Keeping a paid account, that is. I mean, I just checked to see when I last made a post, and it's been nearly two years. Yet I've happily allowed LJ to charge me $18.15 a year for a paid account for I don't know how many years now. On the other hand, now that I've been reminded that LJ exists (due to the email reminder about my paid account extension) perhaps I will manage to put things here more often.

I think I need a medium with more space for loquaciousness. I keep meaning to spend more time writing in my paper journal, but I'm not getting that done. It takes too much time (I can't write fast enough to keep up with my thoughts), and for some reason people are invasive about the idea of someone writing in a notebook. However, I now have this fancy new laptop and homework that requires I use said laptop on a regular basis. Perhaps between the two things pointing me toward my big screen of clearly defined pixels and fast new processor, I will have the impetus to use this thing. Not to mention, I realize I miss it. I doubt many people read such things anymore, and that's all right. I will prefer this website's makeup to the other selections out there indefinitely. I suspect part of that is that I have no desire to explore such things anymore, and the other part is the fact that I've kept this damn LJ for nigh on a decade. Why change now!

After 8 years with the same password and no security issues regarding this journal, the folks at LJ finally decided to let me know that they thought my password was too easy. I find this hilarious. Of course, recognizing that they were correct in their assessment, I have changed my password to something a little more challenging. Hooray protocols. Now it will be slightly more difficult for some asshat to hack my livejournal.

Now as long as no one hacks the keychain in my browser...

I have no idea why I saved this next bit; perhaps because I liked the poem. It's a photocopy out of a book. I have no idea what book, but I'm assuming it's an anthology of some sort. This poem apparently appears on page 27 (as denoted in the upper right hand corner of my copy).

Proletarian in Abstract Light )

As an aside... formatting this to make it appear as it does on my photocopy caused me to learn a new-to-me html tag in order to make indentation happen. Neat!

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance -- particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0, NBA 3.0, and Golf Clubs 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do?

Signed, Desperate


Dear Desperate:

First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an Operating System.

Please enter the command: 'I Thought You Loved Me.exe', try to download Tears 6.2 and don't forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5. But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-law 1.0 It runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources. Also, do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Food 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck, Tech Support

Lost my phone at the club tonight. I have no idea how I managed to do it.

I feel so goddamned irresponsible.
And pissed off... and frustrated... and generally disappointed.

I've already had to replace my phone twice in the last six months due to technical failures. Now I get to replace it due to being a dumb ass as a result of once again not listening to my intuition (which had told me to leave the phone at home).

Every time I think I'm getting somewhere with my finances I have some unexpected expense that leaves me back at square one (i.e. breaking even instead of being a bit ahead).

At least I get paid tomorrow. I can go buy a new phone.

I finally got my backlight fixed... My computer is mobile once more.

I can now not only save paper but take better notes (type faster than I write).

Hooray for updating from somewhere other than home.

After noticing the various bits of recyclable material throughout my neighborhood that were left at the curbside, I finally figured out what it was all about. Just when I thought recycling in Albuquerque was a hassle, I realized how easy it can be. Thought I would share the link with the info.

Residential Curbside Recycling

There are also various sites throughout the city where it is possible to drop off the recyclables.

Now makes me due for a massive update--especially after the 15 day vacation. Unfortunately, I have just spent the last hour catching up on reading what everyone else has had to say, so it will have to wait. But for those of you who were wondering/informed/whatever I am safely back in the Burque.

I would like to say for the record however: had I had access to a decent computer and decent net connection simultaneously I would have posted something in the last 3 weeks. Alas, no. Therefore, the next thing you see from me will be horrendously long and behind a cut (cause yeah, not everyone cares what I did in my wanderings of the last three weeks).

Catch you kids on the flip side!

So my addiction to user pics has me contemplating the plus account, but I'm not sure I want to deal with stupid advertising things popping up everywhere in my LJ experience.

I guess I could go paid if I wasn't such a cheap ass. But yeah, I am. At least about things that require a monthly payment but are supposed to be a means of recreation.

I'm still kicking myself for not finding the money to get a permanent account when they were selling them a couple years ago.

*kicks self again for good measure*

So I've spent the last hour or so at Blue Dragon catching up on email and LJ and all the usual internet shit. God I hate having to do this in a coffee shop, but still haven't managed to make the internet go in the new house. Somewhere in the move I lost the power cord to the WAP, which means I need to get a different sort of ethernet cable or something. I don't know... not my department.

Anyway... I've read some, skimmed others, and skipped yet others completely. And now, after having managed to sit peacefully in my chair for over an hour, the grouping of seats right in front of me has decided to fill itself with Hot Topic Clones circa age 15. Please shoot me. But yeah, despite seeming to focus on the negative aspects of my situation, I'm in a rather good mood. Just a tad cynical at the moment.

To actually talk about something that matters... Read more... )

Mighty Mouse

Finally, the excuse for not using Mac based on its single button mouse is put to shame!!

What's your excuse now?

So I finally came across a chat client like Trillian but for Mac. It's called Adium. I like it a lot. Has all sorts of fancy features and downloadable dock icons and whatnot.

So yay!

Me gustaria a verte ahorita, pero no puedo. No se donde estas, y esta bien. Todavia, esto cambia nada.

And now, we change from the telenovela...
Negligee is a great word. I just can't spell it. Hey, do any of you kids know how to insert accents over letters here in LJ? That would be some useful information for me.

Hmm... yeah, this is turning out to be a pointless entry. So goes the war.

I must go buy pants and shoes and various other articles of clothing now. Catch you kids on the flip side.
