02 | zachary and saying "hi mom", "bye mom" in the voice we think hoggle would use and vice versa
03 | getting new testimonials or comments of any kind (lj, myspace, flickr, yelp, facebook, etsy)
04 | going on adventures with friends that start with one errand but turn into lots of fun with unplanned stops
05 | miniature desserts - yesterday i had "the world's smallest banana split" from frango cafe inside macy's/marshall fields. so perfect.
06 | inside jokes like "ruh-rye-rah", "c-p island", "gubbins", "vomit sex" (though dan made this all too real emailing a picture recently)
07 | pouring cream into zachary's coffee and swirling it around even though i don't drink coffee
08 | days when it's quiet up front and no one is playing music (i know, me saying no music, right? it's just seriously overwhelming some days with all the noise - today is a nice quiet day here)
09 | finding perfect presents
10 | watching an entire television series over a short period of time (so many watched lately: black books, twin peaks, my so-called life, quarterlife, and i started shameless this weekend)
everyone, please read about the lj strike and don't post friday, march 21st. lj is taking away freedoms and it's not cool. read more behind this
For background on this strike and why it is being held, please read the following posts:
To find out exactly when the strike begins and ends, depending on where you are located, please see this:
What's this about?
* It's about free and ad-free LiveJournal accounts being abolished for new members, ignoring the advice from the newly-formed Advisory Board.
* It's about LJ staff trying to sneak this decision in under the radar, and when people found out, telling the users it was done 'to make the signup process less confusing'.
* It's about LJ staff failing to apologize for trying to hide the facts from view and for lying about the actual reasons for their actions.
* And finally, it's about the latest decision to hide certain user interests from the list of Most Popular Interests, some of them being fanfiction, bisexuality, sex and depression. This decision was not announced or explained in any way. Users found out for themselves.

The following is from an interview with the new owner of LJ...
In this situation, where they attempt to blackmail and to intimidate us, threatening to destroy our business, there is a business-reason not to reward this behavior. This is not the simple reaction of being more resistant the more pressure is applied. The fact is that through history no successful enterprise runs by being subjugated by unfriendly forces. No change, even the most correct one, will not experience some resistance.
It would probably be best to reconsider the recent changes. But from our point of view it is now necessary to wait until after the boycott has faded. Let it pass and have the voices of protest fade. Then we can consider changing this policy.
