So a friend on Twitter is looking for a Housefic! This is what she remembers --

Been looking for a Hilson fic for months and months. First time fic. Opens with Wilson in his car at PPTH. Finds himself heading up to House's office. House in chair, back to door, Wilson observing him through the glass. House turns around; he's been crying. They go back to House's -- Wilson drives, House has his hand on Wilson's thigh the whole way. Pretty sure it's set after the "We're not friends" speech. Pretty sure I read it on LJ; might have been on Topaz_Eyes' list, but then again, might not.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Otherwise known as jury duty, which I was summoned to this week.

Cut for a lot of blather about what it was like ...  )

OTHERWISE. It is hot and humid. In recent weeks, I have read:

The Sunlight Pilgrims, by Jenni Fagan. Apocafic, ahoy! Really liked it, two thumbs up.
Oleander, Jacaranda: A Childhood Perceived, by Penelope Lively. Memoir of the English novelist's Egyptian childhood. Very interesting, would recommend.
The Astaires: Fred & Adele, by Kathleen Riley. Short dual biography of Fred Astaire and his sister, Adele. Maybe a bit too heavy on the details of the behind-the-scenes construction of a Broadway musical, but still good.

Not sure what is up next -- maybe Min Jin Lee's Pachinko, maybe Paul La Farge's The Night Ocean, maybe something else. :-)

Dear Everyone, thank you

 I want you all to know I'm reading all your comments regarding Twilight, and I appreciate you all very much, and when I try to start replying, my brain kinda ... freezes up and then finds something else to think about. I don't seem to be up to individual replies yet. Thank you all for your kindness. 

I'm doing as well as could be hoped right now. It's been a really good day, other than that One Thing, you know?

These are all 5x7" paintings, so, the size of a standard greeting card. Click for full size. I've been making them on a regular basis and have sold many of them already. So there's these, and the BIG dog portrait I'm working on, and my two regular jobs (frame shop, teaching) and as of Monday my horse is having serious issues again and I have no idea if that's going to end well or not. :-/

But in most ways I'm doing pretty well. And Nightdog and I finished a story which I think goes up today. And the National Dumpster Fire continues, and the less said about that, the better, but I did call both my Senators today to oppose the vampiric can't-see-the-daylight "health care" bill.

My god, there is a huge fire in an apartment tower in west London.

It looks really bad.
