Apparently, the party was over [Apr. 29th, 2009|04:22 pm]

Wow, I did the "ask me one question" meme, and they were all so...tame. Polite. I was hoping for some tough ones, something to keep me from being bored by work.

You guys are probably all bored by the meme.

If an ego falls in the forest and no one cares, does it make any noise? ;-)

If your ego fell....

Hey at least someone asked you something... That is why with mine I asked people for interesting questions. Yeah, no one wanted to know about any of my kinks either; ) Don't feel bad, at least people wanted to know something anything about you!

If I did the meme, I don't think that many people would respond :( I'll try to come up with something "interesting"...

If an ego falls in the forest, can anyone get out of the way?

Sure. Depends on the size of the ego and how many ripples it throws out, but lots of people don't even notice.

Nah, s'ok. I was just letting my own insecurity slosh over the side a bit. :)

My family is New English and I was feeling too polite to ask the questions I had. (Little did I know this was a probably a symptom of the stomach flu which hit me like a Peterbuilt early this afternoon.)

I promise to be less reticent next time.

I didn't want to ask anything I would not be willing to answer myself, since that hardly seems fair. Besides, I used my one shot; can't do anything now.

When Ferrett posted that meme, my evil side was gleeful: "Oh, yes! I'm going to come up with a question that will really sock it to him!" Then I found my polite side won out, since I'm hesitant to ask questions of others that, like you said, I wouldn't like to be asked myself. Also, I think people held back with Gini and Ferrett probably because they didn't want others to think they were jerks for asking too intrusive questions, even if they were given carte blanche.

I wouldn't be comfortable asking someone the sort of question where if they turned around and asked me I would not want to answer. (besides, I really was curious about the name choice; such things usually either have an interesting history or are personal-yet-not-revealing)

Okay then - do you feel you overanalyze or underanalyze your friendships, and how so? Either answer is good, and both answers are fair (as long as each is explained), but neither is not. :)

Technically, that is only one question!

Mostly I underanalyze, I think. Once I think someone is a friend, I tend to just accept that and enjoy it. I tend to be sort of oblivious to things.

Of course, if that causes me to blunder, I will go into overanalyzing mode, which I'm very bad at, and drive people crazy for a while. But it fades - I have a short attention span for emotional angst.

Hey, you actually get responses. :) Of course you actually make journal entries regularly, seem to reply to comments promptly and have a social life outside the internets...

Don't feel bad - I posted the meme, and even with screened comments and responses, I only got three questions. :(

But as a percentage of questions to people who list each of us as a friend, we're pretty close to identical!

Perhaps the problem is that you've already answered most of the questions people want to know. At least I like to tell myself that, since I only got a single response for mine...

Or, perhaps some are to tongue tied to ask what is on their mind...

I was at a Neil Gaiman event, he got questions on paper and answered some. The first one he chose was, "how are you"?

Contrast that with the fortune cookie that said "ASK YOUR MOM". In bed? Eew.
