QotD: Your Answers, Please…

I’m a transcriptionist. I sit at home, headphones on, listening to and inputting the spoken word. It can be boring – once I transcribed a whole talk about Food Quality Plastics – but generally it’s intriguing.

Just what do you think I was working on, when I transcribed the following:

And I’ll have to have her, whether she is friendly or hostile or whatever. I don’t know

Just doing a read through, and came across this little gem:

I’m just hitting on them as I see them.


I’m Posting every day in 2011!

Saw this posted as a way to help you blog* and I thought Hey, I could combine that with the Flickr idea of a photo a day! and voila – my version of A Post A Day will be posting one photograph taken by me, every day**, with a commentary. A visual diary.

Hope I manage to keep it up – I failed with the Flickr one, but I didn’t have a decent camera-phone then.

* – If you subcribe, you will get a daily email with a suggested theme – sort of like the QotD! I was going to do that, but somehow, my Voxy memories wouldn’t let me…
** –  not necessarily on the same day – I have lots already taken that I could share.

Friday Five – Internet Fever

Did you ever have a domain name?
Domain Name?  Yup, got one of those.  No, I am not telling you what it is!

When did you first start blogging?

September 25th 2006.

What is your favourite website?

Duh – Vox.  Oh, you mean other than Vox!  Sorry, that’s it.  First one of my homepages.  The one I check the most.  The one I use the most.

What is your preferred search engine, yahoo, google, etc?

What – you mean there is something other than google out there?  Whoa.  That’s a bit scary, that is.

Link: your favourite site.
OK.  We all know Vox is my fave site, and you’re here already.  So I will post a link to Tampon Crafts, a site I find very amusing – will that do?  Well, it’s tough if it doesn’t (so yah boo sucks)

And look – I actually posted it on a Friday too!  Still not showing in my neighbourhood posts though, Friday5 – I have complained to Management about this.

QotD: Forward My Mail

In which fictional world/universe/land/city would you most like to live?

I am struggling with this one. I would quite like to go and share with Lorelei in a Sex in the City high living loft.  But I feel too fat and English for that, really.  Not sure the Big Apple is for someone who really prefers different fruit!

There’s a lot of people out there want to live with Harry Potter at Hogwarts.  Mmm.  That’s just odd – well, unless you are 17, in which case it’s fine – but to want to return to being 17… I cannot think of anything more hellish than revisiting adolescence!

Travelling with Dr Who caught my fancy for a moment or two, then I remembered – yes, the assistants always survive, but they always end up living back on Earth, unable to explain to people how they have touched the sky and ridden the wind.

Narnia, an old childhood favourite?  Well, there’s the thing.  Childhood.  Now I want running water, electricity and access to the internet on a fairly regular basis.

Got it.  John Varley’s world.  If you haven’t read any of his Eight World novels, do.

Earth has been cleansed by monster aliens who live in the gas giants, but hell, it deserved it, and we are now living among the stars, a long-held dream of mine.  Humans can be either gender, at will; murder is not permanent; everyone has a high standard of living; and, if you are not a hero or protagonist, you will have a long and easy life, full of satisfaction and adventure.

No one is fat, old, poor (unless they want to be): a meritocratic utopian vision where things happen.  Damn me.

See you there
