I’m actually writing this on Sunday, but who wants two meme posts right in a row? I’ll schedule it for Tuesday. And this time, post your answers in the comments here, or the comments over at Gala’s blog, or on your own blog! I’d love to hear your answers.
Go here to discover the origin of Curious Tuesday.
1. Who is your favourite musician, NOT in terms of talent or aptitude, but based on pure sex appeal?
Do I even need to answer this? David Bowie. Everyone should know that the answer to this question will always be David Bowie.
2. What were some quirks of your past lovers that drove you crazy?
I’m going to use a single answer as a blanket: communication issues. I get the feeling that this will be one of my top 5 interpersonal annoyances for the rest of my life.
3. If there was a movie made about your life, what song would you absolutely INSIST be on the soundtrack?
Soul Love, by David Bowie. Of course. Press play!
4. What is your favourite quote right now?
Well, I’m listening to that song so at this precise moment it’s “All I have is my love of love, and love is not loving.” Aw. Also:
“Olympian gods, mark now my bedside lamp
Blown out; and be advised too late that he
Whom you call sire is stolen into the camp
Of warring Earth, and lies abed with me.
Call out your golden hordes, the harm is done:
Enraptured in his great embrace I lie;
Shake heaven with spears, but I shall bear a son
Branded with godhead, heel and brown and thigh.
Whom think not to bedazzle or confound
With meteoric splendours or display
Of blackened moons or suns in the big sound
Of sudden thunder on a silent day;
Pain and compassion shall he know, being mine,-
Confusion never, that is half divine.”
-Edna St. Vincent Millay (one of the four or five poets that don’t make me feel gross)
Also, there are a bunch in Another Country by James Baldwin, which I am currently reading, that I’d like to share, but alas I have lost the book. When (if) I find it I hope I’ll remember to pass on my favorite words and sentences.
5. Connect up with other nonpareils! Post links to your website, Facebook, Twitter, etc., here!
Um, I’m not going to do this because I am lazy and the baby wants to play. And I’d rather play with my baby than copy and paste a bunch of links.
P.S. Grady is whispering at me right now. And it is freaking adorable.
