persuna: (A lot to read)
And, if anyone is interested, I have done the placeholder cursory account thing over at dreamwidth, where I am also persuna.

I wish I could remember everyone who said they had one now...

Edit: Also, I am not sure I have enabled crossposting properly at all. I may give up in disgust now. It's not like I plan to use it much anyway.

So I'm trying out a new layout (which I got from [ profile] premade_ljs) but I'm just not sure. It's very very pretty, but I think I miss the sidebar. And I definitely want it to be wider. But all the free custom layouts I've found about the place have been either clunky or narrow. I just don't know! I'm so confused! I'm sick of Urban Sunset but I also hate change!

ETA This one is slightly wider. I think. *squints* I'll give it a day at least.

ETA 2 I'm unreasonably proud of myself for managing to bold the date on entry titles. Although I actually wanted to bold the whole title. But I did manage to uncapitalize titles, change the font and add my name to the header. CLEARLY I MISSED MY CALLING AS A COMPUTER PROGRAMER.

I tried to clear some icon space by deleting redundant icons... and ended up with three icons of Sam/Jared's legs to replace them. And I already miss my "easily amused" icon, even if I never used it because I mainly comment and it always seems vaguely insulting in the moment. I really should try and get rid of one/two of my three "Sam cries" icons, but he does it so well I can't bear it! All represent a different facet of Sam's tears! There's lighthearted, sincere and Dean's death specific. I need all those! This must be what packing is like for people who love shoes.

Despite the fact I have felt like I was doing things all day I have somehow managed to achieve next to nothing. Well, I cleared out my message settings on LJ, but I don't think that had any functional purpose, they were just so messy. When I first started using LJ I didn't realise that you would automatically be notified if someone replied to a comment, so I tracked every comment I made, hence the mess.

I just saw that my post to spnstoryfinders had been accepted by it appearing on someone else's flist as I read it. Oddly disconcerting. And now I'm worried I screwed up my message settings because no one told me yet and there's normally a notification.

I also discovered a white hair. One long, white, fragile looking hair atached to my scalp. It's not the first one I've found, but I was kind of hoping the one I found over the summer was a freak accident where someone else's hair fell on my head and then got tangled in a way that made it feel like it was attached to my head. I'm only 22! My mum went white in her early twenties, but my dad is still only streaky with a little grey and I thought I was safe because while my mum's hair is thick, straight, luxuriously frizzless and black I have my dad's temperamental, flyaway, curly-on-a-good-day brown hair. How is it fair that I have the worst of both worlds? I realise it's going to be a slow degeneration that probably won't be noticeable for years but still... *pouts*

However to console myself I bought nice shampoo and conditioner. You don't know how awful your hair can look until you have used the cheapest own brand shampoo and conditioner you can find for 6 months or so, triggering a slide into dull frizzy formlessness that is slow enough that you don't realise it's happening and forget your hair used to look better. And then you fail to buy more and are forced to sneakily use your flatmate's Fructis shampoo and in only one wash you're confronted with the shocking proof that some shampoos actually are better than others. It's not all advertising hype! I'm still skeptical about the worth of the truly extortionate designer ones, but I am so shelling out an extra pound or so for brand name from now on, student budget be damned. Of course, if I hadn't started admiring my hair I could have lived in blissful ignorance of my impending old age a while longer, but there's no going back now. And apparently my new shampoo is going to smell of cinnamon. Mmmm.

I can't believe I have written a whole post about my hair and boring lj minutiae. Apparently today I am dull and somewhat vain. But it's written now, so it's going up anyway!

I had just learned all those html codes for formatting stuff on lj, and now suddenly lj's rich text supports Safari. I may or may not continue to soldier on with the old style. I can be pointless like that. 

I have done none of the things I was meant to do today. I did make a really, really delicious pot of stew. It took hours and hours (holy crap keyboard shortcuts for formatting work!) so I think it counts as an achievement. It's so delicious that it even makes up for how guilty I feel chopping meat up in the kitchen when all my flatmates are either vegetarian or vegan. And I want the weather to be cold for a day or two now so I can continue to eat it (I made a really huge pot and for once no one else is going to eat my food when I'm not paying attention) all warm and rich in little bowls with bread and a spoon. Mmmmm. 

Okay. I'm done with food now. And one day maybe I shall have the willpower to return to vegetarianism. Maybe.
