Also! I almost forgot, I have a new PO Box number because I was tired of getting yelled at every time I checked my post office box. So the 15151 number is now a thing of the past; my shiny new address is:

PO Box A3309
Chicago, IL 60690

ENJOY IT. I plan to!

CON.TXT, being held July 29-31, 2016 in Arlington, VA, is looking for vids! In past years the CON.TXT vid show has been slash-only, but this year we're open to all vids. The show theme for 2016 is fannish diversity and celebration. Sell us on your OTP, make us fall in love with your fandom, show us why your fave is the best, or give us a vid that takes an older beloved fandom and makes us all remember our love for it. Comedy and drama are both welcome!

We're accepting vids in three tracks: Premieres (vids that have never been screened at another con and have not yet appeared online), New (vids that have been released since last CON.TXT, 15 June 2014), and Favorites (vids that were released before 15 June 2014). The vid show will be assembled for flow, balance (of fandoms, pairings, musical artists, etcetera), and time. Priority will be given to premiering vids.

To give us time to curate and assemble the final show, the deadline for vid submissions/suggestions is June 11, 2016. All submissions for the New and Favorites tracks must be received by that date. If you're submitting a Premiere and you need more time to finish it, we still need your submission entered into the form by that date. Please upload a preliminary draft (so we can get a sense of the vid's subject, feel, music, etc.) and mark it [draft] in the title. We'll contact you for the final version, which must be received absolutely no later than July 1.

Vids can be submitted through our submission form. Even if you aren't submitting a vid of your own, we'd love it if you suggested some of your favorites, yours or others'.

If you have any questions, you can email the vid committee or ask here!

(Originally posted this to tumblr, then realised I should share it here too...)

I went running a little later than usual on Sunday, which means I caught the sunrise; sunrises are nice and all, but sunrise is way cooler reflected in the faces of the buildings on Michigan Avenue.

And then I punched a pigeon in the face. Possibly to death. I’m not feeling good about it.

I was on the return leg, near the CSO, and there was a homeless dude to my right and some pigeons to my left up ahead. I was just running along, mostly thinking unflattering thoughts about Coldplay and why they had to make Viva la Vida so very long, when I startled the pigeons and they took off.

And you know, sometimes when you startle a bird they fly straight towards you.

So I startled too and ducked right, but as I ducked right, my left foot came forward and both my hands came up to block. And because my left foot was forward, right arm was blocking, and my left arm was already raised, I just like….instinctively threw what I have to admit was a frankly amazing left hook.

I didn’t mean to. It just happened. It’s probably the most beautiful punch of my life (not difficult, I haven’t punched much) and I socked that pigeon right in its poor tiny face.

Feathers went everywhere (including up my nose, oh my god) and I stopped and did like a weird hop-turn thing to slow my momentum, and what I saw was just freaked out birds and a cloud of feathers and homeless dude losing his shit laughing.

And I didn’t know what to do, I don’t know what one does when you’ve just punched a bird probably to death. I couldn’t even see a body. Did I vaporize the bird?

So I looked at the settling feathers and I looked at the homeless dude, who started laughing all over again, and I turned around and legged it (Viva la Vida was still playing).

So IDK if I can trust any pace I set that morning, because man is inherently destructive and eternally at odds with nature.

But I did 1.93 in 26:37 for a pace of 13.47 which is slower than my average and likely does account for the bird punching.

I am almost definitely going to hell.

(Linking to athousanderrors' reblog of it because daynapapaya has autoplay music on their tumblr.)

She's dealing with mounting medical bills and trauma from the assault. She doesn't have a new fundraising site yet, but funds from her ongoing YouCaring fundraiser will reach her, as will income from the Starcat Books online etailer. She also has jewelry for sale on Etsy. (Obviously if you're shopping her etail or etsy there may be a delay in delivery.)

Every week, let's celebrate ourselves, to start the week right. Tell me what you're proud of. Tell me what you accomplished last week, something -- at least one thing -- that you can turn around and point at and say: I did this. Me. It was tough, but I did it, and I did it well, and I am proud of it, and it makes me feel good to see what I accomplished. Could be anything -- something you made, something you did, something you got through. Just take a minute and celebrate yourself. Either here, or in your journal, but somewhere.

(And if you feel uncomfortable doing this in public, I've set this entry to screen any anonymous comments, so if you want privacy, comment anonymously and I won't unscreen it. Also: yes, by all means, cheer each other on when you see something you want to give props to!)
