Let's start with Livejournal and their new release. Now don't get me wrong, there are things I like about this change! However, a few good changes (that are implemented fairly poorly) don't outweigh the plenty of bad changes that have been made.

Subject lines aren't frivolous trappings. They're at the heart of a lot of things in how LJ is used by a lot of people. Comment pages that are so clunky that some people can't even load pages to say anything!

The shortcut keys are nice. I like ctrl left and ctrl right to go through pages! It's handy! I like the icon browsing too, but it should be optional. Loading 100+ full sized icon is a killer for people with slower connections or older computers. Sure mine can handle it, but there are those that can't.

And to top it all off? Those stupid brothers of mine at all the frosted animal cookies that mum bought for me special, because we'd been talking about them the other day. :( Their excuse was the bag was "already half empty", but even little kids know those bags are always half full of air when you buy them!

Combine this with the fact that I could be stuck with this dying piece of junk laptop for several more months and I just want to break down and cry. I hate crying, but between my hormones and everything else it's so hard not to right now. :(

Oh right. Importing my personal stuff over to DW. I just want a backup if nothing else. http://uninvited.dreamwidth.org/

I only have the one on Amazon currently, it's located here: My Wishlist.

It's a list made up entirely of books. It's got cook books, YA fantasy (O.R. Melling, Victoria Hanley, and more), a few books on magic, goddess theory, some of the sailor moon/sailor v re-release, and did I mention cook books? I've got cookbooks that focus on cuisine from a whole bunch of different countries: Japan, China, Wales, Ireland, England, and I think maybe one or two more.

I mean don't get me wrong. There are other things I'd love 0 Dragon Age 2 and Sims 3 anyone? But on the whole I'm pretty good right now. Or I will be once I get a new laptop
