At the top of my journal--not the navigation bar, but in the actual journal layout, there's an extra link to memories called "unknown view" and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. (I thought it might be something here, but no.) It was there in the last journal style I had too, so maybe it's something weird in the custom layout code. Has anyone else noticed this or did I screw something up when changing the styles?

If I did screw up, is there a simple way to fix it? Because as I think we all know by now, I can only do simple. *g*

To illustrate that point: I really liked [personal profile] eisakay's layout and asked where she got it. When I followed the link, there were no pictures in the instructions, so I figured it was way too complicated. Now that I've gone through grrliz's illustrated steps a couple times, I might be able to do it, though. We'll see when I get tired of this layout and decide to try a new one.

Have changed my journal style again in search to find one as readable as my LJ one. Still not happy. Will try again in about a week or so. Or maybe I will just leave it until some more become available here at DW so it's easier to change.

I just went through and removed a bunch of openids of people who now have journals from my info page. I don't see what the point of having those still out there if they're not in use anymore. It makes the page look neater without them. I wish there was a way to remove a deleted one using the web interface, but if there is, I didn't see it. On LJ, I'd use semagic, but I don't use a client for DW yet. I should probably look into that if I'm going to use it much, because I'm not a fan of posting from the web. I like my keyboard shortcuts too much. :)

Does all the crossposting confuse anyone else? I'm never sure exactly how far back on DW I've already read because I see a lot of the same posts from LJ. So I'm wondering if read it here or I'd just seen it over there.

I just realized that all my posts on DW to date have made me look really simple minded. What a lovely first impression to be giving!

Why can I not edit/delete entries? Am I stupid or is the option not there? I looked everywhere last night and then decided that I was just too tired and it would all make sense in the morning. No such luck. I still can't find it.

Maybe I need to switch journal styles? Leave it to me to pick the one that doesn't actually work. heh.

ETA: NEVER MIND I FOUND IT. It's not at all intuitive that you have to click on the subject line of the post to make those options come up. I don't even know why I tried it myself, just a "what happens when I do this?" mentality, I guess.

EDIT #2: I changed styles, even though I don't like the black background or the design all that much. At least all the doohickeys I need are visible and available.

You can find out you're actually worth at Human For Sale.

I am apparently worth exactly: $1,955,550.00.

Which means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things, but it was funny to see the expression on Mr C's face when I told him he could no longer afford me.

You ever clicked a link that led to another that led to another that led to another and, like, an hour and a half later you realized that you have completely freaked yourself out and may never, ever be the same again?

Nah, me neither.

D'you hear me, Reality? We're through. Things are obviously not working out between us anymore. We just don't connect. In the words of Wipeout, there's a distance between us. We tried it and failed and now it's time to move on.

This embarrassing public breakup brought to you by watching three hours of MMC which included so much out of order Emerald Cove that I sent a teary e-mail to my friend who sent the tape saying:

Maybe I should cut away in case of Emerald Cove spoilers )

because anyone who would read this has probably already been to The Wall and read at least some of Allecto's amazing work, right? Well, I'm feeling strangely moved to do more than just send private feedback (which I did, but still...), so I'm here to say, go read:

Old Times which is a fabulous JC/Tony story that I actually had to ask my friends about first because this pairing tends to lead to some depressing stories and I just wasn't in a place to handle that right now. Well, no fear with this one. It's funny and happy-making and Justin and Brit are so cute I just want to hug them.

Buddy Fuck . Hmm, I think I'm finally seeing a pattern to what kind of story really makes me jump up and down. It's the stories that surprise me that have the strongest effect. I clicked on this story and realized it was about Wade and promptly rolled my eyes. Yeah, fine, whatever. Convince me, dammit. Allecto did. I liked Wade a lot in the story and only part of it was because Nick did. And then the other boyband member...well. Loved that development too. Trying not to be spoilery here, but it's hard.

Anyway, there are a lot of really great stories on her page, but these are my two favorites, I think. They both surprised me in the best possible ways. What more could you want?

When BSB is talking to Joan Rivers, Nick says they've been coming to the Grammys for a couple of years and they always think "we want a grammy, we want a Grammy, I hope we win, I hope we win"

A few minutes later, Nsync is talking to Joan and she points out that they've been nominated 7 times and never won. Chris immediately says "We don't want to break the streak" and Lance says "Yeah, we like it that way"

So my question is...who's being more honest? Are Nsync really that blase about the whole thing? Or are they just so used to not getting the so-called signs of "respect" from the music industry that they can't help but joke about it and play it down? Are they afraid people will think less of them if they say "Yes, we would like to win a Grammy."

Does anyone else think that JC would give his eye teeth and his firstborn for a Grammy?

And that if Justin had won for anything that wasn't equally shared by the guys that he'd have gone solo so fast our heads would spin? He still might. MTV certainly seems to think so. I will be very saddened the day that happens because I truly think the five of them are strongest together.

Oddly enough, I don't have the same emotional response to Nick's solo project and Backstreet's future as a result. I can actually see him doing his little thing and it not tearing the group apart. They seem to be all doing their own thing anyway.

I hope both groups stay together for many happy, prosperous years to come. But I'm starting to have doubts that weren't at all credible even during all the hiatus/space trip talk of the last couple weeks. I don't like feeling or thinking this way, so feel free to convince me I'm worrying for nothing. please?

And I even know why I had it, which is unusual.

I was in this place where each livejournal was a room, only it was all open, like stores in a mall. And I walked around stopping at different people's journals and talking to them--which is pretty much what I was doing right before I went to bed.

And then I made out with Nick Carter for a while and then I woke up. Needless to say, I was not happy about waking up--especially since it was still the middle of the night and I didn't have to be up yet.

So yes. I like it when my subconscious isn't being cryptic and dreams actually make sense. There was even a little drama at the beginning when I was starting to hook up with Nick because I didn't want the guys from Nsync to see us together. I especially didn't want JC to know. But then I either got over it or Nsync went away because it ceased to be an issue. I was pleasantly surprised at what a gentleman Nick was.

It was a very good dream. And I need more coffee, so I think I'll go get some.

Nelly's blinging bracelet.

Chris's jacket. that thing is hella cool, man.

JC's "I <3 NY" t-shirt. He's the sweetest boy in the WORLD, people.

Lance's pants. guh? guh!

And if any of those things come with the guy still attached... well, that's okay too.

oh and a U2 observation that may have been made before, but I'm curious. Do they ever let Larry talk? Or is his job just to stand there and look pretty? Because if it is, I say... well done! He's fabulous at it.

Can Nelly be my rapper boyfriend? I don't have one of those and he's so cute--as long as he keeps his mouth shut. Nelly, dude, two words for you: dental work. You can afford it now.

The much anticipated collaboration between my pop boyfriend (and his boyfriends ;-) and my new rapper boyfriend was not embarrassing. And that's pretty much all I hope for these days. I was disappointed--but not at all surprised--that Justin was, yet again, cast in the starring role, so to speak. It's 5 guys called NSYNC, not "Justin Timberlake and his back up singers". Whatever. I almost wish he would go and do a solo album, just so everyone would finally know whether he really is the solo superstar they seem to think he is or whether those other guys are actually pretty talented too. OK< reading over that it doesn't seem very coherent but dang it, I just get so frustrated. I understand the guy has some sort of talent, even if his voice doesn't appeal to me, but I really, really, REALLY do not understand why JC doesn't get the same level of adoration from the media and the rest of the music industry because he is just as talented, if not more (and it's obvious what my opinion on that is).

Now, on to some other pretty boys, or should I say... Boys. Yes. Backstreet. Oh yes. AJ looked SO GOOD. Oh my goodness, I wanted to give him a big hug and a pat on the back and a "way to go, dude!" and... then lick him senseless. I was not feeling Nick's shirt and his hair did not look its best. Ah, whatever. He was cute and didn't say anything really stupid on the pre-shows, so good for him. Kevin and Howie also looked very nice. Was Brian there? sorry, it's my usual reaction to poor Brian

Because I'm not just all about the boys-- I have to say how thrilled and happy I am that Allison Krauss & Union Station won the awards they did. And The Lucky One totally deserved it. I love that song so much, and Allison sounds like an angel on that record.

I'm so glad I hit the record button before Mary J. Blige's performance. I love her so much and she killed. No More Drama, indeed. Go Mary!

It snowed over night and they CLOSED SCHOOL today. So I've had not only the sick Mr. C but also both kids home today. And of course, all the snow is gone now. It's still cold though. My neighbor L. went back to work today so I have to start picking up her little boy from daycare every afternoon again. I told her I was sick, but she didn't seem to care--as usual--so if he gets sick, it's not my fault. Well, it will be in the technical sense, but I refuse to feel guilty about it.

"Steven" was on the opening of TRL a little while ago in a little Dell commercial parody. Very cute. I almost missed it, but Mr C happened to be watching and called me to come back into the room.

I just went to look at some pre-Grammy pics and came to the conclusion that there are few things that make my heart jump around in my chest like seeing the members of NSync dressed in suits and ties and looking like grownups. They're such handsome men and they really look like it. Not "pretty"* and not "puppies" or "kittens", but real young adult MEN. It's really nice.

* JC really isvery pretty though. He just can't help it!
