Heard an amusing interview on NPR with the Smart Bitches on their new book Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches' Guide to Romance Novels. After an absolutely painful intro that they so should've not bothered with, things got funny quickly. The magic hoo-hoo! I want to check out this book now. XD
On the topic of romance, rachelmanija asks for recs on angsty romance novels and invites people to create your own romantic hero/heroine.
oyceter makes a good point about Amazon Fail (is the official name with the "#" in front?) here. No matter what the real story behind this incident, Amazon's secret categorization of "adult" books is disturbing.
It seems like the long-talked-about great LJ migration is finally happening? Seems like everyone (but me) is getting a Dreamwidth account and some have already decided to jump ship...
I made Panna Cotta! It was massively easy and yet I was able to mess it up! Luckily I didn't botch it so badly that it came out inedible, and it was very, very tasty. This time I made it with half-and-half...Next time I'm using heavy cream. I recommend making it! Just make sure the gelatin is completely dissolved. XD;
I read a hilarious NaruSasu fic over at Everyday I Miss You. It's the continuation of a fic called 全ては、掌の中 that she'd posted a couple of days ago, shockingly titled（続）全ては、掌の中. In the first fic Sasuke has a problem. Naruto is harrassing him constantly. Naruto had confessed to him, so he'd confessed right back. Unfortunately for Sasuke, Naruto wants sex badly. Sasuke...not so much. Finally, Sasuke asks Kakashi for advice on how to deal with Naruto. He asks Kakashi to say something to Naruto, but Kakashi laughs at the idea that Naruto would listen to him. He tells Sasuke to just sleep with Naruto once since Naruto is probably just pushing because Sasuke said no. Sasuke goes away to think about it. Of course it turns out that Naruto had figured Sasuke would seek Kakashi and had gotten Kakashi to help him out. In the sequel Sasuke falls into Naruto's trap (the sex is not massively graphic but is really funny), realizes Kakashi had been in on it, and in the very last sentence is tromping around the village with his sharingan turned on to exact his revenge on Kakashi. XDXD Now if she'd only update that other badfic....
