Anything lower than 0 C is too cold. The last two years have been insanely cold, it's gone down to -18 at night in some places.

Rules

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Turn to page 60.
3. Find the ninth sentence.
4. Type it out. It defines how good you are at oral.

As it drew nearer I observed that it was the Swiss diligence: it stopped just where I was standing; and, on the door being opened, I perceived Henry Clerval, who, on seeing me, instantly sprung out. 

Frankenstein
, Mary Shelley

Aww yeah, he's not the only one springing out, ifyaknowwhaddamean, nudge nudge wink wink.

Well, there goes my good mood for the day.

NYTimes, the bastion of quality reporting, reported on the gang-rape of an 11 year-old girl in Texas  that's led to charges against 18 high-school boys so far - all well and good so far, right?  Shit like this NEEDS publicity to raise awareness. 

Only problem is, they repeated - without refutation or critical commentary - the claims that the girl brought the rape on herself because of the way she was dressed.

Choice Quotes (No cut b/c everyone needs to see this - DEAL.):

“It’s just destroyed our community,” said Sheila Harrison, 48, a hospital worker who says she knows several of the defendants. “These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives.  As opposed to the victim, who's gonna bounce back lickety-fucking-split, right?

Residents in the neighborhood where the abandoned trailer stands — known as the Quarters — said the victim had been visiting various friends there for months. They said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground, some said.  TOTALLY BEGGING FOR IT.

THIS IS RAPE CULTURE, PEOPLE.

Now, what's being said and done in this community is bad enough, but the NY Times should be fucking ashamed of themselves right now.

Here's how to contact NYT: )

You guys know the drill by now, ask for something feel-good and I'll do you something! I'm flying home tomorrow, so responses might be a bit slow.

ETA: Meme is closed, I'll try to get the fills up tomorrow.

Hey! Feel Good Friday is a go! I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do this, so I'm adding something new this week.

Tell me something that's made you feel happy this week! Even if it's something as silly as a kitten gif or as wonderful as falling in love, I want to hear so I can squee with you. Let's bring the joy, people! And of course, ask for something silly/happy/fun and I'll do something for you. :) This meme will be open until midnight on Friday, GMT +1.

I'm flying home on Saturday, so responses may take a while. I promise they'll be done by Monday!

ETA: Meme's closed!
keevacaereni: (neutral good)
It's Feel Good Friday! Prompt me something happy/silly/fluffy, and I will do fic/art/poetry/interpretative dance for it.

Art is less likely this week, just so you know.

ETA: Meme's closed!

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous.

Upon request, I will post a random line or two from any of these you choose. Assuming that the file adds up to a full line, that is.


Bennett!fic
Drabblesets
halloween
LeluxLulu crackfic
Pirate!AU
twilight crossover (oh god i'm sorry) Yes, it's actually called that.

Not including the secret santa christ fic because I don't want to give the game away.
keevacaereni: (oh crap)
Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the characters' heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
keevacaereni: (squee)
I am in a really ridiculously good mood right now. As such, I declare this to be Feel Good Friday! What this means for you, dear readers, is you can ask me for something fluffy/silly, and I will do a drabble/poem/doodle/interpretive dance for you. I don't mind what! Fanstuff, original work, kittens, it's all good. I want to make you guys happy!


Well, after my essay is done, I will anyway. :D

My exams are over! The one I've just had was really easy, as it's intended for second year French students learning English. Pretty sure I passed it. A big part of the essay was writing a diary of the events in the Man Who Would Be King. (I was so tempted to write in a million Very Secret Diaries references.) Gotta love fanfiction getting you marks.

So now I have a whole weekend to chill, watch a load of Dollhouse extras, and knit. Or something, I don't know what, I'm kinda between projects at the moment. I have a plan for a blanket for my mother but I have to learn how to make granny squares first. And then I'd have to hide them somewhere all summer until I got my own place. I'm considering just making hats for my brothers, since that's easier.

I'm so glad to be through all the exams, you don't even know. And it's only five weeks until half term! Good times.

Go to Wikipedia and hit random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
Go to quotationspage.com and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
Go to flickr and click on explore the last seven days. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
Use photoshop or similar to put it all together. Post it with this text in the caption.




I think I may be in a folk band.

Comment on this post with the words "lampshade hanging", and i will name at least 5 tv tropes that i think apply to you.

Christmas has been lovely! The kids woke me up and we watched them open their many presents, then us adults opened ours. I got Professor Layton and the Curious Village, a lovely new top, some bath stuff from Lush and a Lego Star Wars alarm clock. :D I also got a lucky cat that talks, even if it only speaks Japanese. :D It is adorable. I also got a bit of money and some giftcards, so a trip to HMV is in my future! After, I set up the lads' Leg stuff (mam hates doing Lego), and we played on the Michael Jackson dancing game.

We went to Stepdad's parents for dinner, and had an absolutely lovely Christmas dinner. Then we came home and played about some more. Then I decided to call dad.

Dad has decided we are not visiting nannan because it doesn't suit him. He doesn't feel like having a family sit down with his mother, God only knows why. And then he expected me to go to his house with my little sister and go fishing. Neither of us enjoy fishing.

This is Dad all over. He acts like we're dolls to be picked up at his convienience. Christmas is about the kids, and while I can cope with the crap he puts me through, Sis the Second deserves better. This is the reason she doesn't want to see him.

I feel like a bad sister for refusing to go with him, because she needs someone there to take care of her. But I can't keep putting up with him, it's killing me. And her mother decided whether to send her with him or not. *guilty*

Anyway, fuck him, it's Christmas.
keevacaereni: (fuck this shit)
Delicious is going under.

I'm serious. This is fucking ridiculous. I started the archive in May, for Christ's sake. We have almost 2000 separate bookmarks, and about a thousand tags to deal with. This is not counting my personal Delicious account, by the way. What are Yahoo playing at?

If you use Delicious, get out while you can. Diigo seems decent and imports from Delicious, or Pinboard.in, which costs $7, or Xmarks, which imports from Delicious. Make sure you go to Settings > Export on Delicious, you can just move all your bookmarks across. Not sure how it affects tags or notes yet, though.

Well, I owed you a fic, and here it is! Hope it's okay, and funny enough. :)

Title: Poetry Club
Characters: Maka, Crona, SPOILERS
Rating: G
Summary: The story of how the Shibusen Poetry Club was formed. Crack.

 I quite like it, actually. I'm going to have to get used the new save interfaces, but that's just my irrational fear of change. :)

I don't use the whole tag list when bookmarking, so it doesn't affect me, but I do have this to say: New Delicious? PHENOMENAL COSMIC TAGGING, itty bitty noting space.
