Just Me

Pre-emptive Strike

I don't meme. We all know that. So this is certainly not a meme of any sort.

But, if anyone were to ask for six random facts about me, these should fit the bill:

1: I had my appendix out as a small child. I was chubby then, but grew up to really, really fat, so the scar has expanded to several times its original length.

2: I was diagnosed with diabetes about a year and a half ago. Not to worry, by eliminating sugar from my diet and taking a glucophage, my Blood Sugar is currently probably better than yours.

3: I paid nearly a hundred dollars on eBay for a "Mint In Box" Mattel "Hogsmead Hermione" doll, whose head and costume I have transplanted to a better-articulated (and slightly taller, so I had to use different trousers) doll body. Any "MIB" collectors reading this have just spat epithets about me but I don't care.

4: I do not -- ever -- sing Barry Manilo's "Mandy" to my dog, Mandy, but have been known to slighterly alter Looking Glass' only hit, and sing to her, "Mandy, you're a fine girl, what a good dog you can be..."

5: Although I'm a published writer, and have a vested interest in it, I think that "Intellectual Property" as we all know it is an obsolete concept, an outmoded model thet ceased to be workable when data was divorced from media. Some sort of new model will have to be developed to replace it, or creative art and invention will die on the vine as creators will be unable to afford to do it. But that can't happen until the corporations built on the dead concept stop humping its leg.

6: I've registered the name of a domain squatter as a domain name, and published an insulting page about him on it, just to piss him off.
Leviathan meets the Incredible Hulk

Bwahahahah! Pimpage!

So one of the genii on my flist, marginaliana, who I friended on the strength of a simulteneously hot, touching, and funny triofic named "Out Of His Own Hat" asked to be challenged with "five things" lists of potential drabbles, in multiple fandoms, including Harry Potter and Whose Line is it Anyway?

She liked one of my suggestions. So I commend to your attention:

"Five "World's Worst" Gags Mike McShane REALLY Wishes He Hadn't Done on Whose Line: Hogwarts"

Oh, Man, if you watch "Whose Line" these will make you wet yourself.
