Is it really September? Wow. Where the hell has my life gone? Nine months have just slipped by and I'm not sure where they went or how I feel about it. *sigh*

So, my own personal challenge for the month is to post something here every day. Whether it's ramblings, fiction, fic ramblings, rants, whatever. I'll just sorta apologize now for the daily (hopefully) spamming of the flist. *huggles ya'll*

First, over at TtH there's this particular person that leaves ridiculously long reviews telling the author how atrocious their grammar is and that readers are clearly fleeing from their fanfic because of the awfulness of the grammar. If that was honestly true, if the grammar was enough to make readers flee, then it would be quarantined. The end. Obviously the grammar isn't as horrible as she thinks it is. I just...if you have to write 'I'm not a moderator' in your private review then perhaps you should reconsider your boilerplate review so people wouldn't assume such things. Just saying, you know?

I've been a recluse wench for the last nine months. I know that. I'm sorry. I just...I took this new job because the boating industry sucked and I was afraid that I would lose my job sometime this year and not be able to find another one. It's tough for me because there isn't a day that goes by that I don't wish I was sitting in my old office rather than a stupid, stuffy, dull gray cube. Cubes suck. They suck a lot. Ugh.

Good news, I'm housesitting near my old job so I'm going to work tomorrow night, Friday night, and Saturday helping out Robin (my old boss). Yay for extra money and double yay for seeing Robin and working with her. It's little things like this that brighten my mood and here's hoping the boating industry turns around...cause did I mention I hate my stupid gray cube?

Scary news. One of my best friends, whom I've know since I was three, has Cystic Fibrois. And she's 27, almost 28, which is great for someone with CF, but... Her lungs have gotten to the point where they aren't functioning like she needs them too and her treatment for her lungs is started to do harm to other organs...and they've put her on the transplant list. *bites nails* This is one of those catch-22s for me. On one hand it's gonna be great when she gets new lungs, no infections, easier breathing, a longer life, etc. On the other hand - scary lung transplant! Eeep! I'm sure F will be the content of some of these posts over the next month(s).

The five of us girls (friends since at least high school) are getting together on Saturday night to have a girls' night. Cause it'll probably be the last time we can all get together and hang out before F's lung transplant. According to Hopkins they expect her to receive new lungs sometime in the next three months or less. Again with the eeep! I'm looking forward to it though.

Posted my Sweet Charity fic a few weeks ago. I never did hear back from the person I wrote it who knows what she thought about it. And it really didn't get the response I was hoping for BUT it did manage to get nominated for The Devil You Know (best crossover) award over at [ profile] wicked_awards. *bounces* That's freaking awesome!!

Last night I wrote more in that verse, where Faith meets Ellen. I like what I've got laid out in my head. Hopefully it translates well to paper.

And one of these days I will write Buffy/Sam porn for the lovely [ profile] day, I promise!

And yeah, here endth the rambling...
I know at least some of my flist fully engrosses themselves in the Supernatural fandom, so this is important to those.

Apparently the two girls that run Support Supernatural are doing a "charity donation" on behalf of Jensen Ackles. The charity that they decided to pledge their donations to is Young Life. That would be fine and dandy if they could actually prove that Jensen supports Young Life. And two, if Young Life didn't have an openly anti-gay stance.

I absolutely do not support this decision by SupportSupernatural.

If they truly wanted to do a donation on Jensen's behalf then they would contact his management and get an officially recognized charity.

But they did not.

Since the girls aren't willing to contact Jensen's management in regards to an official charity then I believe Jensen's management should be contacted in regards to this. Unless Jensen fully supports this charity, and does so publicly, then his name should not be linked to the advertising for the donations or the donation itself.

To read a well put together account and more details, please go read the post by [ profile] missyjack Here.

I fully support fandom making incredible donations to different charities. But I do not support making donations to questionable charities on an actor/actress's behalf without their official approval.

Fuck man, some people just royally piss me off.

Edit: I emailed this to the site owners:
It was brought to my attention by a LiveJournal member that your site is raising donations for YoungLife on behalf of Jensen Ackles.

Did you contact Jensen's management team to find out if he supports YoungLife? If you are going to have a charitiable donation drive with Jensen's name associated then the charity should be one that Jensen officially supports. To do otherwise falsely leads people to believe that Jensen supports the charity and that he is okay with being associated with the charity. Again, I feel the need to ask whether you contacted Jensen's management company to find out if he supports YoungLife.

I do not plan on making any donations to your drive. I personally don't support YoungLife. And I don't approve of the method that you have chosen to get donations for their organizaiton.

And this is what I received in response from Heather:
Working on getting more information.
Stay tuned.

WTF? I shouldn't be surprised, considering the shitty responses they gave to MissyJack. But still it makes me want to hit them.

And this is what I received in response from Lindsay:

We hear you loud and clear and we're looking into it immediately! :) Stay tuned for further information today. We had no intention of offending anyone.


This is a slightly better response. But it seems like it took a lot of pissed off people emailing them to actually get this response. Because the response given early on was nothing like this. Grrr.
