My good LJ deed for the day

Since 2004, I've been a fan of Alabama smartass cleolinda. I got hooked via her parodies of Van Helsing and the third Harry Potter film and especially Troy, joined her community Movies in Fifteen Minutes, eventually started reading her LJ regularly, and now...

...I've ordered her book.

Back in 2004, a British publisher liked Cleolinda's m15m work enough to offer her a book deal, and the result was Movies In Fifteen Minutes: The Ten Biggest Movies Ever For People Who Can't Be Bothered. Eventually there will be another parody book, and sometime there should be a U.S. publication of the first book, but more-than-idle searching at Powells Dot Com showed that I could order a copy through them (shipped from a British warehouse, so it'll take 2 to 4 weeks to get here). So I have. I've finally set up an account at Powell's; and also finally I'm starting to use the gift card my folks gave me at Christmas! And it goes to support someone I know purely because of LiveJournal.

Yeah; I like this place.
