So many things going on right now, both online and off. RL is a bit tense sometimes (and not just a bit of a mess), so I won't get into it. I'd rather take my mind off it. So on that note, I shall ramble.

New Tokio Hotel Single
I love this. The sound reminds me a bit of 90s retro. It's on the "Best Of" german deluxe album.


ETA: And while we're on the subject, the Kaulitz twins did an ad for PETA (the photos were done to bring notice to the subject of cruelty to animals in captivity, though I'll freely admit seeing these two in chains just makes my muse cackle with glee)...


New Fandom Minion
My mother, bless her heart, has become a bit addicted to digital stories of the fan fiction variety. She's a fanatic of the written word, in general. However, lately her interests have taken a turn. I've been sharing with her my thoughts on funny or interesting stories I've read. Got her started out on some Harry Potter, then ventured into crossovers.

She's now discovered her favorite fandom: NCIS.

Not sure how that happened, and just a bit boggled by it. But there you have it. She loves Mark Harmon's character Gibbs.

NanoWrimo
I'm ridiculously behind on my word count. My health got in the way big time. But I've got a really good outline, ideas coming out my ears, and determination. So I'll get it finished, even if it does carry me over beyond November. I'm excited about my first ever writing adventure beyond the scope of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer fandom. So it shall be written. Someday.

Thanksgiving Snow
We gots snow, and lots of it. And it's freakin' cold! My mom and I got sick of the traditional faire for our Thanksgiving Meal, so with the exception of the Turkey we're cooking all new recipes this year. I'll do another post on that a bit later with links to the recipes. But we're doing Pumpkin Dessert squares instead of pie, pull-apart cornmeal rolls instead of crescent rolls, mashed sweet potatoes with toasted pecans, citrus and cranberry salad, and apple bacon stuffing muffins. I'm really excited to try them all out!

Ooh! And for breakfast that day I'm making breakfast migas, which is done in the slow cooker overnight. Yummy!

***

That's all for now folks. If I don't hear from you again until after the holidays, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

STAY WARM!!!

Woo!

Saying Happy Birthday to LJ, a day late. I've been a bit behind lately due to RL. Taking a break from the current hoopla going on with Tokio Hotel to share with you my first TWO posts (since the first one was so short). Bringing you back to August of 2003:
21 August 2003 @ 01:16 pm
Thanks to Kristen ([livejournal.com profile] miggy)for her post that helped me to get started. Once I get a hang of all this, I suppose I'll try customizing the look of the journal. You can expect to see my ramblings here. If I've finished a story, but have yet to post it, you'll see it here. Links to my sites will be added if there's something of interest to see there when I update. More on this later...


21 August 2003 @ 05:16 pm
I finally wrote (and posted) my first fan fiction. This was actually inspired by another story I read (when I find a link for it I'll post it). I got to thinking what would Spike and Xander have in their junk drawer?

( Read more... )

Why yes, that is my very first fanfic, why do you ask? LOL - Still love that one. Big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kyrieane and [livejournal.com profile] txrabbit (at least I think it was them) who badgered me into writing it, and also pushed me towards wanting to get this whole LJ started in the first place. Also to [livejournal.com profile] miggy who gave me the leg up.

Getting ready to go out and see a movie with new friends. Monsters and Aliens or something. Sounds cute.

Hope everyone's doing well, and that you're weekend will be a good one!

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] cordykitten

1) Why do you read fanfic?
An excellent question. Part of my answer relates to the second question, but it started out to answer questions. I saw ideas and questions come up in shows I was watching, and explored the answers through other's writing. These days, it's more of an escape. Same reason I read any other book. For entertainment value. There's still that part of me that will read to answer questions, but I find the answers come from the hive mind of fandom and I don't have to actively search them out much these days.

Cut for length. Click for the rest. )

saifai: (TH Xmas Bill (official us fanclub))
This happens every year. [livejournal.com profile] lazuli_kat crooks her finger and I come running. Yes, it's time for the Annual Spander Christmas thingy (The 2008 Spander Illuminations).

I write my Buffy story this year, with Spike and Xander of course, to the tune of... well, Xander. For forever it seems I've had this idea stuck in my head that some things never go as planned when it comes to Xander. When do they ever? But this time it was something serious. Remember that episode Go Fish from way back in Season 2?

This is my take on how things really went.

Read it. [livejournal.com profile] txrabbit beta'd for me. I'm quite certain I couldn't have gotten as much out of it without her. *gloms*

I know I've been promising a list of story recs for forever now. I've finally compiled one, though admittedly it was in an effort to bring a friend of mine to the dark side as it were. She's come to like the stories involving Severus and Harry, and this list was an effort to expand her horizons a bit.

She will only read completed stories, so this list is only those stories that are complete. The list is sorted by site.

Yes, folks, I wrote fic.  Please, hold the gasps of shock on this most momentous of occasions.  LOL  Follow the link to it's home at Laz's site to read more.

Sunday Funnies
Since it's Sunday and all, here's a funny story to cheer up your day about a Pastor and a kitten.

The Pastor's Kitten )

Christmas Muses
In other news, my muses have made a surprise visit and I'm writing a Christmas Cracker story for  [livejournal.com profile] lazuli_kat's 12 10 days of Spander Christmas.  My day is the 23rd, so I'll post links to it when I'm done.

Health News
That whole thing with the allergic reaction to my meds continued when I discovered the pain I had from the event were actually muscle spasms.  All my muscles from the waist up to the top of my head was sore and sensitive for the better part of a week and a half.  I was stuck eating soft foods for about three or four days because my jaw and throat muscles were so stiff.  I'm much better now, and only vague sensitivity to those areas remains.

Let the festivities begin!!!
I went to the women's Christmas Dinner at church the other night and came back filled with Christmas Spirt.  Damnit.  So, I'm wrapping presents (damn you Fuzzywigs for not including the tag to the Webkinz I bought my nephew and making me go back to beg for it today), baking (back to the store to get the spray oil that doesn't include garlic... "Why do I keep smelling garlic on the banana bread?"), and decorating a bit (still looking for the baby jesus for my nativity).

Bah Humbug
I told my mother just now what I was writing.  She seemed to think that nobody would believe me that I had Christmas Spirit if I was snarking the whole time about what went wrong so far.  LOL - she just may have a point there.

Hope everyone's holidays are going well so far.  *big smooshy hugs all around*

I don't know why I got to thinking about this today.  I've been lazing around today, doing chores here and there, running errands and the like.  But still I find myself thinking about the past.  It has no reflection on today, except that it's still something I think about now and then.

Oddly enough, I don't think it's something I've ever talked about in my journal.

The day the earth stood still... )

There's really no point in sharing this other than to implore everyone out there to think twice before you say something.  You may mean it in the heart of the moment, but could you live with the consequences?

I never told this person any of this before.  I'm not sure I ever will.  It's not for them to know.  It's something just for me to deal with now.

If you'll excuse me, I need some chocolate.
