Hello! ...ello! ...llo!


I haven’d updated LiveJournal regularly in a long while - it mostly serves as a repository of an older me and daily tweet feeds I haven’t worked out yet how to turn off.



So quick question from those who used to follow me on this medium - are you still out there? Do you still use this? Very, very few of the people who I used to follow are here - and a weighty majority are cross-posting from Dreamwidth.



So the next query is - should I stick with LiveJournal for my personal thoughts, or move on with every other bugger to Dreamwidth or Blogger? Maybe my need to share Personal Stuff so broadly has gone with the person I used to be (or is buried under the louder blather of the Poetry Persona)...

  • Wed, 17:27: Amanda Gorman: new name to me and I want to read & hear a LOT more. More bard/ griot than Poet Laureate, is my take. Voice of the people rather than the establishment, but giving us hope that both can jibe. This has been a ceremony of big, visible shifts from previous incumbent.

  • Sun, 22:20: Hi folks! Any Irish Gaelic speakers able to help me with pronunciation? The phrase I need to say is “magh slecht” and can't find any particularly helpful guidance (the scriptwriter isn't Gaelic speaker either, so we're both fumbling on this one; I can't even find a translation!).
  • Mon, 09:32: How's the migraine going, Fay? Well, after losing most of a weekend to it (again), the pain is mostly gone but I feel straight-up CONCUSSED (dizzy, groggy, brain feels swollen, attention span of a mayfly, unable to walk in a straight line). So lying down again then? Yep.
  • Mon, 10:15: Imagine having a take this bad and then doubling- and tripling-down on it through the subsequent thread. If you think that {checks notes} all transformative fiction is bad, mmkay, wow, do I have a litany for you. Because a LOT of established writers and literary giants are at it. https://t.co/Uk8mJVFu6p

  • Sat, 10:54: Couple of weeks ago I was woken up by a loud knocking on my (internal) bedroom wall, right next to my head. It freaked me out, but I convinced myself it was one of those just-falling-asleep auditory hallucinations. Last night, after an hour's sleep, the same thing, only louder.

  • Wed, 15:01: Just had a fantastic chat with Henry (bit of a monologue from me, mind - I don't get out much...); really looking forward to hearing what he makes of that and of the amazing people he's got on his slate. (Being casually and correctly gendered is still such a lovely feeling. ❤) https://t.co/nNj3I1mCiq
  • Thu, 00:04: Went for a nap instead of watching the impeachment debate. Sounds like I made the right choice (unlike all but 10 of the Republican congressfolk).

  • Tue, 23:13: Well, the @Tesco pickers for my order have excelled themselves this time. Not only is this dated for Thursday, but it has a hole in it that someone attempted to mend with stickers (which got damp with leaking fluids). My salad has clearly gone off, to boot. https://t.co/XqHeDCyG1l

  • Wed, 04:03: So, Fay, how's your Getting Your Diurnal Rhythms Back On Track mission going? Well, it was going quite spiffingly until I got hooked into watching the US Congress vote and debate on the "Urge the VP to invoke 25th Amendment" resolution and Learning About US Politics, actually.
  • Wed, 04:19: Honestly same. I was braced to become more right-wing, and look at me! https://t.co/Ozvc7PNSFH

I mean, it's that or a way to impose martial law, leading to a more powerful coup, but that's just wacky... https://t.co/onwQ6Cf3xK
