May. 23rd, 2019 @ 04:40 pm Welcome

Welcome to my journal! Please feel free to post comments or add me to your friends list!

I have pretty much stopped adding people to my Friends List since I got down to Antarctica. I simply don't have the time to keep up with existing people on my FL. But that doesn't mean you can't add me. Please go right ahead!

I will be working at McMurdo Station, on Ross Island in Antarctica from 9/08-10/09 and 1/10-9/10.

Hey -- From your icon picture you look like Joey from friends, but from your journal you have a brain! Cool.

Things I've seen here that I like already -- your John Steinbeck interest...amtrak... I'm going to start using it soon for literary pursuits and research: I'll check out your website.

And book collecting - ah, the stories I could tell, and in fact will, maybe in response to your own posts.

I'll add you! Check me out, okay?

welcome! sure i'll add ya back. I would suggest getting on Amtrak as soon as possible as there is a serious possibility that many of its long distance routes will be cancelled. Bush has been pushing to cut all funding for Amtrak and it looks like the House is gonna cut HALF of their funding.

For some reason I cna't reply at ALL to comments so... explaning what loli is.

Loli is a shortened form of lolita. So people don't think I'm a perv. it has Nothing to do with the nove but is a gothic fashion subculture thingy in japan. My icons are pictures of loli's from ads and such for the various clothing companies.

Examples of dresses. Or my faves. Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com
it can also be very gothic Image hosted by Photobucket.com
very cute, almost or totaly little girl like. But worn by not so little girls. Though some older loli's dress their children up. It's insanely adorable.

but yeah. That's lolita. or gothic lolita... or gothic AND lolita... whatever...

I really am loving these spiders. After some research today I figured out that they are most likely "garden spiders" and I think they are females.

I noticed you had friended me, so I went through your journal to check you out... and wow. I was just amazed at some of the things that you say. Your imagery about the ball of twine, and how people's faces were reflected onto it... I was left breathless.

I just was wondering how on earth you found my journal and decided to friend it.

hi, thanks for the comment. Honestly, I don't remember how I came across your LJ. I looked at your interest page and we have no friends/communities in comments. But then I noticed that in one of your public postings you thank palefire, who is on my friends list. I am going to assume that maybe you posted a comment on her journal one day or she mentioned you.

Hello! I noticed, like a bunch of people able, that you'd added me. Because I am a great dectective (but not really) I noticed that we're both members of literaryquotes, so I assume that's how I was discovered. Anyway, I've added you back, and I very much enjoy your entries so far!

I like the way it works as well, too bad it isn't as easy in real life!

ahh yes, neighbors though removed. I currently reside in New Hyde Park, right on the queens/nassau border.

Ok just letting you know- I'm officially obsessed with 'Has Been.' It's rocking my world. My favorite tracks are the father-daughter one and the 'together' one. The drowning one makes me sad because I know it's true- it's really strangely honest and vulnerable and raw. Thanks for providing me with my new favorite album!!!!

Joy! I am glad you are enjoying it so much! I am a big fan of the fatehr-daughter song as well. I particularly love the part when he brings up reading a book -- he is so enthusiastic and at the same time so desperate -- its wonderful!

Hi there, just noticed you added me, I'm assuming it's because of something I said on ljgenie or metaquotes though I can't think of anything of interest I've said in either place recently.
