F is for... Favorites


Thank you to Cassis, Shannal, Bisquick, Tilinka, Ynahteb and others for these questions! Here are some of my Favorite Things.

Favorite timewasters: various wonderfully shallow games from Yahoo.
Favorite Doodle: very hard to choose. In terms of giggles, the Meaning of Liff was very satisfying. I really enjoyed Moving Pictures, and the music album version from the year before. loldoodlz was great.
Favorite music: Favorite music to answer petitions to is Mozart's Requiem. lacrimosa dies illa indeed. Favorite music to doodle to - that would depend what kind of doodle it was. If I'm writing, then something instrumental and fairly unobtrusive - perhaps some Faure or some more Mozart. If I'm drawing or painting, something more upbeat - REM, Grieg, Throwing Muses. If I'm writing music - no other music! Does that cover all Doodle types? Oh, maybe riddles. For riddles... no, I'd think about those in bed with whatever music is in my head at the time!
Favorite guilty pleasure: sea monster hunting. Oh, and diet cherry coke.
Favorite mode of transportation: Roller coaster.
Favorite game which isn't Puzzle Pirates: Progress Quest. ;) (I'm assuming you mean computer game)
Favorite Pen: good question! I love pens. I enjoy calligraphy, and probably my favorite pen overall is a scroll nib pen - it has a double nib, producing one thicker and one thinner line.
Favorite myth involving Apollo: I like the fact that I started the Olympic Games. More or less. >.<
Favorite flavor of ice cream: I don't have one. I hardly eat it.
Favorite ship rename: Tarrlox on Sage owns the Misspelt Bhote. I love standard renames - I'm sure there are lots of lovely custom renames, but making a standard rename work is a great joy to me. Having said that, I'm very fond of my own Salmon of Doubt!
Favorite ocean: there are bright spots on every ocean, but my favorite is Sage. I loved it from the first day it opened. And I wear a hare hare yukai outfit there, of course. It's pleasantly breezy.
Favorite academic subject: looking back, probably Latin.
Favorite in-game setting: I'm not sure it's what you meant, but I like banks and inns best!
Favorite fruit: raspberries
Favorite children's show: can I count Invader Zim as a children's show?
Favorite joke: my favorite two jokes are ones that most people don't find at all funny. I'm generally lying helpless with tears of laughter rolling down my face while the listeners stare at me, somewhat disapproving and allwhat bemused. This reaction just makes it funnier for me. I'll try you out with my third favorite joke, though:
Two math professors are having dinner. The first is bemoaning the fact that the average person knows very little about basic mathemathics. The second one disagrees, and argues that most people can cope with a reasonable amount of math.
The first mathematician goes off to the washroom, and in his absence the second calls over the waitress.
He tells her that in a few minutes, after his friend has returned, he will call her over and ask her a question. All she has to do is answer one third x cubed.
She repeats "one thir -- dex cue"? He repeats "one third x cubed".
"One thir dex cuebd"?
"Yes, that's right", he says. So she agrees, and goes off mumbling to herself, "one thir dex cuebd...".
The first professor returns and the second proposes a bet to prove his point, that most people do know something about basic math. He says that he will ask the blonde waitress an integral. His colleague agrees. So they call the waitress over, and he asks her "What is the integral of x squared"?
The waitress says "One third x cubed", and walks away from the table, turning back over her shoulder to add "plus a constant".

Favorite cheesy pick-up line: how're YOU doin'? (Joey style)
Favorite made-up word: obstroperous
Favorite board game: Scrabble
Favorite book/author: I read a lot. Too many to choose from. I need to mention Douglas Adams, though, both for his fiction and for "Last Chance To See".
Favorite duty puzzle: probably bilging.
Favorite crafting puzzle: blacksmithing.
Favorite muppet: Zoot.
Favorite event I've run: It's difficult to narrow down to one, but I have to go for the Easter Eggs. This is partly because of the beautiful eggs that result, but mostly because of the community spirit that goes into the contest. To see everyone helping other entrants to get their eggs rendered and tested, and helping with YPPedia and providing constructive feedback - I love it. I think it shows everything that's best about the community. And then, because it really is too difficult to mention only one, I'm going to say that I just loved judging the karaoke parody event, and that Dead Letter Office made me laugh out loud more often than any other event.
Favorite hat: easy! Yellow/yellow musketeer hat - the choice of champions!
Favorite coffee: I guess a latte, but I rarely drink coffee.
Favorite fondle: *grins* The small of the back is a fondley kind of place.
Favorite fantasy: winning the lotto.
Favorite fondu: cheese

:D

I must say that I was surprised you mentioned Invader Zim. It's an awesome show, and it's so sad it only survived 2 seasons in the U.S. Darn those network execs at Nickelodeon!

I had a really awesome comment typed out, but apparently I can't do simple math and it denied me. Short version: I loled at the joke and have a similar situation with another joke.

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

this will never work out as effective as you would expect to be.
