I wonder if the Jared Leto craze has worn off yet...  
I've had someone approach me about continuing an Alexander the Great story I started writing two years ago. I know all too well how frustrating it is to find a story that I truly enjoy that the author won't ever finish. I'm considering going ahead and finishing it, if just because it was never meant to be longer than three or four chapters, anyway. And really, if I want to be a writer, I had better get used to finishing my work.

My biggest complaint was that the fandom consisted mainly of Jared Leto, Alexander fans. People who made Hephaestion act just a little (meaning a lot) too pathetic. The guy was a general. A diplomat. Alexander the Great's second-in-command! He was quite capable of sticking up for himself without Alexander's help.


Also, I really think I'm coming down with something. I've been headachey, stomachachey, tired, apetite-free for the past few days. But it's not at the point where I can justify sleeping all day. (I got things I need to do!) And I think about my sister, who get's the man cold, despite shrugging off cuts, burns and once even inhaling a small piece of hot glass. I'm exactly the opposite: I'll moan and groan about a cut, but viruses just don't bother me much.

Either way, I have to keep taking care of myself. It's strange that, out of all the things I don't like taking the time to do, it's eating. I love good food, and I am willing to do what it takes--cooking, namely--to be able to have it. But sometimes the effort it takes to find something to eat just feels like such a waste of time when I have so many other, more productive things to do.


Lastly, I've mentioned before that I've been considering changing my username. That I haven't been "Miss Teacakes" since I was sixteen. I have been thinking about it; I sort of wanted to go with something Latin, seeing what a classicist I am--I'm the one who is likely to name her daughter Calliope, or something equally Greco-Roman, after all.

Anyway, I recently revealed to my tiny Latin class that my middle name is Avis. I was named after my grandmother, who is the daughter of a classicist, herself. My classical studies professor thought that was cool. He told me that I am an "'avis rara' indeed." Hmm....
