Apparently the maintenance guy decided it was necessary to cut down one of the lilac bushes in front of my house. sigh. It was going to blossom soon, too. Okay, it was overhanging my car, but I didn't mind. Really. *loves the smell of lilacs* Oh well. I've decided to plant some random flowers in the empty space.

I meant to go out rummage/garage saling on Saturday, but then it snowed. Ah, the joys of living in Minnesota. It's just as well, I suppose, because I don't really need anything right now. I was going to look for another bookcase, but my mom found one at a sale for me earlier in the week, so I'm set as far as that goes. I think the weather is finally switching to proper spring/summer mode, though, which is great. I've missed riding my bike.

As far as fanfic & such go, I am still in something of a writing slump, (though coming out of it, I think). Been busy this past week anyway, with a lack of presence online. I am pretty well astonished that I placed at all for my "home" drabble. I had kind of assumed it was going to be too much of a downer for anyone to actually vote for it. As for new themes, I've already decided I'm going to skip the "scars" theme, because it's too close to an idea I have for a request fic. I'll see what happens with the others; no immediate inspiration. I'm still not feeling inclined to force anything.

Hmm. New Star Wars movie today. I'm perfectly content to just wait until it hits the discount theatre, truth be told. As much as I love Jedi in general and Ewan McGregor in particular, I just can't bring myself to be excited by it. Well, perhaps that will change when word of mouth kicks in. Actually, I am pretty sure one of my friends wants to go very soon and she'll want me to come too, so I probably won't end up seeing it for $1.50.
