I'm currently reading both my LJ f'list and my DW Reading page on a daily basis. As I have a number of you added on both sites, this means I'm seeing a considerable amount of duplicate posts right now. If you have accounts on both LJ and DW with crossposting enabled, I will be removing you from my LJ reading filter (though not removing you from my f'list). I realize this means I'll be missing a lot of the conversation going forward, but I have enough trouble keeping up with my various social networks as it is.

...I've unlocked my journal again. There are enough people I need to try and keep up-to-date right now that crossposting between LJ and FB is the easiest way to make that happen.

There were parts of 2007 that I'd gladly trade in for a cheap car and push it over a cliff. There were parts that I wouldn't trade for all the riches in the world. For 2008, I think (as do many of you, considering how often I've seen it already) that Neil says it best:

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't to forget make some art-- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

Doing some cleanup on my f'list today; my guidlines for what I cut and when are on my userinfo page if you're not familiar with them. As always, if reading me is no longer a priority in your life, feel free to drop, though if you're someone I know in meatspace I would like it if you drop me a line to let me know what's up.

They're taking the intarwebs away at my current assignment (from anyone who doesn't actually need it for their job, not just me), which means no LJ, no 10@10, and no email during the day...and until we manage to get our networking issues squared away at home (I've had several offers for tech support; [livejournal.com profile] gridlore and I just need to finish cleaning the sty apartment so whoever does the job doesn't break zir neck walking in the door), I probably won't be getting online until somewhere in the 8-9pm vicinity during the week.

This will, of course, have a dramatic affect on my ability to comment in a timely fashion - if, in some cases, at all. If you need my input on something, email me the link so I'm certain to actually see it, and please be patient.

In other news, Pride was lovely. I didn't actually get to the festival, but I managed to see the entire parade for the first time in years (and those two statements are even more directly connected than they appear - standing for four hours, even in weather as gorgeous as SF had yesterday, gets uncomfortable fast). I met up with the CryptoFishist (Scott's widow) early, and we watched the parade together, blowing kisses to the Medical crew whenever they came by (and weren't obviously responding to a call). I got some good pictures, but forgot to bring extra batteries with me for the camera, so I didn't get as many as I might have liked. [livejournal.com profile] tattycat, I did manage to get a kiss from a hot babe - it was a Hershey Kiss, alas, and I neglected to get a picture of the blonde who gave it to me, but I'd be happy to send you the wrapper as your requested proof. ;-)

Whoever said "face" or "forearms" in the Annual Sunburn Pool (because it isn't officially Pride until I've burned something) can collect your No-Prizes now. More painful, however, was the faceplant I took in the parking lot at Diridon Station when I got off the train coming home; much like last year, I turned an ankle on an uneven patch of pavement, and went down in slow-motion with a full backpack and multiple witnesses. :-P Said witnesses all asked if I was okay; one offered me a ride, for which I was truly grateful even though I didn't need it (I was about 10 slots away from where Sammi was parked when I went down). Much more road rash this year than last (I was wearing shorts), and the muscle aches have been making themselves increasingly known today. But at least it happened at the end of the day this time, rather than in the middle.

I just did a sizeable f'list edit - I've been realizing over the last several weeks that there are a lot of people that I just haven't developed a connection to here, and as such I'm skimming your entries when you post. (Yes, I realize that's rather a vicious cycle. If you have suggestions on how to break that, I'm all ears.) And as I don't believe in "default view" filters, I figure it's simpler all the way around to just cut the people I'm not reading any longer.

AS ALWAYS, THIS IS NOT PERSONAL. If you feel I've made an error, please email me and we can talk about it. (This is a paid account; kshandra-at-LJ gets to me.) Feel free to drop me in return, if that's the way you wish to handle it. Indeed, if you've been thinking the same thing about my journal, go right ahead and drop me whether or not I've dropped you - it's always f'list amnesty day around these parts.

Comments disabled, as I don't want this to turn into a "Hooray, I made the cut!"fest.

Just because I stay awake far later than I should does not mean I'm prepared to talk to anyone. Moreover, [livejournal.com profile] gridlore's alarm goes off at 0530, and for the sake of my marriage I prefer not to wake him after he goes to bed unless the house is on fire.

We now return you to your previously scheduled LJ.
