HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] coiledsoul & [livejournal.com profile] sherriaisling!

I have LJ userpics I haven't used. Huh. /random

Okay, less bang-specific rambling than recently posted. Reading up on the 1940s has made me incredibly grateful for modern advances, and also reassured me that if it's useful yet disgusting, the Egyptians did it first.

I have read Sleeping Beauty porn and it makes me want to write my own. (facepalm) It was really bad porn too. Aching manhood and internal "shield" hymen bad. So bad that it even managed to butcher some of the most famous lines of the movie. This makes me want to do it right. I'm a bad, bad person. And I was just given the DVD for my birthday, so I could even watch it without risking my ancient VHS tape.

Cheese & crackers = nom.

I seem to have been adopted. o_O We've had two dogs wandering around our property for more than a week now. They have collars, but no tags, and we can't find any trace of their owners. There's not a no-kill shelter anywhere even remotely close, and they seem content enough to hang around on our porch. One's a big black rotty-mix, and the other is a brindle pit. They're both really sweet, but the black one is going to need some work on the inter-pack dynamics, because he gets psuhy and agressive with the other animals. (My horse has tried to kick him several times and he hasn't learned yet.) We're trying to find their owner, but if no one shows up, I guess that's it. I'd love to keep the brindle, because he's a cuddly little doll and I miss having big puppies, but the black one is going to be A Problem.

So... Yeah. Been adopted. We'll see how this works out.

In bang-specific notes, I've touch 16k and Stevie has yet to even get out of her dirty, stolen Evil Nazi Ducky scrubs and meet a Significant Plot Point. Actually, it's only just about two days since she was hacked out of an ice cube. She still has soul-searching to do! People to talk to! Teeth to brush! Incredibly slimy CEOs (Tony) to threaten! I think I've under-estimated a word count somewhere. D:

At least I've got the break-down under control?

Also, can I get someone from the other side of the Atlantic to take back their spelling? Today I've misspelled not only donut, but also theater and favorite. I'M CONFUSED NOW.

Sleeping Beauty...have you read Beauty, by Robin McKinley? It's one of her earliest novels, and it's a really fascinating retelling of the traditional story from a more modern point of view. For 1978 it was pretty darn radical, in part because she's clearly trying to moderate the crazier elements of Angela Carter's essentialist fairytales, but now it's very conservative; she tried again in 2000 with Spindle's End, which is a more sophisticated book but it just didn't, I don't know, grab me like earlier McKinley books did.

No porn in either of those books, but it's Sleeping Beauty redone in some really thoughtful ways, and if you haven't read them, you should--I think they'd be very much to your taste!

And oh noes, is Tony really going to be slimey, or does Stevie just think so on first glance? Please tell me moar!

I wholeheartedly second the reading of McKinley's version.

♥ Book recs, huzzah! Because I need more books in my "to read" pile! (This is not sarcasm; I do need books in my too-read pile. There can never be enough books.) And I love re-envisioned fairy tales, so this is shiny! Okay, so I love the newer versions because the older versions frequently made me cry/ill/panic. Still counts.

It's only at first glance. She thought he was an Evil Nazi Lap Dog when they first met, so that colored things. And on top of that, she's a six-foot, blonde, extremely well-built woman who at the time of their first meeting was very helpless and delicate. (She acted like she was delicate and helpless, anyway.) So Tony was-- erm, well, Tony was the way Tony is with pretty women: a little handsy, with petting and rubbing circles on her back. Stevie was Not Amused.

They were false "U"s! Completely useless. It was for their own good that we gave them the chop-chop!

Well, we did start out as extreme religious conservatives. We US-ians don't have truck with that sort of thing. (Except in California and Massachusetts, but everyone knows those aren't really states. Maybe Hawaii too; I hear that one's under review.)
