Meme stolen from stdivine:

If you leave comment requesting a quick analysis, then I will respond to you about the following...

1. I'll respond with something random I like about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll name something we should do together.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me (or just me).
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll leave you a quote that is somehow appropriate to you.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal so you can do the same for other people.

Happy Friday!

1. Your enthusiasm.
2. No particular song/Breakfast on Pluto
3. Attend a Guggi or Gavin "event".
4. "Draw her a bowl, Guggi" (don't know the exact words used, but hopefully you'll know just what I'm referring to...)
5. Patiently answering my sometimes obscure questions about the Virgin Prunes.
6. No clue on this one. Sorry.
7. What are you studying at Uni?/ If you could have an hour long chat with Gavin, what question or questions would you most like to ask him?

1. Yay!
2. Yay!!
3. So true.
4. *GLEE*
5. Seriously, getting to talk about them with people who want to know and aren't just judging me for being a HUGE GEEKING FANGIRL?
7. I'm doing "Mental and Moral Science", which is Philosophy, pretty much. And 3 years into a 4 year degree, although no, I have no idea what I want to do with it.

And a conversation with Gavin? I'd love to ask him how he handled fighting with himself and the outside world at the same time, and why he didn't just give up. I want to know which albums [APART FROM BOWIE] he's really into. I want to ask him how he feels about God. If he still believes in love. Why he never had kids, and if he thinks he might. Everything, I'm not going to lie!

I'll just be a fly on the wall for that convo. with Gav, if you don't mind. Heee. He's bi, right? Not that it matters, but... curiousity has gotten the better of me, and you might actually know the answer to this one and not think me judging him by asking.

To be honest, every conversation with him has been incredible. He's just... amazing, and it was the conversations that really sealed the deal for me.

And he's not anything as far as I know... he's just... Gavin. He's certainly never made any claim to being bi, in 'Faculties of a Broken Heart' [the Virgin Prunes book] he talks about it a little, but there have never been any mention of boys [that I know of]. He spent the most part of his life with his girlfriend-then-wife Renée. I just think he refuses to conform to anything at all, even the stereotypes of himself. [For the 'Rejoyce' poster, the Joyce people wanted him with velvet drapes, candles, very gothic etc. and he refused, and went for the denim ensemble instead.]

*sighs* Just the thought of multiple conversations with him.... *sighs more*

Thanks for the honest answer. I'd read the bit in Faculties, and hadn't really thought much more about it until I ran across an icon of him the other day that said something about him being gay, which then piqued my interest.

There's one quote from an article:

"As the century ends, you have people like Michael Stipe saying, 'I'm not heterosexual, not homosexual: I'm sexual'. And women like PJ Harver are grabbing their masculinity by the bollix, so the whole notion of gender and sexual definition is blurred, which is how I've always argued it should be," Gavin reflects.

That about sums it up, doesn't it? And he's got it right, as usual.
