Olympics and Surfing (but not at the same time)

A reminder that if you're interested in the Angst vs. Schmoop SPN Olympics at spn_heraea, please to be reading and voting on stories in the comments!

Sadly, after the initial stories, there's been less voting-- lots of wonderful comments, but few votes (and authors writing for these Olympics can't vote, for obvious reasons).

I'm feeling grumbly because someone wandered through and hit my schmoop entry with a vote of 5.0 out of 10, which pisses me off. I haven't read any stories that I'd consider as low as a 5, although there was one that I just didn't get and didn't work for me, so I didn't leave a comment.

Now, the schmoop stories that were really more angst than schmoop? Oh yes— she loved those (don't we all!). But... if angst is your bias, you kind of have to temper that into your vote. Now I'm kind of wishing that the single lowest and highest votes would be tossed (like they used to do for Olympic figure-skating— heavens, the politics!). I.e., I can personally blow the vote off as a bizarre anomaly, but... it does drag the Team Schmoop average down, and that bugs me. Grrrr...

Onto a happier topic: we saw Surf's Up on Father's Day, and really enjoyed it. Collapse )

And in other news, we finished Season 5 of The Shield on DVD already. That's partly because it was 11 episodes and not 13! What happened there? Incredible season, nonetheless. Oh, Forrest Whitaker, what a talented guy you are...
