Mememememe - Sally's Journal
Why am I on your LJ Friends List?
Comment and tell me. Then post this in your journal.
(a more interesting varient on "So who on earth reads this, then?" And a blatent comment whore. But I'm bored and in work, so humour me.)
In the first instance, by way of association with emperor
Because you're my fiancee :-)

Because you put me on your friends list! (clearly LJ-friendship is a symmetric relationship)
Hummm, that makes me randomly think, I wonder what would happen if they changed friends to be transitive....would probably make things *very* cliquey.

I assume far more people would use filters. I'm not sure how it'd even be implimentable... after all, I'd run screaming from an LJ that if you friended me, it let you read all my locked posts! ;-)

It doesn't have to be unilateral - it could be a change of state that only happens once both sides have indicated willingness.
This actually makes some sense for some ways that people (want to) use LJ.
Because I met you and you seemed very nice. :) And you ask interesting questions that get interesting answers.
Because occasional comments in an LJ make a fine substitution for a real-life friendship :P
You added me, I'd seen you around so added you back straight away. Your opinions are interesting and I like you, and you are good at musing on stuff.

Because I add everyone I know... and because you write an interesting LJ.
Meeting you via the Histories :) Can't actually remember if I'd added you before then, and if so, no idea why, but Histories is the abiding good reason, because it gave me a chance to actually realise 'ooh, nice person'.
Because you seemed interested in my silly life after finding me on cantabrigiensis
! And I think we originally 'bonded' over our shared love for the Goo Goo Dolls!!

Because you're Sally. That pretty much contains all the other reasons.
Because you're gorgeous and intelligent!

Because you friended me first, and because I'm nosy and find your journal good reading :-)
Because I started reading your journal (and those of others I knew on LJ) long before I got my own. I even commented anonymously on it (and scared you I think!) The main point of getting my own was to have a friends page to make keeping up on people's posts easier (and be able to read F-locked stuff). I have actually posted myself more than I thought I might.
I added you because you are part of the great Cambridge community which I miss so much.
I've kept you because you often have very insightful things to say. :-)

Because I like you and consider you interesting.
You introduced me to LJ...
Well, not just that - you're a nice person, too, so if I ever get off my lazy backside and started writing in my LJ, it would be only fair. Plus, you're one of the few links left to Cambridge :)
I think because you came and read MSND in Grantchester Meadows with me.
Well, a section called "Friends" makes one anxious if nobody's in it ;)
And I think you are an interesting person and it comes through in your lj.

Becuase you've got aesthtically pleasing breasts. I mean, mind.
In the first instance, by way of association with emperor, what with you being his "housemate" and all, and then after Oxonmoot.
Because I know you and you're really nice and a good kisser ;)
You're an important part of emperor
's life and I follow his, and you also were kind enough to tell me a bunch of personal stuff on IRC that made me feel closer to you. And, you generally seem like a nice person and I want to see you get through the various things that beset you.

Our connection is erica_freak
, whom I know from maths camp (all these acronyms: IIIMC and BMO squad being there and so on) many years ago [ok, about five]. Boredom leads to random reading of friends' friends pages, which either you or I must have done and found the other reasonably lucid. I seem to collect PhD students and girl-geeks in my acquaintance, so you fit in rather neatly!

You friended me, and I knew you.
Initially, because I wanted to see what kind of girl Matthew had involved himself with, and then I stayed when I realized he had good taste! ;-)
Because you write interesting posts that encourage me to think.
Because I met you through Will 2 1/2 years ago, and then discovered last year that you had an LJ (which I found through plinthy's). Because you befriended me too, and you have an interesting LJ. And I'm going out with someone called Matthew too - aren't Matthews great? (I already know far, far too many of them)

Cos we had a great chat at Oxonmoot!
I vaguely know you IRL (I think it's mostly emperor
's fault). Also your journal often has entertaining arguments on it.

, and then discovered your friendship with lifes_a_dream
- that and I'm convinced that reading some of your posts expands my conciousness!
Absolutely meant to reply to this ages ago! I added you because you were in the Cambridge community and you're a dancer. I still read because you write interesting and thought-provoking entries. I wish I commented more, but sometimes time and my brain are not on my side. ;)
