I'm Back!

OMG you guys, it's good to be back!

So in case you missed it, I was offline for about 2 weeks while my computer was in the Apple Shoppe to have its swollen battery replaced.

Apparently when laptop batteries swell they can explode? Who knew? *wibbles*

Fortunately, mine didn't... )
TL:DR, I was computer-less for an unexpectedly long time. :((
Alas, there was no writing, although there was Seeker's Notes and Pinterest to console me. ;)

A special thank you to [personal profile] dreamy_dragon73 for the LJ nudge, to [personal profile] lilyseyes for posting my edition of the [community profile] sshp_prophet for me this week, and to [personal profile] torino10154 for posting 2 weeks worth of [community profile] snarry100 prompts as well as last week's [community profile] snape100 and [community profile] dracoharry100's prompts for me. You all rock! ♥

OH! And special smooches for [personal profile] mrs_sweetpeach and [personal profile] digthewriter for the Valentine's cards! Muah!

Right, so what have I missed?
Tell me everything, bbs. ♥

For anyone who was eligible to vote in the US elections in 2016 and didn't, let this be a lesson.


I'm off to drink some wine now. It's the only way I can cope wth this day. :(((

I know this is early since it's been less than a month since I returned from my last Harry Potter convention, but 2019 is shaping up to be a major convention year.

So far I'm contemplating FOUR conventions. (!!!)

1. Misticon: I'm definitely attending. I already have early-bird con tickets and room reservations. *g*

2. Leakycon - Boston: I'm planning to go. [personal profile] titti will hopefully be successful in her efforts to get tickets since they can go fast. Plus, Boston in October will be perfect weather. :)

3. Potterversecon: I wasn't sure they'd throw this one again since apparently attendance was lower this year than last, but they made it sound like they planned to, so it's on the potential list.

4. LEVIOSA 2019! [personal profile] lilyseyes just sent me a link to their site. The best part of the last Leviosa was that a lot of online fans were there. If it's like that again, I'm totally going since cons for me are all about the people. Although 4 cons in one year is...wow.

And there could be other ones, I have no idea.

Guess I know how I'm spending my vacation days next year. :)

This is a new one on me, but...

Happy Extraterrestrial Abduction Day, everyone!

May your rectal probe be...fun? :P

Welcome to my new monthly game, Haiku!Tag.
As evilly enabled suggested by [personal profile] shaddyr and [personal profile] smallhobbit, here’s the plan.

I’ll post a prompt word, and my own haiku, and you guys write your own based on the word or you can continue mine, whatever you like, in the comments.
And when we’re done, we can post it all at [community profile] poetic_hp.

That work?

And since this is all new, I’m open to suggestions.
If we wanna try other poetic forms, I’m up for that, too, just LMK. <3

Right, so, February Haiku!tag prompt is Valentine

Valentine Haiku )

As a reminder: A Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry following a specific pattern consisting of seventeen syllables in total, divided into three lines of five, seven, and five.

...but in addition to all the regular crap I do in December, I also just signed up for

banner by [personal profile] capitu

because apparently I thought I needed something else to do this month?
*shakes head*

Honestly, it's all Capi's fault. That banner is so cool! <3

I saw this over on Tumblr and thought some of you guys might find it useful.
In fact, I've been on DW for years and I'm even finding it handy. How to move to Dreamwidth and like it.

Also, there was this article talking about the LJ TOS which I found scary interesting.

Do I think Russia is spying on me? Prolly not.
Of course, if you'd asked me 6 months ago if Russia could influence our election, I'd have said no then, too... :P
alisanne: (Default)
Not to panic anyone, but [personal profile] dreamy_dragon73 brought this post to my attention, and reading it makes me concerned that the LJ TOS is more far reaching than any of us imagined. I'm especially perturbed by the bit talking about them being authorized to modify/add images/amend content without notification. :/
Given that possibility, I'm contemplating no longer xposting my stuff to LJ at all. *sigh*
Any thoughts?
alisanne: (Default)
Since we're all (justifiably, IMO) freaked out about LJ's new TOS, this is just a reminder to all who may care that I am Alisanne just about everywhere, and welcome friend requests/subscriptions anywhere.

Find me on:
IJ: [insanejournal.com profile] alisanne
DW: [personal profile] alisanne
AO3: [archiveofourown.org profile] alisanne
Tumblr: [tumblr.com profile] alis-anne
Twitter: [twitter.com profile] alisanne

I have no plans to go anywhere, but apparently they are deleting journals already, so all bets are off. :/

Okay, show of hands.

Who else feels like this should be Friday?
It's been like this all week. Yesterday felt like Thursday, and Tuesday felt like Wednesday.
In Slashchat with [livejournal.com profile] torino10154 we've been talking about how this feels like it should be the end of the week, and right afterward [livejournal.com profile] capitu posted saying the very same thing.

And this isn't only fandom people. I've had several people in my office say the same thing.
So WTF is going on?

*contemplates theories*
Are we fighting the programming?
Are we about to wake up and find we're in a dystopian world? Oh, wait...
What the hell, people?

...but I'm not. I mean, I am *eyes overdue Erised fic* but I'm not, because I keep stopping to think about how I live in a country with a POS man as president, and how people now think it's open season on me because of my color, and on my friends because of who they love, or who they ARE, and I start to get pissed off again.
I meant to catch up on writing drabbles, like [community profile] snarry100, for which I will put up a new prompt later, and [community profile] hogwarts365, which is due tomorrow, but I am not feeling it right now.
All I feel is depressed and bitter and pissed off.
And to the people at work who tried to tell me how just because they voted for Trump it doesn't make them racist? Fuck you!
I had to GTFO before I did or said something bad. I have to work with these people for at least 2 more years. After that? All bets are off.
HOW did this happen? WTF? I just... *exhales*

How do I feel?

I have no words this morning.

Just...WTF, America? WTAF?

Thanks to [insanejournal.com profile] sweetmelodykiss I now have an Imzy account.
Except I have no idea what to do with it. I haven't even posted yet cuz I'm not sure how...
So if any of you are Imzy experts, please help me figure it out?
Also, what am I supposed to be using it for?


Oh, and I'm alisanne there, too. Feel free to friend me!

Okay, so after hearing at Leviosa all about how we should be posting on Tumblr and there are fun people there etc., I tried to post a link to my most recent drabble there, but I can't make HTML work.

The ever so talented [livejournal.com profile] mywitch is doing a yummiliciously sexy project called The ABC's of Severus Snape, Village Broom in which our favorite Potions master gets to do, well, all the yummy peoples.
Anyway, we are up to P in the alphabet, which means it's SNARRY time. Seems only fair, right?
Well, scarily, not everyone agrees, so I need you to don your Snarry Slash hats and go vote for Harry to ride Snape like a broom.
Dudes, if Snarry doesn't win then there's no hope for humanity, I tell you!
Come on, Snarry fen! Represent!

So I have been clinging to the old header bar on my LJ for as long as possible, despite LJ's attempts to make me switch to their new system. Today I noticed the header has changed to their default, as has the posting interface. It's quite aggravating.
Anyway, does anyone know how I can get my old header back? Or am I just screwed? :/

Solved! Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] digthewriter! Mwah! <3

Okay, so for anyone else who loves really awful shark movies, they're making another Sharknado!

Here's the weekly random links. :)

  • Here's a distraction free writing device for those of us who can be easily distracted.

  • I found this to be an interesting article on bisexuality in women.

  • Did you know there is such a things as the World Beard and Moustache Championship? Apparently so. And here I mean hair are some contestants. *blinks*

  • Weird hairstyles are weird. Warning: some are creepy as hell. Like the girl with the hands. *shudders* Some are kinda clever, though. Like the storm cloud. ;)

  • How long would you last in a horror movie? I lasted 83 minutes. How about you?
