Spending the holidays with the family, marathoning the box set of all the Harry Potter movies and being lightly mauled by Ziggy Stardust (that’s the cat). Good times.
2011 First Lines Meme:
January: I’ve come to the conviction that nobody actually manufactures New Year’s commemorative spectacles or paper hats. They spring forth fully formed once any given party is in full swing, in a kind of celebratory parthenogenesis.
February: Another round of poems – all in one thread this time. (One of them is seventeenth-century tentacle porn. In couplets. No, really.)
March: Continued from yesterday’s post: the conclusion of the adventures of The Steamypuff Girls.
April: Anyone have recommendations for good sites where you can sell used books? (And hopefully DVDs, CDs, etcetera.)
May: For example: several anons from extremely small towns tl;dr about the experience of growing up there.
June: This is a topic I’ve been pondering a lot recently. It’s probably a natural result of following a bunch of Issue-based fandom comms, rec lists, and fests…but honestly, what spurred the post was a bunch of summaries that looked intriguing and thoughtful, leading into fics that were just bad.
July: Just spent my evening finishing off the ebook for But I’m A Cat Person #1, then the rest of the night promoting it everywhere I can.
August: Back in the land of the Internet after almost a week of sporadic access. Computer is groaning under the weight of all the tabs I have open, poor thing.
September: I’ve applied to grad school for library science, starting in the spring semester of 2012.
October: FFA’s reputation in other Internet spaces. Very through-a-glass-darkly. Thread was frozen over contentious discussion of triggering events on other communities, so do tread carefully.
November: The OTW is the topic of the moment, with Yuletide and board elections on the horizon; and I’m glad the meme is around, because now that Metafandom is dead I have no good source for roundups of this stuff.
December: (To the tune of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen)
God Rest Ye, Unitarians
