Hi, luvs!

I just realized that it's close to my 10th anniversary here on LJ. I created this journal on October 24, 2006, made my first post on November 12th, and my first fic posting on November 21st (Announcement I: The Ready Room), introducing myself to the DC Comics community here on-line. Little did I know the friends I would make and the prolific writing in my future! Good times, good times. :)

I don't know if I'll come up with something for the anniversary, but I wanted to acknowledge it to all my friends here on my f-list, and who have stuck around when a lot of people took off for shinier baubles platforms. A big THANK YOU to all the people who have encouraged me during low points, celebrated with me in good times, and helped me with gifting me with paid accounts and extra icon userpics, which has really made life here more fun. :)

I've had a great time reading, writing, and hosting my Challenges over the years, too. The 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge is my next-to-last Challenge, as I'm seriously considering doing something special for Wonder Woman next year to commemorate her first ever live-action movie. That will be my grand final Challenge and how better to do it than with one of my all-time favorite characters? :) I'm pretty proud of the many Challenges I've hosted (Complete List here) and another big THANK YOU to all who contributed during these past ten years.

It's been a rainy morning with plenty of fog, but we need the rain after a summer of drought. The leaves are turning bright colors and my sister and I are going to the orchard tomorrow to get fresh apples (can't get any fresher!). Life is good. Enjoy your weekend, my friends! :)

Hi, luvs!

Fall is in full swing here. The trees are starting to turn colors and the weather, while a little too warm for my taste, is semi-autumnal. I’ll be going to the orchard one of these weekends soon (getting some fresh apples and an apple pie), and the apartment is decorated with red, yellow, and orange, complete with ceramic and real pumpkins. :) I even have my flying Witch on the front door!

A reminder that the 2015 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge is running. If you have a Marvel Comics idea that you can crossover with DC, remember that crossovers are welcome, and is not limited to Marvel.

I bought some apple/pomegranate lotion the other day. It smells divine!

I usually don’t buy doughnuts or muffins, but during October it’s a weekly run to Dunkin’ Donuts to get both in pumpkin flavors! Dontcha just LOVE pumpkin flavor?

I received my Trader Joe’s Frequent Flyer in the mail a few days ago. It’s the October (Pumpkin) edition. Sweet!

Patriots/Cowboys this Sunday! Whoo hoo!

I’m going to a Halloween party next Wednesday. I’m going as a Patriots fan with my Tom Brady jersey, my Patriots cap, and anything else I can scare up that’s Pats-themed. :)

After a few days of very hot weather, thunderstorms cleared things out Wednesday night and it's back to fall weather here. It's so cool on my balcony early in the day that even when it's hot out front, I have to wear long pants and a sweatshirt when I sit outside! :)

School started this week. I'm very glad I went to school when it started the day after Labor Day. Maybe it's good to go for a short week and get the next Monday off, but I think it's a better mindset for kids to have the entire summer off before starting the school grind again. Freedom is fleeting. Soon enough they'll be stuck in the rat race of adulthood. It's nice to have free summers while you can get 'em.

My sister told me to keep September 27th (a Saturday) open on my social calendar. Yay! Looks like I'm going to get a nice birthday surprise when the time comes. :)

I changed the layouts of my journal and comms, which is always a fun little task.

I heard that Hollywood's summer season is down 25% from last year. Can't say I'm surprised. My Movie Night buddies and I have skipped several times in the past six months because there just hasn't been anything even remotely interesting. I've talked to other people and they've cut way back on going to the movies, too. There's just very few 'must-see-right-away' movies for them. They just wait to see them on Netflix on FX or whatever.

It used to be that Hollywood would save their big guns for the actual summer, then they began moving back to June, May, and finally, now it's April. Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier would have been the blockbuster released in July or August. Besides, just about every movie on the cineplex schedule is a sequel or remake. Very few original films. And most of those are low-quality, because Hollywood keeps going to well 'til they drain it dry.

Writing is kind of like a rollercoaster lately. It was going well for awhile and then nothing the last few nights. The only time I have to write is at night and I've been exhausted with absolutely no energy. :(

I'm hopeful that autumn will get my blood going! After all, autumn means the changing of the leaves, pumpkins and apples and Halloween and, oh, yeah, my birthday! ;)
