Meme and an x-mass memorey


from ani_bester 

1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you which song or movie you remind me of.
3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to eat with you.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me. (if possible. If not, I'll say something that only makes sense to me.)
5. I'll tell you my first most prominent memory of you .
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something I've always wondered about you.
8. I'll tell you my favorite thing about you.
9. I'll tell you my least favorite thing about you (if I can think of something, honestly on LJ, it's hard for me to dislike someone)
10. If you play, you should really post this on yours

ok - this is going to sound wierd.  And maybe a little sad - but I don't see it that way.  My strongest memory of an early x-mass (it must have been between 1974 and 1976) is of my dad and I standing outside a tree lot waiting for them to get rid of the trees that hadn't sold.  Back then you could get a christmas tree on teh 24th for free.  So after church we would go find a tree and then decorate it.  To this day it still feels wrong to have a tree before the 24th (even though I have a fake tree and so I could have it up as long as I would want).  Trees arn't free on Christmass eve anymore - that makes me very very sad.

commenting!

And now, I don't think it's sad, It's a lovely memory. ON the same note, I can remember going through a tree lo outside a church Eagle scouts sold them there and we'd choose one around Christmas, though I don't think on Christmas eve.
Fake trees are sad to me. Brandon and I have agreed that we''ll have a real tree. We are both the annoying hold outs in our families who feel a real tree is worth the expense and hassle, but were outvoted and most cope with fake trees in our respective families.

I have a fake tree now - I got it when I lived in Boston - it's hard to get real trees up there. I don't mind it - but it's not the same.

1) I have one of your BSG comics on my bedroom wall - it's right under a picture of Mike Modono in his Dallas Stars Uniform.
2)
3) yellow
4) REmus would love a green chair if he though it would love him back
5)It's not a memory of you so much as your work - You did a pic of Peter adn Remus together in the kitchen of Hogwarts - it was at Elfwood and it was the first peice of art I commented on on line.
6)well I think of the rats - cause of the rats - but I don't think that's becasue of you. Although you are smart and frendly - two things I accocate with rats.
7)What made you want to persue art?
8)You are open and interested in SO many things
9) You are too hard on yourself.

1. Seriously! That is awesome! *WOW*
3. What is yellow jello flavor?
4. *snerk* so so so true
5. OMG Yeah I think I finally pulled that off my site given some people at work started poking around my art site, but yeah, that got me my first ever HUGE flame *LOL* I still like the image a lot.

6. YAY!

7. Honestly I can't say specifically. I've always drawn. I did these dinosaur comics back when I was real little, but I was really blown away with Usagi Yojimbo and Elfquest and the idea that one person could do all that art. And then I realized it was easier for me to tell stories with art than with images. I told stories but with art and stuff *L* I had OH so many Mary sues that I drew. I'm glad I had no internet connection when I was young =P

It also was a way to stand out I think. My art got me noticed and I liked that ^^

8. Thank you!

9. =P Maybe sometimes yes ^^

1) yeah I have guilty by association up.
3) I think yellow is lemon - but I'm not sure.
4) yeah
5) I loved that pic - and it seemed so unfair to be flamed for it.
6) I had rats when I was young - loved them.
7) that's a better story then my writting stroy (I couldn't afford a birthday present for a freind LOL)

9) but I think that is true of all of us.
