3a. Wedge Gaming, Friday, November 5, 2004. I think that we left you there at about 10:30pm EST.
3b. Because you live Far Away now.
4. Chatting. You're a good storyteller and conversationalist.

6. I can't think of a particular story about you offhand, but I definitely like the way you tell stories of what happened in the Good Old Days at the Academy.
7. Your skill at video games
8. Can't think of anything in particular offhand...
9. Depends on the job, but I would think so in general.
10. Certainly.
11. Practical, friendly
12. I think that the one you're in is well-suited for you, at least as far as I can tell

6) Oops, reversed with 5. I'd say Billy Joel or Don McLean

8) Nope. ;)
9) Sure. If I get one elsewhere you can have mine.
10) Sure. If I get one elsewhere you can have mine.
11) Paternalistic.

1. Nope
2a. Um, I have a vague image of you first day at the academy. I think you were sitting near Norman in the fishbowl. I was looking at Norman so I noticed you, you had a ponytail. That probably doesn't count as "meeting" though so no.
2b. I like ponytails
3a. First or second week of August.
3b. Because I live in the middle of nowhere.
4. If we're together, its enough.
5. Does Halo count? Actually Alice's Restaurant.

7. Your Stoicism
8. Your Stoicism
9. Depends on the job, if you want it, yes.
10. Depends on who to. To a friend of mine, yes.

Indeed. Truthfully, I was torn between the Q-ship mellow tale and the story of us over these last 10 months. They are both good stories, but of rather different genre's. Hence, I asked about the audience.

Trogdor, especially when played full blast after the end of the Secret Song.
Also, You're Not Alone.

6. Do you have a favorite story about me? What is it?
I remember the day when you informed me that my password had been compromised...

I'm going to have to follow suit with pezzonovante and say "anything with the word 'analyst' in it."

13. Will you be putting this in your journal so that I can answer these questions for you?
I haven't decided as yet.

1. Blinding White
2. No, do you?
3a. Stopped by at gaming weekend.
3b. A few reasons...
4. Just talking... Halo's a close second.
5. The Way
6. I'm not very good at stories.
7. Your incredible cleverness.
8. (inferred) Failure to maintain an integrity of approach and perception in accomplishing objectives and preserving self-image, resulting in trust issues. [Hey, you can't get away with asking a question like that and expecting all nice answers.]
9. Yes.
10. I don't recommend friends; I introduce them! I'd do that gladly.

2. No, do you?

Oddly enough, I do. It was when Lucas introduced me to you, insisting that I call you Roxton, to ensure that my entire class would know you only by that name. Because of that, I didn't know your real name for almost a year.

3b. A few reasons...

ME-STEERERR-E-US. Not really, but probably nothing we'll ever talk about.

8. (inferred) Failure to maintain an integrity of approach and perception in accomplishing objectives and preserving self-image, resulting in trust issues. [Hey, you can't get away with asking a question like that and expecting all nice answers.]

OK, that one just evaded me. Is there a simpler, if more direct, way of saying that?

2: Haw, God, I remember that. Lucas was great! He subsequently became a PhoenixMud addict, and except for my occasional jaunt there to say hi, I never heard from him again. I wonder how he's doing?

3b: I wouldn't be so sure. We need to do some patching, and I think I'm ready.

8: People change, but you once gave me ample evidence to think that you were very capable of manipulating how you see things and people, in addition to your own responsibilities in order to get stuff done or to feel better about yourself. I also suspected you of being blatantly two-faced, being reconciling or even apologetic in person, and scathingly accusative in other company. This shit's really old, though, and I don't see you this way; I don't really see you in any way. Time has made us strangers.

Interesting. I've been accused of being manipulative and two-faced before, but not in a couple of years. I'd like to think I grew out of that, shortly after I got removed from an environment where it was overtly prevelant. In any event, I'll be in Worcester this weekend. If you have time for hanging out or even sharing a meal in town, let me know and I'll blow a hole in my schedule for you.

#3848B4

2a. Do you remember the first time we met?
Nope

2b. If so, what was your first impression and why?
NA

3a. When is the last time you saw me?
Playing Halo 2 on the weekend

3b. If it's been too long ago, why has it been?
Last time I saw you was just a few days ago

4. What's your favorite activity when we're together?
Listening to your various stories

5. Is there a song, artist, movie or similar thing that's made you think of me even though I wasn't there?
Not off hand

6. Do you have a favorite story about me? What is it?
Not really a story about you, but the closest thing that comes to mind is playing Age of Empires at a LAN party one time. I was to the south-east of PC, and you were to the north. I only knew of his northern base and you only knew of his southern base. Both of us had a large fleet of 20-30 ships and decided to attack Pete at the same time. However instead of finding Pete we found each other's fleets and there was a massive naval battle. I had slightly more ships than you did but yours were slightly better. I think that in the end I had 2 ships remaining and the other ~50 between us were mutualled.

You always have something to talk about

You always win at games

interesting is the first word that comes to mind
