1. Cancer survivor or Gert Frobe: which would piss off your mother more?

I think they're one and the same, as far as she is concerned. Hair-wise, that is.

2. How did you meet your husband?

I sent him email in response to something he wrote on soc.singles in December '91. In February '92, we met in person for the first time. After we spent the day together, we went back to my place and he proceeded to sing me "Nobody's Moggy Land." After that I was too stunned to resist.

3. Which of your Cassandra-like predictions did you wish people had paid attetion to?

"Careful With That Axe, Clytaemnestra"

I'm not sure how to answer this without being either meaninglessly vague or too detailed, but there were two predictions in particular that hurt a lot when they came true because I ended up losing friends. In one case my friends were so hurt by the situation that [my interpretation of their behavior] they withdrew from socializing with people who reminded them in any way of the situation. In another case someone acted very hurtfully in a way that I thought was a mistake that could be rectified, and I couldn't stop bugging them to fix the mistake, so they stopped communicating with me.

Thinking on it, those had something in common other than my losing friends. [/cryptic]

4. What was special about your very first cat?

She came with four toy surprises inside.

5. Who are your writing influences/heroes/inspirations?

Gah. There are dozens. Besides the ones mentioned in my interests list: Douglas Adams, Alfred Bester, Carol Emshwiller, James Joyce, Madeleine L'Engle, Neal Stephenson, Mark Strand, Kurt Vonnegut

"Four toy surprises." Huh.

Can I ask questions? I will anyway, so it's not a request for permission.

1. Your thoughts on l33t 5p34K?

2. You can be one historical person, on one day in their life. Who do you choose, when, and why?

3. Why "Firecat"? (someone else may have asked, if so I apologize for the duplication.)

4. What is the first thing you remember?

5. What do you want to be remembered for?

Your questions after my nap. :-)

1. Tell me about your life with dogs.
2. You mentioned some fandoms that had turned into "more fannish than thou" contests. Have you known any fandoms that didn't?
3. What's one of your favorite poems? (Written by you or someone else.)
4. Have you ever read Susan Stinson?
5. What is "instant muse" exactly, and does it work for you?

I can understand being stunned by the singing; I'm still getting over his exposing his inner Dolly Parton the other night.

It wasn't just the singing, it was also the lyrics.

Hee hee hee. He told me about this. But "stunned" wasn't the word he used. I think I'd have remembered that.
