(no subject) [Jul. 6th, 2012|05:04 pm]
PFC Joke
This is an edited version of something I posted on Facebook. I usually try to avoid posting the same content all around the internet, because it's annoying for people who are keeping up in multiple places and people who aren't probably aren't that interested, but I want to actually communicate this to as many people as possible.

So, the news.

I have changed my name. I've been going by Morgan for some time now and last week I did the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages thing. Got a new birth certificate and everything. So it's about time I was a bit more announcement-y about it, I suppose.

In brief, the reason for the change: during the long and convoluted process of figuring out how gender stuff works for me, I concluded that I feel far happier and more comfortable with a gender-neutral name.

The best label I've found for myself, gender-identity-wise, is 'agender'.

This often raises the question of what pronouns I prefer, and the answer is … from a selection of poor options, I prefer 'they' (and no, it's not gramatically incorrect to use it in the singular). I don't have a particular objection to other pronouns but it stings a bit when people know my preference but ignore it.

I'm happy to discuss this with anyone who has questions or whatever, but I'd prefer to do it in a more private medium so comments on this entry are screened. However, this is not in any way a secret or a delicate matter, and I'm perfectly happy for you to update people I'm less in touch with if the subject comes up, either by pointing them here or just by telling them about it.

Thanks for reading.

(If we're Facebook friends but you didn't see the note there, it's because I filtered that one to people who knew me by my old name but whom I hadn't actually told; I didn't want to complicate matters with people who have met me more recently, but I figure anyone who bothers to read my Livejournal must be pretty old-school.)

More free stuff! (DVDs) [Oct. 30th, 2010|11:18 am]

I briefly considered crossposting this to Facebook. Then I remembered that Facebook is still even more gross than Livejournal. Besides, this way I can pretend I'm being oldschool and/or elitist about this whole giving away stuff for free thing.

Today these DVDs are looking for good homes! Almost all of them are anime left behind by SuperHousemate's last housemate.
  • Vampire Princess Miyu Collection (6 discs)
  • The Slayers (Complete first series; episodes 1-26, 4 discs)
  • The Slayers Next (Episodes 27-52, 4 discs)
  • Record of Lodoss War (Complete series; episodes 1-13, 2 discs)
  • Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight (Complete series; epsiodes 1-27, 4 discs)
  • Maze (4 discs)
  • Spiral: The Bonds of Reasoning (Complete series; episodes 1-25, 3 discs)
  • RG Veda (which appears to be a movie)
  • Four separate Rurouni Kenshin discs: The Legendary Swordsman, Battle in the Moonlight, Trust, and Betrayal
And two DVDs that aren't anime:
  • Mulholland Drive
  • Live Forever: The Rise and Fall of Brit Pop
Once again, pickup from Kew is preferable, but other arrangements are possible.

Free stuff! (games and consoles) [Oct. 27th, 2010|03:28 pm]

Hello, Livejournal. Long time no speak.

My SuperHousemate and I have several boxes of stuff to give away. There will be more posts like this in the future with other types of stuff, but today is the day for giving away old games and things of that nature.

Ideally you'll be able to come to pick stuff up from our place in Kew, but other arrangements are possible too. It would also be neat if anybody taking a console also took away all its games. I would offer a discount as an incentive, but all this stuff is already free. :)

HardwareCollapse )

Playstation One gamesCollapse )

PS2 gamesCollapse )
Gamecube gamesCollapse )
PC gamesCollapse )
Board games and card gamesCollapse )

If you know anyone who is likely to want this stuff, even if it's not you, I encourage you to encourage them to contact me.

See you when I try to offload the next batch of stuff, LJ.

Free Stuff [Nov. 29th, 2009|11:17 am]

[hearing |Slowdive - Good Day Sunshine]

I've finally started going through my pile of boxes of "stuff I probably don't want anymore", and here is the first in what will probably be a series of Free Stuff Giveaways. Comment to claim any of the stuff listed. It can be picked up from Thornbury or I can transport it to somewhere central; in the unlikely event that someone not from Melbourne wants something enough to pay postage for it, that's an option too.

I'll wait a week or so and then any remaining stuff will probably get freecycled or donated to op shops or something.

A few of these items were gifts once upon a time, and to the givers I say: please don't be hurt or offended! I only want to keep things I will read/use/enjoy again and again, but I have liked and appreciated many things that that no longer applies to.

here be bootyCollapse )

#4: Ithaca [May. 25th, 2006|01:29 pm]
PFC Joke
[Tags|, ]

People often wondered why Ithaca had such a strange name, but nobody asked her about it until she was ten. Perhaps they thought that nine years old was too young to know about your own name.

"Ithaca. That's an unusual name," said her new teacher. "Where does it come from?"

"I don't know," said Ithaca. "It's just my name."

That evening Ithaca asked her parents about where her name came from. They looked at each other blankly.

"I don't know," said her father.

"It's just your name," said her mother.

It was at about this time that Ithaca began to suspect she was actually a space alien who had robots instead of parents.
