happy

Best. Birthday. Ever.

Or best that sievebrain can remember right now.

Another day of heart-stoppingly spectacular weather. HAIR DAY! Brunch at Joe's. A quick ride into the City. And then....THE PARTY.

beta_goddess, chocolate_frapp Sebastian, Giovanni (co-birthday celebrant), smartmunkey, who made the most amazing lemon cake, a mini Getz-together featuring Dean, Ivan and Bubbles, HUBBY!!!!, Ben the Bartender, Rockin' Vince, who sang "You Can't Always Get What You Want" for the House-fraus, Peggy!!!!, The Donald, Jane, Big Frank, Jim (bartender), Jim (other Jim), Yanni, as well as many regulars and a whole other birthday party who got incorporated into ours.

I sang Is This The Way to Amarillo, Let Me Be There (for Giovanni, who's a big Olivia Newton-John fan, and came on stage to sing the bass part), One Night In Bangkok, and I Like It. Frank and I also did our duet of That Old Black Magic and we final managed to pull off the choreography we've been working on for like 10 years.

Giovanni and Rockin' Vince sang Cliff Richard for me. chocolate_frapp did a kick-ass job on Instant Karma (more House-frau love.) Yanni sang "Maria" substituting my real name for "Maria" at some points.

It was honestly, truly one of the happiest days/evenings of my life. You can tell I had a good time because I'm still hoarse today and a bit sore from all the walking, but I would not have missed this whole week for anything. It's so good I'm still feeling happy, even though I'm back at the Desk of Doom.

Next time I bitch about any aspect of my life...I need to remember I had a week like this.

Ask me 3 questions, no more no less. Ask me anything you want - personal, fandom-related, completely random. Ever wanted my view on the meaning of life? Ask away! I reserve the right to answer any way I please, but I will answer. Then post this on your own journal.

Saying Yes! is a challenge designed to showcase characters who like sex, enjoy sex, and want sex -- characters fully capable of giving informed consent, and giving it enthusiastically. It's about characters who don't view sex or any of its aspects as something demeaning or shameful and don't pass similar value judgments on their partners' choices. There are a lot of stories out there, both fanfic and published, where characters enjoy sex despite themselves, and where a character who takes on a certain role or performs certain behaviors during sex is thought of as weaker or lesser. Sex and sex roles become imposed rather than sought out, and desire is passive, the result of things done to a character rather than things a character actively seeks out and wants.

Prompt #284



You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding.
