Thesis update: 8.5k words in - it sounds pathetic given that many of you could probably come up with that in a few hours (though I doubt you have to pause in the middle of a sex scene to trawl PubMed and find that paper that supports the rimming in it) but for me that's pretty decent! And they are good words, or will be once I take out the billion unnecessary commas. Introduction is nearly done and in a week or so I can get started on those results chapters I've been dreading. I can't shake the feeling that it's just too easy - surely writing a thesis is supposed to be far more unpleasant than this? Well, suppose there's still plenty more time for that to happen. At some point I am likely to post my "why writing a thesis is like taking a long reluctant poop" essay, but I promise I will warn you all beforehand so you can defriend me and never have to see it (I'm not kidding, I've put a lot of thought into this).

One unexpected side effect of thesis writing: I want to draw ALL the things, though this is actually a good thing because it takes my mind off everything in the evenings. My enthusiasm for anything complex and time-consuming is limited, so I've been churning out simple quick things and posting them to Tumblr as I go along. Here they are...

Well, I thought I'd be starting this post with a lengthy grumble about how much I hate Tumblr as a place to post my fanart, but then a silly little rare-pair drawing of mine got found by the awesome person who wrote the story that inspired it and it seemed to make them happy, and that made me giddy as anything. So perhaps I will not burn my Tumblr blog to the ground this week.

And then I thought I'd rant about the ridiculous shit that's going on at work with the labsibling, but then I had a drink, bitched to twitter, and spent a few days reassuring myself that a) my supervisor is on my side and b) the twat has only harmed himself and I'm better off not being friends with someone who's capable of such a shitty thing.

So instead you get art, which is so much better than having to listen to me whine, isn't it?

How the part of my brain responsible for summoning up enthusiasm for drawing works:

Have 2 weeks (mostly) off work, no obligations and weather too miserable to venture outside: should we draw? NO. SLEEPING UNTIL NOON AND DRAGON AGE FOREVER.

Have crazy exhausting flustered two weeks, in the lab at weekends, dealing with a huge experiment and not sleeping terribly well because of it: YES TIME TO DRAW DRAW DRAW DRAW!!!

I am not sure this is the best way to go about things. Anyway, art! I felt a bit rusty after the endless days marathoning Dragon Age (man, this would totally be my new fandom if the fandom weren't so spectacularly wanky), so did another palette meme over on Tumblr. I probably should have had a think about whether I actually liked these colours before going for it because ew, they're not great and the lack of contrast made me rage, but I suppose that makes it a challenge.
