live journal (lj) – n. Free online blogging service.
analogy Live journals are like ropes. They help you climb the social ladder. However, the rope (lj) only works if you reach out (type in your password) and grab it (pick a cool color scheme, generally an unreadable one) and pull yourself up (write daily updates as to how your life is going and how stupid everything else is, then open the forum for comments). It also helps to post some hawt pictures of yourself, especially when posed with two or three members of the opposite sex.
