LJ Interests meme results



  1. being an expatriot:
    Well, I am an expatriot. So I guess interest is a bit of a misnomer. I have lived in one country for most of my adult life and in another before I moved there. I have very little connection to my home country, and at times it can be tough. For example, when people have a go about foreigners around me, it's easy to feel rejected. And it really doesn't help if well-meaning people say that 'you don't count'. Don't I? On the whole I am happy to stand behind expatriot identity, but I do sometimes envy those who have only ever lived in one place. I wonder what it feels like to have a home like that.
  2. cj cherryh:
    pellegrina introduced me to C.J. Cherryh's science-fiction novels. I have only read the Chanur books so far, which are full of fabulous aliens and edge-of-your-seat type action. The thing that really gets me though is how she handles questions of language and communication: for example the mahendo'sat's splendid pidgin. Number one fine author!
  3. csi: miami:
    I have like cop shows from ever since I was old enough for my mother not to chaase me out of the room when she sat down to watch them. CSI wasn't something I really knew about, but while watching Dark Angel one night, the_marquis and I got drawn into watching the first episode of CSI: Miami. That was enough to get me hooked. Courtesy of H I now watch all CSI and Law and Order derivatives that I can lay my hands on.
  4. dragons:
    *grins* This is an old, old interest. Dragons are fascinating, and they are, of course, terribly misunderstood. Some say that I am a dragon. But I couldn't possibly comment.
  5. folk music:
    Especially grim and haunting tunes. Mostly because I am quite good at singing that sort of music.
  6. hobbits:
    They have the right idea about life: food, rest, having a good time. The smoking bit I can do without. But what I like best about hobbits is that they know how to rise to the occasion if they are pushed.
  7. ma yo-yo:
    Fabulous, fabulous cello-player. Also plays the Mongolian horsehead fiddle. I love cello music, and hearing someone combine my favourite instrument with different styles of music is just fantastic. And Mr Ma does just that. (Whether you call him Ma Yo-Yo or Yo-Yo Ma.)
  8. patrick o'brian:
    Delightful writing style, ships, delightful characters, a bit of history. Reading his Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin stories combines many of my other interests and is thoroughly enjoyable to boot.
  9. role-playing:
    When I discovered role-playing I was thoroughly delighted. It turns out I wasn't the only person who thought pretending to be someone else and making up stories about them is a great pastime. Especially with a bunch of like-minded people. Not only that - there are whole loads of systems to role-play with. I love it. It's creative and social and fun and exciting and collaborative and...and... and...
  10. the borribles:
    It's all Fencer's fault. She introduced me to these odd stories set in a dirty, dangerous London where neglected children grow pointy ears and form the own almost savage tribes. She also invented Fencer and Pencil with me about whom I have written my longest fanfic to date. In German.

CSI, yay! I've only just got into it, but am loving every mintue I can get my grubby hands on *g* I'll be getting the DVD's out of Uni library, once I'm back, methinks!

Have you started watching CSI in the middle or at the beginning? I noticed that you're not keen on Sophia and that you are a Sara/Grissom shipper. I don't really do the ships-thing as such myself, but there is some interesting Sara/Grissom stuff in earlier seasons. Nuff said. ;-)

Well, I've just been watching what's been on Living and Five, to be honest! I think it's all pretty early.

I don't like Sophia because she's distracting Grissom from the awesomeness of Sara *g* I ship anything that moves, frankly ;-)

I watched Burden of Proof this evening and almost died from the angst-fest, tee hee!
