question

Saw this from moreteadk and decided to take the test. I was averaging 97-98 wpm listening to Sarah McLachlan, but then my iTunes random hit Gym Class Heroes's "The Queen and I" and I hit my high of:

Lesson: music that pumps you up also hypes up your fingers!

All my D/G people are following round 4 of dgficexchange, yes yes? Featuring layout by twinklepug, sign ups start in about a week!

So, also got a question for you: Which of your own fics/art are you most proud of? Follow-up: Which fic/art of yours do most readers like? Same fic, y/n? I was going to ask which one is your favorite, but that might not be the one you're most proud of :P (It isn't for me!) Feel free to link me!

I've been wondering this for a while. I have this theory that the one you're proud of isn't usually the one most people seem to like. Example: The Barest Hint of Lemon is the fic I'm still getting reviews for. But, for many reasons, it's not what I'd put up as my best work. It's not that I don't like it, it's just...not what I'm most proud of.

On a related note, without a doubt, my absolute WORST has to be this D/G I wrote in 2004 called "Love, Ginny." Oh my god. It was worse than some of the earlier BSB fics I wrote. Best thing ff.net ever did was wipe my account clean and destroy that fic. Except like a year later I found out streetscribbles saved it. And then her computer got wiped and I thought now it's truly gone. And then she told me she somehow recovered it. Love, Ginny: The Fic That Just Wouldn't Die. Morbid fascination compelled me to ask her to send me the fic, to see if it was as bad as I remembered. It was so much more than that, I cannot say. For a while, before she sent it to me, I was debating whether I should put it up as a "how far I've come" thing, but for the good of all, that thing will never be up for public viewing.

Sad thing is, 180 is a perfect score on the LSAT. So I will TAKE that nickname!

OH YEAH! I remember you telling me that!

Remember that awful movie I told you I watched, DEBS, about a secret test hidden in the SAT and Jordana Brewster was in it?! Anyway, everyone called the main character "the perfect score" cuz that's what she got on the test. Uh, okay random tangent!

Also: In the wake of the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have proposed to scale back their coverage of Sunday's Golden Globe awards from a three-hour ceremony and dinner to a one-hour press conference announcing the winners.

WHAT?! I just saw that!

Re: WGA/Golden Globes - UH, I DID NOT FUCKING KNOW THAT EITHER. :(

Re: "the perfect score" THAT, in turn, reminds me of series/season finale of VMars when Wallace was being recruited by those Castle people and they called the other guy "2400." ALSO, does that not make you feel REALLY old? People are like "FUCK! I got a 1500." And I'm like THAT'S A BAD THING NOW?!?! . . . oh.

SAD! Just a press conference?!?! Way to make the winners feel...like winners.

YEAH! I don't even bother with the new SAT scores. Don't count. 1600 = old school :(
