Anyone on Tumblr?

Hello, fellow LJ-ers. I succumbed to Tumblr recently and am semi-active there. You can find me there at onlymorelove.tumblr.com. I've made and posted some vids and graphics there. It's not as discussion-friendly as LJ, but in some ways it suits my laziness. Are you there? Leave your name here, and I'll follow you.

Help!

Does anyone remember the old Life Alert commercial?  "Help! I've fallen, and I can't get up!"

In that vein, I feel like saying, "Help! I've fallen (into fanfic,) and I can't get up!"

I keep trying to read books, but I keep getting sucked into reading fic instead. This is not helping me put a dent in my Goodreads 52-books-in-a-year reading challenge. *gives up*

Random post is random.

Buffy rewatch

I've started rewatching Buffy, and man, I want to reach into the TV screen and throttle Cordelia. At least in the beginning, she was so relentlessly nasty and shallow -- to Jesse, to Willow, and to anyone she felt was beneath her socially. She insulted Wilow's clothes, saying something about her having discovered the softer side of Sears, and I gritted my teeth. The saddest part is that while Cordelia's just a TV show character, there are, in fact real people who behave as thoughtlessly and meanly as she does. *sigh* It's almost too bad Jesse or Luke didn't bite her. *g*

Wednesday Smiles

Forgive me, but we're on vacation, and I'm posting from the LJ app and can't figure out how to easily pull my usual smiles text from an old post. So, minimal explanation: If anything's made you smile lately, please post a comment listing as many of those things as you like. Be well, friends.
