Where everybody knows your name

I sometimes (Well, okay, more than sometimes) think I really made a mistake when I planted my flag on live journal. At the time, there weren't exactly many options to choose from and I started this whole blogging thing on a lark. The problem is that I don't really feel like I belong on here. I don't seem to have any real attachment to the community and can't seem to find one. I've been a regular on quite a few forums and boards over the years, where I ramble on prolifically but I feel like an army of one on here. There are hundreds or thousands of communities on this site, but I've never found one that I feel like I fit into. That's sort of sad since it means that I never really get to interact with a wider range of people than a generally shrinking friend's list. The communities that I do belong to aren't ones where people tend to chat and I never seem to find any of interest when I search around.

I think part of the problem is that I don't really have any real driving interests that I feel like I can ramble on about day after day. I love discussing and arguing about politics, for instance, but I'm not sure I could drone on about it day after day. It requires too much vitriol and, believe it or not, even I can run out of bile. I tried signing up to some of those debate forums, but I burned out pretty quickly with too many slap fights going on simultaneously. There has to be something more than constant conflict.

So, since I can't seem to find a community that fits me, I figured i'd solicit suggestions. Where do you think I might fit and find a home? Any communities you know that could use yet another snarky hippie-hater?
