|07:54 pm - So That One Day in Your Memoirs|
Boy, we sure had a lot of fun last night, eh? Buffy even stopped by!
Anyway, it occurred to me that I completely forgot to celebrate my one-year LJversary. That's right, peoples: I made my first LJ post on January 29, 2005. At the time, this journal existed solely to promote Protein Angst. I snagged twenty or thirty friends (that is, people who already knew me) within a couple days. Since then, I've posted, like, six blog posts, friended over two hundred people, and been friended by over three hundred people. I certainly didn't expect it, and I know I owe it all to Veronica Mars. You guys rock.
Shout-outs to allthelivesofme and foresthouse, my very first LiveJournal friends (that is, people I met through LJ), who have still not seen VM.
Some sort of Polter-Cow Retrospective would be fun, I suppose, but GG is on in five minutes. Perhaps later.
So: there's been a lot of new blood since Austin, and I know there are five or six people on my flist who couldn't care less about VM, so the following exercise is a win-win situation.
I want you to hit me as hard as you can.
Wait, fuck, wrong exercise.
I want you to ask me a question as hard as you can.
One question. Because there's a fucking lot of you. It can be about me, my journal, anything. Well, almost anything. Point is, this is a way for you to get to know me. I'll answer all the questions in a post...eventually.
There's one more thing, though: along with your question, I want you to tell me one random fact about yourself. These facts will be judged by a tribunal of radioactive monkeys, and the person with the best fact wins a prize. The prize being I will write a post on the subject of his or her choice.
While you think of your question and random fact, please take this very, very serious poll.
Which are cooler: ninjas or pirates?
If you adopted a sea lion, what would you name it?
I don't believe in adoption
I don't believe in sea lions
What is your favorite curse word?
What is the answer to this question?
Current Mood: whimsical
Current Music: Joanna Newsom - Sprout and the Bean
YOUR QUESTION: What SHOULD have happened with the fucking spy pen?
And your RANDOM MARS FACT: I'm good at standardized tests, having aced the ACT and missed a single question on the SAT.
Dude. The monkeys are very intrigued.
I will see it, promise. LOL I am so behind on my DVD-buying. I have VM to watch, and two friends who are going to skin me or something if I don't see Firefly veryverysoon. . .
Question: Hm. Well, I'll go with the online equivalent of scrutinizing the bookshelf-- What are some of your favorite novels?
Random fact: I'm really insecure about my singing voice, so people can know that I'm really comfortable with them if I'll sing along to something in their presence. :-)
Question: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Shit, Wrong Question. Here we go: What would your perfect 24 hours consist of?
Random Fact: I hate mayonnaise
Question for you, my dear: If you had to give up either the television or the internet, which would you choose and why? Be descriptive!
Random fact abouts me: (And I know it won't be the greatest, but I have to play!) I burn CDs I buy so that I can listen to the burned ones incase (or rather when) I scratch them and they start to skip. I do this so I don't have to cry or buy new CDs because my favorite song is not right anymore. Yeah, I'm a freak.
Once a month, I dont turn the television on at all.
And your question....
You get to recast one role on V-Mars (at least semi-regular); who, why and with whom?
And to celebrate I will send you a bouquet of monkeys.
Your question... How many licks DOES it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Lollipop?
I'm glad we met Sunil. You lighten my days. Thank you.

*throws confetti for your aniversary*
Your question: If you could live anywhere in the U.S., where would it be and why? What about the World?
Random fact: Hmm. I have a four-inch titanium rod in my back, along with a couple mesh cages where the vertebrae discs should be. And no, I don't set off the airport metal detectors. And no, I don't know why.
Question: what is your favourite thing about ME?
Fact: I'm not actually as self-centered as the above question would have you think.
Actually random fact: I have bad feet. Fallen arches, bunions, curly toes, the works. They are very shameful to me.
Happy 1 year anniversary!
Question: What actor would you want to play you in the movie of your life?
Randon fact: I can't sleep with socks on. I feel like my feet are suffocating

Aww, happy LJversary!
Question: You're on a roadtrip and the CD player is stuck on repeat. What song does it keep playing over and over again?
Random fact: I'm afraid of bees.
I'm afraid of bees.
Same here. One of the few reasons I like winter is because I know I don't have to worry about those freaky little things. lol
*bounces* so much love for Reginald!
And so much love for YOU. I didn't get this much love on my 5 year LJversary.
Um, okay, a question. *looks at ingredient list* what the fuck is plant sterol?
Or, for something that can't be found on Google, when you were in grade school what did you want to grow up to be?
Oh, and I need to post a random fact about myself? There's a lot of crap to share. But you're new, so we'll start off with my basic factoid, which is that I was born with 12 fingers, 12 toes and partially webbed feet.
Holy crap! You're definitely in the running.
One Question, One Fact
Question: Evangline Lilly or Jennifer Garner?
Fact: I chatted up Jennifer Capriati after one of her first ever matches at Wimbledon, and her mother gave me evil looks.
But pirates sail the open seas! And pillage and raid and get booty! And say, "Arr!"
Question: Given the infinite nature of space-time and the finite amount of matter that we know to exist, and assuming that one's own consciousness is fundamentally bound by the limits of both one's natural genetic make-up and the cultural indoctrination undergone in the formative years, who is more likely to be elected Grand Poobah of the World in 2010: Kylie Minogue or Rasputin?
Random factoid: I firmly believe that anyone who eats potatoes is a communist.
Re: forgot to do this
Ha. I was going to say! For cripes' sake, I give Cimmy an opportunity to learn more about me and she doesn't take it?
Question: What skill/talent/quality do you wish you had but don't (at least right now)? (Acceptable answers do include, "I'm perfect as is.")
Fact: I have virtually no caffiene tolerance; as of a year ago I could pull an all-nighter on a single can of diet Pepsi (haven't tried recently).
Oh, I am totally going to steal from someone above cos now I want to know: what IS your favourite random fact about Australia and why?
Random about me: I am FROM Australia and I think vegemite is better than both coffee and chocolate. (well...the chocolate thing is a close call)
I didn't know you were from Australia! See, this is all about me learning about you people as well.
What was your first fandom (or first fandom-like relationship to a piece of media)?
Fact: I don't drink coffee.
