Unfortunately, I don't have enough icons to support the current hot meme, which is kind of a shame, because a) it's really cute and fun and b) I have an entire folder of stolen... er... anyway, I have a lot of really nifty icons squirreled away (including a couple that actually involve squirrels) and by the time I get around to upgrading my account the meme will have drifted off.

Thus I gacked this alternate meme from [info]kalquessa. It's not current or hot, but I figure it might be good practice for this whole 'personalised' thing, of which I've been told this journal specifically needs more. I've been concentrating so hard on removing the rambling I really haven't had time to relate the stories of meaningfulness; then again, it was hard enough coming up with sixteen short notes of interest. So this meme works out all the way around, really:

1. The reason Shoedad doesn't show up much (if at all) in these pages is because a) he died just about two years ago, and b) he had voluntarily absented himself from his family - wife, three daughters, three grandchildren, elderly parents - for about a decade before that. I mourn him now not so much as a beloved father but for the potential for same that was lost. *considers* Yeah, someday I may need to write an entire post about this.

2. There is dust all over my keyboard. I hate that. Actually, I hate dust in any form, because it is simoultaneously so revealing of what a sloppy housekeeper I am, and so easy to ignore. "It's just dust," I say to myself. "Am I really going to let a few airborne particles get in the way of genius? Or, for that matter, the new Nero Wolfe DVD?" And the next thing you know, I am the poster child for Save Us From This House. Frustrating.

3. I am the only person I know to have been kicked out of two Canadian Idol fandoms running (for Tyler Hamilton and Kalan Porter, if anybody cares). Basically, for hanging around long after it became clear I didn't fit in, and being unbearably superior about it. Still...the Dr. Phil argument was cruel and unusual provocation. And I don't think the vicious PMs were at all necessary, either.

4. I do kind of worry about this whole Computer Simulation Theory idea from time-to-time, mostly because dammit I'm sure I saw that Zorro episode before the guide says it was made, and it bugs. Then I go tell my trusted friends, and they laugh and heap scorn, and I feel much better. But I still don't like watching the Matrix movies after dark.

Tour continues under the cut... )
