In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

Writer's Block: Shhh… Don’t tell  
Ooooo I like this one. Ok once upon a time I did keep my LJ a secret, and my love for fandom a secret, never really sure why, partly because I wanted something for me and also partly because I wasn't sure what people who had never been involved in, or were even aware of what fandom was would think of my love of squeeing over TV Shows and writing fanfic (especially slash fanfic because so many people still don't get the fascination) Then one day I was lying on the couch cuddling with hubby and he casually said "So I read your gay porn the other day" This led to me choking on my tongue then a long discussion about it and since then I thought know what if the person closest to me knows and has no problem, who gives a toss about anyone else. This has opened up my life in a number of ways, one it means I have people outside fandom to discuss fandom with, which is FUN, yes you still have the odd person who just doesn't get it, and my hubby still doesn't get my fascination with slash fic, but some of the discussions we have had about it have been bloody brilliant. two I have shared my writing with people I wouldnt have before and three, fandom friends have come to stay with me, and I have gone to visit them to the extent that my fandom life and my 'real' life have crashed and collided together. The people I text and email every day are a mix of fandom friends and local friends. My family know of and love some of my closest friends. My hubby personally thinks [livejournal.com profile] autumn_lilacs with her love of drag racing and ability to make a working car out of two bobby pins and a piece of thread is amazing. He thinks my treehouse goddess girls all sound nuts but very funny and that [livejournal.com profile] nachekana is a special kind of crazy. My sister in law thinks my hockey loving wifey [livejournal.com profile] faithbeckett and the NY dream chasing and florida native [livejournal.com profile] sablier_bloque sound awesomely cool and that [livejournal.com profile] veritas_st and [livejournal.com profile] dreamersdare are the coolest people to ever be stuck in a blizzard with and my little boy thinks his auntie V [livejournal.com profile] veritas_st sounds like but is prettier than Kate Middleton and is like a Princess cos she is English. So I have to admit I am more than happy that my LJ is my worst kept secret as it has opened up my world and relationships in a very unique way. Also in closing for those that do want to keep their LJ a secret, don't use a name people associate with you, google brought me up in my hubbys first search :P

I got some texts from [livejournal.com profile] maharet83 today and she is having a blast in Egypt, she is getting to go the hotel from the Agatha Christie book, Murder on the Nile then five days in Hurghada and she may be missing us, almost as much as we are missing her, but I doubt it.

In other news [livejournal.com profile] autumn_lilacs is made of awesome and should be hugged by everyone on the planet even though she doesn't like hugging and will probably run away screaming.

Also she got me to add a wonderful person [livejournal.com profile] luveskane with the words she is awesome and wonderful now add her, and I did and she is and I am glad that I did. So as I have been away from LJ for a while and am just settling back in and am in a mixture of fandoms and sometimes miss awesome people so please flist, tell me what awesome amazing people I should get to know :P

And in a last update I have decided that I must have a contrary personality, every fandom I enter I usually find a slash pairing to fall in love with. Then there is my most recent fandom/obsession Queer as Folk there are so many delicous slash canon pairings to fall in love with, and I have I mean I love Brian/Justin like air. So much so that they have gotten me writing again, but6 in amonsgt all this slash [livejournal.com profile] veritas_st and I have started co writing a fic, we send each other paragraphs via email and piece them all together, the amusing part? it is Het!!!!! yes we took the slashiest fandom EVER and started writing HET!!! what is wrong with me.


oooo no wait one more thing I am going out to get drunk tomorrow so will have a hangover so any request for hangover porn get them in now as it seems to make me feel better :P

Also everyone should go listen to this, it is beautiful

books books books  
Ok anyone who knows me, knows that I have a love affair with books that is almost unhealthy :P but the last couple of days have gotten me thinking of the books of my childhood. My son loves books almost as much as me and has always had a story at bedtime, now that he is getting older, we are moving onto the more fun books, Roald Dahl, the Chronicles of Narnia etc. At the moment we are reading the BFG and that is what is prompting this post.

I LOVE IT, as in i'm getting excited at bedtime to get to the next chapter, for the first time EVER he is getting to con me out of more than one chapter each night. I love Sophie, I love the BFG, his nonsensical words, his down to earth attitude to giants eating human beings or as he calls them beans. Every single night we are laughing and getting caught up in this story and it is like falling in love with a book and I remember that as a child (as an adult there have been a couple of books, Frankenstein, the HP series, the Demons Lexicon series, persusaion etc that I have fallen in love with) but as a child I devoured books like food. I fell in love with the worlds of Narnia and Middle Earth and with characters like Pippi Longstocking and Anne Shirly.

So my question to you my dear flist is

What books did you adore as a child and why? what made them special, have you reread them as an adult, are they still as good?

Back from camping!!!! and yes the first thing I did WAS to straighten my hair and no I do not think this means I have issues (although my husband insists it does) :P

I missed lj, yes that is sad isn't it :D but on the bright side I have new Sherlock to look forward too yayayayayaya (I will have the download link up soon for anyone who wants it) and new leverage tomorrow morning yay!!!!

Got some story notes for my prompts worked on, although the most work was done on the McShep one for the ever lovely [livejournal.com profile] veritas_st and the TSCC/Inception crossover for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] maharet83, speaking of which, she talked me into signing up for this

Do You Like To Write?


Like to write? Love TSCC? Great! There is a new challenge, called [livejournal.com profile] tscc_las, where you write a fanfic of at least 100 words every two weeks based on a different prompt. Then they get voted on and the person with the least votes is out that week and the person with the most is safe next week. Till you have one author standing who wins! What do you win? A snazzy graphic and a $10 GC to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. You don't even need to be a GREAT writer!

... who will come out on top?


Which looks like a whole lot of fun :D

second piece of news is that my (hopefully FINAL FINAL) operation is set for the 30th September and my consultant has advised that if I lose another stone (I'm 12lb down since my previous op yay) then they will try as long as my blood disorder permits it to do the surgery through keyhole which means less scarring and fewer complications so this is what I am aiming for. With that in mind I am starting a strict diet and gentle exercise plan to get me to target or above in the next seven weeks and I plan on talking about it asking for advice etc. I am going to filter it because I realise many people do not want to hear me ramble about such nonsense so if you want to be included on the filter, please let me know in the comments. I am going to be using my flist for advice, recipes and lots of motivation, but don't want to bore anyone :)y

Mags and the horrible, no good, very bad day :(  
Have horrid, horrid kidney infection which has landed me with bed rest. Yesterday was bearable but today is horrible, stuck in bed, intermittently falling asleep and then waking up and watching masterchef which makes me hungry, but then when I eat I am sick.

So my darling flist, point me towards happy, fics, pics, vids, new shows you think I should try, anything to make sitting in bed on my lonesome bearable!!!!

on the one happy point new Sherlock was v v good.
