Okay, 2017 posting challenge, here we come! (Are you joining me? Check out my original posts at LJ and DW. I'm offering drabbles/double drabbles for infrequent posters like me who manage 17 posts in 2017.)

Flist, I'm slightly overwhelmed. It's not as bad as the first year or two of teaching, when every day presented an existential crisis: can I really do this? I can. But between the commute and some very time-consuming committee work this year, it feels like I'm always juggling one more ball than I can really manage. I'm late with everything, and I hate being late.

Also, I feel like I should be out there in front of Congress or the White House or something every single day. I keep telling myself that we all need to pace ourselves, live to fight another day, but the sense of immanent freaking catastrophe never really goes away.

Okay. Sorry. I'm going to set aside my complaints and political fears for something light: celebrity photos. I don't usually pay much attention to celebrities and don't usually find strangers very attractive...but I think I have a tiny crush on Viola Davis.

Don't you feel a bit better now? (I'm a little weak in the knees.)

Flist, do you have a favorite photo of a favorite celebrity? Post, please! Distract us from everything else on the internet right now.

That is a lovely smile. Any smile that makes you automatically smile in response is a great thing on a Monday (over here).

Refusing to take my shower, actually, because that really spells the end of the weekend.

Hee. Oh, I know that feeling. I did the whole "refusing to do my clothes washing" because that felt too much like bringing on the work week. (Instead, I'll do it tonight. No biggie.)

(I leave the internet for two seconds, and I miss the good news on the US travel ban and you writing again.

Hee. Can't turn your back on teh internet, clearly. (TBH, I hadn't noticed the travel ban news because I general avoid real life news. But that's great to hear.)

What a gorgeous smile! I couldn't help but smile too.

Alas, I have no favourite celebrity smiling photos, but I hope a baby chinchilla will suffice! (Seriously, I might have squeaked when I first saw this wee one.) :-D

omg bb chinchilla
