ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

You are absolutely brilliant. You are the smartest person you know. You have an odd beauty about you in that your are attractive, but look like you should be a child. You are very serious about most things, but have a hidden playful side. You like to help out wherever possible but usually like to be the one to figure out the solution to every problem. Your taste in clothing is questionable, but you do have an outfit for every possible occasion. You will end up marrying a travel companion, completely hate them, and inherit a title of nobility.

Anyone have any book recommendations for boys ages 12 and 14?  I am finishing up Christmas shopping for my cousins, and would greatly appreciate any suggestions.  Thanks!

Snagged from zombres, because the appeal of a Nine/Rose drabble was too much for me to resist:

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing (and a prompt, please). In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (If you absolutely can't write, maybe find a creative alternative?)

Free drabbles - get 'em while they're hot!

Fun fact #1 - Elephants are my favorite animal.  (seriously, other little girls wanted ponies...I'd have picked a baby elephant any day)

Fun fact #2 - This week's challenge over at [info]then_theres_us is to write a prequel, sequel, or companion piece (with a different POV) for one of our existing fics over at the comm. 

I love this challenge...but at the moment, have no idea which existing fic to use.  I would welcome your input, dear flist. 

And to make it easy, here's a list of links to my fics in the comm:
