It's a safe space. And a small but engaged audience.

I've been reading LJ all along but not posting, as you can probably tell.

Toying with the idea of returning more of my thoughts to here, especially those that aren't going on Tumblr or Twitter or anywhere these days. And I used Ello for about 60 seconds. I wished more for it.

But LJ is always here! And I'm having a rough "holiday" season. Pondering what it would take to live within my current networks and habits without celebrating Christmas or anything else I don't want to. I have a few ideas.

So you didn't like Ello? Being a super-anti-facebook, person, I considered checking it out, but just not sure I care all that much. LOL.

Why a rough holiday season? Hope everything is OK. Was thinking about you the other night and our dinner as i walked to a Christmas party that was across from my old place. And about that waiter who was flirting up a storm with you. ha!

Ello is simple, but maybe too simple. I'll have to log in again and give it a chance.

I won't have much time to work on shopping, card sending, etc. until 12/19 and I might be traveling as soon as 12/21 so it feels too compressed to actually finish it all. Which leads me to wonder whether I should bother with the obligation in the first place!

Avoiding Christmas is fucking hard! I am avoiding all of my "holiday" office parties this year. But obligations to family and friends run stronger.

One year I told all my friends I was not going to celebrate Christmas, and not to give me any presents, because I would not be reciprocating. Most of them gave me presents anyway, which made me feel like a jerk.

I've noticed already. :)

I did attend the work holiday parties, but have been declining invites to others. Just not feeling it.

Sigh, indeed. I'll try to be present on LJ but no promises!
