1. The "kitty porn" on FB has gotten out of hand. I want a kitty. I can't have a kitty. No time or knowledge or patience to take care of kitty. This has got to stop. FB seems to be either "kitty porn" or ...Doofus/aka the 45th or You Know Who.

Also a lot on 13 Reasons Why -- which I have decided should be boycotted. Or watched with extreme caution. I feel for parents now days...our media is scary.

2. Too many tv shows...so suggestions?

And how do you do polls on DW?

Here's the television shows I want to know if it is worth trying or continuing with:

* The Class (co-worker keeps bringing it up, but he says it is very gory and scary...hmmm. Also been canceled, so hmmm. And I missed the first two episodes...so there's that.)

* Wynnona Earp (Netflix)

* The Son (have three episodes saved -- haven't watched yet, should I bother with it?)

* Shadowhunters?

* Big Little Lies (HBO Now)

* The 100 (have 8 episodes saved for this season)

* Star (back half of this season saved)

* When We Rise (4 episode miniseries -- is it worth it)

* The Expanse (last 8 episodes)

* Once Upon a Time (last 8 episodes)

* Fargo (S3)

* Iron Fist (Netflix)

* Fortitude (Amazon)

* Luke Cage (Netflix)

* Sense8 (Netflix)

* OA (Netflix)

* To Walk Invisible...the Bronte Sisters story on PBS

3. Rain, rain, rain...it's pouring outside. At one point there was a screeching cat fight, then it poured, really poured, and the cat fight became more...well cats screaming about it pouring it outside. Not pretty. Made me feel sorry for the kitties. I'm a cat person. Somewhat ambivalent when it comes to doggies, but kitties tug at my heart-strings. I stop when I see them. Cats make sense to me, they want to be left alone for the most part, and take their time to get to know you. They are the introvert intellectuals of the animal world.

Frigging tired of the rain. We've had one day of sunshine in 10 days. If I wanted that, I'd be living in Oregon or Washington.

1. Read reviews on Good Reads of "Witches of Karres" and...apparently the romance is between a 26 year old man and a 14 year old girl, and the plot is basically a precursor to Star Wars. One reviewer goes so far to state that Lucas more or less ripped Star Wars off of it. (LOL!) And, it's sort of a YA book that is cobbled together from various novellas the writer wrote, doesn't really have a cohesive plot, and very surreal reminiscent of Terry Prachett and Hitchkiker...hmmm...

2. I want a smutty Prince and Commoner story....and can't find one that looks appealing. I'm sure it is out there somewhere. I also want a smutty Scott Summers (aka Cyclops)/Ms. Frost or Scott/Jean Grey story...and can't find one. This is my difficulty with fanfic...plenty of slash fic, but very little canon. And I'm not really into slash, not that there is anything wrong with slash -- I am totally in favor of it. No judgement. I've even tried to explain it to folks outside fandom...and gave up. You either get or you really really don't. (I shipped Angel/Spike and Spike/Xander for a bit...so there's that. Also, Dru/Darla, Faith/Willow and Faith/Buffy...worked for me. As long as it furthers the characters...and seems logical or reasonable. I could even see Wes/Angel and Giles/Ethan. The Buffyverse lent itself to slash more than anything else...because the writer liked to play with subtext.) But most things, I tend to go canonical.

3. Am bored. Projects in stasis at work, waiting on lots of things. So email three different novels I'm working on to myself.

* The Flamenco Dancer (contemporary romantic family drama/mystery/corporate/legal thriller)
* SOW (post-apocalyptic science fiction adventure story)
* Tattoo (science fiction space opera/noir mystery gender bender novel)

All three have LGBT or Gay supporting and major characters, along with heterosexual and bisexual leads. Are multi-racial. And gender defying -- the female characters often have traditional male roles. Mainly because I like to write diverse characters that reflect people I've met in my world. And apparently I have this need to subvert and break established tropes.
