I just read a thread that devolved into people arguing about whether they thought of Robert Downey Jr's dick when they wrote smut.

(Spoilers: Smut writers say no, not thinking about RDJ's dick specifically, just a general dick for smutty purposes. People do not believe this say it's a little like raping RDJ to write about his character having sex because OF COURSE you must think about his dick.)

There were no winners. Except me. Who laughed and laughed.

So on Friday afternoon, I went into my boss's office to discuss some things with her - nothing big, just updates on a few things I was working on. The door was ajar, so I knocked, and she said, "Who is it?" and I said, "Snacky!"* and then she yelled, "No, don't come in, don't come in yet, you can't come in!"

Why, are you looking at porn online? )

*************

The problem with watching Game of Thrones is the same problem I had with reading comics and watching Supernatural: I have to sit through awful shit that I then have to ignore to be able to really enjoy the stuff I do like.

I gave up reading comics a while ago. I stopped watching SPN too. After last week's spoilers )

SHOW. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME.

Here, I like this meme:

Give me a canon. I'll give you two or three of my favourite ships for it.

You can pick canons I know, that would be best. But if you give me one I don't know, I'll work it out with fannish osmosis. ;)

Things are going well at the new job! I keep getting high praise from my new boss, for things that I don't think are particularly deserving of high praise? I don't know, maybe I am just too hard on myself, or maybe my predecessor in this job was kind of incompetent.

Or a combo of both those things. :D

The coworkers I share my office with tell me how my predecessor was always stressed out, crying, and doing things at the last moment. This is unsurprising to me. My goals for this job: be on top of things, and no crying.

*************

Here's a meme, by way of [personal profile] musesfool and [personal profile] bedlamsbard, three random lines from three works-in-progress:

1) Lucy dances like a Faun, sings as sweet as a Dryad, and drinks like a Dwarf.

2) She's not sure where the impulse comes from, but she finds herself saying, "You remind me of a pirate I once knew."

3) "I'd say, 'don't get your jackass self killed' but you'll just ignore me."

*************

I voted last night and got a nice sticker! But one of my candidates lost to the guy who used to run the soft-serve ice cream place in my neighborhood when I was kid. I met the guy while he was campaigning and I was like, "Yes! I remember you, from the Kone Kastle!" He was annoyed by that, and right then, I knew he was not the candidate for me.

DO NOT DENY YOUR ICE CREAM PAST, POLITICIANS! IT WILL COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU!

I didn't know [livejournal.com profile] iamsab as well as many of you, but she was always kind and friendly to me in all our interactions. She was a fantastic writer whose stories entertained and enthralled me, and I am sorry I will never get to read any new works from her. My heart goes out to her family, and all of you who are feeling the loss so keenly.

I can't help but think of all the dear friends I have made through fandom, and the wonderful community I am a part of. It's sad that it takes a loss to remind me.

Fandom's crazy sometimes. But even with all the ups and downs, it's been such a great part of my life. I wouldn't trade my time in fandom, nor any of the people I've had the pleasure of knowing all these years, for the world.

So sad to hear about Elisabeth Sladen.



This is a little more heartbreaking today.

List time

snacky: (yuletide)
1) Yuletide fic is done! Finished, betaed, titled (*g*) and uploaded. HUZZAH! I am ridiculously nervous over it, but at least I am done.

2) Now on to the next fic exchange - I've got a NFFR Secret Santa due. *collapse*

3) Christmas presents are mostly bought. I've got a few more to get on Monday (I am hoping there will be less of a crowd at the stores since many people will still be working. *sob*), and then I will be done. YAY!

4) Then I have to start wrapping gifts. BOO!

5) My grandparents are still not going to the home. My grandmother wants to go, but doesn't want people looking at their taxes ("It's my money! Why do they need to know about it?!") and my grandfather doesn't want to go at all ("I won't be RAILROADED!"), until the next time my grandmother gets sick of course, and he starts crying about how it's all too much, he can't handle it, it's not fair because everyone goes home and he has to take care of her. Then she starts feeling better and he forgets he ever said any of that.

They called my mother today to tell her the power was out at their house. My mother told them to call Rick.

6) Started baking Christmas cookies yesterday, and hopefully will get the rest done tonight. All the peanut brittle is made, and that just leaves the baklava.

7) I also have to make the traditional family pate, which takes forever, and means a special shopping trip. But that'll be later in the week, since you don't want to make pate too early.

8) And I am thinking of Christmas ice cream. Peppermint stick or eggnog? Or both? What do you think?

9) I have seen Voyage of the Dawn Treader again. I still think it's better in 2-D. I still think it's not as good as the first two movies. But it has some beautiful scenes and some really nice moments, and Will Poulter as Eustace is still a delight. I also rewatched LWW and PC and spoiler, I guess... )

10) I've been so focused on Yuletide that I haven't been reading fics or leaving feedback, so I am planning to spend the afternoon doing that. Oh, what a chore. ;)
