So my phone and Internet that were supposed to be hooked up on the 20th, still
do not work. It was installed on Thursday like it was supposed to be, and heck! It even worked for a few hours. But then the phone line went dead, and without a phone line there is no internet and blah blah blah blah blah blah. No connection for me. Oh – and the fun part is, we were supposed to have a repair person come in Sunday afternoon to fix the problem, but he apparently showed up an hour before he was supposed to and well gosh, I wasn’t there (I was at church
. Sue me) and now we can’t get another appointment until Wednesday.
I feel about ready to kick Aliant (that’s ‘Bell’ to those of you west of New Brunswick) really hard in their metaphorical nuts. If my apartment building didn’t have pretty darn good student deals with them, I’d definitely switch to Eastlink. As it is, I’m seriouly considering it.
So that’s my rant of the past couple weeks. You know, I had a really smooth move, I love my new apartment (so big and pretty!) I’m getting along with my roommate, classes are great, but this one thing… GAH! *breathes* I always appreciated a fast internet connection but uh… now I appreciate it more
. A lot more. A LOT.
(I should mention – this post is being entirely written in a word document, which I [pray] will then upload to the beloved LJ without much fuss. I’m currently trying to send an e-mail to my sister using the corner of fervid prayer. It’s… not going well.)
Moving aside from the self-pity for one moment though (what, I can do it) I miss fandom! And especially I miss fic. But despite missing it, I haven’t been especially interested in reading most of it anymore (I’m sure the fact that it takes a HUGE amount of effort to get to the fic in the first place doesn’t – Right, no more self-pity) and I REALLY can’t seem to write it anymore. Poo. So instead I think I’m going to take up that meme that was circulating a LONG time ago, about posting some of the loose ends fic that people have lying around in their harddrive. Because I have a lot of it. I should know. It’s what I’ve been doing in my
spare time. That, and making my computer read aloud Shakespearian sonnets in that Robo-voice they can do. Really, I think he could have a career in the theatre. He’s starting to really get a hold of that iambic pentameter.
ANYway (*g*), here is the cream of the crop of my rejected!fic. And I won’t lie, most of it wasn’t posted for a reason. But it’s all I have right now.
So, here’s some drabbles and fragments from Firefly
, The Office
and even Harry Potter
. (I know, who knew?) Oh, and one very embarrassing kid!fic that, despite the obvious kid content, I think is actually pretty well written (In that overly sweet, give you cavities way.) So I’m still hiding it in the rejected!fic post. ;) ( Farscape Drabble )

Hopefully, I’ll have actually internet by Wednesday. Here’s hoping. And praying. And making sacrifices to the Internetz Gods.
…I’m not desperate.
