Interests meme.

Comment on this post and I will pick seven of your interests. You then explain them in your journal and re-post.

Here's what deyaniera chose:

dismemphis: I have NO IDEA what this means. I'm originally from Memphis, but I was the only one on LJ with this interest.

dva: Where I work.

E-prime: Changed my life. The English language without the verb "to be." Changed the way I write, speak and think, no foolin'.
Wikipedia entry on E-Prime here:
Online E-prime word fixer-upper here -

feel don't think!: Something about not living in my head all the time.

gapingvoid: Website of the guy who explained to me how to be creative -- -- and he also writes damn funny illustrations on the backs of business cards.

govies: I work for the Government. I'm here to help you.

persuasion engineering: Imagine a joke as a con game where you realize you've been conned when you laugh instead of when you realize your money's gone. I use techniques in "persuasion engineering," a.k.a "applied bullsh*t," to teach my class on applied humor comprehension theory.
