State of the Gaby
So, I've been sick for over a week now - it started Wednesday evening but I woke up Thursday morning with a raging headcold that turned into a sinusitis with some serious respiratory problems over the weekend. Yesterday, my ENT doc informed me that my right ear was also infected.

I've basically been in a semi-vegitative state since last Friday. I missed A LOT of stuff obviously, since I've only really been back online today. So, apologies for the radio silence but there's no way I will manage to catch up on my flist. If I missed anything important or fun or, ya know, ridiculously hot 'n sexy, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Speaking of LJ - WTF?! Am I the only one who gets redirected to the actual entry when I click on the LJ-cut link?! This is annoying, to say the least. What's a cut for if you can't expand the post by clicking on it while remaining on your own damn flist feed?!

But then! THEN! I come here to post this update, and the update page is all fucked up! What is this?!

Or this?!

Or this?!?!

And especially, FFS, THIS???

(Sidenote: since I have no way to access my scrapbook - no, even if I open the scrapbook, I can no longer upload to it! - I had to use a different browser to log in under a different LJ username, an account that uses the new style, and lo! I could upload pics there! So I've copy-pasted the html coding from there. If this clusterfuck has anything to do with the fact that I refused to switch to the new style, well, FU, LJ. I will NOT use the new style. Make the old style work. NOW. Fuckers processed the automatic payment for my regular account today of all days. FIGURES. *fumes*)

If this is what LJ is like now, I doubt I'll be pretty active for the time being. Reading my flist is frustrating enough with the damn cut not working properly. Posting is clearly a nightmare. I haven't tried to comment anywhere yet, but chances are that'll be fucked up, too. *shakes fist*

Considering that I'll have quite a bit of fic posting to do in the next few weeks, I'm going to smash my head against the nearest wall right now in preparation for things to come.

Allow me to let John Oliver sum up this year so far - with the LJ fuck-up clearly being the cherry on top.

Now let's hope this works. Since I can't preview my own entry, I have no clue whether any of the embedded links actually work...

ETA: yay! No way to set security to "friends only"! Well done, LJ! Guess I'll just let everyone see my rant against the world in general and you in particular!
