Jumping right on the bandwagon with gusto was circle23. First off, "a d20 rolling"...
Yes, that's a giant stuffed d20, a foot across.
Next he wanted an armpit, so he gets Erik's:
Why he asked me for "cat butt", I dunno...
Next, he wanted the crisper in my fridge...
*gasp* Ok, yes, the base of my signature BBQ sauce is Sweet Baby Ray's.
Under my bed? OK...
My workstation/desk (and, as he put it, "don't you dare clean it up"). Ha, no worries of that...
I should have included a closer shot of the central area, due to all the little details and toys there...but I didn't.
And, lastly, a mirror-mirror recursion. Well, my bathroom mirror is in terrible need of cleaning, but we carried on anyway...
staxxy wanted to see my dice collection...
morsobscena wanted the best view out of my window. Well, most of my windows look at fences or the parking lot, but the back balcony does look over the pool...
Also, he wanted the oldest book in the house...
gatorclix wanted my gaming area and books. Well, that table withe the dice collection is most of where we game, but here's the bookshelf...
It would be more full, but in one of my moves, I seem to have lost an entire box of game books. *unhappy gamer face*
seantaclaus asked for my five favorite comics and why...
1: Ghost Rider #12: I was a huge fan of the Dan Ketch incarnation of Ghost Rider, but this particular issue was autographed by Mark Texiera (the artist)
2: Blade Runner #1: I'm a Blade Runner nut, so having this is no surprise. 60 cents? Man, welcome back to 1982. One thing that amuses me about this comic is that some of the differences it has from the movie are actually referenced in the original shooting script.
3: I have almost every comic appearance of Purgatori. Hell, I almost had her tattooed on me (but my skin isn't fond of red ink, sadly). When I moved to this place and checked out the local shop, they had a huge stack of Purgatori comics, and I sighed over them. Di went and bought the stack, as a present, and made me wait MONTHS to get them for Xmas.
4: The Crow: the comics clicked with me at a time when I was feeling pretty messed up. Having them autographed by Mr. O'Barr is a treasured thing.
5: Doom Patrol #63: the moment I picked up Doom Patrol, I was hooked. Something about it just grabbed me and would not let go. I identified with them, felt them as part of me (they ARE tattooed on me). I have to give a lot of that credit to Grant Morrison's writing; once Rachel Pollack took over, I was a faithful reader, but not as impressed. #63 was the final Morrison issue, a bittersweet moment. It was also the moment that Jane, lost and confused in life and her own mind by the Candlemaker, was found and rescued by Cliff just as she was about to commit suicide. He'd sworn that he'd find her no matter where she was, and because I identified so closely with Cliff, it was a powerful moment, both the promise and the find (ha, I'm getting goosebumps writing this all). If you go back to the pic of my desk, on the wall, just touching my chair, there's a pair of comic pages there; that's the moment he found her. Anytime I need a reminder of why I'm helping someone, I look at it, and I'm ready to do whatever's needed.
Right, back to the pix. clarsa wanted my fridge door...
Not much on the front, as it gets knocked off, so you get the side, too
suphaltus wanted my favorite object. you know, there's a lot of things I have that either I found or have been given by people that I love and cherish, however, the main thing that I know, without a doubt, that I'd go to insane lengths to protect and save is...
...my machine. Sad, maybe, but true.
kwsapphire, you have the honor of giving me the first weird one. "Up"? Well, Erik and I brainstormed this one a little...
Note that I did tell him to look as bored as possible. He was actually having a good time helping out.
theatresphynx asked for my DVDs. Well, they are all in giant CD wallets, but here they are by all the videotapes, etc.
My books? Well, here's the main shelf by my bed...
Not counting all the ones in storage, of course.
And a frog?
An origami tree frog that got put on the front door not long after we moved in, and it's been there ever since.
kitchenqueen wanted "joy"...
moonchylde suggested "all eyes watching me". I had an idea, but I decided it took too much work, so...
A poster on my wall of the cover of The Boys #1.
praenomenal jumped on the 'odd suggestion' thing and gave me several. Wisdom:
(for those that don't know, the tribal bit in the middle is my 'wedding ring')
The $400 watch I never wear
padparadscha asked for what I like to write with. Well, that wasn't hard...
Nerve damage in my hands makes longhand writing difficult, sadly. Besides, my penmanship is atrocious.
jamiebld gave me several. A couple, I've shown already (fridge door and desk). Inside the fridge:
The floor of my closet:
Not much in my closet that can be seen, so here's the floor of my comics area (which needs to be cleaned up and some filing done)
...and a junk drawer. I don't really have one, but here's Dianna's drawer in the bathroom:
Last, but not least, we come to jonathanbarton's list. Ol' JB decided to stick it to me, so I got a little creative on some. The first three on the list were Alive, Old, and Green...
My cat has claimed this shaggy pillow as her own.
Thus far, I've never met anyone who's owned or even seen this book.
Yellow and Smiling:
Yes, that's a liver.
Fabulous and That Makes You Laugh:
C'mon, an action figure of Pope John Paul II is fabulous, and having him hang out with Lucifer and a bunch of slashers makes me laugh.
Above You and Below You
I used to collect Hot Wheels cars.
Cthulhu Devotional Candle and giant Parcheesi pieces
Double duty: not only is it a ball, it's a flat, round crocheted piece that turns out that way.
Erik's Nintendo DS
I hate this band. Di loves them.
That's the ball from 'Round' behind it.
Moving and Steel:
My summertime life-saver. Sorry, my hands were staring to shake.
And lastly, Pretty:
Bettie Page, my fuzzy baby girl, my second girlfriend, who has climbed on and off my lap pretty much constantly for the last hour and a half as I posted all this.
And there you have it. This was fun, and I hope you enjoyed reading sand seeing as much as I did taking and posting.
