Have just deleted the vast majority of my icons, and have a new default. Just FYI, really, since it always fucks my head when people change their default icons.

Uh. Um, guys? I am fish sitting for my neighbour while she is away on vacation, and I am pretty sure that I just changed the fish water and accidentally killed all the fishes. I'm not even sure how that HAPPENED! I pulled them out with paper cups and put them in a bucket (with water!) and then rinsed out the bowl and then put in more water and put the fish back in, and that was fifteen minutes ago and I just went into the bathroom and they are all -- you know, pretty clearly not swimming.

I should not be allowed to have fish. They always end up dead.

I always do this, but it is just not good. No. Just -- just no. There is a PERFECTLY LOVELY sushi place literally half a mile from my house, there is no reason in the WORLD for me to eat crappy TJ's sushi.

In related news: Now we have groceries.
In less related news: I bought a red bra. Also shoes. \o/

a poll! everyone loves a poll.

if meghan were getting a tattoo, which should she get first?

an illustration of the golden mean (more accurately, a fibonacci spiral) (see link below)
a nautilus fractal (see link below)
the alphabet plus punctuation in a titling font
a three dimensional representation of a tesseract (this would be hard to draw)
a fractal (julia set -- see link below)

Golden Mean/Fibonacci Spiral
Nautilus fractal
Julia Set

Please note that the above are just illustrations, and obviously any work done would be either slightly more dramatic (my spiral would need a bounding rectangle, for example) or much simplified (with only the primary spiral of the nauti shown, or the primary bits of the julia).

Opinions? I've been thinking about all of these for a while and don't think that I'd regret any of it.

I know that it's not polite to embed youtube without cutting, but this is one of the few times that I'm saying too bad. If you haven't seen this, you should.

Y'all, I will award someone with ten kisses, five internets, and a dollar if they will just please come over and make me sauteed mushrooms and tomatoes with cheese on toast. PLEASE.

Possibly worth mentioning is that they will also need to bring the mushrooms and the cheese and the toast parts of that, but hey, I've got tomatoes, so that's something, right?

Dear Fandom,

Sometimes, you know, it is not actually all about you. No, really. You're not being targeted, not any more than anyone else is.

Also, what's with this fandom_counts thing? Surely you're not trying to say that there's a larger fandom collective than there is, say, a knitting collective, or a rape survivors collective, and since fandom's bigger, it matters more, are you? ...You're not, right? Right? I don't think that anyone -- up to and including the omg evil ppls at 6A/LJ -- fails to realise that fandom is a huge influence on LJ, but again: not about you. What, exactly, are you trying to accomplish, other than to yell about being oppressed and claim that since there are lots of fans around here, there should be... what, special rules for them? They should be exempt from other rules?

Do I think that it was handled badly? Yeah, I totally do. Do I feel bad for the people who've just lost their fic or RP or whatever? Yeah, though there's a part of me that's sneering 'next time, keep a backup, you morons'. Do I feel totally awful for the people who've just lost their support group and their safe places? Yes, absolutely.

That said, I think that both fandom and LJ look like losers in this particular equation. LiveJournal has -- once again -- created a PR disaster entirely of their own making by completely failing to address user concerns in a timely manner and looking like incompetent morons who don't understand their own policies. Fandom has -- once again -- chosen to view everything through the filter of oh noes, the mainstream people are out to get us, the sky is falling the sky is falling run run run, looking like spoilt children. Way to reinforce stereotypes, LJ and fandom!

Strong work all around.

In more exciting news: LOLBOTS. Way better than cat macros.
