TGIF  
Hmm. A trickle of unfriendings lately--and fewer comments than in previous weeks. I must be getting boring. With the move to LJ came the ability to track such things, and with the ability to track such things comes the inevitable tendency to think about them once in a while.

While I could try to be more entertaining than usual today, perversely I'm inclined to dwell in my lumpishness instead. Besides, anniesj has been secretly honing her skills at random, amusing babble, and I feel knocked down a peg.

Alligators! Spam! Japanese pears! Bill Murray! No, wait--tiny virgins, shaped like pears!

See. I've lost the touch. It's hopeless.

This is just a GIP, really. I have nothing to say and I scare myself with the zombielike soup that is my brain this week.

No, look at it this way...which is how I look at it as poster/reader.

I feel intimidated by posting repeatedly in someone's journal if they do not know me well, because I figure I annoy most people, nobody wants to read my shite and nobody likes me anyway, so I compromise and only leave annoying entries sometimes.

But, you are read, enjoyed, and cause a chuckle frequently (not only as provider but as subject--but, you know, in a good way).

I actually meant to mention that I was liking your frequent postings, because it meant I saw more of sex-faced Xander. Now, ordinarily, he just doesn't do it for me, but that icon is enthralling.

Silly thing. You're not annoying. Why do you think that? No, okay, you don't actually need to answer. But you shouldn't think that. So stop it! Stop NOW!

Yes, yum. And we will return to our regularly scheduled sex-faced Xander shortly, after this commerical break from femme-faced Spike.

Still reading, still laughing my ass off regularly, still waiting patiently for any yummy fic crumbs that you want to throw my way...but sometimes I'm just shy. And I feel I don't have anything that interesting to say. Like now, I guess. But I have been getting notions about gender-bending Spike and Xander. Like what if they both got magicked into girls, but they were still attracted to girls, and then they had really hot lesbian sex with each other? These are the thoughts that I get caught up in when I read your LJ. Mmmmm. Lesbians.

I don't think you could be boring if you tried.

Also, love the femSpike icons!

I am pleased and proud that I have made you think of Xander and Spike as lesbians. Lesbians yay!

Also, love the femSpike icons!

And this makes me happy. :)

unfriending
Ha, you want paranoia inducing? I posted a fairly large piece and the next thing I knew my friends list was shorter. 8-)

And I say the femme spike is worth listening in for anyway.

Re: unfriending
I will reply to everyone today, everyone, hellooo, hellooo, hellooo! :)

Yikes. Yes. I had one day a while ago where a lump of friends left, and another lump joined. I still can't figure out what was so special about that day.

And I say the femme spike is worth listening in for anyway.

Femme Spike, Femme Spike, everyone must love her.

*cough* I don't think this has been mentioned yet, *cough* but I am loving the femme Spike. Damn! That's just lickable.

And silly Rabbit, don't be hopeless. You're the reason I came to LJ!!! REALLY!!!

Well, okay then. The votes are in.

What a wonderful mental image. I want some of those. I could string them up and use them as a decorating motif, like Christmas lights, only not. :-)

Like little Willendorfs, perhaps....

Yup, that must be it. All that razor's edge sexuality, erudite commentary, and personal emotional resonance? Totally passe. ;)

*Cough* I've come to spoil the party and possibly get myself banned from your LJ...Mostly because I've been reading all your new stuff (including that really umm, interesting pony piece...btw, who the hell are Jim and Blair?) but have yet to see a new chapter of Season Noir. I've come to expect a monthly installment, but *looks at watch* it's been two months.
*taps foot*

Hey, and now you have one more comment. Everyone wins.

Oh, you know what? I thought it might be interesting if you had a Mila and Spike side by side icon so I could compare the two in one pic. She really is a remarkable look alike. Might we be seeing a Sweet Spot like fic from you soon

YOU'RE BANNED! BANNED FOR LIFE!

*cough*

No, that's okay. Really. You can stay. {G}

And Jim and Blair are characters from The Sentinel, a very bad TV show that nonetheless spawned a very large and slashy fandom that many great writers incomprehensibly flocked to. (I'm being facetious. The guys were adorable. And they lived together. In a loft. And touched each other. A lot.)

For what it's worth:

Er, no. {g}

I'm taking down the plain Spike icon from my set so I can add a different one, but I'll put up another version here, at least for a while:

I will never be able to hold a candle to your insanity. My insanity is a cheap knock-off of your insanity. Your insanity is Prada, and my insanity is sold by a man in a dirty overcoat on a street corner in Central Park. Your insanity is Coke, and my insanity is Bi-Lo cola. Your insanity is genuine punk, and my insanity is Avril Lavigne.

Also, can I fuck your icons? Because Femme!Spike makes me horny.

Your insanity is Rolexx, baby. That spells kwality!

Your insanity is Coke, and my insanity is Bi-Lo cola. Your insanity is genuine punk, and my insanity is Avril Lavigne.

My insanity is Subway!Spike, yours is souled! ("Nyah nyah!")

Also, can I fuck your icons? Because Femme!Spike makes me horny.

You may always have carnal relations with my icons. No need to ask. They are my bitch-harem, my stable, and they are yours to ride.

Oh, and Japanese pears? Bill Murray? Combine the two and I will be in heeeeeea-ven.

You're sweet. Thankyoukindly.

I'm too new here to have dozens of friends as some of you do (but I love that anyone's bothered to friend me at all; pathetically grateful really) so I don't think anyone's unfriended me yet (it takes time for me to get on people's nerves maybe? Hmm). But I did lose one person off my favourite author list over on fanfic.net so I know how you feel a little. That is, they deleted me from their list. Trouble is I'm not quite sure who I lost. The number went down by one but I couldn't spot who'd come to their senses/shown a lamentable lack of taste. Anyway, I put on my pouty face for a while and sulked.

Which made me feel better. Possibly Smarties were involved too but I did my children a _favour_ by stealing their loot bag candy. I was being a good mother and thinking of their teeth.

I haven't actually got you friended, though I am tempted. (For some reason, I've always been rather obsessed with having a friends list that matched. And right now it doesn't and it's making me tilt my head a bit and twitch. Eep.)

Anyway, I'm commenting mostly because, I wanted to say "thanks! I think." Over 50% of the hits that my most recent story got seemed to have come from your journal, which leads me to believe that you linked to it or something. In which case, thanks! lol (again, an obsession with numbers. And to think, I was horrid at math in my day.)

Tiny virgins shaped like pears - I really like that image. :)
