Thank goodness for LJ drafts and the autosaving function. I typed up this long rant (under the cut), that boils down to "No one I know in London wants to discuss issues relevant in the world today, and instead want to watch 'Reality TV.' Not that I'm poopooing RTV, I just think people should have a better grasp on what's going on in the world around them. Then my computer got a virus, and it's eliminated my ability to run a virus scan, system restore, or any malware programs. Any suggestions?

On another note, three things.

1) It's snowing. Admittedly, it's mostly rain at the moment, but an hour ago there were large, white flakes. I'm 100% done with this whole snow thing. Just so you know.

2) Pet peeve of mine, when people aren't consistant in their use of verb tenses. I think one of the first things an author should consider before words hit paper/screen, should be to decide whether they want to write it in past or present tense. THEN STICK WITH IT.

3) As part of my whole "I JUST HIT THE RESET BUTTON" thing, I'm trying to decide if I want to enter the dating world again. More specifically, I'm trying to decide if I want to ask a guy that I met last weekend out for dinner. He's fun, seems to have a good sense of humor (i.e. can laugh at himself), in is in the same position in life as I am. (Context: the last guy I dated had very little drive or direction in his life while I was ready for "bigger and better things." The guy before that had never gone to college/univeristy, had declared bankrupcy in the past, and had a five year old son. He didn't really understand why I wanted to stay in and study, and I couldn't handle kids at the time).

I've just never asked a guy out before. I'm always the askee.

Any advice for asking a guy out, or encouraging him to ask me out?

Onto yesterday's random rant. )

So, I want to write the Torchwood fic where Ianto doesn't tell Rhiannon that he's not gay, he just likes Jack. Honestly, this is my least favourite trope in fandom, and I think Torchwood is especially guilty of it. It displays this awesome homosexual couple thing, then ruins it all by having it between an omnisexual immortal and a dude who's only interested in said immortal.

Seriously.

There is such a thing as being bisexual. It's even possible to be bisexual while still prefering one gender to another.

I just had caffeine by accident so I'm going to be up all night. It's possible there will be more posts.

But seriously, I kind of want to write that fic. Fuck my brain.

Tomorrow night I'm leaving to go to the airport to fly down to Orlando for my half marathon for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. If you want to sponsor me, you can go to my Team In Training page. Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far. It's for a great cause.

So when I'm stressed and angsty I end up on my soap box with rants that probably aren't that important. I figure this time I'll share briefly what I'm stressed and angsting about, and then the mini rant for today.

Things that are making me angst right now: )

Mini rant that may contain controversial opinions about fandom warnings )

I feel a little better getting it all off my chest.
