Today was the last day of my first week of reccing for [livejournal.com profile] lgbtq_recs so I thought I'd post a round-up over here. I have recced all of these on my journal at some point or other, so to long-time readers they may not be anything new.

Graphic Novel: Skim by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki
Author: Ali Smith
Manga: Hourou Musuko by Shimura Takako
Movie: Imagine Me & You
Book: Luna by Julie Anne Peters
Music: The Cliks
Book: City of Night by John Rechy

I'll be doing a second week at the end of the month. :)

1. OMG NEW MARIO FOR THE WII IS A SIDESCROLLER!!! Awesome video here! Apparently a key feature is that you can play simultaneously with up to four players, but that's not a draw for me (I don't have friends to play it with and even if I did, it would be more frustrating than anything; I am all for taking turns, but having my gameplay limited by what someone else is doing onscreen at the same time is so unappealing; this is why I am totally uninterested in MMORPGs). Thankfully single-player mode is an option as well. I'm so excited about this! I know what I want for Christmas. :D

2. Got myself signed up for [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match. The slots filled in like five minutes, so it's a good job I was there refreshing the page until signups opened!

3. I LOLed.

4. [personal profile] amadi started up [community profile] transfic, a comm for posting fic about transgender characters, both those who are trans in canon and those who aren't. Whee!

5. This, too, is awesome.

6. I got my Remix assignment! I have two fandoms in common with the author, so there should be plenty to choose from. I also, oddly enough, have a random idea for a fic I clicked on, but for which I am not at all familiar with canon. There's plenty of time to acquaint myself with canon, though, so I'm considering it.

Argh! Once again it's been almost a month since I got rid of any crap. :( This was a pretty big purge, though, so it balances out somewhat.

We decided to tackle the bedroom closet this time, though we really only did the clothes and didn't look too much at other stuff in there for the moment (it's not too badly cluttered, though; mostly just needs to be straightened up).

It's one of those big closets that covers the whole side of one wall, and our clothes (mostly shirts, since pants go in drawers) took up almost half of it. We really don't wear that much stuff, though, so they're just sitting there.

We managed to cut down the clothes by about a third, which makes me happy. We also got rid of a ton of old hangers and only kept the nice plastic ones.

Throw away
1 t-shirt with really bad discoloration under the arms

Give away
A big trash bag full of t-shirts and a couple sweaters (I didn't count how many)
2 pairs of pants (not pictured as they were so dusty we had to wash them)
1 dress jacket (not pictured because I forgot)
1 belt
1 Hello Kitty purse
More hangers than I can count
2 notebooks of my mom's (not pictured)

Pics here.


If anyone is interested in the Hello Kitty purse, let me know. It's so cute. It's slightly dingy, but I think using a soapy rag on it would brighten it up. I can take more pics if you want. I'd like $5 + shipping.

I also still have this penguin baby blanket. It's really adorable, quilted red and white squares with a penguin design. It is handmade, though not by me. We bought it on eBay years ago when we were in our obsessive penguin stage and buying anything cute with penguins. But...we don't have kids and don't plan on having kids, so it's just sat in a drawer all this time and its cuteness does us no good! It's 30x30 inches and brand new. I'd like $15 + shipping.
