Flist cut

Over the next few days, I'll be removing dead journals, the journals of those who have abandoned LJ for DW, and a few past journals (a few of you have moved to new journals and I haven't removed your old journal yet... which can get confusing to keep track of at times!).

I'll probably also look through the rest of my flist to see if there's anyone I've just not been clicking with. I don't think there will be many that fall under this category, that said.

In saying all that, drop me a comment if you think I've removed you by accident or if you'd like to add me on DW*.

*Please note that I won't be putting in extra effort to check both flists at this point and my DW is simply for back up reasons. I've had a few recent adds by users I don't recognise, so please let me know your username over there if it's different from here.

thestoryinside


With the blessing of the lovely [livejournal.com profile] amyofaquitaine of [livejournal.com profile] pick_for_me, we are bringing an all new bright and shiny Livejournal bookclub!

If you're anything like us, you'll no doubt have a mountain of books that you just never get around to reading. Well, that's where [livejournal.com profile] thestoryinside comes in - have someone choose your book for you!

The process is simple: join the community, and each month sign up to be partnered with a buddy, who will then choose a book from your 'to read' list. At the end of each month there will be a community post to discuss your thoughts on the book(s) you read!

However, we're putting a twist on the traditional 'pick for me' routine and each month we'll vote on what genre of book we'll be reading; now, of course this is open to personal interpretation, for example, if the genre is horror and you're not a big fan, you could go for a Goosebumps book, or even Twilight. There will be an opportunity in each voting post to ask any questions you might have.

Flist

I've been struggling to keep up with my flist lately, so removed a few people. It's not really something I wanted to do, but most of my days lately have ended with a dozen or more posts still in my inbox and it's just too much. Sorry guys, and all the best.

Reading bingo 2017

I very much enjoyed doing Reading Bingo in 2016. This year, I wanted to do it again, but with different prompts. I couldn't find any challenges that quite clicked with me, so I made three challenges of my own.

Feel free to snag one, two, or all three of them, and give it a go as well. (If you do join in, please leave a comment and let me know; I'd like to see how others go with it. A link back to this post would be nice too, though you don't have to do that.)

Misc prompts

The first book in a series A book with more than 400 pages A book recommended by a friend An audiobook A book with time travel
A book with magic A book by a local author A borrowed book A book with a dragon A book about the apocalypse
A graphic novel A book with a colour in the title A book with a serial killer A book that became a movie A book with less than 200 pages
A book that became a TV series A book that has cake A book with a number in the title A book of short stories A book with a one-word title
A book with a dog A book set in space A book about life or death A book published this year The last book in a series

"...still flying..."

♦ Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ellipsisms for the Christmas card! :D

♦ I've been watching Angel From Hell today. I have 3 episodes left. It's such a cute show. ♥

♦ I'm aiming to finish Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2) by Marissa Meyer by the year's end. I'm nearly half finished, so it should be doable.

♦ I have one more 3 sentence fic to write. Will watch more Killjoys first; I didn't get to watch any while away for the week.

♦ This evening and tomorrow, I have writing to organise and word counts to record for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout.

♦ Before the 1st, we have Christmas decorations to take down. And the yard needs mowing (Zach started today, but ran out of fuel).

I'm considering doing a "books of 2016" post: a list of books I read, along with 1-3 sentences of my thoughts. Might be too lazy for it, though. Probably too lazy. Yeah, screw that. Too lazy.

♦ I have to update my lists of evil + masterlist - probably on the 31st.

♦ Will tag this entry later, when tags and such are working properly again.

LJ issues

Right now, I can't select the security option for posts (private, public, f'locked). There's just a grey question mark next to the security option. The usual drop down menu is not showing up.

lj-spoiler cuts aren't working for me right now either - on my own journal and others.

And from the "make a post" page, I can't select a userpic. The drop down menu won't open.

Oh, and tags and mood and so on won't autofill as they usually do. AND there's no option at the side of the "tags" to select from my tag list.

Additionally, when I go to reply to comments on my journal, the comments won't display on the page, meaning I can't a) read them, or b) reply to them. (I am still getting notifications, though! So far.)

Anyone else having these issues?

(LJ support has been contacted - several times, as I discovered each issue.)

We are returned (aka hiatus: over)

So, we got home from Zach's parent's place last night (via Smoky Woodfired Pizza; their Surf and Turf pizza is pretty amazing). Read more... )

I posted some photos on instagram. And yeah. Think I'll leave this post about here; I think it summarises well enough.

Before I go, *waves*. And I'm going to pick up flisting from today (though I have saved the LJ notifs from our break and might skim some of those too, depending on time and end of year things I still need to do). How've you all been?

Axton story time!

Recently, Axton has started to sleep underneath his bed. Like this:



This morning, Zach's alarm for work didn't go off and he was running late. In his rush, he knocked over Axton's water bowl (the silver bowl in the photo). Water splooshed out and very quickly approached where Axton lay.

Axton shifted. He pretty much picked up the bed on his back, moved away from the water, and lay back down.

The water kept approaching, quickly, silently. Axton, without lifting his head, watched it from the corner of his eyes. Big, wide eyes. Occasionally, his eyes darted back to me and Zach as we watched and smirked slightly (we are bad people).

The water didn't stop. It was nearly at Axton's nose. He shifted a paw, and smeared a line of water across the concrete. Did it stop the water? Nope. The water continued on its path, and then moved faster when it hit the water smear he'd created.

So, Axton decided maybe he'd try drinking it. Surely that would work. He licked at the water, tried to keep up with its flow. Alas, it moved too fast.

At this point, Zach decided he should head off for work, so he headed for the front door, and I followed to say bye. A moment or two later, there was the familiar screech of Axton's bed scraping along the concrete as he quickly climbed out, and then a puppy padded up behind me.

He was sad that Zach left. Also, he didn't return to his bed, oddly enough. He's lying by the front door now, waiting.

Here are a few bonus photos:
