From the vault: isms

I’m a bit worried
about all of this
rampant pigeonholism &
unnecessary categorisationism,
but I guess you could say
I’m a believer in
sleeping latism,
vegetarian lasagnism &
thai green curryism,
romantic poeticism,
friendly humourism,
pub bandism,
early morning sexism,
Sunday paperism,
brand new bikism &
crappy old carism,
late-night T.V.-ism,
Star Trek Voyagerism,
good bookism,
open firism,
thunderstormism &
user-friendly cynicism.

    Wonderful! I hope you have progressed, as I have, from Star Trek Voyagerism to Battlestar Galacticism.

      alas i never did get into the old bsg, benjamin. these days i’m more of a whedonist with strong fireflyist and astonishingxmenist tendencies. also a reformed whovian, but that’s a whole ‘nother story…

    Reformist Whovian!

    Me too. Sadly because I just inherited the whole collection from Max Flory’s wonderful and extensive library.

Quelle Grammage!
Absolutely. two egregious typos in an ad for a comms job at a book publisher. do i weep or laugh? anna and i both discussed the fact that every pd we've read lately has had at least one typo in it. way to make me feel out of step, universe. this is a very well made poem. it's called "Travelling Through the Dark". *shudder* #williamstafford I am binge watchin star trek voyager right now and am gobsmacked by the recurring theme of helping out your friends and being nice to strangers even when theyre frightening because its the right thing to do. where has this theme gone when it comes to the stories we celebrate and share with each other?
