Well, it’s finally over. Livejournal, I mean. I gave them fourteen years of my life, but that appears to be all in the past. Doing all my journaling here from now on, and no longer cross-posting. I’ll be deleting my LJ ere long, or at least “sensitive” posts. Don’t know if I’ll keep up with the weekly self-portraits thing. The Weekly Puck, which I just updated, is still going strong.

I have to say, I don’t feel that Dreamwidth has the community that LJ did. I mean, people do this “granting access” thing, but I can’t find a way to read their posts apart from actually clicking on their name to read all their posts at once. Am I missing something? I know that DW is not LJ, but I feel there must be something obvious I’m overlooking. Apart from that, it kind of feels like shouting into Outer Space. There’s something disappointingly lacking in communication about DW, at least that I have seen so far. Writing with no audience isn’t terribly satisfying.

Speaking of “orange,” I applied henna to my hair over the past 24 hours. This is the first time I have used it in many a year. I was hoping for something more auburn, and fearing something more Here’s Lucy. I think I got something a little between the two extremes, but it’s still a little Tangy Citrus™ for my liking. Likely, it will mellow with time.

You don’t see it in the above image. That’s pre-henna. You’ll see the results soon enough. Meanwhile, my hair is super soft and exudes that henna smell (think really, really strong black tea).

The Beard & Moustache Contest is coming up this Friday. I was hoping to get a little cheering section going for my first ever competition.

It must be “dreaming about hair” month on LJ, as I just woke up from a dream that I coloured my hair red and green, à la Todd Rundgren.

I called the look “Animé Progbear.”
