Cleanup.

I've removed some people - only those who haven't been seen or heard from on LJ in forever, OR those with whom I consistently have zero interaction. If you come back to LJ and want to be added back, just tell me. :)

And if you're lurking (although it's pretty ineffective since my only public entries are my book lists), this is a good time to make yourself known! :)

I just spring-cleaned (summer-cleaned?) my LJ and cut a few people who haven't posted or commented in a REALLY long time. If you come back and want me to add you back, just comment. If you're new and want me to add you, speak up. :)

Thanks!

Can anyone recommend a community for creative writing exercises? The kind where they give you an idea or a scenario, some sort of jumping-off point? Anyone know what I mean? I've seen blogs like that, but it would take time to find them again and I'd probably forget to visit anyway. If I had ideas on my friends page, I'd be more likely to actually do something.

Thanks. :)

I'm making a public post to announce that my friend MaryElaine has four white rabbits who need a good home. If she doesn't find homes for them within a few weeks, she will have to euthanize them. :( (I can't believe she actually told me that, but she did and now I have the burden of knowledge.) I can't take any of them - they will not do well in a small apartment with two cats. So please, if any of you local people are interested in taking one, e-mail me. And pass the word along.

I hadn't run one of these reports in a long time, so I was curious...

It's been a year and a half since I made my journal mostly friends-only. It was something I didn't want to do, but right around the time I got married, I started receiving freaky, disturbing comments from an anonymous person. He or she said upsetting things about my husband and our relationship. At first I disabled all anonymous comments, but the more I thought about it, the more I didn't want this creep knowing anything about me, him, where we lived, etc. And who knew how many other scary people were out there, gathering information and not saying anything. The experience totally robbed me of my security, and I retreated behind the curtain.

For the most part, I think friends-only has been a good thing for me. I've felt a lot more free to speak my mind than I did in the public days, and I have the peace of knowing (well, as much as you can know) that no one is reading my journal for nefarious purposes. :) But lately I've been wishing that I could be more open, and wondering if I have any nice lurkers that I'm not getting to know because of the friends-only thing. I think a lot of it depends on posting style. I generally write longer, multi-topic posts, and I don't think I've ever topped three in a day. Some of my LJ friends are the multiple two-sentence "Oh my gosh, did you hear _____ died?" or "It's snowing!" posting type, and I enjoy that. But it's generally not my style. So I very rarely do public posts, because there's almost always something in my posts that I would not want Creepy and his kind to know. :) Yet at the same time I feel kind of snobby for being that way.

I don't know. Probably no one cares. But I felt like explaining to the public why there appears to be nothing but book lists and holiday greetings on my main page. :)

Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much. Here are my answers. )

The majority of my entries from now on will be friends-only. I'm hoping this will only be a temporary measure. I hoped I'd never have to do this, but we live in a sick world. :( If you'd like to be added, please comment. Thanks.

Happy birthday, radiojediShawna!

Wedding presents are starting to roll in. Recently we have received Friends season 7 from Lawson - I was beyond excited when we opened it - and a spice rack from Robin. It was one of my favorite registry items, and, against my own rules, it's already set up in the kitchen. There will be pictures of it when I do my photo tour of the apartment. Thank you again, guys! I won't talk about presents much since it's probably uncouth, but I was really happy about both of those. :)

I have soooo much to do this weekend. This is my last free Friday night before the wedding - eek! I really want to go to a movie thing that Kati mentioned, but I just can't. I have to paint the bathroom; do some closet/drawer reorganization; buy, address, and mail rehearsal dinner invitations; call Evan's mom about the final menu for said dinner; help my mom make the reception table centerpieces; call all the people who haven't RSVPed; decide whether or not to buy disposable cameras for reception tables; call the country club lady, since she apparently doesn't check the e-mail address on her business card; find dripless candles. Also, find and buy Evan's Xbox and play special music at church on Sunday. My head is going to blow off.

My new co-worker is really nice and we seem to have a lot in common. This morning we were discussing lame Christmas presents, and discovered that we have both received Car Emergency Kits from our parents for Christmas. You know, the kind that looks like a lunchbox and has weird things in it like an aluminum blanket to keep warm in subzero temperatures. It was hilarious. (Another year, my sole birthday present from my parents was Car Care For Dummies. How exciting. Yep...God sent me a mechanical genius for a reason!)

By the way, Evan posted in his LJ the other day! That brings his journal to a grand total of six entries. LOL. For some reason his post didn't show up, so he was puzzled when I didn't say anything to him about it. I was like, "Oh my gosh, my fiance isn't on my default view?" It was on my friends page later that day, though, so I don't know what that was about. Maybe the servers themselves were shocked to see him posting.
