That's all for now!

Yeah, yeah. I am soooo way bad about greeting new LJ friends! ROFL. I never, ever remember...
But shout out to newbie Kitura kituralb. I'm not sure where/how you found me, but welcome to my crazy world. LOL.
And if for some reason I never welcomed one of you guys here in the past, I'll just say a big welcome to everybody right now. Okay?
I really LOVE all my friends!

Okay, so it's already January 2 and I missed the official day. Deal.
Did anybody watch "World Idol"? What did you guys think of the results?
The holidays were busy, busy, fun, fun, busy here! LOL. (Guess I should work on sharing a list of some of my fave gifts...)
I totally LOVE this new Yahoo list that Kevin kevinr created for everybody who is involved at the BOY BAND FIC webby! It's very, very cool. He just sent out this long post there that told us some of the main stuff that site visitors are interested in! (I guess it never occurred to me that Kev would have info about that that the rest of us don't get...)
It was pretty interesting to see a list of people that readers want fic about, for example. Or wallpapers people would like to have there! And topics that interest visitors. I guess that's kind of helpful to know when we're planning future projects...
I just love being part of that site. It's like a huge family or something. And Kev has it amazingly well organized. Even though I've had a paid site of my own for ages now (months and months, really), I don't even bother with it. LOL. (I use it to upload junk I'm sharing here at LJ.)
Well, I'm gonna do a list of Resolutions soon. (Right.) Anyway, I'll try to!
Hope all my friends had a terrific Holiday Season!
Belated Merry Christmas!
And again, Happy New Year!
I'm having waaaay too much fun in life. Truly. LOL.
Yeah, I'm working long, hard hours at work. But I'm glad to have the job and I feel as if I make a difference. That's a pretty good feeling. Some days it's just meetings and whatev and there's nothing to show for it. But even those days feel good lately. I just feel happy with where I am in life right now.
And I'm getting along better recently with the sibs. It's like for a long time my bro Andee and I had issues. But now we're on the same page a lot of the time. He's into a lot of different things now, but he's also able to admit he likes Nsync and the Backstreet Boys--and he went for a long time trying to deny he'd ever liked 'em. LOL. (I think that's a normal stage, so no biggie.)
The extra money I've been earning has been partly going for our help to our family friends. And I've partly been saving some for Christmas presents for the family--which they don't really know about. (It's interesting how when you're earning $$$ your parents don't really have a clue how much money you have. I mean, my Mom and Dad have been really grateful for whatever money I give them toward the house and for sending to our Florida friends. But they seem to think I'm not keeping enough for my own needs. ROFL. Right! I've got some good money put aside for Christmas...)
Yeah, I could soooo use a new winter coat, though. Mine has taken a beating and it's coooold here! (Florida, I wish I was back there! LOL.) But I'll live. The coat looks a little... beat up, so I try not to wear it when I'm going to be around people who'd take note. Appearance is a biggie for work a lot of the time. It's like me in suits all the freaking time. LOL. I used to hate wearing 'em. But what ya gonna do?
When I'm not working I've been having good times with the family and with friends. Yeah, we did get "Pirates of the Carribbean" on DVD (don't think I've mentioned it before), so it's fun to watch it with the fam. (And, yeah, I did finally go with several sibs to see it at the show, which I thought I'd never I'd get to do...)
One of our church groups went caroling at several nursing homes, so I did that. It was really pretty cool! They'd have cookies and punch and junk for us and we'd sing and then mingle. Lots of those people just seem so lonely. They'd talk and hug and I felt really good for being there.
It's interesting to me how good it makes me feel to do things like that. We're going to do the 'soup kitchen' thingy again this Christmas, though I don't know which day Mom's set that up for yet. It's great to help feed the homeless, cuz that's a big issue for me, personally. It seems so wrong for people in this country to have no place to live...
I'm loving my online times, too. Making wallpapers and junk. Lately I haven't made any icons (shocker!!!), but I'm sure I'll get back to it.
I did quit my blend communities, cuz I was getting much out of 'em anymore. I decided I'd rather use those skills to make wallpapers for Kev's webby and banners for fics. (I sucked there, anyway. I never even got more than a 'participation' award, ever. So whatev. LOL.)
I soooo loved making a fic banner for Ry's Fic (which soooo rocks). It's got it all--Nick Carter (hurray!), terrific character portrayals, hot sex and humor. (And the sex--with a dildo--is accurate for a change. LOL. I suppose being bi that Ry ryan_beaches would know his stuff!) My banner is about as outrageous as the fic, I guess, but it was soooo fun to make. LMAO.
Kev's webby has just got soooo many awesome changes. Very cooool. He treats his hosted authors (of which I'm very lucky to be one) so well, too. Loads of sites just host the work, period. You send 'em your fic (or they gack it from some post somewhere) and you feel glad your name is on it. ROFL.
But Kev treats us far more special than that. We're kinda like mini-celebs, or something. And I get waaaay awesome feedback as a result of being there. It's pretty cool.
Anyway, it's late and there's work tomorrow, so... (Good thing I had a nap earlier! LOL.)
Happy holidays, guys!
(Yeah, yeah, I'll try and get those untagged piccies posted here tomorrow for those interested! It's very cool having the Boys out there, again!)
Yikes! More on Aaron's split with Mom Jane...
With many thanks to friend Marilyn mistressmarilyn for sending me this blurb in the middle of her busy day full of interviewing people...
