Because yesimthegirl is asking for fun and I have some wacky memories of her...
 
If you comment on this post:

1. I’ll respond with something random about you.
2. I’ll challenge you to try something.
3. I’ll pick a colour that I associate with you.
4. I’ll tell you something I like about you.
5. I’ll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I’ll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I’ll ask you something I’ve always wanted to ask you.
8. If I do this for you, it would be appreciated if you posted this on yours.

ETA: I'll have to do this later tonight, as I'm expecting company for dinner any minute.

I probably won't put this up in my journal, but it would be funny to see how you'd answer this for me.

I think it would be funny to see what your answers are for me, too. That's fine if you don't put it in your LJ, but you better answer in my comments!

Dr. Mellow
1. I think it's interesting that you are so susceptible to hypnosis.
2. Learn to converse with me in French (or Spanish, for that matter). And that means knowing more than just how to say, "Je suis Batman" or "pamplemousse"!
3. Well, chartreuse, of course. No, I have to go with black on this one--black Pathfinder, black truck, black motorcycle, plus, you used to wear black so often that people assumed you were a priest. Uh, and your heroes are Batman and Johnny Cash. Coincidence? I think not.
4. You're adventurous when it comes to experiencing new things (activities, cuisine, etc.). Plus, you can abandon self-consciousness and attempt unfamiliar activities in front of an audience. These two attributes work well in tandem.
5. That's a tough one. I think it was as a test-grader at a fraternity pledge meeting in college. You had crazy hair (much like now) and I was wondering why you weren't wearing shoes. I have a very vague recollection of you at the bowling alley with a pitcher of Ice House in your hand, but I might be making that up. My clearest early memory of any interaction between us is probably of you mixing me a Holiday Special at a Brady Bunch House Christmas party.
6. Animal? Good grief. An ant? An elephant? You're very methodical and you make weird noises.
7. What is your first clear memory of me? I can't wait to see the answer to this one.

1. Something random: One day, I'd like to hear you perform a classical guitar piece. As a beginning guitar student, I admire the diligence and dexterity it takes to become musically proficient in that regard.
2. Something to try: Bacon! No, I'm kidding. Have you ever made your own cannolis? (Do you and A. even like cannolis?) Between whether or not to include wine in the pastry dough, whether the filling should be ricotta or cream-based, and whether one should incorporate chocolate, cherries (or pistaschio or green coconut, for that matter), I have been reluctant to even start down the cannoli road. Let's develop an amazingly awesome, end-all-debate cannoli recipe. That should be a formidable challenge.
3. Colour: I'm excited about answering this question for you, because it's so obvious to me: Orangey-yellow. It's because you both exude and are attracted to warmth and light. I remember the first time you came over to our house and while we were sitting in the living room (you on the sofa), you asked us each whether we would like to live on a planet where it was eternally day, or eternally night (or something to that effect). DrMellow instantly said "night" and I was on the fence, though I eventually went with "night", reasoning that I sunburn so badly. However, that answer has bugged me ever since. I know I would find it terribly depressing not to feel the warmth and energy of sunlight on my skin--to be deprived of that joy; as much as I love the moon, I think I would shrivel and die in the cool world of perpetual "darkness".
4. Something I like about you: I really enjoy your enthusiasm for experimental cooking. It's infectious. It's delicious. It's indicative of an adventurous spirit. It doesn't get any better than that!
5. This has got to be the best and funniest first memory of anyone I can think of. I'll paraphrase:

G: Will, Meredith. Meredith, Will.
M: Hi.
W: Hi. [flustered] Uh... *gestures at apartment*
G & M: OK! So you guys go have a nice dinner and we'll mop up the flood!

Priceless.

6. Animal: Well, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention "llama", though that association has been cultivated by familiarity with your user icon and your website. So I'm going to say "owl" on this one. You are both wise, measured in your responses, and keenly aware of your surroundings. An enviable trait combination.
7. Something I'd like to know: As a science-y person, I would be interested to know--since you do wear glasses--what type of visual perception you experience and how (if so) that has changed with time.
8. And I'm very curious to see how you would answer these questions for me!

We love cannolis! Ooh, let's do this. But first we have to try making florentines.

As for the bacon, you're too late. He loves it. BLTs for dinner last night, in fact. He won't eat chicken, but pork products are all good.

The pig is a truly magical animal.

I have never tried to make florentines, either. I'm up for any sort of Italian pastry/dessert-making adventure. Bring it on!
