Their 'funny quote of the day': "There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them." – Sylvia Plath.

I don't know why it's funny either, unless of course it's the screaming irony?

WARNING AND YUCK

fanfic-journal.com is scraping anything tagged 'fanfic', pretty much, and reposting. I tag my stuff 'fic' so I should be safe, but I encourage any of you guys to go and check. The scumbug who runs this thing seems to take stuff down if you complain (although not very fast judging by the small number of people listed as no-longer-being-scraped). Their pathetic 'Creative Commons lets me take anything I want without permission' stand is also awful, of course, and I'm hoping if we turn up the heat enough they'll go away.

A few months ago [livejournal.com profile] dorathenymph introduced to me to the Glee of Colour 2048. At that point I’d never played 2048, just heard that it was the new super-popular compulsive game a la Candy Crush. BUT OMG FANNISH 2048, with pretty pictures of Unique and Jake and Santana, and a hilarious final tile? I was totally hooked.

Horribly, horribly hooked.

I always like playing games while treating Youtube videos as podcasts? And now...

Since then I have played, and mostly won: an Orphan Black 2048, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer 2048, a Natasha Romanov 2048, a Scarlett Johansson 2048, a Chris Evans 2048, an Eliza Dushku 2048, a Robert Downey Jr 2048, a Glee couples 2048, a Santana Lopez 2048, a Buffy Summers 2048, a rainbows 2048, a femmeslash 2048, a hentai 2048, a Kurt Hummel 2048, a Harry Potter 2048, a Sherlock 2048, a Women of Sci-fi 2048, a Weasley family 2048, a Brittana 2048, a Rihanna 2048, a Draco Malfoy 2048, a Noel Fielding 2048, a lesbians 2048, a Disney princesses 2048, a Legend of Korra 2048, a Last Airbender 2048, a Last Airbender animals 2048, a Rachel Berry 2048, a Doctors 2048, a New Who Companions 2048, a West Wing 2048, a Pretty Little Liars 2048, a Number 6 2048, a Kuroshitsuji 2048, an Avengers 2048, another Kuroshitsuji 2048, a Marvel superheroes 2048, a Thor 2: The Dark World 2048, a Torchwood 2048, a Vampire Diaries 2048, a Glee 2048, a Klaine kisses 2048, a Catching Fire 2048, a Spuffy 2048, a saucy Tom Hiddleston 2048, a Marvel women 2048, a vlogbrothers 2048...

...and some others I’ve forgotten.

Send help.

Ack internet

My internet at the hotel's messed up - that is, it's connected and working but I can't use it. It keeps telling me I need a browser log-in, and redirecting me to a page via microsoft.com to a page with what looks like an IP in the URL. It wants a username and password and things, 'exactly what my ISP gave me', except of course this is a public network via my hotel. Same thing happened when I tried logging on to someone's unsecured wifi. Any ideas for what I can do other than try to get the password/username/whatever off the hotel people, which should be entertaining considering the size of the language barrier?

This has never happened to me before and it seemed to happen completely at random, but it does seem like my laptop is doing it, not the networks, since they're still showing up fine. (Although annoyingly my Kindle was too slow for me to really do anything. This shouldn't be inflicted on someone still very much recovering from a stomach bug, ffs.)

Anyway. I'll be at work for another couple of hours doing lesson-planning - if someone could help me out or give me a link to somewhere I can use to help me out, that would be FANTASTIC. My Google-fu is weak today, it seems.

I use Windows and Firefox (though Chrome didn't seem to work, either.) PLEASE GUYS. WILL SWAP PR0N FOR INTERWEBZ.

I LOGGED ONTO DREAMWIDTH ON A WORK COMPUTER, THAT IS THE EXTENT OF MY DESPERATION.

Tidings of Yule

Twitter just sent me an email with the subject line ‘because you have more to show’. I’m not just imagining the suggestive tone there, am I? Because I saw that and was like, clutching the tattered remains of my privacy like a Victorian maiden post-ravishing. What satisfaction canst thou have tonight, Twitter?? You’ve already seen everything I’m going to show!

ANYWAY.

Yuletide! What did you guys nominate? Do you think you're going to play?

I nominated... )

Two bits of news:

After weeks and weeks, I have a working laptop again! HUZZAH!

I got a tumblr. I still find the place weird and unsettling )


joomla visitor

BUT. Being an Avengers fan, I wish to be where basically all of fandom is happening. Only it is all still new and weird! Let’s follow each other, guys, plz. I need you in this strange new world. *clings to flist*

I’m lokifan.tumblr.com, natch. For a second when I signed up Tumblr was all ‘that username is taken’ and I was all AM I GONNA HAVE TO CUT A BITCH? but then Tumblr changed its mind. Thank goodness.

Even if being an Avengers fan with this username makes people assume I am a bb!fan. I have had a response or two on the Thor kinkmeme that was blatantly someone kindly explaining to me how kinkmemes work :D

WHAT. OMG.

I mean apparently this is ancient news, but I had no idea. The author of The Outsiders writes Supernatural fanfic!

If only it wasn't Supernatural. I mean. S E Hinton writing stories about boys and their bonds? We KNOW this is fucking epic. Oh God.

She confirmed it on Twitter here. YOU GUYS.

All I want in the whole world right now is Avengers fanfic from her. I mean, it's about boys and their bonds, brothers who misunderstand and turn away from each other despite deep love, this macho little gang of outsiders who are fun and sparky and fucked in the head and sekritly love each other so much. PLEASE WRITE FIC FOR IT MS HINTON PLEASE.

I'm sitting on [personal profile] son_of_darkness' bed and just used the term "hipster shipping", which is SO a thing, and he wanted me to post about that. But a: I really have no thoughts, I mean follow your bliss, although I prefer that your bliss not involve snobbery about shipping rarepairs and b: ALL MY THOUGHTS ARE OUTSIDERS THOUGHTS

I DON'T EVEN WATCH SUPERNATURAL IT'S LIKE SOME CRUEL COSMIC JOKE

NOTHING GOLD CAN STAAAY

lokifan: Scrubs cast leaping and cheering (Yay! scrubs)
I WAS JUST PREPARING A MASSIVE POST FULL OF LINKS AND RAGE AND USEFUL INFO AND NOW IT IS ALL USELESS

I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY, EVER, TO HAVE WASTED SOME TIME

SOPA IS DEAD!

Read the news here!

Obviously more activism will be needed in coming days and weeks and months and years. But just look at that, guys, and enjoy!

Firstly, YAY SIDNEY IS WORKING AGAIN!!! He's a bit sensitive, but he WORKS! :DDDDDD

Today (Monday) is the beginning of Three Weeks for Dreamwidth. In a nutshell, the idea is that while we cross-post and get to have nice comments and conversations at Dreamwidth, the majority of people comment and talk at LJ – despite being able to comment openID, and quite a few people having DW accounts that lie unused.

So for three weeks, everything is being posted only over there! If you like, I’ll provide links to the content here, and you can always comment using your LJ account at DW, via openID. The idea is to encourage more chat and friendliness over there.

I hope this doesn’t come off to Moral Judgement-y about your choice of journaling service. I’ll still be on LJ, for one thing. Well, I won’t, because I have a deadline on Thursday and an exam Friday week, but in theory I’m on LJ. This isn’t a three-week boycott! And I love you all.

But I like Dreamwidth a lot: the ethics, the team, and the service are better than on LJ. Plus, soft spot for the underdog. So I want to help with this!

Let me know if you want links. I’ll be posting the stuff here once Three Weeks for Dreamwidth is finished, anyway. So you can always wait. :)

And here is a drabble, to reward anybody who read that Teal Dear.
