cap, captain miss america

I decided it's time to do a friending meme. Comment to this post with things about yourself so you can find people you would like to make friends with.

Here is a nice easy way: copy/paste the contents of the textarea into your comment

What do I write about in my LJ? Bits of fiction, some of which are based on an ongoing universe in my head, rants about how my brain works that day, marginally coherent reviews of pop-cultural phenomena a few months after the thing in question happens and the occasional bit of youtube video spam.
Types of friends I am looking for! Interesting ones. I don't really get too specific beyond that.

Oh, and I don't comment nearly as much as I should, but I do read every entry on my flist. Hence the not commenting on every post, I would never get off LJ otherwise.

(Also, I am really bad at these, so take it with a grain of salt XD)

Favorite food AHAHA, what isn't? I am a foodie, so I like just about everything. I'm a Team Baked Goods denizen, too.

Name/Handle John/Beldar
Age 45 (physically)
Location Indianapolis (or close to it)
Interests and Hobbies Sci-fi/fantasy fandom, writing, reading, music, photography, sports (but more watching than doing), cooking and general foodiness, and stuff like I'm doing right now =)
What do I write about in my LJ? Life, the universe, everything. Though I don't do it as often these days. Still, I like this format and freedom to write in more detail than I get in the Facebook update. And if nothing else, I'll wish my LJ friends happy birthday.
Types of friends I am looking for! I don't have a "type" though the more honest and less troll-ly you are, the better. I have people of various political leanings, religions, lifestyles, self-identities, partner preferences, etc. and from various countries in my f-lists. Don't expect me to always assume you are right, as I don't insist you always agree with me. And speaking English is a plus. I have no idea what those random Russians who friend me are saying.
Favorite food Too many to note. I love pizza and thai food and good burgers and a nicely-cooked wing of skate, but wouldn't want any one food every day. Far easier to list ones I *don't* like (such as broccoli or liver).
Anything else I'm always uncomfortable with self-disclosing, because I know that once the floodgates open, I'm pretty sure I've rambled on too much. (See above -- it's like I'm alergic to short answers) Still, you follow my LJ long enough, you get a pretty good idea of who I am and what I'm up to.
P.S. The icon is a picture of me. My default pic is a lemur.
P.P.S. I have a hat.

Name/Handle Hats!
Age 26
Location Puget Sound area, Washington State.
Interests and Hobbies Writing, RPing (Tabletop, LJ & AIM), sailing, geocaching, reading. Watching entire seasons of sci-fi shows through Netflix in a single bound.
What do I write about in my LJ? Daily minutia, mostly. A lot of dreams. A lot about sailing. I hope to sail around the world in the near future.
Types of friends I am looking for! People who like to ask questions, honestly. I love the dialogues that open up. (Especially when people ask about sailing.)
Favorite food Chicken and bacon pizza with white sauce, lately. Also yellow curry and breaded chicken.
Anything else I'm cool with anyone friending me, but if your journal's full of embedded youtube videos or fanfic, I'm less likely to friend you back. :(

Name/Handle I'm Jess!
Age 26.
Location New York City, right now. But I live in Connecticut. Until a few months ago, I lived in New Orleans.

Interests and Hobbies I read. A lot. I play computer games. I'm a grad student in Disaster Management and in training to be an EMT.

What do I write about in my LJ? My life, mostly.

Types of friends I am looking for! Mostly the people kind, but I am willing to make exceptions.

Favorite food Ice cream. Crepes. Or really good manicotti. But not all together.
Anything else

Name/Handle Sileri
Age 28
Location California
Interests and Hobbies chainmail (the metalcraft, not spam), volunteering with the U.S. Coast Guard, playing games, and my cat.
What do I write about in my LJ? Real life stuff mostly. There will be memes, quizzes, and the like but I don't do much by way of fandom.
Types of friends I am looking for! The kind with a pulse is a good starting point.
Favorite food I like a lot of things so it's hard to pick a favorite. Highlights from the four food groups I like carnitas, Havarti cheese, avocado, and doughnuts.
Anything else My cat's breath smells like cat's food

I would friend you twice, but I only have one pulse!

Name/Handle pixiebelle or Kristen
Age 28
Location Orange County, CA
Interests and Hobbies My pets, music, dancing, working out, that typical stuff...
What do I write about in my LJ? I write a lot of day to day stuff, my wonderful weekends with java_fiend, my family, my pets, whatever is on my mind.
Types of friends I am looking for! People who actually want to get to know me through actually talking to me. I like comments and I like leaving comments, and love when people respond. I like to get to know my friends.
Favorite food Peanut butter. I'm an addict.
Anything else Anyone is welcome to add me. Though I do write a lot of day to day stuff, so if that's not your thing, I might bore you. I try to be funny or entertaining, but not so sure how that works out...my sense of humor is rather odd. I have special filters, one is a "disordered eating" filter, the other is an adult themed one that shares NSFW stuff.

And I love to talk A LOT.

Name/Handle Izzy/Darkphaedra
Age 21
Location Tempe, AZ
Interests and Hobbies Lots of things, like writing and flash games and anime and drawing and romance novels and skateboarding and classical music... *wanders away, still listing things*
What do I write about in my LJ? Some everyday stuff, but also ideas that I have about things, I post when I publish fics on fanfiction and occasionally I post when I have a problem that I need to get off my chest or when I need advice from my f-list.
Types of friends I am looking for! People who post cool stuff. People like me. People not like me. I'm really not too picky because the wider variety of friends I have, the bigger pool of experiences I have to draw from.
Favorite food Right now? Chocolate anything with Cask and Cream.
Anything else Not really. I'm pretty cool! Hit me up!

Age 25
Location Arizona
Interests and Hobbies Computers, geeky television, film and film studies, liberal politics, history, philosophy, and, far too much lately, Minecraft.
What do I write about in my LJ? Mostly thoughts and feelings; ramblings about my (hopefully unique) interpretation of the universe, interspersed with online videos and political commentary.
Types of friends I am looking for! Tall, dark, handsome, or possibly elderly and wealthy. I'll accept "dorky and awesome" as a substitute though ;)
Favorite food Sushi.
Anything else I've loved your journal from the moment I first stumbled across it, and I love the way your writing both makes me smile and think about my own assumptions.
