Changed my default userpic; it's now an animated scroll of the closing paragraph of Keith Olbermann's Special Comment the night Gabby Giffords was shot. It's an important reminder, to myself and hopefully to others.

Keith no longer holds quite the same space in my fangirl's heart that he once did. [personal profile] gridlore stopped following him before Countdown went off the air for the final time, noting that it had become the liberal equivalent of all of the conservative echo-chamber shows he railed against so often, and I ultimately had no choice but to acknowledge the truth in that statement. I've used the #KOdependent hashtag on Twitter once or twice since then, and was only half-joking about it. But in the wake of this week's results, Doug is appreciating the need for a liberal firebrand (or dick-punching arsonist, if you prefer) once more.

In other news, Facebook just scared the bejesus out of me. Somebody flipped the wrong switch somewhere, apparently, and they put memorial banners on everyone's profile. I discovered this the hard way by going out to my sister-in-law's profile.

My transgender sister-in-law who just started hormone therapy earlier this summer, and who has been posting about whether she's going to rush the process along to make sure she still can, or whether she's just going to go back in the damn closet.

I've already heard about one suicide brought on by the election (and not one of the unconfirmed reports, either). The possibility that C might join their number was entirely too real, and I did not need that.

And how are YOU doing?

Well...

...if I had to miss out on the Burn, at least it meant I was home for the premiere of Keith Olbermann's new show.

HE WORE THE JACKET.

I screamed. ([personal profile] gridlore was displeased by this.) I just wanted it framed and hanging in the studio somewhere.

I was concerned he was going to drag ALL the catchphrases out in the first show ("Mr. Dictionary has failed us yet again..."), but my GOD, was it good to see him back 1) on the air and 2) covering sports.

He's got John McEnroe on the show later this week. My two biggest sports crushes EVER in the same room. (Yes, arrogant bastards, the pair of them - we already knew I had a type.) I'll be in my bunk.

Most of you have probably encountered Texts from Last Night at this point. And any of you who participated in the Trick-or-Treat meme I did last Halloween have seen some of the astonishing variety of Tumblr blogs that take those texts and stick them onto screen caps from various and sundry series for epic lulz. I've become a regular contributor to Texts from the Anchor Desk; almost all of my submissions are made anonymously, though if you ask me if something is mine, I'll usually tell you.

Now, I tend not to "cross the streams" with my blogs, but I'm just too enamored of my latest creation not to share. )

I got another reply from Keith on Twitter!

I actually did consider responding with "Sounds like a great idea. Mind if I join you?" But I guess enough of the booze I had earlier tonight had already burned off that what passes for my better judgement kicked in. ;-)

KO knocks it out of the park once again on the topic of marriage equality. (Now if we could just get him to call it marriage equality.)

Back here, because Current's videos are set to autoplay, and I can't figure out how to shut it off. )

Keith just retweeted me.

If the world HAS to end today, I can die happy.

"And now, because you asked for it: a picture of me, recording a James Thurber Audio Book."

Happy fangirl is happy.

So today was Promo Day over at the Keith Olbermann Media Empire™ - we got a few teaser shots throughout the afternoon, and then one of the Good Ones this evening. My comment, both on the FOK forum and on Twitter, was that if he'd actually chosen a purple tie for that shot, the amount of carnage amongst the fangirls would have been truly devastating.

I had to go and open my mouth.

Photobucket

Why, yes, yes I did.... )

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go make some new wallpaper.

I have nothing else to say here that is either relevant or true.
