My journal turns twelve today. TWELVE. And it still feels like it's only been a few years, like Lotrips (in all its crazy, wanky, brilliant glory) only slowed down last year or so. But even that was ten years ago.

It's been twelve lovely years, and I've met (most online but some RL as well) so many fantastic people and now I almost feel a little choked up. Wistful, certainly.

Twelve years. WTF.

I've been very quiet of late because RL isn't treating me that well. It's nothing major, it's just the accumulated pressure of a lot of persistent stress and poor sleeping habits. Most of the time, my mood is more or less 'meh', and I feel terrible about how it makes me withdraw from people and from being social (RL and online - I absolutely suck at commenting or replying to comments). From updating. From posting fics (challenge fics from last year, gah). I've meant to write about so many movies and shows I've seen that I've liked (Thor, The Borgias, BBC Sherlock, War Horse...) but somehow I can't seem to gather my thoughts when I sit down to update. Ditto for looking into the fandoms for the ones mentioned above. It feels a little like they're too large, too active and that I'll just get something terribly wrong if I venture in. Yes, it's entirely possible to get performance anxiety about something like that. I'm worryingly good at it.

And now, on a much cheerier note: many, many terribly belated thanks to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] caras_galadhon, [livejournal.com profile] savageseraph and [livejournal.com profile] eve_n_furter for the glass hearts. ♥ (And special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] caras_galadhon for the userhead. *squishes*) They really cheered me up.

Finally, the mandatory weather note (I am a Finn, after all, and we're obsessed with the weather): the light has been returning at which seems like a much faster pace than usual. We're already up to almost ten hours of daylight. The shortest day was a little under five hours, and that was only two months ago. It's making my mood a little lighter, because the persistent darkness during the deepest winter has begun to get to me in later years. I don't know why. Not even the snow (which we still have lots of) seems to add enough light then.
Today's fic pimpage: people, go read this fantastic LotR RPS historical AU that [livejournal.com profile] caras_galadhon wrote for me. I tossed around some cracky ideas in chat, and she spun fantastic tales from them. *loves*
The Yuletide Fandom Nominations are open. (TBH, I don't know if I'll nominate any. The ones I might think of will either a) get nominated by umpty other people or b) be too intimidating* for me to write in. Or c) both.)

Also, in shiny news: thank you so much for the Yorkie v-gifts, [livejournal.com profile] caras_galadhon and [livejournal.com profile] savageseraph! ♥!

*Then again, I tend to end up writing in fandoms I've claimed I'm scared of writing in, so... And one of the Laws of Yuletide seems to be "Yea, verily shalt thou end up with the fandom you added to your signup for the hell of it".

... I'm just very silent.

I had planned to post a kink_bingo fic before the end of the month, but I doubt that'll happen, because I'm apparently trying to figure out how to hit as many squares as possible without getting a line. (I should add that when I say "hit" I mean it in the broadest sense: none of my ficlets are past the note stage, and some only have a possible pairing. I told you I write like a glacier.)

Anyway, the main point of this post wasn't to whine about my lack of progress, but to offer belated thanks for the birthday wishes (early, timely and belated alike!) and lemurs. Thank you!

And finally, a random observation: not content with getting the first six mosquito (one of them inevitably in a place that you can't scratch in polite company - the inner thigh) bites of the season during Midsummer, I also got sun rash around my left elbow joint. Ack.

Dear person or persons unknown* who replied to my thread on the Fictional Love meme: I love you lots, in many sticky ways. Reading the comments made me giggle like a loon and make embarrassing little squealing noises.

♥ ♥ ♥

That's all for now. *g*

*Though I have my suspicions about at least one of them. :)

Short and sweet: thank you so much for the lovely Valentine v-gifts, [livejournal.com profile] caras_galadhon and [livejournal.com profile] savageseraph! *tacklehugs*

(I was offline for most of Sunday, so my thanks are a bit belated. But still heartfelt. *g*)
