 It's pathetic how tired doing a few hours of actual work makes me. I am so soft D: And also, easily frustrated in the gaps between stimulation, although luckily only internally. At least, I hope so. Thursday night, I got in and only stayed awake because I was starving and needed food. 

RL goings on )

If you are on my flist, you probably like books and reading, at least a little, and talking to other fandom-y people. These are all excellent things! Perhaps you, then, would like to join bookdeyada_club, which despite having a user account instead of a community one is in fact an LJ based book club for fannish minded people. We read books, and then we talk about them. Fun, right?

If you join there's no pressure to read every book if you are being too busy or if you just don't want to that time, and anyone can nominate a book from any genre (except, I think they do have to be fiction?) which we vote for. If your book doesn't get picked the first time it is nominated, you can always nominate it again. We're all very friendly and discussion topics can be on anything - from feminism to delicious slashiness. We all come from a fandom background, which I think is great because it means we can discuss books using fandom and internet language if we want to, which I at least would so not be comfortable at a book club based at my local library or whatever.

So, if there's a book you've read recently that you think deserves to be read and discussed by more people, or if you would like some more book recs, or even if you like reading but realise you can't remember the last time you read an actual new book. Come meet likewise people at bookdeyada_club!

edited now it actually is a comm! Come join!

 Over the last year, I have fallen out of love with facebook. 

I still go on it every day, because I do still like my friends and it is useful, but I resent facebook. There doesn't seem to be much of an alternative around. This annoys me. Bebo was eaten by MySpace, and MySpace was sucked dry by facebook, but there it seems to have stopped. Perhaps because the whole idea of "social networking" got old - Twitter and tumblr and other places have blown up offering something very different, and facebook stays dominant in a world where there are no longer any natural competing predators. 

Whatever. Azz pointed out that Diaspora* is a baby site, basically trying to be facebook but with decent privacy options as far as I can see so far. I am at the cautiously poking it stage. I can't tell whether it will be "the next big thing" or just another flop in the sea of the internet. It's still in private alpha, so no one is there. Yet, I hope.

It has an optional type box for "gender". It might be good. 

My point is, would anyone like an invite code and come poke it a bit with me?
