1. Happy birthday to [personal profile] lost_spook!

2. [ profile] whatwasthatbook is closing, over on Livejournal.

I truly hope they end up on Dreamwidth, with all posts imported. Just in case they don’t? I’ll be going through all the tags and jotting down particular found books that I’m interested in locating, just in case they delete the group.

It’s one of the few (well, that still had posts coming in) I was really still keeping track of on Livejournal these days.

3. Moments before composing this entry, I also heard that Timothy Omundson suffered a stroke while at Tampa Airport. So best wishes go out to him. He was one of my favorite parts of Galavant (I didn’t watch much of Psych, but when I did I loved him there).

If you're reading this on the Dreamwidth side, you'll see I added an icon of King Richard from Galavant, since I was strangely lacking in related icons.
