What is your LiveJournal username? How did you come up with it? Oh, you all know this one. Sweptawaybayou is the name of a fun, bouncy song by the now defunct Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts. Russell Crowe's Australian bar band. One of the few I can listen to without cringing. :) And I happen to love the lyrics.
Have you renamed before? If so, what were your old names? If you haven't renamed, what names would you want to rename to? Nope. I like my user name. It works for me.
How much does your userinfo say about you? Hrmmmm, bday and the town I live in ... and a few personality descriptions. *la* just so no one can say they weren't warned.
How long have you been on LiveJournal? September 15, 2003.
What is the longest amount of time you've gone without posting? Oh, prolly when I first joined. I didn't post anything until around October or November of that year. When I found that BtVs/Ats was here. And then Boom! Whooot!
On average, how many entries do you post per day? (Divide how many total entries you have by how many days you've been on LJ.) .8? Bah. I hate math. Dammit Jim, I'm a baker, not a teacher!
What are your posts normally about? The bakery, my kids, how sexass David and teh!Behr are ... yis. I freely admit this is my life. Welcome to it.
Is your LiveJournal friends only? Why or why not? Some. If I mention my kids, I usually lock it. Sometimes with work and never with fandom, unless I'm being an Elitist Bitch.
Does your LiveJournal have an actual title or are you merely USER @ LiveJournal? Personal Obsessions. Which is what I would name a website, if I ever had one. :D
How long do you see yourself staying on LiveJournal? oh i'm prolly a lifer.
ABOUT YOUR FRIENDSLIST
How many people are on your friendslist, not counting private journals, media journals, etc? 285
Why do you choose to add a person to your friendslist? If it's someone that friended me first, I go read their journal and their user info page. If I'm interested, I friend them back. If its someone I've friended, it's usually because I like what I've seen on my friend's flists.
Is your friends list an actual list of people you consider friends, or more of a reading list? Mostly a reading list, but some are people I cling to, um, I mean, people that I can't live without. You know.
How often do you read your friendslist? Every day, twice a day. Okay, four times. Six. Sheesh! People! POST MORE! ENTERTAIN ME!!
Do you use filters when viewing your friendslist? nope.
How much do you talk to people on your friendslist off of LiveJournal? I stalk tabaqui in real time. And i always talk to lostakasha. Some others, like killerweasel and wolfshark a couple times a month ... and lady_t_220, of course.
Do you do friends cuts? Why or why not? Only when someone cannot learn to use cut!tags for pics/fic. That annoys me. Once or twice I'll let slide, but more than that and *snippitysnip*
Do you regularly participate in friending memes? If not, how do you normally find people to friend? Nope, never been in one. When I'm bored, I'll skim friend's friends and sometimes I'll snatch up people there.
How often do you add new friends to your friendslist?
A couple times a month maybe.
Do your friends have to have things in common with you? Mostly fandoms, a couple are from work/grocery/real life and one is because she is my child.
ABOUT YOUR ICONS / USERPICS
How many userpics do you get maximum? How many of those slots do you actually use? 121, right now i'm at 117. I can't bring myself to use up all the slots! what if i find *the* icon and can't upload it? *flails*
Do you mostly use icons made by yourself or by others? 99% by others, the only exception is my default. Which is the only icon i've ever made that never fails to make me smile.
Do you have your own icon community? How often do you post in it?
What fandoms are most frequently seen in your userpics? Ats, SPN and, of course, teh!Behr. Who is his own fandom.
How do you find icons to use? Skimming icon communities or finding a picture that makes me wet my panties. Then bothering people with talent to MAKEMEANICONOMG!!!! *cough*
How often do you upload new icons to use in your userpics? Whenever the urge strikes.
Which of your userpics do you use the most? Prolly David and Behr.
Which of your userpics do you like the most? oooh, hard. I'd have to say the one that Tabi made me with my name tattooed on Jason's ass.
The old maximum number of userpics was three. Could you see yourself "surviving" on three userpics now? Hahahahahahahaha! No.
What do your userpics say about you? I like pretty men. A lot.
ABOUT YOUR FANDOMS
Which fandoms are you most active in? Ats and RPS, mostly. I play on the fringes of Bones, X~men, Supernatural.
What do your choice of fandoms say about you? Hrmmmm ... I like tall, dark, broody
Do you make friends based on fandom? Oh, hell yes. Best friends I've ever made I've found from fandom. Including my BFF, who made me look at Spike with more than a passing interest and learn to love him.
How many fandom communities are you a part of? A ton. And I find a new one about once a month.
Do you join fanfic or icon communities or only the general communities? both. All of the above.
How many fandom communities do you moderate? 8, mostly all fanfic related except for david_b_daily.
How often do you check fandom communities for new posts? As I scroll past while reading my flist.
Do you contribute to fandom? If so, by way of what? writing fanfic, squeeing over other's fic. mostly squeeing. heh.
Have you ever read (or been featured on) fandom_wank? I read it about once a week, see if there's anything funny to mock. And yes, I've been on there once. See Rude, Elitist Bitch comment above. Lesson learned. Now I flock my mean!grrl behavior.
What is one thing you wish you could change about fandom? I wish that using a qualified beta (not just your bff and/or biggest fan) was required before posting, at least to fic comms. I wish that people had more respect for the characters and if they still wanted to write something completely OOC, they'd realize it and change the names! And not post it as fanfic. Whoops! *slaps fingers*
