Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate!
ANGEL: What are you people playing at?
GUNN: We're not playing.
ANGEL: You're gonna get yourselves killed.
GUNN: We gonna get you killed first!
CHAIN: Let's dust him.
(Angel lets Alonna go, but she triggers one of the booby traps. Angel stops an arrow heading straight for her with his hand; it sticks halfway through.)
ANGEL: Ow. You know, for some reason I'm getting the impression you don't like me too much! Maybe I'm just over-reacting.

Struck with the sudden desire to watch DS9 (especially since I lost my access to regular episodes around the time the dominion arc started getting good so I've never seen the end)

But it's a case of too many episodes too little time. Anyone able to recommend a good episode watching guide?

I tried googling but there are a lot of lists and I can't tell which are any good! Suspect someone here knows my pain :3

people dont get fired up by ideas unless its some really stupid idea of freedom. or the concept of white america. otherwise they seem to think that something has to happen to someone close to protag in order for people to get fired up. its the most ridiculous fucking thing.

enya is back.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a semi-abstract piece, in that it's about Clarke, but focuses on different parts of her. You don't see her face, but the artist has included her hands, her lower body in profile with a weapon, the back of her head approaching a door that she can't walk back out of. It's looking at the internal consequences of her actions with hard lines and spare colors that I think works pretty well.

... that was definitely a nonsensical Western about dinosaurs, with a lovingly rendered backdrop of thoroughly referenced completely incorrect geology

I object strenuously to the fact that it made me cry that much in spite of the baffling artistic licence taken with evolution and wish to lodge a complaint

Nipples don't exist! But that's okay because the C4 photosynthetic pathway does, paving the way for remarkably resilient leaf loincloths

This concludes your complementary review of The Good Dinosaur, now showing in cinemas near you!

The Kittens Game by bloodrizer is amazing. It is quite addictive. You are a kitten in a field of catnip. You can gather catnip. When you have enough catnip, you can plant it in a field and grow more. Then you can make wood, and build huts, and it grows into this great resource-mining game. It's very well balanced, with lots of interesting quirks. I was delighted when I first tamed a unicorn. Now I have collected unicorn tears, reset the game and collected my karma, my kitties have drilled oil wells and built amphitheatres and trade with the zebras and sharks on a regular basis. I discovered it from comments in [personal profile] yvi's post about constructive games a while back.

Is anyone else playing?

I hope everybody celebrating had a lovely Thanksgiving and that those of you who weren't had a happy Thursday.

My holiday in random bullet points:

= My sister's dog, Nala, wearing the cone of shame (to keep her from licking at an injury). With the cone on, she had a really hard time negotiating all the extra legs and chairs around for the holiday, and got herself trapped underneath the dining room table a few times.

= My sister made the pumpkin and apple pies by herself this year (pics. This is a big deal not just because they turned out great and thus rescued us from the possibility of a pieless Thanksgiving, but also because she doesn't enjoy cooking (my brother-in-law does all that) but she was determined and everything turned out well.

= Pie for breakfast! And bacon!

= the entire family being mesmerized by the last five miles of Railroad Alaska: Real Time Train Ride on Destination America. We just wanted to know what was going to happen when the train reached Healy! (Nothing, as it turns out.) There was a lot of hilarious Night Vale type speculation over what was really happening, but we did indeed stop watching football for a half an hour or so to watch a train traveling at about 12 mph through a snowy landscape. I can see how that would be soothing when you have insomnia.

= the hilarious M. family singalong to "Karma Chameleon."

= my nephew mentioned that he's been told he resembles Mats Zuccarello (mostly because of his long hair and scraggly beard) but then getting annoyed when I mentioned that Zuccarello looks like a hobbit.

= that same nephew being ready to throw down in defense of the Star Wars prequel trilogy and also aggressively stanning for (light-side) Anakin Skywalker.

= also, some SRS BZNS conversation about sorting superheroes into Hogwarts houses with my niece and sister over White Russians.

= my sister seeing these adorable Cap and Spidey ornaments and knowing that they were destined to be mine. As you can see, I come by my nerdiness honestly. We are a very nerdy family.

= I tried and failed to keep up on tumblr (it's terrible on the iPad and iPhone, with or without the app), but I did see this article, thanks to [tumblr.com profile] angelgazing: Super: The Gayest 'Stucky' Moments in the 'Captain America: Civil War' Trailer, which includes this paragraph:
Yet if Bucky Barnes were a woman, this would be a love story, played out with all the same narrative beats. If Peggy were the brainwashed assassin kept frozen through the decades, this movie would definitely end in a kiss. Everything about the love, pain, and intimacy of the Steve/Bucky relationship on the big screen is typical of a romance, and that’s something fans are right to respond to — something the filmmakers may even be playing into, though surely not with any formal sign-off from Disney.
For reals though.

So that was a good day. I'm home now and watching the Rangers and planning to enjoy the long weekend.

\o\ I finished an original short story! /o/

Ok, it's 7500 words, which is half again as long as it was supposed to be, and it needs a ton of revision before I can even think about a beta-reader, but still! VICTORY!

That means I get to go to ChessieCon this weekend, too. Sometimes self-bribery works.

(Hopefully the other near-finished one will get done, and then in December I take a month for Yuletide, and I can worry about revisions in January...)

Also dinner yesterday was quite pleasant, and we discussed the fact that my cousin's mom really wants her to read Anne of Green Gables, but my cousin will only read books with dragons in them, so therefore someone needs to write a version of Anne of Green Gables were Anne is actually a dragon. (This seems entirely workable, given what I remember of Anne of Green Gables. And it's public domain...)
