Still here

It's a funny time on LiveJournal right now. I've been watching fandom explode/implode over the recent TOS issues, and haven't felt like speaking up. While I understand why it's shaken a lot of people, I've found the frenzy at times... well, embarrassing is probably the best way to put it. I guess one of the reasons I don't have much to say is because I'm not particularly surprised by the behaviour from LJ/6A.

While I've read many well measured responses to the whole thing, the three posts on the matter that I have most enjoy are as follows:
- [ profile] rivkat pointed out the hypocrisy in mainstream American culture (with reference to Smallville specifically)
- [ profile] mskatej talked sense as usual.
- [ profile] cesperanza called people on their bullying tactics.

Am I going to migrate elsewhere? Not if I can help it. However, I have backed up the contents of my LJ at insanejournal. I'm going to try cross-posting there for a while. I have a greatestjournal too but I don't use it. It's just for emergencies. :) I can't honestly imagine keeping up with multiple f'lists so I really hope we settle down somewhere--preferably here--sooner rather than later.

For me, the most important thing is to keep on enjoying what we do and the relationships we've built here. I've found myself disinclined to post recently because everyone is in such high angst, but if we stop posting fun fannish stuff, we'll only be defined by the screaming, the in-fighting, the bullying and the hysteria. That's not what I'm here for. So this is my little pledge to start posting more regularly again.

now for some completely random girlish squee about clothes-buying )

Note: I will probably do a little clean-up of my friendslist in the next couple of days. I'll only defriend where interests have diverged or we don't interact, and if you want back on, as always, pipe up.

Today is a good day. I am not dead in a tunnel. And I have a new layout, thanks to [ profile] occasionalburst (aka [ profile] mailerose) and have cleaned up my tags. Woot! Also, there is SV to watch when I get home... *watches the clock*

New banner

I was going to wait until my LJ Anniversary to post my new banner. But soon I'm going to be all about Project Smallville! Whee!

So sneaking in just before then... Huge props to [ profile] tehjules who helped me make this banner just perfect. It's a still from the movie 'Tideland'. I love it to death. It makes me happier than chocolate!

And a quick reminder that anyone and everyone is invited to write what they like about SV or the fandom for [ profile] toadstoolsmiles's Super Sekrit Post to launch Project Smallville: The Countdown. Go here to record your love for posterity!

(Aside: Ach! I do NOT want to 'update captain's log'! This whole pirate day thing has made me realise that I prefer ninjas... consider this my coming-out statement!)

new stuff

I have a moodtheme! It comes courtesy of the extremely talented [ profile] crackified. And I have new icons! And I've changed the text on my page to random hilarious Mikey quotes. And this amuses me.

Unfortunately, I still don't have a brain. Grrr... painkillers.

Ta Da!!!

My day is delighting me so far. Not only do I have *even more* paid LJ time (THANK YOU!!!), but with [ profile] nehellania's help, I finally got my banner up. It turned out to be embarrassingly simple - for anyone but me. *blush*

Anyway - please admire, please admire! This banner was made by the delightfully talented and generous [ profile] fandom_girl.

These are the things I love about it:
1. The colours (I love reds and blues).
2. How Michael and Tommy both have quizzical 'this girl seems a bit crazy... why is she saying these things about us?' expressions on their faces. Hee!
3. It includes Michael's "love" look to Tommy - middle panel.
4. It includes Tom looking divine yet spaced out and sporting a pimple (awww... he's human!).
5. It includes Michael looking spunky in his Good Shirt.

Wheee!! Thank you, Jules! Thank you, Jen!

Dear Anonymous Person who gifted me LJ time and userpics,


I am totally overwhelmed. Ummm... it's not even Christmas yet. Or my birthday. But WOW and THANK YOU!

Whoever you are, may beautiful things come your way and may you find happiness.

My day (well, my night actually) just lit up with joy!

Thank you
