Not more than a few weeks after renewing my LJ Account for the fifth year, the "Permanent Accounts" became available. So I just dropped another $150 on top of the renewal fee to get one, mainly so I don't have to keep screwing with the renewal every June.
A Lifetime LJ account... hrm.. I guess that means I'll have to stick around for awhile. That, and post more often than a few times a year, just to get my money's worth. (If I wasn't so busy running around in spandex, anyway) ;)
