ff12 - balthier

Ordinary day

Welcome to NaBloWriMo. I know the "official" site is calling it NaBloPoMo, but a) I prefer the naming symmetry with NaNo and b) for me it's about writing, not posting, so I shall persevere. Of course, now that I say that, I'm kicking the effort off on a day where I don't have a lot of energy to write, and there's nothing I'm particularly burning to share with the world now-right-now. I guess that's just the way it goes.

Today's main event was half the student worker staff calling out for the day. Too much sickness/Halloween/midterms/all of the above, I suppose. Fortunately the place was pretty quiet, so it wasn't too bad. Then I had dinner at a Sardinian restaurant: sorta Italian, sorta French, all tasty. The menu was limited, but everything I tasted was good. The winner was easily the G's wild boar stew. I didn't order it, but I tried a bite of someone else's, and ooh. I'd never had boar before. It's rich, but not at all heavy, sort of like the best aspects of pork and beef all tied up together. It would do very well in Mexican food, I think. Or as a ragout. Yum.

And so that was my day. I do have plans to write more substantially for the rest of the month, although I don't promise deep thoughts every day. Some thinky things, some fic. Should be fun! I look forward to seeing what the rest of you come up with, too.

Hit me

It worked out well last year, so I'm going to open fic requests once again with a twist ganked from parron.

Give me a fandom, a character or a pairing, and a prompt, and I'll write you a drabble. The catch? The prompt should be chosen from my LJ interests.

I'd say, usual fandoms apply, but, well, I'm feeling daring. So, see above re. LJ interests, and I'll see what I can do.
