Do you judge people by their links? I find myself doing this more and more lately... possibly because more and more people are adding a list of links to their diary...

You can learn a lot about someone by the diaries they like to read. Do they prefer angsty teens? Suicidal meladramatists? Free-and-easy party people? Spiritual seekers? Humourists? I don't know exactly WHAT you can tell about someone by their preferences, but it's got to mean something, right?

If someone's list is similar to mine, I think, oh, a good person. If certain people show up on someone's list, I automatically think less of that diarist. And sometimes the other way around. If I'm reading a stupid diary that links to a good one, I think, how dare you! You do not deserve to read that goodness! And if a good diary links to other good diaries, I think, ah, all is well and right with the world.

I follow links, and see how far I can get clicking from page to page. My record is eight diaries. And sometimes I try to see what the biggest circle I can make is. Usually it's only around four.

What exactly is a "mutual admiration society," anyway?

And now, it's time for Quoted Quote day! (Quotes from diaries quoting other people! Does it get any better than this?)

When I get out of my beat-up ol' GEO at a club or something, and everyone's laughing at it, I just tell 'em, well, I don't need a big car, because I have a big dick! HUGE!!!
