Pimping and well wishes

Happy Birthday to a2zmom, who has been absent of late, but hopefully she'll see this. Hope you're well, R.

Pimp, the first: A very dear friend of mine, Yen Tan, is a director and movie producer who wrote and directed the very moving Ciao. It's about two friends finding love when one's lover dies. It won all sorts of awards, not just in the LGBT community, but in festivals around the globe. He's working on a new movie, and it's another quiet and lovely film about two parallel lives of two gay men in Texas. He says it's the story he's been wanting to tell for years, and he's looking for donations of any size to get it made. This is one that can go to Sundance and Cannes, and it's an important story. Maybe consider supporting it? At least go check out Ciao, you won't regret it. (Note: all funds are going to the production costs. I'm almost 100% that the actors are doing this for free. it means a lot to the people involved.)

Pimp, the second: my personal drug dealer flaming_muse (drug of choice: Klaine, and I'm not ashamed to admit it) has written another FitB story explaining the ending to the most recent episode, so heads up for spoilers to 3.3 if you've not seen it yet. I love how she writes them, and i have a sneaky suspicion that RIB follow her fics. No, really. Celebrations, PG. Read, feed.

Pimp the third, and it's self serving: Jersey Shore recap is up, and guys, THEY BROKE A DOUBLE MAGNUM OF CHIANTI. I wept, won't lie.

Pimp, the fourth, also self serving, I wrote fic yesterday! (Glee, Kurt-centric, general rating) And it's serious and sad and sweet and I love it, even if no one else does. *cry* How a boy grows up and keeps the memory of his deceased mother with him. So, yeah. Little sad in places. I cleared out the blood sweat and tears and hopefully left you with something sweet.

I hope he's able to raise enough funds, he really is an astounding filmmaker.

The beautifully shot and edited trailer for "Ciao" is incredibly moving. I'm sure his new movie will be wonderful. I wish I wasn't a broke housewife and had money to send his way *come on Lotto millions*

Fic! And it sounds right up my alley! *bookmarks*

I haven't see "Glee" yet. Man, there aren't enough hours in the day any more.

Wow, after reading the story outline I'm even more intrigued by "Pit Stop." What an engaging premise.

I'm so proud of him, he really is an amazing talent. I've worked with him on a few films, and they've each turned into something far beyond what I expected. And he's hilarious, but Newhart-level dry, which happens to be one of my favorite.

You should check out Ciao sometime, that also helps him! :)

Gosh, that is the truth. I'm starting to sacrifice sleep to get it all in. Hopefully tomorrow night and Sunday will be my chilled out/catch up on things days.

I just loved the picture on HDJM of Sookie passed out on a cask or whatever the hell she was doing sprawled there.

Thank you, as always, for the pimp! You're the best.

Maybe you should have called your fic NC-17 Kurt/Blaine furniture and cross-dressing kink and hoped nobody noticed the rating problem! It's all about marketing!

I love your fic. Love it. LOVE it.

Pah, it is NOTHING to share greatness with friends. I would be ashamed of myself otherwise.

And haha, I almost sent you an email saying something like! "H0ttt dirrrty B0y SMEXX, TOO HOT FOR THE COMM!" but with more spam mail features. :D

We're sorry, but flaming muse is not available at this time. All of her circuits seem to be overheating due to the use of an unexpectedly incendiary icon.

Please try again later.

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.
