I'm feeling all nostalgic today for the LJ that used to be. Way back in 1999/2000, just after Six Degrees went bust.... I remember the thrill of meeting LJ friends IRL for the first time. How great it was adding people whose journals were fun and interesting and having new people add you because a comment that you wrote on someone else's journal struck a chord. I remember going to parties with LJers, flying across the country to meet folks, and having folks fly across the country to visit *me* and showing them around Los Angeles. And drama.... SO much drama. Sure, most of my LJ friends are on my Facebook now, but it's not even close to the same. I kind of wish that I had a little of that back.
