*sidles back onto LJ*

I've been, uh, busy?

Although, honestly, it looks like the last time I was here was April 2011, and I swear it's not that long. I haven't been that busy. 

I've kind of been sucked into the endless scrolling vortex of tumblr - my excuse is that I've been doing freelance work, which, yay! income generation!, but also energy sucking, so there have been times when all I'm capable of is staring at pretty pictures and clicking 'like'... 

I'm also aware that I've periodically been creeping onto LJ and not actually communicating with people, because after a certain amount of time it always seems to get harder. Do feel free to poke me with a stick.

I've been getting back into writing, and have been posted some stuff to my AO3 account. I'm going to dig out my epic SGA declassification story - hopefully I'll get some purchase on it having let it fester mature for a year and a half.

You are baaaaaaaaaaaack :D Welcome back to LJ :D

Also, I like staring at pretty pictures, too (lately of the Hawkeye/Black Widow variety) but I just... um... don't get tumblr, I think.

Anyway.

Did I welcome you back yet? Welcome back :D

Thank you!

*approves your ship*

No, Tumblr is weird. But compelling. But weird. In form/function and also content. And demographics, although that may be my increasing prejudice against young folk. It's a strange combination of either engaging with content too much ('reblogging' posts that other people have made seems terribly forward) and not enough - I get weirdly resentful when I can't just click a heart and move on. Which is bad, and reinforces my uncommunicativeness. Although the AO3 'kudos' button is also bad for that :/

Thank you for the welcome back :)

You're welcome :)

\o/ Thank you!

Thank God I'm not the only one in her 30s (oh God, I'm in my fucking 30s. I just realized that. I have been since May. OMFG!) thinking that. I'm pretty sure we were different in their age. But then again we didn't have tumblr...

Although the AO3 'kudos' button is also bad for that :/

Yeah, I noticed that, too. I've forgotten how to use ffnet since I started using AO3. I keep searching for a kudos button there (or a like button on LJ *coughs). We're living a very hard life!

...LJ has a like button? Wow, you step outside for twelve months and suddenly everything's changed.

...or was it there all along, and I'm just really unobservant?

Sadly, it doesn't. I may have been unclear about that. Sorry :( I keep wishing we had one here, though...

Ah, okay. I was confused. I don't like change :(

Actually, no, I don't have a problem with change when it improves something, but it so rarely does -

...I am in my thirties, right? Not my seventies. *sighs* Let's say - I mistrust gratuitous change. But I like new things, particularly if they're shiny :)

Yay, Not Dead!!!

Wierdly, I was just thinking that I hadn't heard from you in a while, but since I'm a ridiculously light poster I can't very well gripe at others, even if I have the dubious excuse of not being a writer. I am glad to know you are alive and busy :)

Oh, and try being another 10 years older (when the heck did *that* happen?!?!). I can barely tolerate the 20-something in the next cube (what the he** is that 'ermergerd' crap?). Tumblr is apparently out of my league, I've never even looked. I'll keep my AO3 and LJ, thanks; that's where all *my* cool kids hang out :D

*cough*Movie!Hawkeye rocks*cough* :D

Thanks :)

Honestly, I had a pretty low tolerance for twenty-somethings when I still was one (...it's possible I have a misanthropic streak). I find one of the benefits of getting older isn't just feeling better about who/what I am, but also not feeling obliged to moderate that for other people's benefit - which does extend to where I go online.

One of the good things about Tumblr is that I follow a fair number of people who feel strongly about Hawkeye and/or Jeremy Renner ;)
