Hi guys. I don't know if any of you are even watching me anymore but I'm kind of a dick. I came back to updating just to ditch it all for tumblr. I felt uninspired and unfunny which is pretty shit. Also, as I said recently on my tumblr, if I'm the only one reading what I'm writing then I'm just having a conversation with myself. If that's the case, well, honestly I do that every day with far less effort. But now I'm sitting in a room of 100 people watching Jim Lee create and that word - conversation - is rattling around my brain. LJ and tumblr are both great platforms for sharing our game but I'm missing the personal interaction this community used to have. I've lost track of simmers I followed religiously - who did what a lot of us did and stopped posting - I have no idea of any good legacies I should go follow but I guess what I'm saying is. I want to make a commitment to get involved again. And although this is probably another conversation with myself I'd like to challenge you to get involved. Comment on shit guys. Not just to say "good job". Let's start a fucking conversation. Let's get to know each other. I spent last night running through a haunted house with two people I met here, on livejournal, and realized fuck, these people know me better than some of the people in my real life do. And that's because of here. So that's what I'm going to do. No more commenting to gain followers or reciprocal comments. I want to get to know some people here and make some real friendships so yea.

I'm probably the biggest goddamn Internet curmudgeon in existence... but I agree. I'm glad to see you're still here, and I hope your uninspired moment passes soon. In the meantime, conversation sounds pretty good. So... did you go/are you going to Comicon?

I don't know if I'm a curmudgeon or not but I definitely get wildly annoyed at people on the Internet. Lol

Oh I'm sure it'll pass soon. I've actually got loads of ideas running through my head and am even considering posting/starting an original piece of fiction but I'm not sure about that. I've never done something like that so I don't know if I'm confident enough. </p>

I am at comic con right now and it was amazing. My husband and I just spent the last hour like 20ft from Jim lee watching him sketch and just talking about like. His work and it was amazing. We also caught the Firefly reunion panel and I absolutely cried. Not even ashamed. Have you ever been?

Nah, I'm too poor and too far away. :p Can't even get to FanExpo this year. But both the reunion and the Jim Lee pres sound like they were balls-out awesome. Tangentially related to Firefly - have you seen this ludicrousness?

I hope you put this on tumblr so I can reblog the shit out of it and add my two cents.

Also this spicy tuna roll is amazing. Also I love you.

It's now on tumblr for you, so you better reblog the shit out of it. And I'm glad your spicy tuna roll was amazing. My noodle bowl and pork pot stickers were also amazing. Also, I miss your face already. :(

I am trying to think of something inspiring to say but all I can think of is "YAY"!

(I didn't really know what else to say so have a gyrating naked man :D)

We're a community so lets be a Community! I'm currently arguing with my internet provider on the phone. I hate being on hold!
simmply_annasimmply_anna on July 17th, 2012 04:59 am (UTC)
I'm constantly arguing with my cell service provider on the phone and it's like 70/30 time spent on hold. It's the worst.
lmp_negativelmp_negative on July 17th, 2012 11:39 am (UTC)
Yup, and then there's the damn awful music they play and the electronic voice that reminds you that you're on hold and that you're '9th in the queue!' - yeah thanks for that! Ha
simmply_annasimmply_anna on July 18th, 2012 02:58 am (UTC)
Haha! Yea, we don't even get that. It's just like "You're on hold. Deal with it bitch" and then you just wait. And cry. And wish they weren't the only service provider for mobiles in town.

Something really shitty happened to me today and I was feeling all nauseous and depressed over it, so I started scouring the Internet for people that have made me feel loved. The image of the three of you in a haunted house cheered me significantly. I'm so happy you all are having so much fun. ♥
simmply_annasimmply_anna on July 17th, 2012 05:00 am (UTC)
Awww bb :( I'm sorry you had a crappy day.

And we had loads of fun. Yesterday we went on a horse drawn carriage ride through Seaport Village. It was awesome. <3
Jacquelinevayleen on July 17th, 2012 09:38 pm (UTC)
AW! ♥ I just sent you a mushy text firther explaining my feels from your post. I have no idea if you'll get it because it was pretty long, but I'll summarize it by saying you mean a lot to me. ♥♥♥
simmply_annasimmply_anna on July 18th, 2012 02:57 am (UTC)
I did get it but I haven't read it yet. I think it's either missing parts or not in order cause I was running around Toronto airport trying to read it and it seemed like it was missing stuff. BUT! You mean a lot to me too! We need to text more! :(
Jacquelinevayleen on July 19th, 2012 12:19 am (UTC)
Okay. Eeepers. I hope you got the whole thing, but if you didn't I can send it again. XD Out of order might be a little weird since I tend to get a bit rambley. As you well know. ♥ But agreed, we need to text more. I've been crazy busy with Hamlet 2. I wish you could see it because I think it's your kind of humor, but AK is a bit out of the way. Alas, alas.

I love your legacy! And I always loved to comment on it so we would get to chat a bit haha. But really, if you feel like coming back, I'm sure many of us will be so happy dkjfhdg.

I don't know you as well as other ljers do, in fact almost all I know is that you are awesomesauce. But would miss your entries if you chose to leave lj forever :/
simmply_annasimmply_anna on July 17th, 2012 05:02 am (UTC)
Well I've been doing the poor man's version of updating on tumblr. AKA I'm incredibly lazy. But I am thinking that when I get home from comic-con I will probably put together an update to catch people up on where the Mrmpfles are and what they are doing. Although at the moment it's not a lot because there are so many of them that there is no order. Just chaos.

Well now's your chance to get to know me! And vice versa. :3

I check in on your tumblr a lot, and would certainly come back to reading updates here. I was a big fan, re-read your legacy from the start when I began playing the sims 3 again after a long absence. Really, there's only two legacies I read now, and would love to find more through -- hah, -- that sense of community.

simmply_annasimmply_anna on July 18th, 2012 02:53 am (UTC)
I actually wrote you a reply last night and just when I hit post comment, my internet ran out and I was like "...I'm not paying for more internet" but now I'm at the Toronto airport and they have free wifi. Woooooo! I do love the Toronto airport.

It's hard to find new legacies to read. First off it's kind of like taking a chance. I mean, it could be awful, or it could be really good, and if it's really good there's nothing to stop that person from updating that legacy. And the more that happens to you - at least in my case - the less you want to even bother trying. At least that's how I felt. All my favourite legacies just disappeared and I was like "Why even bother starting a new one. They're just going to abandon me as well! *sob*" (I'm really a melodramatic teen girl at heart.)
Jessicajossoco on July 17th, 2012 11:37 pm (UTC)
well, i just wanted to say i totally agree about the community feeling being lost. besides my own, i really only see a few of the old legacies posted anymore. it's pretty dead, and simblr's great, but it doesn't have that feel i love about livejournal.

i miss your legacy and seeing you often around in general, and even though i'm really shy and awkward until you really get to know me, i'd like to make a connection and be great friends!
simmply_annasimmply_anna on July 18th, 2012 02:56 am (UTC)
I know what you mean. When I went to tumblr I kept trying to get that feeling back. Replying to posts and sending asks and so many people were just like "*thumbs up*" and just so not invested in anything other than how many followers they had and how many notes their posts got and it was just really annoying.

Well I think I'm going to try to get back into things. I am crazy busy this week but I think either tomorrow or Thursday I'm going to post some shit on tumblr and try to put together an update.

I'm the same way, don't worry. I have a hard time getting over that initial awkwardness of hey I just met you, and this is crazy.

I disagree 100% with this post. Who wants to know people from LJ? Gross! And you're deluded if you think you can make real friends on LJ. C'mon! /GOB Bluth
