I'm doing my own version again: making lists of five (or so) representative things and people that sum up the past year for me.

Books Music LJ posts My posts Significant events Stories People I'm really glad I got to know better (not restricting this one to five) People I already loved who continued to be wonderful (or this one; I am so blessed in that the list of people I automatically include is getting long!) New additions to my friends list Friends from other places who joined LJ Only three. Not doing so well with corrupting people this year, must try harder!

People not on LJ Places And I've succeed in my goal of staying single for the whole year. All 365 days of it, yes sir.

She totally does. I met her through taimatsu, who is also remarkably well connected. I liked her at first sight; if she has that effect on lots of people that could explain why she has loads of friends.

*smile* Thank you, and it pleases me inordinately that three out of the five books you pick are at my instigation; hope you find more to like so among those I have given you that you have not yet got to, and those I will doubtless send you in future.

You've been really good for me this year; I could have written almost the whole post about you. As it was I changed the music choices from my original set which was pretty much all the stuff you played to me when I was visiting, because in some not very sensible way it seemed unbalanced to include a lot of music as well as a lot of books I got from you. *Hug*

Thank you. *hug* I suppose it's good for my ego that you didn't.

While that is entirely fair enough, I should still be really interested in seeing those original music choices and what you would say about them.

Indigo Girls: Closer to fine. Pretty much the only song in the world about academia:

I'm sure there are others out there; I just can't think of any right now. 'Closer to Fine' remains one of my favourites of theirs, although the first 5 or 6 songs off that album are really good.

People I'm really glad I got to know better (not restricting this one to five)

Aw shucks. All I and tooticky did was to meet you in a cafe for dinner. Wait until I do some really amazing... ;)

OK, if there are other songs equally suitable for finishing a PhD as Closer to Fine, I'd love to know what they are! An academia themed playlist would amuse me, plus it would be a useful gift for several of my friends who are enduring the final stages of higher degrees right now. And yeah, I do like most of that album.

I know, but you met me at a time when I was feeling really down and you cheered me up no end. That's not nothing, and I'm really grateful. And this has been a year of meeting people in person whom I previously knew through LJ, and I'm really happy that I can do that (in spite of the prevailing wisdom that everybody on teh intarweb is an axe murderer or a pervert).

I'm not an axe-murderer; the other very much depends on where you start from, being one of those designators that seems to be heading in the "awarded in scorn and adopted in pride" direction.

You are so right. I really shouldn't say pervert when I mean predator. It's so completely second nature to me that I really do not care about anyone's sexual proclivities as long as their actions are consensual, that I forget to be careful with words. This is not the first time you've called me on this kind of mistake. I shall resolve to be more careful, and not in a new year resolution kind of way, but sincerely. Thank you.

Not sure I agree that I've been corrupted - just followed, like a sheep, the trend for creating a blog! It's been a worthwhile exercise though, so thank you.
I'm not hassling you, but did you get the email I sent re. meeting up? I'm just concerned I got the address wrong.

I know, I don't really take credit for convincing you to join LJ. Not for curious_reader either; she's really a friend of lethargic_man's. But there are several people I've been working on who are proving annoyingly resistant. I'm glad you've found LJ to be worthwhile, anyway.

I did get your email, and a round of serious diary hacking is the next thing I have on my agenda, as I have vague promises to meet up "in the new year" with a bunch of people, and need to turn them into specific arrangements. Thanks for the reminder, but it is in hand even if I'm being slow and inefficient!

I just thought I would say hi and that this is a good list. We met a few weeks ago at a birthday celebration involving lots of fruit beer and late nights with even later mornings.
