Not been around much

There's a reason, or several. Really.

(1) During the last election, I felt in the minority, judged. I'm economically and socially right wing, but think anyone genuinely disabled should get every benefit going.

(2)I detest Wincest. No argument about it. It's revolting.

A) I'm disabled (now both mentally and physically), and thank you so much for your vocal support. Thank You!

B) Agreed!

Mental support, in particular, is underestimated.

It can also be taken too far. A bad day isn't depression, but just the kind of bad day we all have.

I've missed you, too! You're fun to talk to :-)

[I do sympathise with your position on Wincest. There is a lot in fandom that either squicks me or just plain gets on my nerves and sometimes my f-list seems flooded with it (by community members, I hasten to add, not by individual friends). For the most part I keep silent because it takes all sorts, etc, but the other week I threw a bit of a wobbly, and posted something I thought was 'banter', and got a response that still has me licking my wounds... So I understand why you might be disinclined to hang around LJ.]

Lovely to see you, Kitty. I was afraid you were gone for good.

You won't get any Wincest from me. I've been trying to watch season 1 of SPN and really struggling. I can't imagine ever writing fic about it. Of any sort.
:(

Thank you, Deb.

LOL. The show is really good, worth watching.

The Wincest is weird. A couple of Wincesters have tried to expain to me, but it's just odd.

It's nice to see you posting!

I'm a left winger and agree with you that disabled people should be properly supported

And I'm not a big SPN fan but Wincest is squicky!
kitty_poker1
Apr. 25th, 2011 11:25 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

I get really annoyed by labels. I'm, on the whole, a right winger but would pay extra on my income tax (easy to say as I've been unemployed for several years) to make sure those who need it are properly taken care of.

I just know too many employable people who sit at home, watching telly and not even trying to get a job. They give those who try a bad name.

So lovely to see you again. I know I've been guilty of absence myself, but it's always lovely to see a post from you.

I'm not really active in any fandom at the moment (cricket fangirling doesn't count!), so you won't get any Wincest from me either.
kitty_poker1
Apr. 25th, 2011 11:31 pm (UTC)
Cricket fangirling?? Freddie rules. LOL!

Wincest is just nasty. I've said it before but I'm saying loud and proud: Incest!fic has no redeeming features.

Hello! Glad to see you back.

I am unjudgey, personally.

Asa far as Wincest I have two boys who have a close relationship, so I just don't understand it.
kitty_poker1
May. 4th, 2011 10:05 pm (UTC)
I *know* I replied but nothing is showing up. I'd guess there's been yet another prob with LJ.

Your lack of judgement is an inspiration. Not kidding, here. I mean it.

I have two brothers with a very close relationship, far closer than the vast majority of sexual relationships, so it seems strange, to say the least. :)

Nice to hear from you.

#1 ... anyone genuinely disabled should get every benefit going.

... couldn't agree more.

#2 ... revolting indeed!

kitty_poker1
May. 4th, 2011 10:11 pm (UTC)
Thank you. :)

#1 The operative word is genuine. I have no time for fakers, but anyone with a real reason for not being able to work should be supported.

#2 I think we're a bigger band than some would like to think. *g*

Hi hi! Missed you.

And I am working on that fic you prompted months ago. It just took an unfortunately personal turn, so I'm waffling over what to do with it. I'll probably keep it but won't post it, just email to you. That okay?

Glad to see you are not dead.

*hugs*

Personal fic isn't a bad thing. It can be very helpful for working out issues. *smooch*

LOL! You always make me laugh. I'm down but not out. And you'll never see a series of depressed posts from moi. :p

At least you moved away from that weird Don/Charlie... Was that the bros? You know I'd never read it. *g*
