I know everyone (well, everyone from choir) is doing that "what would you do with me if you had me locked in your house for 24 hours and I had to do everything you wanted me to" thing, but I think that's silly. If there's something you wanted to do with me, and you don't think I'd want do it and would require the condition of being locked in a house and forced to obey commands, I doubt you'd tell me about some hypothetical scenario where you'd be forcing me to do something I didn't want to.

And if you did think I'd want to do it, just do it already! If you aren't sure, that sounds like a touchy situation that you wouldn't be willing to identify yourself as having, and if someone decided to answer anonymously with this kind of situation, frankly, that's annoying, and I don't want to know.

So anyway. If we were in the real world (weird, huh?) and both of us could mutually decide to do something we both found agreeable (again, weird, huh?) what do you think it would it be?

Have afternoon tea complete with scones, jam, cream and cake, and plot on how to change the world to suit ourselves, whilst ridiculing the people who annoy us. Possibly followed by a trip to the Wheatsheaf for a few drinky-poos, then dinner, then a movie night or World Series Trivial Pursuit With Deadly Intent.

Second of all... Trivial Pursuit With Deadly Intent??? You have piqued my curiosity!
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:39 pm (UTC)
It's for people who realise that knowing lots of generic stuff is not trivial in the least, but the mark of Highly Intelligent people. Plus, people come armed with sweeties, and every time you answer a question right, the person with the same colour 'pie' as the square you are on has to give you a lolly, but if you get it wrong, you have to give them a lolly. AND! For World Series TPWDI you use several sets of cards - I have original, the 1980s version of the young players edition, a set of feminist related questions, and the question cards out of another game entirely: which cards you use depends on what number you rolled.

I wanna play!
Jan. 14th, 2010 09:06 pm (UTC)
ooooh me too! puleeeze!
Jan. 15th, 2010 01:23 am (UTC)
That sounds really interesting and i want to play too ;P

The only trivial pursuit i am good at it seems is Star Wars trivial pursuit and i surprised even myself with the amount of random trivia i know about those movies (i was aware i knew a lot, but i wasnt aware of how much ;P) when i played it last year ;P

Hmmm... should we book the CA and make a Big Thing of it?
Jan. 14th, 2010 07:10 am (UTC)
I had another part to my hands-up-while-interrupting-your-conversation-with-doctor-kate: please, oh please, oh please, have another tea party!
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:40 pm (UTC)
Plans are indeed afoot to diminish the tea supply in such a manner. Especially as Ash totally failed to drink tea last time, and Christian didn't make it and needs Seedycake.
Jan. 14th, 2010 03:27 am (UTC)
Damn you whinge about some pointless shit sometimes.

Let people have their fun. I got a lot of non-anonymous comments from people, some of which I'd actually like to make plans with. I also got some anonymous comments from people who aren't brave enough to reveal themselves, and you know what? That's fine to. It's entertaining and it made me smile.

I don't care that you don't like anonymous posts. Don't let people post anonymously if you feel that way (which about 50% of the people doing the meme did, btw).

Right now I'd slap you upside the head. Of course that probably doesn't come under the "mutually agreeable" criterion you've laid out, but you can be so repetitively self-righteous sometimes. :)
Jan. 14th, 2010 03:29 am (UTC)
Settle down Ryan. I let you people have your fun (it's not like anything I do will stop people, is it?) and you people can let me have my fun by poking my tongue out at you (and no-one can stop me from doing that).
Jan. 14th, 2010 03:31 am (UTC)
I'm just trying to point out how shallow your analysis is. :)
Jan. 14th, 2010 03:34 am (UTC)
Well damn, I guess you're right. I guess instead of writing an academic psychological analysis, I should instead make a light-hearted livejournal comment poking a bit of fun.

Wait, what?
Jan. 14th, 2010 03:46 am (UTC)
Sorry, I must have mistaken your light-hearted fun for a condescending, patronising piece of diatribe. Obviously we're taking each other a bit too seriously. I apologise.
Jan. 14th, 2010 03:51 am (UTC)
That's ok. I think you just took it a bit personally. I think the idea is silly, not the people doing it (neccesarily... ;) ). And it's not like I've never done something silly in my life. I'm just poking fun at a silly meme with a silly post of my own :)
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:00 am (UTC)
I actually agree with you to a certain extent, and hey. It's your journal, feel free to write what the hell you like :) I do >:D
But yeah, memes generally are silly and pointless. Which is why I do them when I'm bored ;P

As for that meme, what would we do...hmmm...eat delicious food, drink delicious cocktails, and then watch bad movies...possibly snakes on a plane ;P
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:02 am (UTC)
And most likely paint a microwave button over with "snake!"
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:05 am (UTC)
eheheheh. Yesssss, whiteout (or white paint) and a felt-tip pen would do wonders for the poor microwave in question ;P
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:02 am (UTC)
I think just a repeat of Monday would be great, i loved the conversation and the general atmosphere of watching Star Trek movies with someone who knows the background. It doesnt need to be those movies, but i think a series of average movies would be good fun - actually if you wanted we could probably do that, watch all the ones we didnt get to see (including the motion picture *shudders*) ;P Maybe throwing in a few board games, and yes including chess even though i know i will lose pretty much every game i play against you...:P
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:09 am (UTC)
Let's! We didn't get around to any of the TNG ones, in any case, and indeed, there are always other appropriate movies.

You know what we need to do again? Chess with you and Alistair vs me!
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:14 am (UTC)
I might try and see when Jeremy is free so the three of us can continue the movie watching and yeah the TNG and the reboot would need to be watched just for how much it screws with star trek (the stargazer is destroyed what happens to Picard then?) :P

and yes the epic chess game. Would have to pin Alistair down though...;P
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:20 am (UTC)
I have some hilarious TNG and original series episodes (the trouble with tribbles!) on VHS too that I can bring :D and yeah, definitely see when Jeremy is free!

I can't believe it's been nearly 2 years since the epic chess matches....
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:24 am (UTC)
I have TNG on dvd, so thats easy, and i know Jeremy has all four series on dvd (what with me currently borrowing his DS9 dvds)

we got a really good crowd for those games. Ive always thought it was interesting that of everything going on at the time the chess match was the most interesting for people to watch ;P
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:30 am (UTC)
ah, awesome! I'm still going to have to borrow some TNG from you.

We did, didn't we? Well, it was certainly entertaining to us, so why not to other people :)
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:43 am (UTC)
I will have to find out if we can run it at my place, if not would your place work?

Chess is typically not a good spectator sport - though i guess it was more amusing watching Alistair and i bicker over moves and watch you slowly driven insane by our antics :P
Jan. 14th, 2010 07:32 am (UTC)
My place would work, currently it's a bit of a mess because we're renovating, but the lounge can be cleaned up :)
Jan. 15th, 2010 02:59 am (UTC)
i have spoken to Jeremy and he is up for it. I will get back to you with a date (probably a saturday if thats alright) sometime in the near future...
Jan. 15th, 2010 03:15 am (UTC)
works great for me :)
Jan. 14th, 2010 07:11 am (UTC)
pat your hair, and laugh at the internet.
Jan. 14th, 2010 07:31 am (UTC)
Let's do it! Internets is teh funnies :D
Jan. 14th, 2010 09:45 am (UTC)
I felt much the same about that meme, actually... not that it was meant that way, but it was a little uncomfortable to imagine. I don't have a specific thing I'd like to do with you, but I'm sure we could have a good long conversation!
Jan. 14th, 2010 10:21 am (UTC)
Conversation woo!

It's looking more likely that I'll be in sydney for that performance, so yay to that, (face-to-face) conversations may be a possibility :)
Jan. 15th, 2010 02:44 am (UTC)
I would make you play music for me ^_^
Jan. 15th, 2010 02:50 am (UTC)
I'm always happy to play music :) anything specific, or do I get free discretion?
Jan. 15th, 2010 02:54 am (UTC)
I would have a few requests - Pirates of the Caribbean stuff or Sweeney Todd or whatever, but you would get to choose too. ^_^
Jan. 15th, 2010 02:55 am (UTC)
Can do!
