LOL! Big Grin It's not just annoying because of the invasion of privacy -it's that, for the last 3 years, I've been asked some questions on a daily basis, I exagerate not. I'd say 1 out of 5 customers asks at least 2 of those questions, and 4 out of 5 taxi drivers.

(As for the translation ones, I always wonder why people feel like they can patronise me about MY job. I wonder if other people get the same with their careers...)

So why "Masque?
It goes back to my BBS days (yeah I'm that old)... I couldn't always go as "Unicorny" and a screenname is merely a mask that we show the internet world and the dance of words that we must use to convey feelings and thoughts.. so it is a double meaning.. a disguise, and a dance.. thus "Masque".. and it is also a cool character name...

Why all the elipsea (...)?
sometimes I get tired of punctuation. Standard punctuation really doesn't.. fit.. I am more a "stream of conscienceness" type person... and the elipse reflect that...

Stats?
Texan by birth and nationality/41/female/blue green hazel eyes, reddish/blondish/brownish hair (natural)/ freckles that are merging into interesting patterns/very happily married/wiccan/now residing in Columbia, South Carolina, USA

Are you REALLY a WTCH?
Yai...

Do you do "witchy things"?
*eyebrowl raise* If you mean "do I dress in black with a pointy hat, have a black cat, eat babies, go on nightly flights on a broomstick, poison wells, turn folks into frogs (or newts.. "A newt? I got better."), live in a gingerbread house (interesting concept), dance naked in a circle and worship "the Devil"".. only a few of those are true.... yai, I do have black cats, sometimes I do dress in black, I have a pointy hat I got as a gag for one All-Hallows (really cool has raimbow stars all over it!).. but for everyday wear I wear a ballcap... or a bandanna.. children love me and no, I don't eat babies... I really wish the "broomstick" myth was true.. can you imagine the gas that would save???? not to mention, I could go visit my friends easier.. but nope.. I do have a broom that is handmade from birch twigs and has an oak shaft, but it resides on my wall. I also have a set of antlers above my door.. as tempting as it is to want to turn someone into an amphibian.. transmutation spells don't work in that fashion.. we strive to change ourselves and though our actions change our world.. I will on occasion be skyclad (nude) in a circle.. but only during times of special need.. and the "devil" as concieved in Chritian mythos is not in my pantheon and thus, not worshiped.. I worship Old deties.. but they are Celtic.. not Semetic or Zoarasterian.. oh and I do not poison wells... I am in a nature religion.. poisoning the Mother is a bad thing... although the concept of living in a house made of gingerbread is fascinating.. it isn't practical.. especially here in South Carolina.. the roaches and ants (not to mention birds and other critters) would have that house eaten before the sun rose on the day after construction was finished.. I have no desire to awaken inside an anthill, thank you very much... I do study herbology and I am a Healer.. among many many MANY other skills..

SPELLS?!
Sigh.. yai.. spells.. a witch's spell is truly nothing more than focused will.. "a prayer with props" so to say.. Witches work with what is called sympathetic magic(k), the belief that "like attracts like".. we have items that help us focus our "energies" give us a stronger picture of what we want to accomplish.. similar is done in faith healing and in churches.. *shrugs* it is really not that mysterious..

Can you cast a Love Spell?
Not in the manner you might wish.. a love spell only helps the person find love, by making them believe that they are worthy of love.. there is no spell that can make you "desirable" to everyone of the opposite (or same) sex.. We have a saying: That which you seek you find not inside yourself, you will never find it outside yourself.. meaning that if you cannot find love within yourself, accepting the love of another is impossible.. so you wouldn't know it if it did show up..

C'mon! I'm Desperate!
obviously... but the answer is still no..

Fine. Ok, How did you get onto the board?
via computer... j/k.. Hubby got me into Neil Gaiman through the comics.. I read Good Omens and liked it, but that was before the Internet was really up beyond emails.. Then a couple years ago, he came upon the message board and told me about it. been here ever since.

Why do you stay?
like minds.. a sense of "family".. folks here are what I call "above par".. the basal line of what seperates a being of homo sapiens from "homo sapiens superious.. we are an abnormality to this world.. we think in concepts that are not viewed or concieved by the accepted "norm"... and I like these people...

Is everything a joke to you?
Nigh of it.. I learned a long time ago that life is too short to be mean or have a stormcloud as a companion.. I feel that it costs nothing to be kind to another.. to be helpful and to be happy.. it also brightens another's life to know that "someone" cares..

What is the SCA?

Where do you live?

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Wow, Neil lives there, right?

No, Neil is a Cheesehead. He only visits to scrape off some of the cheesy goodness (and get a haircut).

It's really cold there, isn't it?

No, it's balmy even in November, Aitapata will confirm this. All our igloos have melted and right now we all live in holes in the ground. At least they're 'green' and politically correct.
We're big on that.

It says you have no front teeth....why?

It's all Dweller's fault.

How did you find the Board?

I did the whole Pratchett/Good Omens things, and then bought American Gods at the airport. Didn't connect the two until I got home. I was assimilated because of a certain "Is a blowjob on my birthday too much to ask?" thread.

I realized that these are My People.

And they have llamas.

You used to be Old Fart. How old?

Older than dirt, next question.

Dogs or cats?

Either. Both. Vegetarian option?

Pie?

is a blessing. Crème brulée is proof that there is a God.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Grow up?

Murphy... so are you Irish?
No. Murphy is derived from Murphy's law, a medieval contraction of 'Morpheus' law', which applies to logic in dreams, that if you think of something that can go wrong, it will.

so, you're a massage therapist.
Statement. One-love. True, though. I've led a fairly random career path, of which this is my latest branch.

does anyone ever ask for extras?
No.

... *waggles eyebrows*
No.

... really?
Really. No.

But i bet it helps with the ladies.
Another statement. Two-love. Answer is sometimes.

so what's the deal with Mischief and you?
We're the same poster.

so, do the two aspects represent some comment on the dualistic nature of mankind, a philosophically abstruse concept, perhaps?
Stop using long words to sound clever.

Well?
No.
Back in the day, I invented Mischief as a joke because i gave Circus a present of a teddy bear, and by degrees it became a real polarbear. Then my Murphy account went AWOL. People do tend to respond differently to the two on occasion, but essentially i change my avatar on a whim.

Does anyone ever ask for extras?
Repetition... Game and match!

So... how do you pronounce your name?
it rhymes with "save"

Mauve, who's your favourite author?
It's M-A-E-V-E, there's no U in there, I am not a colour.

yeah... So, Mauve, who is your favourite author?
Terry Pratchett

Why aren't you on his message board then?
I was, years ago. It didn't seem a very welcoming place. Please remember that this was years ago and my personal perception. I knew Neil Gaiman existed and did Sandman, but I never read those - I read Good Omens, way back when it came out in paperback the first time.

So you never read Sandman then?
Nope. Both my roommates (1990, lived in Philadelphia) read and collected the comics, so I know vaguely what it looks like, but honestly I don't have a clue.

Knitting? Really?
Yup. In my soul, I am an artist and designer. In reality it rarely comes out the way I wanted and expected. It seems like I am a maker of useless crap that people say they adore but will never pay for.

Cooking and baking? Why don't you have proper recipes?
I like to experiment. And it's very satisfying to me when I get to feed many people. If I ever do visit any boardies offline, you can expect food Smile

So wait...Your name isn't Matt?

Nope. It's David. I wanted a Sandman related name when I registered. Sandman, Morpheus and Matthew were already taken. I'm getting used to people calling me Matt at mini-meats.

And you're an engineer? You read?

Yeah. Chemical engineering. And some of us do read. Despite what my old professors said, I'm not a Republican chemist. I do material R&D for an automotive supplier and the longer I work here the better I feel about owning a Toyota.

Really? You read?

Yes. I fell in love with Sandman. Ramadan was my first and I devoured the rest that month.

That's a comic. What about books?

I've read most of Neil's books, Lord of the Rings, George R.R. Martin, most fantasy. Where the Red Fern Grows was a childhood favorite. I cried at the end.

What about your fossil trips? I like archeology too!

Archeology is the study of ancient people. Paleontology is the study of ancient life and fossils. I like both, but fossils are my true love. A trilobite's relatives don't care if I dig up his remains.

Have you found anything cool?

Intresting, sure. I found the second known specimen of a 360MYO echinoid. It's a distant relative to starfish and sand dollars. I've also found quite a few trilobites and can clean them in my basement now. Amy calls them dead cockroaches.

Where do you find them?

Limestone quarries, river banks, road cuts. I'm usually staring at my feet when I'm walking a beach. I've hunted in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Ontario, North Carolina, Florida and even Scotland. No T-Rex yet.

You're shorter than I expected?

Yeah. 5'5". Been the short kid all my life.

But you're still young.

Not as young as you think. I'm 31 and still get carded. I fight to get respect in the office when someone meets me because they think I just graduated college. Someone thought I was an intern this summer. No. The 6'2" kid is the intern and reports to me.

I hear you have a Coke habit.

True. I drink at least one Coke a day. Coca-Cola that is. I need my caffine. It's my only vice. I'm sure my heart will explode some day. I hope it's not too messy.

So, have you ever seen a ghost?
I think it was a ghost. I was in that state of almost being alseep, but I rubbed my eyes repeatedly and the darn thing kept being there. I pulled the covers over my head and when I peeked out it was gone.

How about a UFO, ever seen one?
In the strictest sense I did see an object which I could not identify. The only thing I can figure was that it may have been some small, one-man craft, powered by a lawn mower motor, a fan, and a black disc shaped balloon.

What do you think of vampires?
I like them, but the knee licking is a bit much.

If you could transport yourself to a fictional place, where would you go?
Hmm, there are so many places I would like to go, but as of right now I would like to be aboard Dan Simmons' The Terror for its doomed Arctic Expedition.

Wouldn't that be a dangerous and uncomfortable place to be?
meh.

Fascinating! But seriously, how do you feel about life in general, where you are, where you are going, that sort of thing?
I feel like so much flotsam and jetsum, like I'm just being carried through existence by unseen forces. Just kidding! Right?

What brought you to the World's End?
The story A Murder Mystery. After I finished it I thought it was probably the most perfect story I'd ever read. I still favor it.

But why do you stay?

Oh, btw, my surname was shared by a confectioner family from where I come from who named a chocolate bar after them (now owned by Cadbury Frown).

So I got that too as a kid, plus "Are you related to the people who make ****?".

Nope. Typically a professor will study and describe the specimen. If it is new, he/she can name it after the person who found it, their favorite author or their pet, but you can't name it after yourself. Here's my original post with pictures.
