Intertubes at work are still blocked - randomness

So. I played a lot of spider and looked up a lot of phone numbers. That was my day. Mindnumbing is a mild term.

In other news - we are now prepared for the Nine Days. This means we have sufficient underwear and socks to last us until Tisha B'Av, and we had meat for dinner in preparation for no laundry and no meat (except for Shabbat.)

I've been using 5" birch Brittanys for the second pair of socks (I can stop any time I want to. Really.) and I really liked the shorter length. But one snapped. I think I hold them too tightly, and the bamboo is more flexible - so I'm back to the 7" bamboo ones. Ah, well. I now have cable needles. Or something. Or I'll learn to hold them more lightly and buy another set so I have extras. One or the other.

How's everyone else been? Hugs flist. I've missed you *all day*.

And for those who care - http://mamadeb.vox.com/, although it's mostly just staking a claim.


Vox is SixApart's newest service (SA also owns Moveable Type and TypePad, as well as LiveJournal.) They seem to have decided that LiveJournal should be repositioned as another "MySpace" - that, in fact, the majority of its subscribers are high school and college age, and have set up Vox for adult blogging.

No one I know has plans to give up their livejournal or even to blog much on Vox, but should an exodus happen, we want to have our usernames. So we're staking claims.

and you need to be invited, like Gmail?

Yes - for the moment, because it's in preview.

Do you want one?

sure, thanks!

Seems they lied to me.

I don't have any invites yet. You'll be the first when I do get them.

May I get one when you have a spare? (I, too, am just staking a claim, so if you have someone who actually wants to use the service, give that person priority.)
