Meemle: The Friday Five

Meemle. Sounds rather like a fantasy creature, I think, perhaps one that serves some sort of aquatic librarian role: The little silvery-green meemle stuck its head up out of the water, blinking at the sun . . . Really, though, it's that I was tired of writing "yet another meme," so I decided to call it a meemle. Maybe a small one could be Mini-Meme, a la Austin Powers.

Of course, thinking of watery fantasy creatures reminds me of murlocs. I hate murlocs. Rargle-rargle-rargle! I should come up with a song or poem about how much I despise them. World of Warcraft players will understand.

Isn't Friday stream of consciousness a wonderful thing? Right. To the point of this post, then, before I tangent off into why I wish I'd been born someplace where I could claim a British accent. Oh, and if you make a turducken, Tag, I want some.

1. What do you wear to bed?
Nothing comes twixt me and my Calvins. Just my undies. This is not because I am Teh Uber Come-Hither Sexah, but because I have rosacea and I cannot stand to be hot. I do put on a t-shirt and often pajama bottoms if I go stay at someone else's house, though, in case of midnight emergencies and early breakfast appearances. Can't be all nakey for those.

2. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The right. Used to be left. I can adapt a bit: what's most important is that I can sleep on my side, facing out instead of in.

3. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
Annsa the Throw Pillow with Legs counts, right?

4. Blanket/bed hog?
Heck, no. See #1. My husband generally has a plethora of cover because, although I might start out with my appropriate allocation of covers, I generally end up kicking them all off because I get hot in the night. Then I get cold, and try to take them back, which doesn't work very well at times, because he will hog the covers once he gets them, and then I end up with a napkin's worth of cover. I then proceed to do my best Oliver Twist impersonation to pick on him the following morning, saying: "Please, suh, may I have more than just a napkin?"

5. Do you make your bed everyday?
No, because it's very hard to make in our current confined situation. I tell myself that I'll do better once we aren't so cramped. Time will tell if I'm lying, but I think I'm telling the truth. I generally made it up during college, so I have no reason to think I won't revert to neatness when I have room.

Nothing to do with any of that, but I made 'nanner puddin' for the potluck today. The general reaction was "Oh, my God, Katharine . . . " with people taking second and third helpings to stash at their desks for eating later. :) I rule in the kitchen, yo. :D

I have got to say I agree with your sentiments on murlocs - grrr. I am also stealing the meemle for my own use, hehe.

PS Are you on the Southeastern Browncoats Yahoo or Livejournal group/going to the meeting tomorrow? http://www.livejournal.com/community/sebc/ for more info. Also I did get ONE ticket solely through charity for the 23rd, don't suppose you've managed any miracles for you?

Eh? Wot? I just now heard about this from you. I'm sure it'll be great, but I'm not going to Dragon*Con this year. Yes, I know Joss is going to be there. That's actually part of why I'm not going: it's going to be an insane madhouse of people crammed in tighter than sardines, I'm thinking. Also not going because husband wants a break from it. I want to hear a full report, though!

No tix for me, but I'm okay with it! I got to see it once, and can now wait for wide release. Not waiting serenely, mind you, because I really want to see it again, but I'll save the advances for those who haven't yet.

You should go, though! I'm very much pro-you going. You help to publicize the film, and you act as an active ambassador of sorts with the Kaylee costume, etc., and your active efforts in the community. You're working for the film's success, and I totally support you going. :)

I did a little part today by clapping and cheering when the trailer came on before Batman Begins. Unfortunately, I was the only Browncoat in the theater, but that didn't stop me from mildly embarrassing my husband and father-in-law on Father's Day by loudly indicating my enthusiasm. :)

Oh no...wow I can't fathom not going to Dragon Con. This is my 10th anniversary so I wouldn't miss it for the world. It is going to be madness, but I can't not go it'd be like suffocating, lol. Oh there will be mannnnny reports and hopefully lots of video coverage.

Well I'm glad I'm going this time since I'm going to be taking SEBC donations (we're a non-profit organization) there in full Kaylee attire. I'm also glad you approve my going - I gotta go each time and try to meet any new people and get them involved - I'm like a little Firefly cheerleader. Hehe.

Yeah I heard it was on Batman, which I unfortunately just cannot watch, but I'll see it on the big screen soon, probably on Fantastic Four I imagine.

If you ever make it to Seattle we'll definitely do another one, they fucking rule, except I had to get up at like 4 am on Xmas day to get that sucker ready.

Of course, I started drinking at about the same time, so by the time everyone arrived I was waving the oven thermometor and yelling about the spectacle. SOP. ;-)

A friend poured some water into his mouth and gargled.. and it sounded like there was a murloc after me.... (he's a wow player and yes, he knew what he was doing...)

*laughs* That is kind of funny, though. ;) Thank you for sharing the tale!
