One day monkeys will take over the world, and when they do, I shall be their queen!  

S'up.

I had this idea.

It stemmed from another thing. (By the way, have you ever tried to follow your thoughts back, even for the last five minutes? It made my head so sore I had to stick it under the tap. Well, not really, but closer than an ant's shoelace.)

I like reading my flist. It may not seem that way, because I don't comment all that often (I don't think). The reason for that is, sometimes things are going on in people's lives that started long before I read about them, so I don't wish to intrude. Sometimes I have nothing pertinent to say. Sometimes I just don't know what to say. However, it's never a chore for me -- in fact, I do it when I should be doing far more important things, like studying.

(LJ: THE ULTIMATE PROCRASTINATION TOOL!)

I think that a flist is a magnificent window of opportunity for any writer. Where else are you allowed into other people's minds like this? Obviously, not everyone uses their lj for the same thing (yes, you're allowed to smack me one for pointing out the bleedin' obvious), but the over-arching sense of anonymity allows people to reveal things that really illustrate something about them -- the thing they've chosen to bring to la internete. Even in the most tedious of posts, I have fun making mental thumbnails of people. I reckon it helps with my characterisation (and by jove, does it need it).

And I want more!

Therefore, I'm asking anyone who has a minute to give me a name from their flist, and I shall friend them. I'm not asking for 'specials' or 'favourites,' although someone who wouldn't think I'm the most annoying git who ever cut off her hair and sold  it in a Turkish bazaar would be nice. It can be completely random. I just want the name; I'll go from there.

Who knows? It could be the start of a beautiful friendship. :P

Hmm. emcue is definitely a winner. She's very interesting, funny, friendly, and has this ability to rant about things that matter that I almost envy.

I hope you get along and what not, and this is such a good idea that I can easily see it becoming a meme, but damned if I'm going to start another one of THOSE. :P

I tried this once, but have mostly defriended all the randoms because I don't know them. I'm normally too scared to comment on the journals of people who friended me first, never mind randoms that I'm stalking.

But I will suggest thrupenny because you love this icon she made me, and you're both massive H/D fans.

I friended you first, I remember that. Everyone important to me on lj I friended first, with the possible exception of geoviki.

*sigh* I was so going to study this morning.

Instead I friend-spree.

I don't see sarahtales (aka Maya) on your list, whereas I am convinced you two were separated at birth. She's also Irish, about your age, and about as insane.

Also lizardspots, who's also heading towards doctorhood, lives in London, and is an HP artiste.

To wit, I am not insane, I am sanity challenged.

Eh, I've had Maya on and off my list about forty thousand times. I get lost in the huge swamp that is her flist. Also she makes me feel like a small squashed beetle with an inferiority complex the size of Blighty, as her cooless is kind of nuclear.

I guess now is as good a time as any to put her 'on' again.

I talked to her once! *bustles off to friend*

(See? I'm so easily swayed. All someone has to do to get me to do something is say 'do it'.)

You get three, from me!

Because two of them (parcae and crazedcrusader) are in this room with me right now, and they are love. (However, CC-who-is-really-a-Val does not update very frequently.)

Also there is rebootfromstart, unless she has changed her name to rebootfromstart in which case you will not see that her name has been freeformchick, who is my best friend and lives in Sydney Australia and babbles on about roleplaying and writing just about as much as I do.

Also out of curiosity, did you ever see quickndirtybeta?
