In Need Of Help with HTML

**turns on the pleading kitty eyes**

Hello, out there. Once again, I'm looking for someone to help with the coding in my journal, simply_beloved. For years, the journal was properly coded, and when links were clicked for chapters, they showed proper formatting. Then one day, out of the blue, every single chapter was centered. I checked and rechecked, making sure I had my opening and closing tags in the right place, but no matter what I did, the damned text remained centered.

At least for me it's showing up that way. I would appreciate any number of you guys checking in to see how the formatting appears to you. And some kind of explanation as to why it's all screwy for me.

And if someone is kind enough to be able to help me fix the situation, I would be most grateful. I am gearing up to work on this long, long, long overdue epic, and would love to have the proper showcase for it all ready to view.

I appreciate any and all assistance.

Hoping to hear from y'all in the near future. Thanks so much in advance.


Desperately Seeking Beta

I know, I know. I'm totally beating an almost dead horse here, but... there's hope for
the old boy yet. I swore that I would eventually finish the story of William Matthew
Jamison Dowell, and I intend to keep that promise.

I need someone to reread what's been posted, to help me find characters who've been
neglected; who should be part of the closing narrative. I have at least one chapter written
that needs to be checked for tone.

Most importantly, I would love for someone to bounce ideas off of; to help me push forward.
There are probably less than a handful of chapters left to go. I can see the light at the
end of the tunnel... it's just that I feel like my legs have been cut off.

So this is a cry for help. Hopefully there is a wonderful soul out there who is as anxious
for the completion of Beloved as I am, and who's willing to work with a neurotic, procrastinating,
insecure author writer.

**whew** Didn't chicken out on posting this, as I have done for many months now. I've been here,
reading y'all's posts, just being abnormally silent.

Is This For Real???

Help, please. On Tumblr (yes, that bastion of all things true), folks have posted about some extras listed on Once Upon a Time's season 5 offering. The following text piqued my interest:

TALES FROM THE UNDERWORLD: A KNIGHT WITH CRUELLA – Set in the Underworld and featuring Cruella and an all-new ONCE character portrayed by a special, surprise actor (James Marsters). Cruella has been left behind in the Underworld at the end of the season, and we didn’t exactly learn her fate… until now.

Has anyone heard of this? Has anyone seen it? if it's true, can someone point me to an upload?

I'm fairly sure I'll be disappointed, but on the odd chance it's true, I had to ask.

P.S. I am a real person peeking out from under my rock, not a spambot. **grins**

It's that time of year again!

Even though my posting presence on LJ had dwindled to almost nothing, I have to wish my sweetie bear, just_sue, the happiest of birthdays. Love you, girl, and hope life is working ever in your favor. **smooches**


It is Spring, finally, despite what the temperatures have been showing us, and that means a new look for my positively too quiet LJ. I've got the background I want in place, along with a new banner (thanks to liliaeth) in place. I'm just not skilled enough to finagle with it to make it 'just so'. I also need to change the font color for headers, etc.

Help me, Obi Wan Friendobies. Email me at spikes_heart@yahoo.com if you're willing to spare a few moments to work with me, or do it for me (I ain't too proud to beg).

Muchas, muchas thanks in advance.

Can We Rest, Now?

On Friday, June 20th, the sweetest, warmest, most tender-hearted young woman I know lost her battle with ovarian cancer. This fucking disease cut short her life at the age of thirty-four. She leaves behind grieving parents, siblings, god-children, and scores of friends.

We'll miss you Nicole. You'll always be in our hearts.

Gone too soon, rest in peace, sweetheart.

AAARGH! The Dreaded Gym Class Earworm!!

There's a commercial out currently for the Apple iPhone 5s that gives me chills every time the music track kicks in. Being the kind, generous person that I am, I humbly offer to share the buggering earworm with you:

I hated gym class with the passion of a million fiery suns (not to mention the one piece gymsuits that had to be ironed or they marked you unprepared). Just hearing this song made me break out in sweat and hives. It was torture - using the voice of the man I adored as Professor Harold Hill to show just how clumsy and uncoordinated I was. Gym class, meet Clockwork Orange.

Thank goodness I can watch the musical but Go You Chicken Fat, Go still makes me that little bit nauseous. **shudders** Any fellow sympathizers out there who suffered as I did?

A Surprise Bit of Happiness for a Change

My elder son, the one I live with, sent me a little prezzie from Amazon.com today. "Because it's Tuesday," he said.

I happily add it (All ten movies) to the shelf to sit next to the Buffy set, and Beauty and the Beast set he's also bought for me, and the Angel set I bought for myself. I do believe I have a re-watch coming up soon.

Ah, my first fandom, my first character crush (Spock, of course) and my first slash OTP (Kirk/Spock).

It's nice to post something pleasant. I hope this trend continues. *smiles*

Hugs, Hugs, Hugs!

Thank you so much, oh anonymous sweetheart for my wonderful, much needed hug. You have no idea how much that means to me right now. **smooches**
I have the official title of the world's worst chronicle keeper ever! Best to try and get this out before the year ends.

Today, I'm planning to spend time with family. A bunch of hours with the grandchildren are good for the soul, I always say. Even if I don't keep in touch as much as I want to, I'm always thinking of my LJ friends/family and checking out all you better posters daily.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas, or just some cool family time. Peace, loves.

Today's the Day

I'm off to have that biopsy today... with luck, I'll be back this evening with a small state of the me post. Wish me luck!

No Time Like the Present

... Especially since nobody is guaranteed a future.

Anyway, sorry I've fallen off the map since my lovely diagnosis. I didn't mean to, but...

And that's the way it is as of today.

My Life or Something Like It

If you want to know what's going on with me these days, feel free to check under the cut. It's not good, folks.

Sunday Post Reminder

Well folks, we’ve reached the halfway point in our first Sunday Post challenge – two weeks left for the prompt “Tenth Anniversary.”

We’d like to thank everyone who’s participated so far, and would like to encourage you to post something else in August.

More importantly, we’d like to hear what you have to offer in the way of prompts for September’s challenge, or you’ll be stuck with whatever just_sue and I come up with.

As of now, you still have to join the comm to view and post.

Spuffy_Haven's Sunday Post

Well, I've posted the initial offering to spuffy_haven's The Sunday Post challenge. You have to join the community in order to read it. Hopefully I won't be the sole poster. Eventually, I'll re-post it here, on my own LJ, and on my Ao3 account.

Go join, read, and post your own pretty, be it artwork or fic. We need our Spuffy lovers to stand united. Make some noise - hope to see you there.

Oh Thank Goodness!

Welcome back Derek Jeter, and welcome home Alphonso Soriano. We needed this win, but we needed your presence more. **Massive Yankees Hugs**

Spuffy Haven News

Hey you guys! I want to bring your attention to what is hopefully the revitalizing of spuffy_haven. just_sue and I are opening a new little challenge:

Kicking off with a few prompts for the tenth anniversary of Buffy's telly finale:

We feel there can never be enough Spuffy in the world, either fic or artwork, and we'd love for you to share with us.

Posting dates begin on the 4th, the first Sunday in August, and continue for the entire month (on Sundays).

Oh, and if it helps motivate you... every time a new Spuffy fic or piece of artwork is posted, a teensy kitten is saved. (I couldn't go with an orphan child... that would have been too much. *snickers*)

**whacks scatterbrain** Did I mention you need to join the comm? No? You need to join the comm. You join, we'll accept, and lots of fun can be had by all. (sheesh)

Many Thanks

Just wanted to thank you all for being my anchor yesterday. You guys kept me from drifting away in a sea of despair.

No more comments necessary, just ***HUGS*** to you.

Am I Really Here? Do I Exist?

Cut for personal pity partyCollapse )

I need some contact here, you guys. Please stop in and say hello, or share something uplifting. Make me see there's still good in the damned world? Let me know you can see me?
