I will never forget the first time you posted in my journal saying something because I was so amazed that the Famous Snacky of the Famous Snacky's Law was talking to me.

Yes, I'm that lame. ;)

You are an incredibly witty person. I can't count the number of times I've started giggling at comments you've made. You also have a very clear and rational way of viewing events, and believe me this is a compliment of the highest order. I've always felt as if I can share things with you without censure; even if you disagree, I know you'll explain why and how and we'll still be friends at the end of the exchange. Even OTPs.

1. Reply to this post if you'd like some ego boosting.

2. Watch my journal over the next few days for a post just about you, only you, and why I think whatever I do about you.

Alli-kun so totally stroked my ego. No one has actually said I'm FUNNY before!!! *slips him a twenty on the side* ;)


I've been rereading the Belgariad, by whathisface, recently and I'm finding it harder and harder to ignore the subtle mysogyny in it. There is some overt feminism - some women might actually be good rulers! - but the mysogyny slithers into all of the crevaces and may end up with me no longer reading the books if I reach the point where I can't stomach it... which would be a first for me; I've stopped reading books because I didn't like them, but not because I liked them but disapproved of the assumptions and values of the world created.

Let me explain what I mean by subtle mysogyny, since I'm here. Take the character of Polgara - the daughter of Belgarath and a powerful sorceress and disciple of Aldur. There is an overt reference to and sidestepping of overt mysogyny when she is declared the last - her father says he wasn't used to the idea of women as disciples or equals and the implication is that was obviously wrong - but the subtle mysogyny infuses her entire existence as a character through the following:

Cleo-chan tagged me, and since she's some BNF in Search of a Fandom, or something, I figured the least I could do is bend to her twisted and egotistical will. *le sigh* ;)

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

Just for the record - I refuse to tag. If y'all want to post your seven favorite songs, go for it.

1. Shell, from Witch Hunter Robin, an anime.

2. Away from Me, by Evanescence. It's from one of their pre-making-it-big albums.

3. Inner Universe, by Yoko Nakko, from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, another anime.

4. Broken, by Seether - the version with Amy Lee.

5. Whatever I Fear, by Toad the Wet Sproket.

6. Anarchy, by KMFDM.

7. Fade Away, by Seether. Yes, I put in Seether twice. Yes, this is because I bought their CD a few months back. Yes, it's because the song Broken was on the radio. Yes, I am a tool of mass media - fuck off. ;)

The band I want desperately to get into and yet have managed to not buy a single CD of is Cruxshadows.

Oh, and btw, please don't nudge me. If you really want to know what's going on with me, and I'm not being enough of a monkey to dance for your entertainment, send me a fucking email. I get (and write) enough form letters at work; I really don't want to get them from my "friends." ktnxbai
