Achievement unlocked: Candidacy

I am so very behind on posting new entries right now. Life is happening too fast and work deadlines have suddenly appeared and are making alarming whooshing sounds.

However, I wanted to note that this week, I have passed a new milestone in political activism: I have become a candidate for the local council elections in the UK. I only did it because the organiser of my local party was very persistent, and I do not expect to win or even come second, as I won't be doing any campaigning. But it was still a big deal for me to put myself out there, to fill out the paperwork and get the necessary constituent signatures (TBF, aforementioned local party doyenne got most of the signatures), even if it's just to be a paper candidate. So. Er. Go me?

The 2017 DW Revival is alive

Friends who are jumping ship from LJ to DW may find the 2017 DW Revival community useful: [community profile] 2017revival.

I've also started a list there for people who wish to link their LJ and DW identities, so that old LJ friends can find them when they migrate to DW. That's here: Linking LJ and DW identities. Please comment on that post and I'll add you to the list.
