Memey Goodness
This one is cute, and since I like getting comments and want to resume responses to comments mode, it's a good place to start. From the_marquis.

The meme is called "Dedications to You"

01. Reply with your name and I will write something about you.
02. I will then tell what song/movie reminds me of you.
03. If I were to apply an "o'clock" to you, it would be...
04. I will try to name a single word that best describes you.
05. I'll tell you the most memorable moment I've had with you.
06. I will tell you what animal you remind me of.
07. I'll then tell you something that I've always wondered about you.
08. Put this in your journal.

Weyhey! What a quick response. So where to start?

1. Song/music: hm... probably Bach chorales -- weird chain of association here: basically you sometimes mention mass in your posts, and you mention dj-ing for early music (yay!) and while Bach is not that early it still somehow fits...

2. 11.15pm -- that's when the famous Emperor Birthday Parties at Oxonmoot tend to start, ain't it?

3. Scientific

4. Lincoln AGM... chatting about science papers, while boring our unwilling audience rigid. ;-)

5. German Shepherd

6. Why vetinary science? (Probably an obvious one, but when I first met you I was convinced that you were some sort of computer scientist. Although I can't remember what made me think that. ;-))

Why veterinary science? It interested me: both in the "want to work with animals sense", and because it involved studying both science and its applications. I only work with theoretical animals these days, but I'm still using my veterinary education, and working on important veterinary problems.

Aha! I can understand wanting to study a science and its applications. That said, a lot of my work these days seems very theoretical.

Hi there! It seems like an awful long time since we've met in person, so some of this may be a little outdated! ;-)

1. Neither song or movie with you. It's a TV show! Xena: Warrior Princess.

2. 3.15pm.

3. Determined

4. Trying to catch the mouse in your room in St Hilda's and then taking its corpse to the porter's lodge!

5. Red squirrel

6. Were do you manage to get the energy to do all those sporty things?

Ah! so you have ventured into the dragon's den to be done!

1. The Blues Brothers!

2. 10.30pm

3. Colly! (Which is kind of a cop out, but it sums you up somehow.)

4. The day I became Mrs Marquis.

5. Dolphin!

6. This one's hard. I have probably asked you most things already. How about this: how did you know that I was the person you wanted to marry?

Re. 4) Marchioness, surely?

Whee! Polly! *waves violently*

*waves back* Well, let's see how we can tackle this one then... How to answer for my evil twin? :-o

1. Song - Winds on the Tor. For obvious reasons, what with dancing and all!

2. 12 noon. On the cusp of a nice long afternoon.

3. This one is very hard. There are so many words... I'll use 'flipside' - as in belonging together and complementing each other - even though that describes you primarily for me as opposed to in general.

4. Another toughy. So many moments... How about a fairly recent one: sitting on the memorial in Carlisle after shopping and realising it was 4pm already.

5. Roedeer

6. How you almost always find strength to be there for others and find good things to say about them, even if you are not feeling great yourself.

Go on then, I'll have a go. - Neuromancer.
PS Er, assuming you know who I am IRL....

I know who you are IRL. Polly's webname for you is rather appropriate, after all. :-) So let's see.

1. Song - The Mewlips Song. It was a memorable performance - rubbergloves (I think it was) and all!

2. 8.00am - ready to go!

3. Sparkling

4. Oddly enough, an online moment. You sent a very encouraging comment to me after my first paper was rejected.

5. Border collie - alert, inquisitive, hardworking and capable of having a good time!

6. Where you got the strength to shift from one academic discipline to another.
