The 'Getting to Know You Meme'.
Tagged (by default) by [ profile] annella


The one which appears on my birth certificate. It's not short of anything. I haven't forgotten the 'h'. It's Katie with a 'Y'.

User/screen name and nickname given to me by my mum. It makes more sense if you know my middle name is Samantha.

Nickname which came about on a road trip I took with one of my rl!bffs back in 1999. At the time, Tristo (or more accurately, Tristan) was a player for our favourite sporting club, Melbourne Storm. A fictional conversation between Lisa and I, pretending to me Matty Geyer (another player) and Tristan Brady Smith, lead to me being called Tristo and Lisa being called Matty. For some reason, Tristo stuck. It could be because I often refer to myself as 'Tristo' in the third person. Or it might not. :) Even Lisa's three year old son, Ryan, and his three year old cousin, Campbell, call me Tristo. Well, Aunty Tristo. :P


Sometimes it baffles me how much love I have for these fictional characters. But then I watch an episode and it all becomes clear. It makes me care. The characters make me care. The cast and crew make me care.

I'm pretty certain no other television has drawn me in from the get-go as much as this little show has. It's clever, it's funny, it's totally unbelievable and I'm in love with it. I may also be little in love with Eliot, Nate, Hardison, Parker, and Sophie, and have a little crush on Christian Kane and Timothy Hutton.

The new kid on the block but I'm liking it. A lot.


Central Park, New York.
With two rl!bffs, Emma and Lisa. We spent a sunny fall afternoon in 2002 sitting on a rock, people watching. As strange as it may sound, it's one of the most enjoyable and relaxing couple of hours I've ever spent, and is one of my fondest memories.

In 2006 I spent six days in Boston as part of a six week holiday. I was on my own and spent the days exploring Boston, carving pumpkins and helping attempt to break a record for the largest number of jack-o-lanterns lit at one place (just one day), visiting Salem MA, visiting Mystic CT (home of Mystic Pizza), going to Harvard and learning that Bostonians don't pronounce the 'r' on the end of their words (a bit like Aussies) and that tragedy hit the city in 1919 when a giant vat of molasses tipped over and flooded the streets Seriously. Boston is one of my favourite places I've been and I'd love to go back one day.

It's kind of cheating because I live here but it's my absolute favourite place I've ever been so I'm including it. :P


I was so close when I was in Massachusetts in 2006 and I wish I'd taken the time to visit Maine. :(

Space Camp
It's a real place. :)

I've actually been here already but I want to go back so I can hang out with [ profile] munibunny and her family.


Yum! For those who aren't familiar with this incredible food stuff, Cheezals are a cheese flavoured snack food, a little like Cheetos, but they are in the shape of a ring. They are totally unhealthy - full of fat and MSG - but they taste so good. I'm especially fond of the mini variety.

Milk Duds
Hard to find in Melbourne, but worth the hassle.

Home-made Pizza
Something I eat too much of.


All Hell Breaks Loose Con in Sydney
Jensen, Jared, and Misha. Four days in Sydney with my friends and meeting the Js+Misha and it's just over two weeks away. \O/

RL!BFF Emma's Wedding
It's not until November so I've got a long wait!

The Weekend
Not just this weekend. Every weekend.


Winnie (Cat)
You may be familiar with her from such things as 'Winchester Wednesday'. ;P Her full name is Winchester and she's named after those Winchester Boys from Supernatural.

Chocky (Cat)
Chocky was short haired tortoiseshell (black, orange, and white) and she was a lovely cat. A neighbour found her by the railway line and brought her home when she was just a wee kitten. My neighbour wasn't allowed to keep her but I was. :) She passed away in 2005. She was 16 years old and it still makes me sad thinking about it. Chocky was named after the title character of John Wyndham's book, Chocky.

Tegan (Cat)
Tegan was an odd-eyed (one orange and one blue eye) white long haired Persian. My sister got her for her 14th birthday (I think). Tegan was your typical pure breed in her aloofness and crankiness but she also had her cuddly, snugly side. Tegan simply went missing one day in 1997/98 when she was about 14 or 15 years old. We never saw her again. Tegan was named after one of Dr. Who's assistants, Tegan.


Christian Kane
I've been listening almost exclusively to the same nine songs in my Christian Kane play list for near on two months now. I think it's love.

The Shins
Love their sound

Richard Marx
Please don't laugh. ;)


See above.

Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club play
My favourite sporting team. Just don't mention the 2008 Grand Final...


Pespi Max - Once

Pepsi Max - Twice

Pepsi Max - Thrice


Chicken on pizza.
I like chicken. I love pizza. Just not together. In fact, chicken on/in anything other than chicken is not good. I don't get it.

There's poking and prodding and people throwing cupcakes at your head. I don't get it.

The Jonas Brothers.
I'm sorry to those people who like them but I cannot for the life of me figure out who they are! Were they a band first then actors or were they actors and then became a band?


Melbourne Storm Towel Girl
You know, I'd be the one who hands the boys their towels when the get out of the shower.

Jensen and Jared and Misha Towel Girl
See above. But instead of handing the towels to the Storm boys I'll be handing the towels to the Supernatural boys.

Assistant to work!bff after he wins Tattslotto (lottery) and travels the world as a writer
I've actually been promised this job. Work!bff just has to win a couple of million dollars now.

I'm in love with this meme and I will just have to do it.

Your 'things you don't understand': YES. I'm with you on FB, I might have to put it in my meme too.
And don't even get me started on the Jonas brothers. LOL. There's even incest fic about them apparently, and I was recently scarred for like while stumbling upon one...I just. Can't handle their faces.

From: [identity profile]

I enjoyed completing it but it probably took me longer than necessary. ;)

It's not that I dislike the Jonas Brothers. In fact, I honestly have no idea what they do. I've never heard them sing, I've never seen them in anything but I know they are very popular. I've tried in vain to find out how it happened but I can't work it out. XD

From: [identity profile]

Oh okay. But I noticed lately that bands with brothers in it seems to be liked a lot. And there's a bunch of fanfiction written over them.
Kinda like the Tokyo Hotel...I don't like them, but I kinda understood the appeal when I saw the singer. ANd btw, I was SURE it was a girl, not a boy ^^' I still have doubts.

I wish you could visit too... Just as much as I wish I could go to Melbourne to see your hangout. :D

It's weird how Supernatural and Leverage have sort of taken over so much thinking time, huh? What would we do without those shows?!

I am so jazzed that you get to see the boys (all three of them) in a few weeks... OMG, DAYS!!! Remember to touch the fuzzy arm hair for me, right? And I want to know if his eyes are really as green as they appear. Oh, and there's that thing about the smooching.... Highly encouraged (with or without stuffed pickle).

BTW, I've been fighting with facebook for the past couple of days. Didn't figure out (until 3 am) that if I tag someone in a video, it appears on their wall. hahaha! Those freaky aps drive my crazy so I save them all up until they practically take up the entire wall. LOL Lame!

Someone pointed out yesterday that the Jonas Brothers never smile (beyond the slight little smirk we might see once in a while). Of course, that led me to waste at least 20 minutes on google, looking for that one pic of a real smile. Sadly, there were NONE! What's that about?

From: [identity profile]

One thing I really like about being just that little bit obsessed with Supernatural and Leverage is how they balance each other so nicely. Supernatural is thinking and angsty whereas Leverage is so much lighter and yet they are both so entertaining and funny and have characters made of awesome

I'll try to remember to touch the fuzzy arm hair. However, it all depends on my capacity for thought at the time. I have feeling it will be tough enough for me to remember to breath let alone do anything else.

HeeHee! The Stuffed pickles! How do they ever get anything done with those two on set?

I think it's the all the apps that drive me crazy on Facebook too. You get sent random ones and I don't understand what half of them are for. *facepalm*

The Jonas Brothers don't smile? Interesting and kind of strange. Wonder why that is. And yeah, I may have googled pictures of them to... ;)

From: [identity profile]

I don't really see the appeal in facebook either. I made one just to appease my step-son who begged me to. Then certain people who I have issues with found me and now I'm hiding from it. I only talk to him and his boyfriend anyways and I can do that in person.

Is it okay if I steal this meme? For some odd reason I have become obsessed with them and do them every chance I get.

From: [identity profile]

I think Facebook has it's uses. I've caught up with a few old friends through it but I certainly don't feel the need to hang out on there all day. I've got LiveJournal for that. :D

Steal away. :) I don't do them very often but this one appealed to me. I kind of modified but adding more information that necessary. ;)

When are you going to visit Michigan?!?!?!?!?! Come during hockey season & we'll go to a game.

Supernatural, Leverage, & Castle are the Trifecta of Awesome in my book.

FB & the "Jo-Bros" (gag)...I don't get them either. I must be getting old (or else they just suck).

From now on, the threesome of Jared, Jensen, & Misha should be referred to as the Js+M or J2M. *grin*

When are you going to visit Michigan?!?!?!?!?! Come during hockey season & we'll go to a game.
Sounds great! Only one problem I can see with that - Hockey season is during winter, right? Your winters are really really really cold, right? ;)

We've been spoiled with new shows this year... and the awesomeness of 'old' shows. :D

I must be getting old...
Me too. *nods* But I think there is a certain amount of suckage too. ;)

If I don't mention the 2008 World Finals, can I laugh at Richard Marx.

And, hey, throwing cupcakes at people is fun!

From: [identity profile]

OK. You can laugh at Richard Marx, but only because you're not going to mention the 2008 Grand Final. ;P

There's poking and prodding and people throwing cupcakes at your head. I don't get it.

Yeah, I don't get it either. FB = LAME.

TBJ were a band first and then they became actors. :)

Central Park sounds sooo beautiful. I want to go so bad.

And homg, J2/Misha Towel Girl sounds like an AWESOME job. YES PLEASE.


From: [identity profile]

TBJ were a band first and then they became actors. :)
Thanks. I've never been able to figure that out. So, they were a band and I guess Disney saw them and the rest is history. And now they have a 3D movie coming out (or is that Miley Cyrus). Are we going to see it as Team!Shortbus? XD

Central Park is an awesome place to hang out.

There's probably the need for at least a couple of towel girls for J²+M. Plus backup towel girls. Can't have the boys running out of towels, can we? XD

From: [identity profile]

You're welcome. Yep, Disney gets all of them, woe. D:

Oh GOOD GOD NO. LMAO! Katy! How could you suggest such a thing? I'd never watch anything with Horus in it, f'reals. *shoots her in the face*

LOLLL, true that! Seeing as how JPad sweats like a mofo in Winter let alone Summer!

PS: Hannah said it was okay to use her icon for our t-shirts! And the font is Marcelle Script from if you didn't know already. :)
