Man in a box.

Unremorsefully appropriated from zoo_music_girl.

So, say you were meeting a new person – blind date, new friend, who knows. And you wanted them to have some idea of what kind of person you are, and who you are. But you can’t actually tell them in so many words. Instead, you have to give them a box, with a dozen things in it for them to ponder over.

What would you put in the box? No cheating – you’re not allowed to include things such as links to your livejournal.

1) A jar of garlic-stuffed olives and a block of feta.
2) My PowerBook G4.
3) Evan. And some food to keep him alive.
4) A bottle of purple, metallic glitter.
5) A small jar containing soil from the battlefield of Culloden.
6) The hand-made Cranes lyric book, ‘Till the Stars Shine’.
7) A brick of books from Charles de Lint, Lord Dunsany, and Howard Zinn.
8) The tiny, articulated skeleton of a fragile, lovely faerie.
9) A faux-fur pillow that smells of vanilla, sandalwood, and cinnamon.
10) A nice bottle of Sangiovese or Dulcetto from the mid-1990s.
11) 40 Gigs of music from my hard drive. Really. That says it all.
12) A bundle of dreadlocks made of one from each of my friends that have them. And one of my own around tied around the middle.
