So, let me take a look at whom exactly is in my friends list, or has friended me, and see where the scythe shall reap. But there's no reason to be a particularly *grim* reaper...
First off, anyone who's been going "Wait, why am I reading this LJ?", now's the time to remove me. I will take no offense in being removed from your friends list, because several of you are probably treading water to stay afloat the same. It's all about what folks have time for, not about 'friendship' levels. Also note, while this is part of serious focus in my life- don;t take your classification too seriously. This was written at 4am after all.
Now. Time to classify like Linnaeus. You may fall under more categories than the one you are listed under, but I'm not drawing Venn diagrams.
Category 1: Keepers
People who are pretty darn undroppable due to longtime friendship and/or nookie source:
buran, cbrenton, drakegrey, eapa, gyngerfox, horsewoofie, murakozi, roho, warphammer
Thought-provoking people whose comments section tells more about me than my own LJ does:
Secondary journals from people whose main journal I read, and their other journal has an interesting focus too:
boventauren, kinshasa_tale, magnavixen, martinisat8
SinaiMuck people who remain cool as ever:
boingdragon, frysco, loboguara, octantis, tuftears
Cool artists/creators, whose works I like to keep track of:
jedd_marten, saribou, spengler, woodlander, yiffer
Local furries who I ought hang out with more:
They update twice a year at best, but I don't want to miss it if they do:
alice_in_texas,cygnata, chariclo, gabrieli, jennbirdie, redwuff, sennard, with_gusto, yasha_taur
Felines whom are more like acquaintances-plus than deep friends, but whom have interesting journals and are important professional contacts, and whom I would not mind talking more with but don't want to be pushy or bothersome:
bigtig, giza, khromat
Excitable chicks, and no, that's not what I mean by 'excitable', *meef ack ouch* stop hitting me! Enthusiastic chicks who just make me smile with their posts because it's good to hear of good things happening to them, and who need comfort when they're down.
cornrelish, scullyraptor, snowmane_uni, tyrrlin
People newly added, and while in a probationary period, I'll probably end up reading regularly:
Miscellaneous other folks:
bloogryffe,evilbenfranklin, gafennec, gryph0n, haystack, iron_raptor, normanrafferty, paracoon, rcoony, reptilemammal, tchall
Category 2: Likely to be axed.
Hey, where'd she go?
Folks who were closer once, but we've drifted apart.
dakhun,kiarrh,ipequey, skyglider, moonfires
Uhm, not that you're not a cool and froody person, but why are we watching each other's LJ again?
gabrielnotchear, keithbear, nikonraccoon, snowdog
Category 3: Also friend of:
Acquaintances that aren't friended, that I probably will not add to friends list. I'm trying to trim down, man! But hey, if you want to keep an eye on my LJ, that's cool, feel free.
captpackrat, diodraco, dizzybum, karou_windstalk,
Give me a while to ponder, brah, I just met you two weeks ago:
And Iiiiii think that's everyone.
