It's Wednes- FRIDAY. It's FRIDAY!

How the hell is it Friday already? And halfway through December? WHAT IS HAPPENING TO TIME I WANT ANSWERS.

Okay, there's a resurgence of posting on LJ, which makes me happy, so I want in on things. Questions for me? LEAVE THEM HERE and I'll do that post/question answer a day thing. Maybe multiple questions a day, who knows?

ION, there are some goodies on HDJM for you of the Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer variety. Orphan Black is coming back soon, as is Hannibal. HOORAY! And a new show Black Sails will be added, and I am VERY EXCITED about that. (I wish I could nab Heathicorn from Tumblr to do Teen Wolf recaps, because she's ridiculously hilarious.)

SPEAKING OF DONATIONS (we were in my head), did you know that it takes the average HDJM writer fourteen million hours plus three human sacrifices to write up a recap for our site? I also require that they show me proof of broken legs before they're allowed to post. That's a lot of work to do something for free. (Okay, it usually takes a minimum of 6 hours from start to finish, not to mention the time spent replying to comments, marketing, crying when you don't get any feedback...) Should you find yourself with a few extra pennies on your hands, would you possibly consider making a donation to our site?

Now, I pay for all costs to run the site and will happily continue to do so as long as there is interest in HDJM (although it would be lovely to get income to push towards the hundreds of dollars I spend on yearly server fees, etc. But I'm not even asking for that.) I'm asking for you to support our writers, some of whom are attempting to get a career writing and are using HDJM as a battleground/resume thickener. I love sending them money when we get donations (and I send them ALL the money. I keep nothing, unless it's mentioned that they would like the money to go towards the site's operating costs.)

My girls work hard to provide a fun, safe place to be geeky and love on your favorite things without worry of trolls, hate, or wank.

If that's something that is important to you, maybe consider dropping a bill into the tip jar? (On the right side of our site is a DONATE button. I'm not even going to lie and say that the $2 donations we were given last year didn't choke me up. That tells me that money is tight for you and yet you STILL made it a priority to thank your writers. So freaking amazing. <3

I try not to harass my flist much. We keep on keeping on over there and enjoy what we do. But hearing that YOU enjoy what we do is the icing on the cupcake. (And feel free to link, repost, point this out to people you know who like our site as well.)

Imma bake some cookies today. Whatchu doon, Boo?

Here's my question for you, and I know it'll be a tough one: What are the qualities you most like about yourself?
Dec. 13th, 2013 04:14 pm (UTC)
(tough because of your own views, not tough for others of us, because you are AMAZING)
Dec. 13th, 2013 04:17 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, I knew what you meant, sneaky thing. :D

Okay, that one is going to require some deep thought.

I'll ask a question - the same one I asked muse: what are three defining moments in your life?

Also - what are Derek Hale's feelings about sweaters?
Dec. 13th, 2013 04:18 pm (UTC)
Oooh, I love both of these!!! *puts on thinking cap*
Dec. 13th, 2013 04:28 pm (UTC)
Since we are on the subject of food (hey, you mentioned baking cookies and we're in my head now), what is your favorite thing you cooked all year?
Dec. 13th, 2013 04:38 pm (UTC)
Oh. OH MYYY. So what I love about this question is that I'm going to have to go back through my posts/recipes and see all the things I've made and possibly recreate them today soon. :D

Not much! Just trying to stay warm. There's another winter blast heading our way, Stoney. I'M NOT USED TO THIS KIND OF WEATHER.
Dec. 13th, 2013 08:19 pm (UTC)
SAME HERE. I just want to curl up and eat hot, cheese-covered things. D:

*huddles with you for warmth*

I know you're a Master Gardener, so I want to know what your dream garden would look like if you had all the time and resources needed to create it. What would you include, and what would you leave out?
Dec. 14th, 2013 03:36 pm (UTC)
Yeah, this is the greatest question I've ever been asked. I WILL ANSWER THIS FIRST! But I'll need pictures, so gimmie a few hours.

Dec. 15th, 2013 02:18 am (UTC)
You are a sweetie :) I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one that takes hours to write their posts! It takes me extra long because I laugh at my own jokes like an idiot.

Here's a question for you: what's your favourite scene in the movie Love, Actually? (it's playing right now. I'm lame)
Dec. 17th, 2013 05:17 pm (UTC)
I am excited to answer this! Because it means I'll need to watch the show again.

(Hahaha, I laugh at my words like a DUMMY.)

You always seem to have lots of projects on the go: the potential gardening show, stallioncrest, various bits of film work, HDJM. Where would you like each of them to go? Which of them would you most like to see come off in a big way?

Oh- and what is your favorite recipe?
Dec. 26th, 2013 09:46 pm (UTC)
My favorite recipe is linked in question #2, and I answered your question in this post! THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTING!

I've been thinking about this one a bunch lately because I have a couple of songs that touch my heart and make me feel all nostalgic. Do you have a song or piece of music that makes you want to just stop everything and stare wistfully off into the distance? Alternatively, do you have a song that gives you a really happy, kickass feeling (you know, like turn that shit up while I drive triumphantly away in my convertible kinda song)?

What's your writing process? And by that I mean both how you craft the actual story and HOW you like to write. Do you go to coffee shops and write long hand, do you do it at your pin-neat (or Oscar the Grouch messy) desk? Is there wine involved? Do you have a special The Writer is At Work glass or sweater or hat?

<3 <3 <3'd this question, and have just posted the answer!
Dec. 19th, 2013 06:22 am (UTC)
I'm always going to be super curious about your family, so if this isn't too personal, How/when did you know that your Mr. was the person you were willing to share your life and your children with?

OORRRR, if you want a lighter-hearted one:

Tell me about the animals in your life! You have a cat and a dog, right? Where did they come from, how long have you had them? Do they follow you all over everywhere or are they super independent/don't touch me-type animals?


*nosey!Lils is nosey!*

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.
