Who are you people? - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
Who are you people?
So, I've been doing the live journal thing for three months now. I know who a bunch of my friends are now. To be accurate, I know who a bunch of my "real"-life friends are in the livejournal world, and as I've been finding them, I've been adding them to my friends list. Often, they find me, and if I can figure out who they are, I add them to the list.

This leave me with an interesting problem. There are a bunch of people here on livejournal who I am sure I must know. At least I think I must know them. These are people who seem to be good friends of my friends, and involved in the sorts of things that I was involved in at MIT, etc. Sadly, I don't know for sure because I just don't have enough information.

I've helpfully put my first name and a picture of me in a big hat on my blog. I'm pretty sure that people can tell if they know me or not. On the other hand, other people have not done this, which makes it much harder to tell. I can understand why they haven't done this, different people have different comfort levels with revealing personal information online, and there are some people who don't like the way they look in a big hat. Also, some people have given their first name, but its less helpful than you might think. I think I know at least a dozen Mikes, two dozen Daves, and a score of Jennifers, so I'm often a bit confused about which particular Mike, Dave or Jen it might be.

So, if you think I've ignoring you by not putting you on my friends list, its most likely because I haven't figured out who you are. You should drop me some sort of large hint so that I a) know you exist on livejournal and b) can figure out who you are.

Current Mood: embarrassed embarrassed

I'm Donna. Used to room with twe and firstfrost. Married to Francis (fxz) who never posts. We have kids (as seen in the icon.) You may have actually figured all that out, since my username was a name I used back at MIT. But Just In Case. :) Hihi!

I'd already figured you out Donna. I had put you on my friends list, but confirmation is always good. I hadn't realized that Francis had an account, though.

Ok, another response to an old post. Can you tell I'm reading your back posts?

I'm Megan. (Chenoa happens to be my middle name.) I went to high school with arcanology and marcusmarcusrc and justom. You've met me at a party at firstfrost's house, but you were leaving. We have a lot of friends in common.

(Binding my LJ to me is easier in this case than explaining who I am, since I'm not sure you know...)
