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......

I never know what to say!

27 year old ornery lady and PhD student currently located in Maryland, US. I post regularly (as the lovely Goffburd can attest to!) and you should too! I spend a lot of time reading (Pratchett is an all time favorite), watching silly sci-fi and fantasy shows (TNG, Buffy, etc.), cooking vegan food, playing board games, hanging out with my cat and bf, and wandering about town with my headphones on (just look at my profile for musical tastes).

I'm always looking for new folks who share my interests and who actually use LJ like a proper journal!

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!

I can't resist!
First up, thank you [livejournal.com profile] goffburd for putting this up!

Moi is a 41 year old 'mum' to 5 cats, 4 rabbits and a flock of different birds (yes, no husband, no bf/no gf, no kids ;), destined to become an old 'lonely' lady with lots of pets)...I live in the very west of Germany, not that far from the dutch border...in a boring town, just known for its HUGE mall.
I'm a geocacher, dreamer, fantasy reader, horror lover, agnostic atheist with a pagan past and so much more...My lj is dramafree and I do read all the entries on my f-list, even though I don't always comment, but I try to interact as often as possible. I love sharing photos (esp. of my pets) and ramble a lot...It would be great to find some new friends!!

I am 31 years old and of female body, in this life. I live in a fishing town in southwest England with my mum. I have a long term boyfriend, Steve, who lives a couple of towns away, and the pair of us are pretty bonkers, hehe. We are child free and not planning on altering that status any time in this life.

I work part time as a secondary-school supply teacher, am trained as a drama teacher, actress and martial artist, and am doing the final year of my Masters degree in educational research. I also am one half of a sword dancing/ stunt duo, and one of the co-founders and the main kicking-arse-into-gear-eer of a non-profit community theatre company which won an award for its contribution to the local community in 2010. And I am a "real person" (not an anorexic wafer) model.

My hobbies and interests include theatre and performing arts, stage combat, living history, medieval arms and armour, costuming, LARP, racing around in costume/ character as a French musketeer, pirate, wench, Knight Templar, high elven ranger, drow bandit - or whatever else takes my fancy but those are my favourites - , history, sword dancing, martial arts, creative writing, anticapitalism, organic vegetable gardening, reading, occultism, the paranormal, past lives, all things Elven, weird lucid dreaming experiments, new age, nature, photography, swimming in the sea, survival skills, speculative history, science fiction, fantasy, collecting recordings of rugby songs and similar impolite ditties, cuddling other peoples cats (since I cant have cats at home - parental ruling), non-conformity, thinking outside the box, and generally flittering along in my own random miasma.

Posts are usually about what I have been getting up to, recounting random incidents in the day, rants, and picspams, and average between 1 and 2 a day. I am looking for pretty active friends who do comment from time to time. I am an LJ addict and have this account since 2003.

Why not *grin*

I'm Ellie, 25, married and living in Sheffield. I currently work as a carer with elderly adults with dementia but I'm actually a qualified Speech and Language Therapist and going through the stressful process of trying to find a job when there are none!
I have a cat and a guinea-pig. Generally post about day-to-day stuff, post a fair amount of photos. I'm very open so if you have a question you need only ask. I try to comment as much as I can and appreciate the same from my friends list. I love to actually get to know my friends list and develop proper "friendships" so communication and interaction is key :D
Hope to see some of you soon!

PS - [livejournal.com profile] goffburd I'd like to add you too, if that's ok?

Well, hi! I'm 25, female, from Finland. I study English philology at Tampere University. I read and write fantasy, hoping to get a novel into publishable shape in the not too distant future. I'm a music junkie and I listen to mostly but not exclusively metal (for specific artists/bands, see profile). I tend to go overboard and get carried away like a sack of potatoes when I find something (or someone) to fangirl over.

I post mostly about stuff that happens to me, or when nothing happens (which is most of the time) it's just random rambling about fandoms/music/books/writing.

Hi! I'm Rox, 29 living in Devon UK and working in the library field. I'm very happily married and we are childfree although I am a huge animal lover and adore being Mummy to "the horde": seven fancy rats, mostly adopted from our local RSPCA shelter. Rats and rat pics feature pretty heavily on my journal so if you have a phobia of them mine probably isn't the LJ for you!

Aside from animal stuff... I'm a gamer (mostly PC stuff on Steam - I'm a bit of a Valve fangirl) and have also been known to cosplay. I love going to gigs and enjoy a variety of music including metal, goth, indie, chip-tunes and especially classic rock. I'm also a bit of a literature and history nerd: I have a PhD in Renaissance literature (possibly the world's least employable degree?) and love the Jacobean, Victorian and Edwardian eras, although my biggest current fixation (for some inexplicable reason) is with heroic age Antarctic explorers. I don't own a TV so a lot of TV fandom stuff passes over my head, but I do love going to the cinema and watching DVDs.

My journal gets updated about 5 or so times a week and tends to be a mix of day-to-day ramblings, rants, raves, book reviews, random links and photo posts. I've been on LJ since 2004 and have met some awesome people through this site so would be happy to welcome some more active posters to my f-list, it's sad how many people have jumped ship for Facebook these days.

Came here from a mutual friend as well.

I'm a 27 year old New Zealander living in London for nearly 2 years and looking to leave within the next 5 months to travel on the way back home. I write most days complaining about my dull job at an engineering company, the fallout of the end of a nearly five year relationship, the related trying to figure out how to sleep with boys I like now that I can, food (both making it myself and eating out at Michelin restaurants), New Zealand politics, beer and bears. I like being very open about my life and like other friends to be the same. LJ has been my way to get it all out since 2001 afterall!

I'll bite too.

Basically, I'm Nimeth, 28, living in the Vale of Evesham, England. Currently studying at the Open Uni for a bachelor's in psychology. My interests and hobbies generally revolve around books (Robert Jordan, George RR Martin, Tad Williams, Patrick Rothfuss, Pratchett), films (horror, fantasy, drama, and a shit-ton of foreign language films), and games (Final Fantasy, Fable, Legend of Zelda). I'm an atheist but sort of looking into paganism, I spend a lot of time on my journal discussing my life, politics (mostly British and American) and occasionally things I run across that I think are worth reposting.

Pet peeves include liars, homophobes, racists and the current crop of Republican presidential candidates.

If you really want to get to know me better, my user info might be worth a look. Looking for some new friends, so if I haven't totally run people off with my wall o'text, you'd be more than welcome!

Hi :) 26 yr old south easterner, just down the m4 from London. Currently working with very challenging teens so naturally I drink a lot if wine and tell silly things that teenagers do. I love music and film so post videos and reviews, I love baking, cooking, Jamie Oliver and talking about anything that comes to mind. My lj is very open. I'd love some more active people, a lot of people I know have left lj and I really miss that feeling of belonging up a community sometimes! feel free to add, I always worry I get to these posts too late!

Greetings from the South West

Best described as a Child-free, God-free, beer lover with a pizza fetish [therapy didn't work].
Work in IT as a systems programmer focusing on mainframe hardware, a job that's as sexy and exciting as it sounds.

Enjoy all music with Metal[and all of the sub, sub-sub & sub-sub-sub genres] and Ambient as favorites.

I'd very much like to add more LJ friends -looks like most on this thread are friend-locked.
My journal is open [w/exception to friends-only entries], feel free to add and let me know.

Hi, I am a 35 and 3/4 year old dispenser of drugs in a dysfunctional pharmacy situated somewhere in the east of the UK, although I don't go into too many details as I comment on my bosses many weirdnesses on a regular basis in my journal, as well as the many strange customers that visit!
I used to be a huge gaming geek, although that sort of thing is now mainly confined to my iphone these days and love films, especially really bad ones which I highlight in my soon to be networked Trailer Trash Tuesday spot.
I read and comment regularly and am on LJ usually about 3 or 4 times a week, so if that sounds fairly interesting then add me please!

My brain doesn't seem to be functioning tonight, so I'll paraphrase my profile:

I'm a 35 year old Scottish female whose number one ambition is to be an eccentric recluse. It's going quite well so far, although I still have to venture into the company of other people to earn a living, sadly.

I'm single and childfree and very happy that way. Living alone is one of the greatest joys of my life. The remote control is mine, all mine, buwahahaha!

I identify as pagan but my path is very much my own and – as in most things – I like to do it my way! I'm fascinated by all things spiritual, paranormal, strange and mysterious, yet at the same time I'm quite a cynic and sceptic and have an almost total lack of belief in anything. This seems to work pretty well for me.

I spend my spare time doing things such as reading any kind of book that falls into my grasp, dabbling with creative writing when the muse strikes, messing around on LJ, writing to penpals, photographing the pretty bits of Scotland, eating industrial amounts of chocolate, avoiding doing the housework and whining that I don't have enough time to do all of the above. I've considered getting a life, but frankly, I'm far too busy.

I update LJ more or less every day and on the whole I ramble on about anything and everything, from day to day stuff, to more in-depth feelings and opinions. I might be writing about spirituality one day, bitching about work or telling a silly family story the next.

I have some health issues (most notably fibromyalgia and IBS) but I try not to bleat on about them too much. (Besides, there are always plenty of other things to bleat on about :P) Hey, it’s my journal and I’ll whine if I want to! But overall, I’m not a negative person.

You won’t find lots of exciting stories about sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll here, but people do tell me that they find my journal entertaining and funny and I believe those people to be intelligent and perceptive :P

I'm looking to add a few people who use LJ in the same way as I do... To write personal entries and to get to know the people on their Flist as friends. I prefer to only add people who update and comment on a fairly regular basis.

Hello everyone!

I'm in my 30s and live in the East Midlands. I post about work (I've just stopped being unemployed, thankfully), books, knitting, food, stuff I've been up to... I've recently changed career path from academia and sometimes I post about that too. I have a dwarf hamster who I love muchly.

Like lots of people I've noticed my friends list getting much quieter and not as communicative, so am definitely interested in gathering new people I have things in common with!

Live a pretty boring life. Thank the gods for the internet and finding interesting things to post about. Recently, I complained about the "Three Whale Movie". My next post might be about Little Deaths.

[livejournal.com profile] ellierachael amongst others pointed me here!

I'm Dominique/Maysie - 29 year old girly, who lives in Exeter,Devon! I've been here for three years and just finished a photography course.

I love music ("pop and rock" mainly but a fair few of other genres) my favourite bands are Muse,Kaiser Chiefs,Keane, Duran Duran and 10cc, I won't start on solo artists!
I also enjoy crafting (sewing crotchet amongst other related things) ,photography,baking,traveling, going to concerts, writing letters to name the main things!

I have to admit I'm not so great at lj at times and do tend to rant about my job in an outdoor store a fair bit, but I'm crazy,bubbly and loud, I hope that shows in my lj!

I'm dyslexic and not great with wording/writing but I love to blog here! and will be sticking around a fair while!

I'm friends only and i've more info on my profile page!

I was referred here by [livejournal.com profile] ghost_light.

Who I am? Well, here's a whole random bunch of stuff:

-- 43 years old
-- Female
-- Canadian
-- Left-leaning liberal/socialist
-- Autistic
-- Cat lover
-- Christian (and no, that does NOT contradict the liberal-socialist part)
-- Book nerd (actually, all-around nerd/geek type)
-- Sci-fi fan
-- Obsessed with Doctor Who
-- Fanfic writer

What I'm looking for? I welcome pretty much anyone, but ideal friends are those who share my values and have common interests. My LJ is 99 percent open and very little is friends-locked, so you can look at it and at my user info if you want to know more.

30 year old gal living in Columbus, Ohio with my two kids (9 and 6mos). I don't work, my partner is a musician for a living. I post semi-regularly when I have something worth posting--I don't post often about my kids or day to day entries, unless something out of the ordinary happens. Mostly just stream of thought writings and articles I post on a myriad of topics--ex-groupiedom, mental health issues, pop culture, yada yada. I guess I post once or twice a week. I've been on livejournal consistently for eight or so years, so I'm not going anywhere anytime soon.

Stuff I do--Go to concerts, find stuff to entertain my kids, pretty much obsessed (not in a fandom way though) with anything Dr. Who/Whedon related. I listen mostly to rock, metal and old country.

I don't comment as often as people would like me to--or so I--but I always comment if I read something interesting or have something to say. What I mean is, my comments are always quality of quantity. I don't do Friends' Cuts.

That's about it. I try to keep it interesting. I like all friends so don't be shy!
