Christmas Card Post!

I've been really terrible about posting online this year and so my year has stayed pretty much undocumented. I've decided to solve this problem by sending out Christmas cards and including what would be a typical Christmas letter if I had normal, grown-up accomplishments but will, instead, contain at least some of the following things I never got around to writing about online this year:

  • con reports for the three conventions I went to (ConFlikt, SpoCon, and OryCon)
  • trip reports for the two trips I took to see extended family in Idaho
  • a trip report for time several generations of my family went to Sunriver and my mom decided to take both the dog and the turtle along
  • injury reports for the two times I sprained my goddamn ankle (only one of which was on a family trip to Idaho)
  • a picture of Annabelle the Basset Hound in a different funny outfit than last year

If any of you internet-people would like a card, please fill out the following poll:

If you can't fill out the poll for some reason, leave a comment letting me know and I'll work out some other way to get your address. LiveJournal people without Dreamwidth accounts should be able to vote in the poll on Dreamwidth by logging into Dreamwidth with their LiveJournal OpenID.

I don't mind sending out cards to people I don't know well, but if you're not someone I follow on Dreamwidth, LiveJournal, or Twitter I'd appreciate a heads-up on how you found me and why I might know you so I can keep some sort of context going in my head. Reciprocal cards are not required, but are welcome.

Speaking of LiveJournal and Twitter, I've been kind of terrible at keeping up with them lately. Don't assume I've seen anything you've posted at either place in November or December. I might have, but it's not a sure thing. I've been keeping up with Dreamwidth, because it's less overwhelming and also Dreamwidth pages don't make my ancient computer slow down horribly the way LJ's new comment pages do. (I know, I know, custom comment pages like all the cool kids use, but I'm still using an S1 style over there and never got around to figuring out how to port it to S2 and blargh. I also know about their new friends page plans and am not happy because I hate change and my computer hates fancy, so it's a double blargh. I may go to keeping up with LJ through RSS feeds and a desktop RSS reader. I can't even think of a good way to make Twitter less overwhelming; it's just a really unpredictable timesuck because so much of it is links to articles that I may or may not care about and casual conversations between people I semi-know, so checking it can take anywhere from a half an hour to eight hours, and I avoid checking it because I don't have the eight hours right now.)

    When I was a little kid, Skipper's once gave out a bicycle reflector as their kid's meal toy. I did not happen to go to Skipper's that week, so I did…

    So, I haven't actually been caught up on my Typical Internet Obligations since....um...November, I think. Basically, I sprained my ankle again on…

  • Thank you, person or persons!

    So, today has been kind of a strange (but awesome!) day for me in Dreamwidth-land. There's a post in dw_biz about a possible future icon…
