brenna26 stopped by yesterday in the middle of her mad driving tour of most of western Europe. So nice to see her, and she doesn't update her journal so I was behind on what's going on in her life.

We walked to Wandlebury, about 5 or 6 miles round trip by the time we'd wandered around the hilltop. It was the most gorgeous spring day ever, everything in blossom and in bud, and loads of birds around. *bounce* It's good to get away from the computer screen and out into the countryside. We even had to climb a couple of fences and crawl through hedges to avoid taking ridiculous long ways round.

brenna26 also made a very good impression on my parents and they both told her loads of legal stories and generally babbled at her. Yay.

This morning darcydodo phoned; she's being hermitty and ignoring LJ to concentrate on work. So it's particularly good to hear from her. It turns out she's been hearing my major life news from linley, which is a bad thing (though thank you for passing that on, linley). I should remember to contact her directly if she's not watching LJ! Anyway it was a good time to phone since she knows brenna26 from roleplaying connections anyway.

According to one particular metric at least, pseudomonas is one of the 10 most popular users on LJ!

My god! My first thought is that it's impossible -- some celebrities have journals with massive followings. Then I realised:


10000 people have linked to the "is love" meme! I didn't think it was going to be that popular. OK, now I believe. And am seriously impressed.

That meme is really quite amazing. And I'm sure 10,000 people is an underestimate, because a lot of people have friends-only journals or anti-spider settings, so Google just doesn't see most of LJ.

Current stats are that images have been generated for 241465 users (most of which will have been viewing it on their friendspages, so will have had their banners generated even if they didn't want them). There have been somewhere well over 7 million image views.
