Here here to Kyla's reply immediately plan, especially since I'm totally
lurking right now and have no idea when I will ever write a contentful
message again. So I should really assert my continued existence _every_
once in a while.
> Name: Kyra Jucovy
> Occupation: Student (Linguistics and English major)
> Age: 20
> Married: No.
> Children: No.
> I live in: That's NOT easy for a college student to answer. Right now,
I am in Edinburgh, UK, but I'll be spending the summer in Great Neck, NY
(my hometown) and next year will be back at college in Swarthmore, PA.
> How I discovered the list: I've known about the Chrestomanci Castle site
since I first discovered the Web, back in. . . 1997 or so. And I checked
it occasionally. And eventually there was a list. And it was cool, but I
just read the archives without actually joining. They weren't updated
for a year, and then they got updated. Right before finals, too! It
was pure evil, but. . . And then I told Kyla about it, and she decided to
join, so I figured that if she was joining, I should too.
> Favorite DWJ novel: _Fire and Hemlock_ is starting to take over my
brain, rather to my alarm. I mean, I still love _Archer's Goon_, but I'm
reading _The Golden Bough_ right now as a sort of appendage to a class,
and every single time I put the book down, I feel the need to read some of
_Fire and Hemlock_. Which means I'm rereading it at least once a day
> First DWJ novel: _Dogsbody_. _The Lives of Christopher Chant_ was my
second and was the one that actually got me into DWJ.
> Favorite authors (besides DWJ): Dave Duncan, Thomas Mann, Philip
K. Dick, Ted Sturgeon (a new one, if anyone's keeping track).
> Number of books owned: No idea whatsoever. All I know is that the rate
of increase of the number, whatever it is, is far too high for a student
with no money and no time ;-).
> Favorite musician/group: Pulp. To whose concert I am going a week from
tomorrow. I am a happy puppy.
> Non-reading hobbies: watching anime, listening to music, writing,
watching Britcoms, playing console RPGs, folk dancing, swinging.
Hamlet: "You would play upon me; you would seem to know my stops; you
would pluck out the heart of my mystery; you would sound me from my lowest
note to the top of my compass: and there is much music, excellent voice,
in this little organ; yet cannot you make it speak. 'Sblood, do you think
I am easier to be played upon than a pipe? Call me what instrument you
will, though you can fret me, you can never play upon me."
---umm. . . guess.
