The Opposite Of An Ear-Worm.

Okay, so that moment when you hear a song - or more specifically a lyric within a song - and you go, “THAT. That’s it. That’s the tile for the fic I am working on.” And then you go to change the fic’s name…and you can’t remember what it was. Or what song you were listening to. Or even where you heard it. And then you have to retrace your steps just to try to figure out what you were doing when this epiphany happened. Yeah, that’s my life right now. And just having the title figured out got me so enthused about a fic that I have kind of let fall by the wayside and now I have lost it! /headdesk/ I am retracing my steps. I will find it! All is not lost.

So, I did a clean sweep of my Friend’s List; unfriended people who have no entries in their journals (oh the days when I just automatically friended anyone who friended me, without even looking at their ljs), unfriended a few people that I had friended for their fics who have moved onto other fandoms, and friended back a few people who had friended me but I was lazy and never got around to friending them.

Wow. I just used the word ‘friended’ a lot in that paragraph.

But mostly I left communities; most of the Glee ones because I’m basically done there, some newsletters because I’m not invested enough to really need daily updates, and several SPN/CW RPS comms because when I first got an LJ I joined a lot of those. I still belong to an abnormal number of them, but I’ve weeded it down a little.

LJ was pissing me off for a few days though, because it kept listing that I had still had posting access to those comms, even though I was no longer a member and I just...need my organization to be complete, not all messed up because LJ is being wonky! It seems to have corrected that issue now. Although I did belong to a comm that has been shut down now but it’s still listed on my profile with a line through it and yet, because it doesn’t exist, I can’t go unjoin, so I can’t get it off my page and...OMG, that one’s bugging me. I have these weird organizational things that you would not expect from me.

Also - does anyone know how to send PMs now? It seems to have disappeared from our profile pages. Or is it now called ‘Nudge’? Because that seems to be an option we have.

I have happier notes but I had to go to the doctor today and now I am all tired and sore, so maybe I’ll be back tomorrow - though tomorrow’s first priority is to clean out my inbox, so comments first, then posting, then writing. Bed now. Night all!
