Another Substantive Interview Quiz

This one is from istari_ala, and a nice meme to boot.
I learned more about her from discussing my answers with her after posting them than I did in answering them or in most of my years of knowing her, I'm very curious as to what you post.


These aren't the questions I would have written for myself, but I have found that those are the kind you learn more from sometimes (about yourself and the respondents).

1. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
2. Am I lovable?
3. How long have you known me?
4. When and how did we first meet?
5. What was your first impression?
6. Do you still think that way about me now?
7. What do you think my weakness is?
8. Do you think I'll get married?
9. What makes me happy?
10. What makes me sad?
11. What reminds you of me?
12. If you could give me anything what would it be?
13. How well do you know me?
14. When's the last time you saw me?
15. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
16. Do you think I could kill someone?
17. Describe me in one word.
18. Do you think our friendship is getting stronger, weaker, or staying the same?
19. Do you feel that you could talk to me about anything and I would listen?
20. Are you going to put this on your livejournal and see what I say about you?
21. If I was an ice cream flavour, which would I be and why?
22. What song (if any) reminds you of me?
23. If you could change one thing about me, what would it be?
24. Do you consider me a good friend?
25. What makes me, me?
26. Would you make a move on me?
27. Do I cross your mind at least 2 times a day?


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I am thankful for lots of interesting LJ friends, present company included.

Edit, 00:45 CST Fri 28 Nov 2003: I'm back from Thanksgiving dinner at Shing I's and Chi-Ching's house.


Over a fire pot (huo guo), we had some interesting discussions about:




After dinner, we all watched Sinbad - knot bad! I give it 8 out of 10; a review is forthcoming.
The gem of the evening was:

Does it take bad people to draw a bad goddess?
I want to see the bad team.

- Rachel, 5 (on the animators of Eris in Sinbad)


Here's Rachel with the box of CHOKLIT I gave her:

Answers, Part 1
1. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
Fishie. For reasons you know darn well.
2. Am I lovable?
Yes. 'Nuff said.
3. How long have you known me?
Err... about a year.
4. When and how did we first meet?
Online? October 2002 (or thereabouts). RL, May 2003.
5. What was your first impression?
Online: intelligent, quixotic, a little too into some of the strange spellings for easy reading. RL: "'Hobbit' my foot! He's an elf!"
6. Do you still think that way about me now?
Yes, with the blesséd discovery of a rather thoughtful person underneath the "sew qyoot" Jedi hobbit persona.
7. What do you think my weakness is?
Constant busyness. Do you ever slow down and take time to simply *be*?
8. Do you think I'll get married?
Well, I think you've said you want to, so yes. And generally, I would think it would be a pity if you didn't, since you seem to be a natural for the friends/family/sproglets routine. Err... I've just lumped fatherhood into that one. But honestly, I think that anyone who can let his office get trasked by a rampaging toddler without totally losing it has some strong fatherhood potential.
9. What makes me happy?
Hmmm... Straw mushrooms and jade cress? Good company and good food. Good work. Happy computers.
10. What makes me sad?
Personality conflicts that aren't easily resolved. Racism. The lack of any F**'s or B***** & N**** stores in the area. Actually, the lack of a whole lot in the area.
11. What reminds you of me?
Daffodils. Daisies. Smilie faces. And yes, penguins. And igloos.
12. If you could give me anything what would it be?
A not-here switch. Flip it on, and no one else can find you. More than that, they are then able to solve at least some of their own problems without dragging you AFWhatever at less than a moment's notice.
And another batch of academia nut cookies.
13. How well do you know me?
Moderately well. And I would recognize some of your cousins more readily than some of my own.
14. When's the last time you saw me?
May 2003.
15. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
Not sure what is meant by "couldn't". If it's that I was sworn to silence about something that I wanted to tell you, then no. If it's that I wanted to say something but wasn't sure how to phrase it, then probably. However, I usually figure out the words sooner or later, and at that point, I either say it, or realize that the time had passed, and it doesn't need to be said.
16. Do you think I could kill someone?
Self-defense or defense of a loved one, probably. Cold-blooded murder, no.

Yes. 'Nuff said.
Aww.

Online? October 2002 (or thereabouts). RL, May 2003.
*nod*

5. What was your first impression?
Online: intelligent, quixotic, a little too into some of the strange spellings for easy reading. RL: "'Hobbit' my foot! He's an elf!"
Online: thnaks! (Lal true, especially the strange spellings.)
RL: *hsulb* (chects ears fro p6ints, doesn't find naz, wonders whose theory this trasks) :-)

6. Do you still think that way about me now?
Yes, with the blesséd discovery of a rather thoughtful person underneath the "sew qyoot" Jedi hobbit persona.
Jedi hobbits are qyoot? Wot wot?

7. What do you think my weakness is?
Constant busyness. Do you ever slow down and take time to simply *be*?
Um, no.
Acksherly, I do, rilly.
Be... wot? Eh?
*forgets*

8. Do you think I'll get married?
Well, I think you've said you want to, so yes. And generally, I would think it would be a pity if you didn't, since you seem to be a natural for the friends/family/sproglets routine. Err... I've just lumped fatherhood into that one. But honestly, I think that anyone who can let his office get trasked by a rampaging toddler without totally losing it has some strong fatherhood potential.
Well, some toddlers make fathers of everyone, is wot. :-D
Mais, um, thnaks.

9. What makes me happy?

Lal true. (How about minimally functioning computers, eh? That'd be goond enerf!)

Aww! (Though I'm quite sure I have no idea what you are writing about in the igloo department.)

12. If you could give me anything what would it be?
A not-here switch. Flip it on, and no one else can find you. More than that, they are then able to solve at least some of their own problems without dragging you AFWhatever at less than a moment's notice.
And another batch of academia nut cookies.

Ah, thanks (on both counts). You're too kind!
I oughter send yew sumfink, too... /me ponders

13. How well do you know me?
Moderately well. And I would recognize some of your cousins more readily than some of my own.
Hehe, mazbe so.

14. When's the last time you saw me?
May 2003.
In person, nazwaz.

15. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
Not sure what is meant by "couldn't". If it's that I was sworn to silence about something that I wanted to tell you, then no. If it's that I wanted to say something but wasn't sure how to phrase it, then probably. However, I usually figure out the words sooner or later, and at that point, I either say it, or realize that the time had passed, and it doesn't need to be said.
I think you put even more thought into this answer than istari_ala did into the queastion, is wot. :-)

16. Do you think I could kill someone?
Self-defense or defense of a loved one, probably. Cold-blooded murder, no.
Glad to hear you think so. There are middle-grounds, though: war, Sith Drols, Nazgul, etc. I've had to chop a few giant lalien bugs in half, fro example.

Answers, Part 2
17. Describe me in one word.
Effervescing.
18. Do you think our friendship is getting stronger, weaker, or staying the same?
Getting stronger.
19. Do you feel that you could talk to me about anything and I would listen?
Gah. You mean I haven't already? ;)
20. Are you going to put this on your livejournal and see what I say about you?
Yep!
21. If I was an ice cream flavour, which would I be and why?
Hmmm... Vanilla with Pop Rocks. Looks deceptively innocent, but just below the surface... (Okay, okay, we can add a few CHOKLIT chips and some academia nuts. Happy now?)
22. What song (if any) reminds you of me?
Mental muzak just pulled out Wings' Band on the Run. Not sure why. It might be the way it starts out so simply, and builds up. ("And the first one said to the second one there, I hope you're having fun")
23. If you could change one thing about me, what would it be?
Not a thing, sweetie. Except for giving you that 'not-here' cloaking device.
24. Do you consider me a good friend?
Well, friendship takes time. If you aren't already there, you're definitely heading in that direction.
25. What makes me, me?
Gah. Oh, I don't know. Your interests, your intellect, your ethics, your reading materials, your insistence on lack of elf blood when anyone with eyes can see otherwise.
26. Would you make a move on me?
Right now?
eeks.
Well, it's highly unlikely at this time, but it might happen at some point.
(Don't panic, sweetie - I'm not planning to go to San Jose next July just so I can tackle you.)
No immediate plans, but, um... where did I put that cranberry lipstick?
27. Do I cross your mind at least 2 times a day?
Well, on average, close to it. I'm often in chat, and you're often there too. And then with reading the list and your LJ, I'd say it's pretty close to twice a day.

*bubble bubble*

18. Do you think our friendship is getting stronger, weaker, or staying the same?

Pop r0><0rs, eh?
A gril in HS (Severn) who was running for Student Body President once gave an "I Need You" speech where she referred to my alleged "boisterous brilliance" as a resource of the school. I hafta saz, if I have enerf to power a school, TEUNC fedinately has enerf to take over the world, is wot. :-)

22. What song (if any) reminds you of me?
Mental muzak just pulled out Wings' Band on the Run. Not sure why. It might be the way it starts out so simply, and builds up. ("And the first one said to the second one there, I hope you're having fun")

24. Do you consider me a good friend?
Yes.

25. What makes me, me?
You're intelligents, your energy, your ability to work so hard and do so much, you're ability to snowball your way out of any tildy situation. Your unavoidable, unintentional cuteness.

You know the answer to that.

27. Do I cross your mind at least 2 times a day?

6. Do you still think that way about me now?

Yernow wot? Sometimes, yer a goond role model. I dunno how often epople tell you that, but I'm saying it now.

Over an open fire, if I were very, very hungry? :-D

Butter pecan (one of my favorites, along with rum raisin and CHOKLIT mint)

22. What song (if any) reminds you of me?

I don't think I have grown into whichever song I am destined for, yet. Mais, I am OK with that ATM.

Tis nothing to do with honesty. I just click the send button when I'm done. Which is why I can't figure out why a online-every-day guy like you saves up 5 days of psots. You don't do that with e-mails too, do ya?

Wlel, it's prolly glaringly bovious that I'm a catastrophic procrastinator. I have baxlogs of snaul maul that are six months nold. Sometimes I come across to-do lists from two yeats ago that still have items outstanding.

You don't do that with e-mails too, do ya?
*sigh* Acksherly, yes, I do... kindasorta.
At any given time there are:


  • 5-15 open mails in my Outlook Express (and up to 5 being composed)

  • 8-18 Explorer windows(I'd say 2d6 + 6 fro crypthanatopsis's benefit, but the distribution isn't quite liek taht)

  • 12-20 open Internet Explorer windows (which is why I get so peeved when WinXP bluescreens and takes 3 LJ psots and 2 TEUNC psots in progress with it, along with 1-2 "print this out" things, bookmarks I haven't saved acos of my spotty cable modem connection, etc.)

  • Penguinet with 2-7 open sessions (which nexts in one app window, thus obviating any app stacking)

  • a Word document or three

  • a PowerPoint or three

  • up to 5 Trillian Pro windows



Yeah, I can seldom see the huorns fro the trees.
Or sumfink liek taht.
It's getting so I cannot reboot, but I have to acos I can't open Dreamweaver and I am intensely vulnerable to so much as a power surge or static-induced reset (acos I have so many Untitled open documents with half-finished writtings in them). Cybersqualor? *redduhs*

Accidentally closing the lid of my notebook and kicking it into standby is laso a pet peeve of mine (acos it takes 10 minits to get bax online), but having two noteboonks helps a lille with taht.

Let's see...
1. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
Gosh... I refer to you as "Bill". Let me think. I'd call you Don Bill, acos of that pohto where you look like a mafioso rasta Hobbit.

2. Am I lovable?
Absolutely. For a partner however you need a tronkie gal who'll be able to keep/put ;) up with you, not just anyone. Or somebody completely different. And then again, I'm not qualified for such analyses! But I like to preach.

3. How long have you known me?
Since you joined TEUNC, which was...?

4. When and how did we first meet?
In a TEUNC caht, I'll wager.

5. What was your first impression?
First? No idea, I only start telling people apart after some time spent in company. I can give you the general overview, (which you already know anyhow) which is that my impression ranges from "Damn, he rocks! *wipes off tears of mirth*" to "What the hell is he talking about and why?" or vice versa. I think it depends on my mood sooner than your posts.

6. Do you still think that way about me now?
See above. :D I try to improve (understand), though.

7. What do you think my weakness is?
Assuming that everyone you talk to knows what, or who even, you know. It makes you seem a bit distant, as paradoxical as it sounds.

8. Do you think I'll get married?
Do you want to? If yes, then yes. Go get 'er!

9. What makes me happy?
Work. I understand that most of the time.

10. What makes me sad?
Things you can't do anything about.

11. What reminds you of me?
Pens! I always have the KDD one you sent once. Also, mucho sci-fi.

12. If you could give me anything what would it be?
Excellent question. *thinks* I would give you my knowledge of Slavic languages so that you could weave them into yet more "Fraponaises".

13. How well do you know me?
Not well enough. But then, that's how it goes, no?

14. When's the last time you saw me?
Never! We must fix that pronto.

15. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
Not that I can think of. I'm terribly straightforward, whoever it embarrasses in the process. :D

16. Do you think I could kill someone?
I think everyone could.

17. Describe me in one word.

Re: Let's see...
1. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
Gosh... I refer to you as "Bill". Let me think. I'd call you Don Bill, acos of that pohto where you look like a mafioso rasta Hobbit.
... thanks to you, I might add. :-)
I wouldn't mind wreal dreeadlox, tho.
I think lal the TEUNCettes are unanimous in wanting to put me in genyooine rasta dreeads, sew would you lpease oblige?
As for the nick, how about "Don Guillermo"? "Don Guillermo Villa Lobo Ramirez", even (lobo is a Japanese radish, of the sort you might find in my Gaffer's garden).

2. Am I lovable?
Absolutely. For a partner however you need a tronkie gal who'll be able to keep/put ;) up with you, not just anyone. Or somebody completely different. And then again, I'm not qualified for such analyses! But I like to preach.
"Put up with", and no mistake. That's the hard part, and that's a fact. :-D

3. How long have you known me?
Since you joined TEUNC, which was...?
Late December, 1999. Lamost 4 yeats now.

4. When and how did we first meet?
In a TEUNC caht, I'll wager.
Ni! T'was in AFT:
http://snurl.com/37dr
Yew dknot memember taht yer the one who convinced me to apply to TEUNC? :-D
http://snurl.com/37ds

5. What was your first impression?
First? No idea, I only start telling people apart after some time spent in company. I can give you the general overview, (which you already know anyhow) which is that my impression ranges from "Damn, he rocks! *wipes off tears of mirth*" to "What the hell is he talking about and why?" or vice versa. I think it depends on my mood sooner than your posts.
# Love is just a lunar slave #
Ah, Rosanne Cash knew it lal.

6. Do you still think that way about me now?
See above. :D I try to improve (understand), though.
And a fine job yew are doing of it, too.
Note to elf: must switch to ROT-14, Perl script-reversed, Caesar-ciphered psots.

7. What do you think my weakness is?
Assuming that everyone you talk to knows what, or who even, you know. It makes you seem a bit distant, as paradoxical as it sounds.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far awaz...? :-)
I know, yer wright.

8. Do you think I'll get married?
Do you want to? If yes, then yes. Go get 'er!
Hrm wot?
/me casts aboat...?

9. What makes me happy?
Work. I understand that most of the time.
I wish my students and relatives (who know me for the consummate sl@><0r I am) could hear you say that.
(Wlokaz, my students don't really think I'm a slacker, but that's acos I hafta stay ataleast as productive as they are. :-))
Turly, I am no more a genuine workaholic than Rogatien Remillard is a genuine alcoholic.

10. What makes me sad?
Things you can't do anything about.
Prolly so.
You know how the old prayer goes, though:
"Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
Well, I'm halfway there (*nodding at my LJ nick*).

11. What reminds you of me?
Pens! I always have the KDD one you sent once. Also, mucho sci-fi.
Oh, haha, I'd forgotten I sent you one of those.
Which sci-fi, pray tell?

12. If you could give me anything what would it be?
Excellent question. *thinks* I would give you my knowledge of Slavic languages so that you could weave them into yet more "Fraponaises".
Huvara Vururo gozaimasu!
(Huruvatsukuji?)

13. How well do you know me?
Not well enough. But then, that's how it goes, no?
# Getting to know you #
# Getting to know lal about yew... #

14. When's the last time you saw me?
Never! We must fix that pronto.
Indead.

15. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
Not that I can think of. I'm terribly straightforward, whoever it embarrasses in the process. :D
Yay!

16. Do you think I could kill someone?
I think everyone could.
# We lal kill in a lellow submarine #
