So, I have a long overdue fic due to [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie, because she is made of awesomesauce and made a donation to my Relay for Life campaign in response to this post.

I do have to say, it's a challenge writing for [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie because she is awesomesauce and I want to write something worthy of her, but nothing I wrote seemed to work for me. And I owe her 1000 words of The Used, bandom babies, with babies clarified as Either Drive A or Dan's unborn daughter Farrah. Since I had trouble, she gets two 500 word ficlets. She's also going to be getting a package in the mail in the next week or so, and her name on a sunshine card that'll be prominently displayed on our banner since she was our very first donor for the year.

The Used & Drive A

Oh my god, Quinn, they're babies! )

Dan + his daughter

Two pink lines on a home test, a second and third just to be sure. )

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie! I'm sorry for the delay, and I appreciate you more than you know. LOVE YOU! <3

Good morning! Happy Friday!

I have to work on more CEUs today, which isn't all that fun, obviously. But at least I don't have to leave the house this morning. It's all cold and rainy and yucky outside again. We definitely need the rain, especially with the early start to fire season and the large number of forest fires we had last week, but I'm glad I don't have to go out in it.

Today is Bert McCracken's birthday. Last year on this day (lol), I took Monkeyface to see The Used in concert and he got the band to sign his shoes and he and Bert are "buddies for life" now (according to Bert). I love that pocketsized crazy dude.

Want some more links?

I've been reading original fic lately instead of fandomy stuff, and the story I read last night was cute, so I figured I'd share. Half a Lie by [livejournal.com profile] silver_etoile. Two months ago, Cody kissed his best friend. It's a good way to start a Friday. :)

Also, I'm a little late on this, but I got this link from over at [livejournal.com profile] more_is_more: Warm and Fuzzy Heart Day Icons

Most of yall are more tumblr savvy than I am, but I figured I'd ask anyway - have you seen this picture of Misha and Jensen? And this one of James Franco's cat nap? :)

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend lined up! *mwah*
why_me_why_not: (Default)
I know what I was gonna say yesterday and forgot! Did yall see the video of The Used that Jepha posted the other day? (here's the link if you need it) If you ignore what they're actually doing in the video (BOYS!), they look so good. Like, happy and healthy good! I'm am ridiculously pleased by that!

Speaking of videos, check this one out: PWTs )

Andrew didn't get fired today; instead it was decided that he's getting moved to Collections. He's walking a really fine line though, which sucks because all the time he's missed is because of his mom and he doesn't qualify for FMLA because he hasn't been there long enough. So, last night his mom's heart monitor kept going off and he spent most of the night / early hours of the morning at the ER with her, but they couldn't find anything wrong with her heart and couldn't figure out why she was having chest pains / symptoms of a heart attack. He left her there and came to work (late) but then the hospital called and said they needed Andrew's authorization for something. Long story short - his mom's cancer has spread and things don't look good for her at all. So Andrew's upset and crying at work, and if he leaves he'll lose his job, and it made me all upset. And I was in the hallway on my cell phone when he came to find me and tell me, and there wasn't anyone else around from our team, so I had to hug him. (okay, yall know how I feel about physical affection. Like, I'll throw virtual hugs and snuggles around all day long, but I don't like people to actually touch me. Last week, when Andrew came back to work after his grandfather passed away, I made Heather hug him for me.) So it made the rest of my day all blah, even after some strings were pulled and Andrew left.

In other work-related news, we were talking about vampires today (idek) and Thomas Raith is my favorite vampire, and now I want someone to tell me stories about Thomas and Justine. Or maybe Billy and Georgia. What? That line of thought made sense in my head!

Gotta go make cupcakes. Hopefully will get more computer time later. *mwah*

Ugh, nightmares and insomnia - why do they exist? So over that shit!

Next time I start feeling all whiny and shit, someone needs to shove me in the direction of [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique's LJ. It's probably wrong on some level that the Brat Prince Verse is happy place fic for me, but that's okay. Also, I owe [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile comments, but the point is that BPV makes me happy.

I'm still playing catchup on drabbles/ficlets. I think it's a forever kind of prospect.

I have decided that I apparently like to create entire 'verses and just write random scenes from them instead of a coherent story. Also, the last time I said I wasn't going to write in a particular fandom and told [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 "I'm not gonna write this story, but if I did it would go like this..." and she came back with "Okay, we're not writing it, but if we were the next part would be...", we played around for like a month and ended up with The Epic Love Story. She is obviously an evil enabler. We're not doing that again (famous last words), but we have accidentally created a GK-ish verse that we're having a lot of fun with. :)

I was going to share a couple snippets from the different verses I've got going on right now, but that requires turning off the window unit A/C so I could plug in my hard drive. I could probably do a fic dump later this weekend? I have a Johnny/Evan story that has no point, and I don't have anything planned in it further than where it is, b/c Johnny doped up on painkillers and eating ice cream with Evan and ended up falling asleep on the couch together and drooling on Evan's shoulder was as far as the planning got in that fic.

Anyway. I've still got like a dozen drabbles/ficlets to type up/post from the last time I offered them, and I have threesome fic to finish for the email chain girls, and I have several bits of not!fic that I'm not writing, but I like drabble prompts because they're easy. :) So, first 10 people to request something drabblish, will get something. Eventually. Yall know my fandoms. You can also request a snapshot from of the verses, like werewolf!Empires or The Used HS AU or whatever. I need something to occupy my mind while I'm at the lake today, hiding in the shade. :) (I can't promise when they'll get typed up; the fact I got a new car a couple weeks ago means I can't get a new laptop for like another month or so, and sharing the desktop is even more difficult when it's too hot to sleep.) (I have not read Dragonsoul, so anything related to that world has to be from the first two books.)

ohhh, wait. I can totally post snapshots!

So, I have several posts I've been meaning to make this weekend, and I also got run off the computer already today. I'm hoping to get back on after everyone else goes to bed & finish the awesome fic I'm betareading and get to work on some other things.

In the meantime, how about some long overdue ficlets? Mucho gracias to [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 for looking these over for me.

It has been so spectacularly nice here this weekend, yall. I love the warm weather, I am going to be sad if it goes back to freezing temperatures before it's actually spring.

I'm about to upload some pics to facebook and may throw a few on here as well, if anyone is interested. or needs to be warned for kid!pics, lol.

Here's what I need from yall though: (I know everyone is busy and stuff, but it never hurts to ask your friends for stuff, right?)

1. I was talking to [livejournal.com profile] wordsindreams one day and she asked about The Used and I said something about them being dirty boys. She asked if I meant "dirty" as in unclean or as in kinky. Obviously, the answer to that is both. And I intended to do a picspam for her but I've been so super busy. So, if you are a TU fan, would you link me to or share in comments some of your favorite dirty!Used pics?

2. HP fans! Or even if you're not an hp fandomer but know HP! Tell me who your favorite rare pair is! I have a bunch of drabble prompts that I'd love to write HP for b/c I miss it, but I don't want them all to end up being H/D. I've been writing Luna/Charlie for [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy and I wrote Luna/Draco (that still needs to be posted) for [livejournal.com profile] gelsey, so I'm curious as to what other pairings yall would be interested in. The only disclaimer (I think) is that I will only write Ron with Pansy, but idk if that counts as a rarepair since most of you know that's one of my favorite HP pairings. Oh, and I don't actually do next gen either.

3. WINCON. Who on my flist is going to wincon this year (other than [livejournal.com profile] wendy and [livejournal.com profile] exsequar, of course)? It's in CHICAGO, yall! I'm just curious, wanna know who I can plan on seeing this year.

4. Related to that, when is SPN coming back with new eps for this season? (let's not even talk about season 6, I'm still not sure how I feel about that)

Okay, I really do need to get this room in some type of order before dinner, which probably requires I get off the internet for a bit. <33333

I'm really bad at concert posts, but we'll try. :) I took Davey to see The Used in Charlotte last night. For anyone who doesn't know, Davey is my 8yo. He's completely ridiculous and full of himself and awesome (both my kids are awesome in their own ways, but Ronnie doesn't like music, which is why he didn't go - he and I are going to take a day and go to the aquarium in Baltimore in a few weeks, which is much more his thing) and has been asking me for about a year now to take him to see The Used. So, I took half a day off work, pulled him out of school early, and made the three hour drive to Charlotte.

We got to the venue about ten minutes or so before doors, and it was super cold and windy outside.

Davey freezing waiting in line for the doors to open )

There were these two teenies behind us in spaghetti strap tank tops whining about being cold. Um, put some clothes on? Idiots.

We made friends with the couple in front of us, though, they were pretty cool. Inside, there were three different tiers of standing room, so after a stop at the merch tables we staked out a spot by the railing in the center of the second tier.

Drive A was, as always, energetic and loud and fun and adorable. I quite adore them, as the use of "adorable" may imply, but really. I LOVE THE BABY BAND! There was a group of teenies behind us talking shit about them at one point, but then Davey turned around and glared at them (while singing along, of course) and they moved off somewhere. My kid is fierce, yall. *g*

a few pics of Drive A )

I really like the colors in some of those pics, lol. Maybe Davey will win another photography prize with his concert pictures this year at the Salem Fair.

Davey waiting between sets )

Davey did take a handful of pictures of Atreyu as well, but he wasn't quite as impressed with them. Maybe b/c I don't listen to them much? Idk.

pics of Atreyu )

Then we abandoned our spot and the guys next to us that kept spilling their beer, and went to the merch table to get Jason to sign Davey's Drive A poster. Jason was the only one out there at that time, although Taylor came out a little later and Bruno was around at the end of the show, but we never ventured back over.

Davey waiting impatiently for The Used )

The Used is so fucking awesome, yall. I <3 them. They actually didn't come right out and start with Blood on My Hands like I was expecting. Dan and Quinn and Jepha came out and were just fucking off playing random shit for several minutes before Bert came out. Bert made sure to tell us more than once it was his birthday. ("It's my fucking birthday; we'll play whatever the fuck song I want!" and "Fuck you, bitch, it's my fucking birthday!") The crowd did sing Happy Birthday to Bert, obviously, and Bert said something along the lines of thinking he was going to be another one who died at the age of 27 but fuck that he made it to 28. Which, obviously, all of us are glad for.

I didn't get pictures of The Used because I spent the entire set with Davey either on my back or on my shoulders. But to give you a bit of perspective of where we were, here's a picture of the stage before they came on )

Bert said that the night before he had been trying to convince Bruno to smoke pot with him and Bruno kept telling him no, so Bert finally tackeled that motherfucker and blew pot smoke into his mouth til he was fucked up. Then Bert said he really just wanted an excuse to put his lips on Bruno because Drive A is really fucking adorable. <3333333

At one point, Bert asked if anyone's pussy was getting wet and he immediately turned around and pointed at Jepha and was all "I know your's is", which obviously made my mind go straight to dirty. And I missed part of what he said to Dan after that b/c there was something about Dan's pussy being all dry and dusty. Idek about our boys, yall. <3

Davey was ridiculous. I really kinda wish someone had been with us to get a picture of him. He was on my back or on my shoulders just rocking out and singing along and attracting all kinds of attention, lol. I love my kid, yall. Fyi, Davey's favorite TU song is All That I Got (probably b/c it was the first one he actually heard/learned; you know how that one always stick with you?) and he was SO EXCITED that they played it.

Oh, and Dan knocked over his kit at the end of the show? He had almost knocked part of it over when they came back for their encore because he leaned over it to give Bert a hug, but at the end of everything, I think maybe he was trying to climb over it or something but ended up tripping over it and knocking like half of it over, so then he just kinda shoved the rest of it over? idek, yall.

Afterwards, we waited around for m&g. )

Davey and Jepha had a conversation about Perry the Platypus, and I didn't get to hear what he talked to Dan and Quinn about, but he made buddies with Bert and got Bert birthday hugs and that totally made Davey's night. He got them to sign his new Blood on my Hands tshirt and also his shoes. I got them to sign a onesie and Jepha kinda laughed when I set in on the table so I explained that my little sister found out she was pregnant just before we saw them in Baltimore back in the fall so technically the baby's first concert was The Used and Jepha was like "that's awesome! a little weird to think about, but awesome!" And Quinn signed it and was like "is this for your baby girl?" and so I repeated my story and he was like "awww!" and took the onesie back to write "the USED" on it and draw little lines that he said were a cloud. :)

pics of the shoes & the onesie )

And then I drove three hours home in heavy winds and blowing snow. boooooo!! But Davey had a great time, which is really what counts most, and it was definitely worth it. ♥

So, a few of us are having a Word Count Challenge to try and motivate one another to write something, and the first checkpoint is midnight EST. Prize has yet to be determined, and there will probably be a second part of the challenge tomorrow. We're just going by word count, it's not necessary that you actually post what you write. I'm obviously going to have a few hours of non productive time tonight so I'm trying to get ahead before I go out, but I'm failing just a little bit. Part of the problem is that since I'm working on my BBB, I keep looking for sections that I know I've written but that are not actually in my BBB file. I need these things for reference and cannot find them!

But I did find a drabble from a while back, so here. *shares*

"You are an old man, Jepharee," Bert tells him. "Old and grumpy. I'm gonna buy you an old man sweater and some slippers, maybe some viagra so you'll be less grouchy."

Jepha finds it really hard to take Bert seriously when he’s looking at him upside down, feet thrown over the arm of the couch and head hanging over the edge. Jepha doesn't point out that his mom gave him new slippers for Christmas, or that if he wanted an ugly old man sweater he would just steal one from Quinn, or that he definitely doesn't need the viagra. Really, he doesn't think it’s too much to ask that Dan and Quinn take their strangely physical drinking game somewhere other than the table where he has his books spread out, trying to brush up on his Japanese. It seems he forgets most of his words quicker than he learns them.

Bert probably knows what he’s thinking anyway. He’s wearing that smirky little grin that Jepha can admit is pretty endearing, even upside down. He flips off the couch – landing on his feet, like always, because Bert is apparently part cat and also still part gymnast. Jepha doesn't really want to know the wheres or whys behind Bert still practicing those skills.

Bert presses a smacking kiss to Jepha's cheek and whispers, "I still love you even if you are a grumpy old man."

Jepha smiles, even though that’s not a secret at all, and rolls his eyes. "Love you, too."

Per special request from [livejournal.com profile] phelixstar, and because The Used is currently my favorite (although Brendon Urie will ALWAYS be my favorite. ALWAYS.), I'm apparently gonna spam yall with pictures of Dan as well, even though his birthday is like 140 days off. To make it fair(er), I'm gonna try to post pics of Dan + Bert for the next couple weeks b/c Bert's birthday is actually next Thursday (which is the day I'm supposed to see them play in Charlotte, yay!).

Chilling in our room at the Showboat Casino with work!Amy & [livejournal.com profile] thebunnyknows. Tired but omg so happy. :) Despite the traffic & the slight freakout (yall have MET me, right? I freak out over ridiculous things), it was an awesome night. Did get to catch most of Drive A's set (baby band!), got to meet [livejournal.com profile] valerie_z & her friend, got to meet [livejournal.com profile] sinsense. Got hugs from said girls, as well as hugs passed on by them from [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie & [livejournal.com profile] apiphile. Quite possibly traumatized work!Amy since I didn't even mention fandom to her before today. THE USED! Do I even need to say that they put on a kick ass show? I didn't think so. Me & Amy & [livejournal.com profile] thebunnyknows bought the tour download cards (yes, again!) to meet the band & have them autograph the tshirt Amy got for herself & the hoodie she got for her hubby, and some girl gave [livejournal.com profile] sinsense their card so she was with us. Really, we all know I shouldn't talk to people anyway and that Quinn makes me flustered, and so of course Quinn was the first one in line. Whatever. I love them. <33333

[livejournal.com profile] sinsense is safely on a bus back home. I hope, anyway, b/c she is supposed to be. She is made of win, btw, and I am so so so glad to have gotten to see her tonight.

I uploaded all the pictures from my phone/the camera and picked out which ones I want to upload/share to facebook/lj, but I'm too lazy to actually do that tonight b/c it requires tagging them and stuff and I'm sleep and sore. Tomorrow, though!

Did yall see that The Used posted a new Q&A video?

Yall, I love them. Have I told you that lately? I already got most of my squee out via email, but really. QUINN!! and Jepha with his glasses! And Dan being Dan! <33333

Also, I love Travis Clark. His last tweet said "Alright, I'm gonna start a YouTube account and cover any songs that you guys want to hear on acoustic guitar...start requesting :)" and it made me think of seeing them on the TRRRGL tour, and after the show he was sitting outside the venue with his guitar playing whatever people wanted to hear. Their music isn't anything fabulous, but I really do love the boys in WTK, and they will forever be one of my favorites. Also, in my mind, they will always be [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy's boys.

I NEED HELP FROM YALL!! [livejournal.com profile] acidquill and I have been talking, and I need to know what yall think Sam Winchester has on his ipod. I mean, there are obviously some of the classic rock influences from Dean, but my personal canon is that there is some WWS and possibly some Kane on there (I think there was one fic centered around Sam being a fan of Chris Kane and them having to work a job that involved Chris? In the tradition of myself and [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, I believe it was something written via txt and never actually finished/shared, but the 'verse still exists in my head.). But we were debating what he's got on there. It's kinda hard, b/c there are things that I could think of as Sam music, but then I have to remember what was actually available to him when he was at Stanford, b/c I think that as a hunter he doesn't have much time or energy to keep up with the music scene. And she and I both believe there are songs on there that are Jess songs - ones that she put on there or ones that were her favorites or just ones that remind him of her. So, guys, help me out. WHAT'S ON SAM WINCHESTER'S IPOD?

So, I just typed up an lj post & went to post it & got an "oops" msg. Wtfh? Let's see if I can remember it.

DAN WHITESIDES IS TOTALLY TINY! HE WOULD TOTALLY FIT IN THE TRUNK! I was actually gonna tweet yesterday about how we were cleaning out the trunk so we could kidnap a drummer, but I figured it could possibly misconstrued. Or properly construed, whatever. (Also, I have no idea how to spell "construed" lol)

I'm not quite sure why [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow and I don't have a Dan sandwich (b/c he would totally fit!), but I guess it's for the best. I wouldn't wanna deprive those of you who haven't seen them yet of Dan. Even if Dan the Man Who Can cannot toss a drumstick in the air and catch it 2/3 of the time. Although, at the Dallas show we watched him break a drumstick, toss it over his shoulder, and grab another one to keep going without ever missing a beat. HOT. Fucking drummers, idek.

I'm not gonna go into actual concert recaps, but I'll hit the highlights?

Got to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] wendy on Thursday. And her puppies. I really wish she lived closer to me or vice versa because hanging out with her is always fabulous and she is the awesomest of the awesome. Also, she got a call with a job offer like right as she was coming to pick me up, so YAY WENDY! And I find myself saying "interesting" as an acknowledgement statement, which is totally a wendy-thing. :)

We went to lunch with [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow and her sister [livejournal.com profile] shamrocks15, and then later I met up with them to go get lost in Dallas before we found the HoB.

I still think Drive A is adorable. Even more adorable was the fact that their grandparents were at the Dallas show. Seriously, cutest thing EVER.

I have nothing amusing or positive to say about The Almost other than the fact that they soundtracked the tambourine.

THE USED. Yeah, I love them. <3333 Um. Quinn's hair was all sticking up everywhere and there was some red lighting on the stage that made him look like he had little devil horns. He is precious, btw. Um. There was Bert creeping [livejournal.com profile] shamrocks15 out with his crazy Michael Jackson hat. And Jepha being hot sticky sex. Or, you know, being Jepha. And Quinn quinncerting himself into the Dan\Jepha OTP, which made [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow all "Back the fuck off, Allman!" and highly amused me.

We were gonna stalk the buses afterward but there was this random older man there who had skipped bail to bring his daughter to the concert & get her barrier. And he was talking to his girlfriend on the phone, trying to get other people to tell her to fuck her husband and come see him instead.

Oh, and before the show we saw Dan and some of the other guys playing kickball behind the venue. :)

[livejournal.com profile] shamrocks15 is pretty damn awesome, I'm glad to have met her. Praise Jesus! Also, there were four twelve of them motherfuckers, I shit you not!

Friday, me and [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow drove from Dallas to Houston (without getting lost!) and plotted (hahaha) ridiculous fic (SHUT UP AND TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS!) and talked about fic that needs to be finished and talked about other random shit. And we got passed by Drive A in their little van. In my head that totally means they had to hang out in Dallas to have lunch with their grandparents and then haul tail to make it to Houston on time.

Met up with [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 & [livejournal.com profile] vic_ramsey & Cody-whose-lj-idk[livejournal.com profile] mercurybard (thanks [livejournal.com profile] arielchan!). And [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface joined us later. We found seats in the balconey with an awesome view. Drive A is still adorable, fyi. They aren't a band that would have ever caught my interest if I hadn't seen them live, but I really adore them right now.

Bert McCracken is CRAZYCAKES and TINY and ADORABLE. Seriously, he reminds me of one of those little yappy dogs that things they're big deal. He told us about his itchy balls, and did a little Michael Jackson dance, and told everyone that if they didn't have the album to go out and steal that shit from Walmart & say he said it was all cool, and was generally adorable and entertaining. And he let Quinn talk which... ahaha, no. Oh Quinn. <3 Oh, and he had Dan drumming out random shit. That was pretty amusing. Dan and Jepha are still hot. Color me surprised.
After the show, we waited for M&G. Heather bought one of the tour album download card things & I still had mine from the Baltimore show. Only one person was allowed per card, so [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow had to wait outside for us & I told her I'd get my card signed for her. We were told they had black and silver sharpies so Heather was going to get them to sign her hoodie. So we go in and Quinn had a black sharpie & was signing my card with it & we asked him and he was like "no, we're out of silver ones" even though there were like six on the table and Heather asked if they could make their autographs stand out and Bert just jumped into their conversation and was like "sure we can make them stand out!" (and Dan tossed Quinn a silver sharpie & Quinn was like "it's probably out, it's only good for like 30 signings." Oh my god. Quinn, I'm fondly amused of you being a grumpy difficult bitch with an adorable grin, and also proud of you for making complete coherent sentences.) and so I moved on to Jepha, who was sitting on the other end of the table and we were making small talk while he signed my card & he was like "you're missing a couple people on here" b/c I only had Quinn & his autographs. So I told him Heather was a line jumper & he was like "Damn you, Heather!" And Heather had no idea what we were talking about, she just heard us say her name, so that was even more amusing.

We also caught up with Dan outside by the buses for pictures. HE IS REALLY SO SO TINY! OMG! [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow told him not to drink in her picture, and Dan had to tell me how to work the camera because I'm retarded. And then [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 & I got pictures too.

And we went for food & went home to [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000's house and [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow & I were acting like giggly 13yo girls and also tweeting each other from the same bed.

Okay, now we're having fangirl hang times and I'm gonna go steal [livejournal.com profile] eckerlilas's baby from [livejournal.com profile] vic_ramsey and hold him. :)
