So ... yeah  
At une certaine temps of the month, I find myself far more susceptible to mean and wretched thoughts than normal. In this case I decided to absent myself rather than subject my flist to a laundry list of my woes. It is reassuring, I suppose, that the majority of my issues and insecurities can be blame on the fact that I have a vagina. Then again, it begs the question of why that supposedly benign higher power didn't rally around and make me a man.

I've spent the intervening time with my delicious physiology textbook, delighting in the havoc sodium intake can wreak on one's urine output rate. I'm also reading … and that's when it fell off in my hand. The Americans out there will know this as Away Laughing On A Fast Camel. Yes, it's true, Americans are the modern world's only guardians of propriety. It does make me wonder why the book I got from Harvard, A Mind of its Own: A Cultural History of the Penis wasn't renamed Cocks Ahoy! for import by the same moral coin. Hypocrisy, I believe, may be the answer.

After a refreshing dose of perspective, I return with two queries for anyone who can claim knowledge in these areas.

Q) Is it possible to dump the struck-out deleted journals from your profile page? I'm anal enough that they make me itchy to look at them. (The unnecessary imbalance, you know.) I seem to have accumulated an astonishing number of them -- although I know for a fact that one person deleted her journal and started a new one, from which I was excluded. Yeah, that hurt, but not so much as the excess baggage I'm lugging around the internets in the form of deleted names. Any takers?

Q+1) I made a batch of icons that were, for me, quite good. The ones I made yesterday uploaded fine … the ones I made today, nada. Do they have to age a little, like wine or cheese, before lj will accept them? Is that it?

In other news, the parentship's tarmac looks excellent. Bless their cotton socks.

WHEE!

I've been wanting to do this for so long, but have been held back by my assumption that it was impossible. Thankee kindly!

Go to your user page and look for the 'your settings/your friends option' on the left. Click on it and go down the list, checking the box to the right of the ones you wish to delete. Go to the bottom and click on save changes. then go back to your user page and refresh this should get rid of the unwanted defunct journals.

The difference in the last two sets of directions, depends on which style you have your journal set on.

yeah, but if the deleted-struck out journals 'list' you as a 'friend', then it'll still show on your 'friend of' (or the list of people who have listed you as a friend), won't it? so she'll still see them in at least one friend grouping, yeah? or is that info purged when said journalist (heh) deletes their account?

They're the ones I was hoping to dump -- and it works, too. Me happy now. :D

I think if you ban the deleted journals, that removes them from your info. Instructions are here.

As for the icons, I have nothing...

Ahahaha- I had no idea you liked Tenipuri.

Now, leave Seigaku and join the Dark Side Hyoutei and Rikkai fangirls...

It's a new thing. But it looks set to be a LARGE HAIRY MIND STEALING one, too.

[confused] But I thought Hyoutei were the bad guys? Like the guy that didn't speak ... he amused me immensely. Except for the captain guy that everyone slashes with Momo despite his huge love for Kaidou.

Okay shutting up now.

Ah, and I actually knew the answer. Oh well.

I think I love your icon.

Yours is great too. Although not everyone would get it ... damn TV.

Except for anime DVDs.

Sorry to hear about your woes, and, I guess, about your vagina. :) Hope it seems friendlier soon.

The only other thing I really have to say is that I like that you are in Des Moines. Oh, Iowa. You are so flat and cheerful.

It's never very friendly, but sometimes we have Wild Western style showdowns. Not pretty. :(

Des Moines seems to be the hidden Coolness Capital of America. I keep seeing it everywhere. What is it about that place? Was Elvis born there or something?
