Really?? Gee I must say I'm consistently surprised if not amazed at how much people abroad like Australia. I just went to Paris and visited a couple of friends there, and they are visibly just in love with Sydney and can't wait to go back. I felt like saying, and did say, but you live in PARIS! Personally I can't wait to leave here, haha, oh well maybe the grass is just greener on the other side. If I knew you were going to Sydney I could have given you all the INTPish places to go! (oh wait you're INFJ now aren't you hah).
:-) Thank you. The images... I think they're shields against what's not like them. Dreams stolen from heaven to protect me from earth; I enshroud myself in them out of of necessity, not for self-expression's sake.
Well, thank you very much. I chose it with care. If ever there was a motto for all of INTPdom, I think that little gem might be a strong contender.
To my great shame, I haven't yet read any of his non-sci-fi stuff, although given how much I do enjoy his M. Banks work, I'm sure it's only a matter of time until I get around his Banks work. Any particular recommendations as to which book I should start with?
When I lived with a roommate I hated for a year I used to not go home until I absolutely had to. Instead I would hide in the public library or a local coffee shop. Here, I'll make a mental sanctuary for you in my head. There now I'll give it to you and you can carry it around in your head!
Thank you so very much. It feels awesome to be appreciated ;___; In school people used to go "meh" at everything I did, or just plain silent. I wonder if it was a jealousy thing... Too bad I used to think that no one could be jealous of me and so I believed I was bad at everything I did... Weird life, weird times.
Yay for free trips to places! I need a Free-Trips-To-Cool-Places Fairy (or FTTCP Fairy for short) to bless me with it's plane ticket goodness....where the heck do I find one of those? I'll keep my eyes open.
i see it is the same for choosing movies as it is writing them
fitting a brutal and ridiculous rape scene singing 'Like a Virgin' is unsuprisingly difficult to put into an even vaguely intelligent film...and i want to make something emotionally and mentally profound, provocative and weird, but not weird for the sake of weird....hmm...
It's not really a family name, he is an ESFP kid and knows all the popular names of the era and what's cool/trendy (conservative/old-style names seem to be in vogue again over here), and he does listen to people when it's a topic of interest... I think he overheard my sister once mentioning she liked the name.
