|05:50 pm - Oh, here I am. . .|
Taken from danicia:
Tell the listening audience a memory of me. When you first met me, when I did something stupid, ect. And then post the query to *your* Journal...
If you've never met me (or if you can't think of anything interesting)... make something up. Confuse the issue a bit ;)

I just cannot believe that you and I managed to talk that many beautiful women into a single tent. Who would have thought our stamina could be that good?
Well, we're going to have to try to break our record at Wellspring, you know. I think we can do it again, and we'd better give it our best shot this year, since we ain't getting any younger!
I'll bring the shoehorn.
I'll volunteer to bounce the non-hotties out :-p I'll lay my smack down.
Hmm. Well, when I was getting ready to come to my first PSA meeting the girl who I contacted/met/chatted with beforehand had a lot to say about how good-looking you are.
As for something funny ... At your dedicant's oath at Summerland 2002 I thought you were pledging yourself to Jesus ... at first I was kind of horrified (that one would do that in the middle of a pagan rite? I'm not actually sure- I think I was worried ppl'd make fun of you :-p) ... I was going to ask you about it, but I decided that it must be personal and that you wouldn't appreciate me getting into your business.
Yes, the things that go through my mind.
Haha. Which girl would that be? :)
One of my biggest annoyances are people who make fun of other people for what they do in ritual, actually. Especially offerings and oaths.
What you offer or swear to your deities is between you and them. Really, observers of the rite have no business getting involved in that (unless someone is involking, say Cthulhu, at which point it might be smart if someone stepped in and stopped 'em).
If I want to offer a hot dog, I get to offer a hot dog. If you want to offer a diamond ring, you can offer a diamond ring. End of story.
You know, though: there's this whole school of thought that thinks that Esus is actually Jesus. I mean, look at the names! Look at the beards! Look at the fact that they have big trees or crosses! Obviously, they must be the same deity! The Celts were really Christians in disguise!

I thought that the Christians were Druids in disguise . . .
Of course they are. See, there's a long, unbroken line of Druids that goes back to Merlyn's first incarnation back in the Paleolithic, and in that incarnation he was called "Jesus, Sr." When he was reincarnated as Jesus the second time, he dropped the "Jr." part in favour of the more humble "Christ". He re-taught the Druids everything they knew, but he forgot to teach them how to write, so they promptly forgot everything after he was crucified.
When he came back as Merlyn, he was so pissed that he made Arthur convert to Christianity to spite the stupid Pagans.
Yep. That's exactly how it happened.
Somehow, some way, I was almost certain it was her.
Haha. Good :) It was true. Or, at least, when I'm telling it it is. . . :)
Ah, well do I recall...
It was the ritual at Dragonfest, way way back when I was Wiccan and knew no better. A ritual designed to introduce the concept of Chaos to 250 people. You'd chosen to stand in the South, and I heard your comment on how clear the diction was of the woman in the yellow cloak who invoked the Spirit of fire. You actually laughed when the Fool broke the circle... Eris had her in your grip, as most others were scandalized and upset. My voice made you turn around and look down. (Bloody hell you're tall. But then, everyone is when you're only 5 feet...) "Hey there, hot stuff, move those buns so a gal can get a seat."
What did you think to see a real Heyoka? The clothes I wore matched the paint on my face, broad black and white stripes the width of your hand, my medium-long reddish hair standing off the top of my head in two tall pigtails like fireworks fountain cones. My green eyes musta been sparkling as I goosed you to get through the circle. You just smiled widely and grabbed me to do a quick polka around the yellow-cloaked woman. Ah, the perfect foil to my madness. I've no doubt you made a lot of Wiccan enemies that day for daring to have fun in ritual.
(actually, I've never met you in real life, but this ritual did occur in 1990, and I was the Heyoka then. Pissed off a lot of people. Just thought you could appreciate a Chaotic working)
Haha. Reminds me very much of one of my favourite jokes
So the ritual was designed to introduce Chaos, and they got pissy when Chaos showed up?
I hate stuffy people like that. Let me know if they get together again, and I'll show up.
Yeah, pretty much. They just couldn't handle people not acting according to assigned roles and crap. And meet them anytime you want, it's the general Denver Wiccan Community. And people wonder why I'm now Wiccan anymore. It was a fun ritual, though. We got in character by telling silly jokes and eating a can of chocolate frosting about a half-hour before. All the wuarters were invoked seriously, then the Fool, the Heyoka, the two-spirit, and the jester broke in... Muahahaha....
See, I'm dangerous in an anerisian ritual like that. I honour Eris in *every* ritual in some way.
Otherwise, She steps on me. And those stiletto heels *hurt*!
wuarters? see, I can't even write seriously about it. Man, they'd have had a stroke if you'd invoked Eris... I got so tired of the wussies... "Ooo, chaos bad... Ooo, Kali-ma dark and bad... Oooo, Morrigan dark, dangerous and bad..." Hmmm, what happened to "we are all facets of the Goddess"? Only the goddesses you can deal with, right? Argh.
"All I ever need to know about Kali, I learned in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."

I remember the time when I picked you up at the airport.... went and parked the car in central parking and everything, so I could be there near the baggage area with the sign that said, "Tall Sexy Druid of Three Cranes, your party is waiting." You were so surprised that I actually showed up in a short short skirt, see through blouse, and high boots. Ha-ha... and that long red hair!
Oh yeah. That hasn't happened yet. I've GOT to stop reading ahead!
Tisk, tisk :) We'll see how surprised I am. :) You might have to go above and beyond in order to truly surprise me :) Maybe have Kirk show up with you in the same outfit?

Oh, I'm sure he'd love that, but I don't think Steve would let him. LOL. We'll see....

First thing that comes to mind...
Well, I've never actually met you before. But I suggest that the first time we meet should be on a low gravity ultra-bowling alley on the moon at the beginning of a nuclear war. At least it would be memorable.

Re: First thing that comes to mind...
That will work for me. :) After all, Bowling Alleys *are* sacred to our kind. Should anyone bother to try to blow up said Bowling Alley during said war, we must be ready, in case they attempt to desecrate it.

Re: First thing that comes to mind...
Of course, you never know when someone may try to invade the moon. It'll be a gallant last stand, for Goddess and bowling alley. I suppose I always expected it to end up like that.
