This Journal Is Strictly Friends Only

By Upsa-Daisy

Due to Unfortunate and Unforeseen Circumstances, this journal is now Strictly Friends Only.

Comments to this post are screened, but if you leave a reply with details as to how I know you etc, I will consider adding your journal.

Note: Existing journals will remain friended, because you all rock so very much.

My One-Liner Collection

I collect One-Liners, Taglines, Beautiful, Useful and Not-So-Useful Proverbs et cetera. Here's my current collection, in no particular alphabetical mostly alphabetical order - except that I'm going to try and keep separate the ones that you need to be a geek to understand. This will be linked from my userinfo. Suggestions and Additions are always welcome.
