Argh. Very bored today. We're just finishing up Toby's episode of Exodus Earth. Poor Tobe doesn't feel good- I think he's got a cold. And Trev and I are just bored.

It's hubby's birthday, but that doesn't do much for us today, as he's stuck on a business trip. Lucky him. We celebrated his birthday with dinner for him and me, and then a few fun gifts. Toby gave him lightsaber chopsticks. He was delighted with himself. :) He also wrote "I love you Daddy" all by himself, which pleased him to no end.

We were going to have ham and mac n cheese tonight, but I think we're going to have a raid the freezer night instead- let Toby have whatever he'll eat, Trevor can have chicken nuggets and corn, and I'll have leftover baked potato soup. What an inspiring menu, huh? although I need to pick the tomatoes in my garden.

Been working on my big bang- almost done chapter 6 out of 10 (I think. We'll see). Yay! I really want to get up to chapter 8 done by the end of the weekend. Is there going to be a post telling us to send our roughs to the artists? I'm looking forward to seeing what my artist will come up with. I've checked out her page, and I really hope she's not too disappointed with my fic. She's a huge Whedon fan. My fic is a cross-over, but it's really the technology that crosses over. Adelle and Topher appear mainly in their business roles, and Victor and Sierra.... I'm afraid people are going to be disappointed with how little they're on the screen. I intended to have more going on with them, but there's so much going on already, and frankly, the story is how BSG would use the technology. Victor and Sierra don't really much matter, because the focus is on some of the ethical implications. Since Roslin is NOT making fancy prostitutes, the ethical implications here really are tough, and I'm really not convinced that she's 100% wrong in all cases. But really, the main characters are very, very much the BSG crew. I can't even pick out a main character this time, or a main pairing.

I'm definitely getting to the point where I want this fic done, though. I have a few other projects, but I really want to start devoting more time to Adamaey Rising. I've been doing research and outlining for it, and I'm excited about it, but I think I need to really pick it up. Also, there's the Never Spoken challenge, which will start in September, and the remixduello, which I'm really excited about.

Speaking of the Never Spoken challenge, is there anyone who would be up to making a banner for it? Nothing fancy, even, but my graphics are... erm, less-than-impressive :) (Although I still love my cookie banner.)

Okay. Pick tomatoes then make dinner. Yay, what an exciting night. What an exciting post :P

I could do the banner. I have something pretty simple in mind with Laura and Kendra on each side. Is the name of the challenge definitely "Never Spoken"?

ETA: How's this(I didn't add text because I'm usually bad at picking good text to match the pic)- http://pics.livejournal.com/geekbynight/pic/00hz6tza

Oh, I LOVE that!!!! Thanks!!!

Unless someone comes up with a better name, I think "Never Spoken" is going to be the winner. The other one I was thinking was "Behind the Scenes", but "Never Spoken" sums it up better.

Well, she wouldn't be there if she didn't like bsg, would she? Besides, huge Whedon fans tend to squee when Joss goes to the grocery store :D. I know I do :p.

Her stuff looks really gorgeous. Can't wait to see what she (and you) come up with for the big bang (but I think I've started to repeat myself there)!

This is true! :) One nice thing about the claiming process is that you know which artists are still into the challenge, and which ones signed up and aren't that into it.

I'm really excited to see everything that comes out of this challenge. I will click on every last piece of art, and last year I did try to read all the stories. I didn't succeed- there were too many that just weren't my interest- but I did try, and a read at least one fic I might not have read otherwise. (There are two left I still want to actually read.) I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

I know what you mean on wanting a fic done. I really want "Sanctuary" done, because other bunnies keep ganging up on me and trying to drag me away from it now that I'm reasonably close to finished. This happens to me a lot near the end of longer projects. Why do bunnies do that? It's like fics don't want to be finished sometimes, and they get their buddies to cause interruptions to delay the inevitable.
