What particular qualities do you look for in a friend? Being genuine is at the top of the list

A freind recently gave me five bags of yarn, so I'm working my way through that. I might take me forever, lol. I also swim for fitness, although I'm not that fit.
How would you describe your style? Ex-jock turned bohemian.
Anything else you'd like to tell? No drama! You can have drama in your life, we all do, but none of that lj drama between us. There is enough gossip drama, etc., in real life. Let's not fight each other here.

Hi!

Oh hey, thanks rock_dinosaur for making this community. I just found it. I see a few familiar usernames here, but some new ones too. I left facebook (aka voluntary big brother) many years ago and haven't looked back.

Name: Steph
Age: 38
Sex: Very woman
Location: Seattle, Wa USA
How long have you been on LiveJournal? I made my first livejournal in 2002. I've had this current one since 2011.
What do you/will you write about? I just blab on and on about whatever is in my head. I also like to post pictures. Mostly bird pictures. I'm obsessed with birds these days. I also write about baking because that's what I do for a "living".
What particular qualities do you look for in a friend? I like people that post often enough that I can get an idea of who they are. I do likes some interaction with them. People have to be okay with the fact that I generally keep LJ in LJ. I don't often take my LJ friendships beyond this website. Maybe if you live near me or are visiting my area I'll hang out with you.
What would cause you not to add someone as a friend, or to delete them? Drama. It's sad that it has to be stated, but hate speech is not cool.

Favorite books: Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky, Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami, and Better Homes New Cook Book I have one that was published in the 60's. It's fantastic and has everything in it. Even a recipe for brains.
Favorite foods: Baked goods. I eat them right out of the oven. I also love Indian curries, ramen noodles, spicy hummus and cucumber sandwiches with kalamata olives on pita bread.
Favorite drinks: Old Fashion: ice, bourbon, bitters, simple syrup, and orange zest. I make my own simple syrup. It's really easy and you shouldn't spend three dollars for a bottle of sugar water.
Favorite bands and musicians: My all time favorite is Judas Priest, but I love many others. Kate Bush, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Blood Ceremony, Rashaan Roland Kirk, Future Islands, The Cure, That 60's Cambodian psychedelic rock, William Onyeabor, Iron Maiden, Black Knight (80's Canadian version), Dick Dale, Bobby Womack, Jethro Tull, Talking Heads... I should stop here. I like music.
Hobbies and pastimes: Baking, gardening, birding, cycling, photography, and occasional hiking.
How would you describe your style? Mom. I can't help it. It's what I am.
Anything else you'd like to tell us? I just started making my fruitcake today, so there's some residual brandy and sherry in my system. Drinking usually leads me to creating posts in add me type communities.

Name: Selda
Age: counting down the days to 38 39 (still in denial)
Sex: I was born with girly bits. Still have ‘em.
Location: The Netherlands
How long have you been on LiveJournal? My account is 5 yrs old, I’ve been creeping around for lot longer.
What do you/will you write about? Everything and nothing. Things that wonder me, responsible-adult woes, venting, bragging ;), picspam, some memes. My brain farts really. I do have some minor fandom-y things but those almost always goes behind a cut.
What particular qualities do you look for in a friend? Someone with a pulse that isn’t shy about interacting every now and then. A sense of humour is greatly appreciated. And patience, my BF tells me that I can be insufferable at times. :|
What would cause you not to add someone as a friend, or to delete them? Overly political people (be it left, right, or centre. American politics in specific) give me hives. So that, I guess.
Favourite films or TV shows: Films: Harry Potter (for the atmosphere), Galaxy Quest, The Birdcage, Hababam Sinifi series (original), Hot Fuzz (luv Simon Pegg)
TV: Dirk Gently, earlier seasons of Call The Midwife, The Big Bang Theory
Favourite books: Harry Potter, anything Stephen King pre-sobriety, The Thief of Always by Clive Barker. The list is dynamic but these stay constant.
Favourite foods: Turkish food
Favourite drinks: Aperol Spritz
Favourite bands and musicians: The Police, ABBA, I’ll listen to anything that’s easy on the ears.
Hobbies and pastimes: I’ve become somewhat of a gym rat in the past few months. I’ve also taken up running because I like a challenge. When I’m not bouncing off the walls, I try my hand in writing (fanfic mostly, some original fic). When everything else fails to entertain me, I lurk around Reddit and shake my head at those damn kids.
How would you describe your style? Severely lacking
Anything else you'd like to tell us? Nah, it’ll just scare you off. But I’ll share my kitties:

New friends

Name: Katy
Age: 46
Location: UK
How long have you been on LiveJournal? 18 years and never left. I've logged so much of my life here and love it.
What do you/will you write about? Thoughts, feelings, relationships, friendships, goals, creative hobbies and deep like questions/subjects.
What particular qualities do you look for in a friend? I'm primarily looking for people who are interested in sharing journals over a two way interaction and keeping this community alive. I am curious and love learning about other people but if we have interests in common too, that's a bonus.
Hobbies and pastimes: Blogging, being an internet geek, radio, creative writing, penpalling, social media, online social groups, getting lost in a good book, movie, TV series or webpage, theme parks/water parks, some sports, daydreaming, psychology/human dynamics, social issues, writing lists, self reflection, simple living, social equality, having a free thinking lifestyle and more.

Feel free to add me if you think we might get along but I'm open to a two way "get to know each other" too, even if we're different as LiveJournal is a unique interest we share in itself.

Returning to LiveJournal :)

Name: Jonathan

Age: 46

Sex: Male

Location: UK

How long have you been on LiveJournal? I have had several accounts over the years — and have just returned after a year away. I can remember LiveJournal when it was still owned by Brad Fitzpatrick, before Six Apart, Vox, and long before it was sold off.

What do you/will you write about? I empty my head each day — sometimes every day, sometimes every other day. I write about my various adventures, thoughts, ideas — whatever comes to mind each day really. I tend to just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and see where they take me.

What particular qualities do you look for in a friend?  I don't really look for anything in particular. Perhaps a penchant for procrastination :)

What would cause you not to add someone as a friend, or to delete them? Anybody with an agenda, or looking to push objectional views.

Favourite films or TV shows: Ok crikey — that's difficult. So many. Movies — Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, St Elmos Fire, Breakfast Club, Contact, You've Got Mail, What Dreams May Come, The Shawshank Redemption, Star Wars, Jaws... I could go on and on. TV shows — Community, Mr Robot, Halt and Catch Fire.

Favourite books: Ready Player One, Jurassic Park, Anna Karenina, Peter Pan, Otherworld, Neverwhere, Discworld, Harry Potter

Favourite foods: Pizza, Chocolate

Favourite drinks: Wine, Coffee, Tea

Favourite bands and musicians: The Beatles, Nik Kershaw, Howard Jones, Elton John, Roxy Music, Duran Duran, Coldplay, Idina Menzel, Suzannah Hoffs, Wilson Phillips, Tori Amos, Simon and Garfunkel, Chicago, ABBA (pretty much anything except rap and thrash metal really).

Hobbies and pastimes: Writing, running, playing chess

How would you describe your style?  Relaxed low maintainance geek :)

Anything else you'd like to tell us? Interested to see where this goes! It's been a long time since I last landed in LiveJournal. I kind of miss it.
