Things at Home & Work: (because those two things are more connected now)

3 humans, 5 cats. All is well. That’s more important to say, because everyone at our house is still healthy and probably going to stay that way. Here in Pennsylvania, we’re under a general stay-at-home-unless-absolutely-necessary order. Mom is a homemaker, so that’s usual for her, but Dad is now working from home (and sharing the office where my desk is, too). But that’s not a problem, because my work is healthcare-adjacent (we do shipping for clinical trials) so I still have to go to work. The work itself is the same, slightly busier, but my co-workers are starting to get on my nerves. They were obsessive germaphobes to begin with, but now they’re getting unbearable. I’m trying to be patient, because not everyone was raised by Vulcans like I was, but it’s hard. And the news is just full of useless speculation and fearmongering… it’s exhausting.

AO3 Friends?

Anybody here also on AO3?

I'm trying to make a list of LJ / AO3 usernames so when I post gift fics, I can tag / gift them correctly.

If you are on AO3, comment with your username. Comments will be screened, so if you prefer to keep your LJ and AO3 lives separate, let me know.

And if you're not on AO3, I do have a few invites left...
