09:43 am - A friendslist meme
This looks like fun.

Gacked from rj_anderson, with her added restriction: due to time constraints I can volunteer to do this only with the first seven people who comment, but here goes:

Leave a comment and I'll tell you some things I associate with you. Reply with your name, favorite color, and birthday, and:

1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a dessert with which you and I would have a food fight.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me (maybe/maybe not).
5. I'll tell you my first memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of (your Patronus?).
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.

If I do this for you, post this on your journal/blog in turn, and do the same for others.

1. something random about you: you're such a spoiler tease!
2. song/movie that reminds me of you: Queen's You Are the Champions
3. a dessert with which you and I would have a food fight: red and blue Jell-O :-D
4. something that only makes sense to you and me (well, on this lj at least): Hi, Obsy! JD said you might not make to the chat today!
5. my first memory of you: the first time I ever entered a live-chat room, we talked about our new-found obsessions with Quantum Leap. That's my first memory of you as you.
6. what animal you remind me of (your Patronus?): a big, fluffy dog. No idea why.
7. something that I've always wondered about you: You seem pretty knowledgable about the Bible and Christianity. Are you a Christian, or were you raised in a Christian/church-going family?

I know, and I'm shameless about it. ;-)

2. song/movie that reminds me of you: Queen's You Are the Champions

Har har, but really that's a nice pick. It may be overplayed, as Webber pointed out, but it really is the perfect theme song. (and it's We are the...)

3. a dessert with which you and I would have a food fight: red and blue Jell-O :-D

I have this theory that blue Jell-O fuels greater-than-normal thought processes in humans. Definitely have to pick some up at the store today to test the hypothesis.

4. something that only makes sense to you and me (well, on this lj at least): Hi, Obsy! JD said you might not make to the chat today!

Yes, I was held up. You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to remove Jell-O stains from a hooded cloak.

5. my first memory of you: the first time I ever entered a live-chat room, we talked about our new-found obsessions with Quantum Leap. That's my first memory of you as you.

It was really me as Obsy, but Obsy was me and my opinions and dah! :-D

6. what animal you remind me of (your Patronus?): a big, fluffy dog. No idea why.

Could be because I love crude fiber and quadrapedal locomotion.

7. something that I've always wondered about you: You seem pretty knowledgable about the Bible and Christianity. Are you a Christian, or were you raised in a Christian/church-going family?

Yes and yes.

I totally associate that song with you. And-- *facepalm* I do know the title, I swear!

Hey, if it works for Carter there must be something to it. :-)

Yeah, my memory occasionall works backwards; it was that chat which enabled me to guess your dual identity. :-)

Are you a Christian, or were you raised in a Christian/church-going family?

Yes and yes.


Verry cool. I was never quite sure, and I often hesitate to ask online friends about relgion. :-P (darmok47 being an exception, since one of his first emails to me was to ask if I thought he'd go to hell. Much religious/philosophical discussion ensued.)

I so totally forgot about that chat and thought I was being so clever to fool you into thinking Paddy was Obsy...:-)

He asked you that?! Pad really knew how to open conversations, didn't he? :-) I think he felt a little insecure a few years ago.

Well, his first email was to see if I would beta read his Insane story, so we were on fairly good footing already. And he wasn't rude about it, or at least I didn't take it that way. He just seemed mighty interested, and I hadn't made any kind of secret of my beliefs on nitcentral, so....

Re: Ooh fun!

LOL, I can still spell your first name. :-)

1. something random about you: your parental home has upstairs/downstairs intercoms (yes, I was a poor child *g*)

2. song/movie that reminds me of you: High Countries, by Caedmon's Call

3. a dessert with which you and I would have a food fight: cheesecake. :-D

4. something that only makes sense to you and me: El Escudo. Go look it up, if you have to (I did, heh).

5. my first memory of you: sitting in the TWU cafeteria for two hours after dinner, being tutored in the mythology of The X-Files, and realizing that here sat a kindred spirit.

6. what animal you remind me of (your Patronus?): a phoenix (what did you *think* I was gonna say?)

7. something that I've always wondered about you: did you have any pets as a kid?

Re: Ooh fun!

El Escudo...that's 'Shield'. :) I knew it was our story, but I had to remind myself what it actually translated to. :p

Cheesecake! MMM! That'd be very sticky though :p

A Phoenix for my Patronus? Now that'd be neat!

And yes...I did have pets. We had rabbits when I was very small, but they got attacked by some stray dog. :( Then we had a guinea pig that got nicknamed 'Snuffles' because he made me sniff so much (we didn't realize my allergies fully til then) And I had newts, and turtles. And fish. Then I gave up on pets...

No more pets. How sad.

Dumbledore's Patronus was a phoenix; JKR said so. :-)

DOH! Well then I really must be Dumbeldore! I need to re-read those books!!

I'd like to have fish again, tropical fish and I wouldn't mind a a turtle perhaps...someday. Or a bird, but birds make a lot of noise. I think if I had one of those cool land turtles I'd have to name him Dumbledore or Gandalf, because turtles to me always look like little old wise men. Especially those land ones. :p

Oh boy... I don't know you very well yet, but I will try. :-)

1. something random about you: you seem to keep watch on what the media is reporting with regard to Christianity (specifically Catholic Christianity?)

2. song/movie that reminds me of you: Gattaca

3. a dessert with which you and I would have a food fight: banana cream pie

4. something that only makes sense to you and me (maybe/maybe not): I pray for people on my flist all the time.

5. my first memory of you: I saw one of your posts on synasthete7's flist, and it was about that guy in Canada talking about the need to regulate religion. O_o

6. what animal you remind me of (your Patronus): a tiger

7. something that I've always wondered about you: do you write fanfic? I just saw you post something about one....

1: Yes, I think we have to.

2: Er, I never saw that.

3: Make that rhum raisin and chocolate... Then again, don't bother, banana cream is good enough.

4: Thank you on everyone else's behalf. Mine too. I need all the prayer I can get.

5: I thought that was significant, not so much for what the person said, but for the forum in which he said it and the atmosphere in Canada now.

6: I sometimes brag that I was born in the month of the lion of the year of the tiger (24 July 1962). I do not believe in astrology, but I kind of like that.

7: Yes, lots. They are archived in FA under Fabio P.Barbieri and at ffnet under fpb. I just posted my most recent finished item in my LJ and would be glad of a review.

1. something random about you: you have the best collection of gen fic reccs that I've found anywhere on the 'Net

2. a song/movie that reminds me of you: The Matrix (yes, that *could* be due to the impact of Verity)

3. a dessert with which you and I would have a food fight: Spoo-flavored ice cream (because what else could one do with it?!)

4. something that only makes sense to you and me (maybe/maybe not): "Only write what you can't stand not to write." I'm sure that's partially paraphrased.

5. my first memory of you: I don't know if you were on CascadeTimes when I joined, but the first time I remember thinking of you as you was when I found your "reasons why people are anti-slash" page. Ecstatic, I emailed you...and you wrote back. [correct me if I'm mis-remembering this]

6. what animal you remind me of (your Patronus?): a cat--watching everything with intelligence, solitary in some things but a warm and pleasant companion

7. something I've always wondered about you: how many kids are in your family, and where in the birthing order do you fall?

Which I haven't updated for more than six months! I could blame RL I suppose, and the fact that I've been transferring all the old stuff into a new database with new report-scripts which should all be ready Real Soon Now... And then I can get to the three-inch stack of unreviewed stories, most of whom I expect will remain unreviewed...

"Only write what you can't stand not to write."

Ah yes, I remember that, now that you remind me...
Write what you can't stand not writing; write what you're driven to write, rather than writing what other people think you ought to write.

the first time I remember thinking of you as you was when I found your "reasons why people are anti-slash" page. Ecstatic, I emailed you...and you wrote back

My mail archives say you actually emailed me about the Sentinels For Christ page first, and it wasn't until your next email that the anti-slash stuff was mentioned. But that's probably being overly pedantic... 8-)

a cat--watching everything with intelligence, solitary in some things but a warm and pleasant companion

Aw. 8-)

how many kids are in your family, and where in the birthing order do you fall?

No kids, we aren't goats. (pokes out tongue)
I'm fifth of five, like my mother. Which probably explains why my family always referred to me as the "youngest" rather than the "baby" -- a fact which I'd never really paid attention to until some well-meaning contemporary of my parents, at their 50th, had the following exchange with me:

"Oh, you're the baby of the family, are you?"
"I'm the youngest, not the baby."
"Oh, the baby is always the baby."

Thank goodness for my parents not to have inflicted that on me!

See, I just figured it was RL. :-) So while I will be all excited when you update, I can wait.

Write what you can't stand not writing; write what you're driven to write, rather than writing what other people think you ought to write.

It's such a splendid watershed for fic ideas. I think I should paint it on my wall so I can see it when I'm typing. :-)

My mail archives say you actually emailed me about the Sentinels For Christ page first, and it wasn't until your next email that the anti-slash stuff was mentioned. But that's probably being overly pedantic... 8-)

Ah, see, that's why I said I wasn't totally sure. That whole time is a bit mixy in my head, what with CT, SfC, and finding your site and plowing through the TS reccs with total abandon. *facepalm*

No kids, we aren't goats. (pokes out tongue)

*hyperventilating from laughter* Oh, man, you have no idea how much that took me back. The conservative homeschooling "groups" my family was involved with when I was growing up had a thing against the word "kid". As if using it were somehow cursing your children to behave in wild and unruly ways. I decided early on that such a thought was stupid, and that I would use the word "kid" whenever it pleased me.

Now I'm curious. Is "kid" not a usual alternate for "children" where you live?

I'm fifth of five, like my mother. Which probably explains why my family always referred to me as the "youngest" rather than the "baby"

Ah, bless your family. What an excellent way to approach it.

Thanks! Though I can't remember if any of them are TS recs...

Then you would stop noticing it.

Is "kid" not a usual alternate for "children" where you live?

Oh it is, I just felt like doing a bit of punning. That, and it does seem odd to refer to grown, adult, children as "kids". Whether it's just me, I tend to think of "kids" as just referring to children who are still of child age, rather than children in general. So, in my idiolect, there are no "kids" in our family, because we're all grown up. But it still makes sense to me to say that "my brother has four kids", because said children aren't adults yet. Do you see what I mean?

And you really should make a GenPride icon! Except that I suddenly had a flash over to the Sime~Gen universe, which wasn't the sort of "gen" we were talking about!

2. a song/movie that reminds me of you: LotR: The Two Towers

3. a dessert with which you and I would have a food fight: treacle tart (I have no idea what that's like, btw)

4. something that only makes sense to you and me (maybe/maybe not): mellon (waits for reply)

5. my first memory of you: Other than seeing you post on LICC, and a few places around NitCentral...oh, hang on. I think I may have first realized you as you over on the Young Jedi board! But I was going to cite the time you sent me your first off-site email, to ask if I would look at your PD Insane story.

6. what animal you remind me of (your Patronus): wolverine (small, lithe, sneaky if they choose, but ferocious and tenacious)

7. something that I've always wondered about you: how did you come to NitCentral?
