Continuing the "talk about your flist" meme. Hopefully I'll do this more than every other week in the future, eh?demonstrable
once took apart a Mac SE for me so I could see the signatures of the engineering team on the inside of the case. It was fracking awesome.diadem_chi
is in the process of moving up to Seattle and thus converting into one of my friends who used to live in the Bay Area. This makes me pretty sad (I would rather that she keep being a friend who lives in the Bay Area) but I'm excited that she has found such a cool house. Incidentally, if she could explain to me why her husband's IM status message has been "I want my house back" for the last month, I'd be grateful.
I befriended digitalemur
when I used to lurk in her office all the time. Ironically, via the power of the internet, I've gotten to know her a lot better since I left college and we became internet friends. I love her witty and interesting posts and links. And having obscure facebook conversations about Torchwood.
I haven't seen or been in touch with discolympics
since we graduated, which is ironic because now I know rather a lot of people who went to high school with her. ::Evil laugh.::dmp
was my favorite Harry Potter fanfiction author when I was in high school, which made me excessively shy about meeting her in person when we wound up going to college together. I wish I hadn't been. Most recently she's been writing fascinating essays about race and steampunk.
Ironically, I don't think douxquemiel
have ever had a fannish conversation in person, since our RL friendship was mediated almost entirely by Eliot House and the MHC religion department.
I really miss e_4
. I get wildly excited any time ze or glasser_rev
venture onto the internet, and I wish them both the best.
These days I mostly follow e_clare
via Twitter. People have voted, and the following is certifiably true: she has New York City's most comfortable couch for a visitor to sleep on.
Every time I have a conversation with eccentric_hat
, I feel so lucky that someone as smart as she is is my friend. Recently she has taught me rather a lot about wolves, and she can always be counted on for a fun Teddy Roosevelt fact. Also, I shamelessly stole her interior decoration via crayon art scheme.ellen_franklin
is another family member I acquired through oliviacirce
. She's had a huge impact on not just me, but my immediate family as well--my mother is currently working on her dissertation under Ellen.emmihead
first introduced me to Dinosaur Comics, and for that I sing her praises to the high heavens.
Mostly I know what happens in emmyskier
's life via a gossip chain that involves both of our mothers as intermediaries, a very sorry state of affairs for two people who live in adjoining counties. For those who want to point fingers, she is entirely to blame for my love of the grotesque.empress_elle
is very far away, geographically speaking, and very close, emotionally speaking. I think we're going through a lot of the same emotional experience as we think about running away from the big corporations where we work to become the sort of lawyers who do good in the world. Man I miss her.
Just thinking about eslafunnynunny
makes me smile and want to hold a spontaneous one-song dance party in a dorm room.
I don't know quite what to say about falxumbra
, but it involves bluegrass covers of pop songs, incredible artistic talent, and my introduction to D&D.februaryfour
is one year and one day older than me, and is wicked smart.
become the next Tina Fae yet? Because maybe when she does I'll start watching network tv again.flame_of_kali
was, once upon a time, my fencing buddy. I miss those times.
