Goat Post!  
Since I'm easily amused, I have to try out 'Goat Posting' from LJ Talk. No point, just because!

Later: that was much more fun that one should think it would be :) Not sure the use of posting from chat, but fun. I haven't been entirely idle! I've written a little on 'Pines', having decided it needs to be finished before I start on the... what shall I call it? The 1840s fic. That works. The 1840s fic, having become much more involved than I ever thought, including me needing to order a book, at least one, and some other research. So, 'Pines' then '1843'. A plan of sorts.

"Goat posting"? LJ talk? You know - gmail even has gmail chat now. And I'm not with any of it. I didn't even upload AIM on my new computers since the only thing I used it for were the old Duncan Den chats.

I'm afraid I've never been into the talk aspect. Mostly because my time is so sporatic and I don't want to seem rude when I have to say "I can't talk" because I have to go or need to go to bed so I can work that night. People don't seem to understand sometimes when you can't start new conversations. And they feel rejected when that's not the case at all. LJ works well because you can have a comment conversation, and it's one that you can come back to and continue later if need be.

And the worst thing here - when I saw goat - I thought of Byron and Methos' goat. And I was going - huh?

I call it 'goat posting', but that's just because I'm odd. But you knew that. Back in the mists of time, when I first got online, I spent half my life on IRC. Is how I met Nin actually. But I've never gotten into chat programs, and hadn't opened one in years. Now that Nin works till 3am and I'm home alone, I've started chatting again. But I'm not a good chatter because I feel guilty if I don't reply to everyone and keep up :)

LOL! Well, that's pretty much what I was thinking of too!
