Hey, F-List :-)  
As various forms of introductory games and 'Getting to Know You' posts seem to be making the round at the moment, here is a particularly cute meme I adopted from selenak...

Comment and I will:

1) Tell you why I friended you.
2) Associate you with a song/film.
3) Tell a random fact about you.
4) Tell a first memory about you.
5) Associate you with a character/pairing.
6) Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
7) Show you my favourite user pic of yours.
8) In retort, you must spread this disease in your LJ.

1) Because the alternative would have been unthinkable *g*

2) Star Wars. Because of the first German stories you send me and because of our e-mail conversations about Obi-wan and Anakin/Vader.

3) You've got fascinating bookshelves.

4)I think I'll go for a real life memory instead of a virtual one *g*
Birmingham, Chronicles '99. The moment I spotted you among dozens of other con visitors and gathered all my courage to say something along the lines of "Hi, we haven't met in person yet, but it's me, Sybille"

5) Puh, tough decision. I'm somewhat torn between Darla and Londo.

6) How come you don't cook?

6.) Pure laziness and lack of motivation in my existence as a single, I suppose. I did a class once when I was still in school, but the most I could fix you up with on my own today are spaghetti.

Curiosity killed the cat.

1) Well, you are witty, and sane, and read like you are a very nice person. Plus I love the occasional anecdote about life in the Canadian wilderness.

2) I'm afraid it's got to be Fargo *g*

3) You seem to be not that fond of car driving.

4) Reading one of your SW stories, For the Record, and thinking "Wow, that author has a good feeling for dialogue and rhythm".

5) Obi-Wan.

6) When you started writing original fiction, what made you opt for YA novels instead of addressing an older, more general audience?

Fargo? Never even saw the movie, but I know there are some cold, snowy scenes, so yeah. *g*

I don't mind driving cars, especially small zippy ones on good roads. What I dislike are the distances we face. I have to drive forever to get anywhere.

Original fiction. I didn't opt for YA. My first tome (yes, it was huge) was adult fantasy, probably with too many cliches to ever get published. Then the story that is getting published demanded to be written. Then I wrote a huge time travel novel that still needs editing (it's present day/WWII & very adult). Then another YA demanded to be written, then a whole YA series tapped on my shoulder. So it's really more like YA chose me. That said, I do love reading YA (though not the mushy girly stuff). Many YA novels are a better quality of writing than a lot of adult books. Yes, I *am* biased. :-)

you must have known I could never resist this one :-)

1) Because you see things from a different perspective and are courageous enough to admit this. Oh, and I also love the occasional photo posts.

2) Out of Africa.

3) You need a dish washing machine. Soon! ;-)

4) The two of us, walking through Camden and trying to shoot a certain picture. I was so glad the photo gave us a reason to officially exchange addresses and phone numbers.

5) Do Clint Eastwood's characters ever have names?

6) If you could run your own museum, what kind of museum would it be?

Kathy's "Cavendish" icons are pretty, but this is surely the most realistic one ;-)
