Sheer Giddy Joy and Euphoria

The purpose of this post is twofold.

Point one (1): I have a new fandom journal for all non-Harry Potter fandom. It is miss_odalisque. There is only nude Kevin Jonas fanart on it at the moment (Um, NOT my own), but there will eventually be more. If you are a wizard friend, and value your sanity, STAY HERE. I will kick you links to any Star Trek action happening over there. Spare yourself the naked Jonaii.

Point two (2): I just got my computer tower back after EIGHT DAYS without it. While I was happy before going online on my phone, I cannot even begin to relate the horror that is the continual thought of "Oh, I'll look it up tonight" and then realising you can't. With like, java-heavy sites and whatnot. UNGHFDJNSFBDS. It was horrendous. I couldn't book train tickets, I couldn't shop on Amazon (I KNOW. IT WAS THE WORST THING.) My battery died because I had to look at porn on my phone. ON MY PHONE. (I'm mostly kidding. I didn't watch porn. I read a LOT of fanfic, though.)

Anyway, so I am GIDDY and EUPHORIC at the amazing wonder of NORMAL INTERNET BROWSING again. I can do ONLINE BANKING, for Pete's sake. It's incredible. I feel so spoilt. I think I did very well to keep my whining to a minimum. Especially since my cousin said it would be ready "On Monday or Tuesday" and then "Saturday night/Sunday morning" and eventually my dad had to drive round there tonight and get it off him. I mean REALLY.

...I sound like such an addict. And that's WITH regular access to Twitter, Facebook, and Gmail. If it wasn't for the fact that I worked out how to add my 'formal' email account to my crappy gmail app on my kind-of-rubbish phone, I would have been going crazy wondering if I had had any responses to my job applications. Which, sadly, I have not. BUT I COULD HAVE HAD.

...Urgh. I'm crazy. I think I just missed being able to browse at will. Everything's so much more difficult on my phone. But now I'm back. Maybe I'll get around to updating more often!! I am writing down summaries and ratings of most of the fics I've been reading so I'm going to make a rec list at some point on my new journal, and it's going to be AWESOME.

That is all.



NATO takes over command of military operations in Libya

[b]NATO is taking over command of military operations in Libya from coalition forces, world media reported Sunday.[/b]

The UN Security Council imposed the no-fly zone over Libya on March 17, along with ordering "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on rebel-held towns.

The 28 NATO ambassadors met on Sunday to decide on further military plans in Libya.

The United States transfers command for a no-fly zone over Libya to NATO, while coalition forces will continue to protect civilian population from attacks by Gaddafi forces.

The military operation in Libya, codenamed Odyssey Dawn, has been conducted so far jointly by 13 states, including the United States, Britain and France.

NATO members decided on Thursday to assume responsibility for the enforcement of a no-fly zone in Libya, but could not agree on taking full command of all military operations in the country.

Meanwhile, leaders of the 27 European Union states on Thursday issued a statement saying the EU stood ready to assist in building a new Libya "in cooperation with the United Nations, the Arab League, the African Union and others."
