Why hello there, my aquatic friend. ;D

seaside: dream job? Part-time, not helpdesk, pays enough that I don't have to worry about retirement or health insurance, less than 15 minute drive (or from home, that would be nice). Once upon a time I would've said "writer", but I know enough about myself now to be pretty sure that would be a bad idea. But I would like to have time to write when my brain's cooperative.

shells: do you have an idol? No? I have people I respect and admire for different reasons, but none that I'd put on a pedestal. For instance, Lewis and Tolkien were both rad, but I will freely admit they also had huge personal flaws.

atlantic: what is your favorite song of all time? Um. That's ... that's a really big question. I love Spem in Alium a lot, but it's also not singable. Idumea's a favorite too, but not all the time, y'know? Two Magicians is great fun to sing, but absolute favorite? Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies was the main lullaby I used for my nieces when they were very small, and I've been singing Star in the East on my walk to work in the mornings recently.

Oh! No, wait, I do have an answer:

I love this song so much. I still have the tenor line completely memorized almost 10 years after performing it. I'll walk around just singing the tenor line (and interposing other bits as needed to carry the thing along) to myself. There's no other piece of choral music for which that's true.
