Okay, I'm turning in my girl card.

I got the loveliest manicure set at work for Secret Santa. I have *no idea* how to use it.

There is cuticle remover gel. And cutile massage gel. And buffing lotion. There are a variety of weapons available, some of which I swear I saw on a History Channel ep involving the Spanish Inquisition. Did you know there is a separate polish for botton adn top coats?

Am I the only one who stared at this thing thinking, dear God. Dear, dear God.

Some of these things have *sharp edges*.

*Weapons*, people. Sharp little weapons that, apparetnly, are to be used in some fashion on your nails. What kind of a world do we live in where we torture our own nails?

Yeahh. I need a book. Does anyone have a book on this?

Things I Have Decided I Would Commit Minor Murder For

1.) A follow-up to rivkat's and mustangsally's Spiders. Mostly because I want to know what favor the demon doctor will call in, but more Buffy/Spike would not be amiss. At. All. That's probably far too much to ask. I will anyway. And I will look with great anime eyes at the authors in hope, because I also lack shame.

2.) I want not to suddenly feel urges toward Buffy/Giles. This is the fandom I never belonged to where I OTPed Buffy only, apprently, as I was happy with all her men, except Riley, who I desperately wanted to watch die in some macabre fashion involving demon porcupines and lip gloss. I'm a very bad person. But yeah. Buffy/lint would probably do it. She's like Lex to me. Goes with everything.

3.) Clex Christmas fic. Something involving out of control mutant reindeer and an evil Santa that steals Christmas presents. And strangely, this still sounds like a reasonable storyline to me.

Things That Annoy Me

1.) None of my stories will move. Not even blink when I meet their beady little eyes. It's the happiness. It's sickening. I need rains of blood and toads. Waterfalls of them.

Everything Else

Christmas at grandparents was *very big fun*. There was endless food involved, and I told the story of the subway rats and the musical number. It went over *really well*. Those of you who participated are given virtual hugs by my family, who were absolutely thrilled to note that I am not the only person who will break into song for no particular reason, and asked to one day visit so there can be a re-inactment.

I'm just not sure how Mimi will take having rats around, though. Think stuffed woudl work inspirationallly-speaking?

I'm awarding myself cookies for being *so good* that I'm not nagging at svmadelyn for more Devil!Lex. None of us should. At all. Not by clicking on that LJ and leaving a random message of hopeful yearning, wishing for our fix.

This sounds like a perfectly reasonable SV Christmas. Yes. I think someone should write it. Yep.

It really is, isn't it? Totally reasonable.

And yet, is it written? No, it is not.

What's the difference between minor murder and like, murder in general?

Minor is like, people no one notices, like upper management and politicians.

Whether it's stalled-peristalsis in RL or Fic-creation, I rec par-tay. I have a beer or two and open up my fic while I'm a little toasted. I create a new working copy, and just have-at. I seem to trim BS nicely in that state.
hope it might help.

*bilnks* that is *such* a good idea. I need to get out more.

*grins and waves*

So glad to spread my own little version of the dissolute life!

I am not in any way encouraging you to write Buffy/Giles.

But if I did, I would be very cute about it, and smile adorably and tell you you're pretty.

I might even share some plot bunnies.

Or cookies! I could share cookies.


*hates you*

You are the worst influence ever. With the muppets, too!

See, there's no such thing as HAPPY Buffy/Giles. But you could write so much pretty fucked-up B/G. With exciting age issues and control issues and violence issues and amazingly pretty people and you have all the MP3s of Anthony Stewart Head doing Rocky Horror, right? Because I can send those.

*looks cute*

*with the Muppets, too*

*eyes you*

I think if you keep reminding people that this story in fact, exists, I might have to do another poll on WiPs, only this time, it'll be your lovely stories up for grabs. *beams sunnily* And then the winner gets a lot of *eyes wide and pleading* efforts from me, since you and I don't have a fic-for-for paper reward system in place like Pru and I do.

Fox thinks we should just make icons with like, poking stick things and "fill in the WiP ___ here", but I say that's too easy.

*beams sunnily and wanders off*

*sunny smile*

Please. I have no WiPs. At least, not any I haevn't updated recently.

*sunnier smile* Do you worst.

I don't have a book but here's a good web page on how to give yourself a manicure:


mahaliem wrote a Christmas ficlet recently that sounds like what you're looking for. It's here.

I can't offer you mutant reindeer, but it's Christmas Eve and Kal's about to pierce Lex with shish kabob skewers in my wip. It's up to part six, posted to lj.


Oh - but I have to warn you the story isn't that good. I haven't written fic in forever, and I think my rustiness shows. A lot.

Sweetie, are you *high*? Cause you could *not write bad fic*.

*pets you* Delusional episode, maybe?

I only started writing again last week. I've posted every two to three days on this thing. It's HARD to not write stuff that's already been done elsewhere. I'll think I'm saying something new, and then the next day I'm like, "Wait. That's plagiarized. I know I read that in another story." BUT, I'm enjoying it, so I'm keeping up with it. Feels good to write again. And I do get whole, long, original sections. I'm just trying to get back the self-discipline to write fics on a regular basis like I used to. :)



When teh hell did you start posting? AND WHY HAVEN'T I SEEN THIS BEFORE?

*bounces* pritning for work tomorrow. Oh man. I *love you*. You *rock*.

*huge happiness*
