Pointless bloody meme

Why am I doing a pointless meme? Probably because I'm lonely and I want people to comment again. :) Besides which, I sense people are getting sick of my posts about politics. (narwhale is responsible for this monstrosity. Blame her!)

Date you joined: 23 December 2003 (wow! Coming up to a year already?)

Number of journal entries: 140.

Number of people on your friends list: 52.

Person who introduced you to LJ: ristin

Still friends with this person: A bit more than friends, if you know what I mean. ;)

How many people have you introduced to LJ: Um, one person I can remember, but he didn't like it and moved on.

List everyone on your friends list who you have met in person: aldi, jagafeh, marcwolf, marko_the_rat (duh!), myzer, narwhale, ozkangaroo, parakleta, ristin, rose_quoll, sebkha, snowpony, stephenquoll, whyrl. (So many of you I feel as if I have met in person.)

Anyone on LJ you can't stand: There are some very sad people on LJ who certainly shouldn't be using up valuable air. But of course none of them are on my friends list.

Name one person on your friends list you would most like to meet: Ooh, tough one. Anyone I don't mention will be offended (and it doesn't mean I don't want to meet you). quentincoyote, but he was up against a lot of stiff competition. Ask me again in a week and I'm liable to have changed my mind.

Ever ban someone from commenting in your journal: No. I've contemplated needing to, but thankfully the need has never arisen.

Biggest pet peeve about LJ: There's not much really. This isn't a peeve, but I've been meditating on the nature of LiveJournal, which I imagine it shares with all blogging "communities". It's the essential falseness of it. We measure our status by the number of friends we have and so we daren't say anything too cruel on others' LJs. We are obligated to be "nice". But then, isn't that a welcome change from much of the internet?

Do you feel close to most of the people on your friends list: Not most of them, no.

How many journals on Live Journal do you have: This is it. How many should I have?
