1. Finally decided to take control of my fandom fatigue and create a new sorta-secret Tumblr account. I have no idea yet how much I'll use it, but the idea is to create a sort of "filtered" dash of blogs that make me happy.  I will probably mostly be reblogging stuff there, but maybe I will work up the nerve to have an opinion under a name that isn't directly connected with me. :-P

2. BG's playdate yesterday afternoon was a success. He had so much fun having a friend over and can't wait to do it again. We have this huge house and big yard and tons of toys and a trampline and a swimming pool and a movie room, and basically could entertain kids for years. I really need to get off my anti-social introverted ass and invite people over more often.

3. I went to a neighborhood knitting meet-up yesterday, and actually had fun! Oh, and one of the women in the group is in the Sherlock fandom, whihc blew my mind! She is mostly active on Ravelry, and I didn't tell her my fandom identity, but still, it was cool to be able to talk to someone about fandom in that context. :-)

Meeting fellow fandomers is always a treat, especially a surprise meet. :)

It is! I don't want to freak her out if she isn't into the porn, though. :-P

I'm interested! Reading your dashboard would offer me a selection of what fandom does on Tumblr that's reasonably sensible!

It will be a weird mix of things I find interesting, but if you like I can email you the details. :-)

If you figure out how to do this, please share your secret with the world? Because I have the same damn problem. :(

It's SO EASY to just stay home and comfy and go through your day and not interact with anyone you don't have to. But I need to do better, for BG's sake. :-P

It is lovely to hear about your kid's playdate. I hate the stress of hosting playdates but it's such a triumph when the kids enjoy them.

They did have fun! Having a kid over here was pretty easy once I'd gone through the effort to ask the other mom. I'm actually much more stressed out about BG going to their house and being stubborn and willful to the extent that they don't invite him back. :-/

Your neighborhood knitting group sounds lovely. And, speaking as a Sherlock fan local to you (I was at your viewing party) I'm also in favor of you hosting social events. :D (I'd do it myself but my house does not yet have plumbing.)

Yes! I do need to have a get-together like that again. Oooh, maybe when the new DVD comes out I can have a viewing party for that? It would be fun to listen to the commentary with other fans.

Knitting and fandom talk in one go. Sounds like a lovely meeting.

A filtered dash in tumble is the best thing! I rarely see wank and drama, because I follow such nice people! Sometimes drama gets there anyway (if it is big enough) but always in a nicer reasonable POV which is better. There was one blog that I started to follow because of the nice art, but even though the person was ok most of the time, sometimes they let out some intolerant rant to different opinions. I try and share some positivity with the person,but it didn't work so I unfollowed. For me fandom is supposed to be about fun and sharing, I avoid hate (I try fight it with positivity some times,but its hard not be affected, so I mostly avoid it)
