What's Your Hurry? Here's Your Hat

And so we come to the end of 2016. It's 4:45 pm here in Phoenix, we have the evening spread set up in the kitchen, I'm still listening to Christmas music, and I expect to be very happy to say goodbye to 2016.

Usually I don't say, with heartfelt feeling, "may it be a damned sight better than the last one," but in this case...? Yeah, I'll make an exception.

I don't know what to do about the whole LJ thing. I've converted everything over to Dreamwidth, but I don't like it as much as I like LJ, and I will be very sad to leave, but... Russia. I don't want to emulate our lovely president-elect. /irony

Today we braved the numerous detours to go to real brick-and-mortar bookstores. I wanted to go to Changing Hands today, but forgot about the New Year's Fiesta Bowl Parade, which had Central blocked off all the way to 7th Street on one side and 7th Avenue on the other, and Changing Hands is at 3rd Avenue. We did some wiggling and finally got there. I didn't find any of the books I wanted to find (either there or at Half-Price Books), but I got a few things to save up for our trip in March (much as I love my numerous Kindles, I still love having a paper book for some things). I probably should have gotten a Kindle version of Under the Dome, but it was THERE, so I picked it up.

I did forget to look at desk calendars, which was one of the things I wanted to look for.

Happy New Year to all.

Where are you going in March?

And ITA about DW vs LJ & "but...Russia." *sigh* I've moved everything over but haven't yet deleted my LJ. Thinking I'll still keep it and put a new pinned message to say where I've gone. Might even leave the old stuff except for all the Twitter crossposts, cyz really, none of it's worth anything spy-wise. I just hate that it's come to this.

Another cruise. Mom's taking us to the Caribbean again. I forget which islands this time.

If it weren't for you-know-who's Russia, I'd be okay with it; but it is, and that I object to. I also have to agree with Barb, they may decide to stop running the English-language side of things, which would effectively take care of my waffling. I've transferred over everything up to this most recent post... (because I can't stop posting from here, apparently.)

For now I'm staying here (though I do have DW too and imported everything there). I can't imagine posting much Russia will want to delete and they've owned this for years (though yes having the servers there gives them more leeway as to what they can do)

I'm more concerned with a) supporting you-know-who's Russia, and b) if they decide to eliminate the English-language support side.

the first is inevitable and I can't even find the support any more

Not necessarily. And certainly not so willingly.

That's the first step. Then what happens when they take it down completely?

Since I haven't needed it in over a decade I can honestly say I don't care
