Please Sponsor Epilepsy Toronto!

Wow! Three posts in one day after such a long dry spell!

So, on September 26th I will be participating in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront 5k Walk in order to raise funds for Epilepsy Toronto.

I'm appealing to the LJ community to please sponsor me and Epilepsy Toronto.  

I was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of seven and, thirteen years later, I still suffer from chronic nocturnal seizures.  On average, I have 3-5 seizures a night 4-5 nights of the week.  While my condition does not have much influence on my daily life, others in the epilepsy community are not so lucky.  Epilepsy Toronto is a great organization that helps people with epilepsy in many different ways.  ET organizes everything from group meetings for youth with epilepsy, parents with children who have epilepsy and art therapy to job support and training.  ET ensures that no one is fired or suffers discrimination at the workplace because of their condition.  Check out their website for more information.  http://www.epilepsytoronto.org/

You can help support me by making a secure online donation using your credit card. Click on the link below:

All pledges will receive an official tax receipt (either electronic or in the mail.)

Thanks for your help!

A Note to Detachment readers...

On a different note,
I will be creating a fic list sometime next week to organize my journal.  When I do make this post, I will also remove all Detachment chapters from my journal. 

Detachment was a story I started in highschool.  I'm now in third year of university and I really don't see the story getting finished any time soon.  It is possible that I will eventually go back to it but it will most likely be completely rewritten as just reading it makes me shudder!

Thanks to all my loyal readers, I'm sorry about the delay and the disappointment (if any of you are disappointed.  :p )

I will be posting this note on my ff.net account
(Marvin is my Muse) as well because I'll also be removing the story from there.

On  a brighter note, on of my best friends and I have been outlining a completely cracked-out, multi-fandom 'verse for over a year and we are determined to start writing it now that she has an LJ account.  Look forward to the crack!

It should be noted that it will take a while to get written. 

Thanks again everyone!

Facebook, Twitter, reposts.

I can't believe I'm actually having to write this but LJ has disappointed us all once again.

It has recently come to my attention that LJ posts (f-locked or public) can be cross-posted to facebook and twitter.

I'm sure I'm not the only person here who does not share their internet persona with family and friends.

I have blocked the re-post links on my journal but, just as a precaution, I'm stating here that NOTHING posted on this journal is to be re-posted on any kind of social networking site.

I'm sure most of you understand.

If anyone else would like to block the re-post option on their journal you can kind the instructions on how to do so below.

Thank you to
[info]ratherastory  for sharing this information!

LJ admin, shame on you.

-Marvin

Instruction on how to remove the re-post option...

To get rid of the twitter/facebook re-post links in your journal entry comments do the following:

1. Go to your "Journal" menu, and select "Journal Style"
2. To the right, you'll see what theme you're using, with a link stating "Customize Your Theme". Click that link.
3. Scroll down a little ways, and you'll see that on the left side of your screen, you have multiple options to modify your theme. Click on the "Custom CSS" link, and it should load the options for doing Custom CSS.
4. From here, all you have to do is go to the "Custom Stylesheet", and put in the line

.b-repost-item {display:none}

5. Save changes

Hey Everyone!

I just did this at [info]felisblanco's journal and I thought it would be cool to see where all my flist people live (especially you vetinarimithos and[info]mrsfrankenstien!



Also!  Just an update - Detachment has officially been put on hold although I will continue to try and finish it.  (I've rewritten the next chapter about five times - I can never seem to get it right!) But, hopefully soon to come is a new story!  After looking at pictures of Steve at Creation Con, my supernaturally-obsessed friend and I had a conversation in which we came up with a plot bunny for a Chris/Steve/Jensen fic!  It's actually flowing really well and quite quickly so hopefully it'll be up soon for you all to read and critique!
Love ya flisters!
See ya tomorrow vetinarimithos!

Fic: Once upon a time...


 Hey Everyone!

So, another fic!  Enjoy!


Title: Once upon a time….

Summary: Once upon a time there was a Dean, this is his story.

Notes:  So this exploded out of my head one day and, after fiddling with it I deemed it ready to be read!  Anyway, I think it’s one of the few things I’ve written with a happy ending so at least there’s that.  I have a crack fic in my head right now so hopefully it will be done soon. 

Also, lastly, to vetinarimithos, sometimes the chapter ends but it doesn’t have to end badly, hopefully I can give this chapter a happy ending.  Thanks for all your support. 

 

To mrsfrankenstien, you must be so confused – my apologies!

Ranting about snow and Steve Earle!

So!
I'm bored, pissed off and not where I'm supposed to be so I decided to post to my LJ!  Sorry in advance!
My mom decided that - since it's our last March break together, we should go somewhere.  Two years ago we fell in love with the beautiful island of St. Maarten so that's where we were headed.  So, we drove to Buffalo and were going to catch a flight out of here (Buffalo.)  Unfortunately because of the stupid snow we LEFT TO GET AWAY FROM! Our flight was canceled and we can't get one until Tuesday!  We've spent so long on the phone I'm ready to shoot the person who decided making pissed-off people listen to repetitive music was a good idea!  Anyway, so here I am in frikken Buffalo land of the snow and to vent my pissed-off-ness what do I do? I post to y'all!  So sorry!  On a bright note, I've written a fic and hope to post it by tonight.

Also!!!!!!!!!!! On Tuesday March 4th I went to see Steve Earle playing at Massey hall with my friend and OH MY GOD he's amazing!  All bow down to the awesomeness that is STEVE!  SQUEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Thanks for bearing with me!
