Idol sign-ups have just a few days left...  
And I'm hoping some of you will join me! tsuki_no_bara, desertport, clair_de_lune, and deirdre_c in particular, this is right up your alley! Sign ups for one and all are here!

Some more randomness for you: a terrific flowchart on Should I Work For Free?, and this puzzling picture.

Was it Harry Potter Day at the U.N.? How are those not wizard costumes? I'll say this, Putin does not look... best pleased. ;O

Ah, I'm afraid that original fic/essay writing is not my cup of tea, but thanks for thinking of me, and I'm definitely looking forward to voting you to victory in this next round! :)

But it COULD be! It COULD! *breaks out pom-poms* \o/

:D

I'll appreciate your support, though. I always do! ♥

Oh, dear! On the one hand, it would be a good thing because I never have idea to write original fic anymore: it would incite/help me to go there. But on the other hand, I'm afraid that time and inspiration won't let me play ^__^

Putin and Bush... Are they in a Merlin play or something in that pic? O_o

You could always try it out, and see how you do!

My first season, I thought I'd be lucky to make it to week 8. Quelle surprise!

I cannot, in that picture, think of those outfits as anything OTHER than wizard costumes. What else could they possibly be? \o?

it would be right up my alley if i could write anything that wasn't a bigbang.... i facepalm at myself.

i love that that putin post refers to him as a badass, and yet the pic of him and the shrub is SO SILLY. no one looks like a badass in a blue wizard robe that looks like it came from a costume shop.

Try! Try! I'll bet you'd surprise yourself. :D

I don't know what that picture is doing in there, but I love it because it's SO absurd.

But most of the other pictures feature things like harpoon-wielding-Putin, or (at least twice) shirtless!Putin. :O

Oy! I wish I could do this, because I had so much fun writing original fic in workshops in school. Sadly, I'm a little over-committed these days. Remind me again when Exhibit C comes along?
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on May 9th, 2013 06:16 am (UTC)
I sure will! I'd love to see what you'd come up with. :)

There is no Exhibit C.

On the other hand, there will be a Season 9.

I didn't think there was going to be an Exhibit B, either, so I held out hope.

Getting people to dive into a regular season is even harder!

My directed pimping found no fertile soil as it is. :(

At the start of Exhibit A, I said that I broke the fundraising into two parts. ;)

Well, the fact that it's their last chance to play in a regular season will hopefully motivate people!

Fertile soil or not, it's very much appreciated. Thank you!

*giggles* I didn't know that George and Vladimir were Druids. Or wizards. Or even weirdos! No, hang on, I had an idea they were weirdos! ;)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on May 9th, 2013 05:38 pm (UTC)
Haha! I just didn't think they were weird in this particular way. ;)

How do you post a picture like that on the Internet and not explain what it is? The costumes demand explanation! Or we'll make up our own stuff.

Unless it's exactly what it looks like. :O
