I figure I'll just leave these here while I'm waiting for my morning caffeine to kick in.

Our Congress is less popular than herpes - I remember thinking it was ludicrous that Arnold Schwarzenegger got to be the governor of California. Little did I know that a) I'd actually achieve nostalgia about this opinion today, and b) HOW MUCH I WOULD ADORE/DIE LAUGHING AT THIS GERRYMANDERING VIDEO. Making the most of your old movies, Mr. Schwarzenegger!

A COMPANION TRILOGY TO HDM?????? *flails* I am somewhat conflicted about this because I thought HDM ended exactly the way it needed to. On the other hand, I'm so there for stories about Dust, or more Lyra (or Will, but really, LYRA- even if it's Lyra at a distance).

... Um. I was considering getting my rant on re: Glee 2x09 (the only catch-up watching I have done this weekend, woe!), but I think that was sufficient irritation for today.

In happier/fannish news, [personal profile] such_heights has started an impromptu happy fanathon! Babble about whatever shiny things you like- thus far, there is Merlin (as in lots of Morgana/Gwen!), Narnia, and *cough* my rather slapdash Saving Face picspam. \o/!

ETA: OH AND. AO3: shiny! :D Somebody keep me off it until I manage to finish writing? *g*

01. a couple of posts i have seen on the election situation in Iran that you may find interesting:
- On Recent Events in Iran by [personal profile] yasaman, which includes a couple of non-US-media links and also some good thoughts on why US meddling would be a bad idea
- this post by [livejournal.com profile] one_hoopy_frood, which i've already seen reposted at least twice

02. as [livejournal.com profile] wanderlight knows, i am technically Not Allowed to be on LJ/DW right now because i am still not finished with today's [livejournal.com profile] springkink fic yet! however, my boss is on a college-visiting trip with his son this week and thus i am multitasking at work, trying to write moar without actually having source materials at hand (sort of a good thing because bringing manga to work would probably be a Terrible Idea, even in my lab, but at the same time i am severely lacking in canon details! D:). you are all hereby granted a Poky Stick if you see me floating around later tonight without having posted fic, okay?? i would really like to make my deadline this time.

03. GQMF meme via [personal profile] karanguni! comment so i have something to crack my shit up in my post-writing haze, okay bbs? &hearts

Oh, Texas. Sometimes I don't even know what to say about you. I am having some trouble with this link today, so here are the relevant pieces of information (the topic of discussion was voter identification legislation) in case it doesn't work for you guys.

"Rather than everyone here having to learn Chinese — I understand it’s a rather difficult language — do you think that it would behoove you and your citizens to adopt a name that we could deal with more readily here?"
-- Texas Representative Betty Brown (R), on Tuesday.

“Can’t you see that this is something that would make it a lot easier for you and the people who are poll workers if you could adopt a name just for identification purposes that’s easier for Americans to deal with?”
-- Brown, to Organization of Chinese Americans representative Ramey Ko.

Her spokesman said that Democrats “want this to just be about race.”

I've spent the last couple of days trying to decide if this is funnier or more insulting. Republican Party, when are you going to realize that minorities do, in fact, exist?

... Anyway! I'm tired of ending things on a depressing note, so have an old favorite of mine for Poetry Month:

as freedom is a breakfastfood, by e.e. cummings )
