OK - what's up with "feels?"

Cookiemom
Hi -

I'm getting involved in a new-to-me fandom and I've noticed something that is hitting me right in the grammar and spelling squick zone.

I'm not going to say it's universal, but it's certainly pervasive, that members of this fandom seem prone to using the word "feels" instead of the word "feelings" - not in fic (thank you fic Gods!), but all over posts and summaries.

What is UP with that? WHERE did it come from? And WHY?

Nails on a chalkboard, flist, NAILS on a CHALKBOARD.

Title: Tactile Rules of Engagement
Author: heeroluva
Reader: cookiemom6067
Fandom: Star Trek
Rating: PG
Pairing: Pre-slash Kirk/McCoy
Length: 18:05
Tactile Rules of Engagement
Download link: Sendspace

Summary: Kirk is thought of as a tactile person, but it's really that he learned in childhood how to use touch/proximity to intimidate or charm others into doing what he wanted. McCoy has a habit of giving him absent little signs of affection - a knee pressed up against his at dinner, an arm slung over his shoulders on the way home from a bar, a hand stroking his hair when he's sick. It makes him suspicious and he finally asks McCoy what the hell he wants with all this touching.

One Million Moms-How So Stupid?

Cookiemom
Quoting Washington Post article about Green Lantern's coming out:

"The One Million Moms website states: "Children desire to be just like superheroes. Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying. 'I want a boyfriend or husband like the X-men?"

I really don't think it's all that new a concept that little gay boys want that. So yeah, million idiots. I CAN IMAGINE THAT.

This gives me a fandom-specific giggle

Cookiemom
From Slate this morning:

The new Gallup poll numbers, which represent the five-day average of its daily surveys, show both Santorum and Gingrich knotted at 20 percent each.

In view of the incredible popularity of "knotting" fics in SPN fandom right now, this gave me an entirely fandom-specific giggle this morning. I wish they'd go knot each other and leave the rest of us alone...

Not that Mr. "Frothy Mix" is ever inclined to leave anyone alone - particularly women and LGBT people.

BLAAAAAAHHHHHHH

I have been so "not me" for a little more than a week. I'm slipping back into being depressed and it's a REAL up-hill battle to make myself do much of anything. Even reading fanfic online, something I really LIKE doing, is not that fun. I did get out of bed today. I did take a shower. I did make something for dinner for the family. Go me. woo hoo. I know that I need to move my playing piece off "start," so to speak. I feel like I have just a TON of "have to's" and "ought to's" and "should's" weighing me down, even though some of them are thing that I ACTUALLY WANT TO DO, just the fact that there's a "should" attached has me reacting with much less than sparkly enthusiasm. How have you overcome this yourself, if you're the sort of person that "shoulds all over (your)self?" I'm also feeling down because of how I look. I really have quite a lot of weight to lose. I feel lousy and I look worse. My son is getting married in May and I would really like to "lighten my load" before then. I have been on a lot of diet and exercise programs in my life, only to gain back (and more). I have had, up until a couple of years ago, a fairly stable (if still obese) weight. I know what I need to do (and HOW do I know!!!!), I just have no enthusiasm to do it! ARGH. My son and his fiancee are talking about moving out of state ultimately, and I don't begrudge these two liberal activist types from moving out of our decidedly ruby-red state (seriously, NO ONE bothers to campaign here), I hate the thought of not having them close. ("But, Sweetheart!!! If you're going to fight injustice, you have to be where the injustice is happening!!") Little birdies gotta fly, I know. Wow - this is pretty much "word salad" - sorry about that. LAME.
