Ask Away

Borrowed from octoberland:

"Because we never really know each other as well as we think, in response to this post I'd like you to ask a question. Anything about which you are curious, anything you feel you ought to know about me. Silly, serious, personal, fannish. Ask away. Then copy this to your own journal, and see what people don't know about you."

5:20 p.m. edit: I decided to delete the public version of this post, as the people most likely to see my question were my already-friends.

Who am I? Why am I here? A ponderin' entry...

I've posted less lately. I've been in regroup-and-rethink mode about this journal: what should I be writing about?

I'm staying put in LiveJournal, trust me, but I also noticed quite a few of my LJ friends doing the same sort of soul-searching: possibly stopping their posting, or trying something different, or not being all that personal. zarhooie noted how many people she knew were just posting memes and YouTube links, for example.

The thing is, knowing that this journal has fans makes me want to write better. I don't really think it's "performance anxiety," unless it's a very mild case. But I'm thinking longer about whether I should post stuff; I want the entries to be reasonably substantial and at least interesting; and I don't want to post for the sake of posting. (Kind of like when I broke my habit of an entry a day.)

So I'm here. I've also been organizing my LJ (tagging concertedly for the first time) to make it, I hope, easier to explore and reference. I like what I've written here, if I may have an ego moment. So maybe my LJ will evolve.

It should stay interesting.

In the meantime, because it amuses me to do so, here's a YouTube link! smwance linked to this song listing every single episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation:
