For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.

Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

A Meme...

Here is what you do.

1) List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2) Tag seven people to do the same.
3) Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

OK then, here we go...

1) I (like Maz08) also have to wear a particular perfume on Liverpool match days - Hugo XX and if they win, the following day, CK Euphoria. (Haven't been wearing that much lately....)

2) I have the worst habit of becoming totally addicted to every reality show on tv in a really unhealthy way. Latest is CBB, dancing on ice, got to dance, so you think you can dance, american idol.... (see where I'm going with this!!)

3) I don't get hangovers - ever. A mild headache for about 30 minutes when I wake up is the extent of it.

4) I've seen Britney Spears in concert four times...

5) I bruise easily. I could literally nudge something and be black and blue for weeks.

6) I am terrified of birds. When a bird swoops down from the sky I actually scream and shriek as if I was being attacked in a horror movie also terrifying all the people around me.

7) I own over 40 pairs of shoes, yet only have two pairs I can wear to work and absolutely no boots which made walking everywhere in the ice and snow last week rather life endangering! The rest are all my babies, my pride and joy's, sandals, stilettos, wedges, etc. The higher the better!!

I tag "whoever wants to do it!"

Well I did it guys. I don't know if any of you remember a few months ago I was talking about my little crush on Rob Kearney who plays rugby for Leinster and Ireland. Anyway, last night I met him in town!!!!! He and his friends were so nice and chatted for ages and he was nice enough to pose for (several!) pics with me!! Absolutely made my week!!

Good picture of him - BAD picture of me! lol


Smile though yout heart is aching....

Random Ramblings.....

Until it goes through I will hope.

Onto the randomness, I was NOT watching Big Brother this year. Sure I knew the housemates names, I heard a few things about the goings on in the house but didn't really care much. But suddenly, out of nowhere, I have fallen in love with Charlie and Rodrigo!! Sooo cute!

I'm also going on holidays on Saturday. To Majorca. Where a bomb went off today. Interesting....
