The account that had been sitting inactive for more than 12 years was finally purged by LJ, and I was quick enough to snap it up! I am so excited about this. I know I shouldn't be, as it's a minor victory, but it's still awesome! :D
Interestingly enough, before I checked my e-mail, I had been bitching about being stuck in a traffic jam for a couple hours due to an accident. But if I hadn't been stuck, I'd have already been in bed, and wouldn't have seen this till morning, which means I probably would have missed out on claiming the username :D
Funny how things work out that way.
Too bad that's not going to happen on Twitter, where I'm still lildobe, or with my domain, lildobe.net :(
Ah, well, can't win 'em all! :D
