It's been fun watching fandom_counts grow. It's a crazy little community, the Internet.

Remember that I'll be gone for five days starting tomorrow. I'm very excited about meeting maka2000 and miniglik and seeing duchessdogberry! And Melanie is driving three hours to see me. That's a BFF for you.

Darling, it's not exactly clear if 1 is VERY or BARELY oppressed.

Of course it is. "On a scale of 1 to 10" is understood. 10 is bigger than 1. 10 is the biggest. Who uses 1 unit of oppression to be BARELY oppressed?

Listen punk-a-licious, it's not explicit and you don't state a scale. You just ask ... requiring a lot of inferences. Just sayin' you could be more clear.

Never underestimate potential idiocy. Hello!

I used 1 unit to represent barely oppressed (because 10 is bigger -- so 10 means bigger oppression).

Yeah, I meant "VERY" in my comment. You did it right.

I do wonder how many people actually feel 10 much oppressed and how many are just joking.

I picked 7 because I like the number.

I do this to mess with your mind.

What do you mean you were expecting real answers?

The only one of those breakfast items that comes close to actually being pastry is the croissant. I did not vote on the ickier questions on your poll. I have my sensitivities -- three of them, you know who they are, so there's stuff about which I can't joke (not saying you can't -- just explaining why I didn't answer every question).

Have a good trip. You need to be online once in a while. What about my needs? Why can't you have your Chicago business trip and your Chicago friends in Boston?

I was going to add "Angel." But then I wouldn't see what I do know, which is Harry Potter in the lead.

I feel SO OPPRESSED that I can't discuss various incestuous rendezvous with little children.

Oh, and I feel oppressed that there is no "BITCH SLAP" button.

Bagels and the word faux for the win!

In conclusion, Kristen Bell is a child-molesting, kitten-eating, baby-kicking fuckslutwhore.

Have a safe and glorious trip! You'll be in Chicago proper, right? You should totally go visit the CSI exhibit so I can live vicariously through you. (Not that that's never happened before - heh.)

Maybe I'll go to the CSI exhibit. My brother got me a hat that says CSI on it. I could wear it and walk around and point out inaccuracies to people like I do in the regular science museums.

If you get the chance to pick your own restaurants while you're out here, I recommend the following:

Cajun - Heaven on Seven (have the gumbo if you go)
Sushi - Sushi Wabi
Upscale Italian - Vivere
Pure Kitsch (waiters are paid to be rude and dance on the counter) - Ed Debevics
Greek - there's an entire stretch of Halsted where you can't go wrong with anything

Oh, and it's hot as hell here right now.

Dude, thanks for the tip on the hot weather! I was all set to bring a big jacket. That would have not been fun.

I'll see if any of those places are around. Right now, I need a quick lunch before the meetings start!

I have no idea what happened, but I feel very oppressed.

I picked Jon Stewart because I wanted him when I was underage and croissants because I'm in Paris. Bonjour!

OMG why did I delete my "Team French Toast" icon?!

BTW I had the best french toast EVER the other day; it was stuffed with dark chocolate and had caramelized bananas and dulce de leche on the side. I want to marry that french toast.

Aaaaand now I've gotten myself distracted.

Anyway you have probably seen this already, because the day I know anything before you is the day Satan knits a scarf, but just in case: a preview of Neptune Noir.

Er, yeah, Alanna, I not only know about it, I helped edit it, and my name is in the Acknowledgements (along with others from MI.net) and I got a free copy.

Keep on knitting, Satan. Gimme some French toast.

What's grave_watchers exactly? I saw the VM carebear macro which was funny, but I don't get the purpose of the community. Looking at dead VM characters I guess?
