I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. Some we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.
But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...they're obsessed with so-and-so."
I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal.
hollywoodsmile7's: Awww, this is cool. I'm from Alabama and I turn 25 on Sunday. "Cleolinda" is a lot more fun than my real name, Lauren, and at least I'm the only Cleolinda in the room at any given time. I love movies, particularly LOTR at the moment, and run a news site that I have not updated in a month, because I suck, but I am hoping to stop sucking tonight and update it.
eclectica's: Heeee, seriously. My problem is repeating myself, so I'm trying to think of something different to say on each journal. Hmm. Well, I'm the kind of person who says, "Dammit, it's four a.m. and I can't sleep. Where's Heaney's Beowulf, I haven't read that yet." And then I squee when I see words like "Theoden" and "Hama" and "Eomer" in there, and Heorot is like, totally the Golden Hall, man, and Theodred's funeral in the EE is almost word for word the way Heaney translates Beowulf's. Except that Theodred is not on fire. I am nerdtastic. ;)
brassyn: I'm not big on the phrasing of that (too schlocky) but the sentiment is fine. Doesn't have to be anything interesting: for example, 'that Fern Britton's a bit of alright' would suffice.
cleolinda: 'that Fern Britton's a bit of alright.' Snerk. Hmmm. "Most likely to wrestle you for Viggo Mortensen" sounds about right.
brassyn: Fern actually made headlines a few years ago when she left her husband to shack up with a toyboy, so Viggo's probably too old :)
cleolinda: Heeee. I meant me. Consider yourself warned. ;)
