I love my kitty. I was just away from her for four weeks and I missed her so.

She is beautiful. But she is not the sharpest tool in the shed.

My patio screen door has come away from the frame in the lower right corner. She has figured out that she can go outside through that hole, and she takes the opportunity every single time she goes over there. But when she's ready to come in, she stands outside and meows, because she hasn't realized that she can come in the same hole. I've even reached through and showed her. A couple of times I hauled her through. She still hasn't clued in.

I think that Thomas Harris is a terrible writer. Either that or there is something about his style that I'm just not comprehending. I'm sure all his procedural details and geography are accurate and all but that's another matter. Am I missing something?

So, tonight is the Hannibal season finale.

I am braced for major trauma.

I'm about to sound like an old-fart-curmudgeon. I really don't want to but in this I have no choice.

So, this item appears on my feed.

It has about 20,000 "notes" which means either "liking" or "reblogging". But what the fuck does that mean? If you "liked" it, does that mean you approve of the Christian couple's idiotic prudery? Or are you "liking" the not-so-subtle reading in of sarcasm and derision? Of all the people who reblogged only a handful added something. To which, I presume, no one replied. Is any actual information being communicated here?

What is the actual purpose of all of this?! How can I express my reaction (WTF?) and actually expect someone to actually read it and maybe even react back with words.

I DON'T GET FUCKING TUMBLR!! WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT? YEAH, I LIKE LOOKING AT THE CUTE AND FUNNY PICTURES AND THE HOT PICTURES AND THE SEXY PICTURES IN SUPER SLOW MOTION. BUT WHEN YOU HAVE NO IDEA THAT ANYONE ACTUALLY IS AWARE OF YOUR PRESENCE OR WHAT YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT, OR WHY, OR HOW, OR WHEN -- WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT!

So it seems that I now have three blogs (LJ, Dreamwidth and Tumblr), two twitter accounts, one facebook account and three emails. This is not even counting the various other blogs and services I have signed up for and not really used (pinterest, instagram, skype, etc.).

This is starting to get a little bit out of control, perhaps?

So, first things first: I joined a writing comm! It's called Writerverse http://writerverse.livejournal.com

Technical aside: Is there a way to imbed a link in a Dreamwidth post that can also function as an LJ cut tag? Probably not.

My idea is that I'll be writing more regularly as I participate. You know what they say -- the only way to be a writer is to write. Or something like that. The requirement is to write a little bit, once every two weeks. I just might write more than that. I just might. There is one challenge called the "Table of Doom" that intrigues me. You have a list of prompts you have to incorporate into a work of 20,000 words or more, due by the end of August. Piece of cake!

I have been sorted to Team Prose! We earn points as teams for our various writing endeavours, and also for offering critical commentary.

I have a banner to match the icon above but I'm still working on how to present it on Dreamwidth. I found a place to upload icons but there doesn't seem to be an option for uploading images. I could put it on photobucket I suppose. I'll have to think about how I want to do this. I'm trying to get my both real life and online life streamlined right now.

Anyway, here is a link to my Hannibal fic, at AO3:

Just had a very tasty and healthful vegetarian lunch.
But the music here is this way mellow hippie country-bluesy stuff. I must get out of here-toute suite!

Apparently, someone leaked pics from the Breaking Dawn movie and the producers had to issue a statement begging for people to not release spoilers for their movie.

I mean, really...is there anyone who wants to see that movie who doesn't already know what's going to happen?
