Written World: Quick Note

That's some of the backlog.  I've had a shitty week and I'm not telling any of you about it, and if you ask for an explanation or quibble over the links posted here I'll probably snap and metaphorically bite your head off (which is all I can do until they perfect the technology to actually bite someone's head off over the internet).  And I really don't give a fuck this time if there are repeats or out of date news or unclearness on how it applies or not naming the authors so that you can tell who the trolls are today so don't bother complaining.  Most of these are quality links.  Enjoy them and leave me alone.

Also, don't comment with your sympathy or appreciation because I don't want to hear that either. If you really want to be nice, send me links I missed so I don't have to sift through the ungodly folders of unread blogposts I have sitting on my accursed computer. Damn the internet and my parents for bequeathing me the personality flaws that led to this sorry social position. Happy fucking Memorial Day.  --R.
