Giddy with delight

Love the new Star Wars trailer.


I couldn't think of a good use for this myself, but maybe somebody reading does:

The .NINJA, the extension that is hard to see in the dark, has been in
promotion since the beginning of the month, and until the last day of
April, at the unbeatable price of 2 excl. VAT for every 1-year
creation. For more on this promo, see our news at

late summer on the balcony

ETA: Temporarily setting post public for debugging.

Unseasonably warm September, not that I am complaining. The chilis and peppers are still thriving outside, though nights are getting cold enough that I should probably harvest the remainder.

Sitting outside in lovely warm sun and contemplating the lavender. Usually cut it back September 1st, but there are still flowers so I think I will delay a week. Bland mint tea and indifferent book, I am practicing being bored today. Not something I am good at.

Attempted chilli photo, probably too dark, but I shall leave it as I can't seem to figure out the flash right now.

City of Heroes

Just read that CoH is closing down. So sad. No more flying across the rooftops or playing with costumes. Sniffle. Not that I have actually subscribed since I ran out of time and health to do much mmorpging, but I always had this idea I would get back to it eventually. Tried one of the other superhero mmo's once, nowhere near as fun or flexible. sic transit...

ETA: I thought I had a zillion screencaps from this game, but they seem to have fallen victim to switching computers. (Why does that always happen, despite my efforts to copy every single byte?) Anyhow, here's my (much slimmer) self-portrait from my glory days on CoH...


It was a dark and stormy night...

I've been hiding from the news as part of my holiday rituals. (It's always a low-tech 1974 during my holidays :) So this 'Dagmar' storm took me by surprise last night. Now that was one of the more impressive storms of late, I barely dared look out the window to see the damage. Fortunately, we seem to have gotten away with some windblown garbage from the one neighbor who cleverly piled their stuff against the outside of the trashcan when it was full. So that was exciting.

Otherwise, a nice, low-key weekend with much good food and enjoyment of presents. And Skype is wonderful invention with family as scattered as mine :)

Mood themes

Okay, testing testing, do my mood themes work here now?

ETA: Hrm. Didn't work on this post, but suddenly turned up on some of my previous ones. Oddnes. Fiddling a bit more...
ETA2: Yay, works!
ETA3: Boo, broken again. Hosting trouble, I suspect. (If I've guessed correctly, the 'weird' icon might work.)


I was going to post on Dreamwidth, what with LJ begin buggy, but apparently it's been too long since I was on there. Had to try several time to get the password right, and ended up with a message about my ip address being banned for trying too often. Using the 'forgotten password' link didn't help either. The most annoying thing is that there's no info anywhere about what temporarily banned means -- minutes? hours? days? weeks? Bah. Over to Google+ to try if that cooperates today.


Spent the evening watching two 15-meter dragons battle it out along the Aker river. Pictures sometime when I have more braincells :) (and computer respons at a rate faster than 1 character every two seconds. Hrmm, now what's up...)

Yet another shopping bag...

At this rate I'm going to defeat the purpose of having reusable shopping bags, by having so many I'll have to start disposing of them. But not quite yet, and I'm having so much fun with them... This is the newest aquisition, which is a sparkly red rose when folded up.
Cut size of pictures...Collapse )

Poor Livejournal...

I'm so glad so many of my Livejournal friends have made the move to google+. Probably need to revive my Dreamwidth account if this continues...
