According to this morning's special tribute "celebration" on Meet The Press, Tim Russert had that phrase hanging on the wall of his office.

More on that and other ramblingsCollapse )

*pushes massive rock aside and squints at the gorgeous setting sun...*

Damn, it's been awhile since I engaged in this thing called updating, has it not? A long, long, long while. Shame, shame, shame on me. There were/are many validyetboring reasons for that. But they are for another day. Today is a special day, alive and beautiful in the boring-free, whine-free zone.

I wanted to edge out from under this rock for a moment and wish everyone a Happy JCandJustin Day!! 'Tis 3/18, their sacred and exclusive 24 hours of celebration! Their love is not to be forgotten, yaknow, not even by AWOL slackers such as yours truly! And although inspiration and motivation decided to be bitches and weren't on my side and refused to show me any kindness this year so that I could produce a contribution of my own (boofuckinghissgrr), I am totally enjoying all the festivities going on over at juc_day. I'm hoping some of it will rub off on me and hyperboost my deadass creative brain cogs for some near-future "juicy" goodness.

Many thanks to Beth for the nod she gave me in her fabulous rec list! I much appreciate being included in such awesome company! You're a dear, my dear!

Anyway. I'm still around here in these parts, trying to lurk and stay in touch with the world of this fandom as well as a couple of others. I miss being active! Doh! But really. Just wanted to say a big ol' HI so that I'm not forgotten either. : )

Enjoy the Day 'O JuC Luv, you guys! ♥

Hello and Happy Somewhere-Between-May-Day-and-Cinco-de-Mayo!

Hope the week is going well for folks out there so far. Mine has been tolerable, even good. I survived an early dinner (before work) with coworkers at IHOP yesterday -- and was promptly reminded of the Great Big Why I haven't been in an IHOP in about 20 years. Ugh. Just SO Very Not worth my $7.59. But at least it was filling. Do you think they'd be happy with that review? It's the best I can muster without going totally negative and boring you to tears. Yeah. I picked On The Border when it was my turn to choose the restaurant. And no one had a stomach ache afterward either.

Anyway. Enough of that. I really popped in to let those who are still interested know that I kept my promise and updated "A Tale Of Two Romances" today. Finally. Whew. What a relief off my mind. And I swear I won't wait so damn long to get more of it out next time. I need to wrap that thing up, actually. (And yes, I've been saying that for years too.)

If you'd like to read the five new chapters, they can be found in my LJ fiction community (and on my web site as of, say, tomorrow -- didn't quite have time to put them up there just yet). Reminder: it's Basez and Justin/OFC, if you weren't aware of the pairings.


Part 104

Part 105

Part 106

Part 107

Part 108

Edit on 5/4 (Happy Birthday, Lance!!!): If you prefer, you can now read it on the Web site. :)

Ah, not a typical sentiment you're likely to see -- as an LJ subject header or anything else, for that matter. Right?

Well, I do. It keeps me terribly busy, and there's a LOT of stress and "you're the company's bottom-line of defense against errors" responsibility, but I can honestly say I enjoy going to it and spending time doing it. And I've never been able to say that about a job before in my long history of jobs. It's a little several-hours-long adrenaline rush that I've come to need every week day. I actually feel lost if I miss my fix. Crazy, I know. But I thought I'd share that while it's still true. Who knows how long it'll be before I'm cussing all to hell everything and everyone associated with the place. lol

Anyway, I'm just posting for the sake of peeking in and updating. Not much really to say. Everything is basically cool with me and mine. No crises or tragedies or major lottery wins. Ha. I'm good. Off-line a lot more than I used to be, and that's a positive, refreshing thing. Trust me. Ha.

I did some jabbering today in my fiction community (mb__fiction) about a big update to an old Basez series I'm planning to do in the next few days. If you're a reader of (or even vaguely remember) "A Tale Of Two Romances" that I've been writing for centuries now, you can check out what I thought you needed to know before I post the new chapters. And that is here.

Time now to get ready for work. :)

Have a great weekend, everyone! :)

Sorry for the suspense, folks. Wasn't my idea nor my doings at all. LJ forced it on me. Beeatch.

Anyway, here's the rest of it. Again, cross-posted in juc_day where you should go next and join in the joyous celebration of JuC-ness. :)

Happy JuC Day, everyone! It's that cherished holiday once again! And I have a long one to contribute/share today.

It started out as a short, sweet, fluffy thing......and then grew to be a longlonglong lots-of-everything-included-in-here thing. Still plenty of sweet-n-fluffy, though. I didn't lose sight of that. So I hope you like it. :)

For tons more JuC goodness, please take yourselves over to juc_day where this is being cross-posted. And indulge!

Big hugs and kisses to Bianca westchester_777 for her fast and expert beta turnaround. She's as important to me as my muse. Thank you, babes.

I warned you now. Longlonglong with some sweetandfluffy added in. Rated: TVMA.

ETA: I have to post it in two parts because LJ is being a shitty bitchface today and won't accept the full monty all in one swallow. Some LJ's kids, I swear. Argh.

According to news, paid accounts now have 30 spots for iconage rather than 15! Woo hoo! Justin time for JuC Day!

I was glad to see this post and just had to share quickly. Must get back now to hurriedly whipping my story contribution into good enough shape to send to my wonderful beta guru. Since she is half-of-the-planet or more away from me, JuC Day comes many hours earlier for her than it does for me. So I must give her a decent amount of time to go through this monster. And the days of anticipation are ticking by waaaay too quickly. Eek!

Many warm thankyous to the kind, anonymous soul who gifted me with the sweet virtual rose last night. The sentiment/message you sent along with it was very thoughtful and generous and made me smile. Thanks a plenty. *hugs* :)

Oh, my. I should update this baby. Really. I should.

Since I haven't done so yet this year. (What? Seriously?) So how about I begin by trying some bullets? Another first for me. In any year. Yeah, I know. A real practiced LJer. Go, me. lol

  • First off, I hope erryone is having a splendid V-Day. Mine is going beautifully so far. Many thanks to 1107red for the pretty rose that now adorns my user info page! Thank you, sweetie! That is truly kind. :)

  • I've been a bit sickly of late. Chest cold, aches, sinus yuckiness, congestion in every living cell of my body. It comes and goes. And it's really fucking with my newly implemented diet-and-exercise program I was will be doing so great on again soon. Damnit.

  • The job is going like jobs go. At the same never-a-dull-moment, whirlwind-like pace every day. But I was warned. And it's certainly living up to the promises. Hey. I'm never bored. There's always that, right? Ha.

  • Surprisingly, I'm still getting the lovely trickle-in feedback for Tennessee Lullaby which makes me squeeee. And I've honestly started on the next chapter(s) of ATOTR too. Seriously. After well over a year. Must get busting on that JuC Day idea spinning around up in there too. Soon. It's quickly approaching. *sigh*

  • Not much else new. JC's looking great in all of his latest public outings. Yeah, I know. That's not new. And Justin. Oh, my sweet boy, Justin. I refrained from clicking on his b'day pics because of the, well, Hag Factor. You know. Ugh. But I saw most of the Sundance ones and the golfing ones and was mighty proud of him. Lance? Cracks. Me. Up. Enough said.

  • I've been taking it easy (hello, sick) and doing some reading lately. Nicholas Sparks' two recent ones, namely, True Believer and At First Sight. The ever-amusing Ms. B (westchester_77) sent me the "Brokeback Mountain" short story, and I mustmustmust see the flick now. *sobs* Yes, babes. I owe you an e-mail too. 'Tis forthcoming. :)

Guess that's it for now. And that's plenty, eh? Enjoy the day, folks. Toodles. :)

The final Friday of 2005, and I have lots to do to get ready for the New Year weekend. So I'll make this brief. Or I'll give it my best shot. Haha

I have lotsandlotsandlots of the series prepared to post today. Which I will soon do. There is, however, one small section/scene that is not finished yet (started but not complete), but since it doesn't involve JC and Justin nor does it influence the plot in any way whatsoever, I am going to omit it for now and give you everything else. After I've finished it (later this weekend), I will gladly post it and let you know where in this series of chapters it was/is to go.

Again, it won't hurt anything at all at this point for it to be temporarily missing. I simply didn't want to hold the rest of this stuff up another day or two just because that part wasn't ready to go. 'Kay?

Anyway. Here you go with the lotsandlotsandlots. It may help to go back and read Chapters 83 and 84 again (or at least skim over them) to get your bearings on what's been going down. FYI: this chapter begins when we're still at the Bassenbaum wedding reception. ;)

As always, thank you so much for reading. I do honestly appreciate it. :)

Happy & Safe New Year to everyone!

This Dance We Do
Chapter 85 et al
