So if you buy a paid account at Dreamwidth, what happens after it expires? Will your journal be deleted or can you just continue with a basic account?

[eyes it]

Things goin' okay around these parts, I got a slight raise at work, so that's good times, and I got to leave early today because of low volumes. We had the option to stay but I felt like napping instead. Mmm ... napping.

In other news, it's ... raining?

Oh yeah, the excitement that is my life, she rolls like thunder.

ETA: D'oh! I thought I had registered my OpenID thingy and confirmed my email address, but I guess not :/

Oy, woke up this morning with a headache that still hasn't gone away. Only replace 'this morning' with, uh, about a half hour ago xD I keep having really weird, fucked up dreams, too, what's up with that? Just once I want to have a dream that involves me and Joe Flan enjoying each other's company in quiet solitude, or blasting across the alkali flats in a jet-powered, monkey-navigated.... and so on.

In other news, I have disabled LoudTwitter. After trying it out for a few days, I'm not sure it's really for me, just 'cause it seems like since I rarely post, that's ALL that posts. Erm, if that makes sense. Still not decided if I like the whole Twitter thing or not, although it is better than Facebook (to me), as the messages come right to me as opposed to me having to log onto another site to check it out. Although David Hewlett much amuses hehe.

Also: sorry I haven't gotten to comments, and I'm woefully behind on the flist. I think I've just been feeling 'blah' about things in general lately. But the warm weather, she is a'comin' and hopefully that'll brighten things up in general.

So hay - I'll be the one at the MJ party in sweat pants and a t-shirt, because I just spent three hours at the mall and didn't come away with so much as a PAIR OF JEANS. Because apparently size 16 = "Fuck you, no clothes for you".

Etsy, you have eaten my brain.

I've ordered $40 worth of soap omg.

Q: What will you miss the most about the show?
Jason: Joe.

<333 I swear, these two kill me.

This episode is on Space right now and yes - Rodney is all sorts of kick ass in this, but I'm surprised by how much I'm loving Elizabeth in it. I remember liking her the first time around in this episode, but it's been a while since I've seen it so I kind of forgot. But I thought she spoke to Rodney with genuine caring and insight and understanding. She really rocked it.

I'm feeling much better now, thank god! Man, being sick sucks ass. I also burnt through all my sicks days for the year and January isn't even over yet [cries]! Ah well, I plan on never being sick again ever, so hopefully it won't be an issue -_-

Also, does anyone know how to make your comments page just look like the regular, default comments page and not whatever you have your journal customized to look like? [shakes fist] I've been told before but that was a while back and now I've forgotten all over again. I poked through my viewing options and and customize your journal, but none of those options look right.

Nothing much going on with me. I'm really looking forward to MJ, it'll be my first real vacation since [ profile] visionshadows and [ profile] iterationzero's wedding, and it'll also be my first fandom con!! I'm vurry excited :>

I hope to see a bunch of you there ^_^

I'm sick. Flu or somethin. I hate being sick, I hate missing work -_____- I haven't been sick in SO DAMN LONG I forgot just what a miserable and pathetic experience it is. I feel all clogged up and achey and sniffly and gross.

Y'all need to see this like right now omg! It's Band from TV performing on Leno a few nights ago and they're so fun and happy! Honestly, smiliest band ever hehe!

Hugh Laurie and Jesse Spencer were great, I thought.

Does anyone know how to download videos off Youtube? I tried the Firefox extension but it didn't give me the high definition version, just some really crappy little one :(

I need to stop watching this show, it always makes me cringe D8 I have a total embarrassment squick, why do I watch this! It's so much better to come into this show when they've weeded all the bad people out, and they're just singing and voting like normal. But I know that won't happen until after weeks of bad auditions, followed by weeks of stringing people along through an agonizing elimination process.

In other news, I have a new mouse and keyboard, they're niiiiifty! The keyboard has illuminated keys! And the mouse is all sleek, and black, and um - bendy. It's totally my John Sheppard mouse xD

I just had a truly spectacular cup of coffee. It was in a gift basket my mom got from work, crème brulée flavoured and oh man, is it wrong to want to fill my bathtub with this stuff and just splash around in it?

I apologize to all the people I just ruined coffee for.

In other news, I really need to catch up on my reading. I keep buying new books without finishing old books and omg, one day I'm going to be discovered dead under a pile of paperbacks that have tipped over and crushed me D: I have a sickness D: D:

But I also have Mitch Albom's One More Day, acquired yesterday, and it's a pretty quick, short read, so it's looking like that's going to be my first finished book of 2009.

I finished Chuck Palahniuk's Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey in early January, but I don't think that should really count since I started it in December.

Thoughts behind cut, some plot details but not really spoilery. )

Mm ... icons.

Cut for cut-y goodness )

It looks like the LJ sky is falling okay, it must be Tuesday xDD

I'm a little more worried this time, then I was, uh, the other times, though - and so I'm actually backing up my LJ as we speak. [ profile] liz_marcs has some great tools to do just that. Dude, I didn't even know you could DO this stuff! It's pretty neat. Like you can transfer all of your LJ posts to another online comm, or you can convert it to a PDF file.

And actually, I just got an error message for LJ Book. I guess a lot of people are backing their stuff up right now.

I'm hoping nothing too bad comes of this, although letting go the majority of your staff isn't too promising. But I love LJ, I've been here since *2001* and ... yeah. [clings]

It's been forever since I posted anything substantial, and I really want to make it a priority this year to keep up to date with my LJ more. I miss reading through each post and commenting like I used to. I just want to say: Happy New Year to all, I hope it's happy, healthy, exciting, fulfilling, and that you get from it whatever it is you strive and wish for. I <3 you guys, my LJ homies :)

My resolutions for this year are:

1. Learn something new.
2. Move upwards in my job.
3. Stick to healthier/smarter habits.
4. Walk the dog more.
5. Read.
6. Stand up for myself.
7. Stop caring so much about what other people think.
8. Make my bed.
9. Drink less pop.
10. Take more risks.
11. Be more social.
12. Don't put myself down (or let others do it for me).

An ambitious list to be sure, but I figure if other people can do it all year-round without it having to be a resolution at all, I can do it, too. I didn't mean to put it in any particular type of order, but looking at it now, I wonder if I kinda did anyway.

I've already sort of completed number 1. I recently ordered this from amazon. It's called "The Memory Book: The Classic Guide to Improving your Memory at School, at Work, and at Play". It's really interesting stuff. My memory's not the best for some things (while incredibly accurate for others), and I thought this might help me out.

One of the exercises in the book is memorizing the 50 States. A while back I tried that name as many states as you can in 10 minutes game, and did ... okay, considering I'm Canadian ;) I think I got about 30-35 within that time frame. Now I can reel off all 50, in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order, in about 3 minutes.

For some reason, I keep forgetting Alabama :|

It basically talks about associating words/things/whatever with pictures. So for "Alabama" I picture a photo album, because "album" sort of reminds me of Alabama. Then you link that picture, to a picture that you can associate with the next State on the list. So I picture the album falling into a snow drift for Alaska.

The goofier the better. Like the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz clutching a bucket of Kentucky fried chicken, or a naked chick with a hunk of cheese on her head standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial xD *

But yes - I definitely recommend checking it out. I'm only into the third chapter but already I find the methods they recommend working. It sticks, too. No forgetting it again in a few days or a week.

And now - I'm off to the mall with my mom. I can hear my final gingerbread latte of the season calling my name.

* For the record, it was Washington -> West Virginia -> Wisconsin :q
