Seriously a heavy load LJ?!! Denial of Service attacks are one thing but this - so not cool!
This latest series of LJ greyouts have pushed me over the fence about having a blog-not-on-lj so voila - Jennylafleur @ Blogspot (http://chezjennylafleur.blogspot.com)
For now I'll be simply cross-posting my public LJ entries over there. I may put slightly different content on the two blogs from time to time, we'll see. As my favorite LJ will get updated first though. Unless it's down. Again. *grinds teeth*
