Okay, let's see how this crossposting thing works.

Of all the fun things that went on in Australia this weekend, I found that Misha saying that SPN fans like him - and Castiel - because he's not female was very interesting. I pretty much am able to stay away from those parts of the fandom, only hearing about them peripherally, just like I try and avoid the girlfriend haters and the folks who constantly bitch about Every Little Thing the show does, the Let's Give Them a Bound Copy of Slash people and the OMG Jared and Jensen are perfect/assholes crowd.

But I found it very insightful of him to say that.

He obviously is fascinated by fandom.

On a different note, I've been thinking about Susan Boyle. While watching that made me all teary, and I watched it many times, I've also been thinking about it. I think what made me teary was the quality of her singing voice, and the sheer pluckiness of her personality. What bothered me was the assumption on everyone's part that just because she's not young and gorgeous meant that her voice being gorgeous was a big surprise. Like only pretty people can sing pretty. The fact that it was all such a big deal because a fairly unattractive person can sing so beautifully. I'd like to think that it's a big deal because people's expectations were confounded and we again learned not to judge a book by its cover, but I'm afraid that's not what it was really all about.

It's raining and 40 here. WHERE IS SPRING?

The Penguins are leading the Flyers, 2 games to 1. I love playoff hockey, and I need to find my Pens icon. I have no idea where I put it.

We had fun at the dinner last night, Larry got to be seen by his new colleagues, funds were raised, although not by me. An autographed Mario Lemieux hockey sweater went for $1500 in the after dinner auction. Tiffany contributed a $2500 dollar necklace, which I bought a ticket for but didn't win. I got a lot of comments on my dress, because it wasn't black, which in Pittsburgh is pretty much what everyone wears to formal occasions. I made the mistake of having coffee with dinner, and so I was awake until 3. You'd think I'd quit doing that.

I've never seen so much deer poop in my life as there is in our yard. The other day, TWENTY of them wandered through in the middle of the afternoon. I counted them. That's like a whole herd.

Story ratings annoy me. I know, I know, I know why they're supposedly necessary. But I never look at 'em on stories I read and I hate trying to decide on a rating for stories I write. I feel the same way about summaries and headers, but that's probably a leftover from popslash. It's just all so rigid, you know?

And that mini-rant was brought on by the fact that I just posted a story to [livejournal.com profile] spnflashfic for the "five things" challenge. :)

Your Kiss Left Me a Bloody Mess
Sam/Dean, NO RATING. Okay, it's PG 13ish.

Five times Dean kisses Sam.

If we get one more campaign phone call this afternoon, I swear I won't vote for anybody on Tuesday. I was amused, I'll admit, by the guy calling from New York who wanted to know if I needed a ride to the polls. Was he going to come pick me up if I said yes?

Erin and Ashley and I spent so much time talking about Supernatural when we were in Disney last week that Merri decided she needs to watch it. She was on vacation this past week, and she's packing up to move to VA and start grad school in January, so I loaned her Season 1 to watch while she worked. She came over today, completely hooked, to get Seasons 2 and 3. She said it was a little hard to get really involved until "Faith" and I said, yes, that's how it works. Also, she couldn't get over how pretty Jensen is.

Drabbles are hard, yo. I just finished ten of 'em for the [livejournal.com profile] spnflashfic prompt "promises" and it wasn't easy.

Mirror Plane. 1000 words, Sam, Dean, John and Mary. Gen. The Winchesters all have something in common.

I posted a short story at [livejournal.com profile] spnflashfic for this week's challenge. It's 400 words, Sam post 3.16, and it's here.

The girls and their animals have gone home to Columbus. Magil didn't leak all over my house, but she sure is stinky. She weighs 18 pounds and it's great fun getting her meds down her. Vicki's skin condition seems to be better, but I have this overwhelming urge to vacuum and disinfect my entire house now.

We had a nice weekend, though. Erin finally lightened up, which was good. Colleen is visiting her mother, so Adam was a bit cranky, but we still had fun. It was weird to have just the five of us together.

Oh, also, I signed up at [livejournal.com profile] dvd_commentary if anyone wants to comment on anything I've ever written. I'm sure there's a long line of you out there.
Mood:: 'pleased' pleased
