I feel like I'm rambling on at no purpose on LJ the last couple of days. It was better when I didn't write as a form of interaction with other people; then I didn't feel disappointed when I threw my bottles in the ocean and the disappeared forever. Maybe I write too much. Maybe my entries are too long. Maybe I need to go back to just writing in my diary.

So ... I saw a cool movie and a fantastic art exhibit that I'd love to encourage people to go see, but it seems pointless to write about either (or the party I went to) since I'm just talking to myself. Given that that's the case, I'm going to go read a book and then go to bed.

Update: HAH! I lied and read LJ for twenty minutes right after I posted (new addition to flist) but will now honestly and truly be retreating to the comfort of a trashy SF novel.

I've hit this same wall with LJ several times, or at least a similar wall -- the sad thing is, I'm terrible at commenting/replying to comments when I get busy or preoccupied, so I'm always part of the problem. I'd love to hear about the interesting art exhibit and the cool movie, though, and I enjoy your bottles.

I always read yours, but I don't always have anything to say that's relevant. Come to think of it, my own LJ has been like that lately too. Hence the memes. :-/

do tell.

i *do* sometimes hit stuff that you mention in your journal, as we have somewhat similar tastes in entertainment.

I know you're out there, but when I'm posting stuff where I'm asking for advice I swear sometimes I feel like I'm spitting in the wind.
Jan. 23rd, 2005 10:13 am (UTC)
I always read your entries and find them interesting :) I dont like doing token comments but that is just affectation really - will try to comment more :) Dont stop posting!

In general people post and comment leas at the weekend, dont you find?

Missing you - and not just saying that xxxx

Well of course you can look at this LOGICALLY or you can look at it the way I did
Hearing from you means more than I could possibly ever wish it too, especially after the bad dreams I had last night. Thank you, sweetie. I always look forard to hearing from you and I hate that it can't be getting phone calls with invites to dinner and general hell-raising.
Jan. 24th, 2005 05:48 am (UTC)
Good lord, I need spellcheck
er yeah, I should have said:
"to" not "too"
and of course clarifying that if I was there I'm sure we'd be off raising hell pretty regularly, it's just too bad it can't happen with a mere phone call!

No! Don't stop posting now, I just found your journal :-)

T'was good chatting with you on New Year's Eve. I was completely charmed by you (as were a good number of other people I noticed).
Jan. 24th, 2005 01:51 am (UTC)
But I was all ready to go on hiatus ...
Had you been looking for it? What do you think now that you've found it? Blather on rather a lot, don't I?

It was so nice to meet so many people on New Year's Eve, and to have you say I was well-received does me good. I felt like I was with my tribe and I was very happy. And being called charming is a compliment I'm afraid I don't tire of ... God only knows I'd never been called that before my trip last summer! Almost makes me think there might be a different person inside of me, one whose existence I'd never previously guessed at ...

Re: But I was all ready to go on hiatus ...
>>Had you been looking for it?

I made of note of looking you up after New Year's, but didn't do it until now.

>>What do you think now that you've found it?

It's lovely.

>>Blather on rather a lot, don't I?

Blather on, hon. You've already put more and a few smiles on my face.

What was the movie?

I'm looking to catch both Million Dollar Baby, and Sideways this week with Dr_Meg.
Jan. 23rd, 2005 07:45 pm (UTC)
Million Dollar Baby is supposed to be fantastic. I went to see Guy Maddin's Tales from Gimli Hospital last night, and today I'm supposed to see Takeshi Kitano's Dolls.

Your bottles don't disappear. There is a dedicated team of volunteers patrolling the coasts of the British Isles waiting for new bottles to float into our waters. Each bottle is taken back to headquarters and the message inside carefully extracted and sent out on the wires to the eagerly awaiting masses. *grin*

Look how smart you are!
Girl, you know how to wrassle a wild metaphor right down! Well met!
Jan. 24th, 2005 11:49 am (UTC)
Re: Look how smart you are!
*grin* I'm a regular at the metaphor wrasslin' events at the linguistic rodeos!

I know how you feel. I rarely get comments to my entries and I have a suspicion that the majority of my flist doesn't read them at all.

However, I do read all of your posts -- I just don't always have something to add, or something I feel comfortable (due to my own issues) saying. It usually takes me at least a couple of days after the posting date to comment as well since I'm generally running behind.

So write about those things you've been doing. I may not respond but I'm definitely reading.

Jan. 24th, 2005 01:47 am (UTC)
Thank you, that's good to hear. I read your stuff, you have very interesting posts.
Jan. 26th, 2005 09:31 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you. :> Mutual admiration society!

BTW, saw but when I'm posting stuff where I'm asking for advice I swear sometimes I feel like I'm spitting in the wind in your response to another comment and I can *definitely* understand that. It seems sometimes that people are more interested in the fluff than in the 'meatier' stuff, doesn't it?

rant on ranting
Yeah, sometimes it's so frustrating ... I mean, I get frustrated at people for not interacting with what I say on LJ, then I get frustrated at myself for feeling like I need to use LJ to get feedback on life issues that would probably be better dealt with with real person interaction ... and I feel like a loser for not having more people to talk to in real life.

Oh well, it's not like I haven't managed to recruit lots of real friends through LJ, so it's not a total wash just because I can't get them all interacting with me onlin - far more important (to me) that they will deal with me as an actual human being instead of just as my ethereal self.

Well, I was delighted that you and shadowdaddy joined us last night for the soiree. I hope you had a good dip in the hottub and ... by the way ... I have your beads.
Jan. 23rd, 2005 05:42 pm (UTC)
1) What trashy SF novel are you reading? I might need to read it, too. :)
2) What was the fantastic art exhibit? Where is it showing? Is it at the Frye?
3) Which movie?
Jan. 24th, 2005 01:46 am (UTC)
three questions
1. Shadow of the Warmaster by Jo Clayton.
2. It's the Work of the Work, half at Western Wall, half at the Henry.
3. Tales of the Gimli Hospital, by Guy Maddin.

Oh yes, I picked a present up for you while I was gone, so we should get together and do a hand-off, and maybe lunch!
Jan. 23rd, 2005 05:47 pm (UTC)
I was great seeing you and shadowdaddy last night. I'd be curious to know which exhibit you went to see? Was it the Bridge section of the WOW show? I only saw the Henry section and would be curious about the other pieces.
Jan. 23rd, 2005 05:58 pm (UTC)
Yes it was and it totally rocked.

I give up, maybe I'll write about it after all!

Yeah, I picked it up from reading Rudy Rucker - I've got virtual friends and meat friends. They're all "real" friends, though.
