Snagged from all over...

As was demonstrated in an interview with Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade.

The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic, to your lj. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.) For those who see this on your f-list, take the meme to your OWN lj to spread the fun.

FCC v. Pacifica - also known as George Carlin's "Seven Dirty Words" case. Discussed the difference between "indecent" and "obscene" according to the First Amendment, and granted the FCC broad power to determine what was indecent, and when to prohibit broadcast to protect children from exposure.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Aaaand... that's my four to start. I know I've missed a few people - if you have eggs, let me know your post so I can go click. :) Here's my user page over there:

But sure, what the hell... I'll play the meme.

Give me premises for three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return, I will attempt to write a drabble or a snippet of one of them.

Fandoms: Doctor Who; X-Files

Mind you, I probably will want to try going beyond a drabble, since I have an aversion to drabbles in general. :)

(looks worried)

They're doing some pipe work in our neighborhood, so our water's shut off. No laundry for me at the moment.

So instead, I'm doing the writing part of my day. For warm ups...

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

Fandom: Doctor Who (obviously)

I don't freeverse enough.  This felt pretty good.  Whether or not they make sense?  I dunno.  They do to me because I get what I was seeing/feeling.  I also haven't done drabbles before.  Maybe I should entertain the idea more often.  Does this break my concept of avoiding songfic, though?

Eh, if it does... I'll consider myself shamed and just go with it.

The weird thing is that I notice how I listen to music... I rarely listen to words (got stuck and did a double-take on one song... lyric stuck out, and I literally stopped writing and just laughed.  It broke the mood.   But I listen to the music, not the words, and work off THAT emotion, which is probably why some of these go a bit random from what the song is about.  And why #10 worked so damn well (it's such an incredibly sad piece of music to begin with).

#10 may be something I revisit, BTW.  A couple others have potential, too.  But #10 really just sticks out to me. 

Like... a lot.

Nothing here that's above a PG-13, for those who care about such ratings.  Other than a quick spellcheck, these are otherwise untouched, since I presume that's the intention of the meme.
