A. list five habits/quirks/facts about yourself
B. tag five people to do the same

One: to earn money in college I was an art model in the same department and for the same teachers and with the same students I took classes with. It was a wonderful experience and, yeah, there are bronzes and oils of me out there somewhere. I have a couple of the pastels from teachers.

Two: I talk with my hands, people imply that I must have Italian in me but, sadly, no...I'm English, Welsh and German.

Three: I find hetero love stories BOR...ING, I can only read gay now and only then if they're NOT really just hetero love stories with two guys. I probably own every gay teen coming-of-age story Barnes&Noble sells. Yeah, that's right, I like 'em young which is probably more a quirk then a fact realizing that gay teen coming-of-age stories at B&N don't have much sex.
As a side note: Lauren collects Shonen Ai which means boy love and are boy with boy manga stories...the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.

Four: I have a very easy way of doing the grocery shopping list which makes it so Lauren and I can do all of it...planning the week's meal's, shopping and putting everything away in less then two hours and only once a week. I DO NOT like grocery shopping.

Five: I've come close, on more then one occasion, to leaving this fandom because of Ethan Gold, aka 'the fiddler'. I've a lot of trouble understanding the nearly universal hate, especially as expressed by people I otherwise respect, of him and have become very protective of him. Realizing how completely polar I am in how I see him has made me question if I really belong here. And yet.



I will tag
galesweetie, seanmegansean, adrtylilsecret, fansee, and lastglances. Come play.

I've always liked to say people we mustn't forget our own crazy days. Sadly, but many people tend to do just that - while forgetting their own mistakes from youth, they judge the young persons too rigorously, and the understanding and compassion are unknown to them.

Well, here is an idea. You could write a B/J story then. You know a lot about these things, so you could use your own experiences as an art student as well as a model, interweave life and imagination together, and create a fantastic story in the end.

You know what I think the problem may be? some are just too young to know. there are some very young people in this fandom and they can be the most judgmental, never having 'been there, done that'.

I think your idea is very interesting. Please elaborate a little though, give me a little more detail if you wouldn't mind. When you say, for instance, 'a B/J story then' I'm not sure what 'then' you mean.

Or I could write a story as a model watching Ethan and Justin together, everyone wants to believe their relationship was for-shit but I don't.

Please, though, tell me a little more what you think.

Give me some time, please. This week I'm at my Sis and she uses her computer for TV. I'm planning to stay three more days. We can hear each other during the weekend, all right?

hey, don't think I've forgotten, harka. the weekend has come and gone and then some. I would like your idea when you have the time...just a little reminder.

No, I haven't forgotten. The problem is I cannot write anything, especially if this something is a presentation of an idea, just in a few words. I need to write a "novel" if I want to be happy. Also, I've been occupied with acceptance tests these days. I decided to take a course in English; that one which gives you a certificate.

I will write down a scenario, but I have to warn you that the idea doesn't promise a comedy .

This Friday we have a day off, because of the National Day. I'll start writing it then and send it to you via mail.

when you get the time, no hurry, just wanted to make sure you hadn't forgotten. And really, I don't much do comedy so, also not a problem. How is the English class? I've been reading a couple of books about English, its history, its usage. I guess it really is a fairly strange language. I've notice with non-English writers on lj that it's the verbs that seem particularly troublesome. When will you have your certificate?

When will you have your certificate?

Oh, not so fast, dear! The classes start in November and end in June next year.

According to tests, I don't have problems with writing and reading (well, not so much), but grammar and speaking are critical. That is the reason I chose to attend lower level instead of higher.

Grammar (and spelling) has always been a problem for me, that's why I'm so fortunate to have a beta like shadownyc. You should great in the class especially since, by November, you'll have so much more exposure to English just from being on lj.

I haven't yet, I've been migraining all week but will take some time tomorrow. I need to get this one story I'm nearly 80% done with before I think about any other. Trust me, I will get to you soon.
