I'm still here. I know I haven't been posting hardly at all lately, but I just really haven't had much to say. And in a lot of ways, I feel like maybe I've...outgrown this journal? I don't know if "outgrown" is really the right word. I'm not ready to say "no more LJ ever again". And I'm not deleting anything. But I doubt I'll be posting much. I still read, as much as I'm able. This new job has been kicking my ass. In a good way. And my attention has just drifted elsewhere. *shrug*

And there's a lot of history here, over 7 years of my life, the triumphs and the tragedies and everything are all here. And sometimes I feel like all that history is weighing me down. The last year of my life has been like one long slow press of a reset button. It's not been easy to finally let it up, but I think I'm finally at peace with everything that's happened in the last few years.

I'm still going to be around, and I'll still comment here and there. And I may even post once in a blue moon. I make no promises, though. I think this is a good stopping point, though. When it's calm and quiet, and I'm in a peaceful frame of mind. My account is paid up through February, but I won't be renewing it. It was a good run, though. :)

And according to my stats, this makes entry #2,599. That's a lot of yammering at the internet since September of 2003. I'm surprised I didn't run out of steam long before now.

Not much left to say except that's all folks. I'll be around. :)

As others have said and or threatened bodily harm about, I keep LJ and Facebook separate for a reason. Please do not crosspost any of my posts and/or comments over there. If I want something I've posted over there, I'll do it my damn self, thank you very much. Don't make me have to hurt you. I have a car now, and I've made unexpected asskicking trips for less.

Look what I found! Moo hoo ha ha. :D

This is a beautiful story that I think everyone should read.

Things I Learned From Holly by [livejournal.com profile] theuglyvolvo

Is it sad that so far today, my biggest cause for joy is having my smartassness recognized on [livejournal.com profile] ljdq?

Well, it's got to be good for something. :p

What the hell happened to [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily? It seems to have gotten sucked into oblivion during my time in the dark. And does anyone know of an equivalent? I miss my crack.

Just so I have something positive (and not weird) to post about today. And I'm just really happy my contacts aren't giving me any problems *crosses fingers*

It's still Batwoman, but this was posted up on [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily and I loooove it. :D

Cut for big (but pretty) picture... )

I was sitting here half awake clicking on the StumbleUpon button trying to find some brain stimulation, and it brought me back to my LJ. Specifically, the bacon ice cream post.

I'm not sure whether to pat myself on the back or what. *laughs* Did one of you guys submit it? Cause I sure didn't.

ETA: Oh yeah, looking helps! It was [livejournal.com profile] cevaq. Thanks, doll! :D

....and booze.

Vote DeathBoy! For the LJ Advisory Board Nominations!
dextra: (Judge me all you want)
I'm about to run out the door, but I wanted to get this out of my system before I do. The boycott is bullshit. It won't accomplish anything. And those of you who are being all smug and think you're accomplishing something by "supporting a cause"? You're not accomplishing shit. It's a business, not a fucking democracy.

You know, back in 2003 (OMG! Ancient times!) when I joined LJ, there were NO basic accounts. There were no Plus accounts. There was paid, and free, if you were lucky enough for a paid user to give you an invite. Which I was. [livejournal.com profile] lepetitemort sent me an invite under the behest of my big lil bro, [livejournal.com profile] anonymous_jones. A few months to a year or maybe longer later (I don't fucking know, nor do I care), they opened up free accounts. Ok, fine. But after a year of having a free account, I started paying for it. Because I like the service. And quite frankly, I think that was a bad idea, because it opened up the floodgates to trolls and other such online annoyances, like bots and spammers.

But you know what? I got over it. Just like you'll get over it. I've reminded people a lot in the last week or so that LJ wasn't always a free service, and some of them either didn't remember, or think I'm full of shit. Know your history before you open your mouth. I care about LJ, I really do. I've invested money in it, and I don't do that online unless I believe it's truly worth it. I'm also a snide bitch, and I plan on posting just as much tomorrow as I normally do. Maybe even more so, just to be an asshole. Hell, I read on another community that [livejournal.com profile] statements is going to try for 9,000 posts tomorrow.

Your rights. You keep using those words. I do not think they mean what you think they mean. Rights are something that you get as an American (or Canadian or Australian or UK or whatever) citizen. LJ is a business. THEY have a right to conduct business however they see fit. YOU have a right to decide whether or not you feel this is a business you want to frequent. Protesting over your ability to use a service for free that hasn't even always been free, well that's just rather silly, don't you think?

This layout I threw together last night looked great on my laptop. Looks like shit on my work computer. Oh well. I get too used to the higher resolution on the laptop as opposed to what most other people use. But I love that background image. I'll have to use it for something else.

I'm getting ready to change all this out to something that I'll actually be able to read. :p So I'll just stick this here for the people that will see this later and go "WTF is she talking about?"

Pretty new layout that caters to my inner pyromaniac. Awesome.

Someone just sent me mistletoe and kisses. OK. Which one of you wants to give me some lovin? :D

Don't be shy! I only bite a little!
dextra: (mad with power)
Went ahead and got a paid account, if for no other reason than to show off more icons at any given time. And I'm gonna make my journal even prettier. And...I'm just a dork.

For those of you who don't have [livejournal.com profile] metaquotes on your friends list (and you should, really you should):

[livejournal.com profile] flickgc did a LJ blackout-relevant take on American Pie, here.
