Ficcing and ranting  
Ficcing. I wrote something. It's short, not PB and sounds a bit awkward, probably because I usually need to watch a loooot more episodes before starting to write anything at all. But since I hadn't written any fic since October - and even then, I'd needed a couple of birthdays on my friend-list to come up with something - it feels nice.

Ranting. Could we stop with the "end of the decade" thing? The first decade of the millenium is not ending this year. First year of our era was Year 1 not 0. A decade = 10 years. Hence, end of the first decade was Year 10. Two thousands years later, it's still the same. As far as I remember, there was the same kind of thing about new century/new millenium back in 2000 *shakes head*
 
 
Current Mood: okayokay

Oh, you're writing! *smiles* Would you mind if I asked for which fandom? And I'm just kidding with my icon, of course. *g*

And I agree--writing does feel great after a hiatus. Talk about envigorated!

It's a drabble for The Good Wife.

Actually, it was kinda painful *g* I had to force myself to write it, and when I read the drabble, it does feel a bit forced. But the less I write, the harder it is to do it, so I had to take action. That said, managing to complete it... it did feel great.

I was just about to ask what fandom you were writing in, and here is my answer! Yah you! :)

I don't know if you're watching it but, for the record, it's a good show. Just saying *g*

Haha, just let people be wrong about the decade thing. They can't add.

LOL, I'm not sure I'm able to do that *g*

Moi aussi, je serais curieuse de savoir sur quoi tu as écrit, du coup. ;)

Et, heu... Moi ces histoires de fin de siècle, truc machin, j'ai jamais rien bité, les chiffres ça m'embrouille (c'est parce que j'ai des ovaires, c'est bien connu), et surtout, je m'en tamponne complètement.
Mais connaissant ta précision (tu dois pas être une vraie fille, c'est pas possible), je te crois. :)

C'est un 'tit truc pour The Good Wife.

Meuh non, c'est tout simple : tout part du fait que le petit Jésus (... t'es toujours là ?) est né en l'an 1 de notre ère. Il n'y a pas d'année zéro parce que, avant d'être né, comment dire, il n'était pas né. On passe sur le fait qu'en réalité, le type est sans doute arrivé vers 6 avant J.-C. (Oui, ça m'amuse d'écrire qu'il est né avant d'être officiellement né *dent*). Ensuite tu comptes : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 et - pour arriver à dix ans, soit une décennie - 10.

tu dois pas être une vraie fille, c'est pas possible
Je sais allumer un ordinateur et je comprends mêmes les explications pour monter les meubles Ikea (ou assimilé), tu te rends compte ?

le petit Jésus (... t'es toujours là ?)

Ah ben non ! *dent*

YES.

I had this argumentconversation with my husband while we were driving this afternoon. A decade is ten years, not nine. Sheesh.

Ah! This contradicts what the young lady above was saying, that she doesn't get it because she can't count since she's a woman and everybody knows women can't count (don't mind her, she was being ironic) ;-)

*high fives you* We may reach a round number, it doesn't mean it's a new decade.

Right, this decade-thing is annoying - again! I tend tend to roll my eyes when I stumble over yet another 'tribute-show' on the radio or telly and think to myself we could celebrate the end of a decade anytime we want. There is always a decade ending, just depends on when you start counting... meh!

Whatever, a BIG yay for writing! :D

PS: I like your cute plot bunny *g*
Clair de Luneclair_de_lune on December 31st, 2009 04:01 pm (UTC)
You definitely have a point *nods* And if it's about the symbolic end of the decade - as in first decade of the century/millenium... they're wrong anyway (why, yes I'm stubborn *g*)

The icon is cute, isn't it? It was made by burgundy_shoes ♥ I used to have a plot bunny icon with Michael and decided it was time to change it *gasps*
