Another "Getting to know you" meme

This one from rivercrossing2

1. Name: Bev. If you're reading this, you probably already know my last name.


2. Birthday: Dec. 11, 19*cough*58*cough*


3. Where do you live: Northern Saratoga County, NY on the Hudson.


4: What are you studying/What are you working as: Copy editor/writer.


5. What makes you happy: Singing. Beer. Bad jokes.


6. What are you listening to now/have listened to last: A silly little Internet radio program called "The Five Dollar Freak Show." I love music but don't listen to it much during the work week, because I'll be tempted to start singing along, and it distracts my co-workers.


7. What is particularly good/bad about my LJ: Good: The mix of excellent fan fiction and insightful personal posts. Bad: Nada.


8. An interesting fact about you: I'm a morris dancer. It's ancient ritual dance from England. Google it if you're not familiar with it. It involves ringing bells, banging big sticks together and drinking good ale.


9. Are you in love/have a crush at the moment: Been in love with my NiiceDuude for going on 18 years.


10. Favorite place to be: Anywhere my peeps and I are singing.


11. Favorite lyric: "If you want to sing out, sing out. If you want to be free, be free. 'Cause there's a million things to be." (Cat Stevens)


12. Best time of the year: Late spring -- start of festival season!


13. Weirdest food you like: Smoked cheddar by chezjake



RECOMMEND

1. A film: I'm with my meme sister here: "Harold & Maude." This is the one movie I want to sit *everyone* down who hasn't seen it and make them watch. I wanna be Maude when I grow up!


2. A tv show: "House" (you have to ask?)


3. A book: "Woman on the Edge of Time" by Marge Piercy. Can I do two? A close second is "So Big" by Edna Ferber. I love the way Edna took these innocent young things, sent them to the School of Hard Knocks and turned them into beautiful, strong middle-aged women.

4. A song: “"Fish & Whistle" by John Prine. There are other songs that speak to me on a deeper level, but "F&W" is audio Prozac. You simply cannot be depressed listening to (or better yet, singing) this song.

5: A band: Gordon Bok, Ann Mayo Muir and Ed Trickett. Not a true band -- they are three solo performers who would play together. Sadly, they don't anymore. But they were magic.

FANDOM

1. Favorite Fandom: “House”: but of course!

2. OTP/OT3: I don't believe in "One True" relationships, in fandom or real life, but I mainly ship House/Cameron. Also like House/Wilson.

3. Favourite .gif: Top of this post. Found it on an Asperger's Syndrome site.

4. Icon/Fic Journal (so I can join): I post my fanfics to a separate LJ: HamOnWry.


PLUS

1. One thing you like about me: I'm going to cheat and do a threefer: You have the soul of a poet, the mind of an English teacher and the heart of a kind and loving friend.

2. Two things you like about yourself: I’m a good singer and a good listener.

3. Put this in your lj so I can tell you what I think of you? Done!
