While I wait for the washing machine cycle to finish so I can throw stuff in the laundry and then go to the office...

1) My week has been really really really stressful. Like whoa. I have four hours of intense work to do today at the office, and then I'm retreating home (to work all weekend where it's quiet).
2) But a happy-hour drink with friends Downtown tonight -- which was arranged when I saw E walking his wife's dog this morning as Master Danger and I did OUR walk.
3) That's how we roll, here in Small Town.
4) My icon is of Ripper because my inner punch-people-in-the-face side is threatening to come out with a colleague or two.
5) Lalala.
6) Also, let's be real -- how gorgeous was Tony Head as Ripper? THIS MUCH GORGEOUS.
7) Brightens the day, yes?
8) Speaking of bright days, Earth Day is tomorrow! I might try to get to the March for Science held on the beach, because yay science, but it would involve driving and talking to people, two activities I'm not too keen on.
9) Spin cycle! Hey, here's a drabble on the topic of Spin.

"Stop spinning!" Anya hissed at the vampire dancing around her. Her fingers tightened on the stake, which felt too slippery, too insecure, where were Potentials –

"Stand still," came a beloved English voice. Footsteps, running --

"Which one of us?" she said.

A sword flashed in the moonlight, aimed at the stupid spinny vampire's neck. Poof, and now vamp ashes floated in the moonlight.

"You," Giles said, breathing heavily.

"You rescued me," she said, putting her hand on his arm. "Nicely done, honey."

"I always will," he said, and kissed her, there in the moonlight. She felt the world spin.


10) Off to work I go!

Hugs and a happy Friday to you.

You made me think there should be a national day devoted to objectifying Tony Head, but then why limit it to just one day?

Lovely drabble.

Do not punch, use a sword, your knuckles will thank you.

Good thoughts and all the **hugs**.

Yay! for drinks after a stressful week. (That started out as Yay! for drinking, but I thought I'd better dial it back a little.)

He is at least THAT MUCH GORGEOUS. I was watching some of the old Taster's Choice commercials the other week.

Wonderful drabble! You write that 'ship best of anyone.

Oh, yes, Tony as Ripper. I'm heartbroken that the Ripper spinoff didn't take off. BUT, bet if I look on AO3 I'll find some. Maybe, some written by YOU?

Loved the drabble! Sorry to hear about your stressful week, but hopefully meeting friends for drinks started your weekend off right. Plus, remember not too many sleeps until your trip :-)

::hugs, hugs::

Claudia (tomorrow will be exactly 6w 'til my trip, hurray)

It's hard to pick, but I'm most looking forward to catching up with my friend Yoko in Helsinki! She lives in Japan, so we rarely see each other; it'll be especially wonderful to spend time with her. Plus I've never been to Finland, and I'm a real fan of Scandinavian design.

What about you? What are you looking forward to most about your upcoming trip?

::hugs, hugs::

All those plans sound wonderful! No wonder you can't just pick one!

Loved the drabble :)

If we couldn't have the series the least they could have done is have Ripper show up in one more episode. I would have watched the hell out of that.
