It's that time of year again! What time, you say? Why, time for christycorr's head to explode as she tries to organize the UnknowableRoom Hourglass Awards! Yaaaay! The Hourglass Awards are simply an annual awards ... ...thing that gives sparkly (well, not really) banners by bluebellflames to people who write HP fanfiction that appeases the judges. Fun stuff, yes? CLEARLY I MAKE IT SOUND IRRESISTABLE.
Presently, the Hourglass Awards are looking for nominations, which can be sent in here. You do need an account at UR.org to post a nomination, but if you don't have one, it's really quite easy to join. If you reaaaally can't be bothered but do think a fic ought to be nominated, you can leave me the URL, title & author in a comment and I'll nominate it for you. Because I am awesome.
Categories include Romance (Het), Romance (Slash), Drama, Angst, Drabble or Drabble Collection, AU, Gen, Comedy/Parody and NC-17. The already-nominated fics are listed just below the nomination form that I've already linked you to fifty times. Nominations run until the end of March, and then the judges get to start pulling their hair out. Yay!
In other news, I come bearing fic. Finally! I accomplished very little this weekend

And in other-other news, we have an assload of snow. We got 50 cms (1'8") this weekend.
This is our back deck:
Our front yard:
Let's go swinging!
ETA: I hate snow so much I decided to change my layout. _thirty2flavors I am sort of enjoying this one, except a few things bother me (like having links on the side, and the really cluttered comment line). If anyone knows places to get pretty layouts for free/plus accounts, hook me up? Most of the pre-made lj ones are comically hideous.
