In her recent post, [livejournal.com profile] apocalypsos wrote this:

I just like knowing what ideas I've got on hand even if I'm not going to use them, you know? I feel like I want to do like I did with Heroine Addiction, where I kinda just sat down and made a short list of stuff I either like to read about or write. So, "bisexuals" + "superheroes" + "wee little cafe" = FUNSIES. I'm just going to end up throwing, like, "disasters" and "wizards" and "gay romance" and "mpreg" and "reality TV" and "cooking" and "travel" and "surprise pregnancy stories" and anything else I can come up with at a wall and seeing what sticks.

I thought, 'Hey, that's a great idea!' For my original fiction and for fanfic. So I tried it:

See full page under cut. The concept of a 'short list' wasn't one of those things that sticks. )

HERE HAVE SOME FUN. There's two, possibly three things that appear twice on the list. Notice them?

Also, there appear to be some interesting groupings that I'm afraid to say reveal certain things about my psyche. For example, one column goes: secrets, amoral killers, redemption, vampires, demons, politicians. Did I ever tell y'all I was a poli sci major?

After that, I typed them all up, printed them out, cut them into little fortune-cookie sized strips and have them sitting in a plastic CD stack lid that's turned upside down to be my desk's interpretation of a grab-bag.

Hi flist. I rarely ask this of you, but this is one of the times when I'm coming to you for help. I'm really, truly concerned about the budget crisis in California right now, and the governor's intention to cut funding for family planning is a devastating stroke for relatively little saving (and in th long time, serious loss) of budget funds. The letter I posted below gives greater detail. But for every 1 dollar the state invests in family planning, it saves $5.33 down the line in health costs.

Here is the sample letter I used. If you live in California, or care about California's budget, I highly encourage you to send this email out to the legislators in your county area. Not just your personal legislator, but the five or ten Assembly Members and Senators that cover your region.

Assembly Members: Contact Directory
Assembly: District Map
State Senators: Email List
State Senate: District Map

Dear (name of legislator),

I'm e-mailing today because I'm concerned that to solve the state's budget crisis, Gov. Schwarzenegger has proposed cutting women's health care by singling out one Medi-Cal program- family planning. This program provides health care to millions of women including cancer screenings, reproductive and basic health care.

90% of family planning is funded by the federal government. California puts up one dollar and the federal government gives us $9 more. So we'd actually be increasing our deficit by cutting this program.

AND 90% of the people served by state family planning programs are women, [80% of whom are women of color].

Surely the women of California are worth 10 cents of state money for a dollar of critical health services.

The Governor has targeted women and we need you to just say no. We're asking you to reject the Governor's proposed cut to family planning! Don't hurt the women of California.

(Your name)
(Your address if you choose)

Here's the list of state legislators for the Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino County areas. )

If you do send out emails because you read this, please comment below and let me know which Senator you emailed, so I can keep track of the numbers I'm encouraging, thanks.

For this meme, pick a fictional character and any fandom (excluding the fandom the first fictional character hails from) and I will tell you who is that fictional character's favorite character from that fandom.

For example, if I was given the Tenth Doctor (Doctor Who) and Heroes, I would go:

"The Tenth Doctor's favorites would probably be Ando and Claire. Ando because he tries hard, makes up for his mistakes, never gives up, and is loyal to the end. Because he's a bit like Donna, with his attitude and clear thinking. The Doctor would have a soft spot for Claire, though, because she's brave and true (and blond.) He would totally ship Nikki/D.L./Micah as an OT3 family."

I'm good for anime/manga, tv, book, and movie fandoms, though not for comics. gakked from [livejournal.com profile] redbrunja

Character: Billy (not Horrible)
Fandom: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

1. Do you like this character?
I feel for him more than like him. I sympathize with him, I like writing fic for him, but I don't know if I'd want to be his friend IRL. He's pretty selfish.

2. What name/s do you call this character?
Billy [Buddy]

3. What image-color do you associate with this character?
Gray & Blue

4. What image-song do you associate with character?
"One Headlight" by The Wallflowers: "I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else / Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same / But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams / I think her death it must be killin' me."

5. What blood-type do you think this character is?
B-. I don't know what that means in terms of culturalization, but if B comes after A in the alphabet, Hammer would be A and Billy would be B. Negative, obviously.

6. Of all of the titles that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?
I'm not sure I understand the first half of the question...Penny?

7. What would you want to say to this character?
Let's talk. I brought comfort food. Someone, right here, is listening to whatever you have to say.

8. Which do you want to do with this character: Shake hands, hug, or kiss?
HUG. He needs a lot of hugging, this guy.

9. Please choose 5 friends with your choice of character.
Your choice: [livejournal.com profile] hakeber, [livejournal.com profile] riddering, [livejournal.com profile] donna_c_punk, [livejournal.com profile] jaina, [livejournal.com profile] lilyayl

1. If you could bust into three songs before to a crowd, and sing them beautifully and stun your audience, what would those songs be?

For the sexy opportune moment in a bar: "Mein Herr" from Cabaret.

For bursting into a bombastic ballad while strolling down the avenue sidewalk: "Somebody to Love" by Queen

For the romantic couple in the park: "The Rose" by Bette Midler

15 more questions. I don't usually indulge in memes, but I'm bored. )

I usually avoid these things due to a crushing insecurity of the soul, but sometimes you gotta suit up. And hell, after 10 years of fanfic reviews I should be able to take anything.

Can you believe it? Four votes! That was the tensest fandom thing I've been part of in a long time. Weirdly.

I voted for Spike earlier because I love him and will forever, but I surprised myself and voted for Veronica against him this time. WE NEED MORE LADIES.

And I also voted for Jon Stewart against Barney. I love Barney...but I love Jon too, and Jon will love us back whereas Barney only loves Robin and that guy in the mirror so, so, choices had to be made!

WHY SHOULD YOU VOTE FOR THE DOCTOR over stupid Dean Winchester?

AND THIS, even though this video makes me kinda want to hate Ten, it still enthralls me.

Luckily Ten is a positive vote coming from me, as Mal would have been had he won, but even if I didn't love Doctor Who, I'd still vote against Dean-who-calls-people-a-bitch-Winchester.


ETA: I voted for Booth over House because, obviously, House is 98.6% ASSHOLE and Booth is, like, a really, really good guy who's also incredibly hot and shoots things and is tall and funny.

Take the first sentence (or 2) from the first post of each month of 2008. That's your year in review.

January: For Christmas I received a one-pound box of See's Chocolates, Assorted Dark. I've only got two pieces left in my box, and it's only been a week since Christmas, on top of all the other cookies and various candies around to snack on. God, See's chocolate should be illegal.

Big news! I use LJ for fannish stuff. Yes, you all must be so shocked. )
