A Bit of Cultcha & a Fic: The Tar Baby

I posted a 1,000 word fic over at nekid_spike that y'all might enjoy. It has a nekid_spike punchline, so I'll probably just leave it over there, since most of you who would be interested are already members of that community. Check it out:

The Tar Baby

Comments sincerely appreciated!


In other news, I went to see our local Lamplighters production of Gilbert & Sullivan's Iolanthe last night, and my argument that G&S were the Joss Whedon of the 19th Century gained new ammunition.

Exhibit A:

To indicate a person of the highest rank, Mr. Gilbert came up with the following term: Rankiest

See what I mean?

Here's a little summary of the play:

Gilbert & Sullivan's subversive political satire on how a government SHOULD be run. Featuring the tour de force "Nightmare Song" and a band of dancing fairies doing battle with a dim-witted Parliament.

It was lovely, a visual and aural delight. Plus, I always love it when the gentlemen of the chorus enter from the back of the house, dressed in ermine capes and doing the doddering "House of Lords" routine. Especially just now, after a very satisfying American version of same in real life just last Tuesday.

Oh, and reading the front page of the paper today? Led to tears of joy. Things already seem to be coming around. I don't want to jinx anything, so I'll just sit here and sigh happily.

Happy Sunday, all. Have a great week.
