Interview 11

Interview meme time again. Comment if you want to be questioned.



1. Why wear do you black?


I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times

(Johnny Cash, "the Man in Black")

Okay, that's not really remotely true.


I wear black on the outside because black is how I feel on the inside

(Morrisey, "Unloveable")

There was a time when that was true.

These days, it's a complicated combination of identification and filtering. I'm going to be weird no matter what I do - wearing black gives people something to point at. It puts off people I don't want to talk to, and catches the eye of people I do want to talk to.

2. What single fictional technological or magical device do you lust after?

After my dream a few days ago, 7 league boots - rapid transportation that still lets me get some exercise! I did some back of envelope calculations, and 7 leagues per stride gets me about 640 kph at a steady run, which is about half the speed of sound.

3. If you could ask an all-knowing being a single question, what would it be?

How can I love without pain?

4. If you could have a favourite artist or photographer do a picture of you, who would do it and what would the setting be?

Munch, maybe? Or Van Gogh? Something swirly and stark. I don't have the right face or body shape for a Giger work. "Favourite artist" is one of those things I have a hell of a time pinning down.

5. What should I have for dinner? (assume I'll go get ingredients)

Chicken curry with a yogurt sauce, mint-coriander raita, chana masala, vegetable curry, basmati rice and some naan analog (flatbread/"pizza shells" work well)!

1. What should I have for dinner?
2. If you could clone one person, who and why?
3. If you could replace one person with a robot double you controlled, who and why?
4. If someone gave you a pile of money, where would you live?
5. Which is more exciting/addictive to you: tv, car or internet?

That's why I saved it for an all-knowing being!

There's got to be at least a break-even point, somehow.

Hmm. I am unfond of marriage as an institution, in part because of the possession reasoning (also for a lot of other reasons, only tangentially related to the current topic). I disagree with you on rings though - I like having visible symbols of comittment, and visible inidcators of relationship status. I just think our current symbolism is woefully underdeveloped for the complicated social patterns even "normal" people have available to them.

*smile*

I, on the other hand, feel as if I'm in permanent camouflage. People I'd be interested in talking to see me and just see my suit. Too bad I'm, y'know, a financial services lawyer.

There are, I suspect, ways to subvert the spirit of the rules while sticking to the letter of them, even in your job. The question is, how far can the envelope be pushed? There's got to be some way to be "the weird one" while still being professional - if that's what you want.

1. How did you come upon Amber?
2. If could were given a bottomless budget to design a house with Djinn and have it built, what would it be like?
3. What's your favourite holiday?
4. If you could learn to speak with animals, which animal would you want to talk to?
5. If you could have anything for dinner tonight, made perfectly, what would it be?

Done.

Well, sort of done. Please see my LJ.
