Fabulous banner! Great idea...have to figure out how to make such a post.

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 01:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you!

It's easy to do -- make a post like normal (remembering to leave it public) but change the date to something way off in the future, and it will stay at the top of your journal.

Now, the question is, will I still be journalling come 1st January 2029... ?

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 03:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Ooff, and I forgot to say, when you make the entry, check the "date out of order" box!

[identity profile] multred-a.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 03:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Thanks hun!

[identity profile] precious-rosie.livejournal.com 2009-03-26 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Of course, stationery! :-)

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 01:54 pm (UTC)(link)
It just had to be ;) There are some beautiful banners out there but that one seemed very... me!

[identity profile] precious-rosie.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 03:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Absolutely! :-) I can't walk past Paperchase without thinking of it as 'your' shop. :-)

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 03:10 pm (UTC)(link)
We were buying garden stuff in "InStore" today and I managed to sneak some rainbow coloured writing paper into the basket... I just can't help myself.

Paperchase is just *gorgeous*!

[identity profile] precious-rosie.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 03:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Hee! Good for you! :-)

Does Paperchase have a storecard, or is that tempting fate? ;-)

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 03:44 pm (UTC)(link)
I daren't ask...

*waves* I know it's not much of a comment, but I have a hurty head at the moment. :¬}

*waves back* Thank you for commenting! How is your head now?

Love the banner.

Thank you! Le Fetish makes some incredible icons and banners...

This icon is one of hers too!

[identity profile] lizziegee.livejournal.com 2009-03-27 02:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Loving your banner :-)

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2009-03-28 01:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you! As I said to Sarah, Le Fetish is very talented :)

Hello there *waves*

Of course I don't! Have added you too :)

Hi, I'm incredibly sorry if you don't want a comment like this, (and even more terribly sorry if you've already gotten something about this), but I noticed some similar interests and communities between us, and even my community, [livejournal.com profile] kiediselite. I was wondering if you'd like to join? I was recently made mod, so it's getting more active; I'm revamping, and reorganizing everything. It's going really well, thus far. Basically, it's a 'daily' community, as there will be a daily photo; but it's also news-telling, icon-sharing, poll-taking, and all things Anthony Kiedis. It'd be cool to see you around.

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2009-08-10 07:56 am (UTC)(link)
Thanks for the heads-up, I'll have a look at the comm. Glad to hear it's doing well and congrats on your new position as mod!

[identity profile] andymydear.livejournal.com 2009-08-10 11:50 am (UTC)(link)
Awesome.
Thanks so much! Seriously.

Hello there Maggie! Of course you can be my friend, I shall be honoured to add you to my f-list.

Woof!!

[identity profile] samrainbow.livejournal.com 2010-01-21 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm glad it turned out the way you wanted it to. Re-deployment isn't fun when you don't want to. I have a few friends that are wishing they had gone instead as they are not happy in the new roles.

I'm loving the pigeon :D

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2010-01-22 01:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you! Yes, sometimes it can work but not always and it's hard then because you feel very stuck. I hope that your friends manage to get sorted soon.

If I could teach the pigeon that song, he'd be unstoppable!

I'd love to be added, I hear you write Sherlock fanfic :)

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2010-08-12 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Hello! (I love your icon, btw!)

I think you may have me confused with someone else as I don't write Sherlock fanfic, although I do love the show! Maybe I should give writing some a try ;)

We seem to share a few interests though, so if you still want to be added then I'm happy to add you!

[identity profile] spellingwitch.livejournal.com 2010-08-14 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Sure I'd still love to be added :)

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2010-08-15 03:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Cool! I've added you. Hello! :)

[identity profile] catskulls.livejournal.com 2010-10-02 05:00 pm (UTC)(link)
i've added you... so, if you'd like to have a look-see at my limited profile, although it's prob best to just read through some of my journal, you might find that you would like to add me back? here's hoping, anyway. thanx. bye.

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2010-10-09 09:16 am (UTC)(link)
Thanks for the add, I shall have a read of your profile and journal... :)

Curious how you found me -- do we know each other from somewhere?

[identity profile] londongirl27.livejournal.com 2010-11-03 08:39 am (UTC)(link)
Hi there,

I'm not sure if you're adding new friends at the moment, but if so, I was wondering if you'd like a new one. :) We actually have a mutual friend - [livejournal.com profile] belladonna77 - and a while back, she recommended that you'd make a great addition to my f-list. (I had participated in a 'recommend-a-friend' meme, and that's when she mentioned your username.)

I took a peek at your profile, and it seems like we share a few interests. I like Sherlock Holmes, for instance, but so far, my interest has been limited to the 2009 movie. I've yet to try the BBC version. At one point, I also used to watch Robin Hood. And I noticed that you have James Badge Dale listed as an interest/fave. That's pretty cool, since one of my favorite new fandoms is Rubicon. I haven't seen him in 'The Pacific' yet, but I'm thinking of seeing it.

Anyway, feel free to take a look at my profile, too. And there's really no pressure - you don't have to friend me if you don't want to. I'm just trying to scope out new people with varied interests. :)

In any case, thanks for reading this!

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2010-11-04 07:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Hello there :)

Thanks for your message. I'm always happy to make new friends and I've seen you commenting on [livejournal.com profile] belladonna77's journal, so hello and welcome.

Besides, anyone who likes the lovely James Badge Dale is onto a winner with me! I haven't caught any of 'Rubicon' yet but it's supposed to be starting over here in the next couple of months so I am waiting with baited breath. I'll be interested to know what you think of 'The Pacific'; it's not an easy watch but it's very, very good. I will also be interested to hear what you think of the BBC's 'Sherlock'; I really enjoyed it but haven't seen the 2009 film yet (it's on the list!).

Anyway, I shall definitely add you. Thanks for seeking me out and I look forward to getting to know you!

[identity profile] londongirl27.livejournal.com 2010-11-08 07:52 am (UTC)(link)
Hello again!

Thank you for your reply and for friending me! :) I'm sorry that I wasn't able to reply much earlier. I had a heck of a time troubleshooting my laptop this weekend, so I put everything on the backburner. Ugh. :P

I look forward to seeing what you think of 'Rubicon'. Some people have complained about the slow pacing, but hopefully, you'll enjoy it. The build-up is worth it, IMO. :) 'The Pacific' finally got released here in the US, so I'm going to rent it on Netflix. I confess - I'm usually not one for military dramas, although I've seen a few like 'Black Hawk Down' and 'Saving Private Ryan'. But I've heard rave reviews about it, and of course, my growing fondness for JBD has made me even more curious to see it, *lol*. So, I'm looking forward to it - and here's hoping I have the stamina to get through all 10 episodes! Wow, next to that, 'Sherlock' seems like a walk in the park with its episode count. ;D

Anyway, I'll add you in right now, and I hope to talk to you soon! :D

Regards,
MJ

And thank you for friending me back :D I hope you've got your laptop sorted now, it's a nightmare when things all go wrong with the technology!

I'm really looking forward to 'Rubicon'. I've heard that the first few episodes are a bit of a slow-burner but that it picks up the pace after a while. I am just waiting to get a start date now... it might be after Christmas for us. I think if you have made it through 'Black Hawk Down' and 'Saving Private Ryan' you will be fine with 'The Pacific'. I did shed a few tears at one episode... but I shan't say anything else until you've seen it! You'll fly through 'Sherlock' though, LOL!

Hope you've had a good day :D

[identity profile] londongirl27.livejournal.com 2010-11-13 10:49 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, you're totally welcome to the add! :D

Gosh, did you hear, though? 'Rubicon' was canceled by the network, so we won't be getting Season 2. :( Very disappointing, but I suppose it's somewhat expected since the ratings were never that high over here. It's really too bad that AMC wasn't willing to give it a second chance, though. :\

On the flip side, thanks to the Veteran's Day holiday, I was able to tape a complete rerun of 'The Pacific' this past week, so now, I just have to find time to watch it in its entirety. The only problem is that my taping cut off one of the episodes, so I'll have to find that one online somehow. But hey - at least now I don't have to wait to see it on rental! :)

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2010-11-13 01:39 pm (UTC)(link)
I heard about 'Rubicon' yesterday! It always seemed like a bit of a slow-burner and I guess networks want shows that are mega-hits from the outset. It is a shame though. It still hasn't started over here, I'm on watch for it as I think it will be soon. We'd better still get it or else I'll be cross!

Good news about being able to tape 'The Pacific'! I'm sure you'll be able to find the missing bit of that episode somewhere :)

[identity profile] solentfish45.livejournal.com 2011-07-22 08:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Hi - may I please be added as we're both lovers of British comedy and Bonfire Night? Thanks so much.

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2011-08-04 12:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Hello there. Thanks for the add - I've added you back. Although I should apologise in advance as this journal is a pretty depressing place to be at the moment... !

[identity profile] brwsk.livejournal.com 2011-09-26 10:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Hi. I was going to add you just because we have several interests in common (would actually be more but I am trying not to be too easy to find by certain people, not that I expect them to be looking for me, but just in case, y'know). Of course you being friends only, there's hardly any point me adding you unless I ask you to add me too. I'm not very interesting I'm afraid... mostly rants atm. But I do have a stationery fetish and I am under 5'2" tall. Does that help? *^__^*

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2011-09-27 10:03 am (UTC)(link)
Hello there! Thanks for adding me. You had me at stationery fetish so I've added you back :) I can't say that my journal is astonishingly interesting as I tend to either moan about work or ramble about TV, but I'm looking forward to catching up with yours!

[identity profile] brwsk.livejournal.com 2011-09-28 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
Much thanks for the add - I'm now feeling motivated to do a bit of a stocktake of my excessive stationery items and post pictures for your general amusement ;)

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2011-10-02 05:26 pm (UTC)(link)
My pleasure! Please do, I am always curious to see what wonderful stationery items other people own :D

[identity profile] brwsk.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 05:57 am (UTC)(link)
It's in progress... taking masses of photos, need to trim them and add captions or else set them up in a gallery. This may take a while :p

[identity profile] spectralis.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 07:25 am (UTC)(link)
I like that this is taking on a life of its own and becoming a project! :D
