I don't do a lot of memes, but... Well, I need a break from my database assignment anyway. When it's just an example, they usually let us choose the names and companies and whatever other sample data we need to input, and more than once now I've inadvertently assigned Jeeves to be the president of Baby The Stars Shine Bright, a Japanese Lolita clothing line. While I have no problem with the idea of sticking Bertie in Elegant Gothic Aristocrat, I think Jeeves would beg to differ. Strenuously. Actually, come to think of it, I'm pretty sure that company only makes Sweet Lolita styles, and even I agree that's a horrifying mental image. Anyway, yes. Meme.

1. My friends all call me a werewolf because I'm allergic to most sterling silver (which is supposed to be hypoallergenic). I have a couple of silver chains and a handful of earrings that I can wear, but most of it will have me yanking it off pretty quickly. Silver is my favorite, though, so I keep trying to wear it anyway. I'm either entirely too optimistic or just none too bright.

2. My father is finishing up a book on the occult in film, so the house is liberally strewn with Satanist movies, books with titles like "Men, Women, and Chainsaws," and transcripts of his interviews with people like the High Priestess of the Temple of Set. I sincerely wish that one of those door-to-door Jehovah's witnesses would come by and ask to be invited in.

3. I like to have The Muppet Show on as background noise whenever I'm cooking. I strongly suspect that this has something to do with taking comfort in the knowledge that no matter how badly it turns out, the Swedish Chef did worse. (Also, my favorite Pigs in Space is the one where the universe is ending and the crew can't decide whether to stay and find out the meaning of life or go get dinner. XD)

4. I absolutely adore city lights at night. I made two of my friends spend the entire day hanging around the special observation deck of Tokyo Tower because I wanted to wait until it got dark enough to see the lights sprawling out below us.

5. I have terrible wanderlust. Walking, driving, subway, just so long as I'm going somewhere (or going nowhere, for that matter).

6. One of my earliest memories is of my parents taking my sister and me to see Cats - Rum Tum Tugger was prowling the aisles killing time until he had to go backstage, and he stopped and let us scratch his ears. XD It makes me sort of sad when people knock Cats.

7. I've been spoon-fed really fantastic chocolate mousse by a flirtatious waiter in a restaurant in Paris. Some days life is very, very good.
