1~ I have a pet rock.

2~ you're a very talented writer.

3~ non-compliment?

4~ Love Note...I've effectively erased all memories of such cringe-worthy acts from my mind.

5~ Venus De Milo in her half backed shell, undertsood the nature of love very well. She said a good love is delicious, You can't get enough too soon. Makes you so crazy, you wanna swallow the moon... ("Jupiter"- Jewel)

6~ I'll be 29 in 42 days.

7~ Not very long.

8~ "Ah, but any head cut off with the Grim Reaper's scythe stays off... forever!" (ahah... that doesn't tell you much does it?)

Um ... I'm the very definition of vexation. Everybody says I'm a talented writer (not that I'm complaining), I can't place the quote, and I'm too exhausted to look for everyone's age. Actually, I hardly know anyone's age. The best I can do is guess that you're a female, and that's just the law of averages. :-(
May. 19th, 2007 09:45 am (UTC)
aha! This would be me here (*points above):)
May. 20th, 2007 07:10 am (UTC)
Eek! I had you tagged under someone else! I'm so embarrassed ...

1~ One secret about yourself - Secret?? Um... I can't think of any.
2~ One compliment - You are a very witty and emotive writer.
3~ One non-compliment - I never really liked you anyway and... and you have stupid hair.
4~ One love note you have thought of, or actually have written - The violets are wilted, the roses are dead, quit trying to be romantic and get your arse in bed!! (Yeah, I know...it sucks... but what do you expect on such short notice! lol)
5~ Lyrics to a song - You better stand tall when they're calling you out--don't bend, don't break. Baby, don't back down!
6~ How old you are - 38
7~ How long we've been friends - A year-ish
8~ And a hint to who you are - I hate the cold. And I don't do memes. lol
9~ After you do it for me, put it in your LJ and see who does it for you! - See response to #8!!
May. 19th, 2007 08:40 am (UTC)
Aha -- you've seen my hair!

Yeah, I got nothing. You're British and you're female, that's as far as I've gotten, and looking through my flist I realize I've got a bunch of female British friends. And you all hate the cold!
May. 19th, 2007 11:48 am (UTC)
Actually, I'm Australian! Well, I was born in England...but I am definitely Australian! lol
May. 20th, 2007 07:17 am (UTC)
You've seen my hair???

On a more serious note, we've only known each other for about a year? Sometimes I forget how quickly friendships can grow on LJ.

+ I hate televised sport

+ Your writing rocks

+ You shouldn't be permitted near power tools in the vicinity of your own house

+ Not my thing

+ Tryin' hard to understand the meaning that you'll see in me ... Tryin' hard to understand the meaning that you'll see in me ... There’s a meaning there, but the meaning there doesn't really mean a thing ... Come and see the real thing, come and see the real thing, come and see ... I am the real thing! Russell Morris - The Real Thing
I'm burning through the skies Yeah! ... Two hundred degrees ... That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit ... I'm trav'ling at the speed of light ... I wanna make a supersonic man out of you Queen - Don't Stop Me Now

+ Oh, go on, guess. You could cut me in half and count the rings

+ I suck at remembering stuff like that. A couple of years?

+ I'm not local
May. 19th, 2007 08:44 am (UTC)
*sigh* I suck at this. I never get the villian in the mystery until the last page. I was going to guess you were one of my younger friends, until I got to the half about the rings, and almost nobody on my flist is local. You're obviously one of my older LJ friends (I mean time, not age), female, and probably British, and that's all I've got. Who started this torturous meme, anyway? :-(
May. 20th, 2007 10:33 am (UTC)
I'm thinking my secret should have been that I have a Doris Day obsession, but I don't think that would have helped.

I'd hoped Russell Morris would have helped narrow it down, but I don't think the song left Australia. You really need to be local to appreciate the Russell Morris / Johnny Young / Molly Meldrum connection. However, I doubt you'd be surprised to find that Coke have used it in ad campaigns over the years.

I also adore The Vandals version of Don't Stop Me Now, which may have thrown a further spanner in the works if I mentioned it.

As for the age thing, I'm 15 years older than some of the guys I work with and they can't guess my age either. Stupid hair and default rantiness may have something to do with that.

The Queen lyrics made me think you might be from England, which is ridiculous considering I have two Queen CD's, myself. I haven't heard of Russell Morris that I know of; it's possible I've heard his music and didn't know who did it. We tend to be eclectic musically in my household, but I don't pay attention to the artist when my daughters bring a new song in.

The writing in your post *did* make me think of you, but I wasn't convinced enough to make the guess. I should take a chance more often.

And why is your hair stupid?
May. 20th, 2007 12:25 pm (UTC)
Re: d'oh!
I have Sideshow Bob hair: orange dreadlocks. I quite like it. Until I don't, then I'll shave it off and start again.

Re: d'oh!
No kidding? I guess I've never seen a photo of you except for the stitches ... I always pictured you as being a strange combination of stiff British and stoic Native American. No, I don't know why.
May. 18th, 2007 01:56 pm (UTC)
1~ I actually own a Britney Spears CD... and the Backstreet boys too
2~ You are hysterical
3~ Erm... your LJ has an odd font
4~ I used to write love poetry for my friends' boyfriends for them - I believe I used "ocean and tides" to describe love
5~ If I cry me a river of all my confessions, would I drown in my shallow regret?
6~ 28
7~ About a month
8~ I'm probably the only person I know who ended up liking Dawn the most by the end of Buffy
May. 19th, 2007 08:58 am (UTC)
Um ... yume_kokoro? I'm terrible at this, but that's the right age range. If I guess right, will you admit to owning those CD's?

No, that's not right -- yume_kokoro wouldn't be likely to mention Dawn and Buffy under number 8. Only a month ...? Man, I suck at this. *grinds teeth, goes for the Tylenol*

Say, what's wrong with my font? :-0
May. 21st, 2007 08:10 am (UTC)
Should I keep letting you guess? :p

Mmm font.... maybe that can be a hint too.
May. 25th, 2007 06:52 am (UTC)
font? Nope -- I got nothing. I'm striking out terrible on almost *everybody*. *sob*
May. 19th, 2007 07:33 pm (UTC)
I'm afraid of bees.
You are a good father.
Can't think of one.
Random, small post-its with words of love.
I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time she smiles
And when I come to her thats where I belong
Yet Im running to her like a rivers song
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

A while.
My name appears in many songs.
May. 20th, 2007 07:23 am (UTC)
Well, what sane person isn't afraid of bees? :-) I remember you talking about that -- but I can't remember the "who" part.

Um, your real name or your LJ name? The only LJ name that fits into songs -- at least, the only that comes to mine -- is redwolfoz.

Am I the *only* person on my list who gives his year of birth?! (so much for cheating)
May. 20th, 2007 11:17 am (UTC)
second guess then?
a part of my LJ name is often used in romantic songs

Am I the *only* person on my list who gives his year of birth?! (so much for cheating)
LOL - I knew there was a reason I didn't put my year of birth in the profile... but I think you should know how old I am
May. 25th, 2007 06:58 am (UTC)
May. 20th, 2007 01:47 am (UTC)

1~ but... you know all my secrets. or the important ones, at least.
2~ you're quite the good singer
3~ uh.. you live entirely too far away!
4~ you cheated on mine, i'm not answering yours ;p
5~ however far away, i will always love you
6~ 18
7~ Since last August.
8~ if you really haven't guessed, google that lyric; the band that sings that song is my favorite.
May. 20th, 2007 07:26 am (UTC)
Hello, strangexgirl! (Finally, I got one right!)

You haven't polled the people of Albion on the singing thing, have you?
