Friending spree - Livre d'Or








Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes. * Blogroll * Strange words * More links * Bookies * Microblog * Recent comments * Humans only * Second degree * By topic * Cool posts * Writing * New post

Friending spree

I've friended a whole bunch of people I know slightly. Some through Support, some because they've friended me / and or comment on my posts, some people I've met briefly at parties, some because we have mutual friends and LJ is good at creating connections. My flist feels a little unwieldly at 125; 80 to 100 seems optimal to me personally. But then again, I don't have much I need to do at the moment, and meeting new cool people seems like a good use of my spare time.

So, hi new people. Have some virtual tea (or other virtual beverage if you're one of those tea-hating perverts). Welcome.

I may end up removing people again if I feel like I have too much to read or nothing much in common with some people. And when I get a job I will very likely need to trim my flist quite a lot. So don't take it personally if I unfriend you at some point; it's not a character judgement, just that, well, there's a point where socializing can become a chore rather than fun, and that applies in the virtual sphere too. I don't want to get to that point.

And meanwhile, here is a comment thread for people to introduce themselves (to the rest of the friendslist, if as in many cases I already know who you are). Or ask me a question or two if you want to know something about me. There are no bad questions on this journal, though I might have to be careful about answering if the answer affects other people.

Of course, there's no prohibition on old friends taking part as well, if you feel like it! I'm planning to do another round of the matchmaking game sometime soon, but now that my friends list is scarily huge, it may take a while.

You just like using the phrase my fiancé, don't you? You guys are so cute. I really like this as a potted bio, too.

I think you're about the only person I've pathetically begged to friend me (mostly I figure if someone has a FO journal I should leave them to it!), and I'm so glad I did. You rock.

Oh, the only reason I'm FO is because I have a very determined stalker. Three years later, they're probably bored, but why give them material? I've always enjoyed your contributions and love reading your entries. I'm pretty liberal with adding people, but even if I started cutting, you would totally stay. :)

(And of COURSE. All newly affianced girls need to show off their status at all times. Including waving their left hand in former suitors' faces. My ex-husband offered to give me away at the wedding. I declined. ;))
