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 :D
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.
