So [profile] artemisfur is collecting a list of important life lessons. I've contributed a few of mine; you should go and do the same! I think the finished product is going to be rather amusing.

Oh dear, a meme. I'll get that out of the way first, and I blame [livejournal.com profile] skorzy and [livejournal.com profile] atara for it:

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in/curious about - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life!

Please note that it may take a few days to get to all of the requests (if there are any), but I'll do my darnedest to accommodate them all. Now, I reserves the right to interpret any and all requests however I like, though ;-)

Now that that's out of the way...Yesterday was rather busy. I slipped out from work a little early (considering I get into work each day 20-30 minutes early, this is no big deal) and ran up to Lovin' Oven Cakery to pick up some tasty stuff for a certain panda's birthday. On the way, I got a call the my new glasses were ready, so I stopped by the opticians in Grayslake (navigating through the weekly Farmer's Market) to get them, then raced home and did some last-minute cleaning. Dan got home a little late (he'd had to drive in due to a little problem that Metra had), and were then joined by [livejournal.com profile] steviemaxwell, [livejournal.com profile] magicpaw, [livejournal.com profile] midwestcougar, [livejournal.com profile] nymphara and her new squeeze, Nick, and [livejournal.com profile] roho and [livejournal.com profile] genet. While the crowd played a couple of rounds of poker, I busied myself grilling up a multitude of brats and hot dogs and hamburgers. Everyone had a good bit of fun, and Dan had fun making appletinis. Genet and I elected to chat while everyone else played games, and that was fine - I wasn't much in a poker mood. For dessert we had a couple of monstrous ├ęclairs that we cut up for serving, as well a couple different kinds of strudel. Yummy! We didn't get to bed until after 11 PM, though, and both Dan and I are dragging a bit today as a result.

Not much going on today, though I do have my annual checkup with my doctor right after work today. Tomorrow we'll be heading up to Antioch to stock up on some important items for Anthrocon, and I may see about taking Dan's car in for emissions testing as well.

Enough people have done this for me, I suppose I should return the favor:
1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll challenge you to try something.
3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you. (that's a bit silly, but whatever)
4. I'll tell you something I like about you.
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you.

Good heavens, it's a meme! Heaven forfend!

(Coming to you live from Panera in Glen Ellyn, on a laptop with a slowly dying battery and no electrical sockets available)

All the other cools kids are doing it!

As much as I'd like to post the version of this meme that [livejournal.com profile] steviemaxwell proposed, I don't have the battery power to type up all the requisite stuff. So let's go with the original version:
Post a memory of me in the comments. It can be anything you want. Then, if you wish, post this to your journal and see what people remember of you.

Other short stuff (more info coming soon):
- Interview went well. Won't know results until "sometime before the end of May".
- Lots of driving. No problems. Yay.
- Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mirkowuff for putting me up last night and for a lovely breakfast!
- Off to pick up [livejournal.com profile] takaza at O'Hare at 5 PM. ("Honey, you want me to pick you up at O'Hare at 5 PM on a Friday afternoon? If you hate me, why can't you just beat me like normal people do...")

Oops, battery dying, gotta go...

I've visited every state east of the Mississippi except Michigan. Strange, since it's not too far away from Chicago, but I've just never had occasion to go there. Maybe we'll swing through on the way home just to say I've been there.

Interesting, if superficial, personality-type quiz below )
duncandahusky: (Default)
I saw this yesterday on my FriendsFriends, and I was wondering who on my friends list would be the first to pick it up. Congratulations, [livejournal.com profile] artemisfur! :-)

Everyone needs a trading card, after all )
duncandahusky: (pukey-cute)
Moo. Moo, I say.

Number of people on my LJ friends list: 34 (plus 6 communities)
...whom I've met in person: 27
...whom I've met in person more than once: 24
...whose house I've been to: 8 (counting [livejournal.com profile] takaza :-)
...who have been to my house: 12
...whose precise geographic location I know offhand: 26
...whose full names I know offhand: 21
...whom I've followed/been in touch with for more than 3 years: 11
...who live outside my country: 1 (hi [livejournal.com profile] swampy!)
...whose journal I consider myself "addicted" to: 5
...whom I've lived with: 1
...who's an ex: 1
...who I'd do: 15 {looks innocent}
...who I've done: {mumble} No comment :-)
...who I have a secret crush on: 0
duncandahusky: (Me - RL)
From an idea first mentioned on Harrumph:
1. I've played tennis with a winner of the U.S. Open.
2. I backed into Bob Denver's car once, scratching his fender.
3. I've danced a Highland reel with Fiona Ritchie.

Hey, that's kind of fun. Let's do one more set:
1. I've been hang gliding at Lookout Mountain, Tennessee.
2. I've been skiing in the French Alps.
3. I've bungee-jumped from the New River Bridge.

So, which are true, and which are lies?

(Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] genebreshears for the idea for this entry)

So, I don't know if anyone has ever looked, but a while back (and occasionally again since then) I had fun dumping everything I could think of into my interest list. When they announced the cool Interest Matching service on [livejournal.com profile] paidmembers last week, I had a little fun and thought I'd see who came up on my list (note: I think this service is only for paid members right now). Interesting. I think that the "magic index" has less to do with how many similar interests you have with a person than the number of similar interests divided by the number of people who list those interests. Thus, if you like, for instance, "food" and 23,192 other people like "food", this would give a low index number. However, if you like "chocolate-covered mothballs" and only three other people list that as an interest, the index would be much higher.

So, what did I get?
