8 Random Facts/Habits...or Everything You Were Dying to Know/Scared to Ask About Naughtyscrabble
dodger_winslow got me good. Here I am spilling my guts. In front of God and the whole LJ. OK...mostly the LJ...God already pretty much knows my quirks and eccentricities. God does have a wry sense of humor.

Here is the 8 Random Facts/Habits meme:

The Rules:

• Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
• People who are tagged need to write their own lj about their eight things and post these rules.
• At the end of your lj, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
• Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your lj. goes nothing...

1. I love black pepper. Well, love may be a bit of an understatement. People stare at me when I use it. In restaurants, if the pepper shaker is too slow...damn those tiny holes...I remove the top, dump pepper into my palm and sprinkle it on my food till it’s properly black.

2. I live alone. No, wait...that’s a lie. You cannot call living with three dogs, two cats, one ferret, two iguanas and five box turtles living alone.

3. Years ago, I was a very active member of the Society for Creative Anachronism. Making my own costumes, traveling and camping out at regional meets, fighting as an ‘archer’ in battles...the whole nine yards.

4. I owned a motorcycle at one time. A Honda 350.

5. In previous incarnations, I’ve been a legal assistant, waitress, cashier, insurance agent, vet assistant, office manager for an animal rescue league, short order cook, private investigator and sales consultant for a car dealership.

6. I’ve modeled and danced professionally as a Middle Eastern dancer.

7. I’ve fire walked. Ouch. No, just kidding...I came through completely unscathed. Other things terrify snakes.

8. I love dark beer, Kahlua, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Amarretto, soft red wines (jeez, sounds like I have a drinking problem, doesn’t it?), dark chocolate (I should probably make a separate entry just for chocolate), Mexican food, barbeque, Italian, exotic and spicy foods (I eat dried candied ginger straight up, a corned beef sandwich without lots of horseradish is a sacrilege and curries and chilies...bring them on). I’m a very good cook (when I cook), and an excellent baker.

OK, no one said there couldn’t be more than eight...did they? This is kinda fun...didn’t know I was so freakin fascinating. If you’re still interested, read on...

9. I went to Italy my senior year in high school. It’s still one of the greatest highlights of my life.

10. I can order a beer and swear in Spanish. That makes me bilingual, right?

11. I’m a passionate, rabid believer and defender of free speech. You may be a certified moron, idiot and raving lunatic in your views, but I dare anyone to shut you up. Besides, you’re entertaining.

12. I have a sleep disorder.

13. One of my very worst habits is procrastination. But when I finally do get moving, I’m dangerous.

14. My background is Irish, Czech, English and Swedish.

15. I love studying philosophy, psychology and sociology. Humans, in all their brilliance and insanity...their nobility and degradation...fascinate and amaze me.

16. I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up. No...that’s not true. I want to work for Kripke. And LJ really needs to start sending me much time as I spend here.

17. I hate shopping...unless it’s for books, music or weird ass, useless shit. The oddities of the world and history have always fascinated me...I grew up loving Ripley’s Believe It or Not. However, I love and adore garage sales and flea markets.

18. I absolutely believe in extraterrestrial life, spirits and evil entities. There’s a helluva lot more that we don’t know than we do know.

19. I love going fast. And I’ve had quite a number of speeding tickets to prove it. The fastest I’ve ever been was 110 mph on a motorcycle.

20. If I ever had the chance, I would jump at taking a ride in a jet and a hot air balloon. Skip the sky diving, though. I’m fucking crazy, not stupid.

21. I’ve moved over 35 times in my life...across town...across the country. It sucks every time.

22. If I had the time and money, I’d take a one year trip around the world. I’ve already got my itinerary planned out. It’s the independently wealthy part that’s the sticking point.

23. I’m friendly, laid back, very easy going...a diehard, loyal friend. But if you truly betray me, I am your worst do not get a second chance to screw me.

24. I have a penchant for learning things the hard way. Who knows, maybe I just like the challenge.

25. I’ve dabbled in oil painting, beadwork and Sculpey miniatures.

26. My musical tastes are truly eclectic, from Celtic to Classic Rock (that’s right, Sammy, classic rock...not mullet rock) to Big Band to Zydeco and everything in between...E.S. Posthumus, Moody Blues, Enya, Kansas, Dido, Heart, Within Temptation, Santana, Yanni, Josh Groban...just to name a few. The only types I can’t stand are whiney country, hip hop rap (that’s music?) and heavy, brain-numbing metal.

27. When I see a rainbow...which is rare, as I live in the middle of the Chihuahuan Desert in the southwestern US...I run to the phone to call my sister to go out and see it, too.

28. I’m basically an optimist...although, at times it might not seem like it. I stick around just to see what happens next. I’m curious and nosy like that. I believe that people are basically good...I have to. If I thought otherwise, I don’t know that life would be worth it.

29. I regularly amaze myself...both with my creative brilliance and my utter stupidity.

30. I cannot remember life before Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Supernatural and LJ. Damn you. So this is what insanity and addiction feel like.

31. I never fit in growing up...I was always pretty much on the outside, looking in...perhaps as a result of moving so damn much...maybe because I’m an introvert, a loner at heart. Which is not necessarily a bad thing...some very good things in this life are gotten no other way.

32. I love my own company and solitude. Always did, even as a young child...and I jealously guard it. One of the reasons I have a certain ex is that he didn’t respect it.

33. I am generally pretty much fearless (hey, this meme proves it), even reckless at times, by some standards...but I can be a world class wuss, too...depending on the situation. But we won’t talk about least not today.

34. I have an incredible sense of humor (hey, it helps survive the insanity)...all the way from warped to subtle to dry...and back again to warped. I love The Daily Show, The Colbert Report and Carlos Mencia. And Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, Ron White and Larry the Cable Guy.

35. Housework...what’s that???

36. SPAM. eeeeeewwwwww. Is that a food??? Whoever invented Spam had a twisted, sick sense of humor. Besides, how do you invent a new meat? It’s unnatural. I have a deep and abiding hatred for Spam. Definitely caused by being traumatized at having to eat so much of it growing up. I keep a can of it around the house just to laugh gleefully and remind myself that I don’t have to eat it anymore. Ever. No. Nuh Uh. Can’t make me.

p.s. The ONLY time you’d force me to eat that nasty stuff again is if I was starving and I only had a choice between rattlesnake and Spam. Then that Spam would be looking mighty good.

37. I really like making lists.

Okie that I’ve bored everyone and their dogs to desperate tears, it’s my turn to choose the next, tagees. *takes out magic wand* mmm...let’s see...

Oh, and...

38. I don’t necessarily follow the rules...I’m a rebel at illustrated by my ginormous list. Hey, why start now? Why tag only eight friends when I can tag 15? *taps magic wand...POOF!*

PREVIEW: Morgan's Maniacs' Exclusive New Interview
Preview of New Interview!!!

Author Alex Irvine talks about writing and
The Supernatural Book of Monsters, Demons, Spirits and Ghouls


Morgan's Maniacs: What's your take on the characters of Sam, Dean and John Winchester? How do they compare to other 'hero' archetypes?

Alex Irvine: One primary difference, I think, is that the Winchesters operate as a group (even now that John is dead). The archetypal hero ventures out alone, and returns home changed in some way. Sam and Dean can't go home. There's nothing to go home to, and in any case, they haven't really had a home since they were small children....

Sam and Dean, as it's made clear in the show, need each other, and neither of them has any hope of completing the Winchester quest—killing the Yellow-Eyed Demon—alone. This foregrounding of family in an extended quest story is a pretty interesting change, and one that I think is really fruitful in the show. Sam and Dean have their individual reasons for doing what they do, and individual approaches, and the tension between these approaches makes for interesting stories.

The full interview will be posted Friday, April 26, 2007.

Be Still My Heart (Revised)
Title: Be Still My Heart (Revised)
Author: naughty
Rating: PG13
Genre: Gen / Angst
Characters: Sam and Madison
Pairing: none
Spoiler: 2.17 Heart
Warning: character death, language
Disclaimer: I have absolutely no rights to Supernatural, John, Dean or Sam...damn it. I only worship them from afar.
Summary: This is the missing scene right after Sam walks from the kitchen with the gun. Initially, I didn't even want to think about that was too awful. But then, after a few days, I WOULD have Sam handled it?

Author’s Note: My muses DEMANDED a major revision to tell the whole story properly. * damn muses...don’t you love them? * The original story (3/28/07) just never seemed complete something was missing. It was bothering me for days. So, I expanded it and fleshed it out. I wanted it more intense...more vivid...with more visceral punch. Then a second reworking. This time with the inclusion of Sam and Madison’s thoughts and fears interwoven during this entire scene.

~ My muses LOVE comments...and so do I. ~

NEVER SURRENDER DREAMS...Our Dream for Season Three
[I posted this over at the CW Lounge Supernatural Forum.]

This was just too great to remain buried among hundreds of other needs to be front and center! As I read this, I thought my God...this is so powerful and’s too freakin cool..and it is totally spot on for Supernatural’s current situation.

NEVER SURRENDER DREAMS needs to be our official Supernatural fandom mantra!

Many warm thanks to the wonderful and amazing MysterRio2002 for finding and posting this incredible piece, especially now, when we need it most:

Okie doke....adding my (or rather, Joe Straczynski's) two cents worth. I've seen a few of the 'will we get a third season' posts and the referencing of this Kristen person...don't know who she is...not sure I want to...but anyway.

It reminded me of something J. Michael Straczynski wrote on the cover of the booklet accompanying the fifth season DVD's of Babylon 5...

Now, granted, it's all in reference to B5...but I think it's something we could all easily apply to Supernatural....

"For five years, as we struggled to find a home for Babylon 5, we were told that there was no market for a science fiction show of this nature, that the audience couldn't handle a five-year arc, that you couldn't compete with the juggernaut that was Star Trek.

We Sold the Pilot.

After we produced the pilot, everyone said there was no way we could afford to make the show on the scale necessary for the story, that television EFX weren't up to that level yet, that the market couldn't sustain more than one series about a space station. TV Guide critic Jeff Jarvis, weighing in on the odds of us making it to series said simply, 'fat chance.'

We Got the Series.

Every year of the series, the odds of renewal were always accompanied by the predictions of doom. The market was changing, the competition was fierce, and the fledgling network that carried us was becoming increasingly fragile.

We Continued to Get Renewed.

Finally, after the fourth season, during which the network itself folded its tent, we reached the point where it seemed that the fifth and final season might never materialize.

We Got the Fifth Season. We Told the Story We Wanted to Tell, and We Told It to Completion.

On the front of my house, there is an art deco door knocker, with a small silver plaque in the center. It contains just three words: 'Never Surrender Dreams.'

Faith Manages.

Here Endeth the Lesson."
