Took Squirmy and Devil-child to Science World on Saturday. Squirmy had a ball, thorouly enjoying holding a T-Rex tooth, touching Dinosaur eggs and seeing, first-hand, a real Tricerotops skull. The best part, for Squirmy, was the interactive section; playing with the water-bridge/current thing, the shadow room, lifting a hippo (fulcrum/lever things) and making weird sounds by interrupting various light beams.

Once we were home, SiL and hubby came over to store the tent-trailer in the garage. My God! That thing is massive! It didn't look THAT big when it was outside in their driveway, but stick the sucker inside... it fits, just barely, inside our garage.

The puppies were born October thirteenth - three males, three females - and everyone is doing fine. Hubby is... well, excited really doesn't do his mood justice. And, lord help me, he's also talking about getting one of the females too. But unless hubby has learned how to fart hundred dollar bills, I don't think a second dog will be happening any time soon.

Oh, and Devil-child has loaned me her Harry Potter books.

Holy crap! Working by committee is unbelievably time consuming/wasteful. I sent a look-over/menu clarification message on Sunday to the rep., who then forwarded it to the committee members (and the president who, I'm learning, knows jack-shit about web-related stuff) and I've yet to hear back. Having never taken a project of this size (site-wise or people-wise) I've no idea if this is normal or not. One thing I do know, it's annoying.

I have found more R/H than I thought possible, all of it (so far) good. And I'll probably rot in hell for reading devouring it. Maybe it's a good thing the web project has stalled right now; doing a lot of reading at night.

I think me and hubby are enjoying the Harry Potter movies more than Squirmy. This weekend's HP movie was Goblet of Fire and it was... interesting. I absolutely have to get the books to fill in the damn blank places the movies are leaving. Oh, the movies are very enjoyable fare, but I know there's details and explanations they just can't cover in the time allotted. Like the DeathEater things - those I've gotta find out more about.

And... because I'm obviously insane, screwed up, or plain sick, I'd rather like to read HP fanfic (oh gods, save my soul!). The Cat was into Snape/Harry but... no, there isn't enough brain bleach in the world to entice me to read those. Draco/Harry is, to me, so bloody implausible (unless Draco is raping Harry, and I avoid rape fics like the plague). Frankly, I'd like to kick Draco in the happy-sack and beat the shit outta him. I hope I'm not the only one who cheered (yes, stood up, punched my fist in the air and CHEERED!) when Hermione got the little blond shit in Prisoner.

So the sad truth on the HP fanfic front is... I'd like to find some Ron/Harry (either way is fine with me) or Ron/Hermione. I seem to recall the latter being a popular 'ship (can't help but bump into HP fanfic once in a while), but I don't recall seeing any of the former. Mind you, I wasn't looking for it either. Wonder how much dreck I'll find on this hunt...

Sentinel - Past the Guilt  by Lyn
Sentinel - Homeward Bound  by Alyjude
Sentinel - Hour of Lead  by Lyn
Sentinel - Fear of Flying  by Lanning Cook
Sentinel - (The) Braid  by akablonded
Sentinel - Storm Signs  by Legion
  Crossover with Quantum Leap. Having encountered one too many poorly written/characterized crossovers, I'm very wary of the genre.

  Legion is one of my favorite TS writers; her words, and the scenes she weaves with them, leave me spinning, smiling, weeping and laughing. So for someone leary of crossovers, one written by a favorite author is a probably a good place to start. Also, QL holds a very special place in my heart.

  This story is... well, it'll blow your mind and make perfect sense while doing it. On the QL side of things, this story is a perfect epilogue to the last ever episode, explaining things left to viewers imaginations, weaving past/present/future together very nicely and logically. On the TS side of the story, given the characters of Jim and Blair, their trials and tribulations in this story could easily be canon.

So bring nourishment (and kleenex) and prepare yourself for an incredible read.

Sentinel - Eye of the Storm  by Legion
  Crossover with Quantum Leap; sequel to Storm Signs.

  The details, the reason/plotting/concepts/theory behind the details... geez louise! "Incredible" is not adequate enough; not sure any word I can think of would describe this story.
