Let me...write about...you!

I found this on the blogs of two friends of mine, Jen W. and Greg K. It's kind of irresistable for some reason. I spent like an hour reading what Jen and Greg really thought about their friends/blog readers. I didn't even know most of them. Maybe I was just born to be an internet stalker. But then again, I guess you, reader, were as well.

So, comment and...

1. I'll respond with something random about you.

2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.

3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle with you in. (Ed. note: Actually, I'm not going to do this one. Not because I don't want to wrestle you, but because I don't want to tell you what flavor I'd pick. It'd ruin the surprise.)

4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me. (Ed. note: If I don't know you well, I will instead say something that only makes sense to me alone.)

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of. (Ed. note: My favorite one! I would do this anyway, but just not tell you.)

7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.

Who's willing to be judged?

For Jessica:

1. I'll respond with something random about you.

There was once upon a time when I was worried about your authenticity, but now I know you are 100% real and I am very proud of you for that. No sarcasm whatsoever.

2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.

Remember when we saw Eternal Sunshine together? Of course you do.

3. N/a

4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.

Soiree.

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.

I'll use favorite memory: When you, me and Judson had that threesome until 7 am in D-Square #34 last summer. And by "threesome" I mean a "transcendent moment of music".

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.

Um...this is really hard. Mostly b/c I know you so well. I'll think about it and post soon.

7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.

Do you still like girls? And why or why not?

James said...

1. As I've said to you before, Greg, you remind me of someone I like--Me. But taller. And less Asian.

2. "Harold and Maude". I could see you dating an experienced lady. You kind of look like that guy too.

3. N/a

4. Literary criticism. But only to you, not me. I just don't see what you see in it.

5. When we swordfought at the peeing trough in Tiger Town. Oh wait, that wasn't you...

I guess when you were telling me that really long quote about why you love lit crit so much while I was trying to drink wine and make merry. Just kidding, I was listening.

6. You kinda remind me of a panda. But again, taller and less Asian.

7. Did you ever finish that story about being in a fiction workshop with your ex, writing a story clearly about her, and then having everyone read and critique that story?

greg said...

5. No, no that was me.
7. Nay! That went in the self-indulgent tripe bin months ago.

I'm living in Greenville right now, but I'll be in town this weekend. Let's get together.

i almost feel like i'm getting a surprise for doing this.... although that surprise could be an unfortunate, animal look-alike realization

Trevor said...

Trevor stumbles drunkenly upon James's entry for today, weighs responding to it, then realizes that not only is he not drunk, he's not even responding to James but just blathering on for no good reason...and wondering if "Battlefield Earth" is really all that bad.

Um...yeah.

James said...

For Katie:

1. Your taste in music is quite good, but your taste in roommates, alas, is not.

2. "Tiger Rag" because it seems like every time I go to Tiger Town, I run into you. You drunk. (Teasing. Or am I?)

4. Liberal hater!

5. Papa John's downtown. You were getting a pizza; I was peeing on your car.

Actually I stole that one from Craigslist.org. What I really like about you is when we talk about books and music in bars downtown and then receive funny looks from the people around us.

6. In your photo on facebook, you look very Beaveresque. Must be the whiskers and the glimmer in your eyes.

7. How can you like Toni Morrison?! I mean, she's black, for one thing.

1. I'll respond with something random about you.

-What isn't random about us even knowing each other?

2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.

-Anything by the Click Five.

4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.

-Orphan.

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.

-Maybe not the first or clearest memory, but a great one nonetheless was when we were trying to figure out if that blonde girl at the airport was with her kid and then the airport person asked her about it and we busted out laughing. I knew we were going to get along well after that.

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.

-When your hair is styled like a black person, you are a porcupine. (Like before we went out that night in Boston.)

7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.

-The first time we hung out, did you think we were going to sleep together?

Jessica:

Late I know, but I finally figured out your animal. It's a cat.
