I'm in the Boston area this week and next week dog- and house-sitting for an old friend, and I'd completely forgotten that New England can be this nice in June. Sunny, mild, blue skies, riotous gardens, so lovely. Dog days, indeed...

The neighborhood I'm staying in much the same neighborhood I lived in when I was a grad student here about ten years ago or so, and I'm shocked at how much it's gentrified. Where's all this money coming from?

The dog I'm staying with is a little white thing, a Westie, very sweet, very cute, with a vicious sense of ownership over my time and attention--I can't get on the phone or leave the house without setting her off barking. Is this a terrier thing? I've never had a dog before, so I'm a bit at sea. I'm pretty sure she knows she's competing with the other people in my life. (She's much the same way with my friend.) Fascinating.

On a fannish note, has anyone been following [archiveofourown.org profile] splix's Method Act? I'm not even sure how I found it or started following, but I'm climbing the walls with impatience for the next chapter.

And [livejournal.com profile] lgbtq_recs is still going strong! Today [livejournal.com profile] tjs_whatnot recced Torchsong Trilogy....

ETA: By the way, there's a great, thoughtful discussion on why we ship what we ship over at [livejournal.com profile] pennswoods's journal. There's no real answer to this kind of question, of course, but the comments are fascinating. Fandom and fanfic so clearly do something real and important for so many of us, and I love hearing about how that works.
