Dear [ profile] femslash12 Author

I have never written a "Dear Author" letter before, but since I have strayed from LJ this past year, I thought it might be beneficial.

I'd like to start by thanking you for participating in this year's fic-a-thon. It's my first one back after a few years off and I am looking forward to all the wonderful femslash that will result.

About me- I am a simple gal with simple tastes. I love all types of stories (except graphic BDSM)with a preference for "first time" stories, "missing scene" stories, stories that offer a different perspective on a canon scene. But mostly, I just love reading fic. And I love Regina Mills, HG Wells, Emily Prentiss, and good old Erica Hahn.

So do what you will, dear author. Write your heart.

The Regina Show, Writing, Another cat, and any other bullshit I can think of ...

Okay everyone. Regina Fucking Mills is my new Mrs CB2. Sorry Alex Cabot! Sorry Helen Stewart! But this bitch has MAGIC!!!!! I love this show so much I can't stand it. Except for Mulan and Sleeping Annoying. I could do without either of them.

I signed up for Femslash 12 fan-fic-a-thon. Got my assignment yesterday. I am gonna write for a pairing I have never written for before. But I have an idea...and 7 weeks. I'd like to get it done before Nano starts, because I would really love to try that this year.

We have a stray tomcat that has been hanging around the castle since June. He really wants in the house, and today he got past me and took off for the basement. I put him back outside, but I realized that we need him as much as he needs us. So we are giving in and taking him to the vet. If he checks out, he gets to live with us and our cat harem. His name is Frankie and he looks like Puss in Boots from Shrek, except he has icy green eyes. He has a little friend, Fidget, who shows up just to be fed. We are gonna try to get her adopted by someone who is not us.

I can't think of any other bullshit, but I'll be back again. You have been warned!

New member of Casa Cabenson for Caturday

Last Friday, Mrs CB and I stopped in our local pet store to get a new collar for Artie and some kitty food. We visit this pet store regularly and I always make a point to visit the adoption center to see who has been adopted and who is new. Mrs CB and I were loving away on the kitties when we cam to a cage with 3 small black and white tuxedo kittens. One came up to the bars of the cage and just LOVED all over our hands. We could not resist.

Once upon a time...

Wow have I been neglecting this place. I need to do better, and I promise you dear flist, I will try. And by "try" I mean I will probably fail...

But before you all forget me, I must tell you all that I am in love! And yes, Mrs CB is completely, eye-rollingly, aware. Cause my new love? Mayor Regina Mills from ABC's "Once Upon A Time." She has effectively replaced Alex Cabot as Mrs. CB 2 so you know this shit is for realz! Evil, manipulative,incredibly flawed, but still vulnerable and sympathetic. And HAWT!!!! I so love this show! I haven't been actively interested in a fandom since the days of Otalia.

Of course, I am once again dealing with a spinal issue. And when CB's back breaks down, a new fandom interest is never far behind. So while I toil away in PT trying to fire muscles that have been dormant for 7 years, I think about the lovely, evil, Mayor Regina Mills. Think about stories I want to watch and songs I want to vid. Think about spending hours on Tumblr trolling for pics and fic.

And when I get the random bachelor weekend, I re-watch the episodes looking for anything that I might have missed on the first five viewings. Did I mention that I love this show? The entire ensemble is wonderful and I love the little twists we see to the fairy tales we grew up with. Not a huge fan of Jennifer Morrison in this role-she started out bad-ass but then went wimpy. Bad-ass returned the last few eps, but...let's just hope that she (both the actress and the character) grow stronger next season, cause the fireworks when Emma and Regina are together? SMOKING!!! Reminds me of early Helen/Nikki.

So tell me your thoughts on this show/characters/pairings/hopes for season 2. I would love to discuss this with a more intelligent audience, and yes dear flist, I am accusing you of being intelligent :)

Drabble prompts please

Anyone else watching "Once Upon a Time" and enjoying the Swan Queen ship?

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

[ profile] eclecticfan gave me the following:

1. Shag, Marry, Dump: Helen, Alex, Maura
Shag Helen(cause those boobs!!!!), Marry Alex (as long as she keeps her job in NYC), and dump Maura (she seems to have a thing for that Jane friend of hers.)

2. Dream Vacation? where, when, why?
Elders World Tour. Seriously. Watch the Elders eat and drink their way around the world!!

3. You have one wish. It must be used to remove a member of Congress (nothing mortal, they just leave) - who do you choose?
The Weeping John Boehner. In fact, I wanna kick him out of Ohio!

4. All time favorite date?
Whatever date marks the first day of Autumn. Favorite season evah!!

5. Mayan Calendar - how does the world end this December?
I don't know, but I already asked for the day off.

6. Newest obsession?
Once Upon a Time and Archer

7. When are you coming to visit?
Oh god, soon we hope! I miss you and all of us together!! I want to bring Mrs CB this time and stay in the same place. Think I need to make a quick trip to NYC first.

Bye Fat Bastard!

We lost Mr. Greyson Lee last night. Really hard to let him go, but we know that continuing these invasive treatments were more for our benefit than his, He died peacefully in my arms, Mrs CB holding his tiny white paws. Thanks for being our first boy, Greyson! We will miss you!!

(no subject)

What a crazy month it has been since i last posted. On Oct 20th, Mrs CB had a gum graft done-very painful, and gross, procedure. The next day, we rushed our oldest, Greyson to the emergency vet due to breathing issues. That was an interesting trip. Mrs CB had JUST taken a vicodin and was a bit loopy, I had taken my blood sugar meds but stopped my lunch as soon as I noticed what was happening to the cat, and well, the stress....ugh!

We had noticed that our Fat Bastard had lost a significant amount of weight over the past year, and we attributed it to the diet food we put them on in January. When we got him to the kitty ER, his lungs were filled with fluid. He had undiagnosed hyperthyroidism that was the cause for the weight loss and those three words we hate to hear: congestive heart failure. They tapped his lungs and removed a ton of fluid, kept him on O2 overnight and he was good enough to go home the next day.

For the past month we have been monitoring his breathing and treating the CHF with great success. His latest films show no fluid in lungs, but still some remnant in the surrounding pleura. As we were preparing to start him on his thyroid meds, we discovered that he has Primary Renal Disease. This is not good. We are now using a cautious, conservative approach to treating all three conditions. Thankfully, the anti-nausea and appetite stimulants have kicked in and he is eating and drinking like a fiend.We are hoping this, and the thyroid meds will help him gain some weight. He was previously 19.5 lbs and is now 11.4. Most of that weight loss has occurred since July.

He is resting quietly today after spending yesterday at the animal hospital for tests. We know that we have a long road ahead, with many appointments, and many days struggling to give him his meds. I just hope we can have him for a little longer before we have to say goodbye.

Food and fic and is my life

I have been on a cooking kick lately. Especially with root veggies like carrots, turnips, taters and beets. Those last two I should not be eating but OMG! have you had them roasted? Delicious! Went so well with the rump roast I slow cooked for most of the day. Glad I had to get up for work and started that sucker early, cause it fell the fuck apart, it was that tender.

And since I worked this weekend, I get a 4-day next weekend (Thurs-Sun). Taking Mrs CB to have oral surgery on Thurs (nasty!) and I have a fat girl diabetic check up on Friday. Doing fairly well with that. Down 15 pounds in 3 months with ,uhm, no exercise to speak of other than working the remote. Now that the weather is cooler, I can start walking again in the evenings. Hahahahaha. I'll walk to the bathroom or kitchen and call myself a long-distance runner. Breathing is hard, yo!

So, this weekend, I am gonna catch up on some LJ reading. I have yet to tackle the SCC Virtual Season or the Otalia VS, so I am putting those on the list. Anything else I should read? Any good WH13 fics? Alex/Olivia? Preferably where Alex tells Olivia to get the Stabler-sized burr out of her ass? Any CM JJ/Prentiss post WIP fics. I need one with Cheetobreath scrabble people! I also have a serious case of the Scully's today. Make it happen! Haha, love that movie.

Besides reading I need to work on a couple vids. Myka/HG and Alex/Olivia are up first. Then if I can get the media, I want to do another JJ/Prentiss one. I cannot promise to NOT do a Prentiss/Staruss one...

Finally, props to my Buckeyes for getting their heads out of their asses and playing a simple game plan against Illinois. Remember that in 5-6 weeks when we play the team that shall not be named (but rhymes with bitchigan.)
