I am bored.

I can't write, can't think, I'm filled with ennui, and I want to be out in the garden doing stupid-hard work, but it's going to be 100F, so I shouldn't be an idiot, right? (I have a total of - wait for it - 800lbs of decomposed granite to spread out. Oh, decomposed just means it's been crushed and tumbled so there are no sharp points. I actually like doing this sort of thing, it's great exercise and I like being able to DO it, if that makes sense? But yeah. It's hot.) Bleh.

So! I get to be with my in laws all day tomorrow which means today I am mentally preparing myself for all of the craziness. And so? I POLL!



*there is no scientific significance to this poll, so the first person that takes this shit seriously and corrects me on something - as happens almost EVERY TIME I DO A POLL, INEXPLICABLY - is the first person getting shoved into the pool while fully clothed. :D

Do you have a personal Tumblr?
stoney321
Jul. 3rd, 2012 06:54 pm (UTC)
Well, it's the one I use to promote HDJM, but I use it for personal things, as well. heydontjudgeme.tumblr.com

I still don't get tumblr. There are pretty pictures, and I've read fic/meta there, but... Yeah. IDK.

And the other site I spend the most time on is AO3, because I loves my porn fanfic.

I really enjoy things about Tumblr. I really hate things about Tumblr, too. It's not a place for interaction, that's for sure (and I'm always *askance* when people try to use it that way.) Um, Tumblr is for scrolling.

AO3!!!! I love that site. <3

I spend too much time on Facebook, playing games. It's very sad. And addictive. And can you spare some energy, or some amber, or a crystal shard, OMG, I'm THISCLOSE to completing my latest quest, and then - damn it, another quest?

Seriously, these games are TORTURE for me. I have to FINISH EVERYTHING BUT THERE'S ALWAYS MORE OH CRAP.

I have almost completely dumped Facebook, honestly. But then, that's more a reflection of who's on my flist there than anything else.

EVERYONE DID SO IT IS FINE SHE DOESN'T REALLY COUNT.

I'm with you on Tumblr. I like it for the pretties, but I don't want to interact socially there. It's not easy to do, it's not presented in a way that can be meaningful, so... It's for looking. Which is fine. (Well, you can have A comment, or maybe two, but it gets cumbersome if you want to have a conversation.)

I'm there with you (again - I like being with you, okay, Sam?) on LJ, too. I miss the fun I used to have here, but it requires participants. And there are less of them lately.

PORN PORN PORNY BUTTS IRON MAN.

Just a tiiiiny correction: I think you may have meant "LOL butts." LOL, an ancronym for "Laugh(ing) Out Loud," is properly spelled with capital letters.

Also your mom says hi.

Well, I have a restraining order against my mom, so I hope you like going to jail.

Correction, jail is a place you're thrown overnight for getting sloppy drunk. Prison is where you'll be rooming with my mother, and I hope you're proud of yourself, because she is awful.

In conclusion, lol. (And I'm happy you chose correctly on #1.)

I spend a significant portion of my online time at news sites (Washington Post, Guardian UK, Slate, Comedy Central, and, occasionally, New York Times. I used to read the LA Times online, but they're only for pay now.)

Spending a lot of time sorting out my family tree so www.ancestry.co.uk, Genes Reunited and Find My Past. Furthest back is in my mother's family: James Ascroft born 1660, before The Great Fire of London. I can't get over the fact that a)I know his name and b) he lived 6 miles away from where I live. What can I say? My family are just not explorers!
stoney321
Jul. 3rd, 2012 07:27 pm (UTC)
You can thank the Mormons for all of that wonderful genealogy on Ancestry.com! Or you know, be irritated. I love having all of that information, too, I must admit. (It's fun finding out about your family. Heh, even if they weren't explorers. :D)

My internet is for work, gaming, email, news and current affairs, keeping up with fambly, reading stuff, getting sucked into the black time hole of Cracked, shopping omg the shopping, self-diagnosis of weird illnesses, LJ and a little light twittering (but not Facebook), banking and bill-paying, recipes, pictures of cats, inspiration and research for house building/renovation, and watching the weather radar.

My power was off for two days recently, and my entire life went down with it.
stoney321
Jul. 3rd, 2012 07:28 pm (UTC)
SO YOU USE THE INTERNET LIKE I DO I APPROVE AND CARRY ON.

Hogod, it is the WORST THING when you all of a sudden don't have access to the outside world. I feel like I've been dropped into an apocalyptic hellscape when my wifi goes down.

THIS IS SUCH A SCIENTIFIC POLL OMG.

I feel like I WANT to be on lj as much as I used to, but I can read my flist like, ten times in five minutes. and when I post I feel like, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, LETS INTERACT PEOPLE COME ON and half the times its like...pffffffffft. I guess thats why I'm on twitter more esp at night when a lot of people I know are on because its a LOT more interactive and I need like, INSTANT GRATIFICATION WHEN I POST SOMETHING lol.

tumblr is fun! and pretty! and has pictures! and thats literally all it does for me.
stoney321
Jul. 3rd, 2012 07:42 pm (UTC)
I TAKE MY RESEARCH FUCKING SERIOUSLY OKAY IT IS WHO I AM.

I feel the SAME WAY about LJ and I get a sadface about how it used to be. (Hahaha, I'm right there with you on the instant gratification aspect. ME, TOO.)

That's just about what Tumblr is for me, too. I see people refer to it as their blog and I'm all... how?

I'm afraid to tell you about this, but I really spend the vast majority of my internet time on Reddit

Now... within the greater reddit, is something I always wonder if you would enjoy, namely the subreddit (like a subforum) for Ex-Mormons

Reddit is also where I find news articles, political updates, cute pictures of animals, and things that make me question the intelligence of human beings in the publishing industry.

There is more. You could probably make a subreddit for HDJM and reach a wider audience too.
stoney321
Jul. 3rd, 2012 08:31 pm (UTC)
Why would you be afraid of that? If I can control myself with metafilter, I can control myself with Reddit. (Hee!)

Ooh, that's not a bad idea!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
