Posting about seven random things was actually kinda fun, so I picked up seven more from [livejournal.com profile] tsgeisel. I'll still hand out seven topics to anyone else who asks.

business cards: I used to have deliberately silly ones, but the contact information on them became outdated. I keep thinking I should maybe acquire some MOO cards, but the problem is that I'd want different ones for business and social uses, and I can't quite motivate myself to shell out for two sets.

romance novels: I actually kind of wish I could get into them, because I'd like to be able to fantasize about romance a little more, especially during periods when there's not enough of it in my life. But it seems like they're all either insufficiently realistic, or about characters who are insufficiently like me for me to connect with.

Huh. Now that I think about it, romantic fanfic does sometimes work for me, and maybe that's why: the characters are ones I do connect with, and I know enough about them that their stories are more meaningful.

I've also, interestingly enough, had good luck with parodies of romance; it's sometimes easier to get into a story that explicitly doesn't take itself too seriously, and flaws can be easier to condone when they're deliberate.

milk chocolate: Usually I prefer dark. Milk just tastes like chocolate-flavored sugar. On the other hand, I recently discovered that adding bacon can mitigate the over-sweetness quite nicely.

candles: Ohgods, did I ever use to collect scented ones. Problem was, I never really had occasion to use them; it doesn't usually occur to me to light things on fire just because I want to smell them, and it feels sort of wasteful too. Now I get my scents elsewhere.

juggling: I can do a basic three-ball cascade, and once or twice I've tried passing with a partner who's also doing a three-ball cascade. That's about as far as I've ever gotten. I can also do some really basic moves with poi and devil sticks.

masks: I made a couple of really pretty ones as art projects in junior high. I don't much like to wear masks, though; having things on my face tends to annoy me. And I also dislike being surrounded by people in masks. Masks don't always stop me from identifying familiar people, but they do hide facial expressions, which are a massively important part of in-person communication; not seeing someone's expressions as they talk feels creepy.

eyebrows: This is kinda timely. I just found out this past weekend that darkening my eyebrows a touch, together with one or two other little makeup tricks, makes me look pretty badass in a satisfyingly butch sort of way. I knew there was a reason I liked my eyebrows.
