I've gotta say, I am absolutely loving how quiet this site is. Livejournal has been acting up and gobbling memory for months on end because of all the extra ads that aren't supposed to be there and that they claim are glitches, which they mysteriously don't fix. I've barely been on LJ for months, in part because of this.

A friend was telling me about her ideas for an alternate dimension she wants to write a story about. That, plus my aggravation over the movie Only Angels Have Wings, seem to have combined to cause me to have a dream about Baxter Stockman and Irma Langinstein from the 1987 Ninja Turtles series working for Baloo and Wildcat on TaleSpin. WTH. It seemed to be pre-series, so no Rebecca, Kit, or Molly. Irma was the secretary and ... I'm not sure what Baxter was doing. It was a world where humans and animals coexisted quite happily.

Telling my friend about it ended up causing me to wonder what would happen if Baxter and Barney somehow wandered into the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic verse for a couple of hours. If they did, though, they would remain human and not be turned into animals. Oh no. Never. It would be like this way cute Stargate/Pony crossover story I found where the Stargate characters found their way to the Pony world but stayed human while there. Maybe I'll tinker with the idea in a blurb or maybe not. I've got plenty of actual story ideas to write! I'm on story #39 of my Turtles series.

It's kind of nice to be at this quiet, content stage. Sometimes I'm longing to buy a lot of things and trying to figure out how to divide my money to get the most possible out of it. Right now, there's nothing I seriously want and I'm enjoying just being happy with my Turtles DVDs and figures and Baxter plushie and my stories. And the Knight Rider complete series set I bought at Wal-Mart for $25. Squeee.

I do wish I could get the Mega Bloks Technodrome, though. Especially since it's the only way to get a Splinter figure right now. But it's highly unlikely I will ever be able to get that. Even on sale, it's $148, and that is ... kind of a ridiculous price to spend on one single item, let alone a toy. Sigh.

Hi there! Yes quiet here as most people are keeping it as a backup. Some of the MFU comms aren't here but they plan to create an account over here. We'd hate to lose friends who didn't make it here if in the event LJ goes 'south'. I have a feeling because of their TOS, LJ is eventually going to die out. And DW will be the place to be. hopefully they can handle the load here and don't get 'glitchy' as well.

I have no problem with ads on LJ as I have my computer's ad blocker, plus a secondary one. So I hardly ever see ads when on line anywhere. it's spoiled me, to say the least.
