These damn boys

So... these damn boys are driving me out of my mind. I wrote over 3500 words yesterday... and next to nothing today. It's annoying to me, because I want to be writing on Wicked Ones, but Joshua is not cooperating. Noooo... He's not ready to go set explosives; he wants BJs written first. Damn it, Joshua, you fucker. This is the bridge you want to fight me over? Blowjobs? Really? Really?

And Mag7/Lev (Lev7?) is on a miniature hiatus while [personal profile] katsuko and I figure out what we want to do with The First Job. Because she's writing away and I don't want to start writing overlapping bits if I can help it. And I can't just keep writing various sections later in the series. Seriously, I have two sections of The First Job, one section of The Meet-Up Job, a 5 + 1 story, and a coda to the +1 of said 5 + 1. And the coda was written before the 5 + 1. And I started all of this with the section on The Meet-Up Job... which is six years after The First Job... and the actual 'going after Bogue' story. This story may well end up being done Tarantino-style: completely nonlinear.

I did end up cooking a bit when we got home from Mirko: a sort of gumbo. It's definitely a "sort of" kind of thing, because I lacked bell peppers and was too lazy to chop up some celery and my remaining half an onion. So instead it's 8 cups of water, 3 large bouillon cubes, 2 packages of goya, 2 cans of sweet peas, 2 cans of sweet corn, a quarter jar of mild picante sauce, a can of chickpeas, a can of black beans, 2 cups of cooked white rice, a teaspoon of filé powder, and cajun seasoning. [personal profile] katsuko added Louisiana hot sauce to hers, but I didn't dare chance it this late at night in mine. I can't really give an estimate on how much cajun seasoning I added: somewhere between 1 and 3 tablespoons. I just kept adding and stirring and testing and repeating until I was happy with the results.

And... yeah... that's about it. I'm going to read some more Hawaii Five-0 fics for a bit, since I seem to be completely caught up on Vasquez/Faraday on AO3.
