At least, that's how I'm counting them.
1) I was introduced to another site which does fanfic reviews yesterday! The City of Doors posts irregularly, averaging 1-3 posts a week and reviews mostly MLP fanfiction, along with some original fiction and D&D-related material. The reviews are mostly concise, and balance observations and personal impressions. Personally, I found them very readable in their own right, and the page is definitely worth checking out. I've added it to the links page, but if you're looking for some reviews to tide you over until Friday, you should make a point to go see what Griffin has to offer.
2) Just a friendly reminder: if you didn't get an advent calendar in November like the punctual and forward-looking person you no doubt are, you can probably get for, like, half-off right now. Plus, you get to eat the first ten days worth of sweets all at once!
I'm not saying you have to celebrate Christmas, and certainly not that you have to do it with an advent calender. I'm just saying that any holiday tradition which revolves around waking up and immediately shoving a piece of chocolate into your mouth is one I can get behind.
3) I lost my fantasy football league again. I know, nobody cares, but I've got to vent to somebody.
4) Back on nominal blog topic, to wit, ponies: What's the deal with all the video reviews of episodes that have been popping up on Equestria Daily lately? I haven't ever watched one of these, so I'm really clueless as to the appeal here. Is this something that's this prevalent in other TV-based fandoms? Why are they all so long? Seriously, it seems like half are 8-12 minutes long, and the other half are longer than the episode they're analyzing (all numbers pulled straight from my nether regions, I admit, but that's my impression). Maybe some of these are really impressive or allow viewers to appreciate the show on a whole new level, but I'm thoroughly flummoxed by the way so many seem to have sprouted up.
