Do you know me?

I got a rename token for my birthday (THANK YOU, KARI!).

You may or may not have known that I really got tired of my randomly made up nickname some years ago... never enough to do something about it, but it was still a minor constant frustration. Just a real shame kaolin remains both taken and _almost_ entirely unused. But kaolinfire is me. Me is me. Hmm. I went by "me" for a long time. So many names over the years...

I'm 30, now.


That's a pic from 2001, right around when I joined LiveJournal.

My first post:

this that and the other
a journal, eh? I've started these on paper before, once or twice, swapped from time to time, written things in the wrong places, and overall dropped them.

This is ... as much a journal as anything else, or I presume it will be, we shall see what it becomes (and if I return) -- we is me, I'll presume. I will not grasp for the ... oddly placed ... hope that someone reads these exhibitionist writings. God, I sound full of myself.

So. Why am I here? Preferably to make people think, hopefully to get folks interacting with the stuff I post, and partially just to see what happens (kinda what I live by).

To that end ... this journal will mainly be me freely associating from word to word to concept to rant to word (potentially related to a project I'm considering regarding free association).

Another reason this is here is (brain mangles) ... I think I'm trying to say too much all at once without any cohesion. Lacking cohesion is fine when you're not trying to say anything, but... oy.

right. we'll see what happens. Or I will, at least. probably.

Time has passed. I've seen things... but do I know what they are? I think I've failed on "making people think", but that sort of fell by the wayside. Who knew this would be a community? Thanks, you. :)

I'm very glad you joined LJ all those years back...it's been a real pleasure getting to know you.

And so...

*raises a glass*

...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! And here's to a good year ahead! :)

Thank you (both--just got Von's email, too) =)

Right now I'm sitting in an airport (miscommunicated times when we were planning things, so I've been sitting in an airport with my mom for three hours now). Yay for free wifi! ;) :)

I'll lift a glass as soon as I'm able (and as soon as they're under airport prices). ;)

Here's to *THE BEST* year ahead! (I can hope)

It's been a short, strange trip so far (and seems to get shorter every year).

Happy b-day. I remember 30 ... no I don't. I didn't get tramatized like my sister is insisting she will become.

I was doing a retrospect today relevant to 2001. That's when I started hosting people, now I'm retiring. Yeah for time.

I hope you had a good b-day.
Nov. 28th, 2007 02:49 am (UTC)
That was me.

Happy Birthday! :D

You can thank MySpace for the notification. haha ;)

If it weren't for LJ, I wouldn't know you at all! (or poemranker for that matter..?)

Nov. 28th, 2007 05:27 am (UTC)
Yup, Kaolin to me.

Happy birthday :)

30 eh? Jeez. How extremely cool :)

Now you are officially old enough to have kids (IMO) ;)
Nov. 29th, 2007 08:08 am (UTC)
Kids!?!?! Good thing I'm not 30 yet.

I'm part of a community?
The mind boggles.

I started several journals, you know. Maybe someday I'll figure out a way to add them into my archives -- that would be cool.

I will definitely call you tomorrow. I also thought of making you a sketching kit, but you might not need one...

Re: I'm part of a community?
Hmm. I'd think there would be a way to copy the posts... (some third party software). But not the comments. You opted out of that by starting a new journal. Well, if you win the lottery or something, they _might_ consider custom coding something. ;) Dunno. Might even be worth asking if they could use the rename code to migrate stuff for you. But that's money. Eh.

Sketching kit... no telling. I haven't opened 2/3 of my presents, no time, no time, no time.

I'm doing my best to save up money for a trip to Los Angeles. So far, I'm at zero saved, since I took out my car savings money to pay for the stupid car payment.... Grr.

But seeing you is definitely more important even than buying a Nintendo Wii. :)

Re: P.S.
But the Wii is the gift that keeps on going! Er, giving. Yes, giving. ;) :)

30? You're still young, live it up! Thanks for your insights on the LJ and all your help with Strip Fight. Without your help we couldn't have lasted this long. Hope you had a great one.
Dec. 1st, 2007 12:40 am (UTC)
My pleasure; it's great to see it is still going. Well, minus the vacation. ;) :)

Haffy Birpday!
Happy Birthday - May you have a productive, profitable and stress-free year.

/me tips glass in your general direction

Re: Haffy Birpday!
danke danke. though stress-free? my imagination isn't that good.

profitable would be lovely. Especially if GUD would turn a corner, somewhere. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and my breath held in anticipation of a big push with Issue 2.

Still hoping for a new website design soon, though that could be a month or two out--not even counting trying to implement it. :/

Would you like a pencil sketch kit that I assembled for you, or do you already have those?

And post us pictures of any robots!
Dec. 1st, 2007 12:43 am (UTC)
I have pencils, I think. And colored pencils, too (Shweta's, from way way way back when). Paper... I probably have, here and there.

Robots... when I open the bags and start putting things together.

Need to post some blinky lights I worked on with Max.

Happy birthday, and congrats on the name change :)
Dec. 1st, 2007 12:43 am (UTC)
Thanks, and thanks. :) Neither's quite sunk in yet ;)
Nov. 30th, 2007 09:40 pm (UTC)
Happy Birthday! 30's pretty good. 27-29, eh, not so much. You're better off now then I was then. ;-) Anyway--hope it was good.
Nov. 30th, 2007 09:41 pm (UTC)
Thanks :) I'll keep my fingers crossed.
