classified outreach (pic by me)

First contact

Okay, that last thread might be a little difficult to follow. So I'm not even going to try. Instead I'll just introduce you all to Twiggy the Waterskiing Squirrel.

[waterskiing squirrel picture] Twiggy is here to be random and give you something distracting to look at while I wave my hands and do slightly less entertaining things behind the scenes.

Such as: Admit defeat on friends list updating. There's probably two dozen people reading this journal (or at least who have me friended) that I haven't even noticed. I'm not very good at keeping up with my friend-ofs, because I tend to assume that anyone who wants attention back will speak up and engage me in conversation at some point. It doesn't always sink in that these people might be doing the same thing I am, and sticking to their own journals, where they assume they'll be talked at.

So -- if you're reading this, and I don't comment in your journal at least occasionally, please say hi. Tell me one interesting thing you've discovered or done in the last 48 hours. Or ask me a question. Or posit some interesting piece of philosophy. Or maybe just give me an alfredo sauce recipe.

(By the way, Twiggy says SQUEEK!)

And if you've added me as a friend and I haven't reciprocated, introduce yourself! I probably just haven't noticed you, or noticed you once and then forgot about it before going through one of my quarterly LJ sprees. I don't mean to ignore you; I'm just such a flake. ]B=8) (And you all love me for it, I know.)

As one parting thought: dreamflow now wants a ninja springbok icon, apparently. Any (furry?) artists out there feeling demented and philanthropic?
