Timesuck for a Holiday  
The good news is I actually got a bit of writing done today. The bad news is I got it done because the surgeon was almost two hours behind schedule while waiting for my mom's eye surgery. So I've spent most of the day in a waiting room. (everything went ok, I just don't deal well with forced confinement and boredom. one of the many reasons I have zero desire to go to jail.)

So anyway, I need to type that in tomorrow. I would've done it tonight, except I got trapped on YouTube wandering through clips of Chinese wuxia films. I was looking for more clips to maybe vid my chaos_thon entry -- except of course, it's not as if any of my characters are dressed in old-fashioned costume. Or use swords. Ever. (Or, I know, maybe I could do a past-life storyline?... "This has all happened before"...)

Speaking of YouTube, while looking up 80's videos to show Kidlet, he's fallen in love with THIS FANVID . I am certainly no expert on vids, but this one is horrendously, hilariously bad -- taking the cartoon Happy Tree Friends, which I didn't even know existed until I saw this, but is apparently a South Park-like 'net sensation, and setting it to Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel. And of course, because it's the worst fanvid in the history of ever, I've had to watch it about seven times already...

Oh, Happy Tree Friends. Siiigh. I never got round to uploading my Valentine's Day icon, but it's ripped off their art. I think they're more like a Quentin Tarantino animated cartoon. South Park was never that violent, except when it came to Kenny.

*watches the vid* It's actually scary, how they managed to not show everyone getting maimed and killed.

I was kind of wondering once I'd read a bit about the show whether I'm supposed to be getting some sort of irony out of the vid, like maybe they used every single bouncy/nice/sweetish clip they could find to totally misrepresent the show deliberately But it's hard to tell.

Your first paragraph .... just totally made me giggle. Especially cause your mom is okay, but really ... there are MANY reasons to not go to jail. ;-) I'm glad you got some writing done.

well, yes, many reasons: the big one being JAIL SUCKS. :)
