OK - I know there's been quite a few of these in recent months, but here's another one.  Following a post by a friend of mine (both real life and LJ), I've decided to host a friendzy.  It's for people looking for active LJ friends, as so many people have now migrated to Facebook etc.  Post a comment, with a description of yourself and what you're looking for - and I'll poach [livejournal.com profile] elven_ranger's sentiments of......keep it civil, dont post links advertising the latest fake viagra, and if you want to be rude to someone, do it elsewhere (I have a delete finger, and I ain't afraid to use it!)   And dont forget to share the link so that more people can join in - spread the word!



PS:  I won't add my own details on here - but anybody who's interested can find them on my User Info......

Hello, I am the friend that was complaining to [livejournal.com profile] goffburd about a lack of new folk on her LJ...so I shall be putting my money where my mouth is and spreading the word!

Anyway, as for me, I am a 32 (am I really 32?) year old woman living in York, UK. I work in various capacities, such as student mentor/amanuensis, English tutor, and proof-reader/editor, plus I write a lot of reviews and features for various horror sites (see my profile for more details) - so, as a proviso, I talk about films a fair amount, and practically all of those are some shade of horror/sci-fi or other.

Other stuff: I am a metal fan, I'm currently trying to get out to as many gigs as possible and having a good time doing so. I'm very interested in history, especially ancient Greece and Rome, the Celts, the Viking Age, the Anglo-Saxons...and, more up to date, I am a huge Victoriana geek, especially the more unseemly side of Victoriana.

I am non-religious, though have a soft spot (interest-wise) for the history of European paganism, and I am an equal opportunities naysayer of both left- and right-wing politics as I see fit!

Have a look at my interests list - which is pretty up-to-date - if you want to know more. Cheers!

Would you like to be friends? We seem to have quite a few things in common! :D

Like you I'm interested in history, esp. old Rome, the Celts, Middla Ages and Victorian times. I love Goth (et al) music ... travelling, photography, etc. If you want to know more check out my profile!

I think we'll get on just fine. I ended up doing some speech and language work myself a few years ago, so that's interesting, and an ex-York habitee too. Added!

I'd be interested in adding you! I have a definite interest in both sci fi films and the history of paganism.

That would be lovely. I have to warn you though that I often post about (decidedly non-vegan) cooking - but I *always* put it behind a LJ cut! Added :)

we may not have tons in common (based on LJ interests), but you seem so interesting! I've been a proofreader and editor and an English teacher and tutor. I'm non-religious as well, and curious to learn about paganism. I love horror!
hope we can be friends!
