Hello?

Does this thing still work? Let's find out. Wow, this looks different. Weird. Okay. Hi, Livejournal! I logged on to look for something today, and I realized that I miss you guys and have no idea what most of you are doing anymore unless you use Facebook. So in the spirit of catching up:

1. I am moving house in less than a week and should not be playing on the computer! That's actually why I got on LJ this morning, all of my books are packed and I need something to read so I thought I'd log on and find links to some old fanfic that I could reread.

2. A while back, I made this:

I call it "Theodore." It is currently engaged in emptying all the bins of toys onto the floor.

3. I would give you a picture of what Bear looks like now but holy crap, HTML is hard when you're using an iPad and it's trying to be all helpful and really it's just causing trouble and WILL YOU JUST LET ME TYPE, IPAD!! You'll just have to take my word for it that Bear is a bright-faced, blue-eyed, four-and-a-half-year-old wunderkind who is learning to read and control his theatrical impulses when appropriate. (I wish. He's really just learning to read. The other thing is totally beyond him, still.) If you Facebook and wish to make his visage and hilarious utterances part of your newsfeed, feel free to find and friend me.

4. Current tv obsession: Korean dramas. You guys, Kdramas are awesome. Anyone who wants to give or receive recommendations, hit me.

5. Is the Stargate fandom still a thing? Bear was asking me questions about my SG-1 DVDs the other day, and it set me wondering.

6. I know the Supernatural fandom must still be a thing because the show is still running, somehow. I recently watched Season 8 after some time away from the show. Can't say I am overwhelmed with love for the show, anymore, but it was nice to have the boys back on my tv. Not every episode is a good one, but every episode makes me laugh and want to hug a Winchester at least once.

7. LONG TIME NO SEE HOW ARE YOU GUYS DOING??? *tacklehugs*

Hi, long time no see.

Ah, you noticed the awful "new Lj" layout, which is why mine is set to the old one.


Aww don't they grow up so fast. It doesn't seem that long ago since you were putting up the "Plotty fingers" picture.

Does Bear like Stargate and does he ever confuse Daniel Jackson with Daddy? In one of the pics you put up his dad could be Daniel's brother, if he had one.

Yeah, the new layout is...a little off-putting. Oh well.

Bear actually hasn't seen Stargate yet because I felt like I should save something for when he's a little older and can better understand what's going on. He's already seen Star Wars and Avatar and Justice League so I thought I'd save SG-1 for a few more years.

He did ask me not that long ago if a picture of Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter was Daddy. So.

Glad to see you around these parts!

Cute picture, and good luck with the move. Especially if all the bins of toys are being emptied onto the floor versus, uh, being packed...

Haha, yeah, Theo is just at that stage where Empty Everything Out of the Box is his favorite game. It could have come at a better time.

You . . . look familiar. Do I know you from somewhere? I'm getting a sense of cheese. And pointy ears.

I kid! (Or iKid.) I see you on FB.

Winchesters are still huggable, though S9 is equal parts hug, followed by a firm cuff upside the head. I'm still watching the show, though I stopped doing my review-like thingies about the time something I call Baby J showed up. You've seen him, I'm sure.

I've been meaning to e-mail you and Izhi about RL stuffs.

I must admit, I've missed having you around these parts. *tacklehugs*

I definitely wan to hear how you're doing in real life. We could chat on the phone, if that would be easier than finding time to actually sit at the computer and type. Whatever works for you, new mama!

1. i'll drag out my one piece of advice about moving; don't label any box with DVDs, CDs or other electronic/video game things as such (use something boring, like kitchen stuff). just in-case any pro movers are less than honest or a box ends up in the wrong apartment or something.

he's four?! wow....time flies.

about #5; it's less of a "thing" than it used to be.

Bill is hiring some of his students to move us so I doubt that would be a problem, but that does sound like good advice, generally, I'll keep it in mind in future.

OMG HI.

LiveJournal in general is kind of dying out in favor of Tumblr, but since I gave up on Tumblr out of sheer annoyance a while ago, I'm still here (well, I never left) even if I don't post that much. Sometimes I'll remember you and miss you, but now I see that you're busy looking after TWO Mini-Yous.

Nice to hear from you and get an update!

I can see how Tumblr would be sort of replacing LJ, it's so heavy with fandom stuff. I do enjoy reading Tumblr (I have one, which I use exclusively for lurking) but I am totally flummoxed by interacting with other users on it. There are no comments! Just endless reblogs of what people said! Chaos!

::squishes you gleefully::

Stargate is still a thing! A smaller thing with other social platforms around, but still a thing. We're having a Gen Fic Day (yes, they still exist) in late May. :)

So good to have you around again! And much joy for your little ones.

Aw, it would be fun to do a parody script or something for Gen Fic Day. I haven't written anything in ages. Dealing with Bear all day every day sucks up every ounce of creativity I possess, most of the time. Though I admit, I do enjoy coming up with answers to all the hypotheticals he comes up with, right now. Everything from, "What if we lived on the moon?" to, "What if I had four arms?"

4 1/2?! How is that possible?! I guess it has been a while.

I'm still following SG-1 fandom and on very rare occasions write something; I can't do Fig's ficathon this time because I'm just too busy . . . and I just remembered that I don't think I read all the entries from the last time she held one.

GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN!

I know, he's going to be five in September. I just don't even know how that happened. He's so awesome and infuriating.

Hi there! I was just wondering about you the other day--what you were up to, and so on! Can't believe that Bear is that old, and Theodore is adorably cute! I hardly ever have time to say anything anymore, but I still read here almost every day (um, except for this past week--on vacation), so I hope you'll have a chance to be around more often!

Terry!! Hi! Yeah, I've been super busy myself due to moving house for the first time in seven years. Blech. It has not been fun. But I do hope to pop in here every once in a while. I will look forward to seeing you. Hope the vacation was awesome! How old are your girls now?

Timelet is 17 (graduating on Sunday...o_O) and TinyTimelet is 11! If you get a friend request on FB from an unknown Illinois person, that's me--I don't do fandom on there, but I do pictures and life stuff, which is more than I'm managing on LJ at the moment, so. :)

I am mind blown that you have a kid that is graduating soon. Bzuh. But I guess I shouldn't be since I'm pretty sure I brought Bear home in his little preemie-sized onsie, like, a week ago...and right now he's acting out a hospital scene with Star Wars figures (one of the Stormtroopers has cancer, which is being played by blue silly putty).

I don't think I got a friend request from you but I will keep an eye out for one, in case you decide to send one. I do fandom and family stuff and everything on Facebook because I am not considerate enough to spare my aunts and grandmas from having to be confused by my posts about Doctor Who.
