I know I've ranted about this before, but Womanist Musings just reminded me again. FUCK YOU, INGRID NEWKIRK, YOU FREAKING XENOPHOBIC NUTBAG!

I support the ASPCA and local no-kill shelters, thanks. And hey, guess what? I AM A FAT VEGETARIAN, YOU BITCH!

Man she gets me riled up. LOOK AT THAT BILLBOARD in the article! that just... GRRRR!

~

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days, but I am REALLY not feeling well. Having a sort of minor Crohn's flare up. I suspect it's all the fresh veggies I've been eating lately -- they can be hard to digest. But how am I supposed to resist all that crunchy yummy goodness when it comes right out of my land? Or... tables on my porch, anyway. ;)

Anyhow, so I've just kind of been laid up doing mindless things, like playing with my DRAGONS! And hanging around FAcebook -- there's this game called Farmville there that I'm completely addicted to.

Of course, all this down time means that that I've completely lost track of my [community profile] kink_bingo schedule. I'm STILL hoping maybe I can finish a bingo by the 31st (that's nine stories) -- but so far only 2 are done, a 3rd is at the "climax", so I just can't hold my breath on it getting done. *sigh*

Dragons!

Look! BJPinky Adopt one today! and Pam Ravencroft (I know, I spelled it wrong) Adopt one today! HAD A BABY! And here I thought they were BOTH gay!

Adopt one today! YAY!

And here's our very first baby, LilSwirly -- she had a rough couple of days, I was posting her in too many places, which results in too many views, and makes her sick: Adopt one today!

She'll be all grown up soon!

Please pet the other eggs if you get a chance! :D

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Don't forget, you can always visit my permanent dragon pen, click on all KINDS of interesting creatures (I've picked up LOTS of interesting things in my travels!)! http://theantijoss.dreamwidth.org/33482.html#cutid1
theantijoss: I had to have a dragon icon! I'm practically a dragon wrangler! (Misc - Pink Dragon)
And aren't sick of seeing them on my posts every day... :D

As I said, I'll just be posting eggs or reminders from now on, because I've set all my various creatures up in a permanent holding pen:

On Dreamwidth: http://theantijoss.dreamwidth.org/33482.html

On Livejournal: http://theantijoss.livejournal.com/334668.html

On Insanejournal: http://theantijoss.insanejournal.com/282246.html

I also post the eggs twice a day on [livejournal.com profile] the_hatchery if you're a member there.

Phew. I actually have been at this on and off all day while nursing a headache and OMG FRETTING OVER TRUE BLOOD!

Ehem. I'll leave that off until I have something coherent to say. :D

Anyway, for those of you not really into the dragon thing, but who have been following the ONGOING AS THE DRAGONS DO... STUFF:

You may remember that TBJessica lowered herself to allow Big Swirly to mate with her, and they produced an egg. Well, here she is! TADA!

Adopt one today! + Adopt one today! = LILSWIRLY NICJESSICA Adopt one today!

I know it's a dumb name, but I want to make sure any hatchlings reflect their heritage. YAY! Give her a pat if you like!

Looks like Little Pastel Cloudy is about to hatch too! Adopt one today!

And now I'm off to bed.
theantijoss: (True Blood - Eric Serious)
I enjoy Facebook for a number of reasons -- the primary one that I get to interact with old friends and family members who I might lose track of otherwise. The downside is that I sometimes have to interact with people I never would have interacted with otherwise, and every once in a while someone from my past tries to embroil me in drama. Oh, and if I'm not careful, I'm treated to a detailed blow-by-blow of the LOML and his blissful domestic existence. *gag*

So I got a note this morning from one of my best friends EVER, telling me that she's actually being... I don't know if there's a grown-up word for it! Read more... )

This is going to sound ironic, coming from the basement dwelling, vampire-loving internet geek loser, but GROW THE FUCK UP, PEOPLE. Seriously. We are FORTY YEARS OLD.

Boggles my mind, it seriously does. I'd much rather be lost in my fantasy worlds, thanks very much.

OH NO! This just breaks my heart. RIP Little Dusky. He was being hand raised from birth, bottle and tube fed, slept in an oxygen chamber, but it seemed like he was getting better. I've been following the story closely, daily updates, and to hear he finally passed away is just... So, so sad. *hugs kitties* I feel like one of my own died -- I was really rooting for this little fella.

Wow. Heavy stuff on True Blood tonight! For discussion, stop by [profile] trueblood_squee! I missed a lot of it due to my various sources crapping out, but I got to see the Big Scenes!

One problem with watching TV on the computer is that when my attention wanders, I have to switch away from the screen and only have audio, which I tend to tune out. When the TV is on, I seem to miss less somehow. I wish I could hook up my laptop to the TV -- wirelessly, of course. But only the video part. Like my computer is my cable box, you know? There has to be technology like that out there, doesn't there?

So I finished Season 1 of Legend of the Seeker last night. I want to watch it again IMMEDIATELY, but did anybody else feel like the finale was kind of anti-climactic? I don't know, it seems likeRead more... )

(Okay, yes, I am pathetic, let's get that out of the way up front. I am aware of this, and I don't care.)

JESSICA FINALLY MATED! I decided to give she and Big Swirly a chance to get it on, and THEY DID! LOOK!

Adopt one today!

It's my first baby dragon! I'm so proud. *sniff* I wonder who she'll look like? I'm hoping she'll have green and red and be female so I can name her GAILA! I need to name my bloodline... I should just call it "auDucks". *G*

You know... I think I may be becoming a low-level plebe Trekkie. Because this announcement actually made me SQUEE:

Jane Land's Star Trek NovelsRead more... )

I should probably qualify that I'm more a Feminist/Female-Centered Trekkie -- I'm more interested in the female characters than the males. Not that I don't love Spock and Jimmy T. and the other boys on the bridge, but my heart lies with Gaila, Uhura, Chapel, poor misused Yeoman Rand and Number One.

ANYway, if that made you as excited as it did me (I downloaded them both. I don't care, I'll lug my laptop to bed with me to read them!), you can find the links toward the bottom of the Open Doors Project here: http://opendoors.transformativeworks.org/. They also have an awesome collection of vintage Kirk/Spock slash from the 70's, if that's more your thing!

See, this is why OTW is so important! They're working to give fannish history a permanent home so it can't disappear like so many of our great sites did in Buffy fandom. Drop by and see how you can help!

Copied from [personal profile] spiralleds:

liz_marcs has a post here that will direct you to one of two posts. One is asking for American's experiences with insurance as the system currently exists. The other is asking for those to live in countries with socialized medicine to share their experiences. Share if you can share on either side. And even if you don't have someone to share/don't want to share, it's an eye opening read.

PLEASE LEARN WHAT THE HELL YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT FROM SOMEONE BESIDES RUSH FUCKING LIMBAUGH BEFORE YOU GO RUNNING AROUND SHOWING HOW FUCKING IGNORANT YOU ARE ABOUT THE ISSUE. Kthxbai.

Diversity Icon Meme -- I thought this was interesting. (These are my LJ icons, not DW)

Total # of Icons: 118
# Icons Featuring Female Characters Alone: 15
# Icons Featuring Male Characters Alone: 26
# Icons Featuring Het Pairings (friends or romance): 16
# Icons Featuring F/F Pairings (friends or romance): 6
# Icons Featuring M/M Parigins (friends or romance): 8
# Icons Featuring Mixed Gender groups of 3 or more: 9
# Icons Featuring People/Characters of Color (GAILA DOESN'T COUNT): 17
# Icons Featuring Women of Color (AGAIN, GAILA DOESN'T COUNT): 11

Some counted in more than one category. The rest were divided between text, animals, and symbolic icons. Although only 17 of 118 of my icons feature people/characters of color (which is embarassing), at least the majority of those include WOMEN of color.

Anyway, food for thought.

I lost my shoes, missed the bus, and had to get a ride home with the latter in his Lamborghini (which, uh, he so doesn't have. Although he had a sports car once upon a time. He used to be such a label conscious yuppie.). Oh, and former wanted to go dancing, but only at a "rainbow kind of place." Dudes... WTF?

theantijoss: (Misc - I feel stabbity today)
I'm very sad to say this, but I think my involvement in True Blood fandom may not be long for this world. The ship wars are heating up, and I'm sick to fucking DEATH already of "OMG BILL/SOOKEH AND OOH THEY'RE GETTING MARRIED IN REAL LIFE!" And "I'm so glad blah blah blah because I don't like the books/I love the books/I hate the show/I love the show. ERICBILLERICBILLERICBILL." BLARGH.

I did this fucking go round once already, and I'm not doing it again. I honestly could care LESS about Bill or Sookie, actually. If they went away and left the rest of the cast, I'd be perfectly happy. I don't hate the characters, but man am I starting to not like their fans. This whole sensation is so deja vu, I'm thinking about dropping all my True Blood communities before the bs completely ruins the show for me. And there is NOTHING worse than a creator who fucking contradicts himself every other time he talks. Been THERE, done THAT and REALLY not interested in doing it again. I'd prefer what I WANT, not what I NEED when it comes to my entertainment, thanks. Either tell the fucking truth or keep your mouth fucking shut.

I also think I'm going to make a rule at [profile] trueblood_squee, if I decide to keep it open: NO SHIPPING. Period. Unless it's Jessica/Hoyt (because who doesn't love Jessica/Hoyt). And no Bill vs. Eric ANYTHING. I'm fucking sick to death of it already, and we're barely just over halfway through the second season. If you love Bill, GREAT, you can say so WITHOUT BASHING ERIC. Love Eric? AWESOME, you can say THAT without dissing Bill. It's fucking annoying, people, and take it from me, IT RIPS FANDOMS APART AND MAKES IT REALLY HARD TO ENJOY THE SOURCE MATERIAL.

Man, I am tired and cranky today. Which is weird because I slept so well and with full CPAP gear for a good 9 hours. Plus, the fam has gone off for a week's vacation...somewhere that is NOT HERE. So now I'm going to get tired and sick? But of course.

I'm going to be TWO [community profile] kink_bingo stories behind if I don't finish the ones I'm working on today. Plus rewrites on the first one. Maybe if I take a nap I can get up and do it after True Blood. I'm still on the lookout for kinky beta readers -- [livejournal.com profile] igrockspock has been a pretty good sport about my Star Trek kinky stories (I have one more planned), but I can't really ask her to read kink from other fandoms! So here are the kinks and fandom/pairings planned. If you're interested in beta-ing one or more, let me know.Read more... )

Speaking of fic, I've been slowly putting all of my fic up at Archive of Our Own, if you want to check it out and see what's there so far. And please feel free to send feedback to the programming committee if there's something you'd find easier to use -- they're definitely taking suggestions seriously while still in closed beta!

Supernatural fans!

Wow. This made me really stop and think. Pointed out by [personal profile] wistfuljane. First, check out the beautiful artwork HERE. It's by [livejournal.com profile] vito_excalibur, and it absolutely BLEW my mind.

Now, think about it in terms of [personal profile] thefourthvine's commentary: Because the thing is - there is one thing different in this picture, and it changes everything. Imagine these guys driving through small southern towns in their big black car with all manner of guns. Imagine these guys running credit card scams, and trying to talk their way into strangers' houses, and, you know, the other stuff that Dean and Sam do. (Sorry, we have reached the limit of my osmotic fannish knowledge.) It would be a whole different narrative, I'll tell you that for free.

That's some meta commentary, right there.

And speaking of [personal profile] wistfuljane and racism food for thought, I have been hearing about the racist casting of The Last Airbender, but I hadn't SEEN it put so succinctly before:

"racebending.com updated their site. One update is their casting comparision pictures:


Aang, Katara, Sokka and Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender.


Noah Ringer as Aang, Nicola Peltz as Katara, Jackson Rathbone as Sokka and Dev Patel as Zuko from The Last Airbender.

Another is their petition: Join the Boycott: Aang can stay Asian and still save the world."

To know about it and think it shocking is one thing -- to see it like that is... o_O Whut? It's bad enough that the heroes have been completely whitewashed, but worse still is that the VILLAIN is being played by a person of color! WTF is that shit?

FAIL, Hollywood. Again.

In happier news, I have a new hero! OMG she is so awesome -- Kahlan Amnell from Legend of the Seeker. She is BADASS, dudes. Ain't no damseling going on here, either. I am just LOVING Legend of the Seeker. Denna the Dominatrix is another favorite. And HEY! I knew I recognized Darken Rahl (the villain) -- he was Haldir in Lord of the Rings!

Well, I'm finally going to check out Harry Potter tomorrow. I've got a bunch of errands to run later in the afternoon (HELLO new painkiller esp. for that special time of the month!), so I figure if I go to the early matinee, that will leave me plenty of time. It's funny, I heard kind of neutral-positive things about it, but no real squee, so... *shrug* I'm not always a huge fan of the movies as entities unto themselves anyway. I remember especially with GoF, thinking that the story was so holey, so convinced that every viewer had already read the books, that I swear anyone who hadn't would be completely lost.

But it's a tradition for me to see them in the theaters, and with only one more left, I shall continue said tradition with honor! Or... you know, snacks I snuck in.

I'm sort of building my own network of shows I want to catch up on, watching an episode or two every day.

I know a lot of friends on my FList watch them, and I'm wondering what you recommend. My entire experience with the genre includes Vampire Hunter D and Spirit or... Ghost?

I don't know why, but BOY am I tired today. I don't think I slept very well last night, and then with the hormone rush today, I'm ready to go to bed at 8:30 pm. I mean, there's nothing stopping me FROM going to bed now, I just don't want to. I still have to work on the [community profile] kink_bingo story for today. It's getting toward the end, but I just don't know if I have it in me. So to speak. *G* I don't want to get into the habit of not meeting the every other day deadlines, because I'll never catch up if I do. Plus, I'm doing rewrites on the one I finished yesterday, on which the awesome [livejournal.com profile] igrockspock gave me some really helpful notes that will make the story a lot better in the end.

Okay, guys. It's August 1. I'm looking at my commitments and buckling down for some serious writing.

The big one on my mind right now is [community profile] kink_bingo -- bingos are due by August 31. I have THIRTY days to finish a bingo. I have a 9 story bingo planned, plus a 5 story double line and a one story postage stamp. That's FIFTEEN kinky stories in thirty days. That means TWO kinky stories a day, minimum 500 words each.

Think I can do it? I mean, I know I can write 500 words a day, but can I write 500 words a day that anyone will want to READ? (You would ask this question too if you saw my NaNo manuscript from last year.)

What I would love to do (after I finish bingos within the alloted time) is do black-outs (all the kinks on the card) for Gaila and B/A. Wouldn't it be fun to see if I could get 25 kinky B/A stories? I'll never have time for it, but a girl can dream.

ANYWAY... FIFTEEN Stories. THIRTY days. That is my challenge. It would, unfortunately, make a very, very boring reality show.

~

Hahahaha. Speaking of [community profile] kink_bingo, I downloaded one of the soundtracks they offered, and I'm right now listening to the AWESOME Dr. Hook's "Freaking at the Freaker's Ball". I fucking LOVE this song. So does my dad -- he's a huge Dr. Hook fan. He used to play this song when I was a KID. I mean, I didn't know what it meant, but there I was, 9 years old, singing about masochists and necrophiliacs and smearing someone with butter. LOL. No wonder I'm so weird!

~

Watching the first episode of The Legend of the Seeker. I've read the first four or five of the books, and I have to say, the series is a LOT easier to follow. LOL. I love the books, but man are they dense and complicated. This show is more like... Wizard's First Rule meets Hercules: The Legendary Journies. I'm okay with that. One thing they have in common? Kahlan is BAD ASS.

Okay, back to work. Gaila and Kirk are waiting. *G*

I mean, the sexism and racism is icky, but I bet still better than most shows of it's day. Or so I imagine, since there are people of color on there AT ALL, and women in uniform (skimpy though it may be, they're officers), and my knowledge of TV in the 60's is pretty limited to this and Batman.

DRAGONS!

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

You're supposed to be my friend! :(

HOT DRAGON ACTION! Or, er... actually, not.

Adopt one today! (BJPinky) Adopt one today! (TBJessica)

So I decided, since Jessica is all grown up (and we all know that females should have BABIES, as this is their only purpose in life!), I should breed her. And guest commentator [livejournal.com profile] frozenproduce suggested mating her with one of my pink fellas. Well, I mean, they're cute pink dragons with tidy wings and large show tune collections, so you can probably guess what happened. I introduced Pinky and Jessica, and they.... went "meh." And absolutely no Dragon Smexing whatsoever took place. *Sigh* Now I have to wait another day and try with Rosey. Maybe he'll "Show interest" in her?

Tune in tomorrow for AS THE DRAGONS... er... TURN? FLAP? SPEW FIRE? I dunno.

HAHAHAHA! Check out "The Honeymoon of Dean and Castiel" hahahaahhaahaha.







BWAHHAHAHAHAHAHA.

So... [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle has a poll: Is B/A subversive? Does it subvert itself in canon? And seeing as how her entire FList seems to be Spuffies and B/A negative people, I BEG ONE OF OUR MORE ELOQUENT FANS ([livejournal.com profile] margotlefaye, are you out there? If I had a D Signal, I would flash it at you! And OH HOW I MISS HARPY RIGHT NOW!) TO EXPLAIN WHY B/A IS NOT *insert same old generally dismissive and insulting crap about B/A here*.

Keep your tone polite if you answer. Notice I didn't answer, because my answer would mostly be "OMG PEOPLE STFU! IT'S NOT CLICHE! YOU SEE A LOT OF "HEROINE WITH HERO LOVE INTEREST CONSORT" IN MODERN FICTION DO YOU? SEE TWO HEROES PROPPING EACH OTHER UP WITH (probably impossible) DREAMS OF HOPE, HAVE YOU? ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH! *throws violent tantrum, has heart attack and drops dead* And, I'm not entirely sure what she's even asking to begin with. Or why.

To Subvert (According to Webster's): 1 : to overturn or overthrow from the foundation : ruin; 2 : to pervert or corrupt by an undermining of morals, allegiance, or faith.

The Free Dictionary (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/subversive) has a more salient definition of Subversive: "subversive: Adjective - intended or intending to weaken or overthrow a government or an institution. Noun - a person engaged in subversive activities."

The thesaurus suggests "revolutionary". So... was B/A meant to destroy some fundamental tropes, as so much of what Whedon does is supposed to do? Does it destroy itself? Is it revolutionary?

I'm being a good girl, and coming back here to cry and hyperventilate and get hugs, and PLEADING for one of the many intelligent B/A Shippers on my FLIST to PLEASE offer a balanced view to that B/A hate fest over there. (They are not being mean about shippers, though, which is a nice change.) I had to leave about two comments in, and may not be able to put together a coherent answer besides "NO! WTF?" And so.

*breathes deep yoga breaths*

(Here's a puzzler: why is a Spuffy asking an Flist full of Spuffies if B/A is subversive in the first place? Don't answer that, it's just a little thought in my head.) (And hey, WHY HAVE I STILL NOT LEARNED NOT TO CLICK LINKS I KNOW WILL PROBABLY BE NOT-B/A FRIENDLY? IT'S BEEN TEN YEARS.)

Also, please don't bring up Spuffy in the discussion -- [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle specifically asked people not to. It's also lame to bash another ship just to pump up your own, and not what the discussion needs.

I'm going to go throw up now.

You know what brought me down (or "up," I guess) AGAIN? Star Trek. I'm watching the Original Series for the first time in decades -- including the original pilot, which I've never seen before, and my blood pressure is back down, and I've just kind of... let that annoyance earlier go. Does this speak of the calming power of Star Trek? My continued over-investment in shows that have been off the air for years? Both?

Anyway -- I'm sad in a different way now. #1 in the original pilot was AWESOME. And an officer. And there's actually some surface level touching on sexism. There was an Asian fella in the transporter room! Roddenbury said in the intro that one of the reasons the original pilot was not produced was because it wasn't "cast sensibly" = too many non-whites.

Which leads me to think about IBARW and an essay I read today: Nyota Uhura is Not a White Girl or "now that we've got that clear, and you know that i'm not here..." by [livejournal.com profile] rawles. It's excellent food for thought, and a good explanation for why every time I hear someone say the word "post-racial", I want to kick them. (I'm trying to keep my temper down, because I'm dizzy! From the high blood pressure that I totally don't have! Oh, man, I'm having a total breakdown. Or else one of these new meds is making me more batshit than usual.")

Help me Original Trek (even-though-your-flaws-are-glaring-you-were-making-real-inroads-for-your-time)! Help me!

Or better yet, my beautiful, wonderful friends of all fandoms and ships and preferred characters and philosophies and temperments. I need some recs. Happy recs. Porny recs. Gaila recs. What I would love:

Porny, HEA Recs from any current fandom: True Blood, Supernatural (Dean/Castiel), Gossip Girl (Chuck/Blair or Blair/Serena), Merlin, Being Human, Star Trek XI, Kradam, and of Course, Buffy/Angel (B/A positive ONLY, please)
Eric Northman recs
Gaila/Uhura, Gaila/Kirk, or just Gaila recs (especially these -- I'm collecting links in my Delicious.
Fluffy Being Human fic (OT3 or Mitchell/Annie)
*Happy B/A or B/A Meta.*


Or write me some drabbles! Or post funny gifs. Something!

For those of you who are new to the madness that is Ducks, Tuesday is my BAD DAY. It was back when I used to work full time, and it has yet to redeem itself since. I call Tuesday my Bane. I HATE Tuesday.

Okay, that's a little dramatic. Today was just kind of bleh. But still, it's TUESDAY'S FAULT.

Hahahaha. Okay, as it turns out, sLut the Magic Dragon is a male. And so, his name will therefore be James T. Kirk. Say hello, James! (Actually, it's JimmyTKirk, because some actual Trekkie beat me to James T.)

Adopt one today!

MEME! I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] bradeatspeeps, who would be the first person I would tag, and so now I have to rethink MY tag list, dammit!

First: If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new question.

Second: Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

Everybody's so busy lately! I tag [livejournal.com profile] vivier, [livejournal.com profile] fangbanger4eric, [livejournal.com profile] goddessrockgeek, [livejournal.com profile] little_linds, [livejournal.com profile] lunar47, [livejournal.com profile] stormiejs, [livejournal.com profile] lizardjee, and [livejournal.com profile] ragdolll.

My full time job for the past couple of days has become AVOIDING any and all posts about the Supernatural and True Blood Panels at ComiCon. I do not want to be spoiled for the rest of this season of TB AT ALL, so if you saw it in that video clip, or heard it in the panel, please don't mention it around me or on [livejournal.com profile] trueblood_squee without AMPLE warning! Please. *G*

Of course, I'm very generally spoiled about Supernatural (vague season direction, casting, etc. I know there are Read more... ) but I don't know the details. With SPN, I don't mind so much getting a little spoiled -- it's the journey that's fun. But with True Blood, baby, I will EAT YOUR FACE if you spoil me. The shocks, twists and turns on this show are half the fun (the other half being my favorite characters, of course. Hi Eric! Hi!).

Anyway. /whine

Ugh. Did I say I was done whining? Because apparently, I'm not. I went to my two doctors' appointments today, and have MORE medication I have to take and MORE tests that have to be run, none of which have anything to do with my current Crohn's issues. It was 80 billion degrees with 500 percent humidity out today, and when I got home, I took my new nasal spray (which seems to really work, btw), and now I am ZOMBIE LIKE. I wanted to get some writing done or SOMETHING, but... I just don't see it happening. I should at least scrawl down some words, I can fill out the flesh tomorrow.

But man, who thought a nasal spray could make you all bablbalbalblalblblbl? (It's Astepro, for anybody who's curious.) I'll spare you more Medical TMI until I have something definite to share.

Now that they're all grown up, I want to consider mating. The only female is Jessica, the first red. Should I mate her with one of the pink guys, or Swirly, the green guy, or her own kind, sLutty JimmyT?

LJ's Question of the Day: From Dr. Polidori's Lord Ruthven to Stephenie Meyer's Edward Cullen, the annals of vampire lore are filled with attractive, charming bloodsuckers. Which one would you most want to be bitten by?

Okay, everybody knows that one. Actually, I've made a few new friends lately *waves to new friends*, so how about a newly revised TOP TEN HOT VAMPIRES WHO DUCKS WOULD LIKE TO BANG WOULDN'T MIND BEING BITTEN BY?Read more... )

Seriously, I could go on and on and on forever without ever including a Twilight vampire. The father Cullen is kind of cute, but... the fact that nobody in that town ever notices how FREAKING WHITE he is just... throws me out of the fantasy. Oh, and I could make a top ten list of Sherrilyn Kenyon vampires alone, even though they're not really "vampires" per se (but they totally are).

Okay, I'm going to have to do a Top 20, I think. 11-20 Vampires that can bite me. *G* )

Man, I loves me some vampires.

Hahahaha. This little dragon bugger:

Adopt one today!

Her code is "sLUT". That is SO going to be her name somehow.

~

I am SO happy! I was laboring and laboring and TORTURING myself trying to get my Kris Allen/Alan Lambert RPF done for today, which originally was supposed to be the last day to post. The story has stalled about 1/3 of the way through, and I'm working through the mess, but I need at least a couple more days. Well, I just went to go beg for forgiveness, when I discovered that the new posting deadline is JULY 31! W00t!

Oh boy, I hope this excellent day does not count against my two doctors' appointments tomorrow. *sigh*

~

So what did you guys think of True Blood last night? AWESOME, RIGHT? Come over to [livejournal.com profile] trueblood_squee -- I'm dying to get a discussion going!

~

Don't forget, this week is [livejournal.com profile] ibarw - International Blog Against Racism Week! I haven't decided if I'm going to post, or just comment on links I find. It depends on if this DAMN HEADACHE GOES AWAY and I think of something non-faily I want to say.

DRAGONS!

Note to my awesome friends who always pet my babies. Someone mentioned recently that you don't have to click them -- the most important thing is total views. I, uh... don't know what to do about that, but... if you don't mind clicking them, please feel free. I like to pretend I'm petting them.

*sigh*

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Hee. Still laughing over that video two days later. MUDDER FAHKER!

Crap! I missed the awesome [livejournal.com profile] goddessrockgeek's birthday on the 24th. I hope you had a great one, hon!

Also, I wanted to thank whomever nominated my drabble "clock" for the Running With Scissors Award. Thank you so much for thinking of me! *smooch*

From [livejournal.com profile] killerweasel: SDCC '09: Darren Bousman Reveals Repo! Prequel Plans SQUEEEE!

SQUEEEEEE!

Okay, when are we starting the write in campaign to urge Gaila's TOTAL AND COMPLETE NON DEATH on JJ Abrams?

I brought the question over to [livejournal.com profile] teamgaila (actually, someone else brought it first, I just brought it up again) -- hopefully we can get something together! There's already a contest for designing the postcard art going on, if anyone is interested!

Speaking of my green honeypie, this is, at the moment, my very favorite Gaila fic thus far: You're Gonna Make It After All by [livejournal.com profile] igrokspock - it's gen, and stars Gaila, Nyota and Spock, with a hilarious guest starring appearance by James T. Gaila is having a really difficult time figuring out human sexual mores, and by the time she's spent an entire year studying them, she's gained "Two indecent exposure citations, one best friend, one amazing sex partner, one unexpected mentor, and a Starfleet-funded study of intercultural sexual norms." *draws huge, sparkly hearts around this fic*

OMG you guys! Remember that hatchling I thought died? (No you don't, don't lie, you totally don't pay attention to my fake dragon silliness. ;) It's back and its ALL GROWN UP! So now I have TWO Red dragons OMG! And one IS a female! *dances*

Okay, so... What do I do now? LOL

Let's not stop petting the little red one, because if she dies it will be THAT SAME HORROR ALL OVER AGAIN! Ooh, speaking of horror, I'm suddenly in the mood to hit my watch list again. *G*

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Heh. Now Jessica, the LONE female, is looking all shifty eyed at the pack of males hanging out with her.

OH MY GOD I'M GIVING THEM PERSONALITIES! help
