Bob and I offered to meet them for dinner at Jake's Famous Crawfish. Emily and Tim joined us.
It was fun! I did take a few photos. But I'm a bit tipsy right now and don't feel like uploading them. Later.
She will be at Vancon (and Dallas Con).
They say it's your
I hope you have a great
I'm glad it's your
Thank you for being such a generous and warm-hearted person.
You bring people together and that is something special.
Have a wonderful birthday.
(and you know the boys must be celebrating this auspicious day as well!)
I posted here about how I have to whittle almost 500 photos down to 20-25 before Tuesday. Well I've gotten down to 37. I'm walking away from these for a bit because I can't see straight at the moment.
You could help me break my own ties but letting me know which of these you like the best. Even 3-5 (or less or more) would help me.
I've numbered each photo below the photo. You can click on any of the photos to enlarge them.
Edit :: You can also view these on Flickr here. I think there's a way to favorite them - which would also work.

I'm really interested in reading it. If anyone has any clue what I'm referring to and can re-link me to it, I'd appreciate it.
Jensen was on the very bottom of this list.
There were some humorous comments made on that list about Jensen's position on that list. I'm trying to find the damn article to find those comments.
Anyone remember or have links to this article?
Hubby consoled over the phone and said he'd be home early. Daughter let me rant a bit (also over the phone). Son condescended enough to give me what I used to call a "timmy-hug" back when he was like ... um ... short. Now, of course my head barely comes to his shoulders....weird.
And reading about upcoming Comic Con also helped.
Just a few days ago I was actually watching a couple of SPN episodes with my daughter (yes, the one that rolls her eyes at my obsession--I think she was humoring me.) We watched Long Distance Call and Time is on My Side.
Remember in Long Distance Call when monster-o-week had Sam tied to the chair? (*pauses to enjoy the image*) um...okay I'm back. Anyway, in that scene MoW says how we're all so connected but never so isolated or far apart or something. My recent work experiences caused me to vent to Hubby tonight about how it's *never* worth it to devote so much psychic energy and/or your life into work, because in the end it's meaningless and, in a strange way, not real.
But then I thought about online friends. And fandom. At least fandom should fall in the "not real" category. But it doesn't feel not real. Despite the long distances and the fact that I can't just call someone and say, "let's go out and get drunk cuz I'm mad as hell." Online friends can feel as "real" as friends who live 2 miles away. Certainly more real than a lot of work-based friendships which are, again weirdly, in a more artificial environment than fandom/online is to me.
Am I making any sense?
Am I totally crazy? (never mind about that last question, I don't really want to know.)
And you know, I'll totally blame the vodka.
And no I haven't yet posted to Monster.com. But I am almost done with the resume, except for the description of my current job. I'm so f'ing mad at that job than I'm not sure I can do a professional job at describing it. And if I don't post the resume tonight, I'll be so cooled off in the morning I likely won't post it.
And Hubby just called, he's on the way home and offered to pick up fresca so I won't make myself sick on this red stuff.
Oh and thanks to everyone who pointed me in the direction of some new icons. But while I was purusing and saving, I didn't think to save an "angry" icon. Preferably one of Dean. Anyone got one (or two, or three)?
Over the weekend I upgraded to a paid account so I can have more icons. But now I'm too tired and bummed to even think about looking for them much less making them.
So anyone out there want to share their favorite icons with me? With information on who to credit as well? I would really love some new ones.
When I was a kid I always liked the idea of Pen Pals. Having people you wrote to all over the world. Learning a little about them and their culture. But there was always the problem of how to find pen pals and then there's the whole long process of writing a letter, mailing it and waiting days/weeks for a reply.
I just realized that's kinda what LJ is like. It's like having pen pals. But without having to go look for them. Without having to wait weeks for responses. And, the cherry on top is that you can target your LJ f-list to people with similar
So that sent me to flickr to search for Pen Pal. I actually found hits!
I love flickr. I'm an image whore. The right image can just make me vibrate. Through my pen pal search I found the artist colorfulexpressions. You really should go check her out here . I especially loved her LETTERING WORDS set found here.
So in the spirit of friendship and pen pals around the world here's a few of her images.
I love being flexible and taking things as they come.
And finally a good reminder.
