Whew. It took for-freaking-ever to get everything transfered over with rating and word counts and such but I am so, so pleased to announce that I've updated my recs website in a huge fashion. Now powered by wordpress, all of my recs are totally searchable by fandom, author, wordcount, ratings and more.

With over 340(!!!) stories to read, maybe you'll find some you've not read before; also I normally just rec stories as they come to me but I might be going back to rec some old favorites now that I've finished with the site update.

It's a new url too, so if you have bookmarks, delicious or otherwise, don't forget to update them!

Seriously. I love the world. This is the funniest news in ever. Oh man. The irony of it all! The outrage! I just. If I tried I couldn't make up something this awesome. I nearly fell out of my seat laughing when I first heard about this.

I saw Serenity on opening night. It was my third time since I was lucky enough to see it in previews twice. I posted about it when I first saw it because there was no way not to, but I figure maybe I should link to it now since so many of you have been able to see it and might have avoided reading about it when I first posted. SPOILERS, dude.

I can't remember who posted this, but someone on my flist put up the Sci Fi Channel's Making of Serenity special. I have it up for download if anyone's interested (please right click and save-as, feel free to link to this post not the file)

I keep forgetting to post about this but I met Neil Gaiman on the 28th of September. He was doing a book signing at a place called Books Passage and he was so lovely and gracious. He signed everyone's books, no matter how many they had for him and I was near the end of the line but he didn't seem unhappy or tired or anything. I on the other hand was completely flustered. I'm not sure how I got through saying hello to the man, let alone talking about how much I adore him. One of my friends works at the store and had hooked me up with an advanced readers copy which I had Neil sign. I swear to god I want to wrap the think in plastic and put it in a safety deposit box now. It's actually a numbered galley (324 of 450) AND signed. Very rare indeed. Some authors won't sign galleys at all because of the ebay potential, but I asked for it to be personalised and he didn't seem to mind. Can I just say that I love him? Because I do. A lot.

Michael Chabon was at the signing leading the discussion, he got out pretty quick when it broke up for the book signing or else I probably would have had the chance to embarrass myself in front of not one but two of my favorite authors that night. If Kurt Vonnegut and Johnathan Lethem had been there I probably would have suffered some sort of brain explosion. Can I please marry a brilliant author now?

Lastly, a plea for help from an email from my sister:
Do you know a good fan site for Lost where there are intelligent people?
I've pretty much avoided the Lost websites myself, but I'm hoping you all are more knowledgeable. Anyone have any recommendations?

As long as everyone's posting about snowstorms, I think you should all be aware that the expected high in my part of California tomorrow is 61°F with mostly sunny skies. *smug face*

I now return you to your regularly scheduled friendslist, please be advised that the entire East Coast is in for a period of extremely inclement weather.
