1. Figure out who I'm rooting for on MasterChef Australia now that Marion's been eliminated (probably Adam? though I don't know yet who got eliminated on Tuesday's episode)

2. Keep counting down the hours until tonight's Pretty Little Liars after last week's amazing (and very viddable!) cliffhanger

3. Find someone to talk me out of using "Like 4chan for girls" (source) as the title of my Symposium blog post on anon culture in fandom

3b. Figure out if I even have, like, a thesis or a point or anything useful to say for said blog post

4. OMG only 6 more hours until Pretty Little Liars! (Hint: that's enough time to catch up on the first six episodes if you haven't been watching)

Life flash before your eyes, indeed.

If you are in need of a pithy quote for a title, I recommend any of the golden nuggets to be gleaned from the anon meme itself. I've been copypastaing various as they befall my eyeballs, and I offer you:

"I find the fandom penchant for controlling, boundary-crossing families (see: Mitchell Clan) completely baffling."
Response: "Probably because fandom itself wants to be a controlling, boundary-crossing family."

"People seem to forget that sometimes they should feel ashamed of themselves." (This is from F_W, the Vividcon Bingo Wank, not the anon meme.)

That's an excellent suggestion!

My best subject line for an LJ post was lifted directly from the LA Times article I linked to -- "I, seriously, was like the Lindsay Lohan of scrapbooking."

My subject lines have been going downhill ever since.
