feliciakw: (Trouble=Dean)

The other day, I was telling gluisa88 how much great fic was written during S3 and the S3/S4 hiatus. There was such a wide variety. It was a season and a summer of angst and dread and desperation and anxiety, and an occasional glimpse of hope. Would Sam save Dean from the deal? What would happen if he didn't? Would Dean go to Hell? Would Sam get him out? (Of course he would!) How would Sam get Dean out? What if he didn't get Dean out? Would Dean come back? Would Dean come back as a demon?!? (A fate too horrible to even think about.)

The way show dealt with it was totally unexpected, and I about bounced off the couch with excitement, but there were some excellent, heartrending fics written in the meantime. There was even, iirc, a humor one that particularly delighted me.

I miss having fic to look forward to. )

I don't have a graphic to share, but my warmest wishes to my f-listies and lurkers for a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and joyous and blessed 2013.

This season, one of the songs from Trans-Siberian Orchestra has caught me.

Good King Joy )

[livejournal.com profile] scionofgrace, I thought you might be interested in this.

Geo really likes using fountain pens. Me, not so much. I don't have an even enough pressure to keep it from glooping and blotching. But today he brought home a Pilot Plumix Classic fountain pen. It writes really easily and has almost a calligraphy look to it. It's actually kind of fun.

Happy December, everyone. If you plan on reading my year in review, be sure to buckle your seatbelt. It's been a weird, weird year.

After nearly seven (seven? Really?) years on LJ, I'm seriously considering checking out DreamWidth for future blogging purposes. There's a rumor going around that LJ will within the next year be discontinuing paid accounts. I don't know what that means, or how the heck they plan on making money if your only options are free or permanent, but . . . ick.

Each year for the past several years, when renewal time has rolled around, it's been a fierce consideration whether or not to renew, lapse, or shut down completely. If LJ is going to get rid of paid accounts anyway, there's no reason for me to renew when the time comes, is there.

If anyone knows how to transfer my LJ archive to DW or even how to archive those years on my hard drive, I'd much appreciate it!

Sum up your opinion or impression of me in one word, leave it as a comment in this posting, and then post this sentence in your own journal.

Thank you for the thoughts, prayers, and condolences. I want to reply to each one individually and personally, but I'm so very tired right now, and my heart hurts. Please know that each post means something to me, and I appreciate it very much.

Thank you.

I've got a recipe I want to try, and the marinade calls for tequila. And lime. Probably trying to approximate a margarita marinade or something, yeah?

The problem being, I'm not real keen on tequila. But I LOVE lime, so I don't want to get rid of that. Is there something comparable that I could try to substitute for the tequila? Would rum work? Or beer, even? Or should I just give it a go with tequila?

Does anyone remember a S3/S4 hiatus fic wherein Dean could hear Sam playing the piano while he was in Hell, that that's what he held on to? I can't find it.

Happy Birthday, Cheese Elf! If my calculations are correct, you're entering the best years of your life! Have a grand day and a splendiferous year!

For those of my f-list and wider reading public who might be into "all-natural" or "organic" make-up products:

Can you point me in the direction of a good but relatively inexpensive lipstick/stain/color that is petroleum-free? It might also be certain dyes drying out my lips, but it seems the common denominator I've been able to identify is petroleum.

Most recently, cocoa butter has been the most moisturizing and healing, but when I tried Palmer's lip balm, (which I really rather like, alas. Same way I really liked Burt's Bees) it gave me the same troubles as lipstick, and the primary ingredient is petroleum jelly.

I've found a couple of products on-line that look promising, but I was wondering if anyone has specific recommendations for which they could offer testimonies. :-)

Had a very nice weekend this past weekend. The parental units came to visit for my b-day. The weather was unseasonably warm (I really do wish we'd get a substantial snow at some point. It doesn't feel like we've had winter at all), and we did a little downtown shopping, watched some TV (introduced the folks to BBC's Sherlock), and had people in for cupcakes and ice cream (on Saturday).

George made waffles for breakfast on my b-day, and we ate out at some of our favorite restaurants over the weekend. For my b-day dinner, we checked out someplace new, The Silk Mill Grill, which is in a building that used to be a parachute factory during WWII.

Geo gave me S5 of N3. From Mother and Daddy I got some spending money and a sweater. From my MiL, I got a little spending money and a nice mug.

Saturday was a lazy day, and people in, in the early evening. (Also, there's a new cajun place somewhere in town. George brought in red beans and rice for dinner. Yummy!)

Sunday was church, lunch at Giovanna, and nap time when we got home.

Birthday shout-outs )

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] kimmer1227! Have a fantabulous day!

Merry Christmas, one and all! May you have a joyous day celebrated with family, friends, food, fun, and faith.

If you happen to be in the midst of celebrating the Festival of Lights, a Happy Hanukkah to you.

If this is not your day to celebrate, may your day still be filled with happiness, friendship, peace, and love.

This is the illustration the minister used as the centerpiece of our Christmas Eve homily. It is a dramatized account of something that really happened. Heartwarming and thought provoking. Peace be with you.

Last year's illustration still holds particular meaning to me as George and I continue our adoption journey.

And now I must go make ganache for the peppermint ice cream torte for today's luncheon.

May the Spirit of Joy CASCADE MAJESTICALLY through your day.

Once upon a time, SPN had an episode set at Christmas time. The end of the episode was poignant and heartfelt and bittersweet and all that.

The final shot was a shot looking into the boys' motel room as they sat watching the football game, with the Impala right outside the door. Snow might have been falling, or maybe not.

There is an icon floating around somewhere, a gif, of that shot, with snow and the added touch of twinkle lights.

I'd very much like to snag that icon (with proper credit given), but I haven't seen it yet this season. (I should have snagged it when I first saw it. Maybe I did. Maybe it's on my laptop. Which is still in the shop.)

Anyone know the icon I mean? Care to point me in the right direction?

Not many of my f-list have posted the meme his year, but there are a few things that have been on my mind, either recently or for a while.

Step One )

Step Two )

My Wish List )

What is a reasonable day rate/hourly rate for someone who has little or no camera talent experience?
feliciakw: (celebrate)
Happy B-day! I'm a day early by my clock, but by yours I think I'm on time this year?

Anyway, *confetti* *party horns* Yay!

Question for those on my f-list who read my SPN commentaries. I'm very much planning to do a highlight reel of this week's ep because I loved it like pumpkin pie. But with life trying to run me over, I'm going to have to write it in pieces parts. I can either post as I complete each part or wait until the end. So my question is:

[Poll #1793199]

Happy Birthday, Carol!

I hope your day is fantastic!
