lol!icon = affiliation (it's pretty!)

Not like there would be really a whole of surprise with who I'm voting for. I'm all set with my registration, and as of 5 minutes ago I know where I'm voting and what I need to bring the day of. Yay first time voting!

I believe this was already widely linked, but in case you haven't read this person's critique about Palin's "Joe Six Pack" commentary, it's worth looking at.

Note that I'm not going to apologize for my politics, but I am aware that there are people on my flist who are republican/mccain supporters. I would strongly recommend that we agree to disagree, and that you refrain from clicking on cuts/links that have potential to offend. =D

Anyways, I must say that the SNL skits of the debates gave me the hiccups. =( They're seriously dangerously hilarious. Tina Fey as Palin = more than epic. Legendary even. DARE I SAY, ARTIFACT.

My math professor has a video page now. If you want to learn calculus, start here. He is considering giving extra credit for people who go through all of them and rate his outfits. I would so totally do that. *eyes glaze over*

I've been reading this fic on FFN called "Shattered Illusions". I know, Pit of Voles, bite me. rrrawr While it may not be the best written or most canonically adherent, I really like this story as a what-if scenario. It's pre-OotP, and based on the idea that the Dursleys have abused Harry, and his uncle with Harry into the car gets into a major accident. There's depiction of the (muggle) hospital system for a couple chapters, and plenty of legal stuff too regarding the impending trial, custody, etc. What I like the most is how the author explores Harry's reactions to the abuse, and then learning how to cope with affection after being taken in by the Weasleys, be it parental, sibling, or romantic (with Ron). While her Harry might be a little bit 2-dimensional at times, I think that exploring those emotions is worthwhile.

I'm about half way done with my assignment for hp_yule_ball, and it's shaping up quite nicely (with some help from lizardspots ♥.

We can totally agree to disagree. Although that doesn't stop me from enjoying the SNL skits. (Oh, man, my brother used to be a bigger WoW nerd than the both of us COMBINED and he always gave me funny looks every time I tried to use the artifact line. *sulk*)

Your math professor, by the way, is pretty cute. And judging by those video titles, clever to boot. DT approves.

Lol icon, my raid leader was just explaining on Gluth about the importance of not pulling aggro.

Hey! So what episode of SNL is this (like, the date it aired)? I'd really like to find a DL, but I don't want to DL the wrong one. I'm getting so caught up in US politics, I'm in the process of DLing all of the debates AND I AM GOING TO BE IN THE STATES FOR THE ELECTION. If only I could vote, this affects THE WHOLE WORLD.

*is nervous excited* ♥
