I saw Wonder Woman yesterday, and I enjoyed it a lot. One of my favorite superhero movies so far, though I can't say how much of that is because of how wonderful it felt to watch a movie about a female superhero. Spoilers )

Usually I would go back and read many reaction posts/reviews of the movie by other people now, but I work full-time now and there are fewer hours in the day and it's very annoying. Still no time machine. (Though to be fair if I had a time machine there would be more important things to do than go back a few hours every day just so I have more free time.)

Visit with the dentist didn't go as bad as I was fearing it would - after not having gone for a very long time, I was a little worried I'd need a root canal or something, but I only have two cavities. And I do have to get the wisdom teeth removed eventually but they're cool with waiting until I can get on the better dental plan, as long as I can live with the occasional pain. I did figure out just in time what very basic dental plan I DO have, so the exam and the cleanings I'll be getting in August aren't going to cost me anything out of pocket.

One of my writing goals for 2017 was to try to write some shorter pieces, just to prove to myself that not everything has to be long and complicated, although I do love long and complicated. So far in the last two weeks I've finished three things under 2k! One was the shark story and the other two are the full pieces for [community profile] pornathon assignments, so one of those will go up next week and the other the week after, when voting closes.

Also finished the Texas Killing Fields threesome fic I've been working on since January: the age of the earth (4850 words, NC-17, Brian/Gwen/Mike) (That translates to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Annabeth Gish, and Sam Worthington. It's not a very good movie but it's got a lovely cast - Mike's ex-wife is Jessica Chastain.)

As I have only 8k to go before I make my 2017 word count goal, I wonder if I should up the number. I also need to figure out what to work on for Camp NaNoWriMo - maybe I'll brainstorm while I'm waiting for the Wilco show to start tomorrow night. (There are seats! I don't have to arrive five hours early!)

Back in Wisconsin and back at work, alas! Although I am leaving early today - to go to the dentist, where I have no insurance because apparently Humana split medical and dental in 2015 and I never got dental coverage somehow? I have no memory of HR/Humana ever telling us this was happening. So I guess I will pay whatever for the exam and then see what happens (and probably sign up for dental during this year's open enrollment). I would just wimp out and cancel but I can't keep putting off finding out whatever's up with my wisdom teeth (b/c I'm pretty sure that's what this issue is).

Monterey Bay Aquarium's live shark cam. Shaaaaaaaaaaaaark caaaaaaaaaam. There is actually a human manning it, because they just talked and I nearly jumped out of my chair.

Filling out my word count check-in for the last week, I wrote about 4500 words, which would be good except I skipped the first June check-in since I didn't write anything at all. But I finally finished the rough draft of the Texas Killing Fields story (it's a totally out of character threesome) while in CA - something like twelve pages longhand that was the entire endgame sex scene. It definitely needs editing and I'll have to re-watch the movie while I do that, so maybe part tonight and part tomorrow night. I got like 0 hours of sleep last night being worried about the dentist so tonight I might just go home and completely crash instead of doing anything at all.

Woke up around 24 hours ago, after two hours of post-packing sleep, and took the 11 hour flight to NYC. I easily slept a few hours on the flight, got a few extra perks from the flight attendants since one of them was my sister and there is a code, and landed here late this afternoon. Had dinner at my sister's favorite ramen place (Totto Ramen midtown west), flubbed buying a metrocard cause - let's say it's because I was tired (why else would I buy a $27 pay-per-ride card instead of a $32 7-day unlimited card? meep), and spent the evening in that general disbelieving haze of: oh. Right. New York City is a real place after all. Like, I see it right here, I can hear it, I can touch it, it doesn't seem like it's just one giant movie set.

It's 11PM, but 6AM for my body, and it's a miracle I've managed to type this far without falling asleep. In the past 24 hours I've missed the Tonys and the Stanley Cup Championship and who knows what else I'll miss by the time I wake up again, but to sleep I shall gooooo good night.
