The White House responds to the petition to build a Death Star. Followed that link to this one of the President with a marshmallow canon.

Guatemala might actually happen. Which is scary and exciting and scary. Also, expensive.

And my Hobbit fic (now called The Lay of Dwalin the Dwarf in my head, because I am twelve) is up to thirteen chapters and has spawned ALL THE ANGST. I am deeply dissatisfied with it, but that's unsurprising. I can see why posting a chapter at a time is so addictive. You get all these awesome comments begging you to continue. And then I feel awful because it's going to take Bofur and Dwalin at least another fifteen chapters before they get together, and people seem to be more invested in them getting together than I am. ...I still can't believe I'm writing dwarf fic. *hides*

So I'm discovering how deeply awesome the A03 is, and also its flaws. Because while LJ/DW make for a crap fic archiving system, when I read an interesting fic -- especially one that really knows Middle Earth well -- I want to friend the writer and have long discussions with them about stuff, which LJ/DW are excellent for. A03, you can subscribe to the writer and get their fic, but that's it. It makes me kind of sad that we've lost that social connection.

Oh! And I have only one grad school application left to do. This is an excellent excellent thing.

...I need a Tolkien icon. Dammit. I used to have half a dozen on LJ.
