Eclipse!

Everybody ready for the eclipse? :)

I don't have any special glasses so I'm going old-school: I made a pinhole projector. Easy as pie: take two pieces of paper or cardboard (preferably heavy card stock or white cardboard, though regular paper and brown cardboard will do), and take a pin and make a hole in one piece. During the eclipse stand with your back to the sun, put one paper on the ground or a flat surface (shade it), hold up the pinhole paper and the sun's rays will stream through the hole and you'll see the eclipse. :)

There are slightly fancier projectors (using tin foil and another uses an empty cereal box). You can google 'pinhole projectors' and there are plenty of how-to videos to watch. :)

Hopefully it won't be cloudy tomorrow!

Ready for our Amazing Amazon? :)

I'll be hosting my final BradyGirl_12 Challenge on [community profile] wonderwomanlove and Wonderwomanlove (LJ), my comms dedicated to the Amazing Amazon. Check 'em out and join up! Truly, history will be made with the release of this film, and hopefully we've got a lot of fannish inspiration coming our way. :) Details on the Challenge soon, and [personal profile] ctbn60 has already created a fantastic banner, ready for all participants. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, some WW links for you:

Might be why the movie has been set during WWI because of the vitality of the Movement.)

Timeless

Hi, luvs!

I'm only going by the promos, as obviously the show debuts tonight, but if you're a fan of time travel, you may want to give Timeless a look. It's on NBC tonight at 10:00 and hopefully will be a good show. :)

Fall is finally here! After an early September heat wave, we're in cooler weather now. The trees are starting to turn, and I've got my baby pumpkin and gourds decorating my place. The colors are all red, yellow, and orange with some black thrown in for Halloween! :) My sister and I will be going to the orchard in a few weeks and I might take a trip soon to Trader Joe's for some mini pumpkin pies and cookies. :)

Football is in full swing, and the real season begins for us Pats fans with the return of Tom Brady from his unjust suspension. Watch out, NFL! Could be scorched earth if we're lucky!

Have a good day and enjoy the best season of all! :)

Hi, luvs! What a GREAT birthday I had! Thanks SO MUCH for all the wonderful greetings and goodies! *dances* :)

It was a nice, quiet day. I’d already had My Special Day, courtesy of my sister, so quiet suited me just fine. :)

I received:

My sister BunnyGirl won't be in town for my birthday this Tuesday, so she treated me early to my present. Besides, this wasn't a thing meant to be stuffed in after work.

My Day )

Hi, luvs!

As you can see by the icon on this post, I am busy utilizing my userpic packages and gathering more cool pix to showcase. I can't resist Clark using his heat vision to cook the hot dogs and burgers on the grill. :)

Speaking of cook-outs, I did attend one over the weekend with the requisite menu: hot dogs, hamburgers, pasta salad, potato salad, garden salad, chips, dips, pickles, olives...you know, good stuff! :) Everything tastes better on the grill!

P.S. To get the full effect, check this post out on my journal with its cook-out theme! :)

Hi, luvs!

It's a wonderfully sunny day, which is appropriate as it's the Summer Solstice! Whoo hoo! :)

Funny how it's now entering the darker half of the year when it's summertime, but the days will start to shrink after today. Every day is a gift, right?

For all you Clex fans out there, the [livejournal.com profile] clexmas Spring Fling! Reverse Bang has closed art submissions, but now it's time for the writers, vidders and music mixers to get busy! The Bang is open to all versions of the Clex, not just Smallville, so if you've got ideas from comics, cartoons, or movies, you can use those, too!

Congrats to Cleveland sports fans for a 52-year championship drought in ANY sport ending last night as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the National Basketball Association's Championship Series. It's a sweet feeling, isn't it? :)

Just got back from the eye doctor with a clean bill of health. Always a little nervous, y'know, because...eyes! So I am very relieved. Wearing dark glasses while my eyes are dilated. :)

I am never disappointed at the generosity of my friends in fandom. I woke up this morning to the wonderful message that I'd been gifted with an extension of my paid account! THANK YOU, [livejournal.com profile] catalenamara! *dances* One of the things I miss about no longer attending Media West* Con is seeing you in person. We had a lot of good times there. :)

It's a beautiful day.  I finally put out my plants on deck today. We've had warm weather but suddenly the night temps could hover around freezing, so I waited until now to put the plants out.

Ficcish update coming soon! I know you're all breathlessly awaiting it ;)
bradygirl_12: (trees and flowers 1)
Hope everyone is having a good Earth Day. The weather here was very spring-like. I did my part by cleaning my apartment and sorting my recycling. :) I also took long walks and observed the buds on the trees and bushes.

Enjoy spring showers and flowers! :)
bradygirl_12: (supergirl (new frontier smile))
THANK YOU to the anonymous donor who gifted me with all my extra userpics!!! *dances*

Thanks to all of you who listened to my moping and moaning about losing them. I know it's a small thing, and some might think it's stoopid, but we all have our quirks and this is one of mine. *hugs icons tight* I was pretty bummed with the loss of so many icons, particularly a bunch of Steve/Diana and Bruce/Dick lovelies, but so many more!

I TOTALLY appreciate this! What a great thing to cheer up a bleh Monday, though I admit a snowstorm the day after the first day of spring is pretty funny and very typical of New England! :)

I might even be inspired to do a little more fanficcing! :)

My f-list is THE BEST!!!
bradygirl_12: (kennedy brothers (smiling))
Happy St. Patrick's Day, luvs! :)

'Tis a fine spring day, the birds singin' and the sun warm upon me face. Parades and pubbing and all sorts of shenanigans! To all of the clan, enjoy, and remember, today everyone is Irish! :)

I feel lucky as a charm. Perhaps I should purchase a lottery ticket. At least me shamrock is part of me available icons, so enjoy the pretty pic! :)

'Tis also Evacuation Day, the day in 1776 when the British scooted out o' Boston when the cannons dragged all the way from Fort Ticonderoga in the middle o' winter were placed atop Dorchester Heights. Suffolk County employees have the day off, and any state employees across the great state of Massachusetts may work and take the time off or get nice, green money instead. Ah, a fine day, a fine day, lads 'n' lasses! ;)

A big THANK YOU to [livejournal.com profile] northernwalker for gifting me with a renewal of my extra userpics! *dances* I've had a GREAT day, and this is the perfect cherry on top of the sundae! You're a PEACH, hon! :)

JUSTICE!!!

Justice is served! Tom Brady is free from suspension! So speaketh Federal Judge Richard Berman!

Whoo hoo! Whoo hoo! Whoo hoo!

Happy Fourth of July to all of my fellow Americans! May you enjoy lots of potato salad, hot dogs, and hamburgers on a sunny day or sandy sandwiches at the beach! ;) Happy Birthday to us! :)

Yesterday was a great day! Eleven years after Massachusetts legalized same-sex marriage, the entire United States of America now has marriage equality! Fifty years ago this would have been unthinkable. We've come a long way, baby! :)

I found a notification in my inbox this morning that the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] crooked_halo has extended my extra userpic packages in addition to generous Anon! *dances* Wow, what a great thing to wake up to this morning! THANK YOU, m'dear! MUCH appreciated! :)

Still stressed this week but I hope that a major worry gets resolved in my favor. *hope, hope, hope* Maybe my creative juices will start to flow again once some stress is gone.

I am working on a long WIP at the moment, and still no idea about any Big Bangs this year. I'm hoping that Avengers 2: The Age Of Ultron helps inspire me in a few months. I'm not sure if the Superman vs. Batman movie will do the same, but that might be next year, anyway? Whatever the case, I think Marvel has the better chance of jump-starting my creative battery cables. ;)

I did have another WIP that was going along pretty well until it fell by the wayside. Hopefully I can pick that up in 2015. We shall see.

Again, BIG THANKS!!! I have the best f-list in the world! :)
