Just your average Friday ;-)

There was a fair amount of excitement chez moi today. Woke up this morning to find a cheery notification from LiveJournal telling me someone had defriended me. Went out to Facebook to move in the four Wordscraper games I had going with Tavi, and saw that the same person had dropped me as a friend there. Was a little surprised by both actions, but hey, stuff happens as Dick Cheney would say, and there are no hard feelings.

I'd arranged to work from home today, as a number of May Day immigration marches were planned for downtown, which we'd been warned would snarl up traffic and play havoc with bus routes all day. Sadly, I succumbed to temptation and let work slide in favour of finishing up those four Wordscraper games (lost all of them, unfortunately). The work still has to be done, so that will keep me busy tonight and tomorrow night.

The LJ defriending was rescinded late in the afternoon (I'm still persona non grata on Facebook), leaving me feeling a bit like a yo-yo. Then, to top things off, there was a strong enough earthquake somewhere that I felt/heard it here at my desk. Will have to watch the news later tonight to find out the precise location.

And everyone and his brother seems to be talking about Dreamwidth today. I'm staying put right where I am on LJ and just hoping that people going over there will cross-post.

*goes off to start doing neglected work*

the whole etiquette behind friending, on LJ or on facebook, is such a nightmare... For instance, I know that several people from work have facebooks, but I didn't friend them because I don't want them to know about stuff that are too personal (then again, if you've noticed how often I have updated my facebook account since I opened it...)

As for Dreamwidth, I'm not tempted - I don't have enough time to keep track of everything, and my friends are on LJ, so...

Glad to know I'm not the only one saying I HAVE NO TIME FOR ANOTHER BLOGGING SITE!

As for Facebook, I'm only using it to play online scrabble (either Lexulous or Wordscraper). If you ever feel like a game (it wouldn't have to be played in one sitting), let me know. :-)

I need to find a Scrabble icon....

Earthquake
Hi, me, Celia, once again unable to get the system to remember my password correctly for me.

If you twittered you would know it was a 4.6 earthquake, epicenter 6 miles south of Westlake Village. ABC News first said southwest, then southeast, so there's a little confusion there. I felt it here at home too but probably not as strongly as you did.

I prefer the systems that don't tell me when someone has defriended me. Also I add and drop people with such abandon on Twitter that I take it less seriously. But then on Twitter it is less serious, I think.

Pleased to report that all my Hatchlings are happy. I had to toss a dozen overboard to get it down to a manageable number!

Re: Earthquake
I specifically set up the LJ account so I'd be notified both when I'm friended and defriended. Didn't want to feel a fool again the way I did once before. Will tell you about it the next time I see you.

Would you ever be interested in playing Lexulous or Wordscraper with me on Facebook?

I've noticed how everyone is going nuts over Dreamwidth. Ot Twitter. I'm staying right here at LJ; thank God you are too!

Like I told babycakesin, it's all I can do to keep up with LJ. I hope the people opening DW accounts will cross-post, but if not, that's my bad luck, I guess.

Btw, would you ever care for an online Scrabble game (either Lexulous or Wordscraper) through Facebook? If so, let me know, and I'll invite you to a game sometime. :-)

A lot of people cross post, I've noticed. I don't want to lose out on journals I've been following for years, but I don't want another journal, either.

Invite away. I've never played any of those games, but I can always give it a try.
