I have had at least two or three occasions now where I have noticed that I missed LJ posts from friends that I really shouldn't miss... so after painful consideration, I have decided to prune my list somewhat, so that I don't miss what should be the bleedin' obvious. It was like pulling teeth, or choosing which digits to slice off my body. There is no good choice, of course. What is also bleedin' obvious (to me) is that I will still visit all the dearly departed sites in my "friend of" list semi-regularly. I now will perform a rare action for me, LJ... I will emote.
