|03:12 pm - why not make it meme day? part 2|
This is the problem with LJ - we all think we are so close, and while we know about the day-to-day, there's still a lot we don't know about each other. So let's rectify it.
I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. I promise, I will not make fun of you, or say who asked what; I won't divulge any social security numbers and stuff, but I'll try to answer everything.
I then invite you to do the same. Remember, seriously basic stupid questions, don't be embarrassed, you would be really shocked what I don't know about you.
I also can't promise not to be wordy. Nor do I quite know how to implement the not showing who asked what, so I may not be able to successfully offer that protection. I also have trouble imagining people aren't entirely content to leave the veil unpierced, so I'm curious to see what people are curious about.

Are you still wearing black most of the time? (Most people should know this one, but I don't for logisitical reasons)

Sadly, no. When I had gastric bypass surgery, I started buying clothing at thrift shops, mostly, since it wouldn't likely fit for long. I don't have much of a wardrobe these days beyond t-shirts and jeans even though I've been about this size for a while. T-shirts and jeans works, since any day I wear a dress to work will turn out to be a day I need to crawl around under desks to mess with computer equipment.
What are your feelings on the phrase "most unique"?

I tend to come down on the descriptive grammarian side, so I can handle that it is a construction that is used, albeit sloppily. I would tend to interpret it as meaning an exemplary example of a rare class if I heard someone using it. After all, there are not many things that are the only one of their kind, as Google will quickly show you.
I don't have a problem with "alternate universe" either, although the same complaint about uni meaning there can be only one would apply.
I think I'll ask you what tamiam
asked me: what would be your dream job?

That is a tough one. I know lots of things it isn't, by now, with a great deal of certainty.
It would involve knowledge, have flexible hours, and not require me to answer the phone. Or talk to people much at all, really. It's indoors, sitting down, and doesn't involve getting messy. It has to pay enough for me to continue in the lifestyle to which I have become accustomed. It should not exacerbate my depression...
I've thought that reviewing things might be pretty close to my dream job - writing book reviews or movie reviews are the first two that spring to mind, but really anything from laptops to labyrinths would probably be fun. Or being a database administrator.
Or my dream-dream job of not having to have one at all.
