♥ Ronnie got a 100% on his final English project for Unwind! This is such a huge deal, as I'm sure some of you remember how Ronnie is about school and reading.

♥ I won passes for the Salem Fair AND tickets to see The Importance of Being Earnest today. Yay!

♥ got a free burger from Red Robin today for my birthday!

♥ got to enjoy Red Robin with my Pastor - lunch dates with her are always good for my soul!

♥ Nashville won last night. Tie series! #becauseitsthecup

♥ The sun is shining! There's also a super nice breeze.

Happy List

why_me_why_not: (lovekitty)
It's been ages, but I used to do happy lists on the daily, and they made ME happy, so I'm going to try starting it up again. Baby steps.

♥ There was a group from Christ Lutheran Church this morning, standing on the corner in the rain to pass out free coffee, donuts, and smiles to passing cars/commuters. I don't usually drive that direction, so I don't know if this is a regular thing, but it made me smile. (I don't drink coffee, but I did talk to one of the ladies while I was stopped at the stoplight, and it was a bright spot in my morning!)

♥ There is a groundhog the size of Duchess in my neighbor's yard. I hope the neighborhood cats leave him alone, although I'm sure he could hold his own in a fight.

♥ The weather was gorgeous this weekend.

Wonder Woman was great.

♥ It's rainy this morning, which means Duke, Duchess, and Margrave wanna cuddle. Which I'm a-ok with because I'm planning on going back to bed in a few minutes and trying to sleep off this migraine before it gets too bad. (Even though I really should take them by the vet's today to have their nails trimmed.)

♥ SOLs are done, and the boys passed all of them except Ronnie's English Writing SOL (which he failed by one point and doesn't have to retake until next year). Technically my kids are in school until next Wednesday, but I think this Friday is the last day either of them have to go because they don't have to do exams. Yay Summer!

♥ Leftovers from our big Friends and Family Picnic yesterday mean I don't have to worry about making dinner tonight.

♥ I got a new baby last week! A great nephew, Bryson, born Tuesday. (Although his momma is in the hospital with c-section complications, which is definitely NOT something for the happy list.)

♥ My Aunt Vicky is heading to Nicaragua on Saturday with a group of other nurses for a mission trip of some sort.

♥ Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs tonight!

Happy List for Wednesday

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

[livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane lives in a high school AU.

my new blanket. It's fleecey and soft and warm and a pretty light green color, and I kinda never wanna leave my bed again.

illy's been waving bye-bye and saying "hi" to people. We're trying to teach her to say "I love you", but she just laughs at us.

made a parmesan garlic pork roast for dinner last night that turned out awesome.

Brendon Urie's stupid face *draws hearts*

the panic video!

sweet tea

my friend Susan had her baby yesterday

watching my boys get along - they make a great pair on their basketball team, working together without discussing it or even looking at each other. Also, Davey's been helping Ronnie go over what he needs to know in order to earn his next stripe in karate. They still fight nearly all the time, but I love it when they don't.
why_me_why_not: (Default)
I really need to quit fucking off on the internet and go make dinner for the kids so I can get showered before Shannon comes to pick me up. But the internet is so entertaining! Today was my do-nothing day, and so I had a chance to get reacquainted with the wonder of the internet. HOW HAVE I BEEN SURVIVING WITHOUT IT?

And I haven't even been on Livejournal! That is my task for tomorrow!

Things that make today great:

1. Drive A announced a new tour, which means they'll be in Norfolk in Feb. I still kinda adore them. And I'm excited about their new album.

2. Empires. I cannot find the words to express my feelings on them. First, they release their music video for BANG, which is so NSFW and creepy and THEM, and everyone should go watch. Just be careful of who is around when you're watching, lol. But also on that page, in addition to their broken video counter, are the pictures Tomrad took during the video shoot. I love this failtastic band!

3. Mat Devine (from Kill Hannah) did a Q&A type thing that totally made my morning. Sidenote of special thanks goes out to [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique, because she's the reason I even know who Mat is!

4. Everyone ever is fired for not linking me this video last week: Spencer got a stun gun... HOW DID ANYONE EVER THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?

5. Shane put three videos up for the Doritos Crash the Superbowl Challenge: Long Shot, What?, and What? - Extended (Zack seems to like the first one, I like the third one. Still - go watch!)

6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows tonight! And tomorrow! (haha, going to the midnight show with friends, then taking the boys tomorrow evening)

okay, I really need to get in the shower. Will have my phone, feel free to text me since I'm sure I won't be the only on standing in line waiting for DH tonight. <3

When things are looking down, a Happy List always makes things better, right?

Illiana. She's laying here babbling at me right now, and she is getting so big! Love love love.

got a nearly-last-minute invite to a concert tonight, and I'm not one to turn down a free concert. I'm not a huge Carrie Underwood fan, but I am a big Billy Currington fan, so it works out.

only a week until Deathly Hallows! I already have my tickets, and a couple dozen people to go with. Yay!

one of the newbies at work (the one who told me I need to watch Buffy b/c it'll be the most important thing I ever do in my life). He asks me questions sometimes just to make himself think the question through & answer it himself, so we decided I'm his imaginary friend and he calls me Theodore.

Amy & Cliff are coming up this weekend! I talk to Amy everyday, but I still miss her, so I'm super excited about seeing her. And Cliff. I love his dorkass too. :)

we're moving in two weeks!

work!Heather is getting married! She asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. She's all superexcited about the wedding, so I'm superhappy for her.

baby brother has been staying with us & he went grocery shopping last night so the pantry and freezer are full

fic and fic-like ramblings from [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 and [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane

the email chain, which makes my every day brighter even if I can't always respond to it
why_me_why_not: (reeses heart)
Ugh. I feel crappy. Sore throat, fever, chills, headache, cough. Super blech! Idk if it's the virus Kristina had for the last week or whatever we've been passing around the internet (and yes, it is totally possible to catch an illness from email!), but DNW. Especially since it's a beautiful Saturday and we don't have anything planned! I got up and washed dishes and started laundry and cleaned the bathrooms so I wouldn't feel guilty for doing nothing the rest of the weekend, and now I'm gonna lay in bed until I have to go get the boys. One of them is at RT & Kristina's and the other is at James's, and neither one wants to come home yet. Kids!

I miss my laptop sooooo much, you guys! Especially on days like today when I wanna stay in my nest of pillows and blankets and write fic. Also, I broke my phone charger! I have fic to type up and share, but no matter how hard I wish, it isn't magically transferring itself from my notebook to the computer. Tragic!

Here are some things that made me happy this week:

work!Heather saved me all the green gummy bears, after I proposed to her with a ring pop

my!Heather (which is totally what I call [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 when I'm talking about her in real life!) sent me Heat Wave to read, which I'm geekily excited about.

also! [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 writes the most awesome fic and she wrote a super lovely Brad/Nate that everyone should go over to her LJ and read!

my other baby brother (as opposed to my actual baby brother) proposed to his girlfriend of 4 years last night and she said yes!

Chickens are polygamists & cannibals, and they don't need "interaction" to reproduce!

Decepticon are attacking the Hundred Acre Wood! (thanks to Twitter and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile and... whichever one of you is nerdsoup on twitter, I think, I'm failing pretty hardcore today on names!)

Bruce brought me a pickle!

I want all the GK!Ray fic IN THE WORLD!

imagine this: a bunch of angry turtles... stampeding... through molasses!

new schedule at work starting next weekend is Sun to Wed 8am to 630pm!

"I would've thought more of cuffing you to the bed to keep you out of trouble." Sean's voice is low and rough, the voice Tom is used to taking orders from. "But seeing how pretty you look like this..." He runs his fingers across Tom's skin, just under the edge of the collar, and Tom shivers. "I think Ryan had the right idea."

Okay, I'm gonna take a nap now. Love yall! *mwah*
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

♥ BRENDON URIE'S STUPID FACE!

♥ 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?

THINGS for a THURSDAY!

[livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane is one of my favoritest people in the ENTIRE WORLD and she can tell me schmoopy stories all day long.

♥ tomorrow is FRIDAY!

[livejournal.com profile] wordsindreams has a bday coming up!

- my feet are asleep for no reason

[livejournal.com profile] stratospherique saying on twitter (one day last week): GET SOME EMO ANTIVIRALS. THIS MEANS PIXIESTIX.

♥ the pics Jepha's been posting on Twitter. (QUINN! And Link! And practice space!)

+ GO VOTE FOR EMPIRES!

Pajama Jam tickets go on sale in the morning!

- one of my dad's friends passed away this week, so being kidless tonight meant I got to go adultsit the drunks after the funeral. I haven't seen most of these people in YEARS, and yes, I may have been hanging out in your bar since I was in diapers, but that doesn't give you a right to hug me!

+ [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar posted a link to butt confidential 2, which was hilarious but also informative read about anal sex

♥ I'm caught up on Leverage! Spic'n'span damnit! (Parker is still my favorite. But Eliot & Hardison are close behind!)

♥ the PWTs are gonna be on The Tonight Show. Guess I need to watch, lol. Even if their lead singer is a leprechaun.

- [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 has actual plans this weekend, boooo. I mean, yay for her, but boo for me? *g*

- I am behind on LJ. Again. Lol.

♥ ♥ But I have a whole weekend to catch up!

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:

HAPPY LIST IS TOO LONG TO LEAVE OUTSIDE A CUT! )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Let's not talk about work. Let's talk about happy things.

Like Jensen and Daneel getting married on Saturday!

Like Steven Smith's blog!

Like [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile's Brat Prince 'Verse!

Like [livejournal.com profile] werewolfbigbang!!

Like [livejournal.com profile] bandgirlsbang!

Like this post of super supernatural fanart!

Like Out of Print Clothing!

Like Johnny Weir and his ridiculous coat of whatthefuck last night!

Like Evan Lysacek is gonna be on my TV in ten minutes! Also, season finale of Castle tonight!

Okay, meme time. The icon meme thing that's been going around my flist.
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!


[livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie picked these for me:


Serious laugh - I can't even remember how this came about (I'm sure it was funny at the time, though, since it involved Pi), but I have used it on occasion when there is something so ridiculous that you can't even believe it's true.


Computarded - There was an interview with those Fall Out Boys last year sometime, and Joe Troh said he was "computarded". I am fairly computarded sometimes myself, so I had to snag it when someone made it an icon. I use it when I have a technical issue I can't figure out.


Dinosaur/history Oh, come on. Who wouldn't get a dinosaur if they had the chance??


hearthands [livejournal.com profile] lilian_cho made this for me from a picture that Davey took. We were at the science museum last year and Davey was in a phase where he was fascinated by heart hands (yall may remember he took a picture at the BND concert last year of the stage lights through someone's heart hands and he won a prize at the fair for that pic last year) so he had Haley make a heart in the rainbow lights. I use this one a LOT because I love it and I think it conveys love. <3333


to do list This is the icon for when I actually have no obligations and get to stay at home and hang out with my laptop and do what I want. That doesn't happen very often, but it's oh so nice when it does.


Impala home Yall remember the end of first season, right? That summer my whole mantra was "not the Metallicar", lol, and I was so ready for the new season to come along and say that was all a vision. I'm pretty sure I wrote fic for it. I love the Impala and new that the boys would be back but wasn't sure about the car. Also, I figured it out a long time ago that the Impala was the boys' home. She is totally my favorite Winchester and I love how appropriate this icon turned out to be.

Ugh, I fucking hate Tuesdays. HATE HATE HATE! Let's see if we can make the plusses outweigh the minuses for today, shall we?

- flat tire on my car
- my skirt is stupid and keeps sliding sideways so it no longer fits right
- Ronnie got sent home sick from school
- Daddy called me at the last minute needing me to take him to the funeral home this evening
- I started my period at the soccer game
- tired, grumpy, headachy, and crampy

+ I got an actualfax break this morning and got to contribute to the email chain
+ Stephane Lambiel
+ [livejournal.com profile] more_is_more
+ Chicagoland: The Collector's Edition
+ this I <3 Music tshirt
+ Illy fussing at Grandma (it's pretty darn cute!)
+ [livejournal.com profile] eckerlilas's bb!Spencer's shake your booties video
+ I have one two installments of the Brat Prince Verse to read
+ DWTS
+ Davey and his teammate Alec did an awesome job tonight of playing together and passing - their team won 5 to 1
+ oh, it's possible there is fic in my inbox from earlier that I haven't read yet!

So, had a shittastic day. Took a sup call this morning for a crazy woman, who proceeded to call back two more times and specifically ask for me just to yell some more. Idk how many of yall have ever worked in a call center, but it was pretty ridiculous. On the first call, she told me I needed to quit my job and go work for a real company. The last call, she told me to tell my supervisor that I'm incompetent and should be fired. Seriously, CRAZY. And ruined my day.

So, hows about a happy list? Those make everything better, right?

In just a couple hours, it'll be [livejournal.com profile] eckerlilas's birthday!

the pictures from Brendon's birthday celebration

Drop Dead Fred did it!

There's a ridiculous story that's been dancing around my head for the past couple of days (thanks to the email gang) where Johnny & Evan had a thing back in the day and Evan freaked and now they don't really talk, but then Johnny starts hanging out with Adam Lambert and the two of them are everywhere and Evan's all jealous even though he won't admit it. And then they're all out together at a party and Evan's just tipsy enough to think it's a good idea to take a swing at Adam on principle. It's pretty hilarious in my head, ngl. But I'm enjoying it.

Thomas Raith

Travis Clark tweeting about shutting his hair in the car door. (Yall know I love Travis, truly, but his hair is pretty damn scary!)

The new Butch Walker video

frozen peanut butter cups

being able to wear jeans to work

the boys stole my laptop last night to watch music videos. It started with the Butch Walker videos, then we had to watch the Weekend at Pete Rose's, then we watched some FOB videos. My kids are particularly fond of the video for Carpal Tunnel of Love

Hope everyone else is having a better week than I am! LOVE YALL! *mwah*

How about a Happy List? (I don't have time for much lately, but I figure I can at least post a happy list. Hopefully that'll lead to posting more.)

Rain! There's actually a song that I'd upload to share for the five of you that listen to country music if I had my hard drive hooked up, but it's a ridiculously catchy song by Luke Bryan (who actually has a lot of ridiculously catchy songs) called Rain Is A Good Thing, and it's like rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey, whiskey makes my baby feel a little bit frisky. But that's not why rain is on my happy list. There are some massive brush fires going on right now and some of my favorite people have been out there fighting the fires, so I'm hoping the rain helps with that.

[livejournal.com profile] eckerlilas's babies. That pic of bb!Logan on facebook seriously made my day.

email chains. thank yall for making the few breaks I'm able to sneak at work that much better.

So, per the poll in my last entry, yall wanna see a happy list and pics of Illiana. (the runner up to that is a picspam of Spencer Smith. Oh, flist, I love you.)

HAPPY LIST

Davey made me lunch this morning. I had a messy PBJ, a pudding cup, and fruit snacks. And koolaid.

My cousin named her kid Cullen. While this doesn't exactly make me happy, it does provide me with an overwhelming sense of amusement.

we seemed to have skipped right over spring. Warm sunny days are made of win!

got to spend Sunday afternoon at the river with part of the family. good times. we got a group photo; I'll be sure to share it when my Aunt Vicky sends me a copy. It's probably the first family picture EVER that doesn't have a bunch of beer cans in it. (Daddy was drinking, obvsly, but he was putting his beer in a cup)

I only have to work until noon tomorrow! Gonna spend the afternoon at the park with Ronnie, Davey, and Holdon.

inside jokes

I put in for a quality position at work. *crosses fingers* (the happy part of this is related to how many people told me I needed to apply)

March of Dimes team is gonna be called "Maybe Babies" so everyone can speculate which members of my team are pregnant, lol.

laying under the ceiling fan

the cake my aunt made for Easter. It was like a layer of chocolate cake, a layer of vanilla creme cake, a layer of chocolate pudding, and another layer of chocolate cake. With chocoloate icing. I swear, I gained 10 pounds just looking at it.

[livejournal.com profile] stratospherique and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile's Brat Prince 'Verse. Omfg, yall, it is so ridiculously hot and filthy and awesome, and I cannot wait to get caught up on reading.

[livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane's Be One Traveler. 30K of woke-up-in-another-universe skating fic. Seriously, a couple weeks ago I didn't even know who Johnny Weir was. Certain members of my flist insist on using their powers for Evil.

Empires is gonna play in Baltimore. That is close enough to me to be doable.

I'm feeling better, thank goodness, but work is still kicking my ass. I really, really can't wait to get my laptop, b/c spending time on the internet is soooo much easier when I can do it from bed. This computer chair in the middle of the living room isn't exactly the most comfortable seat in the house.

I have 2 outstanding fics for [livejournal.com profile] bandomvalentine. One of them is written and betad, but I'm not sure I'm 100% happy with the ending so I'm working with [livejournal.com profile] citikitti on that. The other, I thought I had it figured out but I'm not sure I do. But apparently we're getting another 8 to 10 inches of snow on Friday so I have all weekend to work on it.



Now, as promised. LINKS!!! Things I enjoyed, things I wanted to go back to, things I think need to be shared. Whatever, a big mishmash of STUFF. :) (if anything doesn't work, let me know tomorrow. I'm off to bed after this.)

In the neverending list of reasons of how my flist is awesome, there is this article in Voice of Youth Advocates is about [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge and Nameless and the Extribulum process for publication. (sidenote, if you haven't read Nameless, you can buy it here or download the pdf for free here.)

Related to Lulu, BUY THIS BOOK! Know Your Words, a book of poetry written, including contributions from [livejournal.com profile] apiphile. (there is also a facebook page for this book, fyi)

[livejournal.com profile] strangecreature, as is her way, drew this fabulous little comic of adorableness with Pete and Patrick. (she has a way with words as well, and in my links I found this poem that I quite liked)

[livejournal.com profile] howifall is another excellent artist. here is an example that makes me ridiculously happy.

Fic Recs

[livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 wrote Generation Kill fic! I have no idea who these characters are, but she and [livejournal.com profile] vic_ramsey promised to catch me up to speed on GK as soon as I get unlimited internet access again, bless them. Either way, I'm sure there are some of you who are familiar with Generation Kill, or with [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, who would be interested. Strong, Strong Wind, Nate Fick/Brad Colbert, ~2100 words, PG-13

[livejournal.com profile] apiphile has been writing original fic based on prompts from sexisnottheenemy, and I haven't gotten to read them all, but this one I particularly like. I think there's a lot more to the story there, before and after, and am kinda intrigued by what it is.

The Night Has Gone (Tell Me We Can Stay) by [livejournal.com profile] ashlein. Obviously, I'm biased b/c I beta'd it, but I'm also quite fond of Cash Colligan's ridiculousness.

Dueling Practice by [livejournal.com profile] gelsey. Harry/Pansy, Harry James Potter could never refuse a dare.

Convinced by [livejournal.com profile] sinsense. Mikey/Pete, outdoor sex, written for [livejournal.com profile] no_tags.

Stealing Kisses by [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane. 6000 words of always-a-girl Brendon/Spencer first-time awkward teenage sex. Who could resist that?

I'm not sure WHY this was sitting around in my to-be-linked stuff for so long, but whatever. Yesterday Upon the Stair by [livejournal.com profile] phaballa. AI RPF | Brad/Adam | Adult.

coda to SPN 5x11, Martin-centric, written by [livejournal.com profile] acidquill

This one may be flocked, but [livejournal.com profile] pixel_0 wrote preseries dean/sam that I actually really liked (and we all know that I'm not a big fan of preseries wincest).

GENERAL AWESOMENESS

Picspam of awesome by [livejournal.com profile] fallintosilence! Now pictures! Of rainbow things and awesome gay rights protests/marches signs and just a general gay-themed picspam to remind people why this is so important.

Open Heart Savouries from [livejournal.com profile] ihavecake's Horror Kitchen blog.

Everybody's Free to Be Fannish by [livejournal.com profile] elizah_jane. Tips for surviving in fandom. Someone linked to this, probably [livejournal.com profile] wendy, but I'm not sure. Regardless, definitely worth reading.

In other news, I found some random William/Travie/Tom porn written in my dayplanner? I blame [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000.

THINGS FOR A TUESDAY!
(with no html b/c I'm lazy & on my phone)

1. Tell me how much you love Bang and Empires and Tom&Ryan&Sean&Al&Max! And if you haven't dwnloaded Bang yet (why not??), go do so (free at weareempires.com) and then come back and tell me what you think.

...

Go on, I'll wait.

...

Back? Ok.

2. I'm not getting any of *my* email notifications for LJ, so I have no way of knowing if someone has replied to comments or posted new entries. However, for some reason the lj I share with irisgirl12000 is set so we get notification every time one of our friends gets a virtual gift so I'm getting a wealth of those emails. Silly LJ.

3. Mom's car is officially totalled. My van needs new wipers and a power steering pump. The tbird needs brakes. And sucks to drive in rain, much less winter weather.

4. Sara at work had an escalated call today and she asked the caller to hold while she got a supervisor and he said he would as long as she didn't hang up on him and Sara was like "unfortunately, sir, I'm not allowed to do that." It was pretty epically funny.

5. I have the best friends in the WORLD.

6. When I don't take my drugs, I'm scared of the dark.

7. An album came out today called Smile Kid. Who's heard it? (I haven't yet but I will, just b/c I love those dorkfaces)

8. Quinn Allman

9. The ceiling in my back room is leaking. I can hear it. It kinda freaks me out.

10. I don't have anything to put here, but there has to be a number ten.

How about a Happy List? That's just what everyone needs on this lovely Monday when LJ is holding our comments hostage, right? (Since all the email notifications are screwbared - and I know they're working on it - I have no idea what's gone on with any of you today b/c I'm not getting notification of new entries.)

♥ SNOWFLAKE COOKIES! Thank you to everyone who gave me one! My profile page is all blizzardy!

♥ I got my first official holiday card in the mail today! Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] acidquill!

♥ I somehow ended up on break today with Heather and Britney at the same time, which was awesome.

[livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy is texting me the most adorable fic

♥ EMPIRES! (if I have to explain this... well, idek. THEY DON'T REQUIRE EXPLANATION!)

♥ My brother is awesome and came by to check the power steering fluid in my car b/c I was complaining it was too cold outside for me to do it :)

♥ hoodies

email chains lol, I've used that one before. BUT THEY STILL MAKE ME HAPPY! Um... how about [livejournal.com profile] vic_ramsey emailing pics of Bden. Guarenteed to make me smile, and always excellent for me since I can't always get to a computer to see things that everyone else is squeeing over.

♥ sweet tea

♥ cookies! of the real, home baked variety! I think I'm gonna go whip up a batch...
