The problem with not posting constantly is that then I feel the urge to start every post with an apology for not posting, which makes me not post because guilt is only a motivator up to a point. So let's not do that. If you follow me on Twitter (ursulav) or listen to one of the three podcasts, you know I'm not dead! And if you don't, uh...Hi! I'm not dead!

Nothing much is going on here--I wish I had a new book to drop on you or something, but while there's a lot in the works, nothing ready right this minute. Also it's hot and obscenely muggy and the garden looks like Jurassic Park, only with chickens instead of velociraptors, but I'm told that velociraptors were only the size of turkeys anyway. The dew point is one degree below the ambient temperature and we are 99% humidity, so the windows are perpetually covered in condensation. In theory, fall is coming, but so is the heat death of the universe, and I will believe it when I see it. 

Wherever you're hailing from, I hope you're doing well! I just felt like saying hi.

Also, in case you missed it, one of Kevin's baby chicks has grown up to be a rooster, because sexing chicks is hard. Dottie is now Dotson, and he is a large, imperious, very handsome bird who still runs in terror from Strong Independent Chicken despite being significantly larger than she is.

Glad to hear from you again. I don't twitter or pod-whatever, so unless you also FB (and if you abstain, you have more willpower than me), here is where I await with bated breath.

Ooh so nice to hear from you. Hope that eventually it will get cooler not just where you live but everywhere else that has had a horribly hot summer *fingers crossed*


I've grown past the point of apologizing for lack of posting and just do it. Either people will accept I'm on my own schedule of sharing things or not. Either way I know I'm always happy to see people pop up now and again on LJ.

Life is what happens while you're otherwise busy.

If nothing else happens... why not post a gaming story?
(I really miss the insanity)

If you mean the narration from her gaming group, she often posts that on Twitter. It is often hysterical.

*grins, waves from under rock*

Good to see posts wherever they show up, and no need for guilt.

Sometimes I think the courage of a rooster is inversely proportional to his size. My daughter's bantam roosters weigh less than a pound, but they will attack anything that moves (which is usually my feet), and no matter how much I kick them away, they keep coming back.

You're not quite dead yet, but you'll be stone dead in a minute?

I'm very glad that you, as Pratchett said, "aten't dead."

You may not be dead, but LiveJournal pretty much is. When the Russian company decided to institute draconian anti-certain-lifestyle policies, most everyone I know headed off for more-tolerant pastures. It echoes in here.

For those who haven't make the connection over at DW, Ursula's page there is: https://tkingfisher.dreamwidth.org/

I say you should go ahead and still call him Dottie. I mean, in the movie Up!, we had Kevin who laid eggs. No judging! No judging! ;)

Welcome back. I"m mostly in dreamwidth these days but noticed you'd posted and was pleased to see it.

I don't come around here much anymore either. I follow you on twitter thought :)

I do miss reading long form posts from you though.

But no one posts here anymore, so... *shrug*

also, for all your massive dino-needs, try the utahraptor :D

Glad you're back! I kind of missed the gardening stories.
Rooster-Bob. Yay!

I'm just glad you're still here, on LJ of all places, where things seem so nice & calm. :-)

Good to know you are still in the land of the living.

Even the strongest, bravest rooster knows who really rules the coop!

What a delightful surprise! That's what LJ is for these days, delightful surprises. I left Twitter after The Election, although if I'd realized you were there I might have kept up the habit.

...my corner of LJ has active people still, and I never got used to DW. Mostly just have a backup of my LJ there. Happy to see you!

Same here and at that I don't back up at DW veryboften.

:D good to see you around again!

Glad you are back.

I'm glad you're not dead!

I'm not sure if you remember me or not! But I for one am GLAD you're not dead!
