1. New rule: if it takes me longer than a tweet to type out, I'm posting about it.
1a. except for politics because if I have to think about the election for longer than 30 seconds at a time I'm going to have a nervous breakdown. I look at my posts for the last two elections and just feel guilty at how much more I knew and how much more I cared and was involved but I just can't this year, I just can't.
1b. Sometimes that posting might take place at tumblr.
1c. This is mostly because if I don't get back in the habit of stringing words in sentences on a regular basis Yuletide is going to go very, very badly for me.

2. This might mean that my levels of boringly mundane posts SKYROCKET, so this is just advance defriend-at-will warning!
2a. But this post probably jinxed it, so never mind.

3. Tonight I:
- Washed dishes
- Cooked dinner
- Washed dishes
- Made cake
- Washed dishes
- Took DISGUSTING rubbish out, in the dark and rain down my steep hill (*polishes halo*)
- Knit a 310 st row of lace, fucked it up right at the beginning, began the slow awful process of tinking back
- Watched a lot of Sports Night. I'm at the beginning of season 2 and I expect to get the whole lot done by the end of the weekend.

4. Yuletide! Who wants to talk about Yuletide?

- Yuletide looks MASSIVELY complicated this year, holy crap. I have every confidence that it will actually be fine and straightforward but oh my.
- On the other hand perhaps this will take care of the massive overloading of the servers, ha ha ha.
- Noms! What are we nomming? I'm doing Cats of Grand Central for [personal profile] trialia and I'll probably end up adding some characters to the Young Wizards fandom (am I correct in my reading that adding characters requires a separate nomination?), but I'm thinking someone is probably going to beat me to nomming the Newsflesh trilogy, so ... I'm not sure what my third will be. Maybe it will be book-related? I don't know. I kind of want some slashy, slashy slash, like with classic 90s slash tropes where one of them is gay, and one of them ~always thought he was straight, IDK, I am just having this massive nostalgia that I'm pretty sure is related to how damn 90s Sports Night is. Bill Clinton is still the President, y'all, and Dana's hair! (Which I love. Unfortunately I think I've got to embrace the fact that 90s hair will always be awesome and a style icon for my hair. Oh well, haters know where to go.) (<-- that way.)

Sports Night is back in and always good for the 90s slash tropes. Then again, it's another one you can be pretty sure someone else will nominate.

paxpinnae: Yuletide is the most wornderful time of the year. (calvin and hobbes)

Yeah, Yuletide this year is a bit... complex. You get four characters, and if you want more, someone else has to nom the fandom as well.

Newsflesh is already well taken care of, as someone's picking up Shaun, George, and the Kellises, and I'm picking up Mahir, Becks, Dave, and Magdalene. If you want other characters, I'm flexible on Dave and Magdalene. I think the current situation in Young Wizards is that Tom, Carl, Carmela, and Dairine are the nominated characters? So if you wanted to nom, say, any of Kit, Nita, Darryl, Ronan, The Lone Power or the Winged Power, my enormous Dairine/Carmela writing blind spot would thank you.

I'm with you on the filthy, quasi-incestuous porn, but I also kinda want Baby!Becks being fascinated with dead things and her parents being horrified and Mahir being all unrequited all over England. So, barring my spontaneously developing the ability to make decisions, I'm keeping my options open.

Re: YW: But Tui, Dairine/Carmela is harrrrrrdddddd. I've tried it, and I keep just winding up with future!fic starring intergalatic Indiana Joneses with tits. Which, you know, I'd read that story, but it doesn't seem precisely in character.
