Administration
Happy birthday to rintrahroars and sinboy!

State of the 'Song
Exhausted; woke up at 1something with allergy hives (why? i do not know), and the pain-adrenaline took a while to crash. Still a bit excited about last night's discovery.

No, I won't be shifting to a daily ibuprofen regimen! It's just nice to probably able to take it when I need it.

Yeah I'm Wearing a Corset But.
The question that wasn't outright asked by anyone, but anyway, here it is: If you do not want to be Looked At, why do you wear a corset?

Answer: Do you know how comfortable a well-fitted corset is? And it is awesome for your posture. I tend to slump sometimes, which is not good for my back. Also, I have that thing where I find physical pressure of that sort comforting.

So it totally is for me, not for onlookers. And anyway I only wear overbust corsets that don't do the boob-shelf thing.

And anyway ANYWAY I should be able to wear what I damnwell please, and I'm never scantily-clad anyway.

Yeah This is Rape Culture.
As pointed out in my comments. And yeah, it is. But it's such a different and specific asset of it that it caught me off guard.

Also? Sometimes the arm holding the flaming sword gets tired, y0.

Link Soup: Things That Cracked Me Up Yesterday
* What do you do if your fame has receded and you're now known primarily for a .gif of you crying? If you're James Van Der Beek, you roll with it, and how.
* Smart Bitches, Trashy Books has been liveblogging a reading of Snooki's "novel".
* A thousand birds and ten thousand fish drop dead! Who do you call for a cogent analysis of this phenomenon? If you are Anderson Cooper, you call... Kirk Cameron? Because he was in Left Behind? Really? To his credit, Cameron knows he doesn't know anything.

Work, home, almost certainly nap. No evening plans.
