I was trying to organize the buildup of crud on my desktop when I realized that I have memes I'd not yet responded to, lo these many months later. So... the Letter Meme. I was given the letter 'J,' and I think I was supposed to list ten things that began with that letter and why I thought they were varying degrees of awesome.

So, erm... here you go. And if you want a letter, I'll give you one!

~jasmine green tea: best tea blend, ever. was the driving force behind my first NaNovel. I’ll have to include Trader Joe’s in the acknowledgments when the book is published.

~jelly roll pans: it was a happy day when I first bought a commercial gauge jelly roll pan. I now have two, and could use a third. I use them for everything. One of the best Christmas presents I ever got was a silpat of the same dimensions. so much yay!

~jet packs: some day, I will own one. it will run on the fears of fundamentalists, the apologies of oil company executives and the lingering delusions of the Bush administration. for now, I swoon over the young Billy-before-he-was- “Call me Bill”- Campbell in The Rocketeer. oh, and Adam Strange. I liked him before 52 made it cool to do so.

~joy: I don’t embrace it nearly enough. used to. fear I’ve grown cynical. will remedy.

*photo forthcoming; suggestions welcome*

~jilly: my sweet, smudge-nosed kitty!

~jill, red handed: “Have you ever considered a life of piracy?” when Hook, as portrayed by Jason Isaacs, asks you this question, you’re darned tootin’ you have an answer ready.

~Jason Isaacs: see above. woof.

~John Barrowman: crazy handsome. huge geek. oh, yeah - he also sings. and wears little wire-rimmed glasses. and works suspenders and a greatcoat like nobody’s business. mmm. (note: "Jack Harkness, Captain" would also suffice)

~ jenga: I’ve never actually played it, but it has proved rich fodder in the realm of improvisation. so thank you, jenga! without you, I’d be stuck with references to ‘pick up sticks.’ and ‘hungry hungry hippos.’

~jousting: scary stuff, this. also quite amazing and brilliant and just plain cool. I was lucky to have the chance to learn and to perform. and y’know? I was pretty damned good at it.

***BUT WAIT! mine goes to eleven!***

~jenelle, aka fair_juliet: she's smart, she's sassy, she's got mad talents. part fairy-princess, part gangster's moll, she'd totally triumph over me in a contest to be the next Companion to the Doctor (and rightfully so).

also, she loves trees. clearly.

***erm, TWELVE!*** 'cause I never realized how many awesome things - and more importantly, people - I know that begin with J. this may be ongoing.

~julia, aka igraine: she's my separated-at-birth (and by several years) sister. we both crushed on Gregory Peck (and why wouldn't we?) and squee over the same books and comics. we're both Batgirl, though I suspect I'm an Elseworlds version. she's ridiculously lovely and a truly excellent writer. also, she needs to poke me come January 'cause we need to have our margarita night

seriously: how gorgeous is she?

zomg I am made of fail*

OR AM I? Click again, and behold!

*seriously, how lame am I? 'Cause I think you're the one who initially gave me the letter J. extra lameness for being so used to seeing you on lj that I think of you as the letter F, for fair_juliet.
Julietfair_juliet on November 15th, 2007 03:29 am (UTC)
Dammit, now I feel bad. I'm also embarrassed that you outted me as closeted tree humper.
Kelladyjoust on November 15th, 2007 03:30 am (UTC)
I think of you as the sexually-liberated Lorax.

Juliaigraine120 on November 15th, 2007 03:34 am (UTC)
Letter, please!


Kel: You see how awseome I amladyjoust on November 15th, 2007 03:55 am (UTC)
there are, clearly, no limits to my toolishness.


Anyway, I present to you the letter R. And an icon smacking of irony, considering the aforementioned toolishness. Away you go!

Andrewquueer on November 15th, 2007 04:06 am (UTC)
yo quiero una letra!
Kel: lovely Roseladyjoust on November 15th, 2007 04:12 am (UTC)
Tiene usted la letra B.

my Spanish is terribly creaky. apologies it that's painfully wrong.
Andrewquueer on November 15th, 2007 04:14 am (UTC)
i would have gone with, "te doy la letra B"

But whatever.
Kelladyjoust on November 15th, 2007 04:17 am (UTC)
I defer to your superior knowledge. :)

Bird on a Wing: Chickadeebirdlets!caragana_leaves on November 16th, 2007 04:44 pm (UTC)
I have no idea when I can come visit, but dammit, I WANTS TO, precious! Of course you're welcome to visit me any time you want. You can watch chickadees with me out the front window. *mad hugz*

What an AWESOME picture of you and Shadow. I am snagging it to share on my equestrian community if that is OK with you?

Also I have a question for ya? I want to learn to tilt. Jousting with the sticks and the falling off is kinda scary and forbidden by the BF as he is afraid of me being injured (Which is very sweet. I feel loved.). Unfortunately where I just moved to is more conducive to trail riding, which I still would love you to come do :D. But there really isn't any nice big flat areas to set up a tilt yard. But this will change! Oh yes this will change. I am saving for my own place around these parts somewhere and then I will be able to tilt. So...I was thinking maybe we could work out a trade? Tilting lessons for lets say your own Morgan horse? What do you think? This is years off so you'ld have plenty of time to prepare. Was just a thought.

Anyway LOVE that picture! LOVE that horse! I miss her. I miss you!

Re: OMG!
hee! Thanks! And yes, feel free to share the pic as you wish. I miss Shadow so very much.

As to your question: hell, yeah!
Dark Angel: FacePainteuph0ra on November 15th, 2007 05:20 pm (UTC)
Re: OMG!

I'll email you with more details. Like I said the idea is years off since I don't have anywhere to actually train right now what with living in the woods. But I do plan on breeding my mares next summer and undoubtedly the year after as well, etc. It takes about four years to raise a finished mature horse and about five years is my time frame for moving as long as I find the right place.
Juliaigraine120 on November 15th, 2007 09:16 pm (UTC)
Yay! I feel special, and HELL YES margaritas in January. Also, post away!

PS: I love you! *pushes you down and runs away in a 5 year old manner*
Mairearanturas on November 15th, 2007 10:24 pm (UTC)
Okay -- can I have a letter?
Kel: Helo's smileladyjoust on November 15th, 2007 11:10 pm (UTC)
Of course you can! 'F' for you!
