Sonoma County CA separates elderly gay couple and sells their home

Someone in comments pointed out how fucking convenient it was for the hospital/county to call them "roommates" for the purposes of visitation, etc. but then when they decided to auction off belongings every single thing BOTH guys owned was sold.

This entire situation makes me want to punch somebody's face off.

DW mini tutorial

Some people have been having some difficulty with OpenID and comment notifications. The most common reason for this is forgetting to 'set' and 'confirm' the email address where notifications are to be sent.

I know some people grumble about having to jump through hoops in order to comment on another site, etc. but it really is very simple. And once it's done you don't have to mess with it again. I've been commenting on LJ via OpenID for months (even though I have an account there), and I don't even notice the difference.

I decided to make an OpenID for DW using my old LJ account, landshark1129.

Title: When my Boy Walks Down the Street, Part 1/?
Pairing: Sam/Dean (established)
Length: ~ 1,900
Summary: ”Dean! What did you do?”

They were sitting on the old swings—the ones nobody used anymore and pinched your hands when you twisted the chains around. All the other kids were across the field waiting to go down the big slide that smelled like gasoline and made your hair stick up.

“I was board and thinking about my baby,” Dean leered. Sam got the same hot, squirmy feeling he got when Dean climbed on top of him. “So I wrote 'Dean + Sam' on my desk and drew a heart around it.”

Sam just beamed at his brother, and Dean twisted their chains tighter.

Notes: Written in response to this prompt. I didn't really get into all the kinky parts--but I plan on writing some more of this in the near future.
Beta: None. This is a commentfic that got away from me.

Part OneCollapse )

Photo/Video: Jensen's House

This is the inspiration for Jensen's house. I fudged a few things (this house was built 13 years later, doesn't have a library, and sits on a small lot downtown), but otherwise it's pretty close.  I know the owners and have been there several times. They've turned it into a really cute Bed & Breakfast  (they live on the third floor, and guests get full access to the 1st and 2nd floors and the garden).

ETA: There's also a video tour, if you're into that kind of thing.

Photo and hopefully a working video under the cutCollapse )
So, I had a job interview today.

I responded to this Craigslist ad:

I'm a busy female executive in desperate need of someone that can assist me with various tasks: keeping my schedule, phone calls, scheduling travel, organizing bills and mail, occasional grocery shopping, returns to stores, sometimes taking my dogs to the park, possibly housesitting, etc. Hours are PT and flexible and will average about 10-15 hrs per week. Attention to detail, trustworthiness and enthusiasm is a must! Please respond with a resume OR an email telling me about you, what your goals are and why you would be a good fit for the position.

I figured, why not? I never usually mess with Craigslist because of the creepy factor, but I'm running out of money so I'm willing to take the chance. Turns out she's a private investigator. Who owns her own agency with offices in town and in L.A.  And she is really cool and has two pugs and a lab for me to play with. And I would get to do some work in her office doing background checks and stuff.

I've never had such a cool job within my grasp--and I think I rocked that job interview (we mostly just bonded over our love for dogs and our hatred for L.A.), so hopefully somebody doesn't interview within the next few days who is way more awesome than me.

I should find out for sure by Friday, so send me good vibes or whatever!

Bedroom on a budget.

After many years of living out of plastic tubs and owning a few pieces of modern particle-board furniture and movie posters, I've decided to finally put some time and energy into designing the room I've always wanted. My original pick for a theme was Steampunk, but I've been finding that my tastes run a little more traditional (and I can't find ANYTHING with exposed gears...), so I'm calling my own style Neo Victorian Laboratory. My plan is to get as much as I can from thrift stores, older relatives, yard sales, etc. I refuse to buy anything new unless I can get it on sale.

So far I've only bought 3 things new (2 solid wood stackable folding bookcases, and a brass apothecary lamp from Fred Meyer, all for $100 [original price $150]). I've been able to find another 40 accessories from local thrift shops including: a bunch of laboratory glass, random cool-looking bottles, antique brass and silver pieces, some leather stuff, glass telephone pole caps, old-timey wall thermometer, a faux old-timey clock (saw the same exact one at Fred Meyer for $40, I paid $5), and my best find: an antique solid wood and glass coffee table that was a steal at $36--but I happen to buy it on 'All furniture is 50% off' day for a sweet $18! I'm keeping a running total of everything I spend on this, so far I'm at $200, which is pretty good.

I took a few inventory-type photos of all my purchases so far:several photos insideCollapse )

I still have a lot of old crap to get rid of, and I have and old dresser waiting in the garage so this is very much still under construction.
