So, I've survived yet another day-trip to visit my mother. And stepfather. Surprisingly, so have they. maeyan is the Bestest BFF ever, just so y'all know; she helps me retain my sanity under the insaneliest of conditions.

There is Better Buffy Slash. Which I appear to have come into possession of. And the joy of trying to figure out what people are and are not supposed to be talking about when recommending and reviewing stories. Ah, slash + fannish critique + controversial story subjects + strong personalities + me having had it up to here with the suggestion that There Is A Line... It's like shooting wank in a barrel.1

I imagine the thing to do in this situation would be... actually post something on the list, as I haven't yet, not even as a member. This will most likely happen tomorrow. When I have not been awake for...

Hmm. Only 13 hours, actually, but they were mom-and-willie hours, which is a bit like overtime. Time-and-a-half. Without holiday pay. Half bearable, a quarter actually enjoyable, and a quarter....

Put it this way -- the words "Mother, that's the drive-through! Yes, really. Oh dear god. I am not bailing you out. [Pause while I hide in the rental car and pretend deeply not to know them. And by deeply I mean how far under the dash I've ducked.] Arrrgh...We are </i>all</i> going to be arrested..." wailed their way out of my mouth at one point, and I was a) serious and b) not having fun. No, I'm not providing more details.

On the other hand I have new shoes2. 2 pair. 28 bucks total. Not bad. And I'm still not dead in a ditch, TBQ!

1 No, I am not suggesting that any of the individual members are being wanky or impolite; I'm saying, mmmm, all the ingredients for fannish insanity, packed into one tight little space -- just add hot water and away we go. It's like Instant Lunch with kerfuffle noodles instead of ramen.

2 Yes, I know they're supposed to go on your feet. But I'm tired and somewhat crack-addled, so it shiouid be obviuis thast I'mstasnsduingh on mkyu hanjsd in myu nwe shioes asnmsd tyupinmgh wuityhj nmyu feety..

Aw, you're going to be the rockingest listmum. And I think you should mandate joke-telling and neck rubs. Everyone has to post a lame joke, once a week. If they don't post a joke, they have to give a neck rub. To a person assigned to them at random, so there's no favouritism or monkey business. Well, no favouritism at least.

You could borrow saussy and _flaming_june_'s Sodomizer, from their slashficathon. And you could use its added spork-and-spindle (with thrilling pulse action) option for anyone who loses sight of the main objectives and gets trolly.

The main objectives being, as I see them, fun, fellowship, and porn.

Congratulations on not killing any family members.

fun, fellowship, and porn

Word!!!

Going through my slash fic folder for fics to rec at BBS, I came across some very nice PWPs. Maybe we should have a day/week where everyone gets to rec their favourite PWP/s, not necessarily for the BBS archives but to smooth those kerfuffle waves a bit?:-) Or a round of 'My Favourite Feel-Good Fic" (for stories like that S/X chocolate vignette, remember?).

Listmum, if you read this--what do you say?

LOL! I love you!!:-))

Yeah, I'm so stylish.;-) I want to have fun with guy/guy fics, and I want to share the fun, all that wonderful emotional, dark, angsty, funny, porny stuff you fabulous writers (have) come up with.

I do think, though, that maybe the moderator should be the one to suggest this on-list. If she thinks it's a good idea, that is.

Mmmmm, Sodomizer.....

Thank you for your familial felicitations; my family members would like me to, I'm certain, express their continued joy depression at being alive.
