Defining oneself by material objects.

So, say you were meeting a new person--blind date, new friend, who knows. And you wanted them to have some idea of what kind of person you are, and who you are. But you can't actually tell them in so many words. Instead, you have to give them a box, with a dozen things in it for them to look at/read/listen to/taste/whatever. "What would you put in the box? And a copy of your journal or a link to your LJ would be the same thing as just telling them directly, yourself, so that's not allowed.

  1. mini-slugger (small Louisville Slugger bat. Pure wood. Very sexy.)

  2. A Simon (lead geek guitarist for the famous rock band, Alvin and the Chipmunks) plush doll.

  3. Clarissa by Samuel Richardson for a friend or The Prince by Machiavelli for a blind date (although I would certainly expect him to have his own copy if he expects me to respect him).

  4. I don't know if this counts as words (like the aforementioned books don't!), but my Palm Pilot. Without it, you cannot fathom me. Although with dated entries that read simply "Breathe", I might be equally hard to fathom either way, but at least with the Palm, you can play games after you give up trying to comprehend.

  5. Sweeney Todd book, soundtrack or movie, it's all the same. Sweeney Todd forms the foundation of my definition of honor. Fear, people.

  6. A small, pretty plant. I may not be greatest plant caretaker, but I can and do keep one around. (the current one plant is a peace lily)

  7. James Bond. I'm not sure what I'd choose, maybe the Sean Connery Bond action figure with Baretta, thank you very much, it may be a ladies gun, but I've never missed with it yet, or possibly You Only Live Twice the book please. Roald Dahl may go on as much as he likes about how it's moody and the amnesia was unnecessary, blah, blah, whatever. It's a fabulous book, and Roald Dahl's script, frankly, sucks. I'm so glad I got to say that. It's probably the only thing he ever wrote that sucked, but it was horrible.

  8. Hush puppies, the ultimate comfort food. Preferably there would be some way to keep them hot and delicious

  9. An analog watch. Because dials are cool. So is time. And punctuality rocks my world.

  10. A black ball point, pink gel, or a pink or purple Le Pen Micro Fine Point Marker. I'm not hugely picky about...yes I am. My pen of choice is the Le Pen. If I have to back off, I'll use ball point, but I won't be happy about it and I still won't use blue ink.

  11. My pat the bunny christmas ornament. 1) it's Pat the Bunny! I really shouldn't have to say anymore, but 2) it's soft and cuddly. I rub my thumb over it for serenity when I'm agitated.

  12. A candy bowl. Because it's just manners.

  • Wouldn't it be nice

    Hitting someone over the head actually did knock sense into their brains?

  • Welcome to another whiny Wednesday!

    Feel free to post your whines here. If you want, you can post them anominously.


    Slow down. Some of us can't keep up and I can't keep double and triple-booking my time! On a totally unrelated note, my time machine has burnt out…
