Odin's Day

Happy birthday to kizlj!


Ansers to questions asked multiple times last night:
* The scratch on my arm is from Victoria, the youngest cat; she jumped for the bed, missed, got my arm instead. OW. Not a fun way to wake up!
* Yes, my feet are still being difficult. The earliest the recommended rheumatologist can see me is early-mid July. I have an appointment with my primary care doc on Friday, and I'll be asking him if he can get me in sooner or refer me to a pain management specialist. Or both. Both would be good.
* The scent I was wearing = BPAL's Minotaur.

Not an answer, but an observation: pathetic, desperate negative-attention-seeking behavior is freakin' hilarious when you no longer have anything vested in the seekers. Especially when observing the buffoonery becomes a group sport. :)

Level 29! Yay!

And to think I'm planning on doing this *again*...

* A segment of animated footage promoting the 2012 Olympic Games has been removed from the organisers' website after fears it could trigger epileptic fits. Prof Graham Harding, who developed the test used to measure photo-sensitivity levels in TV material, said it should not be broadcast again. Charity Epilepsy Action said it had received calls from people who had suffered fits after seeing it.

* XKCD shows us the electromagnetic spectrum. Dude, I hope they put this on a t-shirt.

Monarch - Met her on The LiveJournal


Two things:

* My daughter mentioned LiveJournal around her friends - one of who piped up and said "Oh, I read LJ!"

* My interviewer at the rape crisis center has now asked if she can read my blog.


See, my LJ is very stream-of-consciousness. It's censored about as much as my mouth is. (Seriously. I have no brain-to-mouth filter.) I am not in the closet here about any damn thing.

But I do want to remain in, say, the kink closet, so far as my daughter's friends are concerned.

And I don't know how my unedited mental ramblings on lewd matters would affect my interviewer's opinion of me and my fitness for all of this.

I could create a separate, more family-friendly blog. I do have an account on Blogger.

But sooner or later, people like my daughter's friends will find me anyway. And for all I know, my interviewer's been reading me for weeks - my default e-mail address is shadesong AT gmail, and all she'd have to do is plug "shadesong" and "blog" into Google.

So what do I do? And if I decide to be less public about stuff like the kink, how do I go back and retroactively friendslock/censor bits of 10,000 journal entries?

Yeah, I really should've thought of this sooner. But Elayna was 7 when I started blogging... her friends were a long way from being web-enabled! Now they have DeviantArt accounts. *sigh*

EDIT: And I don't want to friendslock everything - I can't friend-back everyone who friends me!

Gir - I wanted to explode!


- I took a nap, relying upon Elayna's arrival home to wake me. Woke up... after her doctor appointment. She'd gone to the library instead. (Yes, she called, but the phone doesn't wake me.)
- She brought her best friend home. I'd normally say "No, you screwed up, so no hanging out with friends right now" - but the friend has a sprained ankle and is on crutches. I can't make this child crutch all the way home.

+ First package from my BPAL Switch Witch! A LiveJournal t-shirt. *laugh* Today of all days! But I'll still wear it proudly. Just not at school events. ;)
+ Care package from Spooky, full of spooky and piratical love. :) You spoil me, kiri...

Right, then. *rubs eyes* Shower, then coffee with a friend.
