The Alphabet Meme

[personal profile] stonebender gave me W.

Something I hate: War

Something I love: Weather. Much as I love Northern California, I miss the extreme weather back home. Thunderstorms, blizzards, the occasional nor'easter.

Somewhere I have been: Washington, DC. I love the Smithsonian with a deep, strong love.

Somewhere I would like to go: Washington State. I've never been, and I hear it's beautiful.

Someone I know: I think the only W I know was my college boyfriend.

Best movie: Witness. Lyrical, beautifully photographed, with a tense, suspenseful plot contrasting with the serenity of the Pennsylvania countryside. How did Peter Weir, an Australian, so perfectly capture the look and feel and almost smell of PA? Kelly McGillis as the Amish widow whose small son (Lukas Haas, age about 6) witnesses a murder in Philadelphia's 30th Street Station. Harrison Ford and Danny Glover as good cops; Josef Sommer, Alexander Godunov, and Viggo Mortensen in his first screen role as Amish farmers. Also, you get to see Harrison Ford, a professional carpenter, actually working with wood. Cinematography by John Seale, who was also responsible for the beautiful images of The English Patient (and whose eye for light was the best thing about the very disappointing Dead Poets' Society). And a great soundtrack by Maurice Jarre.

[personal profile] nanila gave me F.

Something I hate: Flash-animated websites. If HTML was good enough for Alexander Graham Bell, it's good enough for me. (That's a joke, son.)

Something I love: FOGcon! Also fiction, fairs, freedom, fast cars, fossils, friends, family.

Somewhere I have been: Forest City, PA.

Somewhere I would like to go: Fairbanks, Alaska. I'd like to see the interior before I die. Or any of it, really.

Someone I know: I have a great-aunt whose name starts with F.

Best movie: Fantasia and Fantasia 2000.

The Bio Meme: 39

You comment, I give you an age (please tell me how old you are, or risk having to time-travel to find out the answers) and you respond to the meme questions with what applied to you back then, and what's true now.

[personal profile] elainegrey gave me 39. I turned 39 in August 1998. I recently did 45.

TW for lots of things. I swear not every year is a traumatic nightmare. )

Gnawin' on It

A combined meme and personal update. Also a pop-culture query.

Life is still unsettled, but that's just how it's going to be for a while. I'm hanging in there. Trying to get myself more organized and to continue the vast project of stripping down my possessions. Still fighting insomnia and leftover PTSD brain chemicals.

Luckily, I have a lot to look forward to: cheering the Giants in the Series, [personal profile] joedecker's art opening, the Richard Shindell concert. Also turns out that Shindell, a thoughtful, complex folksinger whose work I find tremendously moving, was in the Boy Scouts with my cousins in Long Island. They didn't know he was a musician. It's very small and somewhat bizarre world.

I could use some help on Saturday while I am sorting stuff in my old storage unit and moving it to the new smaller unit. The moving of stuff is easy -- they supply wheely carts -- and mainly what I want is company while I sort stuff. If you're willing to take stuff for yourself, to give away, or to drop at a thrift shop, better yet, but this isn't a requirement. Being willing to listen to me laugh, scream, cry, and tell long pointless stories about what I unearth is essential, however.

We watched Bubba Ho-Tep the other night, which I enjoyed a lot. Ossie Davis is a brilliant actor.

What's up with you?

Also, have you ever heard of Awkward Turtle? Used the gesture? Seen it used? When did it start?

The Icon-o-Meme

Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this (if you wish) to your own journal using your own favorite icon.

I love all my icons, but the default userpic and this one (the Domineditrix) are the ones I refuse to share.
