I sometimes will see entries that catch my attention while browsing my friends' Friends logs, and add those folks just to watch for a while. Fear not, you just struck me as being worth reading. And yes, I do have an eclectic friendslist, when I'm bored I tend to test that whole "degrees of separation" theory, or just chase tangents based on comments I liked in my friends' journals. It's led me in peculiar directions, but often to interesting new people!
Trivia: Kakou korakos, kakon oon -- "From a bad raven, a bad egg". It's an old Greek expression, most known from a story on rhetoric involving a philosopher named Korax and a pupil of his, Tisias. Greeks liked to play on words especially with names, tisias is the word for "egg".
