  1. It's been exactly 2 years and one week since I brought Hey, Don't Judge Me online. :)
  2. Y'all should know by now that my whole point in creating HDJM was to make a place that was negativity-free for fangirls to share their fannish love of things without feat of TWoP smack downs, mocking, etc. There aren't many places online that promise that, so that's my #1 goal with the site, and I've tried to be faithful to that, with Twilight being the (obvious) exception.
  3. Because of that, I have absolutely struggled for over a month, now, about recapping a particular show that has made me sad, angry, and incredibly miserable. Which is ironic, as the show is "Glee." Yeah, I know, y'all knew all along that blah blah. here's the thing: I don't want to bad mouth, even now. I don't want to hear other people bitch about it. I just don't want to be involved with the show now. I might change my mind and come back to it for recaps, but as of now: I am no longer recapping Glee on HDJM.
  4. Please stop PMing, emailing, tracking me down via twitter, tumblr and FB to ask when I'm going to get to that. I'm not. Life is short (and currently stressful) and I don't want to force myself to do something that makes me miserable just so someone can have a quick read over their coffee.
  5. I would also like to remind the general public that I (and my girls) write on HDJM for free. Actually, I pay for the privilege of writing on HDJM, because I pay all the hosting costs (and I pay for a private server/VPN now because of the DDoS attacks last summer, and those are a few hundred dollars a year), and used to pay my writers out of my own pocket when we didn't have donations. I've been incredibly grateful for the donations we've received over the past two years, but those dried up a while ago. Fair enough, and I'm not complaining that they did, please note. I say this to illustrate a point: it's rude to demand even more free stuff from people that are already doing all they can to make a place for you to enjoy.
  6. A year ago, I was in NYC with flaming_muse at Lupa, Mario Batali's restaurant, where I had one of the best meals of my life. Truly. I had his oxtail ragu over fresh pasta, and it was transcendent. Problem: every recipe I've found online or in books isn't the recipe to that dish. Mario is a tricksy little hobbit. HOWEVER. I found a series of video interviews where he talks about that dish in particular, and have pieced the recipe together. For the past 2 days I've been making this fantastic ragu, and HOLY SHEEP BALLS. I wish I could Floo Network a bowl to each of you, because it's outstanding.
  7. I'll post the recipe this afternoon if anyone wants to bookmark it
  8. Dorothy Breininger of Hoarders messaged me yesterday and I just want to hug her bones.
  9. My violins will be ready this weekend \o/
  11. It's Friday, and I hope you have a fantastic weekend. :)
(And now I go back to writing this body-swap Teen Wolf fic, that is now over 40K. My goal: finish it this weekend/Monday.)

Life is just too short, you know? And you know better than most that I loooooooooove when things are delightfully bad. This show has just become something that hurts me, which is silly, but that's what it is.

I HAVE RAGU, MUSIC AND BOOTY, I NEED NO OTHER THING. Except the love of great friends, My Anne-Girl! <3

I'm sorry Glee isn't doing it for you any more. I can understand that people are asking you about it, because your recaps are amazing, but of course you shouldn't write them if it doesn't bring you joy.

Yay for pants, violins, oxtails, hugs, weekends and teen wolves!

Awww, you are very sweet to say that. I've had less and less discussion this season, but I think the fandom itself splintered, so no one really knew what to DO with it. But hey. Knowing me and my OCS tendencies, I'll come back and do a long rewatch and slap them all up one day after another, because I need completion. :)

Otherwise, life is coming up daisies, it seems, SO HOORAY FOR FOOD, FOLKS, AND FUN! <3 <3 <3 *squishy hugs to you*

Every time she does I get a little silly-faced and flaily, I'm not even going to try and act cool. :D

<3 <3 <3 to you!

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
