There are days when I sometimes wonder what I did to deserve such lovely people in my life, when I realise just what a gift lj has given me. Lj is more than just a social networking site, I have a few of those, Facebook, twitter etc. But it is lj that I come to when I want to share my squee, my stories, my writings and my life. Funnily enough lj is also the only place where I have no friends and family added, and in a way it allows me to be more open than anywhere else. I don't have to worry about whether my boss will think I'm slacking by posting midday, what my best friends growing up think of the things I write, or even whether my mother will see me curse, and in a way that frees me more than anything else.
I came to lj to find fandoms and instead I found a home, with a family that I had never even realised I was missing, not one that replaced my own but one that enhanced it. I met my two wifey's here Becks and V, my fellow goddesses Miri and Sandi, Sosie and Kat and Molly. I met my sister from another fandom mother Margareth, my mind meld twin the lovely Ames, I became first a stalker and then a friend to the lovely Laura and when I want to be mocked mercilessly there is crazy cousin Emily, also known as Nat, there is my favourite little sister Bekah who I still miss terribly as I don't see often enough and there is my sister in squee Juney. Then there is my family of mods Laura (again yes you are that special), the epic Jess, the lovely Helen and the sweet, wonderful Ruth who prompted this post by sending me the loveliest of lovely gifts for my little boy, which he will LOVE especially the colour orange it is his favourite. When I opened it tonight I wanted to cry in a good way of course. It will never fail to make me smile every time I realise how many special gifts lj has given me.
Then of course there are the new friends I have made, the people who share my fandom squee, who realise how much I love certain characters the lovely qaf girls I've recently made the acquaintance of, the people who woke up this morning happier cos yay show had been renewed. The people who grieve with me over the cancelling of shows like TSCC and firefly, who hear the word squee and don't think I'm crazy who understand that ten was better than nine but eleven is winning us over, who realise that the answer to life, the universe and everything is 42
So thank you to everyone on my flist, I may not always comment, I may neglect to update you sometimes nut trust me I never forget you
(Ruth you are getting your own post cos you are that awesome)
