As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:
"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."
So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.
Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

I would probably invite him in and have a drink. I fell for him hard the summer I was in 8th grade. He was older and had a car. His grandparents lived in the same neighborhood as me. We hung out a lot. We clicked and had fun. We joked around, but we also fought. I remember one particular fight where we were in the middle of the street yelling at each other. He got in his car and sped off. He didn't come back for three whole day, which in teenage terms, is an eternity. We had great conversations. He sang "I'd Die Without You" (by PM Dawn) to me. He grabbed my arm while he was in his car because I had hit him for something he said. He started driving with me in tow. It wasn't fast and I probably learned a lesson of sorts. When it came time for him to graduate, he told me that he couldn't date me because I would probably leave and we would have to break up. He is a pharmacist now, which is what he always wanted to do. I wish him the best, but I'm glad that I wound up with Spart!
