Friends Only

Uisge Beatha -- pronounced "Whisk-ah-bay-tha"

The following is my friending policy (I have policies! I am so freakin' important, huh?)



Feel free to friend me -- but be warned that I no longer automatically friend back. If you are only here for my infrequently updated fan fiction, you can find it at my fan fic community. If you want me to friend you back, post here and let me know a little about yourself and why you're here, what we have in common, etc.

This is my personal journal -- where I snark, vent, fuss and occasionally fume. I don't post often, but when I do I want to do so without worrying about upsetting someone's delicate sensibilities or getting into arguments. When I post here, it's MY opinion I'm stating. Period. It doesn't mean you might not have a differing one that's just as valid. It simply means that I don't necessarily want to hear yours. Not here, anyway. That's what YOUR LiveJournal is for. I don't want to have to justify my feelings or my opinions. I don't mind interesting debate, but if you're here to just argue and annoy -- go yank someone's chain.

As I've mentioned to people before, I am not a very nice person. I can be snarky, rude, stubborn, and painfully honest in stating my beliefs and feelings. If that bothers you, please feel free to defriend.

As for wank -- I like it, to a degree. It makes me laugh and as long as it doesnt' get out of hand, I see no harm. However, if you live your on-line life in constant drama with everything exploding around you and you want to drag it in here, please, walk away now.

You know, it's funny, some people think snarky rudeness is bad. Strange, innit?

BTW, I am not deflisting anyone -- just letting everyone know that I'm not posting my fic here anymore and if they want to deflist me, to feel free :)

Yeah, let's form a club :) Of course, we won't let anyone else join and then mock them, but what the hell.

Ooh, look - Vincent!

"As I've mentioned to people before, I am not a very nice person. I can be snarky, rude, stubborn, and painfully honest in stating my beliefs and feelings."

Well, that's what LJ is here for, innit?

Nov. 21st, 2007 12:07 am (UTC)
Well, yeah, but you'd be surpised at how many people don't get that LOL

*giggles* You really don't want to know how I have been pronouncing your name in my head...

I'm going to be watching your fic community, just in case you take me off of the flist. But since I have the most boring life on record and I don't do drama, and I'm really no trouble, I do hope you let me stay!
uisge_beatha
Nov. 21st, 2007 12:14 am (UTC)
LOL, I bet -- I've heard some really bad ones.

And I won't be removing anyone -- I am not deflisting -- just letting everyone know that I'm not posting my fic here anymore and if they want to deflist me, to feel free :)

So that's how you say your LJ name! I've been wondering for a while. Where does the emphasis go?
uisge_beatha
Nov. 21st, 2007 12:17 am (UTC)
:) See, I can be enigmatic too -- but not blue. Har Har

The emphasis goes on the Uisge - "Whisk" part

I never know what to say for these things ...
Am adding you, provided I can make myself stop staring at your banner. No obligation, obviously ;) ...

LOL, yes, the banner, it be pretty, no? Check out my creative journal banner, also done by my roomie, nnaylime.

Re: I never know what to say for these things ...
ooooh deeeeeear. I'm sitting here in a public place staring at that banner in--well, the polite word is fascination!

And I'm in a random coffee shop in Chicago right now, but we should totally be having a glass of wine and watching Mystic Pizza instead!

Oh, my dear, yes we should! Chicago, you say? One of my favorite cities!

[waves] I couldn't help but to friend you. Friending back is not a requirement in my book.

Remember that banner I am doing for you? How would you feel if it had a pic of Goren and Eames in it? If you just want VDO, that's okay too. Just let me know.

Would LOVE Goren and Eames ;-) You are such a doll!

Hiya, just saw your post about the HRC wins at spikealicious journal, so thought I'd mosey over and say hello w/a friending. I'm about the same age, grew up in central PA and still have a friend back East who lives in MD. Spike redemptionista and big Whedon fan. I'm a little erratic about updating LJ (have a mirror one at IJ), but when I do it's usually about books, music, movies, politics, gardening, etc. Though I moan and swear, drama is practically nonexistent.

Terrific user name, btw. :)

Wow, sorry I missed you in my speed-reading of my journal. Welcome -- sounds like we have a lot in common...which can be a good thing for us and perhaps a bad thing for the universe in general :-)

::waves:: It's hard to ignore an edict from Eman. *g*

Besides, I really kinda love your policies and the way you present them. :)

Welcome aboard....warning I don't actually post often, but I think about it a lot, if that counts?

If you don't mind seeing my face hanging out in your flist, I'll add you back -- not sure what to do with a lot of my old Buffy pals as I'm just not into the show or writing fic for it anymore.

Your "face still hangs out" in my F-List (since not all of your posts are f-locked at the moment), but you don't have to add me back again.

HELLO!
I love reading your fanfic, you have a great voice.
You sound like an interesting person that I'd like to get to know... beit as a LOCI fan, writer, or crazy internet person.
As for me...I am a normal weirdo. College grad putting my degree to good use working in a completely irrelevant field, spend entirely too much time online, and enjoying great shows such as loci, the closer, and oodles more lost in syndication land. Yeah. I don't know. So whats up??

Hello. We've come across each other a few times through the CI communities and on my "Dollhouse" post Lozzie mentioned that you are also a Joss Whedon fan and that I should ask you what you thought about it.

So, can we be friends?
uisge_beatha
Feb. 15th, 2009 05:18 pm (UTC)
But of course we can be friends...and yes I am a Joss fan, although I think more of a Buffy fan that anything else. My thoughts on Dollhouse: meh. I wasn't really enthused about it. I saw a preview of it about a year and a half ago at a con and was intriqued, but it looks like its been watered down quite a bit. I love ED though, so I go back and forth on whether I will keep watching.

I myself DO NOT PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS, Can have a wicked sense of humor...and while I have learned to some small degree to control my own snarkiness, rudeness, & stubbornness. Don't ask me a question if you don't want the answer I won't give you platitudes, sorry. But I enjoy reading other people's snarkiness being rude and complete honesty.

I am not a troll, looking for ugliness for the sake of ugliness, but I enjoy a sharp wit.


And you have a nice turn of phrase I enjoy. If it doesn't work out we can always divorce with a button and no lawyer's fees.

Welcome to my world, complete with minions (although my romie, nnaylime, and my admin, lanchid, for some reason, don't like that title). :::shrugs:::: When they get to be boss, they can change it :-)
