Sometimes I can't resist memes. Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] a_white_rain.

If you had me alone, locked up in your house for twenty-four hours and I had to do whatever you wanted me to*, what would you have me do?

All comments will be permanently screened because it's a secret. Then repost this in your LJ. You might be surprised with the responses you get. Feel free to answer anonymously if you'd prefer.

*As long as you weren't causing me any permanent damage. I think this is an important point.

P.S. Oooh, and I just found a pretty excellent blog post from Bitch Magazine on disability!fail in speculative fiction:
These aren't condemnations of the characters (my love for many of them is strong), but observations of a common trope: "Let's have a disabled character, but with a magic device that means we don't actually have to deal with disability! Ooh, and let's be edgy and give them magic powers!"

Which is oddly enough giving me anti-disability!fail story ideas. *_* MAYBE THERE SHOULD BE A FICATHON. MAYBE THERE ALREADY IS(??)!

Here is how much I love Slumdog Millionaire: SO MUCH. If you have not seen it yet JUST GO DO IT I don't even care if you wait for the dollar theatre or whatever you have to do but IT IS SO WELL DONE and if it grosses highly then Hollywood will give us more movies like this! OKAY?! OKAY!!

Should I do some kind of thing where like if you can prove to me that you've gone to see Slumdog Millionaire I will give you a cookie? Write you a drabble? Pose for pictures naked on the wing of a plane? (I will not do that. Unless Dev Patel asks me personally, in which case I WILL HAVE THE PLANE AND CAMERAS READY.)

(And by the way, the three musketeers are Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. D'Artagnan is the fourth. WHY AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SEEMS TO HAVE ACTUALLY READ THIS BOOK???!!! We push Faulkner in our schools, and not Dumas? Blasphemy.)

P.S. If you've seen/made any super-exciting Slumdog Millionaire icons you should point me to them. :)


We celebrate peace. Yet we pay no attention to the ways of curing aggression in human beings. And when one sees in psychoanalysis hostility disappearing as people conquer their fears, one wonders if the cure is not there.
