I’d KILL for a anecdote about an… Read More

on March 25, 2009

Okay–I warned you it was coming, but I have to say, you all egged me on. See, the thing is, I mentioned fanfiction, and I got a whole lot of people saying, “Yeah–I wrote that.” Some of them even said, “I’ve been writing fanfic since I was a kid.” And an even bigger batch of… Read More

Some marshmallows, some nuts, some chocolate… all in all, total wacky goodness, you know? And really, it sounded better than ‘crapdoodles’ or any of the other random names we have for random-bit posts, right? (Although I don’t know… I may pull up ‘crapdoodles’ at a later date.
