As Vonnegut said, "So it goes"

I had a very strange experience today.

I went to look up a friend I knew in college who I'd lost touch with, only to discover she'd died of cancer in 2002.

Eight years, and I had no idea.

I even found the obituary, just to make sure it was her.  It was.  It mentioned her love of French literature and her guitar playing.  Then I found out she'd been married to a woman she met in France.  Her wife had been endeared by the fact that she used French phrases from the 19th century.

Eight years, and I had no idea.

It's like tripping over something, saying goodbye to someone who's already been gone so long I should have known.

Hey... Does anyone know...?

Does anyone know how to search your own LJ?  I'm trying to track down an old post without paging through dozens of these things.

Oh, and by the way, what in the Sam Hill is a "Bookmarklet?"  Whoever came up with that term needs to be hit in the jaw with a length of steel pipe.

p.s. The "advanced search" seems absolutely unable to find the most basic entries in my journal.  Either that or I'm retarded, which is possible.
