Post your favorite QAF quote to your LJ and tag 3 other people! Which if you think about it really is a near impossible task. But here's a memorable one for me and a pic to match it.



"So in other words, for Justin to live here with you, he has to deny who he is... what he thinks... and how he feels. Well, that's not love. That's hate."

Hi..........

  • Sep. 13th, 2008 at 11:44 PM



Long time.....no speak. )

Edit......a special thank you to [info]doppelgangerqaf and [info]vlredreign for the virtual gifts. My FIRST since I've come back. I am so happy tonight.

A short but Necessary Hiatus

  • Mar. 22nd, 2008 at 5:22 AM

My lovely and wonderful flist,

I need to take a short hiatus from live journal. I'm sure a few have already noticed that I haven't been online much at all in recent weeks. My beloved Mama suffered a mild stroke. (She came home from hospital this evening so this holiday week end is especially a joyous one for us.) Cillian and I have made the decision that in order to give her the best care we can, I need to take a short LOA from my job as well. She is going to recover from this I am sure.

Once I have a routine down with her, then I'm hopeful to be able to make time for the fandom which I love so dearly. I'm looking to be back on and off within a week.

I am going to disable comments for this post. I hope you understand why. It's just that I'm so behind from my previous post which I haven't responded yet plus I just need to catch my breath here. I'm am fine. I want everyone to know that. I'm also NOT going anywhere. It's just that it's my turn to take care of a woman who has all of my life taken such sweet and loving care of me.

So take care of each other. Please don't give up on me or defriend me. I'll be back with lots of pretty picspams I promise. Plus [info]bitchesofbritin have lots of ideas and plans to do our part to help make our fandom the fun and stimulating place it is once I come back.

Callie

P.S. In regards to my previous picspams which a few asked if they could use the pics for graphics or icons. Of course you may. Anyone is welcome to use them. I always wish to share.

Hello flist. I don't really have anything newsy to share. Just that life keeps rolling along. I'm happy and healthy. And my love for Queer as Folk never seems to waver. LOL...

To celebrate that...I offer a very short picspam that features Brian, Justin and pot/cigarette.(you take your pick);P

Not while I have you to protect me. )

thank you's, pimping, and holiday

  • Feb. 17th, 2008 at 4:13 AM

First....let me say thank you to all the lovely valentine wishes that I received from [info]severina2001 Valentine Fandom Post. I truly was touched. I also wish to thank [info]firehead30, [info]dopplganger44, and [info]galesweetie each for the virtual gift they sent me. I get such a kick out of receiving those. and [info]happier_bunny for the ecard she sent me. I adored it. I hope that everyone on my flist had a Happy Valentine day spent with the people they care about.

The second thing is just a shout out pimp for the [info]bitchesofbritin newest picspam post. It's all about emotions. We had hoped to have it up and posted in celebration of Valentine's Day but Callie was just too fucking slow we just couldn't get it done in time. But it is up now. We hope you all will check it out. The Many Moods of Brian and Justin

My final piece of news is I will not be online very much if at all for the next week. Cillian and I are leaving today (Sunday) for holiday in Mexico. I will be back next week Friday. While I plan on bringing my lappie, I'm not sure just how much internet time I will have. I fully intend to enjoy the warm weather, the sand, the sights and Cillian. I hope to come back refreshed and rested. It has been a long cold winter and we still have a ways to go before spring arrives.

And just to keep this post from being completely dull and boring, I'm leaving you (I hope) a little bit of fandom fun. A short picspam from the S3 bloopers, Randy Justin spilling beer on Gale Brian. Enjoy.

So I bid you all fond farewell. Everyone....please stay safe and be good to each other. I shall miss you.

you are thistle

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

I can't argue that I like the color red and blue. Had no idea that it translates into being confident. LOL..

Over at [info]bitchesofbritin, Season 5 picspam of Brian Kinney is up. With this latest post, our series of Brian Kinney....Eye Candy with a Soul is now complete.

It is all about S5.........some good, some angst, some hope, but much pretty.

I hope you all will stop by and check it out. You will also find links to all of the past posts of this series. While some of the seasons were more fun than others, I'm glad we saw it through.I'm also glad it is done. Speaking for myself, it really has been a emotional journey.

LOL.....[info]vlredreign did it. She also wrote one for [info]badbadpixie and [info]firehead30. You can find mine here called Tactical Error, Ai's drabble here called Shopping Woes and Fire's drabble found here called The Red Lady.

Thank you Red. That was totally awesome. Now let me return the favor. A little visual hotness for one and all on my flist. Very very short picspams.

Thank You

  • Jan. 29th, 2008 at 3:22 AM

I am truly touched by the lovely comments and sentiments that so many on my flist left me in response to my last post. I promise to answer each and everyone in the next day or so. On top of everything else that is going on in my life, I've been struggling for days now with the flu. I am hopeful that I will be better in the next day or so. It is just one stubborn strain.

I know the bitches are most anxious for us to do another picspam and I have a couple posts planned for [info]qaf_repixed. Lots of stuff in the works. With V day fast upon us, [info]badbadpixie, [info]firehead30, [info]vlredreign and myself have a few ideas as to how to celebrate it Queer as Folk style.

And as for the final part of our WIP Brian Kinney EYE CANDY WITH A SOUL S5, that is also being worked on. Please don't think badly of the other bitches. It isn't their fault. The fault is mine.

Beyond that I miss not playing like I'm use to. I hope that will change soon.

Again thank you to one and all in the fandom. This special little land in cyberspace is my home away from home. It really is a magical kingdom filled with sprites and fairies.

Carrington

  • Jan. 28th, 2008 at 1:27 AM

Today is a anniversary of sorts, but not a happy one, the date of my brother's death. It's hard to believe that he has been gone for over six years now. His name was Carrington and he was thirteen years older than me. At the time of his death he was only 39 years old, way to young to die. Cary was tall, model handsome, gracious, and extremely funny. Trust me, no one could beat his wit. He was I guess what you call a health nut who took great pains to be active. He was a vegetarian and though he enjoyed the occasional wine, never smoked. So it was a hugh shock to our parents and myself to say the least when he was diagnose with lung cancer. Within two years of learning of his illness, he was gone. He went to University of MN and his major was art. He was a tremendous artist. Often he tapped me to be a model for his sketches. I remember one in particular when I was about 6 or 7 and he had my mama put my long blonde hair in curlers for a sketch. Gee, just how every girl wants to be immortalized......... in those old fashion rollers with the pink pick. Not attractive. But ultimately he would turn his attention to other interests. He had a passion for business and excelled at that. The last six years of his life emotionally he probably was the happiest he'd ever been. He was in a committed relationship with his partner Stephen and they were living in his favorite city San Francisco. It goes without saying that I think that it wasn't fair that my brother didn't get to live longer, but the time he had he never seem to waste. He was always off somewhere trying something new, testing himself. He took up hang gliding and hot air ballooning, and loved rock climbing. He was for sure the best cook in our family and that's saying something as we all loved to try to outdo each other. He loved the arts, music, and books. During part of his twenties he lived in Manhattan where he made a point to go to a play every week. He spent the past dozen years up to his death in San Francisco, no hardship visiting him there. Although since his death, it's hard to visit my favorite city. Hard cause he isn't there. He isn't there to take me to a new resturant he discovered or an art gallery or to one our old haunts.

Well everyone....the party has started and you are ALL invited. All day today and through the week end, The [info]bitchesofbritin are putting out a call to you, yes, YOU, to join us in a fandom-wide celebration to celebrate and to appreciate Emmett Honeycutt. To me he often had the best lines, some rather outrageous outfits, and the best sense of self. There was no room in his life for self hate. He embraced life. As [info]rebeccama wrote Emmett is someone who tends to enjoy emotions both good and bad and to show that enjoyment.

Photobucket
"You know, I don't see much difference in how you play your game on Sunday afternoons and how I play my game on Saturday nights."
That quote cracks me up everytime I watch the episode 409.

Over at [info]bitchesofbritin, we have FOR THE LOVE OF EMMETT. But remember this is outrageous Emmett so some of the pics aren't work safe.
Also, [info]rebeccama has reposted her wonderful meta, THE RELATIONSHIP OF EMMETT AND DREW. [info]shadownyc has also reposted her meta on QAF Series Overview -- Part 3D -- Emmett Hunnicutt.

[info]orlith wrote a very funny drabble, YOUR TURN.

[info]xanister wrote WHAT GOES WITH TANGERINE?. Hysterical!

Keep an eye out for [info]qafmaniac, [info]xie_xie_xie, [info]badbadpixie, [info]qaf_repixed, [info]qaf_coffeeclub and [info]qaf_retread for Emmett goodness this weekend.

As for the rest of you, if you've got icons or graphics, or a favorite vid or stories to share or to rec, join in! Or simply make a post acknowledging your love for Emmett Honeycutt and the show. And don't be shy about commenting at people's journals or communities. That is what it's all about. Sharing the love.

Here's to our flame for all things Queer as Folk to burn bright!!

Meme, pimping, and picspam

  • Jan. 12th, 2008 at 11:19 PM

Hello Hello Lovely Flist,

I hope life is treating you good. I'm doing well. Work has been busy but good. Over at the [info]bitchesofbritin we posted earlier in the week a picspam. This time celebrating the friendship of Brian and Michael. Check it out if you wish. Everyone is welcome and we really had fun with it. We are hard at work on several projects for that journal. The final installement of our WIP of Brian Kinney...Eye Candy with a Soul hopefully will be done soon. And we have another very special picspam that the bitches have been hard at work on ready to be posted in the next couple days..hopefully. In the final stages of that one. All of us are really excited about it.

And I know I maybe a bit late here but last week over at bj_actioninsane a new theme had been posted. It was all about Justin being fucked with something large. Very very large. I've three so far of the six that were submitted and enjoyed them so much. I can't wait to read the other three later tonight hopefully. Check them out. [info]vlredreign story When Fangirlsboys Strike Back especially is inspired.

I was tagged by [info]galesweetie for this meme that has been going around.


Well, you know it was such a lovely evening, Justin and Brian decided to take a stroll. )

I tag [info]vlredreign, [info]badbadpixie, [info]seanmegansean, [info]richmondhillgal, and [info]testdog65 and [info]tweedygal for good measure.

Hello flist,

How is everyone? I sure hope you all had a happy holiday. Mine was wonderful and even though I had to work, I still able to spend time with my mother and Cillian. And Santa was so good to me. Got so many lovely things.

Pimping....So people. Have you all been able to check out [info]qaf_giftxchnge? Such pretty graphics, wonderful and enchanting fiction to read, and VIDS!! Fantastic vids to watch. So if you haven't visited it yet, then what are you waiting for? FYI...Oh....if you aren't a member of the community, you have to join first, but in order to be approved, your date of birth is required to be visible on your userpage.

While I have been busy, I have manage to work on a short picspam. It comes from 314. Brian on the verge of a panic attack about his "possession withdrawal" is classic funny. I love how Brian looks for and gets much needed reassurance from Justin that he did the right thing. I loved Justin's pride over Brian doing the right thing and his acceptance of him, with or without the italian furniture and $5,000 TV. This whole arc is even more ahhhmazing and wonderful because we all believe it.

Is it possible to fall more deeply in love with your materialistic lover after he hawks his possessions in an uncharacteristic, self-sacrificing play to save the day? )

A Long over due post

  • Dec. 24th, 2007 at 4:55 AM

Well hello my friends.

It has been forever since I've posted. Just been busy with RL. Still I do try to stay in touch with the fandom and my flist. My passion is just as strong and still endures for Queer as Folk and everything related to the fandom. These past few months have put a bit of a crimper on my online time.

One of my biggest frustrations was with my desktop computer. I was having major issues with it. Red x's were showing up instead of images, it was slowing down despite my fast internet connection, and I was getting tons of errors and freezes. While I have a lappie, alot of my preferred programs aren't uploaded on it such as photoshop. A couple weeks ago I took it in to have it looked at diagnostically. Come to learn, I had tons of mal-ware infections, spyware,and viruses despite believing that I was protected from it. While it cost me a small fortune, I was able to get my computer repaired, had a completely different anti-virus program installed as well as a spy sweeper program. It's running like a top. Once I got that fixed I was once again able to play in photoshop and work on projects without fear of errors. So just in case you missed it, [info]bitchesofbritin were finally able to post S4 of our WIP of Brian Kinney....Eye Candy with a Soul. You can find it
here if you just click. Once the holidays are over, we will finish up with S5. And just a heads up, the bitches have all kinds of plans for various picspams and picspam themes for the coming year.

Callie's holiday wish )

403 picspam....The Bath house scene

  • Nov. 16th, 2007 at 10:12 AM

I'm taking a break to post. The last week in my spare time I've been working on a layout with [info]badbadpixie for one her buddies, plus capping and working on S4 Brian for the Eye Candy with a Soul picspam for the [info]bitchesofbritin journal. While I was capping Season 4, I'm once again reminded how much I love this season. I confess that it wasn't always so. I mean I've always liked it but it is only in the last couple years that I've come to really love and appreciate it. But I will say that there was one scene in this season that I've always loved which was in Episode 403...the bathhouse scene that featured Brian and Jennifer. Visually it's use of color, lighting, and mood was a wonder plus add into that mix the beauty of Brian with his natural grace and elegance, well it makes for a memorable scene. With Brian as our guide, it was a invitation to look for all the hidden meanings and symbolism of this place as he goes from one room to another snapping pictures all the while processing the potential of this place. I loved that Brian was able to take a piece of his past and use it to create his future. Seeing this side of Brian's personality, his creative spirit, it just underscored another reason why he and Justin are so connected to each other. Why they are so right for each other.
So what's a girl to do but a picspam in celebration and appreciation of that scene?



We don't think in a box. We don't live in a box. Therefore, we don't work in a box. )

And to continue my lovefest for this scene, I rec a video over at QAF_Repixed that heavily features this scene. It's called Jesus, Etc by the wonderfully talented [info]rhiannonhero. Check the post out and the video. A perfect way to jump start the week end. Just think of the picspam as a appetizer but the video as the main course.

Happy Week end Fandom. I hope it's a good one.
