Too Many Interests Time Again
My livejournal profile was horribly outdated again. Time to adjust my interests. Bloody hell, I had a lot to change - stuff on there that should have been removed 4 years ago, and other stuff that I should have added 4 years ago.

Removed:
80s music
Amplitude - still love the game, but haven't played it in years.
Atmospheric science - I ran away from this field of work and back to medicinal chemistry. Yay.
Dance Dance Revolution - ditto.
Frequency - ditto!
Irritable bowel syndrome - not one of my current diagnoses, I went vegan and it went away.
Laurell K. Hamilton - her books are trash. I know they're trash. I read them because they're trash, but if I leave her in my interests people might think that I think they're good ;)
Lesbian erotica - who the hell am I kidding? Last time I read and enjoyed a lesbian story was... years ago. I'm way too gender dysphoric to be interested in women doing women right now. Men doing men ALL THE WAY.
Mega City Four - removing them was actually agonising: one of my favourite bands when I was a teenager and actually one of the reasons I'm still alive; but I haven't listened to them in years.
Noodles - I like noodles, but I'm not sure if they need to take up a space on my interests list.
Playstations - have not used one in months.
Sims 2 hacking - have forgotten everything I ever knew about it ;D
Spiky haired boys - I like them, but they're not my main focus.
Venus Envy - this webcomic is deader than the dodo.

Added:
Elder Scrolls - the game series that has eaten my life.
Oblivion - Elder Scrolls IV
Skyrim - Elder Scrolls V
Martin Septim - OH GODS I LOVE THIS MAN. Character. Whatever.
Xbox 360 - what I play my Elder Scrolls games on.
Rock Band - the rhythm action game I'm playing now instead of Frequency & Amplitude, go Harmonix!
Eureka Machines - awesome pop-punk band.
Ginger Wildheart - my favourite artist in teh world (typo intentional).
Wolfsbane - another long-term favourite band.
Terry Pratchett - the only reason he wasn't on there was lack of space.
South Indian food - to go with the Chinese and Japanese.
Chronic fatigue syndrome - because, oops.
Long hair and beards - om nom nom.
Men who do men - no surprise for anyone who's ever met me ;D
Bears - both the large omnivorous mammals and the big hairy gay men :D

Also, there is an actual description of me in the big box that previously said "This profile intentionally left blank", so if you've recently friended me (and I know I've gained 3 new LJ friends in the past couple of weeks), you should probably go and read it. Just to make sure that you don't suddenly hate me or something :D

Any comments or questions? I doubt any of you care that much, but feel free to ask if you do.

Gosh about the Sims2 - you used to do lots of that.

I've not used it, but I registered a domain for talking about things I used to know: the intricate details of CP/M was one...

Yeah, I know... Can't remember when I stopped playing Sims 2. I know it was about the point when my poor PC laptop could no longer manage any more expansion packs. It struggled with Pets and there was no way it would cope with Seasons, and I got frustrated with everyone talking about content I couldn't access...

I have Sims 3 for the Mac, and while it's better in a lot of ways than Sims 2, it's also lost a lot of the charm and humour. I can't really explain why.

Now I am playing Elder Scrolls games, and writing porn about characters in the Elder Scrolls universe. Really explicit porn, not like the cute and fairly chaste stories I wrote about sims! I don't know where this has come from, but there are gay boys living in my head, and they keep shagging, and I have to keep writing it down.

Noodles - I like noodles, but I'm not sure if they need to take up a space on my interests list. I laughed. I'm sure my interests are terribly out of date too, but every time I look at them my mind goes completely blank and I wonder if I have any interests at all.

*reads profile* Another poly person! High five. I have two partners as well.

Um, yeah. 90% of the people I know are bi or poly or both. That's normal for round here ;)

Also, something like 66% of the people I know have a chronic health condition, and 75% of those have periods of mental illness.

It amuses me to take "ditto!" to mean "what the previous line said", in which case the explanation for "Dance Dance Revolution" is "I ran away from this field of work and back to medical chemistry. Yay."

Oh, lol. I alphabetised the list and missed that those three games weren't next to each other any more ;D
