Some especial thank yous:
When I told her all I wanted for my birthday was a hug, pandionpandeus sent me this wonderful cuddle buddy. I have decided to take drvsilla's suggestion and name him "Candygram," but call him "Sweets" for short. :D
zubeneschamali wrote me Sam/Jensen fic which makes her not only the greatest human to ever but also possibly even better than most sharks.
wendy was the first to send me birthday greetings with the lovely profile cupcake, tebtosca sent me THE BEST LITTLE PROFILE CTHULHU I DIE, and ash48 and de_nugis also put pretty pretty v-gifts on my profile. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH.
Thank yous to blythechild, cackling_madly, and write_light for the lovely birthday posts! And to marciaelena, cappy712, kros_21, lyryk, lightthesparks, and enablelove for sending me really sweet LJ messages that I swear I will get around to replying to, but just know I read them and they made me smile. I've already thanked everyone who sent love on Twitter and Facebook (I think...if not, I swear I did not not reply on purpose and I LOVE YOU), but another round of thanks to those people as well. :D
My birthday has been very calm. It's one of those kind of arbitrary ages (still old enough to drink, still not old enough to rent a car) that are hard to care too much about, lol. My family is having a dinner on Sunday, but wincon is next week (GOD I AM FUCKING DYING OF EXCITEMENT FOR THIS YEAR) so this weekend will mostly be spent doing homework and work so I don't get too far behind in Vegas. :/ So today I...*drum roll* got a haircut and treated myself to McDonald's! #mythrillinglife I really like the haircut, though. :DDD
Although there is less than an hour left in my birthday, I did want to bring something to y'alls attention while people still feel obligated to be nice to me because it's my birthday. As any of you who have been around on my journal for more than a year will remember, every year I do the D.C. AIDS Walk. This year will probably be my last year in D.C. (assuming I am employable in other cities...), so I am trying to hit an all-time personal record and raise $500. I registered last Friday and I AM ALREADY HALFWAY TO MY GOAL!! :D But that doesn't mean I'm not going to be a huge pain in everyone's ass until I reach $500, so here is my first shameless plug: IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE ME HAPPY ON MY BIRTHDAY AND CAN SPARE ANY MONEY AT ALL, I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY SUPPORT. Whitman Walker is a really incredible resource to the D.C. LGBT community, as well as to the unfortunately huge population of adults in D.C. living with AIDS in neighborhoods that are generally too poor to provide adequate support. They did a lot for my family and continue to do a lot for families like mine, so this really means a lot to me--seriously anything at all, no matter how small, that you can spare will go to a great cause. And thank you from the very bottom of my heart to those of you who have already so generously donated.
If you can't spare any money, I did also recently write this salt_burn_porn wot you can read and lie to me and say nice things about. :P

It's not much, I know, but I've been really having a brutal time writing lately--and every time I think I'm regaining my confidence/momentum, something goes wrong (lol, like the time my fucking COMPUTER DIED ON ME). So! This is the first thing I have finished since JUNE, and it just felt really good to finally get through something again, even if it's just 4.5K of pr0n. Onward I march, hopefully, to finish my robotbigbang before blythechild chokes me with my own tentacles and maybe try to squeeze out an increasingly unlikely polybigbang draft.
ANYWAY. I REALLY LOVE YOU, FLIST. PLEASE DON'T THINK MY OCCASIONALLY DISAPPEARING ON YOU MEANS THIS IS NOT THE CASE. Thanks for being perfect and shit. ♥
