But first, a PSA: America’s worst charities. Don’t give money to charities that spend all their money fundraising. When the cause is very small (such as a specific, rare disease), resort to professional fundraisers and a lower percentage going directly to services can be understandable and acceptable. But nothing like these, including Youth Development Fund, which sends 80% of its donations to fundraisers and uses most of the rest to pay a company owned by the “charity’s” founder and president to make scuba-diving videos starring him and then to pay to broadcast those videos. Disgusting. Check names carefully, and check online, especially for anything veteran-related.

Often I cared nothing for the woman I made love to. I cared for the thing she seemed to be hiding from me.

I couldn't resist getting Z. to make this icon, now that I have 100 to play with. Nip/Tuck snippetage is in progress; I'm still thinking about how to pull off the XF and SV prompts.

Someone gave me 12 months of LJ! Thanks, someone! Can I do something nice for you? SV porn, perhaps? (It's occurred to me that this may have happened a while ago, and the notification might be part of the apparent release of long-delayed comments also happening now, in which case I'm really sorry I didn't know before.)

I learned one very important thing from my most recent story: When in doubt, break furniture. Mostly my feedback is varied and singles out different parts of a story, but this time every single person who said anything specific liked the impromptu office redecoration.

Re: vidding. I'm not sure what could be more addictive than this. It's like finding fandom all over again.

Yeah, not as enticing as "Girls, girls, girls" -- or really, given my assumed audience, "boys, boys, boys." But I have many more books than boys (and I'm not sharing him). Fantasy and science fiction.

Wow, a bunch of fiction piled up while I wasn't looking. To spare your screens, I'll do the fantasy now, others in a bit.
