I've always said I'd stick with Livejournal until it dies, but the limit has now been reached. So, unfortunately, over the next long while I will be transferring my primary journal activities to my Dreamwidth fractured mirror.

You're all welcome to follow me on there, but I won't be friending back (or whatever they call it) for a long while until I can figure out how to reinstate the filters on some filtered posts. Right now everything is far too exposed over there. This will be a very rocky process.

I'm also looking for:
-Clear simple instructions on how to download and backup the stuff I have in Livejournal's Scrapbook, along with its folder structuring.
-An image hosting service that's cheap/free and reliable and offers at least 2gb of space.
-Places on Dreamwidth to find fandom communities there.

I'm sure more things will crop up as this process gets underway.

If I manage to write anything during this period, it will be posted to my AO3 account I do have a semi-active tumblr that I'm currently reblogging a lot of Merlin and random things on, and very rarely posting anything myself.

[Note re: broken graphic links 07/21/13]
PLEASE NOTE: For some reason, many many older posts of mine now have broken links instead of images. I will be working through all my previous posts verrry slowly and fixing them eventually, but if you find a post of mine with broken graphic links that you want to read sooner, drop a comment on it and I'll bump it to the head of the queue for recoding/reuploading the graphics and let you know when it's fixed. Thank you for your patience.
LJ Support is implementing a workaround (YAY! \o/), everything should be okay now, but please do let me know if you find any broken image links and I'll look into them. :-)
Fanfic written in 2017...


...none. Nothing. Nichts. Niente. Nada. Bugger all. Last story I posted was Dec 12, 2016.

So. I actually hadn't noticed that. It was a bit of a shocking realization.

I got a lovely comment on AO3 today that along with lovely things said that they were sad I wasn't writing anymore. I bristled a bit at that, and went to look and nope, nothing. But on reflection, it's not hard to see.

I had to skip [profile] watsonswoes July Writing Prompts, I couldn't do Mininano in November and now... Nothing. Between work, health issues, and the drain of keeping up with the mayhem happening in my personal world as well as the greater world, I've written nothing at all, for the first year since I started writing fanfic. I haven't even been writing much and just not posted it, maybe a thousand words. And that's not good.


So, for 2018 I aim to write and post more than 2017. Which is obviously not a huge challenge to beat a posting total of zero. Yeesh. *facepalm*

It's past that time of year again, when I torment some poor defenceless holiday tune online.

I usually try to avoid songs that are heavy on religion or Santa, but this darn thing has had me earwormed for a month now. I don't know if I've ever heard a recorded version of this song, but I have a clear memory one of my adult sisters singing it to me over and over when I was about 5. Lyrics, tune, and everything probably vary from whatever the actual version of this is.

"Little Toy Trains" (?)

Record music with Vocaroo >>

As usual I invite anyone inclined to record themselves singing a holiday song on Vocaroo or YouTube or wherever and post it on their Journal.

What even is this year?

Anyway, tree's up, only about 10 days after I'd intended.


I'm now going to see if I can find the original (and only as far as I'm concerned) How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and eat the first Mandarin orange of the season.

Hope the rest of you have been keeping as well as you can. I may or may not sing at you this year, but either way, not tonight.

I have found my tea kettle and tea pot (only a month and a half after moving :-P) and am having tea.

The migraine from yesterday didn't drag on for too long so I got a tiny bit of organizing and unpacking done, as well as some messing about on the internet. The kettle and tea pot were in a box with some bowls and other things I already had one of out and in use, so I kept thinking, "I'll just leave that. If I unpack more bowls etc I'll just let them pile up in the sink instead of washing them."

The water at the new place makes tolerable tea, though I'm still not sure about the tea bags I'm currently using. A pot of tea will probably keep me awake later from caffeine this late in the day, but oh well. TEA! \o/

I've got 12 hours to pack up things and clean/wash/launder things so I can pack them and I'm at the "stare at thing I need to do and think of 15 other things I need to do first and end up not doing anything useful". In 12 hours I have to be loading all my crap on the truck. And sometime in there I should sleep some. I guess. AAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!

On the up side, the internet is supposed to be getting hooked up right after I move, or possibly during if the Tech shows up when he's said he might.

ETA: it's 4AM. I need to get some sleep.
list of things I need to do by noon PDTCollapse )

It'll all get done because it has to. But it will require some loud music and inadvisable amounts of caffeine.

Right, so, I am moving in a week and am just realizing exactly how much crap I have to do yet, plus the regular weekly survival crap. Hence, list.

Current Music: Mission Impossible Theme

Got a call and a vague yet urgent message from the property manager at quarter after 8 AM today. Spent 90 minutes fending off a panic attack trying to get hold of him to find out what was going on, because his phone line was going to the answering service until 9 am, and then he was not in the office and I had to wait for a callback.

The landlord is putting the place on the market. I need to take time off work to let a realtor in to take pictures of the place, and then more time off work to let random people wander around in it whenever they feel like it. I've been through this crap twice before and the situation pretty much triples my regular anxiety levels. I really don't need that, especially considering tax season is in more than full swing and I'm already drowning trying to keep up with the crap at work.

In short, I'm probably going to move rather than put up with this bullshit again. Somehow.

Happy freaking birthday. :-P


In other news, I see some much happier birthday greetings in my inbox! Thank you guys, I'll be reading and responding to you later tonight probably. :-)

So, some dork pulled the fire alarm in the apartment I live in, and not seeing or smelling any overt signs of fire, this is what I grabbed.Collapse )

"10 Minutes at Nubble Light House" by Hank Green of YouTube is lovely and relaxing. It's just a sunset, a lighthouse, and gentle waves.

I found this fascinating. I'd heard of most of these things before but not really how some of them worked. Good reference for writing or roleplaying things involving historical ocean travel.

An Unaltered Version Of The Original Star Wars Trilogy May Be Released This Year

OH HOLY CRAP YES PLEASE!

To my knowledge they’ve never had a DVD release of the unaltered originals. I have the VHS set of the remastered but not CGI-added movies released in 1997-ish, a set which has been one major reason I have been trying to get a working VCR for the past year.

Bluray? DVD? BRING IT!! \o/
