Dennis Hayashi Slashes My Husband With Our Neighbor!  
Hello my lovely f-list peeps. A few items of newsy-news in my world. NOT in order of importance, mind you.

1. Dennis Hayashi apparently slashes my husband with our (male) neighbor! We live in a duplex, and our address is differentiated from said neighbor only by letter, not number. This distinction apparently escaped Dennis Hayashi (a local candidate for judge) because his campaign mailer was sent jointly to my husband and the neighbor. No mention for me, despite the fact that I'm registered with the same political party as my husband! Hee hee. I am kind of tickled that Mr. Hayashi apparently thinks they're a gay couple.

2. The lovely, gracious, and infinitely talented rivers_bend just found out that a short story of hers was accepted for publication in an anthology of erotic fiction! An actual book! How awesome is that!? And it's her first submission EVER to a professional publication and she gets accepted. It surprises me not at all, but thrills me to death. If you see her around, tell her congratulations, because she is MADE OF AWESOME! And once more, darling river, huge congratulations and SQUEEEEEs and OMG x infinity.

3. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to karaokegal! Not only does she have rockin' ideas for parties (can't wait for halloween!) but she is the queen of House/Wilson angst - you know, the kind that stabs you in the gut, twists the knife, and then leaves you bleeding to death in the gutter in the pouring rain. Y'know, the good kind. ;) So of course, for the angst-queen lover of karaoke, the most perfect song imaginable is John (sometimes "Cougar") Mellencamp's Hurts So Good.

-ahem-

*clears throat, begins warbling loudly off-key*

"Hurts so good - come on baby, make it hurt so good! Sometimes LOVE don't feel like it should; you make it hurt so good."

(And, m'dear, I hope you appreciate it, because that's the closest you'll EVER get to me singing in public! *g*)

oh, and

4. To the moron in the carpool lane - NO, the person you're talking to on your cell phone does NOT count toward the required number of people in your car. Get the f**k out of the carpool lane, you BMW-driving a**hole!

Ta, my darlings! Come pop in and tell me how you're doing, won't you?

ETA: Psst! There's flagrant music cat photo swapping going on in the comments to this entry, so feel free to join in or snag anything that strikes your fancy.
 
 
How do I feel?: cheerfulcheerful
What do I hear?: John Mellencamp - Hurts So Good

*claps* Lovely singing, m'dear! *swipes cat photos*

And since you asked, I'm getting better. The headache's leaving, and the muzziness is gone. The only thing left to do is remove the fatigue, but I think that's from PE this morning.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear you weren't feeling well, but very glad you're getting better! It seems like there is an absolutely horrid cold that's making the rounds right now - everyone I know has been sick!

*shudder* P.E. Yuck. One of the major consolations of being an adult is NO MORE P.E.

Hee, glad you're enjoying the cat photos, and you're very kind about my dreadful singing. ;)

Hah, real life RPS, there's nothing like it. This weekend I found a lamp for sale called Yuri. Not quite as exciting as finding out that your husband is slash material, but enough to make me smile.

Get the f**k out of the carpool lane, you BMW-driving a**hole!

BMW- and Mercedes owners are a species all of their own. *eye-roll*
Sky: [veronica mars] argyle of doomskyblue_reverie on October 25th, 2006 01:20 am (UTC)
Real life RPS is the awesome. I totally slash my brother with his best friend, so I understand the impulse. *g* Er, not that I write smutty fics about them or anything, you understand. I just think they'd be an adorable couple.

I have to confess my ignorance here - what or who is Yuri?

I share your eye-roll. I was quite disgusted with BMW's recent series of radio ads which had a snooty guy basically saying that BMW drivers are just better than other people. I beg to differ!

Ha! Hey Hon! It's pretty rare for non celebs to be RPSed, isn't it? Very cool :) If you go to Dennis Hayashi's web site and find a list of fics with your husband and neighbor together, you'll know for sure.

I am so happy and proud for River_bend, and I must know the title of this book so that I can buy it when it comes out. Besides which, you can never have too many anthologies of erotic fiction - you just cant! (((((cyber hug of congrats to River_bend))))))

Happy Birthday karaokegal! *drops over to check out her lj* I can't wait for the halloween bash! I'll be there with MST bells on!
*Grabs mus...um, cat photo*

*gets together with Skyblue and gives the finger to all a**holes who can't drive!

Haha! I'm... not sure I want to know, actually. *g*

Yay for river! And I'm totally buying the book too, as soon as it comes out.

Hee hee, I can't wait for Halloween either! I'm counting the days. Glad you're enjoying the music. :)

People who think the rules just don't apply to them really piss me off. It's one of my big pet peeves. I rarely give anyone the finger, but this guy deserved it! I got a good, clear look into his car as he cruised by me while I was stuck at a dead standstill in the next lane over. There was no one in his car but him. And his cell phone.

Virtual singing for me? How cool am I! I love making people sing, especially people who insist they will never sing in public. In fact, I'm thinking if the Halloween party is the stunning success I'm expecting (and none of us end up being interviewed by Nancy Grace) I'm thinking of maybe throwing a Karaoke Fic party in February or March. In other words, song prompts for everybody, do with them as you will. Not necessarily song-fics or singing, just a lyric to use as inspiration or by quote or by inference or anything else.
Sky: [veronica mars] v/l epicskyblue_reverie on October 25th, 2006 01:31 am (UTC)
Oooh, a karaoke fic party sounds great! I'd participate in that. I probably wouldn't do an actual songfic, but yeah, as inspiration or whatever, sure. And the Halloween comes-as-you're-not thing must definitely become an annual tradition.
Fluffy: Georginaflufshepherd on October 25th, 2006 12:24 am (UTC)
Hee! Very funny about your husband getting RPS'ed. Things like that make me happy, too.

I'm still working on the prompt you gave me. I've got a bit written and I know where it's going, but I never realized how difficult it is writing Bertie's POV. I always assumed it'd be easy since it's so casual and upbeat but it's much harder than it looks. Ah well, I'm just happy to be writing again! Thanks again for the prompt! =-D
Sky: [veronica mars] v/l first kissskyblue_reverie on October 25th, 2006 01:35 am (UTC)
Oh, Bertie voice is definitely very difficult! That's why I started with Jeeves's POV for my first fic. *g* You can always do that, or even a third-person, if you feel like Bertie's voice is too hard. But I'm sure you can do it, if you want to!

You're very welcome for the prompt - I hope it gets you past the evil writer's block.

Simple things like real-life RPS are lovely, aren't they? I guess we're just easy to please. :D

*stares at random babble* Slash...your husband.... singing horrible 80's pop off key... and you saw ME in the carpool lane...? *narrows eyes* You've been into my stash of sugar and crystal meth again, heven't you? I've told you about that stuff, love! POP ROCKS KILL!

Oh, so YOU were the jerk in the BMW! I might have known. :p Just kidding, my darling.

Boo!
Hey, there...sneaking up on you from one of your October posts. :)

I just had to share the new icon. I love the way it turned out. Heh..."boon."

*coughcoughcough* Yeah, I know it doesn't really mean that, but it's delightfully slashy. ;)

Stephen Quote for the Day (Boffle): You've been patient, you've been glossy, you've been surprisingly supple. I've enjoyed being fabulous with you.

Aaah! *jumps* Geez, you startled me. ;)

Gorgeous icon, and yes, that was a lovely slashy line. :D

*whimper* You know what it does to me when you bring the Stepheny goodness like that. *wibble*
