Permanent Accounts and A Strange Day

Just saw the notice that permanent accounts will be on sale on Dec. 4. It's interesting seeing the price now of $175.

Been a weird day. Good, but odd. Jet really wanted a video game fix, so he and I played with the grandparents went on a walk. Then he remembered a school assignment he had, and he needed to build an adobe house. So he and I rode to Hobby Lobby to buy some clay for him to build with.



Problem is that I had a mild case of stomach flu... and he wanted to eat at McDonald's and it worked out okay, as I just had a mug of hot water, and he ate, and we went the rest of the way to the store and got his clay. The ride actually cleared my head and my body of stuff, mostly, and by the time we got back home I felt much better.

He built his project and I got to work on the write up of the Don't Lose Your Edge game from the Oakland trip. 5000 words and counting and it's pretty good, I think, but it's clearly rp. *grins* With a few hanging plot lines that should be at least caught again in the next session... Jet needed a little online research to see what adobe bricks really looked like, after his initial wall collapsed... poor guy. He was devastated, but he figured it out himself.

Isabel made a gorgeous dinner, a seven layer artichoke heart casserole, and it was really, really good. We all ate, watched some of their photos from South Africa, including a detailed tour of the prison Nelson Mandala was kept in. Whew. Jet got to see some of "How It's Made" and went to sleep easily tonight, compared to last night when I think he had a little of what I had today. Bleah. I'm still a little sick, so I need to go to sleep. Sleep should be good.

And I'm darned close on the word count goal. I'm just NOT at all close with respect to getting Twin Souls done. Got distracted by rp with someone that really needed their muses kicked into gear, by Silver and Black vignettes, by Don't Lose Your Edge (which is well worth it), and by a story that just keeps haunting me. So it's kind of worth it, but I have got another 2000 words on TS's next chapter done. I refuse to go a whole month without another chapter.

Word Count total: 46,497
  • Current Mood: crappy crappy
Permanent account sale notices here and here.

I'm ambivalent about getting one; $175 seems a little steep.

Have you found the perm. account thing to be useful? Does it add much to the LJ experience?
Excellent links. Thank you.

It's always a bit steeper than one expects from the yearly price, but this is definitely steeper than when I got mine.

I find it very useful to never have to remember when I have to pay them again. It means I never have to worry about space or icons, but you're not into fanfic, to it's not like you need the dozens I've been needing just to keep up with the characters I've been writing.

It doesn't really add that much to the experience, just useful for my accounting purposes; but it does mean I have have something of an emotional shackle *keeping* me here. Even when it might be politically sweeter to do more on another journal somewhere else.
You have a permanent account? Was it more or less when you got it? if you don't mind my asking? I didn't know they were or had ever offered them that is interesting....do you like yours?

Anyway I am suppe jealous of your word count!!!!!

and hope you have an amazing holiday sweetie
I do! It's a little more than when I got mine. I like mine. I like never having to worry about when to pay; but I'll admit it does mean that it'll be really hard for me to leave this particular journal and account, so I have to be aware of that with how I use it.

suppe! *snuggles you* It's just words, first draft, ofttimes crappy words. *laughs*

I hope you have a *great* Thanksgiving, love.
Urgh! Sorry about the tummy stuff. Good to hear about the word count, but sorry to hear Twins Souls is still holding out on you. Wish I could help you on that one because I adore your story so much.

Happy Thanksgiving sweetie. :D
Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you have a great one! *smiles*

Thanks!
