I hate this part. I was born. I am alive right now. Eventually I will die. The rest is trivia.

The other part I really hate: People who "friend" me without identifying themselves. I have a different definition of "friend" than LJ does. I will NOT automatically "friend" you back, especially if your user name gives me no clue as to whether I might already know you. You want to poke around in my journal, pray have the common courtesy to drop me a note and introduce yourself. Now that LJ actually has a messaging feature, you have no excuse.

Because I unfortunately appear to attract weird like a magnet, most of this journal is friend-locked at this time.

For my part, this is called being street smart. I get enough New Bestest Friends stalking me on my instant message service because I answered a question for them on a public forum once or via my website.

For your part, O Reader, it demonstrates common courtesy and requires you to make an effort to prove that you are genuinely interested, especially in those cases when I have gone and looked at your profile and thought, "Who IS this? We have nothing in common. Why has this person friended me?"

My journal, my rules.

Oh, and what part of the word "curmudgeon" did you not understand?
