I seem to be turning into more and more of a lurker, but I thought I should post something to justify my continued use of this site. So here are some cool things I found around the internet recently.
How to Rebuild the Wizarding World, according to Foreign Policy magazine. This is highly recommended reading for anyone interested in politics, Harry Potter, or both.
A Complete History of the Soviet Union, Arranged to the Melody of Tetris (scroll down for the video). Be warned, this will get stuck in your head for some time.
Calm Blue Oceans, a fun webcomic.
Knite, an absolutely beautiful flash comic that I can't recommend enough. Go and read it.
Some of those Viking warriors were actually women.
Rainbow cupcakes!
And a non-internet-related rec: the Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold. I'm about halfway through this series now after [ profile] shadowsinfire persuaded me to read it and it's lots of fun. It's military sci-fi with a disabled hero who survives on his wits, a left-leaning, progressive political viewpoint, a good sense of humour, and some really interesting ideas. It also crosses into other genres: whodunnit, political intrigue, and, I kid you not, Regency romance. Highly recommended.

Uni is now over for the year! And I'm glad! Four papers + Nationals + world's second-worst exam timetable = stressed, exhausted me. I'm now in the process of catching up on sleep.

I'm not very good at posting, am I? Half the time I start to post and then something shiny goes by and I lose interest. Stupid ADD.

In order to prevent this post from being entirely pointless, here are some links to Melissa McEwan's steampunk wedding ring, the TV Tropes page for Walking With Dinosaurs and Syaoran and Watanuki cats

Stolen from Shakesville:
To what stereotype(s) do you conform, much to your chagrin and/or amusement? And what stereotype(s) do you defy?

I'll post my own answers later.

I have new userpics!  And I must post to celebrate this!
All my lectures are finished for this semester and my exams are in a couple of weeks.  Meaning I now have to study.  Fun.
And I recommend Gunnerkrigg Court.  So does Neil Gaiman.

But whatever.

Post anything you like here, but post it anonymously. It can be something big or small, whatever you feel compelled to. Maybe a (1) story, (2) secret, (3) confession, (4) fear, (5) love—the possibilities are endless. Be sure to comment anonymously, though.
