Ugh

Spent so much of last week looking after Cal, who developed a freaking March Break cold (as usual--and partway through Mom started grilling me about trying to figure out why, like I even could; "Oh, this happens all the time, he's sick all the time, there must be something we can do." Really? Seriously? "He's so thin, he should be eating more stuff, he's going through puberty..." Yeah, I'll just FIX that, somehow. With the power of my mind. Jesus Christ.). Now, today, it's me feeling like shit for no particularly good reason; I woke up like this, as the old song goes. Can barely open my eyes, slept in with the alarm set, woke up and slept some more. Back and forth to the bathroom throughout for what seems like an amazing amount of slow, super-concentrated bowel movements. Now I'm an hour away from having to get Cal over to his choir rehearsal, and won't that be fun. Ugh.

In other news, I finished Chapter Two of "Always Tried To Be A Good Girl..." and posted it, here (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10268510/chapters/22879206). This section contains Christine Keller flashbacks, an introduction to Rhea O'Reilly and slightly more "normal" Schillinger action than we've had thus far. Also Toby Beecher, compartmentalizin' fool. The upcoming chapter has a lot of Crazy Beecher action, and this is a preview, in some ways. I'm still enjoying it far too much for my own good.

Stuff I found that's fun: This article about Basic Instinct at 25 and "Why We Need to Revive the Erotic Thriller", which I feel like I could have written (http://collider.com/basic-instinct-why-we-need-to-revive-the-erotic-thriller/#25th-anniversary); this hilarious post about Lee Tergesen watching Chris Meloni on Inside The Actor's Studio and crying over their fake prison relationship (http://handful-ofdust.tumblr.com/post/158579460946/vanillalime88-lee-chris-meloni-was-just); an article about the new wave of female horror directors (https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/mar/19/the-female-directors-bringing-new-blood-horror-films-babadook-raw-prevenge?CMP=twt_a-film_b-gdnfilm); and this, which has the single best headline ever (https://creators.vice.com/en_us/article/meet-the-artist-using-ritual-magic-to-trap-self-driving-cars?utm_source=tcpfbus). Now I'm going to make a list of all the crap I need to get done and try and figure out how any of that's going to happen.
