OMG Why am I awake so early? THIS IS ABSURD. It is like I told my body "wake up at a reasonable hour!" and then BAM, up at 8am. WHAT! 

Today is the FREMONT FAIR and SOLSTICE PARADE! I am psyched. It is especially great because I live SMACK DAB IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. The parade route is literally *on my block*, and my street is full of craft booths and stuff. So it's like, I can trudge around the fair and look at everything and if I need to pee or want to go home or whatever, I AM ALREADY THERE. It is the best.

Also the solstice parade is full of people who are naked and painted in interesting ways and riding bikes! And free art activities of silliness! and ART CARS all parked in a group together! And FUNNEL CAKE. Good times.


So in fannish news:

I've already voted for all the groups in summerpornathon's challenge #1. HERE IS HOW I DID IT:

-I started with Group C because I am contrary by nature but you can start wherever, and I just made a simple text document with numbers and group letters.

-After each and every fic I read, I left a brief summary or a reaction word next to its relevant number on the doc. If it was, to me, especially quality, I slapped a few stars in front of the number for easy identification. SOME EXAMPLES IN JUMBLED ORDER: 
#simple modAU A/M, cute
#lol no.
#gadzooks what this could have been hot but it so wasnt
#hot. beads. sub!arthur. "pet"
#niiice, objectification
#femslash strapon meh
#girl!merlin, kinda scatterbrained...
#woah surprise batman porn!
#purple prooooose

-Then after I'd read a group, I scanned for which ones I'd put stars next to. Generally this seemed to be about 6 fics per group, so then I decided on my criteria - I tended to er on the side of creativity in terms of the sex toys and also on ~mood~ more than anything else. And a lot of the time there would be pairs within my top crop that had similar themes/ideas, so I would pick the best one of those two and that help me cut down my choices really quickly. I only had to re-read three or so fics. I put the numbers of the top three fics from each group next to the letter above the numbers.

-And then to vote all I did was copypaste my header lines into a comment!

SO I WAS THINKING, since I have this text doc with all my notes and stars for each one, that after winners are announced for each challenge, I would post a personal top ten favorite fics of each challenge? That's kosher, right? I'd love to make that post *now*, but that's probably against the rules, right? Since it might sway votes or whatever? 

Would people be interested in that? 

OKAY! Time to go have lox on blueberry bagels (don't knock it) and before I know it it will be noon and time for the ~parade~ and hopefully today I can WRITE SOMETHING. Maybe I have to go *elsewhere*, maybe I need to go to a coffeeshop or something, although EVERYTHING in my WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD is going to be PACKED.

*furiously schemes to rearrange time and space such that Seattle is closer*

There was a parade on my street last weekend, but it was sadly lacking in bicycles and body paint - more agricultural equipment & fire engines, bored horses and wagon-loads of oppressed-looking children. :-(

*salutes* will do, boss.


last night I bought scallops which unfortunately I must eat. I mean, okay, it's not actually *unfortunate* but you're telling me I have a whole street of fair food less than a block away from my house and I have to *cook*? Bullllllshiiit.

(Then entice someone home with you to help eat the scallops... )

After results are posted, everyone usually congratulates the winners and then goes on to flail about their personal favorites. :D And then sometimes the people they are naming will deanon. Results posts are one of my favorite parts of pornathon.

Yes. Well of course I will be doing that TOO. But I was going to post in-depth thinky-thought sort of things on here on my LJ.

People probably don't want me mentally masturbating all up ins results posts, even if it IS about porn.

Ahaha, sorry. /o\ I'm sure SOME people would appreciate a delightful show like that, but yeah. Post links though! *is looking forward to it*
