I know, I know...

I keep meaning to post, and not doing it. Hopefully [livejournal.com profile] spatterdash and I will now get a free month of paid time. ;)

Catching up

I'm going to be going through LJ and trying to catch up now, so expect a flurry of comments. :)

Is this thing on?

When I wrote last, what I really should have said was: "I'm not even going to pretend that I'm going to post again before the end of the year."

Which is what it turned into.

BUT, here we are again. Tra la la. Happy New Year.

I'm not even going to pretend anymore that I will post in this LJ again before the end of the month. ;)

Greetings, earthlings

It's September, so I'm going to pretend that I'm going to start posting in LJ again. Watch me now, hear me now. ;)

August? Really?

Apparently, the summer is almost over. We are heavily into Burning Man season and thundering toward Work Event Craziness season. Where does the time go? I donno.

Welcome back, aceofkittens

I like how LJ is filling up with posts again. Will I join the ranks of those who are posting? Maybe, hopefully, probably, I don't know. :)

The end of an era

I didn't renew my paid LJ account. What's the point? I wish I could re-commit to it, but until I do, it seems like a waste of money. Sure, it's only $20, but that's money I could spend on booze.

Total LJ fail, yet again... in my defense, I am super busy, but that's not really anything new. I will try to catch up on posts and do better. Really.

The Year in Review: 2012

Since this is what I always think about whenever I make the first of my typical two posts each month, I'm going to start off January's copious postings with the meme where I go through all of last year's posts and c/p the first line for your amusement. So meta, amirite?

Notably, this was the first time I genuinely forgot a couple of times and didn't make some inane unlocked post as my first post of the month. As a result, I had to suppress one of the entries, but oh well! I present...

YEAR IN REVIEW: 2012

Go to your Calendar and find the first (public) entry for each month of 2012. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review."

January: I just discovered that the "new" LJ comment style somehow magically restores all of my user icons that are currently locked because I didn't want to pay extra for the add-on.
February: The laptop has a virus (or thirty).
March: I'm back in the endless cycle of "I really should post more / I have so much I want to talk about / but I have no time / oh look, now it's two weeks later."
April: Deep thought for the day: I don't miss volunteering with the cat rescue people, but I sure do miss seeing kittens.
May: I get to go to Vegas on Tuesday for work!
June: First World Problems, I know, but I'm irritated by the fact that I no longer seem to get any notifications on LJ — nor do I get to see most people's FB posts, no matter how many settings I tweak to make sure that, in fact, I am getting to see everyone's posts.
July: I've decided that it's my moral imperative to make sure all of you come with me to an Old 97's concert at least once.
August: Honestly, I have no idea how I'm going to survive being in Vegas for a week in September for work.
September: Here's the thing: if I had gone to Burning Man this year, I would be missing the Old 97's at the Fillmore tomorrow night.
October: This was a friends-locked entry and I'm not comfortable posting its first line.
November: Guess what, I still suck at updating, which shouldn't be a surprise, but I really was on a roll there for a while.
December: I need new black boots and I need them fast.

I like how some themes are a constant, no matter the year—Vegas, the Old 97's, and, of course, my hollow promises of posting more. :)

Happy LJversary to me!

Holy shitballs, I've had this LJ for ten years. That blows my mind.

I wrote two entries on that first day. Funny thing is, I could have written both those entries today. The more things change... etc.

Crap!

I'm back in the endless cycle of "I really should post more / I have so much I want to talk about / but I have no time / oh look, now it's two weeks later." But I have so much I want to talk about. Maybe I'll just start cranking out posts later.

No, really.

Wait, what's this?!

I just discovered that the "new" LJ comment style somehow magically restores all of my user icons that are currently locked because I didn't want to pay extra for the add-on. So that's very exciting to me! They're still not available if I say, make a post, or comment in the old style. But it's like a tiny little New Year's present. I liked a lot of those icons - there was no rhyme or reason as to which got "frozen" and which I got to keep.

Oh, and yes, Happy New Year!

The "Year in Review" meme

YEAR IN REVIEW: 2011

Go to your Calendar and find the first (public) entry for each month of 2010. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review."

January: Well, once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!
February: I am in a particularly foul mood as of late, for a number of reasons that I don't want to get into in a public entry, especially since — as always — I am keenly aware of the fact that this is the first entry for the month, and thus subject to the "End of Year First Lines Meme."
March: April may be the cruelest month, but February was kind of a bitch.
April: Between being sick and a host of other crap, I've once again fallen out of the habit of posting.
May: I've been hiding under a rock, which means I have abandoned LJ once again.
June: As I may have mentioned previously, every morning at 6:00 a.m., I am awakened by what I call "The Alarm Claw."
July: The new Old 97's record is out today and I can't wait to have it playing on an endless loop for the rest of the summer.
August: A week or so ago, a friend started a topic on Twitter: What if George R. R. Martin wrote YA / Children's books?
September: Well, so much for keeping up with LJ.
October: Here it is, suddenly a month or more later.
November: Happy World Vegan Day, everybody!
December: Earlier in the week, I overheard someone on the bus say, "Bye, TTYL!"

I'm so meta about this meme. I may have to stop doing it, because I'm always thinking about it at the beginning of each month or whenever I get around to posting that month. :)

Oops, forgot to post

Here it is, suddenly a month or more later. I guess I better write something soon or I'll feel that I shouldn't have re-upped my paid membership! ;) (How many times have I written just that?)

Hiding under a rock

I've been hiding under a rock, which means I have abandoned LJ once again. I'm going to try to get back in the LJ posting habit... really. I've actually been sitting on a bunch of posts, not the least of which is the account of my 1-year anniversary with Sprat! :)

Sprat loves me the most.

More later!

And so it goes

April may be the cruelest month, but February was kind of a bitch. So hopefully things will normalize soon and then I can procrastinate things like the Virtues meme just because I'm lazy, not because I'm dealing with stressful RL crap!

Again, this is a placeholder post because I'm always thinking about that "first line" meme.

Meme this, Batman!

The fact that you can't edit your comments if your LJ isn't "paid" was the last straw and I subscribed for another year. Damn you, LJ! But now that you've got me, I'm going to put you to work... with a poll!

You see, I wanted to write another meme that was the flip side of the "Seven Deadly Sins" meme, but in doing so, discovered that there's two different lists of virtues. One is the list of "Seven Heavenly Virtues" which corresponds directly to the sins, and the other is the list of "Cardinal" virtues. There's some overlap, but it's not the same. So, without further ado:

[Poll #1706821]

Numerous monkeys are standing by numerous typewriters in anticipation of a tidal wave of responses. :)

Really, LJ? Really?

So I've been too busy at the Russian Festival to post the meme or really do much online. Now my paid account expired and they stripped away all my user-pics. Last time, I had some extra "legacy" user-pics due to having been a paid member for X amount of time... maybe I am misremembering it, I don't know. The point is, ugh! I can't deal with this today. I have to be at the Festival in like 20 minutes!
