Always one degree away from the drama.

And that's probably where I prefer to be.

Several folks on my list have been posting about how they've got friends leaving over the ownership change ... but I have not seen any of my friends directly saying so. I'm one level away from the LJ drama all the time, it seems, and that is perfectly fine with me. Myself, I literally just renewed my paid account over the weekend, and that appears to mean I get a bonus six months? Sort of feels like when our electric company completed a super unpopular merger last year and all residential customers "coincidentally" got a heavily discounted bill the next month. But I took that, and I'm taking this!

Not too much else going on. The championship game last night was not the best basketball I'd seen this year or even this week, but was entertaining while we ate tacos. To get said tacos, I had to stock up on some groceries, and figured I should improve my store of breakfast/lunch foods at the office while I was at it. So I was off to Harris Teeter, where even when not quite filling the smaller shopping cart, I managed to spend $58! They were damn good tacos, and I have had as quality desk meals as is possible, so I suppose it was worth the bill.

Work has been steady but productive, and my manager is out of the country on vacation so there are very few interruptions. I have scarcely pushed more deliverables out the door than the week between last Wednesday and today. Also I took this Friday* off, so it is helpful that I keep up the productivity. On another note, while I was waiting for Favorite Coworker to finish proofing a document to send to me earlier, I was weighing whether to sign up for a 10K that Bobby had posted about on Facebook. The enticement of post-race brunch in his post was crucial, because I decided to do it and registered! Now I need to replace my running shoes well before May 21st. Oh, and train some more. :)

Sixth cold shower at the gym tonight. It's getting less fun every time, but the staff are so genuinely apologetic I have to give them a hand. Maybe I'll bring a bucket of home-heated with me tomorrow.

*And that should be the topic of my next entry, as I partially wrote it in my head earlier tonight.

hahaha, i largely stay out of the lj dramz as well. did i set up an back-up account? yes, but that's more for the archival purpose, for which i have to say, i've been really shit about for oh... sixteen years.

Makes sense. I don't have a backup account per se, but I have all my archives and could set myself up on Tumblr if need be.
