This journal is now friends only. I will be going through and changing gift fics to public over the next several weeks. If there is a fic you would like to read that is currently locked, let me know and I will fix it so it's readable somewhere.

Okay, I'm not even sure if anybody on here every goes on Pottermore, but I do occasionally dabble over there (more now than during classes, obviously). My account has done some weird stuff in the last week. The moments strip at the bottom has disappeared from the main page, but if I click where it's supposed to be, there are links there to the different chapters... but they're in French, and the back and forward arrows don't work, and there are two menu strips (again, both in French). I tried going to the help page, but nothing covered the topic. Hence, I decided to do the equivalent of unplugging and plugging back in and logged out. It will not let me log back in, saying I have the wrong password. Okay, that's plausible, so I did the "I forgot my password" thing asking for it to be emailed to me. Three times. No email. Not in the spam filter.

Also, though this could be nothing at all, when I have to do the check that I'm not a robot by typing in from a picture, it says to "type the two words." There are no words. There aren't even two pictures. There's just one picture of a number. I even tried refresh and help on those. When I typed the number, it seemed to accept it, though, although if it didn't, maybe that explains why I'm not getting the emails (Java script is enabled... at least I think it is).

Anybody else having something similar happening, or does Pottermore think I'm a French Death Eater spy or something?

A happy Independence Day to everyone in/from the grand old U.S. of A!

I just had homemade strawberry shortcake (low fat Bisquik and no fat Cool Whip, but the strawberries were real!). Here's hoping nobody blows anything up with fireworks tonight.

I'd say "beep Buffy" but no one has a beeper anymore and that's the wrong fandom. This took me forever, and I'm sorry about that, but here it is.

It's Hermione's birthday.Collapse )

I showed up all ready to facilitate the discussion of today's book, Sylvia Plath's "The Bell Jar."

Unfortunately, there had been a miscommunication. The library thought today's book was supposed to be "Cry, the Beloved Country." We're actually scheduled to read that one in November. Consequently, they took down all of my "incorrect" posters listing "The Bell Jar" as this month's book and put up new ones with the books through October (the other books listed for the rest of the months are in fact correct). They also told anyone who called and asked that this month's book was Paton'.

There's a little problem with that. I've never read "Cry, the Beloved Country." Consequently, I had to figure out how to do this on the fly. Only three people actually showed up, though, so we basically did a current events/historical treatment of mental illness (one was a nurse)/women pulled in different directions by society situation while we ate smores bars that were still warm. It was a nice, intelligent discussion, at any rate, and as the director and half the librarians have been replaced since our last meeting, I'll chalk this up to chaos of a new regime. Oy.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, grandmothers, step-mothers, foster mothers, aunts, fathers who act like mothers, and other people out there.

Yeah, so that happened today. Nobody's hurt and it didn't hit the house, but yeesh, what a mess, and it took out a perfectly good tree on the way down. :(
