It is an understatement to say that I don't like Theresa May in the least, and think she is doing the country a lot of harm - and yet, I still find Tim Lott more annoying.

Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

My fic is here.

In Potter related news (is it really twenty years? And how many friends would I not have made were it not for Potter?), Stephen Bush of the New Staggers has done a director's commentary of his ancient Harry Potter fic, and it's one of the funniest things I've read in ages.

(He had an LJ aged 12? Precocious or what?)

I have bought a breadmaker! (One of Lakeland's, for those interested).

I wonder if any of you have recipes you'd recommend, or useful do's and don't's? And are any of the ready made mixes any use?

It's nearly Lent, which means that I am seeking recommendations for good vegetarian recipes! I'd love any suggestions you might have.

This has been a trying couple of days (mostly for reasons too tiresome to get into, including a bad cold), but it would be rude and remiss of me not to note that they have been cheered by a kind gift of delicious tea from [personal profile] nanila! Thank you.

Peter Grant fans may be pleased to discover this list of acronyms in use by the Met. I am gratified to discover that HOLMES is real, and that the real Met is as besotted with unhelpful acronyms as the fictional one.

(If you want the IC numbers, though, you have to go to wiki)

Auld Year's Night, so we have been watching "Dinner For One" surrounded by boxes.

So much turkey.

(But it was delicious, and the company was good, and I am thankful).

On an unrelated note: the current political situation in both the UK and the US, and the demands from Leavers and the Right in general that Remain supporters/ Democrats just shut up and accept the new status quo, I am reminded of this excellent song from the Dixie Chicks:

Following on from my post about Cohen's death - the Grauniad has a reactions live blog (I know, I know), but it's producing an excellent compilations of links to covers of his work. Some really good stuff there.
