[personal profile] leish asked me to talk about "a story you would really like to read that doesn't exist yet, or doesn't exist quite how you want it to" for the 17th.

stories about girls )

Then I was going to complain about this other pairing that scandalously had no fics for it last time I looked, but now there is ONE so I'm going to go read that, hooray!

For December 15th, [personal profile] fitz_y asked me to name my top five femslash ships in any fandom, ever, and this caused me to reflect that I don't have much experience with what I think of as the big femslash ships. I like femslash and I think a lot of people see me as a femslasher, but I don't have the really strong feelings about any femslash pairings that I have more often had for boyslash pairings.

I mean other than Gwen/Morgana )

So idk trying to answer this sort of made me feel like a bad femslasher. :( I really do like all kinds of ships! Just not usually in an epic way.

[personal profile] eruthros asked me to say "something about vidding? Maybe how you think about the process of vidding vs the process of writing or podficcing? Or a vid commentary? Or something like that?"

idk )

There is my post about vidding! [personal profile] emei also made a post about vidding for the December meme today, and it's much more coherent than mine, hurrah! Now I shall go rewatch some source! And maybe tomorrow I'll see about making some clips and even putting them into iMovie, and then I will feel better about the Festivids checkin this weekend. Thanks, [personal profile] eruthros!

[personal profile] via_ostiense asked me about my favorite flavor of ice cream. If I had to choose one I'd probably say coffee, but I also appreciate strawberry, cookies and cream, and some other flavors. I used to go to Dairy Queen and get mud pie Blizzards, or peanut butter cup ones, those are awesome. But there aren't a lot of Dairy Queens near where I live now and I guess I haven't missed it much. Frozen yogurt is bigger around here and I've always thought fro-yo tasted kind of weird.

I'm not really into ice cream in general these days. I used to buy cartons and then it would stay in the freezer for months and months and get gross. B buys it and I'll have a little dish from time to time. I also used to really like gelato from certain fancy gelato places, but on the other hand never really got excited about the fancy local ice cream places that B and other friends of mine love. One of the flavors my friends get excited about is salted caramel and I can't stand that stuff, ugh.

And since it's a Wednesday let's do a quick reading meme. I finished Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver, continued to like but not love it. I read a pretty good chunk of Purple Hibiscus this week and just a little bit of Claire of the Sea Light, still haven't really gotten into that one. Then last night the ebook of Gillian Flynn's Dark Places became available through my library, so I expect to be reading that and nothing else for the next few days. Right now I'm about a quarter of the way through and pretty well engrossed, though so far I'm not enjoying it nearly as much as I did Gone Girl, which kinda ate up my life when I read it last year.

Oh, and I skimmed a library book called 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget which I'm pretty sure is just a compilation of blog posts from Wise Bread. It's pretty repetitive and silly but, you know, nice for glancing through, lots of lists of little tips for saving money on groceries, gifts, etc.

[personal profile] veleda_k asked me to talk about a book that influence me. I'm finding this hard! I can think of a lot of books that made a big impression on me at the time that I read them but seeing the influence later is harder.

Boo Sunday afternoon! As I explained the other day, Sunday afternoons and evenings are when I stress and get sad about not being ready for Monday. Something I forgot to say in that post is that B watches football on Sunday afternoons and evenings and yells at the TV, and it makes Sundays worse for me.

Oh well, feels good to get caught up on a meme at least!

Happy birthday, [personal profile] baranduin! I miss you and hope you are having a good day. Thank you for making this icon and for being so smart and honest and kind.
