Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.

06:12 am - The Reaper loves me
Just found out that an old friend has passed away. Just a few days before, I'd learned another old friend had died. And in a little over a week I'll be attending the memorial service of yet another old friend who is gone.

So tired of this.

08:19 pm - In shock right now
I've just learned that a friend of a quarter-century has passed away. I have many memories of her and am sad there will be no more new ones.

02:19 pm - Taking a snowday
Currently snowed in. 10.5" of snow from the storm, and my car is encased in frozen snow, slush and ice from the plows. Not going anywhere, so I'm enjoying kittycat snorgles.

Current temp is 16 degrees F with windchill of 2 degrees F, so even more reason to stay in.

It's after midnight and it's 90 degrees F, with a heat index of 97.

This weather sucks the life out of me.

02:32 pm - Back from the not-quite-dead
I haven't used my account much lately. I haven't really felt like writing anything after the constant stream of deaths among my friends and family that lasted for far too long -- 14 within about two years -- plus the disaster that was my personal life circumstances. Instead I retreated to Facebook where I could be light and fluffy and completely insubstantial.

Maybe it's time to come back to LJ and be more substantial.

If you enjoy my posts, thank hrafnkell for reminding me of how much I used to enjoy writing here.

11:42 pm - A baker's dozen deaths
Just got home from a wake for someone I've known for about twenty years. This makes 13 people gone from my life in just over two years, three of whom were close relatives.

So tired of this.

03:29 pm - WTF happened to my LiveJournal Scrapbook?!?
Just discovered LJ overhauled Scrapbook and made it pretty much unusable for me. I had it beautifully organized, with a nice background image that went well with the rest of this journal's theme and color scheme. Now it's fugly and when I click on my albums in Scrapbook, I no longer see the pictures I put there. When I look at the posts, the photos still seem to be there, though. I'm not sure how to access them through Scrapbook, in case I want to edit something.

Given this development, I'm no longer sure I'll be doing photoposts, since I will have difficulty in setting up new galleries in Scrapbook. Feeling very, very pissed off right now, since I enjoyed doing photoposts.

10:06 am - Faerie protection spell needed immediately!
I just found out that on Thursday night, someone tried to kill my dear friend Richard Treitner. Luckily the knife broke. Two years ago, someone set fire to his house while he was away visiting family.

I'm so glad he has survived these assaults, but I am very worried about him. He may not be so lucky a third time.

I love my faerie friend very much and want him to stay safe. The world would be so much darker without his light and laughter in it and I couldn't bear to see anything bad happen to him.

08:33 pm - Now on Inworldz
I've been involved with Second Life for almost five years now, but as time passes, it changes more and more from the place I fell in love with, in ways that are increasingly bad. I'm also no longer sure if it will remain an economically viable company, since its financial footing seems more and more shaky as more and more users flee.

And now I'm one of those users, as of today. For a variety of reasons, while I will maintain a presence in Second Life (for now), I've decided to open an account on rival service Inworldz. It simply seems prudent to no longer have all of my virtual eggs in one virtual world's basket.

I expect to set up shop in Inworldz after I become better acquainted with the place. It will take time to rebuild my product line there, but hopefully the company that runs Inworldz will be more merchant-friendly than Linden Lab has been.

12:18 am - Another friend is no more

Moogy singing

The Reaper has shown me his love once more. My friend Moogy Klingman of the band Utopia has passed away. I met many of my famous friends through him -- he enjoyed putting people together.

So now the count of people gone from my life in just over a year is 10 -- three close relatives and seven friends. I'm so very, very tired of going to funerals and memorial services.

I'll be sitting shiva with the family for the next few days.
