Fannish announcements:

* [livejournal.com profile] lgbtq_recs started posting yesterday with a rec by [livejournal.com profile] schemingreader, the graphic novel Marbles by Ellen Fourney. Follow the community for a queer- or trans-themed rec every weekday throughout June!

* [livejournal.com profile] minerva_fest is running again this year, hurrah! This fest starts with a period of anonymous prompting (from now until June 13) and then allows claiming throughout the summer (until September 1). Stories are then due September 15. Check out the prompting procedures here and the first two days of prompts here and here.

This is a bit random but I have a couple of householdy questions:

* Does anyone else have a garbage disposal in their kitchen sink? Do you have any suggestions on cleaning it? I'm embarrassed to ask because I really do try to keep things clean in the kitchen, but I'm not sure what to do to eliminate or reduce the lingering smell of food here.

* What's the deal with these new pods for the dishwasher? For years (well, the years we've had a dishwasher, at least) I've used power that comes in boxes or a gel, and suddenly last week when I had to restock the store had only these odd blister-packs that advertised "enzymes." I've never been particularly happy with the powder or gel options--I have a hard time finding options that don't contain bleach--but this sudden change of options is strange.
