sheepfairy: "Also, the next time you're doing a link post, could you please pimp </a></font></b></a>ficsforcharity? It's set up to try and raise money for the victims of the Pakistani/Indian earthquake. I realize that most people have already given up most of their spare cash to help with Katrina, but, alas, it seems like God/Mother Nature isn't done being angry yet."
The Seeeeeeeeex Boooooooooooooat... My only question is, where the hell did the sex toys come from? Are they standard Minnesota Viking issue?
Lee to take spiky [har har har!] look at Katrina.
JESUS. "A woman clubbed her pregnant neighbor over the head with a baseball bat, drove her to the woods and cut her belly with a knife in an attempt to steal her baby, police say." And this is a completely different case from the woman who was killed for her unborn baby last December.
Josh Holloway (
the Jackhole Sawyer on Lost) robbed in Hawaii: "Early Wednesday morning it was a real gun that was pointed at the actor and his wife. Holloway's agent says the experience has left the couple shaken. After rousting Holloway and his wife out of bed, the man left with cash and credit cards. The thief also drove away in the actor's Mercedes. The car was recovered a short time later, but the thief is still on the loose."
And if I could afford this, yeah, Lost recapping would be easier.
AUGH THE 1928 PORTIATA LINE IS ON CLEARANCE. ACK SO IS CAPRI. *sits on
credit card hands*
Excellent political stickers.
The Onion: ESPN Courts Female Viewers With World's Emotionally Strongest Man Competition.
Bizarre otf_wank involving a writer named Steve Almond and his e-stalker, plus some Deep Reflections on the nature of blogging and/or famewhoring. Includes the immortal, tongue-in-cheek passage, "For the record, Birnbaum: If I get wind of you dissing my junk ever again, I'm gonna track down your mutt and see how she like my chocolate bone. Why? Cuz that b how real authors do they bidness." Gah, Steve--everyone knows it's spelled "authaz."
Weird spam email I got today--I admit to reading it, because I figured, maybe it's legitimate handbag spam, y'all. I could do with a fake Fendi right now.
Subject: "Replica handbags"1) That was deep, yo.

School: I just finished The Morgesons for class, and I'm telling you, you've got to read it. Well--if you don't mind a very modernist, unemotional first-person narrator; for most of the book she reads like she has ADD and/or Asperger's. Very flat affect, changes the subject constantly, doesn't follow up on or explain a lot of things (not that there's all that much to be explained anyway). But it's so incredibly refreshing because 1) it's a woman who truly doesn't give a damn about society, and 2) you don't feel like this is a writer straining to make a character "believable." This isn't an attempt at reality--this is reality. And it's a reality you don't often get on the page. Date of publication? 1862. I know. And the end just about killed me. Also? A dark, attractive stranger shows up for the last quarter of the story. His name? Desmond. I think Desmond is my new favorite name or something.
Still more icons over at m15m. I haven't done tonight's yet because I can't decide which movie to do next--I'll save either Titanic or Star Wars for the last day, and Potter, LOTR, and Gladiator have been done so far. Suggestions?
Also: I'm looking into printing bookplates on my computer (this seems to be the cheapest way--design them yourself and buy the size of label you want in bulk), and I can't remember what "From the pen of..." is in Latin. Like, "From the library of..." is ex libris. I saw the "pen" version and now I can't remember it. Crap. Help?
P.S. There are still a couple of hours left in Oyster Egg Day.
