Late Birthday request!  
I thought of something I should have asked for as a birthday gift from f-listies: a new banner for my "Other Fanfiction" page. I keep putting the request up for Fandom Stocking and such, but no one ever does it.

Basically, the wonderful banner I have is outdated. I'd like one that more accurately reflects what's on that page: Die Hard 4 John/Matt stories, Iron Man Tony/Rhodey stories, White Collar and Burn Notice stories, and possibly Chuck and Justified. Please and thank you, if you are so inclined!

So, I'm already getting emails from the Yuletide pinch-hit list. What is that all about? Signups just closed a week ago, how are people defaulting already? Or are some of those notifications for requests that didn't match any offers?

I got my own Yuletide assignment, and now remember what the fifth fandom was that I threw in at the end... because that's the one I got matched on. Oy. I'll have to see what the requester actually wanted there (hey, maybe that Yuletide Madness fic I started two years ago and never finished might fit!) One of the other requests is for Pushing Daisies, which I might do instead (though I remember from my one story in that fandom that capturing the narrator's voice is a lot of work)!

Other news: I'm so sleepy in the evenings, and then struggle to get out of bed in the mornings. How does the change of season always cause this, even when there's still plenty of daylight?

I made a resolution to be better at celebrating birthdays, and I already missed yours. I'm sorry! Anyway, happy birthday!

And the pinch hit list, yeah, IIRC there are always some that can't be matched and have to go straight to the list.

Thanks for the good wishes!

If it weren't for the LJ Birthday notifications, I'd be sunk-- my memory is just shot these days. :)

Happy Birthday!
I know I'm late but I still want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!
So has anyone answered the call for a banner?

Thank you! Always nice to hear from you. :)

No takers on the banner so far-- it's as if it's the Insurmountable Request or something!
