here I am, the center of all beauty!

[Today's subject line is from Frank O'Hara's "Autobiographia Literaria." His Selected Poems accompanied me to New Orleans.]

There is an avocado lost somewhere in my car, unless it never made it into the shopping bag to begin with. My lungs are still trying to turn themselves inside out, which has precluded attending birthday parties, dances, and the like. There are all sorts of goings-on going on, some which I've managed to tweet about.

I had an inkling that January was going to be un-fun health-wise on New Year's Day, when I needed a four-hour nap before I got myself and Louise to the lake. But we did get there:

New Year's Day paddle

Last month's audition was successful, so I'll get to sing Monteverdi this July. Tomorrow's anthems include Rollo Dilworth's setting of some lines from Langston Hughes's "Freedom's Plow," and the discussion at Wednesday's rehearsal about the lyrics was intense. (And, you need chops to nail the harmonies, which makes me happy, even though I'll be sucking down honey before, after, and likely during the service to suppress the infernal coughing.) We also sight-read a new arrangement of "Drive the Cold Winter Away" commissioned for us. (If you had told ten-year-old me that she would get to sing in the very first performances of so many songs, she would have been beside herself with joy. Twenty-year-old me was frustrated about repeatedly failing to make the cut for elite ensembles. Middle-aged me recognizes that I hadn't and haven't put in the time to become the singer twenty-year-old me thought she was, and I'm largely OK with that: I do what I can with the time I feel I can spare. Which applies to nearly every other category of my life, for that matter.

Speaking of music, this video of Live from Here's Kansas City show includes Gaby Moreno singing/rapping lead on "Dance or Die" and Chris Thile breaking down "I Say a Little Prayer." Good stuff.

I burned my left thumb cooking some sad carrots tonight, but ice has minimized the damage, and the carrots (and crispy tofu, and brown rice, and reheated stew) turned out OK. I attempted vegan benne wafers earlier this week; waferness was not achieved, so I will try another recipe and/or a hotter oven next time. Tomorrow, I will experiment with pork and cabbage bao. (My donations to the church auction included a Year of the Earth Pig dinner for four. It raised $180.)

Speaking of party prep, it's time for me to tackle the ironing and mending piles. In the meantime, here's a glimpse of an Edward Gorey panel someone affixed to the inside of a Little Free Library on Eastland:

Title: Inventories, III
Challenge: Investigation
Word Count: 100

The accounting wallahs sent by the Board of Governors sat quietly as Minerva introduced the staff, the oldest visibly yawning by the end. It was clear they expected yet another boring list of numbers, and would treat it accordingly.

That ended when Minerva asked for the school inventories. Severus bowed, turned, and snapped his fingers, then stepped back as a dozen elves, each balancing a foot-thick stack of parchment on its head, processed in and deposited the fruits of his labors on the conference room table.

“The results of my investigation, ladies and gentlemen. I trust this is sufficient?”

Title: Inventories, II
Challenge: Investigation
Word Count: 100

Severus' stores may have been “shipshape and Bristol fashion,” as his Muggle gran had put it, but the same could not be said of his colleagues. The Quidditch changing rooms were appalling, even after a concerted investigation to determine what had happened to the winter-grade uniforms, and the less said about Divination, the better. Even with every elf in the castle assisting, tracking down every missing bat, broom, and ancient tin or box of White Tippy Dragon Oolong of the Five Elemental Winds would be a nightmare.

So of course Minerva put Severus in charge of straightening it all out.

“Remind me again why we are inventorying every single object in the ruddy castle?” Severus, who had just spent eight excruciating days inventorying his still room, the Slytherin House common room and dormitories, and a goodly chunk of the Head of School's wine cellar, downed a headache tincture in one gulp. “I still had to order my books for the fall and - “

“The Board of Governors require a periodic inventory. If anything is missing, we need to investigate, account for the loss, and make it good.” Minerva sighed. “I don't like it either, but needs must.”

Snowflake Challenge Day 15

Oops, for some reason I thought this was a 14 day challenge, but yay that I have one more day!

Day 15

Talk about why you participated in Snowflake &/or what you got out of it. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I have participated for...*checks*...5 years! I began in 2014, skipped 2016 for health reasons, and here I am.

Doing Snowflake seems to reground me in fandom, if that makes sense? It rekindles my love for my fandom, makes me think about why I'm here, and about the joy I get out of fandom. This such a huge part of my life that not everyone in my "real life"(I hesitate to call it that since why can't my online life be real? Grr) knows about, and Snowflake gives me a chance to celebrate it.

Plus, I generally get new friends out of Snowflake, which is fun.

And I love that it's always different, yet similar! I love the day where we do recs, and where people have to self rec since then it gives me things to read. *g*

Basically, as long as I remain enthusiastic about fandom, I'll prolly do Snowflake.

In sum:

Snowflake Challenge Day 14


Day 14

In your own space, talk about what you think the future holds for fandom. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

People far wiser than I am have opined on this, so all I'll say is, while I do see HP fandom shrinking, those of us who are left are ~passionate. LOL.
And while I've tried to use other platforms for fandom interactions, I've never mastered them, so I'm resigned to sticking to AO3 and DW, which I have at least managed to sort of master. :P
In fact, [personal profile] torino10154 and I used to joke about being the last two people in fandom, and if one of us left, the other would turn out the lights. Let's just say, I have no plans to douse the lights yet. :)

So, in sum, I'm keeping the fandom light going as long as I can:

Snowflake Challenge Day 13

Day 13

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

These are all fannish goals.

1. I'd like to finish my currently unfinished drabble series' (Snape: Horcrux Hunter, Snarry Wisdom, H/D Aurors). And then maybe resist starting any new ones. :P

2. I'd like to continue writing poetry! That was fun last year. :)

3. This one is more amorphous. I'd like to be more content in what I manage for fandom. This is my hobby, my happy place, but I do tend to put pressure on myself when I don't manage to do everything I think I should, so...I'd like to relax a bit more about it all. :)

Challenge #776: "Investigation"

Challenge 776: Investigation

This week we take a break from wizarding societies and instead we'll have a simple prompt word: Investigation.
Maybe your mod has been watching too much television news, but that seems to be the word of the week.
So, let's discuss Snape and investigation, in whatever context you like.

(Remember: drabble posts now appear on livejournal and insanejournal and dreamwidth.)
