Okay, this one is interesting:

I want anyone and everyone who reads this to post in here something they would LIKE to do with me SOMEDAY.

Then post this in your journal to see what I’d like to do with you.

  1. If I ever go to Paris, I’d like to meet you at the pendulum and wind our way to a little cafe somewhere, discussing all the conspiracies we can come up with that we’d never dare believe in.

  2. Get together and discuss old languages, compare notes, and then have a raring old time reading Beowulf per ‘s suggestion while drinking ale and mead with a bunch of like-minded and like-spirited people.

  3. This is a great idea!

  4. Stand next to you, after a day of sightseeing, as you point out to me how the city looks as the sun hits the golden Dome of the Rock near sunset.

  5. I’ll drink to that. 🙂

  6. Throw in a reading of the Descent of Inanna and LOTS OF CHEESE and that one gets my vote!

  7. Hook me up.

  8. This is starting to sound like a plan. Maybe this weekend? (‘xcept I’m busy on Saturday night)

  9. Sit down and catch up. Over a long night with much hot chocolate and other steamy hot beverages, discuss everything from politics to string theory. Well, especially geek about physics. I think there’s a lot to you — you seem like an amazing person — and if I should ever get a chance to know you better, I’d count myself honored. 🙂

  10. Descent of Inanna? I seem to recall Inanna is a goddess from one of the early Fertile Cresent/Middle East/Summerian/whatever civilizations. Is this a long epic poem about her descent into the underworld?

  11. Ooh, ooh! Yes, this would be wonderful. And I am actually going to be around this weekend, unlike the previous one and the next one. I will also be occupied Saturday night, and Friday night as well. Sunday, maybe?

  12. That would be the one, yes. Some translations/versions aren’t horribly poetic, though.

  13. Next weekend would work WAY better for me, if that’s a possibility… particularly like, a Friday night, so I’d be up in the area already without an extra trip. Though if I could borrow a patch of couch or floor and thus reduce my Monday commute, I might be able to justify a Sunday.
    (I’m such a needy little whiner!)

  14. The one I have (Diane Wolkstein’s version) is quite epic poetic, and makes for really good reciting.

  15. Next weekend would probably also be better for me. What do the rest of y’all think?

  16. I don’t know if I still have any editions; if I do, mine is probably buried very, very deep.
    Hmm… so food, drink, and ancient epics?

  17. I’d be up for that. Are you ever in the MV area?

  18. Next weekend does not work for me – I am going to be gone to Disneyland. Pooh.

  19. hm, next weekend’s also a long weekend, and the art & wine festival down here in town. So Friday still works best for me; I’d like to go to the festival Sunday… I wonder if Breakfsat Club is still going to happen? Hmm.

  20. Have a fun and thought-provoking getting-to-know you conversation. Albert introduced us once, I don’t know if you remember (my name’s Adi, it was Aleatha’s Halloween party, I was in a renaissance dress). We didn’t really get to talk then. . . but I’m unfortunately not geeky enough to be able to discuss string theory 🙂

  21. I’m also good for Friday that week.

  22. Ok, that’s two votes for Friday. Majority rules!
    (How ’bout firing up the fondue gear Yoooooonification? I’ve been waiting pa-tient-ly!)

  23. Well, if William’s going to be out of town, we could always aim for a different date. He’s the one who started this idea, after all. 🙂

  24. Hey are the epics in any languages I could read? (englishes)

  25. Sorry… we’re going to be reading the whole night in Sumerian. How are you at deciphering cuneiform? 🙂
    (I’m kidding, btw – there are excellent translations of all the things under consideration, and I believe that’s what’s being discussed. Or at least I hope so, since I can’t read cuneiform at all.)

  26. Who is to say we can’t do this twice? Save Beowulf for when William is there. There’s plenty of crusty old texts we can pore over while consuming cheese.
    It’s culture!

  27. You have a good point. What say y’all to a group dinner & Inanna at my place this Sunday PM, and Beowulf sometime soon?

  28. *thumbs up* But the Beowulf should happen pretty soonish, as I skip state in a few weeks.

  29. Well, there are several weekends coming up… I’ve got no objection to picking one for Beowulf.
    For the rest of you: How’s tomorrow evening sound?

  30. Hmm… tomorrow? I thought we were discussing next weekend. I can actually probably do tomorrow (although I probably really should be writing and essay).

  31. Can’t do tomorrow; next Friday is still best for me.

  32. Gah! Nevermind, I was thinking of next weekend. Tomorrow would be rather short notice.
