i am sitting here for a minute thinking of the strange ways i found various livejournal ppl. i did find a number of you in rather normal ways via a community or friendsfriends, but some of you turned up in a more unusual fashion.
i met lyeta because livejournal was broke for a few days in 2001 so i went over to deadjournal and there she was, keeping an amusing diary on satan.
i met slim_hazard because he found a death of samantha album in a bargain bin and posted about it on That List, then he started e-mailing me weird stories and i thought he was pulling my chain.
i met waxpumpkin because i was reading a biography of john lee hooker on top of the video game console at the green room and knavishas wanted to play it and asked me to move, so i ended up talking to waxpumpkin but i got the two of them confused, so for about a year i thought he was actually knavishas and versa vice.
i met idioticpoet because he used to have another name on LJ which was almost exactly the same as one of my best friends, so between that and him listing magazine as an interest i figured he had a good chance of being cool.
i met nickyhopkins because i interviewed the real nicky hopkins once. he mostly talked about scientology. i think he's dead now.
there are several other people i met in rather interesting fashion but the interesting parts are classified and besides i think i hear the clorox being arrived.
