short life notes  
1.  In the little strip at the top of my flist, I like how LJ says, switch to the new version and "try to customize it."  try. Not filling me with a lot of confidence there, LJ.

2.  My FMM bracket is already getting messy.  LJ, DO NOT FAIL ME WITH BRITTA, TOO. *shakes fist*

3.  Allergies, omg. Not only the sneezing but they've flared up my asthma, so I sound like I'm dying of some operatic disease..

4. bsg_epics is running a BSG BIG BANG CHALLENGE.  10K minimum. I have signed up for Black Sails, in the hope that the shame of it will motivate an earlier finish, since I don't actually have 10K words left in the thing.  Place ass in chair. Open file. Finish story. Really, it's not that hard, self.

5. Chaperoned the field trip to the Science Center to herd the little ducklings around the Ecosystems  and the Endeavour exhibit. Looking at a display of all the space shuttles, some of the  boys did not realize that two of them had been destroyed and I had to correct one of the boys' hopeful ideas that no, the astronauts hadn't been able to use the rescue hatch and escape...  *sad*   It was odd for me to realize they didn't even know, as the Challenger's destruction is one of my earliest distinct "where were you when you heard" memories.  (and some of you weren't born yet, I know. *g*)  On a happier note it is a completely awesome exhibit, and the model of the future hall shows something that'll be stunning when it's finished.

6. My Black Widow fantabulous action figure is almost here!  It was my, um, birthday present, so it's about 6 mos late, but yay, it's finally on the way!  Possibly just in time for Natasha campaigning for FMM. ;)

1. Im sticking with the old lj until they force the new one upon me. I haven't heard good things at all about the new one, which isn't surprising given the other chances they have made.

2. My FMM has already failed me! :( Most of mine didn't even make it past the first round. Good luck on yours though

well, I was doing okay in the bracket right up UNTIL NATASHA LOST. BOOOOOOO. Damn I had her going down in the final four!

and yeah, I think it's encouraging LJ is at least allowing customizing for the flist. so it'll probably be okay by the time they rip the old style away. But not soon, I'm old and set in my ways! :)

1. I wonder how it looks like. I can't see it (on my basic account only old one is visible) but from the comments I imagine something like new blastr layout but I hope it's not that bad.

3. Ugh. My asthma got so bad that when I went to see the doctor on Monday they not only changed all my drugs and gave me oral steroids and emergency nebuliser but even did EKG (spirometry and lung x-ray after I stabilise). Spring, I always say, is only nice when seen from inside the plastic bubble.

When I tested the new layout it was very much like the basic default layout, but at the time there was no customization - so I would think that as they add in options, it'll probably be fine. People do tend to bitch about any little change. I still like mine best of course so I'm not changing until they make me. :)

OOOOH plastic bubble! I want one of those so badly. You totally have my sympathies - I'm not that bad but yeah, definitely the same road. UGH. Take care of yourself!

O_o @_@ In all of the crazy, I forgot about FMM. I forgot about one of my favorite fandom events. I...I don't quite know what to do.
