So how was your day?

New Secret Life of Dolls thataway. And when you're done, here is the back story on [spoiler].

Meanwhile, I didn't quite grasp this fact the last time I mentioned it, but foresthouse is having her keratoconus eye surgery on Thursday, not some vague indefinite "soon." If you've ever wanted to send me money for writing about movies or dolls or linkspam or what have you--please think about sending it to her instead; her PayPal address is emilyesse @gmail .com (take out the spaces). I mean, there are so many of you here that five dollars would help, if you could. If you'd rather send me money, I'm dailydigest @yahoo .com (and I will turn around and give it to her). And foresthouse herself writesask_deadpool, she co-founded and works on the North American Discworld Convention (NADWCON), and she's my agent and she needs to be able to see to do these things and I don't know what else to do. Except "write faster," maybe.

... I've just now found out that my other grandmother is in the hospital after having been in a car accident. It sounds like she's going to be okay, but she did break some ribs, and they've put her in ICU because of her age.

What's that, Tiny Tim? You need a new crutch? I'm sorry, all I have tonight is linkspam. It's a lot of good stuff, but pretty much without commentary because I'm a little wrung out at the moment.

Iron Man 3? GROAN.

And I'm not sure if you saw it or not, but there's eight new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows TV spots. They're EPIC.


Hee, I love #8. The multiple Harrys scene will make my year.

It's days like this where I wish I just had tons of money to help out. I put off paying my cable bill to buy U2 tickets for Pittsburgh this morning (figuring $87 is better now than $200 or so next summer when the show is closer and has been sold out for months), our car is without heat, we don't qualify for assistance with the boy's preschool costs, and his picture day is Wednesday. They told us about it TODAY. *headdesk*

Dear Lord, please send that winning lottery ticket soon. Thanks.

I am so sorry about all of this, and they are both in my prayers. (And thanks for doing the linkspam with it all.)

Cleo, your friend doesn't seem to want donations, according to that post. Are you sure it's cool? Could we do a live-journal auction on things we might normally sell on Etsy or something like that?

I had to talk her into it, pretty much, after people started offering to help. So yeah, it's cool. Hard for her, but very appreciated.

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother(s) and hope the best for them both. I'm definitely sending good thoughts to foresthouse - does she have a paypal link or anything? I'm not entirely sure how to send money via email but I definitely want to help.

Here's a little sympathy for Anna too: Photobucket

Aw. Well, you go to PayPal, and you use the email address (given) to send money. I'm trying to figure out if there's a handy all-in-one personalized link.

You know, I was just thinking to myself the other day, "Self, you know what the Hellraiser franchise needs?"

"More nudity and over-the-top violence? That chains-with-hooks gag is getting so old hat!"

"No, no, don't be ridiculous. Hellraiser needs to be more TEEN FRIENDLY."

"By george, you're right! Forget all that namby-pamby people-walking-around-with-no-skin flim-flam. Let's get hip up in heeeerrrrr!"

I think it needs a Justin Bieber song with a tie-in movie footage video.

That is the worst thing I have read all week. Possibly all month.

I don't even understand what they were thinking. That sounds like a parody skit, or something they'd have in the middle of Grindhouse.

(Deleted comment)
I really wish I had more than good wishes for you and foresthouse. But yeah, I too need to write faster. Sigh.

There aren't enough emoticons in the world for how much of a bad idea this is.

How does that even work?

(Oh great, now I have this mental image of Columbus going THIS. IS. AMERICA! and drop-kicking some poor sod off the Mayflower.)

I cant stop laughing.

This is going to end well.

This comment, coupled with that awesome icon, made me LOL. Well played.

I'll try to give some money to foresthouse later in the week.

I hope she gets better.

Mark! Mark of "Mark Reads Harry Potter." Are you around? I have news that is relevant to your interests, and didn't know where else to find you. (Sorry Cleo.)

You see, you're in a comic.

I have looked into the abyss of the meta, and it is... hilarious.

Tossed some coins in the kitty.

This is so awful. This is like a black hole of awful, yea, a wretchèd singularity of awful.

Just sent some ducats off to Forresthouse. And damn, that sucks about your other grandmother. You've been having a rough month, girl.
