Happy Birthday to Maygra and Dragon9Maiden

Many happy returns to you both!

I first met maygra's talents via her "False Comforts" post-Skin Supernatural story, and it's still one of my favorites. Many months and many stories later, I'm still awed by her talents. And more than that, her warmth and generosity touch me-- even when fandom is in an uproar, or RL things are hectic or less than ideal, that graciousness still comes through. I aspire to her emotional maturity, as I cannot aspire to her writing skills!

I hope this is a good year for you, dear lady-- better than the last one, both in opportunity and in ease. And if all goes well, I hope to meet up with you at Wincon in October. :)

I met dragon9maiden through the Prison Break fandom, and she's been rather quiet of late but I hope is still around to read this message. Her comments on stories are wonderfully thoughtful and in-depth, and always a pleasure to read. They make the writing more than worthwhile-- they make the effort with characterization and dynamic and flow meaningful, by their intelligent notice and discussion.

I hope you're having a good birthday as well (perhaps nearly over, in your part of the world!), and that the coming year brings you much joy and happiness. :)

C'est moi! Maybe...

The Golden Compass meme says that this is me: Collapse )

Just began a new Patricia McKillip book at the gym today, and wanted to keep reading after my elliptical time was up (but no-- off to the hated weight room). There are NO new Men's Health mags at the gym since about November-- that's my second favorite after the glorious trash-fest that is People magazine.

Also, I may or may not have snapped the head off of the flexible shower wand in the women's locker room at work. *hums innocently* It's been loose and leaky for awhile, and apparently it was joined by wimpy welded plastic. Well, I guess the repair folks will seriously understand that it needs work now, huh?

Hey, it's SPN day! Did anyone notice except me? :P
