heard you missed me

So, purely out of curiosity, was anyone legitimately fooled by that?

Continuing on that curiosity cusp (and, really, for no other reason; this post is not an "I'm back!" or "I'm front!" or anything other than a momentary observation of a negative tenth anniversary of a regular writing schedule that meant a lot to me back in the day, along with all the parenthetical asides that that entailed)...is anybody still around on here?

I'm essentially not still around on here--I log in every now and then, which makes it a delightful coincidence that I spotted your post at all. HOW THE HELL ARE YOU MAN WHAT'S UP.

How dafuq did I miss this little April Fools' joke?

Not that you're checking this until 2024, but yes, there are several of us still around on here...

(laughter)

I'm so glad there are (checkers of LJ generally, you specifically). For the record, I saw the reply for this come up a few months ago, but am only following the right chain of websites to reply to this (and am drunk enough--that's how you handle New Year's Eve when you're older; by drinking to excess on New Year's DAY if it happens to fall on a weekend--to respond to it) right now.

That chain of websites got me thinking: even ten years ago, LiveJournal was on its way out of being a "thing". You've been writing nonstop during the LJ era, MySpace era, Facebook era, and onward. What, if anything, do you think we've "lost" as a result of abandoning the LJ model of web communication? How dafuq has it affected your writing, if in any way (and if I'm using that in a grammatically correct fashion)? And how is it that I can still be this persnickety about writing mechanics at three in the morning, several glasses of something or other in, and several years into an abandoned writing avocation-or-possible-career-in-some-ridiculous-parallel-universe?

A much-belated congratulations on adding to the sun_sets_bravely (LJ username underscore accuracy approximate) family later this year, by the way. It's been...FAR too long since we talked in person, and this is a major enough event that I feel really embarrassed in not checking in with you about all the thoughts and emotions and ideas associated with it, let alone those of your husband. Bad gmoneyjonesiii! Bad!

Merry New Year, though.
