gandolforf's brother, Eric Lee Bark, pictured above, was last seen in Maquoketa, IA, on November 4, 2011. He gave no word to his family as to where he was going.
Eric was born December 19, 1987. He is 6'2" and weighs approximately 170 pounds. He has hazel eyes and brown hair, and there is a 6" scar on the outside of his left arm, near his elbow. The last time he was seen, he was wearing a dark blue hoodie and blue jeans. His car is also missing; it's a green Jimmy with rust marks.
If you see him, please contact gandolforf at firstname.lastname@example.org, on Twitter at gandolforf, on Tumblr at http://gandolforf.tumblr.com/, or let me know. I will let A. know about anything as soon as I hear. You can also contact the Maquoketa Police Department at (563) 652-2468.
There is a Facebook post here; please pass it on if you can. There is also a Tumblr post here.

So, not much going on today. I really need to motivate myself to write more and I have three short stories to finish from a meme on LJ. Damn. I can't believe that I'm having trouble writing when it used to be the one thing I actually enjoyed doing.
I can say that I was complete rubbish when I first started. I think I've improved. I hope that I've improved and I'm not as dry and detail driven as I used to be. I have branched out into other fandoms now, Doctor Who and Torchwood, so I'm hoping that watching some of those episodes might spark a bit of creativity and I'll want to write again.
It's sad too, but myself and two very good friends started a Harry Potter RPG game and I haven't even written for two of my characters. I should have a swift kick in my ass. This sucks.
Sorry for the rambling and whining.
How are you doing my wonderful friends?
If anyone knows how to make a custom layout here on Dreamwidth, I would greatly appreciate it. You would have my everlasting devotion.
In other news, my niece will be here at 4:30am. Ugh. Wow, in about four and a half hours from now. And I'm not even tired. Great.
I'm not good at writing drabbles. I tend to be a bit more wordy, so I'll do a mini story instead. I'm more familiar with Harry Potter, Naruto, Inuyasha, Gokusen, and Bleach, but will be willing to try and write other fandoms if I can have a little time to research.
I have to say that I have no use for a site like that and if anyone of my flist is interested in doing that, then please unfreind me. I am the type of person that will tell someone if they pissed me off or if I don't agree with them. I don't hide behind anonymous comments. To me, that is cowardice.
Now, this is no normal wank. Oh no. It has to do with the fact that SPN made a nod to the fandom, but in some people's opinion, not in a good way.
Here is the wank itself, complete with links. Basically, the uproar is over Dean and Sam going on to the internet and discovering "Wincest". They both agree it's "sick" and then I'm sure, move on.
However, there is outcry from some of the fandom that love Wincest. Now me? I can take it or leave it. Truthfully, I've watched maybe four total episodes of the show and I have no opinion one way or the other. I can say that I love watching fangirls froth at the mouth and wank till there's no tomorrow. So, yes, this wank tickled me in a good way.
It also caught my eye since I know that I have a few good friends on my flist that absolutely love the show. Because of that, I thought it would be fun to post it here in case they don't read Fandom Wank.
If there are those on my flist that like Wincest or slash or just het, I'm cool with whatever floats your boat and I don't judge. Hell, I enjoy slash a lot, and I love my het pairings too. I love fandom because it's fandom in all its wacky glory. I've been around the Harry Potter fandom for a loooooooong time and we all know how batshit it got (and can still be). I can say that I have no vested interest in SPN fandom. Again, four episodes. So, it doesn't hurt me that Wincest was poked with a stick. It amuses the hell out of me.
In other news, I made brownies today. Tomorrow is homemade chicken pot pie and then I'm going to make pulled pork. My sister is driving, with her kids, to Reno and will be there for a week. She wanted me to go, but there is no way I'm driving for about ten hours in a car with three kids. Three kids whose only fun is to fight all the damn time. No thanks. I told Leslie the only way I'd go is if I had a rental car and a separate hotel room. I will spend this weekend cleaning and organizing my mom's recipes.
Welcome to my new friends! Take a look around and get comfortable.
I tend to post about many different things, I can get rolling and then switch to a completely different topic, so beware.
I don't post about anything political. Well, there was one post pre_election, but that was it. I try to be upbeat and not emo. Also, I don't get upset if people don't comment. If you'd like to, please do. If not, no biggie. I like to type things out and put them in perspective, you know?
Well, a little about me. I live in Las Vegas, I'm engaged, have two dogs (Harley and Dakota) and the majority of my family live here. I'm way into fandom type stuff and love learning about different fandoms and also write and read fan fiction. I also enjoy to write original works, read, cook, bake and take road trips. I hate living in Vegas because the summers here suuuuuuuck.
Now, on to a different topic. LOL. I am in the process of going to school. I'm getting my degree in Elementary Education and haven't decided my minor yet. I decided that I'm sick of working a job and I want a career. Also, I love being around kids and hope that I can make learning fun for them and that they will carry that into the rest of their academic careers.
Well, enough boring stuff. I hope you all have a great night!
Also, goddamn you Yahoo mail for being down!!! I want to check my email and I can't because you suck. Ahem. Sorry.
You are The Moon
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.
It's kind of scary how this is accurate. Except for the medication part. And the drugs and alcohol. LOL. I'm so damn boring.
I spent three days at my mom's house while she's out of town. And wouldn't you know it... her internet was down. Argh! So, no internet for a few days, but I did have movies to watch at least.
It's been really warm here this week. Mid eighties. I'm definitely not a fan of hot weather, but I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it was today.
I don't have a lot to report on this update, so I'll end it here before I bore anyone. LOL. I hope you all are doing well. *hugs
I think I'm going to take a slight hiatus from LJ for a bit. Offline life has gotten a bit crazy and I have some projects that need to be taken care of. I'll be back very, very soon and I'll miss you all.
*hugs to f-list
And it's nothing bad, just need to get my priorities straight and stop procrastinating.
I've decided not to do the typical resolutions. So, I vowed to do three things this year...
1. Eat healthier. I could lie to myself and say that I'll do a lot more exercise and eat only organic products, but reality is a bitch and I know that will never happen. This covers a lot for me and I've been slowly changing my eating habits and it's working well.
2. Be happy. I just want to be happy. I don't care about having more money or being able to go on vacation, I want to wake up and be content with my life and myself.
3. Write more! I know that this will thrill my fellow bah. I've been horribly neglectful and I want to do better. I won't put limits on how much I'll get done, so this way I can write because I enjoy it and want to improve.
One of my friends emailed their resolutions list to me and my eyes almost fell out of my head. She has over 40 resolutions. 40! And I know her, she feels overwhelmed constantly and I can't believe she will stress herself needlessly. I told her to be a bit more realistic and cut a few out. Her response? "My life is a mess and I need all of them to get back on track." I feel so bad for her because by April she'll be a gibbering mess and maybe three of her resolutions will stick until the end of the year. She won't listen though, and she does this every year.
Oh well. I hope everyone had a wonderful NYE and will have a happy and prosperous 2009.
