Aww yeah, green tea, cherry flavor. Well, y'know, cherry plus stuff to make it sound classy. It's actually called Cherry Moon, which is nice and evocative. And I got this other kind, called Chanticleer Breakfast Tea, which basically seems to be tea-flavored tea. I appreciate that. I had a cup this morning and it was very pleasant. Eastern Shore Tea Company- look 'em up. Really nice teas, never bitter, always tasty, you can order online and get your tea in a few days. I also recommend Baltimore Clipper Ship Tea, Black Raven Tea, and (if you can find it) Chestertown Tea. Tea doesn't look like a word anymore.

So, I'm going to the eye doctor tomorrow, because it's been quite a while since my last check-up, and also because I'm seriously thinking about getting my vision corrected. With a laser. I think eighteen years is long enough dealing with my piss-poor vision. If the doctor says it's okay, I'm probably going to go for it.

On the movie front- because I really talk about movies a lot, don't I, oh well- I'm going to be carving out some time for There Will Be Blood. That's a movie I'm watching more just to have watched it than because I really want to. And these days I have a fondness for Paul F. Tompkins, so I was more motivated to move it along in the queue than I might have been. Also, I can't decide if I want to see Cabin in the Woods and/or The Pirates! Band of Misfits, or let them wait for DVD. I could kind of use a stay-around-the-house weekend- do some cleaning, do some writing. It's been a while since I really cooked anything. It would be nice. Weather's supposed to suck anyway. Hm.

And finally, another one of these! 6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

Woof, that's a tough question. Having written a slash OTP on an already male-dominated show for almost... five years now (!!!), I have genuinely felt guilty for how few female characters I've attempted. To the point where, during Stories, in the End, I actually had a moment of realization that there were more female characters than male. And I felt kinda proud of myself.

*sigh* Whatever, honestly, maybe this is a cop-out, but the best I can do is write what the story tells me to. As long as the story gets told, I don't see much point stressing over the characters' genders.

And now I'm noticing this question is deeply tied to the gender binary, which I don't particularly subscribe to. And now I feel guilty I haven't ever written any queer or trans or intersex or non-gendered characters. Fabulous.
