So, apparently i can receive calls but the party on the other end can't hear me. Look at me having love for the new phone system.

In more pleasant news, i'm finally getting around to reading the zines i procured late last summer. In glory-of-the-snow, sitonmykarma talks about a poetry class she took and David Lehman's The Daily Mirror and writing a poem a day whether you want to or not, and i thought about how buffyverse1000 is eating my brain and how even leaving aside all the other arguments around fanfic, it can be really good practice -- writing consistent characterization, plotting, dialogue, just the act of getting stuff written down -- and i thought about something she said about talking about experiences in poetry rather than prose and i thought about how much writing is taking experiences we've had and playing with them and how that isn't all that different from what fanfic is and was reminded of one of the buttons we saw at Pandemonium and yeah.
