In honor of the US Supreme Court's decisions today, I would just like to quote Eric Flint.

“They’re madmen, I tell you!” exclaimed Beatty, still with that grin. “They’re even advocating amalgamation!”
Porter cleared his throat. There were limits, and he had finally reached all of them.
“No, actually—and I’d advise you to be careful how you phrase that. They are not advocating
amalgamation. They’re simply calling for the removal of all laws that regulate marriage by criteria of color.”
Beatty was giving him that look that Porter had come to detest. Half frowning, because he was stupid.
Half jeering, because his stupidity had no bottom.
“If you can’t understand the difference, Representative Beatty, it’s the difference between advocating divorce and allowing for it in the law. I do not advocate that you divorce your wife.”
Not that the poor woman probably wouldn’t thank me.
“I do, however, propose to make it legally possible for you to do so, should that be your choice.”
May 14, 1943

So, Delicious has a new look. To be honest I'm not sure I like it.

Cons:
Tags Pages Aren't Arranged Chronologicly
Not Enough Contrast
Can't Change Number of Links on a Page
Can Only Jump Four Pages at a Time
Can't See Other Peoples Notes
Can't Hide Urls
Don't Like Default Avatar
So my friend roped me into RPG-ing Friday week ago. As a result I finally got around to reading the Dresden RPG book I torrented a while ago. My thoughts while reading:

The Old World
makes the UN look like the local bridge club
Sorry Jim, I've heard my Nanny talking about the bridge club. They make the Fae look like the UN.

the Jade Court is a wild card
Yeah this isn't foreshadowing at all. If the Jade Court don't show up as a replacement for the Red Court...

Oh God the tongue on page 19 is gross.

Seriously, what is it with the tongues in this book?

Gabriel never walks quietly when he can appear in a chorus of light
Is it bad that I thought this was a great description of SPN's Gabriel?
To the writers of American TV shows. It's wonderful you want to have Halloween themed episodes. It's great that you want to include the Celtic history of Samhain.

BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THE LITTLE FISH!

It is not pronounced like it is spelled.

I've seen both Supernatural and Criminal Minds mess this up recently. (Supernatural was aired a while ago, but I only saw it a week ago.)

Do two minutes of research and go on Wikipedia where they have an audio file of the RIGHT pronunciation.

It's not that hard!

Writing

Jan. 31st, 2011 02:39 pm

Found my old hardcopy notes for stories.

Plan to type them on to shiny new hard drive.

Only one problem. Some of them have plot notes. Wanting to keep these plans secret they are in shorthand. Most of them I remember my plans, but one or two I can't remember what my plans were. Quite odd experience. Annoying to discover hiding place/code is so good not even you can undo it.

May post fics to LJ. Utter tripe though not sure if embarrassment/ concrit balancing act is worth it.

For those of you who don't know seventeen senior male employees at Price Waterhouse Cooper have become embroiled in a scandal which might be seen to parallel the opening of the movie The Social Network. The Irish Times covers it here, Gawker here and the Google news feed is here.

Thoughts? Ideas? Con-crit?

Just finished/threw aside two of the most impossible books I have ever picked up.

Stars Tennis Balls by Stephen Fry. Roman a clef to Count of Monte Cristo. Good read but irritatingly follows original plot in a very fill in the blanks way.

Edmond Dantès=Edward Maddstone:anagram
Monte Cristo=Simon Cotter:anagram
Mercedes=Portia:pun: Mercedes-Benz → Porsche
Noirtier:Blackrow:translated literally
Rue Heron becomes Heron Square
the Abbe (Faria)=the Babe (Fraser):semi:anagram
de Villefort=Oliver Delft:anagram
Fernand Mondego=Gordon Fendeman:anagram
Capt. Leclere=Paddy Leclare:homonym
Caderousse=Rufus Cade:translation: rousse = red = Rufus
Baron Danglars=Barson-Garland:anagram
Albert=Albert:same name; different languages


In Defense of Elitism by William A. Henry III. Interesting premise, previously seen in Screwtape Proposes a Toast that egalitarianism is an unsuitable method for running anything; especially politics and education, both of which should make their participants strive for excellence rather than making every-one reach the same standard. Rhetoric was unreadable however.
I am a slasher with gen leanings.

I write in multiple fandoms, lurking more than I write. I cross post to TtH if it suits.

My fandoms and pairings include:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: post- Chosen and Xander-centric gen, esp. Xander's Real Family type fics.
Xander/ anyone especially Spander

CSI: Greg/ anyone especially Greg/Nick.

CSI: Miami: any slash parings esp.  Ryan or Speed and Hardy Boys(Eric/Ryan).

CSI: New York: Don/Danny/Mac and any permutations thereof.

Criminal Minds: Reid/Hotch/Morgan and any permutations thereof.

Stargate: SG1: Daniel/Jack OTP. In my head the Goauld are still a threat, Jack is still a Colonel and on a team with his Spacemonkey.
                : Atlantis: McShep but  I'm open minded. However as far as I'm concerned anything after Sunday? DIDN'T HAPPEN!

Supernatural: Wincest, J2 and any of the boys slashed with a crossover character or OMC

NCIS: Tony/Gibbs.

And I'm in permanent denial of anything that messes with my world view.

Also I crawl at the feet of the Masters of Fantasy, also known as Pratchett and Tolkein, however I am not worthy to write in their universes.
