The books I've been reading recently (A Thousand Splendid Suns and The Handmaid's Tale) have really been sticking with me. I've started googling a little, and it's been interesting. For one, I've come across some very harsh reviews of both The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. And for two, I've come across the fact that The Handmaid's Tale was made into a movie. Anyone see it? Is it any good? I think I'm going to have to see if I can rent that one.

More on A Thousand Splendid Suns, critical reaction, and my own writing. )

In a totally unrelated bit, I had Toby's parent-teacher conference yesterday )


This concludes today's babblings. I need to get the kids up, make chocolate play-dough for a playdate, check and see if I need to grocery shop at all today (Toby has to take snack for preschool tomorrow and wants to take chocolate chip cookie bars, and we have Fellowship supper for which I'm taking soda bread), and get ready for the said playdate. Plus, I've been trying to get Not Where I Belong going, and it's hard this time, because there is much discussion of feelings that has to be just right.

Oh, and before people ask- for chocolate playdough- melt 12 oz of semisweet chocolate chips and stir in 1/3 cup corn syrup. Refrigerate/let sit. It doesn't taste great (at least, not to me), but it really feels like playdough and Toby liked the taste.

My weekend off is definitely over!

Title: The Struggles Make You Stronger (Part 1)
Rating: PG-13
Chapter Summary: A diagnosis is usually a bad thing. For Louis Hoshi, it was worse than he ever would have imagined.
Author's Note: I've always meant to write Hoshi's backstory from A Lot to Live Up To. [livejournal.com profile] tin_o_biscuits wanted distraction, so I figured I'd post part 1 tonight. This will be updated irregularly, I'm afraid, although maybe once I finish with Not Where I Belong it will take over a Friday slot. If you have not read A Lot to Live Up To, it's plenty easy to follow this, but it's HUGE spoilers for A Lot to Live Up To, which is Dee-centric and follows but expands on canon. If there are BSG spoilers, they go up to the Pegasus arc.

Louis stared out the window, watching the world go by in all its glory and color. )
