Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

Asked by [livejournal.com profile] athousanderrors:

european swallows: From Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it’s a running joke through the whole movie.

dead crabs, whizzo butter: These are two separate interests but they come from the same Monty Python sketch. Ever seen those stupid adverts where a reporter hits the street for on the spot interviews about a product? Well, apparently 9/10 British housewives cannot tell the difference between Whizzo Butter and this dead crab! It’s true (surrounding mob of housewives agree loudly)
Housewife: Hey, aren’t you that man from the television!
Reporter: Oh, yes, yes I am (looks pleased)
Housewife: You’re that horrid little man that gets those stupid women who can’t tell the difference between Whizzo Butter and a dead crab!
Mob of Housewives: Yes, so he is!
Houswife: Well if you every try that around here young man, I’ll slit your face!
Mob of housewives: Yes, yes, so we will, we’re not stupid like that.

water: I love water and I drink a lot of it. But I especially love moving water- creeks, waterfalls, the ocean... I love the sound, the serenity and wildness of it.

pointy things: Knives, swords, pitchforks... pointy things are fun. This is also a reference to Buffy and her ‘pet’ stake Mr Pointy

post-its: If you can’t have fun with post-its you’re a very boring person. They come in funky colours and have a million and three uses. Remind yourself to buy milk, mark a favourite passage in a book, inspirational quotes to stick on your wall, passive-aggressive notes for your housemates or a practical joke.

prolonging the magic: The third album by Cake, one of my all-time favourite bands. The first was Motorcade of Generosity in 1993, then Fashion Nugget, then Prolonging The Magic, then Comfort Eagle, and Pressure Chief in 2004. They released ‘B Sides and Rarities’ in 2007 which I don’t have a copy of yet, and they’re planning a live album and a studio album to be released this year. Every time I get excited about a new release from them someone is always surprised because they thought they broke up years ago. They’re based in Sacramento, California and still going strong after 15+ years. Great alternate-rock sound that has slowly mellowed with each consecutive album, very easy listening but wonderful lyrics and John McCrea has a fabulously interesting voice.
