Who is Carmen San Diego really?
ehwazingwaz Posted: Tue Nov 3 19:34:48 2009 Post | Quote in Reply  
  To answer a question posed on "Who's Got the Goods"...

Who am i? that's a good question. i can, in theory, be whatever/whomever you want me to be.

*i'm a bitch, i'm a lover, i'm a child, i'm a mother..*

it goes on.

i suppose, first thing, i am random.

i found this site a couple years ago or so, and made an account, and lurked. i never posted back then, but only watched. i had some laughs. then life got crazy, and i forgot about it. i'm not sure what made me remember this place, but i thought at least this time i'd participate.

more *personal* information
1. i'm a girl
2. i live in ks, usa.
3. i enjoy weird things.
4. my hair is brown, and longer than it has been since i was...about 4.
5. i'm a college student, hopefully i'll graduate in may.
6. i want to own/operate my own bakery.
7. i'm not sure if i want to go to grad school.
8. i don't know anyone on here.
9. i have a cat. his name is bo. (sometimes his name is jerk-off, because he's a jerk-off sometimes.)
10. i am currently in a relationship (engaged) and very happy, though i do love a good motorboat (received or given) now and then.
11. i love to travel
12. i think foreign languages are hot. i also like learning them.
13. i love to write. its what i'm in school for.
14. in my fridge you will find: margarine sticks, pumpkin spice pudding, leftover peas, 2% milk, cran-grape juice, kit kats (bite size), and applesauce.
15. in my car you will find: a brown sack full of purses, a vintage wedding dress (salvation army, $5), a yoga mat, an umbrella (blue with stripes), several pairs of shoes, 5w/30 oil, and a dog leash.
16. i only wear makeup on special occasions or when my lips are chapped.
17. i don't believe in personal philosophies that involve botox, facelifts, or silicone.
18. i don't have any tattoos, though i have thought about it.
19. my hair was pink one time. it was awesome.
20. i am an only child, but i have four siblings.
21. my dad's a jerk.
22. i love babies, but i don't have any of my own. which is fine by me because that's some scary stuff.
23. i have a lot of experience.
24. if i had to choose, i'd rather that the Imperial March was played whenever I entered the room as opposed to having everyone's sex change whenever i sneezed.
25. i grew up on a farm.
26. i don't mind getting dirty.
27. i hate getting dirty when i've got on my good clothes.
28. i hate spiders, but scorpions are cool.
29. i love seafood, but not see-food.
30. i don't tan, i burn. then i tan.


some of my favorites:
The Big Lebowski
Love Actually

The Decemberists
Ha Ha Tonka
MC Chris
Ella Fitzgerald
Patsy Cline

October/Autumn
horses & foxes
all Italian foods
all seafood except sushi, mussels and salmon (i don't care how you cook it, salmon just doesn't sit well with me). swordfish steaks are the best!

dislikes:
coconut (its a texture thing)
sliced tomatoes (texture again)
spinach (unless raw or in pasta)
the skunk smell (but i can handle the worst animal-shit-smells you could imagine)
dentistry
dishonesty


i hope this answers some questions. i'd be willing to answer more based on prompts.

I love to write, too. Why do you have a leash but no dog?

Currently I am working on a short story about an interspecies relationship, and how frustrating and depressing it would be if your boyfriend was a two-ton flying lizard who lives in a cave.

And you?

i enjoy writing about "real life" situations. purely fictional but i base them on my emotions and how i perceive certain relationships. i haven't been bold enough yet to attempt to crack into the sci-fi/fantasy world, but i do enjoy writing that which is grotesque or unexpected. i'm really good at creating a mysterious fog too.

more investigation is under way.

i'm not sure why i lurked so long, i suppose i just really wanted to get a good grip on the vibe that was established. i decided to post because...i don't know (that's the honest answer). it could have been because i feel i have something to contribute, or because i wanted an unbiased opinion of things or to "expand my horizons" which sounds ridiculous but i guess it makes sense. really, i'm just looking for a good time. :)


 
Kira Posted: Wed Nov 4 01:20:34 2009 Post | Quote in Reply  
  If I had waited until I felt I had something to contribute I would never have posted at all.

good motorboat: a girl giving another girl a motorboat.

how: attend any bar known for crazy acts/patrons. have a beer. wait.

lolz. really, these things happen at the parties i throw. they are random (but appreciated) events, and everyone benefits. my friend sarah and i "tag" each other like this. we don't usually plan it, we just do it. people love it. it makes a good conversation piece. (at least)

  Greetings and welcome. I'm more of a lurker, but wandered back this evening in a Nyquil induced pseudo-coma as I battle what I'm describing as the pig-flu, if for no other reason than to do my part to spread the pandimonium about the pandemic which has yet to kill the same number of people as the normal flu, but which has still prompted our command staff to issue us face masks to use, but only cautionary as we don't want to alarm the public into thinking there may or may not be a bona fide problem warranting their attention other than whether or not Breckenridge decriminalizes marijuana which ultimately doesn't matter because its still illegal in the state and to smoke in public, a lesson I'm certain I will have to teach some ignorant ski bum tomorrow at some point during my shift.

I also have found that Nyquil seems to make me preclude the use of proper punctuation from my late night posts...

Welcome.

For what it's worth...

Are these motorboats the remote control or wind up rubber band type...and would these ladies mind if I watched the gift exchange?

kuro has a gift for writing. If this whole cop thing falls through you need to consider writing an autobiography. I'd read it.

Just out of curiosity, when you find these pot smoking offenders do you chase them down the slopes in your cop car, or strap on a pair of skis and shoot at them like in a James Bond movie?

Depends. often times they do something to prompt me to come say hi. Shouting profanity across the parking lot or giving my favorite single finger salute, which is generally an instant cue that said individual is in need of assistance from law enforcement and being the community oriented officer I am I gladly render them the assistance they were requesting.

Ironically though we do have a detail where we ski in uniform. We are suited up in our ski gear, and tactical vests, guns and all and ride the slopes. Mostly we field questions from tourists asking if we're really cops, or the ones who can't compute that we're cops simply ask why we are skiing with guns.

One of my instructors in the academy said when he wrote his autobiography of being a cop he's going to call it "Naked Men Always Fight." Cuz apparently they do...

For what it's worth...

Doesn't ring a bell but doesn't mean much. I have people come up to me in the supermarket all the time "Hey aren't you that one cop." There's only about 40 of us county wide maybe. 18 in my department so we tend to stand out.

I'll keep it in mind though if I run into him I'll say hi.

For what it's worth...

If I can survive the swine anyone can! It's pretty gross though. I caught it at the same time as a friend and we got quarantined to the same house so we tried to have a swine flu party, but we were so ill that after two drinks my friend vomited on the floor and I passed out. Win!

I hear that a lot from women.

I finally did the urban dictionary thing and discovered what motorboating is.

All I can say is that the activities between females that counts as fun these days has certainly changed from my wild youthful days (long ago).
'Tis a shame.

well being sick is never fun, and its good that you are all better (you are, aren't you?) but i suppose it was the wording you used that made sickness sound so attractive.

close but no cigar

It is said that the Roman emperor Nero liked to watch gladiator fights with emeralds. These, however, appear to have worked rather like mirrors.[2] Flat panes of smoky quartz which offered no corrective powers but did protect the eyes from glare were used in China in the 12th century or possibly earlier. Contemporary documents describe the use of such crystals by judges in Chinese courts to conceal their facial expressions while questioning witnesses.[3]

James Ayscough began experimenting with tinted lenses in spectacles in the mid-18th century, around 1752. These were not "sunglasses" as such; Ayscough believed blue- or green-tinted glass could correct for specific vision impairments. Protection from the sun's rays was not a concern for him.

Yellow/amber and brown-tinted spectacles were also a commonly-prescribed item for people with syphilis in the 19th[dubious discuss] and early 20th centuries because sensitivity to light was one of the symptoms of the disease.

In prehistoric and historic time, Inuit peoples wore flattened walrus ivory "glasses," looking through narrow slits in order to block the harmful reflected rays of the sun.[4]


sorry i don't take much stock in God, Anu, Yahweh, Zeus, Thor, Buddah, mother goddess, Uzume, Quetzalcoatl, Ah Muzencab, Tabaldak, or Musikavanhu or whoever :) But i do believe in the amazing inventions of mankind :)

I am abit of a sun hater it causes the early onset of wrinkles, blemishes, and skin cancer :)

first, it wasn't so much a statement about "god," or me projecting my religious beliefs all over the place, but more a general statement where "god" can really refer to anything/anyone, and simultaneously refers to nothing specific at all. sorry if that intrudes on how you feel about religion, but that's not the intention here. the point is, if the sun hurts your eyes, and you find yourself unable to avoid being in the sun, then you might as well invest in a pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes. or else stop staring at it.

and sure mankind has had many great and marvelous inventions, but there had to be some source from which mankind obtained the knowledge necessary for which to build things with. if you really think about it, humans are just like any other species of animals: we are born, we eat, sleep, shit, reproduce, shit some more, then we die. the only difference is that humans are capable of conscious thought and have motivations and emotions beyond those of instinct and biological (natural) behavior. and even if you do (or don't) believe in evolution, that theory still doesn't explain how humans stumbled upon the ability to think for themselves and to recognize themselves and individuals who are independent from others of their species, while at the same time realizing that they are also part of a collective society.

sure sun can damage the skin, but there are other protective methods besides just sunglasses and hats, like sunblock or sweaters. i have spent a lot of time in the sun (not because i tan all the time, please...) but because working on a farm requires some amount of time spent in the sun, with skin exposed (generally the face, ears, neck, and arms). I have a history of skin cancer in my family, so i have to be careful of how long i am in the sun, but even after years of hauling around hay bales and sweating my ass off working for my stepdad, i haven't got skin cancer yet, or wrinkles, only a few additional freckles (that have not proven to be cancerous).

additionally, if one does obtain wrinkles or freckles or blemishes, there are only billions upon billions of skin care products that one could use to help relieve such "ghastly" sights. and the trick with skin care is, if you take care of it BEFORE damaging it, it will be better off in the long run and the production of wrinkles/blemishes are severely decreased in the first place.

AND really, wrinkles and freckles and those sorts of things are part of life. it shows character, it can show joy or lots of laughter (crow's feet, etc) and can even be a physical reminder of certain events (like that one summer with your boyfriend on the beach when all is bliss and you don't care about anything else in the world because the only important thing is that he makes you laugh, etc). so i look at it this way: take care of your skin to begin with, keep taking care of it, and in the meantime, if you get any of those things, its not anything to be afraid of, but something that one should embrace as a part of life.

personally, i'd love to look like an old crone/witch when i'm old, because i'd have a really interesting face and my facial expressions horizon would be ten fold what it is now.

I suspect that's probably due to genetic disposition as anything else since it doesn't seem to bother cultures that spend a lot of time in the sun all that much.

Also it's the only natural source of vitamin D as I understand it.

That being said, I don't like to spend a lot of time in the sun either as I tend to burn in just a few mins on a good hot day. Also some of my meds cause me to get dizzy in the sun.

eep! careful! meds+sun+dizzy=no fun.

the sunlight also releases endorphins into the brain. these little guys make you feel happier overall. i forgot to mention that earlier.

I don't burn easily. I think this may actually be a disadvantage because I am more likely to forget to put sunscreen on, so even though I don't see physical evidence of sun damage later, I have still absorbed an unhealthy amount of radiation.

knowledge is socially constructed, based on the invention of language (written). therefore, any thought which has ever been thunk (thought? idk) originated in language first, and any concept/thing/person/idea/theory could not be communicated clearly if there were no (agreed-upon) language to transmit that information from one person to another. so it is entirely legitimate that a person might believe in gravity (or not), but either way, it doesn't change what gravity is, how it works, or to what it is applicable. the only thing that changes between belief and fact is... "fact" is "knowledge" and "knowledge" is constructed (invented, if you will) by the human mind through thoughts which are, in turn, originated in language. ULTIMATELY, nothing is true, while at the same time, all is true; nothing is false, while at the same time all is false. these things all occur simultaneously and this, dear, is what the universe is all about. "the only thing that remains the same is/everything changes/everything changes"

and i agree that butterfaces are icky, but there's no changing that either.

this seems that it will forever be a difficult question for some to answer. i have a hard time of it myself, even though i've come to several (very broad) conclusions that are not cohesive and do not apply to each other.

>I don't burn easily. I think this may actually be a disadvantage because I am more likely to forget to put sunscreen on, so even though I don't see physical evidence of sun damage later, I have still absorbed an unhealthy amount of radiation.

that's a bummer. i generally burn once, then tan for the rest of the summer, but generally only on my arms, because the rest of me is never really exposed to sun long enough to decide whether it should burn or tan or do nothing at all but pretend to be a reflector. i never look pink when i'm outside after i've been burned, but only after i go back into the house, and then i realize i look like a near-ripe radish. :/

i just remembered having read a vampire story this summer that reminds me of your concept. i dug out my vampire book and looked through the table of contents but further research will have to ensue before i can tell you the name of the story. and its not a vampire story like dracula or twilight or blade, but more that the vampire was a creature (less human than in tradition). perhaps my professor will remember the title. i'll ask him on thursday.

so i asked my professor and it was exactly the story i thought it was!

http://www.abebooks.com/PENGUIN-BOOK-VAMPIRE-STORIES-Rendezvous-Averoigne/1227444990/bd

this is the anthology of vampire stories that i have, and it's "Bite-Me-Not or, Fleur de Feu" by Tanith Lee. it's the very last story in the book. i highly recommend this book in general also, simply because it is full of great things, like Shambleau and terrifying things like Mindworm, and has stuff with different viewpoints like Over The River. it could more than likely also be found on amazon.

  Hello there,

I'm warm hearted, heavy drinking, curmudgeon and GT protogenos, the first one who almight JQ released on the GTverse.

The following statements are as true as they can be.

I knew addi would ask about motorboating the moment i read it, he can't resist.

I don't believe in God anymore or even Gosh his polite counterpart. If i did believe in God though i would believe that it was the product of an ancient far off civilization's internet becoming sentient and moving into hyperspace to exist due to the ability to be everywherer at once, and it uses sentient minds as memory/ hard disk space.

We're very glad to have you on board!

Mat x
