Read and Enjoy! Remember: 8 days til landgrab!

1) What is one of your favorite things to do alone at Pennsic?
Listen to distant drumming while staring into the last embers of a deserted fire pit.
2) What is one of your favorite things to do with a group at Pennsic?
Exchange gossip and funny stories with my friends while ingesting tastey goodies in the comfort of my coffee shop.
3) What is one of your best Pennsic Memories?
Staying up HOURS past the point of slap-happiness with Doug and Griffin, doing laps around the lake and attempting to hang the Timberwolf pavillion chandelier by standing on Griffin's shoulders.
4) What is one of your weirdest Pennsic Memories?
Babysitting myself at 4:00 in the morning after being dosed with what was apparently LSD at a very crowded party. One of my camp mates was trying to be cheerful and chatty, but I couldn't look at her because her face kept morphing into that of one of the Gamorrean Guards from Jabba's palace, which was VERY disconcerting.
5) What was your first Pennsic?
Pennsic 23. I was 17 years old and DELIGHTED to dig trenches on the Serengetti with my Daddy while wearing funny clothes. Dad still thinks I'm nuts, but continues to do his best to be "supportive."
6) How many/which Pennsics have you attended?
This will be my 15th. I've never missed a Pennsic since my first back in 1994.
7) What keeps you going back to Pennsic?
At first it was the hot-geek-boys.
Then it was close friends.
Then it was the close friends who suddenly turned into hot-geek-boyfriends.
Some years, I think it's just sheer momentum.
And these days... the summer crawls on, melancholy and incomplete until my hair smells of woodsmoke and I am serenaded into slumber by the sound of drums and laughter.
8) Are you going to Pennsic this year?
Of course.
9) What group/block do you usually camp in?
Vlad's Pleasure Pavilions on E20.
10) What three words would you use to describe Pennsic?
feels like home
So you always wanted to be a rock star, huh?
(yoinked from otesmacke , among others)
1 - Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Random quotations: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

If you want to do this again, you'll hit refresh to generate new quotes, because clicking the quotes link again will just give you the same quotes over and over again.

3 - Go to flickr's "explore the last seven days" http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Put it all together, that's your debut album.
For those who enjoy this kind of thing. )
Rules: Post five things you've done that you believe nobody else on your F-list has done. Indulge in remorse if someone calls you out on a listed item.
1. Gave the guitarist from Black Label Society and the movie Rock Star a bloody nose.
2. Been paid $20 to assault a member of the WWE. ($20 were courtesy of the poor man with the bloody nose in item 1.)
3. Been babysat by a serial killer.
4. Arranged to smuggle a $10,000 device into a middle-eastern country for the purpose of showing a "forbidden" play. (I had to specify "arranged to smuggle" because one of the other people that helped with the airing of "Nathan the Wise" in Qatar is on this f-list. In other news, the play "Nathan the Wise" is illegal to perform or posess recorded copies of in Qatar.)
5. Performed with the Bolshoi. (I was 8 years old. It was the Nutcracker. So, nowhere near as fabulous, yet just as fabulous as it sounds. This was back when Solviet treasures defected to the US from time to time. Sadly I never got to meet Baryshnikov.)

This feels accurate to me, even though I only see 2:11 AM on weekends anymore.

I responded to this Meme of [livejournal.com profile] eithni's a while ago, and now I'm posting it, because I said I would:

Leave me a comment and I'll answer the following questions:
1. Why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something.
3. Something I like about you.
4. A memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
In return, post this in your blog.
