1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

[livejournal.com profile] mara_sho's questions to me:

1 - What's the one thing you can't live without?

The Internet. Oh my addictions...

2 - Favourite ice cream?

Haagen-Dazs's White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle

3 - Funniest joke you know - and why you find it funny?

It's actually more of a bit than a joke and it's from Red Dwarf:

Spoilers for Red Dwarf Series VIII )

If I simply say "Do you know what happens when a Tyrannosaurus Rex eats cow vindaloo..." to my roommate, she bursts out into uncontrollable laughter, no matter what the situation.

4 - What's been the proudest moment of your life so far?

Pride and I don't get along. I tend to have it when I ought not to and it abandons me when I'm totally deserving of it. No moments, then, but I'm extremely proud of my website and the progress it's made from a tiny Angelfire page to what it is today.

5 - Is there a book that you will reread time and time again no matter how often you've done so in the past?

1984 by George Orwell. Hands down. Brilliant, brilliant book.

About, oh, two months ago, I ordered all the Season 1 Farscape Starburst Editions from Amazon.com (I had ordered the other three seasons direct from ADV Films on sale). They told me it would be a few weeks, but the far end for shipping was put at July 9th and I figured it was a reasonable time to wait.

Today, July 10th, I got an email from Amazon informing me that there will be a slight delay in shipping and that my sets won't be shipping until... wait for it... December 2007.

Fine, whatever, I'll order them used. No joy. They're apparently out of print. Starburst Season 1, Volume 1 is going for $130. What in the name of whatever makes Amazon think they'll have an out-of-print Season in stock in December? Why not just tell me they can't fulfill my order?

Even then, I'd be pissed off, though, because I'd have Seasons 2 through 4 and no Season 1.

Anyway, I canceled the Amazon.com order and bought the sets through Half.com. Mind you, my last Half.com experience left me with no actual movie shipped, but I'm willing to hedge my bets here.
