green: heart in a dialogue bubble (stock: love)
I received a wonderfully done photo-card for Valentine's day, but I could not read the signature to figure out who of you sent it. But I do want to tell you that it was lovely, and that I appreciate it SO MUCH. I don't care much for holidays like V-Day ('Singles Awareness Day' or whatever you want to call it), but it was so nice to be remembered enough to get something in the mail. So thank you, kind friend from the lovely state of Washington. ♥

firstly, thank you to the people who sent gifts for my boys this season. I would not have had anything with which to get them stuff if not for your generosity. so much love. ♥

secondly, thank you to the folks who nominated me to receive DW points over at [personal profile] nanila's journal. I didn't know this was happening until just now when I got an email telling me I just got points! so to my friends who thought of me: you made my day so shiny.

hi! bye!

afk today and for most of the next two weeks. on my way to get my boys! \o/

will answer all comments and emails but as for reading and commenting in your journals, that's going to be on hold. probably. unless I can hide in my room at night. we'll see.

will probably be available for chat on and off. just expect long delays.

flist woes

I miss some of my friends who are still at LJ and not likely to leave. I understand, you have problems with DW or you don't want to leave LJ because of the people still there. You might end up like me, ignoring the ones you left behind. Or, like A, you hate DW with fiery death hate. I don't understand that, but I accept it.

THE PROBLEM IS THIS: I'm missing out on your important posts! Until a few days ago, I only had 1. [ profile] a2zmom on a feed (which doesn't pick up locked entries) and 2. [ profile] ladycat777 tracked so that I get entries in my inbox/email. That's it! Today I added like, one more person to tracking, but there's got to be an easier way to do this. I have many more people I want to follow who are only at LJ.

So here is what you can do to help me. If you have a DW with mirrored content and I don't have it added to my circle, LET ME KNOW. I will add you gleefully. If you are only posting at LJ, let me know that, too. I will figure out what to do with this knowledge.

I know some people on my flist read both places. In order to do that I will have to do a mass defriending at LJ, so if I go that route and you get cut, keep in mind that I'm reading you SOMEWHERE. Probably. :\ I might cut some people because of fannish drift or the whole 'we were never that close anyway, woe' but please don't take it personally if that happens.

OH. And if, like [ profile] a2zmom you have a feed over here at Dreamwidth, it would be AWESOME if you let me know so I can add it.

yesterday, I did NOTHING. the only productive thing I did was make dinner (frittata, it was okayish). today I'm going to write. I'm going to finish my FandomAid auction fic if it KILLS ME. (why can't I just have someone else write all the smut for me. why?)

*toes dirt* I, um, picked up a few more friends at the friending meme. HI NEW PEOPLE! but that's it, I'm not adding anyone else. unless they add me first. (in which case I will squee and add them back gleefully)

it seems that no one wants icons! seriously, I want to make icons for you. do you think my icons are sucky, is that it? do you need samples? I'll give you samples! (if I can. OMG PHOTOBUCKET, STOP BEING CRAZY)

other icons in this post: the walking dead, teen wolf, sherlock, due south, bucky barnes, avengers

some more icons you might want to snag under the cut - not in order )

oh, so. I was talking to someone on okcupid and I think I scared him away by talking about religion. see, I asked him to tell me something that's not on his profile, so he tells me he used to be Catholic and left the church and is now basically agnostic. so I tell him about how I'm technically Noahide if you want to put a label on me, and how I think of my religion as Judaism but can't quite identify as Jewish since I haven't converted yet. Maybe I rambled about it too much, IDK. all I know is that he hasn't responded since that message.

OH WAIT HE JUST RESPONDED. haha, I'm so paranoid. *goes to read*
green: (Default)
wow, so many new people! I admit I went a little crazy on the friending meme. again. but so many people looked so cool!

*looks at inbox*

SEVENTEEN new people. Be patient with me while I get to know you.

I wasn't going to post a getting to know me meme thingy, but maybe I should. what kinds of things do you want to know?

Did I mention that I finished the rough draft of my Dragon Big Bang? OH YEAH, BBS.

still taking gifty icon requests. leave a comment with what/who you want and I'll do my best to make something pretty. my icons aren't too ugly. :)

1. I added some people to my circle from the DW friending meme. They are all TW people. \o/ Hi new people!

2. Went to Meg's holiday program at her school today. It was ace.

3. Am almost done with my Dragon Big Bang! Well, I'm in the middle of the climax, and then I'll have some more stuff to write but then I'll be DONE, BABYYYYYYYY!

4. Saw Adam today! He looks good. Happy.

...that is all for now.

my mom just told the neighborhood children to "get the hell off the lawn and if you throw a rock at the dog I'm going to bust your butt!"

sometimes mom is hilarious.

we have a FENCE, so they're not actually in the yard, just running along outside it.

now the kids are going to make up stories about my mother, the actual wicked witch of the neighborhood. there will be dares to climb the fence and fetch balls from her collection. or something.

I need to go to the grocery store and buy non-thanksgiving foods.

I run out of meds on friday and do not have an appointment to get more until next wednesday.

OMG I HAVE AN ARTIST FOR DRAGON BIG BANG! Now I really have to finish the fic, huh? :P Seriously though, I'm so excited.

I don't cuss half as much as I used to. Those of you who've been around for awhile might have noticed that.

this is pretty much a post that says nothing. HI. drop by and say hi if you're reading. also, if I haven't granted you access and you really want it, let me know, because I've fallen behind on keeping tabs on who's in and who's out.

Okay, so, for xmas I'm going the illegally downloaded route, because I have no money at all.

13 year old boy has a Kindle. I'm wanting to fill it with books he'll like. I'm starting with:

The Hobbit


Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo (this is the 10 year old's suggestion, based on past preferences)

But I would like a lot more on there, so here is what you can do: RECOMMEND SOME BOOKS. From past experience, I know you are GREAT at this. Also, if you have advice on illegal downloading of books, give it here. I've not done it before. Movies and music, yes, but what if books are different? They're supposed to be MOBI files, right?

Ugh, and now I am thinking of asking Jerry what he's getting the 10 year old for xmas so I can buy complementary gifts. *shivers uncomfortably*

Did I mention the 10 year old wants a ghillie suit for his birthday/xmas? Mom and I are going halfsies on it so it's not too expensive.

okay, there is this meme. and I was thinking: can I really do this meme? I hide like a turtle and stay distant from a lot of people. I've gotten to where I only IM with like, 3 people, where I used to stay in touch with my flist really well. I've gotten hermit-like. I hardly ever even read my flist/circle anymore because it feels like pressure to participate and acknowledge people. I DON'T KNOW. WHAT AM I SAYING. so I will do this meme, and if I need help I will scour your journal and come up with the answers with research. so there. I can do this. I need to do this in order to function as a human being in fandom, right? maybe not that dire. but still. I should do this. making an effort is important.

Comment and I will ...

1. Tell you why I friended you. If I remember.
2. Associate you with something.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Associate you with a character/pairing.
6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
7. Tell you my favorite userpic of yours.
8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Hi. i lost many many things on my old computer and right now I can't afford to recover them. I'm not rly worried about my music just yet, but rather the fic I had been working on in the past before I started putting everything on google docs. so if anyone has the following (maybe I sent it to you for cheerleading?) I would appreciate getting them back. I know it's a long shot that you kept them, but maybe in your mail archive or something?

Red/Wolf prison fic

Mikey/Ray space slaves for [community profile] kinked

...that is all I remember. but if I sent you a half-done ficlet PLEASE send it to me. thanks.

beingagreenmother at gmail.

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the gift card I got. You don't know how much it means. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
green: (stock: tired)
everything is going so bad. I need money desperately for food and gas to get to meg's neurologist appt on monday. if anyone could help me out that would be wonderful.

EDIT: I had to deny the money sent me because they wanted me to jump through hoops to get it, I think because I used the button. could you maybe resend if you sent me something directly to at paypal? I think that'll work.

(I wouldn't ordinarily do this, but DCF is dicking me around on my food stamps this month and I really need money for food and gas.)

I just threw away all the written and addressed holiday cards I never sent from the past five years. seriously, five years. I AM STARTING OVER. This year is my year to send out cards.

If you want a card, leave your address here! Comments are screened. If you think I already have your address, YOU ARE WRONG. Because I lost my old address book and just threw away about 30 cards with out of date addresses on them.

I will periodically point you to this post. (I know I'm starting early, but it's the only way it will get done.)
green: (art: I like making things)
To the first five people who comment to this post, I will gift you with something of my own crafting. It may be an icon, a manip, a drawing, a ficlet, or something completely random. You may love it or you may think it sucks, but regardless, it will be made with love for you from me. ;) Feel free to give me a hint of what you might like (ship, character, actor/actress, fandom, color, etc).

The catch? You must pay it forward and post this in your journal so you can gift 5 of your friends with special gifts made by you.

So just leave a comment. It doesn't matter what fandom you choose or whether I'm familiar with it or not, I can make an icon or write a drabble for pretty much anything. :)

I am BORED and LONELY and I want to talk to people. So ask me a question, or give me a fic rec, or ask me for icons, or any other graphics. Or ask me to make a tutorial for something, I can do that! Tell me your favorite lyrics or show me your favorite picture. Or something. Anything.

OR if you want, you can prompt me to write a drabble. I can't promise anything but I want to write DESPERATELY and the words just aren't coming. So help me out. Give me the title and the first line or something, and I will try to riff off of that. :D?

Goooooooood morning, internets!

I woke up to it again -- TMI of the poopy variety )

I finished my dS fic and sent it off to beta. It's a full 10k over what it was supposed to be. But yay writing! Today I hope to start on my Vampire Big Bang because the story has been banging around in my head and I need to tell it.

I want to write the werewolf fic, but it doesn't seem to be happening any time soon.

I am not signing up for any more challenges. Nope.

I am going to post a poll and prompt post later for [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw. I will write short fics (ha) and writing meta (double ha) on the topics YOU choose. But the content will only be at DW, so keep an eye on this journal.

I'm considering not crossposting for three weeks. I don't know if I can doooo it. Maybe I just won't crosspost the actual ficlets and meta.

There wasn't a lot of interest on my poll about Get Mikey Laid. I'm assuming that is because my flist is smallish on the bandom side? It CANNOT be because people don't like Mikey. I refuse to believe that. I still think I will try to run a smallish fest for it, though, and hope with some advertising it garners more support.

I would like a larger bandom community on Dreamwidth. Maybe I will start a squee comm, where comment fic and picspams as well as longer fics are welcome. Is anyone interested in something like that? I could start with a friending meme for DW and then move on from there. IDK, just thinking out loud.

Like I said last night, I added a lot of people to my flist on LJ. I don't know why, exactly, just that I was feeling lonely and wanted to surround myself with people and have more content to read. Also, I like making new friends. :)

I am thinking a lot about writing a fic [profile] lovesongwriter suggested, Mikey/Frank with arranged marriage and pining and misunderstandings and werewolves. I hope my writing mojo sticks around after my boys leave -- I doubt I will have much time to write while they are here.

I have to go to the store today, which I always hate. But I need to stock up for my boys' visit. It's always good to feed your children. :)

I feel like I should mention the Iero twins. Because that is what one does! I am ecstatic that Frank and Jamia are having babies! My face has been like this :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD since it was announced. BABIES! Babies are fabulous.

I think I want to do more comment fic today. So if you have a prompt for me, leave it here and I will do what I can. Fandoms: Harry Potter, SGA, due South, MCR, BtVS, Star Trek (2009).

Oh, and I now have 17 or so stories up at AO3. Here! I have been surprised at getting comments for fics I upload there. I wasn't expecting that! But it is awesome and I'm so happy. I love getting feedback, even for old stories I wrote, what, seven years ago? AWESOME.
green: (Default)
I added some new people to my flist on LJ, so if you're coming to check out who friended you, um. HI! :D

Friend me back or not, I am cool about these things.

In other news, my boys are coming tomorrow! At least, that is what J says. I can't wait to see them; it's been about 6 months.
