My cat keeps biting.

I love my cat, of course. She's six months old, and her name is Turkey. (And how cliche is it that I'm talking about my cat on livejournal?) She's playful, and energetic and relatively well behaved. She always, always poops and pees in her litter box or the other cat's box and never claws up the furniture.

Yet she keeps biting people--well, me and Joe specifically. Strangers she either lets them pet her or she runs and hides from. When she first wakes up, she'll let us pet her, or when we're waking up (which is weird), she'll purr and rub against us. But any other time, she shuns contact and will bite if you try to pet her for more than three seconds.

We've never been mean to her. We try hard to emphasize our hands are not for playing, but she still likes to attack them unprovoked. We've managed to train her for other things with the spray bottle--she no longer goes after people food, for example.

Everything has been done to try to discourage her biting. All the home remedies--hold down her tongue, make hissing noises when she does it, tell her 'no' in a loud, firm voice. It's gotten only slightly better.

Right now I'm just hoping she'll grow out of it. She's still very high energy and kittenish, so perhaps as she ages she'll mellow out.

Once more into the breach

Haha, not breaking my New Year's Resolution! But, basically, I'm getting carried away making Sherlock gifs. Which is time consuming because I am a rookie at graphics. Sometimes they turn out great, sometimes they are complete dickbutt.

Another resolution of mine was to call more things dickbutt. Mission accomplished.

Yuletide Greetings
gertie_flirty

To my flist: skip over this if you don't want to read my Yuletide letter.

Dear Yuletide Author,

Firstly, thank you so much for bearing with me and my requests. You are an amazing, awesome person and I greatly anticipate the big reveal. Of course, I know optional details are optional, and I definitely want you to write something you enjoy! But at the same time, I know I wasn't too terribly detailed on the sign-up form, so here I'll give some more details.

Firstly, How I Met Your Mother: This a fandom near and dear to my heart. I would love gen of them having some big wack adventure that ties in all the mysteries of the show. And while I cherish the canon ships, I'd love to see some Robin/Marshall. The thing is, I'm kind of finicky. I apologize for this in advance. I'm not really into infidelity, so I'd rather not see Marshall cheat on Lily. I'm also not big into Die For Our Ship stuff either. So maybe AU? Alternate timeline? However, if the first two options can't be avoided, I'm sure I'll be happy with it anyway. Even if not pairing stuff, just Marshall and Robin interacting on a friendship level would make me more than happy. :)


Secondly, the 2011 Emmy Opening Sketch: if this is our shared fandom, you probably already know what it is. If not, then here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7C50iY04M8, or alternatively, this is my preferred sketch, the Office crossover one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDJpTSQc6wc. Basically, I'd like giant crossover gen with everyone living and working together, with The Office, Psych, Parks and Rec, Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, Castle, etc. all taking place in the same universe. I understand this is pretty ambitious and I wouldn't blame you for not doing it. 

Thirdly, Portal. If this is our shared fandom, huzzah! I love the game, and would be happy with nearly anything you would write, but I'd prefer gen--specifically introspective Chell gen filling in gaps of canon. But I really would be happy with anything for this fandom.

And lastly, Sky High. I was always bummed they didn't make a sequel for this about Warren Peace's dad breaking out of prison and the teen superheroes had to band together to fight him. So a good adventure story with any ship you wanted in it would be great. Or just gen of the kids in school, facing superhero teenager problems. I love things like that!

Things I don't like: I really don't like graphic porn in any fandom. Smut in general is just not my cup of tea. I'm also looking for fluffier things, but angst is all right as long as it is in character or plot necessary. I find things like self-mutilation extremely triggering.

Things I like or love:  Plotty, humorous gen. The amount of shipping can be great or little, depending on your preference. I love clever prank wars, well researched stories, and friendly friends being friendly. I'm a huge fan of friend!shipping in practically any fandom. I like schmoop if it's not too heavy handed (aah, that's so vague, I'm sorry).  Don't worry about spoiling me for anything, not like my fandom have a lot of things to spoil, lol. I also like well done AUs of any kind, from high school AU to "They all go to Hogwarts!" type stuff. I like character focus. There are actually a lot more things that I like than that I don't like, so go all out!

Mostly, I'd just like to read something fun. So thank you, Yuletide author, I'm sure I'll love whatever you end up writing for me.

Love, 
Shaunna :)


Planning Should Be Essential
gertie_flirty

I made the last minute decision to sign up for NaNoWriMo. . . I have nothing prepared. I'm really just going on a whim here.

And I've never been more excited! :D Perhaps you will be seeing me post my writings here. I hope so. I hope I don't get too busy or procrastinate too much. Hmmm . . . wish me luck!
