Sad news [Dec. 12th, 2009|12:24 am]
My Mom died this evening. She was 85 and was diagnosed as terminal in July. So, it was predicted, but I think these things always still come as a surprise. She died in her sleep after a bad couple of days. Her biggest wishes were not to suffer and, even more, to get to go be with my Dad. She got her wish.

I'm sad. Keep us in your thoughts or prayers for the next few days.

ADWD on BBCA [Apr. 6th, 2009|10:46 pm]
Does anyone here want to talk about ADWD now that we in the US are getting to see it?   In the hopes you do, I will start with -  Wow he was great this Sunday evening.  It was the ep with all 12 Joseph's and the "Daniel has the best voice" comment.  I agreed wholeheartedly.

Obama wins! [Nov. 5th, 2008|01:32 am]
[mood |jubilantjubilant]

Yeah!!!!!   I painted my nails blue in celebration, so I am sitting here watching to see which way NC goes and hoping the darn nails dry.  1:33 am.   Tired but happy about the presidency, our governor, and our senator (bye to Dole!).  Some good news on others' ballot initiatives, some bad.  I hope that someday soon the country that just voted a black man into office will do better by our gays.   Back to NC vote watching and reading some Janto while I wait.

Con.txt and meeting people [Jun. 17th, 2008|09:05 pm]
[mood |giddygiddy]

 Con.txt was such fun this past weekend.   It's such a shame to be back home in the mundane world.  And so busy catching up with RL.

But I got to go.  I had loads of fun.  I met lots of people.  I'm just like most folks whose con reports I've read and I don't remember half the names of folks, but I had a blast talking to folks.

Best new in-person buddies:  I met Dorothy1901 from KF:TLC fandom.  First time I've gotten to talk Fu in person!  We'd planned to meet and she found me (thanks lady).  Also found we have lots of fandom stuff in common.  And she showed me a bit more about this mysterious thing called livejournal.   I need to rewatch KF.  And watch more SGA and, hmmm, about 6 other things.  She also sent me the url to some good HL vids I hadn't seen before.  Yum.

After lots of years, I met J.S. Cavalcante whom I knew in K/S.  She and her cohort tried pimping me into Dur South.  Too late - I already read it.  Don't write it and need to rewatch episodes (so much homework I have from this con).  She's got gorgeous artwork.  I look forward to seeing again as she posts.  Also have to go look for her DS.  I adore her K/S; I will read anythign she has written.

To the women I talked Torchwood to in the bathroom.  Yeah!  Fun.  What is it about the bathroom as con.txt.  I always seem to meet folks there and get good info.  I wish I'd gotten names of the folks I talked to, but I did get some suggestions for authors and TW groups on lj.  Turned out I had joine one of them, but so recently that I hadn't really read it yet.  Frieded some authors, too.  Will be reading much fic asap.

Many more, but RL calls again.

Too long [May. 30th, 2008|06:54 pm]
[mood |determined]

I can't believe how long it's been since I've even tried lj.  I really meant to master it before con.txt this year.  

So much has been happening from 7 moths of recurrent mono to my kid doing college searches.  And. . . probably the most telling - I discovered Torchwood, so I've been watching Dr. Who over and over and Torchwood and every vid Ive found and JB signing and James Marsters discussions at cons and so much more.

Now, true to my slash roots, I need fanfic!!!  and people to discuss it with, so I have to wade in here and hope I can finally spend enough time in lj to get comfortable and find all those folks I've been missing.

First LiveJournal post [Jul. 15th, 2007|04:59 pm]
[mood |sleepysleepy]

The page looks so empty, so I have to post.  A friend set this up for me (Thanks Cat) but I still haven't figured out my way around.  I will keep pegging away.

Very mini me bio - I'm into SF and slash.  In fandoms, give me ST:TOS, SGA, SG-1, Sentinel, HP, Queer as Folk, Oz and whetever I've been pimped into lately.  Off-line is pretty boring.  Right now I have big plans to ge finnish reading an SG1 fic while finishing the laundry.  :)
