just watch them.
listen to them.
do you want to be like that?
a faceless, mindless, heartless

save it.

maintain your self

Re: +
Sure! And we both seem to like fashion editorials too! I'm surprised and happy that you added me despite you're sticky post saying that you're currently not adding. :D

I'm André! You are Meagan, if I'M not mistaken?

Oh, yeah, I would appreciate it tremendously, if you could read my intro post. It briefs about crucial stuff about me that I think you should know about.

I also have some Behemoth stuff I can scan for you. I don't think they're available in the western side of the world yet.

Oh heck... I went ahead and added you before I saw the status on this one. If you'd rather I didn't, that's cool. D:

Hey, man! I didn't mean to come off like a dick or anything. When I got a rename, I decided to clear out of my friends-of list (and wiped out everyone on my f-list). It wasn't like I was deleting only YOU out of my friends-of list.

And about the status, I am sort of lying. I just don't like it when strangers add me so I have my status up as not adding. And on my standard, if I at least see someone around for a certain period of time and have had sufficient commenting or two with them they become not so much of a stranger. So you're not exactly a stranger (although I don't know the entirety of your personality and aspects of life).


I didn't add you right back when you initially friended me for a few reasons, which I will elaborate in my next comment that shall be screened.


TO BE CONTINUED... DUN DUN DUN

Thank you so much for the in depth and insightful response. I really appreciate that. (I've screened it, however, because I felt it was too personal for it to be public)

I'm sorry I cannot (at the moment) return my words in the length as yours but I see good fellowship along our way. *BRO HUG*

If you don't mind (and if you have the time to spare), please read my intro post for a few more things about me.


Thank you and I'm really glad we came to encounter each other!

Hey guuuuuuurl. OF COURSE!

I have an intro post here that I will really appreciate if you could read. It has very important basic things about me that I want anyone adding me to know. Even skimming through it and getting the important bits are fine! Pleas and thank yo. <3

I know you're not adding anyone and well, I'm one month behind but we were talking into our mutual friend comments and gosh, you are Bukowski fan. This is awesome. I love him too, so.. add? :)

[identity profile] leatherandgloss.livejournal.com on July 5th, 2009 01:54 pm (UTC)
Yes! LET'S BE FRIENDS.

Don't mind that not adding thing. It only applies to users I have NEVER talked with before. I'm gonna add you right now!

I have an intro post here. That I really want you to read because it contains the most essential and basic facts about me (which will be necessary for you to understand my entries as they are mostly personal matters). If you have any intro posts, I'd love to read it as well!

AND HELLYEAH FELLOW BUKOWSKI FAN *SHAKES HANDS*

Welcome to the scene of a crime my journal, bb. ;)))

I'll read it right now and I had like an intro post a long time ago but I'll make one soon too cause this will be much easier for people to understand some parts of my life.

I'm happy already being friends with you, darling. ;)

Hey, sure thing, guuuurl. I have an intro post here, which I would like you to read before anything else. I know this sounds very self-absorbed but that post contains the basic, essential facts about me that I want you to know. If you have any intro post, I'd love to read them too.

Welcome to the crazy boat, bb.

Yay! I commented and hope I made sense :/ (on one of your recent entries actually.) That reminds me... I should make an intro post.

Thanks bb.

Hey, I'm so sorry it took me so long to add you back. There was a whole huge fucking dramatic events that went on for the last few weeks. I will send a PM over to your account, please tell me if you don't get it.
