LiveJournal sent a birthday heads-up for susanmgarrett this morning. This made me grin, because in addition to generally wishing her well and many more when her day comes, her birthday is properly a late-summer prompt to fill fkfic-l with stories! :-) The "Susan's Birthday Challenge" was a good tradition.
And speaking of fkfic-l, did you notice that Mary Ch. is back and posting? [insert Abby's Snoopy Dance icon here] Although she is sorely plagued by =20 disease this time out, and is working on fixing that with Hotmail standing in her way. You must hard-wrap story posts to get through the listserv clean with all recipients. I use 60 characters these days because of listmembers who use Yahoo Mail, which wraps even more severely than the listserv. I know how to get Eudora to hard-wrap for me at a chosen character count; do you know other tips and tricks for other email and wordprocessing applications that we could share?
I taped the two-hour premiere of Mr. Parriot's (and Ms. Cox's) new series, Defying Gravity, last Sunday, but have not yet watched it. The next episode is tonight at 10:00 PM Eastern/Pacific on ABC in the US (and those parts of Canada that get US broadcast stations).
So we're definitely doing an FK-only fest/ficathon game! Yes! Details remain to be worked out, but as the current date suggestion is May 2010, we've got plenty of time.
