I'm stuck at home right now waiting for a repair guy to come fix our washing machine. Also, I'm expecting a call from the mechanic for an estimate on repairing my car. Two expensive tastes that taste expensive together! But how are YOU, Livejournal? Do we have a When Harry Met Sally type relationship, at this point? Where we see each other once in between long stretches of time, and it's juuuust like old times, until something separates us again, until the next time? And then eventually we finally stay together, of course, but... I don't think it's at that point yet. I think right now, it's the part where we're in a bookstore, and I'm doing The World's Worst Job of Pretending I'm Reading A Book, and you're wearing RIDICULOUS glasses.

Anyway. Repair guy is supposed to be here "between 8 and noon." I should have called a cable guy to come out, too. That way they could both get here at noon.

My livejournal is ten years old. I really should have posted something on here on the very day, I guess, but whatyagondo? Holy crap, though, an entire decade! I feel like I should make a point to post in here more, due to that surreal longevity that this journal has, but then again... is anyone reading this? That probably shouldn't matter, right? But it does! Otherwise, I'd just make word documents and save them on my computer.

So, you know in movies where someone is cryogenically frozen, and they are finally revived, how they get up very slowly and stumble around a lot? Because it's been so long since they've used their muscles? That's how this post is.

Hey man, you've always had maybe my absolute favorite LJ of a dude I've never met in real life. I'm always happy to see you post. I need to post more myself.

Oh hey, thanks Manning! That's a pretty great compliment!

Oh man, I never thought about the two of you meeting and I am pretty sure it would result in an explosion of enthusiastic awesome.

I would like to second your friend's comment but, like, in a girl way.

Your posts are still great, and I sort of love how Livejournal is still kind of great, if creaky and all Russian or whatever now. (I'm not too far away from 10 either.)

Ha! Oh yeah, it's totally all Russian now! So weird!

Also, when I logged into Livejournal, I half expected to see a Facebook "like" button next to "Add comment" now. Yuck! I'm glad to see that hasn't happened.

So your livejournal is almost the same age as mine? Should we try to get them together for a play date? Or are they getting too old for that?

Mine is only 9, so they'd probably still have fun but they're old enough to be REALLY embarrassed about it.

I bet when we've figured out how to freeze people and revive them, we'll sometimes get Firefox crash-style messages:

"Well, this is embarrassing. Cyrofox cannot restore your life session. This is usually caused by a recently opened bottle of booze and a clumsy bloke tripping over the life support cord. Whoopsies!"
