Item: I love my massage therapist--I truly do--he takes me seriously when I say "I have hideous back issues, please fix them." On the other hand, fixing them involves ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF PAIN. I always want to write S/M fic after a deep-tissue, because it would reassure me that sometimes people hurt you for good reasons.

Item: I always plan to write and do homework when I come down to my parents', and I have no idea why, because CLEARLY, it never happens. Karla is going to get birthday fic in November.

Item: On the other hand, I just mailed somebody's 2008 Chrismakkuh gift. Perhaps Karla will understand that I am a spazz.

Item: Does anybody have any handy-dandy tips for getting red dye out of cloth? There was an unfortunate incident with Crystal Lite and a carpet. Boiling water has done a lot of good but does not appear likely to do any further good. Suggestions? If I add a teaspoon of vinegar to hot cocoa and shake vigorously, will this help?

Item: LEVERAGE. OT33333333333333333333333333!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Although wtf, iTunes, why it took you three days to give me my show, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THAT.)

Item: The lady who waxed me today was brand-new and apologised after every rip. I kind of wanted to pat her on the head. I've been doing this since I was ten, I promise if the wax was too hot I would say so and that I am prepared for reddened skin.
John Rogers, obviously your awesome show came from an awesome brain; thanks for confirming it.

Still a touch of arrogance, there, in that absolute statement that "pro" writers are less likely to be crap; because frankly a lot of people who don't get paid are better than a lot of people who do (I'll back any of about twenty fic writers against, say, the people who were writing SGA) However, that idea of media's role in the audience's life and how fic plays into that? That's spot-on, and I'm glad of it.
Dude, I hate starting a new fandom that's big enough to have a lot of crappy fic but too small to have reliably good authors and/or decent rec lists.

Also, I need icons. And I've always sucked at finding those.
