Oak Leaves, LJ friends, and the chaos of potential

Last night, I spent about two hours proofing my last copies of Oak Leaves, issues 27 and 28. This was the second time through (I'd proofed both over a month ago), but with some last minute changes in content, I had to re-proof them again. Fortunately, it went a lot quicker this time than it did last time. Still, it was an interesting feeling that I got when I finished #28. I felt strangly . . . relaxed

With shizukagozen's obligations to Oak Leaves coming to an end, mine are as well. Actually, I don't really think that I ever had any obligation to OL. More to the point, I was always proofing and writing for shizukagozen. We had a good time at it, all told, but I never made a promise to work on Oak Leaves; I only told shizukagozen that I'd do whatever she needed.

Of course, I told Vedis that I work that way. Collapse )

Yesterday, I also went through and cleaned out my friends list of people who had already cleaned me out of thiers. I would hope that people who don't read my journal wouldn't keep me on because they're afraid that I'll be mad at them. . . Like most people, I don't care much for drama like that. Well, then again, most people on LJ seem to really like drama. Silly LJ users. :)

Later today, or perhaps on Monday, I will describe my meditations on sandwiches. They have been remarkable.

10 things, baby!

Ten things I've done, at the request of shizukagozen:

  1. Seen three UFO's: a "weather baloon", a "cigar", and a "moving-lights-in-weird-patterns". I still do not believe in UFO's.
  2. Been met at two airports in one year with boobies!
  3. Laughed at Cthulhu's tentacled face.
  4. Eaten the heart of a goose.
  5. Spent four days at Harvard and three days at the University of Richmond rubbing elbows with some of the biggest names in Celtic studies.
  6. Created and performed an entire liturgy based on the lyrics and songs of Jimmy Buffett. I managed to be totally serious while doing this.
  7. Had my two front teeth knocked out by the butt of a gun.
  8. Carried on an intelligent conversation with a cockroach
  9. Been unable to produce a tear due to emotion for over a decade and a half.
  10. Drove for 24 hours both ways to Key West, only to spend 6 hours on the Key. During this trip, I started drinking before noon, sat on the beach with a hot german journalist, ate a coconut directly off the palm tree for breakfast, went to Captain Tony's Saloon, and decided not to stay to watch sunset in Mallory Square.
  11. Edit: Oh, and I studied for two years under the greatest fencing master in the world. I forgot to put that on. :)
