HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO TWO OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE - [livejournal.com profile] eckerlilas and [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature!

[livejournal.com profile] eckerlilas - be sure your adorable kiddos give you extra snuggles today! I hope you have a fabulous birthday and I hope to see you SOMETIME, lol. Silly Texas is too far away from me! ♥

[livejournal.com profile] strangecreature - you are so adorable and funny and I love that we're friends. I know that even with this speedbump that was just thrown in your path, you're going to do something FANTASTIC. I hope you have an excellent birthday and that your day is filled with little things to make you smile! ♥

[livejournal.com profile] kerrikins made an awesome post that yall should all take a look at: DDoS Attacks Round Up

And [livejournal.com profile] rhombal wrote an article for Red Card Homophobia that yall can find/read here: Blame it All on an Uneven Pitch: Thoughts About Sexism and Homophobia in Football. It's an excellent read, even if you aren't into football (I'm admittedly not; I usually just shake my head fondly when [livejournal.com profile] rhombal and [livejournal.com profile] exsequar start going on about it, lol), and [livejournal.com profile] rhombal deserves praise for it. :)

And my friend Sean has a movie up on Amazon Studios. I'm not sure what that's all about, but basically all you need to watch the movie and leave a review is an amazon account, which is something I know most of us have. So, if you've got some time on your hands, go give it a shot and leave a review and let me know what you think? (I haven't watched yet. I'm waiting for the tstorms to pass so I can plug my laptop back in before I actually watch something on it.)


A man whose family was massacred by vampires as a boy, sets out with his companions to chase a pack of the undead, looking for answers and revenge. But the way to Romania is guarded by many evils other than vampires.

Also, I have the best team of cheerleaders and the most awesome beta in the entire world. I really should get my ass in gear and actually post fic one of these days.

So, today is [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow's birthday. In my usual fashion, her birthday card is sitting here at the house. I am the definition of fail sometimes, lol. But I do love you and your stupid face, StevieWay, and I hope your day is filled with hugs and happy and music and chocolate cake! *mwah*

My friends are the BEST friends!

Except for [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane, who somehow has the world conspiring against me when it comes to Jesse Eisenberg. She is evil. The kind of evil that teaches her GSA students to make friendship bracelets, but still. EVIL.

The boys lost their last basketball game tonight. It was the first game of the championship playoffs, and they played their hardest, even though monkeyface was injured (my kid, yall, is such an idjit), and lost 19 to 16 in the last quarter. They were all so disappointed, but it was a great season and they learned a lot about teamwork and sportsmanship, which is important, especially at that age.

Just in case anyone here doesn't know and is interested, I'm tabbycat6380 on facebook and twitter and tumblr. And pretty much everywhere else on the internet. I still haven't figured out tumblr, other than there are pictures there, lol. Facebook is for posting pics of the kids and random song lyrics as status updates to confuse people. Also, I play farmville (or, usually, monkeyface plays farmville on my facebook as well as his own and his brother's). But feel free to friend me in any/all of the above mentioned places.
why_me_why_not: (exclamation points)

Favorite authors posting fic is always A++, so let's start there:

Shelter by [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique
Shelter || 2800 words || Porn with a dash of sexual orientation questioning || Title comes from the movie this is loosely intended to be a prequel to- see it. Surf dudes having feelings and sex, what more could you want? Seeing the movie is massively unnecessary for reading, though, it's intended to stand entirely on its own.

Memoirs: Epilogue also by [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique
Porn || Features fluff and warm fuzzy feelings.
(goes along with The Curious Case Of The Firecrotch: This Is Why We Don't Write Our Memoirs While Drunk, Ben., which [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique wrote with [livejournal.com profile] apiphile)

And [livejournal.com profile] apiphile has ruined me for Inception. I still haven't seen the movie (yes, I do live under a rock, I think this has previously been established), but Del mentioned earlier that I'm probably going to be disappointed that the movie is not actually wall-to-wall porn. SHE WOULD NOT BE WRONG!

Summer by [livejournal.com profile] apiphile
Inception || 3,100 words || Ariadne/Eames

And speaking of fandoms I'm not in, [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane wrote Jesse Eisenberg/Andrew Garfield fic. I'm not in TSN RPF fandom! I barely know who Andrew Garfield is!! But this fic is adorable and hysterical and I love it SO MUCH and her Justin is quite possibly my favorite thing about the fic, except that the entire thing is my favorite. (“What you need to do,” said Justin, totally ignoring him, “is send him a naked picture of yourself. That’s how this shit works. I saw it on To Catch A Predator.”)

Don't Carry It All by [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane
25,000 words of Jesse/Andrew awkwardnes goodness, with a healthy dose of Justin.
It started because Justin decided to set up a dating profile for Jesse against his will.

Also on my flist this week, this awesomely happy-making multi-fandom picspam from [livejournal.com profile] sonicbookmark (who I adore and am going to kidnap so we can run away and get married), several awesome recaps from LA CON from [livejournal.com profile] wendy (complete with pictures!), PatD concert and m&g recaps from [livejournal.com profile] sunsetmog, pictures from [livejournal.com profile] pecos's Asia Adventures, and lots of flailing about Discos and PStump and MF'ing EMPIRES (yall have all gone to vote for them, right?)!

This is totally a happy week!!

1. I have the BEST friends. Srsly, I don't think I could ever adequately express how much yall mean to me.

2. Yall remember when I was working at the warehouse and injured my back and spent two weeks at home unable to do anything but lay on my tummy and watch tv and read all the porn on the internet? So that injury is acting up. Idek what I did this time! I mean, my dad made a platform for our chest freezer and I did carry it into the house by myself, and it was kinda heavy and awkward, but that was early yesterday morning and I felt fine til last night when I was laying around watching SyFy disaster movies. Idk, but it hurts to walk or move or breathe wrong. Coughing, sneezing, and laughing are all out of the question too. I seriously wanna CRY, the back spasms hurt do bad. And when I think like that, I obviously feel like a huge pussy, b/c wtf, it's just a little back pain. Also, this chair is really fucking uncomfortable.

3. These people are here are fucking idiots. Why ask me a question if you're gonna disregard my (correct) answer and just do the wrong thing anyway? Fucktards.

4. My aunt has claimed my dad as a dependent for the last two years but can't this year. Technically I can, b/c he used my address all year (he doesn't actually "live" anywhere), he doesn't officially work, and I paid all his medical bills this year as well as kept him supplied in beer, cigarettes, and groceries. But it doesn't do me any good to claim him. Since Mom & I share a household, can she claim him, even though they're ex-spouses? (Fucking tax time, I wish they'd just automatically send me my refund and that no one would ask me to do their taxes for them.)

5. It's not 630 yet. Whyyyyyyyyy????
why_me_why_not: (Default)
It's a good thing I don't actually have any authority at work, b/c I fired EVERYONE today. Fuckers. I mean, really, how hard is it to DO YOUR FUCKING JOB? Too hard, apparently, idek. *sigh* Also, tomorrow we're releasing info on a new program we're offering, but none of us have access to the website where we can look up the details of the benefits. That's some awesome planning on the part of our company, huh?

I have all my holiday cards (check this post) ready to go. Not because I'm an overachiever, but because I'd like to get them mailed off before the move on Friday. My holiday packages for my soldiers will go out at the end of next week. Just fyi, if you send me something for the holidays, you can use my current address. If you need it, let me know. I'll give yall my new address after the holidays.

Tomorrow is someone special's birthday! Two Three special someones! [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart, [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, and [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000's sister! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Um, there was something else I was gonna say, but I'm gonna go crawl in bed with my heating pad. I can barely move today, my back hurts so much. I really don't wanna think about how I'm going to feel on Sunday...

Can yall do me a favor? Check out this post from [livejournal.com profile] pecos and go leave something happy and cheerful for her brother? Please and thank you!

Dear Flist,

You are delicious. I love you.

Love, Tabby
why_me_why_not: (reeses heart)
Get in my belly, cheeseballs get in there!

Yeah, we're watching the Squeakquel again.

For a Monday, today wasn't so bad. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 for the concert calls last night, to [livejournal.com profile] wordsalone for being an enabler, and [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane for the schmoopy sweet fic in my inbox. I know I say it a lot, but it bears repeating: my friends are the best friends!

True Blood is like a trainwreck. It's so not good, but I can't stop watching! I wanna know what happens next! And I accidentally watched like 8 episodes last night. Oops? (It's even more funny to me because I don't even like the story! I didn't get past the first couple chapters of the first book!)

I think Andrew may be getting fired tomorrow. :( I'm gonna miss his stupid ass.

Wednesday is Robbie's bday, yay! I gotta make cupcakes (two batches - one just for him & one to share). He's lucky I like him. Jerkass.

I miss Amy. She's supposed to come up for Labor Day, and I'm gonna go down there next month so she and I can drag Cliff to see Drive A, but still. I miss her!

I went out Friday night to meet Anfernie & his bf at a drag show, and saw way more of him than I ever wanted to see. Fucking Heather; it was all her fault even though she wasn't even there. Anfernie (who was actually Dallys on Friday night) and my friend Holly comparing their fake boobs was pretty hilarious though. Holly has lopsided tatas and so she has inserts for the right side of her bra. They freak Jessie out. Holly abuses that fact. Also, I have so missed hanging out with Jessie & Holly. And the rest of the RMG crew, of course. I don't miss the job at all (okay, that's a lie, as much as I hated it, sometimes I miss the physical labor and actually being able to do my fucking job) but I miss some of the people. And apparently I'm missing Jon's midlife crisis. Jessie's keeping me in the loop by txtng me pictures, lol, but it's not the same.

Other things to love today:

♥ BABY NEVILLE! Tomorrow is Pam's 37 weeks mark so he can come ANY DAY NOW!

[livejournal.com profile] apiphile

♥ FOB Cobra

♥ the boys from Drive A


♥ twitter (it is an endless source of amusement)

♥ Leverage, Psych, and Royal Pains (keeping me entertained until the fall season of other shows)

p.s. I may be a little in love with James Ransone. Okay, that's a lie. I'm totally in love with him. Who can I blame this on?
why_me_why_not: (happy birthday)
Hey, do you know what today is?

IT'S [livejournal.com profile] wordsindreams'S BIRTHDAY!!

Happy Birthday, Alli! Ilu! ♥
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Hey, yall know what I was thinking earlier? You know how you say someone is awesome and you just wanna stick them in your pocket and take them home with you? Well, I DO THAT EVERY DAY WITH YALL! Seriously, I can carry around my entire flist in my pocket, thanks to the wonder of the intrawebs and crackberry. HOW AWESOME IS THAT????

Real purpose of this post:

Out of sync at the beginning
by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 & [livejournal.com profile] why_me_why_not
Generation Kill || Brad/Nate || Adult || ~3300 words

Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction based on the portrayal of characters in Generation Kill by Alexander Skarsgard and Stark Sands, and is meant to imply nothing about the real people who bear these names.

Summary: When Ray tells Nate to fix whatever's between him and Brad, Nate has to figure out if Ray's fucking with him, and if not, how to get Brad where he wants him.

A/N So, we accidentally created a 'verse based on a random comment. Isn't that the way it always seems to go with us? Oh well, at least it's fun. This is the beginning of... something. Originally written mostly in txtfic. We beta'd it ourselves, so hit us up with any mistakes. Title paraphrased from The National's Slow Show.

Nate knows something’s Not Right when he gets home, but he’s certain he can defend himself against whatever it is that’s causing the uneasy feeling.
why_me_why_not: (heart cup)
In case you missed it on Twitter, I finished a fic!! It's not something I actually meant to write (yall know how I am about accidentally writing things, lol) and it's not something I plan on posting, but it is finished and it's the first thing I've finished in a long long time, so it's kinda exciting. :)

A couple days ago, I asked some of you for things to include in my happy list. I've mixed them up, but here are some things that made me and my friends happy this week:

why_me_why_not: (Default)
Belated thanks to all of you for your birthday wishes and for the well-wishes about my accident. I had a fantastic birthday and a fantastic weekend. I got checked out by a doctor when I got home, complete with a ct scan, and my brain isn't any more damaged than it was to begin with and the black eyes should go away soon even though the concussion symptoms will probably hang out for a while.

[livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 finally managed to get me to watch Generation Kill and I LOVE IT. Apparently I have a new fandom.

I am soooooo tired, omg.

Mat Devine was tweeting about hanging out with Mikey Way, and I'm reminded of [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique lamenting the lack of Kill Hannah fanfic in bandom. What's up with that nonsense??

I love Gabe Saporta, and the Cobras, and Travie. And I love Travie's new album, which came out today.

Dragonsoul came out today also, but I can't get it until Friday. But yay for Jaida and Dani's new book!

I basically deleted everything in my inbox, so I'm not going to catch up on LJ, comments or posts. If I missed something important, tell me here. Starting over with a clean slate for Wednesday and going to try and keep up this time.

I can't remember if there is anything else I wanted to say, but I love you all and miss hanging out on LJ and hope things will level out soon. *hearts*
why_me_why_not: (Default)
So, we're only three days into the month and I already fail at the attempt to post something every day. Ugh.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [livejournal.com profile] incapricious! Love you, sweetheart! (and if I'm quick, I'll actually get this posted while it's still your birthday here on the east coast, lol!)

I'm full of whine today, srsly, so I'll spare yall. My current happy place is Johnny Weir, so I'll spare yall that as well, since I'm sure the only people that want to hear about him are already involved in the email chain. (and yes, I know that I owe you story! But I have to get caught up on LJ first!)

30 days til I go to Texas! YAY!!

Um, what else...

I saw this tweet from Jepha last week and immediately thought of body swap. Yeah, idek.

I had a dream last night that me and [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie and [livejournal.com profile] wordsindreams ran in to Brian Schechter and he bought us ice cream. I have no idea how Alli got involved in that scenario.

Did I tell yall that Pam and Jay found out they're having a boy? They wanna name him Neville. :) (they were gonna name him Seamus, but Mom made them change their minds.)

My cousin... Alex? Maybe Spencer? I don't think it was Ryan, but it was one of the three. Anyway, they started this silly little thing on facebook, and I figured I'd share it here as well b/c it's a sweet idea, and I know several of us have done something like it before.

Sooooooo jealous of the SXSW peoples tonight, but I do have two voicemails from [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 and a picture of a tambourine. :)

[livejournal.com profile] lurkitty posted a link to this article about employers using gaming to motivate their staff. I kinda like this idea!

[livejournal.com profile] stratospherique and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile have totally made my day with this. (and part two)

and last, but most definitely NOT least! ...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow!!! I love you, bb! <33333

Happiest of Birthdays to [livejournal.com profile] wordsalone and [livejournal.com profile] ashlein!

From over on [livejournal.com profile] playfullips' LJ: Consider this a surprise party for ashlein. I didn't have my shit together like I wanted, so hopefully people who love her like me will see this post and play along. Post fics and picspams and general well wishes for her because she is awesome and deserves to have the best birthday ever! And if you know someone that loves her that I don't know, please tell them!

Because I'm lame and fell asleep before [livejournal.com profile] playfullips posted this, I'm gonna have to be late to the party. Which is typical b/c I'm always late. But expect me to be playing there this evening after work, even though it will technically no longer be [livejournal.com profile] ashlein's birthday.
why_me_why_not: (happy birthday)
It's not quite midnight, but it's close enough. I can't figure out how to change the time when I post from my phone anyway, so I guess it doesn't matter.

Today is a very special day. There are two members of my flist (two of my favoritest peoples on the internet, two people I am so lucky to call "friends") who are celebrating birthdays! They both deserve some tangible token of my adoration, but they're getting a shared LJ post instead.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000: I am sometimes completely awed by you. You are so intelligent (not just about the sciencey stuff you do everyday for your job, but about books and culture and the world and everything) and so on top of things and seem to have it all together (which, I know, is usually just an illusion, but you do it so well!). You are such a fabulous writer, and quite often I love your brain for the things you come up with. You let me come crash at your house and make me feel welcome and you include me when I can't be there. And you don't laugh at me for being ridiculous. Seriously, I don't know what I'd do without you. I hope you have a fabulous birthday and that your hubby does something awesome for you.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart: Honestly, I don't know that I'd even be here if it wasn't for you. There are several people I credit for talking me off that figurative ledge a few years back when I was having my major breakdown, but you were the one I spent hours on the phone with. I hate that our fandom divisions led us down different paths; I didn't realize until recently how much I missed talking with you on a regular basis. I love that there's something I'm trying to figure out now and I know that you would answer my questions honestly and without making me feel judged, and idk if you realize how awesome that it, but it is awesome. YOU are awesome. Hopefully your birthday will be awesome as well, and your kiddos will hopefully make is a special one.

To the rest of my flist, go wish [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 and [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart the best of wishes for today. They deserve lots of love. <3
why_me_why_not: (happy birthday)
HEY! IT'S CRYS'S BIRTHDAY!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy!!!
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Frank ate my entry, so I gotta make this quick.

1. I'm working on working out the Texas thing.

2. SPN chat tonight on Y!M, 9pm EST, I'm tabbycat6380, send me a msg for an invite

3. Going to the post office Sat morning. Have letters for ashlein & for Kat's daughter, have pkgs for Alli, Jas, & Shonna. If I'm supposed to be sending anyone else anything, REMIND ME NOW!

Love yall, *smooches*!
why_me_why_not: (happy birthday)
Also? Today is my baby sister's 16th birthday. Go wish her a happy one!
