I'd like to sing with you, definitely, and also go to a concert/gig or maybe a play with you. And, in general, just see you more often, now all my awkwardness is gone. :)

Hmm, maybe meet you sometime, since I only know you from/via the 'net.

Treat you, and two friends of your choice, to a leisurely meal in the kind of place where they don't mind you taking three or four hours from the aperitifs to the port and brandy. Failing that, Carluccio's will do, if you can cope with Bitter Chocolate Ice Cream and strawberry.

One day, someone's going to take me up on this.

Meet you. You've emailed me before about maybe meeting up someday, but
we never have.

Okay, now I'm trying to match up names/nicknames/aliases/etc...

Meet you and talk about Chalet School books/computery type things/other stuff.
j4 From: j4 Date: September 15th, 2004 09:23 am (UTC) (Link)
'twould be good. I keep meaning to have a Chalet School gathering, I mean of CS fans who are still talking to me after the GO debacle... *sigh*

Host you for two weeks [ minimum ] in Montreal; to include, wandering around the Biodome [ beavers! penguins! piranhas! bats! sturgeon ! sloth ! database-designing porcupines! ], wandering around the Botanic Gardens given it being the right time of year, looking around the Musee de Beaux Arts [ very pretty non-European stuff of wide origin, including some amazing Inuit art ], looking at a couple of cool churches [ three-quarter scale reproduction of Notre Dame cathedral, main space done in Laura Ashley Gothic, rear chapel unbelievably Mithraic ], wandering around the trendy bits of the Plateau looking in all the second-hand CD shops, eating in lots of cool places [ multi-course three-hour Japanese, Peruvian, Russian if it's the cold part of the year, combinatorial Italian in the Village, jazz-infested steakhouse, maple ice-cream, tiny little BYOB French places, local Chinese and Italian where they know me by sight.. ] and most likely some theatre, given the likelihood of good theatre in any random two weeks here.

Coo. That sounds quite overwhelming...

(I have to ask: database-designing porcupines??)

This is possibly going to sound weird, but I'd like to have a really intense, no-holds-barred discussion shading into argument with you. So that by the end of it you'd have challenged some deeply ingrained assumption of mine and I'd have to take into account your ideas as part of my world view. And I'd have convinced you of how much I look up to you so that I could in future interact with you without being afraid of coming across as either patronizing or insulting.

I would have kept quiet, except that the meme says anyone and everyone who reads this and I have a tendency to literalism with meme instructions.

Eeek. Look, I'm 5'1-and-a-bit": nobody looks up to me unless they're sitting down. :)

But seriously. That sounds like a great idea. And hopefully you'd challenge deeply ingrained assumptions etc. of mine as well -- only fair, after all.

(FWIW I don't think you've ever come across as patronizing or insulting to me!)

I'd like to sit in a loveseat with you, with a serving of tiramisu for each of us & Ellington's 'Far East Suite' on the stereo.
j4 From: j4 Date: September 15th, 2004 09:30 am (UTC) (Link)
Swoon!

My suggestion (in your journal) of meeting and hugs now seems so simple and naive. I can only hope you think it was cleverly deliberate artlessness. :)

Hmm, I'm not sure there's anything in particular I'd want to do that we haven't already done, but we've certainly not done any of them for a long time. So, I'd like to do them again.
j4 From: j4 Date: September 15th, 2004 09:31 am (UTC) (Link)
Heheh. Heh. That sounds dirty.

Fancy a game of M**?

Lunch some point next week? :)

Sounds good to me! I was going to suggest it for this week but then I realised it was Wednesday -- [checks clock] -- I mean, Thursday already. Where the hell does the time go?
d_floorlandmine From: d_floorlandmine Date: September 15th, 2004 06:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
Something. Anything! But in real life. Possibly involving good food, or good music.

Oh, and what are you doing on 12th November?
j4 From: j4 Date: September 16th, 2004 03:25 am (UTC) (Link)
12th November? No idea. That's ages away. I don't know what I'm doing next week, I can't plan that far ahead!

General catching-up. Ideally over FOOD. (but then I just like food).
j4 From: j4 Date: September 16th, 2004 03:26 am (UTC) (Link)
Food is good. Catching-up is good, too. Come to Cambridge & I will take you to the Rainbow Café. :-)

Learn about jazz. (You did once promise me a beginner's tape, but you appear to have become more advanced since then.)
j4 From: j4 Date: September 16th, 2004 03:24 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, crikey, sorry! I had forgotten. (I remember now that I was supposed to be doing an introduction to folk for CRB, too. Why do people see me as some sort of authority? I just 'know what I like', and bluff a lot.)

Dunno if I'm more advanced, I've discovered more jazz that I like, but I'm still hopelessly insecure about whether I'm listening to the right jazz, so I don't feel like I'm in a position to educate other people. I mean, basically the first rule of jazz is that you're not allowed to understand it unless you play it, and even then it's not something you can learn, it's just a gift from the Gods of Infinite Cool. Beyond that, y'know, I could just do you a tape of the stuff I like.

Or I might ask my dad for help.

Go on a large spending spree where by some mechanism neither of us needs worry about the cost.
j4 From: j4 Date: September 16th, 2004 07:06 am (UTC) (Link)
Heh. That would be ace. How do you propose to work this? :)
