What would you put in the box?

fromshadowcaptain:

So, say you were meeting a new person--blind date, new friend, who knows. And you wanted them to have some idea of what kind of person you are, and who you are. But you can't actually tell them in so many words. Instead, you have to give them a box, with things in it for them to look at/read/listen to/taste/whatever. What would you put in the box? And a copy of your journal or a link to your LJ would be the same thing as just telling them directly, yourself, so that's not allowed.


ok, but they don't get to keep my stuff, right? It's who I am! I will buy them their own stuff, I'm good at that...


My Me Stuff (this is *so* today...)


1. several random books of mythology, but including Jason and the Argonauts and Endymion and Selene and the Books of Invasions

2. Lord of the Rings. The underlined copy. Yes, I know they won't be able to read it, they can buy a new one for that. Faramir action figure with no paint left on the hair from repeated caressing.

3. my digital camera, and media cards of concert photography, (especially the shots of Dave Carter, Tracy Grammer and Pete and Maura Kennedy singing Crimson and Clover) and my family (chris and the birds, annaliese and bender, lee as the amadeus poster child, jim getting his hair braided)

4 My titanium G4 powerbook. There is probably nothing you can know about me that isn't in there somewhere. Check out my bookmarks and my sims... check out the links to my family...

5. a mixed cd that takes them from wyckham porteus to shriekback and back through esquevel

6. space memorabilia, starting with Yuri Gagarin, concentrating on Gus Grissom and Valentina Tereshkova

7. assortment of hand drawn cards from JIm, links to our shared stories

8. box of random anime titles featuring red haired boys

9. North West Coast stories featuring Mouse Woman and Raven. And more Raven. And pictures of ravens painted by my dear ones, or collected by them in every random corner of the globe.

10. genisoy raspberry crunch bars and splenda sweetened hazelnut chocolate and jamaican coffee. In a raven mug. on the reclining couch. with Jim. and our powerbooks.


I am tempted to make my own meme here -- if my brain had speed-dial, who would I program the buttons for. But I'll bet you can guess.
