Aztec Camera - Knife

My Big Fat Canadian Fandom

Yes, I have a new fandom. No, really, I do. I blame Josh Reads Comics for getting me started.

It involves snarking on For Better or For Worse.

Yes, I confess to being really irritated at the thought of Liz Patterson getting together with her lame, wimpy (but recently divorced, and therefore available) grade-school boyfriend Anthony, particularly given the general awesomeness of her current boyfriend Constable Paul Wright. Long have I been tempted to leave flaming bags of poo on Lynn Johnson's doorstep every time she seems to be foreshadowing the horrorshow of white-bread mediocrity that is Liz/Anthony. Long have I also wanted to beat several of the Patterson family members with a clue stick, especially April, so it is a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.

The good thing about FBoFW fandom is that it has precious little fic, no vids, and very few ship wars (unless you count the growing number of people who think that Constable Paul is way too good for Liz, but it's kind of hard to disagree there).

Okay, so admitting to emotional investment in a comic strip soap-opera (which is, unfortunately, what FBoFW has mostly become) is a bit lame, but hey, at least it's not Rex Morgan or Mary Worth.


As you were.
A Pocket Full of Murder

Caution: Bad Pun

This was my husband's thoughtful remark after seeing all four episodes of the very odd, very Buddhist Fifth Doctor story Kinda:

"I hope the Kinda don't lay eggs."


(But if they did, I bet the toys would be really cool, once you regained your sanity enough to play with them.)

ETA: Oh, you don't have them in the States! That's so sad! Evil overprotective government.
