(memes) Posting Meme/20 Questions

There are a few memes going around of interest:

Meme The First. Snarfed from talonvaki and kyberg, with some of kyberg‘s variations.

Everyone has things they post about. Everyone has things they don’t post about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don’t post about, but you’d like to hear about, and I’ll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

Well, I pretty much write around what I feel comfortable writing about, but if you have a question, I’ll be glad to try. I reserve the write to answer the question in a post visable limited to a smaller audience.
