some percentage of caught up on LJ

I created a new custom friends group to be able to focus in on the actual people instead of the feeds and communities mixed in, which are less time-dependant. I just got back to where I recognized I had read prior to being offline for a week. It was 320 entries in that custom group. Y'all are prolific.

This doesn't mean I'm caught up, mind you. I started reading LJ again on Wednesday or Thursday. That means I have three or four days worth of stuff to catch up on again, since I didn't try to keep up on current postings. I suspect this post will be a recursive post, somewhat like Xeno's Paradox translated to LJ. I think once I'm done there, I'll compose another post about Dad, perhaps with lordfool's input. Or not.

And now, the usual disclaimer: if you expected me to comment on something specific and I did not, give me a link to the post. If there was something in particular you expected me to see non-LJ, give me a link to that as well. Giving me tsuris is entirely expected. Have fun.

EDIT: 6:50pm
I only had to go 100 entries back to find where I'd left off. With that in mind, I should only have to go 20 or 40 back to be fully caught up on people. I don't know where I'm at with feeds or communities. *le sigh*

LJ already has that option:

There's also C (communities), N (news), and Y (feeds), in case you want to check those after you've caught up on people. They can also be combined:

Shouldn't you be psychic or something?
Telling me this before I made the new custom group would have been helpful. Note to self: Noogie Arthur.
Second note to self: have Jim noogie Arthur. That should encourage forethought on Arthur's part.
Third note to self: remember to thank Arthur, but only after noogies are applied...

It's not too late to delete the custom group because, as I've discovered, there is a limit to how many of those custom groups you're allowed to define.

And I'll take noogies over pummelings any time...

Re: Shouldn't you be psychic or something?
I'll certainly delete some custom groups if I remember to use the linkage you've listed. I haven't run out of them, so it's not a crisis yet.

Both noogies and pummelings beat orbital death ray...

Since you are the one who can get out, you and I need to arrange for you to come get my exersaucer and jumperoo. (They are too big for my car)

Sounds like a plan. Hopefully we have at least a month to arrange a visit.
