  1. 1. you’re a sweetheart.
    2. oh, andrew. it’s never good to be a hipster (puke). but i appreciate it.
    3. at javahut, it’s never hard.
    4. and with you, it’s even easier.
    5. whatever strikes me – i take a lot from people who haven’t had a voice, be them actual or biblical or whatever. editing used to be touch and go – it’s a lot more concrete now but i’m also writing a lot more page poetry (with my spoken word stuff, i can wing it). i decide to memorize what i’m going to compete with or what i really love.
    6. doris day!
    7. xo.

  2. The drama part. No drama=love in my real life, so I get all I want, creativity, costuming, the part of me who always wanted to be an actor. Its far more intense then other kinds of gaming, because its all-immersive.

  3. I remember the temple well 🙂

    Get together with you? Any time, brother. Just holler.

    Learned about Spirit from my work at AV? I don’t know that I’ve learned anything -about- Spirit from that work. I’ve learned a bit about people, a bit about business, but so far, no Great Revelations. And this is perfectly fine. This venture is one of service, not study…

    Carved pattern / shaved head? There’s this one:

    but it was never an icon… Besides that, there have been no other carvings… so you may be hallucinating on that one.

  4. 1. Tell you why I friended you.

    I didn’t want to lose track of you or where you were in the world, and this is an easy way to know what you’re doing and what you’re about. I rejoice in your happinesses, and mourn your sadnesses, and I like being able to think about you form your own words and doings.

    2. Associate you with something – fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.

    I knew you first as a poet, but I tend to think of you first and foremost as a gamer, even though a) I’ve never gamed with you, really, and b) Lia is more of a gamer than you were when I first met you. That said, you’re an awesome poet, too, and I miss hearing your words.

    3. Tell you something I like about you.

    I like that you’re bright and perky, but that you’re not particularly afraid of your dark side. You know how to access it, use it, empower it when you need to, and let go of it when it doesn’t serve you. Not many can do that.

    4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

    Watching you perform Jabberwocky and having the JavaHut utterly silent because hey, it was a poem the DramatiKids knew and cared about.

    5. Ask something I’ve always wanted to know about you.

    What part or parts of you gets fed by being a LARPer? How is it different for you than other kinds of gaming?

    6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.

    I like the one of you with your baby daughter, in black and white.

    7. In return, you could post this in your LJ.

    Do as you will.

  5. 1. Tell you why I friended you.

    You are/were a poet, your writing impressed me, and your presence on stage was startling. Plus, you wanted to be a teacher. Three out of three is pretty good.

    2. Associate you with something – fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc. (finally found the missing close-italics!)

    Hmm. I think of you as being a hipster, or at least one of the cool kids in a way that I never was. Culturally literate, aware of the classics, able to speak about the overtones of Macbeth in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but not fully engaged with that, either.

    3. Tell you something I like about you.

    You were complimentary to a group of poets at JavaHut once. After a feature, there were a bunch of poets around you buying chapbooks; and the ones who had read, you had nice things to say. Not sappy things, but you made it seem like you’d been paying attention and noticing what people said. You listened.

    4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

    You even had something nice to say about me, which was pretty cool after the kick-as* feature you’d just done.

    5. Ask something I’ve always wanted to know about you.

    How do you go about finding subject matter for your poetry? How do you go about refining the initial decision into words on a page, and how do you decide what to commit to memory?

    6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.

    I like your 1950s housewife with the impossibly perfect smile.

    Do as you will.

  6. 1. Tell you why I friended you.

    In addition to being friends, we’re kindred spirits. We’re insiders and outsiders in fire circle/drumming cultures, attracted to rules and order in a community that thrives on a certain degree of chaos; yet respected nonetheless because of our interest in forms and meaning and the ability to expound upon same.

    2. Associate you with something – fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.

    Well, we’re both students of forrestry, and that counts for something. We’re also turtles. And I think of the color green when I think of you, though why that should be, I don’t know.

    3. Tell you something I like about you.

    I like that you’re open to trying new things. You were willing to attempt to become a poet, and that worked out well. You have done this livejournal thing reasonably well, and you’ve engaged with the DIY spirit of making your house a better and more beautiful home, and you’ve become a recording engineer. You seem to get positive outcomes from a great many of the things you try.

    4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

    the first thing I always think of is “This is the temple of the Buddha of the 33 hands,” for better or worse. I loved that mini-jam.

    5. Ask something I’ve always wanted to know about you.

    Can we get together soon-ish after school ends? Wait, that’s about us. Ummm… What do you feel you’ve learned about Spirit from being the master/manager/principal of Authentic Voices Studio?

    6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.

    For a while you used one of your carved/pattern-shaved head, but I haven’t seen it in some time.

    7. In return, you could post this in your LJ.

    Do as you will.

  7. Fair is as fair does…

    1. Tell you why I friended you.

    Well, you’re my friend, silly.
    2. Associate you with something – fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.

    I think of you as a priestess of fire, which is by no means an easy thing to be in the 21st century, when the fires seem to be few and far between. It’s part of the reason I always bounce new chants off of you; if you latch on to them then it’s a kind of confirmation that I’m on the right track at the right time.

    3. Tell you something I like about you.

    I like your flightiness, and your ability to sail through trouble. These days it seems to find me, and you seem to float past it.

    4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

    Walking around Cambridge or Somerville (still not sure quite where we were) and talking after Thai food and went back to work. It seemed a perfect way to spend the day.

    5. Ask something I’ve always wanted to know about you.

    Does anything frustrate you or upset you about fire circle community or culture? What would you do to fix it, if you had the power?

    6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.

    This one here, the one of you holding up the moon. Seems apropos.

    7. In return, you could post this in your LJ.

    No, please don’t, since I stole it from you.
