Well, it hurt a little to do it, but I finally removed the following people from my LJ Friends:
In the case of 1, 2 and 6, you can see those journals were all deleted. (I'll post my feelings later regarding people who delete their LJs.) Obviously I miss Deb, as well as Charlie and Carol. But what can I do? When people no longer want to associate with you, it's time to let go and move on. (Duh, Nik! I mean, how long ago did Deb delete her journal, after all! And here I am, still keeping her crossed out LJ among my friends. Grow up already. LOL.)
In the case of 3 and 5, I was removed by both people, so I just removed in return. (Tit for tat? Or whatev.)
In the case of 4, Deb apparently unfriended everybody and made the entire journal 'friends only.' At least she didn't delete it! (This makes more sense to me than deleting the journal.) Anyway, no point in keeping it as a friend if I can't read anything, right?
So I've now finished the major clean-up of my LJ Friends. The only journals I've got now that haven't friended me back are fic journals (which don't friend), LJ-related journals or celeb journals (that only friend other celeb journals).
Most of my LJ friends are M.I.A. (missing in action) now, it appears. So if I end up getting active here again, I'll need to get in and get some more friends. We'll see how it goes!
In the meantime, I really want to catch up with everybody! Exciting idea.
I've missed my online friends a ton.
Cleaning Up My LJ Friends List
Quickly! Here's the link to my new fic " Over." All the usual junk applies. If you don't like slash, don't read. If you don't like Real People…
Well, as everyone knows by now, the BAD news is that Kevin Richardson is leaving BSB. That. Sucks. I don't know why, but I never ever expected…
I did the LJ Friends Icons Meme. (It shows the userpics/icons of all my friends--plus links to each person/community. Rock on!) My LiveJournal…
