Things that fell out of my head...

Orkut: if you're on Orkut and haven't added me to your network of friends, please do. I made a halfass attempt to find you guys and only succeeded in finding redqueenofevil, solcita and celendis. (Siannan was my first since she promised me seventy-two virgins invited me.) If you want an invitation, let me know what e-mail address to send it to.

Gmail: I've got six invites. One of them could be yours if you're one of the first six next four people to e-mail me with a first name, last name and existing e-mail address to send the invite to.

LJ Phone Posts: apparently I'm a decent transcriber. If you want me to do yours, point me at 'em or e-mail the .ogg files to oddharmonic [at] gmail [dot] com and I'll reply with a transcription for you to post. It's good practice to keep my skills sharp.

Gallery: thanks to the ease of getting images organized with it, I've got most of the needlework I've finished in the last few years photographed and up (latest addition: the finished Seahorses needlepoint pillow). There are a few finished pieces I need to track down when we're in Colorado next month, but I'm wondering whether to include work-in-progress (WIP) pictures of the projects I'm currently working on. All of my current WIPs are *big* projects in various states of completion (New World Discovery is 12x16" and only needs a few colors of half-stitches and all of the French knots and backstitching to be complete, The Wedding is 14.25x18.75" and I'm going to be stitching like mad if I intend to finish it by August, and the wolves piece that's been in limbo for years is also 12x16" or so), so I feel like I'm holding back from showing everything I could in the gallery album since New World Discovery is so complete.

Ok, how adorable is that usericon?!! Oh my god, I LOVE IT!!

Next, & completely unrelated as I was going to write the first bit anyway, am I one of the first six?

Thanks. It was one of my first attempts to get a decent picture of myself after I got new glasses in February, but now I look at it and think "Man, this is going to tease vogonpoet when he's peeking at LJ from work!".

And yes, you were the second responder. I sent it to your livejournal.com address and put your first and last name in as Baroness Varla. I am too easily amused today. (:

Thank you, doll!

You are correct, it teases me. I shall have to extract payment for that. Again. When I get home. Hrm... and maybe again tomorrow morning... and... ;)

Oops, did I say that out loud?

Are you slipping me something in the water? LOL

You know where to find me. (;

And no, I'm not adding anything to the water. Maybe it's in the ice. *chuckles*

what is gmail? i keep reading people mentioning it. . . i'm so out of the loop.

Gmail is a free web-based e-mail service offered by Google. Its major selling points are that it offers 1 Gb (1000 Mb) of storage and it's searchable so saved messages are easier to find.

Right now it's a big deal because new accounts are by invitation only and there's a lot of to-do about its privacy, targeted ads, etc., but meh. It's web-based e-mail. I'm more excited by the space, particularly since I'm currently peeved at Yahoo for dropping the price on their premium accounts by half barely two months after I paid for another year. They also gave me more space, but it's not the same as 1 Gb in exchange for some targeted ads.

so am i too late, or are all the invites gone?
Jun. 22nd, 2004 09:06 am (UTC)
I sent one your way after Jojo gave me your e-mail address to send the invite to. (:
Jun. 22nd, 2004 09:15 am (UTC)
you are the bomb. . . thank you so much!

Jun. 22nd, 2004 03:04 pm (UTC)
Welcome. I'm not entirely sure I'm interesting, but I'm often funny... or at least funny-looking. (:

I found it after I made the post; I joined Gmail just before reading your mention of Wil Wheaton's weblog entry. I plan to donate a few from every batch of invite codes I get, or offer them through a friend of mine whose husband spends a lot of time in the field.

I initially recieved six invites, but I expect they'll be generated regularly like LJ did for permanent account holders -- I don't know the specific numbers anymore, but they were able to generate a number of invite codes weekly.

If you are so inclined, I think I might not be adverse to joining Orkut, but it's cool either way, so, uh yeah. Hooray!
Jun. 22nd, 2004 10:08 am (UTC)
I sent you an invitation. There's a metric buttload of Seattle people on Orkut if the communities are any indication -- there are subgroups for a couple of neighborhoods and things like sushi.
Jun. 22nd, 2004 07:30 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I have signed up with it! Thanks!
Jun. 22nd, 2004 12:38 am (UTC)
New World Discovery is awesome! Really beautiful.
Jun. 22nd, 2004 10:10 am (UTC)
I hope my working of it comes out looking as good as the sample I linked to. If it was my primary project right now I'd have it done by the end of July, but my sister's wedding piece is first on my to-do list right now.
Jun. 22nd, 2004 10:30 am (UTC)
That needlework is amazing and b-e-a-utiful! I can't believe the seahorse pillow - the colors! How much would it be to stitch Asia a little somethin somethin with her name on it? I know how to stitch but don't find myself doing it much anymore.
Jun. 23rd, 2004 02:45 pm (UTC)
Thank you.

Right now I'm booked for stitching (I'm trying to finish the wedding piece referenced in the post for my sister's wedding in August -- no bets on whether I'll make it, it's the first time I've worked on linen), but as soon as I'm free I'd be happy to do something for her. I just picked up a book of small (under 3" square finished) butterflies that she might like more than the butterfly piece I've already shown you. Once we agree on a design you like, we can talk about finishing -- there's so much more than framing and I'd love to try some of the alternatives sometime. (:

No hurry. No pressure. We will discuss this transaction later - heh. Look forward to it.
