Another brief birthday update

If you missed it, wenchpixie posted a lovely J2 RPS story yesterday for my birthday. It left me with such a warm, happy feeling! Softly stated schmoop, Night Breezes Seem To Whisper (PG-13). I hope you like it too. :)

At this point in my life, I don't need a lot of physical presents, so the present-giving at home was low-key:

* A small in-kitchen under-counter TV/DVD player, for those nights when I get stuck in the kitchen while my favorite TV shows are on (can't see the living room from there). It'll add complication when everything goes digital (we're running coax off of an antenna), but still!

* Marcy Playground: MP3. Their final CD, with a really unfortunate title given recent technological changes. For awhile, I thought it was a single-track download. ;)

* The True Meaning Of Smekday. I raved about this book when I got back from summer vacation. It's juvenile fiction, but so what? Fantastic story, lots of dry humor, very creative. I had it in my hands for all of about 10 seconds before Christopher ran off with it to re-read it, but that's okay. ;)

I thought about adding a digital camera to the list, but the one I have is only 5 years old (40th birthday present)! Takes great pictures still, but it eats batteries like blazes. Unfortunately, that attitude has spread to the pictures themselves. I spent several hours in the last couple of days trying to get it to transfer the pictures from the in-camera memory disk to my PC. Success after about 20 tries, thank goodness, but still-- how aggravating. Suckers aren't cheap though, so I'll wait as long as I can.

Last night's Chuck-- oh Sarah/Jenny, your high-school pain explains so much. If only the show wasn't compounding it by moving your fake job to a place with a skimpy, form-fitting 'uniform' instead of the still-revealing but loopy Wienerlicious alpine maiden thing. :( Oh, and? Adam Baldwin FTW in last night's episode. He was clearly having fun. :D

Sam & Dean Gen

Supernatural Gen Drabble: From The Treasury Of Least-Loved Fairytales (PG, Crack)

Title: From The Treasury Of Least-Loved Fairytales
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen, Drabble, Crack)
Rating: PG
Summary: (post-4x01) The crack drabble on Once Upon A Time for win_non_con.
Author's Notes: The 'artistic' drabble is here. This one has no redeeming qualities. ;) Part of the drac_suite booty for the Treasure Hunt. It also suits the 100_ghosts "Once Upon A Time" challenge.

Requests for The Fall Fandom Free-For-All close down in a couple of days. If you haven't made your request, now would be a good time!

More to the point, THIS post has links to a number of requests where no offers have yet been made or no gifts have yet resulted. Some of the links are out-of-date (i.e., they've gotten offers/gifts), but several people haven't gotten anything. So in particular, if Stargate Atlantis, or BSG, or Bones (femmeslash), or Terminator:SCC (femmeslash), or Torchwood, or Heroes are fandoms you're familiar with, you might be able to fulfill someone's request. Please, have a look!

Also, yuletide is also open for fandom nominations (small fandoms only). Most of you probably know more about how that comm works than I do, but FYI!
