What you got? Dialup? seriously, is 3 medium pics?
Before I wish you well, and I do sincerely, how would you feel if every meme you posted someone felt they had to bring you down? Of all the pointless content I've posted, this is an actual important moment in my real life, which is why it was kind of hurtful to hear that compared to everything fake you see online it was so taxing to scroll past it that you felt compelled to instruct me to protect others from it immediately.
I make it clear in my lj info that photos are a big part of the content of my journal and I consider my online manners to be pretty standard, and I don't post pages of uncut photos nor do I try to police the internet, especially for such a minor and petty grievance. You likely won't give it the time of day, but if your mind is open enough, maybe you can consider why this particular few medium photos was such a problem over all of the similar sets I've posted outside a cut over the past years. Could just be timing, or content that has bothered you for far too long and finally time to act.
Anyhow, internet "friends" come and go. I wish you the best, we are all not looking for the same thing from this LJ experience, but if my real life highest moments really are an annoyance for someone else, wow, that is a good reason to part ways.
Re: pics - I make all pics show as icons in my LJ settings. If I wanna see pics I just click on them and open them up. Otherwise they are shrunk into little icons and I can just scroll on by.
I think other people are used to twitter and facebook and like to monitor tons of people just a teeny line at a time. I don't dig that and like to read the longer text.
I do almost always include LJ-cuts if I have more than a few paragraphs of text or more than a few smaller photos, but I think a balance is good. LJ is still a journal format, and not twitter. If I can scroll past pages of tweets that are directed at other people, I don't think a few smaller photos should be an emergency.
He's the best! Feeling super lucky.

That is very sweet. I am glad he is expressing his appreciation for you!!!
He has in so many ways. I'm a very lucky girl and so happy with him.

That is wonderful. I sometimes feel like I do so many things for Brandon that he takes for granted. Not that he's bad to me - you know he's good to me - but having a spontaneous gift come up out of nowhere is a total love-boost!
Beyooootiful. That's very sweet of him.
I love the multi-colored roses. Craig used to get me stargazer lilies, but those are poison to kitties. He's really a good one for paying attention though because I love the multi-colored both in looks and meaning. To me it means, I love you in all of those little ways. Friendship, love, innocence, beauty, all of the individual parts. Then with the card just saying what it did, I knew he thought about it. It means, "I love you in particular, the person you are, and I see you." What a message to send me on the day I needed encouragement at work the most. Craig makes the magic, and this time the universe aligns to help him out.
Pretty!! Want some...lol.
They are amazing. They look just as pretty in full bloom. I'll take a followup photo to share. The meaning just was touching. I love them.
Good job Craig!
Hope you've got a pleasant response planned!! *wink*
They're almost as pretty as you doll.
