Happy Birthday Edith!
It's been so long since any of you freaks had a birthday (except for germolene
, who have had BIRTHS and because I'm secretly a heteronormative romantic, I predict them to grow up and have lots of little LJ babies, dammit.
Thanks to everyone for last night, seriously. You guys lifted my spirits a lot, and I love you all. ♥
In celebration of the glow vindication brings me, I have linkspam.
I've been listening to my music with a fannish ear recently, and this is what's got me:Chad_Brock: Lightning Does The Work
is such a lovely country-ish Iroh song.Tina Arena
is more a Rabbithole song from perspective of poor dead Mel. >_>R.I.P.Alan Coren
I like to think he'd appreciate the fact he died age 69.davegodfrey has a much better discussion
in his journal than anything I'd have time to write about the London Review of Books' article: Why Pigs Don't Have Wings
. I fail a little bit as a science communicator in that I have difficulty that anyone can misunderstand
evolution so thoroughly. Meh.
And something I meant to linked to ages ago but couldn't find the words through the anger:
From February, all across the UK, people charged with petty crimes will be denied the right to talk to a lawyer
. Instead they will be put through to a privately-run 'legal advice line', which in London will be run by ex-cops.
Yep, even our legal rights have been sold off to the highest bidder.
