9. Do we know each other outside of LJ? Nope

10. Whats your philosophy on life? It's not a right, it's a privilege.

11. Would you have my back in a fight? If you need me to.

12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? Probably not. I'm crap at the lying thing.

13. What is your favorite memory of us? Random comments on my LJ are always fun ^_^

14. Would you give me a kidney? Sure *Goes to the Butchers*

15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: Today I was a walking puddle.

16. Would you take care of me when I'm sick? If I'm needed

18. Have you heard any rumors of me lately? There was a rumour going round that you're a Lepruchaun.

19. Do you/have you talk(ed) crap about me? Nein!

20. Do you think I'm a good person? I've not seen anything to suggest otherwise.

23. If you could change anything about me, would you? I'd make you purple. Purple is a good colour.

I'm too long winded.
13. What is your favorite memory of us?
That time we had mimosas at the House of Blues Gospel Brunch the morning after having dinner with Hugh and Stephen. Damn we ached all over, but it was worth it. ;>

14. Would you give me a kidney?
I've only got two, and every person who's run this poll wants one!

15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you:
I sleep with my head covered by a sheet and stick my feet out if I get too warm. No, wait, that's not interesting. Actually, I'm quite boring.

16. Would you take care of me when I'm sick?
Yes. I'd bring you chicken soup and ginger-ale and tea, and take your temperature.

17. Can we get together and make a cake?
Absolutely! I have a recipe for a cake with no flour in it - chocolate, and it sounds like it would be amazingly decadent, but I haven't had anyone to eat it with. :)

18. Have you heard any rumors of me lately?
Nope

\19. Do you/have you talk(ed) crap about me?
I never would.

20. Do you think I'm a good person?
Most likely.

21. Would you drive across country with me?
Yeah, that would be fun. :)

22. Do you think I'm attractive?
I have no clue, but probably. :)

23. If you could change anything about me, would you?
Not knowing you, I can't say.

24. What do you wear to sleep?
Usually nothing.

25. Would you come over for no reason just to hang out?
Hanging out would be a good reason. I would make time for it.

26. Would you go on a date with me if I asked you?
Absolutely.

27. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together?
Go for a walk in the woods, and I'd bring along my mp3 recorder and get you to talk about anything you wanted recorded for posterity about your thoughts and your life.

28. Will you repost this so I can fill it out for you?
I posted something like it a while back, I think. I'll go look and see if I can find the link. But you could just fill it out.

Ah, glad you thought so, too. Good times, good times. XD

1. Your Middle Name:
Wendy

2. Age:
40. Yes, I can hardly believe it.

3. Single or Taken:
Neither, exactly. I'm bisexual and polyamorous and have been with eor for fifteen years with the understanding that we would keep looking for another woman for a long-term triad relationship, but we don't 'date' or even want to have sex outside of the context of a relationship, so it's been a long search. (We tried having sex with a friend, once. It was awkward. Not likely to happen again, but I never say never.)

Now that was probably way more than you wanted to know, but I don't tend to hide anything.

4. Favorite Movies:
I usually list "Leon: The Professional" and "Gross Pointe Blank," but I also really adored "Shanghai Noon" for the slashyness of it. Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson both play that 'maybe he would' thing so well. :) Someday maybe I should think about finding some non-action movies to call favorites. :)

5. Favorite Songs:
At the moment, "Nagasaki" as sung by Hugh Laurie.

6. Favorite Bands/Artists:
Beat Soup and Adam Brodsky.

7. Dirty or Clean:
Clean enough, I think? I take a shower or bath most days. Or do you mean my mind? Which is pretty much dirty, but I try to keep it to myself. :) After all, not everyone wants to know that I'm slashing those two guys in my mind. Or if you want to know about my environment - I can't keep up with clutter and my desk is always a mess, but things like food dirt I really cannot abide. Anything around my food or food with other things I'm obsessive about non-contamination.

8. Tattoos and/or Piercings:
No. I don't really mind them on other people, but I'm icked out by needles. I've considered getting a small tattoo, just so I won't be the only old lady in the nursing home without one, but it would have to be an abstract thing so I wouldn't get bored of it.

9. Do we know each other outside of LJ?
I don't think so, but we barely know each other inside LJ. :)

10. Whats your philosophy on life?
Being decent to people is a much more effective way to make your life happy than trying to screw them all over, outsmart them, and get more money. Possibly learning to be decent to others is what life is all about.

11. Would you have my back in a fight?
I don't know you well enough to be sure if you're the good guy or the bad guy. :) But, if it looked as though you were being attacked, most probably.

12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest?
If it were something that nothing could be done about and you would go off the deep end about it and make everything worse, I might, but I would weigh that very carefully against what I would think you would want, because I think people should be informed.

Ah, Nagassaki by Bertie. :) Is that the piano version or the big band version?

The big band version, of course! :) (Actually I think the piano version is listed as "Barmey's Choice".)

It's great, though, isn't it? He does such fun things with his voice. :)

Yes, I think you're right. My favorite part of the big-band Nagasaki is "you know what? they sit you on the floor / And splinter you galore." DAMN, I love the way he pronounces the last syllable of 'galore'! Very posh and very "upper crust." I never get tired of hearing that!

(And too bad I didn't spell Nagasaki right in my earlier post!)

I think my all-time favorite is the big band "Minnie the Moocher." For one thing, it's the longest and has the most Bertie-sing. But I also love the instrumentals, the rhythm, just the whole thing! *way too obsessed with this for my own good*

I think it's an excellent version of Minnie the Moocher, totally aside from any of the wonderfulness of Hugh's voice (which is much much much). We were listening to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's version the other day and it just didn't seem quite as good. Although they are quite good for the big band/swing genre in the modern day.
