Adding a bunch of people to the friends list that I find interesting or informative at the moment.
I always feel odd doing this becuase so many people feel they *must* reciprocate.
They don't. I just want to read your public entries becuase something caught my eye.
No need to feel the same about me.

Also, I'm exceedingly capricious.
So it stands to reason that in 3 weeks I may find what you have to say pretty boring and don't want it cluttering up my friends page. It isn't personal. In *no way* is it personal. I'm just not in the mood to read what you've got to say at the time.

The "friends list" is horribly named.
I like the think of it as my "linked to" page... or "journals of interest" page ... it's my own little easy access links page, that's all.
It.
Finito.

Of course, there are some people on my friends list that I honestly dig as people and as writers.
But that's just a co-winky-dink.

yeah!
I think.

Funny post to catch since I haven't read your journal in ages...life can be funny, no?
"Capricious"...great word.

So, is there anybody who you dig as a people and a writer, who isn't on your friends list? Well, aside from the obvious case, at least.

How's the obvious case?
And... do you mean people on LJ or people in general?

The obvious case is people who don't have a livejournal.

Yeah there are a few... but most of them I'm in communities with, and they say all their interesting stuff *there*.
I've gone and looked at their personal journals and found that I'd much rather just read their rants on debate.

Some people are only fascinating in their interactions with others.
Others are made boring by having any *actual* contact with thim.
