Hey dude, it's been a while! I remember we used to chat a lot so it would be cool to catch up a little. :) Posted 7 days ago

I still come to Fanpop, though less and less as the main reason I joined, the PoM fandom, has largely dried up. A consequence of time that even Kowalski would have trouble stopping. After nearly eight years(!) of writing PoM fanfics, I officially decided in the spring that the one I was working on would be the last one I would write for the fandom. That story, "Off the Shelf," was published in June. The two-chapter story is about what happens when Skipper and Marlene are mistaken for stuffed animals at the Zoovenir shop. 1 day ago

While I'm retired from PoM writing, I haven't quit writing fan fiction. Last year I watched the movie Zootopia, which I enjoyed so much I started writing some shorts a week later. In August and September 2016, I published a collection of eight (very) short stories under the title "Zootopia Scenes and Shorts." Since then I have written (but have not yet published) a few more shorts, and I am currently working, slowly, on something I hope will be a longer story of several thousand words. 1 day ago

In politics, there was a big election last year. Me being the hardcore conservative, Ted Cruz was the candidate I supported in the Republican primary. After Donald Trump won the nomination, I had a lot of mixed feelings because of his lack of firm ideology, though I was never one of those people who screamed, "#NeverTrump!" In the end, I voted for Trump, whom I gave only a 15 percent chance of winning. That was an interesting night and early morning! As for his time in office, it's been a mixed bag so far. I admit that I like that Democrats can't stand him, but I wish there were more accomplishments. Actions speak louder than words and breaches of decorum. More Gorsuch and less retweeting memes, please. 1 day ago
PoM-related random thoughts dump:

* In a special Comic-Con panel in 2011, King Julien made a call on his "MePhone." But Julien isn't the only one with a MePhone. There is a mobile service called MePhone in the "Sherlock" series.

* I will eat a bag of tortilla chips that says "produced with genetic engineering" and not care. I would not, however, eat a bag of Cheezy Dibbles if Kowalski messed with it. We all have our limits.

* Julien must love memes because the word "me" is in it twice. Posted 12 days ago

* The song Alice sings in "Tangled in the Web" when she inadvertently wins the Internet popularity contest reminds me a little of Michael Jackson's "Bad." Specifically, the sound of Alice's "On the jungle scene / He is the funk machine / When they play that groove / He has got to move" sounds a bit similar to when Jackson sings, "Your butt is mine / Gonna tell you right / Just show your face / In broad daylight." 12 days ago

* Kid Walla, voiced by Tara Strong, may not be one specific kid but rather the group of kids in "Sting Operation." Wikipedia says the term "walla" means "a sound effect imitating the murmur of a crowd in the background." 12 days ago

* "Madagascar 2" is mentioned briefly in this funny video, "Sherlock Holmes Sucks at Deduction" (link 12 days ago

* In addition to having a female-dominant social system, real ring-tailed lemurs are also active only during daylight hours (so no all-night dance parties). 12 days ago
* Saw "Hello, Dollface" recently. I wonder why Miss Perky's manufacturer chose to advertise on Shirtless Ninja Action Theater. Are there many viewers besides Rico who are into both dolls and shirtless ninjas?

* After nearly eight years of writing PoM fanfics, I have decided to hang up my hat writing for the fandom. My 21st and final PoM story, Off the Shelf, I published in June on FanFiction.net, DA, and AO3. It is now available on Fanpop too, published today (July 1). Posted 2 months ago

* I am slowly reviewing old notes of fandom things I had once thought about doing/contributing, to decide which things may still be worth adding to Fanpop and other places. However, anything old that is not done by the end of the year I will probably never do. The fandom is so small now, a consequence of time that even Kowalski would have trouble stopping. 2 months ago

peacebaby7 gave me props for my articles
I haven't given you a prop in forever and since I dropped by fanpop for a few minutes, I decided to give you one.

This one's for all the wonderful PoM fics and the hard work you put into them. You made a substantial contribution to the fandom and I'm sure all fanguins former and current appreciate your efforts. Here's to a new chapter in your FanFiction career! Posted 2 months ago

Thanks for the prop! And thanks for reading my stories over the years. Thanks also to the penguins for making this all possible. I'm grateful for the opportunity I've had to contribute to our community, and I won't forget it. 🐧 2 months ago

You're welcome! I look forward to seeing what you do next. Good luck, although I'm sure you'll do fine without it. :) How did you do the cute animal emoji, anyway? Or did you reply on mobile? Just curious. 2 months ago

The penguin I originally copied from desktop Twitter. I've found that many other places, like Fanpop, will support the symbol. 2 months ago

Oh cool. Too bad I don't have a Twitter. Anyway, see you next story! 2 months ago

Someday America will have female presidents. But we should thank God every day that Hillary Clinton won't be the first. We really dodged a bullet on Tuesday.

Donald Trump hasn't been a reliable conservative all his life. I voted for him (I only vote Republican), but I've often had mixed feelings about him. But as the man who beat Crooked Hillary in the biggest presidential election upset since "Dewey Defeats Truman," he at least deserves a clean slate . . . Posted 10 months ago

I'm embarrassed to be an American when people think that Trump, who held an "LGBTs for Trump" flag at a rally and who got more of the black and Hispanic vote than Romney in 2012, is no better than a Klansman or the next Hitler. I'm sure Trump owns sheets and hoods, but they are on his beds and on his limos. He is not going to do 99 percent of what people fear he will do, and the other 1 percent (building a wall, deporting criminals, etc.) is good policy that is about enforcing laws, not racism. 10 months ago
