Friends Only

This journal is friends-only.
Please leave a comment if you feel you should be added.

Some things you can expect from me:

1 - I don't filter people out. If you are on my flist I read what you write unless it's been way too hectic around here. I sometimes miss posts but that is usually because I have to break up my reading between baby needs. I figure that if you are on my flist the least you deserve is to have me glance at your stuff.

2 - I usually don't do filtered posts but I will cut stuff that I find uninteresting or stuff that is picture heavy. Filtered posts are usually for birthday surprises and the like.

3 - I am extremely tongue-in-cheek and sometimes my sarcasm-o-metre is through the roof. I have had people add me who don't get sarcasm. It was a disaster. Rest assured that when I post and refer to myself as the awesomest thing that ever lived, chances are I am joking or I wrote it because it goes with the post. I may joke I am never wrong, but WOO BOY have I been proven wrong a lot -- and I will admit to it.

4 - I never, EVER make passive-aggressive posts with the comments turned off so that I can insult someone on my flist without allowing them to respond. If you have a problem with me or something I said, please feel free to just ask me about it (in a kind way, randomly throwing insults may not get you a welcome response).

5 - I don't sway my beliefs easily. I am pro-choice and I support gay rights. In general I am a liberal hippie type. I understand that not everyone will hold those views but if you think that will be an issue, perhaps you could filter me out of those posts and we can instead talk about the things we do agree on. Although I may be a slave to the snark, I don't think time is best served by flinging mud over the intarweebs -- especially when it concerns opinions where neither party is going to change their minds about. I do love a heated discussion however.

October 7, 2009: Sorry kids, some bad experiences have led me to nix new friends. If you think we would be great friends or if I know you personally, please email me asimplife@livejournal.com. Thanks :)

This might sound weird/random. But you were a St. Margaret Mary's student and you were born in '75... which means you must have been in the one and only Gr 7 class it had? My brother (Andy) was in that class.

Andrew Kidd?

I suck for not friending you sooner. I read your posts over Denise's shoulder so often that I forgot that I didn't have you on my friends list.
Jul. 8th, 2006 12:46 am (UTC)
...just a note to say hello...
...and to ask how long Dixie slept after Saturdays play-fest with Angel n the others...our silly mutt slept almost 3 days, lazy thing...we'll have to plan to get together more often, maybe take'm both to the parks n let'em run out all their sillies together...giz a buz, we'll chat!

You posted to Married_Life and got my attention. I really want to read your "20 Goals for my 30th year" post that's mentioned on your userinfo page, but I think that we might make good friends as well. I just got married last year, am turning 31 in 3 weeks, and have suddenly ended up thinking that all the formerly boring goals are now exciting ones as well. I don't post very often, but I'm a reader/commenter galore. Are you interested?

Re: Me?
Sure thing! Welcome!
Jul. 25th, 2006 01:59 pm (UTC)

Found you!
Hi Tara, it's the other Tara here!
I'm in Ottawa again (does anyone really ever leave?) and I would love to see you to catch up.
Hit me up and let me know if you're interested!

Re: Found you!
Is it creepy to say that I just had a dream about you the other night? WEIRD! I am so glad you found me! I have searched around for you but haven't found you! YAY!
Sep. 27th, 2006 01:49 pm (UTC)
Hello, my name is Brian. I am new to livejournal and im trying to get involved and read other peoples view. I first noticed your peanuts avatar (being a peanuts fan myself) knew this place was worth a visit (if you feel to add me as a friend that is. Take care, hope to talk to you soon!

Sure! I don't always talk about frugality but it comes up :)

I created a whole entry on what I am about, here: http://asimplelife.livejournal.com/678598.html#cutid1. If you read it and decide you don't want to be my friend after that, well that's ok too :)

Hello! We both know Eden AND Greg Cameron and that seems like too unlikely an overlap for us not to have some neat stuff in common.
Dec. 1st, 2008 12:04 am (UTC)
Holy carp, we do have a lot in common indeed :)
Dec. 12th, 2008 03:18 pm (UTC)
I've been looking around at people to friend. You seem interesting and I was wondering if you were okay with me adding you as a friend.
Dec. 12th, 2008 03:41 pm (UTC)
Sure thing :)

HFCS info from a friend
I came to your journal through a link on my friends list. I think we might have a lot in common. I friended you so you could look through my journal. If you think we aren't, then just let me know and I'll remove you. No hard feelings :)
