I really like Friending Memes. But at the same time most of the ones I see are fandom based. Since so little of my journal is specific fandoms and more...random photos of invertebrates I always feel a little awkward in them. But I have been looking for some new people. Maybe I should just jump in the water and see if I float?

Someone on my flist pimped another friending meme yesterday. The host of the meme gives you an option of what sort of questions you want to answer and you can find friends based on what their journals are about:

There is a section for fandom-based journals or real-life journals or a mixture of both; you just pick the corresponding copy & paste box & go from there :)

ooh, thanks. I've actually ended up doing both. LJ has been a bit quiet the last few months.

I've given up on friending memes as nobody ever wants to be my friend.

Hope you're doing okay. Do I need to send my highly trained team of flying monkey's to come rescue you from soccer mom hell yet?

They're really hit&miss for me. I always answer the questions the EXACT same way every time...sometimes I'll gain 10 friends from one meme and then I'll do 5 memes in a row and not make a single friend. Who knows what people are thinking? And it's THEIR LOSS if they don't friend you because you're awesome.

(I was thinking of doing a friending meme over @ pick_for_me. Not til June or July. I thought it might be helpful do a friending meme in a very specific comm where everyone has at least ONE interest--and quite possibly more--in common. Not 100% sure yet, but I'm seriously considering it.)

Ugh the training itself isn't so bad, I'm catching on and don't have any problems keying the example orders we have to do but one of my arch-nemiseses (arch-nemisi?) is in the class and SHE'S DRIVING ME INSANE.

(Long story short: we were BFF's for a couple years then she abruptly stopped talking to me. I asked her why and she said it was just her mood...then she sent me what amounted to a "Dear John" letter saying she couldn't be friends with me any more because she started dating this guy and she "doesn't have the attention span" to have a boyfriend AND a regular friend at the same time. It's a hilarious letter, I still have it. Needless to say, I was all "welp have a nice life" and you better not have a kid since you probably couldn't deal with a significant other and a kid at the same time, we don't need any more neglected children in the world. They got married 3 months later & divorced after being married for 6 months (they went right out after they got married & bought a house, all new furniture for it, expensive pedigreed dogs and 3 brand new vehicles...on her paycheck alone, because he didn't have a job. I know what I make and I know she makes less than me because she hasn't worked here as long. I can't even afford a used car lol. They went bankrupt, had to sell everything and got divorced. She said in class that she just bought a house with a guy she's been dating less than a year, so that will prolly work out great. I've also come to learn that her interests are exactly the same as the person she's hanging out with and then they change as she moves on. When we were friends, she loved hockey & swimming & basically everything I liked and she haaaaaaaaaaaaated people who drank alcohol. Then when she started dating that guy, she was all about monster trucks and camping and going out drinking. Now she seems to be a fan of baseball & football & tattoos. So weird.)

BUT ANYHOO (wow, tangent much?) I don't know why she's in the class. She already knows how to do these types of orders & is taking it for a refresher. As a result, she interrupts the instructor AFTER EVERY SENTENCE, it is so ridiculous. And she says things like "are we going to teach them how to do _____?" and "we better not forget to tell them about this!" If someone has a question, she jumps out of her chair and sprints over to that person to answer it, even when you specifically address the instructor by name and ask for the instructor's help. I want to scream CAN YOU JUST KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT FOR 5 MINUTES, PLEASE???? Cause she hasn't gone that long without talking since the class started on Tuesday.

Errr so yeah, send me those flying monkeys ;)

That girl sounds like an utter horror and that letter she sent you sounds completely ridiculous.
How is it not possible to maintain a friendship when you have a boyfriend? I mean did it suddenly mean that once she was in a relationship she had to spend all day staring at her boyfriend or pictures of her boyfriend in case she lost concentration and forgot who he was or something? How much attention span is required to hang out with two different people??? Seriously, what is this madness?! I actually think it's really weird and sad that she would cut a friend out of her life like that and it's even sadder seeing that the relationship went on to be a big mess.
I don't get people that have to like everything that their friends/partner does either. I mean it's great to have things in common with people but I can't imagine there are many people in life that like exactly the same things or hobbies all of the time.
She seems kind of insecure and needy to be honest which might explain her trying to be the center of attention all the time while in your class. I would be silently fuming at all her constant interrupting though and if nothing else it's insanely rude to the instructor.
Hopefully you won't be stuck with her for too long.
Until then I've rounded up my flying monkeys and I've taken the most thoughtful step of arming them with cattle prods too... ;)

Oh, and bless you for trying to make me feel better for being such a meme failure. *lol*
I have occasionally used/browsed them to find new Lj friends but even when I do come across people that share a few of the same interests and fandoms as me once I've added them we very rarely seem to communicate. I guess everyone uses Lj differently but for me I can't see the point of adding someone to your f-list and never actually conversing with them and I find a few people in memes just want to bump up their friends count.
