Something incorporating Steve Rogers and some of these historical VD awareness posters . I can't figure out how to link directly to specific posters, but there are a couple where men are sad that they can't enlist/fight in the war because they have VD--which would be a very interesting AU! (Though really my first thought is Captain America's ad campaign: Fool the Axis! Use prophylaxis!)

Specifically, you know you're in H50 fandom when (a) you almost can't restrain yourself from buying Longboards when you see them in the supermarket EVEN THOUGH YOU NEVER DRINK BEER; (b)the first thing you think of when accidentally stumbling onto a marathon of "Man, Woman, Wild" on the Discovery channel is wow, that would make a great Steve/Danny AU; (c) you find yourself shaking your head at the lack of research in a story about Danny running around in 100 degree heat when you happen to know the record high in Oahu was 95 degrees, set back in 1994. (And you don't even write fic yourself, you just researched it because of a general Hawaii obsession sparked by the show).

Not to mention this disease where you talk about yourself in the second person. What's up with that?

Dear [livejournal.com profile] christirose, thanks for the gopher! Sorry it took me a while to notice; I don't check my profile too often.

Dear unknown SPN fangirl who entertained me on the bus this afternoon by telling someone (via cellphone) all about the wonders of SPN, and how it's the only show you know that actually has the characters deal with fanfic about themselves, and how much you love the Ghostfacers, and how you've still never seen the pilot: you made me wish I had fan cards (like business cards, only with my LJ & gmail addresses) to give out in situations like this. I actually was going to ask you for your LJ handle--because there is no way you don't have one, after that conversation--but you got off the bus before I mustered up the nerve, alas. And I was going to offer to lend you my season 1 DVDs, too. If by some random chance of cyberspace you stumble across this, email me.

(Maybe we need a fannish version of Craigslist for messages like this?)

As I understand this meme, you reflect on your year by taking the first line of the first entry of every month this year. I found the concept amusing, and my result turned out to be surprisingly coherent, albeit crazy:

Chances of surviving a zombie apocalypse: zero.I was tempted to just post that subject line without anything in the text, but decided that was a little too mysterious. Now that I finally had a chance to watch and (hallelujah) have access to the internet again, my "Persona" reactions: How on earth is Escapade happening in 4 days? So is iTunes not carrying BSG anymore, or am I just completely incompetent in using their search engine? I liked this episode, don't get me wrong, but I think I had higher expectations of it going in, which might have been a mistake. Ok, I had never even heard of this until about 30 seconds before it aired (I haven't watched live TV since the SV finale...just haven't been in a television mood), but I happened to be surfing the TV Guide channel to see what was on and saw an ad, and DAMN. They pretty much had me at "hentai tentacle monster."

Some of you are under the impression that I am a nice person. That's mostly because I spend a lot of time online suppressing my inner bitch. Here are some more recs from this year's SPN/J2 bigbang, this time a mixed bag: J2 and SPN (including gen, het, and Wincest).I made this rec list about six months ago for a RL friend I was trying to entice into SPN fandom, and since then I have emailed it to several people, and I finally decided to just post these and point people to them rather having to cut and paste all the time. I really can't resist this meme: "As evidenced by Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade." I am now going to try to avoid refreshing political blogs every 30 seconds for the next 14 hours or so. I'm not dead, just having a very busy period at work.

Since there was a certain amount of discussion here about whether I was unusual for only shaving my legs from the knee down, I thought this merited a poll.

[Poll #1060405]
norwich36: (Default)
This particular poll of randomosity was inspired (a) by [livejournal.com profile] toadstoolsmiles magnificent confidence in her own self-love (if you don't know what I'm talking about, go here and here) and (b) looking up a couple people's profiles today and noticing they had themselves friended.


[Poll #1043523]

And if you would friend yourself, assuming you were a different person friending the person you are now, why would you friend yourself? Please take this as an excuse to talk about how cool you are in the comments.

Self-praise: it's the next best thing to sex with your own clone!

If somebody had informed me that we were experiencing the zombie apocalypse today, I would have figured out this unbelievable headache I've had all day earlier. Obviously the zombies already ate my brain sometime during that four whole hours of sleep I had last night--and here I was blaming my headache and zombie-like shuffle on sleep deprivation.

No need to worry about me, though, folks; vegetarian zombies only eats heads of lettuce, not heads of people.

OMG, I had no stories to run through the pornolizer, so I just linked to my latest SV review, and hahahahahahaha! *falls over dead from laughing* It's the silliest thing I have ever read. It STILL has spoilers for "Rage," though, so the review from Nora "suck my tits dry" Norwich is behind the cut. (I confess I edited a few of the sentences so they would make more sense).

Muppets

In non-political news, I was surfing around friendsfriends, and I saw someone with a Kermit/Miss Piggy icon. And for some reason that really started me pondering this pairing. I actually was thinking about them the whole time I was in line to vote. Are they really right for each other? I love both Kermit and Miss Piggy separately, but in some ways I think they're better apart than together. Maybe it's just that they embody a relationship dynamic I don't like too much: highly-strung diva with the long-suffering partner. I think they could both do better, though. Mayber Kermit with Scooter and Piggy with Fozzie Bear. Or do opposites always attract in the world of muppets?

What do you think? Is Kermit/Miss Piggy your muppet OTP, or do you have another?

A very happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] aelora!


Since I'm sure you've all been dying to know which was my real opinion, I'll reveal all in this post. The most popular vote was "Lana Lang would win in a hair-off with John Sheppard." Now, I'll have to admit, that was a bit of a trick response, because even though I said that very thing in my comments the day before, I don't think Lana actually would win in a hair-off with John Sheppard; I just think she ought to win. When you combine (a) the massive popularity of SGA in general, and John Sheppard in particular (there is actually a mood theme entirely centered on Sheppard's hair!) with (b) the unpopularity of Lana, my guess is that Lana wouldn't win. So that statement was false.

Though, to be fair, I should do a little scientific study here. In case you need visuals, here is a good Lana hair shot and a good Sheppard hair shot (in my opinion, anyway); what do you think?

[Poll #761508]

If anyone has better hair pictures of either party, feel free to drop them in the comments. Honestly, I spent hours looking for a Sheppard pic that didn't just look messy, and since I'm not in SGA fandom I was probably looking in the wrong places. And I'm particular partial to the wavier hair Lana was sporting late in season 5, but if anyone has better pics I'd appreciate them.

Rumors

So there is apparently this rumor going around that I am Zod. Or something like that. I just want to point out for the record that this is clearly impossible, for a variety of reasons:

1. Zod is a Kryptonian male; I am a human female.
2. Zod is sleek and stylin'; I am unsleek and dowdy.
3. As a vegetarian for the last 19 years, I would never wear leather even if it was wickedly hot .
4. If I had superpowers, there is no way I would have spent 3 hours on the bus this afternoon to do my shopping.
5. If I was in Lex's body, world conquest would not be at the top of my agenda; I'd be way too busy playing with myself in front of a mirror. (Umm. Did I say that out loud?)

So, just to be clear, [livejournal.com profile] iamzodkneel is a completely different person, and anyone who thinks otherwise will be smitten by Zod. Err, smited. Smote. Conquered! is just silly.

Anyway, IP addresses can be spoofed, dammit! And it couldn't have been me, because I was in the hospital, recovering from major surgery, after driving all day from Delaware to New Jersey, and my maid/nanny/assistant can confirm all of this. And if you continue to question me my armies of lawyers will descend upon you!!!

Now that we have that cleared up, I'm sure you're all dying to know which of my fake opinions from yesterday was the real one! SO here's a little poll:
