I've started so I'll finish

enigmaticblues's done this for me, so now it's my turn to do this for you, if you like:

Respond in the comments and

1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll challenge you to try something.
3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you.
4. I'll tell you something I like about you.
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on yours if you haven't already. (No need if you don't want to, actually.)

I don't usually do these, but here I am....

Randomosity: you make the best spicy mushrooms!
Challenge: to dress for a day in anything but black and\or purple!
Colour: that's easy: purple. A deep, dark, luxurious purple even.
Memory: you draping yourself sensuously around the speakers in The Cavern Club, while Eric looked on, mystified.
The thing I love about you: your spontaneity (you're always full of ideas and never shy about expressing them or making them a reality), your warmth and openness (you have that happy knack of making people instantly feel at ease) and your vast local knowledge of Coventry and the W. Midlands.
Animal: The Soup Dragon!
Question: you seem so perfectly at home in coventry, but...what does Peru really mean to you? Is there some way in which your association with it has left its mark on you?

Dammit now I want spicy mushrooms :P

That is a challenge and a half, I don't have enough clotheswise to do that! Though I have 'dressed up' in other colours previously! Oh and I do have red tshirts but no different coloured bottoms!

Hahahaha what a great memory, that was a night and a half, he must have thought I was off my trolley!

You think I make people feel at ease? That's such a wonderful thing to say about someone, thank you!

Soup dragon...well it just had to be :D

hmmm interesting question. I really don't know, but I will think about it carefully :)

Yes, you do make people feel entirely at ease within 5 seconds of meeting them -- I'm living proof of that myself! And I've seen you work that Irish charm of yours on others, too (Neil, e.g. - have you heard of him lately?) and they not able to resist. People respond to you because they sense your interest in them is genuine.

Eric, I think, has filed you away in that mental folder of his labelled 'barmy, but mostly harmless' -- but I'm sure he'd be happy to revise that opinion upon getting better acquainted with you (and then he'll realise you'll have to go into the folder marked 'TOTALLY INSANE!!!')

I'm glad, I would hate people to feel uneasy around me :D And you're right I do have genuine interest. I love people, love meeting new people, and love getting to know people better, that's why I ask so many questions!

Neil text me last night actually :D

heeheehee he can talk, he's a nutter;)

Turn about's fair play, I suppose...

Randomosity: you know how you said that you liked my posts after travelling, because they offered you a window on another world? It's the same for me with regards to your posts about school and your job in the CA office. I'm so happy to know that while it's hard work, you're enjoying it, too.
Challenge: it's not really a challenge, more of a wish for you: I hope that one day, you'll be able to travel to all of those places you're curious about, and discover the joy of them.
Colour: how could it be anything but blue? An intense blue, like cobalt, but fluctuating and fading into a powder blue at the edges.
Memory: unfortunately, I've never yet had the pleasure of meeting you, and therefore my most immediate memory of you is axctually of your posts that dealt with your bouts of depression. Your candour in expressing yourself struck a chord, because there was so much I recognised from my own experience, but never managed to disclose to my nearest and dearest because I couldn't find the right words.
Love: I admire your honesty, your insight, and your reasoned responses. You always seem to give good advice, always know how to approach a problem from a different angle, shed a new light on things. You challenge me to think about things more, and I appreciate that.
Animal: we've already established that we're crap at thinking up animal doubles for each other. However, if storybook animals are allowed, then I'd imagine you to be uite a bit like the dragon in The Neverending Story.
Question: most girls that I know start off with the small tattoo -- what made you choose such a big, bold design...and why does your bird look like it's crying?
Jun. 7th, 2006 10:39 pm (UTC)
I think that transparency is the only way to live, at least it is for me. That way everyone knows what they're getting into.

Animal: Oh, how did you know? I loved the dragon in The Neverending Story. Loved him.

Tattoo: Heh. Technically, my first tattoo is a small one. I got a Celtic cross on my hip about a year before I got the big one. As for why it's so big, I didn't mean for it to be. But I wanted a phoenix with a celtic design in the wings, and that's what the artist came up with. I went for it without giving myself a chance to think about it too much, otherwise I probably would have backed out. For me, the phoenix represents both who I am, and what I want to do with my life. Phoenix tears, according to the myth, have healing properties. I believe strongly in the healing power of tears, in mourning with others, and in allowing your own grief to show.
