And I am SO very not joking. I can't get enough of Supernatural. Like, I'm crazy enough about it (and just plain crazy in general?) that I'm planning on starting the whole series over again as soon as I catch up to the current episodes. I love this show SO. HARD. Those boys! I adore them. And if you say a bad word against Sammy, I WILL CUT YOU.

Ahem. Dialing back the cray-cray: Anyone out there have any SPN het and/or gen fic recs? Or excellent communities to watch? SPN fandom is big enough that I'm lost as to where to start, especially since I don't have any particular 'ship to hitch a ride on. I don't really care about the pairing, though Ruby would be my least favorite with anyone. I would be TOTALLY okay with Ruby/DIAF, I suppose.

So, yeah. Help, por favor? You'll have my undying gratitude for helping me with my obsession. :)

I have some lyrics I'd love to have translated, and as you can imagine, online translators make a pretty fair mess of things. (One line was translated as And on my horse-gear, which I doubt is what it actually means. hahaha!)

Can anyone help? Or know of someone who can help me out?

It's not a big deal, I'm considering putting them on a banner, but I'd like to know what it means, you know? I don't really want to put something up that will make anyone who speaks French do a spit-take. :D

Okay, so I'm trying to save some stories from Geocities, but they have these stupid and irritating symbols where punctuation should be (you know, crazy punctuation that's never used, like apostrophes. Yes, you did just feel the roll of my eyes across the vast gulf of the internet) -- Looks like this:

Am I being stupid and trying to copy & paste the text to a .doc or .txt file? Is there a way to do a search and replace for ...whatever the hell those are? Saving as a .txt removes the question mark symbol thingy, but doesn't put the correct punctuation in place, and I have more important things to do than go through pages and pages of fic typing in missing apostrophes and quotation marks. Copying the text directly to Word gets me the symbols, at least (which is slightly better than no punctuation at all) but Word has its own issues with formatting.

What am I missing? Or do I just suck it up and deal with funky symbols and learn yet another lesson on the pitfalls of procrastination?

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Has anyone seen Bueller?

Never mind! I figured it out. If anyone else is having this issue, it's a matter of changing the encoding that Firefox uses to view the websites. Go to View-->Character Encoding-->Western (Windows 1252) [Mine was set to Unicode, I think it's the default...whatever the case, Firefox and Geocities did not get along trying to talk to each other that way]

use only one word to sum up Buffy/Spike, what would it be?

(You can post more than one word, but each word must work on its own as a complete descriptor. Okay, short phrases might work, too.)

Please to help. This is for an idea I'm toying with, it may come to nothing, or it may be the coolest thing in the history of the universe (I might be overstating things). I'll be incredibly grateful for any help you can offer! :)

In other news, my car had a flat. Again. I wish I could win the lottery half as frequently as I get flat tires. It has an appointment at the car doctor for 1 o'clock. Keep your fingers crossed it just needs a cheap patch, and I don't need a whole new tire.
