First and foremost, a request for Dreamwidth account names - I suspect that more of you than I currently follow on the DW side actually have accounts, and I want to make sure I'm connected with all of you. (If you're more comfortable just adding [personal profile] kshandra and sending me a PM to let me know who you are/were on LJ, that's fine, too; I just want to be sure I know who everyone is.)

Next, a couple of pointers for journals/communities you should perhaps be following - [community profile] lj_refugees on the DW side, [ profile] rollback88 on the LJ side.

Finally, from [personal profile] argylepiratewd in [community profile] lj_refugees, a friending meme.

Edit: But wait, there's more! Thanks to [personal profile] musyc for sharing the following:

[personal profile] rydra_wong is hosting the Giant Community Rec-o-matic Post, for users to help each other find interesting comms. (Also [site community profile] dw_community_promo to advertise comms and [community profile] create_my_comm to suggest comms you'd like to see but don't have time to make/run.)

Yesterday's assessment went really well. [personal profile] gridlore came with me, and was a marvel - volunteering information when I was trying to clarify or had obvious mental blocks (like the fact that I was predominantly raised by my great-grandmother, who was a single mother of two during the Great Depression, and as such had her own set of Issues about food), without making it seem like this was all his idea and I was just along for the ride. The psych who did the assessment is going to talk with my primary physician, get some corroborating information, start pounding on my insurance company, and then circle back to me next week so we can set a game plan.

And then Doug and I went to dinner, and he had two huge beers (probably three pints' worth in two glasses)...and once he was drunk he gave me the most amazing pep talk, talking about how very proud he is of me for doing this, and how he knows I'm going to be fucking well terrified at points, but that he'll be there to support me, and so will all my friends, and how he knows I can do this because I'm so bloody GOOD at everything I set my mind to - when I can just. fucking. STOP sabotaging myself.... He probably went on for twenty minutes, including acknowledging at least once that he had deliberately gotten himself this drunk because he knew he couldn't have said half of it to me otherwise, and I cried a lot and laughed more than a little and we held hands and smiled like fools and it was absolutely everything I could have hoped for.

And then we took a leisurely drive home so we could look at Christmas lights, including the one house up the road from us that I really ought to get pictures of because my GOD it's unreal. How you get that many lights on a single-story house that can't be over 1000 square feet, I can't tell you. (Though it does involve giving up the use of the garage for the month so they can put a display in the driveway. I kid you not.)

by way of [ profile] karaokegal:

Based on what I post, what would you get me for Christmas?

(I just wish y'all weren't on opposite sides of the same state....)
