LJ Anniversary! Let's Do A Meme.  
People often tag me for memes and I always start with the good intention of doing them...but then I don't. Nevertheless and all, to commerate my LiveJournal Anniversary (TODAY!) I made a meme of my own.

Technically my first post was on May 5th. When The BFF set up my LJ for me, she made a post welcoming me to the great big world of LiveJournal. But since I totally spaced that last week, well, I guess my LJ anniversary is technically the day that I made my first post anyways. It also happens to be THE NEPHEW'S BIRTHDAY! Which is why I am doing this meme all at once, instead of spacing it out over the weekend like I had originally planned. We are throwing him a party tomorrow. As in all things in our family, it has become a whole big thing. But he gets his dragon wading pool from me tomorrow, so that'll be a blast. (He's five now, you peoples. FIVE! How the hell did that happen?!)

Anyway, let us begin...

I'm just going to answer from my May 13th post, which was the first post that I made myself, but if you are interested - here is the May 5th post from The BFF welcoming me to LiveJournal-Land. Aren't you guys all glad that she didn't wait around for me to set one up for myself - (because I am lame and never would have) - but just went ahead and did it for me? I sure am glad.

Last post being the one made right before this post.

I immediately sat down to record in writing that I was absolutely positive they were about to kill Castiel. Guess what I currently think is going to happen to Castiel in the season finale of SPN next week? Yep.

Fics

First fic you ever recced: A Quotable 'verse by anyothergirl415

Recced on May 22, 2010 - It's M2, which is a pairing I still haven't gotten over. This is what I had to say about it - The Quotable 'verse in-particular. Misha has this like OCD sort of problem where he only talks in movie quotes, which sounds absolutely cracky, but is genius. The writer gets so much through Misha even with just quotes, the writing is brilliant, the emotion is astounding and the adoration Mike has for Misha is so amazing. Plus, bonus!J2, so what's not to love?.

Last fic you ever recced: The Rachel Nieland 'verse by liptonrm.

Recced on April 22, 2011 - It's about Bobby and his daughter and how we make our own family - (yep, still a sucker for that theme) - and has some awesome characterizations of all the Winchesters (and some wee!chesters too!) and you know what, I was blaming my viewing of "Deadwood" for my current huge-ass Bobby crush I got going on right now - but it may actually be the fault of this 'verse.

# of your own fics posted: 27 fics posted. So, that's like roughly two a month.

First fic of your own that you posted: He Was Still Just Rosenbaum.

It's M2. /gasp shock/ I must have been hard into that phase right then. I posted it for liptonrm's birthday after she told me a story about someone using cough syrup in a water bong. It seemed like a Rosenbaum thing to do. Also, the Js were in it. I think I was a little angsty that week, so it came out less funny than intended, but I still love it. I know, you are all shocked that I love my own work.

Last fic of your own that you posted: The Battle Of The Bubbles.

Sam comes home sick and finds Dean taking a bubble bath. Do you need to know anything else about this story? Fine, Dean also is playing with toy army men. ;)

Fanvids

First fanvid you ever recced: Bad Romance is a Wincest vid of a fucked up nature. Bad relationship, excellent vid. That was on May 28, 2010 wherein I also recced two other SPN vids and a Star Trek vid. Also, um, a bunch of other crack. It was clearly the post of crack. And before that I recced Mark Sallings Tribute to his Glee Family - but IDK if you'd call that a Fanvid persay.

Last fanvid you ever recced: This ridiculous Mulder-is-so-cute vid. That was April 22, 2011 wherein I also recced a Castiel/Sherlock vid and a Mulder/Scully vid.

# of your own fanvids posted: None. I actually made some years ago in LotR fandom, but they are photo vids only, like slideshows, so not really up to fandom standards. Still, I may post them someday, for funsies.

First fanvid of your own that you ever posted: Nope.

Last fanvid of your own that you ever posted: Nope.

Art & Wallpapers

First piece of art you ever recced: I don't think I ever have. I am so lame. I look at art and comment on art and love art...but nope, don't have an art rec tag, and can't remember ever doing this. I didn't even link you guys to the beautiful pic of Misha Collins and Steve Carlson in bed together that tringic drew for me. I am a bad person. Must rectify this.

Last piece of art you ever recced: Nope.

# of posts containing your own pieces of art: 15. That's fic art/holiday art/autograph art. Someday I should post something I have actually drawn or painted or such.

First piece of your own art posted: This SuperPretendNatural Fic Art/Wallpaper that I made for my sister when I did her big epic birthday project last year.

Last piece of your own art posted: This LotR Easter Card I posted at Easter.

First wallpaper you ever recced: I don't think I ever recced a wallpaper.

Last wallpaper you ever recced: Nope.

# of posts containing your own wallpapers: 8.

First wallpaper of your own posted: Technically I guess it was that SuperPretendNatural Fic Art I just linked above, but skipping that...have this wallpaper of Jared Padalecki. Posted for jojothecr's birthday on July 23, 2010.

Last wallpaper of your own posted: This Winchester Family Wallpaper. That was March 24, 2011 - when I also posted some SuperPretendNatural wallpapers.


Various Other

First photo you ever posted: It doesn't want to let me link to the picture, but I love it, so here I'll repost it. Misha!

Last photo you ever posted: This sandwich. On May 2, 2011 I made a SPN Picspam for flawed_x_design's birthday. This picture of Dean's sandwich from the episode "Changing Channels" was the final pic in the post.

# of polls you have posted: Still haven't done a poll yet.

The first poll you ever posted: Nope.

The last poll you ever posted: Nope.

*snort* Of course you needed a tinhat!

This was kinda awesome...but ugh, I'm too lazy to do it...I like small meme's :p
dodger_sister: fangirldodger_sister on May 16th, 2011 04:40 am (UTC)
EVERYONE NEEDS A TINHAT, BB!!

I had a real tinhat once. My sister made it for me one Sunday morning after church, while she was waiting for me to drag my lazy ass out of bed. I woke up and found it sitting on my desk. She decorated it with pink glitter glue and stickers, possibly of kittens. Whenever I was doing online fandom things, I put it on. Otherwise, my cardboard standy of the hobbit Pippin wore it on his head. He had pink heart earrings to match the tinhat.

True story. ;)

It was an epicly long meme, wasn't it? Not shortened by the fact that I talk too much. Had you noticed that about me? I planned on dividing it up over a few days, but I knew I would be wiped out after The Nephew's birthday party and I figured if I didn't do it all at once, I would be a lazy ass and just never finish it.

Happy LJ anniversary bb! I, for one, am very happy you have a lj. I've enjoyed the friendship we've developed over the last months.

That is one hell of a meme you've produced there! lol I think I might give some of it a whirl, spreading it out over several posts though. :)
dodger_sister: fangirldodger_sister on May 16th, 2011 04:46 am (UTC)
THANK YOU! I am amused that my LJ anniversary is also The Nephew's birthday. I will never forget now!

I am so happy to have an LJ so we could meet, bb. You should know, when I talk about you to The BFF, I am all, "Well, my LJ BFF was saying something about Castiel..."

I typed up the meme and thought, "No one will read it if you leave it that long. Save it to a document and spread it out over three days," but then I was all, "Screw it. It's done, just push Post." It def needs to be spread out over a few days.

I just enjoyed looking back at things like how apparently the month I got this journal was also right during my hardcore Misha/Michael phase, lol.

Do you know when your LJ anniversary is? I'm just curious.
ranuaranua on May 18th, 2011 12:06 pm (UTC)
when I talk about you to The BFF, I am all, "Well, my LJ BFF well thank you sweetie, the idea you refer to me as your LJ BFF gives me a warm fuzzy. :)

Do you know when your LJ anniversary is? I thought it was in August, but looking at my profile it looks like it's in October.

Happy LJ anniversary!

Awesome meme is awesome. It was a fun read. :)
dodger_sister: fangirldodger_sister on May 20th, 2011 03:17 am (UTC)
Why, thank you, darling. I just can't believe it has been a whole year. It feels like it has been both that the time went by really fast...and that I feel like I have known you all forever. :)
wolfrider89: 1 tattoowolfrider89 on May 20th, 2011 08:34 am (UTC)
Yeah, I know what you mean. Sometimes I wonder what the hell I did before LJ. Who did I squee with? Except the Roommate (now ex-roommate, I guess.) of course. :)
dodger_sister: fangirldodger_sister on May 20th, 2011 10:32 pm (UTC)
LJ has kind of eaten my life but what the hell did I used to do with my time before I had it? I honestly don't remember.

But lucky for me, my sister is a huge geeky fangirl. And The BFF and my other good friend (the one with the new baby) I actually met years ago in Lord of the Rings fandom and now they are my best girls in RL. So even before I came back to the internet, I was lucky to have people to squee with.

But none of them want to talk about Chris/Steve or Chad Michael Murray, and that is no good. ;)

Yeah, see, can't have that. ;) There's always someone on LJ to squee with. :P
