1/8/07 11:17 pm - CONGRATULATIONS GATORS!

In a total upset Florida has stolen away the championship dreams of the Buckeyes! Congrats to the underdogs in their incredible sweep of the title!

And congrats to Boise State for their win over OU. GO mid majors!

1/7/07 01:06 pm - Jack Bauer

I'm hoping for some help here. Awhile ago I saw an icon that said "Superman wears Jack Bauer Pajamas". Anyone know where I might find it? My husband is dying for it. Thanks!

12/18/06 09:56 pm - McMalfoy

okay all you talented manipulators and icon makers. I need a McMalfoy icon. It's totally an inside joke...but if you wouldn't mind. Think McDreamy and Malfoy...

You Are 60% Evil

You are evil, but you haven't yet mastered the dark side.
Fear not though - you are on your way to world domination.
How Evil Are You?


That's probably pretty accurate.

12/13/06 10:13 pm - Meme that I stole from Bunney

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your livejournal along with your seven songs.

1. Jackson - Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash
first of all I am SOOO in love with the movie walk the line. This is just a great song. It's full of banter between them. And what a great love story.

2. Dance Inside - All American Rejects
best freaking song on this album. The whole album is incredible but this one just gets you right in the heart.

3. Pretty In Pink - The Psychedelic Furs
My ALL time favorite song ever!!! Plus, I love the movie. And I just love that it's a narrative of this guy who is in love with this girl and notices everything about her and how she looks in pink.

4. Lying is the Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off - Panic! At the Disco
This song gives me the chills. I can actually feel him standing behind me saying this to me. Makes me think of some of the great Dramione I've read. *gets an idea for a fic I'll never be brave enough to post*

5. SexyBack - Justin Timberlake
Yes, he did bring Sexy Back....though he never lost it. Yum!

6. Bring Me To Life - Evanescence
I hated this song forever. But I heard it one day after reading a really incredible fic by the same name and it just clicked and I've loved it ever since. Plus the lead singer has such a haunting addictively beautiful voice.

7. Quando, Quando, Quando - Michael Buble and Nelly Furtado
I love Michael and I love Nelly.



************************


List ten fictional figures you'd have sex with (in no particular order)

1) Draco Malfoy! ***oh rickmans, I just think of McMalfoy***
2) Max Evans - no high school boy/alien I ever knew looked like that
3) Harry Potter - you know he's a naughty boy deep down
4) Mr Darcy - He's a pompous ass, but why not a challenge
5) Azazeal - okay so he's technically satan, but seriously a hot little piece of work.
6) Buzz Ravenaw - He could "Shag" me anytime with that lovely South Carolina drawl
7) Van Wilder - actually can I just have Ryan Reynolds?
8) Pacy Whitter - Thank you Capeside bad boy
9) Lucious Malfoy - it's that damn blonde hair, demonstrative, bad boy thing
10) Spike - are you seeing a pattern here?

7/18/06 11:30 pm - pondering and needing help

I haven't been very good about writing in my LJ.  I've read a lot of great fics the past couple of weeks.  All of you out there are really just honing those writing skills.  It is few and far between that I land upon a so-so story.  I've got some fics of my own but am not sure I am just quite ready to put them out there.  I dont' feel they are up to standard.  

I've been trying to figure out how to edit my page and edit my mood pictures.  I downloaded a really wonderful set of mood pictures that vaamped created with shots from Hex, that I desperately want to use,  but I cannot figure out how to load them onto my lj for use.  It is so frustrating!  Can anyone help me out?

I've been thinking about two fics I read a long time ago.  You all are so good at finding stories that perhaps you can help me out.  I'm looking for a story that I think was really one of the first few fics that I ever read.  It is based on the song I Write Sins Not Tragedies by Panic! At the Disco.  I read this story months and months ago before the song was released.  I laughed my ass off.  It was a DHr story where Hermione is supposed to marry Ron  but neither of them wants to get married.  Ron is in love with Harry I think and Draco shows up at the wedding.  Guests are talking about some "affair she had with the Malfoy chap."  The author used the song lyrics in the story.  It was actually very well written.

The second story was one where Draco and Hermione have a school project where they have a baby and they name her Ick.  I found it a really humourous story and I thought I'd memoried it but alas it is not there.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

6/22/06 09:39 pm - The memories of the past

Yesterday and today have been quite strange, in relation to people I knew in my past. First I found out that an ex-boyfriend was arrested on some grand money laundering scheme. What a dumbass! Let's just say he was never the brightest crayon in the box to begin with. Pretty, but dumb as a bag of hammers. Today I exchanged emails with another ex-boyfriend, who was probably the PINNACLE boyfriend in my life...save for my husband, that I haven't spoken with in about 7 years.

The particular boy in question was a lot of firsts for me in too many ways to elaborate. He unfortunately dragged my heart through the mud and muck, down the pavement, and then threw it in the garbage disposal just for good measure. It wasn't pretty. But so many years later, I realize that all my strength was matured from that one situation. I stopped letting men walk all over me after him and I called all the shots. It was, despite the heartache and pain, an enlightening experience for me. Today he and I talked about my life now, his life now. He's happily married with a daughter. I cannot express how happy this makes me. He finally found a girl...or I should say, a girl finally found him,one who could break through all the bravado and bullshit and love him the way I tried to so long ago. To his wife I say BRAVO! Talking with him today helped put some closure on a situation that for so long has been hard to let go of and close up.

A revelation that I had whilst in the midst of conversation with him was that it's so odd how you can know someone so well at one point in your life and be complete strangers the next.

4/15/06 10:15 pm - Happy Easter and Lovely Spring!

Today was a lovely day to get out. We hooked up with all the PWGI's. It was so wonderful to meet you all, and H and M it was so wonderful to see you after all this year gone by. We all took the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful weather by eating lunch and heading to the Arboretum to enjoy the spring flowers. Of course, being Easter weekend, it was quite full of people, but not as full as I might've expected. We made a nice go of it finding all the "HP flowers." We saw tons of Pansies and Petunias. Most of the Pansies were paired with the Narcissus, but none of the Narcissus had bloomed out yet. Perhaps it was due to the dry weather. This was the first time Brad and I have taken the baby out on a big outside outing. It was much too hot last summer and she was much too little. She enjoyed all the sights and all the people, and was all smiles after her nap. We took loads of pictures of her, and I pray they all come out. Stupid us for forgetting our digital, and having to resort to the store bought disposables. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

We all took the opportunity to kick off our shoes and sink our hot toes into the cool, soft grass. Who knew grass could be that luxurious and soft. It was delightful! I forget how magical and beautiful the gardens can be. My husband took me there on our first day date. It was rather delightful to return five years later.

The later part of the day was not as delightful for the baby. We took her into urgent care. Turns out the poor angel has a sinus infection. But the good thing is that we got her an antibiotic to clear up the infection, the good decongestant that you can only get at the doctor - rather than the crappy over the counter stuff, and finally a replacement aspirator to replace the one the dog ate. I'm telling you the aspirators they give at the hospital are FAR SUPERIOR to any you can buy at the store/babiesrus. The ones from the hospital are worth their weight in gold. Our poor puppy was nearly a crimson stain upon chewing up our original one. Now we have a good one again! Yeah! The dog can live freely again. LOL!

I hope everyone has a delightful Easter and enjoys all that it brings this Spring!

4/8/06 11:41 pm - Memes and babies

The babe is finally crawling.  I wasn't so prepared for this as I thought I might be.  She's very independent and likes to get around on her own without her space being crowded.  I realized a couple of days ago that I am in for trouble and she's not even a teenager.  As I was changing her, she was pulling on the blinds and I told her NO in my very best "Mommy means business voice."  She just let out the biggest belly laugh.  Stinker!  She doesn't laugh at Daddy when he gives her his "Daddy means business" voice. She's also started this scowling thing, in the past few days.  She goes from smiles to scowls in two second flat.  Oh, the girly emotions rear their head. LOL!

She bit me for the very first time last night.  I know she didn't do it purposely and that her poor little gums are aching from the teeth that are arupting, but a bitten breast never feels good.  It was enough to make me want to cry.  I told her NO and pulled her away.  She didn't like that, and hasn't done it since.  Wish me luck she got the message and doesn't try it again.

Currently I'm working on two fics.  One just popped into my head this evening.  The other I've been working on for a couple of weeks.  Super thanks to my friend Heather for all her editing and encouragement.  I've got more to send you.  I'm still really scared to put it out there.  *prays for confidence*  

Okay, onto the memes...

4/3/06 11:40 pm - trouble with my brain

why do I stay up so late? I know I'm going to regret this tomorrow when the alarm rings early.

I've been working on my first fic tonight...adding, deleting, anguishing over language and image. I just want it to be good. I won't be happy until it's flowing like milk and honey. Good heavens that could be never! Hello, reality...*taps self on head*. I'm so critical of anything I do. I can't half ass anything. Seriously...I can't even half ass emails at work. I can't allow myself to pick it apart over and over because i know it won't be what I want it to be if I do that.

I get these great ideas for fics, parts of fics, sentences, descriptions, at work when I'm walking to or from corporate services...but can't seem to remember them when I get home. I wish I could carry a tape recorder with me, but that would just be weird and I'm sure people would be like...have you seen that girl in Product who carries around the recorder and talks to herself. *guffaws at image of looney-self* Oh why can't I press a record button on my brain.

Okay...I'm sending my fic in waiting to Heather for some needed perspective. Bunney...I could use you here too.

Good night and good luck. *turns to self and says this*

I hope you all have a lovely week!

3/25/06 10:59 pm - Pretty In Pink

So I just finished watching Pretty in Pink - an all time favorite of mine - and I never realized until just tonight how hideous the dress that Andie wears to prom is. Seriously, they could have made it a bit more attractive. I realize that she's supposed to make the dress herself, but I made plenty of dresses in high school...none that hideous. It sort of ruins it for me. Though I had to enjoy the easter egg colored dresses on the rest of the girls, with big poofy sleeves...God love the 80s. *wink*

That movie has the best soundtrack...nice 80s new wave. Seriously, check it out if you don't know. Most of the John Hughes movies with MR have great soundtracks. I own them all. *jumps up and down clapping hands in delight* I used to want to be Molly Ringwald.

I'm so thankful for the weekend. Finally some time to sleep and nap. Bless my husband who watched the babe while I took a little catnap this afternoon. We spent most of the afternoon with some good friends who are expecting their first little punkin next month. We've been trying to get together with them for ages.

Also got my eyebrows waxed. *sqee* They were horrible! They look nice and clean...no icky stray hairs anymore that you don't realize you have until you are driving in the car and look in the mirror. Anyone ever notice that...you think you've plucked them to perfection and then you get in the car and realize that you've missed a whole patch of really dark hairs...like, what the hell, how could I miss that?! So now I feel a little less cavewoman.

On other fronts...really sucking it up on my basketball bracket. I can't believe that Duke lost...I had them all the way to the final game. Don't get me wrong. I'm SO glad they lost, because I hate Duke, but that just really f*ed up my bracket. Still, I had them pegged to lose to UConn in the end. I'm pleasantly surprised to see that LSU is bringing the heat...even surpassing Texas. So if they can beat UCLA, then it'll most likely be UConn and LSU. So didn't see that coming. I had LSU losing to A&M in 2nd round. I should know better than to pick the aggies *gagging*. Still I was trying to support Texas teams. Gah! I was secretly hoping that Texas would surprise us all and win their 3rd national championship this year...for a trifecta - football, basketball, baseball.

Off to read...

3/21/06 10:53 pm - randomn thinkings

Finally understanding how to do some stuff on LJ. Yeah! *big grin* Love adding icons, and just upped my icon use to 100...well worth the $30, and fun to make them my own. Just added a ton of Audrey icons...especially Holly Golightly ones. I suddenly feel the need to watch Breakfast at Tiffany's. Maybe tomorrow.

I've tried to find some icons from Shag, the movie, because it is my all time favorite movie. But alas, can't find any. Any of you especially adept at finding randomn icons...wanna find me some Shag ones? If I knew how to make them, I'd make my own, but not that cool yet.

I want to thank my friend bunney who took up my challenge to write a fic based on my icon. I think it looks like a self portrait of HGDM. The story she wrote is just wondeful!  It's called photo opportunity.  I'd advise going to read it on her page.  As soon as I can figure out how to freaking link stuff I'll link it. *damn you LJ for making it hard* ;)  You made my day with it Krissy!

So, I stayed home sick and finally got the mounds of laundry done that needed getting done.  *checks off list of chores to do*  I received my Slytherin shirt from ebay and so now that it's clean I can wear it to the next PWGI function. *does rain dance for 4/1* LOL!  Also got some much needed sleep.  I think they should warn new mothers in the child birth classes about how much sleep you really will be losing, for more than just a few months. Don't know how I am going to function when #2 comes around.  Not that LJ is helping.  I get sucked into a story and can't walk away until I'm through it.  I'm putting myself on a restriciton of 2 stories a night....or only 3 chapters...if it's a long story.

Okay, enough of my dribble.  Everyone enjoy the rest of your week!

LOL! I just had a revelation about my user icon....or rather I made up a story for it in my head. I realized that it looks like Draco and Hermione are trying to take a self portrait. You know, when you try to take a self portrait and you only end up getting part of your face. Anyone want to write me a little fic inspired by this....ooh a challenge. Bunney, Bambu...you gals feeling a bit creative? It could be short, or long, or fluffy, or angsty, or clean, or smutty. Evil Git...rickmans...you two feeling ambitious? I think I'll write a little something and I'll share.

So I just finished reading Bambu's http://bambu345.livejournal.com/ A Quest of Paladins. So good! You have to check it out...especially you dmhg shippers. She's building up to them. Check out her other stories too.

And if you are a dramione shipper...or you just love great writing you MUST check out Bunney's http://bunney.livejournal.com/ stuff. Freaking incredible! I'm stalking her fic page...but she knows. *laughs maniaclly*

Okay...off to read more and go to bed. SOOOOO happy tomorrow is Friday! And I'm doing great in my bracket predictions on March Madness!
