Hard meme

j4 came up with a challenging meme. I normally refuse on principle to spread memes that have blackmail attached to them, but hers is such a great idea that I wanted to do it anyway.

It's surprisingly hard, though! I came up with ten people I could talk to without using LJ. But not all of them are on my friendslist, and I don't have something specific to say to them in every case, a lot of them I just wanted to chat about stuff in general. I think making a post saying, who would like some non-LJ communication with me? is cheating, because that blatantly breaks the without the aid of LiveJournal rule!

Of course, the fact that it's tough is making me even more determined to do it, but it's hard. I think this demonstrates j4's implied point that we're all lazy about real socializing due to LJ making things too convenient!
