The Third Day, The Fuss
SSar's Beast
Item One:

*looks at remains of project: glue and ribbon bits and scissors and paper*

Hey, pretty.

That went well.

Would anyone else like me to make them a (friendly and non-implicative, obviously) Valentine card-thing? If you're not in New Zealand, better ask quick; I can't guarantee it'll get there in time. Feel free to ask. If you read this journal, chances are high that I feel genuine affection for you. (And please don't apply post hoc ergo propter hoc logic to that last statement. That's just demeaning.)

Item Two:

By the third day, I'm thinking that this new eyesight prescription is off. Things are slightly blurry when they shouldn't be. I could get used to these glasses-frames, which I currently wish I hadn't chosen, but please don't let the lenses actually be wrong for me... I've arranged another appointment with the optometrist. Meanwhile... It's a good thing I'm not unhappy for other reasons right now, because the disappointment of these glasses is making me irritable. Not being able to see things as I should (or is it me being over-sensitive? It's so hard to tell!) has a soporific effect. And when I'm stumbling around all day, blinking and dropping things, I'm bad company. Just tell me not to be a self-pitying yidjit if you notice this.

Item Three:

01. Comment with your name and I will write something about you.
02. I will then tell what song(s) remind(s) me of you.
03. Next, I will tell you who you remind me of, celebrity/animated or otherwise.
04. Last, I will try to name a single word that best describes you.
05. Put this in your journal.

(Thanks, Polina!)

Joshua. Wih. Something.

First, Wih is, indeed, a name I still think of when reviewing memories of you, despite the fact that you seem to use it less often nowadays. And you're like a stone at the bottom of a stream. One dips one's hand in to find it and discovers you're deeper down than the eye would believe, at least a whole arm's depth.

Second, several. Anything by Blair Giles; some things by Muse; the song "Learn to Be Still" by the Eagles, and the song "There is a light that never goes out" that appears on a compilation album.

Third, you know I'm hopeless where it comes to celebrities and well-known people, so you can be Will from the children's fantasy series "The Dark is Rising" by Susan Cooper. I'm sorry if that doesn't seem like much.

Fourth, looking.

One - hello dear. I wouldn't be surprised if I saw you on a trapeze in five years. I might say, "Didn't you want to pursue drama?" but I wouldn't be surprised. I also frequently think of Hallowe'en when I think of you.

Two - There's a rock song called "Gloria" that was part of a school production a few years ago. They manage to make so much out of the spelling of it. And there's one about an actress, "She Loves The Way They Love Her," by the Zombies, that you might like.

Three - You can be Violet from the Unfortunate Events books.

Four - diya. *mysterious grin*

Polina! Of course!

1. When I first met you, I was completely taken in by your earnest Gothic image. So knowing you has been a lot of fun, because I keep learning more about you. I think I've got the general sense-in-my-mind-of-who-you-are right now, but I know my impressions will have to shift. You are always changing, like a heap of fiery fallen leaves dancing, being played with by the wind.

2. Patti Smith, "My Blakean Year" (lyrics: http://www.lyricscafe.com/s/smith_patti/084.htm )

3. Although you've recently stirred up thoughts about writers who killed themselves, it's writer activists that are running through my head right now. Hm. I think Nadine Gordimer.

4. Flamboyant. *grins*

1\ Of all the people I know, you are the one who knows the most about himself, and knows the most useful stuff. Or maybe it's just an impression you give - but you seem the best at knowing how you tick, what inspires you, what affects you, how you'll react to things, where you belong.

2\ Uh... I'd think it apt were I to choose something from one of the CDs I have entitled "stuff from Layne"... I know. Dido's "Thank You" song.

3\ You can be Rudyard Kipling because I liked his thoughts about life.

4\ [If you knew how long I just sat here thinking about this...] I go back to my diary to help me with this... Oh, okay. I'll cheat and say "lucid".

One: "Hey! You're - that guy!" Meaning, you invented the art of kimihi, and are of that small group of my friends who have Zali's divine sanction. Well granted, I think. May you never be tempted to use your Uzi. More things about you: well, all right, you're not a plank. Although you may continue to inspire Rashi in other ways. It's what you do. Open people's eyes to the joys of creating wacky inscrutable stuff. And more. Now with...

Two: Sigh.
"Some people call me the space cowboy..."
"He called me, a penguin in a palm tree..."
"It's gonna be the future soon..."
"In your head, in your head... zo-ombie, zo-ombie, zombie..."

Three: My Auckland friend Katie [Comrade James]. I think comparing you to a celebrity would seem non-complimentary, so have this dubious honour instead.

Four: Dapper. It comes next after "wacky" and "inscrutable".

I have the sanction of Zali? Why was I not informed before now?

My name is Alex. :-)

1: You're bouncy, yet people respect you at the same time. No one wants to see you feeling down. I like you.

2: Laurie Anderson, "Ramon"; you probably won't be able to find the lyrics, but it's about angels sounding like lawnmowers and people helping each other. Yes.

3: The cookie monster, because of your icon-thing. I am sorry. You still love me, don't you?

4: Sunshine. I hope you don't mind.

One. I really don't know you all that well, although I'm coming to know your smile a little better. You seem quite honest. The "Jeshizle" name also reminds me of "Bend It Like Beckham" in which someone asks Jess if her name is really Jess, and she said, no, it's Jasmita, or something like that, but everyone calls her Jess. I can see you going "No, my name isn't really Jess, it's Jeshyrianta," or something like that.

Two. Kris Delmhorst, "Hummingbird". http://www.cowboylyrics.com/lyrics/delmhorst-kris/hummingbird-11042.html

Three. I really don't know. Be Jewel.

Four. Firework.

*is quite happy*

That's a beautiful song; I'm very honored to be reminded of by it (erm, if that's the right wording...).

Item Three: My curious ego gets the better of me.
-Your curious and egocentric friend.

un~ if I could sum up anything useful I would like to say about you in a paragraph, then several poems and several letters would have to crumple to bits out of offended superfluity. I love the things you hang in your windows. I like your Narnian closet. I keep wanting to call your cat "Boysenberry" lately. Of everyone I know you are most likely to be woken up at 3am by a strange call. You are also among the most likely to already have been awake, picturing strange silvery shapes in the cracks in between bits of your paper mosaic, up on your ceiling.

deux~ Dylan, "One More Cup of Coffee For the Road"; Buffalo Springfield, "Expecting to Fly"; Bic Runga, "Get Some Sleep"; Steely Dan, "King of the World"; Greg Johnson, that song about 'my friend, Liberty', of course; The Mutton Birds, "Last Year's Shoes"; Rod Argent's "Rejoice"; Bob Welch's "Church"; I'd give more but I've packed away my CD collection in a suitcase with a crocheted coverlet on top of it.

trois~ *twenty minutes later of staring at the screen - this question is the worst* Elizabeth Bishop.

quatre~ [Please don't hate me, but] dazzling.

01. Comment with your name and I will write something about you. - Ash
02. I will then tell what song(s) remind(s) me of you.
03. Next, I will tell you who you remind me of, celebrity/animated or otherwise.
04. Last, I will try to name a single word that best describes you.

I'm not gonna chuck this in my journal because I can't be bothered, so I'll do one for you here :)

02. Horse With No Name. I remember, my brother had the guitar tab for that song and I was playing it on his guitar and thinking, "Yay, this's SSar's song!"

03. I did think Chi from Chobits, but she's way too innocent and unknowing of the world. SO, you're not like Chi. I'll just say Reese Witherspoon or Maggie Gyllenhall because they're trippy and interesting people.

04. Punctilious. Especially when it comes to writing :)

Why thank you, Ash. No "one"?

01. It's like you have all these different bandwidths of quietness and loudness. Right down in the core of you you're entirely silent and right above that you yell a bit, and there are lots of layers insulated from the rest of the world. Not just one private layer.

02. The Outlaws, "Be Your Own Superstar"; The Zombies, "Brief Candles".

03. You can be Anna Paquin?

04. Swing.

I couldn't resist.

1) Irrestistible, apparently. *grins* Your mind is always dreaming in a sort of knitting way, pulling things together. Your use of your mind shows proper respect for good tools; you don't trust your heart as much or as such.

2) Steve Miller Band, "Wintertime" - that's the first one that comes to mind.

3) Dorothy Parker.

4) Self-renewing.

1) And Zara is mysterious. It is very very hard to place your mental age, or how approachable you are. Your personality online is subtly different from my impressions of you in person, which sometimes throws me off a bit. Your friends are a whole 'nother interesting universe.

2) Song from 'Other Enz' compilation album, "Whispers" - the lyrics are rather elusive when you're sitting and listening to them, but I love the chorus melody

3) The first person who comes to mind is Marilyn Monroe, and keep in mind I know very little about her, so I'm hoping this intrigues rather than offends you...


meep what am i like online?

yay marilyn!!! she used to be something of an idol of mine, i still admire her as worrying as that is

heheheh tentative...that actually pretty accurate; im either blunt or a mess of nerves

I saw your post here, and then you deleted it. I'm sorry I took so long to reply. In any case, although baffled, I'm replying.

1) You are enlivening. You would be a good Re-Enchanter. Tahat isn't an anime, much as it sounds like one, it is my imaginary brigade of people who bend the world, just a bit, into a better existence by the way they think. In a way so independent of your efforts that it's almost separate from the way you live your life.

2) Neil Young, "I Am A Child" Michael Franks, "Antonio's Song"

3) The Childlike Emperess from the Neverending Story. Book, NOT movie.

4) Wise.
