Happiness in my day today

I woke up early and wasn't pissed about it; there was perfect weather today; Emily was in a great mood; I got basic chores done without incident; I got some painting done so Em's room is complete; I had some sunning at the pool, and a good friend come over to hang.

Gah!  Just remembered that the RUDE neighbors (who, incidentally, are on the "Welcoming Committee") are STILL cutting the vines off MY fence.  I hung up a sign that says "Stop cutting the vines off my fence."  Jeez!  They are pretty and smell good, and I have a 6 inch clearance from the fence to their property!!  I'm going to plant stink weed next year.

Other than that, terrific day.  Ate a phenominal apple.  Seriously.  It was a Gravenstein.  Made the whole house smell good.  My local conservative paper was disgusted by the Republican National Convention, so maybe people are starting to come around.  Good stuff!!

To top it off, read this ( http://www.mcsweeneys.net/2004/9/1reproductiveopenletter.html ) on www.McSweenys.net and laughed my ass off.  Everyone on my Flist seems to be having a good health day, and I found some great stories on Checkmated that are keeping me occupied while Mr. Stoney is away for work.  Hope all my friends who had the first day back at school today survived!

*kisses and pinches you all*

Hey Sugar Booger! Kids back in school today?
You bet on the link. Hee hee! Love the smart assed humor.

www.Checkmated.com is a site dedicated to Harry Potter ships, mainly Ron and Hermione. I love them as much as Spuffy, which says a lot. it's the sweet angst and discovery of love that makes me giggle and sigh. The one I'm hooked on as it has a terrific plot and great lovin' is called The Price of Love by RogueSugah. AFFN has a good Harry/Hermione story called 14 Days of Christmas by ResistResist. both are well written and have enough angsty love to make me ache.

How are you today? (tonight?)

Doh. "Hey Laura! There are other hmeispheres aside from yours!" Natch you're off during your SUMMER. Derp.

I have also found a website called RestrictedSection.org that has a handful of good HP fics. Most are short and operate under the principle that harry loves Ginny and doesn't realize it yet, Ron and Hermione love each other, and Snape doesn't do anyone. I concur. no Draco/Snape pairings, please. Not for me, at any rate. Go read! Tell me what you think!! (The best ship ever is still McGonagall and Neville. True Love! http://www.livejournal.com/users/stoney321/15592.html#cutid1)

Seriously: a phenominal apple will make any day better.
I find a sixer of Coke and bean dip really gets my writing juices flowing. I've written a few fanfics, but I suck at cannon. I can write nice little stories, but I can't immitate Joss. I've decided to give it up and just read everyone else's. I write for myself about crazy southerners and my jacked up family. You know: comedy! You and ol' El Blanco Nino write some good stuff. His Anya story made me laugh out loud, and you write some might fine Spander.

Okay. Took notes. (1) "the mockney" Ha Ha!!! (2) spoofing one of the funnier books, Princess Bride (3) among all of the snark, you through in REALLY fine smut. I haven't been able to get through all your fics yet, so I'm glad you sent me that one. You know, the voice is really good. Now it is in the top 2 parody fics of all time.

As for pimping, I got burned pretty bad by someone who is dedicated to cannon and read a few sentences of my fics before puking on them. If you don't like the bodies of Spike, Buffy and Angel doing non-Joss things, don't go there. If you like AU, maybe check mine out sometime. AFFN, Author: Stoney (duh). Au Contraire, Au Pair is fluffy Spuffy, but I have to say as a story I like it. Not cannon, and it's William. As In: To Swing? is a shameless jab at Angel and my husband. Wait!! Did I say that out loud? I think it has a nice structure and hot sex. I'll run and hide now, shall I?

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.
