A word about adding Feel free to add me if you like. I might not notice because I don't really keep up with this. I also tend to friend people whose journals I simply enjoy reading. If I've done this, you're under no obligation to add me back. I won't be hurt at all. If you really don't want me to friend you, please let me know.
