The Cult of Lincoln

I'm about midway through writing my Big ConDFW reaction post, but as I'm going to be working crazy late all week, it may be a while before I'm ready to post it here. In the meantime, I'm scurrying to post the sample chapters Jim read aloud for the Butcher Block. While editing, I came upon the following conversation snippet:

Jim: Chapter 2!
Me: Wait, saving.
Jim: Ah. We see who's really in control here!
Me: *dramatic evil laugh* Alright, go!
Attendee: ...You did that scarily well.
Jim: Yeah, I think she's got this hidden serial killer streak we'll see one of these years. I'm looking forward to it.
Me: Well, if Bad Horse worked so long on his whinny...
Jim: Alright, chapter 2!

Fandom creative awesomeness mini-linkspam:

Oooh, Feather is running another Dresden Files ficathon, right in time for Halloween. Now I just have to figure out what to request!

Tealin doodles Doctor Horrible, and it is love and win.

Aysha/Questionstar posts a quasi-tutorial of her amazing armor-making method. I wish my fandoms had characters with awesome armor, because desperately I want to experiment with some of these techniques.

Nerd Squee MiniSpam:

Amanda Palmer sings "I Google You". Highly amusing! (Good lord, I hate it when people google me)

Deleted Iron Man scene

Dollhouse scenelet

Alan Tudyk interviews Nathan Fillion

Hot library smut!

Political Mini-Spam:

David Shuster pwns PUMA

Nifty Anti-McCain ad

And a meme!

Pick a fandom, and I'll tell you which character(s) I would:
1. bake cupcakes for
2. trust with the keys to my car
3. put thumbtacks on their chair
4. have a crush on
5. pack up and leave if they moved next door
6. vote for President
7. pick as my partner in a buddy movie
8. pair up
9. vote off the island and into the volcano
10. wheedle into fixing my MP3 player

Last night, I dreamed that I was cast for the role of Winthrop (from the Music Man--an eight-year-old redhead boy with a lisp) for the Colbert Report, and I had to decide it it was worth quitting my job. To make the decision, I returned to my high school photography class, where I was delighted to see that my professor would have given me an A+ if I had actually turned in the final assignment, but had deducted 30%, bringing my score to a 75 (yes, I know that math doesn't make sense).

Very witty: Font Conference

Very horrible: Doctor Horrible, back on HULU for another week! Also, visit this website to get the good bad anti-villainous doctor's van remote on your iPhone!

Very athletic: the Hundred Push-Ups Project. I'm going to give it a shot!

Very animated: Princess and the Frog and Up teasers are here! EEEEE!!!

Very soulful: Neil Patrick Harris as a singing shoe fairy on Sesame Street (and I just had a flash of him playing Moist von Lipwig, even though he is unBritish. Y/Hell Y?)

Very evolved: Wolverine trailer!

Very hairy: Half-Blood Prince trailer! I have chills!
