11:26 am - Come On Down and Claim Your Fabulous Prizes!
So remember when I promised limericks to people who donated to both me and Courtney? Time to make good on that deal:

For daynr:

There once was a woman named Ayn, see,
Who wasn't allowed to dress fancy,
Because showy apparel
On a lady so fair'll
Belie her disguise as Drew, Nancy.

For jenelope:

Her Internet name is jenelope.
She's got more suitors than Penelope.
But she needs no man
As long as she can
Watch TV. For this rhyme, she'll yell at me.

For foresthouse:

Let's talk of a girl named Delaney.
Whose interests are somewhat insane-y.
She's got pet chinchillas
Who aren't ghostface killas.
In conclusion, Kevin Kline.

There is another promise-y thing I made for myself, which was the Rob Thomas Honorary Recap, in honor of his whopping $250 donation. He didn't suggest an episode to do; rather, he told me to do one I liked. But I thought I'd also find out what you liked, since you'll be reading it. Here, have a poll!

Everyone else: my current total is $2,701! I'm so close to achieving my goal of $3,000. Please make it happen! Every little bit helps. And especially consider donating if you participated in yesterday's meme because, dude, I spent hours replying to you people! Don't you think people with AIDS should be compensated for my time?

Do you have a credit card? The site takes a credit card. If you don't have one and you can't use PayPal (which, seriously, is very easy and effective as long as you have a bank account), yes, you can send me a check. E-mail me and I'll give you my address.

BTW, I've decided that I like the Shiny Toy Gun's We Are Pilots. It also seems more your speed than much of the other stuff I listen too. Don't be shy about trying.

Oh, cool! I still haven't heard much more than "Le Disko." I have "Photograph," but I don't like it as much.

Hey, thanks! I understand tight budget. I just like seeing a whole lot of names on my list. It makes all this effort worthwhile. I feel supported.

Okay, I'm just promising to donate one more time. I've got till when? Like July? So, think of this as my pledge.

OH, son of a bitch. I was too lame to email you, and while I normally would have just called you Nick had my phone, cause his had died and he had to go to work and I'm a compulsive worrier. But, I will be calling you tonight. I would say that just to make it special I would call you when I was sober, but why ruin a tradition?

What the hell is a filk? LOL.

I'd like a BSG season finale recap, unless I had missed your previous recap post since I hadn't watched the episode yet.

A filk is a song parody.

And a BSG season finale recap it is! I'm glad I didn't take it off the DVR yet! Also, I've already seen it twice, so I'm well prepared to TWoP it out.

Um. My first choice would be for you to write a short story about TV fandom. That may be rather a larger undertaking than you had in mind, so if you say that's off-limits I'll think of something else. But I think the world is due for another of your stories.

I think it is too, but that is indeed a larger undertaking than I had in mind. Prod me when I get back into the groove, though.

Think of something else!

Groove? What groove? There's a short-story-writing groove? And you're out of it? Huh?

I'm gonna take the "post about anything" option, but "anything" is a big category. The biggest, one might say. Carrot sticks, tennis balls, galaxies, anything.

Books! You should write about a book. What thought-provoking book have you read in the past year, and what thoughts did it provoke?

(Better?)

Aha! There is a good one. I can write about books.

I haven't written a story since "Shopping," Dan.

Yeah, I know, but "Shopping" was brilliant, so it was worth a try (and a donation, though that's not why I donated) to get a followup out of you. :)

HEE. 'Tis a good limerick. My chinchillas approve.

Now I'm going to go participate in your meme because I am evil and don't want you to get anything done. Besides LJing, that is.
