The Friday Five

1. If you were President of the United States, what would be your top 3 things that you would like to change?

Get ALL money out of politics. Get rid of the electoral college. Huge amount of assistance for health care, housing, and education. Make healthcare and education free altogether, if possible. A healthy and well-educated populace is the best defense against orange morons getting into office.

2. If you had to survive off of one specific type of food, what would it be and why?

Tacos. Real ones, not those 'flour tortilla filled with crap' ones. Real ones have grain, meat and/or beans, cheese, and vegetables: onions, lettuce, tomatoes.  Also, I freaking love tacos.

3. If your life were a play, what would it be (tragedy, comedy, drama, etc.)?

Comedy, definitely a comedy. A farce, actually.

5. What community is your favorite and why?

Torchwood of course. Because there is so much really great fan fiction out there, and because if you don't love Ianto madly, there is something seriously wrong with you.  Sherlock would come second, because there are some truly amazingly good writers in that fandom, but I am mad for Torchwood.

6. When did you realize you were finally an adult and how did it make you feel?

Don't think I've quite made it there yet, and at this age, don't think I'm ever going to. That is absolutely fine with me.

Still Here

Haven't posted anything here in forever.  Still here, though. Still reading all the lovely TW and occassional Sherlock fanfiction.  What a wonderful thing is fanfiction.  Not something I could do, but I so appreciate those who share theirs.

Does anyone else find it off-putting when someone puts 'don't like, don't read' at the beginning of their post?  For some reason it makes me just not want to read it even if I thought I would like it.  It just seems kind of rude, maybe?  Anyone?

A Little Rambling Thought

Just to show how much Torchwood has invaded my brain, here's a quote from  

 "The work of archivists might be among the most important least heralded anywhere. "

and first thing that popped into my head was 'Yes, Ianto is proof of that.'

A few years ago, there were bad, bad storms in Wales, and my first thought was that the weevils would be coming up out of the sewers.  Seriously, I need help, people.  

Edit:  look at all the icons that are now below my posts.  I don't think I like that.

Reading something, and just want to say how much I dislike overly cleaning-obsessed nagging anal Ianto. Ianto wants the team to not make messes because he has to clean them up. More work for Ianto, not Ianto obsessing about neatness. It makes Ianto sound like a rigid, nagging wife. That's not my Ianto. Just sayin'.

While I'm Waiting

for stuff to download, and isn't Firefox just fun lately? I am re-reading "Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodies, or, A Humourous Interlude Between Epics" by copperbadge, and there's this, which just made me laugh hysterically because I have been waiting for these things to download since just after The Flood, I think. You know, the big Biblical one. Anyway, this:

"Nobody wants to say what everyone's thinking: Atlantis just fell to a police constable, a secretary, and a metrosexual."

It was the 'metrosexual' that did me in.
