It's that time of the year again. I actually managed to drop my stocking off in a reasonable amount of time this year! But then I forgot to write about it. So. If you haven't wandered over to fandom_stocking
, you've got until the 18th to sign up
. I'm looking forward to getting to fill some stockings.
I'm in a bit of a Hobbit mood, as of late. And I'm gobbling up lady!Bilbo stories at a fast rate. (Part of this, I think, is that I really dislike Martin Freeman as a person, even though I do think he did a good job as Bilbo in the Hobbit. I am so conflicted. But when it's lady!Bilbo, I can pretend she's anyone! Although one such story I read fancasted her as Angel Coulby, which. Nnf. Yes. Please. There's a lot of Angel Coulby in vaguely Tolkien-esque clothes, too - I think she was in Merlin, maybe? (I haven't seen Merlin.) So that makes it even easier for her to slide into my imagination.) So basically, my stocking declares ALL THE LADY BILBO PAIRINGS because I want to see her paired with every dwarf, please and thank you. There's also a smattering of rarer fandoms, though I left off Supernatural this time. My stocking is here
I've also been baking a lot. A holiday party had some spritz cookies, and they were remarkably delicious and filled with nostalgia. So I came home and dug out my press, and started with spritz cookies, and then just continued. I've ended up making lots of little cookie plates for my neighbors (which is a first, for this neighboorhood!) and some for friends and lots for family. I'd be tempted to send some of them off in the mail, but I don't think they'll keep very well....
