Wow. This is the first time I've seen someone use "lulz" or "yawn-tastic" in an LJ post in a couple of years. Most of my friends who still post here, which are admittedly very few, tend to write pretty thoughtful posts. Then again, I have surprisingly little time for the nonthoughtful stuff anymore. I filter out most of it, particularly on Facebook. Most days over there when I'm working I only come up with a status once a day and I rarely post here now. I tend to avoid drama on Facebook, though, since it's a professional tool as well. It's getting to the point where even in govvie-land, someone who isn't Facebook or LinkedIn-friendly won't get an interview beyond an entry-level position. LJ is almost a detriment if it's tied to a real life name.
As far as the elections go? What elections?
