I have been suddenly submerged in work, and expect this state of affairs to continue until the end of the week. Fannish withdrawal is hitting me hard, y'all. I haven't even been able to read DW properly, let alone comment on all of your awesome posts, and talk about Guardian, and plot/write/angst about not writing!

Instead I must pretend to be a functioning adult. Oh well. ;-)

Anyway! To make this post more interesting, have a pic of an amusingly risqué ad I saw today.

Translation: "I was in Jim today. Did me a world of good."

They're not talking about pegging, are they...? Right?

Crimes of Websites Past

So, a while back [personal profile] galaxysoup and I were reminiscing about the horrors of classic fannish website design. Remember when Geocities was a thing and disclaimer pages made you hunt for the second comma in the thirteenth line? Remember purple text on black background, blinking gifs and flashing text, cheesy ornamental buttons, weird graphics and crazy fonts?

Well, as it turns out, I still have evidence of some of my transgressions. Here they are, for your amusement! Pictures under the cut!  )

Sooo… what do you think?
