Back to School Friending Meme Extraordinaire!

I have always wanted to do a friending meme in my journal! Why? Because friending memes are super cool, and I am not gonna lie, every time somebody posts one, I think, "Damn, I should have done that."

So I am doing it now! The entry is public, so please, share!

Copy and paste this into a comment and let your colors show! *

* We here at the [livejournal.com profile] rhetoricians friendstravaganza experience make no guarantees regarding the caliber or quality of potential friend candidates, only that she has some awesome friends and wants to share them and make some new ones!

Of course, for this to work, it has to be shared! Here is a link to the HTML code for the sharing portion of our fair meme!

ETA: The HTML code should link back to this entry now! I am a huge derp. Please post away! (there might be a spare "div" in there but if you just delete it it'll be A-OK).

What zodiac sign are you? Do you put much stock in that sort of thing?: I'm a Gemini. While it's fun to think about once in a while, I don't put much stock in it at all.
Are you in any of the Harry Potter landcomms here on LJ? (HiH, H_E, etc)? What house? I'm a member of the [livejournal.com profile] hogwartsishome community. I was sorted as a Hufflepuff there, but I consider myself a Ravenclaw through and through.
Location (or a close approximation): Missouri, United States
Job/year in school: I'm currently a full-time student, pursuing a degree in sociology/anthropology with minors in women's and gender studies and disability studies.
Favorites lightning round!
Favorite...
Movies: Honestly, with my Netflix membership having been going strong for a year now, my favorite movies are generally the ones I've watched most recently. A Single Man, Sympathy for Delicious, An Education, I Love You Phillip Morris, Exit Through The Gift Shop... Long time favorites include Bablel, The Aviator, and Dead Poets Society.
Books: If you hadn't guessed by my username, Kurt Vonnegut is my favorite author. Other favorite writers of mine include Jeanette Winterson, Oliver Sacks, Alan Lightman, and Derrick Jensen. Some other favorite books of mine are The Stranger by Albert Camus, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness by Kay Redfield Jamison, and American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis.
Video games: I don't play a lot of video games. I have an X-Box 360 and occasionally play Left 4 Dead and Plants vs. Zombies, but I definitely need some recommendations. Oh, Arkham Asylum is good too.
TV shows: I'm a fan of the Discovery channel, the Food Network, the History Channel, and some shows on Bravo and Lifetime. Shows like Iron Chef America, Top Shot, Project Runway, One Man Army, American Pickers, and things like that are my favorite.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "what the fuck is a fandom?" and 10 being "I love so many fandoms!" how much is your LJ an expression of your love for fandoms?: Maybe a two or a three. Occasionally I'll get in a "mood" and have an entry mostly-devoted to something that's on my mind (usually the X-Men), but this isn't frequent at all. I'm not really a card-carrying member of any fandoms. I don't do the whole fandom thing, and I don't understand very much about others either.
If money was no object (eg: every career made the same amount annually), what job would you have? (Don't say anything lame like "no job" or "professional lazyass" - dig deep, people!): I'd still want to do very much the same thing that I want to do right now -- be some kind of advocate or legal counsel for the LGBTQQIAA community or people with disabilities. Maybe I'd like to be a psychologist who deals with issues related to those two groups, too. Either way, I'd really like to be involved in either the legal or the healthcare field and I'd definitely like to work with one or both of those groups.
What does the subject matter of most of your LJ entries seem to focus on? (eg: real life, fandom stuff, writing, graphics, etc): Most of my journal is related to real life events, or introspection about things that are going on currently or have been on my mind a lot lately. It isn't fandom stuff and it isn't graphics. Occasionally there'll be some photographs I've taken, or just some snapshots that compliment what I want to talk about at the time. But mostly it deals with what's going on in my life right then, and what's pertinent on my mind.

What are you looking for in a new friend? Do you care about how often people comment?: I'd enjoy having friends who are somewhat like-minded, or who can appreciate some of the things I do. I enjoy having things to contribute when other people post, and I like receiving comments to my own posts. However, I'm not a stickler about that at all and would prefer that anyone who adds me not be the type to count comments and do friends' cuts based on who hasn't contributed "enough." That kind of thing is stressful and I will often read without really having very much to say. It doesn't mean I'm not paying attention, though! I like it when people write about what's going on in their lives and post thoughtful and introspective entries, rather than just daily lists of, "I did this, I did that." As I said, I'm not much into fandom and I probably won't understand a lot if that's what I constantly am reading about. Honest, open people who want to share themselves and read what others share are ideal.

Not gonna lie, it was the Anderson Cooper gif that lured me in. And the fact you're not dumping people for "not contributing" enough. Anyway, I'm not sure if we're like-minded but once I get my law degree I'd love to do something useful with it - like you. I don't post very often, and my entries all end up being 'private' after a while, so chances of me spamming your f-list are close to 0. So, want to be friends?

That last graphic is brilliant and I'm saving it right now. I also took a gander at your userinfo and have to say how cool it is that you're getting your pilot's license. It's something that I've always wanted to do, but I'm actually not sure that I meet the requirements to do so. My dad has his private pilot's license and owned a Cessna 175 when I was growing up, and I've always loved flying. He sold that plane and bought one off of Ebay (!!!) to fix up, but I don't think he's touched it in years. I still wish he would, though. I'm also a bit neurotic and I have a bad tendency to ramble. You sound really interesting and we have a few friends in common already. Would you mind if I added you?

Somewhat. If you have nothing to say to me, that's fine, but I'd like to if you would try to comment to a fair amount of the comments I leave in your journal. I get that life gets busy (I mean, I finally have time to read some LJ as I'm home "early," it's 11pm here right now), but LJ, to me, is pointless without any communication. If I wanted no communication I wouldn't have a [mostly public] online journal.

Are you in any of the Harry Potter landcomms here on LJ? (HiH, H_E, etc)? What house? No, only because the applications are extensive and when I do have free time I either don't remember or don't feel like filling filling them out, ahah. Some day I will.

Favorite...
Movies: Favorite movie of all time is Clue. Other favorites are Major League, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Little Big League, and the Harry Potter series even though they annoyed me because they strayed so far from the books' plot.
Books: Again, Harry Potter is numero uno. I also love My Sister's Keeper and everything else by Jodi Picoult, Of Mice and Men, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Pride and Prejudice... I love reading.
Video games: I don't play video games as much as I used to, but when I do it's LEGO Harry Potter (seeing a theme? :p) or one of the eight thousand Mario games.
TV shows: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and South Park are the only ones I really keep up with. I do watch others but not regularly.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "what the fuck is a fandom?" and 10 being "I love so many fandoms!" how much is your LJ an expression of your love for fandoms?: Eh, 2? I mainly post about sports (baseball mostly) which I don't really consider a "fandom". The only "fandom" I really post about is Harry Potter.
If money was no object (eg: every career made the same amount annually), what job would you have? (Don't say anything lame like "no job" or "professional lazyass" - dig deep, people!): What I'm currently doing/going to school for, which is working with and helping animals. It'd be nice if there was more money in it, though, ahah.
What does the subject matter of most of your LJ entries seem to focus on? (eg: real life, fandom stuff, writing, graphics, etc): Real life, sports, Harry Potter, the occasional meme.
What are you looking for in a new friend? Do you care about how often people comment?: I don't care about comments - well, that's a lie, really. I do care because I like to know that people are reading, but I don't expect comments on every entry. I'd prefer friends that I can relate to and that post somewhat regularly.

Hello, everyone!

Name (or what you go by on LJ): Sam(antha)...but even my parents call me "Sam".
Age: 22 years plus about 9 months
What zodiac sign are you? Do you put much stock in that sort of thing?: I'm a Sagittarius. I don't check my horoscope, but I do tend to find the profiles and elements associated with a person's birth to be rather accurate a lot of the time. Certainly fun reading if nothing else! :D
Are you in any of the Harry Potter landcomms here on LJ? (HiH, H_E, etc)? What house? No, although I read fics from time to time and still totally ship HP/TMR. XD I used to be in the HP fandom when I was younger so I still like nerding out with other HP fans on occasion. *grin* I also took this well-made quiz (http://www.helloquizzy.com/tests/the-sorting-hat-a-comprehensive-harry-potter-personality-assessment-testquiz), and I am in Ravenclaw/
Location (or a close approximation): New Hampshire, USA
Job/year in school: I finished my undergrad in history (areas of concentration: Modern England [especially the Victorian/Edwardian Eras], Western theatre—and many other areas of interest besides these <3 ) at the University of New Hampshire this past May, and I'm now working full time as an IT Analyst so that my bills get paid and other responsible things like that. Plus, I need to support my book and tea addiction somehow.

Books: Nuu, don't make me choose! But if my house were burning, and I could only save two books, they'd be Good Omens (by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett) and Cunt by Inga Muscio
Video games: I don't play any, and I don't particularly like them. But I poke Minesweeper once in awhile so does that count, haha?
TV shows: Xena: Warrior Princess. And cartoons. Some of the older ones like Recess, Invader Zim, and Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Part II because I'm a wordy little thing. XD

/>On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "what the fuck is a fandom?" and 10 being "I love so many fandoms!" how much is your LJ an expression of your love for fandoms?: 6. I'm not much into fandom anymore though I was when I was younger, and I still have a soft spot for it (in moderation). I tend to write historical slash and angel/demon slash based off of Judeo-Christian mythology so does that count as fandom? XD Also yaoi and yuri = <3<3<3
If money was no object (eg: every career made the same amount annually), what job would you have? (Don't say anything lame like "no job" or "professional lazyass" - dig deep, people!): I would like to hold a museum position, like a specialist in a certain area of history (such as Victorian England) or a general assistant curator type of gig. Then on the side I'd like to be a self-publishing author with my own small self-run publishing house.
What does the subject matter of most of your LJ entries seem to focus on? (eg: real life, fandom stuff, writing, graphics, etc): My journal got a recent reboot so there aren't too many entries yet, but topics I have/will likely ramble about are, in no particular order: cats, making zines, travel, sexuality, writing, tea, my job/life, occasional bits about BDSM, and nerdy pursuits like RP and anime. Besides that, I get involved with activist work, particularly LGBT and feminism, and I am very pro-choice. I'm also an asexual lesbian, an agnostic, and childfree so that comes up from time to time as well.
What are you looking for in a new friend? Do you care about how often people comment?: *points up* Eh, I guess please don't be vehemently opposed to the last two sentences of my previous answer? I don't want to see updates about religious/conservative politics or posts that are predominantly about raising children on my flist. No offense, but that stuff just isn't my cup of tea. Otherwise I'm pretty chill. As for comments, a few comments a month would be nice so I at least know you're still reading. I know RL can be awfully distracting, but I do like to interact with the different people on my flist.

Movies:
Amelie, 300, William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Donnie Darko, Labyrinth
Books: The Dresden Files, The Last Herald Mage Trilogy, Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles, Harry Potter
Video games: Star Control 2, Mario 2, and Evo:Search for Eden, Fallout 3, and Portal, Final Fantasy

On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "what the fuck is a fandom?" and 10 being "I love so many fandoms!" how much is your LJ an expression of your love for fandoms?: I would like a fandom if, you know, it’s a fandom I like?
If money was no object (eg: every career made the same amount annually), what job would you have? (Don't say anything lame like "no job" or "professional lazyass" - dig deep, people!): Artist/painter/sculptor/writer :D
What does the subject matter of most of your LJ entries seem to focus on? (eg: real life, fandom stuff, writing, graphics, etc): Real life, fan art that I drew… stuff like that!
What are you looking for in a new friend? Do you care about how often people comment?: Similar interests are great, but please note that I feel very strongly about the pro-choice abortion stance and women’s rights, and I will not get along with a pro-life person. Must be open-minded about things like gender and sexuality too. I’m not exactly straight. No, I don’t have any particular commenting requirements, but I prefer if I get to know you because if you can see all my entries and never ever post anything or comment, that can be a little awkward for me. :P

Age: 25
What zodiac sign are you? Do you put much stock in that sort of thing?: Sagittarius and no
Are you in any of the Harry Potter landcomms here on LJ? (HiH, H_E, etc)? What house? No

Movies: A Knight's Tale, The Three Musketeers, The Secret Garden, Dirty Dancing
Books: Good Omens, The Bible According to Biff, anything by Agatha Christie
Video games: Resident Evil, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Shadow Hearts
TV shows: Leverage, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Psych, Burn Notice, Hawaii 5-O, Star Trek ... (The list just goes on and on)
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "what the fuck is a fandom?" and 10 being "I love so many fandoms!" how much is your LJ an expression of your love for fandoms?: I'd say 5
If money was no object (eg: every career made the same amount annually), what job would you have? (Don't say anything lame like "no job" or "professional lazyass" - dig deep, people!): I'd try out every job I could get my hands on. Seriously. I get bored if I have to do the same thing for more than a few years, so being able to switch jobs whenever I feel like learning something new, because I'd never have to worry if I earn enough money for my family, would be like my own personal heaven.
What does the subject matter of most of your LJ entries seem to focus on? (eg: real life, fandom stuff, writing, graphics, etc): My real life, which (if it's not an entry concerning some personal crisis) tends to at least mention something about my fandoms.
What are you looking for in a new friend? Do you care about how often people comment?: I'm looking for someone who shares my interest. Someone I could even talk to outside of LJ without it getting awkward. Comments would be nice, at least from time to time. I usually don't comment every post a person makes on ther LJ Site, but I try to add at least something from time to time, even if i's only so they know, that I still think of them. I did add them after all.

Your response to the question about what job you would have makes you sound very much like me. Easily bored by too much of the same thing and wanting new experience and skills.

May I add you?

(the html CONFUSED me so I just copied and paste from another entry on here so that's why I don't have the boldness :P)

Name (or what you go by on LJ): Gail is fine..
Age: 27.5 Scared yet excited for 30. It's as if a life changing event happends when you turn 30 so I'm anxious to see what all the fuss is all about

What zodiac sign are you? Do you put much stock in that sort of thing?: I am a Capricorn and I desperately try to find the Cap in me but I find very little if any. Horrorscopes are fun fluff things to read; but that's about it

Are you in any of the Harry Potter landcomms here on LJ? (HiH, H_E, etc)? What house? I don't know an OUNCE about HP (nor do I much care tbh!)

Location (or a close approximation): Michigan. Yes, I like it. I LOVE it actually :)

Job/year in school: I'm a waitress/bartender with a BA in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing. I love my degree and I love/hate my job

Favorite...
Movies: Dirty Dancing is my all time favorite. I watch it about once a week. Runners up are Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Save the Last Dance, anything ridiculously funny that doesn't star Will Farrell
Books: Anything that Judy Blume has penned.
Video games: I never got past Super Nintendo. I bought my ex a Wii but hardly played it.I'm always down for a game of Mario Go Kart though :)
TV shows: all those reality shows on MTV (Teen Mom, Jersey Shore, Real World), Big Brother, reality shows on TLC as well, any true crime show (COPS, Criminal Minds, First 48, etc), Jerseylicious :P

On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "what the fuck is a fandom?" and 10 being "I love so many fandoms!" how much is your LJ an expression of your love for fandoms?: 1!

If money was no object (eg: every career made the same amount annually), what job would you have? (Don't say anything lame like "no job" or "professional lazyass" - dig deep, people!): I'd LOVE to be a team mascot! I've been a character for grand openings of stores before (a Care Bear, Chester the Cheetah) and it was SO FUN! I got to act ridiculous and make kids laugh. Plus, I'd get PAID to watch sports :P

What does the subject matter of most of your LJ entries seem to focus on? (eg: real life, fandom stuff, writing, graphics, etc): TBH, single life but in a non depressing way. Mostly a recap of the guys I'm "dating" (I use that term loosely), friend drama, etc. It's a big place to vent for me. But I swear my journal doesn't suck as much as I make it out to be!

What are you looking for in a new friend? Do you care about how often people comment?: Comments are indeed nice because it's like "Oh, you really give a damn about what I say" I'd prefer friends that are in least 2nd year college, although I think it'd be fun to read about the life of a college freshman. Simialr interests are necessary (I think my profile is actually a "fake" profile...I'm using a layout that someone posted in a layout community and the link in the profile is a generic one) I like when friends do surveys because I really like learning about people. =)

Movies: The Lord of the Rings (all), Star Wars: A New Hope, Harry Potter & the PoA, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Porco Rosso.
Books: LotR, The Silmarillion, HP, The Arthur Trilogy, Good Omens, Interview With the Vampire, Memory and Dream, the Nausicaa manga.
Video games: None-- i'm not a gamer.
TV shows: MythBusters, Ghost Hunters/ -International, Ghost Adventures, No Reservations, Destination Truth... & if we're going to talk "not on anymore," Digimon 01 & 02, & Yu-Gi-Oh were part of my childhood that have recently been resurfacing (don't judge me; i grew up on old-school anime). And i would love it if i could watch The Magic School Bus again or something. Oh, also Mystery Science Theater 3000.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "what the fuck is a fandom?" and 10 being "I love so many fandoms!" how much is your LJ an expression of your love for fandoms?: A one. I haven't been "in" a fandom for a while now.
If money was no object (eg: every career made the same amount annually), what job would you have? (Don't say anything lame like "no job" or "professional lazyass" - dig deep, people!): Um. Um. Um. I honestly don't know.
What does the subject matter of most of your LJ entries seem to focus on? (eg: real life, fandom stuff, writing, graphics, etc): Real life.
What are you looking for in a new friend? Do you care about how often people comment?: I guess i do appreciate people who comment; i also honestly tend to get along better with people whom i have things in common. If you make fun of me, i kind of want to turn myself off to you. I also probably would have difficulty with people who are super conservative &/or religious: i'm pretty liberal, i guess (human rights is a big thing for me, & women's rights is a big part of that), & i still have yet to master the art of actually having a level-headed argument. So, i mean, for example, if you think queer people are going to hell or are evil or something (queer, i'm using as an umbrella term, here), or that a woman's life & body are to be dictated by men/the government/anyone but themselves, we're not going to be friends.

(Don't say anything lame like "no job" or "professional lazyass" - dig deep, people!): I'm doing my dream job! I don't want to work until my kids are grown.

What are you looking for in a new friend?
