C'mon, we've all been there...

(no subject)

Never mind, now it's working. Huh.


For some reason, whenever I try to read my friends' page, I get a message saying something like "too many redirects". I cleared my cookies, but that didn't help. Does anyone know if there is a problem with LJ??

I met Philia when she came to Philadelphia to visit her family, before her cancer came back. We met at a bookstore and I knew her right away. She gave me a million suggestions for reading, and we talked, Philia, Brian (my brother), and I, non-stop for a few hours. I walked out of that bookstore with an armful of books and a new friend.

A while later I had the opportunity to go to meet mwt at a signing in Boston near Philia's home. Filled with excitement, I drove up to meet her again, and Guin, and whatever other fans of mwt showed up. Again, Philia and I connected, and Guin too, as well. The only problem is, I am very very shy, although no one really sees that much. Maybe shy is not the word. Perhaps reserved is the word. I am not a huge hugger, although lately I have wanted to hug Philia with all my heart. But my point is, I didn't really keep up with Philia the way, say, Guin or Em have, or even others of you who have not even met her in person. I just sometimes feel I am, I dunno, maybe intrusive? Or something? Maybe I like other people more than they like me? I don't know. All I know is it's too late now, and I am filled with regret and deep sadness. She was such a brilliant person, and so special. My heart breaks for Dr C and Wildcat.

...And, again.

Okay, with Brian's (Rrelf's) help with Aol and zip files and crap and with dqbunny's help with LJ and stuff, I think I fixed the puppy post so the pictures come up. I do not know for sure, because the only way I can tell for sure is for Brian to read my post on his computer and check, and he is busy. So, Idk. Good luck, internet friends, and again, THANK YOU SO MUCH, DQBUNNY AND RRELF!

Puppy post revisited

Okay, so dqbunny worked very hard to fix the photo problem, and figured out the issue. I believe I can work on it more tomorrow, but for now, she has provided links for y'all to click on to see the pictures. I hope tomorrow I will be able to download the pics, then upload them, so then you will be able to see them without clicking. Maybe. And thanks again dqbunny. You guys, she did this all remotely. With me going, what? Um, huh? Say what, now? So, yeah, thanks!

My First Time (not what you think, it's okay)

 Well, I did it. I ran my first 5k today. It was blessedly not 310 degrees this morning, but only about 65 or so by the time we started. I managed to run the entire time, which surprised me, because in my workouts I just haven't been able to do it. I crap out after a mile or 1/4 mile even. I did come in 2nd to last, overall. Kind of embarrassing. Oh well.  But really. The family that passed me early on with the stroller should have given me a clue, I guess. I think they stopped for a diaper change, also. I mean, I didn't stop for a diaper change, but I think they did. No, I made that up, but they could have, for all I know. They beat me by a lot. Or maybe alot. Maybe that was my issue; I didn't have an alot.

Anyway, a really nice lady talked to me at the end. Turns out she came in 3rd in my age group, about 20 minutes before me. She and her husband were very nice to me.  So there's that. So, so, so.

Will I do it again? I am having issues with my sanity, so there's a definite possibility that I will. How sad is that?

Happy Birthday!

It's Happy Birthday to Agh Day! Yay!

I'm so proud that I actually remembered to post on the actual day instead of forgetting and just commenting later on someone else's post or forgetting completely. Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo:
