Natter 41: Why Do I Click on ita's Links?!  

Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.

I didn't know how to respond to the bat-shit crazy. And then I realized I didn't have to. -Victor Infante

Ok, now that we have the shiny new thread I am off to rescue DH and follow the tow truck to the dealership. He thinks it's the transmission. Ouch.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Whether you think about it or not, your unlocked LJ posts are totally available to an audience not personally known to you.

I always think of LJ -- or at least the unlocked posts -- as equivalent to a blog. I know that other people make distinctions between the two, but except for the locked posts, I don't really see the distinction.

I love this thread title.

The feeling you get when your brain finally lets your heart get in its pants.

Yay for a new thread.

From the old one:

Msbelle, feel better.

Hi Nicole!

ita, Please try not to fall down, and I hope you stop feeling like you need to soon.

Allyson, I vote for what Juliana said about creating a new LJ, unless it is too much trouble. Then I just vote for the friends locking everything.

Forgot one: Laura, I hope Brandon and the kids are okay.

Afraid of ita's links?

Art Crawl!!!

I would say that the unlocked posts are definitely public, but coming from a different place as writing for for publication. I mean, I think it's odd that she wants to see your lj.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

You're misunderstanding me. What I'm saying is that Allyson's not blogging (regardless of software platform) because she's not presenting content directed at people who don't know her. Not that they can't read her, but that this is of little to no value to an editor, unless they're trying to be really nosy and profile the person Allyson. Which will fail because of the whole friendslock thing anyway.

eta: Oh look. Sumi was more concise. But that.

I'm getting the pig!

Hi Perkins!

Good job, Laura.

Tom, I accepted your dare. Do I win?
