why yeah, I want to waste time today...  
My middle name is Elizabeth!* What else do you want to know about me that you don't already know? Ask me and I'll answer in comments, unless it's too personal and then I'll flee you make up an answer.

(Is there anything left that I *haven't* told the viewing public yet?)

* ETA: Added exclamation point to convey sheer excitement of this fact!

Hmmm. Do you have siblings?
Anna S.: daniel-stunningeliade on October 18th, 2005 07:02 pm (UTC)
I have a brother, four years younger, who still lives on the East Coast as far as I know. We haven't talked since I moved to Seattle in 1998. I'm estranged from my family by choice, for various emotionally complicated reasons--my own issues, reall7y. My brother grew up to be a good guy, though.

My middle name is Ann!

What's your favorite kind of cookie and why?

Er, I'm bored, too.
Anna S.: nebulaeliade on October 18th, 2005 07:05 pm (UTC)
Chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies! I have this recipe I love. I'm trying to find it right now--I thought it was in my docs but don't see it. If I can find it, I'll post it. :)

What colour are your fingernails?
Anna S.: alien reseliade on October 18th, 2005 07:05 pm (UTC)
Last night they were a light pink, touched up just that night, and they looked great, but then I got the idea to paint dark red squiggles on them. This worked well on my left hand, but sadly my right hand came out...bad. So then I tried to paint over them, leaving some pink margins. This also went badly. So I took all the polish off for today. ;)

What job would you want? (any job, imagine I could wave my wand to make you physically/skill-ily ideal to the job if you aren't already)

Is your first name really Anna?

Where in the world would you most like to see?
Anna S.: foraminiferaeliade on October 18th, 2005 07:11 pm (UTC)
What job would you want?

I just read an author's observation that anything that's a job is something we'll shirk, and anything that's "fun" we'll work on instead. So the idea of a job I love is kind of oxymoron now that I think about it. ;) I've waffled on whether I love or hate my current job, but on the whole it suits my need and desire to sit at a desk and get paid for writing stuff.

Is your first name really Anna?

Yep.

Where in the world would you most like to see?

Possibly New Zealand, but at this point, anywhere other than here.

When are you going to write your next slash masterpiece? (Ok, that was evil, don't answer that. *g*)

Evil! EVIL! I'm vaguely approaching the area of the possibility of conceiving of writing something.

Do you think Rodney is dreamy?

David Hewlett is dreamy. Rodney is dreamy but also disturbingly flawed (sometimes charmingly, sometimes uncomfortably). I'm actually kind of scared to watch "Trinity."

Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year?

Nah. I tried last year and never got going. I don't want to task myself this year.

MELODY GLOUCESTER PEGASUS: Andre Peanutjolielaide on October 18th, 2005 07:31 pm (UTC)
Hi! My middle name is Kathryn!

When you're writing, do you have everything planned out from the beginning, or does the story unfold as you're writing it? Do you think about the story and the characters visually (like watching TV) or verbally (like you're reading a book)? Or both, or neither?
Anna S.: john-intenseeliade on October 18th, 2005 08:15 pm (UTC)

I planned the noir stories, that's about it--outlines, notes, etc. Most of the time I just wing it.

Do you think about the story and the characters visually (like watching TV) or verbally (like you're reading a book)? Or both, or neither?

Visually. I may have storylines that jumpstart an actual written story. I have a lot of storylines going on in my head at any given time that I never write.

Ah, but I already knew your middle name from this morning. /smug

Worst injury you've ever had.

And, and, and...do you think you'll ever complete a novel? Dead serious here. Please spill your heart out, as I need to know. xoxox

You did! You are the poshiest.

Worst injury you've ever had.

I caught my toe in a bicycle chain and had to have a few stitches. Had a small piece of glass stuck just under my skin for a few years until I mentioned it and had it removed. Not serious though. I'm prone to stomach ailments--had to go into uni clinic once with IV, and to the emergency room another time. I've been very lucky on the whole though.

And, and, and...do you think you'll ever complete a novel? Dead serious here. Please spill your heart out, as I need to know. xoxox

I wish. Every time I start one I get blocked. :P

My middle name is Madeleine. After the popular cake.

What's your earliest memory?
Anna S.eliade on October 18th, 2005 08:13 pm (UTC)
Madeleines are awesome. Even Starbucks ones. :)

What's your earliest memory?

A spider descending from the ceiling over my crib. Which explains a lot, really.
Dittostretfordditto on October 18th, 2005 07:52 pm (UTC)
My middle name is Elizabeth too 'cos I was born in Coronation year (how naff). ;) Are you addicted to anything else besides? I have an addictive nature, but it's centred on food. Fags, booze and drugs leave me cold. :D
Anna S.: vaughn-blueeliade on October 18th, 2005 08:12 pm (UTC)
Are you addicted to anything else besides?

Addictions--a lot of what they call soft addictions. Food, the Internet, shopping. Hmm, what else. I've been fortunate in that I've never taken up smoking or hard drugs, because I'd probably have trouble right now with those if I had.
Anaxila / Babblesanaxila on October 18th, 2005 08:33 pm (UTC)
Your middle name is Elizabeth!? Really? I had no idea. That's so... I dunno. It's like that time when you found out after all these years that my dad's a taxidermist. What the hell else don't I know about you at this point?

Slightly morbid - what would you like written on your tombstone? And would you wawnt people to laugh or cry at your funeral?

My first name is Elizabeth. It means special oath to G-d in Hebrew. I think it's fitting cos I swear all the time. :-)

I want them to eat chocolate and laugh and remember me fondly, even though I threw myself off a bridge.

I love seaweed! Not to eat, but I have fond memories of seaweed from my youth--climbing on the kelpy rocks in my family's summer place in Maine. :)

I'm coming to work dressed as a slacker. Every pair of work-appropriate pants I own is blue jeans, by the way. I have no skirts, no dress trousers, no colored jeans, no shorts. Everything else is work-out clothes. ;)

Rock, paper or scissors? *g*

It's situational. If someone is sitting next to me on the bus and talking about the current political climate, it's rock, so that I can hit them on the head with it. If it's a project manager asking me to create content for a launch that occurred yesterday, it's scissors, so that I can stab them to death. The paper is to wrap my sandwich in, when I have one....

Heh. No. I got stuck midway through that one where Angel was rogering Dru on a ruffled bed or something like that, while Spike stared gobsmacked at them with tipped head and wounded spaniel eyes and a bad rug.
