10 weird things meme

I compile this list under duress from ristin:


  1. I, too, am a dual citizen. I am a Finnish citizen by birth and an Australian citizen by choice. I hope you can tell by my wording that I value the latter more.
  2. Before I met Ristin, I considered myself too good for blogging.
  3. In general, I still consider myself too good for meming.
  4. Even though I consider Roophilia the more controversial site, The Plush Palace is still the only site for which I've been flamed. Maybe I'm just not trying hard enough?
  5. The thing I want most for Christmas is a rat-themed tie. If anyone knows where I could source such an item, they would earn my undying gratitude.
  6. Even though I never would have thought it possible, Ristin has actually managed to convince me that I have a beautiful body.
  7. I am an avid nudist, and am deeply offended that Queensland does not have any legal nudist beaches.
  8. I am the proof reader for the OpenOffice.org 2.0 User Guide, though I haven't done much work on it recently.
  9. Even though I have never contributed anything to it, and I hardly write at all, I am technically a contributor on the highly esteemed furry science fiction shared universe fanzine Tai Pan and I still receive the contributors' newsletter. Life takes strange turns some times.
  10. I enjoy walking and I'm grateful to live in a neighbourhood where I can feel comfortable going out for a walk at night. At least, as comfortable as a timid little rat can be anywhere.

I am also required to tag five other people. This tedious ritual I consider entirely non-binding and I invite the tagees to ignore this at their leisure: pappasj, nightcoon, swiftrat, plushlover and sebkha.

Finnish? Cool (quite literally, too). ^.^ Why anyone would flame you for the Plush Palace is beyond me, though.

? What exactly are we supposed to type up for this meme? What are the actual questions being asked?

The thing I want most for Christmas is a rat-themed tie. If anyone knows where I could source such an item, they would earn my undying gratitude.

I did a quick Google search for you.
I found a mouse tie.

Apart from that, here's a page on making your own tie. You could stencil or screenprint your favourite simple rat clip-art on it. You could make your own, or ask for a selection from people around you. For inspiration: http://ratart.homestead.com/

*reads the comments* Oh, cool! No one has said it yet!....

*clears throat* Ahem...

When you left Finland, did you run out of the country when you crossed the Finnish line?

*dodges rotten tomatoes* :-D

You mean, Marko showers you with such entertaining puns on a regular basis? Lucky you! Please share them with us! :-D

Yeah, it's hard to figure out what will offend people. :-P
I'm offended by their taking offense! This is an outrage! How dare they! ;-)

PS:
How can you be a nudist if you are not proud of your body? If you bare it all, can you also think that you have nothing worth seeing?

Aargh! Look! I said I love my body now. I happily flaunt it at home.

Actually I think there was a proposal for a legal nude beach in Queensland. Not sure where though.

I wish you had a nightclub in Brisbane like we have here - where you can dance and hang out naked to your heart's content!

Er, I'm not so big on nightclubs. I suspect I'd feel uncomfortable hanging out naked there.

If you knew that everyone was open-minded and that you'd be far from the only one, would you? Trust me, it's not some seedy, aggression-laced straight place - it's tailor-made for us kinky bisexuals ...!

Would you take me? I'd be too scared to go on my own. I'm contemplating visiting the UK in the next few years, so this is a serious request.

You'd seriously come here? That's great, because I doubt that Sq. or I could meet you (and Ristin) in Oz anytime soon (much as we LOVE to be in Australia) ...

Of course I'd take you to the club, I'd hold your hand, pat your brow, whatever. Trust me, after a few minutes there, you'll feel fine. I'd probably start the night in drag, but eventually strip myself. You really have to see this place to believe it. And once you've seen it's real and genuinely open-minded, you'll be in your element.
