moosesal gave me the letter "L" to name 10 things of which I love, starting with that letter. (this will make sense under the cut.)

  1. Liquor! Mmmm, the liquor I had for lunch today. I haven't had much lately, what with me needing to maintain for filming but I said a big ol' fuck it and had a few margaritas with lovely lovely liquor. Tequila to be specidfic. And Chambord. And Grand Marnier. And tequila. I think they fit some lime juice and a squeeze of lemon in there somewhere... Mmmm. liquor. I don't like beer. I can tolerate wine on occasion. I like the hard stuff. I started with Glenlevet and Jack when I first was naughty with the demon drink, because I wouldn't get carded. Who would card a 19 year old ordering scotch? Not this gal!

  2. Ladies. I love me some ladies. By which I mean elegant women. I'm fascinated by how they stand, how they walk, how they move their hands... Being a Southern girl, we're always taught to be a lady. Unfortunately, I had a mother that said that out of one side of her mouth and swore and drank out of the other. Lady = Audrey Hepburn. I could watch her for hours.

  3. Laura. (Not me, Laura Ingalls Wilder.) And I need to further explain by saying Laura of the BOOKS. I loved LHotP when I was a girl, but I watch it now and cringe. I love the Laura that sewed shirts for extra money for her Ma. Laura who's best friend was Mary (who "went with" Cap Garland) and who lived with the Brewsters for her first teaching assignment and cried herself to sleep because they were such ugly people. And didn't those Garth Williams illustrations make those books so much more real to you? Every time she talked about her clothes, I wished I had a pale green lawn dress. :) I used to imagine bringing her back into our time where we could be best friends and I'd show her how everything worked. Or vice versa. NERD ALERT.

  4. Larders. One of my favorite places at my grandma's was their stone-lined basement, loaded with shelves and freezer units. (You can take the girl out of the Mormon church, but...) I have had it hammered in to have a 2 year supply of food and needs since I was little. I love big, huge pantries and storage rooms. Lame, but hey. Preparedness is a turn on. :D

  5. Laughing. That hard belly laugh where you almost can't breathe and your vision starts to fade? God, I love that. Just being caught off guard by someone's words or actions making that completely unfakeable reaction. Awesome. You can fake crying, you can fake anger, but you can't fake a laugh.

  6. Lavender. The plant. I have several in my garden, and they make me so happy! Their little bee-shaped blossoms, the wonderful smell, the EASE of growing? Yes.

  7. Learning. Sometimes I really miss being in school. I love sitting in a class room, a lecturer/professor who so clearly loves what they're doing and is knowledgeable... The last class I was in was for my master Gardener certification, and I was like a pig in shit listening to these experts talk about subjects I was fascinated by.

  8. Leo! My "star sign" and my favorite animal. I'm a complete and utter Leo, even though I have NO BELIEF whatsoever in astrology. But... Read everything about a Leo and there's me, down to the obsession with our hair. :)

  9. Lightening. A good thing about living here in Texas is that we have amazing electrical storms. (Um... if you like them. Which I do.) I love sitting on my porch at night watching the lightening streak across the sky. If it's also raining, we'll open up all the blinds and sit in our living room where we tend to have a great view of the storms rolling in.

  10. Lockets. I have ALWAYS wanted a locket. They're so romantic to me, for whatever reason. I blame LM Montgomery. :) I loved the idea of having a picture and a locket of hair from someone you loved. Having a Widow's Peak would be cool, too. And a black satin dress with puffed sleeves. (Double Puffs, Marilla. Hahaha.)

SO! If you want a letter, lemme know and I'll give you one!

As for me, I'm going to have another margarita as it's a million-fifty degrees outside and play with my new digital camera, WHOOOO! This may be the last time I get to post/communicate, as I start filming this weekend. (Nicholas Brendon will be In Mah House on Sunday - I have permission to make out with him, should the offer arise, ahahaha [ETA] JEEZ, white women! "In mah house" means in my AREA. Not my actual four walls. Also: see "tipsy" while writing this) I plan on taking loads of behind the scenes pictures and will share/update soon.

Have FABULOUS weekends, everyone!! *hugs you all*

In your home? I think I would be way too stressed to have someone famous in my house. Have fun. :)

Love your list, love. I miss the electrical storms of my childhood (in southeast Missouri). I was fascinated by lightning and tornadoes.

I've been to Laura's (the writer) home in Missouri with the special low counter top for her little self to kneed bread on. I could never get into her books, but I loved the tv show when it was originally on. I'd probably cringe watching it now.

And hell yes to laughing. I fell in love with Chris when I met him because he made me laugh. Repeatedly. And even during the hardest times, I can always count on him to make me smile.

Ahahahaha, here's how much of a lightweight I am now - I just laid down and took a 40 minute nap. LAME.

Oh, whoops. By "mah house" I mean = my town/neighborhood. Dude, I would be SPAZZING OUT if he was actually in my home!

I still watch the show (ON Hallmark channel, she's just starting to date Manly. *g* I just like the characterization in the books moreso than Melissa Gilbert's brash acting. But when I was a kid? LOVED THAT SHOW.)

*loves you* I do remember that you have a FABULOUS laugh.
Sep. 1st, 2007 04:07 am (UTC)
Thank you. You're not the first to compliment me on my laugh. I used to work with this guy who loved my laugh. And since I love to laugh, it's good to know that I have a good one. :)

In your town is much better than your home. That would just freak me out.

I loved the Little House books also. Sadly, I could not get my kids very interested in them. I guess it's a girl thing.

I love lavender, but mine tends to grow very spindly. Send me lavender advice! (I did add a lot of sand this year, so hopefully it will overwinter.)

I've had a very tiny locket since I was 1. My Aunt Lee and Uncle Howie gave it to me as a birthday gift. It's gold and engraved on the back with my initials (which fortunately didn't change after marriage) and on the front with a flower.

I had a hard time getting my girls into the books, too! I think it's a generational thing. The world of Playstations and cell phones can't understand grass twists to survive or wheat walls...

I grow a Spanish lavender - French and English can't take our heat. The best advice for our type is to leave them alone. They like crappy soil and reflective heat, so mine line my driveway. They've gotten massive from all the sunshine and heat of the concrete.

Ooooh, that locket sounds perfect!! I really need to remedy this. I've always wanted one...

Well, I'm not going to be taking pictures of the MOVIE, I want to take pictures of like, you, Robin, Chris, Blair, etc. Behind the scenes stuff. That's fine to do.

I just took a nap because we ate hamburgers for lunch (zomg, chipotle bleu cheese and bacon burger. What the HELL, but it was delish!) and margaritas and it made me so sleepy... WHAT UP, G? What's your day like? Still with the lame?
Aug. 31st, 2007 10:36 pm (UTC)
Now I have Bert singing "Lalalala, lemons... lalalala, linoleum" in my head, thankyouverymuch...
Aug. 31st, 2007 10:47 pm (UTC)

I knew there was an "L" song!! La, la, la, la lights in the sky...

Aug. 31st, 2007 10:59 pm (UTC)
I'm right there with you on liquor and lightning and larders, oh my! I love me some overstocked pantries and six different types of mustard and ten different hot sauces in the fridge. My MIL has a full basement, but all it has is their fake Christmas tree, still decorated and covered with a sheet, so they don't have to bother with decorating it every year. Sad.

We haven't had good lightning in all this rain we've been getting, but it's getting a mite rumbly outside *crosses fingers*

NB in Texas! Ply him with 'ritas and take lots of incriminating photos for us all!

Garth Williams, sigh. I love his illustrations for Stuart Little and Cricket in Times Square, too. I'd forgotten he's done Little House as well. I learned to bake with my mom while I was reading those books.
Sep. 1st, 2007 12:11 am (UTC)
Oh, Cricket in Times Square!! I loved that series. I may need to pick that up this weekend - I can't believe I don't have it for the kids already! Oooh, I learned how to cook so much from "Farmer Boy."

My aunt has a pantry that's 13 feet by 15 feet, shelving up to the ceiling, every shelf stuffed with canned goods from her garden, 10 gallon buckets of flour and sugar and chocolate chips (both semi-sweet and milk chocolate) and on and on. Man, it was like a grocery store in her house!

We had some AWESOME lightening last night. Lots of rain lately, too, which has been great. This has been a weird summer all around - not too hot and really wet. I'm not complaining, just head scratching. :)
Aug. 31st, 2007 11:17 pm (UTC)
I understand your love for number one. Uh, I may have passed out at 7:30 last night after my last email to you and Lee. o_O

I felt very well-rested this morning :)

Also, I don't know how to tell you this, but I think your spider is amassing an army and they are about to invade. You probably ought to skip the movie-filming and NB-sexing and duct tape yourself and your children inside your house. Mr. Stoney may need to be sacrificed for the good of the family-- maybe if you leave him outside they'll take it as an offering and leave you alone.

Millions of spiders, spiders for free.

AHHH!!! That's been ALL OVER THE NEWS here for the past few days. Isn't that DISGUSTING?? And apparently it stinks because of all the dead bugs. *gags* I turned the news on first thing this morning and got grossed out from new pictures of the lake creatures. FEH.

And hahahaha - poor baby with the liquor!! Except yay for sleep! Man, I took a nap this afternoon and felt weefweshed. Weefweshed enough to hit the bottle again in a few, in fact. :D
Aug. 31st, 2007 11:55 pm (UTC)
JEEZ, white women! "In mah house" means in my AREA.



Sep. 1st, 2007 12:02 am (UTC)

I mean, come on. If you had the option of gettin' busy with Xander, you would take it, right? *points to "area"* HEEEEEE.
Sep. 1st, 2007 04:29 am (UTC)
OMG GOOD LUCK THIS WEEKEND!!!!!!!!! I will be praying for you hourly, and I'm an atheist. Say hi to Xander's "area" for me.

I actually wrote "penis" then changed it to "area", because I'm a "lady". :0D True story!
Sep. 1st, 2007 01:25 pm (UTC)
THANK YOU POSHY!!! *smooches you all over* I will def. say hello to it, and I'm trying to decide which GORGEOUS PHOTO MANIP to get him to autograph for me....

(Ahahahaha! CAN YOU IMAGINE?!)
Sep. 1st, 2007 02:24 pm (UTC)
And then you could sell it on eBay!!!! I don't think this is crazy - I think it's GOOD BUSINESS.

So try to find one where he's a centaur. Kthx.
Sep. 1st, 2007 05:03 am (UTC)
OMG Stoney! I absolutely and completely agree with you about #3!!!! I LOVE Laura Ingalls Wilder (also the Laura of the books) and for those reasons you mention. I was her twice for Halloween (age 7 and age 8) and used to play dress-up as her when I was kid. But I didn't really understand the whole petticoat thing so would just layer all of my dress-up dresses - it looked very bizarre especially because they were my mom's old dresses from the late 60s early 70s.

I am so excited about the Laura Ingalls Wilder love that I *almost* didn't notice the exciting Nicholas Brendon related update!! I hope the filming goes very well!!

Sep. 1st, 2007 01:28 pm (UTC)
*squish squish squish!!* Oh my goodness, I got so nostalgic yesterday I contemplated sitting down last night and re-reading the whole series... (I've used her remedy for bee stings - remember in the Little House in the Big Woods when her cousin was attacked by hornets and they thought he would die? THey made mustard packs - it really works!) Hahaha, I learned so much from those stories - I was very little when I started reading them and she was truly my friend in my mind, you know? Laura and Anne Shirley. <3

I hope it goes well, too! He'll be here tomorrow, and from all accounts, is incredibly nice and friendly, and very excited to be working on this. EEEEEEEE!!

Only after you got specific in a comment-reply did I realize that Nicholas Brendon=Xander.


[Ignore the shade of green and move on. Go, go on now, go.]

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
