marenzi: ([RPS] Epic Love Story)

up on dry land by [ profile] ampersands. Jared/Jensen. PG. Things have been ending for a while now.

NON-AU POST-SPN J2 ROAD TRIP. UNF YES. When it's well-written, this is pretty much my bulletproof kink, and this author handles it so, so beautifully. The atmosphere is incredible and her boys are so comfortable with each other. Actually, though, the thing that absolutely grabbed me was Jared's description of what it meant to be Texan. I know this 'good ol' Texas boys' angle has been played ad nauseum, but it was wrenching and it made me homesick. I love the writing style and will definitely be following the author's work.

Remember how I lent SPN S1 to one of our pastry chefs? (In retrospect, calling her pastry chef L was monumentally stupid, since there's only two and both of their names start with L. GOOD JOB, KATE. I need to think up clever names for coworkers.) She loves it because "each episode's like a different horror movie" and now she thinks our other pastry chef will love it too. And "the actors are pretty good, even if they have effed-up names. Padawhat?" I am doing good work, people.

I have an unexpected surprise!weekend today & tomorrow, since they need me to work crazy hours Saturday through Monday to make up for one of the pastry chefs being gone. Mmmph yay sleeping in. ♥

You know, everyone always laughs over Jared's unpronounceable last name, but, like... IT IS PERFECTLY PHONETICALLY COMPREHENSIBLE! Maybe I just have more practice in seeing long words and breaking them into syllables (I spent two summers teaching reading and comprehension skills to kids, so I KNOW ME some syllable breaking and my phonemic awareness is pretty flashy), but, like. Pad-a-lec-ki.

HAHA. Maybe this will some day be my embarrassing thing to blurt out in front of Jared! "HI JARED I LOVE YOU YOU ARE SO PRETTY WANT A DIET COKE ALSO I THINK YOUR NAME IS PERFECTLY PHONEMICALLY PLAUSIBLE!!!<3"

AGREED. Her confusion probably also stemmed from the way I slur it together in excitement, much like "OMFGthere'sthisguyJaredPadaleckiandheisamazing!1". My favorite mispronunciation (outside of fandom) has to be 'Puh-dallick-y' with a long a, because he sounds like such a hick. ♥

LAUGHING SO HARD at the idea of you becoming Jared's crazy phonetics-obsessed fan! Jensen has the wedding dress girls, but Jared gets the English types.
