Piling on the angst...

You know, it's one thing to pile problems on my characters in a story that's supposed to be somewhat humorous.

It's quite another to have a character whose (1) husband has died of cancer at a very early age (2) dog has been eaten by a praying mantis (3) job is about to be buggy-whipped. And here I sit, figuring out more ways to hurt her.

Sometimes I feel like a big ol' meanie. Yeah, I'm probably going to work on my "Dragon Cattle Barons in 1880 Texas" fic after this one. Because I need some funny.

In other news, IT'S SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!!! Not that we actually have a team to root for this year, but it's the Big Game and we will watch it and have Wif Burritos and Chocolate Chip Cappuchino Muffins and chips. Because that's how we roll.

In other other news, I'm still waiting to hear from a couple of markets that I subbed to back in November. And I should be hearing from the Aussie mag fairly soon? *crosses fingers*

SUPER BOWL!

Is it sad that I'm getting up during the actual game and getting snacks and making dinner and such, because I don't want to miss the commercials? Because honestly, I don't actually have a dog in this hunt, and I'm just enjoying it for the sake of my love of football itself and not because I'm invested in either team.

In other Super Bowl news, it's nice to watch a halftime show that's not cringe-worthy by dint of having 60-year-old men doing their "sexy dance" (Rolling Stones, I'm looking at you), or being in danger of having a "wardrobe malfunction" (yeah, right). Usually I get up and do stuff during the halftime show, but Tom Petty put on a classy, enjoyable show, and I thank him and the Heartbreakers for that. He also kept my butt in my seat, chair-dancing.

Well, that was a cool game.

For once, it wasn't boring, and it had a surprise ending, and it went all the way to the end. Also, the halftime show didn't suck like a Hoover. Woo!
