Got a lot of what I wanted to get done done last night, plus signed the petition to let LJ know we're not all that happy with them right now. I don't actually have much of a problem with the changes as they stand - although the new info pages are truly fugly and Vox? Hello? Permanent account here... - but the lack of consultation, the extreme back-handedness of it all just irks me. So I followed nwhepcat's lead and added my year of birth to my profile and added "lj not vox" to my interests (still not coming up as a link though - odd that...). If you've not heard about it, basically it seems that LJ's new parent company 6apart are attempting to re-brand LJ to bring it into the teen market in direct competition with MySpace, and are introducing a new blogging site called Vox aimed at the older user. Like I say, I don't really have a problem with this as it stands, it doesn't affect my account really, but the redesign of the public pages that seems to be going along with this rebrand is ill-advised to say the least.
Anyways... got some writing to do today, it was the one thing off my list I never touched last night. So Veronica is still sitting in her car wondering just what the hell that noise was... I should get to it really. Oh, quick question. How common are storms in Southern California - I'm talking serious storms, wind, rain, thunder etc. Not hurricaine level, but definitely gales. Common enough not to be all that remarkable or something odd?
Today's to do list
2 - finish VM/DW ficlet
3 - start/finish AtS/DW ficlet
4 - work on any other ficlets that demand to be written
5 - (at home) finalise portfolio/CV
6 - finish T&C mood theme
Doable, I think.
Oh - and lookit this!
Yay!! Chapter 3 will be coming along soon, but I did it! Go Team Me! (the banner's acting as a link to the fic by the way - and I am so behind on the comments, sorry!)
And I realised last night that I'm making a huge mistake with the icons I'm making for 100days100icons - I've started at the end of the two episodes and am working backwards. Which means if I want to post them sequentially, then I kinda have to have all 100 done by the weekend. Or start at the beginning and meet myself somewhere in the middle.
