FAQ time!
zeerust
Except it's not really an FAQ... in fact, the reason I'm making this post is that I don't know what you all want to know about me, but I'm really keen for you to find those answers.

So, folks, ask me some questions. Either stuff that you're really keen to know the answer to, or stuff that just pops into your head.

Also: I currently have two filters that I'm working on. "Queer rage", for exactly what it sounds like, and "TMI", because I like to talk about my sex life too much. If you want in either, please let me know.

Most (but not all) posts in this journal are friends-locked. If you would like to friend me, by all means leave me a comment on this or any unlocked post, or send me a private message.

At present, I only have one filter - "queer rage", for... exactly what it sounds like - if you specifically would or would not like to be on that filter, please let me know.

Pst.

For those of you on my flist who haven't already, I think you should join sayingitwrong.

To quote directly from the userinfo:

The community is here to explore the unfortunate things that people say during delicate, sensitive, or vulnerable times, or that privileged people say to the less privileged. The idea is that a couple of times a week a mod will give the community a group or situation and the members comment with rude, hurtful, or unhelpful things they have heard, said to them or to others, in that situation or group. The focus of the community is on why these things are the wrong thing to say. Some things might be self-evident, but if you have a reasoning or story behind why a particular thing was hurtful, please share it.

What's the origin of your username? If you could change it to anything else, would you, and what would it be?


"zeerust" is from The Meaning of Liff by Douglas Adams and John Lloyd, and means "the particular kind of datedness which afflicts things that were originally designed to look futuristic" (or, in a nutshell, retro-futurism). (It's also a town in South Africa, and Victoria, Australia.)

It doesn't mean anything to me, it's just a word that I like. I don't think I'd change it now, too many people know me as zeerust and I've gotten too many pleasant comments about it. Plus, it's good for making punny portmanteaus with.

Friends cut. I'm sorry to those of you I cut; I just needed to make my journal feel a little safer to me.

My day is officially really dull right now.

So I am compulsively refreshing my friends page and being naughty and listening to music.

What should I do, friends?

Regular plug: has everyone seen the alphabet hug meme on ljhugbox?

A-B-C-D, E-F-G-H, I-J-K-L, M-N-O-P.

(And yes, just quietly, I am cursing myself for having a name beginning with z. ;) Why do you ask?)

(No, really, I just love the idea of the hugbox)
