I wanted to change all my ljuser icons to Warcraft 3 icons.

This hack helps in changing ljuser icons. It's impossible to find without some serious Googling.

Age: 21
Country: USA
Subscription/Access Policy: Whatever goes/whatever you feel comfortable with, but please no under 18's.

 Interests:
The X-Files, cats, coffee, aliens, life.

I like to post about: Mulder and Scully and how they are the OTP, occasional personal stuff. I love my cats and if I can figure out how to add a picture, maybe I will. I drink a lot of coffee and I complain about that.

About Me/Other Info: If you Google my name, you will see I have written erotica not related to fandom, penned a movie script, and graduated from HS (lol) I'm queer in some way, still figuring out the specifics, and I'm a liberal. No trumpsters, sexists/racists/homophobes please. As long as you are a nice person I'll be nice back. :) I'm also mentally and chronically ill, so you might see stuff about that but not too much.

 Sparkly and I went to see WWE live with Cube Guy. It was fantastically horrifyingly loud, which I foolishly did not expect-- "They only have music for like 60 seconds at a time when the wrestlers enter at the start of the match, the music is not the main point, it won't be loud," I thought-- well, it was loud, and also they play some of the same advertisements / previews they put on TV on the screens in the arena during breaks. 

Honestly WWE is fascinating and there are so many things to analyze about it, but I'm still kind of tired and I also had a busy day today, so I'll save that for a later date.

 I've had a bit more free time recently, it feels like, so I've been going back to some online housekeeping things that I've been neglecting. I've finished up a few changes I was meaning to make to my Tumblr theme (making each post's tags visible on the main page) and earlier today I went through my "lace reads" tag here and added some more consistent author / series tags to the posts about things I'm reading.

As of 5:00 PM today,

Came home after watching some sci-fi.

Couldn't decide on what to do.

Played some Minecraft and drank coffee.

I'm a 33 year old Scottish woman, trying to get my journal groove back. I'm a mum of three boys from teen to newborn, and work in healthcare but (thankfully) I'm on maternity leave just now. I mainly write about daily life, the struggles and highlights of attempting to adult and parent and be healthy as a highly strung, stressed over-thinker who doesn't like herself most of the time.  

Wow, I sound fun.  Should I mention that there will be wine, gin and chocolate?

I was obsessed with my Livejournal back in the day - I started it back in 2003 and even though I've only dipped in and out of it in recent years, writing is still very much how I make sense of my life and my mind. That's why I'm trying to reignite that obsession I once had...though it's difficult with increasing grown up responsibilities and shrinking time of my own to put pen to paper fingers to keyboard.  But I know I need the chance to record snatches of life as it flies past, and an outlet for when my mental health takes a dive. 

I swear and I like to write no-holds-barred.  I'm very liberal and support choice - be that choice of who you love, choice over your reproductive options, or just the freedom to chose what you're going to watch on telly tonight. I'm doing my Masters in weight management so I try to live healthily through fitness (like dancing and weight training, albeit on a very beginner level) and healthy eating, but more often than not find myself alone amongst the crumbs at the bottom of a packet of biscuits. I'm book obsessed (mainly literary fiction and never fantasy, chick-lit, or much sci-fi), love a good tv series (Mr Robot, Stranger Things, The Handmaid's Tale, OITNB, Top of the Lake and Homeland have been recent highlights), and sometimes I even get out to see friends.  Some or none of this may come out in my writing.

Along with a lack of time, I guess part of why I've lost touch with my journal has been my shrinking friends list.  It's hard to make time to update when it feels increasingly like you're just shouting into a void. So I'd love it if anyone out there who is in a similar place in life or who is into similar things would like to take a punt on my journal.  I wont promise a very active journal but I am going to try, and I'm also going to try and be a good friend in return.

It's a good job I've been with my husband for ten years, because I'd suck at filling out a dating profile.  Feel free to swipe left (or is it right...? I'm not on Tinder).

And I have a thought. AO3 came through so awesomely re: "The Rest Cure"...

Wait, did I ever post about that?

I begin my journey as a graduate student in Computer Science next month.

Today I read Russel at the beach and drank some home-brewed coffee.

I'll be seeing a movie in a half hour.

Joy.

 Good things:

- Did grocery shopping
- Actually cooked a food, and put leftovers in the freezer for later
- Folded some laundry
- Loaded the dishwasher
- Did some work

Ehh things:
- Overall I took a lot of "time off" this week to do chores and other things, so I didn't earn as much as I usually do
- Having bandages on my hands is annoying
- Still more laundry-folding to do
- I also need to clean the kitchen and the litterbox

I wanted to go grocery shopping today, but the temperature was above 90F for most of the day. I thought I'd wait until evening for it to get a bit cooler, and ... it didn't get cooler. It's 85F with 70% humidity right now, at almost 11PM. So I'll go early tomorrow morning, probably. 

I haven't read any more of Abarat lately-- I stopped reading it after I went to the library and renewed it, because I am a silly person. I'm going to try to stop thinking about everything in it in light of the later plot stuff I know about, and just read it for what it is. I don't know if I'll succeed, honestly, but I'll try.

 Argh I just accidentally closed the window without posting, and of course the "autosaved" drafts aren't really retrievable. 

Sparkly went to a ballet class today. Ey took ballet for years when ey was little, and has wanted to get back into it for a while. Ey took a couple of "drop in" classes at a place in Minnesota before we moved, but the teacher was very harsh and the format of the class wasn't actually very conducive to dropping in. 

Anyway, apparently this one went very well! The exercises were mostly things ey is familiar with, and the teacher was funny and friendly. 

Also it's a little more practical than the gymnastics class, because the gymnastics place is way out in the suburbs and this ballet studio is much closer to where we live.

It was a lot of fun! I have not totally lost my sight reading abilities. I learned that the Shenandoah Harmony has a Bunker Hill lookalike with a very different alto part. That threw me for a loop at first.

It may be too soon to really say this, but it seems like the popular songs here are somewhat different than they are in the Midwest. I've sung some new songs from the Denson book too, which is always nice. Also, it's really fun to stand up to lead a song I think of as an old standard, and have it be new to some of the people I'm singing with.

 Today was a chore catch-up day for me. I did a bunch of laundry and some cleaning in the kitchen. Sparkly will be working with some Important People tomorrow and Wednesday, and ey was asked to dress extra nice, so I wanted to make sure ey had plenty of nice clothing clean. Ey also has to get to work earlier than usual, so I should get to bed.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm extremely new to DW but I have been roleplaying for years. This is awkward because I really don't like to talk about myself. I much prefer to immerse myself in whatever I'm writing and keep things mostly IC unless we need to plot. Bandom/celeb RP is my jam and often played Travis McCoy on Livejournal, as well as William Beckett and Justin Bieber. Check out my journal for more info.

Top 5 Fandoms:
2006 Bandom RP Era Music (if that counts as a fandom and yikes that sounds old)
Anime
Harry Potter
True Blood
Tie between Pokemon and Final Fantasy X


I mostly post about: Until I get comfortable here, I may not post about much. I am so used to only using journals IC that I often forget that I can have one for myself.

I rarely post about: Eh I'm an open book once you get to know me OOC. I just prefer to keep posts IC.

My last three posts were about: RP, reconnecting with long lost writing partners, and storylines for my Travie McCoy muse.

How often do you post?: In my personal journal? As needed. If I join a RP community, probably weekly.

How about commenting?: I love commenting and interacting, for sure.

Hello! Like many people, I'm a longtime Livejournaler who's working on making the switch over to Dreamwidth. But I've had my journal there since 2001--that's pretty much my entire adult life! Change is hard! In order to help me shift my focus over here instead of over there, I'd like to see if I can establish a more active group of DW-friends. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my journal.

About me:
My name is Katie, I'm 38, I'm queer, and I'm female. I'm a writer and writing tutor by profession (I write fiction and book reviews; I tutor high school students and beginning creative writers). I grew up in the Hudson Valley in New York State, and currently live in Philadelphia. I live in a very old house with my girlfriend of eighteen years and our two cats. I love to read (favorite writers include E.M. Forster, Marilynne Robinson, Virginia Woolf, Pat Barker, Ursula K. Le Guin, George Saunders, etc). I also like cooking, baking, canning, and food preservation of all kinds; hiking and bird watching; gardening; swimming; watching baseball.... I'm a rather typical introvert and lead a fairly quiet life. I drink entirely too much tea.

About my journal:
I began my LJ as a reading journal, and still often post informal book reviews and thoughts on whatever I happen to be reading at the moment. In addition to writing about books, I often post about food and the projects I undertake in the kitchen. Sometimes I use my journal to track goals. Sometimes I write about the things that are going on in my life. Rarely (very rarely) I share my writing. Sometimes I post about art, or the creative process, or a quotation that caught my attention. I tend to post about once or twice a week. There are often photos. I keep my journal friends-only, but if any of this sounds interesting to you I will be happy to add you so you can check it out. No harm done if it turns out to not be your style after all!

What I'm Looking For:
Like I said, I'm transitioning from using LJ as my main online home, and am looking for a more active friends list here on DW. I like genuine connections and interesting conversations. I'd love to meet people who share my interests, especially fellow book-nerds who want to geek out about literature with me. Outdoorsy folks, creative folks, thinkers, makers, teachers, learners.... I can't promise to be the world's greatest commenter and I don't expect you to be either, but I would like to talk to each other at least occasionally.

Say hello! Let's get to know each other!

 Dear Australian TV (specifically Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (see also) and The Doctor Blake Mysteries (see also)),

stop tugging my heartstrings so gosh darn hard over characters who never show up again (or die)! 

Also please consider having a main character who is a little less of a perfect enlightened angel swooping in to save the poor special episode character? It's good but it's also not good and I don't know what to do with my feelings.


(I watched the latter episode with Sparkly today and was unavoidably struck by how identical it is to that episode of Miss Fisher.)

Following on from my last garden update, here's a picture of my small front garden with more flowers:



I also have a small back garden with two raised beds which I use to grow vegetables. I'd had some terrible problems with slugs and birds eating stuff, early in the season, but I bought some netting which seems to have helped. To be honest, though, I feel like I've neglected my back garden a bit as I've been concentrating more on the front garden and have not had much time lately. So, it was a bit of a surprise when I thought I'd better go out there and start harvesting some stuff, and this was my haul!




I started (re) reading Abarat today
