They're Only Words!

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

My words came from 45cats.


I'm not much of a photographer but I make up for it with quantity. It's why I love digital photography, I don't have to spend a lot of money to find out my pictures suck. Plus I can take them into an editor and attempt to make them less sucky.

For his birthday in 2007, pilgham requested an e-frame. He reciprocated by getting me one for Christmas the same year. It sat around until October when I finally got around to loading it. It has 800+ pictures on it and sits on my desk at the office swapping the pictures every five minutes.

Now, while I was somewhat picky about what I loaded, not all the photos are gems. Far from it. There are random city scapes and cutesy-wootsies which I enjoy but when a picture comes up of people I'm often taken back to that moment. I have some of my folks vacation snaps from before I was born on there, too. It's nice to see my parents again, young and vital.

On the other hand, family dinners with the in-laws, the only way to tell the years apart is the faces getting older

I moved to the Chicago area from southern California in 1970. I was excited to move to the snow. I arrived in December and my evil mother signed me up for school that very afternoon. By the end of the month I was ready to go home.

I still feel the same way. I'm not too sure where "home" is now but as long as I can convince pilgham to move, I'm willing to give elsewhere a shot. Elsewhere being a smaller city in a more moderate climate, probably a university town for the cultural advantages.

Resourceful is what other people are. My forte is having a plan, whether I adhere to it or not, and being able to incorporate new information into the plan.

Hmmm... Phoo! Gah! -- Is that how you spell it?

Hmmm, not sure what was meant here but that's OK because I've been going off topic anyways.

I <3 DVDs. I'd probably like BluRay, as well, but I haven't watched enough to get hooked. I got into Asian cinema about the time we got our first DVD player and without the DVD player it wouldn't have happened. Remember VHS? One frame could only have one language subtitle, or possibly two in extreme cases. For a different language sub, a different tape was needed. Some of my first Hong Kong DVDs had nine languages for the subs. Not to mention multiple audio language on the disks so non-purists can also have cake.

I've been going to the same non-BB video store for about 15 years. Obviously, when I started going there, it was all VHS. They still have some VHS but all the new stuff is DVD, of course. Back then, their Asian cinema extended to dubs of things like Hard Boiled and Akira and the works of Wong Kar-wai. Nowadays, they still don't have a lot of Asian titles but they include Korean and Indian titles and, because they are on DVD, they are all subbed.

Aside from those freaking region codes, DVDs have brought the world closer.

I saw Star Trek at the IMax. It was good. I very much admired how they made their AU into a continuation.

What the heck, why not? WORDS!!!


Got it. *jogs off to post*

One of your words was Nokomarie?

::PHOO GAH!:: = : : < I > P H O O----G A H ! < / > : : It's all done with the shift key depressed except for the strike and kindly view the dashes as two spaces. I cannot answer for the vagaries of lj.

Oh, yeah, WORDS.



The browser, all browsers, is designed to replace a series of spaces with a single space.

The way to avoid that on the web is to use the non-breaking space which you can enter as &nbsp;

So it's

::PHOO  GAH!:: = : : < I > P H O O&nbsp;&nbsp;G A H ! < / I > : :

 ...I wonder if I will remember that the next time I need to use it; say, eighteen months from now.

I love your pic spam posts and I think you're resourceful because some of my favourite links come from things you've posted, We all remember this one:


What better way to describe Noko than ::phoo gah!::

You got what I meant by media; sorry I couldn't think of the right word. You're very visually oriented. I was a beta fan but I remember how easy it used to be to defeat the old Macrovision on VHS tapes (use 2 machines and tape the image from the TV) but DVDs make the world go 'round.

What better way to describe Noko than ::phoo gah!::

Especially when one doesn't want to seem too brown nosey or assumption making.

In case you can't tell, I had more trouble than I anticipated thinking up (public) words for you. I was thinking you might write down how you met or something. ::phoo gah!:: was a good save. Sorry about that. I didn't mean to put you on the spot.

Interesting but complicated and time consuming meme. I think next time I'll stick to things like 'What Kind of Tea Are You?'
