mellicious: pink manicure (ST - bones)
[personal profile] mellicious
It's December 1st. How is it December 1st already? I am so not ready for Christmas.

I have been playing Diablo 3 (and watching football out of the corner of my eye) for a big chunk of the day. It's not really what I meant to be doing today, but, well, I seem to be a tad obsessed, for some reason. It's funny, because I put off even trying this game until what, a couple of months ago? Anyway, I'm sure you guys will be hearing more about that later, but that's not really what I want to talk about right now.

I know you're supposed to introduce yourself on the first day of Holidailies, but I'm never very comfortable doing that. I never know what to say. So instead maybe I'll tell you about where else you can find me online. Except that I don't link to my Facebook from here, which means I can't tell you where my Pinterest is, either, since it's linked to my Facebook account. Sorry about that. The line between my real name and my other online identities gets thinner and thinner, and you might could find a thread to follow if you were determined to, but you'd have to be willing to work at it, at least, and I can't bring myself to let those links go back and forth openly. My Facebook is deliberately boring, anyway - really all I do there is talk to my cousins and wish people happy birthday and play games. The usual stuff. And you know, well, Pinterest is Pinterest. Either you love it or you don't, and I suspect most of you either go there already or wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole.

Okay, so anyway, none of that is what I started out to say. My biggest online presence nowadays is my nail blog, I guess, which is Delicious Color. That name started out as sort of a pun on Mellicious, which is a silly pun to begin with, and is the name I use online when I don't use Mellificent (likewise, another pun) - actually I go more or less randomly back and forth between them, depending on which one is already taken on any given website. When I was making jewelry, I had the blog Delicious Beads (which is still out there on Blogspot, too, I'm just too lazy to link it) - and when I decided to make a blog to try to keep up with what I was wearing on my nails, I remembered that I had also made a blog called "Delicious Color" just in case I wanted a more sort of generic name some day, and it seemed fairly apropos to nails, so I've been using that to talk about my nails for the last year or so. Some of the same people who are likely to be reading here also read there, but it's never been my intent to go for a big readership. It just gives me an outlet for that little obsession.

Other places I can be found: Twitter, as @mellicious (which is full of talk about Diablo and my nails); Tumblr, as Mellificent (mostly fandom-related & other random crap); Instagram as Mallificent (not much there). I'm still Mellicious on Flickr, too, although I don't post much there any more. (The 10 zillion quilt pictures are still there, though.)

And here I am, posting a comment from a LJ account I've pretty much abandoned--to the point where my logging into it prompted LJ to block me because that very act was suspicious. I was again tempted this year to sign up for Holidailies with my nail blog, because Lord knows I have the content there, but it's a tradition with my old school journal so that's what I went with.

I had to do the unblocking thing a couple of weeks ago, too - which made me even more tempted to use the nail blog. But I got it unblocked, so I too decided to stay with tradition!
