Hat tip to [ profile] new_iconoclast (who, unlike me, knows how to use a slide rule): Leave a comment and I will pick three of your interests and three of your icons I would like you to explain. Post them in your journal and allow others to comment and request the same.

I mememe'd at Ike, who pointed out that it wasn't terribly fair as I only have eight interests listed :) But he managed.

2-17-05: The day of a "historic" flame war in [ profile] hip_domestics that is actually a good chunk of what led to me being one of the community mods. This interest is mostly included as a joke, and is currently only shared by one other person and a snark community that also came out of the same flame war.

mustard: The above-mentioned flame war came about because one person requested recipes that included mustard. About two hours later, someone else (and it's still unsure whether they were trolling or not) requested any recipe that did not include mustard. Several people said "Um....seriously? Get a damn cookbook, or even, gasp, leave out the mustard" and it was on. Yes, the whole thing was pretty dumb. That's why the whole "mustard" thing turned into a huge joke. For the first year I knew [ profile] clockworktomato, every package I sent her included a jar or bottle of a new kind of flavored mustard.

walking: Walking got added to the list at the beginning of 2006, when I started doing so regularly and then started training for the 3-Day. It's still my favorite form of exercise and the only one that doesn't feel like work to me.


Glomps for Everyone: [ profile] elsrik pulled this one out for me. It's from a Sinfest comic, and he pointed it out to me because every time [ profile] clockworktomato or I log on, we *glomp* at each other. I'm not actually sure where the *glomp* thing came from, but a glomp is one of those big tackle-y hugs like you give your best friend when you haven't seen them in a while.

crickets: [ profile] elsrik made this one too :) There was a craigslist ad...I don't think I bookmarked it, and I don't know that CL would have it on their site anymore, it was a good long time ago... No! Here it is! The end line - "If found, contact me unless you are angry and covered in crickets" - cracked me up, and it was something that I could picture G'kar, my favorite Babylon 5 character, saying with a very deadpan look on his face. Hence the combination of G'kar and "unless you are angry and covered in crickets". :)

dig this/cleolinda: [ profile] cleolinda does a series of what she calls "Movies in Fifteen Minutes">. They're hysterical, very short scriptlike parodies (can be found at [ profile] m15m, check out the memories/tags). This one happens to be from the "Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen Minutes", pointing out that Christine seems to be getting way more into the final performance than her fiance and the managers of the opera company want her to. It was a tossup between that one and one with the same picture reading "Collapsible bodice!" but I thought that "I kinda dig this" was a little more universally usable :)
