This is now a friends-only journal. Partly because it's occasionally indiscreet and mostly because if I want the world to read something I publish it. This is where I try out ideas which I later realise are hideously embarrassing.

If you are interested in reading the opinions of a vain, ambitious, tough, feminine, lesbian professional historian and development economist then please leave me a message. If you are a publisher and would like to see that turned into the jacket blurb of a pornographic novel, then you should definitely leave me a message.

[livejournal.com profile] slantedtruth sent me this way - I live in Cambridge (and work here, too). I'm not a crazy stalker or anything - but I need more lj friends to make work go faster...

You're added! But I'm afraid you'll be very disappointed.

Of course you may actually know who I am... which may make it more - or less - interesting.

You and I have lots of shared friends! Well, you have lots of LJ friends and most of mine are on your list.

I love your talent - of course you're added.

Hooray! Can't wait to get to e-know you! ;)

And I admire your brain, your accomplishments. Can't even imagine making it through a PhD program...

hey, all I can say is that if Amarama recommends you so highly, I certainly want in. Plus one of my oldest (real life) friends in the world is already on you friends list.

Dear Gordonzola,

I admire you very much, partly for being such a good friend to the Mama Superior (and I've read how highly she thinks of you) and partly because you appreciate cheese. My cousin sells fine cheese - perhaps you know him.

I would be honoured to call you an LJ friend, though my LJ is very dull and not nearly so much fun as my bitchy comments in everyone else's journals. Not that I would ever bitch in yours. Yours is far too effortlessly elegant, even when you are writing about barfing, and, being English, that is a quality I value over almost everything else.

does your cousin sell fine cheese in the US or elsewhere? The US cheese world is small, mean, and competitive. You never know.

But when did I write about barfing? Were you just skimming titles to be nice? Or have you been reading long enough to have seen my food poisoning post? But you're right, you Brits do love your barf. It's one of my personal fave traits of your people.

but bitchy comments are great when warranted or funny. I can't wait to check out your journal.

I read Amarama's recommendation & some of your replies in her LJ & am hoping you'll add me as a friend. (I'll even start using lj-cuts again <:).

oh this is exciting! just took a look around your LJ. I lived at a place called the post-colonial institute in Australia for a bit and one of my housemates was from India...I learned so many things there...the white looking tip on the end of my nose is really...white (hee hee)

I'm trying to find a post on your phd & what it's in.

My LJ is rather anti-brilliant right now <: good to meet'cha...

The exact title of my PhD is a closely guarded secret.... because it's very very boring.

You are in the middle of it? I bet you'll find it more interesting once it's finished.

hi there -- i found you though susanstinson and so enjoyed how and what you wrote there, on the subject of flesh. can i keep you?

From: [identity profile] highfemme.livejournal.com
Thank you! Please do keep me. I need regular feeding, occasional encouragement, and at least four hours of intellectually demanding conversation a day. I used to need about a thousand dollars a week pocket money as well, but I seem to be over that now.

I love your LJ - sorry to hear about your bulimic friend. Mine is rather dull and mostly work related, though I conduct occasional lightning raids on other people's journals, depositing my emotional treasures in comments like a cat offering up a disemboweled nightingale on a doorstep.

Hi, I saw you as linked through pure_juice, but have seen you elsewhere through other friends we have in common. I would love to read more, but of course respect your privacy if you like to keep your lj world small.

But, here I am for you to decide.

Hello, HF! Julie here. I've switched journals and wanted to let you know in case you'd like to add me.

Miss you. I hope you're well.

Hi-- I'd love to read your blog. We have my favorite friends in common.

Welcome! I post rarely, and I'm very English - but being English, I can feel glad that I post rarely and therefore take up little space...

I found you through [livejournal.com profile] purejuice. Though I've been very dull lately, I still do read LJ and even comment occasionally. I'd love to be added to your friends list.

Gotta love the gardening and the heteronormativity. To us English, that pretty much describes gay heaven.

Hope you find it interesting.

hi, we have a couple of friends in common, and purejuice is repping one of your entries, so i though i'd friend you...

Considerate blog! I sincerely love how it' s easy on my eyes and the facts are well written. I am wondering how I can be notified whenever a new delivery has been made. I organize subscribed to your rss feed which should do the manoeuvre! Possess a fine hour!
