Hello, LJ and DW! I appear here from the vast deserts of Facebook, where I have lately been spending all my social media time. Even my brief fling with Tumblr and even briefer affair with Pinterest peetered out.

I am much the same as the last time I checked in. Still doing real estate law at the same firm, where it is strange to think I have been working for almost 2.5 years now. AG33 (fka The Small Boy) has finished applying to colleges and is now waiting for decisions. The Barbarian is tearing up the fourth grade.

I haven't written any fan fiction in ages, and my attempt at NaNo was so incredibly boring I gave up on it about 4000 words in. Mostly I spend my non-work time sleeping, baking, and playing Destiny, an addiction that has shown no sign of abating, though I have seriously cut back on my playing time in favor of sleep. I did strike out and set up my own PlayStation account and am mostly playing "my own" character, just checking in on the account I share with husband to do a little maintenance now and then. You can find me puttering around as Cee_the_Crone, if you are into that kind of thing. Another of my free time things now is listening to podcasts and watching video related to PvP play. This is how far down the rabbit hole I have gone. I read about sniping, then practice. I read or watch the occasional weapon review. I'm still not active on Reddit, but I do have an account. I am happy to report that while sometimes I feel that I should be self-conscious about the whole thing, I'm not, really. This is nothing at all like my crisis of self over the Frodo crush 10 years ago.

So, hey! How are YOU doing?

Great to see you!

I too had a massive Frodo crush! You are not alone!!!

How can your kids be that big now! Amazing!!!

I am still in SG-1, mostly, but am reading a lot of Marvel fic and have been reading a lot of pro fic this year too. My writing has slowed way down; woe is I. Things are good on the home front, mostly, knock wood.

I just went to a slash con in California and am waiting impatiently for spring break.

My teenagers loved Destiny! It was their go-to game for years. My older boy still plays it and has added Battlefront. The younger one has abandoned both for WoW.

We were all delighted by the new Star Wars movie -- they are huge SW fans and grew up with it and with the animated shows.

The new Star Wars movie is nothing like the prequels. Nothing. I predict if you can focus on the new team and not the rather confusing plot you will enjoy yourself.

The Martian was great!

Seconding this so hard! I felt that uplift of joy I had back when I saw the very first movie in 1977. Thank god Lucas let go of the reins.

Holy crap, AG33 is heading towards college!!! Time flies when you're piddling around on the Internet... I'm still reading—and super lazy about updating recs these days. Primarily reading Teen Wolf, watching TW and Marvel's SHIELD and Agent Carter, catching all MCU movies, and that's about it.

My mom moved to town a little over a year ago, so I spend a lot of time helping her out. And just enjoying when she's doing well—we both loved Hail, Caesar last weekend.
