Miss Me?

hellotk421
If you are missing my posts you can find me still unpacking in my new home at The Bananaverse. I have finally moved off of LiveJournal for good, and it only took me HOW long to do it? I know.

I have set up syndication so you can add my other blog to your friends list if you want to.

I would like to point out that I was able to import every single post and comment from my seven years of LJ by using LJ Archive which is Windows only but the only way I was able to do ALL the entries AND also get ALL the comments. Import was a piece of cake, I had to split my entry export in half since it would only process for a certain amount of time. If you want help getting all your stuff archived let me know, now that I've done it I can tell you it was easy. I did it over iced tea and fries at McMenamin's!

Anyway, I will only sort of miss Livejournal itself but I will still be checking in on all of you so don't worry. And you can always come over to The Bananaverse and talk smack there if you want to. (:

It won't leave me alone....

...so I have to get this out of my head. Ever since I heard it I can NOT get it to frakking leave (I know that looks wrong but I checked) so I gotta post this and get it out of my brain.

In the season premiere for Battlestar Galactica (and it's been like a month so this is not a spoiler) there's a ship that gets blown up in the big battle at the start of the episode. Right out of the gate, wham! Roslin is on the bridge and when the sitrep comes in for the Pyxis the President (Roslin) looks physically affected, she holds on to something almost for support, and she says (something like), "My Gods, there were 600 souls on that ship..."

It continues to echo in my head, every time I hear about Iraq and how the number of casualties continues to increase. Because nobody says souls or people or young people or kids or any of that. I used to hear Americans a lot too, but even that not so much anymore. It's usually "casualties" or "soldiers". That's crap. Here are some better words to use when reporting this:

souls
spouses
children
parents
friends
brave _____
volunteers

I've been known to toss up a political post or two in my time (ahem), but I've given up on most of it quite honestly because I got frustrated and I got worn down. I can blog about injustice till the cows come home, but let's be honest here, I have a LIVEJOURNAL for gord's sake and really I'm just not going to get the kind of attention others get who do this all the time and are all professional about it. But I can't tell you how hard it has been the last couple of weeks to keep hearing Mary McDonnell in my head. I knew nobody else was hearing it but me, and we all know how THAT story ends...

Beer and Blog

hellotk421
So I am at the Green Dragon right now, anxiously awaiting the official start of the Beer and Blog session on design and how to make blog posts look pretty even if you aren't a designy type person. So that should be fun.

It's been so long since I have been here posting instead of on Twitter I barely know what to do with mroe than 140 characters! Weird.

But I'm hoping to see a bunch of Twitter folks and such, and I'm helping by adding my two bits about starting a blog and such for someone who wants to get going. Plus it's only been officially started for six entire minutes and there are already three girls here! Honestly that's very surprising. So when it's over I'll tell you more!
