Stolen from everyone, but mostly joshwasta

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 office supplies and tentacle oni hentai."

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(s).

I do not particularly like tentacle oni hentai.

But I am very good at eating with chopsticks. I can eat non-sticky rice with chopsticks. I learned to use chopsticks when I was a kid, and I look down on those who can't use them at all.

We were in a mediocre Chinese restaurant recently. I know the place is owned by a Chinese (or at least Asian) family, but they employ a skinny white girl with broken front teeth as a waitress. We asked her for chopsticks when we noticed none were on the table. When she brought them to us, she looked at us askance and asked if we could use them. When we assured her that we possessed that skill, she shrugged like she wasn't so sure it was safe to give them to us, but she did anyway. She admitted she had no idea how to use them, but had been working for the restaurant for over a year.

I don't think we will be going back to that restaurant, since there are better Chinese places around. Places where both the employees and the customers use chopsticks.

LOL!! she shrugged like she wasn't so sure it was safe to give them to us...

That's so funny! Thanks! I also know how to use chopsticks very well. I do like the calamari also, and no, not the tentacle porn type of calamari. ;D

*makes mental note not to eat Asian food with Jaka*

I love to swim. Swim, swim, swim. It's cool and wet and fun and glorious. On a hot summer day there's nothing I like better than going to the pool. (I prefer to not find bugs inside my bathing suit, so I stay away from lakes.)

My kids seem to have inherited the swimming gene from me, and that makes me very happy.

I love to swim, too, but ironically, hate getting wet. I think it's the whole cat-in-a-past-life thing. It just takes my hair so long to dry. I usually shower right before bed, wring it out, towel it of, and just put a towel on my pillow. That way I don't have to mess with it being wet.

My chopstick-fu is rather good after having lived in California for over a year and spent most of it eating tons of Oriental food. I especially enjoy Vietnamese.

I love to read and enjoy all types of hentai.

If you go to a sushi restaurant, they're called hashi in Japanese. I'm not really familiar with Vietnamese food, but we have a place in Coralville called Bangkok to Saigon, and it's Thai/Vietnamese. I just remember the first and last time I tried Thai. It was, "What to you have that isn't spicy?" "Water." And Thai iced tea? *gag* So I'm wary. :[

Vietnamese generally speaking isn't as spicy as Thai, although there are exceptions.

I'm a bisexual woman married to a heterosexual man with lesbian leanings (me, not him). And, Chicago study be damned, true bisexuality does exist!!

Oh, and I'm a practicing Witch.

I figure I'm halfway across the river Styx already, might as well enjoy it....

You like girls?! *gasp* I'm shocked!!

...

*ROFL* You're so cute! :* Yeah, why should one forsake half the world just because they've got different parts?

It doesn’t matter where you are
Collecting jewels that catch your eye
Don’t let a soulmate pass you by

My name is Jason and call me old-fashioned if you must, but I am firm in my opinion that demonic rape cartoons are barely arousing at all. Unless it's girl-on-shedemon. That's super-hot. But even then only if it's strictly consensual.

Now that my funny thing is over I s'pose I still have to say something about me. Akward. Bound to be anticlimactic.

I really love Romantic-era piano music, especially Liszt and Chopin.

And I don't really have any strong feelings about office supplies in general, but I do love a good staple remover.

I know "Chopsticks." Does that work for you?

Oh, I know about the staple pullers... The kids purging the records have these ones that push down on the paper while pulling up on the staple with like a 5:1 lever. I want one.

"Chopsticks" works for me just fine. It's nothing to knock. One of my favorite songs ever, Manfred Mann's version of "Blinded by the Light" breaks into "Chopsticks" in the middle of a big instrumental. It's awesome.

Some would call me "Shaun," but that would misrepresent the truly cataclysmic intensity I exude in overwhelming waves to all within my immediate vicinity. I skillfully wield chainsaws with frighteningly precise dexterity and graceful poise. I commonly utilize this terrifying destructive capacity to intimidate small children and boxes of adorable puppies. Few deities successfully refrain from trembling in abject horror when exposed to my woefully piercing resplendent eminence.

I also like pie.

I'm Shub-Niggurath. Nice to meet you. I like pie, too. French Silk Chocolate Pie. With fresh French people. :9

I'm so archconservative you'd be floored at how much you agree with me.

That just means you are a real conservative, not one of the NeoCons that seem to dominate the Party these days.

Yeah, too bad about the Rebublicans. I was almost seduced to their party during the Reagan Years. Whew.

My name is Brian, but in most printed documents my name appears as Brain. In Boy Scouts (I was a boy scout), one of our assistant scoutmasters could not spell my name. It was always Brain. He just couldn't get it right and he didn't seem to know the difference :(
He was also the guy in charge of all advancement and registering for trips. Needless to say almost all of my badge certificates were for Brain and it became a running joke in our troop. I was also registered at scout camp as Brain and got some funny looks from the councilors :)

I am 1/16th clown! My great great uncle (my great grandmother's brother) was a shriner clown. I think this is where I inherited my taste for knee-high striped socks and my mad balloon-twisting skills.

Oh, I need to get you a little Pinky beany. Then you can say, "Him? Oh, that's my sidekick."
