Obligatory sticky post

My journal's friends-mostly except for The Outfit Saga,  but I friend back by default.  When you friend me, you should drop a comment here so that:

1)  I notice and friend you back;
2) I don't wonder how you found me and spend 45 minutes poking around your old entries in an attempt to determine if you're actually my Crazy Ex-Boyfriend, Who Thought He Was Jesus (no, really), But Now Sells Men's Bathing Suits.

howdy! mostly-random friending here. I found you through my college friend dativesingular, on whose posts you often comment with exactly what I would say, if I had gotten there first, and were more eloquent. And then I find you like BSG and general fannishness and are religious, so I thought, what the heck, and friended you. feel no need to reciprocate!

Hi, I'm going to friend you now because:
a) I followed your icon back to you journal. The Jackson just does it for me and
2) It seems cool over there. I want to stay a little bit longer. So, hey.

Yay, jump in! I'm not posting much right now because I'm studying for the bar exam, but usually I'm a decently good time.

Erm.

That sounded dirty.

s'All the studying, it's warped your brain. I don't expect you to be dirty at all. Least not at first.

Good luck with all the book hitting!

I decided to add you as a friend. Looking forward to reading your entries and corresponding as both a runner and someone about to shove off to law school.

Welcome! I have falling off the posting wagon a bit, but am trying to rebound. Are you starting law school this fall?

Hey, random friending here. I saw your post in "runners", and recognized your screen name from corporette, where I lurk as well. I'm a non-practicing JD & recreational runner.

Hi! I am, as you see, horrible about keeping up on lj. Although I go through random phases of posting A LOT.

Well, hello there.

Long story short, I was doing a search on paranormal romance fiction and found one from you, which made me laugh so hard I snorted. *Ouch*

Then I was nosy and clicked your name and found this post, which also brought on the snorting, so I felt compelled to friend you.

Also, I am intrigued by the crazy ex-boyfriend story. I'm betting he and My Crazy Ex-Roommate Who Moved His Boyfriend (Of One Week) In Without Permission, Broke Up With Him And Told Me He Had Been Drugging Him, Made Me Change The Locks In The Middle Of The Night Only To Move Him Back In A Week Later Which Ended In A Huge Fight, Him Barricading Himself In His Room And Shutting Off Power To the Rest Of The Apartment, And Me Calling The Cops, Getting Him Evicted, and Transferring Myself To A One Bedroom Three Days Later. I think they'd really hit it off.

Indeed! We should introduce them. Maybe it would be true love!

Welcome to the journal - it generally alternates between mockery of bad romance writing and my theological maunderings. Hopefully it'll be to your taste!

It is EXACTLY my taste! I have a shelf full of cheap, bad romance novels that I read mainly just to get my WTF-IS-THIS-SHIT?! on. Although, I'll admit, there have been several that I left unfinished because they made me too stabby. The thing that pisses me off most is when a man is soooo wonderfully experienced in bed and just the best lover ever (naturally) and then he meets our heroine... a 30 year old virgin. Or she's had exactly ONE lover, and he was awful, of course, so the hero has to show her what an orgasm is. Because she doesn't know. Because, in the past 30 years of being a virgin or having limited bad sex, she never realized that she, in fact, had two hands of her very own. WTf?

Yeah, so I get frustrated with a lot of romance novels, as that seems to be a prevalent theme.

I think the most frustrating part, for me, is that romance novels seem to be mostly written by women. So... what woman out there thinks that real women can relate to (or would fantasize about being) a 30 year old virgin? That seems more like a man's fantasy than a woman's. So... who are they writing these books for again? :-/

Anyway, you'll come to learn that I sometimes get carried away with my ranting. Thanks for the add! :)
