Got this from [livejournal.com profile] angel_kink

How did you come to start your LJ?
This LJ in particular? RP originally. LJ in general? RP. Ironic that.

How did you find your first friends?
RP and fanfic.

Are those first friends still on your FL?
My first journal, no. This journal... possibly.

How long have you been on LJ?
Since around 2003. I know they still had joining codes at the time I made [livejournal.com profile] majinbakahentai.

Do you have more friends or communities on your FL?
Communities, but I don't actively watch most of them - I keep them segregated in flist filters and some filters I haven't looked at in years.

Do you do a lot of friends cuts?
Ehh, not really. I cut if I'm posting pictures or if I write a really long post.

What do you like in an LJ friend?
Friendly, chatty, talking about Fandom, talking about pets.

What do you dislike in an LJ friend?
Rabid hate, shipping nazis.

What would make you un-friend someone immediately?
Rabid hate, shipping nazis, blatant bigotry. I don't un-friend much though.

Have you been caught up in a lot of LJ drama?
Not really, I manage to keep out of the way of most drama, though I've had a few minor incidents that related to RPs I was in.

Do real-life friends and family members know you have a journal on LJ?
Mum is aware I have one. Grey might be aware since he's aware of my FFN profile.

Do you also have Facebook and if so, what do you prefer – LJ or FB?
No, no Facebook.

What about Twitter?
Yes, Twitter. Most of my posting for most of the past year has been daily Twitter feed. It's a lot easier to post random small observations there - I don't feel beholden to put more in to fill out a post.

Do you blog on any other sites?
I occasionally post updates on dA, but try to keep it relevant to my art interests. Once in a blue moon I'll update on the Sims 3 site, usually about recent things to do with my S3 game.

How often do you check in on LJ?
At least once a day, more if my attention isn't taken by something else (like right know I am rabidly consuming the Hobbit kink meme to the exclusion of all else).

What do you rarely or never post about?
RL romance.

Why don't you post about that?
It doesn't exist for me.

Have you ever thought about deleting your journal?
NO!

Have you ever changed your username?
Not in the sense of buying a name change token, but I did change every-day journals. My old journal is still there, but barring a recent post saying that I've gotten into the Hobbit fandom, it's left unused.

Why did you choose your current username?
Mimi Fish is a character I've had for years, and for some reason I decided to let her venture onto the RP scene. Then events conspired to make me shift fandom using this journal as my main ID and... *shrug*.

If you're looking for new friends, how do you find them?
Hang out on fanfic and discussion comms.

Are you taking new people on to your Friends List just now?
I don't immediately friend back if someone randomly friends me, but if I recognise them from fandom comms I'm far more likely to friend back.

Finally, tell us the reasons why you keep an online journal.
Fanfic, fandom socialisation, somewhere to air my thoughts.

Errm... I think I'm slightly behind on these.

Day 04 – What you ate today

Err... a lot of junk. Really.

Right after I got home on Friday from doing the groccery shopping I realised the dishwashing liquid was low. Yesterday I got up really crappily late, and the supermarkets close early on Saturdays, so I didn't bother doing anything about it, so today I went to the shops to get some more.

I came back with a whole stack of junkfood.

Chips, Butter Menthols (candy), beef jerky, Twisties, instant noddles... and yes, I did get the dishwashing liquid.

I also have in the fridge some cooked chicken, and some cooked corned beef (as in, home cooked), and have been nibbling on that as well as the other stuff most of the day.
I also made up a jug of berry tea that has turned out waaaaaay too strong.

This is what being home alone does - I eat a lot of total crap.

Day 02 – Your first love

Hmm... What would it be? I was considering citing unicorns, but they didn't come up until I was 8, I was going to mention Astro Boy, but something else came to my notice... LEGO!

Yes, the classic bricks. Why them? Well I can recall my brothers having Lego at least as far back as when I was 5 or 6, which puts it out in front of both unicorns or TV shows.

I first got fascinated by Lego for the simple reason that it was my brother's toy, therefore interesting. I didn't start getting my own until xmas of '87 - when I was 9. That xmas was spent in Sydney, visiting my Dad, and at some point we were around at some shops and I found the local toy store... and begged a couple of small Lego ships.

I should mention, Grey - my brother that had the significant Lego collection - collected space Lego, so I started off with space Lego too.

At the time I got my first two sets, it was just after the release of the Lego men with flip-visor helmets. If you got looking at old Lego, the early helmets were basically buckets that fit over Lego heads with a hole for the face. Then they introduced helmets that had flip visors. Grey had quite a bit of the early visorless helmets but I got in just after the flip ones.

Anyway, being as the flip helms were new, even Noddy and Grey wanted some, so some time during that holiday a pack of Lego men was bought and split between us - I took the red and blue ones, Grey took the black and yellow, and Noddy wanted the two Blacktron (space pirates). That worked fine with me because my two ships? The men with them were a yellow one and a black one, so getting red and blue expanded the range.

Those first four Lego men got named Sue, for the red, Tom for the blue, Sarah for the black, and Jerry for the yellow.

I collected more over the years after, slowly at first, because I was only working on what Mum could get me, then in my teens when I got control of my own money, I started getting more. There were the occasional non-space sets, but it was mostly space Lego.

I mentioned at the start I'd considered mentioning unicorns? Well over the years I invented stories in my head about unicorn characters, and somewhere along the line I got the bright idea of crossing my then-favourite, Caroline Task, into my Lego collection, dubbing one of the men in my first big space police set (second wave space police, black, grey, red and clear green - probably from around '89-90) as Carol.

The storyline about my Lego men that plodded along, only taking leaps as I got new sets went a bit wild from that point on, as Carol got romantic with Jerry, and he went through the dismay of discovering she was magical (let's just say he had prior experience with magic and was unimpressed by it).

I Kept collecting Lego until the first Star Wars lego range came out, and while I got a couple of sets (two sets of Anikin's pod racer (mostly because I wanted Padmé's hair), I soon lost interest in collecting all together because the space Lego got subsumed by Star Wars, and by that time I was probably online and my time was being taken up by reading.


So what reminded me of all this? With Mum away for the moment, I have the freedom of leaving my Lego out, all over the floor, for as long as it takes to construct it all. I was idly contemplating my partially constructed Insectoid ship when it occurred to me my fascination for Lego predates most of everything else.

There are a few sets that I have lost the instructions to, and given the amount of time since I last constructed them, I am having trouble recalling them properly, but at least most of them are the small sets. I still can't quite recall the Spyrius flying saucers' details, and I don't know how well I'll go when I get onto Josh's ship (my Blacktron Commander) but I am having better luck recalling it than the rest of the Spyrius saucers.

"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" Ship:
Magnus/Tracks - read it once, it peeved me.

Guilty Pleasure Ship:
Primus/Optimus... not that I really feel guilty about it.
Vector/Optimus - read it once, recently, courtesy of the Borealis series. I WANT MORE!

"I dabble a little" Ship:
Megatron/Optimus, Optimus/Starscream, Megatron/Starscream, Starscream/Soundwave.
Jazz/Prowl - but it's more like "I dabble a lot because it's so common".
Oh, and Optimus/Sam.

"It's like a car crash" Ship:
Optimus/Soundwave... but only because of one fic which is like a car crash to my OTP.

"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship:
Ratchet/Wheeljack - I don't know, I like it better than Ratchet/Ironhide but I am not totally taken by it.

"Makes no canon sense but why the hell not" Ship:
I'm not sure I have one. Anything that comes along that isn't violent sex?

"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship:
Ratchet/Ironhide - Two grumpy mechs together... nah. Just never really got it.

"When all is said and done" Ship:
Optimus and Magnus
Optimus/Magnus - always and forever.
