I have been a bad, naughty Kiwi and stayed up reading fanfic.

I also re-activated and touched up my Dreamwidth account--cranky_x_crocus, as they don't allow double underscores--in case there is a Mass Exodus over there soon. I like to be prepared, you know; I'm even testing the waters by cross-posting for the first time in ages. (I suppose I'll be doing that every time now. Peculiar. Two different swimming spots.)

I'm getting that peculiar desire to go study and memorise the names of all verb tenses (for I feel I really should remember) and that usually means it's time for me to go to bed, stat.

I love you lot. I don't often say it--the term 'love' was very uncomfortable for me through most of my teenage years--but I mean it. I believe in Orlando I put it something like, "I have the urge to hug everyone. I blame all of you for making me like you so much."

I've just been overwhelmed today by the feelings of how much I appreciate and cherish all of you. I'll admit, not the worst feelings to have throughout a day. (: Let's hope they last and help me trot off to sleep! Love to all of you, however close or far you are from sleep. ♥

Oh I sure hope LJ will not be deserted, I'd hate to learn something new and I have to keep my diary here alive and available for myself at least....

The time-difference between us is a bit of a nuisance, I start my day and you go to bed ;-), but one has to be so thankful that correspondence is possible this fast at all.... I remember the old times too well, a letter taking one week across the ocean and the answer another week....

Sleep well ♥

Edit: such a pretty icon!!

Oh, I wouldn't worry about wholesale desertion yet. Every now and then there's a moment when everyone hollers about how awful LJ is. And then things calm down again.

I suppose the difference for me is that usually I'm not too big in the hollering about LJ; I usually find a way around it to keep LJ the way I want.

If I can't manage that for this new flist-layout change, I'm afraid to say I really will be looking for a new home base. And as we discussed in Orlando, I really am a crone of LJ! I'm published in the Livejournal Turns 10 book, I pay for my account and extra icons and userheads, I have thousands of posts and more comments... If I decide LJ is no longer my Internet home, that's not so good! Not that I matter much as a single person in the long-run, but I bet that there are other long-term users thinking as I do.

So hopefully they'll end up making it a choice whether we want our flist-reading less customisable or not in the end. (:

For now I doubt it'll be deserted. Thankfully DW isn't that different, so I haven't really had to learn anything new. (: And I was able to transfer my entire LJ there--comments included--so it all worked out!

Yes, I've noticed that with our time-difference! It doesn't help that my group of friends tends to be quite nocturnal.

I love lj. I barely use my dreamwidth. I did add you just in case though.

Thank you very much!

At the moment I only use it to post and it cross-posts here. :D If we don't get choices about future flist presentations then I'll mostly move over there. Which will be sad.
