Hello! Does anybody still read this?

I am basically declaring LJ bankruptcy: I haven't read my friends feed for so long that there's just no way I can catch up, so I'm not going to try. If enough people are still around here, though, I might start reading & posting again. I miss conversations that aren't just retweets and soundbites and outrage; I miss social media that isn't centred on advertising, news, or 'news'; I miss you guys, individually and collectively.

If you want a very quick update on the state of the j4: I am typing this from underneath a sleeping 8-week-old. The rest of my life is a mess, but she is the Best Baby. <3

I'm still here, but postly posting on Dreamwidth (my bookmeme postings are regularly cross-posted, though).

I'm still here – reading, and commenting, but pretty bad at posting these days.

Still here, still posting the odd thing, but generally keeping my head below the parapet these days.

I still read this - helloooo! (Sadly I too am quite bad at writing diary entries these days. Perhaps because my life has become rather less dramaful and there's less to write...)

Still very much here (and on Dreamwidth). I don't care if it's old-fashioned, this is home. And I miss long-form [livejournal.com profile] j4 too! I'm so glad you have the best baby and would be glad to hear more about her; don't be afraid that baby anecdotes are boring.

Update since you haven't been reading: [livejournal.com profile] cartesiandaemon and I have been dating [livejournal.com profile] ghoti and [livejournal.com profile] cjwatson for two years. I'm weekly commuting between my job at Keele and my life and relationships in Cambridge. The latter is generally wonderful and the former is kind of a very slow train-wreck, so I'm working towards giving up a conventional academic career to look for something more support-ish which would let me move to Cam full time.

Still reading, still occasionally posting :-) Still meaning to see you and baby H! which is a bit of a shameful admission for someone in the same town. (But I don't want to descend unwarned on you with an armful of noisy older kids, and also work is full-on for me right now.)

*waves* my LJ is just cross-posts from my Dreamwidth, and those are pretty sparse and often braindumpy; but I do keep an eye on my flist here.

(Probably, I should update my default icon, as it's ~7 years old and I'm significantly more genderqueer these days...)

Still here! I verymuch want to meet the Best Baby, and B has asked to see I again. Too bad we were ill for Furry Vengance. Also my parents were here over half-term and that makes everything awkward. :P

I still read things here, at least sometimes, and I erratically post stuff (well, crosspost from Dreamwidth), too. And as others have said, Yay for best baby, and I hope everyone's doing well.

Oh, and in case: http://mabelgubbins.co.uk/mabel17.html. This Sunday!

I don't know how well babies (even best ones) get on with swords and pubs, but thought I'd mention it in case!
