So, does anyone else ever...  
...keep people on their f-list after they've disappeared, just in case they return? I still have stele3 on mine, and keep my fingers crossed that she'll change her mind. Today, though, I tried to Google missing bluesister, who took down her journal and disappeared over the summer. No luck there, and I finally admitted defeat and took her off my f-list just now. I still miss her, though, and wonder why she left. :(

New Office Road Hazard: Turkeys in the parking lot bothering each other. Yeesh, but they're big. They live onsite now, but their last parking lot appearance was over a year ago just days before Thanksgiving. May I say, that seemed... unwise at the time.

Catfights and flying fur: So much funnier in the abstract than the reality. And no, I'm not talking about SPN fandom (thought it's gotten cranky lately). No, I mean our actual little beasts, whose Cold War continues some 3 1/2 years later. They can usually be on the sofa at the same time now (a miracle!), and occasionally even touch, but most of the time... there's a lot of growling. And today, an actual fight that got them both kicked outdoors for awhile and necessitated unscheduled vacuuming. :(

Repeated phrases: What do you find yourself saying ALL the time? I mean out loud, not in your journal you silly person! This time of year, for me it's either Close the door OR (!) Get off the heating vent! Seriously, the whale-cat can form a hermetic seal over that thing, with all his splorch and his fur. :0

Tonight's SPN: Rewatch? Or skip? What would Dean do? It's his birthday, after all... Though I'd be more likely to do the opposite of Dean anyway. ;)

ETA: Ooh, it was "Fresh Blood." That one I'll always rewatch. \o/

Yes-- wild turkeys! Which are disturbingly large, and since you can see them up close... the resemblance to the vulture family is more obvious than one would like to think.

They used to haunt one of the communities on the city's bike path, a community with a lot of farms and rural-type spaces. They'd be on people's roofs, these giant stupid-looking birds! Then they started to multiply with a vengeance and take over the parkway (they're a bike path hazard now). Soon they showed up at my office, which has a small wetlands area on the property. And again... they've multiplies. :0

*continues to boggle*

As for your comments and question about old LJ friends, I haven't had the experience of anyone disappearing for good. When people have gone quiet, I've kept them, waiting for them to return.

However, I wanted to share that I recently added a, um, posthumous friend. I don't know if you caught any of that scandal where a new fandom person had stolen the fic, entries, and even comments of a dead woman's journal? When I found out, I went to see her LJ (which has been made a permanent account in memoriam), and I just thought of how much I'd have liked her and wanted to be her friend if I'd had the chance when she was still alive. So I friended her. Is that really weird? Anyway, some of her friends saw, and they said they appreciated it, so I guess that much was good.

No, not at all-- she was a personality you would have enjoyed a continuing relationship with, and you'll always have her journal to refer to for wisdom/humor/inspiration.

I think that's lovely, actually.
