Rewatching Sherlock is making me stupid excited about the new series. Hopefully it will go up for download right after airing and I don't wait several months like last time, haha.

Also, weird question: I used that two-weeks free of paid account last week and immediately regretted it because I realized my cuts didn't lead to the standard LJ format, and now it's staying in my stylesheet style. Fics are much easier to read the other way, right? I'm debating whether I ever really want to go back to a paid account when I don't use that many icons anymore any way and if I like the other stylesheet better. I guess it'll depend how much money I have after the holidays, haha.

There should be a box or something somewhere you can ticky to fix that!

I actually have tried that, but for some reason this stylesheet I use doesn't have that, I even asked the creator about it a while back and she said you can't do it! Isn't that weird? Ah, the price I pay for vanity ;)

Wow, that's dumb!

But then I haven't done a damn thing with my layout since I made my LJ in 2003 so....

Also, you could include a link to the format=light code thingy when you make a fic entry so that people can just click on that.

Reeeeally? How would I do that?

Yeah, I'm kind of attached to this layout, it's easy to change and easy to change the header, I don't know if I would bother with a new one either, haha.

Like this. (http://authormichals.livejournal.com/373916.html?format=light)

Duuuude!

God, I always think I know plenty about HTML to appear competent, then I realize I'm still stupid about it.

LOL, oh I am so ignorant about it! I just know how to navigate LJ. (I always use ?style=mine, because I like the blue header boxes better than the grey of the 'light' format... but that wouldn't work for you.)

Haha, I can do LJ for the most part (dude, Tumblr is 10x more complicated for some reason). I tried style=mine once and it just ended up confusing me, I could never tell what was my journal and what was other people's, lol. And when I click a fic and they have it set to show it in my style? ALWAYS weirds me out.

Yet another reason why I will not get a Tumblr. ;)

I don't like it when people link to the 'leave a comment' box. RUDE.

Awww, the html's weird but Tumblr's kind of awesome, if you ever rethink it I'd be happy to show you around haha.

OH GOD I HATE THAT. Desperate for validation much?

I just don't watch tv shows fast enough, since I'm on my computer more than my tv (not in the same room, lol, otherwise I probs would do both at once) & I live on the west coast. I'd get spoiled ALL. THE. TIME.

I feel like it is an attempt to control me. MUST. RESIST.

Date: 2011-12-14 03:02 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] authormichals.livejournal.com
Oh, yeah, I could see that. I have this application that catches spoilers for me though and the only time I got really spoiled was just one person being kind of a dick about it.

I know! It just smacks of desperation too.

But isn't everyone dicks about spoilers on Tumblr?

LOL, well that part just makes me feel bad for them... a bit, anyway.

Eh, the spoilers I get on Tumblr are mostly because I don't mind hearing them. I don't follow many people who have any reason or way of spoiling anyone. That one time was because I literally had just followed that person and didn't realize that they didn't seem to care about spoiling everyone. Mostly it's just pretty pictures and graphics and nonsense over there, haha.

Yeah, I hate when people need to, like, self-promote that much. If I comment I comment, that's up to me, I know where the button is.

But how do you know someone is going to post spoilers until they do? XD

Date: 2011-12-14 06:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] authormichals.livejournal.com
Haha, true. I have an application cued to anyone posting anything with the words "spoiler" or "spoilers" in it that hides those posts, and people tend to be good about tagging over there. Otherwise I mainly just don't follow people who post them, like some of them are people from LJ who don't like being spoiled themselves. So far it's worked except that one thing.

I CANNOT TAKE SUCH A CASUAL ATTITUDE TOWARD SPOILERS, OKAY?!?! ;)

ALRIGHT I UNDERSTAND I JUST WANTED YOU ON TUMBLR SO I CAN ANNOY YOU EVEN MORE OFTEN XD

WELL BE ON LJ MORE, GOSH!

BUT LJ DOESN'T UPDATE EVERY 5 SECONDS AND MY BRAIN NEEDS THE CONSTANT STIMULATION OR I'LL DIE LIKE A SHARK.

From: [identity profile] authormichals.livejournal.com
OH COME ON YOU KNOW THAT'S TRUE.

Also it doesn't smush all the comments into an impossible to read column...like now, haha.

Join more comms? Make blog & tumblr feeds? (someone did this with maurissa tancharoen's tumblr, & I love them for it.)

Well. That is just because your layout sucks. ?FORMAT=LIGHT!!?,!

Date: 2011-12-14 08:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] authormichals.livejournal.com
Heeeeey, be nice. I like my layout *pets it*

It's not that I don't like LJ anymore, Tumblr's just different. And I don't keep up with the comms I'm in now, I don't think I'm allowed to join more.
