Today's top thoughts

If you are the sort of person who gets things stuck in your head, do yourself a favor and don't listen to your friends' crazy ideas. The back of my head is busily scripting and writing lyrics for a terrible monster movie musical, tunes provided by Disney, set in Victorian-era London and currently hinging on the very shaky plot point of sucrose being a deadly poison to the monster. This is not voluntary on the part of my conscious mind, I assure you. It's just that the one line I was given is so damn catchy, I can't keep it out of my head.

Meanwhile, and entirely unrelated, it appears that Balticon ate my cell phone's battery life. From the time I got it up through a week ago, a charge lasted me about two weeks on average. Since last weekend, a charge is lasting approximately two days. I am Not Amused and have had strong words with the phone. It's about a year and a half old, so I have been expecting a drop in efficiency, but this was both abrupt and drastic. I'm hoping to convince it to give me at least a little more.

Also, wedding preparations have overtaken the office this morning, hunting for fonts and envelope sizes for printing the invitation envelopes. Imagine my delight. I am, at least, excused from the font-hunting and allowed to do some regular work, but I'm the only one who can troubleshoot the printer, which they're confusing every ten minutes or so. Why yes, I am in tech support... sort of.

Tomorrow, we try again for Spy Movie Day. Last time I got suddenly sick and had to flake out. Here's hoping this weekend works out better. Just hanging out and watching movies is really appealing to me at present.

Yes, well, thanks to a hyperactive imagination - I KNOW WHERE IT CAME FROM! *shudder* (At least, my version.)

That was where I started. But it seemed too silly. So I postulated a metabolism where it's actually a toxin.

Either way, it's to make it easier to rewrite A Spoonful of Sugar.

I really wanted to stop. But now that I have a plot for it, it's never going to go away unless I actually write the damn thing.

Maybe. There's still the whole part about the evil mad scientist and his naive explorer friend that I have to work around.

Two questions:
1) Who's getting married?
2) What was the word/phrase?

1) My boss's son and my new co-worker (which is why she's my new co-worker.

2) Chupacabraroboraptoroctosharkasaurus.
