Ebb's Random Rambles

This journal is largely FRIENDS ONLY
however if you'd like to be added, comment on this post with the whys and wherefores.

I generally add people whom I wish to allow access to certain posts and information, not out of a sense of obligation.
Equally, please do not feel obliged to add me in return.

If you're friended, my contact details are here. If I know you well enough, you can find my address on this post here. Both of these posts are 'forward dated' and appear just below this entry if you're viewing my journal. Alternatively you can leave a message for me at my Cbox or email me at ebb[at]livejournal[dot]com.

A further explination of how this journal works and the various settings I use can be found here, which I ask that you read before adding me / commenting.

Ebb: A female goth, rather fond of red, who doesn't take life or herself too seriously, is a total drama queen, is very lucky to have an array of rather fab friends and who uses her journal as a constant reminder of both the bizarre and the mundane.

Randomness you don't need to read behind this cut... for level access read the non-cut bit! )

I shall be posting the level from now on at the top of my posts:

Because I have rather a lot of various levels which I occasionally use.
And because previous entries have been pushed and explored far more than I wanted them to be when I least expected it. It was stupid of me to allow it to happen, but I thought I could trust those who could see it. And also because not all the various friend settings show the level of a post, and a little lock is easy to miss.

I don't want to stop posting, but have kept pretty much anything important to me private since. Which isn't ideal. Nor do I want to unfriend anyone - what happens now and in the future doesn't change what has happened in the past.

So to make it clear and obivious, to use my lj "properly"*:

Public: is the only one for everyone's consumption.

Friends: denotes that there are at least smatterings of semi private bits (!).

B: a step on from friends, but generally due to precise locations or full names etc

B2: very little difference to B

C1: trusted with some details

C2: trusted with a few bits more

C3: one of a very very small group that I trust with everything I wish to be known

D's: custom group, just for you

But whatever you can see, remember - I put up the details I want to, and don't expect anyone to take liberties and ask for / search for more. Things will remain cryptic for a very good reason - if you want more detail to clarify something that's confused you, get in touch. A post may not be at all relevant to you, it's just that you belong to that level setting.

At the end of the day, this is MY journal and I won't have it abused. You are my friends, the people I know and hope I can trust. Please respect my wishes.

*as others do to a huge degree of success, point taken.

Incidentally - if comment features are removed, it's because I don't want to take it any further. I don't often do this but if I do, contact me irl. I use lj often to get through to people in a convenient way. It isn't the most ideal form of communication and it has it's drawbacks but it means people can read and take things in in their own time and own way, without being swamped by emails and can look back as often as they wish.

Just to say thank you, in no particular order, to the many wonderful icon makers out there who have shared the following icons (which took a bit of searching for, hence the post!):

Cut due to excessive Dita, not all entirely worksafe and rather heavy on the dial up! )

Feel free to visit their sites.

Sat here feeling crap. Need to have a boost. [livejournal.com profile] devalmont has supplied me with drugs and vitamin C because he's 'very worried' about me and says 'this will help get rid of any nasty bugs and help your immune system because we want you to get better by tonight so you can have a nice weekend... ' and other such sweet and boyfriendly things. I have mushroom soup, the thought of which doesn't make me heave and pain killers are slowly begining to have a vague effect.

I'm having a general purge and am about to go and have a very long soak in the bath (having not seen a deodorant or clean water since Wednesday morning), the sheets are going in the wash and admist all this cleansing goodness, I intend to dust my room in more way than one. I also intend to have a bit of an lj clear-out (inspired by the monkeys of late on [livejournal.com profile] rainbowskye's lj).

If I get rid of you and you want to be kept, just let me know. It's mainly communities I don't look at or people who have deleted journals, or those who I have little or nothing to do with either irl or online. I doubt you'll miss my inane drivel but if I'm wrong, you're welcome to stay.

Just to let you all know that, after much swearing at the laptop and a disagreement with AOL, I have now fixed the majority of my friend levels (I still need to sort some of the Cs).

I've also done some 'tag' work and will keep it up so that you can easily see all entries made under a certain friend level.

I've kept my journal according to friend groups for quite some time now (over a year) and every so often, do a shift about. I doubt most of you will notice but if there is something you can't see and you think you should be able to, please just let me know. When looking at lists of 200 people, it's easy to miss a couple off!

A further explanation of my levels is here if you're interested but if not, carry on!

Right, having a major rehaul of my flist so if you suddenly can't see any of my journal, sorry. I'm doing a bit of a sort and will let you know when it's all back to normal!
[Level - Public]

Two things to report since my last entry:

Cull - a mini one )

Secondly, levels. Regular readers ought to know by now that I have a myriad of levels covering just about every eventuality on this here, my journal. Please remember if I want it to be common knowledge, it'll go as either Public or Friends.

Anything other than Public or Friends (ie Level - B and so on) is for your information only and should be treated as privileged info, so please don't share unless you know for sure the person you're talking about it with can see it.

I've had too many problems in the past where an innocent remark has been misinterpreted, discussed and by the time its come back to me Chinese whisper style, its upset and confused lots of people when it didn't need to. If in doubt, check with me directly please. I have no qualms with removing people from level settings if they choose to ignore that. Sorry but that's the way it is.

Thirdly (yes I can count but this is slightly separate) I'd like to remind you that I'm checking lj very rarely at the moment. To that end, please link me into anything of note recently and any invites etc are best emailed to me in case I miss 'em! I'd hate to be left out. My flist is becoming rather unwieldy and despite my best efforts to catch up, I'm fighting a loosing battle so I need your help guys. Thanks in anticipation!

Just thought you'd all like to go oooh, ahhh at the new lj mood icon set, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] girlfromsouth's post here. Especially if you're a Labyrinth fan.

THIS pretty.

Oh, the Deppness.... "Swoon"

(courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] sensibility_)
Well, the unthinkable has happened - El Presidente of Goth Soc has finally relented this morning over his porridge and allowed me to sort him out an lj succumbed to the temptation of creating his own lj.

Ro says: [livejournal.com profile] holaholaamigos!!!
I intend to make this lj friends only from now on.
