Finally! A quick, secure line of communication

I wrote a fic about JMFJ talking to his little brother which is loosely based on my relationship with my two oldest sisters. Unfortunately, thanks to early_afternoon's umm, highlighting of a pedo fic recently, I kept looking at passages and thinking, "is this pedo?", "how about this?" and "oh God, this might sound like pedo rape". :( And it is COMPLETELY INNOCENT. Anyway, there is also some Donuts in it. :) Fic here: One Last Summer

I've been sick the past few days. I had a sort of stomach bug thing, but maybe I just had a cold and happened to eat something bad at the same time. Alex & family are in Hawaii with Chip and Jenny for a couple of weeks, so it was a mellow weekend.

My great victory was forcing myself to work out a couple of times when I didn't quite feel like it. To be fair, I was recovering from being sick and somewhat weak from lack of food (cos' of the stomach thing). A lot of Biggest Loser-style almost throwing up was involved the second day. :P But I'm getting results, not really suffering and still eating enjoyable food. I also felt pretty good after climbing the seven flights of stairs to the bus stop at Genentech today. :D

I was super excited the other night because my dad sent me an email! I didn't know that he had email. Now I can communicate with him using means other than sending him snail mail. That was secure because he picks up the mail. Texting him was not an option because my mother reads his text messages. :( But now he has email. :)

I know Bob Dylan is one of those deified musicians, but... I really don't care for his performances. Like, he's a very good songwriter, I think, but every time I see someone cover his songs, they're pretty much always better than the original, which is something you rarely see, haha. KT Tunstall's Tangled Up in Blue totally blows his version away.

I shall read that tomorrow when I am supposed to be doing a test at work! The test is one, well 'mice' and I know 'mice' backwards, it's 'ecim' and I didn't even have to study to know this!

You have... tests? I thought that kind of thing stopped after school!

god lord we have a test on 'types of income' which we have to know because people keep hiding income so they get more tax back. Will the NZ govt has decided to crack down on it but jimmney cricket, it's only like 12 definitions to memorize and some of them are in the question like "what is overseas income?"

I suppose it is crucial that you have this information at your fingertips!

There was pedo fic there, but it has been removed.

Oh God. Dare I ask which players were involved? I can't believe I missed this.

Well. Let's just say that their last names were Staal. ALL OF THEM.

I agree re:Bob Dylan. He is a classic example of an excellent (read:GENIUS) songwriter, who should really just let other people sing his songs for him. I feel embarassed for him when I hear him trying to sing.

The funny thing is that I'll go on YouTube to listen to the covers and inevitably half the comments will be about how they don't hold a candle to the original and it's like... seriously?

(Deleted comment)
Well, none of these people are actually evaluating the songs objectively because Dylan is a big musical hero and he was the original performer. But if you take prejudice out of the way, it's really not a contest. ;)

ITA about Dylan. And not just because I'm mad at him for introducing the Beatles to pot.

Hehe, I didn't know about that! I haven't really heard that many of the covers, but it seems like his songs are more suitable for women to perform?
