welcome

This is my "opposite of friends only" message. If you stopped by, even for a few minutes, I'd love to know that you were here! I don't care if you've friended me or not, if you just joined my friends list or if you've been with me from the beginning. I don't care if you never plan on coming back here again. If you're feeling sociable, pen a line or two about yourself in the comments. I'm all about the networking. You might meet someone you like in the comments. You might see an old friend. I might come visit your LJ. Make the web a little bigger and a little more interesting by pimping introducing yourself here. I'd be glad to know you.

Love,

Betty

hi Betty. I'm Pam, Jay's (zebrapix) wife and I thought I'd come say hi and meet you. I'm looking forward to getting to know you.

Oh I do need to warn you, I'm a bit of a goofy, silly, geek who gets all giddy at watching the wild birds on my patio and since I just saw some new babies I'm sure I'll be posting about them :) I just thought I'd warn you.

*gasp* Baby birdies! Bird bird birds! I love them already. I've been teaching my couch-surfing Senegal how to "step up" recently, and that's loads of fun. I'm such the bird fan.

Hi Betty. I'm Kat and I am here from add_me_over25. I saw your entry before this one, about training the senegal, and so I had to add you! Do you have a picture of him/her?

That's Bongo in my icon there. He's a 4 month old half moon conure. I got him as a baby and hand fed him. He can step up, shake hands, laugh, give kisses, and he says his name, Hello, good boy, pretty baby, step up (when he wants you to get him), and when he's tired, he gets in his cage and yells "night night!" :)

Hi Kat! Welcome to my LJ!

Oh my goodness. Bongo is just the cutest. He's got quite the vocabulary! He's lucky to have such a devoted owner. Syn just clucks his tongue affectionately and uses his tone of voice to communicate. I'm hoping that he'll learn some words when he's a bit older and relaxed- he's only about three, and he's had a series of owners.

I certainly do have a picture of my senegal. Unfortunately my hard drive crashed last night, so I'm posting from a different compie than normal. My "bird training" entries are all tagged (there are only a few so far), and the first bird training entry has a nice picture of Syn--he's molesting my tea cup.

Clicked on you from raven_moon because of your icons of the lovely Gillian Anderson. I used to wish that I was her, or rather, Dana Scully... I even cut my hair like hers several times (and unlike Gillian, I came to the red hair honestly!)

Haven't scrolled further to find out what type of person you are, because I was stopped by this intriguing idea! Mind if I snag and post it on my journal?

Thanks for the fun!

I'd love it if you spread the "guest book" idea around. It's much more hospitable than those "friends only" banners. Feel free to have a look around my journal; make yourself comfortable, have tea, ask a few questions. It's nice to have you here!

(And yes--Gillian is gorgeous. I'm hoping to copy her hairstyle from the end of the series because I think that shape would work with my hair texture and face. Here's hoping!)

You've intrigued me by what I've read so far. I found you through a friend that knows a friend who knows a community. Goodness - how did I get here again? I'd love to read more. Add me? Please?

I'm Wendy, I completely forget how we found each other's LJs, and I'm the sort who might dare you to put semi-naughty but incredibly-true things onto teeshirts.

I don't know about anyone else, but I suspect that we could find plenty of sex, caffeine, and nail polish addicts in this friends list. ;) I know that I, at least, would join you for some hot coffee and equally hot nookie.

Wait...

What'd I just say? ;)

Hi Betty, I'm Deb. I found your journal via LJ Idol - I'm a friend of Spydielives. My journal tends to be boring dear diary stuff, but you're welcome to read along.

And I do. *hugs* Thank you for signing the guest book! Any friend of Spydielives is a friend of mine.

Well here I am. Because you told me to. We're already friends so what else is there? Oh, I did enjoy the authority figures post -- perhaps I should comment there. Things are good for me...I'll probably do another intimate filter poll later today. How are things with you?
bettybaker
May. 22nd, 2007 04:00 pm (UTC)
Oh, you should totally do another intimate filter poll and then put me on the intimates list please. ;)

Hi, I'm Tracey.

We met through LJ Idol & I'm darn happy to be crossing over into "real world" friends.

*waves* I'm Sarah, and we met via LJ Idol, thus becoming friends.

You're a wonderful person, and a great internet friend.

The end! ^_^

Hey, I figured I'd join the party and thus I have friended you.

Peace.

I've known Betty for a long time, but have really started spending time with her in the last year or so. She is an outspoken fan of my comic strip, Synaptic Misfiring, and should be credited with taking photos of me that eventually landed me the current love of my life.

Signing in as commanded by albee, but you've already won my heart by tying and untying the strings of my leopard-print swimsuit.

As for the rest, the shortened version of my bio...

Reader, writer, tinker, editor, thinker, retailer, dreamer.

Irrepressible dictionary.

Occasionally does duty as a wise old mother elf in leather.

44 years old and proud of it. A 4'10"-ish legally blind curvy armful with long grey hair, a heart of stone, a silver tongue, a mind like a steel trap, nerves of Saran wrap, and a gimpy leg.

And yes, I'm adding you. Because I see lots of old friends and some new ones here.

I'm happy you're here! I mean, how can I resist a dictionary in a leopard-print swimsuit? We can have nerves of Saran wrap together.

Directed your way by kneads, I think your journal is interesting reading!

I found you through my fiance technonick (two intro comments above me) who, i suspect, wants me to have hot thoughts of sex in the kitchen.
