I have a Gmail account for fannish purposes, but I never considered using it for real life purposes before this post. People have come up with such novel uses for Gmail: backup of RL account, forwarding through Gmail to take advantage of the spam filter, etc. I love Gmail all the more now. *huggles it*
I don't read fandom newsletters, but now that I know they're out there I'ma see if I can find some I want to read.
I was kind of meh about fandom newsletters for a while, but now I know the truth: they are LOVE. Let me know if you find any interesting ones - there are a lot mentioned in this thread. And witchqueen has, in her nearly infinite coolness, collected a ton of newsletters and noticeboards here. So if you're wanting to experience the LOVE, well, I'm guessing you'll be able to find something interesting there. (I'm reading it in stunned joy as we speak.)
Diving For Pearls
Oh, wow. It's been so long since I've read PotC. *clicks*
And finally, everyone should see Howl's Moving Castle
I've been wary 'cause I love the book. (Diana Wynne Jones is great, except when she's, um, really not. But she's great about 8 books out of 10.) Have you read it? Did you think the movie was true to the book? Or not true to the book, but not in annoying ways? 'Cause if it's either of those, I'd love to see it; Diana Wynne Jones + Hayao Miyazaki should be the movie match made in heaven.
