Okay. So this morning I shipped off packages for [livejournal.com profile] vval, [livejournal.com profile] super_robyn and [livejournal.com profile] did_it_once. When you get them, place let me know because I didn't send them with delivery confirmation this year because I didn't have enough money to do so.

I also shipped off all the international cards and letters I promised, so hopefully it won't take TOO long to get them to their destinations.

Now I need advil.

ONE

Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV"). The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) can get in touch with you. Your home address is not required!

Make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO

Surf around your friends list (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part...

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes one person's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use - or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free - do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf - to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call. There are no guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give and you might receive. You'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] magelette for her generous gift to me. Combined with some money my grandma gave me for Christmas, I am now only $675.17 away from paying off my Visa! Two more payments and I'm done! \O/

Merry Christmas, Everyone! Hope you all have a wonderful day! :D

All right, folks. Here's what's been requested from the family Jamie and I are adopting at the shelter where we work!

Wishes. )

So yeah. There ya go. If you want to do any of this stuff, please let me know, the sooner the better. That way there's plenty of time for shipping, and for Jamie and I to get everything wrapped and ready. Also, this family has NO Christmas decorations of any kind. They had to leave pretty much everything behind when they came into shelter, and they're afraid to go back to the house where the abuser is.

Again, you can also feel free to send checks (and you may even designate what gift(s) you'd like the money to go toward if you wish). But yeah. Here it is.
xtremeroswellia: (DV: It is your business)
So...my friend Jamie and I are going to adopt a family from our domestic violence shelter for Christmas. By adopt, I mean, buy them all gifts, and food and decorations, etc.

And as I was driving home, I got to thinking about this...and thought I'd throw it out there to anyone who might be interested.

Would any of you like to help?

Right now what I'm thinking is that I will compile a list of things that the family (which consists of the mother and three girls--ages six, eleven and fifteen) needs/wants and if anyone would like to help out, they could either send gifts to me which Jamie and I can wrap, etc, or send cash to help us pick some things out. I'm also open to other suggestions, because I really, really want for this family to have a wonderful Christmas for the first time ever.

Thoughts? Questions? Interest?

Poll!!

95 Days til Christmas.

Yes, I said it. The big C.

I'm going to try and do something different this year, something I've wanted to do for ages--focus on making the holiday better for those who don't have the advantages that I do.

So what I want/need from you all...is your ideas for Christmas community service ideas...there are some that everyone knows about (for example, Toys for Tots, the Angel Tree, etc). And while those are great, I'm looking for ideas that aren't necessarily well-known, as well. I'm hoping for a wide range of ideas, and hoping that since I'm planning so far in advance, I can hit several causes.

So...ideas? Thoughts?

\O/

I am officially ON VACATION PEOPLE.

Vacation.

I have not had an actual week's vacation from Dove since...well, ever!

But don't worry. I have plenty to keep me busy. I'm starting on Chris...uh, holiday presents. *hides from [livejournal.com profile] katelennon.* And I have reading to do, and Lea's going to come over and bring the kidlets to swim, and then Thursday I'm going to visit [livejournal.com profile] tim_80 which I'm really excited about, and THEN, Friday, I will be in the theaters seeing I Want to Believe.

Countdown!

Author’s Note I: Yeah I wrote this back at Christmas time and forgot about it and found it in a notebook last night. I dedicate it to Katie! Happy early birthday! J
Author’s Note II: A short ficlet/drabble of choice in a fandom I’m in for the first person to correctly guess the references to two other shows. :P One will be relatively easy, the second not so much :P

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] ellie06! Hope it's a wonderful day for you!! *hugs my BT*

Oh, and if you get your package I sent...you can go ahead and open it. There are two unwrapped things that are your birthday presents and one small wrapped package that says happy birthday which you can open which is wrapped in Christmas paper. :P The rest you have to wait on. *grins*

Other stuff--

Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] shansgrl for the card and the gift card to Bath and Body works! You're awesome!!

Wee!

Um, yeah. So I decided that my muse needs fed. So I'm stealing this idea from several of my flisters. Give me a prompt and some characters and I'll write a short little ficlet every day between now and Dec. 25th. In theory. :P These are the fandoms I'll write for:

Angel, Alias, Buffy, Lost, Roswell, Third Watch, X-Files, Joan of Arcadia, Supernatural, Smallville, Jericho, Sliders. Or any combination/crossover of those. Feel free to suggest more than one prompt/day in case I can't think of something for one. Oh yeah, and pick the day you want me to post each prompt.

And also? Because I suck and totally forgot to wish [livejournal.com profile] tyniere a happy birthday two days ago? I'm going to write three for her. For her late birthday present. Of her choosing. *gives puppy dog eyes* Forgive me?

Take it away, folks!
xtremeroswellia: (Me and Bozzie)
This has easily been one of the shittiest weeks of my life. Between Bosco and family crap and some other stuff...I've just had enough. I'm tired. And I'm frustrated.

So...

I'm going on hiatus from now until...*shrugs* whenever. But I will check my email so if you need me, email me at adwilliams03@gmail.com. If anyone wants to defriend me, please go ahead. I will not take offense.

Also? If you want a Christmas card, this is your last chance. Anyone who hasn't responded in about a week will be too late. I'm doing stuff early this year so I don't have to worry about it later. Comments are screened for those who want to leave their address.

Ciao.
