Andrei in the office

meme time

Cribbed from a posting by shaktiqueen and prizmdonna

10 years ago, I was

1. LOCATION: The bottom floor of a block busted house in Shadyside on a street called Fair Oaks. (The first time)

2. SEX: My first exposure to poly. It was a sine wave. No one really knew what poly was but we were all supposedly doing it... wrong.

3. RELATIONSHIPS: Living with R and H, and A. R was a primary, had 2 on again off again secondaries. H was a secondary, had her own R as a primary. Things were getting messy and R was on the way of replacing me...

4. APPEARANCE: I was 141 pounds. beginning to have receding hairline and the beard was full. Glasses. I was a geek's geek without the cool.

5. LEISURE ACTIVITIES: Movies, SCA, work. No really a lot to remember.

6. PETS: Ugh, that was the outbreak of Pie the all-mother and MacDermot the endless Tom. It was a damned good thing the other two were fixed. 10 years ago was the first litter (2) of Pie while Milo and Harpo looked on.

7. FOOD: Was just learning about sushi. Always been a slave to chinese. Hosted my first Thanksgiving.

8. CREATIVITY: Theatre had abandoned me. Several bad experiences. Showboat, No job in Louisiana, bad community group. Was auditioning for local community in Pgh... Would eventually wind up in "The Foreigner"

9. SOCIAL: Some SCA, was on the verge of a social elevation but had a few friends from SCA.

10. MONEY: 2 years in to my master plan of 10 years to massive wealth. I was getting minimum wage as a temp doing overnights at a bank. Woo... :-p

I really didn't like the 90s

Friendster, reloaded

Well, I've been playing with friendster.com for a few days. Kind of neat.

http://www.friendster.com/join.jsp?invite=209899 to join (I am listed as "Andrei Tapolow")

I've managed to find about 15 people in the first few days that I know personally (This mean, interacted them outside the net)

One of the interesting features of the site is the testimonial. This is basically where you can write a blurb about someone on your list. That person then gets approval or refusal rites. If they accept it, it shows up on their profile. I got a really nice comment from a coworker. Very surprised and touched in that warm'n'fuzzy kinda way.

So, to those of you already on friendster on my list. Take a look at some of the options... Play with it and see what you think

For those of you on friendster who know me in person (and don't despise me ;) feel free to send an add request

The rest of you.. give the thing a spin. I've received 0 spam as a result.. so far. (YMMV)

Have at it :)

Comments so far:
Well, the actors have been identified. I don't think it'll take a great amount of time to put them together. :)

Here's some of the wrong guesses that have come in:
Morcombe & Wise - (I have to admit I have no clue who they are...)
Monty Python based
Finnian's rainbow
Same guy, different times.

Okay... Last chance...
