MEMEtime: And you are

I was thinking of getting all pithy and changing the text, but I'm too tired:

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know really well. 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.

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.

And if you friended me but never introduced yourself, now's your chance.

I've been on your list for years now... it's as good a time as any to tell you something about myself! Heh.

Hmm. I have played the cello for about a year and a half now.
I adore fruit. My favorite is a nectarine when it's in season and perfectly ripe.
I've had the same shoe size since I was about 12 or so. Same height, too.

I'll stop there. Your turn!

We've got a peach tree in our back yard.

my nickname as a child was "mega-mouth"

Heh. In Indian Guides, when I was a child, I was "Little Running Mouth".

Ah... they just called me turtle...

i live in a 600 sq ft apartment with one other human and two cats.
my job this summer consists mostly of reading novels.
when we moved, we had 1200 lbs of books. now we have many more.

I spent a week in Hawaii once and I can remember almost nothing about it.

I know I was on Maui but I'm not sure of the other. Can't remember...

In the never-ending "It's a small world after all."

- We met as I was performing the Rite of Luna.
- My first (and only other) rite I performed was Sol with nitemarehipigrl's husband in Utah.
- nitemarehipigrl also worked with a guy named Sno, who was the first person to have the role of Satyr in our Luna production.

This shouldn't be such a big deal - the OTO has how many active members? - but the fact that there are five years and three states in between makes it remarkable in my mind.

I once sailed around the Bahamas with my family for two weeks.
I have hepled a mini horse give birth.

I have Invader Zim magnets and a letter openner stuck to my cubicle cabinet.

I find smart men the most attractive. No matter how handsome someone is, if thety're not smart, they don't get my business!

You got me the lj, which turned 3 next week, you must be so proud. Since when you do IM me from time to time, you're always asking me what I'm doing up so late :p Well, I can't go to bed early if I have to be up early because I will wake up late cause the more sleep I get, the more out of it I am.

Wouldn't touch that question until I'm about 65 or so but, I live in Bremerton, WA, am partners with brandywilliams and tedgill and look forward to meeting you; hopefully when you visit us at Vortex Camp. Or perhaps NOTOTCON in August.

I'm Unitarian Universalist.
Any shade of purple is my favorite color.
I'm training to be a sex educator... and a librarian. :)

I do adore a well-made corndog.

Current abode: Kauai
Thing I like best about Kauai: The rain, the wind, and the mountains.
In Hawaiian, town I live in means: "Feet tired from walking"
Why this is relevant: I probably do too much hiking for my own good.
Number 1 reason to NOT live in Hawaii: Lack of good tech jobs
Neat trivia about Hawaii: Everybody is a minority here

All righty...

I'm a shameful Harry Potter fan fiction addict. I've even started writing it. It's like reading was the gateway drug, and now I'm hooked. I feel like a dirty old lady drooling over teenagers. It wasn't so long ago that *I* was a teenager! What happened? When did I get old?

A few months ago, I suddenly realized that I had friends that were five years younger than me, and it was okay, because they were adults. I'm old enough that I'm surprised when I realize that I have 18 year olds as friends. I'm almost in my mid-twenties! That's so close to thirty that I want to hyperventilate!

My daughter is going into the first grade this year. She's going to be six in August. She's so big and so smart and she's her own little person. It's amazing. I feel all stereotypical when I say things like "It seems like yesterday, she was just a little babbie in diapers..." But it's true! She needs to stop getting older! Soon, she'll be hitting puberty and I'll have to explain tampons and sex and contraceptives. Then there's the talk about drugs, and the "do as I say, not as I do" crap... Then she'll move out and I'll *definitely* be old.

Will she have kids? Will I have to decide if I'm Nana or Granny or Mamie? Will she lose her mind and go fundie Xian and denounce me and I'll never see those grandchildren? Will she even be straight? Will she inherit my manic-depression? Will she agree to take the meds, or will she refuse and suffer like I did?

Oy. I'm supposed to be worrying about my next party and my job at Starbucks and borrowing money from my mom and finishing college, not a college fund for my kid, and trying to dredge a career out of the employment wasteland of Tucson, and buying a house, and wondering if I'll ever go back to college.

Thinking about the future sucks.

I once won a dozen glazed donuts at the late Ken's Donuts because I knew where the South American red fire ant entered America.

(It was Mobile, Alabama.)

Lately I've been discovering new aspects to my being and while my core self has not changed, feel like a part of me is growing and evolving.

Wierd huh, lol.

Cordelia Chase was my least favorite Whedon character and I kinda disliked Gunn. I watched the Angel episode, "Billy" today and now I like them both. Fred still kinda bugs me though.
