Did you know...

...that there's a giant comprehensive master list for all six years of the sshg_exchange? It has 900+ fics listed and is sortable AND filterable by all sorts of characteristics: year, author, rating, etc. Wish I'd found it at the beginning of my four-day weekend instead of the end >:|

I'm plugging along on sshg_exchange and luciusbigbang, not to mention my writing group's twice-yearly Short Story In A Week which always, always, ALWAYS seems to fall during the busiest months of the year for me, in some sort of cosmic slap-down of my attempts to participate fully in it. So far we're three days into the first week and I've written king zippy nada, as a a friend of mine used to say.

But it's not my fault, really! I keep getting distracted -- not least by the aforementioned list, but also by the wonderful SS/HG AU fic Droxy's Folly, which went up on AO3 over the weekend. (If you haven't read this yet, drop everything and GO.) And of course by silly videos of cats, we all know how that goes.

Curse you, interwebz!!!!

Seems appropriate that I share one item of distraction, given (a) the current fests-in-progress, (2) the BBC's recent tut-tutting over 50 Shades of Grey (thanks, laurielover1912) and Newsweek's assertion that what's really wrong with FSoG is the lamentable quality of the prose. So, for your edification and jollification, I offer this light-hearted defense of smut, from Tom Lehrer:

Thanks for the rec! ::hugs::

There's nobody like Tom Lehrer to put perspective on things. When I was a kid and I asked my mother what we were having for dinner, she would invariably say "boiled hockey-puck."

I'm ... almost sorry to see this HGSS Exchange Master List. I mean, I do have to work tomorrow!

Be afraid of the List. Be very afraid...

That's the funniest thing I've seen/read in ages. Brilliantly and cleverly illustrated (Frankenfurter! George Takei! The Goblin King FTW!!), snarkily and intelligently written. I must find ways to work the word "douchenozzle" into my daily conversation...

Funny that she mentions the tampon scene. Apparently everyone who's tut-tutting about FSoG has suffered total amnesia about 9 1/2 Weeks, which is pretty much the exact same thing as FSoG, including this. Except the woman wises up and LEAVES at the end.

She's a virgin (of course) who's never taken any sexual interest in anyone before. Right. I'm fairly certain there hasn't been a woman this naive since 'round about 1954.

Or at least since...when did Bella and Edward get married?
