mokie: A package of meat wishes you happy holidays (holiday of the day)
Of course I'm going to celebrate Ernie's birthday.

As a child, I was always partial to Ernie. He was funny and clever without being mean (or at least, intentionally so). He was chubby and had hair that defied gravity. He could be oblivious to social niceties. He lived with and shared a bedroom with his best friend and everyone was OK with it, and that looked to a preteen queer kid exactly like it looked to adult viewers, regardless of any official denials from the Children's Television Workshop. I love the ever-loving heck out of Ernie.

Also, I had an uncle named Ernie, so there was that.

About dream/reading tags

y-* tags categorize dreams.

For types: beyond the obvious, there are dreamlets (very short dreams), stubs (fragment/outline of a partially-lost dream), gnatter (residual impression of a lost dream).

For characters: there are roles (characters fitting an archetype), symbols (characters as symbols), and sigils (recurring figures with a significance bigger than a single dream's role/symbolism).

x-* tags categorize books.

Material is categorized primarily by structure, style and setting. If searching for a particular genre, look for the defining features of that genre, e.g. x-form:nonfic:bio, x-style:horror, x-setting:dystopian.
