I love Castle, and Alexis is one of my favorites on the show. Interview with Molly Quinn

This super adorable picture came up on my facebook this morning: a combat medic holds two puppies he found at an observation post in Afghanistan. Puppy Carry )

Fic Rec: Neurotic and Sociopathic in Space by DeliriousEphemera (on fictionpress)
Summary: So your hot math teacher has a spaceship hidden in his basement. Oh, and he's a wanted criminal and you ended getting kidnapped by aliens. A little freaking out might be in order. Unless you're Jakob. Then it's the best thing that ever happened to you.
There are a lot of typos and SPAG type errors in this, but I like the snark? Also, it's completed, so that's a plus.

Um. I have 3000 words of ridiculously self-indulgent porn sitting here and I wish it would finish writing itself because OMG NOBODY HAS GOTTEN OFF YET! I told [livejournal.com profile] sonicbookmark that maybe next time I should try it with only two people and not write from the POV of someone who Never. Shuts. Up.

Anywho. Answers to questions you never knew you wanted to ask me!

Via [livejournal.com profile] kylieq:

Where were you born? Salem (Virginia). :) When I sing the SHS Fight Song, I actually mean "Salem born and Salem bred." And up until a few months ago, I still lived there. Right now we're 3.4 miles away from Salem, but I intend to end up back there.

Who do you love? Ronnie and Davey are at the top of that list. :) And Kelly Marie, obviously. Family and friends. <3

Did you have a cat when you were little? I did until I was five. We lost everything in a flood and then moved into an apartment where we couldn't have pets that weren't in cages.

Who hurt you biggest? My sister, by getting into that car when she had been drinking and knew the driver was drunk. You'd think that after 13 years, I'd be a little less angry about it.

How do you stay alive? Sheer stubbornness. If I die, my ex might get involved in my kids' lives and I kinda really don't want that.

What color are your eyes? blue most of the time, sometimes grey

What color is your aura? I have no idea. What color are auras supposed to be?

What color is your underwear? Purple

How many people have you abandoned? my exhusband and my exbestfriend. you can't help people who refuse to admit they have a problem.

What’s your favorite food? potatoes! mashed potatoes, fried potatoes, hash browns, french fries, sweet potatoes. YUM!

Did you like school? I like learning. I don't like having to interact with other people.

Do you want more? YES! I'd be a lifelong student if I could. I wanna learn EVERYTHING.

What does it mean to be in love? to place importance on someone else's happiness, to want to share what you have with others (I actually only believe in being "in love" for other people, so I'm making this up the best I can)

Do you believe in magic? Undoubtedly

Do people think you’re crazy? Only if they've met me.

Are you? Yep. Got the papers to prove it.

How old were you when you realized you’re all alone? How old were you when you realized you’re not alone? I don't know how to answer this question. I still have periods when I feel "alone" but for different values of the word. But I have friends and family and have never been truly alone. Looking at it from a point of faith, which I don't get into too much here on LJ, after my sister died, I kinda turned away from God but found my way back after my daughter died.

How do you wield power? Very carefully?

What’s your favorite outfit? blue jeans and a tshirt

What helps you sleep? I hate to sleep.

What flavors make you gag? banana, grosssssss!

Do you feel beautiful? not at all

Are you afraid of the dark? I was for a long time, and still have periods of it, but not of like the boogeyman. More of like my exhusband.

Do you believe in reincarnation? no

So, we're gonna ignore how crappy today was, and tomorrow I'm gonna post an actual happy list (with links! that's why I'm not doing it tonight!), so for tonight, how about a musicshare and a meme?

Musicshare: I Wanna Buy You a Ring by Huffamoose

I used to love the album this song was on, but my copy of it was stolen during the whole ex-husband-fucks-someone-on-a-drug-deal fiasco, and I've not been able to find a copy since then. But I love this song.

Yall, guess what?? I stepped on the scale and it says 199.5! It's been a long time since I saw this side of 200 pounds, lol. But that means I've lost almost 14 pounds in the last 2 months! AND! It's my fat week, so that means I'm doing good, right?

Okay, in less TMI info. OMG YALL I READ THE AWESOMEST WINCEST FIC!! Okay, so technically I beta'd it, but that totally counts as reading! And yall should go read it too!

dig your thumbs in by [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar
SPN || Dean/Sam || 12,000-ish words || NC-17
Warning: breathplay, D/s overtones.
Notes: Written for “breathplay” on kink_bingo card. Title from “Midlife Crisis” by Faith No More. Pre-series but not underage.

It's so delightfully fucked up and OMFGHOT and there is snark and fighting and sex and YUM! GO READ IT!

Also, weeks and weeks ago, I was supposed to post the answers to these 5 questions that [livejournal.com profile] pushingyouaway gave me. Oops?

ask me )
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.
why_me_why_not: (blame heather)
A few days ago, I made this post, and it's a circular type of meme thing, lol. And now [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 has given me me more words. :)

Remus/Sirius: PUPPIES! One of my few OTPs. I'm pretty sure I love this pairing almost as much, if not MORE, than I love H/D. I prefer Marauder-era to post-Azkaban, but I'll take either. My favorite R/S of all time is, obviously, Shoebox Project, but there are quite a few others that I've read (and written!) that I absolutely love.

Jepha: Jepharee Howard, sexy little bassist. That man is totally SEX on stage, and I could watch videos of him all day long. At the same time, he is so adorably dorktastic, that I can't help but love him immensely. *happy sighs* I feel a little weird about reading fic about Jepha after meeting him, but I'm getting over it, lol.

Winchesters (I know you got this one, but I can't help it, it's THERE in connection with you): haha, WINCHESTERS! Sam and Dean. And John, obvsly, who I love but at the same time wonder if he did the right thing. I mean, I know he did what he thought was right, and there's never been any doubt that he loves his boys and that he loves Mary, but at the same time... idk. Parenting is a hard job, it's unfair to judge someone else's perception of it.

text message: I LOVE MY PHONE. I love text messages, and feeling connected to yall. Some of my favorite stories have been send and/or rcvd via txt msgs. I sometimes worry about texting people, because I don't want to bother anyone or force them to pay attention to me, which is why a select few of you end up bearing the brunt of my text messages. But if you give me an okay, I will totally text you random shit at random times, lol.

baseball: I love baseball. We grew up playing neighborhood baseball all the time, plus going to games at our local minor league team. Some of my best memories are at the old field. When we first got the new field, I didn't like it, but now that I have the kids, I like it more. I'm not too fond of the new management, so we didn't go to too many games last summer, but I'm hoping this season will be better. Also, baseball movies are totally my weakness; I can't pass them up when they're on. Sandlot, Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, The Rookie, Rookie of the Year, Little Big League, Angels in the Outfield, Major League, etc...
why_me_why_not: (impala plates)
so, for dinner tonight I made country fried steak with gravy, mashed potatoes (with gravy!), and garlic toast. With gravy, lol. It was pretty awesome. AND! There are no leftovers, which is even more awesome. :)

MEME TIME!!

1. REPLY TO THIS MEME BY YELLING "[MY NAME] IS THE MASTER", AND I WILL GIVE YOU FIVE WORDS THAT REMIND ME OF YOU.

2. THEN POST THEM IN YOUR JOURNAL AND EXPLAIN WHAT THEY MEAN TO YOU.


[livejournal.com profile] pushingyouaway gave me the used, bobert, kids, bandom and winchesters.

1. The Used: Um, I love The Used? I don't know what it is about that band of dirty boys, but I love them. I have seen them five times since last October, and I would see them again in a heartbeat. Their videos on kyte and youtube crack me up. Jepha is the sweetest thing ever, Bert is tiny and adorkable, Dan is DAN, and Quinn Allman gets me all flustered. His smile is a thing of wonder and never fails to make me happy. also, I love the bit of fandom that revolves around The Used. I have met such awesome awesome people there, and the fic is fantastic. (also also, what I was planning on writing for BBB was TU hsau fic. I think I've decided to go with something else instead though.)

2. Bobert: Oh, Bob Bryar. *hearts* I usually call him "Stevie's Bob" (which is kind of an inside joke btwn me and [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow). Although I totally love Frank, Bob is my second favorite. Or sometimes my first favorite, yall know how I do. I'm super sad that Bob is no longer part of MCR, and I never knew MCR prior to Bob, so this whole thing is sad making. Mainly, I'm worried about Bob because he's been through a lot (with the surgery and the Dixie thing and everything else) and I want him to be happy and taken care of. I'm contenting myself making up stories about either him going to do sound for Patrick Stump's Solo Project or him staying with Brian Schechter and all those tweets about Brian's wife are just code for Bob.

3. Kids: I love kids too, most of the time. I have my two boys, who are awesome when they're behaving and a pain in my ass when they're not. I also have a ton of nieces and nephews, and my family is really big and really close, so we're together a lot. We also regularly pick up other kids, lol. Kids can be a source of some of the funniest shit you've ever heard, and also some of the funniest shit you've ever seen.

4. Bandom: I got into bandom on accident. [livejournal.com profile] wordsindreams asked me to write her Pete/Patrick once (which you can actually find here), and then I kinda wandered into bandom without knowing who anyone was. Then Alli got out of bandom but I was already sucked in, and I was squeeing about it to [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000. Then Gerard and Lyndsey got married, and I had a fic idea that I told [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 I wasn't going to write, and she responded with "That's cool, but if you were going to write it, this is what would happen next." Thus, The Epic Love Story of Brendon and Frank was born. I have met some awesome people through bandom, and I've had some epic adventures traveling to see bandomish bands. I'm kinda sad that bandom (or my corner of it) is drifting into other things, but maybe that'll change if Brendon and Spencer ever get their shit together and give us more music. I know, I know, Brendon's gotta wait until the school term is over, but still. They could give us something, lol.

5. Winchesters: Sam and Dean. :) Oh, and the Impala, she is totally my favorite. I am totally a Dean girl, always have been. I don't like the show as much now as I did back in the first couple seasons, but I still consider myself to be a fan and I watch it. I still don't know how I feel about this sixth season nonsense. I mean, we had always planned on five seasons, right? I already miss the monsters of the week episodes; I personally enjoyed them more than the apocalypse arc. I don't write Winchesters much anymore, other than drabbles for [livejournal.com profile] wendy and sometimes [livejournal.com profile] nasus221, mainly because I used to write a lot with [livejournal.com profile] wearethestars, who is the Dean to my Sam and who is absent from the internet now, but I do have this epic crossover fic I'd love to write. There are bits and pieces of it in several places, and it's probably something I'm gonna end up just spamming people with in email.
why_me_why_not: (awesome)
So, I decided against making an actual mommy/auntie filter for now. That may change after Illy is born, but for now yall can read if your interested and skip if you're not.

1. Ronnie is on an 'action plan' to put more effort into his schoolwork (yall know what a hard time I've had with him ALWAYS), but now, because he's getting extra attention for it, Davey is failing stuff ON PURPOSE so he gets that extra attention to. Parenting fail, wtf. I'm not quite sure what to do.

2. work!Amy is in IL for the weekend - her hubby graduates from Navy boot camp tomorrow - and Robbie is in Atlanta for the weekend for some video game thingy and Brittany is off tomorrow, so it's just gonna be me and work!Heather. Here's hoping for a quiet Friday. :)

3. Baby shower on Saturday. I apparently have one more prize than I do games lined up; anyone have a suggestion for a good baby shower game?

4. Somehow, I find that I'm going to be head coach for the boys' soccer team? idek. It's only one hour, twice a week, starting next week and going through the end of May, but still. I'm not sure how this happened or how I feel about it.

5. [livejournal.com profile] wendy posted a picture of this rainbow wedding dress from this rainbow wedding and I'm kinda in love with it.

6. [livejournal.com profile] starflowers wrote Bob/William fic: Prettier Than All The Rest

7. [livejournal.com profile] gelsey is doing hp rarepair drabble challenges for her flist. The challenge from last Friday is:
~ Severus Snape / Ginny Weasley
~ "One's first love is always perfect until one meets one's second love." Elizabeth Aston
~ doppelganger, repeat
~ portion, attempt, gaze
~ Pretty When You Cry by VAST
~ Janie's Got a Gun by Aerosmith

8. [livejournal.com profile] apiphile wrote A Guide to Mentally-Ill Thought Processes and also linked this post about "getting help" by [livejournal.com profile] naamah_darling. I highly recommend both of them to every single one of you.

9. last night, [livejournal.com profile] ashlein made a post asking for Draco/Neville recs, and I was like "Hey, I wrote that once!" But then I had to find it, and apparently I never actually linked it from my personal LJ after reveals were done at hpslashnotsmut last year? idk. But here it is.

Jump to Conclusions (note: while that is a line from an Empires song, I don't think that's where I got the title from? possibly, though.)
Draco/Neville || PG for a few curse words || ~2700 words
Draco’s keeping secrets from Neville.

10. A meme, as tagged by [livejournal.com profile] thedogstarlives several days ago. First: If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new question. Second: Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

Silly meme/quiz thingys stolen from my flist:

From [livejournal.com profile] eckerlilas:

you are pink
#FFC0CB

Your dominant hue is red... you are passionate, energetic, and unafraid of life's changes. You're all about getting out and trying something new, even if it means taking risks that other people would be afraid of. Hey, if they're afraid and you're not, more power to you, right?

Your saturation level is low - You stay out of stressful situations and advise others to do the same. You may not be the go-to person when something really needs done, but you know never to blow things out of proportion.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

I can't sleep even though I'm ridiculously tired (sidenote: I've had awesome dreams this past week or so, so sleep isn't my enemy right now. Idk whether to be amazed or worried about what it means for the future.), I have more than a week of LJ to try and catch up on, I owe fic to several people, my phone is still in the other room charging (don't ask why I didn't just bring it out here to charge; that would make too much sense!), and whinewhinewhine! Yeah, I really don't mean to whine. Instead, I'm going to procrastinate! Meme stolen from several people on my flist.

ten things I wish I could say to ten different people on LJ (don't use names):

1. Really, if you're that unhappy, quit fucking whining and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
2. Thank you for being there.
3. I feel worse about wanting to ignore you than actually doing so.
4. I told you this would end badly.
5. I wasn't kidding when I offered to hook you up with a job if you wanted to move here.
6. I always think you're humoring me when you tell me you like what I write.
7. I'm sorry for forcing my friendship on you.
8. Some call it stalking, I call it love.
9. I wish you lived closer b/c our kids would cause so much trouble together.
10. Not everything is about you.

nine things about myself:

1. I still feel awkward starting a conversation with someone I've been friends with for YEARS.
2. I really, really want a tattoo, but I could never get one b/c I hate the idea of a stranger touching me.
3. I sing along with the radio in the car, loudly and very badly, and change the station (or skip to the next track) before the song is over.
4. I honestly don't get why people think they have to be part of a couple to be happy?
5. I love loud four wheel drives, mudbogs, and bonfires.
6. Random facts and pictures amuse the heck out of me.
7. I am never on time to anything, anywhere. EVER.
8. I prefer words to pictures.
9. I'm more comfortable feeling needed than loved.

eight ways to win my heart:

1. do something nice for someone else
2. compliment my kids
3. cook for me :)
4. read to me / sing to me
5. remember the days
6. make me laugh
7. tell me a story (real or not)
8. apparently I'm easy? Or really hard? b/c honestly, if you talk to me, I'm happy. But idk that anyone, other than the two brats sleeping in the next room, would ever have my heart.

seven things that cross my mind a lot:

1. What the flippers?
2. Who you gonna call? WINCHESTERS! (really, it's ridiculous how often I think this)
3. Wait, I'm a grownup? (sometimes, I substitute "soccer mom" for "grown up")
4. Fuck this shit, I'm moving to Texas!
5. I have no idea where we're going to get the money for this.
6. What can I do to help?
7. Who can I txt this to?

six things I do before I fall asleep:

1. check on the boys
2. say my prayers
3. rearrange the pillows a gazillion times
4. check my phone one last time
5. make sure my alarm is set (usually do this more than once. not that it matters b/c I'm still gonna hit snooze a couple times and get up late)
6. this isn't necessarily something I do before I fall asleep, but yall remember that episode of SPN, maybe third season or so, where Sammy is asleep in the backseat of the Impala and Dean wakes him up and Sam has one hand tucked inside his pants? It amused the heck out of me b/c I totally sleep with one hand tucked into my pants. Yeah, idek.

five people who mean a lot:

1. Ronnie
2. Davey
3. Kelly Marie
4. Harley
5. Illiana (whatever, she totally counts as a people even if she isn't technically here yet!)

four things you're wearing right now:

1. black pj pants
2. grey pj top
3. um... pink panties?
4. srsly, yall, I have nothing else on. I've even taken the scrunchie out of my hair and my ring off my finger. Oh, I guess my glasses count though.

three songs that you listen to often:

the Phineas & Ferb theme song
1. The Used's Born to Quit (b/c it's my ringtone right now, and also b/c my ipod shuffle seems to like it?)
2. Restless Heart's Big Dreams in a Small Town
3. Panic's Northern Downpour (whatever, it's one of my happy songs, ok?)
(runner up would be Doobie Brother's Black Water or the Allman Brothers I'm No Angel. fyi.)

two things you want to do before you die:

1. figure out how to follow through / finish things
2. take my kids to visit awesome places / show them there's a whole wide world outside this valley

one confession: I'm afraid that even though I know all the things my ex said (says) about me are bullshit, I'll never actually believe it.

I LOVE WINCHESTERS!!!! OMG, YALL, THIS SHOW!! Tonight's episode was AWESOME and the kind of episode I love. <333333

Today was an awesome day in my corner of fandom, even though I am cut off from the world. Highlights:

*%* [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature, for this adorable piece of artsyness that I seriously printed out and stuck on the front of my current notebook and for The Brotherhood of the Travelling Skeleshirt which I need to go leave feedback on (and you should too!)

*%* Really, Pete? *shakes head*

*%* Jepha encouraging cosplay

*%* Dean Winchester <3

*%* on twitter this afternoon, I responded to something [livejournal.com profile] skoosiepants said with "I did that with a werewolf au once" (b/c I totally DID make shit up in a werewolf au!). Well, [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface, being the way she is, posted this afterward and I've been laughing ever since. I DID THAT WITH A WEREWOLF ONCE! (also, I'm pretty sure this means [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface is gonna get spammed with werewolf!Empires when I'm on my lunch break tomorrow)

Also, a meme. Comment and I'll give you a letter. You have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. Afterwards, post this in your journal.

[livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie gave me "M", so, in random order...

*%* MikeyWay! (b/c who doesn't <3 MikeyWay???)

*%* Music (haha, bet yall never would've guessed that!)

*%* Mashed Potatoes (yummmmm!!!)

*%* [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart (srsly, she is the BEST.)

*%* Milkshakes (not those fake things either. real milkshakes, made with real, all fat ice cream, and milk fresh from the creamery. and peanut butter. apparently the reeses milkshakes from scott and ely's are vanilla ice cream, peanut butter, and chocolate milk. also, did you know they make orange cream milk. it's like drinking a dreamsicle!!)

*%* Marmosets! (BRENDON AND SPENCER! I totally blame that on [livejournal.com profile] sunsetmog, btw.)

*%* Marshmallows (as long as we don't leave them out where the bears can get them!)

*%* Mountains (lol, the other day when we were going to Baltimore, Tim was like "we don't need directions yet; you drive up 81 til the mountains end and then turn right!")

*%* M&Ms (provisions!)

*%* MAIL! (as long as it's not bills)

As seen everywhere, now that I've got my stalker settings figured out... (also, I have like 10 hrs in a car tomorrow to waste time. And an extra ticket to see The Used in Baltimore tomorrow if anyone wants to claim it & meet us?)

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.
why_me_why_not: (paranoid)
My cts is acting up. :( Idk if it's the cooler weather or my continuous poor wrist positioning at work (our training class is not ergonomically correct) or what, but my wrists HURT today. And wearing my braces makes everything difficult. Luckily my kids are feeling extra helpful today.

So instead of the thinky-thoughts LJ post that's been brewing in my head all day, how about a meme instead?

Ask me any questions you want and I'll answer them (... within reason, subject to approval, for a limited time only, your home may be at risk if you do not keep up payments) in a voice post. Or maybe a video.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar but also as seen elsewhere on my flist. I will CRY about being unloved if no one asks me anything, I'm warning yall. Also, I will probably wait til like Tues or Wed evening to post the answers.

For now, I'm gonna go pester my brother (my mom killed my car last night, and he just got here to try and perform a miracle), then I'm gonna curl up with a kid to watch Goosebumps and probably reread some Thursday Verse b/c it makes me happy.

<3

Leave me a comment and I will give you a letter. Then, write 10 things that you love starting with that letter. Post the list in your journal. Give out letters to your commenters in return.

I asked [livejournal.com profile] casualyobsessed for a letter and she said: J. And I want at least one thing for Q. :) *rolls eyes*

The Q thing is because my sister is silly and likes to make fun of me over my love for Quinn Allman. Whatever. Have a picture of Quinn: )

Now, J things!

1. Johnathan This is actually the reason she gave me J, so I would say I love [livejournal.com profile] fangs_up1. Other very-important-persons with J names in my life: my nephew Joseph, Jon & Jessie from my previous workplace, [livejournal.com profile] gelsey, and [livejournal.com profile] itjustsaysnow.

2. J-named people I'm fannish over including: Josh Holloway, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Jon Walker, Jepha Howard, Joe Trohman, Jack-the-Camera-Guy

3. Jokes of the inside variety

4. Jalapenos When i was pregnant with Kelly Marie, I couldn't stand onions and normally I eat them on like everything, so while I was carrying her, I ate jalapenos on everything instead!

5. Jim Butcher Yay Dresden Files!

6. Jericho I really liked this show, and even though I would love to see what happened to the town and the characters I'd grown to love, I was actually pretty happy with how the series ended. I also love that the fans were the ones that made the second season happen.

7. Jaida Jones Aka [livejournal.com profile] ladyjaida, co-genius behind the Shoebox Project, coauthor of Havemercy and Shadow Magic, and one of the nicest people I've ever met.

8. Jeeps My ex and I had a 1981 CJ5, and I loved that damn thing. Dirt brown in color, drain holes in the floor so when you got done mudding you could just hose it down inside and out, reliable. By the time we got rid of her, the frame was starting to rust in the middle, the muffler was long gone, and the gas tank was being held on with duct tape and chicken wire.

9. Jesus I don't talk about religion on here, because I believe Faith is a deeply personal thing, but the foundation of my faith is Jesus.

10. JDRF Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. One of [livejournal.com profile] casualyobsessed's good friends has juvenile diabetes, so this is one of our most supported charities.

Know what today is? Today is the official day of the Great American Backyard Campout! I think the kids are gonna go over to Pam & Jay's and campout with their cousins. It's a trial run for when Pam & Jay take all of them camping at Jellystone later this month.

MEME: Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

Given to me by the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] gelsey:

[livejournal.com profile] kerrikins posted this in her LJ.

Pick 10 people and give them the "you make my day" award. If you're picked, you are charged with picking 10 of your own. If you wanna do it, go for it!

[livejournal.com profile] bicrim: I love your perspective on things, your willingness to stand your ground, and the love you have for your boys.
[livejournal.com profile] ccmom: another mommy! your txts always make me smile, and I like that we can talk about kids and life and whatnot even though we don't share a lot of fandom right now.
[livejournal.com profile] trackscovered: You are adorable, and I love to laugh with you at the crazy shit you do.
[livejournal.com profile] gelsey: You are such a warm, friendly person, and you keep providing me with positive thoughts even though I know you're going through a rough patch of your own.
[livejournal.com profile] lilian_cho: I'm not gonna lie, I just keep you around for your OCD habit of tagging my entries for me! :P Just kidding. I love your unique way of looking at things and the vast amounts of creativity you have and RIVER!
[livejournal.com profile] casualyobsessed: Best little sister EVER.
[livejournal.com profile] fangs_up1: b/c I know you'll get jealous if I don't put you. And yeah, I'm probably making fun of you. <3
[livejournal.com profile] shutyourface: I know we haven't been friends long, but I LOVE YOU and I don't think a day has gone by in a long time that you haven't made me smile.
[livejournal.com profile] phaballa: You love me even though I like Ryro. :)
[livejournal.com profile] gossymer: we don't talk very often at all, but since I stole my layout and my profile codes from you, plus I use icons you made, I'm reminded of you and your awesomeness EVERY DAY.

To the rest of my flist: *massive hugs* I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH! EVERY DAY YOU GIVE ME A REASON TO SMILE, A REASON TO BELIEVE THAT THE DAY ISN'T A TOTAL LOSS EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE GOING WRONG. *LOVES*

And [livejournal.com profile] gelsey did this other meme.

Comment to this post and I will give you five subjects/things I associate with you. Then post this to your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

I was given:

1. Bandom
2. Fun text messaging
3. Your cute kids
4. A sucky job (much like mine)
5. Dresden Files, baby
