hey, wow
I started writing on LJ because it was more efficient than trying to tell the same story to each of my friends in sequence, and they were no longer hanging out in the same physical or electronic venues (if ever they were). And it has been of great usefulness this way. (That's a clunky sentence, but I'm leaving it alone.)

But I find myself particularly charmed by the serendipity of discovering a friend on LJ (or being discovered) with whom I haven't interacted in far too long. Hello, lyonesse darling. It was good to see you in Boston; it's good to see you here. (How often do I get to read a journal where nearly all the music entries are songs I know and love? :-)

hi hi hi

i was pretty darned charmed to find you here too, old friend :) it was particularly convenient of you to still be using the same nick -- i'm not sure you'd have recognized "lyonesse" as yours truly from what, maybe fifteen years ago?

(speaking of which, i still sleep on those lion sheets.... :)

Re: hi hi hi

If you hadn't written about your elf, I might still be wondering who lyonesse was, but that's part of the charm, successfully figuring it out. :-) My elf posts occasionally as well.

I'm glad those sheets have held up for you! My ~10-year-old LL Bean flannel sheets have disintegrated under the strain, alas.

Re: hi hi hi

hee! it's good to have an elf. (they run thick through my life for some reason.) mine posts here sometimes too, albeit only in rare and geeky ways.

speaking of which -- i promised that when he moved in we'd get a bigger bed for my room (he's tall; longer than my old bed was), and eventually we did. then he took my old bed down to his own room (he at least fits on it slantways, i guess), and that's where the lion sheets live now.

they've had many adventures (i once wore the topsheet to a bacchanal....) i'm keeping the pillowcases :)

I'm not sure if I know lyonesse or not, but it's interesting how we have at least 3 people in common on our friends list.

LiveJournal is primarily cool for the "friends" mechanism.
