Stolen from koga
Oi! Comment on this post and:

1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll challenge you to try something.
3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you.
4. I'll tell you something I like about you.
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you.
8. I'll tell you a song that reminds me of you.


If I do this for you, you could, if you want to, post this in your journal

Without the Prozac, I'm: sheepish

1. You're amusing when you talk about your paganism. It's like you're HappyBubblyHeathen(TM) or something.
2. Hmm..I don't think that I know you well enough to give you a *real* challenge. So, uhh..try and freak the mundanes *MORE*. They need it. Trust me. :)
3. Blue. (Only color I ever remember you wearing. :)
4. See #1. You have fun with your religion. :)
5. You gave me a lift to a BART Station after I passed out during PotC after Peter died.
6. Again with the not knowing well enough to associate you with an animal. Sorry. :P
7. Why snugharbor?
8. I'd say something snarky here, but to be honest, nothing actually make me think of you. :)
lwood From: lwood Date: June 5th, 2007 05:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
1. You're amusing when you talk about your paganism. It's like you're HappyBubblyHeathen(TM) or something.

*laugh* Fair enough. Like many others, I enjoy my faith, and enjoy sharing it whenever asked.

2. Hmm..I don't think that I know you well enough to give you a *real* challenge. So, uhh..try and freak the mundanes *MORE*. They need it. Trust me. :)

Well, now, they still outnumber we happy freaky weirdos--and it's also important to freak over time, not on first impression. Kinda like the metaphor of boiling frogs...

3. Blue. (Only color I ever remember you wearing. :)

*laugh* Spot on! Only you forgot black! ;)

4. See #1. You have fun with your religion. :)

'strewth!

5. You gave me a lift to a BART Station after I passed out during PotC after Peter died.

*grin*

6. Again with the not knowing well enough to associate you with an animal. Sorry. :P

No worries...

7. Why snugharbor?

Most obviously, it's a reference to one of Heinlein's later novels, The Number of the Beast.

8. I'd say something snarky here, but to be honest, nothing actually make me think of you. :)

That's fair; we don't interact very often.

1. You're HUGE!!
2. Hug three bunnies at once.
3. Purple. You have a purple tattoo.
4. Geek. Geek who likes scotch.
5. You kicked me out of #DSM for talking about eating Welsh Rerbit.
6. ...
7. ....what is, exactly, up with the bunnies?
8. *sigh* I'm bad at this music thing, aren't I?

Do me.
blackcoat From: blackcoat Date: June 5th, 2007 06:42 am (UTC) (Link)
(Just as a side note: Innat wossernames job?)

1. Despite being Jewish by JLaw, you're an Ayran Poster Child.
2. Try and keep up drinking with me.
3. Blondie.
4. You're the geekiest family member I've got.
5. This little blonde boi in a coat that I desperately wanted that we picked up from an airport.
6. Hmm...how can I twist this into making fun of the fact that you're blonde?
7. Why on *earth* do you like the East Coast? What is *WRONG* with you?
8. Joy, VNV. Totally your fault that I like them.
hyuga From: hyuga Date: June 5th, 2007 11:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
Whether I keep up or not, we do need to have drinks sometime.

Also, why is it my fault you like VNV Nation?
blackcoat From: blackcoat Date: June 5th, 2007 11:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
'cause in Maine I listened to Archangel and Joy on your subnotebook, and totally dug them. Your fault.

And drinking works better when we're on the same coast.
hyuga From: hyuga Date: June 5th, 2007 11:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
What? I thought I got those songs from you :0
blackcoat From: blackcoat Date: June 5th, 2007 11:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
LoL. Nope. :)

MEEEEE
blackcoat From: blackcoat Date: June 5th, 2007 08:21 am (UTC) (Link)
1. You totally sound exactly like my friend Tony. It's weird. Every damn time I talk to you, I have to make sure that I dialed the right number. (which is strange, being as I haven't spoken to him since, uhh...'03?)
2. You are hereby challenged to Survive Finals!
3. Shutup, Red.
4. You don't take it personally when I do stupid shit that pisses you off, nor do you hold it against me. Which is awesome, 'cause that means that I don't have to censor myself with you. :)
5. "Uhh..who the fuck is she? And why is she Danished?"
6. Choo-Choo.
7. ..you know, the only things I actually want to ask you, I don't feel comfortable asking where others can see the question/response. And now is *totally* not the time. :)
8. Bastards on Parade - Murphy's
From: quixotesco Date: June 5th, 2007 03:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
You barely know me well enough to scratch up a few answers, but I'll admit I'm curious!
blackcoat From: blackcoat Date: June 5th, 2007 05:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's strange. I'd say that I know you very well, ten years ago. :-)
From: quixotesco Date: June 5th, 2007 05:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Definitely. And I you, although perhaps not quite as well, and by now I have lost a lot to the fog of, um, war? snort.
blackcoat From: blackcoat Date: June 5th, 2007 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
1. You look better with a beard.
2. Think outside your bias.
3. Green. And Khaki.
4. You're smart. I can exercise my vocabulary with you, and you don't complain about it.
5. Sitting around with you (and Tony, and Eric, and Rob, and...Jake?) playing D&D in the library at Prison Hell.
6. You actually epitomize a Human Ape to me. I think it's partially your dependence on language and pedantry that forces you above 'animal' status.
7. Do you regret not going directly into Grad School from undergrad?
8. Smoke Two Joints - Sublime. ;-)
From: quixotesco Date: June 5th, 2007 06:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
That was very cool, thanks.

I do not regret it, although I have some guilt and worry about STILL not having gone. Even just in terms of personal growth, I am really glad I did not launch into that three years ago. When you include my professional growth in research and simply in job-having and responsibility, it seems overwhelmingly likely that I could have flubbed it straight out of school. (To this pedant, "flub" means "underachieved".)
From: quixotesco Date: June 5th, 2007 06:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
PS, re: pedantry, I am so guilty. Before reading this I had just posted on another journal with the word 'apophthegmatic'.

strangely compelling

:P
blackcoat From: blackcoat Date: June 6th, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: strangely compelling

1. You bought me a melonscoop.
2. Spend 24 hours apart from your husbad without feeling sad.
3. Brown. ;-)
4. You try to warn me when I'm doing stupid shit.
5. Arrumm...? Hmm...dunno. I mean, I can remember when it was that I would have had to have met you (I went into the MBE to fax resumes around right after I moved back to cali)
6. NotTheBunny.
7. How can you *stand* The Boy?
8. People might take this wrong, but "Scotty Doesn't Know" :)
