My Space Intro: Something to Remove the Boilerplate
Welcome to the My Space page of
Researcher 172204, Tegan[-1+(7^2)-2-0-4=42]
I thought I might never have anything to record as an introduction , but I did want to remove the Boilerplate from "My Space", so here are links to some spots around here that have been helpful:
*Getting the best from the guide, by Xyroth (...), http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/A530902" >http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/A530902 ;
*Misc. Chat, http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/A121096" >http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/A121096 ;
*The Myth Of 42[(5-3+0+5)*(6+0)=42], http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/A530560" >http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/A530560 ;
*Site Statistics, http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/info" >http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/info ;
*Smiley List, http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/Smiley" >http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/Smiley ;
*Guide to GuideML, http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/Writing-GuideML" >http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/Writing-GuideML ;
*GuideML: TABLE Tag, http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/A340958" >http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/A340958 .
I'm going to have to learn that GuideML right away, I can see.
Well, OK, as it appears that any real contributions I'd want to make to on-line conversations are likely to mean posting this stuff anyway:
Vital Stats: I'm female, married, born in '57, Collidge Edjikatid, and live in a fairly conservative midwestern city (that means kinda near Chicago) in the US.
Humor, laughing (see http://www.scarysquirrel.org/" >http://www.scarysquirrel.org/ and http://www.brothersgrinn.com/soulless/main.asp" >http://www.brothersgrinn.com/soulless/main.asp .)
Art: Modern, Surrealism, Magic-realism (see http://www.marrowmonkey.com/" >http://www.marrowmonkey.com/ .)
Walks in the woods, sitting by the fire ,
Music: classical, bluesy rock-&-roll, blues
Playing with words (see http://www.wordsmith.org/words/today.html" >http://www.wordsmith.org/words/today.html .)
Skepticism (see http://www.csicop.org/" >http://www.csicop.org/ .)
Science (check out http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html" >http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html and http://www.sciencedaily.com/news/summaries.htm" >http://www.sciencedaily.com/news/summaries.htm ) and technology news; surfing the net and messing around with my PC.
Literature: science fiction; mysteries.
Food: Chocolate, Indian, Mexican, Chocolate, Serbian, Middle-Eastern, Italian, Greek, Chocolate...
Movies: The Matrix, Godfather I and II and Goodfellas, Chinatown (lots more I can't think of right now), Most Python movies
TV: Star Trek NG, Voyager (Hoping the new Star Trek: Enterprise will be decent), Babylon 5, Dr. Who, The Sopranos, X-Files, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Oz...
Hummel & Precious Moments figurines , and the effort to be polite when I realize someone I like enjoys them. ANYTHING twee.
Sentimentality (see http://www.brothersgrinn.com/soulless/hiss.asp" >http://www.brothersgrinn.com/soulless/hiss.asp )
Rudeness: people who don't thank me when I hold the door for them, e.g.
The use of apostrophes to form the plural or the present tense ("apostrophe's" and "whine's all the time"); the use of quotation marks for emphasis (Oh, I "really" hate that); "I" as object ("...to Tegan and I...").
Fantasy , or at least the damsel and dragon and stilted-language stuff.
Novels that preach instead of explore
Organized Religion, proselytizers for any religion, people who try to convince me that I can't really be an atheist.
Most of what appeals to me has a bit of an edge to it, but I'm generally a pretty generous-spirited person. Definitely an optimist. The quote I use in my sigfile follows.
"Life does not cease to be funny when people die
any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."
-- George Bernard Shaw
