Thanks so much to whoever nominated my Cordelia Chase essay at the The Wicked Awards. I consider it a very high compliment that you'd think that much of my writing.

*hugs*

I've had this journal for about six and a half years now and I'm still just under a thousand entries. I rarely find a good reason to post other than posting fic so I'm think about doing another 30 day meme, to push the number up over a thousand.

I guess I have to just pick the right meme. *ponders*
samsom: (vomit anyone)
I have just recently finished some needed cleaning and now the smell of Pine Sol permeates my domecile - fooling me for a little while that everything is clean. Laundry is good to go, everyone is showered and rested (except me) and in a very short time, we are going out to gorge ourselves on Chinese food. YUM.

there is a ridiculous amount of vomit talk beneath the cut, not for the squeamish )

And I downloaded three new songs yesterday.

Face to the Floor by Chevelle. Reminds me of Tool a lot, who are becoming my favorite band ever after Metallica.




Buried Alive by Avenged Sevenfold. This song is so like something Metallica would do, how could I not love it?




Narcissistic Cannibal by Korn, featuring Skrillex. Narcissistic Cannibal. Come on! What's not to love??





I love good rock music, don't you? *g*

Assuming Cordelia wasn't cremated, what do you think Angel would have buried her in?

I'm still remembering that godawful black dress the Scoobies buried Buffy in, and how much I hated it and the shoes. I like to think that because Angel had some style, the same style that Cordy had, he would have been a bit better at dressing her up.

Black? White? Something tasteful or youthful or both?

I think it might have been something black or brown and slightly above the knees, a glimmer of bling in the stitching to bring out her beautiful skin and a deeper than is proper vee in her cleavage, to bring out her breasts.

He would have put the necklace he gave her when he came back from Tibet on her, I think, something that nestled between her breasts so that whoever met her on the other side would know they were dealing with a gorgeous woman who knew how to accessorize as well as a soldier for good.

Her hair would be soft and down and her shoes would be of the latest style.

Yeah, I know. Morbid much? :)

They do have a symmetrical kind of style. Take a look at the header of [livejournal.com profile] whedon_kinkmeme.

Red and black inversed.

Two characters with something to atone for, wearing the colors of sin and adultery.

I kinda dig it.

You GUYS!

I'm so excited about the things I bought at Victoria's Secret last weekend!

Bras!

That fit!

And some pullovers!

Another year has gone by and I'm kind of sad to realize I just didn't write that much during 2011. I could give a laundry list of legitimate reasons but what it boils down to is a lack of focus. I don't make NY resolutions in general but I am going to make a promise to myself to do two things:

1. Focus on writing.

2. Use less cream and sugar in my coffee.

Starting small is the best way to go, I think.

Anyway, here is the C/A fic I wrote for 2011:

Except for the husband's hospitalization in November, 2011 didn't differ that much from 2010. I ended the year on a high note again, in that my husband is alive, we both work and are able to provide for our children, and we are lucky enough to not only have each other but we're both relatively healthy. Same as the end of 2010. So I consider that a victory, especially since so many others can't say the same. I'm especially thinking about [livejournal.com profile] starlet2367 right now. The universe has pushed you and pushed you, and I'm so happy and proud to see you have pushed back. :) I wish you more happiness and peace than you know what to do with, bb.

Here's to a more productive and prosperous New Year, not just for myself but for my flist.

For the second time in five days my daughter has woken with a stomach ache, and ended up in the bathroom throwing up.

Time to get the doctor involved, I think.

*sigh*

I am wholesale friending peeps over here at the moment. I typed in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel the Series into the 'search by interest' thingie and am pretty much friending everyone who's name I recognized and who I interact with on LJ. It's a defense mechanism against the latest round of LJ backlash, but I'm pretty much going to keep who I friended and who I will be friending. Feel free to friend me or not, I'm easy.


Over the course of the next couple of months, as I replenish my descretionary income, I will be getting a paid account and sweet talking my way into a custom Layout. Huzzah!

Well

I watched the remake of Fright Night the other night. And twice since then....during the same night.

Um, so I liked it.

And now I kinda really want to write some fucked up Amy/Jerry fic.

But knowing me, I'm gonna probably eventually turn it into Angelus/Cordelia fic. Cuz they live underneath every creative thing I think of and produce.

But right now, I want some Amy/Jerry fucked up, dirty, painful, abusive fic.

This was unexpected.

Quick post

I've been extra busy with Christmas, work, and family stuff, and I'm pretty damn sure someone shaved off an hour or so of the day so I've been behind even though I'm actually running faster.

The sound of a hampster running frantically on a wheel is purely my imagination, I'm sure.

But I wanted to say my heartfelt thanks and awww shucks to those that responded to my love meme. I really, truly hearts all of you, lurkers and flisters and anyone who actually takes time to read the minutia of my thoughts. I am so gratified by those that are here for the fic, and so abjectly miserable at not having something to offer you. I am hoping for after the New Year, when all the potlucks and shoppping and events are over.

[livejournal.com profile] catbirdfish, thanks. :)

I think I've decided on going to the costume party tomorrow night. My co-worker giving it specifically sought me out today to make sure I was coming and I would have felt bad saying no. Besides, her husband is DJing and he's Hungarian with a thick accent so it'll be fun to see how he does, LOL.

My problem now is pulling together a costume.

But I think I've hit upon the perfect solution.

I'm thinking of going as Bella Swann. O_O

I mean, I can get some white face paint and I've GOT silver glitter.

All I need are a pair of jeans and a little short-waisted zip up jacket.

Is this an idea or is this an idea?
samsom: (our turn someday)
Not dead or anything. Just very, very busy, tired and it's really hot out right now. I'm finding it easier to comment on other LJs rather than expend energy dreaming up something interesting to say in mine.

Oh! I did want to thank everyone for their hair advice. I think the next time I color my hair, it will go way smoother and the color will be less...red. LOL I am getting used to this color I have right now, or maybe it's had time to 'settle' into my scalp. And my hair seems healthy but that might be the glass of milk I've forced myself to drink every night for the last month.

I've got 21 episodes of Frasier DVR'd and I'm having a rocking good time watching two or three a night. This show is GOLD.

I also spent the last twenty minutes at work today writing a Cordy drabble. I only stopped because I had to shut down and leave. I might finish it up this weekend and see if it survives the "Debbie gauntlet". <3

Me and [livejournal.com profile] damnskippytoo, we had the best talk about Doyle, Cordy and Angel the other day, sparked some new ficcy thoughts and a whole lot of show love. I LOVE AtS! *twirls*

And I've had the most enjoyable back and forth with [livejournal.com profile] manthk on her LJ with her AtS posts. These are the things that I love and miss, talking about mutual loves to other fans. It's the best way to be a fan...talking about the show, the characters, 'what ifs' of the humorous sort. I forgot that for a while, but thankfully there have been some great reminders. Like the ones above.

Alrighty though, dinner calls. Hope everyone is doing well. I notice posting has been low lately but since I was guilty too, I can hardly complain, right? :P

I had to wait a couple of days to see how I felt, because I am so resistent to change, I knew that I'd hate the new hair color right after I did it.

I was right.

I spent most of yesterday staring at any available mirror and cringing. I'd been grayish for so long, that seeing a head full of non-gray hair was daunting. And then there's the color. I picked a reddish brown because before I had the kids, I had brown hair tinted red by the sun. This red...well, it's different reddish.

And I have more on top of my head and not so much towards the middle and ends of my hair. I think I concentrated too much creme at the top because that's where I started.

The more I wear my new color, the more used to it I'm getting. I can't say I love it but I don't have that same sense of horror I did yesterday.

So lessons learned are: Go for a plain medium shade of brown, try to be more even handed with the distribution of the color creme. Concentrate more on the back of my head, because I missed whole patches of gray there, and not so much on top.

*sighs and wishes for Charisma Carpenter's hair*
samsom: (pretty woman)
I'm about to color my gray for the first time ever and I need some advice. Is there anything I should know? Any little tricks or tips?

Most importantly, is there a time period after I use it that I can't wash my hair?

I'm using L'Oreal Paris.
samsom: (mr and mrs dorky)
Tonight at the store, when I was passing the bakery display case, I stopped and took a picture of the decadent single-serving (read: no sharing!) cakes - red velvet, strawberry shortcake, German chocolate - and sent it to Twilight Fan, who's on a diet right now.

And I'm not sorry. :)

I'm debating on whether to bring over the two prompts I filled at a kink meme last month. I don't know why, but every time I go to do it, I think to myself that it's just more of the same C/A smut I always write. I know it sounds weird, but I keep thinking ya'll must be bored with it by now.

Eh. I guess I'll always be that insecure girl from high school.

My husband's watching football...on a WEDNESDAY NIGHT. How is this fair?

I guess I'm done rambling now.

Well

I've picked my prompts at the ST ficathon.

Now I guess I should...um...write it.

...

Oh look, Elliot Stabler in a tight t-shirt.
