A Drabble Has Eaten My Life

So, Mondayish, I started on this SGA fic that I just could not get out of my head and, as such, had to write. It was intended only to be a drabble, maybe a ficlet - no more than 1000 words - and how it's grown into a massive thing of almost 6k. With the exception of the ending, it's just come pouring out too. But I think I've finally got the ending together, but still. Wow. It's a cancerous drabble. Or one on crystal meth. One of the two.

But, in other news, my knee was finally cooperating enough to go to the gym yesterday, and today I'm so sore it's rediculous. So I went swiming while my brother was at PT today, and, well, I think it might've done more harm than good, even if I did soak in the whirlpool for a lifetime after. And I totally destroyed my iPod. Well, rice might be able to save it still, but I suppose that's what I get for trying to watch Netflix while soaking my leg. It's just it hurts so much, and sitting for extended periods in hot water gets boring after a while. Even if it has jets.

What else? I finally found a store in this county that sells hummus, so that bizzare craving has finally been satisfied.

Oh, and this:

/^\(?(\d{3})\)?[- ]?(\d{3})[- ]?(\d{4})$/;

was written on the board in my javascript class today, with complete and utter seriousness behind it. I still cannot tell you how it works, or what any of the symbols but \d mean, but I can tell you it is javascript code for validating US telephone numbers. For real.

Hi, actually it's a regular expression to validate phone numbers. It will work in many other languages besides javascript. You could take up a whole semester just studying regular expressions.

Enjoying the ancient John series.
Javascript is not one of my strengths. But the semester is finally over, and I think I passed, so I'm not torn up about it. As long as someone understands it, that's all that matters.
