Random thoughts [Aug. 10th, 2004|10:53 pm]

[Current Mood |blankblank]

You know, no one who has amassed only 7 livejournal entries should have 175 friends and almost 250 comments. Then again, susitna tells a winning tale.

And it doesn't hurt that she is my daughter, or that her stepfather is theferrett has raved about her journal a couple times.

Still. I'm amazed. I was on here for a couple years before I got that kind of crowd!

I'm up to 27 crushes on LJ Crush meme, but only 12 are mutual. Who are the rest of you?!

Yeah, I don't think I have that type of crowd. If I only had seven entries and did, I don't know what I'd feel like.

Are you using the word "guys" inclusively? ;P

Quality > Quantity

Having Ferrett post links gets a lot of hits, but it is the quality that keeps you there. The 'Most Embarassing' post had me laughing and cringing at the same time, and even my wife, who usually regards LiveJournal as boring whining, liked it a lot. Given your daughter's high school antics, it is hard to predict what she will accomplish, but her writing is excellent.

I read susitna's user info before any of her entries, and I thought she might feel weird about all sorts of people adding her just because of her parents. But then I read her entries, and I understood. She's a damn fine writer.

She learned it from you and Ferrett, I think... but her tales are definately winning.
And I can't remember ever not at least giving heavy consideration to anything recommended on Ferrett's lj.

He definitely has increased the flist of a lot of people by recommending them.

And she does a good job writing. I'm very proud, particularly since three years ago it was all I could do to get her to write a sentence. I remember her yelling at me: "You're the writer, Mom! You can't make me one!"

I don't friend people unless they're well-written and I'm interested in what they have to say. susitna isn't just on my friends list because she's your daughter, or Ferrett's... that's just how I found her.

Oh, she definitely stands on her own - it's just that usually people with only 7 entries haven't been found by quite so many people!

You and Ferrett, and now Erin, are top reads for me.

I can't remember who I put on my LJ Crush meme, but I know Ferrett is there and you probably are too because your posts give me "mind-gasms." ;-)

I'm still nowhere near 175. Blah.

And I'm one of your (intellectual) crushes.

Re: totally O/T

How could you not? I don't use it that often, but every once in a while I trot him out.

[sigh]

He's just as gorgeous in real life.

I thought the same thing and commented as much in theferrett's lj after his 2nd link to one of her entries. I felt weird and creepy adding her because of the age difference, and when I checked the first time, she had about 10, the next time, over 100. So I joined the masses and added her as well. She is a wonderful writer. Of course she (or you for that matter :P) hasn't added me back, so maybe I am creepy!

Bloody hell! Thought I had. Have now.

I don't think she's creeped out at all. Just slow in getting to it. She can only take on reading a limited number of people.

Bwaha!

You didn't have two brilliant, highly read LJers referencing your journal when you started out. Cut yourself some slack. :p

Well, I don't have a crush on you but I'm going to add you to my flist. I already have theferrett and susitna, might as well have the whole family. I really like your style of writing. With both you and Ferrett, no wonder Erin turns out to be a great writer herself.
