You seriously just said that?
I just got Godwined. For telling someone to vote.
Is there etiquette for (after the fact; no longer in the jackass's presence) saying how offensive that is?
Current Mood: GRRRRRR

JK Rowling has ... um, kind of gone insane

Jinx? What Jinx?
I would like to take this opportunity to note that as of this moment, RDR-wank has finally disappeared from my friends page. I'd do a celebratory dance, but my roommate's asleep. Also, there's a comb in my hair and I'm worried it'd fly out and hit something.
... Okay, scratch the roommate being asleep. But the point still stands.

|David Tennant is a dork.
I've been searching for a good bit now trying to find the entirety of a quiz show some British TV types did on the occasion of the West Wing series finale. It was called the Ultimate West Wing Challenge, and was fairly hilarious.
So far, all I found is part one
. Which, really, is worth it, just for the walk-and-talk.
If anyone has links to Part 2 or Part 3, I'd be grateful. Current Mood: fantastic, obviously

Dammit, JF, let me log in!
I know there's system drama afoot, but why won't you let me log in? Sad panda.

Because it's late and I still have bio homework to do, I'll say this here. I realized today that much of my love life can probably be explained by my conscious decision to become a Cubs fan. It wasn't like I was raised to be one (though my grandmother apparently loved them), but I decided in 1998 that hey, I was gonna give this baseball-fan thing a try. Of course, I had to pick a team with both a long record of futility and little chance of doing anything to better itself. Also, a complete lack of appreciation for closers.
People smarter than me
(scroll down to April 16, 2003 or just find "Rushin") have written about what it's like to be a Cubs fan as opposed to other fans, so I won't get into that. Except to say this: it's mostly about loving something not just in spite of its imperfections, but because of it. Sure, it'd be easier if we won more or had actual relief pitching or, you know, pitching in general. But you don't love something just because it's easy. You love it because you love it, and that's all that matters. I suppose you could do some kind of meta-analysis of sports fans and the ways they appreciate their teams, but really, I think that's what it comes down to for me. I don't love the Cubs because they're good, or because I was brought up to love them, or because blue pinstripes are hot. (Although now that you mention it ...) I love them because once upon a time, there was this team I liked to watch, and they won every once in a while, and that was enough for me.
