Okay, LJ seems to be gradually getting back up to speed after the server move. I sent an email post while it was out, no clue if it'll go through or not. Anyway, I'm working my way back through about four days' worth of Friends list, so I'm gonna be here a while. Thought it might be easier to keep a second window up and post updates as stuff inspires me, so...

First up, from filkertom - oohh, seventies!

The Movie Of Your Life Is An Indie Flick

You do things your own way - and it's made for colorful times.
Your life hasn't turned out how anyone expected, thank goodness!

Your best movie matches: Clerks, Garden State, Napoleon Dynamite

I've tried to watch Clerks twice, both times got really bored with it after 10-15 minutes and changed the channel. Maybe it's funnier if you watch it with someone instead of alone. Haven't seen either one of the other two, no interest in them whatsoever.

And one from thndrstd

In a Past Life...

You Were: A Friendly Magician.

Where You Lived: Israel.

How You Died: Buried alive.

The boys would absolutely love these things - colored bubbles! Not the usual rainbow-tinged clear soap bubbles, but bubbles in bright non-staining colors. Gonna have to keep an eye out for these for our bubble machine.

yarn quiz

Snagged from roina_arwen. This is one yarn I've never used, at least that I can remember using.
You are dishcloth cotton.
You are Dishcloth Cotton.
You are a very hard worker, most at home when
you're at home. You are thrifty and seemingly
born to clean. You are considered to be a Plain
Jane, but you are too practical to notice.

What kind of yarn are you?

just my luck

Figures. I haven't checked my Friends page in three or four days - spent
the past few nights off work in marathon knitting sessions without any
distractions to finish up a pair of socks for a knitalong. Anyway, tonight
I'm all done with the socks and figure on spending most of the night
catching up on LJ.

Nope, not happening. About the time I logged in they took it offline for
some big server move from Seattle to San Francisco. It's supposedly up
now, but *very* sluggish. It keeps timing out before completely loading
one of my Friends pages.

Which is why I'm posting this by email, and hoping it'll actually go

mood: frustrated

Off to bed!

Catching up took longer than I thought - close to six hours, not counting breaks. That's the furthest I've ever had to read back to find an entry I recognized, to skip=680 so nearly 700 entries backlogged. Ugh.

Okay, maybe bathroom first, and put the knitting away to keep Beast from chewing on it, but then definitely heading to bed. Afraid I'll sleep through gaming as it is, but hoping it'll be interesting enough to keep me awake. No clue which game tonight but I like them both.
