1. Spent hours reading wikipedia's articles on Cockney rhyming slang, racial slurs, masturbation, and various Belle Époque lesbians and bisexual women, among many other random things on the internet.
2. Played Dominion (the card game).
3. Played in a Star Wars tabletop RPG.
4. Went to dinner with friends. Also lunch with friends. Also watched last week's Bones. And an episode of South Park. (Those go in the "social" category because it was with the housemates. Though so was Dominion.)
5. Betaed a couple of short, utterly delightful things. (Well, a little before the weekend. But close enough for government work. :))
6. Read and re-read (and re-read and re-read and re-read) a handful of Hockey RPF stories (Blackhawks, mostly). Will probably make a reclist soon (I just have to get off my ass and leave some comments -- I have been tragically bad about that recently). Wish there were more, but at least some of what exists is both satisfying and re-readable. Possibly too satisfying and re-readable, because I keep trying to stop (because hell, I have to work on Yuletide!), but I just can't seem to... I am kind of in love with Duncan Keith and Jonathan Toews, see, and am also fond of Brent Seabrook and Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp and basically all of the last few years of Blackhawks (some of them I don't know much about yet, but that doesn't stop me from being fond of them... I mean, have you seen a picture of Niklas Hjalmarsson? *fans self* Though I think I would choose Duncs over anyone else, even Tazer -- mostly I just want to feed Tazer a lot of cookies). I'm from Minnesota, okay, it's not my fault if some hindbrain part of me thinks that hockey is inherently hot (and oddly adorable).

I did actually work on Yuletide a little, mostly by reviewing some source material and taking copious (far, far too copious -- I still have SO MUCH source material to get through, ack) notes. I have a long way to go, though.

So far, I have found myself even more in love with the side characters than ever.

I ran across hockey RPF myself recently, via a rec for shoemaster's Seabs/Johnny Weir story (I think it's called 'Intimate Contact' or something similar). It was delightful, and I shall have to read more. But not until I finish my Yuletide story.

(which reminds me, want to beta? "No" is a perfectly acceptable answer, as you sound busy. :))

*grin* Yes, I recommend waiting until after you finish your Yuletide story. Or else you'll end up like me, with the characters haunting you -- I almost think it's worse because there aren't very many stories, so the re-reading just reinforces the desire for more, somehow. And I adore that story to pieces!

(Probably yes! May depend a bit on the fandom -- I'll email you! :))
