Happy fanniversary to me!

Today marks the first anniversary of this journal. I found my way to LJ in the fall of ought-seven from Bugger This so that I could read herself_nyc's works in progress. I'd never planned on keeping a journal of my own until louise39, bless her heart, PM'd me to say that she enjoyed my comments and wanted to know if she could friend me and read my LJ. I confessed that I didn't have one but that I'd be tickled to have a first friend all the same. After some insomniac ruminating on the idea of a journal and what the hell I'd write in one, I came up with a few haiku, changed my lame-o lurking username to the one I use everywhere else, loaded up on icons over at earth_vexer's, and made my first post. Since then, I've posted 177 journal entries, 157 Spaiku, and 24 doll!fics. I've also made many new friends (and even met a few of them), gone to an academic conference on the Jossverse, chalked up a couple of nominations, been the subject of a slanderous fic, had the best birthday ever, bought a plane ticket to Writercon, and been added to the reading list of 85 people. In short, I've had nothing but fun here with you wonderful people since January 31 last rolled around.

As a little thank you to Louise for that life-changing nudge in the right direction and also to honor her suggestion that I put the Spaiku in some kind of searchable order, I've finally organized links to the Spaiku and doll!fic. *points to the left* See? No more squinting at tags. Also, I've announced in authoritative tones that I will be spending a couple of hours tomorrow with the haiku notebooks, so hopefully there will be more Spaiku here before too long.

Thanks for a great first year of fandom fabulosity, flist o' mine! \0/

I'm so glad you organized those links so I can go back and read the ones I've missed and then put the ones I have read in context with those!

Yay! It's taken me a while to figure out all this layout stuff, but hopefully this will make it a little easier for people to find stuff.
Jan. 31st, 2009 10:27 pm (UTC)
You're going to Writercon? Wheeeeeeeeee!

And Happy Anniversary!
Feb. 1st, 2009 05:35 pm (UTC)
Yep, and I hope to drag philips along with me. Woohoo!

Thank you, ma'am. :D

Happy fanniversary! Hmm, I might have a LJ anniversary coming up next month, though I suppose my fanniversary would be when I started posting fic?
Feb. 1st, 2009 05:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Well, it's your fanniversary, so you pretty much get to determine what you think constitutes one. *raises glass to LJ and liberty*
Jan. 31st, 2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
Happy Anniversary!! You've enriched my life and the 'verse with your humor, your Spaikus and the imaginative and naughty 'dollfics'.

Here's to you!! ::Raises a virtual glass of chanpagne.::

Thank you, dear! I'm so glad that you sent me that message last year. *hugs* I've had a blast.

::clinks glasses:: Vive le LJ!

Happy LJ-Versary! I'm so glad that you did find your way onto el jay- my online life is brighter and funnier for your presence here. <333
Feb. 1st, 2009 05:46 pm (UTC)
Thank you, sweetie pie! *smooch* I'm so glad that I de-lurked and found you.

P.S. Z. is having a sleepover, but there will be beaucoup de daisy squee later in the day. *lol* So fooftastic!

Happy, indeed! and thanks for mentioning Philips' little piece that I had not read before. Do I need to make a reservation for when I want to retire to the Home for Aging Fangirls?
Feb. 1st, 2009 05:50 pm (UTC)
Heh-heh. Philips is an evil comic genius.

Darling, we have a room waiting for you! We'll cackle and drink margaritas and pinch the bleached-blond male nurses.
Jan. 31st, 2009 10:55 pm (UTC)
Aw, happy fanniversary! I completely missed mine, but maybe I'll still be around for #2.

Also, I love that icon! Spike looks so wary of you! (and deservedly so!)
Feb. 1st, 2009 05:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Oh, I've no doubt you will see many fanniversaries, missy. You can be honorary mayor of LJ for a day. We'll have a parade. :D

shanmara offered to personalize some of her icons and was kind enough to put a question mark at the end of my username. I liked the idea of Spike being a leetle bit afraid of me. *lol* Now I want an angry-looking one with an exclamation point. MERE!

Happy fanniversary! So glad you found your way here; you brighten my day on a regular basis!
Feb. 1st, 2009 05:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks, honey! I'm so glad that I've gotten to know you better this year. And not even just because you have the best music and rescued me from Neil Sedaka. ;)
Jan. 31st, 2009 11:25 pm (UTC)
Happy Anniversary! :)
Feb. 1st, 2009 05:59 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Lynne! I'm glad I de-lurked. :D

Happy LJ-versary!

Thank you, Petzi! I'm happy to be here. :D

Only a year? It feels like you've been part of my online life so much longer - and I am so glad of that! Happy anniversary!
Feb. 1st, 2009 06:04 pm (UTC)
Thank you, dear! *hugs* I can't imagine what I did before LJ except make my coworkers nervous.
Feb. 1st, 2009 12:53 am (UTC)
Only a year? I've gotten so much enjoyment from your posts!

Herself is a real hub, isn't she? Hubba as well, of course.
Feb. 1st, 2009 06:09 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Caraway! I'm glad to hear it. *lol* And yes, HRH Herself is the sun around which my online existence revolves. I think she should probably look into a ruling a small country.
Feb. 1st, 2009 12:58 am (UTC)
Happy LJ-versary! You are simply a joy to have around. *throws confetti*
Feb. 1st, 2009 07:07 pm (UTC)
Aww, thank you kindly! *eats confetti* Mmm, confettilicous. ;)
Feb. 1st, 2009 01:08 am (UTC)
Oh, I am SO GLAD to be responsible for you being here! You have brought so much into my life! :: hugs ::
Feb. 1st, 2009 07:12 pm (UTC)
*smooches you* Thank you so much for luring me away from whatever the hell I did before this and encouraging me once I got here. I've had so much fun this year!

P.S. I hid from shrieky little girls this morning and ate Brent & Sam's cookies in my closet. I felt sure you would approve. ;)

Awww, I love the calypso-ku! *hugs it* Thank you, sweetie. *hugs you* I'm so glad I met you this year. Hopefully I'll find my way to Atlanta in the next one. Now that the mister and I each have a friend there, it seems much more likely. ;)
