Food - Chocolate Flake

Beauty (Oceanstorme's) and Idiocy (Mine).

When penghuin and I were moving things in my room last night as he worked on my super spiffy lighting, I saw the gorgeous print of a photo that oceanstorme sent to me and realized that the thank-you post to her that I'd so carefully planned out was never actually written. I am an idiot.

oceanstorme, it is even more beautiful in person than it was on the screen, and I absolutely love it. It's just waiting for a frame before it goes up on my wall, and I cannot wait. Thank you so much! I am so excited.

I am also hopeful that you will forgive me for being a complete flake.

Fun With Polls.

I take the MBLEx this evening, and I'm all nervous and in need of distraction and entertainment. Help me, my little FriendBots.

LiveJournal

O hai, LiveJournal.

I don't post here so much anymore, do I? I keep saying that I'm going to, and it keeps not happening. I know a lot of my FriendBots have drifted from LiveJournal to Facebook or (*gag*) MySpace, but even though I play on Facebook a lot, that's really not what's happened with me. Mostly, it's that I used to do most of my LiveJournaly stuff during downtime at my 8-to-5 job, and I haven't had one of those in, oh, well over a year. Also, there's not a whole hell of a lot going on to post about. I don't want to read about how I studied for my MBLEx again today, so I'm fairly certain no one else does, either. And then there's the fact that I'm now about a squillion hours behind most of the rest of the country and am therefore most likely to post long after the rest of you 8-to-5ers have gone home for the day, and there hasn't seemed much point.

It makes me strangely sad. I love LiveJournal. My FriendBots are mostly people I've known, at least online, for years. It isn't that I think I know you the way I would a best friend from elementary school, but still, I've seen glimpses of your lives changing, day after day, in some cases for eight years. Eight years. That's a long time. And I miss you guys.

So. Do I just keep quietly reading? Or do I post a whole bunch of nothing important in an effort to maintain the FriendBot interaction that has made LiveJournal such a source of joy for me? I have no idea. I just know that I don't want to lose what LiveJournal has been to me, even though with all the drifting away to Facebook and similar, it seems a losing battle.

Aaaand I have no idea where I was going to go from here.

Maybe Monday I'll post an Ask Me/Tell Me and see what happens.
