Long time no see

Every time I visit an old journal, I end up spending a couple hours attempting to replace all the lost images. I like to post images, but photo hosters like to promise you the sun, wind and moon and then turn around and kick you in the teeth. This little blog is 11 years old, so it's had lots of missing pictures. :/
I am glad to see there are still a few people posting here. This has to be the sweetest and calmest little writing space ever. I will have to go around and see what's happening.
Once upon a time

I used to live here. I see I have neglected this little home, and it has made me sad. I just deleted all the photos that good old Imageshack dumped. I will have to replace them. I also intend to do better here.
For now, here is a bouquet of flowers to freshen up the room. ;)

How do I love to waste time? Let me count the ways...

Well, I was randomly logging into my 1001 email accounts and perusing all the shite I have stashed in the SAVING folders. I found a whole page of links I had imported from some browser in 2004, and it had a whole lot of my old forgotten sites on it--sites which I cannot get into, I might add, because I cannot remember the password, and I have lost track of the email that went with them. This is not a great tragedy because most of them are just nothing. I start things and then I leave. We all know this, as this blog proves.
But then I logged into an old Gmail, and I saw a bunch of end-of's entry notifications. I had my email changed on this thing because I didn't want the other one out in public, but now I never visit the Gmail because Gmail is a pain in the arse. So sad to say, I have been neglecting end-of. I am such a loser.
So THAT is how I waste time. I start way too many things with way too many emails, and I become so fragmented that I run out of energy. If you put all my stuff together from all over the net, I would have 100,000 entries. Does that not strike terror into your heart?
But here I am again. It's like that old Walter Matthau movie where he and Ellen Burstyn get together as lovers once a year every year.
Can these entries be made FO?
Anyway, I've given myself a headache with all this looking at old crap all day. I even found a 6 year old Livejournal.
So how is everyone?

Okay, something about me you should know. I collect things on the net and post them in my journals. I always give credit and link back when I can because that is why I do what I do--to SHARE and to expose others to talent and beauty and interest. I dunno how many times I have seen lovely things on the net, only to have them disappear the next minute. I SAVE them. I also love cats, so here is one now. This is a wonderful little site.
'This is Moses. He was born on April 24, 2011, Easter Sunday. He will be 11 weeks old this Sunday. We found him under our deck with his umbilical cord still attached. He was diagnosed with Flat Chest Kitten Syndrome and spent 4 days in the emergency room with oxygen due to his poor breathing. Unbelievably it appears the FCKS has reversed itself and Moses is an active normal kitty, who now enjoys torturing our 2 dogs Shea and Timmy. When we found Moses we agreed as a family we would nurse him back to health and then find a good home for him BUT that has changed. We have ALL fallen madly in love with him and he will be ours forever.'

...Only I'm a bajillion inches too tall, like Alice in Wonderland. Everything over here at Aeonity Blog is clean and TINY! Now dun get me wrong. I love Aeonity and always have even though I am seldom here. Butttt...the little input boxes are TINY! The comment forms are tiny, and if you edit your comment, it tells you to do so in a little box that is about 1/4 inch by 1/2 inch. LOL I mean SERIOUSLY? I canny even SEE the box, let alone edit the text that is supposed to be in it. haha. And the font--dun get me started on the font! It's worse than TINY. It's like I could type for three days straight, and it would never fill up the wee little entry box, as wee as it is. :-p
I will have to ask my Firefox to gigantify this site or I will definitely go blind and die of a migraine.
I happened over here again because I opened an old email and was told that my other blog here was no longer on probation. That was news to me. Did my lil blog go on some kind of rampage whilst I was away? I doubt it really because it is all about Yuna, and you know she wouldn't do that.
I'm being flippant here, but in reality, my life sucks major eggs at this time. I am out of work and money and almost everything else. *sigh* But that's a story for another day...

Why am I always so tired? I am supposed to be taking the world by storm, standing up for myself, making a million, wowing and zowing everyone--yet I canny get my arse in gear to go to the shops for anything.
Why do I come back over here to complain? Because NO ONE reads this over here. It's just me, wandering around in an empty room, and I can say anything I please and no one will care.
It's just like in real life. :(
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold

Mood: calm yet tired
Fiona McCann: who else?
Yes, I can hear a few of you saying, 'O rite, there's Fiona bitching about things falling apart again'. But seriously, I am not getting any younger! It seems like I have had this wee blog for YEARS and YEARS. I will have to look to see when I signed up--but it seems like a lifetime ago, and things are in some ways better (I am not living in that horridly disgusting place anymore) but in some ways on the slippery slope going down down down. :(
I would like to be able to come on here some year and say I have all my shiznit together and have a wonderful life with a great husband and 2 and one half wonderful children and a job I do in my spare time which makes me a million pounds a year!
Alas, none of that is true nor is ever likely to be. *sob*
So I will just say that at least, thank God, I still have the internet and can remember random lines from Yeats' poetry. w00t!
Two weeks from hell

The past two weeks were life and death--a culmination of neglect, abuse of power and stupidity. It was only by the grace of God that anything good came out of it. Hopefully, although the end result is still in doubt, the current process will continue to move in a positive direction.
I came back over here to check on some friends, and they seem to be gone. 'Tis a pity since this is such a nice blogging site.
I am so very hungry, and there is so little to eat in the house. Tomorrow I will be forced to go out.
And I am back!

Every once in awhile I will get an email at my old address informing me that there is a friend I have here who has made a post. I am always amazed they still remember to send me these notices. I have come back today with some new ideas, but first I wanted to see if this journal were still here, as it says admin will delete any not updated within a reasonable amount of time. I am glad they did not delete this one. I always think of all my sites around the INTERWEBS as my wee children, and I hate it if anything bad befalls them. They are not to blame that I am an errant parent. :/
I hope everyone is doing well.

For so long I have been gone, and so many things have happened that were not good. Now I am an orphan. Things are just different now.
Currently I am also having job issues and tough times due to economics, so I dunno what's going to happen. Worrying is hell.
I'm involved in other things that have taken a toll. It's like I am on a roller coaster. One minute I will be all right, and then the next minute something will occur to me that plummets my feelings. I dun much like it. I used to be a lot stronger than I am now. Now I just feel like giving up. :(

I knew I had another photo of a beautiful fish around my computer somewhere, and I finally found it. You can click on the thumbnail to view the larger version. I put it up at a gallery which went offline, unfortunately. I didn't take it, and I would give credit if I could remember who it belonged to.
this is for 'end-of'

wrote me a nice comment, and I went to her site and liked her poems. She speaks of the image of a fish, and it reminded me of this pic which I like a lot. I had a beautiful little red-capped Oranda about the same time I found this pic. The wee fish did not live long, but his memory survives in this image.
LIGHT A CANDLE

"5,199 candles from 86 countries are shining.
In many different traditions lighting candles is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. Why should cyberspace not be sacred?
You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this website. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention. From here on, you will be guided step by step."

Almost every other day in my email I will get a notice from Aeonity about someone I have subscribed to posting a new blog. I mainly signed up over here just to try out the software system and because I liked the templates. But I also like the way the webmaster lets you know when your 'friends' have made new posts or comments. That is what keeps people connected.
This is actually quite a nice little site as compared to many blogging venues I have used. It works quickly and simply. I was on one last night that sucked so bad I made a blog just to make a snarky comment about the service. It took me way to long to do it, but at least I registered my feelings. The webmaster wrote to say he didn't appreciate it. Then he proceeded to brag on his site. I KNOW, however, that my perceptions were spot on. The thing is also that this is a site which wants to charge a monthly fee after the trial period. Ha!
Just read >>Summer by Zatherus. You should too. It's about something we could all use more of.
Well, I'm dying of the heat here, so I will log off and catch a few Zzzz's.

There I was, just googling 'free blog host', more out of habit than need. Definitely no need for a new blog. I have so many now, it's kinda distracting. Then I saw this host here--the one I am going to have to concentrate on in order to be able to spell. I noticed the little pencil, and it reminded me of Livejournal. Then I saw all those flash games. Thought perhaps it was a misdirect, but no, it said blogging community. I clicked on lost_souls' blog and was hooked. Why? The template! It was very cool. Dark and transparent with the middle scrolling. I also noticed that Lost-Soul wanted to discuss something but couldn't. Uh oh--bad sign. Usually very bad sign. Don't ask I said to myself--don't make that comment. Get away. Go register yourself. So I did.
