(post-dated comment: the real date is January 23rd, 2007.)

This is a (mostly) friends-only journal.

(cue balloons of various colours and sparkly thingies to sound less unfriendly).

My fics are posted publicly, but I am otherwise somewhat reluctant to expose what remains essentially a diary for the whole world to see. I you want to read it, friend me, comment here or on another one of the public posts and you will be added, one never has too many friends :)

Hi. I'm going to friend you, and hope you'll friend back. I was delighted to see that you're taking on the character of Ségolène in [ profile] worldaffairs, and I look forward to interacting with you there or in your character lj. I play Angela Merkel ([ profile] iam_angelam), Silvio Berlusconi ([ profile] jc_of_politics), George Bush ([ profile] fratboydoesgood), and Nicolas Sarkozy ([ profile] sarko_le_grand). Nico has already friended Ségolène and left a rather condescending comment to her first post; my other characters will be friending her in the next day or so. Btw, in case you don't know the etiquette yet, if you want to speak as yourself when you're posting under the [ profile] marie_sego login, just put your comments in italics. We used to preface player comments with "OOC:", but italics is simple and obvious. And the comments or posts themselves will make it very clear whether it's your character or you who's speaking. :-)

Thank you for the welcoming message, Ségolène has replied to Nicolas with some acidity (she's deeply envious of his high heels, hers aren't that sophisticated).

I had intended to keep this blog and the RP one pretty separate, but I'll be looking forward to interacting with your various avatars (and my, do you have a lot of them!) over at Worldaffairs and with you here!

Hello, I have seen you are a member of [ profile] lucius_muggles; and frankly, what more of an introduction does one need?

None indeed :)

If your username is anything to go by, we must be on the same blond team...?

We certainly are :)

Look forward to plotting with you :)

Deutsch ist deine Lieblingssprache?? You don't even hear Germans say that!
All I ever hear from people I know is that German's way too difficult.

Ignore me, I seem to be on a sugar high or something and can't stop reading the flists flist..

Hehe, *waves back*

You're very welcome on this journal, I love your sub-titled (or whatever it is that appears as your name on Gmail notices). Where does it come from?

The "gnat on speed" part? That was stolen from another LJ friend, [ profile] rillalicious, who often said she had the attention span of a gnat on speed. It seemed to fit for me, so I just snatched it...

it sounds like a quote from a song :)

Date: 2007-06-24 01:36 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

It could be. Maybe I should check, I might be quoting something here and don't even know it.

Date: 2007-06-24 01:44 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Or you could pretend you're quoting something obscure and semi-academic to sound superior ;-)

Date: 2007-06-24 01:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh yeah, I have a lot of practice with that!

It sounds especially superiour if you quote in a foreign language and then say that the translation doesn't work too well because it's an idiom. Impresses people like whoa...


Date: 2007-06-24 01:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Or - better still - just insert foreign words when you speak, it contributes to the Verfremdungseffekt between you and the listeners, thus establishing, perhaps, an air of déjà vu. The hoi polloi will then stand in awe... ;-D

Very good!

Such a pity, though, that my ineptitude of inventing suitably cosmopolitan rejoinders in a timely fashion all too often interferes with my desire to voice my opinion of my fellow people in appropriate terms.

A comeback simply does not have the desired cutting edge if it's delayed by hours.


I should borrow my brother's mind. He at least can remember fitting Latin epigrams for most situations in life, even if he doesn't create them himself.
Martial can be quite to the point, even several centuries after his demise.

And he also gives an astonishing number of synonyms for "penis", if memory serves :D

May I friend you? We seem to have the same literary references...

Date: 2007-06-25 03:42 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Of course, I'll friend you back!

Though I must warn you, my journal consists mostly of ramblings about work with very little literary value...

Date: 2007-06-25 03:46 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Mine's made of ramblings about life in general with similarily little literary value, so we should get on :D

Have friended you here as well.

I've really enjoyed your recent comment at [ profile] czech_culture and because it seems it's not the only interest we have in common - here I am, friending :)

It's good to know someone enjoyed it, I'm afraid I might have been a bit flippant.

You're Czech!!! Bydlela jsem v Praze v roce 2003-2004, ale zapemenovala jsem vscheno (?) Anyway, if you ever post in Czech you'll have a very eager friend reaching for her dictionary at the speed of light to decode what you said. I've friended you back!

Date: 2007-10-02 03:30 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I think it was quite accurate and rather polite.

An Czech expert! A dokonce umí česky! I post in English on LJ, mostly because it's a perfect place to train my language skills (and to find enough adventurous and kind readers of these attempts ;) But if you don't mind, I might comment your posts in Czech from time to time.

I'd absolutely love it! I really need to get back to my Czech textbooks (I'd planned to, but then had to go to the Netherlands to work there and got sidetracked into learning Dutch instead. But now I have time on my hands, so...)

Nous nous sommes souvent croisées chez l'un, chez l'autre, chez shiv en particulier, aussi je me dis qu'il ne serait pas idiot de franchir un pas supplémentaire et de te friender. C'est OK ?

Hello! The reveal is up at [ profile] sshg_exchange I see you are the author of Letter of Mercy One Sunny Morning. This is one of my very favorite stories from the exchange, thank you. Now that I know who you are I shall hop off to find your other work. Friends?

I know you from the hgss quizz (which I love!) and will add you back, but I ought to warn you that a) most of the action now takes place on insanejournal for me and b) usually I'm more into comedy and less into dark!fic. I am, nonetheless, very happy to "meet" you!

Date: 2008-02-26 09:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
No worries I see you left a link to your IJ, I will find you there. What archive is your writing posted at?

I am toying with the idea of a horror quiz. Letter of Mercy, Little White Lies, Dark Headmaster. The exchange had a nice trio of them. See this is how I get distracted, I wondering down another quiz idea

From: [identity profile]
It's right here on LJ. Again, though, you should be warned that it's not very good!

A horror quizz sounds like a great idea - most Snermione is either fluff or romance (and there's nothing wrong with that!) but it's always nice to see the darker side of things... I'm also thinking of Meggory's The Man Who Sold the World (it's over on Ashwinder I believe), it has pretty dark themes too. I can't think of anything else right now...

Just me again. I friended you over here too. I want to be sure to find your Jeeves crossover when it's ready. Don't mind me. Generally I'm not nearly this big a pest. I don't post much. I mostly read SSHG or Malfoys and comment. That and helping with the [ profile] quiz_sshg. I'll just go back into quiet mode now. Thanks again.

This means I really ought to get cracking on that fic, heh? ;)

See you around!

Of course not! Writing for you was a bit intimidating as you're such a prolific author so I'm glad you liked the result :)

Friending you. 😎
