Celebrate Good Times, Come On!  
It's my LJ anniversary! Number 7, to be exact! Can't believe it's been seven years. I was just telling a friend from these parts - who I met on here back in my freshman LJ year, lizibabes, whom I have stayed friends with all these years - (how many of you have been chatting with me for seven or six or even five years now?!) - that, as it happened, the day I made my first LJ post was The Nephew's 4th birthday. He turned 11 today!

I meant to get my Dreamwidth up today, so that my LJ and my DW anniversary would be the same. As events unfolded this week - besides Lucky's death, Mom has been in the hospital all week, came home today, is doing better - I just didn't have time. I've been baby-sitting all day, with help from The BFF, as Sis has bronchitis and my brother needed the kids watched so he could do funeral stuff.

As I type this, The Niece and I are side by side in my bed on our tablets. She is playing a puzzle game for kids and I am making this post. Once she settles a bit, I'll turn on Moana. She saw it in theaters, but I've never seen it! Anyways, I still wanted to get something put up for my LJ anniversary!

Maybe you all could leave me some comments? Anything you can think of that reminds you of me - something you see somewhere that makes you think 'Dodger', or maybe a fic of mine you remember fondly, or how long you've been following me. Anything at all to make me 'awww' over my wonderful friends and wonderful time here!

I love all you guys! I always say, "internet friends are real friends too!"

Happy Anniversary!!

I hope you enjoy "Moana" as much as I did.

I adored this post you made in 2013...

Oh goodness, thank you for reminding me of taking The Nephew to see the first Hobbit movie. His take on it at age 6 is too precious. And it warmed my heart when you linked to it on your own journal, because I am so proud of my little man. (Now nearing 12 years old, can you believe that?!)

And those stories, oh thank you! You always give me such good inspiration for fics, J! <3

Anything Supernatural makes me think of you and I think you're going to love Moana.

Oh and I've finally started watching Jackson Galaxy and he's so good with cats. Whenever I watch I think of all your lovely kitties and how you put them first.

I was so into SPN when I first started this journal, that feels like ages ago! Though my heart will also have such a soft spot for it. And Moana, like seriously, is there nothing Dwayne Johnson can't do!

Aww, thank you. Jackson Galaxy's love for cats is so heart warming and honestly, I have learned so much from him. He has enriched the lives of my cats so much.

Absolutely!!!

Congrats on your LJ anniversary. I've been here 12 years and the first two friends I made on line (at an Elijah Wood site) are my two oldest friends here. I've been fortunate to meet many of my LJ friends, which is lovely. Some of the loveliest people I've ever known are people I met on line. You gotta love the Internet.

Isn't that wonderful? The things we can connect with people over, the way we find 'our people'. Like even back a decade ago, people would sneer if you said you met a friend online. Like that wasn't a 'real' friend somehow. But times have changed. The rest of the world has caught up to what fandom has known for a long time - internet friends are real friends!

The internet has enriched my life in ways I cannot even measure. <3

Oh, mine, too...for sure. I live in such an isolated rural area that the Internet is crucial to my social life.

So true. In 2006, 10 of us who had met on line decided we should meet each other in person. My RL friends were horrified, like I was meeting a bunch of ax murderers. LOL
