Thank you all for birthday wishes and birthday fics. Much appreciated. And got your card, the_grokster
. Unexpected surprise, thank you.
is crack. Serious, serious singing crack. But enjoyable crack and David Tennant is hot. Yes, sparklechick268
, your package has arrived. Thank you :) (Mmm, David. Lick things some more. And take your clothes of some more. In fact, why do you do both at once?)
In other news, Olympics nears the end and I am sad. Sniff. It's been a rather bad Olympics for Norway. Last one we got 13 golds. so far, we've got two. But I've quite enjoyed it anyway, particulary watching underdog wins. (Italian speedskating team kicking the American ass, Fabris beating both Shani Davis and Chad Hedricks - whom I've really devolped a dislike for - French guy winning the biathlon pursuit, even if he beat a Norwegian.)
Me and Mum driving to get some plants picked up:
Mum: And when the Olympics are over, we can go see that gay western.
Me: Yeah, sure.
Mum: I also heard things about the McCarthny era movie.
Me: With George Clooney, yeah. Mmm, that's doable.
Mum: And that native American girl movie got good reviews...
Me: Pocahontas? They made another Pocahontas movie? It's not a Disney movie, is it?
Mum: Would I take you to see a Disney movie? More importantly, would I take me to see a Disney movie?
Me: ... Point well put.
I went to see the Pride and Prejudice
movie the other day. Yes, I know, I know, it ain't the BBC version. And it certainly wasn't. However, I found myself unable to hate it. It has parts that were quite all right. Wickham and Mr Collins were shadoes of themselves and all, but there were several other minor characters I enjoyed. And hey, Penelope Wilton. She pops up the oddest places I look these days.
And then of course I come home to read that South Dakota moves to ban most abortions
(probably trying to get Roe vs Wade overturned
). Oh joy. It's starting. And I see not even women raped or pregnancy as the result of incest will be allowed. Am suddenly very glad I live in little Norway, where the "pro-life" movement (in my book, you have to show for a little more than being anti-abortion to stop me rolling my eyes at the "pro-life" title) is two nutty priests. Meanwhile, CSI fanfic writers seem to wander away a bit. (With wanky banners, yo.)
Humhum. Course, I have wandered away a bit myself, but not due to reviews or lack thereof. (If I was in it for the reviews, I would've kept writing OFUM for the rest of my life.) I simply got distracted. Still, fanfic writers do feel better nutured with reviews. I know I don't review as much as maybe should, but I can be fairly snobbish and critical and you can never quite know how a writer will take it. However, if you are willing to take it, feel free to drop a link here if there was something you really wanted feedback on. I can't guarantee I'll have time for all, but you never know.
Maybe there ought to be feedback week?
