05:33 pm - Amazons Unite!

I usually have no trouble with my Amazon orders arriving intact but one was 'delivered' late last night, as in just the ripped open envelope was thrown on my bottom stairs -- WITH NO EXPENSIVE CHOCOLATE CHRISTMAS GIFT COOKIES INSIDE.

Like Sherlock Holmes, I could see where the thief tore open a small corner, could hear their gasp of "PROFIT!", as they took out their envelope breaching weapon of choice before criminally absconding the cookies within.

The Sproglet discovered the crime scene while bringing out the trash, then handed the empty yellow envelope to me with a confused look and it wasn't long before the entire family dissolved into a fit of righteous outrage.

I mean, having the balls to see if my property was actually good enough for you to steal before you took it? Seriously?

And then STEALING MY CHOCOLATE COOKIES? Which, to be totally honest, I wasn't going to give to anyone because I was drunk!Amazoning the night before and thought I wanted some awesome cookies to eat and these looked pretty good, but still.

Amazon very quickly refunded me. (Protip, if you want to get a human being on the Amazon phone system in two seconds, yell "stolen package!" into the recording. It's the magic words.) A nice lady in India also gave me some sympathy which was above and beyond the call of duty as I did rant profusely about the situation, but all she could do was chargeback the credit card. So now I have my money and no cookies.

It's probably better this way.

Except for when that jackass comes back. Because I'm using that money for a Ring security system which I bought tonight.

Try that again, dumb cookie-stealing cockbag.

Janet Jackson is being installed in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame this year.

Janket Jackson should be in every Hall of Fame ever for creating "Rhythm Nation 1814", period. This is a hill I will die on and can hear no arguments to the contrary. Janet rocks quite hard enough, thank you.

Don't make me slap a punk with Sister Rosetta Tharpe's guitar please.

~*~

Not sure that I mentioned my old ginger cat passed on a year ago and I foster-failed with two kittens I was fostering. They are nowhere near as mellow as the senior cats I've always adopted

I wanted to keep their mother but the kid on the house saw a pair of kittens and that was the end of that. They are a real pair of idiots, these two brothers and today when I hung a cat toy 'mistletoe' for them to play with, they took turns biting each other underneath it.

Biting each other hard. Until there was rolling and howling and hissing and they got a time out.

They are honestly worse than any child I've raised/helped raise. I'm not looking forward to the tree this year, that's all I can say.

07:06 pm - Holiday Sale to Help With Medical Bills

Hi guys! Well, it took forever because of stiff hands and Lupus flareups but I've finally got new pieces listed for you. I've got some really nice things that would make great Holiday gifts. Anything I make from this will help us pay down our medical bills from Lee's recent hospital stay.

If you have any questions about size, necklace length, etc, just ask. I've got dimensions on all the jewelry. They're all priced as listed, from $10 and up. If you see anything you'd like, let me know.

As for payment, I don't take Money Orders but I can take cash, credit card or Paypal, whichever you'd prefer. My Paypal addy is bstaton @ iglou.com (without the spaces) for payment. I'll just have to have your zip code to add shipping to the final cost. Sending payment via Friends and Family would be great, too. They take out tons of fees otherwise.

Sales Stuff )

If you could spread the word about my listings, any help would be greatly appreciated. As always, Thanks so much for looking! :)

03:28 pm - The Fannish Refugee Trail

A snarky nonnie on [community profile] fail_fandomanon referred to Pillowfort as "Dumblr".

Yep. I lol'd.

I set up an account there, but I honestly can't use the site. It's far too unstable, as are the rules. When it settles down, we'll see. Their timing for imploding like this is impeccable though, as in impeccably bad.

But this isn't my first rodeo on the fannish refugee trail. Even if I never did use Tumblr that much.

~*~

I'm also in Twitter here: https://twitter.com/IngridMatthews the place where all my drunken shit-posting goes to die.

Now to go fill some [community profile] fandom_stockings if it kills me. Which, at this late period of life, it probably will. (</i>"They're gifts!" I chant. "You won't be judged that hard. THEY'RE GIFTS, DAMN YOU WRITING BLOCK."</i>

10:12 am - Also Comes In Sober

Drunken shit-posting on Twitter is more fun than I thought, especially when I dig up stuff like this to show off.




The only Etheria princess for me, I say.

~*~

Hey, some [community profile] fandom_stocking stockings are up. I already see some promising stuffs. Now to figure out where the Ao3 collection might be or if there is one. I'm not good at reading entire FAQs at once, which is why I have no idea.

Actually, I usually don't read them until it's too late but we won't talk about that.

~*~

BTW, I'm here on Pillowfort. I'm the one with the swirling circle and nothing else.

https://www.pillowfort.io/ingridmatthews

I don't want to be a Debbie Downer but I have a bad feeling about this place and the poor folks who run it. I don't think they have any idea what they are potentially in for as this long, contentious but ultimately informative thread on [community profile] fail_fandomanon reveals.

But, stranger sites have triumphed over adversity in the past, so who knows?

02:06 pm - Pillowfort Tips

REALLY important Pillowfort tips in this post:

https://skull-bearer.livejournal.com/789692.html

"Hiding NSFW posts is default. Go to Filters & Blacklist to change it.

Your posts not showing up on your feed is default. Go to Filters & Blacklist to change it.

The search function on the Community page doesn’t work well yet. Just type, do not hit enter.

Put some effort into finding an existing community before you create one. I’m already seeing a lot of unnecessary duplicates and those will do nothing but hurt the site at the moment.

Using the Search function for tags works well, but using it to search for communities and users currently does not.

#1 is key. When you first log in and subscribe to a few friends and communities, your Home Feed will be blank until you turn off NSFW. Most seem to be set to NSFW."


I'm going to be honest, the current sluggishness and instability of the site does not give me a lot of confidence that I'll be using it, even though it's a few miles better than Tumblr (threaded replies!) I'm not heartened when I go to change the two simple defaults mentioned here and the site crashes on me ... again.

That being said, I'm known for my relative patience. Relatively .

01:50 pm - My Wish List 2018...

Because of being sick I'm even later than usual posting my list. Like I've said before, seeing the comm active over at Wish List, and seeing people's wishes granted, is such a huge present for me. I made the comm for you guys, to be a help, to maybe spread some joy. It always makes me so happy to see everyone using it.

No matter how hard things get I know I'm blessed. Both by the love of my family and by the amazing friendship and support I get from all of you. I really do love you guys. You keep me sane in my insane world, remind me that I'm never alone, no matter what. I can never, ever thank you guys enough for that. I'll sure keep trying, though. Thanks, for always being here to listen, for offering me your help and hearts. It means more to me than I could ever say and I never, ever, take it for granted.

10:37 am - The Things I Forget to Remember

I know I've been off the grid, but good gravy, how did I forget to talk about the awesome ...


Miss Sherlock

It's amazing and gets super amazing at the end of the season where even this, the prickliest of Sherlocks, Sara "Sherlock" Shelly Futaba, love their Watson, Dr. Wato Tachibana, more than life, literally.

I only wish I had an easier streaming access link but I had to cobble together each from here and there, although maybe HBO Now has it? Not sure.

Has anyone else seen this yet?

~*~

Scorpia/Catra eating my brain, like two good Horde ladies should. Also, Mermista actually loving crazy-ass Sea Hawk but pretending to be annoyed by him is the joke, folks. She could fling him out to sea with a flick of her finger but ... doesn't.

~*~

Christmas crochet is failing this year. Today would be a good day to at least finish one scarf. Maybe?

01:15 pm - Inspiration

Dear Cat,

Biting the soft underside of my arm, which hurts like nothing has hurt before, does not inspire me to pet you more.

Just saying.

~*~

Going to see a local band later today, but only after learning they go on a 4pm, which is Old Lady Rock and Roll time! My days of staying up all night with the band are long gone.

Also, I'm guaranteed a seat. For my bad back.

Don't laugh. I didn't think it would happen to me either.

That being said ... LET'S ROCK! *makes secret devil sign*

~*~

If anyone has any She-Ra, Scorpia recs, hand them over. Gen or otherwise, I'm into anything.

02:33 pm - Lex Luthor and the Princess of Gay-Ra

Just remembered that I'm also on Twitter here:

https://twitter.com/IngridMatthews

While on there, I discovered how adorable Michael Rosenbaum still is (https://twitter.com/michaelrosenbum). No really, he's just so cute. Is that Smallville nostalgia hitting me? God, I hope not, lol.

Recommending once again, She-Ra and The Princesses of Power. Highly entertaining, surprising depth and a nearly all-female cast. Give it a shot, you won't regret it.

Here on Netflix: https://www.netflix.com/title/80179762

There's a Scorpia prompt I wouldn't mind writing on [community profile] thehonorofgrayskull but it's under another writer's offers, so ... I'm hoping they might put up a promptfic post instead of having writers offer and people ask underneath. That way I wouldn't feel as though I'm trespassing. But it's all good, I might butt in anyway if they don't take it up.

And hey, [community profile] fandom_stocking, where is muh stockings to fill? I hear people go through the requests and start filling already but I'm not proactive and organized enough for that. Come on, I wanna write! Slap those babies up there, please.

05:44 pm - Not a great day today...

On the plus side, I can actually close the fingers of my right hand again. It took mega doses of Cortical Steroids, three doc visits in the last two weeks and new meds to get here but I'll take any victory I can get. My pain levels are a lot better right now, too. Another thing to feel blessed by.

The not so good thing is that we got another medical bill in the mail today for $120 that we don't have the money to pay. That get's added to the $10,662.26 we already owed. Plus I had to call and ask for extensions on our Gas, Electric and Water Bills so our services won't be turned off. It's hard having to do that but we're pretty broke right now with all the other medical bills I've been paying and all the expense of my having been sick the last couple of weeks.

Because of my hands I haven't been able to get things posted for sale which isn't helping either. I spent this afternoon doing jewelry photography, I've got to get stuff up and sold just to help cover basic stuff. We have to have gas for Lee to get back and forth to work, groceries, cat food. If you could help me pass the word when I've got stuff up I'd really appreciate it.

I hate feeling like such a failure. I promise to keep working very hard until I can dig our way out of this mess somehow. One foot in front of the other, right? Hope that you guys are doing ok and are having a good Friday.

*hugs*

Hi guys! Like last week, I haven't gotten to see the eppy yet. My plan is to watch both last week's and this week tonight after I post this. Being sick truly is not fun, I am so far behind on everything. I was determined that you guys wouldn't have to wait, though.

The file's are almost finished uploading. Once they're done, just follow the links below and then click to download.

Supernatural 14.08 Byzantium MP4 File

Supernatural 14.08 Byzantium AVI File

Sure hope that everyone is doing okay. Miss you all. I promise, I'll do my best to post more tomorrow.

02:01 am - Tis the Season don't you know...

Guys, again, I am so sorry that this is being posted so late. No matter what, I didn't want to let my rl problems hold me back on this so, this note is to announce that both the LJ Wish List and the DW Wish List comms are now officially open for their yearly, wonderful, holiday business! There have already been new wish requests posted so, please, go take a look and see if there are ways that you can help.

Once again it's been such a hard year for so many of us to get through; health problems, job loss, the loss of loved ones, unbelievable pounding by rl problems like we've never seen before. That's why someplace like this is needed, now more than ever. We need to reach out to one another. If you have a need, post it. If you know of a friend who is having a rough time of it, and needs those extra hugs and help that only fandom can give, tell us about them. We're all here and ready to listen. I promise, we'll help in any way we can.

Please, look around, see if there are things you might be able to help with. No matter how small it may seem to you, it could help bring happiness, and help, to someone else in need. That's always a very good thing. I love seeing all the increased activity on the comm. I'm really hoping that we can help make each others holidays brighter, make them a happier place to be.

Also, don't forget, all of you who do crafts, make jewelry, have things to sell, give away or trade, Dusty Corners is a great place to have them be seen. Post links to your Esty stores if you have them, let us know if you've posted things for sell on EBay or one of the other auction sites. With the holidays coming up people are starting to think about buying presents for friends and family and I'd love for them to want to buy from you. Plus, if there's a charity you'd like to help, post those links there, too.

So, share this everywhere! Pass the word along about the two comms being open, post your lists. If you see someone on your fl make a needs post who isn't on either the LJ Wish List or the DW Wish List send them over to the comms. The more their wishes are seen, the better chance there is that someone may be able to grant them. I've got new artwork for the banners made and will get them uploaded and active as soon as possible.

Let's all try to make this holiday, our TWELFTH year with Wish List being active, one of the best ones ever for one another! :)

*hugs*

01:45 am - Wish List Guidelines...

I'm so sorry that I hadn't gotten this posted already, being sick has made me behind on everything. This is me trying to begin to catch up if I can.

While I know that most of us are old hands at these things, I also know that we have friends who will be having their very first Holiday season here in DW and LJ land. Especially with the new friends we've aquired due to all the Tumblr madness. Because of that, I didn't want to just assume that everyone knows how wish list works. So, here you go guys, a simple little primer, or refresher, on the mysteries of Wish List. Hope it helps:

Wish List Guidelines:

Step One
- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Sam/Dean icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.
- Don't forget to post your Wish Lists over at either the LJ Wish List or the DW Wish List comms as well as your journal. They're both an open comm so you don't have to join to post. The more your list is seen, the greater the chance that someone out there can fulfill your wishes.

Step Two
-Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another fan's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

In related news, don't forget, all of you who do crafts, make jewelry, have things to sell, give away or trade, Dusty Corners is a great place to have them be seen. Post links to your Esty stores if you have them, let us know if you've posted things for sell on EBay or one of the other auction sites. With the holidays coming up people are starting to think about buying presents for friends and family. They can't buy your pretties if they don't know they exist.

Plus, if there's a charity you'd like to help, post those links there, too.

The main thing is, have fun! Make yourself feel better by knowing that we're helping one another. The greatest gift will be that we'll all have a nicer Holiday than we would have had alone. Please, be sure to share this everywhere you can. Let's make the List light up with activity, fun and helping each other this year like we never have before. :)

*hugs*
