The hair mutual admiration society
Hee. I realize it's a little narcisistic to tell you how gorgeous your hair is when, well, it's like a slightly curlier version of mine. We both have lovely fantastic hair.
It was great to meet you too!

*pets both our hair* :)
Oh, the Jack/Stephen recaps I was blathering about, they're here
is updating each day, usually at lunch, in her own journal. Go forth and enjoy such nuggets as:
"Our Boys have pulled themselves out of funk, and Stephen has given up on his underpants in favor of footed longjohn hoodies that embarrass Jack. Stephen also offered to have a matching footed longjohn hoodie made for Jack. Sort of an eccentric, 19th century version of matching jogging suits."
If I were going to get a Leahy cd what's a good one to start with?

Heeheehee. Thanks for the link.
I think Lakefield is the best, but the latest In All Things is quite good as well. I still like their first, but not quite as much. Leahy is a mix of really great amped up traditional/instrumental and more pop-ish stuff.
Yay for being back at the gym!
And too personal... I actually don't talk about my problems too much. I mean, I can tell all and sundry that I'm on weight watchers, that I'm on anti-depressants, and yet saying why I'm actually, really, honestly on them? No go.
Also don't like giving my reasons for the things I do, you know? If I make a decision, I like the decision to be done. I don't want to analyze why. Sometimes things just have to be and I have to keep it to myself.
Yeah. Back to rambling. How're you?
I completely understand what you mean about keeping your reasons to yourself. Sometimes you just need to say "Decision made." draw a line under it, and move on.
I'm ok. I'm tired. I'm feeling sorry for myself about a couple of things... but my boss is leaving for SE Asia for two weeks starting tomorrow morning so I'm going to enjoy living in the land of late lunches and long trips to the gym. I am a terrible employee.
Not a terrible employee, I think. I think we are expected, as American workers, to follow the clock too much. My thought is that if the work is done and I'm where I need to be to take care of work related things...it's all good. Can't be a slave to the clock--too much stress.
The Countess has spoke. *draws a line under decision and dubs you a good employee*
poor birdy. *pets*
will get back to you on the personal stuff.. must think.
Yeah.. it was a starling.. Matt was all brave and manly and used his new work gloves to rid the room of the birdy.
Plus, dude, you should see these bruises. I'm going to take a picture tonight because he looks like he survived a night that would be an Est member's dream.
anything having to do with my divorce or my kid for the most part... or anything my lolly doesn't want me to discuss
I think there always has to be a hedge of some kind that protects your kids... so good for you. Man, I've said it before but I'll say it again: You're a good mom.
well, as you know, I do ramble on about personal stuff, but here it's under a filter (you're in it, natch). I try hard not to talk about money or immediate family issues, mostly because they sort themselves out too slowly or too quickly, you know? But other than that, I'm rather open here, more so than in RL. A lot more so, actually.
Hmm. *ponders that*
I would imagine it's the fact that this system acts as a filter all on it's own. Even the public posts are filtered in a way by the system itself...
Yay for being back at the gym! and YAY for being saps. Saps are the best. ::grin::
Good question today. I'd almost say nothing is too personal to discuss with others, 'cept I do have an 'Uber Trust' filter here on LJ, that I've used once. That was for a very explicit sex survey (gakked from you ::chuckle::), but most of the time I don't mind talking about sex so I don't know if I can really say that's too personal. I think it depends more on who the 'others' are.
So that falls under the levels of information filter. Certain people I can discuss anything with, others I'll talk about any topic but only to a certain depth, and with some I'll avoid all mention of certain topics.
Somehow I missed this yesterday. *kicks LJ*
Filtered, at least, are family issues. My Dad sometimes lurks and I'm not sure I want him up close and personal with my sister-related ranting.
