Reminder: Con.Txt charity raffle's coming up soon!

I'll bet that once upon a time, you acquired one or more cool things for a fandom you loved. A t-shirt, framed fan art, season one DVDs of a series, a complete set of rare action figures.

And now? You don't care about that show or movie or book much anymore, except in the most nostalgic of ways. The t-shirt's never been worn, the DVDs have been watched once, the art and action figures are gathering dust.

So!

If you're going to CON.TXT or if you have friends going and you'd like to support two worthy charities, consider donating some of your cool fannish new/nearly new collectibles to the raffle!

Full info here: https://con-txt.dreamwidth.org/53492.html

Question of the Day # 22

[community profile] questionoftheday asks: What do you hope makes a comeback, or becomes popular again? (question submitted by [personal profile] firewhispers)

My answer:

1) The notion that Nazis are evil and that there's no ~two sides to that issue.

2) Having a president who the world respects. It'd be nice if I respected them, too, BTW.

3) The truth.

4) Rubenesque figures, LOL.

5) Clear air and water (especially for Flint!).

What about you guys? Anything come to mind?

Weekly Fic Wrap Up: Week 28, 2018

I hope everyone's having a fabulous Monday!

Mine started out with me having a scan and almost fainting afterwards. *rolls eyes at self*
Apparently I'm old now and can no longer jump up onto my feet from lying down. *sigh*
The RRT (rapid response team) people were very sweet, though. Once they figured out I wasn't having a heart attack or anything life threatening. :P

Anyway, on to the fic. I was a bit short of my planned goal last week, so fingers crossed I make it up this week!

Ali's list of Fics: July 9th - July 15th )
And here's what's coming up:
Ali’s To-Do/WsIP List )

So I'm beginning to compile my tentative list of holiday fests in which I plan to participate.

A few are definite, as long as the are still being hosted ([info]daily_deviant's Kinky Kristmas, [community profile] adventdrabbles, [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas, [community profile] snape_potter's Snarry Swap, [community profile] dracoharry100 and [community profile] slythindor100's Christmas Challenges), and a few are tentative ([livejournal.com profile] hd_erised - if I can get in, [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost- which may just be a matter of how much time I have, [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus - just because I've never done it before).

So, what fests are you guys doing?
Any hot new fests I need to know about?

Weekly Random Post of Random

  • And, speaking of racism, National Geographic just admit their coverage has been racist for decades. About time!

  • Common house hold products you should never mix.

  • Trump visited the UK this week, where they made it clear what they think of him. Heh. I love how they made it rhyme.

  • And, while we're talking about racist assholes, how about this ridiculous idiot? Now, I live in the reddest of ultra-RED states, and even around here I like to think this guy would be decried, but it's hard not think all Republicans are racist when they keep fielding these candidates.

  • Who runs the animal world? Girls!

  • So I consider myself a part of the resistance to this Nazi president. Apparently, so are these woodchucks. *g*

  • These cakes that look like fuzzy shag rugs are pretty and prolly takes ages to do and I would totally eat them. ;)

  • Need to be cheered up? These 21 stranger interactions should make you smile.

  • Yes, obvious things are obvious, although it's nice to have scientific confirmation.

  • *sigh* Another addition to the long list of things black people can't do. Now we can't listen to yoga CDs in our own cars, apparently.

  • And finally, here a welcome guide for Trump on his visit to Britain. Heh. Alas, he's unlikely to see it. Sad.

  • </ul>
