[sticky entry] Sticky: let me introduce myself, I'm someone of beer wealth and champagne taste

So there are friending memes and things going around and people might see me around and want to get to know me a little! Therefore, this post. (Which is edited from its initial version, because I decided to turn it into my sticky post.)

I am increasingly posting almost everything under lock instead of publicly. I do not particularly care for this change, but certain persons who I do not care to name make it necessary.

I tend to grant access in sporadic batches, after I have got to know people well enough to recognize your respective handles. I realize this is an approach that, in combination with the previous paragraph, makes it difficult to make friends.

A note about journal rules: Don't be ableist. Don't be racist. Don't be sexist or homophobic or transphobic or or or or. I'm not perfect on any of these issues, I admit, but to the best of your ability, keep the bigotry out of my journal.

If you have been banned from my journal and still wish to speak to me? Don't.

In other news, survived the move. (I could have sworn I told DW that but my journal disagrees.) Dear Gods do I wish I'd remembered I possess Bengay, Aspercreme, and Icy Hot yesterday.

If everyone who does this sort of thing could send me strength / healing energy today, I would very much appreciate it. There will be PEOPLE. Including PARENTS. And MANY LOTS DECISIONS. To say nothing of PHYSICALLY TRANSPORTING ALL THIS CRAP.

Every time I watch Disney's 1991 Beauty and the Beast, I spy a detail I missed before. This time, it's the asylum director's little giving-orders hand wave right before his minions grab Maurice.

Ran out of that, switched to Mulan. Belatedly occurs to me, the first character we meet, the wall guard who lights the signal fire? Died five seconds after Shan Yu said "Perfect."

Thea is sitting on the windowsill, in front of the open window, scratching.

I must not have brushed her enough lately 'cause it's snowing cat hair.
