Long time, no see.

Hey all,

Just a quick note to let you know that I am leaving LiveJournal for good. If anyone would like to stay in touch, I'll be at angledge.dreamwidth.org.

I loved the LJDQ & perhaps a less-intense DDQ could happen some time.

Reminder Thursday, Six Days Later

...yeah, ok, so timing hasn't been my strong point lately. But we can do this together, like teamwork, or murder. Wait, not that last one. I meant macrame. Yes.

Did you know that there's a quiz waiting to be played? It's true! And like all true things, you should go and take advantage of them while they're still around. After all, the truth is hard to find nowadays. Like unicorns. So go out there and play the quiz while it's still hot. Unleash your inner funny. Release the hounds. Release the kraken!



Go. Play. Take Quiz.

LJ Daily Answers: 28 July 2014, prelude

Well, since I didn't post a reminder for last week's quiz, we'll use this space as a reminder to go play this week's quizly goodness. And, as a bonus, we can have the answers to the "fake quiz" I posted back in June. Sorry about all this delay; I went on vacation and then took some time to catch up. It's been a busy summer.

Look, monkeys!
