That Catchup Meme

So what have you been up to? / Major life changes? Same old same old?

Learning how to love exercising. Working on Zombies 5k. Have signed up for a 5k with my parents in November that I should be ready for, at least in terms of running the whole thing, though I'm sure my time will be terrible. I've reached the point in yoga where I can actually focus on my breath instead of just flailing about, which has made it a lot more awesome and relaxing.

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?

Eh? My fannish involvement is pretty minimal. I still read in Glee. I have a lot of How to Get Away with Murder Connor/Oliver feelings.

Where do you hang out online?

Here and Twitter mostly. I'm more active on Twitter, but I'm not particularly interesting there.

What are you reading?

The Dispossessed by LeGuin. I've never read it before, and I'm finding it an interesting counterpoint to Stranger in a Strange Land, which I read in high school and have never revisited. Hey, maybe cultural exchange is actually kind of difficult!

What are you watching?

Uh, lots of reality TV. I've been watching Project Runway with [personal profile] bironic, which has been a blast. This week was a lingerie challenge, which of course made everything ten times more disastrous than usual. American Ninja Warrior is strangely enthralling, and I like fast-forwarding through all the non-dance parts of So You Think You Can Dance.

What are you making?

Currently trying to finish off a Connor/Oliver timestamp. I'm just having trouble getting the mood the way I want to, and I have other things that are stealing my focus right now.

What are you squeeing about today?

Old District B13 fic! I want to make sure it gets nominated for Yuletide this year.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be...

This question is a little odd to me because I still kind of feel like I'm wandering around trying to find a fannish home to be invested in.

I should really watch/read/dive into _______ and then come talk to you about it!

You should play Shadowrun Dragonfall (which is currently on sale for < $5!) and then talk to me about writing AUs in its cyberpunk-fantasy setting. And maybe we could make it happen using the campaign editor that comes with the game.

What else is on your mind?

Parkour! I started taking classes, and they are both intense and awesome. I am usually sore for like the next three days, but it is great. I am loving the way it gives me something to focus on when I do my strength training. I'm training to make myself better at parkour. That's an excellent reason to do it.
