I have been using OpenID in order to comment on LJ communities as I don't want to have an LJ account for obvious reasons.
I used to be able to log in just fine and post comments and create posts etc. But I recently got a new computer and went to log in and comment and it told me I needed to validate my email address. So I clicked through to a link and then clicked the link that was in the email that LiveJournal sent to my email address.
When I click this link in the validation email, it takes me to a page titled:
"Please, verify that you are human"
When you submit the form an invisible reCAPTCHA check will be performed.
Then there's a continue button to click on. I click the page and it looks like it's doing something, but it takes me back to the same page again and I remain unverified and now unable to comment or post on any communities.
Any ideas as to how I can get LJ to actually verify the email address for my OpenID account? Thanks!
So I don’t why, but I hate making the choice to bail on something because I’m sick (doesn’t apply to work anymore; I have to do my job no matter how sick I am. But you know, other things). To be clear, the bailing part I’m okay with; being the one to verbalize it makes me feel guilty though, even if I know I’d be better off resting.
Therefore I tend to go to whatever event it is that I don’t feel up for and then just trying to project how crappy I feel. To be as stoically and visibly miserable as I can, in the hopes that someone else will say “Oh you poor thing, you shouldn’t be here! Go home and rest!”
Perhaps its residual guilt from the many times I faked being sick to stay home from school, but I always just feel better when someone else has verified my illness. When I know they know I’m really sick. Because then I’m at home with the comfort of that second opinion: “Nope, even they said I should stay home and rest.” It’s like I don’t trust my own brain to make that diagnosis alone, because maybe somewhere deep down its just plotting excuses for us to stay in bed.
This is one of those books that I went back-and-forth on even put to the list of books to rent from booklender.com, much less actually putting it in my "impending" books list at the site. I kind of regret it.
It feels like it's two different books. One is about a former teen pop star that got dropped from her label after wanting to sing her own, more serous, songs instead of the "bubblegum pop" stuff they wanted. Then her mom ran off to Argentina with her manager and all of her money. Followed by her finding her fiancee (in a boy band at the same label) cheating with the latest (20-something) pop sensation. Because she has no money she has to move in with her ex's brother (who's the black sheep of the family) & take a job as an assistant director at a college dorm.
The other is a murder mystery of the "cozy" kind. I prefer cozy mysteries (where they don't go into gory detail & are light on sex & violence) but this one was kind of "fluffy" except for a knock-down-drag-out fight at the end.
Also at times if felt like it was trying to be a third book about how being a size 12 is not fat & is the size of the average American woman, you know. And if you don't know, you should.
Over all I had a hard time getting though it & would've quit it, but I wanted to see who did it & why. Seriously doubt I will be reading the others in the series.
