manawolf has tasked me with naming ten things I love that begin with Q. I think I've managed it.

  1. Queen - A Night at the Opera
  2. Quick traffic
  3. Quizno's Turkey Lite (which they don't list on the menu anymore but I can get it by asking for turkey on wheat with red wine vinaigrette)
  4. Quiet moviegoers
  5. Quotable movies
  6. Quart of freshly-squeezed Tropicana orange juice (*not* from concentrate. The concentrated stuff is just *nasty*.)
  7. Quacking ducks
  8. Q from Star Trek
  9. Q5's theme music by Spike Milligan (a friend sent me an mp3 of it; Spike goes crazy, jabbers and whales on a piano, and yet it's all tuneful somehow)
  10. Questions I can answer


If you'd like a letter to do this in your own LJ with, please ask for one in a comment. If you post a comment but don't specifically ask for a letter, you won't get one, and THEN where will we be?! HUH?!? That's what I THOUGHT!!

Ahem so anyway, how 'bout that alphabet, eh? Boy it can sure spell things!

You can try X if you want to. If that's too hard, you can use D.

You get E.

And that's an interesting article!

How about the letter Q itself? When I was a young lad in school, that and Z were my two favourite letters of the alphabet. Why? Because I was definitely an "iconoclast" (ok, an uber-geek), and I went for the unusual! Well, maybe some of the other letters too, but nothing near the top of the frequency list! No sir, no "e"s for me!

Well, if you were to give me an "E" in response to this, I'd answer, but it isn't my favourite letter! No sir! Go pout in the corner all you want, e, but you can't, because "pout" doesn't have an "e"! Ha-haaa!

Q5 (and sequels) was a wonderful, wonderful show. I wish they'd release it on DVD (what remains of it, anyway).

PUT HER IN THE CUR-RY!

You love quiet moviegoers, eh? Coming from most people, that would automatically imply simply an absolute preference for them over noisy moviegoers. Coming from you, it may suggest a fetish. "Hey, there are other people in this theater... and they're not making a sound! I'm gonna hit on 'em!"

There's an idea... silence porn! Stories of people having sex without making a sound.

"'Have a seat,' Jobeth said, gesturing to the dinner table, 'and I'll get you some tea.' John and Sarah thanked Jobeth and sat down with warm smiles on their faces. Jobeth turned to the counter. She set out two teacups on saucers, and picked up the teapot and poured steaming chamomile into them. She turned back to place the teacups on the table... and suspected that something was up. John and Sarah's clothes were disheveled, a sock and a pair of panties were lying on a nearby chair, and they were enjoying a cigarette together."
