Hello flist, from Day 3 of SNOW and SCHOOL CLOSURES. My base recorded the coldest temperature in England and the roads are like...meh.

There's only so many snowmen I can make (I think I've reached my limit), and we're now once again back to the distractions that are reading books, the Peppa Pig computer game, Lego, Play-Do and the DVD library.

So, time for a quick update and a few reasons to smile:

* HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] brissygirl! I hope you have a wonderful day! (Or rather, had one, as I think it's almost tomorrow where you are:)

* I am pleased to announce that the 2010 HP UK MEET-UP is taking place 2-4 July in Edinburgh. If you'd like to attend, please join us at [livejournal.com profile] hp_uk_meetup.

* [livejournal.com profile] kilter is pleased to announce that the first of the spring shoe collections are now on offer in the Pacific Northwest. and will be supplying all of HSU with new footwear this season.

* Attention people of York: [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12 and [livejournal.com profile] softly_sweetly are together for the weekend within your city walls. Now would be a good time for that French holiday you were all planning for later in the spring.

* OMGSQUEE! My somewhat fanciful and very AU story In the Beginning has been nominated at the [livejournal.com profile] forbiddenawards!!! Thank you all so much for the lovely response this piece has received! If you haven't read it and you like porny bed-time stories, please give it a try. I'm so chuffed and incredibly excited to be nominated! I have no idea how it will fare, but it's enough to have got to this amazing place! THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Happy Birthday, Noe!

I'm so sorry I didn't have the time to write you some wonderfully cracky Next Gen fic and I'm sorry I can't be there to give you a huge HSU birthday hug (and abuse)! But, as most of my flist already knows, I asked someone much more talented than I to make you a gift as beautiful, creative, gorgeous, and splendid as you are.

Thank you, Noe, for all of your support, humour, chat, and general knowledge/silliness. HP and HSU are lucky to have you! And I am all the better for knowing you. Now, tell that Doctor and Snake of yours to get the party started!!! *sets Tardis light to "disco mode"*

Huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pink_mint for taking Noe's vision and making it so real.

Way-hey! At last I’ve gotten enough time to post after a crazy busy week with Doug on nights and piles of work to get through at the office after a week away.

First and foremost, I’m now going to be off the beta circuit until 20 June. I hate to do this, cause I love it, but with work heating up (which means less free time to play), two birthday ficlets and [livejournal.com profile] hp_sas on the horizon, I need the time. I’ll be back in the beta business after the 20th, so feel free to start sending in stuff again after that!

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] hp_sas , I’ve got 6K written and it’s about just over halfway done. Finished the beta work yesterday, so it’s full steam ahead (with just the slight detour for [livejournal.com profile] enchanted_jae’s and [livejournal.com profile] moonlitdark’s birthday presents)!

Next, as many of you know, I'm commissioning some art (all one design- five different artists) as five wonderful and uniquely different BIRTHDAY PRESENTS FOR MYSELF! Since Doug's being deployed soon, I thought to treat myself to a little bit of quality fan art. And two of them have come through and boy are they winners! For those of you who like this kind of thing (okay, that's all of y'all) I give you What Snitch? by the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] oldenuf2nb and her wonderful work with graphite and Quidditch Kiss by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] leochi whose unique style with watercolours always makes me smile. There's more to come and I can't wait. Thank you ladies for the wonderful presents! They're just what I wanted and I'm so, so appreciative.

Now, onto less civilised matters- GeneralsGrrls or [livejournal.com profile] generalsgrrls as it will soon be known. Happy Anniversary to HSU! I can't believe we've been together for 10 glorious years! For those of you who don't know us, we're all survivors of JediHunks (with the icon to prove it). We met and formed GeneralsGrrls in 1999 and have been going strong ever since. We've met in RL with HoCons in Las Vegas, Seattle (in which I required participation at my wedding- surprised nothing burned down) and St Louis. I love you all and I'm so glad we're still as nuts as ever. And just to prove it for those who are brave enough to read the latest story synopsis...

The Dean incurs the wrath of her DE PA's wifey )

Voted yesterday. The kids helped put the ballot papers into the boxes for me. In the southern Oxfordshire district in which I live our two main cadidates were Crabbe (Conservative) and Wood (Labour). I shit you not.

In other news: I’m officially OUT OF DEBT! Credit card paid off (and yes, I only use the one card), car paid off (and still going like a motherf*cker), student loan paid off, everything!! And since we’ve decided to live on the base for awhile instead of buying a house this year, we can start replacing some of the furniture- which is a good thing- seeing as most of it came from the set of Shoebox Zoo. Okay, it’s kinda nice that Sean Connery’s son and my husband are the only two people I’ve lain in that bed with, but the stuff is getting OLD. (I bought most of it at the art department’s auction after we wrapped).

And finally, as I was talking about birthdays HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my favourite snake. You may not be around in RL (maybe you are and we’re all going to feel pretty damned embarrassed when you stumble upon the Internet- ask someone to show you how to use a com-pu-ter), but you are a great character and my life would certainly be less smut-filled without you. And seeing as my husband is also turning 29 this year, I in no way feel that there’s anything wrong with playing in your sandbox.

I think that's enough for now.

Anyone else on my flist who's as much of a McCoy fan as me needs to go to The McCoy-A-Thon now!!! I can't believe how fast stuff is going up there. I posted a prompt this afternoon and about two minutes later there was ficage from [livejournal.com profile] eviinsanemonkey! Quality ficage!

Also, I'd like to announce that wonderful [livejournal.com profile] noeon's new com is open for business. If you fancy two scoops of ginger and one scoop of blond, then find a home at [livejournal.com profile] sceasleycest. There's art, too...

Sistahs in H/D, make sure you fly on over to a Fan Poll hosted by the imcomperable [livejournal.com profile] lotus_lizzy.

Finally, [livejournal.com profile] hp_rarities began posting today, and seeing as yours truly played a very minor role in it, I'm ORDERING you to check it out!

I'd also like to grudgingly take this opportunity to thank [livejournal.com profile] kilter for the early birthday pressies of iTunes voucher and the chocolate-covered cherries (my favourite sweeties). Am going to see the Oxford Kings play baseball this weekend (weather permitting) and will stuff said cherries down my gob during that. Will take a flask of Crystal Lite iced tea (closest thing I've got to the real thing over here) and guzzle that too.

Finally, [livejournal.com profile] delphi- I don't pretend to know how the computer system at HSU works but I really don't give a rat's ass if your bloody DE finds out what I wrote in that chat-room or not. Will K his A if he even tries to use the other combination of those letters on me. Pppttffft!

Finally got myself sorted into HiH and you'll never guess where I've ended up! No, c'mon- have a guess. Everyone there has been SO friendly! Will eventually try out for the team, as well (natch).

Am getting sigtags now (even found a hybrid one, seeing as evidently I'm an amalgam- didn't I tell you I looked good in Christmas colours?) Anyone anywhere needing art make sure to get over to [livejournal.com profile] dripping_cherry's store ASAP! Also, make sure you go read her wonderful H/D World Cup entry for Team EWE The Familiar Familiar and leave her some love. If it doesn't make you smile, you'll never be able to claim to be a lover of ornithology.

I also have a couple of other shouts I have to mention: [livejournal.com profile] leochi is an awesome friend and artist, who's just made my kids some pics of our favourite snake since they just assume you can't have one boy without the other. Thanks again for the lovely work!

Remember way back when I posted that sweet little fic and I promised you art? Well, here it is- courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] noeon and her skilled fingers. You da bomb!

Lovely Bum )

My ST coms have GONE. TO. TOWN. Am reading anything with my main man in I can get my greedy little hands on and my god, Jim, people have also been posting some rockin' art and I now have some lovely new McCoy wallpaper.

Can't Save Them All )

And finally, for [livejournal.com profile] kilter: Just give that damn thing the chocolates and get it back to the Clinic- people could be stealing stuff as we speak! Me? I'm in the cabinet. Busy.

Oh look, I managed to mention both my bestest kinks...

I LOVE icons. I'm always looking for more and am SOO bloody grateful to people who make them. I've done a few, but I'm rubbish at them. So, here's a way to see some good ones:)

Rules
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.
[livejournal.com profile] nuclearsugars chose six of mine.

Bollocks!

I missed Purim! Again!

And I was in London on Tuesday! I could have gone up to Golders Green for sweeties.

Damn.

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] kilter and [livejournal.com profile] noeon are colluding collaborating for the next HSU fic. Thought I'd get a jump on them by listening to the appropriate music.

Hold up, we just had a 70s party courtesy of the Old Folks. What's this one in aid of? And where does one get a drink around here? And [livejournal.com profile] dorotea, why is your EA in the Clinic? What's wrong with him?

Okay, don't answer that.

Oooh! And I LOVE my prompt for [livejournal.com profile] hp_sas!!!

YEEEESSS!! My friend Linda has her flat to herself and now has a spare room! That means when I take the sprogs up to Granny & Grandad's this Easter I can GO OUT and stay at hers! Two nights in a row! Dinner! Dancing! The pub! More dinner! YES! I can't believe how much fun this is going to be! Linda lives down near where our flat used to be and it's not too far to stagger home to.

Doug is thoughtfully staying here in Oxon cause he doesn't want to deal with his parents- fair enough. I like them okay, but I haven't been out with the girls or out dancing in frakking ages!

*shuffles feet like mad woman and gets ready to troll down George St*

In other news- I LOVE the prompt I have for the [livejournal.com profile] sas_fest! I hope I can live up to her requests and DAMN, I'm going to have a great time working on it.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] kilter is writing HSU! That's always a good thing, unless it means I have more opportunities to associate good songs with hysterical circumstances that I'll just embarrass myself later over whenever I hear them. (I'm sure there's a better way of saying that.)

And [livejournal.com profile] noeon is still writing her brilliant cross-gen fic which is shortly to be heating up:)))) I loved the last installment that I beta-ed this morning when I should have been updating my c. diff records.

Okay, enough nonsense- back to re-reading (for the eleventy-billionth time) [livejournal.com profile] scrtkpr's gorgeous Arctic Fox.
