One of the things I love about White Collar is that it gets better all the time. And by better I mean gayer. For example, take a look at this photo by peterburke- on tumblr:

[personal profile] thatneedslube: Uh, how gay is this on a scale of gayness?
[personal profile] stopitsomemore: Pretty much like unicorns fucking rainbows.
[personal profile] thatneedslube: Yeah, that's what I thought, too.

Never change, Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay. We love you so much.

You know, just to keep James Bond honest.

In case you are not in Russia, enjoying a two-day break, or keenly aware of all vagina-related holidays, today is International Women's Day 2011, and what better way to celebrate than to have M -- voiced by the absolutely marvelous Judy Dench -- making Daniel Craig get dressed in drag?

The voiceover, in addition to being sad and sometimes sobering, is also pretty fucking funny, not just because M, in a few short sentences, indicates Bond is (a) overpaid, (b) a slag, and (c) probably had sown illegitimate children to all and sundry. It's pretty fantastic.

And also let it be said on this day, the 8th of March -- James Bond can rock himself some three-inch heels, guys.

P.S. Of course we already had a crossdressing tag. Of COURSE we did.

So this just happened:

Quick background for anybody unfamiliar with Sweet Charity, it's a fandom charitable auction. People offer to write stories, make art, create vids, buyers bid, and the proceeds go to a charity, usually RAINN. (See subject line for awkwardness.)

With any sort of activity like this, there are the inevitable defaults and disappointments, and usually Sweet Charity will ask for pinch hitters. Having enjoyed the fruits of the project and been very fond of its ultimate cause for years, I've watched the whole thing go down without any idea that just beneath its veneer of candy sweet cooperation, creative energy and fannish engagement for the greater good was barely concealed disappointment and sad faces.

Obviously, it's shitty to bid for something, pay money for it, and never see the results, but come on. Seriously? There has to have been a better way to handle this right? Even if you're upset -- which is entirely understandable -- is posting to Sweet Charity's lj community in what can only be described as an exceedingly petty way the best method of resolution?

I'm curious now that I see this uncomfortable flip side to the charity auction trend. Have you ever bought something and never seen it come to fruition? How do you deal with that sort of thing? Either way -- sound off.
