Why, Oh Why?  
I did this over at valiha's. Fair warning though, in a lot of cases I totally can't remember exactly when and why I friended people! I have a lousy memory [g]

Leave a comment and I'll:

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a color, a photo, a word etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you. (To which you must respond!)
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. In return, you must post this in your LJ.

1. Tell you why I friended you.
I met you during the election, and I just loved your youthful enthusiasm and joy at being able to vote. I remember that feeling, even if it was a long time ago :)
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a color, a photo, a word etc.
Evan Bayh !
3. Tell you something I like about you.
Your zest for life.

finding out you were an ABBA fan!
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you. (To which you must respond!)
What's your fave ABBA song?

I honestly love how everyone associates me with either Hillary Clinton or Evan Bayh. Centrist and bipartisan Democrats for the win! :D
Partisan Democrats (and Republicans) make me want to do a million *headdesk*'s. I just can't stand the unwillingness of so many people in congress to work together.

My favorite ABBA song is Chiquitita!

(Also, this icon is one of Emilie Autumn. She's a singer.)

Yeah, I guess it doesn't really show in my journal, certainly not as much as my Egypt obsession anyway. My obsession with Japan started when I was really little - one of my first real memories is of thinking how beautiful my mam's kimono was. I've loved katanas for a really long time (before Highlander I'd like to add) and I mean love - I own two and I'd own more if they weren't so expensive. I've read every book I can lay my hands on about samurai, geisha, noh theatre, kabuki, netske, zen buddhism, shinto and Japanese history, art, music and mythology. I've studied bushido, kendo, Okinawan karate (by this I mean home study - I can't afford classes) and I keep trying to learn the language, but keep failing. Sushi is my favourite kind of food, I have a poster of The Great Wave on my wall and even modern Japan obsesses me - harajuku girls, technology, manga and anime, Miyazki is one of my all time favourite auteurs, the list could go on but I'd run out of comment. I guess you could say I'm a fan of Japan. *grin*
Ith: Japan - Blue Girlithildyn on April 24th, 2009 02:39 am (UTC)
Is your mum Japanese? Or did she just own a kimono? I have a jacket made from an antique kimono that I adore!

I adored amber jewelery long before Jurassic Park, so I know what you mean!

I love Japan. I call it my alternate culture. It may have come from how I grew up, meeting many Japanese businessmen via my father's work. I've taken Japanese ans was actually quite good at it.

Have you read the Sano Ichiro novels?
But, I don't want to be a pie,: seriouslyidontlikegravy on April 25th, 2009 10:48 am (UTC)
Mum's Welsh, as are all my family. I discovered later it wasn't even a real kimono, just one of those silk dressing gowns everyone bought in the seventies, but it always sticks in my head as a kimono. Sorry, should have clarified that before!

I've never actually met a Japanese person, at least not beyond a 'hello' when I worked in the museum. As I've said before, I do wonder if perhaps it was a previous life, it just all feels very right, and like it's my culture. *shrugs*

The failure to learn is laziness on my part, really, I start to learn with good intentions, but then I get distracted and forget stuff, and then I just give up again. I'm terrible for that. It's why I have so many hobbies, I get bored very easily and then I'm like 'ooh, shiny thing' and I'm off on the next thing *grin*

I have not read them, but having looked them up on Waterstones I shall be adding them to my reading list! :)

my top five movie quotes? good lord, this might be tough. i talk in movie lines with my sister, so i have arseloads of favorites. so let's see what pops in my head...

ok, here we go...

"not too high, too hard... who gives a shit it's gone!" Major league, the fans in the stands are talking about a home run that someone said didn't have a chance cuz it was too high.

"they killed jesus... who are the jews?! open up sucko!!" from PCU, which i highly recommend (this is david spade having to answer questions to be let into his own frat)

"we're gonna need a bigger boat." Jaws... and it applies to everything!

"you just got served." you would be surprised how often this can be used and is hysterical. and so much fun to use in the most inappropriate times... :D

"get fucked four eyes!" from shawn of the dead. my brother and i say this to each other all the time (always in humor).

i have tons more, these are just the ones that popped in my random-firing brain.

The sense of ancient culture. Both my hometown Mostar and Sarajevo are old cities, and it is impossible to go to certain areas and not feel awed at the fact that many others have stood in the same spot for hundreds and hundreds of years.

The Sarajevo area itself has been settled since the Neolithic times, and there are still traces of that old culture, both in the artifacts and the faces of the people (Slavs, who arrived here during the 7th century, are taller and slimmer, while the Illyrians are shorter and stockier.) An interesting fact: Sarajevo was the first city in Europe to have a full-time (from dawn to dusk) operational electric tram line. Since then it has upgraded to more modern trams.

Mostar has the Old Bridge of course, built in 1567, and has been a site of annual high diving competitions for the past 350-400 years, depending on the source. Jumping off the Bridge is not without risks, since the Neretva River is very cold, and the air temperature can get as high as 45°C/113°F in the sun. The Old Bridge itself is 24m (78ft 9in)high.

I love to listen to you ramble - I am fascinated by the way your muse works and it always helps kick mine into gear.

Music - Mostly classic rock - Dean and I share musical taste. Been introducing Brett to Rush and the Who because many of their songs are available for download on RockBand - Nothing beats having him ask to play "Closer to the Heart" one more time with me - he's amazing on those fake drums. But the song that has been stuck in my head for days now is "Jai Ho - You are my destiny" from Slumdog Millionaire - I may have to hand in my rock credentials over that one but I love that song.

What, you were expecting a short answer from me?
