  • I own three copies of Black House (So far. I'm not ruling out finding another one in a box somewhere). Two of these are hardcover.

  • Mary has invited me to go with her and Juliana to Calgary next year. I may have held my arm out for her to twist gently, before saying yes. Hopefully I can talk her into staying longer than her suggested five days. Because um. FIVE DAYS? Still, yay Calgary!

  • Song of the Day:
  • Tomorrow we go to Meadowbrook's annual Holiday Faire. I've missed the last couple of years, which is a shame since I do a whole bunch of my holiday shopping there. They have all sorts of professional vendors who rent tables and sell everything from silk dresses to handmade wooden toys to organic herbal bath products to hand-dyed wool for felting to one-of-a-kind glass ornaments--all sorts of unique stuff like that. Since my goal every season is to get non-generic gifts and get all my shopping done without once setting foot in a mall, it's the perfect place. And it supports an awesome school.

  • Have finished Torchwood (which is a very amazing show; you should watch it if you haven't yet), and have read some fic, with mixed reviews. Not all are bad--some are really very good, but I still haven't found a fandom with a more consistently talented bunch of writers than C6D. Having said that, the Torchwood bunch are pretty resourceful when it comes to AUs. My theory is that it's because for TW, AU is canon. Also and possibly unrelated, some of the stuff I've read about the behaviour of the more fringe-y part of the fandom makes me want to do this:

  • Blog of the Day: Stuff White People Like. I'm particularly partial to this one, this one and this one.

What do you think about the loss of our beloved characters?

I was spoiled completely for one of them. Not a happy camper at all. The other two I did NOT expect. But? I still think next season will be awesome.

Ianto's death left me devastated - Russell, what were you thinking? He was such a huge part of the show. Anyway, I can also see why it had to happen. Doesn't mean I like it and if I had to say anything the doctor would make it right:)

I never liked Owen much - no reason to kill him off, though:). Toshiko... Such a brave lady. I miss them all.

I love Toshiko. And Ianto. Owen, mneh. And I have this giant love for Gwen. Why do so many people not like her?

I always liked her. Maybe they over-did the whole Jack/Gwen thing:)

I like the Jack/Gwen thing. Because it's definitely there, but neither one of them would dare go anywhere near it. As of now, anyway.

Btw please feel free to point me towards some good TW fic. They are hard to come by unfortunately.
