The weather is quite horrible at the minute. It's more or less constant downpour, and roads have been flooded and kids having to be rescued from mountain campsites because their route out is now a riverbed.

The postman we have at the minute is a pain in the neck. I live in number xx5, and last week I got a letter for xx7, and today two for xx9. It's not that I mind running up the road and sticking them through the right door, it's not like it's in the ountry where the next-door neighbour is half a mile up the road and two lanes, but it does make me wonder where my post is going. I was expecting a letter from occupational health, and nothing's come yet.

For those who cannot keep up with LJ's 8787 official announcement communities (I hadn't heard of these two either until [ profile] __kali__ pointed them out):

Change to Suspend Journal--looks like a one-post lock-down

A load of stuff, including the long-promised journal search and stats, although the way they're implementing it looks more like stalking than stats (there is an opt-out) All I want to see is my referrals, LJ.
Hey, fandomers! Go and vote in the LJ Advisory Board elections! Here's why.
[ profile] selenak posted that she has just passed her 5-year LJ anniversary, which made me realise that mine was last month. (Ooops.) I started this journal on 03/04/03. In one way it seems like a long time ago, but in another, no.

The weather here is beautiful, really summer-like. And Ben and Jerry's in Castlecourt was giving out free ice cream today, yay!

Oooh! LJArchive has started working for me again! For about three years it hasn't been. Well, that's one good thing that's come out of the latest LJ debacle.

You are the typical teenager
You can hear the frequency of the mosquito teen repellent - but probably not for much longer!

The highest pitched ultrasonic mosquito ringtone that I can hear is 17.7kHz
Find out which ultrasonic ringtones you can hear!

I can just about hear the 17.7 Hz; above that I can hear the speakers click but nothing else. Still, not bad for someone who hasn't been a teenager since 2003.
Is it just me, or has Livejournal been a bit quiet the last few weeks?

I tell you what. Rec me someone you think should be on my flist but isn't.

We finally got a mass privacy editing tool!

Plus a lot of other stuff, including ads on site pages to logged-out users, sigh.

Adblock Plus is the best Firefox extension in the world ever. Even when I'm logged out, all I see is a wilted shrunken frame where the ad used to be. :)

My dad has bought nine pairs of jeans. He says he's going to make them last for four years. I'm being tempted to do the same with slippers, because they have some nice ones in Next and normally it's so hard to get ones that don't fall off or look granny-ish. But I'm already going to be broke after I pay for going to this wedding and for new stuff for my room next month.

I've editted my tags so that all the spaces are now underscores. It makes it easier for visitors who don't know that now you have to replace '+' in the URL with '%20'. LiveJournal have only had this feature for a month and they've broken it already. However, the underscores do look rather ugly. I hope they fix this soon.
This is a nifty tool available from

Okay, bored now, I'll do the highlights:

padmé is 70, hornblower 60, skywalker and keitin 50. bail is 45, so is neville and draco is 44. (By that reckoning they're a better ship than R/Hr. This is all [ profile] ajhalluk's doing.) Chocolate is 41, canon, Wedge and TARDIS (!) are 40. Vader is 29, Solo 29, Adam is 27 (bwah?), natalie is 17, luna is 15, mickey is 12, artoo is 10.

I used bloody 18 times, icon 34.

Comments: [ profile] ladyaeryn (87) and [ profile] ravenclaw_devi (82) are in first and second place, [ profile] ivylore (60), [ profile] snarkel (55) and [ profile] padawanroo (54) are well up there, and [ profile] yubsie's (49) determined spamming campaign (no one does it like the HM's) has let her overtake [ profile] doyle_sb4 (44).
An attempt to start a meme:

Which icon of mine can't you stand?

There are lots of icons that are cheesy, fuzzy, obscene, have epilepsy-inducing animation or annoyingly small text, or were obviously made badly in Paint. You like the person, you just can't stand their icon when it turns up in your flist.

So. Which of my icons is like nails-on-a-blackboard for you? Comment and post this in your own journal.
LiveJournal have disabled logging in as a community, and there's no way to switch user when using So rather than pasting in one text file of commands to change the URLs for the moodtheme of [ profile] lukelovers, I have to use, and paste in the URL 132 times. And the stupid thing doesn't work half time and wants to inherit moods from others and won't save changes.

I have made an ESB layout. Overrides from [ profile] pamelajoy

Myers-Briggs )

ISTP? No way! INTP 1st and INFP 2d makes a lot of sense, though.
I looked at my To-Do List, and realised that there's nothing on it since my graduation on the 9th of July. A to-do list on a computer is very useful when you're sitting at a computer all day, but not otherwise. I should delete the stuff, but it makes me feel productive.

Also, has anyone ever come across such a thing as a floor plan of the Millennium Falcon? Also a map of the GFFA, like the ones they have in the endpapers of the NJO books. I refuse to buy EU just for the map!

ETA: Yesterday [ profile] doyle_sb4 told me that [ profile] connorbeast spotted me in the Science Library. He knew it was me because 'there can't be two girls in Queen's with a livejournal with a picture of Mark Hamill on it.'
Hem. Well, it's kind of amusing. I have actually met [ profile] connorbeast in the flesh a couple of times, but I don't know his real name. *grin*

I've made a new layout (featuring the one and only Princess Leia), and set up some friends filters. My flist was getting unmanagable, and it was driving me crazy. I have My Communities, Star Wars fans, Harry Potter fans, and the handmaidens, who are all crazy anyway. *huggles* [ profile] katsaris and [ profile] doyle_sb4 lose out, but I won't forget you!

I've been trying to keep all personal stuff friends-locked, so when I have these filters, does anyone have any preference for seeing it or not? Comment and I shall sort you all like one 1000-year-old hat.
