2004/11/13 23:55:00 - Stuff Meme!
I don't particularly like the "This is the problem with LJ" meme, so I'm going to recycle this one from last year instead, which I think does the job better...

I know very little about some of the people on my friends' list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your fic, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes spinach."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal, if you feel like it.

I'm currently using my computer tower as a spare coffee table, it seems.

That works very well (assuming that you haven't got it snuck under your desk!).

I'm actually a fan of most (well-executed) goth / heavy metal music despite not having much of it on CD. I used to be able to discuss about it at length but have forgotten 90% of what I know.

I think I've forgotten 90% of everything that I've ever known.

Thanksgiving is truly my favourite holiday of the year. There's really no reason it should be such, as the day is quite formulaic: watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on tv from 9am to noon, eating too much of the same foods we ate too much of last year, and then spending the rest of the day looking at sales papers for the next day's big shopping events and watching some Christmas-themed film to mark the official start of the Christmas season. (Usually this will be Miracle on 34th Street, though sometimes it is A Christmas Story.)

I am left-handed, even putting my mouse on the left of the keyboard.

My favourite beer is Flowers India Pale Ale. But I'm happy with Timothy Taylor's IPA.

Oh, and I actually enjoy VBA, Visual Basic for Applications.

I have an inordinate fondness for beans. I bite the skin around my fingernails. I can't sleep too close to anyone - I need to cocoon myself in the blankets to sleep properly.

There, that's three. :)

I am now more fond of Pixar than Disney (I checked my responce to your meme last time around). Mostly because of The Incredibles which rocked.

Trying to come up with something I'm fairly certain you don't know already is quite hard. Erm...I played football for my primary school.

One wonders if one can think of anything at all that you don't know (other than that I'm awake, which, since you are asleep, you clearly don't know at the moment!)

We could try I like nisperos and chirimoyas, but that might be seen as cheating, since they aren't English fruits.

How about... nah, I can't think of... hang on... I have always wanted to learn to fly, but I didn't do RAFcadets because their uniforms sucked, and their drill was sloppy.

Don't know.

Go down to your local gliding club, and ask about a the cost of a lesson in a two-seater glider. You may find that it is (and I quote) the most fun that you can have with your trousers on.

If I was back in the Midlands, I'd be back at Husbands Bosworth airfield. Trial lessons are about seventy quid and there's an evening programme in the summer. Getting your pilot's certificate will cost hundreds (but not thousands) of pounds, and is cheaper if you do the 1-week intensive course, bunking down at their clubhouse. Wish I had the time!
