deep time  
I looked back at my entries page and realized that I've essentially been away from LJ for 4 years, not 2. It's like an entire geological era has occurred. You could mine my LJ for fossils. There are in fact dinosaurs in my user pics.

I feel old. But at least when I turn 42 next month the meaning of life will be revealed.

You were here in spirit, whenever a kink meme was memed. (And, amusingly, when a fangirl started a no-kink zone comm that disallowed EVERYTHING on your list. Strangely, she was the only person who ever posted to her comm, at least the last time I looked.)

Ha! That's hilarious. *g* Let's see, that would mean among other things, no strong female characters, no amnesia, no anti-heroes or aristocrats, no AUs, beards for men forbidden...awesome. *glee*

Strangely enough I started revising and expanding the kink list just last night for my own amusement. I couldn't get my headphones to work consistently so I couldn't focus on torrents, and someone sent me an e-mail comment on that entry, so I just went with that.

A lot of what I wanted to capture in a list like that is done so much better by tvtropes.org, I've discovered, but I don't think they index any hard-core sex themes. Also they're labyrinthine and you can get lost there for days skipping from page to page...love that site.

Hey, good to see you back!
Anna S.: john-floaty-dotseliade on December 29th, 2010 03:25 am (UTC)
Thank you! :) Your icon makes me beam. I need to rewatch Firefly. Or for a quick Fillion fix, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog....

I'm really glad to see you, dear.
Anna S.: dh-peaceeliade on December 29th, 2010 03:28 am (UTC)
You too. *squishy hug where I face-plant in your neck*

:)

I love that you mention dinosaurs because your journal introduced me to Dinosaur Comics. I am happy to see you here again.

Sweet! I love pimping a good thing successfully. *g* It's good to know I have a little mojo working there, because I have all these diversely different things I've been wanting to share--web sites, singers, movies, bath soap even. I've been resisting against making a huge random post of recs and raves. Need to parcel stuff out so that it's not just so much noise....

Thank you for welcoming me back. :) *hug*

At your next birthday, you will *be* the meaning of life. :)

Ah ha...so by reverse deduction I was created by mice to eventually answer the question, "How many roads must a man walk down?" I knew it! :D

I really need an icon of mice. (For some reason "icon of mice" evokes the phrase "flagon of gin." I wonder if I can make the liquor store before it closes....)

Well, there you are! I have a FB friend request pending with you if you do the FB thing. If not, please feel free to ignore! I do think of you, though, and wish you all kinds of well. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
Anna S.: flowereliade on December 23rd, 2010 08:12 pm (UTC)
Hi! :) How does that work, the friends request thing? I looked in e-mail and poked around the UI but am not sure what I'm looking for...? Does it accomplish the same thing if I just manually add you as a friend?

On the up side -- and believe me, it is an up side -- you missed some truly amazing cases of !Fail!, wank, and All Fandom Plunged into War.
Anna S.: cat-blueeliade on December 29th, 2010 03:40 am (UTC)
I've heard that! And am so very, very glad. :) hug*

I turn 42 next month, too! I'm hoping *something* will be revealed. The meaning of life would be a nice bonus. (:
Anna S.: cupcakeseliade on December 29th, 2010 03:43 am (UTC)
Hey, cool--is your birthday the 24th? That would be neat. :)

(My housemate's birthday is the same as mine--she's the nice one; I like to think it's why the arrangement has worked out as long as it has, even though I'm a terrible tenant in key ways.)

Do you have mice, btw? You could ask them for a hint of what's to come.

Heeeee! Really? They didn't tell *me* when i was 42. Unfair, unfair!

*pets your dinosaur icon*

Look, i have one, too! :)
Anna S.: dino-rodney-pianoeliade on December 29th, 2010 03:44 am (UTC)
Yes, they really should mail some paperwork when the day arrives. *frowny face*

Now your icon is J/R "Geeks in Love!" But I also see small stuffed dinosaurs if I squint sideways on a Tuesday. ;D

coincidence
Today, feeling nostalgic, I started rereading Season Noir after not having touched any Buffy fic for years. I decided to go looking for you online. Quite a coincidence that you just started posting to your LJ again after a long absence.

Anyway, I wanted to say, I'd forgotten how much I enjoy your writing. Your word choices are so eloquent and unique. It's a pleasure to be back in the Noir--even tho' I know there's no ending. It doesn't matter.

Happy holidays.

Hey, there are dinosaurs in my user pics, too!
Bonethisisbone on December 23rd, 2010 09:13 pm (UTC)
And we are still right here! Well, many of us, anyway... *hugs*
LadyCatladycat777 on December 24th, 2010 01:07 am (UTC)
Actually, I think you timed it just right. There was several years of EpicFailSquared and occasionally Infinitied. We're all exhausted from it and verging into insane political correctness.

Which means we're all in desperate need of you.
laazikaatlaazikaat on December 28th, 2010 02:40 am (UTC)
Damn, I must have missed the memo when I turned 42. Lovely to see you, please stay.

humbly
I have a printed copy of Both Natures in the drawer next to my bed along with 10 or so other people's Buffyfics which have occasionally given me reason to live. I tried to find you to tell you but you were gone. I am very happy you are back. And because I am very old, I already know that the meaning of life is anything you want it to be.
