"You know"

Spending some time overseas, where I soon picked up "No Worries" off the Aussie residents of the Canadian Rockies, it's become increasingly obvious to me that there is a disease at the heart of the English language. That is the phrase "You know".

Inserted into any conversation for any reason, we're so anti the idea that we should pause to think, perhaps dropping the conch, rather than keep the motormouth running.

Today I think I only "you know"ed twice, but still each time I kicked myself.

So LJ masses, after I failed to post the "Tell me something interesting I missed not having been back through two weeks of your journal" earlier this week I will challenge you all to "Count your "you know"s for the day" and post the results.

Go on - you know you want to...

"Ask me any question (or more than one if you want) of or about one ofmy characters (be they tabletop, LRP, past or present) and I will reply honestly - I of course reserve the right to reply with "Find Out In Game" if it's a question about a current character."

I can imagine this will confuse perhaps 40% of my friends list at least...

I had cause to look up this article from 2003 on Lucky People - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/3335275.stm.

Of the four top tips:
  • Listen to your gut instincts - they are normally right
  • Be open to new experiences and breaking your normal routine
  • Spend a few moments each day remembering things that went well
  • Visualise yourself being lucky before an important meeting or telephone call. Luck is very often a self-fulfilling prophecy

How many have you done in the last 24 hours?[Poll #757151]

Some people can have a radical long-term affect upon each other, be it a change in viewpoints or a change in fortune.
If I've been the cause of any lasting shift in your life/viewpoint, then by all means tell me what I've done..

Then copy and paste this in your journal so that others can do the same for you.

I'm not sure how this will turn out, but I feel up for the challenge.

Drabble Meme

I'll respond to (at least) the first ten people who request a short piece of fiction on a specific subject or character (and if the character isn't real familiar, give me some description to work with,please!) with a drabble of (at least) 100words. I say nothing about how long it will take me to write said Drabbles nor speak for the quality.

TIME have picked their 100 best English language novels from 1923 to the present.

So how many have you read?


Which ones have you read? (or indeed haven't if that’s a quicker way to do it)

Cut because it's no real interest to anyone but me.. )

Do you have anything to say in your defence?

No. No excuses. No regrets.

Your Ideal Relationship is Polyamory

You want to have your cake... and everyone else's.
Which isn't a bad thing, if everyone else gets to eat too!
You're too much of a free spirit to be tied down by a traditional relationship.
You think relationships should be open and free, with few restrictions.

I need to try harder to be properly offensive, or perhaps if I was trying to use a Meme-as-excuse-to-communicate-truths I need to specify a smaller set or just edit it manually.

1. Go here.
2. Pass it on.
