I have a bunch more stuff to post in an "official" blog post, but this one is just for LJ. Official blog post is going to wait till tomorrow. It will have a rum cocktail and possibly some other things. Who knows?!
Anyway, these are the things for LJ!
1) I have been incrementally going back through my LiveJournal and making a lot of posts that used to be friends-only public. I've also been making a lot of posts that were on special special filters into friends-only posts. I think I have done from December 2001 when I started this LJ up to halfway through 2005. Sound like fun? I think it does. I tried to be careful not to make posts public if people who commented shared personal information, but mostly these weren't very deeply personal posts, I just, for various reasons pertaining to my own personal life at the time, locked a lot of things I would never dream of locking now. I don't know that anyone would ever want to trawl through my LJ, but if you want to see things like entertaining poems I wrote when I was 15, or pictures of me and liret dressed as pirates, these things are free and open to the public now!
2) It's that time of year again when I clean out my closet because I am getting out my summer clothes and packing up my winter ones. So I have a huge pile of clothes I would like to get rid of, and some shoes. The shoes are mostly 8 or 8 1/2 with a couple 7 1/2 and a couple 9s and mostly heeled. The clothing is mostly a size 6 or a size small/medium, with some 4s, some 8s, and one or two 10s. If anyone is curious about clothes, let me know and I can take pictures of stuff or just send you a surprise box. I also have various Betty Boop and Popeye items for the discerning whatever you are. As always, the only charge is whatever it costs to ship, and if you can't afford that, please just let me know privately.
3) Most of you probably don't know this, but I quit drinking coffee when I was 17. I was at the point where I needed two 20 oz thermoses of it a day just to function (I preferred caffeine to sleep in those days), and I realized this was bad, so I quit. In the past fifteen years, I have had maybe a few Starbucks-style frozen gooey coffee drinks, a couple of really good cappuccinos in Italy, and that is pretty much the extent of my coffee drinking. But now with my asthma so bad, I've been trying to slurp up a lot of caffeine because it helps. And I'm concerned about drinking so much soda because of all the sugar (also it makes your mouth taste gross after a while), so I actually drank more iced coffee this weekend than I think I have had in the past fifteen years. Anyway, I'm thinking about getting a French press, so I can make coffee at home and electric coffee pots just confuse me. I would like to enlist you all to suggest coffees. I would like ones that come already ground, coarse ground of course for the press, and prefer fair trade/rainforest friendly.
4) I wrote a story for LJ Idol this week. First, I wrote this entry, and then I had to revise it, and I revised it into a very different story.
As always, there is a poll where you can read all the entries (there are only 16) and vote. Please consider dropping me a vote! I am the_vernacular.
The poll is open until Wednesday.
theafaye also did this really sweet thing for all the people still in the game. It's a place to leave nice messages for all of us. It's right here, in case you've been following along and would like to say something. I'm going to try to, as soon as I finish up some work that needs doing!
<3 <3 everybody! Have a wonderful week! Mine starts tomorrow on account of a holiday for Memorial Day today.
