My county did voter registration mail-outs this summer, and since my entire household was lazy and forgot to send ours in, I stopped by the county registration office this morning to make sure we were all registered and valid.

I was and my housemate was, but my third housemate was not.  They still had her on file as living at an address from 3 years ago.

The registration deadline for this year's Nov. 2 election in our county is today by 4:00 pm.  Thankfully I brought back a registration transfer form so my housemate could fill it out, but I think that's a national deadline, and there's not much time left, so please please please, if you are at all in doubt about where you're registered or if you've moved within the past year and didn't change your registered voting address, please drop what you're doing and get to your voting office today to find out.  There's just a couple of hours left but those couple of hours mean one more vote against Bush in this state that would have been lost had I not dropped by to check.

PSA, over and out.

    you've gotta be--kidding me. i'm through with you boy, anyway.

H/D fic, post-OOTP. And how we aren't writing any.

emmagrant01 has a discussion about the state of the h/d fic union.  And I'm pretty sure that one of the things that prompted said discussion was one she and I had a couple of weeks ago.  I say this because I've been thinking a lot about that discussion myself since, and actually right before I came home and read her post I was thinking about it again. 

I told girlsigh to post her thoughts in her own journal, so I guess I'll do the same as encouragement, Collapse )

Oh! And while I'm ranting!  Can I just say!  Rufus Wainwright is so turning out to be the Billy Joel of his generation.  Everybody loves him, everybody recognizes that he's like, so fucking brilliant, and everyone loves his songs, except me, because, like Billy Joel, while I admit that, yeah, he's great, he's wonderful, blah blah blah, something about Rufus Wainwright's music leaves me totally cold and unaffected and bored--while the rest of the world falls to its knees.

Dorrie:  I think Rufus' fan base is a lot more solid right now than the H/D fandom. ;)


Alright, you crazy pickles, I am off for the night to actually tackle this insane h/d thingamabobber i profess to write.  Thank you to all of you!  You guys have given me so much to mull over on this post, and this one.  i am holding out for reena's post, and then dorrie, or david, or possibly even azalais or lasair if we get lucky.  :D

I will be coming back to this discussion later, hopefully psyched from h/d fic, in which i shall take arms against a sea of post-ootp troubles, and, by opposing, slash them.

Oh! Before I go! Two things!

geoviki, zionsstarfish, novembersnow, and shaggirl are all doing the "ask my characters things" meme, respectively, here, here, here, and here.  I am drooling. <3
