LJ has announced a permanent acconut sale! The comment threads are full of win already, and there aren't even any cat macros yet. If you have cash on hand I recommend chucking a few dollars toward their chosen charities (or similar) without bothering to buy the account - or head over to fandom_gives, since fandom did it first. And better!
Also, most of what I've been doing around here lately is tossing comments in, so of course I've lost comment e-mail notifications. If it seems like I'm ignoring you it's either that, or the fact that I'm doing my best to work this summer *hard*, since it may be my last one.
