I've been busy but very happy. New job and new guy are the best.
How are you all? Give me the update!
Hey flistas! How do you do? I certainly wish I could find more time to keep in touch here. Just checking in to say hello. Here's a list of stuff:
New job is great
New guy isn't so new anymore, but he is still amazing. I'm digging him completely and he is on the same page.
new car is still lovely
settling the accident this week.
will start on the other old job related issues next.
Editing chapter 59 of Reconstructing Evil. Should post on Halloween. If I can complete it in chapter 60 I will and try to post that before Thanksgiving. I'd love to finish one :-)
Anyway, lovelies I'll check in soonish.
So a lots happened....
Car accident - not my fault. My car was totaled. Got a new one. Charger - she's nice!
Back, neck, shoulder, elbow and knee were all injured. Working those out with the dr and PT.
Almost ready to be released. And there is a court-case for my bodily injury.
Went to Vegas - new guy - Awesome guy. Extremely handsome. We are good together. If I wasn't on the pill there'd be a baby :-P
4th of July - my parents, my ex-inlaws and a few other relatives all landed in PHX. We ate, drank, laughed. Good time for all.
Got fired - big set up. mostly cant discuss it right now because this is another lawsuit. Once that dust settles I'll provide the incredible details. incredible as in you wont believe people actually treat people this way and expect to get away with it.
since I have no job, jumped in my new baby and hit Cali where Mr Awesome lives. Visited my parents as well and hit my old neighborhood in Sacramento. Back from that now :-(
Got new job - same pay so really happy about that, and I start on Sept 1!
heading back to Cali next week for more fun. Beach camping, hiking...
How are all of you?
My promise to post more kinda flew out the window for a while.
In March, I had an awesome 50th bday party back in California. Held it at a spirits lounge downtown Oakland. Very nice. About 40-50 friends and family showed up. Got a new guy out of the deal so that was nice as well. I do like him so, we shall see where it goes.
Then Easter and prep for that.
Then so much work to do at work. And then another trip to the Bay for my friends 50th. Her party was even more fab. I enjoyed it immensely.
Then back to Phoenix and more work, work, work.
So hello everybody!
The heater is fixed!
Not that it was ever really freezing but I did sleep in sweats a few nights.
Made some chicken vegetable soup and biscuits for dinner. That was tasty and low carb (cuz I skipped the biscuits). Now to try to get some sleep.
How's your week been?
Ok the heater went out today. Could be the thermostat or something else. I opened a ticket with American Home Shield and a tech should be out in a few days.
Meanwhile, I'm using a few space heaters. I went to buy one at Walmart and forgot my wallet. I had $20.15 in my pocket but it came to $20.40. The lady would not let me slide for a quarter. Had to back home then went to TARGET instead. Paid a dollar more but closer to home so...
Good part is it was 75F today and will only drop to 42 tonight. So I shouldn't be too cold.
glad it happened now and not in the middle of the crazy hot summer.
NYE - went to see Jay Pharaoh for a night of stand up comedy. he is the guy who plays Obama on SNL. Anyway he's the Brats good friend so we had really good seats then hung out with him and his family backstage afterwards until about 3am. I'd met his sister before when they came for dinner earlier this year, but this time his parents were there too. he came over on New Year's Day and they all did improve half the night with the little kids. It was fun. He's a good kid and is doing very well. I'm glad he gets a chance to relax away from press when here.
How 's life treating ya'll.
Spike on the brain!
Nothing new there.
How was everyone's Christmas?
My cousin and parents came to town. The units are still here but the cousin went back today. All said, we had a nice time. And I got some nice goodies from Santa. And he didn't even try to eviscerate me!
I've been getting some decorating done. Got the exterior light up and need a few more things before the outside is complete. I'm about to pick up my tree today, if it stop raining.
And to those that requested cards, I am doing those on Sunday so you should see them next week!
If I haven't mentioned it, the Brat and her boyfriend have moved in here temporarily. They have had a hard time job wise and are just trying to get back on their feet. I expect that they will be here through February and by March will be good to go.
While its a not crowded, I am out of the habit of sharing my space so it is challenging for me to just let things be. But the very good thing is having them here for the Holidays.
How are yall doing out there? Any special plans?
If anyone would like a holiday card from me, please leave your full address in a (screened) comment.
I'm out here in the desert now and it is so not Christmassy so I look forward to buying winter wonderland cards for sharing. I will send internationally as well.
If I missed anyone's sign-ups, please leave me a link to it, so I can sign up. If you had my old address, I've moved so let me know.
What a day!
There was a incident at work where we lost a customer and a lot of revenue with him. He was a serious pain but the bottom line is there was a failure on our end and my co-worker feels like our boss was being a certain kind of way toward her and she is not happy about their interaction.
I tried telling her that I dont think he feels like that at all but she is taking it into herself. I hope tomorrow she is in a better space. She is a great spirit and I dont want anything bad for her.
The the brat got laid off. she is in a funk now. I hope she finds something soon. she really likes making her own money and handling her life. And I dont particularly like grumpy!Brat sooo...
Better note...my friends bday party is Saturday. I plan to have a lot of fun. We are expecting a wild bunch of folks. Can't wait.
I hope everyone's day has been awesome!
So I've been missing LJ and the friends here. Life has been super busy though so it's hard to keep up. Also it seems like a lot of my fandom left. Like my old school Yahoo groups / Geocities folks. I know a few of you are still here so I'm hoping to catch you sometimes as I try to post more and read more.
Now. How are you doing out there?
A Christmas Slay

Warnings: Beta'd my me so... Spoilers up to BtVS, S4 and AtS, S1. Adult themes and situations, evil vampiric acts of mischief, and general Hellmouthy fun.
Summary: What really happened after Willow's spell ended.
A/N - IWRY took place, but when the Powers reversed the day, they missed something. Something Blue occurred as well, but Spike and Buffy did more than snog.
Feedback is appreciated.( I seemed to remember you at my feet, idolizing, on many occasions...Collapse )
