From [ profile] kcobweb, a meme: comment on this post and I'll tell you five subjects/things I associate with you. Then you post them in your lj and elaborate.

I was given Composition. Shyness. Feminism. Singing. Parenting. I could write an essay on each, so I'm splitting them up (plus maybe I'll get more comments if I do so...I like comments.) I'll do the dangerous one first: feminism.

Put your media player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.

I saw it again this evening

Listen boy, I don't want to see you
Under the dog star sail,
Groovin' on a Sunday afternoon.
Nobody noticed the touch of your hand.

Time, time, time to see what's become of me---
I met him in a swamp down in Dagobah---
You fill up my senses like a night in a forest.

My life spins like a hurricane.
You'll remember me when the West Wind moves.
Can't you see it coming?
I ain't got time to think about money walking by;
The palace guards are sleeping.

There's a train, there's a train we got to catch
The streets are wet, the lights have yet to shed their darkened luster on the scene.
Pardon me, but I couldn't help but see
There's travel in your future when your tongue freezes to the back of a speeding bus.
The last train is nearly due.

When I get to the bottom, I go back to the top of the slide.
How can I just let you walk away?
We walked on the beach beside that old hotel.

(So is it a guessing game now, or what?)

From [ profile] wavyarms, an 8 facts meme:
Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

8 Interesting Things
1. I am an amateur genealogist. I know the names of some of my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, who were born in the 1500's. My ancestors lived in England, Wales, Germany, Alsace, Switzerland, Sicily, and who knows where else.
2. I am an Eagle Scout.
3. My brother used to chase me up stairs, making a high-pitched barking noise; to this day I'm a little nervous having someone follow me upstairs, and that goes triple when it's him.
4. I submitted a short story to Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine when I was a senior in high school. It was summarily rejected, a wise decision on their part. :) I did a fair amount of fiction writing in high school, and am rather sad that I don't do as much now: my taste has outgrown my abilities.
5. My dad has a large LP collection, which combined with a good memory for music and lyrics means that I have a sometimes-freakish ability (for a non-aficionado) to recognize music from the 60s and the 70s. Mind you, I rarely know who the performers were.
6. I wrote a walking tour of Easton, Pennsylvania, which was published as a booklet and distributed through the local historical society. (I was a big fan of local history where I grew up.)
7. There are 22 webcomics that I read regularly.
8. I can't swim: the water pressure makes me panic because it's harder to breathe. I know the strokes and can get around in a pool, but I stay out of places where I can't touch bottom.
