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!
quarterturn: (bandom - fi - scream for me)
I am gonna be spammy today probably. So look out for that!

First and foremost, Happy Birthday to Frank Iero! He and I are officially the same age again, although he's thirty days younger than me. :D

I did a bad thing last night. I caved and watched The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe. It was so, so bad. I didn't go into it expecting anything great, but it was so much worse than I expected. Kiefer Sutherland's half-brother is in it! I thought it would at least be good in that cheesy way! spoiler that may ruin your enjoyment of the first movie if you never plan on seeing the second, so beware )

Holy geez, that Halloween Trick or Treat meme thing got tons more replies than I expected, I am so psyched to give all you hooligans a treat (or maybe a trick if I'm feeling particularly mean :D). Feel free to head on over and knock, but I can't guarantee everything will be done before midnight tonight.

I bit the bullet and signed up for NaNo. (Other NaNo-ites, be my friend!) *facepalm* I do actually have a story in mind, which is better than the last time I signed up with not even a clue of what to write. I'll probably do a filter, because I don't want to subject anyone to listening to me brainstorm/whine if they don't want to!

[Poll #1288869]

Speaking of polls, if you're a new friend (or an old one, for that matter) and haven't filled out this poll, please do!

This is kind of amazing. It's a book where each chapter is written using only one of the vowels.

Hope you guys are having an amazing Halloween so far! ♥
quarterturn: (bd - everybody be cool)
Four things, super quick, and then I have to go do actual work. Blergh.

- Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] katilara! I hope it is fantastic, amazing, and bountiful. If there's anything I can do to make it better, just let me know. I'm more comfortable with graphics than fic right now, but if want to prompt me in the hopes that inspiration strikes, I'd be happy to try!

- You should all go read this. It's empires/PATD, Sean/Brendon, and it makes my heart go "OH LIFE IS GRAND."

- [livejournal.com profile] wastethesewords - it's a WIP challenge, take something you've had sitting around for a while and finally get it done. I have about nine MILLION of these, so I'm definitely signing up.

- I am so nosy you guys. I mean curious! >.>

Please feel free to discuss this to your heart's content in comments.

It's been a while since I've done one of these, so here it is. Participation is optional, obviously, and feel free to answer all of them or just the ones you're comfortable with.

[Poll #1212440]

And because I'm in a nosy mood today, I guess:

I got the most delicious package in the mail yesterday, thanks to my beloved [livejournal.com profile] meegzi31. It was full of all these wonderful little things like a bracelet kit and Care Bears bubble gum and a Hello Kitty smarties dispenser and a teeny tiny little dream book and HOMG stickers of the Candy Land/Strawberry Shortcake/My Little Pony variety and candy and gels and lotions and perfumes and lip glosses and just! !!! Like, I literally just kind of wanted to eat the whole box, bubble wrap and all. Meghan, I adore you, darling. So very much. Thank you for all the wonderful treats. ♥

And because I just have to, some of the stuff she sent me was the brand mark., and it is so delicious. So if you happen to have any cosmetic needs (they have the most amazing lip gloss, and they also sell some clothes/accessories and lotions and the like), definitely check them out. The link goes to Meghan's page (she's a representative.)

I went drinking the night before last, the first time in a while, and got beautifully buzzed on tequila sunrises. Ok. More than a little buzzed. Not completely wasted, but drunk enough to have a sudden epiphany about my love for ducks, and drunk enough to tell anyone who would listen about said epiphany ("But they have webbed feet! Webbed feet! And they're beautiful!") I don't know, either.

I've seen a little bit of the Milo/Hayden stuff floating around, and while I'm not terribly opinionated one way or the other (my mom and dad are ten years apart, and met when they were similar ages, and I've dated someone near ten years older when I was nineteen), I'm interested in how opinionated some people are. So I have a question that will best be answered using a poll.

This is far from scientific, bbs. It's seven in the morning, what do you expect? If I left anything off or you feel you'd better represent yourself in a comment than in a poll, feel free! I might not be up for discussion until later in the day, but I will be up for it. And if you want, you can spread this around, since I don't think I have many Peter/Claire or Milo/Hayden shippers on my list, and I'd be interested in getting feedback from a variety of people.

Putting out another call for holiday cards, if you want one! If you already left your address in this post, don't worry about leaving it again, although I would appreciate you filling out the second half of this poll. And listen, do not even be stubborn and not leave your address just because you're not sending out cards. I HAVE the cards. If I don't send them out, they go to waste. So by leaving your address, you're doing me a favor.

[Poll #1096244]

I've seen a few people post these so far, but more of you need to get on that. Even if it's just fannish stuff you want, I'd like to try and grant as many as I can this year. And if you've posted one, link me! Obvs you are under no obligation to even try to grant any of these, it's just a just in case kinda thing. :D

Step One

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

If you need my address for anything, e-mail me. I know it kind of ruins the surprise, but I'm not totally comfortable putting it in a non-friends locked post. :-/

I think I do one of these polls like every three months, but due to the fact that I am a) totally scatterbrained and b) there are new people on my list, let's do another one.

[Poll #1072502]

I know a lot of people have decided to boycott LJ financially, and that includes LJ gifts, so I just want to make sure I'm not going to offend someone by sending them one.

ETA: This is in no way implying that you have to get me anything in return if you indicate you don't mind LJ gifts, I apologize if it came off like that at all.

Speaking of birthdays, there are two on my flist today, [livejournal.com profile] traceace and [livejournal.com profile] mytimehaspassed, two super girls that I'm psyched to know. I hope you both have a fantastic day! ♥

ramble-y RL-type stuff )

/ ramble-y junk that you don't care about hokai.

So, TV! Which, gosh, I watch way too much of.

Dirty Sexy Money 1x01, 1x02, 1x03 )

Dexter 1x01, 1x02, 1x03 )

Supernatural 3x02 )

Which brings me to a question I've been pondering: just how many women has Dean slept with? (Saying he's only slept with women, which I'm not, but. That's a question for another time.) So, poll!

This poll isn't to gauge how many times he's had sex, because I'm sure we're all aware that if you have Dean Winchester in your bed, you do not stop at once. Ever. Just how many women overall he's been with. I know the number increments are wonky, but they seemed to fit.

poll! )

Supernatural, continued )

Heroes 2x04 )

This is super long. If I had something to offer in appreciation of your reading, I'd offer it, but seeing as how the rain that we've been having for TWO WEEKS STRAIGHT makes my internet connection stop working every five minutes or so, I have not been doing any uploading. So you'll just have to take my less fun thanks very much. ♥
quarterturn: (ga - denny/blown up guy haha)
I did a birthday poll not too long ago, but my flist has shifted and rearranged quite a bit since then, so it's now new and improved, now with 100% more questions about graduation! The poll isn't viewable to anyone but me, so don't be shy with those dates. I only want to know for the best of reasons, I promise. *halo*

Today is my day to knuckle down and get stuff done, but I have to pause and post quickly, because the reveal was done for [livejournal.com profile] big_little, and I just have to say, um, who got the best big sister in the world? That would be ME.

Do you know what I got ON TOP of all the awesome stuff I got throughout the week? I got a package from my big sister, aka [livejournal.com profile] such_jaunt, filled with THE AWESOMEST STUFF IN ALL AWESOMEDOM. Candy, and a fluffy pen, and a plush dog, and a book about BFFs (because we totes are), and a mix CD about friends (because again, totes), and bracelets (WHICH HELLO, IF YOU KNOW ME AT ALL YOU KNOW I LOVE MY BRACELETS) and one of them even says "Jess BFF" because yeah, if you didn't get the 'we totes are' by now, you haven't been reading. AND YOU GUYS. A MY LITTLE PONY FROM 1982. MINTY EVEN. She's beautiful and green and has shamrocks, and she is now the BFF of my other MLP, Daybreak, which [livejournal.com profile] dementedlove sent me not too long ago, and just. Yeah. I mean, I must have done something REALLY REALLY good in my past life to get friends like these. Barbara, we are going on that road trip someday, come hell or high water. Thank you so very much, for everything, for being amazing and making me feel amazing and loved and being my big sister. ♥

Is there a way to say thank you more? Like is there a phrase that means 'thank you times a trillion kabillion'? Because I need that, someone should get on inventing that phrase.

And hee, my little sister was [livejournal.com profile] stepliana, and I adore her, and I had such an awesome time giving her stuff. Except when her RL friend was like YOU ARE A CRAZY STALKER AREN'T YOU. LMAO. No really, even that was ok because it just means she's got friends that look out for her and that's A-OK by me. :)

And ok, a quick poll because I now have a TBD/SPN crossover fic stuck in my head thanks to [livejournal.com profile] schneestern (DAMN YOU *shakes fist menacingly*) and I need your opinion:

the question is cut because I just realized it might be spoilery for those who haven't seen the show yet ) Predominantly, anyway. If none of the things I've thought of sound quite right, leave me a suggestion in the text box.

I'd like to know a little bit more about everybody on my list. Seriously, answer this poll and make me a super happy panda. I need more birthdays to add to my Google calendar! (The results are viewable only to me, so don't worry about your information getting spread around.) :)
