(no subject)

There, that's better; now I feel more like myself. At some point I would love to post an entry that is not about fannish identity management. Wouldn't that be exciting? Someday soon, I promise. 8-)

Just FYI...

I'll be changing my DW journal name to match my LJ name. As it turns out, there's a limit to my ability -- and desire -- to reinvent myself. Trying to keep things simple here. 8-)

At some point I suppose I should upload some more icons. It won't be winter forever, you know.

Not much to report otherwise. Still unemployed, but I got a call from the parks yesterday, just to touch base and confirm I'm still interested in working this summer. There's also a couple of possible prospects I found on Craigslist, of all places. I never would have thought to look there, to be honest, but an acquaintance of mine suggested it. Craigslist -- it's what's for dinner. Or something.

Getting settled in

Expanding my circle, writing a decent bio, that sort of thing. I'm still kind of on the fence about importing my LJ; I can copy over what little fic I have posted at either journal by hand, and most everything else is okay where it is. I don't know. We'll see. So lazy.

Speaking of fic, I'm not sure I really want to post mine anywhere. Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure we haven't heard the last of SOPA, and frankly I'd rather not be on the bridge when The Company comes for us. I'm all for the power of transformative works and the Creative Commons thing, really. But I'm terribly cynical, and I doubt very much that TPTB will have learned anything about how the Internet works the next time they try something like this. And not to put too fine a point on it, the easiest way to not be used as an example is to not have anything out there that can be so used. Viva la revolution and all that, but don't be stupid about it, yeah?

Why, yes, that is a yellow streak down my back. Sorry. On the other hand, if I got arrested for piracy, I wouldn't have to worry about job-hunting anymore, would I?

A point of clarification

This is the part of reinventing yourself that they don't tell you about -- mistaken identity, or more specifically, when your new identity impinges on someone else's old one. On LiveJournal I'm shinymarigold, not harimad. There is a harimad on LiveJournal, but she is not me and I am not her. Just so you know, and you come here looking for someone else. Not that you all aren't welcome, of course. I just don't want anyone to be unpleasantly surprised. 8-)
