I really don't want to talk about it. Tell you about it tomorrow. Hitting the hay right now.

Writer's Block: You Might Be Surprised to Hear...

What story of personal greatness, achievement or success would your co-workers or friends be surprised to learn about you?

I was the original model for Gregory the Terrible Eater. Having my story featured on Reading Rainbow was one of my shining moments as a kid!

Hi, how are all of you? I haven't updated in so long. Things are okay here at the LiveJournal office. Today we're working on getting a release out and release days are always busy, even though today's release is mostly bug fixes. tupshin is at the helm and gives us all constant updates about how the code push is going, and marta is making sure that information is getting out to everyone who needs it. coffeechica, the support volunteers, and a few others are beta testing today's changes to make sure any problems are taken care of before the release rolls out. Our sysadmins dwell and mhwest do the heavy lifting and keep the servers from keeling over. And of course, we keep in constant communication with our pals in the Moscow office to make sure all the changes happen as smoothly as possible.

The Customer Care team is in town this week! Normally they work out of their home offices across the United States, but every now and then we invite them to work here for a week. They are quite a loud bunch in this normally quiet office, but they always come bearing pants for me, and sometimes arie brings her famous candied pecans, so it's great to have the extra snacks people around.

Not much else to say! How have you been?

What should I be listening to?

Who else is on Last.fm?


I know I'm supposed to be a goat, not a sheep, but everyone at the office was doing it. I'm looking for friends and song recommendations!

I got mentioned in the latest news post!

Krissy asked me if I had anything to say about April's charity vgifts -- oh, boy, did I ever. For some reason, though, they didn't want to post my entire 12-page-long email about how awesome I think it is that we -- you, us! -- donated 14 goats to Heifer International. But they got the important bits, at least. Nice work, LJ!

(I spent some time trying to convince them not to donate me. No, I said, LJ will go to ruin without me. I'm still here. I think I convinced them.)

deck the goat

another goat?

burr86 woke me up this morning, bright and early. "I really wish I didn't have to be the one to tell you this," he said, "But I think deflatermouse found another goat." Oh, man, was I peeved. What was Simon thinking? LJ is my turf, and as long as you're on my turf, you play by my rules. And that means: no other goats!

I called Simon and confronted him. "Is there another goat in your life, Simon?"

"Uh, what?"

"I mean, I'll understand if you're not interested in our relationship anymore. People grow, people change."

"Oh, Frank, baby. You're still my one and only."

"So who's the other goat?"

I heard a laugh on the other end, one of those laughs that told me there was so much more to the story than I thought. "Well," Simon explained, "you've been such a great helper around the office. Always taking care of LJ, always making sure everything runs as best as you can. So I figured, for Christmas, that I'd get another goat." He emailed me a picture.

Okay, fine, I'll admit. That's one hot goat, and if I weren't in a committed relationship with LJ, I'd even ... ahem, nevermind. But that wasn't the point! Simon! Another goat! It's true! "We don't --"

He cut me off before I could finish. "Not for us! Do you think there's any goat who could replace you? I bought a goat from Oxfam, so we could spread the joy of having a goat to other families." (Simon's a bit of a geek, he even said "a href equals" and gave me the link over the phone.) "I love you, and you love me, and I wanted to share our love with others."

I breathed a sigh of relief as he continued, "I didn't want to tell you yet. I wanted it to be a surprise."

It was indeed a surprise! And, selfishly, was I relieved to hear that Simon wasn't cheating on me with another goat. But what a great present, indeed -- it was such a great present that I came to post about it right away! And, take it from me: whatever holiday you celebrate, consider giving the joy of a goat next year. Just make sure to tell any other goats in your life before they get suspicious!

Happy holidays, everyone!

I'm on TV?

Samantha wrote into LJ's Feedback address and showed us this:


Watch carefully at about 1:15. No, I haven't had lunch, but I'm intrigued! (Thanks, Samantha!)
