Rants and Stuff / Re: Folklife and missed calls
« on: May 27, 2005, 01:33:19 PM »
I got a call the other day from a guy who left a nearly unintelligible message--"Hi, this is mumble, mumble mumble mumble... just calling to say hi..." and then a phone number with an area code.  I googled it out of curiosity, and got a divorce attorney in Massachussets.  That was a little weird.  But he never called back, so I'm assuming it was a wrong number.  Heh.

My husband was working on a PhD in folklore (which it looks like he's not going to finish--dissertation woes) and has been into folk music for a long time.  He plays the fiddle fairly well and an assortment of odd instruments somewhat less well.  

Where are you going hiking?   ;D

Pssst... it's Edmund.

I think Susan looks like a cross between Jennifer Connelly and Kate Beckinsale.

I loved The Greatest American Hero (truly, madly, deeply) and have been waiting for it to be released on DVD since... well, since before there were DVDs.  I read, though, that they weren't able to get the rights to use some of the songs (weren't able to or didn't try, I don't know), so the songs were replaced or cut, and there may have been other things edited as well.  (Then there was that whole Hinkley/Hanley/"Mister H" thing...I was hoping they could have fixed that somehow.)  

So I'm thinking I'd like to watch a couple episodes before plunking down the money.  I'm sure I'll have to, eventually.  I never did see the pilot episode, which has left my life unfulfilled.   ;)

Hi!  I'm Peter (Ookla the Mok)'s sister Helena.  He had mentioned the site a couple of times so I thought I would check it out.

I went to BYU (English major) and was on the staff of The Leading Edge for my last semester (winter 96), where I enjoyed a very brief stint as an assistant fiction person.  I'm still not sure if the story I ran the editing group on actually got published or not.

I served in the Korea Taejon mission (92-93) and married Doug Jole, who was also on TLE, but not at the same time.  We spent three years in Newfoundland and are now in Tacoma Washington.  After being married for eight years we gave birth to The World's Cutest Baby™.  She's keeping us busy.

I'm not really a gamer (aside from Settlers of Catan--does that count?) but I've always enjoyed Fantasy and SF books and TV/movies.  Favorite authors are Lois McMaster Bujold and Terry Pratchett.

I do pencil portraits and paint the ocassional mural (this is not really lucrative because I'm very slow).  Right now I'm painting Hogwarts Castle in a closet.  It's the Cupboard Under the Stairs.  It's taking much longer than I anticipated.  (Baby complicates things a bit).  I'm also getting into photography, though still very much a newbie.

I'm 5¾ years older than Peter, and I have exactly the same problem with mixing up Memorial Day and Labor Day.
