I've been reading a lot of Hawaii Five-O fic recently. Some of these are older, because they've been sitting in my "to read" folder for a while, but they were all thoroughly enjoyable!

H5O: Steve/Danny )

I love reading Steve/Danny, but a little Chin Ho in my fic wouldn't go amiss. I don't even care who he's paired with. Chin Ho is like the little black dress of the island -- he'd go great with anyone! The only problem? I can't find any Chin Ho fic!!!! *woe* So, if you know where the Chin Ho fic is hiding, please tell me! *begs prettily*

Now, back to the recs...

AI RPF: Kris/Adam )

Glam RPF: Adam/Tommy )

Glee: Kurt/Blaine )
Last night my mom and I stuck with tradition and went to a Christmas night movie. The only requirement for our Christmas movies is that they need to be happy-making, so we saw Tangled and it was indeed happy-making! So cute! But now I totes want to hear Darren Criss covering this song!!! )

Since this post is supposed to be about cheer, let me show you some of what's been bringing me all kinds of cheery thoughts the past few days. *g* Not surprisingly, this holiday cheer is really Darren Criss cheer! )


Speaking of holiday cheer, if you haven't yet please tell me what charity you would like for me to make a holiday donation to! (Yes, I'm going to keep bugging y'all about this until you do it! *beams*) This post and all the holiday charity giving has been incredibly happy-making. Thank y'all for bringing the holiday cheer with me! :D

You know what else has made me very happy? This stunning NOH8 photo of Tommy Joe Ratliff!!! )

Holy moly! Only 5 more days of 2010 left! Me, my mom, and The Nieces leave for Disneyland on Wednesday and that's where we'll be ringing in the New Year. I can't wait!!!

I've also been thinking about what word I'm going to pick for 2011. I have a few ideas, but haven't settled on my word yet. I love reading about others' experiences with their words though. My word in 2010 was PUSH, and I think it shaped my year in some interesting ways. It was definitely a year of pushing boundaries and exploring edges and walking into previously untrodden territory, some of it good and some of it less so. I'll definitely be unpacking that more as I think about my word for 2011. Has anyone else picked a word for 2011? Or does anyone have an experience to share about their 2010 word? I'd love to hear your stories! *chinhands*
OMG it's only Monday and this week is already completely CRAZYCAKES!!! Thankfully, it's mostly the good kinda crazycakes. (Although, if y'all can send some positive thoughts my way tomorrow around noon, I'd appreciate it. I'm having to deal with the ex-boss continuing to be an unmitigated jackass, so, you know, good juju would come in handy.)

Anyway, GOOD CRAZINESS!!! Let's talk about that some more! I've got a to do list that's about a mile long, and it all needs to be done in the next two days! Ahhhh!!! But just as soon as all those important items like "paint nails," "color hair," "buy lots of alcohol and chocolate snacks," and "OMG PACK FOR L.A." get crossed off my list, then it means that I'm finally on my way to L.A. for what is sure to be an AMAZING long weekend of DAMN GOOD TIMES!!! Eeeee!!! ADAM FUCKING LAMBERT!!!!! And DARREN CRISS!!!! And MONTE PITTMAN!!!!!!! And some of my most favorite people on the planet!!!!!! And glitter! And drinking! And doing fun L.A. touristy things! And laughing and talking and just having fabulously good times!!! Man, I cannot adequately state how much I need this trip right now. My mental health has been a tenuous thing lately, and I'm totally counting on just getting away, not stressing for a few days, and just having a damn good time in order to regain my grasp on my zen.

Like I said, SO MANY GOOD THINGS THIS WEEK! Like Adam! Who manages to wear the fuck out of a completely ridiculous pair of sparkly, zebra-striped pants. )

Also, I may not have mentioned this, oh, in the past 24 hours or so, but I'm completely smitten with one Darren Criss!!! *heart eyes* And I get to see him play this weekend! Twice! I may just die of the concentrated adorableness!!!

No, really, it may be too much presh for me to handle! )

So, since we're talking about faces that make me happy, I think it's been well established that Chris Colfer is all that is precious and adorable in this world and his face does, indeed, make me happy. BUT WAT IS THIS CRAZINESS??? )

There's also this picture of a nearly pantsless Tommy that Isaac tweeted this morning, but I just don't have words to talk about this right now. *g* Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves, though.

I've been reading tons of Kurt/Blaine fic. Like most new fandoms/pairings, there is quite a bit of dreck being posted. Thankfully, y'all have ME to wade through it all and bring you the good stuff! *beams*

Kurt/Blain fic recs )

Darren Criss sings Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas! (Awesome Holiday Song of the Day) )

Ok, now that we have so many good things to roll around in, I'm going to go wade through my insane To Do list, and flail a bit more about L.A. IN TWO DAYS!!!!!! *bounces*
The European leg of the Glam Nation tour has been an abundance of fabulosity, as previously documented here and here. And we all thought, surely there's no way to top this short of someone getting naked on stage! But then, while, sadly everyone has remained clothed, there was Amsterdam. And the bar for fabulosity was again moved higher. And by higher, I mean, quite literally, higher. *g*

But first, to give these images the proper loltastic context, Adam's Amsterdam show was in a venue that looked suspiciously like a re-purposed church. And, let me just say, this is totes my kinda religion!

Photobucket

And then, well, really, they were in Amsterdam after all...

Purple haze, motherfuckers! )

Seriously, is it any wonder I love this crazy son of a bitch so damn much? *g*
There have been some truly fantastic pictures and gifs lately of Adam, the shows, and the Glam Troupe as they leave a trail of glitter throughout Europe. So I thought I'd share them with y'all and that way I can finally close all the tabs I currently have open. Win/win!

fall into the glitter )
I'll never be able to write up full recs on everything that's currently sitting in my "Fics to Rec" folder. So I'm just going to post these and y'all can safely assume that I loved them all!

30 fics y'all should read because they're awesome! )
Seriously, whenever I start to think that Adam and company can't possibly blow my mind any more than they already have, they go and prove me wrong. So, last night (this morning? I don't know -- the time zone thing fucks with my head) they played a show in New Zealand. And as an early birthday present for his bassist, Tommy Joe, Adam covered one of Tommy's favorite songs for his encore, Metallica's "Enter Sandman." It was apparently a complete surprise to Tommy, who didn't know it was going to happen until they started playing it and the rest of the band had only practiced it once. Adam even had to tape the lyrics to the front of the stage. *laughs*

But OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Adam covering Metallica has made my LIFE!!!! *flails wildly*

Enter Sandman )

Apparently they were sound-checking "Closer" yesterday too. If they ever did both NIN and Metallica I may just die of the sheer awesomeness!

So, yeah, I think I'll be spending the rest of my Sunday re-watching that vid. Glam Metal FTMFW!!!!! \m/

fun friday!

Oct. 8th, 2010 02:59 pm
My very shallow Fun Friday Happy List:

1. Cassidy is making me feel highly patriotic today!


Now don't y'all feel like pledging allegiance now! *g*


2. Pretty boys kissing! This never gets old. And after months of this, Tommy actually 'WOW'-ed after this kiss! )


3. And, with thanks to [livejournal.com profile] azewewish for notifying my of the existence of such hotness, Tim Howard, hot, tattooed goalie for Team USA, naked: )

Fun Friday, indeed! *g*
I've been doing a lot of fic reading lately. I'm looking at this as one of the silver linings of unemployment! *g* Whatevs. My excess of free time, means more fic recs for you!

Enjoy, bbs! *mwah*

Lots of awesome stories involving lots of pretty boys doing lots of amazing and filthy things to each other! Good times! )

randomness

Aug. 11th, 2010 06:13 pm
Just in the last 24 hours I was reminded several times of how AMAZING my friends are, both in RL and online. They are wickedly smart, and incredibly generous, and amazingly talented, and fiercely authentic, and so inspiring, strong and courageous. And, just so we're clear, y'all are FABULOUS. *loves*

Ok, then. :)

Here, have some sparkly stuff:

:: An MP3 file of Adam's live cover of '20th Century Boy. I've had it stuck in my head on continuous loop for the past 20 hours! Not that I'm complaining or anything. *g*

:: A happy-making picture of Adam grinning like a fool at Tommy. Their FAAAAACES!!!

:: A truly amazing cover of KeSha's 'Take It Off' that is about two bazillion times better when Ke$sha is not involved! I had no idea I could love this song so much!

:: How 'bout some fic recs?!! )

goodreads

Aug. 6th, 2010 11:57 pm
I haven't had time to do this in so long that my "Fics to Rec" folder has grown to frightening levels. And some of these I read so long ago now that I feel bad about dropping random comments out of the sky for the authors. But if I don't start leaving feedback and clearing out that bookmark folder now, I'm never going to get it done. So, I'm just going to start posting these a handful at a time and maybe just dropping a few recs randomly into posts until I can get that folder back down to manageable levels.

Kris/Adam
Don't Look Back on Yesterday by [livejournal.com profile] rivers_bend
Kris/Adam | Teen | 2,100 words
Adam is actually capable of being friends with a guy without falling in love. Mostly. The emotions here are so gritty and real, and the author really does a great job with Adam's voice. It's heart-achy, but wonderful.

Come On, Get Higher by [livejournal.com profile] vanya_elda
Kris/Adam | R | 3,165
Kris's self discovery...through pot. Pot! Shotgunning! Philosophical discussions about cupcake sprinkles! This fic is just good times!

Hold by [livejournal.com profile] jerakeen
Kris/Adam | R | 2,400
“You can have the bottom bunk,” Lambert says, pushing Kris unceremoniously into the cell. Then he smirks. “I like the top.” Quite possibly the fluffiest, schmoopiest prison!fic ever! It's prison!fic, and yet it's delightful. *boggles*

Crash by [livejournal.com profile] itsmadeofgold
Kris/Adam | R | 1,659
Apparently this plane doesn't come with oxygen masks, but that's ok because it means they can kiss instead!

Pour Some Sugar On Me (in the Name of Love) by [livejournal.com profile] jerakeen
Kris/Adam | NC-17 | 9,250
Adam is a stripper. And Kris makes tea. Somehow this results in an absolutely delightful story.

A Cup of Kindness Yet by [livejournal.com profile] sporadic_fic
Kris/Adam | PG-13 | 5,811
Five New Year's Eves with Adam. I loved the progression of this fic. It manages to be both heartwrenching, and hopeful, and, in the end, delightful.


Adam/Tommy
Wanna see you strut by [livejournal.com profile] rivers_bend
Adam/Tommy | Adult | 550
If life were a masturbatory fantasy, the Finnish X-Factor performance might have ended something like this. So much HOT packed into 550 words! And, even with all that, it's the last part that I loved the most.

The Mr. Lambert Effect by [livejournal.com profile] sribblinlenore
Adam/Tommy | NC-17 | 33,000
A high school AU. Tommy is a bored senior counting down the days until freedom. Spring semester gets a lot more interesting when substitute teacher Mr. Lambert takes over in history class. So much to love about this! First, she deftly manages the student/teacher dynamic with authenticity and yet managing to any creepiness. And her Tommy voice is just perfection. Really, in every way that matters, this fic just works. Such a satisfying read!


Adam/Brad
Interview Techniques and How Not To Give An Interview by LittleMousling
Adam/Brad | Explicit | 11,598 and 10,388, respectively
Talking about exes is not a sparkle-positive behavior. It leads to sparkle diminution. There is simply not enough Adam/Brad in my life, and I can't even begin to express the fabulousness of this series of fics! The first is written from Adam's POV, the second from Brad's, and they are both wonderful!

Happy reading!

plus sides

Jun. 30th, 2010 10:12 pm
Today was rough, man. Way too little sleep, a ridiculously early morning in court, a deposition most of the afternoon, deadlines pressing in, clients being more difficult than normal, attorneys who think that rudeness and antagonism are the same as zealous advocacy, hard won resolutions unraveling at the last minute, and way too many fires to put out in one 12 hour work day. I'm wiped. And I'm SO ready for the long weekend.

Thankfully, Adam and Tommy have been a reliable happy place lately:

Photobucket

Yeah, if that doesn't just make your world a better place, I don't know what will. *g*

More of that kinda happy. )

I came home and managed to stay awake for So You Think You Can Dance. And I'm very glad I did, otherwise I would have missed Alex Wong dancing the hell outa that incredible hip hop routine with Twitch! Where the hell did that come from??? Ah-may-zing!

The boys are so good this season, I'm having a hard time picking a favorite. Jose and Kent are ADORABLE! I want to bring them home and pet them and feed them cookies and just be dazzled by their smiles! And Billy Bell is just SO crazy good. Alex blew me away tonight. And even Robert, who I didn't like so much in the beginning, is starting to charm me.

And I realized tonight that a definite plus side to the girls being so MEH this year and getting booted sooner is that they will have to pair the male contestants with male all-stars more often, and, hopefully, come up with some truly brilliantly creative (and HOT, let's definitely bring the hot!) all male partnered dance routines. Um, yes, please! *g*

So, basically the pretty boys saved the day. What's new? *laughs*
This aptly summarizes just how freakin' hot it's been around here this week. (Link and laughs courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] without_me.) It also cracks me up. Probably because I'm currently sitting in my air conditioned office. As soon as I need to go outside, "featherless and golden brown and delicious" will cease to be amusing. Because NOTHING is amusing when it's approximately 10 degrees hotter than the ambient temperature of HELL. *melts. grumpily*

Speaking of NOT amusing: my laptop is still in ICU, which is, well no fun at all. My Computer Guy hasn't pronounced it dead yet, so I suppose there's still hope, but I'm getting really damn tired of not having my computer. *grumps some more*

But I do have some fic recs for y'all, which IS fun! *g*

White Collar
Time is of the Essence by [livejournal.com profile] mistresscurvy
Neal/Elizabeth/Peter || NC-17 || ~4,000 words
Established D/s relationship. Neal is late. Peter is not pleased. Elizabeth just wants to get on with it.
She absolutely nails the characterizations, and, dear heavens, people, this is just smoldering hot!

Adam Lambert
Practice Makes Perfect and Hard But Not Complicated by [livejournal.com profile] rivers_bend
Adam/Tommy || Teen & NC-17, respectively
Tour Fic: Adam and Tommy "practice" their stage-gay.

To Be Adorned by [livejournal.com profile] bexless
Adam/Brad || NC-17 || ~ 3,500 words
Adam recently got his nipples pierced. No really he did and I'm not even going to apologize for knowing that. Owning my shame, here, people. *g* Anyway, Adam. Nipples. Pierced. Add Brad and you know the result will be ridiculously hot, right?

Happy Friday!!!
Today's happiness, let me tell you about it! *g*

First, last night there was this:

Photobucket

Thank you, boys, for the epic degrees of fanservice you are dishing up on this tour. Please feel free to lick each other any time the mood strikes. *g*


And then there are the plans for N'awlins shenanigans in September that are underway! I managed to put all my lawyerly skills to bear and persuade [livejournal.com profile] azewewish to join me and [livejournal.com profile] coolwhipdiva for said shenanigans. Or, you know, NOT REALLY. Because, really, she did not put up much resistance. *g* But, OMG, New Orleans, and Adam, and Adam and Tommy licking each others' faces, and Saints football, and Jeremy Shockey's abs and ink, and beignets, and ME AND MY GIRLS RAISING HELL IN N'AWLINS!!!!! I might be a little bit excited about this. *g*


And then there's all the World Cup related excitement. I, sadly, missed this mornings amazing U.S. win because I had to be in court. Nevertheless, GO USA!!! I hope those boys are celebrating properly, which, you know, should include lots of post-game adrenaline fueled sex. *g*

ETA:
Photobucket

More awesome picspam of pretty boys celebrating (sadly NOT with hot, post-game adrenaline fueled sex) HERE. (Link courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] mistresscurvy.)


But the HAPPIEST part of today involves one adorable and ridiculously hot POCKET IDOL!!! KRIS!!!!!! Tonight! I'll be skipping out of work early to drive down to Tucson with [livejournal.com profile] llandaffaz and [livejournal.com profile] zoniduck. We plan on getting lost on the way to the Rialto (dear gods, I've never managed to make it there without getting lost and then accidentally finding it!), and then we plan on stalking accidentally running into Kris and the band (what? it totally could happen by coincidence! *g*), and then we plan on ROCKING OUR FACES OFF at the show!!! Good times, people, this is sure to be damn good times.
Photobucket


So here's some of what I've been doing with all this daylight:

1. Being ridiculously entertained by Ninja!Chris: )
He is freakin' ADORABLE!!!


2. Also being all kinds of impressed with Matthew Morrison's soccer skilz! )

3. Enjoying the pretty boys hugging!!!

Photobucket

I'm not posting the gifs from last week's concerts because they fuck up my page, but let me just say that the fanservice in this fandom is EPIC! Thank you, Adam and Tommy, for your touchy-feely awesomeness!!!


4. Being a little annoyed that I missed the Leverage season premier last night. My DVR was only set up to record one hour, so I missed the first half. Does anyone know when/if they'll be re-airing it?


5. Looking forward to tonight's D'backs/Yankees baseball game!!!


What are y'all doing with the longest day of the year?
:: Watermelon for lunch! Summer in a bowl!!!

:: Screening of La Mission later tonight with a Q&A after with the Bratt brothers!

:: Tickets to see In The Heights next weekend! With Lin-Manuel Miranda joining the tour in Tempe!!!

:: Adam in Phoenix on August 1st!!! *flails wildly* (Or so the Tour T-shirt of Unconfirmed Knowledge says.)

:: THIS!!! *loves and loves*
Man, it's gorgeous outside. I wish I could drag my stacks of files outside to enjoy the sunshine. I should take advantage of the beautiful weather while it lasts, because it won't be long now before I'm complaining about Arizona's hellish summer heat. Sadly I'm stuck in my office looking at the lovely day happening outside my window.

But even though I can't play in it, the sunshiney awesomeness happening outside has me in a great mood! Or maybe that's the coffee I had this morning in an otherwise coffee-less couple of weeks? In any event, I AM HAPPY! And, because I'm awesome like that, I'm gonna share my happy mood with y'all. *beams*

Happy Thing The First: Strawberries! Yummy ripe strawberries! I've got a whole little basket full of them to munch on throughout the day and they taste like the sunshine outside my window. Delish!


Happy Thing The Second: Shoes! Shiny new shoes! I just got these and I love them! I also got two other pairs for work that are quite lovely. But, OMG, I love that first pair so much!


Happy Thing The Third: Baseball! Well, specifically, Chris Snyder!!! I'm not talking to my D'backs until they crawl their way back over .500, but my bb Chris is another story. He's smokin' hot with his bat right now (3-run HR yesterday!) and I'm so incredibly proud of him. And, seriously, if they start talking about trading him again, I will NOT be responsible for my actions. But we're talking happy, so, CHRIS!!! *loves*


Happy Thing The Fourth: Awesome music happenings! While I'm still more than a little frustrated that they haven't announced Adam's full tour schedule, tickets for his second OC show go on pre-sale tomorrow. And more Adam is always a good thing! Also, in case anyone missed the memo, Adam is cute. Just ask Rhyan who crawled next to me last night and demanded to watch Adam videos and then informed me that "A-lam is cute!" *g* Even though she's just two, she certainly knows her cute.

A-lam IS cute! )

Yup, definitely cute. Or, you know, FUCKING GORGEOUS! But if the two year old comes out with "A-lam is fucking gorgeous!" her parents may not be happy with me. So, we'll just stick with "A-lam is cute." *g*

Speaking of the pretty, dear gods, Adam's bassist Tommy is ridiculously pretty! )

The happy-making musical happenings continue: I also scored tickets to see Kris Allen when he opens for Barenaked Ladies here in July! Pocket Idol!!! I'm kind of ridiculously excited about finally getting to see him perform live!

And since they added a second Glee Live show, I was able to get tickets for me and my mom as her Mothers' Day present. GLEE!!! So very happy-making!

And more! [livejournal.com profile] without_me was able to score tickets for us to see The Wall in November! Yay!

*breathes* OMG so much awesome music in my future!!!

And if all that wasn't enough musical awesomeness, today Trent Reznor announced the release of a new song with his new band How To Destroy Angels and it's hauntingly beautiful! I didn't even realize he was making new music, but apparently he is, and it's amazing!

ETA: More How To Destroy Angels! )


Happy Thing The Fifth: ME!!! *beams* I'm gonna brag on myself for a moment. Because I can. *g* And also because these are definitely part of the happy. First, my online food journal informed me today that I've logged on for 65 days in a row. That means that for the past 65 days I've been eating mindfully. For the past 65 days I've made conscious, deliberate decisions about what to feed my body; for the most part those have been healthy choices, but even when they haven't been, I've been aware of them and accountable for them. That right there is success! Second, I don't think I've mentioned this here, but last Friday I had my one year review. Holy cow, it's been a year! But, more importantly, it's been a damn good year! My review was positively glowing and came with a very nice raise and plans for long-term success and reward here. Job satisfaction is definitely happy-making!
