Stuff That's NOT Happening...  
Which does not include spamming, apparently.

I'm not doing the Brutal Honesty Meme because I'm too thin-skinned for that kind of thing, and I also project that onto other people. ;)

So, for realz in general: If I write you fic for your birthday and you don't even acknowledge my birthday then, yes— that really hurts my feelings. And if you almost never respond to comments I leave on your journal... that hurts too.

From the other direction: Halfshell, you talk too much about RL randomness so plz stop! Also, you owe me comment-replies from the last millenium on your stories. And where's the porn?.

New topic: I went looking today (in a non-stalkerish way) for a user who used to be around the SPN fandom at the beginning. She had the most adorable userpics of herself (including kid pics), and I was hoping for some random happiness from them. But she's disappeared! Username was similar to magic_shell (somebody else has that now), and she was African-American. Anyone? Bueller?

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles-- I wish I'd liked this more. It was okay, but I kept losing focus after the first half-hour each week and so the plot's kind of vague. Perhaps this is why:
HalfshellHusband: Why is this kid Emo?
Me: They cast him because he's pretty. Prettier than the women, even.
HSH: But he's Emo!
Me: I can't help you there...

When that comes up multiple times during the show... it's kind of distracting, you know? Hope TWoP can help me out.

ETA: My distraction is the current Terminator actor Garret Dillahunt (also in "No Country For Old Men"), whose mouth so often forms the shape of an "M." It's bizarre! Half the time I don't even hear what he's saying. :0

I have been horrible in the "responding to comments" department. And most of my posts these days feel like they're all "Hi, I'm Branni. I'm bipolar. I write insanely long stories because I am manic. I write insanely bizarre meta because I think I'm some kind of classics scholar. Oh, and my personal OTP is Jensen+boots."

Sadly, I think the world would implode if I actually remembered someone's birthday. I notoriously suck at that, so I apologize if I've done so to you.

I think you eventually get to them, though-- I'm talking about people who just regularly don't respond. It's like a one-sided conversation. :(

But! Commenting on a birthday post with birthday greetings still works for me. :) It's the total absence of acknowledgement that hurts, especially if I've made a major effort for the person when it was their turn. So, all is good. :)

And as for the other stuff, it's your journal-- your place to post what you want! Even if I'm not personally in love with the boots (or even have an opinion on them one way or another!), I support your right to obsess over them. ;)
