Oh, Mark Twain, how I love your quotes...♥


“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” – Mark Twain

So, go! Do something, anything, that you want. You can do it! And never listen to those who say you can't! :D :D


So I'm rolling out my promo blitz for [livejournal.com profile] scifibigbang   Are there any comm/fandoms that you know of that I can promote in? I'm trying to hit as many fandoms as I can and any help would be appreciated.   (I've already promoted in these comms.)

Author signups so far look pretty good. There are already over 40. Woot! 

Very interesting this year...we have a pretty wide assortment of stories so far, I think SGA is still the one with the most sign ups so far, lots of crossovers (even a Doctor Who/Sherlock one), a handful of video games (and no, not me...though I might sign up for another story...heh.), and a couple of animes.  Oh! And original stories. Several of those so far.

Anyway, any recs are appreciated and of course, I would love for y'all to sign-up. (And woot! To those of you who already have!)

Icons Ahoy!

Over at my seldomly-used graphics journal:  Sarcasm abounds in these parts... )
That's right the [livejournal.com profile] scifibigbang sign ups are going on for authors and artists. 

Authors

Artists

Woot! I'm kind of organized and totally excited about this year. And not just because this gives me a an excuse to write a 25k word story about Tangled.

I hope to see some of you guys sign up...I know what a talented bunch of writers (and artists) you are. So, get your muse going and sign up! :D :D

html help?

OK, so I'm trying to make a textbox of the author sign-ups for the scifbigbang and this is what happens:



Can anyone help me with telling me how to get rid of the annoying <br /> tag?

THIS is why I hate coding.

ETAL I fixed it! Woot! Disable Auto-Formatting FTW!!!

I know I have a couple of people on my f-list who are from Austrailia...(and even those of you who aren't from there could help).  I need a sentence (a riddle?) that would allude to Austrailia without saying "THE PLACE THAT YOU NEED TO GO IS AUSTRAILIA!"  I'm looking for some kind of interesting geographical tidbit thay is unique to the country without being too overt (read: not, "it's the biggest island in the world")

And yes, this is for a fic. :P :P


Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] sangate   (because, you know, I already don't have enough with my AU and my Big Bang fic, right?)

The challenge: First scene meme - give me a fandom, two characters, and a first line and I'll write the opening scene of a fic.

The fandoms: Alice in Wonderland, Fringe, Halo, Prince of Persia, Stargate: Atlantis, Star Trek: TNG, Tangled, Toy Story

The category: Well, most of you know I usually stick to gen/mild UST (Alice in Wonderland is usually the only exception, though Halo is always game too...get it? Game, you know, cause it's a video game, er, um, never mind. LOL)...and I'm always up for some humor. LOL

On a side note, I am still loving this mood theme ♥ ♥
So Bungie's been doing their weekly Fanart challenge and everytime they post the recap, I end up thinking one thing...."WHY CAN'T I DRAW?"  I've tried..., but dude, no.   To have to ability to actually draw something from the recesses of my mind? I want. So bad.

The highlight of the week...because this is the drawing that matches my image of John the most. And it's funny. LOL (I understand why the guy won the best of the week, but, dude, no...the face is not John.  Well, in my mind anyway. LOL)

Meme time!

Oh memes, what would I do without you?  Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] oparu 

Ask me fandom-related questions. They can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Questions can be as wacky as you want. Ask me about tv shows, books, characters, kinks, fanfic in general, fandom issues/meta, anything about any of my stories specifically. Whatever you've always wanted to know.

ETA: Yup, another mood theme. Food.  Dude. Food! My Food Network lovin' heart is dancing for joy right now!
Summary: Maybe she is as sick as that protective horse implied when he nudged me up the stairs with that impatient look of his. "You doing all right in there, Goldie?"
Rating: S for Squeaky Clean
Pairing: Flynn/Rapunzel
Spoilers: Er, you've seen the movie, right?
Timeline: About six months after the end of the movie.
Author's Notes: This fic was completely inspired by a request by [livejournal.com profile] grav_ity for some hurt/comfort fic recs.  For some reason, the plot bunnies in my head used that as inspiration for this fic.  I guess it's good practice for my Big Bang fic, right?

Da icons!

I might have lost all my HD caps and might be going through my external hard drive for the next week looking for missing files, but that doesn't mean I can't make some icons while I'm waiting for the files to move over!

An update

Jan. 21st, 2011 10:35 am
So, after Babe tried, it was determined that Lappy is dead! :(  He ordered a new recovery disc and is going to buy a new hard drive and see if he can repair it (we'd replace Dino with it if it works).  But, because I am spoiled he found a great deal at work, I gots me a new computer. 

I'm still mourning the loss of my other computer (we bonded over too many words of fic), but I have high hopes for this one (after I get use to Windows 7).  So today is going to spent doing the epically annoying task of transferring the saved files, downloading everything from iTunes to GIMP, finding a pretty desktop background, and trying to scramble around and remember all my saved passwords, etc.

(And let's not even start on how this computer doesn't have a word processing program so I have to use Open Office and none of my Works files are converting over.  Thank goodness that Dino has Works and I'll covert them to word docs.)

Let's just say that today is one of those days I wish I drank coffee. :P :P

ETA: I'm already on my way to geekifying my laptop. It's all about Halo, baby!

ETA2: And now I realize that I've lost all my fonts. Dude.

So, I was chatting with my buddy last night when my computer suddenly froze. I was like, "Huh?" Did a force reboot and was able to get back on.  Made some kind of sarcastic remark to her about my computer protesting ten windows being open at the same time and went on with my night.  Came back a little later to see if my professor ever emailed me back (he didn't) and the computer froze. Again. 

Annoyed, I put my computer to sleep mode and walked away after I restarted it...Fast forward to this morning when I was watching Skip Heitzig and then, right in the middle of the vid, my computer FREEZES. Now I'm panicked.  Lappy is sick!

So I try restarting.

Nothing.

*insert mass panic now*

All I was thinking was all of my iTunes music! My pictures! And (most importantly) all of my WIPs! So, I managed to put my computer into safe mode and transfer *most* of the files I wanted (the important ones I got first) when the computer froze again. Now, well, let's just say all I get is a blue screen of death. *points to icon* No safe mode, no system restore...

So, right now I'm feeling a little like Buzz Lightyear now.


So now I'm working on Dino.  The computer from like 2002, but it works so I'm grateful for that.  

Because everyone needs a little Strongbad laugh in their day.
Gotta have the blue hair... )

Epic. No...epic.

Do you now see why I really had to write that cracktastic fic?

On a side note, I really need a Mayhem icon. ROFL
So, things are moving along quite well in the planning stages of the [livejournal.com profile] scifibigbang thanks, in huge part, to my co-mod of awesomeness [livejournal.com profile] sanadafaye   It's scary to think that sign-ups are three weeks away.  *repeats mantra to be more organized this year*

I've decided to write the "Rapunzel and Flynn's Excellent Adventure" idea for the Big Bang though I'll probably be flailing in April saying "HOW CAN I WRITE 25K??!!?"  I'm hoping the DVD will be out by June because I want to watch it hundred more times need it for research.  (And yes, I'm still expecting to see many of you sign-up.)

My AU of epic size is still eating away at my life.  I've written over 17k in 11 days.  Dude

I've decided my EA Active Workouts video game is trying to kill me.  Too. Many. Lunges. LOL

On a side note, let's see how blonde Jessica is...Why have I been saying "meme" like "mehmeh" like, um, forever?  Really, meme is pronounced "Meem"? Then why didn't someone spell it like that? Come on, admit it...my blondness is amusing always at times.
So, it all started when [livejournal.com profile] sanadafaye showed me the new, incredible layout for [livejournal.com profile] scifibigbang and my brain went, "Dude! I wanna scrolling LJ page like that!!"

Then, [livejournal.com profile] sangate drops me the most awesome link to [livejournal.com profile] glaringcandle where there are epic wallpapers. Of Tangled.

The fangirl in me knew what I had to do.

A little messing around with cropping, coloring and coding and I've got a new layout. Woot!
The what icon do you associate with me? meme! Snagged with love from [livejournal.com profile] sgmajorshipper 

1. Do not look at the comments.
2. Take a look at my userpics
3. Post a comment with the icon of mine you associate with me. Leave commentary if desired.
4. Repost and profit.

Heh.

So I think Bitchin' Kitchen is slowly becoming my new TV crack.  Seriously, who knew so much sarcasm could exist on a cooking show? *giggle*

Dude.

Jan. 7th, 2011 08:52 pm
How is there only one story for Tangled on AO3?

Seriously.
