Whatcha doon? *chinfists*

I am avoiding rewriting an opening scene because it's a lot of work and I'm very lazy today. SO! I wanted to point out some fun things and jabber at you, because you know you're watching the clock until you can celebrate in style (be that gaming, sleeping, eating, whatevs, I'm not going to judge you.)

HEY SEGUE WHAT: I've made some tweaks at Hey, Don't Judge Me, namely the front page. That unwieldy box that listed everything we had is gone, and in its place is an easy to use drop down box with everything sorted alphabetically. I'm still working on an option that will fine tune that even more (say, you click True Blood or Game of Thrones and you get a list of seasons to choose from, instead of the chronological order in reverse, as it is now. It's easier said than done, boo.)

Also, where are my Dr. Who fans? We're going to start a summer re-watch next week beginning with the Ninth Doctor, as written by the hilarious (and up until now, only writing by a pen name) entrenous88 (pen name: Janey Ford. We celebrate people who come out! :D) and she has a post with her schedule, etc. She's funny, bright, a fan of things British, smart, and if you're a fan of Who, you'll have a great time catching up with her.

I changed our layout slightly to keep the clutter down (don't you love a non-busy web page? I do.) and added what our mission statement and our #1 rule: "don't be a jerk" right here. YAY. I monitor each comment that comes through (we're still small enough that I can do that) so please know that if you want to have a discussion, chat to someone in comments, feel safe to do so. YAY HAPPY INTERACTION. :D

Oh, and the cake I mentioned yesterday? Holy Mary, mother of Barb, it is so freaking good. I'll share the recipe soon, promise, and this is my new "fabulous" cake to pull out. (I do make a mean Italian Cream - 6 layers, yo.) I need lunch and I want something bad for me involving salty, salty fries. *checks calendar* ...great.

Last night I was at the Oak Cliff Film Festival hanging with some very cool people talking film and media and I am so impressed with my friends and what they've managed to pull off. It's no small feat hosting an event like this, and just what they've done to the historic theater is amazing. If you're in DFW, do yourself a favor and check out some of the films (just the venues are cool, honestly.) I talked with one of the directors of Eurocrime! and he's adorable, and just a nice guy. The film is getting a LOT of buzz, too.

I'm going ice skating later today because....wait for it....it's what my husband wants to do for his birthday with the family. Well, okay then.

Friday afternoon at the Law School in summer. No classes. No faculty. No students.

Sigh.

WRITE THE DAMN SCENE. *cough* Or the next one!

Also, did you take down your BoM stuff on HDJM? Or am I sick/blind?

OH, BOO!! Thanks for picking up on that (I had to go in and hand code each show, blah blah to fit into that box, so I clearly missed one. THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS I LOVE YOU.)

Like the new look of the site. Yay! But one suggestion -- can you change "Just Desserts" to "Top Chef: Just Desserts"? Pretty please. :)

Also, if I lived in Texas, I'd probably be interested in a day at an ice rink too.

Ha, I was reading through your mission statement and thinking BUT WHAT ABOUT SPARKLEDAMMERUNG THAT IS NOT OKAY. And then you get to it at the end, so it's all good.

Ice skating! Your mister is fun. Also it's hot and muggy and an ice rink sounds fantastic right about now.

With the mister's 6 AM Saturday start time, my weekend just means I get my walk out of the way before 8! Yay?

Huh, I was just thinking about this the other day YOU CREEPY PSYCHIC. I was thinking about having the old CURRENT and RETIRED (was it retired? hiatus? something) side menu headers as top level ones instead, next to the ABOUT US and ADVERTS and whatnot. But I think the dropdown one looks tidier!

Ah, writing avoidance! When that happens, I become a champion of stupid computer games.

Wheee, I'm so excited for this Doctor Who recapping! *\o/*

That cake sounds absolutely amazing -- I'll totally be on the look out for the recipe.

The film festival sounds fantastic, as does the ice skating (because 90 degree weather, totally the right time for getting your chill on at the indoor rink and drinking that weird powdery hot chocolate they make there). Hope you had fun showing off your lutzes!

OMG! OMG! OMG! Dr. Who recaps? On my fave site? I'm dreaming!! Well, with less than 6 hours of sleep in the last 48 hours, I think I'm entering the hallucination stage of sleep deprivation. I don't care: BEST. HALLUCINATION. EVAH. EVAH!!!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
