Well this already is getting old

Normally, my posts are friends locked, but I still can't seem to use security options here, and disabling javascript (which I've been told is a temporary fix to this problem) so I'm reviewing options, including Dreamwidth. I don't want to lose my momentum, but I would like to control who sees what content. It's not that I'm posting anything I wouldn't be willing to anyone else in my life, but my experience with Bookface is that there are a lot of twats out there, and I'd like to reduce their access to what I say.

I really like this place, and I'd like to keep using it. If Dreamwidth is a better answer, I'll go there, and see about syncing it to here so the rest of you can keep following my wacky adventures.

Not much going on the last couple of days. Work is empty so I'm telecommuting the rest of this week, or most of it anyway.

Preparing for Dry January. Last night, I didn't drink anything and feel a noticeable difference in how I feel today as opposed to the night before when I did have a few drinks. This was the case 6 years ago when I did the reboot. So, clearly alcohol is something I need to manage carefully if I'm going to continue to use it.

I need to get new running shoes. Unfortunately, most of the places I've gone to locally for running shoes are closed. I'm particularly pissed that Pacers closed their doors in Silver Spring, but figured that having City Sports would be an adequate substitute. Then they closed their doors. I'm left with Footlocker which has two brands: Nike and Adidas. I wear neither of those. So, it looks like I'll have to look out of Silver Spring for my running shoes from now on.

I'm also contemplating a membership at Washington Sports Club. Currently, my options are

  • the NOAA gym which is not great, but it is convenient

  • LA Fitness which is almost as good moneywise as NOAA gym but isn't much better. The locker room smells pretty nasty. Not a great option

  • Washington Sports Club: Probably the best option in terms of facilities, but also the priciest. It helps that I have at least one friend who goes there, so that's a plus.


  • Ultimate it depends on how much I'm willing to spend and whether or not that money will be a good investment. One of the goals for the next year is to manage my finances more tightly. I already do a pretty good job, but I know I can do better.

    So, that's about it for now.

Just to say DW works well for me (I've been using it since 2009) and has been more lively and full of good people, communities and comments for me. It's also better maintained and the interface is a lot easier (for me) to use.

Oh and if you crosspost something access-locked/friends-locked, or to a custom filter that has the same name as your LJ filter, that works fine too. :)

Livejournal will always essentially be a sort of daily place to jot down my thoughts of the day. I have plans to make use of my named blog (which I'll link later) but the intention for that is to be a somewhat more "finished" product, and probably more of a professional blog. At least that's what I have intended.

Sure! Happy if I can help. I'm called hollymath there, and I'm about to spend all day in airports and planes, but after that I'll think about some recommendations of engaging writers/commenters :)
