Hey all. As I'm sure you've heard, there's been a magnitude 7 earthquake in Haiti and a lot of people are in desperate need of help. [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti is a fandom auction for the Haiti relief effort. People are offering fic, art, hand-knit items, beta services, tarot card readings, cookies, fanvids, graphics, and all kinds of other cool stuff. These are hard times for everybody, but if you have a little bit to spare please bid on something, or offer something up for auction or even just help spread the word.
There is also a list of charities up on [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti that you can simply donate to if you don't want to participate in the auction.
You can also text "HAITI" to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross. The charge will appear on your next phone bill.

  • There's live coverage of the court battle against Prop 8. Updates throughout the day as far as I understand. The court has adjourned for today. Stay tuned for tomorrow.

  • A lot of people have been trying to get me to read the webcomic No Rest for the Wicked for a while. I finally got around to it the other day. If you like fairy tales, or retelling fairy tales, or just messing with childhood stories until they are creepy and strange I think you'll enjoy it.

  • A few days ago I had a fight in my snow-filled driveway with [livejournal.com profile] sythia over who got to ride shotgun. After several minutes of shouting, at least two attempts to climb through the window, and being nearly crushed by my best friend flinging her weight against me, she won. Even though I had called shotgun. We spent the entire car ride arguing over who had rightful claim to the front seat. After a while, Liz, our poor suffering driver informed us that we deserve each other. Truer words have never been spoken.

  • I'm back in New York. Everything looks good. My new roommate seems quite nice. She's read the A Great and Terrible Beauty books by Libba Bray, which I thought was pretty cool.
