ermahgerd, I have felt frustrated for ACTUAL YEARS that the in the main view of my DW journal, the tag module on the right had the tags in a cloud instead of the tidy list format of the tag page. WHY COULDN'T THIS JOURNAL STYLE HAVE A LIST AS AN OPTION FOR THE MODULE, I wailed internally on a regular basis. WHY?

Today I went into journal customization. Turns out there's an option for that. IT IS FIXED AND EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL.

(now I'm really curious: has this ALWAYS been an option? Or did it get added at some point in the time since I created this journal? How many of my years of frustration could have been averted?)

I finally got around to switching to following everyone possible on DW instead of LJ! I think! I am pretty sure I didn't miss anybody, at least. (let me know if you do the DW thing too and I haven't subscribed to you over there/here?)

The problem, of course, is that right now LJ isn't permitting me to, like, actually defriend people. So right now I have a helluva lot of people who I'm following on both DW and LJ. KIND OF A PAIN.

Thing One: Dude. DUDE. *dies laughing* So a comment in response to a Dresden Files fic I was reading said something about how angry Harry's subconscious must be with him at a particular point in the fic. And I grinned, and was like, yeah, probably. Then today I started reading Fool Moon (aka Book Two of the series) and spoilers )


Thing Two: So, here's a minor matter of etiquette/custom/what-have-you. When posting to dreamwidth and crossposting to LJ, what does one do when linking to old posts of one's? Link to the DW version exclusively? The LJ version exclusively? The DW version if it was posted since moving to DW, and the LJ version if it dates to before the switch to DW? The DW version on DW and then go and edit the LJ post to have a link to the LJ version instead? Some other option that I've managed to not consider? Aaaaaah! Obviously some of these options are more viable than others, and also obviously each choice says something specific about one's policies and/or opinions about the respective sites. And I don't know what I want to be saying! WHAT TO DO.


Thing Three: So Dinah introduced me the other day to this trailer to a new movie based on Beauty and the Beast. And you know I'm a sucker for fairy tales. And, weirdly, this movie actually looks kind of promising! I mean, it could still turn into all kinds of bad news in its execution, since stories like Beauty and the Beast are just ripe with possibilities for fail, but -- I like what I can see of it in the trailer. Am I just crazy or is there actual promise in here?

My biggest problems with it )

Um. Apparently I have more reservations than I thought. But I'm still intrigued! (also, NEIL PATRICK HARRIS. Hopefully the movie makes good use of him!)


Thing Four: I'm pretty sure I've decided to just go with the Raven King as the name for my iPod. I keep on trying other names on for size, and I keep coming back to that one. So the Raven King it is, despite the gaudy case.

Because of course the internet is more important than working on an essay, I spent this evening creating and organizing a dreamwidth account for myself, because an openID is kinda unwieldy when you want to be able to post to comms. So. Here it is, in all its glory!

I haven't finished doing everything I want to do, such as changing the links in the fanfic master list on DW to correspond with the DW posts, and renaming my LJ tags to correspond with my newly organized DW tags. But I think I've wasted enough time for one day.

And now back to my essay, where I have a few* more words to write.


*cough cough cough
