So I realized last night that four days ago was my eight year anniversary on Livejournal. I bought a permanent account, too.

Loooooong time, man. And a handful of you guys have been there with me from the beginning, and I love that we still chat. Like zyrya, & chantal87. 2004! Damn. And then there are all of my old RPG buddies from celebs_on_crack and a_list_celebs. THEN THERE ARE MY CRACK FIC/BAD!FIC BUDDIES! Oh, you who have laughed with me over the truly bizarre. Those that came over when there was crazy Jossverse wank...

Good times, man, good times. SO many amazing real life friends that I've made, too. Vacation buddies, dear friends, those of you that have the same wrong(right) sense of humor as me.

ALL THE LOVE, GUYS. Feel free to remind me how we met, by the way. I'd love to take a walk down memory lane with you. I hear they're serving mojitos at the end. *chinfist beaming*

Holy old timers!

Yeah, I've been here about that long, but never had the extra cash on hand to get a permanent account. I has a sad.

Nice thing is LJ has that kind of permanency; it's weathered a LOT of stuff and keeps coming through better than ever.

Think the mojito will still be cold when it arrives here?

I remembered that I didn't get my paid account until 2005, so it wasn't that first year.

I'll be sure to send that mojito in a special tumbler to keep it icy for you.

Way, way back, I got an email from a company named "Outside Pride". I posted the email any my reaction to it, and someone told me you had gotten one as well. They 'sent me in your direction'. Said company had a few things to say about Cold Case, and about portraying gay people in a positive light. Etc. etc etc.

I've never been sorry. You are an intelligent and funny correspondent and truly admire the way you won't stand for any 'crap', either in your lj or on HDJM.

I would love a mojito.

OH MY GOSH! That IS a long time ago! Boy, that blew up and I was pretty shocked by the response I got. I had to go look at it just now to remember how many great people there are in the world. :)

Mojitos are on their way!

::checks user info::

7 1/2 years for me. Blimey.

I am trying to remember how I found you. Probably through the Buffy fandom. And then there were bad!fic posts and I never left...

*raises glass to The Olden Times*

Isn't that crazy how long we've been here? And I'm not going anywhere...

Oh my god, I loved those bad!fic posts. And then the icons that came from them! <3 <3 *clinks glass against yours*

Happy anniversary! I'm going to hit nine years here this month! Nine! O.O I remember buying myself a two month account back then and thinking I wouldn't even use it for that long. HAHAHAHA.

Also:

HOW DID WE LIVE SUCH PARALLEL LIVES FOR SO LONG AND YET NOT BECOME PROPER FRIENDS UNTIL THE PAST YEAR?

I lurked around LJ for several months before getting one of my own - I feel like a n00b in comparison to some of my friends that are getting close to ten years. O_O

HOW DID WE THAT IS THE CRAZIEST THING EVER EVER AND I HAVE MISSED OUT ON SO MUUUUUUUUUUUUCH! *falls upon your neck*

Here, have a sexy Blaine to make up for my earlier shyness. :)

Happy anniversary!

I apparently had my 8th anniversary in April, LOL! That is a long time.

To the best of my memory, someone gave me a link to a very funny post of yours. But it's been so long, that I cannot recall the subject matter. However, I must have been very impressed with the way you expressed yourself because I friended you right after I read whatever it was.

*old timer fist bump* I love that I still talk with my girls from the old days. *hugs you*

Ahahaha, I'm laughing at you being impressed by me. And I bet it ends up that we formed our friendship over me mocking supremely bad!fic. ;)

Hee.

Happy LJversary! I will hit 11 years this month.

I don't remember exactly how I found you but it had something to do with being ex-Mormon. And Game of Thrones.

OMG, you're one of the early adopters, look at you! <3

Hahaha, I picked up a few folks that way. (We tend to look for each other if only to find someone that "gets it." Heh.) GAME OF THRONES!! Oh, how I freaking love that show.

Happy LJ anniversary!

You are made of loves! And tequila, and sparkles, and sass, and class, and BBQ, and chili without beans (buh?), and so much generosity, good sense, and happiness.

I came here via Posh's LJ, and feel in love with you as soon as our eyes met across the crowded room.

*gazes besottedly*

I think slackerace first convinced me to move to LJ, but you were one of my very first friends here. <3 <3 <3

OH POSH. How I love that girl. (And of course, I found her through her smoking hot Spuffy fics!)

AHAHAHAHA. That's just the paint fumes, dear, let's get you in some fresh air. ;D (And you remain one of my all-time favorite people, you know.) <3

Eight years! How did this happen??

it'll be 9 years for me in august, heh.

and i found you while searching for quality fic for the su_herald. Can't remember exactly what story it was, but i *do* remember being blown away by your talent and immediately had to start stalking you keep a closer eye on your journal.

:)

*smooch*

Your check is in the mail. ;D Aww, I remember getting feedback from you on something and feeling like the king of the world. <3

AWW, SNOW! And then we met at Writercon which seems AGES ago, right? Tequila shots for everyone!!!

How we met:

There was a crazy night in Vegas. There was alcohol, a stripper pole, the loss of innocence! Good times, man...good times.

Jul. 7th, 2012 10:44 pm (UTC)
AHAHAHAHA!! I actually remember EXACTLY when we met! WRitercon Atlanta, in an elevator, you were dressed to kill and cracked me up with a sassy joke.

And it's been love ever since. <3

Whenever I think of meeting you (in REAL LIFE, suck it other people who haven't met you) I remember with agonizing regret how I came there with She Who Must Not Be Named, and she didn't like you so I stayed away from you because I was rooming with her and I didn't want to hurt her feelings, etc. bloody etc. AND THEN SHE DROPPED LIVE JOURNAL LIKE IT WAS A MAGGOT INFESTED TESTICLE and never spoke to any of us ever again. Wow, glad I made the right choice there!

So my one and only chance to party with you was squandered. Sob! But until we meet again (and it's not out of the realm of possibility, I swear to dog), I'm so grateful to be your friend here and take part in the festivities. Hugs and bum smacks to YOU.

OMG, I remember that! And I couldn't FOR THE LIFE OF ME understand what I'd done. *hands* But I met you at Writercon in RL, too!!! And I just knew who you were, the hot, teeny blonde that wrote scorching Spuffy. <3

(Did she really? Wow!)

NO IT IS NOT OUT OF THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY, NOT AT ALL!! You were the first BNF in Spuffy-fandom that friended me, and I was so elated. :D Oh, Poshy, I ADORE YOU.

I think I came for the Twilight snark. And stayed for the awesomeness.

You are one of the few LJ people I wish I could meet in RL. We could have mojitos and good food and lots of snark.

We should have a StoneyCon just so we can all see her and drink and eat and laugh!

My vote is it's at her house. She has a pool!!!

Stoney, if I could remember how we met, I'd have drunk a lot less Baileys and Buttershots in the last 8 years, and the world doesn't need that.

I'm pretty sure we met through bad!fic. Which just increases your awesomeness.

Oh, Mary, you have the prettiest blue eyes... TOO BAD ABOUT THAT SCARLET FEVER IN INDIAN TERRITORY.

Oh, Miss Sue, you were the first Real Friend I made on LJ. We've been through a hell of a lot together, and always there's been Half-Pint and Carrots. Well, you came into Carrots late, but late is better than never.

ALL THE LOVE, MY DARLING DIANA BERRY.

Twilight. :-) I blame Twilight aaaaaall the way! *lol* And then I discovered what a truly awesome and... slightly insane... woman you are. ;-) Might not share fandoms (or hatedoms) anymore, but I don't care. I just enjoy reading your rambles. :-D I should get better at commenting though. :-P

I've been trying to remember. I'll be 9 years in January for my LJ, and I got a permanent account too, only because I got a refund for something or other that came the same day they were having one of the rare sales on those accounts, ~04 or 05.

I think it must have been through the Buffy fandom, maybe your posts about badfic. I watched those celeb comms for the LOLS. Priceless. It was long before Twilight or your Mormon posts. I've learned so much I have to say. Stayed for the kindness, the recipes, the parenting and the fun!

My first icon too! Happy LJversary!
stoney321
Jul. 9th, 2012 01:53 pm (UTC)
Ann, I think it was through Buffy fandom, too. I know I've happily seen your "face" around here since...gosh, close to the beginning for me! And OH MY GOSH, those crack celeb comms were so much fun to play in... Good times. GOOD TIMES. Aww, yes, back when LJ was so active you could barely keep up with your flist....

<3 <3 <3 I will give you my matching icon for continuity! :D

A day late, but HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!

I don't remember exactly when we met. I think it was during the latter days of Buffy fandom, it's definitely been awhile. I remember several folks on my FL linking to posts of yours and I found your LJ to be funny and smart and thought-provoking. I've never had the good fortune to meet you in RL, but you've always been so welcoming here on your journal, and you help keep this place fun and exciting.

Ooh, a mojito sounds very good right about now. YUM.

And yes, if we ever do meet, MOJITOS AND LAUGHING ARE A MUST. <3

This post made me go look at my own start date...February 14, 2004. Wow! That puts me at over eight years. And they said it wouldn't last :P

I honestly don't recall how you and I first interacted, but I'm certainly glad we did :)

Here, have one of your own icons in appreciation!

HAHAHAHA! I forgot about that icon! And I know you're back from the very early days, too! I know it was before WriterCon fo sho. Aww, good times with my Buffy fen. <3

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.
