Random Things Of Happy

  • Seeing my bluebonnets pop up out of the ground. And everything else, but *points to self* Texan through and through. The only thing better than bluebonnets are my yellow roses.

  • Cool banners for my RPG. Check it out! *loves our Jen Aniston for several reasons, but this one especially today*

  • Random, out of the blue phone calls from friends like my Kaka Ako, who I've missed terribly.

  • AWESOME MUSIC MAGAZINES in the mail, complete with DVDS and CDS inside (Paste Mag.), a lovely gift from my Kaka Ako, for the record. (Seriously! How cool is that?)

  • My younger sister who has been cracking me the hell up, and also keeping me sane.

  • SUNSHINE. (*sings: Texas, Our Texas...*)

  • My Ru

  • Getting a random comment for a fic I wrote over a year ago, with someone desperate for more. (The Ewan/Hayden RPS)

  • Getting hardline Joss fans to read outside their comfort zone and trying something else I've written. (For those that have read my stuff outside of Jossverse, thanks. I'm a sucker for feedback, ain't even gonna lie.)

  • Tanned feet. (what? I kinda have pretty feet. They're better with a tan. It's a thing.)

  • Returning health to my home skillet - also: Sundays. She gets it.

  • Teaching myself how to make a torrent. *cough* If anyone needs help finding something, just, you know, ASK. (I'm on the Pirate Bay under my user name here.)

  • MILAGRO SILVER. I made an icon! *GIP* Feel free, should you want it. I don't know WHY, since my icon skilz are weak.

I'm sure I'll think of more. TODAY IS A GLORIOUS DAY! No, really! It is! Well, it will be if you MAKE it one! *sends positive beams to the world*

GOD, see, your icon makes me want a margarita. Even though it's FREEZING outside and also it's not even 10am.

*rubs hands together with GLEE*

You know you want my crappy icon. YOU KNOW IT. There should be a cheap flight to Dallas from Anywhere, USA for the sole purpose of having me pick up the traveler, take them to a good Tex-Mex dive, and ply that person with good tequila and quesadillas.

IT IS WHAT MAKES LIFE WORTH LIVING. Or, you know... a bad day better. Hello, Swm. *beams warmth to you*

I LIKE MY ONCE-FORMERLY BLACK EYES THAT ARE NOW DARK BROWN. Do NOT say chocolate. They aren't. They are the color of COFFEE DREGS. Mmmmm.

Why is the wind kicking up JUST as I'm getting ready to go play outdoors? The world? She is a cruel bitch. I am going to the meat market and gettin' some crawpuppies fer a boil t'nite. Mmmmm, mmmm!

I remember being in school in Utah, finding a creek on a hike that was CRAWLING with crawdads, catching a bucket full and watching everyone run away in horror. THE ONLY GIRLS that would eat them with me (and seriously: SO MANY) were my Japanese and Chinese roommates. THEY UNDERSTOOD GOOD EATING.

This has nothing to do with anything other than YUM FOOD. I need to add that to my list.

*looks at all of this raw chicken I cut up fer giggin'*

They hell, Sue? Bacon is for EATING. Did you bring the crab boil? New potoatoes? Split cobs?
Mar. 21st, 2006 09:07 am (UTC)
*buts in*

Chicken? For crawfish giggin'? What in the cat hair? That's way too expensive, darlin' - you's gonna need that money to build a wig lean-to onto my Hollywood Will's Backyard Home.

Now, you pick you up a pound 'o Korn King bacon, and them crawdads will just crawl up yore line.

Hey, everybody have you seen my balls they're big and salty and BROWN?

HI! (Also: yikes on the mega cyclone! I'm stoopid - is that near you? Are you well?)
Mar. 21st, 2006 09:14 am (UTC)
Cyclone Larry was in FNQ (Far North Queensland). If FNQ = New Orleans, I'm in the equivalent of Canada. Except warmer and with less mooses. We have the most boring weather in the world, I'm happy to say ... rain is big news. Sometimes it's a bit windy. Larry blew down our entire national banana crop! What a pig!

I HAVE NOT READ YOUR NEW FICS YET and I feel like a Bad Friend. Spank me. Harder. Oh, yeah.

(Blame Blizzard. They make me spend all my free time playing Warcraft. Honest.)

Chocolate orbs with a teaspoonful of Cream of Cum stirred in?

Ow! Ow! Bloody hell, you've got strong hands.
Mar. 21st, 2006 09:25 am (UTC)
YOU SHOULD READ THEM. Or you know... not. :D *cries in a corner where no one can SEE ME*

Okay, so you are not wounded, etc. GOOD TO KNOW. Also, HELLO!!

*flexes strong hands*

Coffee dregs?
My once-formerly brown eyes were puppy-dog brown because they were the exact same color as our black lab/mix dog.
Now they are green.
I'm actually going to have to change my eye color on my DL next time I renew. They let you do that, right?
Mar. 21st, 2006 04:21 pm (UTC)
Are crawdads the same as crawfish?
I had crawfish for the very first time a couple weeks ago when my friend's boyfriend who was originally from New Orleans had his annual Mardi Gras Crawfish feed. I wasn't sure at first about eating something that looked like an alien, but they were yummy!
Mar. 21st, 2006 04:23 pm (UTC)
YES. Crayfish are their actual name, but we all call them:
mud puppies
rock lobster.

It's LOBSTER. But wee. Which means I love them. I love ALL things WEE. NUMMMMMMMMMMM.

*simpers* Me, too.
WHOA. Way to go.

You can find it at any grocery store. Check the LaChoy Means Chinese Food section. By the way? That's a lie. It doesn't mean that. AT ALL.
Mar. 21st, 2006 08:55 am (UTC)
Ewan/Hayden was a year ago? OMG. It's very fresh in my mind.

Them bluebonnets sound very nice. You do know I'm not gonna get flowers for like, another month, right? I miss early springs.

::squishes you and gives you nail polish to set off your tanned footses::
Mar. 21st, 2006 09:05 am (UTC)
Hello! Heeee! I just picked up some sea salts to give myself a pedicure later so I can paint the nails... Only the feet, though. (I think my hands look weird with nail polish. A bit too girly for me.) And so you know: taupes. No pinks or reds. It's a thing.

It WAS. I started re-reading that fic and found SOOOO many problems. I need to rewite entire passages and repost. (and maybe finish it up...) HI SUSI!
Mar. 21st, 2006 10:28 am (UTC)
Hi honey! I was doing the same thing (re-writing and getting into the groove) when the powercord to my laptop broke. So now I'm using Jeff's spare laptop (he bought a new one Saddidy) and pouting A LOT.

AND, I was writing my first slashy explicit scene, too! Grrr. Now I can't get it off the compy 'cause it's dead. ::pouts::
Mar. 21st, 2006 10:31 am (UTC)
Gorrram COMPY!! *burninates* You wanna know why you're in my top ten? Because you get all my home star jokes.


*kicks Compy nine times*
Mar. 21st, 2006 11:38 am (UTC)
My brother! I mean my computer! Waaaah!
You got the heart of a champeen! ::snif:: L'il Brudder!

You're in my top ten 'cause you are able to make me snort beverages out my nose, yet demure, and you get all my singin' stuff.

I keep TRYING to sign up for writer con, but my browser doesn't match with the thingy and I CAN'T. BUT I'LL BE THERE!!! And more, 'cause I have to visit myfambly, too. I mean, it's like my sister's birthday and all.

Hey, did I ever tell you that my youngest nephew wrote the email that spawned "Japanese Cartoon?" He's so cool.

OH! Have to tell you about watching Swordsman 3 with the WORST SUBTITLES EVER. Like, the Star Wars bablefish level badness.

*man flies into air towards enemy* "BINGO!"
*enemy flies into air towards man* "DISMISS!"

AWESOME. And can Brigette Lin be ANY HOTTER? Wow.
Mar. 21st, 2006 09:35 am (UTC)
*flashes icon*
Ahaha! That just makes my day. Bad translations are totally a crack staple.

So funneh. 'specially when they yell, all serious and stuff.

I remember this one: this guy was yelling (something, think it was "Kill!") and the subtitles showed "KWAAAAAAN!!!"

Mar. 21st, 2006 09:37 am (UTC)
GLAH. Oh! Speaking of icons, have made a "good pillow" icon and others, will zip up and email, should you want.

Another good one: "I am scare to be alone. I scare you will not returned."

(Although it was cool that I could listen in Traditional, Mandarin, or Cantonese as well as Japanese. This did not affect the subtitles.)
Mar. 21st, 2006 09:42 am (UTC)
Oh man, I wish you could borrow bootlegs over here. Hours and hours of crack. They say "fuck". A lot. Because the machine sometimes interprets "to do" as getting busy (Chinese has a lot of homonyms).


Mar. 21st, 2006 09:45 am (UTC)
Hahaha! And "shit." I like that this is an ancient story with translations like: "Shit! A submarine!"


*goes to your thoughtfully produced link and feels greater joy*

That Jen Anistonmun must be a WONDERFUL and SWEET and GLORIOUS person. I bet she feeds the homeless at the weekends and cures poorly animals in her free time with nothing but the beauty of her smile.

Gosh, I wish I had a friend like her. She's awesome.
Mar. 21st, 2006 09:42 am (UTC)
*looks around and drops voice to a whisper* Okay, really? She's a bit... yeeeesh. You might want to look out for her. I've heard... things.

Mar. 21st, 2006 10:09 am (UTC)
The thing about the donkey, the roll of industrial strength sticky tape, Tom Cruise and a can of squirty cream? Or the thing about the bowling shoes, Lance Armstrong and the dead sea scrolls? Because I heard that was all just a misunderstandig and all charges were dropped.
Mar. 21st, 2006 10:28 am (UTC)
No, I was thinking about the ...


Hello, Miss Aniston. you have the most perfect hair in the world and you have really, really, really good comic timing.

HELLO!! Oooh, tonight's dinner is when you get to wear your pretty new clothes, right? Hooray!

(They use lima beans because they are big and more dramatic when the seed coat splits. WHY they don't use peas - who doesn't like peas?)

Ask Evan if he wants to learn about Vermiculture. Aunt Laura wants another victim pupil to train up for further science classes... :D
Mar. 21st, 2006 10:13 am (UTC)
Did ya see the pic I posted yesterday? We may still have snow, but I also have green things poking up!

Getting hardline Joss fans to read outside their comfort zone and trying something else I've written.
I'm not a hardline Joss fan... It's just my first love. I never ever ever ever read fan fic or pr0n online before my little Spike addiction. So reading other stuff is like the first time you kiss a different boy, or the first time you give someone a blow job, or the first time you're in an threesome... You know, different and scary, but you might like it! :)
Mar. 21st, 2006 10:29 am (UTC)
I did! Plants make me HAPPY.

(cough, and um... that was for about four of you. :D And thanks again!)
Mar. 21st, 2006 04:30 pm (UTC)
Plants make me HAPPY. I know! *squish*
My roomate is insisting that those plants are daffodils even though I've never had a daffodil pop up its little head. I have tulips! And irises! (irisii?) and then at the end of the summer I have surprise lilies. If they are daffodils they have never ever bloomed since we moved in 6 years ago.

cough, and um...
Did I succeed in making Stoney go WTF? hee hee. I've actually only done two of those three things. I'll let you decide which two you think it is.

that was for about four of you. :D
You're just corrupting your whole friends list, aren't you? Do you watch the show House? Because I could probably also force myself to read House/Wilson fic...

And thanks again! You're welcome! I wouldn't read it if it was crap!
Mar. 21st, 2006 01:24 pm (UTC)
*cries outright*

WAAAAH!!!! I still can't see the banner.
Mar. 21st, 2006 01:33 pm (UTC)
wait... what? Did you set your LJ to block other pics? Or use a marker?

(if you go to the tree fort, she's posted two versions there, which is where I picked it up)
Mar. 21st, 2006 01:54 pm (UTC)
I didn't set mine to do nothin'.

She emailed me links to them, so I gotted to see them now.
Mar. 22nd, 2006 12:11 pm (UTC)
question for you...

where would I have gone to set my lj to block other pics? all my ljs seem to be defaulted to not let me see certain pictures and i don't see where it would allow me to change whatever setting it is that's stopping me.
Mar. 22nd, 2006 12:44 pm (UTC)
Hey! Okay, go to the edit your personal info page: http://www.livejournal.com/editinfo.bml

then scroll towards the bottom where it gives you the option of checking a box so you can "use placeholders for images" in posts. If this isn't checked, then I have no idea what's going on with the pic blockage...
Mar. 22nd, 2006 01:03 pm (UTC)
well, it wasn't checked (that must be default because I never unchecked it), but still nothing.
Mar. 22nd, 2006 01:26 pm (UTC)
ok, i'm giving up now. it's only certain pictures it happens with and when i have that thing clicked it fucks up all the pictures i used to be able to see just fine.

oh well.
Mar. 21st, 2006 01:59 pm (UTC)
Hi Stoney! Bluebonnets are purty! And I am off to track down the Ron Burgundy thing, which I can't remember the name of, because I need something funneh! Also quite possibly food. Can I come over for the crawpuppies thingy? *bats eyelashes*
Mar. 21st, 2006 02:26 pm (UTC)
CLEEK! Also, re: crawdads. COME ON. Off to pick them up RIGHT NOW.

(Fish is cool? I have too many veggie friends! I can't remember who eats what!)
Mar. 21st, 2006 02:30 pm (UTC)
Yay for linkities!!!!

I eat fish, yes. And dairy. It's hard for me to imagine giving up fish, because we ate that more than regular meat growing up, and it's such a staple of the Greek side of the family and then the New England locale where I was raised. And somehow it seems to me better to eat harvested fish instead of animals that are bred on farms and in pens and...yes.

But who knows, maybe one day I will stop eating it. Some types of seafood I've never liked (clams/oysters, yuck), and other types I can eat on occasion but not often (lobster/crabs/shrimp -- they look too animal-like to me, and sometimes taste too meaty). But most other fish I eat happily and...yes, that is the long answer. :D

Oh I just started my first issue of Paste as well. It's SUCH a interesting mag. I'm so glad to be getting into it :)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
