Note: for this meme I am omitting Mrs Elbeno from my friends list. Otherwise it's a non-starter, really.
Hmm this meme seems like a bit of a typical “aren't I quirky?” self-congratulatory affair. Well let me tell you something, f-list: no matter how much of a rebel-against-society-norms, emo-classical-acid-jazz-loving, “my-favourite-homestar-character-is-strong-sad” type you are, there are 100000000000000 people like you (approx) out there on the Internet. That said, let's have a look at my totally normal life. I have a short f-list, so this will be easy.
Name a CD you own that you think no-one else on your friends list does.
CD? Now you're taking me back… Oh all right then, something like the Best of Sonny Boy Williamson? There's a definite chance that the Ben-n-Em-Entity has a CD very similar, but I'm betting no-one strictly on my livejournal f-list does, so that's OK.
Name a book you own that you think no-one else on your friends list does.
Fiction or non-fiction (easy)? For fiction: hmm, a tricky one; let's try Selected Short Stories of Guy de Maupassant – I think that's the one I have. For non-fiction, how about The Visual Display of Quantitative Information by Edward R. Tufte.
Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that you think no-one else on your friends list does.
Shaolin Soccer. Mrs Elbeno doesn't like it, but I think it's great.
Name a place that you have visited that you think no-one else on your friends list has.
The Isle of Skye? I doubt that has been there. What makes this list a little difficult is that my f-list includes and , which means I can't just say any old place that probably none of you USians has been, like Ripley or Abinger Hammer. Come to think of it, I could just say: my house.
Name a piece of technology or any sort of tool you own that you think no-one else on your friends list has.
Well I don't technically own this PS3 devkit on my right. But it's hard to think of anything wouldn't have. How about this: somewhere I have a thing for playing keypad tones down the phone. It's for use on old pulse-dial phones (or was, when they still existed) when dialling into a new-fangled tone-driven menu system such as credit card agencies and airlines use.
