You should introduce yourself to me, or get Bheti, Margaret, Tom, Erica, or some other mutual friend to introduce us. Although there are a couple of people on my friends list who I haven't met, by and large I don't add people I don't know. It's just hard to get a connection with someone I've never met personally.

For a couple of other people who added me to their friends list, this is why I haven't added you back. Or I did and then removed you. It's not necessarily because I dislike you. Most likely I found myself not caring much to read about you simply because I don't know you and have very limited interaction online with you. There's something about seeing a person face to face and reading their posture, mannerisms, and body language that allows me to care. Not in all cases. But I find it extremely hard to care without it.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
