Well, no, I didn't. But I did have another dream involving stressful packing for the Highlander con. WTF?

Regarding my cough, it has now moved further into my chest and I am now nicely congested, so rather than hacking at people, I've got that lovely deep phlegmy cough going on. But I am starting to feel better, honest :) Still tire easily though, so two hours at the hairdresser was a trial. I would have postponed and spared him exposure to my germs, but mum was getting all wistful that it'd be nice for it to be done before Tuesday.

Phlegmy really should be on the mood list, yo.

M&Ms are really good.

Many, many fans are great people and make fandom a wonderful place. However, there are always a few assholes who want to ruin it for everyone else. And this doth suck the big one.

I take it we're being specific, not general, here.

Mmmm, soup :)

The fandom observations...well, I was thinking of specific examples of things I believe are generally true. Someone in pop fandom ended up in ICU after unexpected surgery, and there's been an outpouring of love and support. Meanwhile, in Firefly fandom, a clueless newbie decided to present an actor (and producers, but that got prevented thank god) with a cd of other peoples songvids, without asking their permission. And now, assholes are hosting other people's songvids against their explicit wishes.

Hi, I've been watching this kerfuffle go down on the periphery here and I do agree that it. was. a. stupid thing to do.

Can I ask what you mean by hosting? Are you talking about other people putting other people's songvids up on their sites?

Yup, putting other peoples' vids up without permission, *and* refusing to take them down when asked. For a better account that I could give of this whole depressing mess, check out [ profile] popfantastic, [ profile] debchan, [ profile] bonibaru and [ profile] elke_tanzer, as they've all be involved in it.

You'd think by now I'd know how to do lj links *sigh*

Don't worry, I do this all the time and I should know better by now as well.

Ta for the info.

Heh, I might see you in the next couple of weeks yo.

Yay, get-togethers! And (hopefully) warmer Brissie weather! :)

It's actually been getting quite cool nights, but by Sydney standards it might be quite mild ;)

Cya then.

Yup, you're still a few degrees warmer, but good to know about the cooler nights. I've got to remember that the con's about a month later than the previous ones, in terms of clothes to bring :)
