So, this is kind of a loose concept.
The forums have been less active than they were in 2003-2008, and we've had a few new members that don't have an opportunity to post as much and/or don't come into irc, which is where a lot of the socializing/getting to know you activities happen. (/server dfx.at + #burrito, jsyk)
So I was wondering - say you meet someone and you get one opportunity to translate who you are to them with a story from your life. Which one would you tell? Why? Could you tell it here so the rest of us can munch popcorn and enjoy your tales of woe and triumph?

Go go gadget introspect, Matazone~

ETA: or 283798349 (max) stories because this is a whole thread and i love stories. stop reading the rules, half of you have cursed in posts and yet you listen to me!? bah humbug etc. :P

Oi, give us your story smile.gif

Whilst I am sure I have some stories from my life, I am not sure whether I could rely on them to define me? Whilst I ponder, I think our dear thread-starter should offer her own, so that we may follow her example.

It is tricky. I think I chose the BIRDMOTH thing because it's a story I tend to tell everyone (spreading awareness about the evilness of moths is very important!). It has absolutely nothing to do with it being already mostly written out in considerably more colourful language in a blog post. Nope. innocent.gif

And I agree...a syuu story is needed! tongue.gif

Elphaba, that sounds more awesome than pretty much anything I've ever done. I travelled by land from OR to NY when I was 18, but I did so on a Greyhound bus. Met many crazy people, but there was no chasing of deer on empty highways at sunrise. Colour me jealous! biggrin.gif

Back when I was doing Project 365 (one photo every day for a year...I got to 100 something then stopped sad.gif ) and running low on ideas, a friend recommended I take a photo of a bunch of things that demonstrated various aspects of my personality. That was considerably easier than coming up with just one story to define me!

I love you in a way that is mystical and eternal and illegal in 20 states.
