Poem for Tuesday

Collapse )

Was having a conversation yesterday with a friend about why I can write a whole variety of kinks that revolt her but I absolutely refuse to read any fic with anyone underage involved with an adult. That poem is it exactly. Even artificially aging a character doesn't negate the sense of wrongness for me. YMMV of course; it just fascinates me how bodily fluids squick people who don't even blink at non-con. My writing partner and I were discussing this: Collapse )

ashinae is also trying to kill me, I would like to note, via Death By David Thewlis. Whom I am going to see again in HP:POA this evening with my children, who have had to wait this long due to their very busy sports schedules. Today my older son's grade is performing a play about colonial America -- he plays a British sentry, which I believe makes him a bad guy -- so we will be at the school for the performance before the movie.

Yesterday afternoon was taken up with taking the younger son to the orthodontist, then the older son had fencing, and we half-watched X2 since it was on in the evening. And oh! I forgot to mention that I got up early this morning to try to watch the transit of Venus, but it was too hazy to see through our Astronomy Magazine eclipse-viewers, and we settled for watching the webcast.

Aragorn has eaten through his entire treehouse, and is really not a very good nest-maker; Boromir always did that for him when they lived together. Here he is, sleeping in the silliest position imaginable, and looking rather uncomfortable, while Boromir is in a big enormous pile of shavings and chewed toilet paper rolls that we refer to as "the volcano" as it erupts and spills through the bars onto the kitchen floor whenever he decides to venture forth.

I suppose I had better get him a new treehouse or three, as he seems to be gnawing through them faster than ever before. Poor frustrated guy.

ETA: If you intend to repost this, upload it to your own site and use your own bandwidth. And, you know, it would be nice to be given credit when I scan something, as I always try to do for other people. My usual method is to link to the entry where I found the image in the first place, so people will discover other people who share their interests and give credit where credit is due -- a little netiquette goes a long way.

Also, it's the March 2004 issue of MAD with Oscar predictions on the cover, and I shall post more anon, including MAD's estimation of why Crowe should have won. *g*
