Oooh, I got the toe knuckles on my left foot to crack, and it didn't totally fucking hurt! It only hurt a mild amount.

So, a while ago I complained about lj not working well with posting comments and replies.

I actually posted a support issue, and the response I got was that there's a known issue with the site and the browser extension HTTPS Everywhere.

So, I guess that's that. I hope they fix the problem and make themselves compatible with HTTPS. I'm of the opinion that there's almost no good reason to host an unencrypted http site.

For that matter, it's unfortunate that strong encryption wasn't baked in to tcp/ip at a much lower level, much earlier in the history of the internet.

I have so much to do it's not even funny. I feel like I'm never going to get caught up. Sigh. I need not just a vacation, but a do-over on life.

So, ever since I was a little kid, as long as I can remember, I've had this crazy nerve in my right ear, that occasionally goes off and gives me excrutiating, sharp pain that comes on suddenly and then lasts for 30 seconds to a minute. It's usually bad enough that I can't pretend to ignore it, although I can manage to do things while bearing it. It's just really annoying. It comes and goes, and is infrequent enough that I've never been able to pinpoint it or get it to happen in front of a doctor, and in recent years it hasn't bothered me. But today and yesterday, it's come on about 10 times or more, and it's seriously annoying.

Can't reply to comments to my posts. It used to appear to silently fail, but when you reloaded the page the comment would be there. Now, it gives some kind of unhandled error. I hope this gets fixed. It feels like we're on an unmanned ship sometimes here.

Managed to mow the back yard, but it took about all my ankle and foot could (literally) stand. Icing and resting it now, and hope to stay off my feet the rest of the day. I took a big dose of ibuprofen before I started, and I think it made it possible for me to do the lawn at all. I wish I didn't feel like I couldn't ask for people to do stuff like that to help me out, because it would have been a lot better if I could have gotten some neighborhood kid to do it for me for like $20. Of course, if I did that, with my luck the kid would hurt himself or fuck up the mower, and that's the last thing I need right now.

Mood has been kinda bad today. I feel like I'm going stir-crazy. I feel like I'm being ignored. People who I've sent messages to have ignored them. I don't understand what it is. I need to spend time with people, and interact with them. I feel like my faculties aren't as sharp because I don't interact with people. When I do, I feel like I'm out of step and off kilter. I can tell it contributes to my making a bad first impression on people I'm just meeting. It's not good. Just being around people isn't good enough, either. I need to bring myself, to be present, to be engaged, to communicate. Much of the time when I'm around people I feel withdrawn and self absorbed and disengaged and distant. I don't know what to do about it. It feels like I can't help it, my attempts to control it only back fire and make it worse.

Looks like LJ made a major update to the site today.

Looks like they've changed the navigation, making it less my-journal-centric, and more lj services and communities centric.

I mostly navigate by typing urls so it doesn't affect me that much, but it's a bit disconcerting. I really hope that this is more a re-organization of the interface and that they aren't dropping features. Updating them to be more modern, I can live with.

I don't know that LJ can do much to bring back the traffic and users that they have lost to Facebook, but as long as they don't go belly up and disappear, I guess that's good. I hope that they know what they're doing, and don't fuck it up.

Oh, and the house has ants. I need to get some traps, but I can't easily get around and carry stuff and drive. If anyone reading this wants to help me out, I can reimburse you for ant traps. I'll pay extra if you're willing to vacuum a few floors.

OK I got nowhere else to talk about this, since people don't like posting possible spoilers on fb, since there's no cut tag.

GoT speculation and spoilersCollapse )
