September 4th, 2007: If you're not feeling like being productive today, I recommend TV Tropes - it's a website categorizing all sorts of story elements (from tv, fiction, video games - everywhere, really) that you've seen before but never had a name for. It's so easy to lose hours just browsing the site. It's a wiki, but, in their own words, "a buttload less formal than Wikipedia". I think you'll like it!
One year ago today: i have this plan to write a teen gross-out comedy where everyone but the teens is from a serious dramatic movie instead. all this improbable disgusting stuff happens to the teens, and all the dramatic characters have to deal with the consequences. people lose jobs!
