Subject:Mag7 Bingo Card
Time:10:22 pm
Mag7DayBook has started a Mag7 Bingo. Even though I now have a Dreamwidth account, I decided to post the stories here at LJ, and to also have my bingo card here.

The order of the stories:
"The Heavens Shall Tremble" - Moon and the stars square
"Die Young, Stay Pretty" - Dark!fic square
"The Burden Of Friendship" - Restraint square
"Easy Is As Easy Does" - Splinter square
"A Hole In The Heart" - Wild Card square
"The More Things Change" - Aliens prompt and the bingo (not yet on the card)

Here's my card:

Sleigh Ride, Winter Wonderland, Let It Snow, and Jingle Bells are NOT Christmas songs! They are songs that celebrate winter. Period. But, good luck in ever hearing them on the radio after December 25th, since most people lump those in with Christmas. Some years back, Sting released an album of winter music, as he felt there was a death of winter-related music out there, and what there was, was getting lost in amongst the Christmas songs.

It also irks me that one radio station around here starts playing Christmas music on Thanksgiving, and then stops on Christmas Day. Christmas doesn't even start until Christmas Day, and it would be nice to hear the Christmas music during all of Christmas, instead of all those days before Christmas.

That brings me to another annual gripe of mine, and that is with stores and people "celebrating" the 12 days of Christmas prior to Christmas. You'd think that in these modern days of the internet, that people could google it and learn that Christmas runs from Christmas Day to Epiphany, January 6th. My mother, who was born in 1928, remembered celebrating "old" Christmas as a child in North Carolina. One of these days, I'll poll my aunts and uncles to see when the family stopped celebrating January 6th, and just only celebrated December 25th. Mom was the second child of 10, with her oldest brother born in 1927 and the youngest sibling in 1945.

End of griping!

I would like to wish all of my LJ friends a very Merry Christmas, Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy/Good whatever religious or cultural celebrations you all might practice. I also wish all of you a wonderful and healthy 2016!

So, there's a LJ community where I lurk from time to time. Recently, a member there had made a post, then later deleted it after being attacked by a few people. One of the people is a stalker who follows her all over the internet. The other attacks were from other members who apparently just don't like this woman. One of them (and I think the other, or someone else, backed her on this) came right out and told the OP that if she was a victim of bulling then it was her own fault due to the nature of her posts.

WTF????

I did learn that this person (the idiot, not the OP) is in another country, but why aren't people getting the message that a victim doesn't choose to be a victim? It's not the OP's fault that someone didn't like her post(s). The stalker person made a conscious decision to respond to that post. There was no invitation for this stalker, or anyone else, to come and treat the OP like shit. You'd think that with all that bullying and the results of it being in the news, that attitudes would change. But, I guess I thought wrong with that.

Subject:Fic: The More Things Change
Time:12:37 am
Title: The More Things Change
Author: Cathy Roberts
Fandom: The Magnificent Seven
Characters: Mostly J.D. and Vin
Rating: PG-13
Date: 1 December 2011

Summary: Written for my "Aliens" prompt for the Mag7 Bingo at Mag7DayBook. Could be considered a crossover with "Falling Skies" - and this gives me my Bingo! You didn't think that this was the first trip here for the Skitters, did you? I don't own either show, nor do I make money from either show. I also don't make any apologies for blatantly stealing dialogue from both shows. My thanks to the members of the Write 'Em Cowboys! group. Their comments, suggestions and guidance is greatly appreciated.
