Blow out my candles!

Forgive me, friends list. It has been a week since my last post. In that time, so much has happened, the non-fannish high points being:

1. Bela Fleck at the new SF Jazz Center. Banjo fun! (Also, dinner beforehand with dear friends.)
2. Gershwin and Ravel at the SF Symphony with Dear Old Dad, who was in town for....
3. McDiva's Third Annual Fashion Show! Big doings! A triumph! One of these days, I'll post pictures.
4. A whole bunch of school-related stuff, and also work related, well, work.
5. Huge flurry of getting ready for vacation/college tour week. Still on-going. Why else would I be making a post?

But I had to note that today is the fifth anniversary of posting my first fanfic on LJ! Just five years after Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air. Late to the party, but very happy to be here. [personal profile] herself_nyc encouraged me to try my hand, and I posted without knowing it was her birthday! So, now it's a milestone day for two reasons. Happy birthday to you, darling, and happy fanniversary to me. I hoped to have some fic to post today, but that's not happening. I am working on my Seasonal Spuffy story, though, so there will be something soon!

Love to you all!

OOOH! I wanna see McDiva's fashion show!

And happy LJ-versary!

I've got to get my dad to cut loose with the photos he took at the Fashion Show. It was so cool!

Thanks for the good wishes! Carry on with fandom studies!

Sounds like you have a much more exciting life than me. LOL When do you start your college tour? Congratulations on your anniversary. It's amazing sometimes to look back at the length of time we have spent in the fandom.

I alternate between long stretches of never leaving the house with intense flurries of doing All The Things. It works for me. ;-)

We did our first tour today. It was really good! I'm thinking this might not be a total waste of time! Imagine!

It is amazing how much this particular obsession has lasted. The other night at dinner, a friend (who I had introduced to Buffy) asked what had come along to replace it in my interests! "Nothing! I am interested in a lot of things, but nothing can compare with Buffy." *nods*

I know! I am a grown adult with a fairly high-level career, and sometimes I can't wait to get home from work so I can make pretty pictures of Spike with Photoshop. I've been obsessed with this show for years and it just makes me laugh to think about the fact that it never really fades for me.

Happy Faniversery to you! So glad to hear that you have a seasonal spuffy story for me to look forward to as well!

I'd be happier about my SS story if it were farther along. Hmph. But I'm pretty happy with all the fun I'm having on this Pacific Northwest trip. Very satisfying.

PNW? Squee! Though you're hitting us at bad weather time. SUpposed to clear up and be sunny this weekend! I may be biased but IMO very few places are prettier than the Pacific North West in sunny spring weather!

And I look forward to your SS story either way!

I don't mind the weather a bit. We usually come up later, so it's kind of nice to see a different side of the old place. Besides, San Francisco isn't exactly known for its brilliant sunny days. I am going to miss the August blackberries, though.

Happy 5th LJ anniversary!

I hope the college tour goes well.
May. 29th, 2013 02:24 am (UTC)
Thanks, Sweetie! I'm having a good time, and McDiva thinks we're making good use of our time, so I call it a success, so far!

A belated happy anniversary to you, my dear. *mwah, mwah* Delighted you began, and delighted you're still with us!

(Mine is coming up in early July. Five years. Yikes.)
May. 29th, 2013 02:26 am (UTC)
Thanks, m'dear! Still so much to keep me here, you not least!
May. 27th, 2013 08:12 pm (UTC)
Happy Anniversary! So glad you started in.
May. 29th, 2013 02:27 am (UTC)
Me, too! It's been revelatory.
