04:25 am - UNEXPECTED POPULARITY!
So, in like the last two days, I seem to have been friended by half a dozen people. Two I friended first, so this doesn't count, but for the rest of you:

Just who are you guys, and why are you friending me?

I'm not opposed per se, I'm just mildly puzzled by the sudden rush of friending. Did I sign up to a friending meme in my sleep or something?

(For everyone who doesn't care about who's friending me, this post comes complete with an adorable kitten icon for your pleasure.)

Everyone deserves kittens!

...Yes, I revel in online kittens because my building doesn't allow pets.

[stares] The kitten is chasing its tail. Pardon me, I'll be transfixed for the next several minutes.

I'm poking around Who fandom and adding people who might not depress me as s4 goes on. Heh. (Am also splorch over at JF.)

Oh, not depress you how?

I suppose my depressingness depends on how I feel about the show. Which is mostly love, though I am... less than fond of Rose, so I may get a bit snarky at anything related to her.

Anyone who is generally positive, or at least wants to love the show, are aces. I'm too new to do anything but flail and squee right now, but so many people are bitter and it makes me sad! I do like Rose, but I like just about everybody. And find them all eminently snarkable at one point or another. Mostly I just love Donna liek whoa.

Anyway, I like reading episode reviews that aren't long screeds of hate against , and yours fit the bill!

Personally, I'm a great big Martha fan (and Mickey), but Donna looks to be rather fun.

And on the whole, I tend to be mostly positive towards the show at large (particularly when, as with the most recent ep, they seems to have put effort into fixing mistakes in the past - ie. the Doctor acknowledging he wasn't as good to Martha as he should have been).

It's the fandom that gets my heckles up, particularly when it tries to make things All About Rose. (Martha didn't deserve it last series, and Donna doesn't now)

I keep trying to add people where I find that I really like what they have to say for themselves. I can't remember the exact trigger point(s), but I do remember within the last day or so saying to myself, "You know, I really need to add drakyndra to my friend's list."

I also like to make new friends. Hee.

Actually, you are somewhat familiar - I've seen you on friends posts, and lifeonmartha. So it's not quite as random as the others.

I think it's the timing that made me wonder. Everyone at once...

Haha, you inspired me to do that and it's as great as I imagined it would be! My computer didn't like it at first, though...choked a little bit to start off with, but it seems to have accepted them now =D

If you're experiencing an Unexpected Surge of Popularity at the moment, I may just join it as I've been wanting to friend you for ages (this need didn't at all increase when I saw you on Ravelry, either)

Ravelry? I have no idea what you mean.

...And that's serious, not a joke. No idea what Ravelry, sure you aren't confusing me with someone else?

*looks exceedingly embarrassed* It is entirely possible. What is entirely impossible, however, is that I confused your awesomeness in general Who matters. *pretends the first part never happened*

Dawwww, kitty!

And people say they hate cats. Who could look at that and say with complete honesty that they hate cats?

Weirdos, that's who.

As a completely unbiased observer*, I can say with all authority that people who hate cats are freaks of nature.


*Note: This is a lie.

Hahaha, they fair are. I challenge anyone to a duel to hate cats after seeing cute cute kittens.

Although a friend of mine hates cats, and she thinks there's something wrong with me because I love cats and dogs equally. Apparently, this just Does Not Happen.

Indeedy.

I will admit I'm a very definite cat person, and am not the biggest dog fan. But little puppies are utterly adorable.

I love dogs! I especially love my dogs, I go horrendously and pathetically gooey when I see my dogs. Especially because one of them in particular is always *so* happy to see us and needs to be next to one of us at all time, it's quite sweet.

Maybe it's a baby animal thing...because most baby animals are far, far too cute for words. Like baby seals or baby polar bears...I want one!

Kitten!

Well, I haven't friended you, but I read your meta on Donna and What She Knows, and it is just the sort of thing I like. So, I was thinking of friending you ... and then saw this. So I won't, if you're a bit creeped out by the sudden attention :D

No, I'm fine with people friending me. I mightn't friend back immediately, but still...

I just found it weird that it was a whole bunch of people in a really short time. And this was before I commented at a recent friending meme.

Yeah, I can see why that might be a bit unnerving.
