So....anyone out there still?  Life sure sucks without the convenience of alerts.  Bloglines is pretty cool, and I'm adding journal sites gradually.  I still miss all the alerts in my box.

Purgables:

Harry Potter rocked.  The best one yet, I reckon.  Go see it.

Em's having some pretty intense oral surgery tomorrow at 4:30, positive vibes appreciated.  I know its only dentistry, but its being done by a specialist and she's going under general anesthesia, and I'm a mom. 

I lost another 2 lbs, so I'm down 48 lbs to date (give or take).  Found the first "little black dress" I've been able to pull off in 9 years - a whopping 5 sizes smaller than a year ago, and actually got a LOT of positive response from that.  The best thing is that I got LBD for under $50.  Booyah!

AOL gets an official boogerflick for their lamebutt attempt at appeasement, coming in the form of a disclaimer they'll add to the top of our journals.  Apparently this disclaimer will say we in no way endorse the flashing obnoxious advertisements at the top of our journal space.  Clue:  not only do we not endorse, but we'll never click and we'll never purchase from any of the advertisers.  As soon as I see them up there, they go on "the list" of those I'll never buy from.  Sorry, y'all will have to do better than that. 

!!Please don't click the ads at the top of my journal page!!

I think the furor's dying down a bit now that everyone's GONE ... I just hate this silence.  Hate.  It.  Send me your links!!

I agree. I still haven't figured out how to get alerts for new entries without visiting all of the journals one by one.
I am keeping the AOL Cafe open but private. I wrote an entry about it.

Hi Kris,
I am still here. I decided to come back to AOL Journals. That is great that you have lost 48 pounds. You go girl.
Love,

WTG on the weight loss!
I bet you were hot in that little black dress.
I don't have a little black dress....more like a little black tent.
GAH....need to get back on the bandwagon.

Kudos to you though. Keep it up!

Hi Kris,  Congrats on the LBD!  Keep up the good work and glad you did not leave AOL!  I am simply ignoring the flashing lights at the top of my journal--it's pretty easy to do, no?

I'm still here in this ghost town... I can't boycott, not enough fight in me, I suppose.

Sending good vibes your way for the dentist visit.

Saw Harry Potter...it was fantabulous just like the others!

Way to go on that weight loss! It's not easy, I know... so a very enthusiastic congrats to you!
