another pleasant unintended consequence...
... of buying the 15" Powerbook on a whim: I can successfully burn DVDs (given some handholding from d3l1r1um). This whole business of "burning" CDs or DVDs feels very much like black magic. Where's my RS-232 port and my 1200 baud modem? (*creak* *hobble* Kids these days...)

I have, somewhat skeptically, embarked on a paper journal. When I look back at my earliest LJ entries, it's clear to me that even though I was claiming to let the chips fall where they might, I was actually writing in the expectation of having no audience. Now that LJ is intertwined with most, if not all, of the people I am closest to, I'm feeling inhibited (and boy is that an unusual experience).

So, to the paper, which while it may be slower and subject to my inelegant handwriting, will provably not give a damn about what I say about whom.

Whether this means more LJ from me, or less, is unclear.

Current Mood: pleasedpleased

Hey, that 1200 baud modem was a really big upgrade! I'm still having trouble adjusting to synchronous communications...

I really do want to return your book. I'd thought I could drop it off locally, but recently realized that's not a likely option... and I've still been so f&*(ing sick that commiting to a visitor or social event is a dicey proposition. If all else fails, drop me a note with your snailmail address and I'll ship it. Meanwhile, know that it is safe on the shelf of someone who will make sure it returns home, not vanished into the black hole of a book lifter.

Leo Tolstoy Kept a journal.
When his wife found out about it,
he wrote one toned down for her
and started a second secret journal.
When his live-in biographer found out about that one,
he ended up writing three journals each day.

Re: Journals

I am entirely in sympathy.

Why do you believe that you could write something in here that would cause most or all of us to not like you any more?
