Hello LJ did you miss me?

You know why I don't LJ any more? Because I barely have time in my life to scratch my ass. Nice image, I know, but hey. I've also started a 'real me' blog, one that I can share with my family and friends more comfortably.
Can't do that with LJ. It's got too much fannish silliness on it!

So I'm...
*still living in sin with the boyfriend. I guess he's a 'de facto' now, though nobody can give me a definate answer on how that is defined
*still at my job at the Communications Corporation of Death. I don't like it lots, but I don't loathe it. Been trying to get another job for about 6 months now. Nothing else out there in my city with anywhere near the pay I'm on currently. On the bright side, I may actually get a payrise this year.
*pretty out of fandom, though I do follow fannish things on Twitter. I watch a lot of cable TV now, so I'm all about the trashy shows - Toddlers & Tiaras, Hoarders, Kendra, The Soup.
*LOVING Stargate Universe. It's replaced the gap left by Battlestar Galactica. In face, it makes me feel like I'm watching the love child of BSG and Firefly. Good stuff!
*Strangely, also starting watching Xena: Warrior Princess every week, because SciFi channel started showing it from the beginning. It's just plain awesome. Does anyone know where I can find any academic stuff on the homoeroticism of the Xena/Gabrielle relationship? I know it's out there.
*Lately been feeling like I should save all my old fanfic from fanfic.net. Because my old computer (Pippin) blew up some time ago and I lost everything. Icons, photos, fic; everything. Sad sad panda.
*watching the Twilight fandom with astonishment and unease, but also amusement. Have read two of the books but am nowhere near being 'ínto' them. I did really enjoy the first Twilight movie though. It was a fantasic book adaptation, talk about page to screen.

So what you all up to?

ETA:
Oh yes, and ozchick just reminded me, my country has a new Prime Minister! A female one! That's pretty big news.

Five weeks since my last post - dear dear. I really do prefer Twitter these days though, which is strange when blogging was such a huge part of my life for so long!

Oh my goodness! I just checked my other email account that I only really look at once in a while, and the mystery of the returning icons is solved - someone anonymously gifted me with a paid LJ account!

THANK YOU, ANONYMOUS BENEFACTOR!!!

Hello livejournal.
So they direct-debited another year's worth of membership from me the other day (forgot I had set that damn thing up) which reminded me that I have neglected my LJ.
It's funny to think something that was such a large part of my life for a long time is now something I hardly think about - except to wonder what my old online friends are up to :)
I still have dial-up at home, and then only when we buy some prepaid credit - archaeic I know, but the budget simply does not allow for broadband right now!
I am posting this from work - used to be I would never do such a thing for fear of people seeing my username but now I don't really care. Everyone's obsessed with Facebook now so that's the only thing that people will look over your shoulder at!
So what's been happening? Lots of drama in my personal life - I moved in with my boyfriend but his mother was living with us as well for a couple of months - long story. She's now gone, thank the gods and Colin and I are 'playing house'. Not quite domestic bliss but it is wonderful to just enjoy life as a couple on our own, without interference!
Re: fandomness, I have little or no involvement with the online fandom community these days and don't keep up with most things, except the big stuff. The most fandom-y thing I've done lately is start to watch BSG S3 - we got the boxed set months ago but I haven't had time to watch it. Colin watched it all in about 3 days when we got it, so he's all school-boy excited about me finding out stuff for the first time. I am having a hard time keeping him from spoiling me as he is very bouncy about the finale. That series gives me a total mind-fuck, I love it. Don't know when S4 will be out here but will be getting it, no doubt!
So, how's everyone else doing?

Hello and goodbye for now

I don't blog here any more. It's so, so strange, but I really don't even blog anywhere any more. For so many years, it was such an integral part of my life, but lately... I just don't feel the need to jump onto LJ all the time.

So, sorry I'm so quiet, folks. I do keep try to keep up with your lives, and some of the best friends of my life I've met via this magical thing called the internet, but I'm out there in the real world so much more often now.

Have decided not to delete my journal altogether, but wanted to let you all know, I won't be posting much any more.

Hi all,
So I have been offline for a good couple of weeks now. For some reason that I don't understand and don't really want to, my PC just... died.
Poor Pippin has been to the computer doctor and he has done what he could but, well, all of my documents are gone. I have my software and a few other bits and pieces like music from Kazaa and stuff, but I've lost pretty much everything - photos, icons, fic...
In a way it's a bit cathatic - I guess I get to start again with my fandom stuff but the thought of all those photos, most of which I'm not sure whether I have backed up on CD somewhere, is a bit sad.

So I'm posting this from Flyboy's place, Pippin is still not hooked up at my place but I am hoping to be online again soon.

I'm also stalling getting back into the swing of things on LJ because I only started Deathly Hallows today and I'm afeart of spoilers!

In other news, Flyboy and I celebrated our six month anniversary on Friday night. We went to dinner at an Indian restaurant (yum) and went to the movies to see OOTP (second time for me, first for him). Things are going really well with him and I'm so happy he's in my life. Though he got a haircut today and it's really short and I'm having a hard time getting used to it!

I've seen tons of movies, read heaps of books and been pretty stressed out at work but I won't bore you with the details. I hope you are all well, and I am begging you - no spoilers for HP in the comments please!

{{hugs flist}} I've missed you guys!

The fuck?

Ok, I don't go online for a few days and 'kerfuffle' happens?
Can somebody please sum up for the wtf went on, and the current status?
I'm so tired from work I just don't have the energy to wade through it all!

More importantly, do I need to do anything to protect my content?

ETA: O_o!! *shakes head*

Comment on this post to say hi if you're reading this and have never commented on my journal before.

Then post this on your own Livejournal to see who's "lurking".
