My very own meme

Well, it appears to be shaping up to be yet another extraordinarily slow afternoon here at The Co-op, so I thought I would create my very own meme (woo hoo! Look at me! I'm a trendsetter!). It's based on questions I started pondering after an online conversation with germane about our friends lists. So the meme:

Tell me about your friends list. Do you know most of your friends In Real Life? Who have you known the longest? When did you meet them? Who have you met the most recently? When did you meet them? Who are you closest to? Any lovers (past or present) in there? Anything else you feel like sharing?

My friends list is pretty big, but I would say the solid majority are either people I actually know, or people I met on LJ via people I actually know.

Hands down, I've known ratphooey the longest. We met probably circa 1981 or so, and were very close friends for a number of years there. In 1985 or thereabouts she left town for school, and distance pretty much ended our friendship until we found each other online again.

The person I've known for the second longest amount of time (aside from carolbethington, who I met through ratphooey) is a bit of a toss up. I know I met both _aqualung_ and funcrunch around 1986 or so, but I honestly can't remember who came first. I knew funcrunch through theater classes I was taking at The Pittsburgh Playhouse, which actually makes me think it's possible I actually met her in 1984 or 1985. _aqualung_ I met through ... uh, "unusual circumstances," and that was definitely in early 1986.

The IRL person that I met the most recently is probably draw_in_yellow. We met through The Co-op. I can't recall specifically when -- definitely less than a year, but more than just a coupla months. Sometime over the summer maybe?

I can think of three former lovers on my friends list (do y'all want to be outed? I'm not sure whether you do or not, so feel free to out yourself in the comments if you're so inclined), and two more who used to be on my friends list, but are no longer (one is gone because he deleted his journal; the other is gone because he's a monumental prick). Then there are a good five or ten more who fall into random grey areas -- people I made out with at raves, the gay guy I made out with at a bar one night, the college friend I fooled around with once upon a time.

As for who I'm closest to ... well, the obvious choice is n0thingman, and I think that's pretty accurate. On any given day, if I felt like calling somebody on the phone just because I felt like some human interaction, the list of calls would most likely include n0thingman, pghwob and perhaps lurpy and peatasaurus as well.

So that's my meme. Feel free to copy and distribute it as your boredom dictates.

1981 would mean that we've known each other for 25 years!

Holy cats!

Well, figuring that I graduated from Falk in 1984, it seems likely that I would have met you during the 1981-82 school year. So yes, that would be 25 years ago now. Fuckin' a.

I think it was 1984 that I took my first Playhouse musical theatre class; you, ratphooey, and I were all in Lamont's Cole Porter tribute, "Debs in Dutch or Miss Favesham's Girls" if I recall correctly?

You recall astonishingly well.

And if I recall correctly, I think I have a cassette tape recording of the production somewhere ...

Well, while we're on the subject, I know the exact day we met. It was October 30, 1999 which was also the night we turned the clocks back that year (Magick!!). And I don't think we ever made out so I'm not in the grey area. We had one of the more normal relationships of all the people we were hanging out with in those day. Scary, huh? :)

Yes, you would *not* be the gay boy I made out with in a bar (that would be germane, back in 1993 or 1994).

October 30, 1999 would also be the exact day that I met ookii_risu, i3uffalogirl, coryspoerl, and probably a giant stack of other people. It was also the day that all of you guys met n0thingman.

We've all known each other for 7 years now. Wow.
