Yet another meme...

Shamelessly snarfed from gridlore....

1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?

When I do use one, it says:
Lynn Gold          "net.fogey"                                figmo@rahul.net
 Contract Technical Writer (weekdays)                             <-- day job
 News Anchor, KLIV-AM (weekends)                               <-- second job
 Singer, Songwriter, and Punster at Large     <-- even when they don't pay me

2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven't graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?

My high school didn't do captions. Each senior got their own page. There were only 32 of us.

3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?


I wanted "FIGMO" but it was already taken, and "FIGMO" followed by a digit got rejected by the DMV. Somehow the DMV parses "FIGMO N" (as in "the Nth one") as "FIGMON," so I'm "safe."

4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?

I once got a stuffed mouse with a heart that said "I love you" from a two-timing boyfriend. Yuck.

5. What would you like your epitaph to be?

I'd rather be here than in New Jersey.

Baaaa! (Flap Flap Flap...)

You are one of the few out there whose wings are
truly ANGELIC. Selfless, powerful, and
divine, you are one blessed with a certain
cosmic grace. You are unequalled in
peacefulness, love, and beauty. As a Being of
Light your wings are massive and a soft white
or silver. Countless feathers grace them and
radiate the light within you for all the world
to see. You are a defender, protector, and
caretaker. Comforter of the weak and forgiver
of the wrong, chances are you are taken
advantage of once in awhile, maybe quite often.
But your innocence and wisdom sees the good in
everyone and so this mistreatment does not make
you colder. Merciful to the extreme, you will
try to help misguided souls find themselves and
peace. However not all Angelics allow
themselves to be gotten the better of - the
Seraphim for example will be driven to fighting
for the sake of Justice and protection of those
less powerful. Congratulations - and don't ever
change - the world needs more people like you.

So much for sleep

My alarm goes off in three minutes. I worked from 9am-5pm at the radio station, and I go back to work midnight-8am. I am pondering such weighty decisions as "Which kind of coffee do I want to brew up a pot of?" I am going to need coffee -- strong coffee -- to make it through this shift.

I really ought to stop reading con reports

It rarely fails to happen:

1. I go to a con.
2. I feel good for having gone to the con and having had a good time.
3. I read the con reports, see myself totally absent, and get really depressed.

This continuously amazes me, given that I've done some things over the years I thought were highly conspicuous. I once coordinated the smuggling of a sousaphone into OVFF. I have run cons. I have done concerts complete with costume changes and choreography. I've tried to make a sanitary napkin with wings fly while on stage. I've brought an insufferably cute dog to cons.

This time even the dog didn't get mentioned.
