The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
I just did the largest purge of my friends list I've ever done - I dropped a *lot* of communities, and a fair number of individuals. None of it was personal, no one ticked me off or anything. Just lately I've been feeling like my life is on auto-pilot and I'm stuck in a rut, spending a lot of time just keeping up with things. So I've decided to cut back on some things, including how much I read on LJ. There are some people who I think are very cool but we just have different interests so I find I'm not really into most of what they post about. Other people haven't posted in a LONG time, so I figure they abandoned LJ. And some folks it just seems like our interests diverged at some point and that's life, nothing personal.

If I dropped you and you're sitting there going "Hey! I read your LJ and the friends posts!" Comment and let me know, I'll probably re-add you if you want. If you're wondering why I dropped you in particular and what to know, ask. Heck, I might've goofed since I was dropping so many journals I may have collected the wrong one in the purge. Especially if I know you personally outside of LJ, I was trying not to drop any of those.

I am: tired tired
Current Media: quiet office

You may not remember me, but I met you once or twice through gizmoek. I do enjoy reading your lj, including the stuff behind the work filter. If I could be added back, it'd be appreciated.

OK, you're back - you hadn't posted in so long I didn't know you were still using LJ. :-)

Oh, hey, I just put you back on. I actually do read a lot of your posts. If you were on my work filter or anything let me know so I can make sure you're back on it.

I do really want to meet you sometime too.

So why did you drop me? I may not post to your journal a bit but I *do* read what you have to say. :)

It just felt like we hadn't intersected in a while - neither of us had commented to the other in a while, and I've been at kind of a loss to really say anything with your current events. I wasn't sure you still read my stuff at all. :-)

Cool that you do - I think you're a cool person. I put you back - if you were on a filter let me know and I'll re-do that too. :-)

Well, I keep looking for you online via IM's since you have your own special meta contact with me! Either you don't get on anymore (very probable) or I just missed you. Either way, you DO have my cell :p It's not like you can't call me (and vice versa I suppose ;)

As for my recent events - even *I* can't comment on those :p

As for filters, you put me on your work filter, because it's itneresting and I like learning about new technology -- what other filtes did you have?

Ah, I haven't been running IM as much lately. I'll try to do that more when I'm online mainly for fun.

Not sure what I'd say if I called - I'm so bad on the phone. :-)

I was never on your friends' list to begin with ;) No hard feelings, here.

You're interesting. I can't say I always understand or agree, but you make me think with some of your posts. I did consider it for a bit, but decided not to.

I don't really care for children, but it almost seems like over the time I've read your LJ you've gotten even more extreme about disliking them. Past the point I can really understand - like you despise anyone who breeds. And it is obvious we don't have the same sense of humor, since I really liked a lot of the JLU episodes and you seem to hate them. :-)

I think I'm just a lot more laid back and mellow and I don't get as worked up about as many things.

OK, I added you back. I don't want you to feel like you have to comment or anything though.
