I want to tell you that all the answers to the mysteries of the ages are lurking under here but I can't even type that with a straight face.

I use my journal for posting ephemera that amuses me. I use my journal for posting about RL vexations that set me off on a rant. I use my journal to hoard things to my bosom that I might want to paw again later. I do not, in general, use my journal for deep introspection.

If you have a completely empty journal and I have NEVER chatted with you at any Com, I'm probably not going to friend you back. While Coms are full of lurkers -- the more the merrier -- the idea of lurkers on my personal LJ holds no appeal at all.

If I don't friend back, please do not be offended as no offence is intended I assure you. I may just feel that we still need to get to know each other better:

1)I try to keep my flist to a manageable size.

2)I prefer to have something in common with my friends beyond mutual fannish interests. That *doesn't* have to mean anything concrete, it might well just be an impression of the same kind of sense of humour garnered from com chat.

Be fabulous!

Another great Oscar quote . . .

"a sort of creeping common sense"

I like to think that I'm managing to stay at least two steps ahead of that one.

I adore him... Um... you might have guessed *snerk*

I first read him when I was about 8 *strange child* I swear it was like lightbulbs went off behind my eyes. I'd had a really bad couple of years and I read a lot to escape and to be somebody (anybody else). That's why this quote is on my profile page "Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken." It really resonated with me. Then I read biographies of him and got angry about how the authorities destroyed him.*very strange child* We talked recently about finding your voice to question authority. That's when it all started with me.

Dear Ms. Draycevixen,
I am new to the Gallery.. although I must admit
I have been lurking for a long time. I have missed your presence lately.
I'm not sure I have many brain cells to spare, but what the heck.

Hi Zenrin:

Sorry to have taken a while to get back to you. As I "operate" a "friends only" journal, my friend list tends to stay on the sparse side. Most of my flist comes from a time during which I was working on my own RL writing less and playing in the Gallery more -- I got to "know" my Gallery friends before adding them.
However, as you've been friended by the great and fabulous Pinkilicious, that's a good enough recommendation for me!

You are hereby friended back... Sorry! :D

Is thrilled and honoured...
Please, friend away! May I friend back?

My journal really is packed full of ear wax and tin foil helmets... really *useful* stuff. In fact, I recently got bored and took most of it down.

Given this information, if you still want to do it friend away. I'm sure you won't recognize anyone *cough* mentioned in recent posts. :D

Post with my name on it? *is nervous*

*Waves back* and is thrilled to return the friending. I'm normally a bit shy about friending because my journal really is full of drivel -- in fact I cleaned most of it out recently. I just like to know who I'm "playing" with! :D

No, never. Any friend of Fi, Andy and Elf is a... better not finish that sentence as my mother raised me to be polite! *snerk*

As long as you understand that I'm serious about the ear wax and tin-foil helmet content of my journal you're welcome. Just click on my Friend link and I'll friend you back.

My memory may be playing up -- I'm full of cold meds have just returned from the Motherland with a Dickensian cough -- but didn't I see you trying to "badger" *cough* someone into writing femmeslash earlier? If so, you might want to check out Andy's list of LoM femmeslash as there are a couple of Phyllis/Annie NC-17 bits there. IGNORE mine -- I always go for the joke. She's attempting to badger people into writing more.

Dear Your Holiness,

I request the honour of friending you trying to get you on side before the boys break the door down if you don't mind give me a sign that you're not going to break my legs

I bring you some youtubey goodness as a small offering. The man in the segment is my hero I have a strange sense of humour and find it hard to take anything seriously, your Highness what's that large plank of wood for?

Ooooh! The Pope loves prayer and supplication particularly supplication *ahem* and so will be honoured to grant your request jumps up and down as long as I can return the friending. The boys want to know where Hard Gay lives did I mention that they're the London affiliate of the Gay Mafia? and for the record I found your youtube offering to be offensive laughed my arse off and an inappropriate tribute to Pope Di anytime petal! The Pope wished to show you a more appropriate offering replacing his dub of "The Sound of Music" with this...

I've been waiting to friend you until I finished Series 2 of LOM - as a token attempt to avoid spoilers.

Having now done this, I just now have to hope that my tentacles are sufficiently endearing to allow me to play ;-)
draycevixen
Feb. 24th, 2008 04:35 pm (UTC)
Awww! Your tentacles are simply adorable! ♥

I feel like I should apologize in advance for what will amount to prolonged exposure to tin foil helmets and ear wax.

Oh, and please excuse my recent "rantiness." I'm not usually known for my ranting -- unless it's comic ranting -- but recently a few things got under my blanket... and not in a good way *waggles eyebrows*

I'm friending you back, hope it's OK? If not, just speak up. This is the land of Do as thou wilt.

The Harkness Factor
Bearing my letter of recommendation from Blythechild, I humbly request your friendship.

I don't find too many people who love Torchwood, Simon Pegg, Jane Eyre, Pirates and Slash as much as I do.
And, of course, V - I've been a fanatic since I read the graphic novel at 16...
I don't tend to write about it, but I did rove the city last November 5th with a can of spray paint, a variety of posters and a bucket of wheat paste.

Thank you for your consideration,
Reynardin

Re: The Harkness Factor
Sorry... I only just saw this, LJ's been playing silly buggers all day.

Any friend of Blythe's, well... is probably trouble but that's OK! *eg*

Sounds like we have a lot of scholarly *cough* interests in common although my journaling about such tends to fall in the random category... well most things I do fall into the random category. My slash fic postings tend to happen elsewhere other than challenge thingies. My journal is pretty much tin foil helmets and ceiling wax.

Anyway, go ahead and friend me if you're still interested and I'll friend back. IF the triviality of it all causes you nosebleeds feel free to unfriend, no harm, no foul.

Dear Ms Vixen,

May I be your friend please? I don't talk much but I like to listen! (Only just realised we weren't already friended). While I'm here, can I just give you a hearty pat on the back as earned by anyone who pimps Pros round other fandoms. more of that sort of behaviour is needed! :DD
draycevixen
Mar. 26th, 2008 02:16 pm (UTC)
Well you've read the warning statements I take it... my LJ really is full o' ear wax and tin foil helmets, no joke.

As you are ze big Pros fan -- your user name is a dead giveaway -- I do feel the need to make a further disclosure.

I'm the "Big Pimpin' Mama" of fan fiction anyway. I know what I like and I like to share. My mission on behalf of The Pros has been undertaken because I really hate most of the older Pros stories. I'm sorry, but even when I squint I just can't understand the OOC girliness, the huge amounts of rape/assault fic and the no-lube hard lurving.

I love the Pros because they're both such blokey blokes -- I love Sam/Gene too remember -- and I just can't wrap my head around how anyone can love the Pros and want to write them as EMO and abusive. Sorry, mini rant.

So... if you want to change your mind, no harm, no foul. If you still want in, welcome, have some Pink wafers and a cuppa... Friended.
