With the old year closing, I'm looking for new friends. Well, for any friends, since my friends list consists of only one person at the moment. That is to say, I used to be much more active here on LJ a few years ago, but then this ebil real life had me in its claws, and... yeah. I'm back now.

I'm a 30-something male, stuck in a boring office job, moonlighting as a fitness trainer, and a geek at heart. I love being silly, I love serious conversations (in fact, I love talking a LOT), and I miss the nice conversations that I used to have here.

I'm not really looking for a specific kind of friend, all I require from you is to be open-minded, and not be a dumbass. Seriously. Life is too short for me to deal with internet drama, so any kind of ass-hattery is not allowed on my journal. Other than that, if you have the ability to make me laugh, think, put things in a new perspective, then I'm all for us to get to know each other.

Как избежать конфликтов в праздник?

Новый год коварное время. Ждешь его весь год, мечтаешь, с родственниками договариваешься. А потом какая-нибудь мелочь выводит вас из состояния равновесия, и вот уже праздник безвозвратно испорчен. Так можно ли избежать взаимных обид и нелепых ссор? Некоторые ошибочно полагают, что вес накопленные переживания, напряжение и стрессы можно снять несколькими бокалами холодного шампанского.
Без конфликтов
Что называется, расслабиться и поднять настроение. И в новогоднюю ночь можно запросто с этим переусердствовать. Если же при этом вы долго копили обиды и недовольство, то алкоголь может сыграть с вами злую шутку. Что делать? Старайтесь все же не злоупотреблять шампанским, особенно если чувствуете, что устали или расстроены. Газированные напитки очень легко пьются, и вы совершенно незаметно можете ощутимо перебрать. К тому же они быстрее приводят к опьянению. Поэтому лучше отдать предпочтение вину. И, конечно же, не стоит игнорировать праздничные угощения. Новогодняя ночь не лучший момент садиться на диету.

Sep. 24th, 2012 @ 10:41 pm I invite in friends.
Hello! My name is Andrey. I look for here friends. I live in Russia, I am interested as live in other countries. All I invite to myself in friends. Welcome. My magazine:

Интерактивная кухня.

Компании Indesit, ведущий производись и дистрибьютор крупной бытовой техники в Европе, представила на Международной выставке кухонной мебели EuroCucina-2012 новый интерактивный проект.
Видение комплектации кухни будущего разработано совместно с дизайнерами carlorattiassociat. Уже в начале следующего года Indesit планирует усовершенствовать модели, используя в разработке беспроводное подключение: бытовая техника будет подключена к Интернету. «Не ищите инструкцию для пользования, пытаясь найти удобный для вас режим работы, - вся информация станет доступной с помощью ваших отпечатков пальцев», - объясняет Энрике Сантарелли, член правления и директор по развитию бизнеса Indesit. Виртуальное пространство все больше становится частью нашей жизни. Hotpoint Innovation Area предоставила возможность воочию убедиться в преимуществах интерактивной кухни: люминесцентная стеклянная полоска дает доступ к регулированию и установке различных режимов работы лишь одним прикосновением. Такой интерфейс можно открыть в любом уголке кухни, и он позволит оставаться на связи с компанией Indesit обновлять функции и возможности техники. В будущем мы сможем следить за всем, что происходит в доме, не вставая с дивана.

Current Location: Home
Current Mood: calmcalm
Hi my name is Diego i'm physically 34 (my mental age depends what i am doing bu can range from 15 to 25 {ie I will still laugh at dick and fart jokes ^_^;}) , I live right outside of Ft Lauderdale Florida. I'm senior security analyst for IT firm. Im single, live alone and I tend to be a bit of a walking stereo type for you typical IT computer geek, with that in mind.

I am into variety of stuff including (but not limited to) Games, anime, sci-fi/fantasy, music, movies, computers and stuff like that and occasion a book or two (last book I read was Ready Player One by Ernest Cline) and on occasion something odd happens and i get in my car and go in one direction.. Im like 80% planning and 20% f**k it.

My journal generally is me thinking out loud about what ever is going through my head in a rather conversational manner... which is odd since that would mean i am talking to myself or talking at you.. which isn't cool.. but yeah.. that has nothing to do with anything here.. back to point..

I tend to be more of liberal than conservative, I tend to more pro science and less pro god.. Although in the end I am a live and let live sort of fellow and I find people different than me rather intriguing.

So i may post a few times a week and some times a few times a month but never more than once a day cause I don't want to be that annoying guy..

I will assume if you got this far in the entry that either you think a swell guy or you are a glutton for punishment. Either way thanks!

So what i am looking is for people's personal journals and people who want to be really get to know one another and have windows into one another lives.. but not in a creepy stalker sense.. well maybe a... little it's an personal journal.. you see where im going with this right?

So if your journal is twitter noise, you personal project to become internet famous, or a mommy blog, or your testament of how your significant other shits rainbows.. smells like roses and their nether regions can be thrown into the air to form sunshine.. I more than likely wont be that into it.. although good luck and damn youre lucky it turns into sunshine ^^

That's it.. So if you made it this far and want to be friends let's do it.. and if you don't like me or we don't click i don't take it personal if you drop me and I hope you feel the same way.. but really in a seriousness I hope we can get to know one another and become good friends, k?

Thats it's thanks for your time.. oh and I x-posted this.. don't hate me. ^_^:

I've just come back to my LJ account after a long absence. All the other social networks & blogging sites left me longing for a real community again. I am looking for people that at least post and comment on occasion. No real point in sharing your soul if no one is at least going to read it and comment occasionally, you know what I mean. I do try to comment back as well, I am looking for real interaction.

I am 40 for a few more months.
BBW, a Scorpio, and very open minded.
In my journal you will find:

    - Ramblings
    - Crafty Stuff
    - My Cats
    - Animals in general
    - Spiritualism - or the search for
    - Issues...I suffer with depression and social anxiety
    - Wide variety of interest...check profile for details
    - Sexuality - I am an explorer with an open mind

My interests list on my profile really give you a good idea of who I might be.

So check me out and say hi if you would like. :)

Hi there!

My name is KT Pinto, and I am a published author with a very quiet Live Journal.

Everyone seems to be chatting briefly on other social networks, but I really like Live Journal, and I find it a shame that no one takes the time to read or respond anymore.

Hopefully I'll find more people to chat with through this list!

Aug. 5th, 2012 @ 04:01 pm Hi! *waves*
Current Mood: optimisticoptimistic
I posted this a while back to another friending community, but I just joined here and would love to meet some new people!

Like many people still on LJ, I've noticed my friends list getting quieter because people are moving to FB, twitter or other sites. So, I'm here looking to meet a few new people and find some interesting journals to read.

I'm a married woman who has lived in Kansas nearly all my life (LOVE it here!). I'm 39 years old and have been married to my awesome husband for over 11 years now. We have four of the cutest cockatiels on the planet (and no human children by choice). I work full-time and take college classes (and other non-credit classes) part time. In my spare time, I like to read, knit, drink wine and play the violin.

I decided this year that I would document my daily life of my last year before turning 40, and I've discovered that my life is pretty quiet and routine. I don't mind that. So, my journal this year will be ramblings about my daily life--work, school, home, church--and daily random pictures I come across that amuse me. No politics because that seems like a touchy subject and I prefer to keep my journal pretty laid back.

Since I don't have many friends currently posting, I'm out of the habit of commenting. I'd like to start doing that again. I don't expect people to comment on my entries, but it would be nice to hear from people once in a while.

I look forward to getting to know members of the community!

I'm 41 years old. I've been on LiveJournal for nearly eleven years, and I hardly have any friends left--it's, like, my sister and three other people who post and comment, infrequently at best. Remember when LiveJournal was fun? When you could post a funny little anecdote and have ten comments within minutes? Okay, maybe it wasn't ever like that, but looking at my last several entries, I rarely if ever made it to ten comments, and that's including my replies to friends' comments.

As happens to many people my age, I have become very conservative, which is inconsequential to readers of my journal, because while my political bent might be apparent in my writing, I refuse ever to go explicitly political on LiveJournal. I save that for Facebook. That said, I probably won't get along well with someone who is very political and uses LJ as a soapbox. And, frankly, that goes left and right. A couple years ago, I defriended a guy I'd known since high school, because all he posted was right wing essays, essays I primarily agreed with; I just don't want to get into all that here at LiveJournal. We're saturated enough with it everywhere else.
I was raised Christian, and those values have stuck, but...I have an affinity for darkness and evil, and there's just something funny to me about the concept of the devil.
Here, I write about my life, which has been interesting at times but currently is not so. I have recently moved from Florida to Southern California, where I live with my two small dogs, Zach and Chewie. I have a job that is going nowhere, and it's taking me with it. In spite of my own personal malaise, I make every effort to produce amusing entries, daily if possible.
I like to drink. I don't smoke or do drugs, unless someone offers me cigarettes or drugs. I have no tattoos or piercings. I like all kinds of music, with the exception of jazz, blues, and hip-hop. I'm an ex-comics geek, which means I own a bunch of super hero movies on DVD and buy my comics these days once they're compiled into graphic novel form. There is a framed picture of The Incredible Hulk hanging in my bathroom, on the wall opposite the mirror. Some days I look into that instead of the mirror. SMASH. I still dress the way I did in high school--t-shirt, cargo shorts, Chuck Taylors. If I weren't a giant, people would probably make fun of me. I was in prison for a while a few years ago, and sometimes when I'm drunk and maudlin I write about that, but you'll have to be quick, because I usually depostulate (de-post-too-late--it's mine, but you can use it) those entries when I sober up the next morning. I recently updated the interests on my profile page, so check it out; maybe we have something in common. And look at my icons. They will tell you a lot.

I think I've become an eccentric curmudgeon. I always thought it would be more fun than this. Maybe it's more entertaining to watch. I was chatting with a friend online the other day, and I told him how I'd pulled out my old pellet pistol to shoot at some neighbor's dogs that were dragging trash into my yard. "And then I closed the window and had target practice in the living room," I told him. He didn't respond. "I've lost my fucking mind, haven't I?" I asked him, and he said yeah, probably.

I'm a 32 year old single mom, tomboy--the nerdy kind, gamer & comics type, though generally active physically & really dislike I don't really know many people in real life (socially awkward) so am hoping to find some here :)

I can't really think of much to say about myself so of course you can ask & all that I ask is that you please be open-minded & don't mind slightly morbid humor as it may slip out at times.  Hoping to find some people that can be considered the online version of real friends.

Hi...I am Alison....am over 40 and looking for new friends....

I have been on lj since about 2004 but deleted my old journal because it just died a death as it seemed that everyone I knew either deleted their journals or just gave up posting anything which kinda defeated the object of it all.....anyhow I am trying again but none of the people I know are on lj and Im at a point in my life where I am wanting to meet, read and learn about new people....

I live on my own...well I share the house with a very large tabby cat....in Yorkshire,,,,the house has views of the moors and chickens outside so its kinda rural....

I spend most of my time working....something I don't enjoy and I do complain about it alot but its only to vent so it doesn't let the stress build up :)

In my spare time I go to gigs....I also run a webpage for a local band....I love music - mainly rock, indie, alternative, rockabilly and folk....some of my friends play in a rock band and a skiffle band which makes my other hobby of taking photos easier as I get access to them :)....I love taking photos but again am finding it difficult due to lack of feedback...which I know sounds crazy but I feel that if you don't get criticism or praise you don't grow or learn.

I have recently started making jewellery as well...I am slowly learning on this one and am hoping to sell what I make....well you never know :)

I really would love some new folk to talk to and share their bloglives with....so if you want to add me then please do and I look forward to talking to you :) xx

Why do you think people would enjoy reading and commenting on your posts?
I really don't know why. I don't think I am particularly interesting. I have several really really loyal LJ friends who have been by my side for a very long time. I tend to have this uncanny ability to lose friends left & right & in clusters. I lost a lot of people I considered close after my son died. I'm someone who would enjoy at least getting a heads up when someone is going to delete me, but I tend to get over it. I guess people might enjoy reading something genuine. I am not posting for your entertainment, I am posting because it's my journal & I want to.

Tell us about your life and what you want to do with it:
Right now my focus is raising my kids & preparing for my wedding. I also have a preview show at the theater I was invited to be in. I am looking into getting into college soon. I kind of focused entirely on my family life that I really want to go do something else when all my kids are in school. (My 5 year old will be starting this fall so I'll just have the baby after that.) I'm torn between Criminal Justice/Criminalogy, Psychology or Pharmacy Tech. I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.

If you could swap lives with a person for a week, who would it be and why?
Probably just someone rich who had a maid.. it'd be nice to be waited on for a week. ;P

Make up your own question and answer it:
What is your favorite meal?
Mmmm, I could eat at a Japanese Steakhouse every day & be happy. ;P Rice, carrots, steak, chicken, shrimp, miso soup & salad with ginger dressing. Nom.

Other tidbits:
I am sometimes really terrible about posting & commenting. I can go days. But life is busy & that sometimes happens. I really want to make a connection with someone. :)

Me: 31-year-old woman; divorced; Christian; seminary graduate and youth, family & outreach ministry director at a Lutheran church (I am not a pastor). I have sarcastic tendencies and a quick wit. Intelligent and articulate, even though spelling and I aren't always best friends. Other arch nemeses are early mornings, tea (iced or hot) and calculus. Neglected my LJ during grad school and a move from Ohio to Maryland; however, I am writing more and glad to be back. Karaoke superstar (not entirely in my own mind), and all around music appreciator. I'm a bit geeky at heart, love fantasy/horror TV shows (Supernatural, Grimm, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Being Human, new to Doctor Who, Big Bang Theory, Adventure Time). I can make a sailor blush...not that I've ever tried... Oh - and I know a lot of song lyrics; it's kind of sickening.

You: Someone who likes to laugh (witty banter is deeply appreciated). Enjoy sharing stories about life. Drama is something you watch or it occasionally attacks you - not something you create because it's necessary for survival. Maybe you're religious and maybe you aren't - doesn't matter to me, as I'm not here to evangelize; I will talk about life in the church/my faith. You aren't annoyed when your LJ friends don't post every day or comment on each of your entries. Comfortable in who you are (most of the time).

Please check out my user info. If you think we'd get along - add me - I'll add you back.

Hi all,

I’m a 40 something year old female, interested in meeting people that I can connect and build a friendship with, regardless of age and gender.

I live in the UK with my daughter and granddaughter and I tend to post a lot about them. I have just recently got out of a twelve year relationship and am trying to find myself again and am at long last starting to enjoy life.

I am honest, non-judgmental, easy going, considerate and fairly open minded although I'm not interested in your sexual exploits or drug and alcohol use. I have a good sense of humor and pretty much an open book.

My interests include horror movies, True Blood, Once Upon a Time, American Horror Story, Supernatural, arts and crafts, photography, cooking, music (Florence and the Machine, some QOTSA, Ellie Goulding, Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Marcy Playground, Gorillaz, to name but a few), nature, Spring and Autumn, Xbox 360, mental health (I suffer with BPD, depression and anxiety but I try not to let them define me), knitting, reading, the paranormal, my pets (a dog, a cat and a rabbit) and being a grandma.

I dislike shell fish, being self conscious, washing-up, public transport, offal, my lack of confidence, being too hot, my hands feel dirty, judgementalness, arrogance, ignorance, aggressiveness, closed mindedness, confrontation, bigotry, selfishness.

If you are interested in knowing a little bit more about me then please check out my profile page.

Nov. 12th, 2011 @ 02:20 pm Hi!
My name is George, I'm 42 years old and currently live in Florida although I'm planning to relocate to Pennsylvania in the very near future. I haven't gone looking for new friends in quite a while but lately my friends list has gotten pretty stagnant. I've had this LJ since early 2008 but I've been on LJ altogether since 2003. I may not post every day but try to at least a couple of times a week.

Now a few things about myself: I'm divorced and have an 8 year old daughter who lives with her mother 3 hours away from where I live. I'm currently in a long-distance relationship which is the main reason I'm relocating. I'm between jobs but am studying online for an MBA which I plan to complete in early 2013.

I'm a naturist. I haven't been to any clothing-optional resorts as they are prohibitively expensive for single men and I also have yet to go to a nude beach as there are none near where I live although I'm hoping to get to Haulover Beach in Miami (the only "official" nude beach in Florida) in the near future before I move. Then next summer I'd like to check out Gunnison Beach in NJ.

Other that that, my main interests include reading, watching dvds/Netflix, kayaking and golfing. If you want to know more, take a look at my profile!

Hello! I am new to LiveJournal so of course I am seeking some people to add to my journal! I'm not really sure what I should put in here...

A few random things perhaps?

** I LOVE to read! I have a Kindle & it goes every where with me!

** I am a certified smart ass.

** I try not to take myself (or life) too seriously (refer to icon). 

** I work full time at a job I would consider "ok".

** I am a smoker (of the cigarette variety) & I occasionally drink.

** I would rather spend an evening at home than out at a bar. Although I do enjoy the occasional get together with friends &/or co-workers.

** I love sleep! If I had to choose between anything & sleep, I would choose sleep every time.

** I am a fast learner.

** I am the person that will confront you. Especially if I found out that you have lied to me.

** I love animals more than people. (working with the public, this is easy to do)

**  I love to eat! :-)

** I'm  quite short...only 5'3"

** I like to spend my money on iTunes & coffee!

** I love to hear people laugh.

** I like to "people watch". (no, it's not stalking as I am not watching just 1 person)

I'm still working on my journal. This weekend I will add more info to my profile & actively search for more communities to join. 

If you have any suggestions on communities I should join, let me know!

Thanks for reading & hope to add some of you soon!

I’m here in the anticipation of expanding my friends list with some like-minded and interesting folks. I have mental health issues and for that reason don’t get out very much so I would love some more entries to read to pass the time of day.

I always read my friends entries and comment only when I think I have something valuable to say and when I feel comfortable.

I get along with almost anyone, regardless of age, gender and all that jazz but have to admit that I don’t suffer fools gladly I have a good sense of humour, I’m honest, open minded, caring laid-back and a whole load more desirable qualities to boot.

I seem to post a lot of randomness, which include meme’s, videos and pictures. I also have a nine-week-old granddaughter so expect a bit of baby talk too.

I’m interested in tons of stuff. I know a little bit about a lot but wish I knew a lot about a little. I’m a music lover. I’m heavily into Marcy Playground, PET, Mumford and Sons and Eliza Doolittle at the moment. I also like music from 60’s to the present day.

I like black and white photographs, steam punk, nature, StumbleUpon, flickr, mental health, knitting, drawing, cooking, and abandoned buildings especially asylums and hospitals. I like reading and have just started to read Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.  

I also own four cats, one dog, a rabbit, four rats and fish so as you can see I’m an animal lover. I’d love to own a couple of pigs.

If you would like to know more of my interests, you can take a little look at my profile.

P.S. Please don’t add me just to boost your numbers or if you want someone who comments excessively, as then I’m without a doubt not the person for you.

Hi, I'm Elsh, and I'm looking for more friends. Here's a little bio about

- I'm a 31 year old woman.

- I'm pansexual.

- I'm married to a man.

- I'm dating a woman.

- I'm Californian, but I've been living in New England since 2000.

- I am a mother to 4 cats.

- I sponsor 5 girls through Children International.

- I'm open-minded.

- I have a history of clinical depression and mental illness. These things are pretty well controlled now, but I may have issues from time to time that I might post about (such as anxieties that most people don't have, etc.)

- I try to keep positive, as much as I can, but I'm also very real.

- I'm really, really shy, but quite silly and very kind if you get to know me (well I try to be kind all of the time really).

- I follow friends' journals as much as I can, and enjoy exchanging comments (and adding people who also enjoy exchanging comments).

- I am a loyal friend, hoping to form one or two close friendships.

- I don't have a lot of hobbies or interests (have not figured out what I now enjoy since I have recovered from my depression), but I do enjoy board games, a couple of TV shows and chatting with people when I'm not too scared to do so... also sometimes knitting, studying languages, video games, and more. See my interests list on my profile page if you want to see a more complete list.

- As I mentioned, I do enjoy chatting with friends. It may take me a while to get comfortable enough with you to IM with you, but I would really like to make friends who are interested in IMing at some point. I get lonely a lot, and having a few friends I can chat with really helps.

What my friends say about me is here

- My journal has been friends-only for ages now, so any posts that are public probably aren't a good overall representation of me now, unless they are the 'about me' ones. (And once we add one another, check out my 'about me' tag again, because there are informational posts that are friends only).

- Please don't just add me. Please be polite and comment asking if it's okay to add me, and tell me a little bit about yourself.

Current Mood: hopefulhopeful
Hi. I just returned to LJ after yet another unintended break...I started this journal in 2009 but things got messy and the life-reassessment that birthdays bring happened, so I stopped, since I found myself far too whiny and unhappy. But now I'm in a better place, albeit still working on some things. With any luck, this incarnation of my journalling career won't be quite so morose.

I'm 33, I live in Sydney, although I'm from Melbourne. I work as an instructional designer/technical writer on a contract basis. I used to swing dance but since I moved, I discovered that the swing dance scene up here leaves a lot to be desired from my familiar Melbourne crowd, so I haven't joined in up here. I still paint pictures but I no longer date boys from the internet, although I did meet my bee-loved Captain that way. I miss the community of friends I'd established in Melbourne, hence my return to online journalling.

I've had one hell of a rollercoaster ride as my life. One of my previous entries details the ride in 2007-2009...

I write about work, the people I know and myself quite a bit, but what else is a journal for? Occasionally I might throw in interesting or funny things... who knows.

I'm intelligent, of variable self-esteem, articulate, overweight but working hard on it, balanced, funny, pretty, enigmatic yet somewhat unstable and self-tortured on the inside at times, but I do know myself very well, but I'm always discovering more. I'm loyal, empathetic and compassionate, to a fault in the past, but less so now.

Add me if you'd like... please comment to say that you have. Thanks.

Current Location: Ohio, USA
Current Mood: geeky
Me: A 30-year-old woman. Married with stepson and pets. Christian and recent seminary graduate (no - I am not a pastor). A little sarcastic with a quick wit. Intelligent and articulate, even if spelling and I aren't always best friends. Some other arch nemeses are early mornings, tea (iced or hot) and calculus. Recently neglected my LJ during grad school; however, I am writing more (this is based on my three recent posts). Karaoke superstar (not entirely in my own mind), blues fan and all around music appreciator. A bit geeky at heart and a HUGE fan of accents - especially from Britain/Scotland/Ireland.

You: Someone who likes to laugh. Witty banter is deeply appreciated. Enjoy meeting new people and sharing stories about life. Drama is something you watch or occasionally attacks you - not something you create because it's necessary for your daily routine. Maybe you're religious and maybe you aren't - doesn't matter to me, as I'm not here to evangelize. You aren't annoyed when your LJ friends don't post every day or comment on each of your entries. Comfortable in who you are (most of the time). Geniune, honest and compassionate.

Please check out my user info. If you think we'd get along - add me - I'll add you back.

Edited since my original post. Trust me - this one is better.

I haven't done the self-promoting, "Hey you! Be my LJ friend?" thing in a while so I thought it was time to once again roll out the invitations.

About Me:

- 37 and kinda coming to grips with that is supposed to mean. Married for 16+ years to a remarkable woman and father to two amazing young dudes (14 and 11 years old).

- Music geek literally dialed up to 11.

- I have fits and starts of writing about news and politics but have really laid off that quite a bit in the past year.

- Can get pretty personal in terms of various life struggles and challenges.

- Extremely expressive, massive attention whore, and I post at least every other day and sometimes daily.

- Have had my LJ forever so you won't likely see me drop off or fade away.

- Hockey fan, left of center, not very religious, omnivorous, love swimming and gym visits (especially lately), love my dog and have two cats (note the difference in how they are referenced!), and I still make mix CDs and am old enough to remember making mix tapes.

- I truly love the LJ "experience". I've made fascinating friends over the years, have met some of them in person, and even some who I haven't met face to face yet have become a splendid addition to my life.

So that's some things to know, the rest you'll have to learn provided you're up for it.

Add me and I shall add you back. Thanks!

May. 9th, 2011 @ 01:56 pm Hi!!

Hi everyone! I'm George. I'll cut right to the chase and tell you a few things about myself.

I'm 42.
I live in Tampa, FL.
I'm divorced & have a daughter who is 7 going on 17 who lives with her mom.
I'm bi-curious, flexisexual, heteroflexible, whatever you want to call it.
Never been with another guy but feel like I'm missing out on something.
Currently going to grad school online, working on getting an MBA.
Between jobs. Had the same job for 14 years, got laid off last year & had 3 short-term jobs but still looking for something permanent.
I like sports, reading, travel and outdoor activities.
I post on everything from mundane, everyday stuff to my sexual feelings/desires/aspirations, although those are filtered. If you add me & want to be included in the filter, let me know!
Check out my profile for anything I've left out. Otherwise, don't hesitate to ask! :)

It's been forever since I've written one of these (so please bear with me). I've been on LJ since before 2005.. imagine! Like many of us, I'm sure Facebook has slowly dragged us away. I miss the daily posts. I miss the updates. I miss my place to vent I think. I am not an avid updater - but I do try to get something in at least once/week.

About me:

♦ Canadian
♦ happily married
♦ no kids (only the 4 legged type)
♦ happy mom to a 2-1/2 yr old Great Dane
♦ happy mom to 2 crazy kitties as well (they think we're crazy because we brought the dog into their home!)
♦ mostly happy with life, even though we're going through a rough patch lately
♦ insanely passionate about animal welfare and rights
♦ watch too much tv (we watch a lot.. just started Mad Men in fact!)

I think that gives enough to give you an idea. I'm easy to get along with - I think :)

sort of new here, mostly looking for add some cool people to my friends list. I started this journal last year and forgot about it, but now I have more time to post, so I'm going to give it another shot.

I'm 30 something.
I live on the west coast of B.C. and love it here.
I'm a Dad
I'm a photographer (looking for other amateur photographers)
I have a great sense of humour
I'm proud to be Canadian.
I love food
I love my family
I love beer
I love myself
I love the people in my life.
I love the Simpsons
I love the internet.
I'm cute
I plan on writing about lot's of things, mostly photography though, but knowing myself I will probably blog about what is going on in my life good and bad.

Don't know what else to say, I hate doing these things, but maybe this will bump up my friends list a little bit. (BTW) if you are a negative person and very judgmental or get offended easily you might want to move on.

Apr. 28th, 2011 @ 05:34 pm (no subject)

My name is Margaret, I’m nearly 37 (although I don’t always act it) and I need new lj friends. I am returning to lj after getting bored of facebook and my friends page looks a little empty.

My interests are:

  • Books - sci fi/fantasy, horror, thrillers - I’ll read pretty much anything except romance
  • TV Shows - Fringe, Being Human, Primeval, NCIS and (my guilty pleasure) Glee
  • Hobbies - knitting, sewing, bobbin lace, card making

I sometimes mention TMI girlie stuff and dieting, in case anyone finds such things objectionable.

Anything else you want to know, just ask.

Hi everyone! I am looking for friends that are around age 30 and over.

A little about me:

I am female. Self employed. I turned 35 at the end of January. I have been on LJ since 2002. About 9 years! I average writing 3-5 entries per week.

I am engaged to be married to my partner of over 8 years. He and I recently relocated. Before our move I had exotic fish in a saltwater aquarium as my pets. I am also a cat-lover. ♥ I assemble jigsaw puzzles, have a rock tumbler and keep myself busy with other random crafts, novice gardening and other projects. :)

About my journalCollapse )

For as long as this post is visible, if it's 2 weeks or 5 years, I am open to adding. Thanks for reading!
