Sup, this is my DW. Feel free to add.
corknut: (atlantis] hee)
No one uses personal journals anymore so no one will read this, but I'm on a nostalgia kick tonight, and I was just reflecting on how you all are undeniably awesome and how I really do have good memories of all of you-- it doesn't matter whether I last talked to you yesterday or five years ago, or whether we are/were close friends or just casual acquaintances.

I hope you're all well.
corknut: (stock] peace is a group effort)
Hey, flist(s)! This is kind of a non-entry, but I know there are at least a few of you who still use personal journals, and some of you I don't have added on any other sites. So I'm checking in! What's up, how is everyone, etc.

corknut: (atla] deliberation)
Out of curiosity: how many people on my flist still use their personal accounts on LJ and/or DW?
corknut: (stock] sunset)
Looking through my old ORHS LJ entries. I'd forgotten how many times I'd mentioned Marina.
corknut: (stock] lift)
Was perfection. I already want to go see it again.
corknut: (the lion king] oh hello)
Just a note that this is Iddy (formerly "iddylu")! I finally caved and got a rename token. Five points if you know the connection between this name and my LJ username, [livejournal.com profile] banerry.

I keep wanting to go see The Hunger Games again and again; it's kind of ridiculous.

And if it's true that the DVD isn't coming out until the fall, I'm going to be so sad. 8(

Bold the ones you've read COMPLETELY, italicize the ones you've read part of. Watching the movie doesn't count. Abridged versions don't count either.

I pretty much never start books and don't finish them, so the italicized ones just mean that I'm in the middle of reading them (albeit very slowly in some cases, since I read a lot of books at once).

Merry Christmas, flists!

Despite the fact that I'm not a fan of a lot of the things LJ has done/is doing, I don't plan on quitting the site. That said! A large portion of my flist has moved over to DW, and so I'm going to start doing more stuff there too. For most entries, I'll probably post to DW and then crosspost to LJ, with commenting enabled in both places. As far as communities I participate in, I'll likely follow them wherever they go. As for the ones I mod: [livejournal.com profile] whatnancysaid and [livejournal.com profile] wickedchouette will stay where they are for the time being, though when comm porting goes up I might see about crossposting there too...? Either way I don't think it'll be a huge deal because neither of them have big memberbases, so I can basically do whatever I feel like there. [livejournal.com profile] dramadramaduck is still in the process of deciding whether or not to move but all y'all who are members/mods there know the story so I don't need to talk about that here.

Juuuuuust testing this cross-posting stuff-- this entry is originally being made from my DreamWidth account (I'm iddylu there).
corknut: (dexter- unsureness)

... Huh. I'm wondering if this Writer's Block was chosen for today on purpose.
corknut: (homestuck- je ne regrette rien)
OH HEY REMEMBER ME? I completely checked out on putting up an entry about my last day in Iceland. Granted, I pretty much got up and then went straight to the airport, so this is mostly going to be an excuse to show off pictures of Greenland and Canada that I took from the plane.

image-heavy! )

And that's all! After getting into Logan I fooled around for a while waiting to be picked up (there was a cool kinetic sculpture near the baggage checks that amused me for a while). Then we went to IHOP and I regaled my parents with stories. Whoooo.

Like my train trip in April, I'm ending up finishing these entries days after I've already returned home.

image-heavy! )

I'll put an entry up for my last day (I've been lazy; the pictures haven't even hit Facebook yet) later today or maybe tomorrow. ... Probably. I'll do it eventually, anyway.
corknut: (pirates- time to go!)
Yesterday was my favorite day so far. I went on a Super Jeep tour that took us off-road and into places that most people can't go-- namely, right up to the foot of Eyjafjallajökull in the Þórsmörk valley.

image-heavy! )

And so ends my favorite day in Iceland!
corknut: (stock- colorful)
Maybe for the rest of my entries I'll just do them the day after, so that I don't have to think about saying up late to write them up.

image-heavy! )

So, like I said, slow day. Today's entry will likely come tomorrow!
corknut: (peter pan- neverneverland)
Sorry this is late! After uploading ALL OF THE PICUTRES (ALL OF THEM) to Facebook last night, I was too tired to write up a journal entry, especially since yesterday was another pretty busy day. I'm glad that my camera was behaving and allowing me to take a buttload of pictures, but that did mean that it took ages to get them all online.

image-heavy! )

And so that was yesterday! After the tour I went down near the Old Harbour area to have dinner (at Thai Reykjavík again, of course), and then I went into the visitor's center and got an Eyjafjallajökull t-shirt for Jenny (she would probably never wear it, but whatever). Then I went back to the hostel and began my battle to upload ALL THESE PICTURES.
corknut: (homestuck- be so mean when I wanna be)
Busy day today!

image-heavy! )

We got back a little less than an hour ago, and I'm tiiiiiiiired. Going to take a shower and head to bed! Don't be surprised if my entry tomorrow starts out "So I woke up at noon..."
corknut: (stock- twirl)
Another slow day today! It's Sunday, so the buses were on a reduced schedule. In the morning, I went down to an area called Grandi to Elko Electronics, where I hoped I'd be able to get a memory card reader so I could transfer my pictures to my laptop. And surprise, I got one! It took a while to get back because I couldn't figure out what exactly the Sunday bus schedule was, but I went back into the store and they let me use a computer to check the bus website and figure it out. (Apparently the Sunday schedules are the same as the holiday schedules, but they don't say that on the signs posted near the bus stops or on the brochures.)

Can I just say that I love the Reykjavík public bus system? It's all very well-organized, and even though the route maps and such are all in Icelandic, they're still fairly easy to read and figure out. The drivers I've encountered have also all been very nice and helpful; if I'm not sure what stop I need or what bus to catch, they've always either had an answer for me or been able to radio someone else and ask them.

Anyway, after that, I went back to the hostel to check and see if the memory card reader worked, and it did! So here are my pictures from the past two days before I jump into today.

image-heavy! )

And that was basically it-- I got back to the hostel a little earlier than usual and just did some stuff here (the northern lights tour was cancelled again!). And now I'm tired so I'm going to finish this up and go to bed.
