I spent several hours bringing together my research and info on Gamble/Street for my manifesto. I'm well on the way with it; in fact, it needs some tweaking and additional recs and not much more except the images that Charlie charliemc
and Brian brn_gamble
have promised to contribute.
So, Jimbo just_jimbo
and Joey fatjoey
, get crackin' on more fanfic!
Now I wish I hadn't eaten like a horse today and I'd gotten more exercise done. Gotta go do some floor stuff, at least. It was 92 degrees here today, so it's still hot, but that's no excuse. I've let myself go something terrible, and I only have myself to blame.
Still, I'm not going to let anything get me down today. Not even the fact I didn't get much of anything significant done at work again (and our Annual Board meeting is less than 48 hrs. from now).
I've really enjoyed this manifesto, never felt overwhelmed by it, never been bothered by the hours of research. It was such a worthwhile and fun project for me, and it makes me feel more in touch with fandom than I have in quite a while. I'm so glad we discovered Gamble/Street after our bitter experience with Aragorn/Legolas. As I've probablly said before, give me obscure and intimate over puffed up and arrogant any day. (And by obscure and intimate I mean shipped by a couple dozen people in the world. Maybe my essay will convert a few more.)
Hey Bri brn_gamble
, thanks for the new icons!
