Ahem! *tap tap* Is this thing on? I have a little announcement to make:
The Chocolate Mud Wyvern's journal is now (as of late September 2012) on permanent hiatus. I'm preserving my content here because I'm fond of it and I've had some amazing discussions with people over the years (though I've removed most of my lovingly-chosen icons, since you can't have 100+ icons with a free account. Sniffle. I loved those little icons.). But I haven't posted anything for a good six months (i.e. haven't given my journal the love and attention it requires) and I think it's time to make it official. It's not quite a farewell, as I'm still reading my f-list's posts and commenting here and there (you're all awesome, y'know), but as I'm unlikely to be posting here anymore, it's definitely a 'thanks for all the fish' kind of situation. ;-). Feel free to PM me if you like;  I'm also quite active with my reading on GoodReads and LibraryThing, and am sporadically active on Twitter, so you can catch me there too.

Well, I saw that coming and since I thankfully have been following your GR updates I'm not too upset - and some of your brilliant musings on manga probably would have more of an audience on GR in the first place - you could eventually import those?
I'll miss the occasional travel with your sister posts, I'm happy you're not taking everything down - and I can't cast blame anyway, because the original purpose of my LJ has always been to comment on my Friends' List (at the time I had my own wordpress blog on my own website so why should I have another blog here). The occasional real post is very much a spur of the moment thing with me.
I still read my reading list here religiously every day, but then I go to GR and read my friends posts and comments there ^^.
Enjoy yourself wherever you go and hopefully I'll get to accompany you part of the way.

Thanks! :-) I still feel a bit guilty of shutting up shop here, but you and I at least still "see" each other regularly on GR, after all - and your suggestion of importing some of my manga reviews into GR/LT is a very good one. I might make that a summer project.
