Tagged by frax, who perhaps doesn't know my stance on favourite things. The thing is, even if I could come up with a definitive favourite now, there's no reason (for anyone, me included) to assume it'll still be my favourite this afternoon, let alone next week. And I usually can't even come up with a favourite for now, because there are so many of them for most categories of thing. So take all of these answers with lots of salt. The actors particularly, 'cos I'm rubbish at remembering them off the top of my head.( Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens )
In the future, scientists will be able to resurrect human beings - but not using DNA. Instead, they will rebuild you from the collective memories of people who know you.
So: Please post a comment describing one thing you know about me. Preferably something interesting,
but factual. One day internet archaeologists will use this information to bring me back to life, so make sure what you say is accurateinteresting!
Oh yeah, then post this to your journal. Go on, you know you want to.
Once more he stept into the street,
And to his lips again
Laid his long pipe of smooth straight cane;
And ere he blew three notes (such sweet
Soft notes as yet musician's cunning
Never gave the enraptured air)
There was a rustling that seemed like a bustling
Of merry crowds justling at pitching and hustling,
Small feet were pattering, wooden shoes clattering,
Little hands clapping and little tongues chattering,
And, like fowls in a farm-yard when barley is scattering,
Out came the children running.
All the little boys and girls,
With rosy cheeks and flaxen curls,
And sparkling eyes and teeth like pearls,
Tripping and skipping, ran merrily after
The wonderful music with shouting and laughter.

Incidentally, whilst in Venice, smiorgan and I visited Ca'Rezzonico, where Browning died.
Go to the toy aisle of any store. All the dolls (or "action figures") come packaged with one or two "accessories." Barbie has her purse, The Hulk has a big rock, Space Ghost has little cards and a desk.
If I were to go to the toy store and buy a YOU action figure, which one or two little objects would be in your package with you?
The action figure of me has an iBook and a triskell necklace, of course.
