... I ordered an Oyster Mushroom Growing Kit?

This makes me ridiculously happy. It hasn't arrived yet; sometime this week.

Blah blah

It is still way too warm here, but we're supposed to have a real cool front either Tuesday night or Wednesday, I can't remember which. In the meantime, Layla has been enthusiastically enjoying her encounters with the young opossum I've written about previously, who apparently DOES live in one of our neighbor's yards and has been making an appearance almost every night. Layla barks joyfully, the possum freezes on top of the (wooden) fence, great noise and jumping about is had, I tell Layla to come inside NOW, Layla is pleased as punch at having done her job.

We have been watching the new Ken Burns/Lynn Novick documentary, The Vietnam War, and oh my god I will be glad when it is over. It is a brutal, brutal series, brilliantly done, packed with eyewitness accounts and video. I know the broad outlines of the war, but I was only 10 years old in 1968 so almost all of the details are new to me. Something that did make me smile just a little was the discovery that Robert McNamara's son Craig essentially ended up becoming an organic farmer. Swords into ploughshares, indeed.

I am almost finished reading Lev Grossman's The Magician King. As soon as I'm done I will order the last volume in the trilogy. Reader, I am loving this series so much. :D

If House were homeless...

Srsly posted about homeless characters here.  It got me to thinking.  Also writing a bit, but that's not what this is about.  If House were at a low enough point to be homeless but not low enough for suicide, would he do things for himself like busk or practice medicine (like, without a license)? Or would he refuse to use those skills?  What do you think?

I'm taking a break from posting until I finish a writing project. Hopefully it won't take me too long. Lots of House/Wilson love when I come back!

House: We’re missing something. This is screwed up.

Wilson: That’s why you came up with the brain talking to the virus thing?

House: I panicked, ok? Sounded cool though, they bought it.

 I'm around, reading here more days than not, but life is, well, the usual. Classes, art-making, calling Senators and begging them not to kill citizens in order to give tax breaks to billionaires. You know. All that stuff. 

And I have another class in an hour so I do have to go. And then dog-and-horse-sitting through Tuesday morning. How are y'all?

Over at our sister site, House Wilson Requests & Recs there was an inquiry about a specific homeless story, "In from the Cold" by Genagirl ": https://www.squidge.org/housefanfiction/archive/13/infrom.html 
 
What a treat to read it once again! And, it got me thinking... 

How about exploring the general theme with a post? Soooo *drumroll* here it is!

Please jump in with:
Any House-Wilson recs where either House or Wilson are homeless. 
New drabbles, one sentence, or six word stories..
Longer stories. They're guaranteed to be greeted like a prodigal son, but due to size, feel free to link to your site or post as a separate entry.

Wilson: You reading your patient's blog?

House: Nope.

Wilson: [sitting] You should. Could be some clues.

House: Too many. Be like doing a whole body scan. Send us up eight blind alleys. That's why Chase is doing it.

Wilson: She mentions you.

House: She's never met me.

Wilson: You're an unseen presence, like the Wizard of Oz.

House: He was a fraud. She couldn't have gone with Keyser Soze? Speaking of movies that don't make any sense, I stopped at the rental store to get those pornos back. I told the guy at the counter I was so grateful that you'd returned them, but I wanted them. Guess what. You only returned two. You lost the third. It's decent of you to pay for it, not let them put it on my bill.

Wilson: You know... I can explain what happened.

House: I'm sure you could. But rather than listen to your lies, I thought it'd be more fun to drive all over town and get another copy. [smiles smugly]

Wilson: You have – you have it here?

[House makes a big show of hitting a button on his keyboard. Suggestive music starts playing. House’s shoulders start moving with the music. Wilson springs from his chair and goes behind the desk to look. House looks at Wilson while Wilson looks at a scene of people, wearing animal skins and antlers, dancing around a fire.]

Wilson: Oh, God. [The person nearest the camera turns. It’s a very young Wilson.] Oh, God! Okay, first, that's not me. It's not – mostly not – [He starts again.] I was – I was in college. [Young Wilson moves toward and then past the camera, smiling.] I don't – my roommate was minoring in film.

House: Are you hyperventilating? Remember that covering your mouth and one nostril can help.

Wilson; [pointing at the screen] He had to get this in for some grade, [on screen, the antlered Wilson peers out from behind a tree then heads for Moon Woman, who is lying on the ground] and he was desperate. And the only reason I did it was because no one would ever see it. Who knew he'd become an actual director?

House: He's not a director. He's an artist. The way he plays with light and darkness and… [Young Wilson puts his arm around the girl] boobs.

[On screen, Moon Woman is in Wilson’s arms. Only their torsos can be seen. As they turn away from the camera, Wilson has become another “actor” who barely looks like him.]

Wilson: That's not me.

Moon Woman: What are you? Where are you taking me?

Not-Wilson: Be not afraid. The forest nymphs have taught me how to please a woman.

Wilson: [desperate] That's not me. That's not – I mean, you can see it's not me. He added extra scenes so he could release it as a porno.

[Moon Woman is lying on the ground with her robe spread open. She wears a very modern bra. Not-Wilson leans over her, blocking the view.]

House: Be not afraid, Wilson. You took risks for your art.

Wilson: [sighing] Oh, boy. [He starts to leave. House continues watching the video, intently. At the door, Wilson turns back.]

Wilson: No one – Hey, look at me – No one can know about this.

House: From this moment on, my lips are sealed.

Put together this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cake today (from the Washington Post). Followed the instructions except for sifting the flour and spices together -- just took it out of the oven and it smells delicious. :D

We must have an opossum in residence close by -- Layla treed a youngster both last night and this morning in the backyard, scaring the bejeebers out of the little guy both times.

Currently reading Jay McInerney's The Good Life, sequel to Brightness Falls and the middle book in his "New York trilogy" (I've noticed some people calling it his "Yuppie trilogy," heh). It's a good read, but omg these characters do not talk like normal people talk. Before this I read Neil Gaiman's American Gods. I had read it once, years and years ago, but I heard Gaiman had restored something like 12K words to a new edition. It was interesting to see how the book did or did not follow the first season of the TV show, and how a few scenes had been transferred to TV virtually unchanged. I enjoyed it a lot -- two thumbs up, would recommend.

W homeless story?

I am not sure I'm doing this right... I want to post a request for a HW fan-fiction, is this the right way? Anyway, I am looking for a history where Wilson was homeless (?) and House takes him home and they live together for a while, then later Wilson tells him that he had divorced and was accused of stealing (?) by Vogler (W was an accountant I guess)... not really sure about the details, but this was the gist of it. Does it ring a bell? Thanks!
