In recent months I have gone from being able to wear underwire bras for a few hours to rarely being able to wear underwire bras at all. I have many lovely colorful underwire bras that have not seen much wear, and I am hoping some of you might be interested in buying some of them, as I am broke and still looking for a job.

Sized 42G/44F, exciting teals and magentas and also some standard beiges and blacks, all with underwire of course, some padded, some unlined/mesh.

I am requesting $17 for one bra, $12 each for any subsequent bras, no shipping charge in the US lower 48 (I can look into shipping costs elsewhere if desired). These were all around $50 when brand new, so this is a steal!

I very rarely if ever have the patience to make my own pie crusts, but I also usually dislike storebought ones (pilsbury, usually is what i can find) to the extent of why did I even bother to give this thing a crust?

but I have discovered that I actually like trader joe's house brand pre-made frozen pie crusts. The main flavor difference is that down in the bottom of of the ingredients, just before salt, is sugar. strangely, I suppose, I think a sweet pie should have an at least moderately sweet crust? texturally and/or digestively, when reading ingredients to figure out what the difference, it turns out pilsbury uses xanthan gum. so much for them.

I've gotten remarkably lazy about photo taking. phones and cameras )

In other news entirely, I'm outlining two fics. Yeah, I don't know what to do with that, especially since they're Shadowhunters fics. We'll see if they actually end up written, if I can find someone to beta, if, if, if. I haven't written anything* for, uh, years, so I'm kind of fascinated it's happening at all. I'd already written a couple of scenes when I realized a) it was going to be longer than I thought (isn't that a rule of writing?) and b) I really needed an outline. Also there was a second story. On the bright side, the outline is definitely helping clarify things and I'm tentatively setting a goal of having it finished by the end of the week. The outline, that is, not the fic(s).

*On paper - or on screen, as the case may be. In my head or editing my old fic files because they're driving me batty doesn't count. (I've edited my own files enough I should probably re-download the AO3 versions just to keep copies but see the aforementioned batty.)

My pro-fic reading has taken a backseat lately due to stress and falling into the previously mentioned new fandom which, I kid you not, actually involved watching all the available (TV) canon. D watched it with me, which helped, but I couldn't tell you the last time I did any such thing. My brain + TV has had a troubled relationship ever since the 2004 election cycle which, you may note, was 13 years ago. High on that success, I've started watching Leverage from the beginning and I'm hoping, after getting through it, to move on to Avatar: The Last Airbender. I've made attempts at both in the past but failed out because brains are stupid, so fingers crossed it's improved enough I can do it this time.

Having said all that, one of my library holds came up (Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai) so I have a lot to squeeze in suddenly in addition to, ya know, work. Plus, I have two excellent books I was in the middle of before derailment - Spectered Isle by K.J. Charles and, on audio, Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear (superb voice narration by Jennifer Grace) - that I would really like to get back to, but I don't have to worry about their leases expiring. Not to mention the other 3 I technically have as in progress on GoodReads. Yes, I have a problem. There are worse problems to have but looking at my GoodReads To Read shelf is almost painful because there's too much potential amazing on there.
