Oct. 20th, 2009 @ 03:36 pm Why hello, LJ!
It's been a while since I've bothered to log in here. Frankly the only reason I did today was because I followed a link from Twitter to someone's blog here, so I figured I may as well check in. Lo and behold, it seems that most of the people I follow here have moved on to other blogging mediums. My friends page is mostly Twitter updates. Well, if any of you are interested, here's my Twitter page. Follow at your own risk :P

Dear LiveJournal user templa_abaddon,

readysteadystop has removed you as a maintainer of the community Body Modification E-zine.

LiveJournal.com Team

Yes, that's for the best. I moved to WordPress quite a while ago, and even when I was here that community was not very active. I'd check if that's changed, but frankly I'm too lazy. Plus, I really only come here to read what's going on with a few friends.

Well, I'll be scuttling back off to WordPress now. *scuttle scuttle*

Have you ever tried a local search on the major search engines and just ended up frustrated? It can be difficult to find things like local restaurants online, especially if you live in an area that hasn't quite made its presence known online yet. Wouldn't it be great if there was an easy to use website specifically aimed at local searches?

Good news! Local.com exists solely for that purpose. Just set your location and use the search box as you would any other. Not only does the website act as local yellowpages, you can find things like driving directions, contact information, and even reviews! It's a pretty handy website.

I changed a light bulb yesterday, and as I stood on that teetering step stool to reach the globe on my ceiling fan, I started thinking about lighting and how it would be nice to get a new fixture. I've had that same stupid broken ceiling fan for way too long. I want something new! And pretty, like George Kovac's lighting. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so.

I want the kind of lighting you have to buy from a special store or online, because let's face it, you can't find this kind of stuff at the local chain stores. Selections of outdoor lighting at local stores is even worse. Farreys.com has so many lighting options it'll make your head spin. If you're on the market for lighting fixtures, go have a look.

The other day a coworker was complaining about her large mechanic bill and after the ruckus she was making, I couldn't help but ask her if her car was even worth that much. I've seen it, and frankly I think she's wasting her money fixing that thing. When your car starts needing all of this repair work done, it can be helpful if someone asks you "What is your car really worth?" She's not the first person I've watched dump money into cars that really should have just been replaced. If one is worried about spending money while trying to sell their old cars, there are plenty of places to list your car for sale for free.

And if your car's value hasn't depreciated much yet or you want to go ahead and keep repairing the old one for whatever reason, make sure you know exactly what to pay for repairs on your car in your town. Companies like DriverSide will even help you find the best mechanic. And all this information and more is available at no cost to the consumer!
