...yeah, ahahaha, no.

So I spent the hols with my parents ('time with my parents' is a disproportionately large percentage of my social life, actually, especially since I'm twenty-five, but I ♥ them so whatever), including NYE. We got drunk, ate tacos and watched CNN. Which I know sounds lame, but watching Kathy Griffin try to make Anderson Cooper's head explode is actually really entertaining, and after that we listened to music and babysat my Dad, who is FIFTY YEARS OLD and apparently still can't hold his wine, or at least learn when to say when. We call him the Problem Child.

You probably think I'm kidding, but I'm really, really not. I hold my liquor better than he does. But he is a cute drunk, we usually just listen to music (with me and my laptop as the DJ). I actually got them to listen to ADAM LAMBERT and LIKE IT. Which, since they don't usually like anything recorded after I was born and especially disdain American Idol, is quite the accomplishment.

I love my parents. A lot. And you guys (girls) too.

So I just spent the night/morning talking my mother off a metaphorical ledge. And since apparently I am biased, I need your opinions. If, theoretically, a mother could have a long, involved, philosophical discussion about whether or not they are a bad parent with their ADULT child, and the adult child does not scream at them or whimper and run to the nearest therapist, the mother is probably NOT a bad parent, y/n?

My mother seems to think that because she isn't rich and able to give me my every material desire, hasn't been the first perfect person in the history of the universe and therefore set a flawless example, and I'm not featured in Forbes and/or deliriously happy with my life, she has somehow failed. I tell her that the fact that we have a strong relationship and I can talk to her about losing my virginity, stupid teenage experimental drug use, stalker ex-boyfriends, how hard it is to resist the urge to be mean and vindictive to someone who probably deserves it, and other life crises is more important than said Forbes feature/delirious happiness. She says I'm biased.


Help me convince her that she is suffering from a severe case of Unecessary Overachiever.

Spent the evening with my darling much-adored parents, a.k.a. my mom and stepdad, rockin' out to Grateful Dead and The Doors, Arlo Guthrie and Zeppelin and The Eagles. Because my parents are aging hippies, and entirely awesome, and when we hang out we listen to classic rock and blues and smoke up and drink wine and dance around like dorks and stay up entirely too late. You can see why they are much-adored. To my bandom and JoBros new friends, this is the kind of music I normally listen to, so you can see why I fought those fandoms tooth and nail. To my SPN friends, you see why I adore that fandom so completely. But yes, having fun. Love you all. I didn't get the writing I'd had planned finished, but I did have a helluva lot of fun. See you in the morning, hopefully with new fic. ♥ ♥ ♥
This is a typical conversation I might have with my mother (I speak first):




"Barmaid's evil spawn."



*makes finger-gun* "BANG!"

"Thank you."

We love each other really.
so, it started like this.

I took a leave-of-abscence from my job, because they were making me insane in the head a little bit. I thought I would quit smoking, get in shape, relax, visit my family, get lots of writing done.

did that. but not like I thought I would.

There was also skinny-dipping, and getting extremely drunk and stoned with my mother, and my dog had puppies, and I almost had an affair with my MARRIED ex, and I have a million-and-a-half ideas on the go and not enough time to finish them all, and the J2 fandom ATE MY BRAIN and yeh.

and then last night I was posessed by the dominant!Jared muse, and I wrote dark porn until ridiculously late and then had a cigarette.

I hadn't had one since MARCH.

*hangs head in shame*

okay then. methinks it's time I went back to work.

Cause I love you guys, here's the quote of the day

"The heart has reasons that reason knows not of."

and now have some links so you know why I have been neglecting my fic, because these ladies are awesome with a side of fries and YOU MUST READ THEM!

do eeeet. you know you wanna.
