So I've started roughing out various ideas for my [livejournal.com profile] sshg_giftfest recipient, thinking about the different prompts, how they might be fleshed out, where they might go, how I can work in various elements. And I'm in so much trouble. Because I want to write All The Things. In fact multiple versions of All The Things. Seriously, I have at least seven different stories that are all tugging at my sleeve and whining, "Write me!" "No, write me!!" "Shut up, she's going to write ME!!"

This is a good thing, right? Right??

Tweeted during Trump's speech accepting the nomination. First I laughed, then I got depressed.



(N.B.: It was actually Kennedy who used the "city on a hill" quote, taking it from the writings of early Massachusetts Bay Colonist John Winthrop, 1630. Reagan's slogan was "Morning in America." Nevertheless, damn funny.)

More good tweets ===>

I just got the best comment ever on my Modern Major Death Eater (parody of Modern Major General) and I had to share:

"I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY I LOVE THIS IT IS PERFECTION THIS IS WHY THE INTERNET EXISTS"

lol

This is how I feel when I read a really good piece of fanfic, so I'm especially tickled :)

So, just to be sure we're all clear on this: That was the MOLT I was posing with, NOT the actual spider. Please don't think me braver stupider than I actually am lol (For those of you want to look at it again, which may be none of you heheh, note how stiff the legs are and the clump of tissue filling the abdomen. Those are, er, "dead" giveaways!)

Also my apologies for not putting the picture behind a cut. I should have done, so as not to freak people out. There are things I just really do not want to see ever, and for some people, spiders are that. So sorry, guys!!

Here's the really funny part, though: when my brother and I were kids, he had snakes, rats and tarantulas. Our bedrooms were right next to each other, downstairs in a walkout basement. I had recurring nightmares that the spider had escaped and was sitting in my face. I swore that when *I* was a grownup, I would NEVER have those creepy things in my house no never not ever.

And now, here I am, *mumble* years later, with Mr Psmith, a room-full of tarantulas and snakes, and I'm letting him pose the damn thing's exoskeleton on my face.

Oh karma, you are a bitch, aren't you??

The little icons that go with each warning are HILARIOUS. I think my favorite is "excessive use of passive voice" XD

useful amazon warnings
