Words meme

Reply to this meme by yelling "words!", and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your journal and explain what they mean to you. Keep in mind that if I don't know you that well, your words might end up kind of esoteric/oblique.

Meme and words were supplied by rusty_armour.

writing - That's what I enjoy most. I'm not sure "enjoy" is always an appropriate word for it. Maybe obsessed would be more appropriate. Anyway, I write original fiction in a variety of genres while I try to discover my authentic voice. I think I may have found it; but it may be a little crack'd.

budgies - I am owned by one budgie now. We've cohabited with anywhere up to four at a time. Harry (a girl, short for Harrier Jet) is the product of two deceased budgies (Angel and Chiquita). Angel laid her eggs in our curtain in winter, so only one egg hatched. Harry has outlived both parents significantly. She is 10 years old. Her parents lived to 4 and 6. We also have a visiting budgie. Tweety's human companion works in another province and usually leaves Tweety with his mother. Unfortunately, his mother got a new cat who thought Tweety would make a nice snack.

science fiction - Something I watch and read. I remember reading sci-fi when I was a kid. I especially liked Asimov and Bradbury. I've read a lot; but didn't realize they were sci-fi. Also, looking back, the books I enjoyed most when we had to read them in high school were the ones that are classified as sci-fi. Oh, and I also attend a sci-fi convention; but I'll cover that below.

conventions - There has been only one (other than ones for a previous job). I have attended Polaris for the past five years. It's a blast. I attend with lazigyrl (see friendship). We've dressed up each year and it really adds to the enjoyment of the convention.

friendship - I have a few friends. I tend to stick with very few and keep them close. I count rusty_armour

    That's me. I can't believe it. I started cross stitch number five on July 4 and all the work I've done on it was a complete waste of the time. I…
