Okay. I have Things, and I've decided to separate them into two different posts, because they're whoa nelly different, and combining them would feel wrong. This post is all made up of good things. Thinky things and bad things will come later.

Today, I had a low-key and totally awesome birthday, which is just the way I like them. )

Oh, also randomly, I have a Wonder. Is there an icon that you particularly associate with being 'me'? I ask this because there are people who are much more locked into a default than I have always been, and I don't know that I've got an icon that I super regularly use as 'me', and yet there are lots of people who I totally associate with a particular icon.

This came up tonight a few times, once when I linked to an icon which was totally blank and unfancy, with no name attached, but just from the specific picture, the person I was talking to said 'oh that's [so and so's] icon!'. So now I'm curious. What icon do you think of when you think of me? What says 'Jay'? (And if this is over on dreamwidth, I really need to get on that whole paid account thing so I can actually have my 'me' icons uploaded, and not just a few!)

Fiercy! It's your birthday! Aren't you excited? I'm excited.

You're one of those people who I truly can't picture my life without you in it. You're my friend, you're my cowriter, you're the person who gets me in trouble and keeps me from trouble and pulls me out of trouble when I get myself in trouble. Also, you'd be the person who laughs both at and with me when I told you that the word 'trouble' no longer has any meaning after that much repetition.

I love the people we've created, the stories that we're telling, and the worlds that we're building. But apart from that, I love having you as a friend. You've kept me sane when the world felt very stupid and crazy, and I love you for that.

Be well, take care, and have a lovely and beautiful day.

Happy birthday!

Okay. Point one--happy (belated) birthday to [ profile] apetslife! I hope you had a wonderful day and got into all kinds of wicked and wonderful trouble. And that there was cake.

Point two--happy on-time birthday to [ profile] ashinae! I expect you to have a wonderful day, and get into all kinds of wicked and wonderful trouble. And have cake.

pet, you are about nineteen different kinds of awesome, you know that? You're one of those people who is a truly good person, just because that's who you are. I love your writing, I love your Daniel and Jensen and Adrian, I love your enthusiasm, I love how you love your ponies, and I forgive you for talking me into watching The Fast and the Furious, even though I had to put up with Paul Walker wearing those horrible clothes in the one with the numbers in the title. Because really, the hot, the gay, and the awesome fanfic? Totally worth it.

Bee, you are my bee. You push me and you challenge me, and you trick me into fandoms, and into writing things that are dirtybadwrong in the very best of all ways. Really, it's all your fault, because like I've told every other person who talked me into writing naughty things, I'm a very innocent person. Heroes is your fault, SGA and SG1 is your fault, Chuck is your fault, Torchwood is your fault even though you told me it was too scary for me to watch because you also made it sound too good to resist. Hayden is definitely your fault. And if I haven't said thank you any time lately for all of that, and all of the wonderful people in your brain, oh, and for you yourself? Thank you. So much.

Happy birthday, ladies. You make my world a better place to exist in.

Love Jay.

Five years ago today, after about five months of lurking and reading, I decided to bite the bullet and create a livejournal. Not that I thought I'd ever use it, but a lot of people were flocking their porn back then (as it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever, amen), and I didn't want to be left out. Three days later, I created my second journal, joined my first RPG (despite never having written a word of fanfic), and met the first in what would become a series of amazingly wonderful and talented people.

I've made friends who I'm still blessed to call mine. I've lost friends who I still miss, some through burning up, some just faded away. I've co-written millions of words (between the games, fic, and meta verses I write in, no, I'm really not exaggerating). I've traveled for hours by bus and by plane to visit people I'd never seen in person before I stepped off the bus/plane. I've talked on the phone or by voice chat to people from across the country, across the continent, and across the globe. And yes, once that resulted in me accidentally dropping into a North Carolina accent while I was at work, which was embarrassing, but still worth it.

If you're wondering why I'm crossposting an entry about my anniverary on livejournal to other journaling systems, it's because this anniversary isn't just about five year on livejournal. It's about five years of community. Five years of the best and the worst of what the internet, fandom, and online friends and enemies can offer. Five years of laughter, tears, grief. Of death, and of birth. It's about friendship, and knowing that wherever I go in the world, there are couches and spare rooms I can sleep on. It's knowing that I've been able to be there for friends when they needed me, and that when I've needed them, my friends, and complete strangers, have stood up for me.

Once upon a time, I didn't understand how people could think that they could make friends online. How could it be real? You could be talking to anyone! And then, five years ago today, I started a journey that taught me just how wrong I was. So today, I just want to say thank you. To everyone I've known, everyone I know now, and everyone I'm going to meet in the future. For good or for bad, you've all changed and enriched my life in ways that I can't even express. And I'm grateful for that. I'm grateful for you. All of you.

With much love,

Jay Linden.

It's also mocking me. If it were sentient, it would be giving me a raised eyebrow and going 'okay, seriously, with that tummy, with TWO babies in it, you really think I'm still up to the job, you crazy bat?' My bathrobe is mean.

I've updated my RL-stuff journal over here with a baby update, and I've eta'd it since I wrote it this morning. The thirty second version is: babies coming tomorrow. Or, getting kickstarted to come tomorrow. EEK. Am I ready for this? Oh, HELL, no. But then, I don't think anyone ever is.

In not-baby related news, I'm caught up on most of my shows, except for SPN, which I'm an episode behind on. We'll see if I get to that tonight, once the finale is aired. Somehow I think that considering I'll have limited online time in the next couple weeks, I might be able to avoid being spoiled until I get a chance to watch it. We'll just have to see what happens.

I turned 30 on Mother's Day, and I'm still waiting to feel, like, old and stuff. Is that supposed to happen when you turn 30? If it is, I think I'm kind of broken as far as that's concerned, because I still just feel like me. Perhaps this means I'm never going to grow up entirely. This would not surprise me.

Okay--off to sleep, because I am going to go out for dinner for my dad's birthday tonight (May is birthday month in my family, for serious), and then I might kind of be busy tomorrow. With stuff, and things. And stuff. See ya!

A wonderful and happy birthday to one of my very favorite corrupters. You make me laugh, you make me think, you're fun, you're sassy, you're special, and you get it. Whatever the 'it' is.

MWAH, baby. Tons of love.
linden_jay: (Get Fuzzy- Dear Lord Make it stop)
This is the second day in a row that I can actually remember every hour, on the hour, all night long, with the knowledge that I only dozed a little bit between each of them.

So of course, while desperately trying to get at least a little more time with my eyes closed, if not sleeping, before I have to be at work at nine, the phone rings at 7:30.

The secretary is sick. They need me in the office all day.

When does she start work? Oh yeah. 7:30. Le sigh. It's gonna be a long fucking day.

Sorry to everyone I missed yesterday. I left IM signed in when I wasn't around. I'm just that kind of clever.

And in totally unrelated news, a wonderfully happy birthday to Lottie! Much love and happiness, beautiful woman! MWAH!

I think, all too often, we don't take the time to tell the people in our lives how much they mean to us. I know I'm certainly guilty of that, even though I'm blessed to have wonderful friends and co-writers who I love and appreciate and am so glad they're in my life. So when an opportunity comes up for me to tell one of them how much they mean to me, you can bet your ass that I'm going to take it.

Today is darknight999's birthday. )

A very wonderful and Happy Birthday to you! In celebration of your birthday, I commissioned these icons from [ profile] fiercy, who made them for me for you despite not having really much any of a clue what I was talking about. I must be Very Pretty.

Yay to the cutest, sweetest, vanilla-est couple to ever barely share screen time anywhere but in our own heads! (And again, happy birthday, Ashabie. MWAH!)

A most wonderful and happy birthday day to you! Thank you so much for letting us/me steal Jess as much as we do, and once again, I totally take the fall for most/many of the times she's ended up snortgiggling at ass-o-clock in the night time and waking you up.

Since you can now have 6 icons on lj- I thought you could use a few more, so I called in [ profile] fiercy to help.

Again- happy, happy birthday!

Happiest of happy-happy birthdays to Ma Lex. *mwahhuglicksnugglepurrsquish* You make me laugh, you make me smile, you make me go to bed when it's stupid late and I should know better. You're my friend. You're my Lex. Thank you for all of it. Happy birthday *squishmore*
And 'course, it wouldn't be a birthday without pretties *g* Have fun!

Happiest of all happy birthdays to ma wee mutant [ profile] lady_adrian.

My co-writer, my late (late, late) night giggle-buddy, my friend.

If it wasn't for you and you [ profile] palace_orlando , there would be no [ profile] palaceharry.

You're strange, and you're random, and you're always hyper, (and really, what better way to be!) and you kick my writing ass half the time.

You're the reason I know what a wombat is, and why I have a wee stuffed one staring at me right now *pets Mortimer*.

Most of all, you're braver, funnier, stronger, smarter, and more passionate than most people two, three, ten times your age, and a true individual.

Have a wonderful and happy birthday, and an amazing year.

Much love, snugs and rugbytackles,

So- have I mentioned that I have the most wonderful and amazing friends in the world? If I haven't, I should have. And I meant to say this a lot sooner, but the whole ending up in the hospital on my birthday thing totally messed up the last week or so- plus the horror that is Star Wars *shudders* (but that's material for another post).

So- my friends. Love them. I have met so many people online that I respect, care about, love, and have touched me in so many different ways, all of which have taught me something, but this time, I'm talking about my main [ profile] rpg_palace ladies: [ profile] tarnished_raven, [ profile] darkenheart, [ profile] lady_adrian, [ profile] darknight999, [ profile] your_own_path, [ profile] laideedai, and [ profile] angiepen.

They're wonderful and amazing in a million different ways. For reasons strange and unfathomable, they also love me. And, possibly related to either of these first two points- they're all completely and totally mad. This may be one of the main reasons I love them so much.

How are they mad? For my birthday- they wrote fic for me. Het fic. Het crackfic. Het genderswapping crackfic starring my [ profile] rpg_palace character. And they did this because they love me.

I have the best friends in the world. And because such a masterwork deserves- nay, begs to be shared, here's a link to the link- click on 'Wild About Harry', and my attempt to explain it:

"See- they're all nuts, and they love me beyond sense or reason, so they wrote me het crack fic... no, no, I really hate het- but it's okay... well, it kind of is... Ah, you'll just have to read it."

All of you- thank you. Just thank you. *snugs*.
