Plurk has this thing where we introduce ourselves with an Intro Plurk, and I find myself typing the same things again and again on a monthly or bi-monthly basis.

So here's the basic rundown of who I am so I can be lazy and link to it:

It's always an adventure when I use air travel.

Many people will remember what happened the last time I moved internationally: during an effort to clear up some issues with the legalities of my visa, I was detained by UK border patrol and then redirected to Italy, where I was temporarily arrested by the Polizia di Stato.

On all subsequent flights into the UK, I have been detained while they figured out why I was detained in the first place.

On one notable outbound occasion, I sat next to Giancarlo Esposito (Once Upon a Time, Breaking Bad, and Revolution) and talked to him about his family and the documentary he was filming.

At least... )

Last week, there were a few complaints about a fellow player because she had been talking in her private forum (plurk) about how she liked various canon and cross-canon ships. Someone had been angry enough with her over this to take it off Plurk, to a Dreamwidth community where they could basically vent their spleen without her seeing how upset they were.

Let's stop right there and have a look at that sentence... )

More on my dad.

More familial nonsense. )

So, I'm open to advice because at this point, I haven't the first fucking clue how to proceed.

My husband is the greatest human being alive.

For Valentine's Day, I am going to New York to see Seminar.

Let me repeat that slowly.

I am going to New York to see Seminar.

Once more, with feeling:

That was far more feeling than I expected. )

I'm able to remember that Men in Black came out at the same time as The Lost World (which is the sequel to Jurassic Park). The reason I know this is because a friend and I went to the theater to see The Lost World, and at the box office, she had second thoughts.

Her words to me: 'I don't know if I can see this. I need to pray about it.'

Unsure what to say, and unwilling to just go home and wait for her to get a direct line to God to talk about the potential pitfalls of seeing fake dinosaurs and how this might apply to her religious life, I agreed to forgo the experience and we saw Men in Black instead.

(I think it's important to note here that I have no personal issue with this sort of religious fervor. If she really felt she needed to pray about it, I am absolutely, one hundred percent fine with that. I just think, were I in a similar position, I would have had that particular conversation with my deity before putting on my coat.)

Skip forward to 2012. I recount this story to Steph and Kimtoo, who proceed to create a Tumblr post with "I can't watch Sherlock Holmes. I need to pray about it." They tag it with the Sherlock BBC tag.

With the site-wide redesign of LJ, I am still able to make it function for me, but I am of the opinion that if I'm paying for a service, I should be getting exactly what I paid for and not trying to fix what they broke.

I'm not even going to bother with tearful goodbyes. I'm going to encourage each and every last one of you to follow me over to Dreamwidth, where my new journal is 'coldcalculations'. Add me, I will add you back, we will continue on as though NOTHING HAPPENED! (They have open registration at the moment).

If you're one of my RP mates, my other journal / castlist / whatever is 'redrover'.

If you're sticking with LJ, well, I'll still HAVE this journal because it's a permaccount, but I won't be posting to it. ILU all!
