I Miss LJ!

So, a few months ago I was feeling kind of over LJ, a little bit. I'd just started a new job, didn't really have time to keep up, and just trying to read my friends-list was feeling like a little bit of a burden.

So when I moved into my new place (and lost access to my old housemates' extra computer), I told myself I could get by with quick email checks at work and I really wouldn't miss it that much while I was trying to save up the money to buy a decent used laptop (which, because of other things, I don't estimate I'll be able to afford until about August).

But Friday night I went over to [ profile] inlovewithnight's apartment to celebrate her birthday with cake and fangirling. And as LJ names were exchanged and Springsteen videos from the 80s were lovingly mocked, I started to realize that I kind of missed LJ.

And this afternoon, when I had a chance for uninterrupted Internet use at a friend's place, I went to check my personal LJ, which I haven't done in weeks (I've posted to my role-playing ones a couple of times briefly), I realized that I miss it A LOT. I miss the fanfic and the meta and the random thoughts. I miss connecting with geographically distant RL friends. I just miss it period.

And then there was the part where, because I fell upon my friends' internet like a starving wolf on a deer carcass, I missed the last bus to the metro to DC, and had to invite myself to crash at their place. But they're the kind of friends I can do that with, for which I am profoundly grateful.
