Yesterday morning, on his birthday, I had a dream about a very good friend and his girlfriend getting married.  (No, it wasn't [ profile] buz, it was [ profile] tresdon )  They wore matching tan shorts, green shirts, he had loafers and she wore a cute little pair of flats.  This was important for some reason.  They looked very cute.


This morning I had a dream that I was pointing my camera at a friend to take a picture and when I looked through the viewfinder I saw a wasp. I realized the wasp was inside the lens and remarked upon it to my friend, asking how the hell could a wasp get into my lens?  She asked if I had swapped the lens since the last time I used it and I responded that I hadn't.

While still puzzling over this some random man came by and snatched the camera out of my hands.  I chased after him yelling that I needed my data card.  He pulled the lens off the camera and yanked the stuffing (yes really) and wasp out of the lens.  I think the wasp flew away.  He tossed my data card on the ground where I picked it up.

He handed me the body of the camera back, smiled and walked off with my mutilated lens.  I remembered I had another identical lens so I put it on my camera.  I went to the camera store where I asked how it was possible for a wasp to get inside the lens.  They asked me if I had swapped the lens.  O_o  No I had not.  They had no answers.

Somebody explain that one please.  Oy vey.

For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.

Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.
