Better update later, but for now I hope those of you that celebrate are having a very Merry Christmas! And that all of you are having a wonderful holiday season. I adore all of you, and there is nothing I wish for more than just that all of you are safe and happy and healthy. ♥

Also, BABY!WENTZ. ♥___♥

Sliding in under the wire, but a very happy birthday to two of my favorite girls, [livejournal.com profile] beatzz and [livejournal.com profile] sayingwhatiam! I hope it was wonderful, bbs.

I got my car stuck in the snow the other night while on the phone with [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow. Look, [livejournal.com profile] schneestern tells me I need to keep up my reputation as a failboat, and I really don't think getting stuck in a snowbank while on the phone with a flister is a bad way to go about doing that. I hung up with her and put my car in neutral and tried to push it out myself, which ended...badly. Not with me getting run over! Which occurred to me later could very possibly have happened, but luckily I escaped with wet knees and a bruised ego.

I got the best package in the mail from [livejournal.com profile] tuesdaysgone the other day, omg. Seriously. Not only did it contain three tins of the BEST lip balm I ever ever encountered (although [livejournal.com profile] meegzi31 sent me one a couple years ago that is like the Holy Grail of lip glosses and I haven't been able to find anything even remotely similar since) but it also had a gorgeous necklace she made for me and a music mix AND A PICTURE OF A MOTHERFUCKING ZOMBIE/VAMPIRE UNICORN. All I'm saying is that Lars is the best and if she wasn't already married I would have whisked her away to Canada by now.

pictures! )

I also got a package from [livejournal.com profile] maryangel200 recently that was full of alkjfalj CANDY AND LIP GLOSS. From France! Is there anything better? I THINK NOT. And I got a beautiful bracelet and card from [livejournal.com profile] emmanation (thank you, bb!), pretty sparkly cards from [livejournal.com profile] _onebreath (along with a postcard from Scotland \O/) and [livejournal.com profile] bratalie, and a super cute card from [livejournal.com profile] musictoyourlips! Thank you so much guys, my holidays are already better because of you. ♥

Does anyone have any links to good holiday icons? Generic or bandom-themed, I'm not picky!

Holiday Love Meme, Secret Santa Style! / me.

And if you didn't put your name on the last love meme, you better do this one. >:( Even if you did put your name on that one and need some more love, do it again! There's no such thing as too much love, unless it's a creepy kind of love with scary mustaches and unmarked vans. Stay away from that kind of love!

Also, Leathermouth is doing a live stream of their show tonight, here. I think it's just for the US though. :(

In conclusion, BOOKWORM AHAHAHA.

eta. I am a total loser who forgot to send my EPIC EPIC love to [livejournal.com profile] rhombal for telling SVV hello for me at the empires show last night, and to [livejournal.com profile] musictoyourlips for concert calling me. I don't know what I did in a past life to deserve such amazing friends, but I'm not complaining!
quarterturn: (bandom - greta is so fucking cute idek)
Love meme! If you haven't already added your name, you should definitely do that so I can love you up. Seriously, do it. Or you'll ruin Christmas. >:(

Anyone who hasn't filled out the Christmas card poll, you should definitely do that, too. I have way more Christmas cards than I know what to do with. Seriously, whether we talk on a regular basis or haven't talked once since we added each other, I like sending out cards, so go fill it out.

One last time, if you've posted a holiday wishlist, and don't see your name here, please link me to yours! New people, especially, since I probably didn't see yours if you posted it early.

[livejournal.com profile] citibyrd, guess what? ILU! FOB concert call! \O/ Thank you so much, bb. ♥

Does anyone know of any good BDSM resource sites? Just good overviews, step-by-steps, dos and don'ts, that kind of thing. I know for a fact my flist is better than Google about this kind of stuff.

Here, have some Greta/Vicky-T! Pretty porny toward the end, so skip it if that's not your style. AND I KNOW HOW MOST OF YOU AREN'T INTO THE PORN, SO.

the prompt was 'Five times Greta Salpeter questions her straightness' )

So, I've been really, really terrible about keeping up with my flist lately, and I apologize! I'm slowly working my way back, so if you get comments from me on two-week-old posts, it's just me trying to make up for being such a failboat.

It doesn't help that my internet has been pretty unreliable and I was ridiculously sick today, and also that I've been writing a ton but finishing nothing. :-/ I did write Greta/Vicky-T for [livejournal.com profile] anon_lovefest, though! \O/ That community is awesome for getting me to finish stuff, but I fail at the anon part, because I finish things so rarely that when I do, I want to show them off and have that little "yay me!" moment that I accomplished something. That is probably pretty lame! But totally true.

I watched Zack and Miri Make a Porno earlier and there needs to be a bandom AU of this right now, Y/MFY? Despite the fact that I have yet to start on my [livejournal.com profile] yuletide or [livejournal.com profile] bandom_solstice fic, I might actually give that a shot.

I finally got caught up on TV today, too!

Supernatural )

Dexter )

Heroes )

I also watched the season finales of True Blood and Sons of Anarchy, which I'm not sure I've ever mentioned watching, but they were both good and I don't really have much else to say about them.

I missed [livejournal.com profile] vacivity and [livejournal.com profile] pshjesshatesyou's birthdays, but a very happy belated one to both of you, I hope they were fantastic! ♥
quarterturn: (bandom - jon/brendon)
Happy Thanksgiving, American friends! ♥ Hope it's full of good food, awesome TV, and family you don't hate.

I have a way more in-depth thanks post halfway written up, but I don't know if I'll get around to posting it or not. In case I don't, I am so, so grateful for all of you, who've kept me sane in various ways over the past year. ILU guys. Especially [livejournal.com profile] schneestern, who I love enough to spend three hours on Skype with even when I'm running on zero hours of sleep. :D

I wish I had wine. There's beer in the fridge but none of it sounds good. :(
quarterturn: (bandom - gerard sees what you did there)
BABYWAY HOMG.

NO HIATUS CAN WITHSTAND THE POWER OF THIS NEWS.

Ahahahaha, I had three e-mails and a whole flist full of it, ILU GUISE.

How reliable is the Star Tribune? It sounds a little sketchy, but maybe I'm just thinking of...isn't there a tabloid with Star in it somewhere? I'm gonna be very ;__; if it ends up being a hoax.
quarterturn: (bandom - gabe likes to blow)
First of all, a very happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] firedragon9, I hope it's fantastic!

And a belated happy birthday to both [livejournal.com profile] peridium and [livejournal.com profile] withserendipity, both of you are wonderful and I'm sorry I'm late! I hope your birthdays were brilliant.

If there's anything I can do for the three of you, let me know! ♥

Secondly, I'm taking a tiny mini-hiatus, probably no longer than a week and to be honest, it'll probably just be a few days. You guys are kind of addictive! I just can't keep up with everything right now. I might still be lurking around, and if you absolutely need to get a hold of me, e-mail me (rockinsteady@gmail.com) or call me (my number's in this post). I've been awful about commenting and getting back to comments, so if I haven't replied to something lately (or, you know, ever, because I've always been kind of flaky like that), it's nothing personal and you are welcome to poke me and go HEY YOU SHOULD ANSWER ME/WRITE THIS/DO THIS.

I leave you with this, which has made me laugh every single day I've thought about it.

[livejournal.com profile] schneestern and I were talking about how there should be a bandom porno production company fic, AS YOU DO. We got around to discussing what the names of their pornos would be, and OBVS they would be terrible puns on Fall Out Boy song titles. And possibly some Panic and MCR. And maybe TAI, too. >.> Some of them do not need to be punned, however, just summarized.

pornifying bandom songs - be warned, this is not for the faint of heart! )

I tried to edit out most of our keymashing and LOLs, but if you don't feel like reading through, here are a few of my favorites:

for your convenience! )
quarterturn: (politics - rahm will take that under adv)
[livejournal.com profile] rhombal called me from the empires show last night and I heard Under the Bright Lights, which is so very much my favorite song of theirs right now, as evidenced by my current journal name. HOW DOES SHE DO IT. Be so awesome, that is. ILU.

I've also decided that the thing I need most in my life right now is Rahm Emanuel bandom crossover fic. Somebody, please. It needs to be done.

Speaking of Rahm, this commentfic where Crowley and Aziraphale from Good Omens discuss Rahm? Is definitely one of my favorite things ever. More fictional characters need to discuss/interact with Rahm.

Everybody should probably sign up for [livejournal.com profile] sosodirty, a bandom kink fic and art challenge. There's a huge list of kinks and I sort of want to see almost all of them written. KINK. You know you want to.

I was in such a bad mood tonight that I had to start writing loan shark!au fic. Probably not the best use of my time, but writing about Frank gleefully beating the shit out of people cheered me right up.
quarterturn: (bandom - pw - with hearts and wrists)
[livejournal.com profile] musictoyourlips called me from the empires show tonight, the one that I couldn't make it to. I listened to Spit the Dark and may or may not have teared up over how much I love that song and the fact that people are awesome enough to think about me when they're having their own empires fun. Thank you, Rosie. ♥

If you've posted that Christmas wishlist meme and don't see your name on this list, please link me! I've been trying to keep track of them as they're posted, but I'm paranoid about some slipping through the cracks.

Here's a story about my failyness that's sure to make you re-evaluate ever coming to visit.

I was going to make mac and cheese the other day, right? Because mac and cheese is awesome and easy and should be made often. My brother had just made something that required a cookie sheet and a spatula, and left the spatula on top of the cookie sheet on top of the oven, so I just used the burner on the other side. Or. I thought I did. Fifteen minutes later, my brother announces that I'm trying to kill them all - there were flames, the entire house was filled with the smoke of a dying spatula, and my water was not boiling because I'd turned on the wrong burner.

The problem with this is that it's not the first time things like this have happened. :-/ I once blew up the microwave because I thought someone said to put a baked potato in for half an hour, not ten minutes (I was like thirteen, give me a break). I once backed into a neighbor's gas main and the fire department came and woke up the entire neighborhood at five in the morning because they thought they might have to evacuate everyone. I once turned on a light, not realizing that someone's sock (seriously though, wtf, sock) was on top of it and it started the sock on fire. The recycling bin lid fell off the bin and onto our heating grate and melted into the heater. There were flames and smoke with that one, too.

So it's not all my fault, I just seem to have a tendency to be around when things like that happen. Fire incidents aside, I have never gone camping without a tornado popping up wherever it is I'm camping (three times, but after the third time I just said fuck it and stopped going camping).

Tell me about your most faily situations so I feel less like a disaster magnet. :(

Oh. My. God. Book sales are nothing short of HEAVEN. Seriously. Our Lion's Club has an annual book sale where people just donate books and then they sell them cheap, and I went tonight and it was AMAZING. I was literally making grabby hands at the books. I didn't have a lot to spend so I was trying to really only get the ones that were cheap and in good condition or a little bit more expensive but such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. I ended up spending $12.50, and I got the following:

I maybe want to go back tomorrow and spend any money I can find in the couch cushions )

A few of the paperbacks are well-worn, but nothing bad. They had tons of Terry Pratchett books, but they were all hardcover and therefore more expensive, so. :-/

They also had like, fifteen copies of The Bridges of Madison County. Is that a terrible book? It got donated pretty often! They also had probably every single Dean Koontz book ever published, a whole room dedicated just to romance novels, and a bunch of vinyl albums. I was so tempted, but I didn't even bother looking at them, because I was having a hard enough time keeping myself in check with the books.

[livejournal.com profile] lover_youshould, you are adorable and every day should be filled with voicemails from kino! Especially with fic-reading! I love you too, dollface. ♥

[livejournal.com profile] sparkfrost, it's treating me pretty well! I got about four hours of sleep today and I'm still coherent, so. \O/ energy drinks!

Ahahaha, [livejournal.com profile] of_evangeline, I love that you texted me in a fake accent. Just fyi, I totally read it in my head with a bad Russian accent. :D

eta. LARRRRRS I HATE THAT I MISSED YOU! :(

I am probably really late on this where you are, but I have to send a great big Happy Birthday! to [livejournal.com profile] subtle__sarcasm. Kat, you are amazing in so many ways, I don't know how many times I've been cheered up just by seeing a post from you on my flist. You are adorable and generous and your enthusiasm is contagious, and I just really ♥ you an awful lot. I hope you had a fantastic birthday, sweetheart, you deserve it.

Dear Yuletide Writer:

rambling about my requests! )

Again, thank you, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide author, and if there's anything at all you want to ask or need clarification on, feel free to pass a message along via the mods and I'll ramble at you some more!

Popping in to say a very Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] immortal_lights! I hope it's a great one, and if there's anything I can do (fic, graphics, picspams, etc.) to make it better, please let me know! ♥

On the heels of my Christmas wishlist post, I come seeking information with which I can stalk you! I MEAN SEND YOU CHRISTMAS CARDS. >.>

I love love love sending out cards, and I failed so hard at it last year, so please don't be shy about giving me your information. I promise not to use it for anything skeevy, unless you like that kind of thing, in which case I will be the skeeviest. Even if you think I have your information, leave it again, just in case!

This is open to lurkers/people surfing in from friendsfriends, too, although I imagine you'd only want to fill out the Christmas card/name/address bits. ;)

[Poll #1294379]

And now a Christmas poll because I love polls! It's ridiculously non-inclusive of holidays other than the traditional Christmas, so feel free to skip it if none of them apply to you, or comment and tell me about some of your favorite non-Christmas winter holiday memories/traditions!

The Big Damn Christmas Poll )

Tell me all about your favorite/least favorite Christmases. Tell me about the creepy drunk Santa whose lap you sat on when you were little (or when you were big >.>). Tell me about the eccentric people in your family who make the holidays bearable/unbearable. Just tell me stuff!
