well shit.

apparently LJ can't go back on the friends page farther than 300 entries.

that sucks. i hate having a gap in my LJ friends page that i haven't at least skimmed. i'm not sure if there's anything to do about it. i think i only got as far as August 12th.

*sigh* oh well. that'll teach me to go for so long without reading LJ. I do have to say that i've missed it.

Here's what's going on with me in a nutshell:

I'm holed up in Tennessee at Ken's place and will likely leave here either thursday or friday to go back to New Orleans. I'm anxious to get back because i'm ready to feel like i'm living there and ready to set up my apartment in such a way that it feels like Home, and i'm ready to get back to work - try to build some momentum for the marching stuff, build up my connections with Innovative, and start working on negotiating the marching band database.

i'm also ready to stop driving long distances for a while. The drive from NOLA to Murfreesboro is about 8 hours, and typically i'm good with that sort of a drive, but after having gone through the drive out to New Orleans in the first place, i'm glad that when i go back i don't have to drive outside of a thirty mile radius.

Overall, everything surrounding Hurricane Gustav was a fantastic social and political experience. It's quite different being on the inside of something of that magnitude versus an observer on the outside. I wrote a brief piece about it on darknote.org and encourage people to read it.

i'm not sure what else to say. *ponders*

i've missed everyone. there are still some people i'm missing, entries that i'm used to seeing from people that i'm not seeing. ah well.

If you really want to read back you can go to each person's LJ and do it from there.

i may do that at some point later if it feels important. at the time after spending a couple of hours reading back that far, doing that for all of my friends on an individual basis felt like too much effort.

I suppose you could read the LJs of the people who you are IRL friends first, then the ones who are interesting that you don't know IRL and then those who tend to babble on about stuff that isn't that interesting to you (though those in that catagory make one think "why are they on my FL when all they do is go on about Second Life/make-up/bad books/Big Brother/(insert things you find boring)?")

ooh ooh! you should listen to wgns (fm100.5, fm101.9, am1450) between 7:50 and 8:10am to catch some swap n' shop, which we used to listen to when we stayed summers at my grandparents house. usually people had green beans and puppies to sell or trade. i <3 swap n shop

and when you get done being all in the midst of your social and political experience, you should maybe give me your address so i can send you a pretty card or something. :-D no rush. i don't want to ruin your hurrican evacuation memories.

Murfreesboro?!?! No way - I went to MTSU my freshman year. It was a smallish town then. I hear the place has exploded since then and I would not recognize it. Ah well - things, they keep on changing.

drove around MTSU campus too because my friend Ken is going back there in the fall.

yeah, i'm sure it's a lot different there now. :D

There are two limits that i run into:

- Friends page only goes back two weeks
- Max friends entries is 999, though you can get more my using friends groups

Hope all is well in NO.
