Comment to this meme with the word 'words' and I will give you five words that make me think of you. Then post them in your LJ and say what they mean to you.
While I technically don't live in Toronto, I do live near enough to it to count it as my Canadian city of origin for purposes of talking to non-Canadians. ;) I also immensely enjoy the city, as it has, you know... stuff to do after 9 PM.2. Writer
I like to think of myself as one. And, I guess, technically I've been published so I am
a writer, although it's really more of an ongoing process thing which I don't have the... ongoingness. Of. (See how good the writerliness is? I'm making up words and ending sentences with prepositions and dropping sentence fragments everywhere!)3. Left
I'm assuming this is in a "leftist" sort of way. :) Which, yeah. I'm pretty far left by Western standards. I guess I just fundamentally don't understand the idea that a local community is a better/more efficient safety net than a government is. 4. Alex
I've been going by Alex for a long, long time (longer than Ali, as a matter of fact). The thing is, my mom used to call me Ali and my dad Alex. So most of my friends, etc. knew me as Ali, since I primarily lived with my mom. But I've always preferred
Alex (what with the androgyny factor and all). So in university I started using Alex primarily, since none of those people knew my mom :), and have tried to edge people towards that use, which has more or less worked.5. Satire
I'm not really sure what prompted this! I like it? It's fun? Pterry is my hero?
It's my art style of choice. By and large I don't actually watch much anime any more, save for a few things (Hetalia!), but... overall I've been on a real media withdrawl. Don't know why.2. Vampires
I'll be in my bunk.
(I like vampires. If they existed, I would be in a very very bad place. How bad would depend on whether they were sexy-type vampires, killy-type vampires, or Cullen-type vampires, in which case the bad place would be prison or dead.)3. Books
I am a fan! I don't read as much as I used to, or as much as I want to (sob, I'm something like 10 or 11 weeks behind on 50 Book Challenge this year?), but I do like them.4. Goals
I'm trucking along quite well on my 101/1001. :) I haven't made any updates on it recently, but that's more because I've been avoiding posting things on the internet rather than because I haven't been doing them. I'm about 41% complete with two and a half years to go.5. Elves
I'mma guess this is because of my avatar, which is version eleventybillion of Tathar Ithildin. In this one, he was a rocker in a Shadowrun-ish world (not that dark because I was 14, but supertech + magic returned into the world), who had a mentor in Stradivarius, who was a very old elf that had hidden that fact for centuries, disappearing periodically to keep from suspicion. There was some world-saving plot I'm sure, but I just remember that the band was 3/2 (Three Halfs, because they were all half-elves), and the drummer was a half-drow stoner. "We're all, like, half elves, but if you put us in an album, we're like Schrodinger's Cat, and it's 100% rock.
, who just gave them to me because he doesn't want to participate:1. Flute
I played for seven years. I've touched the one I own twice, maybe three times since then. I miss it sometimes, but I'm so out of practice that even forming notes is difficult. :(2. Exalted
I fucking love
Exalted and I wish I could find people who liked to play the same style of Exalted that I do. I think Exalted has a tendency to bring out the... power fetishism in everyone, but at the expense of what I love about gaming, which is the intensely personal aspects of the character. I want to explore the decisions that make or break a hero, what has to be done to save the world, whether you choose love or the world. You know, epic heartwrenching shit like that.
And fuck the mechas.3. Lusty
I am at that. ;) And kinky. And overall kind of sex-obsessed. What can I say? Sex is fun, can I have some more?4. Restaurant
I eat out more than is probably (definitely) healthy. If I stopped eating out, I could easily save $2-400 a month. And yet. And yet. 5. Nerdery
Things I cannot do without: RPGs, the internet, the Oxford comma, and geeking out, preferably with Simon. ;)
From trenog1. Creative
To me, this is more something I aspire to be rather than actually am.2. Influential
Ahahahahaha. Really? Wow, I don't even know what to say to that one...3. Excitable
My ire is easily aroused. :P As is my arousal. Honestly I think I'm pretty stagnant though...4. Memes
They substitute for content in my life!5. Glasses
I need to get new ones, I think the prescription on mine is not strong enough. Frownie. Also I like them on others, usually. :)
