LJ Strike [Thursday, March 20th, 2008 12:48PM]

For those of you who don't already know, there has been a strike scheduled for Friday, March 21st, 2008, during which we hope to have many members of LiveJournal provide LJ with absolutely no content for twenty-four hours. This means no posting and no commenting. If you post elsewhere and have it set up to be posted through a feed on LiveJournal, don't do it. Stay away from LiveJournal for twenty-four hours. That can't be too hard, can it? I know some of you are probably quite active on LiveJournal and will find it hard to stay away for an entire day, just as I will, but this is something that needs to be done, to show the people running LiveJournal that we're watching the changes they are making, that we're paying attention, that we're discontent, and that we want to be heard and taken in to consideration. We are not simply users who can be tossed to the side and ignored. We are the people who make up LiveJournal. Without us, without the content we create, without our words, our voices, our creativity, our participation, there would be no LiveJournal. This is a fact, and it needs to be realized and understood and then taken in to consideration when making decisions regarding the way that LiveJournal is run. The strike is only a few days away, so there isn't all too much time to prepare. While this is unfortunate, it isn't enough to keep this strike from taking place. It will take place, the second it is meant to, and it would be best to have as many people take part as possible. Please, spread the word. Spread it fast. There are only a few days to organize this. If you find that you care about LiveJournal or care about the people you interact with on LiveJournal or simply want it to remain a place where you can entertain yourself without constant censorship and money-hungry practices being thrown in without the consideration of those who use the service, act now. If you don't wish to spread the word, that is fine, but please: refrain from using LiveJournal on Friday, March 21st. Do something else for a change. It's for a good cause. (:

For background on this strike and why it is being held, please read the following posts:

To find out exactly when the strike begins and ends, depending on where you are located, please see this:

What's this about?

* It's about free and ad-free LiveJournal accounts being abolished for new members, ignoring the advice from the newly-formed Advisory Board.
* It's about LJ staff trying to sneak this decision in under the radar, and when people found out, telling the users it was done 'to make the signup process less confusing'.
* It's about LJ staff failing to apologize for trying to hide the facts from view and for lying about the actual reasons for their actions.
* And finally, it's about the latest decision to hide certain user interests from the list of Most Popular Interests, some of them being fanfiction, bisexuality, sex and depression. This decision was not announced or explained in any way. Users found out for themselves.

Oh snap. [Sunday, August 12th, 2007 10:04AM]
I want a Vampire Bat.
Watching the Discovery Channel, and they had Vampire Bats.
Oh man, so cute. He was petting it's head, and its little eyes would close and you could tell it was oh so content.
And they only need to feed once a day, and they dont drink much... I'm willing to share! The guy on there gave his bat some of his own blood, from by his thumb, and it didnt look too bad. They just make a little bite, and their saliva has an anti-coagulant, so your blood keeps flowing, it doesn't clot. Really, I think it would be worth it. I mean, what's a little blood between a girl and her bat?

had a date last night.
I don't know what to make of it.
Talk about mixed signals.
But I like this kid.
A lot.

His name's Dan. And he's adorable.

We met downtown around 5th street, and ended up walking around for like, 2.5 hours just talking and shiiiit. And then around 9 he asked me if I wanted to get bite to eat. Which he wouldnt have done if he hadn't been liking the date, right?
So, we went and ate at this little coffee shop, and he paid for mine, which makes it like... an official date or whatever, correct? (Not that you cant have a date and pay for yourself, just saying...).
While we were eating he was having some baby mama drama. His daughters mom was texting him, but her words were all jumbled and he was getting worried because she's been having some bad migraines lately and she was alone with the baby last night (She's married now, her hubby works nights.), and I asked if he needed to go over there to see if things were okay, because she wasnt answering her phone. Which, if he had hated the date, he could have used that as an excuse to leave, right? But he didnt, and he asked if I wanted to keep walking around after we ate. Buuut, my legs were basically dead, and my knee was acting up, so we walked back to our cars. I was parked right next to him, BUT THEN, he didnt walk me to MY car, he stopped at his, and we said goodnight. WHICH WAS VERY CONFUSING, because he had been all gentleman-ly openign doors and shit for me. And all tha stuff, and then NOTHING. So he said he had a really good time and all that. BUt who knows. Maybe he didnt mean it. I DONT KNOW.
And, I lost my phone while we were walking. So he cant even call me or text me or anything. And he very rarely gets online.

There were some cool kids out last night and it made me sad that I wasnt sexhhott. I wanted to go make out with some of them. SO MANY MOHAWKS!!

Fun Filled Day... [Monday, June 18th, 2007 12:39PM]
So yesterday wasn't too bad, went over to Jared house and hung out with him and his family for awhile, was basically ignored by Jared the entire time (even though he's the one that invited me) ended up leaving about 2 and coming back for connor around 4. Gave jared a ride to a pizza place, came home. Connor had a runny nose in the morning and the entore time we were at Jareds, he started coughing a bit when we got home, a croup-type cough, which was freaking me out. Put him to bed at 7 and he woke up screaming around 8, ran in there and he had mucous ALL OVER his mouth. Calmed him down, gave him some water and some decongestant and put him back to bed. 8:30 I hear a couple screeches, go in there and he's gasping for air, every time he inhales it sounds like something is blocking his wind pipe, he just CANNOT inhale. So I yell for my mom and we run out to the car and race over to the ER, I called jared from the car and let him know, but of course his parents were passed out and couldnt drive him to the hospital. So we get there and connors breathing a bit better, we get seen and they say he might have RSV again (He was hospitalized for that when he was 3 mos old), he got some steroids and they sent us home. Today he's loads better, but he's super clingy and is scared to take a nap. He wont let go of me or let me put him down. Poor baby.

So he was screaming and crying a little bit ago, wouldnt let me put him down or take a nap, and I asked him if he wanted to watch Jack (Jack skellington) and he takes this deep breath, pauses and goes "Yeah". AH! SO CUTE! haha, that kid loves The Nightmare Before Christmas even more than I do, i swear. So now he's all wrapped up on the couch watching the movie.

ALSO. His hair is getting really long, and its super thick in the middle on top and down the back, its like he was meant to have a mohawk, i swear. My little rocker :) Oh man I love that kid.

Oh how he loves JackCollapse )
Mohawk timeCollapse )

OH MAN! Jack just fell down the hill in christmastown, and Connor went "UH-oh Jack!"

He just stole a piece of my heart.

So excited! He's pretty cute and really funny. Hopefully we hit it off. He's freaking TALL though. Like, 6'4 or something. I'm 5'10, so.. should be good? YAY ME! Amber's coming over to beautify me. SO STOKED! We're going to go see a movie, because I get nervous easily. lol.

Jared has a new "friend" whom I believe he's dating, but he refuses to acknowledge it. Anywho, she seems nice enough. Kinda ugly, but whatver floats your boat. She has a daughter, who's pretty cute. Anyway.


His name is Quentin

Guys suck. [Sunday, May 20th, 2007 9:21AM]
Why is it that because I have a kid, I'm suddenly a slut? I was talking to this guy, who isn't super cute, but I figured would be good to start getting out there again with, if I ended up liking him enough to meet up, but as soon as he found out I had a kid, all his questions turned to sex. Lame. Guys are always so surprised when they find out I hae a kid AND I've only been with one guy. It is possible to have a child and not sleep with everything wearing pants. Sheesh.
