Gorgeous Asked Questions (GAQ)
- Se sono un Invitato o un Imbucato posso fare supposizioni sugli altri?
Naturalmente, purché commenti la storia come tutti gli altri.
- Se sono un Invitato o un Imbucato posso fare supposizioni sulla mia storia al solo scopo di confondere le acque?
Sì, ma non verrai ricompensato in alcun modo per questo.
- Quando un Invitato scrive una storia facendosi passare per un altro autore, può sceglierlo a caso o l'autore da imitare viene stabilito dagli admin?
È l'iscritto a decidere quale o quali autori desidera imitare, in base alle proprie preferenze.
- Ci sono delle caratteristiche predefinite di stile, fandom ecc che un Invitato debba imitare forzatamente di un dato autore o no?
Basatevi sul buonsenso: scegliete fandom che l'autore-bersaglio predilige, pairing particolarmente amati, un certo tipo di narrazione o di esposizione... anche i piccoli particolari come i banner o le note dell'autore possono aiutare. Ovviamente, non azzardatevi a plagiare! XD

I'll Tell You What I Want, What I Really, Really Want Meme

Ganked from stellaluna.

List the top ten things you want, right now at this very moment. Silly, serious, insane, it doesn't matter.

1. To know for a fact that every single horrible Character Assassination and Castration spoiler for Torchwood is a lie, and TPTB are just jerking the fans around and that Jack will be shown emphatically and graphically to be real!Jack and not smushymushycurtainbuying pod person.

2. To find the notebook I lost in October 2008 that had my detailed outline for the NOVEL.

3. For my laptop to stop telling me it's almost out of disk space.

4. To be back in Maui, sitting on my lanai at the Lahaina Shores, listening to the waves.

5. A full body massage, preferably with hot rocks.

6. An afternoon at the Mint with my friend Rich. He's a key figure in the NOVEL and I'm having trouble hearing his voice because I haven't seen him in over a year.

7. To see the Star Trek movie.

8. Reinstatement of my salary back to before the pay cut and a raise on top of that.

9. PUUUUUPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEE (Which means a house and yard, as well, but I only want the house and yard so I can have the PUUUUUUUPPPPPPPEEEEEEEE!!!!)

10. Oysters, clam chowder and do-it-yourself lemonade at the Woodhouse Fish Company.
fatuous lunatic

Keith reads Mark Sanford's emails to his mistress.

Yeah, it's cheesy and it's sleazy. Rachel couldn't (or wouldn't) even read them on the air. She just put them on the screen for the viewers to read themselves. Meanwhile Keith went all the way including the unbelievable background music.

As I said, yesterday...it wouldn't matter, IF he weren't a self-righteous, anti-gay rights cretin who thought Bill Clinton should have resigned...for lying about having an affair. It ain't the sex, it's the hypocrisy.

Plus, Keith's delivery is absolutely PRICELESS.

P.S.---In case you didn't know, Ana Marie Cox is going to be hosting the Rachel Maddow Show on Friday and I doubt she'll be the least bit squeamish in discussing any of this. Be there or be square. (I was going to say "subbing for Rachel" but figured that was NOT a good idea.)

Possible #3----TMZ Reporting Michael Jackson dead


I know this sounds creepy, but if it's true I feel really bad for Farrah because that would totally kill her night of coverage. If Michael Jackson is dead, I'd say that's gotta be the bigger story.

ETA---Apparently it already is, just based on the heart attack and the rumors of his death.

ETA-332PM-CNN Confirms death.

Mark Sanford must be one grateful SOB right about now.

Song Lyric Prompt-a-Day 2009 Day 177

Prompts can be used for any fandom, pairing, or even original fic, if you like. (Yes, any.) All I ask is that you credit me with providing the prompt and comment with a link to the entry.

Prompt #177

Blithe smile, lithe limb
She who's winsome, she wins him
Gold hair with a gentle curl
That's the girl he chose
And Heaven knows
I'm not that girl.

I'm Not That Girl-Idina Menzel
Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
From the album Wicked-Original Broadway Cast Recording
