I've gone back 140 entries and I'm STILL not caught up on my friends list. I'm so far behind that I only knew about the LJ blackout from other people's "I survived the great LJ Blackout of 05" icons and such.
So I give up. I'm tired, I don't feel well, I'm swamped at work, I can't do it. So if you said anything important in the last week or two that you think I need to see, feel free to put a comment in this entry or email me. But I'm just not going any further back.
