So.

::whistles nervously, looks around room::

I was wasting time updating important things today, and in the process, was reviewing my flist on LJ, Facebook and Twitter. I got to pondering. Yeah, I know, It's dangerous when I start thinking, but I get struck by these ideas, like a Mack Truck, they just come out of nowhere and kick me in the back of the head and, well. There it is.

Why did you "Friend" me?

I've seen meme's where people ask things like that before, but I've never done any of them. For some reason though, while I was nosing around today I got all introspective and curious, and well, maybe a little nervous about even asking in case, you know, someone thinks, "Hey? Why *am* I her friend, anyway?" and decides they've had enough of that and defriend me. I can't seem to help it. Just call me Meredith.

(Shut up n7cdrsheppard, and stop laughing at me, or I will make you pay.)

So. Any takers? I don't expect an essay - I was just wondering.

I friended you to get to know you better after you helped me at Pondfilk with my song. We share interests in Filking, fandom and kid stories. I look forward to reading your posts, and love seeing your whimsical photo posts with your stories. Your fun creativity inspires me to be more interactive in cool ways with my own family.

Hee! I enjoy reading your posts about Sparkle and Dino, your family adventures and your stuff with teaching the tough kids.

I'm glad you think I'm creative! I often think I'm pretty boring and mundane, so that's nice to hear! *grin*

Conflikt I

I went around peering at all the people I could find (not nearly as many as were there) and then kept the people I liked reading.

Ah-ha!

I think for Conflikt *next* year, we should have little ribbons people can put on their badges that say [lj user=""] (only with pointy brackets of course)

You friended me first, and I recognized you from con.

Ha! I remember when I first met you - it was when you came with your mom to Treefilk at solomons_pond's place in Olympia. And you sang, and I remember thinking, "That's so cool!"

And now you're all growed up. Man, between watching fanish kids grow up around my and having my eldest turn 20 in less than I month, I am feeling old today.

I really liked what you did at the Atlanta house filk we two Canadians made it to, and then REALLY liked songs you did at VCon, even about shows I've never seen and books I've never read. And you are fun to be around. I usually only 'friend' filkers I've actually met and liked!

Hah! That's right, we met in Atlanta! Funny that two Canucks should meet up at a housefilk in another country, n'est-ce pas?

I'm so glad that you made it to VCon - fortuitous timing, that. Even if working hospitality meant I had to duck out on you guys.

I'm really glad that you enjoyed my stuff, even if you don't know the reference material. Unfortunately, I'm not going to make it to FKO this year, but hopefully next.

*laughs* I honestly can't remember who friended who first- it was probably me, and probably because of a lot of shared fandoms and you were semi-local, at the time!

Also I do the same thing sometimes, with the wondering, cause there's so many cool people on my friendslist and I'm like "omg why are they here when most of what I do is whine".

Feb. 21st, 2009 11:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I can't remember either. Mostly what comes to mind about you is. "ahh, that cute, amusing youngster!" when I think about you.

*snicker*

I am old enough that I get to say that. So shush.

Also, I love the Young!Rodney icon. Mmm, he was such a pretty, pretty boy.

I friended you because you like "Mer" as much as I do (maybe more?) and wanted to be able to read your comments on SGA and other things. I also like reading your fanfic and hearing about your filking.

Basically, you are a person with very interesting ideas and I want to keep up with those that you choose to reveal.

*Maybe* more? Surely you jest. Hello, you have seen the back of my tee-shirt, right? Yis. Super sekrit boyfriend and all. Heh.

Aww, I'm glad that you like reading my stuff. Even if the SGA fic tends to be slashy. *grin* I think you're pretty interesting too!

I friended you because I like to hear you sing! And I wish you could come down to the Seattle housefilks more often. Plus, you do such a smashing job of running hospitality at Conflikt. That's a very important job, you know. Foood, mmmmm, goood.
shaddyr
Feb. 21st, 2009 11:55 pm (UTC)
Hee! Well, thank you!

I wish I could get to housefilks more often as well. And I love running hospitality - this year was fabulous because I actually got out of there and down to events every day. It was amazing!

I think we met last year at Conflikt; I don't remember which of us friended the other first.

Actually, I think I was reading the FriendsFriends list, and I came across something you had written that touched me deeply. I started following your posts then. And you posted an open question, something inviting people to leave an anonymous response about things that had happened in their lives. I responded to it, and whatever it was you said back almost made me cry because it was so understanding and encouraging.

So. I've sort of been stalking you ever since. I hope you don't mind.

Talking to you at Norwescon in 2008 about Filk and Fandom.

For some reason I thought that I had met you *before* that.

*think, think, think*

Ahh, I remember. You reminded me a lot of a gal I know trhough fandom in Vancouver, a HP fan. When I first met you, I thought that you were her.

Aw crap! Damn you McKay! How did you know?! OMG, I really was. Still snickering...

I *know* because I. R. Smart. Ms Coulda-been-in-Mensa. You are lucky I like you.

Now don't quote me McKay

Oh, you just *know* that I have to now!

but yes, you're kinda cool. Not like surfing a thirty foot wave in Waimea kind of cool, but pretty darn cool.

Well. Yes. Of course I am. I knew that. Really?

*grin*

Now don't start getting a complex over this

WHY must you SAY things like this? You KNOW that it virtually guarantees that I have to examine it to death, beat a dead horse and then my complex will get a complex. You do this just to torment me, don't you? Don't even try to lie!

you are a blast to hang out with (and I don't mean blowing things up)

Isn't blowing things up *your* department? *snicker*

OMG I MISS YOU!!! YOU ARE TOO FAR AWAY! *cries*

"I was just wondering" - Sure, sure. What you're doing is fishing for complements. So:
I friended you 'cause you are (in no particular order), an excellent writer, a fabulous singer, and tremendous fun to hang around with. I don't get to do that nearly as much as I'd like now that I've moved across the narrow water, so this will have to do.
There ya go.

I admit nothing.

And also, I think you're pretty nifty too. Hee!

Because you helped me break my con virginity and concealing that fact by convincing me that helping run a con would be a good idea :)

now look what you've created mwhohahahahha
shaddyr
Feb. 22nd, 2009 12:33 am (UTC)
BWAHAHA!

Do you *know* how many people I've done that to? Heh. I just dragged a con virgin to Conflikt. She is well and truly hooked now. I'm evil like that.
