liv: cup of tea with text from HHGttG (teeeeea)
[personal profile] liv
I hate leaving negative things at the top of my journal, but I'm a bit busy and haven't quite got time to post about happier topics. Thinking through what was at the root of my emotional state, and then getting lots of wonderful supportive comments, thank you all, has made me feel a lot better.

A few weeks ago, some people were posting a meme to the effect of, when you see this, post something on your DW. Which is a really nice idea, actually, because it's a totally low-pressure way to up the activity levels here, and that's a self-reinforcing system because the more active your local network is, the more fun it is to be on DW and the more you want to post yourself. And it gets over the barrier of: I haven't posted for ages, where do I start, or: I can't post here unless I have something important to say or something polished and well-written. But I found myself a little resentful because I'd just done the December daily posting meme, so I didn't see why I should have to be subject to a lot of complaints about how nobody ever posts here any more.

Anyway, in a similar spirit, I want to try reviving one of the first games I ever played on LJ, almost exactly ten years ago.

I'm going to list three things in order of how much I like them. If you see this, and if you feel like playing, repost the list in your own journal. You can change the order if you disagree with my judgement of how likeable the things are. The rule is that you need to add one new thing that's better than anything in the parent list, and one new thing that's worse than anything on the parent list, and one new thing somewhere in the middle (doesn't have to be the exact centre). Include a link back to where you got the meme from. And then we can follow the list around various journals, seeing how it mutates. I am still friends with some of the people I met playing this a decade ago; let's see how it works now.

    Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
