Dear Visitors,

I posted here from 2006 to June 2009. I've relocated to DreamWidth, where I post as merrily.

My pre-May 2009 entries have been imported to my Dreamwidth account and purged from LJ. In order to keep broken links to a minimum, fic posts are still up, with headers and links to the Dreamwidth-hosted stories.

I'm keeping this account open in order to keep up with my non-DW friends, but will no longer (as of December 2011) be posting here.

The content of my Sunday rec posts is aggregated from my Pinboard account. If you've also got a Pinboard account, you can add me to your network and skip the Sunday rec posts. (ETA: Sunday rec posts are now extremely infrequent. But I have great plans for 2012!)

If you're looking for work by me, it's tagged here.

If you're interested in moving to Dreamwidth too, I've got a couple of invites, and you are welcome to one. ETA: Also, from now until the end of 2011, you don't need an invite to start an account.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rachel

(This is a rare crossposting, because I don't want anyone to be left out.)

1. There's a website called GoFoBo that gives away passes to advance screenings of movies. They organize both private screenings (where you need a code to get a pass) and open screenings.

Right now they're advertising a private screening in Toronto of the new Tom Hardy/Chris Pine movie/Reese Witherspoon movie, This Means War, on January 26.

Why am I taunting you with this information? Because my experience is that private screenings turn into open screenings a day before the movie.

TL;DR - Go sign up on GoFoBo (it's free) and check on the 24th and 25th to see if tickets become available for the 26th. We shall all enjoy Tom Hardy's perfectly shaped head! and Chris Pine's perfectly shaped ass.

2. (More of a Fannish Canada announcement) Cineplex Canada is holding another round of the Great Digital Film Fest, where movie tickets are only six bucks (or less, if you buy multiples). It's running Feb 3 to 9 across Canada, and here is the schedule. It was basically built for fandom. They're even showing Serenity!

In a move that will, I expect, surprise no one, I'm going to stop cross-posting here. The journal's staying up so I can keep up with the flist, but otherwise, consider this the closing sign on the shop window.

You can reach me over at Dreamwidth. Account creation at Dreamwidth is free and doesn't require an invite from now until the end of the year. (If you're reading this after Jan 1, and you do want an invite code, I have loads.)

XO,
M

Look at this incredible 11 year old eating up the dance floor. Just look at her.

There's been a death in my family, and I keep trying and failing to write a post about it, even though I have been answering the phone and the front door every five minutes, and thus talking about it all day.

In lieu of that post, this one: please to be sending comfort fic. HP, Inception, SGA, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Suits and Trek would all be appreciated.

If there's a piece of original fiction being posted online that I've not yet discovered that you would consider in this category, that would be good too. (I accept that there's only one [profile] freece, though, and that she writes slow.)

Lolanimals and general items of hilarity also welcomed.

Holy shit, the OTW.

I keep trying to write something more cohesive, but mostly it comes down to "Holy shit, the OTW!"

I've been reading New York Magazine's cover story on Ms [here], and it strikes me that there are a lot of parallels.

I hope we get through this and have forty productive years, is what I'm saying.

Thanks to everyone who advised me on desirable iPhone specs! Am now the happy owner of a 16GB iPhone 4 (and it was free!).
