Creek, which is evil.

Because I like being sterotypical, sometimes.

At the bottom of Tunitas Creek.

After much suffering...

Rich Oliver's Mystery School and IMS race

December 5th, 2011 (09:37 pm)

My birthday present from my lovely husband was a trip to Rich Oliver's two-day Fun Camp. We have been intending to go for years, but could never justify the money - until he decided, you only live once, and gave me this awesome gift. So we packed up my gear and headed out on Friday evening to Auberrry, CA (a hop, skip, and a few jumps from Fresno).

It's actually quite a pretty drive.

Fun Camp and wet IMS race.Collapse )

Character meme from kahvi

November 30th, 2011 (07:09 pm)

1) Make a list of fourteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (That way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.)

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments.

For example:

'One, Nine, Fourteen and One are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from Four. Do they succeed?'
'Under what circumstances might Five and Seven fall in love?'
'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'
'What would Two experience in Silent Hill?'
'What Pokémon would Eight have?'
'Write a drabble in which Six and Nine FIGHT CRIME.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fourteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.
