Forgot to mention yesterday – fresh kittens in the neighborhood. I think Tuxedo-kitty is the father, and one of the “cimnim” kitties is the mama.
No matter how stony-hearted I can get… baby kittens melt it pretty quickly. (Kittens are good for discipline and mind control, as anyone who’s watched Hyperdrive can tell you.)
See also, Obama with a Kitty as running mate. (Personally, I’d like to see Kcarab Amabo, AKA The Evil Mirror Universe Barack Obama join in the festivities. )
My livejournal account is 8 years old today.
I didn’t really get to posting daily until 8/2000, but 9284 posts in 8 years is pretty surprising to me. Something like 3 posts a day, give or take.
Some had a lot more content than others, of course.
In 8 years… a lot has happened. If you’d have told me then that I would still be doing this now, I’d probably have doubted it. The LJ community as a whole has changed hands a few times. The service has been a great boon to me.
I met my wonderful wife on livejournal…. and more than a couple of other new and delightful people from around the world in person as a result, too.
I reconnected with friends that I thought were long lost – both from gaming groups and high school.
I’ve pretty thoroughly documented my 30s here. Walkabouts, musings, dating, work – there’s not much about me that you can’t find here… some things are privatized or friends-only security, but the vast majority is open to the world. I sometimes wonder if that’s a good idea, but it’s worked well for me so far.
I tend to keep my really rough rants or personal lists (shopping for presents and reminders, mostly) to myself. I also used to archive chats here, before google talk; which automatically does it now. I’m guessing there weren’t many – maybe 20 or 30, tops.
I’m not really online much for chatties these days, but here and there you might catch me, dear journal. (Gmail checks, generally) my profile page has a list of assorted locations to look me up.
Adam’s in Haiti, doing more missionary work – he sounds all right, there were a lot of concerns for his safety. Funny that nobody raised safety issues when he went to Guatemala last year.
a bulk email he sent out –
glad to hear he’s aok! I suspected as much.
