LiveJournal auto-post

The mornings are hazed with lingering fog. Sometimes it rains, an irregular, light drizzle. Sometimes the sky is still pinked with dawn overstaying its time, and contrails feather its expanse. Nearby, a fox darts through the trees, a rabbit corpse dangling from its jaw, all in vivid color. A meadow opens up, and a herd of small black-feathered birds dart in jerky steps across the grass, always, always heading southwards.

The road curves into a long straightaway, and here are the major ways I kept track of books more or less likely to publish in the hopes of getting tickets to some of the most unexpected.

Chicory and endive mean the exact opposite of each other in seven years! We chatted over lunch - only a token meal for those of us who'd effectively killed our appetites not two hours earlier - and then discover that the reason nothing was happening with my client was because all events were showing up very discreetly and in such a very correct context, that I had no answer on the hair front, but I was the first stop on her first "world tour", starting in Toronto, going to A-kon in Texas, and then back to Japan for a more extensive review of it here.

Okay, I'll bite. To you, I'll admit that I have no idea where this "auto-post" thing is coming from, but obviously there's something to it. So what is it??? I can't find "auto-post" anywhere, yet obviously you and others on my flist know what it is... I feel so left out!!! Please, tell me!

It was announced in lj_releases as a new "feature" on the site. It's a "one button post" - so one button that you have to post the post in order to find out what it says.

I really liked the way my first version turned out.

LOL! i saw this last night and thought "hmmm, she's a bit strange... maybe it's the start of the academic year". Wasn't until someone on my flist posted *three* of them that i realised what was going on!

I'm very glad that working with students doesn't make me this incoherent!

see, next time students have turned your brain to mush with their general incompetence, all you need to do is come back and look at this entry and think "it could be worse". and that could apply to either your coherency or their essays.
