[info]millieweasley tagged me, and seeing as how otherwise I'd be doing no updates...

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. I don't tag.  Feel free to do this if you'd like.
4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

The facts, ma'am )

List time!

1 - Didn't like [info]hp_fridayfive or [info]fannish5 today, so no entry there...

2 - Huge hugs to [info]littlecup, who had her baby yesterday.

3 - Job news--went to an interview for a temp job today.  I'll be working in the tallest building in Seattle (formerly known as the Columbia Center) on the 34rd floor.  I'm working for a real estate insurance company.  A bit nervous about it, because it could be stressful, but we'll see...  Means I'll be more available during the weekends now.

Mods for [info]hpficlist, I'll still be available in the evenings if there are problems.  But I'll likely take Saturdays or Sundays for my day until this is over.

RP people, particularly those of you outside the states, I'm afraid this means most of my gaming will be in the evening as well, or weekends.  If there's a particular plot you would like to do, just let me know, and we can talk it out in emails at the very least.  I will try to stay active as much as possible.

4 - Speaking of [info]hpficlist, it's been kind of quiet the last few days, but there are lots of links to follow, and I'm about to go add a few more ships I saw that could be added...  Please come check us out?  It won't be much of a resource without links to follow, right?

5 -*whines* I want season 4 of QAF, already!  And Sims: Seasons, too!  Oh, well, at least I'll have job money I can use for it... :D

6 - Still planning on doing a book review, just not sure what and when.  But it is coming.

Master Post of Oh Dear Lord...

Yeah, so it's been a while since I posted, so it's time for another mega-post about everything I have to share. :D

HP:
I have been going nuts writing lately, but I think I'm approaching the end of my fic for Draco's birthday.  Then I'll have to start my next [info]daily_deviant piece,  I'm thinking I'll do Sirius/Draco. :D  Wish me luck....  Also, I wrote an AU story that I finished last year, and promised a sequel on.  I got several reviews yesterday that finally pushed my interest over the edge.  And I do have most of the prologue finished.  I have one beta, but I've found that more betas is better betaing, so if anyone wants to read through the orginal and/or hold my hand through the sequel, I'd love you forever.  It's a Harry raised by the Malfoys fic, year by year.

RP has been lots of fun, but there's so much going on that it's hard to keep up.  Blaise has been in a steady relationship for two months as of yesterday (OMG!), George is having a bit of a crisis because he's realized his feelings for Fred are a bit more than brotherly, Padma's still in no-man's land, and hasn't really played yet.... (Jessi, I'm looking at you.  Are you up to a thread together?)  And Remus has been having more sex than he ever dreamed he would, but he's having a few jealousy issues...

My RP Characters' pictures, if anyone's curious. :D )

And now that LMOM over at [info]pervy_werewolf is over, [info]i_love_looshie will pick up.  A lot looser.  You can post anything from the past twelve months that has to do with the lovely Malfoy Patriarch.  I'm still trying to decide what to post, but I will definately be posting something each day. :D  Even if it's just the best of VC.  But the offer's only good through June, so watch and/or post now! :)

And big hugs to [info]lysa1, who knows why.   Hope it's all going well, hon. :D

A small bit of RL, too.

Tried to upgrade my computer a bit, but failed miserably.

The drawbridge right next to my workplace is being shored up because it's about 100 years old, so all the busses have been rerouted, so I now have to speed-walk five blocks uphill each night, so if I'm less than vocal when I get home, you know why.  At least I'll loose some weight, right?

My old alma matter is being thoroughly killed by the Seattle school system.  I truly believe that if it weren't for their rediculous system, it would still be an active and thriving alternative school.  But it was barely that when I left, so why should I be surprised it's gone downhill this much?  It just makes me angry, that's all. :(

Oh, and No, I'm not putting in my picture to the Fanartists Vs. Fanficcers, Anniversary Edition.  If I did, I'd lose us the battle. ;P  If you want to see me (and have me friended, cause it's flocked), I'm here.  Or you can see these...
          
Ickle me w/Rose       Ickle me w/Mom        Another Ickle me     And big Sister me
                                     & Grandma                                                      w/Ickle Sis

Valentines for my flist

To those I adore in RL )

To my Moonlight crew )

And ten more just cause I can )

I know not everyone's on there, but well, 155 people is a heck of a lot.  But I love you all.  Let me just say that you all make my flist a lovely place to be, and I hope you all have a Happy Valentine's day. :)

It's snowing!

And I don't want to hear any jokes from the peanut gallery about snow in Seattle.  It doesn't snow here often enough for the city to shell out money for snowplows or good emergency equiptment, so when it snows, everything in Seattle stops, particularly because of those who have moved here from states that never get snow...

But!  I love snow, particularly when I'm home and warm, especially cause I live right next to the grocery store, so it's just a quick walk if we realize we need something.

It's 32 degrees and dropping, and the snow's thick and sticking! :D

Oh, and this is the closest to a snow Icon I had...  I need a winter icon bad.  Not a Christmas one, but a Winter one. :)

NaNo update

I'm still on schedule, though I had hoped I would be ahead right now.  Nothing to post today as far as NaNo goes, but I hope you'll enjoy the first part of the fic I just posted below... ;)

Spent the day with [info]turtle_avenger, and things went extremely well.  Right up to the moment after I got home and started looking for my phone to turn it off.  It's gone.  No idea if I'll ever get it back, and to be honest, it's really bothering me.  Money's tight, which means no replacement until I get a good-paying job, and that means I won't be able to talk to anyone until I've been at the job for at least a month... :(  Not a happy camper.

Anyway, big plans for tomorrow--At least 2000 words on NaNo, a new Velvet Captivity drabble, and finishing chapter 2 of Five Times Out.  I can do it.  Really.  It's not that much.

General babble

So, Unclamed Bonds isn't cooperating this week.  I managed to get the baby born, but that was about it.  Why do I always balk at the sex scenes?  Yeesh. 

Maybe it's cause I'm just so distracted by the shiny of the Lucius/Harry...  I'm currently working on part 9, which is, as of this moment, even though unfinished, currently the longest in the series, at over 800 words so far.  It will also be the highest-rated.  Still not sure if I'm sticking to R, or going all the way to NC-17.  I think it'll depend on whether or not it sounds good when I write it R.

~~~

Visited with a friend today, was lots of fun.  She got me a Yuki plushie for my birthday.  He's so cute.  The look on his face.  You can just hear him saying, "Stupid Cat..."

~~~

Stay tuned for a post about my LJ Rec Anniversary.

Life Update

So, birthday party yesterday...

Bought too much food, but [info]oni_anne made us all lumpia, which we quickly devoured, and there were tons of games.  It was just great seeing everyone, and getting to talk.  I would have liked to play a few more games, but oh, well.  Maybe another time.

Bought a cheesecake, which was barely touched, but it's gone to a good home... ;D

I'm slightly bummed that I didn't get the cake I wanted, but I have no rl slasher friends, so I would have been the only one enjoying it.  Maybe someday...

Hubby's birthday today. We went to Patty's Eggnest for breakfast, then came back, and he opened his presents. Hubby seemed to be quite pleased with them, if a little concerned that I got him the same thing his mother might have. Guess we'll see tonight. Then he spent about an hour or so playing Ratchet and Clank 3. But he says he's not allowed to play any more of that until he's finished 2. He wants to finish it by the time 4 comes out in the next couple of months.

Gah. Can we just stop the world now? I really don't want to be 36. 35 was bad enough. If anyone cares, I'll probably be hiding from the world tomorrow, except for dinner with my folks.

Also, starting to pack for Cali. :) This should be fun, though I'm a bit skittery at the thought of getting on an airplane... I haven't been on a plane since 92. But it should be fun. Leaving Wednsday night, coming back Monday. I'm just trying to decide how much stuff that is. :)

----

As I'm going through my old recs to post them to the recs journal, I'm finding broken links, so if anyone knows the location of any of these fics, I'd be most appreciative... If you know the author's taken it down permenantly, that knowledge would be appreciated as well.

Missing Fics -- Please Help )

That's everything at the moment. There may be more later.

----

Also, I am slowly posting my fics over at:



If any of the authors on my flist would like an invite, let me know. I'd love to see you there. It's a multi-fandom archive, so more than just HP is welcome. :D

I've been meme-tagged!

to write 20 random facts about me. And to tag as many people as it takes me minutes to write the list.

I will not tag, but anyone who would like to is welcome to do the meme. :)

Random facts about me )

Update

I'm wiped.  Just posted 16 recs over at my recs journal today, all adult...  And all have either Remus or Severus or both in them. 

And I was even more excited last night when I finally checked out The Archive, and [info]nimori had posted Blaze of Noon there (which I keep wanting to type Blaise... :P), which I absolutely adore, so that's in my recs today.

Getting ready for my party Sunday.  Cake's off, cause it's so expensive, and money's getting a bit tight, and I'm the only one who'd really appreciate it anyway...  But I'm looking forward to spending time with everyone, particularly [info]firesika, who I haven't seen for a very long time.  Think we've got enough food coming, and I know we'll have plenty to play. :D

Also, getting ready for my trip to Cali. :D  That should be lots of fun.  [info]maydela and I are planning on checking out the Winchester Mystery House, which should be fun.  And she's talking about getting Nightlife while I'm there so I can drool about it.  Then I'll have to come back and get myself a job so that I can afford a good upgrade to my computer so I can actually play it... ;D

And, I need to work on my absentee ballot this weekend, since I won't be back until the day before the primary...

Busy, busy.

Please cheer me up....

I had a bad fight with a good friend yesterady that I'm having trouble dealing with, and the game I want to play doesn't seem to want to work any more.

London....

Think I've seen posts from most if not all the Londoners on my flist.  Glad you're all okay, I hope this hasn't touched you in more than in a passing way.  I am horrified and saddened by this, and I hope we never see anything like this again.

All my thoughts are with you all today.

Strange day (rl

It's being a very strange day, in many ways not so great.

Sending good thoughts to Foodie & [info]turtle_avenger.  Take care, both of you.

Had almost no work when I arrived this morning, so my two supervisers scrambled all morning trying to figure out what to give me to do, so I decided to leave early, to give them more time to work on things.

Went to Westlake Mall and got stuff for Foodie's bday present for next month...been certain what I wanted to get for her as soon as I thought of it.  But she might get it early if she needs a cheer-up tonight...  Suffice to say that it's fandom related. :D

Coming back upstairs, I ran into my old supervisor from the big N for a second.  She was always cool.  It was nice to see her.  I may have to stop by sometime and actually visit with them again.  And I never do that.

Okay, so fandom stuff...
I never do song-fics (I'm sure they'd suck if I did).  But I now have three song-fic ideas stuck in my head.  So, if anyone wants these, I'd love to see them written...

The first is actually a Star Trek Voyager idea:
It's a Chakotay/Janeway story, using the lrycs to Take a Chance on Me

The second is using a new favorite song of mine:
Harry/Draco, using the lyrics to Aqualung's Strange and Beautiful.  In particiular focusing on the Chorus:
I'll put a spell on you,
You'll fall asleep and I'll put a spell on you.
And when I wake you,
I'll be the first thing you see, lyricstop
And you'll realise that you love me.

The  third and final is based on an old  Tom Lehrer song:
I see this one as Snape/Lupin, though I suppose it could be any Snape Ship, really.  The song itself is N Apostrophe T, which is from his days writing songs for the Electric Company.  It's a great song, and it fits Snape eerily well.

Please, please, pretty please? :D

Lovely things afoot, apparently

So, my husband got home Tuesday night, and the moment he turned on his computer, our connection shut off.  So he spent the entire rest of the evening trying to convince Comcast to admit there was a problem.  Yesterday I sat here at home and waited for the tech to come check out our connection.  She told me in no uncertain terms, that it was not just us, that lots of people were having the problem, and that Comcast was just being coy about it.  Even to their techs.  Cute.  Like they think that'll help solve the problem.  So, she showed me what to do to get the connection working again (I don't want to go into the details, cause I don't really understand it myself, and I'd garble it horribly.),  and I set about pressing the same keys trying to get a connection until six, when my friend came up for dinner, and we proceeded to watch Vicar of Dibley (she'd only seen the first episode), and then Lost.  After she left, I tried again, and lo and behold, it worked! :D  So, I have connection again, but unfortunately I had a date with my aunt and grandmother, so it's taken me this long just to really get caught up.

Ring report

I have it.  It is on my hand.  Pre announced visits are welcome. :D
