I was looking through some old entries and came across this meme. Thought I'd do it again, as...some of it's changed quite a bit...

Number of journal entries: 2755. Well, 2756, including this 'un...

Number of people on your friends list: On my mutual friends list, 139. 226 in total on my friends list, which includes a fair few people who either a.) I've friended but they've not reciprocated, or b.) they friended me back but then defriended me later.

Person who introduced you to LJ: Still kattahj.

Still friends with this person: Yes.

How many people have you introduced to LJ: Not sure. Sarah (huntingospray) for definite.

List everyone on your friends list who you have met in person: Not 100% sure about some of these, but roughly speaking... __kali__, __wilderness__, aeglefinus, airinshaw, almell, alyse, amberb_uk, angelofthenorth, annephoenix, artharsil, avonette, beren_writes, bittereloquent, blazingskies, burkesl17, calyxess, castalie, cath, catwalksalone, chaletian, chioces, chthonya, cienna, creatore_magico, cu_sith, dalethetimelord, dora_the_nymph, draco_crescendo, elfinessy, entorien, envinyatar15, fides, flamingkitties, fledge, flickums, flip18, freedomdarkness, gaspodex, gatewaygirl, gem_pinkeh, greyfore, gumbie_cat, hils, huntingospray, i_just_hide, inflatablefish, ionaonie, its_art, j_apollo, katemonkey, kharma2815, klo_the_hobbit, krazykipper, landfill_sky, laura_the_auror, laurasplog, lizardspots, magic_at_mungos, maiafire, mandragora1, mctabby, megamole, meroveus, miki_moo, miriammoules, missfahrenheit, mizzykitty, moonlettuce, morganmuffle, moth2fic, moufflon, multiclassgeek, ngaio, novawulfen, pinkamethyst, pomkeygeekange, purple_pirate, purplethings, r_grayjoy, rach74, rhaegal, ruthiesgc, seektheinfinite, selenay936, shiny_crystal, sillyshy, son_of_darkness, soupytwist, squirrela, stopwatch_plz, tahariel, takadainmate, tammy_louise, tehexile, temaris, the4ts, the_barlow, thisissirius, thwax, tlanti, turps33, twilightsorcery, uninnocent, valderys, violetcreme, who_la_hoop, wiccagal_1996, wickednotevil, wyntir_rose, xanantha, xandutch, xnuinx, yami_tai, yaminokurisu, zellieh, zoeiona

That's with the caveat that there are quite a few in that list that I've probably met once at a con, friended them as a result, and then not met them since. If your name's on that list and you think we've never met, not even fleetingly, let me know! On the other hand, if you're pretty sure we've met, however fleetingly, and I've not mentioned you, then feel free to jog my memory.

Anyone on LJ you can't stand: I don't normally go for not standing anyone. (This answer hasn't changed since last time.)

Name one person on your friends list you would most like to meet: As with last time, I don't think I'd want to limit it to just one. In general, if you're on my Flist and we've not met, then time and money and geography willing, meeting would be A Good Thing.

Specifically, I'd like to meet up with gipsy_dreamer, sunlightdances, thinkpink20, and ghyste - if you folks would ever like to meet for a cup of tea and a slice of cake with me and Sarah, don't hesitate to give me a shout.

Also, the LJ user formerly known as badwolf735, 'cos he seemed like a really nice guy - he'd previously been known as madben, then deleted that journal, then resurfaced as badwolf735, then deleted that journal. I hope he's okay; hs has another journal now, but so far I've not friended him 'cos I suspect he needs a bit of space.

And snowgrouse too, for slightly different reasons - I managed to upset her without even trying, and would like a chance to apologise and hopefully show her that I'm not really such a bad person after all.

Ever ban someone from commenting in your journal: Yes. It's not something I take any delight in, but there are a few people who rather badly upset me, defriended me amidst some degree of animosity, and banned me from commenting on their journal. For my sanity's sake, as much as anything else, I've reciprocated. Although quite frankly, if they're happy to forgive and forget, I am too. Thinking about them doesn't particularly help my state of mind any. So I wish I could stop myself thinking about them. Doesn't seem to work, though.

Number of comments: 3941 received; 6261 posted.

Biggest pet peeve about LJ: "XXXX has removed you from their friends list" is still one of the most painful things I ever read. Fortunately it doesn't happen too often, but I always take it personally even though I know I shouldn't. Well, I hope I shouldn't.

Do you feel close to most of the people on your friends list: Most of the people I friend, I do so because there's a few shared interests, or we've met at a convention. Over the time, there are some I feel I've gotten to know fairly well through their entries and comments. Whether I have gotten to know them or not, I don't know. (This, again, hasn't changed since last time.)

How many journals on LiveJournal do you have: This one; a community I started, brider_writing, which was officially for posting fic but I haven't really used it much; and a roleplaying journal for a Harry Potter RPG comm (I was Hermione), which hasn't had much use since the RPG finished. Indeed not for some time before it finished.
