An interesting meme ...

Snagged this from bkwyrm's journal ... it's sort of a "six degrees of separration" thing (which, frankly, was more work than I'd anticipated) where you go through a bunch of friends lists sequentially ... but it's an interesting exercise none the less, so I guess I'll pass it along. However, being that I'm such a sweetie, I'm putting it behind a cut ...

Go to your 'friends' page. Click on the name of the seventh person who posted. Go to his or her 'friends' page. Click on the name of the seventh person who posted. Repeat until you are seven LJs from your own. If you come across someone who doesn't have seven entires on their friends page, pick the last one. If the seventh entry is a journal you have already visited on this trip, or a community, skip down to the next one and continue.

Note: I found it very confusing to count community posts (since the individual poster might not be "connected" to the person on whose Friends List they appear, other than being a member of the same community) or "feeds" (which don't have "friends", really), so I modified this slightly to just take individual posts (which in some cases was a challenge, since some folks seem to just have communities and feeds on their FLs!).


1) What is the title of this journal?
History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.

2) How many communities does this person belong to?

3) List any interests you share in common with this user.

4) List any friends you have in common with this user.

5) Where does this user live?
Toledo, OH

6) What is the seventh sentence in this user's most recent journal entry?
"ok, feeling a little better... haha. after reverting to mindless images."
(note: this was a one-line entry)

7) What is the first sentence in this user's seventh most recent journal entry?
"i just realized that when i write a blog, i do around the same time."

OK ... so that was pretty pointless afterall ... I started in on this three times, but kept getting scewed up with communities and feeds, but it was interesting to see what "completely different" directions things went in each time I started out (since I'd have a different 7th post on my FL, which would lead off elsewhere than before), and in only one case (out of landing in 21 journals) did I hit somebody that I "knew"!

Needless to say ... your mileage will, no doubt, vary!
