Five Reasons Pop Culture Is Run By Fanfiction


HA! We will be ruling the world by sundown!

(Okay, so the article is more "Five Reasons Why Fanfiction is a Completely Legitimate Medium," but nonetheless. I was tickled.)

Finally, Something Changes!

So after a year and three weeks of unemployment and a harrowing week of reference checks, I am finally reemployed! I'm excited, but have some mixed feelings due to the long hours and prohibition from taking days off for six months. Still, it's only a year contract and I really did need a job. So yay! Tomorrow will be a night for celebrating!

Cheers from Gallifrey One, my dears! I decided to go for just Saturday, just so I could see what it's all about. Some really interesting folks about, and the line for Peter Davison's autograph was around the corner. But I'm sitting right in front of a life-size TARDIS as I type this, which is way cool. In the "deeply deeply dorky" sense of "cool."

Because I Am An Ignorant Little Starfish...

Guys, can someone explain what Tumblr is to me? Please? Everyone seems to have one, but I don't even know what it's all about! (I made actual effort and went to the main page, but I'm still kind of puzzled because until a short time ago I always thought it was like Photobucket or something, just an image-hosting website.)

But people keep talking about their their Tumblr and it sounds like it'd be something cool, but the ignorant starfish thing.

So, f-list, is anybody going to Gallifrey One this year? I'm considering it, but I'd be a lot more sure if I didn't have to wander all alone hoping to make a friend.

FINALLY home! After three weeks, two and a half feet of snow, and several loooooong flights I have finally returned to Los Angeles and (much as I miss my family and East Coast People) I am very glad to be here. Okay, so I have to pay a late fee for my rent being nearly a week late (after I even TOLD the landlady why it would be late, grumble grumble) and my kitchen table is covered a foot deep with books I need to either sell or pack up because my bookshelves are overflowing, but I've got my own bed back, I'm starting a drawing class at UCLA next week, and I can watch whatever I want on TV without anyone making faces1

:D It's good to be back.

Snagged from several people on my f-list...

TO ALL MY LJ FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS: Copy and Paste if you have enjoyed the blessing of meeting people online that you never would have met any other way. This is my end of the year shout out to the many "friends" I have never been in the same room with but who have inspired, amused, comforted, encouraged, and touched me in so many ways. I love you people! Here's to another year together!!

Well, I SAID I wanted to see some snow while I was home.  And here at the Jersey Shore, BOY HAVE WE GOT SNOW.
