The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really we know little about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don’t know about you.No, the problem is giving assignments to other people ... particularly when everybody and his dog is asking the same essay questions. Am I going to put a lot of time and thought into forming a serious, uniquely personalized question for each and every person who posts this cookie-cutter meme?
No. Especially when the request itself is a generic block of text that everyone's copying and pasting into theit journals. If you're not even taking the time to formulate your own request that you're tagging your whole friends list with, then how can you expect all of the rest of us to put in the labor required to answer it?
Plus, we're all lazy bastards who don't really care anyway. We, all of the people on your friends list, have a super-secret community that we use to talk about you behind your back. In fact, I'm cross-posting this message there right now. Boy, will we have fun with this one! Too bad you won't see it.
