Birthday Thanks!  
Finally, I can use this icon for my own birthday. :)

I'm so behind in posting this-- it's been a crazy day and weekend, and I can finally read all the lovely greetings and ficlets and visit the virtual gifts from all of you. Thank you so much! I'll be updating with details as I go.

Yesterday was soccer, family chores, exercise, and logging in to find out I had work to do for my drac_suite team for the win_non_con Treasure Hunt! We went out for a pre-birthday dinner and movie date (yay!), and then I started working on my assignments at around 10pm. By 2:30am I had to call it quits because we had a trip planned for today.

Checked on the team this morning around 10am (ack-- the deadline, as it turned out!), and then we had a family trip to Apple Hill for crafts, fresh donuts, caramel apples, some cider, and... not so much with the pumpkin purchases. Wonderful trip, and a great dinner at home with cake and presents. Plus, family phone calls.

While I was away, SO many wonderful people sent virtual LJ gifts and posted greetings and ficlets.

dotfic, particlesofgale, thehighwaywoman, deirdre_c, dhvana, tuesdaeschild, destina, heliokleia, jasmason, and wendy, sent virtual balloons, champagne, party hats, cupcakes, and a party tape for a fabulous and complete celebration. But the best part, honestly, was reading your messages with the gifts. Your words touched me deeply. :)

I heard from deadbeat_nymph, trueshellz, pixel_0, dove95, gekizetsu, huggenkiss, laser_radiation, lissa_bear, gatheringlight, jasmasson, wrldpossibility, lampshade_days, strifechaos, and heliokleia, some via email, some via posts or LJ messages. All of you had such heart-warming things to say, and I really appreciated them.

happywriter06 made me a Sam and Dean collage, and lady_iz created Dominic and Wentworth virtual card for me. I also got a cupcaked Sam and Dean from huntress69, and a Dean-based virtual card from jolietjones! \o/

badboy_fangirl gave me Dominic Purcell picspam, as she is one of the other ladies from the Prison break fandom who was always more obsessed with Lincoln than Michael. That post shows why I like to call Dominic walking!ManSex.

msgenevieve wrote me a wonderful Michael and Lincoln drama ficlet about one of my favorite Season 1 moments.
ethereal_flaim braved the SPN-verse to write a Season 4 Sam and Dean ficlet with moodiness, questions and compromised regrets.

iamastealthyone wrote this Sam and Dean drabble, which pulls you in and then twists on you and is somehow perfectly Sam and Dean to the end.

rosie_spleen wrote SPN AU Crack for me, with added metaphorical abuse FTW. :D

wenchpixie wrote softly-stated J2 RPS schmoop, with Night Breezes Seem To Whisper (PG-13). It gave me such a warm, happy feeling. :)

Also, an anonymous person gave me two months of paid LJ time, which was so sweet and unexpected! Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity!

Thank you, one and all, for such a lovely birthday. What a fantastic group of friends you are!

Happy Birthday dear! I wish I had words to write something for you but I send you the happiest of birthday greetings!

Thank you, pheebs! Glad I caught this one as I was shutting the computer down-- it's after midnight, and I stayed up too late compiling this post (7:30 wakeup call tomorrow), but it was worth it just to touch bases with you.

Thanks so much for the wonderful wishes, and I hope all of them add up to a good year ahead. ♥

Thank you, Anakin! Nice to see you're still around LJ these days.

It was lovely, and so busy that I stayed up far too late just finishing up this post. But I blame much of that on the win_non_con insanity. :0

Hahaha... OMG, where did you get this icon, Puppet Momma? - Did you make it yourself? LMAO
First, I had to look twice, but then...^^
*cackles weirdly*

I wondered the same thing. It makes it look as if Dominic is starring in a new Jesus biopic soon...

*giggles* Now wouldn't that be fabulous?!!! But he's actually the extraordinarily virile Captain Burrows! A silly "bodice-ripper" fic that chanchito made me write! That woman is dangerous...but adorable! :)

Maz (or foxxy!): Extraordinarily Viriletuesdaeschild on October 23rd, 2008 09:36 am (UTC)
No, chanchito made it for me! Fabulous isn't it? :)

Hehe! Pirate icon!! Love it!

I hope our lovely hostess doesn't mind us messing about in her journal. *looks hopefully at the birthday girl* :)

Oh, how could I miss this?! - ah, remember... thanks to my uncooperative computer... anyway...

Belatedly I wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!! ♥
Hope you had a wonderful day with your family and friends and that they made some of your wishes and dreams come true ;-)

That's all why you are worth it, my dear Mme Venus!^^
*nods**nods*

So, it was a all happy day, I presume...^^

It was a very nice day-- kind of scattered, but with all the good things one could wish for a birthday, from friends and family alike. :D

Happy belated birthday!! I'm glad you had a good time and hey, you deserve all the gifts showered on you. :))
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on October 20th, 2008 05:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much! Yes, it was a lovely day. Perfect weather, too-- more like fall and less like summer, which helps make it seem more "birthday-like" for me. :)

It was, and thanks so much for the party hat and the wonderful wishes.

I hope you had a wonderful time at Wincon-- your first ever!
