*frantically checks watch* Whew. Okay. Good! Today is the birthday of [livejournal.com profile] c_woodhaven. *sheepish* Or it still is in the Central Time Zone, anyway. In addition to being a writer whose fic updates make me do the happy dance on a regular basis, Calypso is also one of the sweetest, most creative people I've encountered. For my birthday, I was delighted to find that she had not only written Ultimate Sin, a lovely piece of Spuffy smut, but that she had included a recipe for the title concoction as well. While I was away at my family's Thanksgiving celebration yesterday, I instructed doll!Spike to re-read said fic and come up with some ideas for a birthday photo shoot that would be a fitting tribute to the wonderful Ms. Woodhaven.

Well.

Nutella-inspired birthday naughtiness/nuttiness this way! )
Today is the birthday of [livejournal.com profile] petzipellepingo, Our Lady of the Library and fangirl extraordinaire. The steady stream of information and encouragement that she provides on a daily basis is an invaluable resource to her flist, and I'm grateful to be a recipient of both. (Honestly--lately, it seems that everything I know, I learned from her!) Mindful that Thanksgiving is fast approaching, I would like to make a seasonally appropriate birthday offering.

no turkey here, but I was able to find a little ham . . . )

forty-three spaiku: crushed )
Most of my flist probably watches this comm already, but just in case: yesterday was my posting day at [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy. You can find forty-three (yep, you heard me--they spiraled out of control!) haiku snapshots from "Crush" right here if such a thing interests you. I'm relieved to be done so that I can get back to reading the entries for this round; there have been so many wonderful contributions, and I highly recommend checking them out if you haven't already done so. *happy sigh* I do so love me some Spuffy. <333
For this week's [livejournal.com profile] fantas_magoria "School Hard" Flash Challenge: "Spike has fought two Slayers in the last century, and... he's killed them both." says Giles. Write a haiku poem for each of those incidents.

two spaiku: two slayers )
Well, Barb and Kathy probably don’t know it, but their party on Saturday was not the only celebration held in honor of their recent union. Imagine my family’s surprise when we heard tiny, rowdy cries of “Mountain Dew for EVERYONE!” and “Here’s to the birds!” emanating from Doll Party Central and happened upon this festive little tableau:

Today is the fourth glorious day of [livejournal.com profile] earth_vexer’s birthday week celebration. Without her talent for graphic design and her entertaining posts, my LJ existence would be very drab. Honestly, I’ve written many a haiku just because I wanted to pair it with a particular E_V icon. Also? When I’m having a dull day, I covetously browse through her tiny works of art the way other women look at expensive shoes online. So much pretty. Sorry I missed the actual day, E_V, and I hope you had a very good one.


birthday greetings from one icon to another )
Hi. *waves weakly* Well, so much for my recent vow to post every week. It seems that RL conspires against the composition of haiku at every turn. Now that BtVS, S2 (read Spikealicious) episodes are fast approaching at [livejournal.com profile] fantas_magoria, I have high hopes of both getting on a more regular writing schedule and doing more with S2 while the big FFL project continues to percolate. So. Here are a few more. Our boy gets a new name. BtVS, S5, PG. Previous parts here. Big thanks, as always, to Mister Beta for his input and to all of you who read the wee things.

Yesterday was [livejournal.com profile] missmurchison's birthday! I was out of pocket but sincerely hope that it was a good one. As a token of my undying gratitude for both her very fine fic and for inspiring me to write in the first place (shout out to haiku master Mr. M!), I wanted to do a sweet, romantic birthday photo shoot with doll!Spike and doll!Buffy.

birthday greetings from Spike & Buffy's bedroom )
It's [livejournal.com profile] rebcake's birthday today, and I wish her a wonderful one. In addition to having a fine sense of humor and a knack for FITB fic, she also holds the distinction of having made a contribution to International Phallic Spike Day and being the only person to ever write off-color verse for me! (I think we can dismiss the one I intercepted in eleventh grade that Mark Jarvis wrote about my boobs. From his mortification, I'm guessing that I was probably never meant to see it.) Spike limericks, however, are a joy forever. As a token of my appreciation, I wanted to try a little something different with doll!Spike. I thought we might abandon our usual photo shoot routine and try baking something: a cake for Rebcake!

Dubious offerings from our test kitchen. )

Today is the birthday of the wonderfully clever [livejournal.com profile] powerofthebook--intrepid journalist, automobile enthusiast (heh), and one of my favorite writers. (She's not too shabby with the Spaiku, either!) May the upcoming year bring you good times, good stories, and a complete absence of prima donnas. And, as a token of my esteem, may I offer . . .


a little something with your morning paper, madam? )
Bless me, LJ, for I have sinned. It has been thirty-six days since my last Spaiku post. Grant me absolution, and I will vow to post a weekly batch henceforth. Onward! Another interlude wherein Spike and Buffy Bicker at the Bronze--this time about vampirism as a profound existential experience--before the continuation of Spike's completely truthful reminiscences to her about the good old days. ;)   BtVS, S5, G. Previous parts here. Thanks to the mister for having Beta Lunch with me.

It’s [livejournal.com profile] pfeifferpack’s birthday! Hope you’ve had a lovely day, and I wish you all good things in the year ahead.

what's a birthday without a toast? )
Howdy! *hugs flist* I just wanted to say thanks for being a big part of the best birthday I've had in years! I was completely bowled over by your birthday offerings and feel so very lucky have such generous, talented friends. Honestly, I smiled so much yesterday that my cheeks kinda hurt today--that was some workout! The monitor of the MacBook is a little worse for wear, too. Dear me, will I never learn to set the beverage aside before I read the funny?

*deep breath*

a big thank you from little ol' me )

ETA: Half of my thank-you list dropped off after an edit but has now been re-added. Heartfelt apologies. And [livejournal.com profile] adriana_is? You know I adore you, dearie, but every time I try to edit your name back in, it posts without it! *hugs* Please be assured that I'm grateful to you, too!

Today is [livejournal.com profile] botias’ birthday! In addition to just generally being a fine person, she also writes such lovely smut. *sigh* I’ll always have fond memories of the day I read chapter four of Persephone at work and was so porn-bedazzled that I almost stapled my hand to a stack of paper five minutes later. Ah, good times. I've also come to count on B. for things like thought-provoking discussions of literary terms for naughty bits as well as exciting new mottos. Y’know what else? She's remarkably tolerant of weird readers who contact her out of the blue with gardening questions. Thanks to her initial encouragement, it's taken me an entire summer to kill my little herb container garden instead of the customary two weeks. That's a record!

Have a great day, sweetie! May the upcoming year be filled with goodness and lots of time to write all the evil blue alien overlord/unsouled vampire pr0n my your little heart desires. And with that, I say . . .
ONWARD. . . )
[profile] drop_edge sent me this with the following message: "If you can make Spike and Buffy do this to "Time of My Life" from Dirty Dancing, I will bake you a million loaves of homemade bread." *sigh* If only. This is the Everest of doll performance art; a humble hobbyist like myself can only dream of scaling its lofty peaks.

Belated birthday greetings to [livejournal.com profile] clawofcat! Thanks to her, I am now completely unable to look at a spatula without blushing. Hope you had a great day sweetie. I fully intended to write you some Spike/Dawn friendship haiku, but then this happened instead. D'oh!

A big ol' Happy Birthday to [personal profile] st_salieri! Hope you're having a good one, Dr. Ess. May the upcoming year bring you good things and reliable air conditioning. ;)

Well, I guess I've forestalled tearing off this Band-Aid as long as I possibly can, but I have to admit that I somehow feel personally guilty for dispatching him! Good night, Mr. Pratt. *pets him* Sorry to do this to you. BtVS, S5, PG.  Warning: character death. :(
Previous parts here. Thanks to Mister Beta for playing haiku View-Master with me.
