|08:28 am - Some pictures|
When I was in middle school and high school, I always had this theory about yearbooks. It seems that one could gauge the total popularity of a person by taking the number of photos they appeared in, and dividing that by the total number of photos in the book.
I always had a very low quotient.
I was reminded of this recently while looking at pictures from two recent festivals: Desert Magic and Trillium.
And again, I have a fairly low quotient. Of course, I'm moving up in the world, it seems, though I suspect that this is because there are fewer pictures. I'm not in any more than I was in high school.
By the way, I don't know what this says about popularity, but they got several names wrong attached to pictures at Trillium. You might check them if you're there, because some people show up wrong :) I'm amused, but it might be good to drop them a line and ask 'em to fix it.

That one picture of Kirk talking about Math and Gwydion...that totally sound like the Mabinogion! Awesome!
I do believe that it is. :)
I never knew I could wrestle quite that well. Or throw rocks for that matter.
Thought you might be particularly amused :)
I was very amused at the Trillium pictures. You are probably in more pictures for DMF, they're just not posted.
I don't think your yearbook theory works 100%. I was somewhat popular; as in I knew many people from each circle and they all liked me. I was one of the few people who could walk through different groups without getting shit. I don't know if that is popularity so much as being nice (and having people afraid of little ole me).
I had friends on the yearbook comity and I got the idea in my head that I hated our school. Sooooo, I went out of my way to beg them to get me off of every "class" mention. Meaning we had the year book, a t-shirt and a mug. The latter had a class list on them but I mysteriously was not listed. In the year book my picture did not appear and my name was not under "not pictured" either. In fact, it is as if I did not exist at all! I think it's actually very neat. :D
Well, nothing works 100%. Even gravity has off days :) But yes, there are things one can do to be removed from a yearbook, you have a point :)
Just this morning I tried to get up and I missed the ground. If gravity always worked, I wouldn't have such an issue, would I? :)
How did I become "Megan of 3 Cranes"? Is there a Megan in 3 Cranes?
There is, but you don't look much alike. At least, not in person. In the photos, perhaps, but definitely not in person :)
I suggest a polite, terse email to remedy the situation :)
Meghan, btw, is ceolnamara
. . . *grins*
I like how Three Cranes is the catch-all. It appears that if they don't know who you are, you're one of us!
Wanna join Three Cranes? We could have an extension just for you!
Your magical name could be "Megan" :)
Ah, an eastern branch of Three Cranes!
You could be our Philadelphia Office. . .
Reminds me of my ex, a funny guy, who liked to say 'Hi, my name's Brent. But my magical name is Dave.'
Yeah, it's amazing how no one ever uses "Joe" as a magical name, but they really like "High Priestess Lady Jell-o of the Black Dark Wolf Night".
Like either one sounds serious, ya know? At least "Joe" would be easier to spell. :)
My dad held that very same opinion; I remember his outrage when my best friend who didn't even go to my high school appeared in more photos than I did. (Granted, she went to prom with a guy with blue hair, so she was rather photo-worthy). She also went to my prom and I didn't. If I cared I'd be kind of grumpy about it.
Yes, another reason I was in so few pictures :) I didn't do *anything* school-related :) One dance, and one dance only in high school.
woot! i managed to not be in any photos. go me.
I'm very peripheral in all the pictures :) But Misty seems to have been somewhat popular. . .
