Well, the yard sale is over and I survived. Yay!

I did get sunburned however. But only my burned lips really bother me, the rest is okay.

I made around $230!!! Woo!!!

So I treated myself tonight and went shopping and spent half of it on some clothes that actually fit me! I was wearing 18 women's size clothes that were getting a bit snug when I started the weight loss deal back at the end of May / first part of June. Now I'm getting 14 Petites (and I found 14 Petite Shorts which was even better)!!

I went to Wal-Mart first and didn't find much I was happy with. I gambled on Kohl's and struck gold with a sale they were having and found their Petite section... I love that there is a Petite section.

So I got a new pair of pants and two new shirts from there and saved $50 on them from the sale. :-)

Other than that, all is going well. I have a question for people though:

Do you have a fic, more than one fic or an author that you use as your procrastination place? I do. I figured this out during the move and the yard sale prep.

Right now, my procrastination author is xanthe and all her NCIS fics.

My other procrastination original fiction series is The Slave Breakers by maculategiraffe.

Between those two, I can procrastinate for a long, long time. :-)

Poll #1466574 Procrastination

Do you have a procrastination fic/author?

Yes, and more than one!
Yes, just the one.
Nope and I don't procrastinate.

Who is/are your procrastination fic(s)/author(s)? (comments welcomed too)

Congrats on the yard sale and on the weight loss, that's GREAT!

I procrastinate with fic all the time. Either reading stuff I already love- NCIS-wise- xanthelj (whom you mispelled up there) or KSL (who's main website is on geocities so I hope I find it when she moves it) or delving into a new fandom. Currently I'm reading Magnificent Seven (tv) stuff, of which there is a HUGE number of stories in archives

Thanks for the catch on Xanthe... I always say "Xanth - the - LJ" in my head to spell it right and didn't that time. :-)

What's strange is that I reread KSL's stuff when I'm not procrastinating... KSL is on LJ - ksl2025, but she doesn't post her fics here. I was wondering what she's going to do with geocities going bye-bye. She has been posting on MTAC. But not everything is there yet.

She's also on wwomb, but only her NCIS and NCIS crossover stuff. A few of her Mag7 things are on Mag7 archives, but I haven't seen her mention starting a new website up. I hope she does, I just love the way she writes the Gibbs/Tony relationship

I know... and I liked how she had her NCIS fics laid out on the site with groups so it was easy to get to the various parts. I'm not a fan of going to wwomb cause I usually have issues with it loading and the themes on the various locations go all wacky on my mac from time to time.

I have problems with mtac and wwomb with wonky formatting sometimes. *sigh*

Whoooo to the yard sale! Making money by getting rid of your junk is always awesome. Double "whoo!" to losing weight and getting new clothes! Much as it's a pain in the ass, clothes shopping can be fun. :D

As for fics/authors that I procrastinate with... uh, I have lots. *sporfle* I have folders and folders of fics bookmarked that I categorize by pairing from multiple fandoms - NCIS, CSI, Psych, Harry Potter.... all of them slash. Heh. And there's a definite abundance of certain authors lurking in there - you, xanthe... and a whole bunch others, but I can't think of anyone else off the top of my head. *sporfle*

That icon always makes me smile... :-)

And yay for lurking in your folders! And did that come out dirty sounding?? *innocent blink*
Oct. 7th, 2009 04:14 am (UTC)
Heee! *pets Tony and his orgasm smile*

Probably because about 85% of the stories in there are pr0nz? *cough*
Oct. 5th, 2009 03:57 am (UTC)
Yay on all manner of exciting stuff!

Xanthe is my big procrastination author because even though I tell myself that I can just read a little bit and then stop, it never works out that way.
Oct. 5th, 2009 03:58 am (UTC)
That's the same for me. "Just a bit more..." and several hours later...

Oct. 5th, 2009 08:11 am (UTC)
Yay! I'm someone's "procrastination author" *ggg*. While never actually hearing this term before, I am very happy to have this title *beams*.

Xanthe's one of my procrastination authors as well (her fics are EPIC-length, so it's easy), but I also have chirugal for when I want to read Gibbs/Abby...and even if it sounds a little arrogant, I love re-reading the stuff Rudi and I write together.

Sometimes, even though the story isn't all that great, I can't stay away from "Rescue Pup" for the bits that aren't Tony-acting-like-a-dog and if I ignore all the UK-isms.

I'll also go back and read authors from my X-Men fandom days. Ridesandruns on ff.net writes hilarious X-Men fic that I love to read and re-read.

Go you! (On the garage sale and weight loss)

My procrastination is often found in the form of Role Playing instead of reading. :)
