crackfic and Mirror M*A*S*H  
I just tracked down and read janecarnall's fascinating Mirror M*A*S*H story, which I'd seen mentioned in ellen_fremedon's post, Slash shock, shamelessness, and a rec, which coined the term "Id Vortex", and also spawned a thread over on Making Light (Dec 5).

As ellen_fremedon said of Mirror M*A*S*H, "And it's THE MOST CRACKTASTIC THING EVAR, but... it works, in this supremely creepy sick-and-wrong immensely compelling way."

Heh. I liked it. I dance on the edge of the Id Vortex all the time. Last night I was trying to write up one my current fantasies (aka, the stories I tell only myself, my headcase la-la-la AUs, my private crackfic, my Dance of Dork), and I was like, "FACEPALM! How can I even think of posting this?" It was also hard to capture, nuance-wise, even in a bare-bones outline, but I may still try to finish and post it. Not sure yet.

This is one of those days that fandom makes me happy.

I am so bored today that I think I will. I need people to talk to me! I need to talk to people! Gyahhhhhh, the boredom of eternal work! I give you Roethke's "Dolor", which could use some updating for the technological age, but is still apt in feeling:

I have known the inexorable sadness of pencils,
Neat in their boxes, dolor of pad and paper weight,
All the misery of manilla folders and mucilage,
Desolation in immaculate public places,
Lonely reception room, lavatory, switchboard,
The unalterable pathos of basin and pitcher,
Ritual of multigraph, paper-clip, comma,
Endless duplication of lives and objects.
And I have seen dust from the walls of institutions,
Finer than flour, alive, more dangerous than silica,
Sift, almost invisible, through long afternoons of tedium,
Dropping a fine film on nails and delicate eyebrows,
Glazing the pale hair, the duplicate grey standard faces.

I am in awe....
