Gakked from issaro, Ten Things To Know About Me.
1.) The movie The Ring, two years later, still scares the bejeebers out of me. Bejeebers, in case you are curious, is the highest form of terror in the jenn lexicon. Also included in this list are heights, claustrophobia, and snakes. I’d like to say I’m close to getting over it, but last night, just thinking about making this list reminded me of The Ring, and hello insomnia. Yeah. Nothing like watching the blank screen of your TV all night to really make your morning fun.
2.) I write. That is pretty much the entirety of my fannish participation. I feedback, I read, I write, I AIM people and pester them to write, sometimes I rec. Sometimes I moderate communities. Mostly, I’m a fandom slacker. This has led to a decrease in fannish entropy, less in the way of bitterness, and a surprisingly low blood pressure. Getting me to do something fannishly that isn’t one of the above will require blackmail. And you’d better have some seriously good dirt.
3.) I really, really hate flames, flamewars, and all flame paraphanalia. At least I hate it in the concrete. In the abstract, when it does not affect me or anyone I like, I read and mock other people’s lack of imagination. Yes, this is what I do with my limited free time. Flaming in my LJ is a bannable offense, unless I really like you a lot. I mean, a lot. Then I just may catch you on AIM and try in a passive aggressive way to make you say you are sorry. Or I may just pretend I didn’t see it, and I honestly don’t see why denial and repression aren’t embraced more openly. Trolls, however, are fair game. I’m lazy, not stupid.
4.) I really hate nutella. I mean, beyond all logic. It just bothers me. That and the recently discovered terror of vegemite, skim and extremely low fat milk, some kinds of artificial cheese, and liver.
5.) I love cookies. All kinds, all ways, all sizes, all varieties, especially the chocolate variety. I love coffee. Repeat. I love chocolate. Repeat. I have learned to love cream cheese on bagels, which was a mindblowing change in my tastes.
6.) My fandom is Stargate Atlantis; in the past – Smallville (2), Queer as Folk, Smallville (1), X-Men the Movie, Star Trek Voyager.
7.) Pretty much everything you need to know about me can be summarized by stupid cheese tricks.
8.) If you piss me off, I might post about it, minus names, because I’m passive aggressive like that, but that’s not likely, since, see two, fandom slacker. If you piss me off and you’re a friend I like a lot, I’ll go the less direct route and likely block you from my Trillian lists until I calm down enough to be reasonable. It really takes a lot to get me to display that level of energy. It’s happened five times in my LJ tenure, or so abouts. This is not likely to occur. I just really don’t often care.
9.) I unfriend for posting other people’s private entries public, for supporting the posting of private, non-feedback, non-direct-flame email public, and for gross breaches in another person’s privacy. There is very little I actually care about in fandom and online behavior, but privacy is a non-negotiable. That is pretty much the only time I’m punitive about unfriending and banning, because honestly, I have enough filtered and locked entries about my private life that even the possibility of being screwed over makes me twitchy. See number three for my only other hot button issue.
10.) In general, I like people until they give me concrete reasons not to. It takes a lot.
Hmm. Anything you think you should know about me?
