The latest entry at Write Badly Well is hilarious, as always. I guess it's one of those interesting things that might not be as much of a sin in fanfic as it is in regular fiction.

And then this earlier one.  You know who always pisses me off with exclamation points? Brian Lumley. At least he stopped adding exclamation points to his book titles (evidence that he used to do this here).  I run across his stories in horror anthologies, and some of them would be readable if every other punctuation mark wasn't an exclamation point.

I won't be sleeping much for the next week or so!  My schedule is completely nuts! I should be listening to something more high energy, but I really love this gorgeous song even though it makes me sleepy!

Off for coffee!

1 - Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 - I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 - You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 - You'll include this explanation.
5 - You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.

[ profile] _lullabelle_'s  questions:

1. Who is your second-most favorite Torchwood character and why?
Damn, I'm choking on the very first question. I like everyone else on the team equally, except for Owen. Gwen is a complicated character, I see her as being very flexible and adaptable, and I can really sympathize with her work/life balance issues.  I have a huge amount in common with Toshiko in terms of background and upbringing, and I love her too, but I don't really identify with her personality type.  Ianto has that cool mysterious reserve, and I like the fact that post-Cyberwoman, he turned into a low-drama, even-keeled sort of guy, unlike Owen. But I don't dislike Owen; I just think he got an inordinate amount of character development compared to the others.

2. Crayola calls you up and wants you to name a new crayon color. What will it be?
"Your Funeral, My Trial"

3. If you could only listen to three albums for the rest of your life, which three would you pick?
Genius/GZA: Liquid Swords
Manu Chao: Clandestino
David Bowie: Lodger
(not "Your Funeral... My Trial", although it's incredible, because it's just too much of a downer throughout.  Except "Hard on for Love", which is super-fun. I've been listening to that song a lot lately.)

4. ROAD TRIP! Anywhere in the world, cost no object, where to?
A historical development of Buddhism pilgrimage/tour, starting in Lumbini, India, going east through China and ending up in Kyoto.

5. How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
A regular woodchuck would just chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could if a woodchuck could chuck wood; the Cyberwoodchucks would chuck all the wood, then start chucking on humans.

... to any mothers, or those thinking of theirs.

I'm going to celebrate the day by doing as little as possible while watching awesome epic historical martial arts movies.  First up, Ong Bak 2.

I'm really angry about the Arizona law.

Southern Poverty Law Center: Arizona Immigration Law Violates Constitution, Guarantees Racial Profiling

This isn't a political blog so I won't go into much further detail other than to say that this is a deeply personal issue for me.

I watched this video again today, and this video (ha!) and this one.  I'm also going to give some extra money to the SPLC and anyone else who has good legal records at fighting this stuff.

I've been blogging for quite a few years on a couple very specialized topics, but this is my first time on Livejournal.  I suppose an awkward introduction is in order.  So, hello! I'm signing on because I've recently discovered I'm a fiend for hot gay porn Torchwood fanfiction.

I don't know Livejournal etiquette that well, although I'm trying to do my research as I go along.  I'm going to start adding communities and fanfic writers as LJ friends, and I'll start commenting on my favorite fics, listing them, and maybe posting observations now and then.  If I happen to go about this in an obnoxious way, it's probably by ignorance and not by design, so I'd welcome etiquette pointers.
