Back at you...
a) Tell you why I friended you. Because you friended me first. You were the first person I hadn't met in person (or at least that I didn't realize I had met in person) who friended me and it made me feel really happy.

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc. String! You like crafts!!! Hooray for string obsessions!

c) Tell you something I like about you. I like the way you think about being a parent and that it is obviously working: you have one cool kid.

d) Tell you a memory I have of you. I remember you at Amy and Joy's most recent wedding pitching in and doing all those essential things that good friends do, and doing it with grace. (I like that about you, too!)

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you: Why did you move? Is there a family issue?

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list: I like the one of you in Venice (I think) because you look so joyful.

xoxo Janet

Re: Back at you...
Nothing like spending Sunday morning catching up on ancient comments that I should have answered months ago! :D

To answer e) (and you've probably figured out a lot of this by now), but Kevin and I had been separated (not legally, but by mutual agreement) since March of 2004. We stayed living in the same house all that time for various reasons, both financial and because it meant both of us had maximum time with Connor. Then, last year, I decided it was time to do something with my life, and I decided I wanted to go back to school. I could have stayed in San Ramon and gone to Cal State East Bay, but I felt it was time to move out on my own. Plus, I felt like Sonoma State was a better school for what I wanted to do. So, that's what led to Connor and I moving out. Obviously, now I feel like it was one of the best decisions I ever made. :)

Re: Back at you...
Thanks! That was pretty much what I figured, eventually. Congratulations on so many good changes for you!!!

Ahh! Hooray!
I'm getting the vibe now. Apparently my psychic powers are text-dependent! Sure... I'd love to tell you the answers:

a) Tell you why I friended you. Well, I can't, in the LJ sense, but I wanted to be your friend because of your cheery disposition and I bookmarked your blog because I find your insights useful and charming, which is as close to answering the question as possible under the unusual circumstances.

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc. I think of you as The Poet most of the time, and the Origami Crane Queen just for different.

c) Tell you something I like about you. Your ability to wrestle language into submission without breaking a sweat.

d) Tell you a memory I have of you. I remember how cool and composed and friendly you were on your office tour just before you started with Donn. I thought: there goes one capable person! (I think that tour thing is the hardest part of the whole new job process!!!!)

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you How's your love life these days?

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list Um, not entirely relevant here, but I like the quote on your blog: "A total neat freak and maybe just a little evil..."

g) In return, you need to post this on your own journal. I suppose this is your chance to cross the streams between blogspot and LJ...

Fair enough
a) Tell you why I friended you. Because you're my friend! Plus, you're smart and funny.

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc. Harry Potter! And good food.

c) Tell you something I like about you. You are very grounded, rooted in the essentials of life. This is unusual enough, but you are also, as a result, compassionate and kind, which is rare and precious.

d) Tell you a memory I have of you. I remember the first time I had dinner with you and Joy without Brent. We had Chinese food and you two were talking about how you named the crabs that were dinner. You protested the practice, but Joy said she named them after characters you didn't like, like Snape. It made me appreciate the playfulness of your relationship.

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you: So, why ordained ministry?

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list: I always think of the meerkat one as being particularly you-- attentive and curious and cute (although I also think of meerkats as conspiracy theorists and you're not paranoid enough to be one of those...)

You asked for it...
a) Tell you why I friended you. Because I love you dearly. Duh. That and you write funny (if rare) posts.

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc. Harry Potter. The need to save the environment and thereby the world.

c) Tell you something I like about you. That saving the world thing. Also your wicked sense of humor.

d) Tell you a memory I have of you. Every time you are reunitied with Mook, your face just lights up. The look says: there's home.

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you This is going to sound like such a vague question that it makes no sense, but: how did you become who you are? You seem to have gone through a lot on the journey and yet you are so clearly and totally yourself that it seems like it was inevitable. How'd you manage that?

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list: You almost always use the witchy one, which gets at your playful and magical and slightly evil nature. Perfect for you!

Re: You asked for it...
how did you become who you are?

That's some question. I just woke up one day, and there I was, all clearly and totally myself, I guess. Seriously, I have no idea how to answer that question. Buy me a few beers one of these days and I'll take a stab at it, though.
