I suppose I ought to hop on the bandwagon o' wank and offer my thoughts on the Luceti drama that went down yesterday.
... haha psyche like that's ever going to happen. |D......
I am of the opinion my personal journal is not a fitting soapbox for talking about a game I mod. Many of you are players in said game, as well as my friends, and honestly I think it's inappropriate to put all of you in a position where you are unable to decide if you ought to be responding to me as a friend or as a player. This is just my own personal stance! I do not speak for the other mods at all when I say this. But if I ever do talk about issues in Luceti, it's going to be in private, and that's it. At least, my personal issues.
However, there are a few things I would like to say in a general sense. Well, maybe less than "a few." Mostly I would just like to say that there seems to be this perception that we, as mods, aren't listening. Believe you me, I listen. Yae verily, I stalk. I religiously follow anon comm and with every HMD I track the mod/game thread with my personal journal. As long as it's said in the vicinity of an anonymous space I know about it. And I am probably thinking about it.
A lack of response from the mods on a particular issue doesn't mean we haven't heard you. What it may mean is that we aren't able to come to a decision yet -- or that we have, but can't make any announcements at that point in time for whatever reason.
Regardless, y'all can sleep soundly at night knowing we hear you. (Good lord, do we hear you.) Just be aware that even if we hear you, sometimes our hands are tied -- be it temporarily or for a longer period of time.
I frankly do have a Lot Of Thoughts about what happened but eh. |D LIKE I SAID, that's for another place at another time.
ngl, that song and video were going through my head as I read anon comm at work this morning. Not for any particular relation to the wank at hand but for the sheer ridiculousness factor of it. I couldn't help but be like "|D............................." at the whole thing...
And yeah I guess I will leave this unlocked. :O So feel free to comment anonymously or whatever... but I log IP's so there's that. You can rest assured I'm probably not going to hunt anyone down? 8| I'm too lazy.
PS doing a minor f-cut. Just of journals that haven't updated in ages and ages (and there are a few in that category I am keeping just ... because I can), so no worries.
Oh, and also of people that have duplicate journals/have moved to new journals. If y'all get the notifs and for some reason want me to keep the old LJ's (or I, for some hare-brained reason, managed to remove the wrong one), just lemme know here.
Emily's Secret Starbucks Barista Tips #1:
Don't pour your excess hot coffee or tea out into the garbage, please. It can actually melt the trashbags and get your baristas all disgustng later when the trash needs to be taken out.
If you like a lot of room for milk, I suggest instead asking for an inch at the top of your tea/coffee, and we'll give you a full inch. Or, ask for a tall in a grande cup (or a grande in a venti cup) for extra EXTRA room.
Oh, and just to get this out there, since the timing is probably (maybe?) a little suspicious:
I just want it clear my combo drop and hiatus at Luceti legitimately have less than nothing to do with anything on the anonmeme. What happened on there was not even that big of a deal. I'd been considering both these things for a few days, decided on doing them tonight, and them BAM, sup anonmeme.
I have no idea if anyone would even make this connection, but just in case! I'll leave this post public, too.
Though I'm not turning off IP address logging, so if you want to comment anonymously, you do so at your own risk, brosis. |Db
But seriously, working at Starbucks is amazing but beyond exhausting and I had no idea my feet were even capable of hurting so much. This was basically an issue of BRB PRIORITIZING. :|b
/rolls off to bed for early start tomorrow
And you know--
I get a lot of randoms showing up on My Guests, and sometimes I can figure out where they come from, but most of the time I have no idea. There's a lot of anonymous hits (even when I haven't posted for days) and I wonder just how many of those are people on my flist, and just how many are curious watchers, because I actually seem to get a lot of those -- there are even a few regulars that I see cropping up now and again.
I wonder if you are actually curious about me. I am curious about you, too.
Which I guess makes this post an invitation for anyone who does drop by to see more than my profile -- say hi, I won't bite.
Is that weird? I hope that's not weird. Hello, world.
I will be really shocked if anybody actually takes me up on this, though! I mean, it would be cool. But shocking!

Breaking News: Obama orders hospitals to grant same-sex couples visitation rightsPresident Obama signed an order Thursday night requiring hospitals to allow gays and lesbians to have non-family visitors and to grant their partners medical power of attorney.
The president ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to prohibit discrimination in hospital visitation. The memo is scheduled to be made public Friday morning, according to an administration official and another source familiar with the White House decision.
An official said the new rule will affect any hospital that receives Medicare or Medicaid funding.
