friends list changing numbers rapidly - after the script i ran (yes, yes, i shall get around to posting what it was exactly soon, i promise.), my friends list jumped way up, and now i'm getting deleted by approximately 3 people a day. no problem. i'm not for everyone. i wish you all a grand life!

although i was late - and pissed that i woke up at the time i was supposed to be there - my walk to work was nice. the weather is PERFECT outside at the moment, which is a reminder of one of the big reasons i am in love with this area. i walked into work in a chipper mood.... and instantly saw dark clouds over every single one of my coworkers heads. usually, i get waves or hello's, but they all... glared at me. i also managed to piss off the one manager that i never thought i would see angry, though i don't think that i was 100% responsible for his anger. another coworker has been blowing us off repeatedly the last couple of weeks, and had called in again to say that he wouldn't be in because his wife just went back to work, he can't get a hold of his parents, and he doesn't trust anyone with the baby other than them. okay, understandable, but what about the other 293874938 times? (i also discovered that when i ditched an important band practice to cover his shift so he could go to the dentist that he didn't go, and begged for another day off the following week that he had already been scheduled for, thusly shorting us again.) anyhoo, my shift began with me counting into my till about an hour and fifteen minutes late, snuffling over the counter and holding my eyes in front of the fan in an attempt to get rid of evidence of my tears.

things got better right around the time i got back from lunch, though. i wasn't completely prepared to rush home and drown myself in drano. erm, tequila. not that we HAVE tequila.

every time i eat something, it seems to want to come back up, which is LOVELY. it's odd, because - again - i've never been a thrower upper, and i feel completely FINE, other than the constant taste of bile. not nauseated. not tired or dizzy. i'm just doo dee doo-BARF. shrug.

hehe I always get a little sad when I'm deleted, even when I didn't know the person at all.

My list has been holding more or less steady for awhile now LOL

Me, too. It kind of amazes me, but other than the little script thing that I ran around the time this post was originally made, my friends list has stayed pretty solid for the last THREE YEARS.

Quite pleased, I am. There were a few upsets when people who had been on my friends list for YEEEEARS dropped me with no warning, but I can accept that we have had nothing in common for years.

I guess.

I don't even look at my list anymore, I'm sure some have dropped off. A few deleted their journals. I'm nowhere near as active as I used to be.
I came to realize though that there are really so few people online that I'm close to. Even people I thought I was close to a year ago, we never talk and have nothing in common now.
I think probably you, kabandra and quoatamour are my only LJ friends that I feel like I have a bond with. At this point everyone else feels like either an acquaintance or someone I just grew apart from.
I thought the older I got, the better I would be at making friends but it seems like I am only able to connect with just a few people. Some of my friends in the past have just said terribly hurtful things that you wouldn't even say to a co-worker much less a friend. THe sad thing is, most of the time, I observe them later as being perfectly polite to others so unless they still say stuff like that to friends that I just don't know about, I get the feeling that it's something about me that people just don't like. It makes me scared to open up and now I'm so busy that I really don't have time to make new friends anyway and possibly endure their criticism.
The funny thing is, I know that Im a nice person. I know that more than likely people that have said the awful things (or done awful things) to me aren't 'bad people'..and I spent years trying to solve the riddle on what makes some people do what they do to me and how I can alter myself so it won't happen again..but after awhile I guess age and life caught up with me, I probably can't hold down more than a few friends at a time anyway :-D

Wow this is a depressing comment.

curse you.. I now have that song going in my head.

:P

of course it doesn't help that I've played that video 5 or so times.

Lucky for you, it's been removed!!!

I miss the fun of The Muppet Show.

Honestly I'd be relieved if about 75% of my FL dropped me.

I got "Solid State Warrior" last Spring and have listened to it twice. Am I the only Jellyfish fan who finds Roger's album unlistenably cheesy?
(Rog, if you ever read this - I'm so sorry and I love you very much. Don't care for the new record. But hell, 99 out of 100 ain't bad.)

Really? Remember that community you made where people been talkin' about it? ;)
Wait, your own community dropped you?!

Since I'm such a bad LJ friend..... ;)

I got his one... crap. I thought I was going to be able to talk about such things as album titles in detail, but my brain farted and is now empty.

My brother bought the Jellyfish tribute album. I was listening to it in the shower the other night, it's.. interesting.

I got mad that they didn't ask me to be part of it, but apparently someone did ask me and I never answered.

Well, that brought back some lost forgotten memories. I haven't seen the muppets in years.

Incidently, that song in the head thing? It just jumped the Pacific :D

I'm still curious about what that script is, but to lazy to go and find out. That video clip? It was awesome! But WHY was the last part subtitled in SWEDISH? Please say that it was for everyone, I'm sleep deprived and even easily confused than usual.

I hope your food starts to agree with you better soon.

Because you're secretly Swedish, and the video tailors itself to whatever your inner nationality is.

Or something.

The whore script was a file that you would run with your lj name and password. It would go around and randomly add people onto your friends list. If they added you back, they remained there. If they didn't, after 60 minutes, the script would delete them and add more people randomly.

Now that it's been almost three years since I ran it, I think that it's pretty cool that I ended up with several people from it that I absolutely adore - and that I probably never would have met otherwise. It pissed a few people off - I found it funny that although I made posts explaining who I was and where I came from and what was going on, the posts were inundated with responses like "Do I know you?" and "Why did you add me?" and "You're a fucking bitch, who do you think you are, trying to pry into my personal life?"

But it's not really a secret that I'm Swedish ;)

That sounds kinda fun, never heard of it before.

Three people a day? That sounds huge. :)

You know what this post made me think about? That you sound happier where you are than you ever did in Phoenix.

Amazing how that works, no? I just hit my six year anniversary of living here, and I'm still worlds happier than I ever was in Phoenix. Funny that I kicked and screamed against the decision to move up here, and - as I had felt when I was going through it all - it was something I desperately NEEDED to do, and that everything would work out.
