My LJ, like my life, has just had a severe pruning. If you're reading this, you haven't been removed, no need to comment (unless you want to be removed, of course (:).

If you've been snipped, honestly, it's nothing personal, we've likely grown apart in interests and whathaveyou, maybe you've dropped away from LJ too? Maybe you never friended me back (I do think LJ should be a dialogue and not just me jabbering away to myself like a loon). Whatever the case, if I've 'unfriended' you (what a horrible way that is to put it) and you wanted to stay, please, by all means comment or pm me, I'll be more than happy to add you back.

I have been a tad quiet of late, my laptop's power failed a couple of weeks ago, I was without t'internet for ten days and in that time, I rediscovered Real Life and all its joys and I have to say, far from being the trial I feared, it was actually rather lovely. :) Now I'm back I'm finding myself much less inclined to be constantly online.

My fannish interests are very much on the wane, I'm reading very little fic these days and bar one, still-outstanding story, I don't anticipate writing any more of my own. I doubt if I'll be commenting as much as before, either and - I'm telling y'all this in case you feel I'm too dreary company these days and feel you want to remove me. I do totally understand if that's so, so please feel free and absolutely no offence taken.

So, if in the light of all the above, you're still here and want to be, or you've been pruned and happy to be so, there's no need to comment. If, on the other hand, I've done something you're not happy about, just let me know and I'll rectify the situation.

In the meantime, permission to blow kisses? I may have gone a bit quiet but I do still love you all, you know.

Have fun with RL, but remember that fandom is still here if/when you want to rejoin it. :-)

Well that's nice to know ♥

I just got back from a mass-unsub of mailing lists, too, and have to say I feel a tremendous lightness of being right now. :)

I know what you mean about this real life thing. When I go away with the Sealed Knot I don't miss the telly or the laptop - I have a real live book with me and I love to sit and read when I'm not socialising. It's so peaceful and restful! It's addictive.

It is, isn't it? While I was offline, I read seven books, did a 5 - 7 mile walk a day and got so much work done. I'm trying to resist the slide back to old habits, turning the lappy off when not actively using it. I've pruned because I want online time to be quality time.

I'm glad you're enjoying life with the SL and - OMG! RAIN!!! Lotsandlotsandlots of thunder and heavy, heavy RAIN. Satellite signal is down, I am praying for my courgettes. :)

We gots the RAIN here too! The black clouds are rolling by and the thunder and lightning is just starting to kick in with a vengeance. It's taken the satellite off here and now it's chucking it again!
I wish your courgettes well in this downpour! I hope you gave them an umbrella...
ha! Last time we went away, the garden parasol blew down and took out 2 cucumbers and a lovely orange glass water bud. Umbrellas are evil.

::snogs you rotten::

We all change babe, so don't worry - I'm sure everybody knows where you're coming from... of course, that said, try to prune me and I'll be forced to stalk you, pith helmet, wellies, butterfly net and all. You won't even know it's me because of the false beard and the fishnet stockings... bwahahaha!

I would sooner fill-in my genitals with quick-drying concrete than prune you, my love.

In other news: Rain!!! and thunder! and RAIN!!! omg, it's the end of the world!!!

Oh, thunder? WANTS! But yes, we have proper rain too, as in sloshing down and wet rather than the token gnat's wee that's the most we've had in weeks... naturally muggins had to go out in it twice tonight, but it was more "Singin' In The Rain" than "bugger, I'm soaked!"

I stayed!!! It always makes me feel very happy when I don't get cut from LJ f-lists. I'm crap at commenting but I do read :-)

Permission to blow kisses back? :-) I like to see what's what with you, even if it's not fandom related.

I like hearing what's going on with you and seeing the photos of your neighborhood and garden.

I'd do all right without the internet if I didn't need it so much for jobhunting right now. Or at least I could manage with reduced access

*blows kisses back*

I'm sorry you're feeling blah about fandom but happy that RL is giving you enough distraction!

Kisses back to you! I'm feeling much like you...not fannish about anything right now. I understand the urge to simplfy and be quiet for a while.

*blows you kisses* Glad to hear that you've been doing fun stuff!

Permission granted! Have some in return!
RL is surely a wondrous thing, too. I rediscovered it on my trip to your wonderful country; only logging on long enough to load up my photos and post a couple to LJ every day. I was worried that after a trip that length I wouldn't remember what each photo was if I didn't load and label each day.
But *sigh* back to reality, and it's so easy to slip back into old habits. I've made a point of going out the last two weekends, just to get away from the PC.
So do I, but I see very few comment on my posts, happily the stats are helping to know people see them. I enjoy to read your posts even I often feel unable to reply anything fun or original to them.
