Anyone out there?

Seems like LJ has been pretty quiet for the past few months. I haven't seen as many posts as in the past, and commenting has been less active (at least in the various places where I hang out.) Looks like many people have decamped to Facebook, which is quite understandable! While I've never been into FB for various reasons, I can see the appeal. And I guess many folks just aren't as into LJ as we used to be. Also understandable. LiveJournal can certainly be ephemeral; heck, I'm surprised I've been here for almost eight years. And I'm so grateful for all the friends I've made and still talk to often. :)

So, out of curiosity, who's still around? Roll call!

Perky nips, studly Kiwis, and delurking days.

sinful_caesar (thanks!) has hi-res photos of Katee at the TV Guide party, looking very Veronica-Lake-glam. Good shoe choice, and ya gotta love a dress with pockets. I love how the unfortunate bust-dart placement makes her look like she has very perky nipples. ;) Also, txvoodoo has an awesome Emmys gallery, including two pics of the Conchords guys. Yay! Oh, Brit. You're such a stud.

Okay, I posted this the other night, but LJ somehow screwed up the code beyond recognition, so I had to private-ize it. I found this meme on bop_radar's LJ. I do Delurking Days every few months, but I couldn't resist another one -- though I did change a few of the questions.

I'd like to know 27 things about you. Just copy and hit reply and paste in the comments section with answers. Thanks! You'll be surprised how much you didn't know about your friends after this! Answer as many questions as you'd like, then copy the meme and see if anyone answers you.

1. Do you have a tattoo?
2. How old are you?
3. Among your friends, what's your "claim to fame"?
4. Eat with your hands or utensils?
5. Do you dream at night?
6. Ever seen a corpse?
7. George Strait or Jay Z?
8. How did we meet?

wisteria of the thousand days

Well. I have now officially posted at least once daily for the past 1,000 days. That’s... kinda scary, actually! I feel like I should commemorate it, but I have no clever ideas. How about yet another Delurking Day? (Seems like I do these all the time, but the last one was in October. ;)

So... de-lurk and tell me a little about yourself, even if I've known you for years!

1. Hi! Describe yourself in exactly 10 words.
2. Where do you wish you were right this minute?
3. If we met in person, what’s the first thing I’d notice about you?
4. How did you find my LJ?
5. If you won a million [insert local currency], what’s one completely selfish thing you’d buy?
6. What’s one thing that has made you happy in the past 24 hours?
7. What’s one thing that has annoyed you in the past 24 hours?
8. What fruit or vegetable best describes you?
9. Which one bit of advice do you wish someone had given you in 7th grade?
10. What’s your TV-related guilty pleasure?
11. You’re stranded on a deserted island. Which fictional character would you want nearby?
12. Warm fuzzies time! Pay a compliment to one/all of the following:
a. someone else on LJ
b. someone from real life
c. someone famous

The 372nd Semi-Annual Delurking Day!

Work is sucking away my soul, as usual. I thought about coming home and posting another "woe is me" whinefest, but I'd rather think HAPPY thoughts right now. Since I've noticed a few new names around here (hi, new folks!), how about another Delurking Day? These are really just an excuse for me to ask a bunch of wacky questions and get to know y'all. I don't generally reply because things can get a bit crazy, but I *love* reading all the comments. So even if you've already done these the past few times (or aren't technically a "lurker"), please feel free to jump in!

1. Hi! What's your name?
2. Where do you live?
3. If we met in person, what's the first thing I'd notice about you?
4. What's one thing you're craving right this minute?
5. If a personal chef were standing by to cook your dream meal, what would you order?
6. What's your favorite word in the English language?
7. What's your most unusual/bizarre phobia?
8. If you were stuck on Lost's island, what one non-islandy thing would you want to have?
9. What's one thing that has made you happy in the past 24 hours?
10. What's one thing that has annoyed you in the past 24 hours?
11. What's your favorite TV show currently in production?
