I was always disappointed that I could never come up with a good SSW blurb for any of my fics.

(This was many, many years ago when I was under the belief that a fic wasn't really great unless it had a SSW blurb).

Sick Sad World ep...that's still on my list of things I want to write. Alas, with the Weekly World News out of circulation, I don't know what would inspire me - everything is too celeb-focused for me to get really awesome weird stuff from tabloids nowadays.
