I know I’m not in the Pagan community anymore, but I think I just discovered the Pagan version of Godwin’s Law: bringing up the Burning Times during an argument.

If you let me down, I will forgive you.
If you break my heart, I may not want to see you for a while, but I won’t hold a grudge.
If you say “acrost,” “irregardless,” insist anything is “addicting,” or say anything is “comprised of” something else, I will stab you in your smug fucking face.
All of the above, and: overusing ellipses in text messages and Facebook posts; and using slurs as punchlines. They’re not ungrammatical, but still very incorrect and unforgivable.Source: nookienostradamus

God, I hate Facebook.
I post about preparing for Tropical Storm Flossie, in part so that what little family I do follow on FB will know how I’m doing. Right away, some chucklehead with whom I haven’t spoken in years and whose status updates I have unfollowed (but whom I have not unfriended) says “prepared to be flossed.”
Har har. Google “Hurricane Iniki” sometime and see if you still find tropical storms funny.

*peeks in on Sherlock fandom* Oh my.
*retreats into Hannibal fandom, where it’s all cute dogs and flower crowns and good-lookin’, talented people… and gruesome death tableaux and psychological fuckery and cannibalism*
No, really, I cannot tell you how tired I am of “I’m not in this fandom, but…” posts.
Newest pet peeve: “I don’t watch the show, but I like the fandom.”
Bonus pet-peeve points for creating fanworks for such fandoms (super bonus if these are items for sale).
I am so tired of “I don’t even watch this show, but…” posts.
I have two days to fill a Johnlock prompt, and I have writer’s block. My prompt is a line of dialogue: “I think this may very well kill me.” I’d like to write something that deals at least in part with their first few weeks living together, but nothing is really coming to mind. Ugh. How do I words?

I am trying to set up a queue of Christmas songs and I am failing miserably because I just remembered that I’m not really that into Christmas. I mean, I enjoy getting together and having dinner and such, and I especially enjoy it these days because it means I get to go back to Detroit to see my mom.
But I’m not a Christmas connoisseur, y’know? For every Christmas song I like (“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” performed with the original lyrics and with an appropriate amount of pathos), there are three I hate (“Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “12 Days of Christmas,” I’m glaring at all of you).
So if you have recommendations for Christmas music that doesn’t make me want to stab out my eyes with a candy cane, I’d love to hear them.
