████ is it. We're all █████ to ██████ █████████.
I hope everyone's backed up all their online material by now...
I'm censoring my LJ, in protest of a bill that gives any corporation and the US government the power to censor the internet--a bill that could pass THIS WEEK. To see the uncensored text, and to stop internet censorship, visit: http://americancensorship.org/posts/
Just came from a holiday parade where I one) watched very little of the actual parade because I stayed inside the restaurant where we met for dinner beforehand, because two) I totally was indulging in baby time with Godbaby #2. I was going to upload a snap I got of him smiling on my camera, but Lj is being a bitch so maybe later. He was so playful tonight! So much fun.
Anyone want to do my Christmas shopping for me? I'm like wayyyyyyyyyy behind on it. I've bought two things so far, both online from Cyber Monday. Why? Because I suck at getting gifts this year for some reason. It would be so much easier if I could get everyone I know a bottle of wine and be done with it. *sigh*
On another note, if anyone would like a Christmas card, leave me your address in a screened comment below! I found some cute ones I like, and since I already told my family I'm not sending them this year, you all get them instead. Let me know if I should use real name only, or real and Lj.
Who am I kidding, I'll still send cards to family, I bought like 50 of them. Hahaha! :D

Play Merthur and Brolin dress up here courtesy of lil_lollypop36. This is the bestest fun ever! And mind, I had to force them to put pants on. They were both rascally little buggers that were all "no, I don't wanna!" lol!!

Read this analysis from boing-boing.net
Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.
“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.” The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.
Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.
You like the internet, right? I mean, you're here.
From the link above:
As drafted, the legislation would grant the government and private parties unprecedented power to interfere with the Internet's domain name system (DNS). The government would be able to force ISPs and search engines to redirect or dump users' attempts to reach certain websites' URLs. In response, third parties will woo average users to alternative servers that offer access to the entire Internet (not just the newly censored U.S. version), which will create new computer security vulnerabilities as the reliability and universality of the DNS evaporates.
It gets worse: Under SOPA's provisions, service providers (including hosting services) would be under new pressure to monitor and police their users’ activities. While PROTECT-IP targeted sites “dedicated to infringing activities,” SOPA targets websites that simply don’t do enough to track and police infringement (and it is not at all clear what would be enough). And it creates new powers to shut down folks who provide tools to help users get access to the Internet the rest of the world sees (not just the “U.S. authorized version”).
This is being framed as an attempt to fight hackers and pirates. Don't buy it. And don't think for a minute that it's going to stop there. This is bad. And at the hearing today, only one opponent of the bill is being allowed to testify.
Please do whatever you can to fight this. Email congresspeople. Sign petitions. Yell about it in every venue you can.

I need some Merlin/Arthur or Colin/Bradley as fathers ( mpreg, adoption, whatever doesn't matter) like you wouldn't believe. Doesn't that little boy just look like the best little mix of them both? And wouldn't Arthur/Bradley be just the cutest "mum" to him?
Flist, this is me begging.... Please, rec me something that this pic could be part of! I'm bouncing in anticipation and fluffy plot bunny-ness!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, back to your regularly scheduled Friday morn. Or in my case...
All books are clickable. I had already read everything on her Harry/Draco bookshelf so I never linked to it. But wait! She has more! She did one featuring my favoritest potions master EVAH! :D

Here's a photo of one of the downed trees from last weeks storm. I now have a portion of it on my deck that I am using as a stool come flower pot holder thing. I know, kinda white trashy, but I don't care. It's still my house, I can do what I want. :D
Good photos of my garden are coming soon. To give you an idea of before/after, here's a photo (stolen from Hubs Facebook of what the garden looked like right after we got the beds completely made and just planted everything. You can kinda sorta see the cages and trellis if you know where to look for them, but that's about it. Most of the plants were just little baby seeds at this point. You can also see the beginning milkweed plants coming in on the far side. We has butterfly's and don't want to take away their food source. The far right of the garden is transplanted lily's, a rose bush, and hollyhocks. One of the lily's just started blooming yesterday so I'll try and get pics tonight. It's gorgeous! Next year we're going to move all of them out of the garden and in to other beds we just made this summer. I'm excited. :)
Did I die?
Is this heaven?
Thanks so much enchanted_jae , flamingolady , protowilson , faithwood , kate0404 , khasael , alisanne , cassie_black12 , and nursedarry for bringing this fantastically chocolate orgy of men in to my life. :D
And Oh. My. God. Two months of free paid time!
Based on my flist, I'm not the only one who's been graced with this awesomeness today so either
1) Someone loves us and we must all scour our lists and use the process of elimination so we can narrow it down to whomever did it so we may glomp them properly
2) there's credence to that rumor floating around where if you send/receive so many v-gifts, you get free time. This is when I'm guessing maybe all those kisses we sent last week were chock full of more pleasure than we could possibly imagine!!!! :D
