After thirteen years of nonexistence, so to speak, Bordertown is back, in all its grimy, sparkly, fantastic glory.

I first traveled to Bordertown via Emma Bull's Finder, many years ago. I've yet to find my way back, but I'm hopeful that, now, I will be able to do so. Care to join me?

[livejournal.com profile] elisem is having a clearance sale over at her LJ for the next couple days. Right now stuff is 20% off, and will go down 10% each day, until 50% is reached. And on the final day, well, interesting things tend to happen when the Lioness has sales!

So, if you want to come help the Lioness celebrate her birthday, or find yourself--or a special someone--a pretty shiny or two, or just want to drool at all the fantastic jewellery, head on over.

Age: Uh...let me ask the husband! *asks* Okay, twenty-eight.
Where you grew up: Colorado Springs, Colorado

1. A body of water, smaller than a river, contained within relatively narrow banks: A crik, creek, stream, brook, or rill.

2. What the thing you push around the grocery store is called: A shopping cart, cart, buggie, buggy, or trolley.

3. A metal container to carry a meal in: Lunch box, lunch pail, or lunch tin, depending on the shape.

4. The thing that you cook bacon and eggs in: Cooking thingie? Or frying pan, I guess. Usually I just point at it and use it, not name it.

5. The piece of furniture that seats three people: A couch, though I've heard folks call it a divan and some other weird word I don't remember.

6. The device on the outside of the house that carries rain off the roof: Eaves or gutter.

7. The covered area outside a house where people sit in the evening: A deck. Or a porch. Or a step, if it's really tiny.

8. Carbonated, sweetened, non-alcoholic beverages: Soda or sodapop.

9. A flat, round breakfast food served with syrup: Pancakes or griddlecakes. Or latkes, for the potato version (yummy!).

10. A long sandwich designed to be a whole meal in itself: Sub.

11. The piece of clothing worn by men at the beach: Uh...I don't think I call them anything at all, not being a guy. Sorry!

12. Shoes worn for sports: Tennis shoes, tennys, or tennies. (Now that I'm in Canada, folks seem to call them "runners", and that always tends to confuse me.)

13. Putting a room in order: Cleaning up. Or straightening up if it's just a little bit of stuff, not a huge mess.

14. A flying insect that glows in the dark: Firefly or lightning bug.

15. The little insect that curls up into a ball: Pill bug.

16. The children's playground equipment where one kid sits on one side and goes up while the
other sits on the other side and goes down: See-saw or teeter-totter.

17. How do you eat your pizza: From the skinny part. Leaving the crust behind (it's too dry and icky...darn texture issues!).

18. What's it called when private citizens put up signs and sell their used stuff: Garage sale or yard sale. (And boy is it confusing up here, since most of the garages seem to be detached, so most of the garage sales tend to be in back alleys rather than right off the street like I'm used to.)

19. What's the evening meal? Dinner, the times we bother to eat it.

20. The thing under a house where the furnace and perhaps a rec room are: A basement, I suppose. Sometimes a crawlspace, if it's dinky.

21. What do you call the thing that you can get water out of to drink in public places: Water fountain.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Canada. I am already a Canadian permanent resident (and US citizen), and will be applying for Canadian citizenship later this year (and after I've gotten said citizenship, I plan on renouncing the US citizenship if possible). Over all, I simply prefer living in Canada.

[livejournal.com profile] elisem is having another Shiny Sale over at her LJ. She's got some absolutely amazing stuff up at the moment, including tons of earrings that make me wish I could wear them (and which might actually be a possibility, given some of her suggestions).

Have a wander on over, and see if anything catches your eye! (Too much has already caught mine, as usual!)

[livejournal.com profile] kythryne, of Wyrding Studios, is having a fourth anniversary sale this weekend. She's got some absolutely amazing stuff on sale, as well as a whole bunch of really cool stuff she's done just for this anniversary.

Her work is amazing--she's one of my favourite jewellery artists ([livejournal.com profile] elisem is the other), and I can't think of anything she's made that I haven't adored.
