Choosing a username

I wanted Zabeth or Ysabeau for a username but they were both taken...

Ixwin was a random nickname for me suggested at one point but never actually used, so it seemed sort of appropriate for a new venture like this. I would much rather have a meaningless username, as I'd find anything descriptive far too limiting.

I'm off now to fiddle around with my Journal settings. Back soon!

Being photographed

Well, that'll do for now anyway.

Should have a user icon in the next few days, as I have been taking pictures of people in my department at work for the office intranet, so I'll send my own picture home to myself via e-mail.

It was quite amusing actually...several months ago I'd suggested that it would be a really good idea if there were photos of people accessible via the intranet, so that if you needed to go & see someone you'd been speaking to on the phone, you'd be able to find them easily, and everyone had said "yeah, that's a great idea". Then when it actually comes to taking the photos, they're suddenly a lot more reluctant...

I went through a self-conscious, hating-being-photographed phase in my teens (doesn't everyone?) but don't have a problem with it now. Still get a bit self-conscious being videoed (sp?) though.
