2. I think I may actually have my yuletide letter and requests and stuff all done in advance this year? WHAT IS THIS WIZARDRY. I have three definites + about five "if it's in the tagsets".

3. I am TOTALLY going to the cat show this weekend, because sometimes you just have to accept who you are and lean into it.
4. I still go to pinboard.in/popular/fandom fairly often these days when I need something to read. It's not as good as del.icio.us was by a long shot - not enough users, not flexible enough search - but the fandom page still usually has at least one fic I'm interested in reading. Because of pinboard's user profile, though, the fic recs are mixed in with all sorts of other longreads from all over the web (usually with a computer/science/social justice/lefty politics bent.) This mix creates an interesting effect, though, where sometimes you see a link and go "ooh, that sounds like an interesting fic-- oh wait" -- or "ooh, that sounds like an interesting article!-- oh wait." So here is a Fun Poll for you, based on the items currently on the page.
Which of these are fiction titles?
A Local History
A Soft Murmur
An Oral History of ------'s Infinite Loop
How Mars Will Be Policed
How To Be Alone
How To Get Repeat Customers
Pyeongchang and Prejudice
We've Got Some Work To Do
YouTubers Are Not Your Friends
