the box meme, rho variant
delirium happy
Two meme type things in a row. I'm clearly slipping. The box meme. I was going to just do it the same way as everyone else, but then I realised that I was mostly listing books, so I decided to create separate lists for books, songs, and general objects.

So, say you were meeting a new person - blind date, new friend, who knows. And you wanted them to have some idea of what kind of person you are, and who you are. But you can't actually tell them in so many words. Instead, you have to give them a box, with a dozen books, a CD containing a dozen songs, and a dozen generic items in it for them to ponder over. What would you put in the box? No cheating - you're not allowed to include things such as links to your livejournal.

Now, before I give my lists, I'm curious. What would you put in my box? No peaking and looking at my answers before you answer the poll though.

Poll #257545 What goes in the box?

What book should I put in the box?

What song should I put in the box?

What generic object should I put in the box?

I'm sure I probably could have done better if I'd spent a little bit longer thinking this through, but the list as it stands isn't bad, and I really should be in bed and asleep, so it will do.

Wow, not bad... I got two out of three! Sadly, I don't know your musical preferences well enough to guess.
Sweet dreams, dear.

Wot, no Red Dwarf?
