Yesterday I took Kitteh to the vet for her annual injections and check up. Her weight is good; her teeth are good. I am happy. The vet fee lightened my wallet somewhat but at least I'm getting a decent income from tutoring at the moment. My new job starts on January 25th and I am very conscious of the time passing. Other than tutoring, I've just been trying to stay fit and do all my Classics reading. I finished The Odyssey yesterday. Surprisingly, I found I liked The Iliad a LOT more, despite the fact that it took me only three days to read the The Odyssey (compared to three weeks for the latter.) Sure Achilles is kind of whiny, but Odysseus is a douchey hypocrite. Anyway. Next up is Apology in 'The Last Days of Socrates' by Plato.

So what else is new with me? SUPERCAT, THAT'S WHAT.

In the new lingo of the fangirls on Tumblr, I am 'trash' for Supercat. What is Supercat, you may ask? It's a femslash ship pairing Kara Danvers (Supergirl) and Cat Grant (her boss and the Queen of All Media). I haven't shipped a pairing this hard since... I don't know, maybe even T/7 back in the day, with Star Trek: Voyager. In the last week, I've gone and read every single half-way decent fic on AO3 and followed half a dozen new tumblrs. And last night, I finally started writing my first fan-fiction since 2003. Jesus Christ I'm old.

Guys, I'm really, really, REALLY excited about this ship and this show.

Seriously, just look how gay this gifset is

Nawww, they're adorbs!! I have no knowledge of that show, but I looked through some of the gifs, and the lip-licking... Eeeee!! I feel excited for your shipping! Hahah.

Good on you for being so prepared/dedicated. Like, I know it's your job (lulz...), but still... I am impressed. Yay, Classics!

Glad feline friend is well. ^__^

Lol thanks Steph. Your comment is lovely and makes me very happy. You should watch Supergirl! Though the femslashy goodness doesn't start until about episode 4 or so. By the way, do you have a Tumblr?

In any case, I look forward to seeing you again at upcoming boardgames!

... I'm pretty excited ;). Heheheh.

I was in a games shop yesterday, buying Ticket To Ride as a friend's belated birthday present, and I was getting all worked up and wanting to buy all the games for myself. Which I still may do ;). Because hey, games bring happiness and mental acuity and FUN, all so good and worth investing in, hey? Hahah.

Maybe I will look into Supergirl. Actually, I've heard a little about it, perhaps even heard you mentioning things?

As for Tumblr... I do not have one. Because I know I could quite easily spend ALL my time on there and follow ALL THE THINGS and get overwhelmed. Hah!! Yup. So I stay away ^__~. Except for the odd peek from time to time. Heheh. Yours looks fun, though!

Happy Wednesday :).

Also, I realize how often I convey laughter in writing. But it's accurate! I just hope it doesn't look too nuts :P.

Ticket to Ride! I have that as a Steam game and also on my iPad but not as a board game. Would totes play it. What else caught your eye? I agree wholeheartedly that boardgames are a great investment.

OMG YOU SHOULD TOTALLY LOOK INTO SUPERGIRL. Ahem. I mean. Sure, if you want. No biggie.

I have that attitude towards Tumblr when I'm working, too. I just don't have the time for it. But right now I'm indulging in ALL my fandom feels (of which there are many).

Happy Thursday! ;)

I have only seen one episode of the show, when I was in Canada, and I definitely saw the ship. Also, Kara totally looks like a friend of mine. Who is a lesbian. But taken ;p
