holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (leverage_geekinherit)
I'm currently eating yogurt and watching Burn Notice and about to catch up on lj, I swear, but first I have to write out my adventures at Con-Con, the Leverage Convention in Portland this weekend.

A very short time ago, [livejournal.com profile] annerbhp approached me with a wonderful, unique proposition: two days, one night in beautiful downtown Portland with a few other fans and like, the ENTIRE cast and crew of Leverage. I mean, how can you say no to something like that?

The basics )

I have some tweets from the con. I'm going to put them here in a cut, too:

Tweets from Con-Con )

That's really about it! Fun times, good food, close encounters of the celebrity kind... what could be better? *grins*

I started a multi-fandom grab bag post on my livejournal. Come and play!

holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (abstinence doesn't work)
Seeing as I'm sick, and was whining about it to [livejournal.com profile] annerbhp, she told me that I should milk it for all its worth. Her idea was that I ask for "picspams and comment fic to entertain [me]," which I think is fairly fabulous.

So that's your assignment. Write ficlets about how awesome the team is, or how Teal'c pwns everyone during the zombie sheep epidemic of 2004, or how Sam and Thor finally got their groove on. Or anything else that hits you like the swine flu on a Saturday night. (Stargate, in other words, is NOT the only fandom in the universe, and I'll happily take zombie-sheep-swine-flu stories from any fandom you love.)

Or post pictures of the hawt. Any hawt: boy, girl, machine, tissue boxes, or furniture/home deco porn.

If you would, please use the subject line to describe your fandom (if any), the pairing (if any), and the rating. Let's keep pictures PG-13 or below, please. All ratings of fiction allowed, as long as you warn appropriately.

Too long to fit into a comment at the [livejournal.com profile] carnivalofsquee gleeathon, so I'm posting it here.

From the prompt "The fine art of space ship theft," which was pointed out to me by [livejournal.com profile] beanpot.

Vala loved working with professionals )

Today's XKCD is a brilliant commentary on modern literature. :-) I've actually wondered about *both* these things before, although I generally think the movie is awesome. It just goes to show you how we give male characters a pass on certain behaviors and condemn women for perfectly logical decisions.

Leverage in my town OMG! I sense stalking welcoming favored entertainers to Oregon in my future.

Yesterday I read a comment on a fat accemptance blog post about "feeling beautiful" that struck a chord with me. The comment said something along the lines of not being beautiful, and being okay with that. The thing is--I'm *not* pretty. I think I'm okay-looking, but as far as our society goes, I'm just...not beautiful. Sometimes I feel pretty, or sexy, or confident, or like I could climb a mountain, and sometimes people comment on how awesome I look, which is nice, but it doesn't mean I'm the kind of beautiful people mean when they say Person X is beautiful. *shrugs*

This isn't a pity post, so please don't comment on my physical appearance. *g* Anyway, the point of that is to link this article from one of my favorite blogs (Dress a Day, despite the fact I don't wear dresses that often): You Don't Have to be Pretty. Which is pretty much my opinion on the matter.

Finally, here's some good information for my readers to know:
