Big crowds in my neigborhood right now

Due to my proximity to Dolores Park, which is the starting point for the Dyke March, which takes off in a few hours and may or may not go by my front door. The Dyke March is incredibly cool and doesn't take any sponsporship. It also doesn't publish an actual route map in advance. One of these days, I'll go on the march itself, but right now I'm sitting at Cafe Petra getting my grubby paws on Dr. Who and just praying that the interpolation of the TW shipwar doesn't fuck up my ship-free Dr. Who series.

Last night, I had dinner with Hubby and the hllangel. We met at the Mint and then went to Woodhouse Seafood Restaurant, since I had promised she would get some fresh seafood while here in the Bay Area. OYSTERS!!!! Yumyumyum.

This morning I went downtown to the Desk of Doom for about an hour. I needed to put in documentation for the Napa Group, in case someone called our clueless after hours service and was told that the reservations didn't exist, thereby leading to a brou-ha-ha. So I did that and also peeked at the email, where problem child #2 was asking for a change to her reservation for Monday. Since I was there and could save myself a bunch of aggro by doing it, I did that do.

I didn't get into a full LJ check, but I did have some glad tidings from beta_goddess, who took a look at the result of Thursday's plot bunny attack. I'll be posting Housefic on Sunday night, but as I mentioned, it's freaking Genfic, with nary a whiff of slashiness.

Then we went to the movies for Get Smart

Afterwards we wanted to go to Samovar for anther tea service, but the one there was a really annoyingly, loud, bad, free concert going on by Yerba Buena Gardens, so we took a cab back to the neighborhood and went to the one on 18th, although we ended up getting stuck in traffic because the cops picked that moment to ticket everyone on 18th by Dolores Park and they were actually trying to tow two cars at the same time, thereby blocking everything.

We finally got there. Hubby had the Matcha and bowl of Jook and I had a very yummy Portobello/Onion/Cheese sandwich with some Earl Grey.

Since we saw the promo for Madagascar 2 at the movie, hubby insisted we pick up the first one at Faye's on the way home. Fine. I'll probably be writing and on-line while we're watching it later.

Attn: Mods of House MD based LJ Communities

And any other interested parties:

I just found THIS posted to ppth_support.

I was not approached to ask permission to post to the Comm prior to the posting.

I'm not sure I'm on board with the premise, especially since this seems to be affiliated with the same convention that tried to sponsor a House-fic contest using the dreaded smushnames for pairings and attempting to discount H/W as a viable pairing.

The fact that they use ODOR as an example of an episode that "helped" people really sticks in my craw.

I'm deeply tempted to delete the post from the comm and send a snippy email stating my reasons for doing so. Have any of you mods been spammed with this thing and were any of you approached to ask permission, and what are you doing about it?

I don't want this to go the Wank of all flesh, but I feel kind of grossed out by the whole thing.

ETA: I've decided to delete the post.

Meme a day 2008-Day 176-Television Fairy Meme

Ganked from bagheera_san

A supernatural glitch in your DVR occurs. At first you panic, hitting lots of random buttons on your remote control, but then are RELIEVED to discover that no, your entire series recording of Golden Girls has not been deleted! But then, just as things appear to be back to normal, there's a puff of smoke, and a fairy appears! You have apparently freed the TV fairy from a televised hell in which she was made to watch endless reruns of Are You Hot?, and as fairies tend to be when freed, she is very grateful and wants to grant you magic wishes.

Now, the fairy has only TV-related powerz, and so she offers you the chance to go back in time and retroactively CHANGE the history of your favorite TV shows with 3.5 wishes!
