Hey! It's Zanthinegirl's birthday!

Today is the birthday of zanthinegirl, fangirl extraordinaire, hero to infirm babies, and my meme twin. (Srsly, we've had eerily similar scores on a number of the things. *raises eyebrow* And you should be ashamed of yourself, Mrs. Fred and George Weasley!) Speaking of shame, here's a little birthday trifle from someone who has none.

A Spaiku Intervention

Boxing up all the out-of-season crap in my closet (along with a gentle nudge from the Seraph-ic snickfic) reminded me that I've yet to bring home my Seasonal Spuffy contribution from the last round. Here it be!

A Spaiku Intervention
by mere_ubu
Genre: Haiku
Length: 949 words/1275 syllables
Rating: PG-13 for robotic naughtitude. Warnings for pitiless punning.
Pairing: Spike/Buffy
Disclaimer: Spike and Buffy belong to M.E. and never to me. *sniffle*
Summary: 75 Spuffycentric haiku caps from BtVS, S5, "Intervention." Sixteen parts.

A/N: Written for the Spring 2009 round of seasonal_spuffy. (Original post here.) The theme for this round was "Poetry." Le squee! High fives to enigmaticblues for organizing yet another amazing round, and mad props to Mister Beta for his invaluable input. Thanks as well to rebcake for continued encouragement and the always awesome always_jbj for the beautiful banner.
Feedback is more refreshing than iced mint tea on a mosquito-infested Arkansas evening.
Dedicated with love to herself_nyc and philips.

Felicitations on the Fourth! (Sort of . . .)

Happy Independence Day to my peeps in the US of A, and a Happy Saturday to all! I tried to get a little cooperation from doll!Spike to commemorate the holiday, but I foolishly packed him away with the prop bottle of Jack Daniels last time I, er, used him. I had a hell of time getting him to realize which holiday explode-a-ganza we were celebrating; first he thought it was Cinco de Mayo, and then he jumped ahead to Bastille Day!

omg mere wtf?

Thanks so much . . .

to the kind soul who nominated A Spaiku Intervention in the "Fluffy Spuffy" category over at The Spuffy Awards! Voting is open now, so swing by and show your support for the many wonderful writers who keep bringing the Spuffy and quite effectively prevent my ever getting much work done. (Must. Read. More. Fic. Now!)

I'm terribly behind in answering comments on some Spaiku and doll!fic posts, but please know that I treasure each and every one of them. I'm not usually this poky about drooling over your lovely feedback, but I've been out-of-the-loop with some health issues lately and hope to be much more with-it soon.

The rest of the Round 10 winners have been announced over at the Fang Fetish Awards, and you could have knocked me over with a feather when I opened my inbox this morning and discovered that Crushed Spaiku had snagged a Judge's Choice award. Between the prettiness of the pretty (customized by subject matter, no less!) and the judge's kind words, this really stands out as one of the better anti-Mondays I've received in recent memory.

Kudos and much gratitude to the Fang Fetish folks for your hard work, and congratulations to all the winners! I'm very much looking forward to reading more of the entries for this round.

In other award news, I went to pick up Zgirl from school Friday and could barely see the child for the large and wholly unexpected trophy she was hiding behind. The plaque at its base read: "School Chess Champion: 2007/2008/2009." It's been a good couple of days around here for the geeky girls. :)

Belated birthday greetings for Herself!

This past Sunday was the birthday of the hugely talented and much-beloved herself_nyc. Sadly, I was out of town and unable to make an appropriate offering on the day itself. However, upon returning home and pulling into the driveway, I found that someone had decided to take matters into his own tiny hands . . .

Hey, whaddya know?

Improbably enough, Crushed Spaiku snagged runner-up for Best Ficlet over at the Fang Fetish Awards. This is my first fic award, and I'm tickled to bits to be in such good company. Congrats to all the winners!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and that Monday treats you well. I've been in bed with the Cold That Would Not Die for a full week now but hope to venture forth from the land of chicken soup and popsicles very soon.
