deannie: (Excuse me)
So, in looking for information on men's underwear in the 1870s...

What?

Anyway, I came across this article from Cracked called 5 Ridiculous Myths Everyone Believes About the Wild West. My heart is crushed. Truly. Are you telling me that Chris likely couldn't have hit the broad side of a barn with his six shooter! And people probably weren't trying to rob the bank every other day!? 

I weep. And I again cry "genre!" on you. Yes, the reality of the old west was boring. The reality of the new west is boring, too. So is the day to day work of most doctors (Seriously, it's not Chicago Med 95% of the time. Sorry.), and that of many police officers (ditto Chicago P.D.). But do I write or read to experience real life? Not so much. 

So fie on you, Cracked Magazine! Fie! 

(Although if people want to write "Real Wild West" stories of the guys sitting around doing almost nothing...)

So many things in this life are Randi's fault. Like this meme...

[personal profile] randi2204  gave me Sam Carter, Dana Scully, and Mary Travis. Which is a difficult trio. But I shall endeavor to shag, marry, or push off a cliff each one of them.

The rules:

- Post on your LJ/DW and tell us which one you would
shag, which one you would marry, and which one you would push off a cliff.

Please feel free to splain your choices!

- Invite others to do the same!

So here we go.

Shag:
Um... I'd have to say Dana Scully. First season Scully because she was her most attractive and interesting then. I think it would start out a timid, careful introduction, but once we got going, she'd finally let loose, and that'd be fun. I wouldn't want to be saddled with her for too long, though. She's all baggage-y!

Marry: Sam Carter. Definitely. Despite her many faults, I have a habit of spending my life with someone who will talk brainy to me. Among her other duties :).

Off the cliff she goes! Mary Travis. Sadly, it's not the fate she deserves, but there's a gun to my metaphorical head, so... Goodbye hot, smart, independent, intelligent woman of the old west! I shall miss you. (There's totally not a cloaked hatak waiting to whisk you away mid-fall, by the way. My metaphorical wife, the aforementioned Sam Carter isn't attracted to brainy independent women, either. Really.)

That was fun! COMMENT AND I WILL GIVE YOU A TRIO OF YOUR OWN!

(Someone suggest others for me, too! I will put on a straight woman hat if you give me men, I promise!)
