Wandering the Great Lakes...

...trying not to get completely hosed.

Communities I moderate and/or maintain:
tim_o_fans Owner/maintainer/moderator. Alone for now.
ontd_gubler Co-mod with infinitycluster and britt_m_89
idiotboxworship Co-mod with startracer. I admit, if wank happens here, I will laugh my ass off just because it happened.


If you're here because of an issue in one of those communities, send me a PM and I will deal with it as soon as possible. DO NOT contact me in my personal journal if you're here because of a community issue. You will only succeed in pissing me off more.

Daria is Sarcastic Love. ♥
(Thank you kaimelarfeylove)

Okay then, about me.

First of all, this journal is mostly friends only. I check my profile fairly often, so I'll see if anyone has friended me. Expect a comment or two on your journal if you've added me. If I don't know who you are or why you've friended me, I will probably not add you back. Coming into my LJ and being an asshole IS a bannable offense. I'm not popular enough to warrant this too often, but it has happened. Anonymous commenting is banned.

Veronica Mars is Detective Love ♥
(Thank you biteme_icons)

I sometimes attempt to teach myself some more Japanese...badly. Sometimes I may write in Japanese, if you want a translation, ask.

Apparently I'm getting a reputation for online tech support. I've got nothing against helping people with their computers, since mine pisses me off too, but you've either got to be nice to me or pay me.

(Thank you robes_of_earth)

This is where I come to rant about whatever has gone wrong for the day/week/month/year/decade/life. Occasionally the TV shows I love make it here too. Not currently in love with anything airing, but I do have lots of love for Veronica Mars, Buffy, Angel, Psych, Top Gear, Sherlock, Criminal Minds, Daria, and I forget what all else. Books and video games and art and photography may also be commented on here. Politics maybe on occasion. Oh. And gardening and cooking. I am a woman of many hobbies. Not so sure about talent.

I'm unemployed, long-term. So I spend a lot of time online trying not to go insane. It's not working. If you know someone who needs a borderline insaneentry-level analytical chemist, drop me a line.

Thank you to whoever I stole this from. (let me know if you made this, I'll give credit)

For today's fun and trying economic times.
"Tough times don't last. Tough people do."

"Be careful who you hate. It could be someone that you love."

"May you live in interesting times." ~ Old Chinese Curse. I think it applies. Also: "May you find what you're looking for."

"Those who say it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it." ~ Old Chinese Proverb

"Life sucks no matter what, so don't be fooled by a location change." Daria

For the curious-my name.

迷 Spelled mei. Means to be lost or astray.
看 Spelled mi. Means to watch over or to see.
ちゃん Spelled chan. Honorific used amongst close friends or for younger kids.

These two kanji together are not a real word in any dictionary, but Japanese is fun way. So I've made up a name for myself that means I'm lost, but watching it all anyways. Maybe I'll switch it to dark and watching someday. :p
