Luna would approve. :)

However, no one will approve if you don't make it to the starting line on time!

So make sure to get your entries in! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/811500.html

Second! LOL. Happy first! (have some almond cookies) And I feel no remorse for being on the LIST OF SHAME, looks like I've got a lot of company.

(However am tweaking this weeks piece now) :)

At least I'm in good, if shamefaced, company. I have been working on my entry on and off all day (well, except for when I went out to the grocery store to acquire a lasagna for dinner). With luck, I will get it finished, polished, and posted before bed this evening.

Of course, knowing me, that means around 1:00-2:00 AM, LOL. :)

Hey Gary - are you going to also do a List o' Shame for those who haven't yet linked into the Home Game / Killing Floor post, since that's part of this week's assignment?
Dec. 8th, 2014 02:33 am (UTC)
Yeah, I was sort of hoping for "Half Shame" status between the two requisites. ;-)

I have finals, leave me alone *whines and cries*

...Not to imply I've been studying or anything, because I haven't, but...

Resource Post
(Hopefully this is okay and not bothersome.) I had an idea just now, since somebody asked me the other day if they could pick my brain on something if they have need to - why doesn't everybody comment here with stuff they know about or have personal experience with? (If, of course, they're willing to help out writers in the community who need a resource.)

Anybody can PM me at any time with questions about:

- Homelessness
- Sex work
- Drug use (In my prodigal youth I did most of the major ones and a couple cute obscure ones like kratom and opium. I can't help with psychedelics like LSD, I've never tried any.)
- Medical or biology stuff, though less because I have advanced knowledge on this and more because if I don't know something, at my school and in my circle of friends I have access to people who do
- Russian culture and language is best left to the Russians. But I can help if you absolutely cannot get help anywhere else or need it in a hurry, or if you need something extremely inconsequential like "Hey, what's a good song by Russian classic rock band?" (to which I would reply This Is It by DDT). Just bear in mind that I'm an American, Russian is not my first language, and my information might be inaccurate, outdated, or colored by my Western cultural and linguistic upbringing. I can also comment on the Russian-American diaspora. (Though possibly not well there either because the vast majority of the Russian-American diaspora is from a different background, Russian-Americans tend to be Jewish, have college-educated parents, etc.)

I am very friendly! Do not be afraid to talk to me! If something is too personal or if I don't know something I'll just say so nicely, don't worry.

Re: Resource Post
This is actually a really wonderful idea and I'm glad you started this thread! :D

...though now I want to pick your brain about ALL OF THESE.

I can help with:

- general music stuff, especially concert band / TUUUBAAAA.

- pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding info

- some aspects of tech / programming

- New Zealand

- all sorts of stupid random trivia that seeps into my brain and never leaves

I am also friendly and happy to be PMed :)

Re: Resource Post
I can help with:

- Drug Use (probably most of the ones reckless_blues didn't cover - including some unusual hallucinogens, and I also just know a lot of random crap about some prescription medications because my brain stores that shit)

- Working on an inpatient psych ward (in the late 90s but it apparently hasn't changed much)

- Maybe also some aspects of tech/programming since it's what I do

- Uhhhh... restaurant work? I waited tables for a long time.

- Narcissists!

- Childbirth experience that didn't go great but didn't end in tragedy

- Oh, and I guess Judaism but I'm pretty lapsed at actually observing it

...Yeah, I'm pretty boring.

Re: Resource Post
PM'ed you! Feel free to answer or not as you see fit (or to ask more questions about why/what I want to know if you want, or whatever).

I have shameful problems . Glad to know this thread.
Dec. 8th, 2014 12:33 pm (UTC)
I'm working on it. This is the first time in the last 12 hours that I've been able to even get to LJ...

Re: Resource Post
I may not be playing, but I'm here and only a PM away :)

I consider myself to be well versed in:

~Baking (duh)
~Almost anything culinary-related. I've never been an executive chef, but I've been in food service long enough to know a crapload of stuff. Want to know why the staff of a classically-run kitchen is called a brigade? Need to know the history of a particular dish or why you never use raw pineapple in a cooked dish? I'm your gal...and if I don't know, I can certainly research it for you.
~Anything retail-related, from profit margins to supervising a staff to techniques used to entice customers to buy.
~New England, whether it's history or architecture or the Boston accent or the Red Sox :)
~Dogs! I have most experience with snowdogs (they have their own peculiarities), but basic behavior and and such transcends all breeds.
~Caregiving for a parent with dementia.
~Writing! If you'd like a beta, please PM me. I'd be happy to help you.

Resource post:

Natural disasters, current and historical, including mass extinctions.

Epidemics and weird diseases, current and historical.

Ancient ancient history and technology.

Wars and warfare.

Lots of environmental stuff.

Hmmm. Looking at this I think I can sum it up in anything that mother nature does to fuck our shit up, and the ways in which we try to stop it, and in the process ends up fucking up ourselves.
