I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS

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!

**If you leave me a list of fandoms you're into (or two or three fandoms, at least), that would be very helpful! Thanks!

Climbing the 25-foot tall Monolith with my nephews, and then when that didn't kill me,



bouncing around on the Frogger at the Tulsa Zoo. Eat that, fear of heights.

Anniversary

Been married for six years now. :-)

To celebrate, we (Chris and I, the kids, mom, and Devin) headed to the Oklahoma Aquarium and then for late lunch/early dinner we went to Joe Momma's, which has absolutely awesome pizza. Devin ordered The Incinerator, and somehow managed to get through about half of it without running for a pitcher of milk.

And the waiter recommended a good place to get tattoos. ((I am trying to get my courage up so that whenever we can manage to save the money, I can get a small one))

Otherwise known as my parents' anniversary. 39 years today! :-)

Ian stayed up until midnight night before last. So last night, instead of trying to get a little more sleep, what do I do? Stay up until 2 a.m. mainlining the entire first season of The Walking Dead. I'm so smart.

Day 22's charity is Rescue Ink.

From their website:

"Rebel, originally named "Ribbons" because of his tattered, shredded ears, was found as a stray in Kentucky. The ligature marks on his legs and nose, as well as his severely infected, pus-filled ears, suggested he had been used as a "bait-dog" to train fighting dogs in a suspected dog-fighting ring. Rescue Ink swooped in and, with the aid of Animal Rescue Flights, flew Rebel home and offered him a new lease of life as the official Rescue Ink mascot.

With his scarred face and muscle-bound body, Rebel is a shining example of an animal's ability to forgive and live in the moment. He is a daily reminder of Rescue Ink's mission."

Whew

Just got done making Kaylee's birthday cake (she's 3 already; I cannot believe it), and some cookies and truffles for Christmas. Next year I'm going to be smart about the whole thing and do a gift package a week or something starting late November so I'm not trying to make 8 dozen cookies in one weekend. I love when I think of the obvious, simpler solution after it's a bit too late. :-)

In honor of the holidays, [livejournal.com profile] rm is doing a really nice post, where people in the comments give links to stuff they sell. I've found a bunch of etsy sites to bookmark; thought you guys might want to take a look around, too. :-) (and, if you have anything to sell, put up a link!)

Back!

And in a Halloween mood. Under the cut you'll find scary videos and a couple of creepypastas. Add your own; I love finding new stuff! ((I will hate myself at 3 a.m. for making this request, but oh well))

Back tomorrow with info about a new book, and hopefully a contest!

And now, my attempt to keep you from sleeping.

My first act of celebration in the new year was to get rid of some crap that really needed gotten rid of and help my kid make a clean start.

Which, of course, is just a more elaborate way of saying that I spent the minutes just after midnight changing a diaper.

This has been another segment of my wild and crazy life. Happy new year, everybody. :-)

Belated Halloween pics under the cut! :-)

But first, here's Kaylee with her current favorite toy-- Chris's cell phone.

Chris still hasn't decided on a costume. lol

We're heading out to visit his family and friends in a few hours, and then we'll come back to town and hang out at my parents' house for a while handing out candy.

We got Kaylee a little spider costume which is the cutest thing in the world, and I have a makeshift version of a Joker costume-- a white scrubs top, purple-and-green striped tights, a greenish wig, and some face paint. There will be pictures later.

Hope you're all having a great day!

Birthday

Since Chris is working, I'm over at mom and dad's and we're ordering pizza. :-)

Also, one of Kaylee's top teeth came in. Just one, making this little point. I have now nicknamed her Fang.

Chris and I are probably going to stay up until 3 or so watching M*A*S*H (we just got the fourth season on DVD). Wild and crazy, that's us. ;-) What are you going to do?

The M*A*S*H marathon will have to wait until Chris gets home, though, he has to work until 10:00. In the meantime, I'll write, or go through my music collection and make some mixed CDs. Dunno yet.

We actually have a nice amount of spare money for once-- hooray Christmas presents-- and that of course means character portraits. *plots*

I should post something deep and meaningful, but instead I'm just going to squee over the fact that when I was looking through a Valentine's Day aisle, I found raspberry Hershey's Kisses. Candycandycandy.

Happy New Year, everybody. :-)

Well, the running-around for the day is done . . . went to visit my parents, my grandmother, and Chris's family. All before 2:00, because that was when Chris had to be at work.

And we're probably going to be unconscious for a good long while tomorrow, because we stayed up until 3 in the morning last night (Devin brought over Dawn of the Dead and The Hills Have Eyes for nice cheerful holiday fare). Pictures from last night and this morning under the cut.

'Twas the night before Christmas and my brother was reenacting a scene from Trilogy of Terror because he's a freaking psycho )
changeyourstars8: (Christmas icon)
Had a lazy day yesterday. Chris worked on a puzzle-- the guy's an addict-- while I read him some short stories by William F. Nolan and Jack Ketchum. Then we went out and rented some movies. He hadn't seen any of the Highlander movies in a while but he'd liked the series as a kid, so we rented the second and third ones (nobody had the first) and ohmygoodness. Scenery-chewing and dorky eighties-movie special effects and just so much fun. :-D

In holiday-news, I was thinking about doing that meme where you think up ten things, big or small, that you want and see if anybody sends/makes them for you, but I could only think of two-- fanart for Karavan's Mirror, or donating some money to any of the charities on my sidebar. So instead of scrambling frantically for eight other items to pad the list, have a stocking to fill. *s*

my xmas stocking )

I also got a Christmas icon from [livejournal.com profile] iconseeyou. Hee.

ETA: Here's the post where I got my icon: over 200 of them; something for everybody. :-D

changeyourstars8: (Don't mind her. . .)
Yesterday, going to work was fun for once. I was almost late because of wildlife.

I saw a couple of blurs race across the road, and drove forward a bit further and paused. A few seconds later, the blurs are back-- two raccoons, bounding across the street, chasing each other. They tussle in the ditch for a minute, and then back across they go. At this point I put on the brakes and just sit there watching as the one chasing leaps from the street all, "Death from above!" into the ditch and lands on the other one. Then they both seem to realize, "Oh crud. Headlights." and dart off into the trees.

:-)

Speaking of crazed animals, our Halloween party is tonight. Expect pictures, once I recover from the anticipated hangover (Chris's cousin is bringing Jello shots, and I have a bottle of amaretto).
changeyourstars8: (Long Way Round--  reading)
On the bad side: Got another rejection slip in the mail today. If at first you don't succeed, drink some margaritas. ;-)

On the good side: Second chapter of Karavan's Mirror is up.

And in other news, our Halloween party is this Saturday. The house is scary but not in a good way; I have part of a costume and Chris has none; and we have no food. We're so organized it's inspiring.
