Random stuff, TV stuff, a VERY IMPORTANT POLL OF FANNISHNESS AND TACOS OMG

I took my daughter, her BFF, and the BFFs mom (a friend of mine, thankfully!) shopping at some hip resale shops in Dallas (Dolly Python - I love that place) and if the lighting had been better for photography, I would have flooded your flists with images of amazing cut away coats and jodhpurs from 1890, and some really spectacular Mexican dresses from the 40s.

I did laugh at my daughter and her friend's enthusiasm over Roper boots with a kiltie. (Anyone? Bueller?) That was what the Goat Ropers in high school went bananas for (those and some Rocky Mountain jeans for that heart-shaped ass look). And let's get real here: goat ropers are so much more down to earth than barrel-racers, amirite?

*crickets* Any way... Take the kiltie off and they look like a more pointy-toed Doc Marten. And they're outstanding footwear. Still, I snerked.

I started watching White Collar the other night. I've had a tiny crush on Matt Bomer since he was the "villain" of Chuck's pilot episode, loved him after he was on Glee, and now that I'm watching him smirk and be the Most Charming Man On Planet Earth on this show, I would like to be baptised in the religion of Bomer. It's unreal how he manages to look like perfection and not be from another galaxy. HOW DO YOU HANDSOME. It's also a fun show. I don't feel fannish, but it's something I've been looking forward to watching at night when everyone's settled down.

NOW PLEASE TAKE MY POLL TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND HUMANS AND THEIR BEHAVIOR and there are questions about tacos.

some other way I will explain in comments.

62(40.5%)

True or False: WiP stands for "Work in Progress." That means the product is NOT COMPLETE. The words The End haven't been reached in the author's world for this story.

True
108(100.0%)
False
0(0.0%)

With regard to a FINISHED story, I feel:

that the whole thing should be posted at one time, regardless of length. Just give me the whole thing, already.
20(10.4%)
that posting a chapter a day is fine. I like to be able to absorb that much (and not lose my day in the process of devouring a story.)
18(9.4%)
that posting a chapter a day is...okay. I wouldn't mind reading more if it was available, but I'm not going to get bowed up and rowdy about it.
48(25.0%)
that it's not up to me to determine how things should be posted.
72(37.5%)

27(13.5%)
IN MY FACE HOLE.
60(30.0%)

5(2.5%)
at least they didn't say TAY-co, because I'd have to never speak to them again.

I really need a taco icon. (I had fantastic tacos yesterday for lunch, can you tell?)

Oh! Two last things, if you need reading material. 1. Teen Wolf is now at HDJM, and trust me when I say that you will love Liz's recaps, regardless of being in the fandom. 2. I wrote a short ficlet and posted it on Sunday, Klaine Fluff: "I Will Always Feel The Same.". :)
