Assorted liquorice.

I heard about Amazon's antics and can't decide whether to laugh or cry. Needless to say, I shan't be engaging in it, for starters because I believe in the gift economy of fandom, but also because their arbitrary censorship guidelines are something I won't fit my work to. In fact, I'm more inclined than ever not to be an Amazon customer as a result of this.

Another place I'm not a customer of? Facebook. (Trigger warning for that link.) And happy not to be so, but kudos to Friedman et al. for coming up with a viable strategy to fight back against such a giant corporation.

In more personal news, I have a throat infection and am trying to hack up a lung. Fun times. On the positive side, I have the next six days off, so I shan't bother anyone while hacking up said lung. I have meds, so I shan't croak, but I shall be cranky because I hate being sick. (And yes, I was sick a week ago. I needed that time off, clearly.) Now while my immune system is mocking me with a silent snigger, I shall be over here, cranky and looking at pictures of kittens. And Steve McGarrett.
