VALENTINE'S ARE DUE TODAY

Got a lot of e-mails today but could always use more! Thanks so much to everyone who's pimped this and [livejournal.com profile] severina2001 for the pimp today and for hosting it the previous years. I'll always appreciate you passing on the torch, bb. We're much like marathon runners that way. \o/

Say what? What is this? Well, honestly, drinking hot chocolate and eating gingerbread men definitely put me in the mood for Christmas but you know what else does? Fanfic. Nothing says Christmas like fanfic written for the holiday. I'm pretty sure I holed myself up one year to just read and read and I do hope that you do the same. Or if you don't, just glance at the names and enjoy the nostalgic kick to the past!

A gigantic, ginormous, huge thank you to the v. v. talented and awesomesauce [livejournal.com profile] url_girl for making the kick ass Cmas graphic! I also direct you to her past awesome icon contributions here, here (made for the Snowin' and Blowin' Challenge), here, and here, here, here, here, and here!

THE LIST:

1. [livejournal.com profile] bigboobedcanuck brought us the 12 Years of Christmas and this is so my canon forever and ever. You just spend year after year with them and it's like you're a fly on the wall.

2. E and E brought us the 12 Days of Christmas in which they take us on a journey that you can only take with Brian and Justin.

3. I spend every year with Rizabeau's epic Sugar Plum Fairies. I hear that. Don't laugh. It's not epic as in the best thing that I've ever read and you have to ignore the "baby's" and long, long passages that are probably difficult to get through. But, you know what? I don't care! There are adorable babies in it, more in-character moments than out of character moments, and it brings together the whole gang featuring Brian and Justin, of course. How wrong can that be?

Part One
Part Two
Part Three

4. There's Danny's Gift Gabbing which I haven't read in a while. But, if you like that furniture series, the Jealousy series (WHICH I LOVE), you'll enjoy this!

5. Randall has a series of Christmas related fics here that I will always rec out just because. I'm a fan of The Other Side of the Fence. That has some ... holiday themes in it.

6. untitled!Christmas fic by [livejournal.com profile] windtossed right here. Short but sweet.

7. [livejournal.com profile] reinabelle's Mistletoe and Ho Ho Ho because CHRISTMAS SMUT WITH CHRISTMAS LOVE AND HOW CAN YOU RESIST THOSE COMBOS?

8. [livejournal.com profile] severina2001's Of Comfort and Joy. You know what [livejournal.com profile] severina2001's fic feels like? It's like, sitting with a mug of warm apple cider, grabbing a blanket, and settling in comfortably. It's like that. This one has scrabble and Brian and Justin being epic. What else do you need? Oh, I know. More fic from her! A Non-Traditional Christmas Feast aka [livejournal.com profile] amelialourdes' heart clenches like a clenching thing. The Truth in which Justin is hungry. You'll see.

9. [livejournal.com profile] mclachlan has Wreck of the Dayhere. Brian doesn't do Christmas. Psh, yeah right.

10. [livejournal.com profile] suzvoy (I knew you had one!) has Quack which is totes not a Christmas story ... except it totes is.

11. Last and not least (not like any of these were in order of epicness) was the Snowin' and Blowin' Challenge. Geocities died and took our beautiful fic with it but it was pretty much the most awesome challenge done for the holidays. Pretty much. Many, many wonderful pieces of fanfic came out of there and if I sat here and described them all to you, I'd be here all night.

So, how about you just look through them and enjoy that holiday feeling that washes over you.

You can download it here: Snowin' and Blowin' Challenge - Fan Fic. It's a .rar file so extract it to open the files!

That should keep you all occupied for now. More to be added when I have time to go through the wonderful helpings that our fandom gave to us. Enjoy these!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I have about a million and a half thank yous to distribute but first let me say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and every other denomination or non-domination there is! Hopefully you are all enjoying some kind of nice vacation even if it's just been a day and a half off like me. Hee.

I've been busy at work so I haven't really had a chance to sit down and play around on LJ. I will be doing that tomorrow for sure (if I'm not too busy playing Epic Mickey which is, indeed, EPIC). But, like I said, I have a million and a half thank yous to say here even if I haven't answered you personally (yet) I hope you guys read this.

Thank you so, so v. v. much to my wonderful friends who've left me a v-gift and made my profile just that much prettier: anonymouse (hee) holiday cookies and more holiday cookies from the awesome [livejournal.com profile] suzvoy and [livejournal.com profile] on_the_ground. Thank you for the v. holiday festival drink, [livejournal.com profile] ayesakara. It is fabulous, bb! Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] friday82 for the awesome snowman cookie ... that I wanna eat whenever I look at it, haha. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season, bb! Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] severina2001 for being epically awesome always and for the adorable santa bear! Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] peggin for the adorb santa bear! He is precious. Last but not least! thank you to my friend [livejournal.com profile] ohfreckle for the precious festive penguin! He is indeed festive and I heart him and you for it! So many ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ for all of you!

And many ♥'s for all of you for just being here! So grateful to you all for being awesome.

Special, special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] highd who I definitely owe an e-mail to but thank you so, so, so, SO much for the donation to qafcaps! It was so generous of you to do that and thank you so much for wanting to keep the website up. When the time comes to renew it, I know that I will definitely be using it. It was really such a wonderful thing and I'm so, so grateful for it. Thank you again!

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] rockie2010 for thinking of me and making me a Brian and Justin fanclip vid to Michael Jackson's "Give In To Me". I grew up on the Dangerous album so that's one of my favorite songs of all universal. Thank you so, so much!

God, just looking at this list, I know I've been a really spectacularly crappy LJ friend lately, lol. But, on the other hand, you guys have just blown me away that I'm thought of at all so thank you again everyone so much for everything! I love having you guys here and I hope that you're getting some well-deserved rest and presents!

Much love to you all! ♥

Happy 4th of July, Americans! That's pretty much the most patriotic image that I saw on the net so I'm using it. I haven't done anything for the 4th since I was a kid but that doesn't mean I can't celebrate it indoors! I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! Let's all fly those American flags high. Despite my own complaints, I'm very proud to be an American. Always will be.

musicandme: (Default)

I didn't realize that it's Memorial Day since I haven't really needed to acknowledge any type of day lately so I hope that everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend. No wonder they're having a Band of Brothers marathon. I'm enjoying it right now. I have two veterans of WWII in my family. That's all the military connection that we have.

I originally wanted to say that there's a new CowLip interview roaming around. I didn't even know about it since I'm not part of that community anymore. I mean, it's so random, lol. It's five years later. Shit like this would've been a little helpful five years ago. I have no major thoughts on this. Maybe soon but I'm still too wrapped up in ATWT to think about this. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sakesushimaki for bringing it to my attention!

musicandme: (day ; vday)



It's almost *squints* 5 am. I had a technical snafu but all is well and the messages made it! I just wanted to thank everyone who participated this year and sent in their messages. It's all of you that make this project and I believe that it's worth doing. It makes me happy to see that this fandom is still continuing on years after the show's been over and I'm always happy to do projects like these.

Extra thanks always to [livejournal.com profile] severina2001 who started this little tradition for our fandom. Thank you to everyone who posted reminders about this in their journals and spread the news around. I'll have the official tally up for you in the morning to see how many names were mentioned. Again, I'm using an icon from the talented [livejournal.com profile] friday82. I think that's about it and my apologies if I'm missing anyone! Please let me know if there's a problem with any of the messages and I'll have that fixed as soon as possible.

Thanks again, everyone! Happy Valentine's Day!

In case you don't remember what this is, here are the two posts from last year: part one & part two.

So, this year, it's going to work the same way.

Who comments the most on this journal? )

They should also name this meme "the people that you miss" meme. People have defriended me, moved, deleted, and I miss a lot of them like crazy. Call me a sentimentalist.

How was everyone's New Year? Loved seeing the cast of Hair (briefly) on Carson Daly's show. And where was Mr. Will Swenson? With Audra in Iowa? I just read that Iowa part on her Twitter. I wonder how the thing at Joe's Pub went. Hopefully it went well for Broadway Impact!

OH MY GOD.

Things I Did Today:

• Woke up early and by early I mean around 9ish. I've been waking up at 9 lately which is good because I didn't really like waking up at noon. Even though I say that I'm sure that I'm going to go back to my sleeping schedule as soon as it's 2010.
• Went to the mall.
• Was shocked to see that they already had people there to direct cars into the parking garage. It was early in the morning! There was no need for that since the parking lot was pretty empty.
• Parked in my usual place and went straight for the Hallmark store.
• Bought cards for my parents, grandmother, friends.
• Went back home to fill out cards and pack the presents.
• Ventured out to the post office.
• Encountered rude people! (They weren't rude to me).
• Mailed my packages and cards after 30-40 minutes of waiting in line.
• Went to the back to take out money.
• Went to my Mom's bank to deposit that money into her account.
• Went to the grocery store.
• As I was leaving the store ... I forgot the one important ingredient for my holiday treat.
• Back to the grocery store.
• Finally back home.
• Ate lunch.
• Worked on my Mom's birthday present. (Her birthday's on the 27th).
• Received awesome Christmas presents from [livejournal.com profile] r_me_time.
• Cleaned the kitchen.
• Sat down.
• SURFED THE NET AND WAS EXCITED TO SEE [livejournal.com profile] url_girl'S RETURN TO LJ. EEE!

This was the first time in a long time that I did something all day. It felt like working a 9-5 with all that running around. The point is is that everything is finished. Well, mostly. Haven't wrapped presents for my cousins' kids that I'm seeing on Christmas Eve and in the haste and paranoia of wanting to get presents mailed out on time, I forgot to buy package material for the cousins' kids gifts. My mom's going out tomorrow for her shopping so maybe she'll find me a box somewhere that I could use.

*breathes*

PS: How did my screencaps go from this )



To this )

See? This is why I never finish these projects. The more I stare at something, the more I see the imperfections, the more I want to correct everything and change everything. Now my PowerDVD program doesn't work the way that I want it to and I still refuse to use VLC player because all the caps come out so dark. Ugh, I don't know what to do. Help.
