ah! i am first! FIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRST!

What Would You Do If I . . .
. . . cried?
pat you thoroughly. look confused. i am awful with crying people.

. . . said I liked you?
roll my eyes.

. . . kissed you?
look confused.

. . . started smoking?
wrinkle my nose. hope it was temporary.

. . . stole something?
look very confused.

. . . was hospitalized?
hope you were okay. assume it was from stress. make get well cupcakes!

. . . ran away from home?
wonder whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

. . . got in a fight and you were there?
pity the other person. also, be confused. you don't seem the violent type.


What Do You Think About My . . .
. . . personality?
sparkling!

. . . eyes?
they are good for seeing with!

. . . face?
you frown a lot! which is misleading!

. . . hair?
better without it!

. . . clothes?
they seem to tend to cover the essential parts.

. . . voice?
i like it!

. . . mannerisms?
and i like them!

. . . sense of humor?
pervert! but at least your sense of humor can't be summed up as "butts are funny" (now with optional "your mom" add-on), unlike some people.

. . . choice of music?
hmm, i don't know what you listen to.

. . . family?
it seems like you like your parents a lot, so they are probably good people. the extended family sound like mostly jerks, though.

Would You . . .
. . . be my friend?
sure!

. . . tell me the truth, no matter what?
doubtful!

. . . lie to make me feel better?
i doubt it!

. . . spread rumors about me?
no!

. . . keep a secret if I told you one?
yes!

. . . loan me some cash?
if i had any, sure.

. . . hold my hand?
only if you would skip along with me! i really do love skipping.

. . . take a bullet for me?
well, if we knew that the bullet was going to say, hit your heart or my thigh (or some other fleshy and not really a you-die-if-a-bullet-hits-it sort of area), sure! otherwise, i can't say that i'm certain i would! but if you got hit by a bullet and lost a lot of blood, i'd definitely donate mine, because like everyone on earth can take O+ in case of emergency!

. . . keep in touch?
here i am! keeping in touch!

. . . try and solve my problems?
nope!

. . . love me?
maybe!

. . . have sex with me?
not at this point in time! i am preoccupied!

What Would You Do If I . . .
. . . cried? Feel helpless to do anything, wait quietly with you, and offer kleenex.
. . . said I liked you? Be surprised.
. . . kissed you? Be surprised, and given that it hasn't happened in a long time, probably flinch.
. . . started smoking? Be vaguely annoyed and glad you live far away.
. . . stole something? Depends. I'm not keen on people telling me they do illegal things, since we're only a few steps away from laws requiring us to inform on each other.
. . . was hospitalized? The honest, but painful answer: Think about sending something, realize it probably won't get there in time, dither until you were sent home, want to send something there, but realize answering the door would be annoying and just be silent and let you think I didn't care, until I finally mailed you a card or something.
. . . ran away from home? ?? You live alone. Why would you leave your stuff?
. . . got in a fight and you were there? Um, probably feel bad for causing it?

What Do You Think About My . . .
. . . personality? which one? :-)
. . . eyes? I don't.
. . . face? I don't.
. . . hair? People should have hair or they shouldn't have eyebrows. You never shave your eyebrows. It's not my head and I don't get to vote, but I really hate eyebrows.
. . . clothes? I assume you wear them. Whatever.
. . . voice? Sounds OK.
. . . mannerisms? No idea.
. . . sense of humor? Are you funny? I haven't noticed.
. . . choice of music? Right. Like I'm going to say anything about someone else's choice of music. But I doubt we'd want to take a road trip.
. . . family? They don't seem as accepting of you as I think they should be.

Would You . . .
. . . be my friend? Probably.
. . . tell me the truth, no matter what? No.
. . . lie to make me feel better? No. That's not a good reason for "tact".
. . . spread rumors about me? Depends. Rumors are things spread behind your back, right? That doesn't make them untrue or unkind. Hopefully I'd choose carefully first.
. . . keep a secret if I told you one? Depends on who else is affected. If it was just about you and your choices, yes. But I have been known to tell the unsuspecting husbands of friends when their wives were planning to oops them when that information was given in confidence, so other people who know me would say I cannot keep one. Secrets that hurt other people should be shared. But I don't go around forwarding things that you put up that were friends-locked or that wouldn't change anything.
. . . loan me some cash? If we hung out a lot, and it was a small amount, yes. But I am extremely miserly over all, and it would ruin any possibility of friendship if you did not return the money, so no. I'd rather buy lunch than lend you the money to buy your share.
. . . hold my hand? Sure? Can't imagine that you'd want that, but wouldn't bother me.
. . . take a bullet for me? If I got to choose, probably. I'm not sure my instinctive reaction would allow that though.
. . . keep in touch? Hey man, the ball's in your court.
. . . try and solve my problems? I think that's a stereotypical geeky thing to do. Someone tells you their problems, you debug their life. At the end they're so frustrated they don't do it again and cluelessly I can assume things got better.
. . . love me? No. Love is a myth.
. . . have sex with me? I can't imagine a situation where that could occur, but I seriously doubt it.

What Would You Do If I . . .
. . . cried?

Be very confused, offer comforting advice if I had any clue what it was about.

. . . said I liked you?
I like you too. oh, *like* like. I'd be very confused.

. . . kissed you?
Considering no one kisses me, I'd probably blow a brain gasket.

. . . started smoking?
Enh, whatever, it's your lungs man.

. . . stole something?
Depends on what and why. Some situations I'm not morally opposed to theft.

. . . was hospitalized?
If I were aware, I'd visit the hospital to cheer you up.

. . . ran away from home?
Wonder where you'd gone every now and again. If you wanted to run, you're smart enough to do it in a way we wouldn't find you again.

. . . got in a fight and you were there?
Depends on the circumstances of the fight. Break it up or support you.

What Do You Think About My . . .
. . . personality?

You are zoner.

. . . eyes?
I think you've got pretty good vision if I recall.

. . . face?
I can remember it, it's a means to identify you

. . . hair?
*shrug*

. . . clothes?
I tend not to think about clothing, what you wear has no bearing on who you are.

. . . voice?
Again, not something that crossed my mind to think about. It's another remembered feature I use for recognition.

. . . mannerisms?
Generally easygoing and amiable, with rare occurances of purposefully being annoying.

. . . sense of humor?
See above

. . . choice of music?
I've no objections to it.

. . . family?
I've only met your folks once briefly, they seemed nice enough.

Would You . . .
. . . be my friend?

I already am.

. . . tell me the truth, no matter what?
Yes

. . . lie to make me feel better?
No

. . . spread rumors about me?
certainly not

. . . keep a secret if I told you one?
yes

. . . loan me some cash?
If I have it, and you need it

. . . hold my hand?
probably not

. . . take a bullet for me?
possibly

. . . keep in touch?
about as much as I do with other people

. . . try and solve my problems?
Only if you asked for advice

. . . love me?
like a brother

. . . have sex with me?
No
From: (Anonymous) Date: July 4th, 2004 11:21 am (UTC) (Direct Link)
. . . cried?
i'd like to say that i'd hug you. i generally don't touch people without their permission, though.

. . . said I liked you?
i'd be surprised if you even remembered me.

. . . kissed you?
depends on the context. maybe there was a time when i wished you did. the last time i saw you, i shook your hand.

. . . started smoking?
recognize that as your choice and right.

. . . stole something?
depends on what it was and why. i don't think that things are so black and white.

. . . was hospitalized?
that's a tough one. i'm a bit far to visit now... if you were in a safe/stable situation and could talk, i'd get on the phone if that's what you wanted.

. . . ran away from home?
you already have, haven't you? if it were by your own volition, and if you had your reasons (e.g., if you needed some time away), i'd have to respect them.

. . . got in a fight and you were there?
if it were a physical altercation, probably panic. maybe scream or call 911.


. . . personality?
i don't know you that well. and there's always the issue of which sides of us we let which people see, and in what context.

in the jumble of my memory, you seemed to be the most comfortable in a community of friends. you're a good listener and rambler, but dislike losing your sense of control or asking for help. some would say you take things too seriously. you're good at expressing yourself in writing. you seem to go along life as if happens. sometimes you end up stuck in situations before realizing it.

you get to make your own decisions, but a part of me says that i wish you'd take better care of yourself sometimes.

. . . eyes?
strange, they remind me of my best friend in high school's eyes.

. . . face?
i remember your eyes the most.

. . . hair?
vague memories of it. it's brown. the length varies.

. . . clothes?
i remember the suit. you cut something of an imposing figure.

. . . voice?
frankly, it's been so long that i don't really remember what your voice sounds like anymore. but i do remember that it was pleasant to hear. i have the vaguest sensation of something flannel-like and lovely.

you could say the most wrenching things in the calmest of tones.

. . . mannerisms?
you always did seem so self-conscious. it brought out the worst in me.

. . . sense of humor?
what can i say? i like it. (off-topic, i loved the ask the tech girl link you posted. geeks are extremely sexy!)

. . . choice of music?
music seems important to you. i remember when you said you like floyd, back in the days of division bell. i think that's a good choice. 'fraid i'm not familiar with magdalen, but the important thing is how her work affects you, right?

. . . family?
i've never met your family.


. . . be my friend?
i would say so. but how do you define "friend?" it's such a vague term. you say that you get final say on who is/n't your friend. fair enough.

. . . tell me the truth, no matter what?
in theory, yes, of course. especially if that's what you say you want. but practice is often tangled up in too many other things.

. . . lie to make me feel better?
depends. most likely not (although i do try to be diplomatic at times). i'm not good at lying. and in your case, i haven't had the occasion to.

. . . spread rumors about me?
no.

. . . keep a secret if I told you one?
yes.

. . . loan me some cash?
yes, if i had any.

. . . hold my hand?
yes.

. . . take a bullet for me?
possibly.

. . . keep in touch?
i haven't been very good about that, have i? especially since the last time was maybe 12 years ago. then again, communication is a two-way street.

. . . try and solve my problems?
if that was what you wanted. but that rarely works, does it? no matter what they say, people usually end up resentful when others try to solve their problems.

. . . love me?
yes. in my own way. and i did. or at least the side of you that i saw + in the global sense. (part of me is being a bit defensive or realistic -- take your pick -- about my younger self's feelings.) i don't know you that well. how do you define love?

. . . have sex with me?
quite possibly. sex is more a creature of the mind than the body, isn't it?

Hmm, now I wonder who this is...
From: (Anonymous) Date: September 6th, 2004 03:29 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)

debug

[but debugging emotional issues _is_ as simple as debugging code... the most fundamental root of the problem isn't always that complicated in itself.

it's just that there are so many lines of code involved that by the time you're finished (if you ever finish, what with all the distractions and supposedly easier jobs with better compensation out there), it's already obsolete, or the hardware's obsolete, and you have to start over. or all the fixes you can think of will cause other problems. and sometimes, the supposed problem is with the hardware + mandatory porting for a cross-platform environment.

so you either roll out your buggy program (and ask your users to put up with it, which they may or may not agree to), dump it out and start over, put off roll out until you finish debugging (which could take forever, and by that time, all your users will have all abandoned ship because they need the product now now now), start over, or find new hardware.]
