The Gates of Horn and Ivory

Two Gates the silent House of Sleep adorn; Of polish'd Iv'ry this, that of transparent Horn:
True Visions thro' transparent Horn arise; Thro' polish'd Iv'ry pass deluding Lies.

    1. What is your birthstone and do you wear it? Do you care? Seeing as how I don't know what it is, I don't think I care.

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever? I don't value any material object higher than others. Except maybe my computers.

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually? Awful.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?) Chilling online or watching TV. If my roommate is trying to sleep I go out to the beach and sit in a chair watching the stars and listening to the waves.

    1. What is your birthstone and do you wear it? Do you care?

    ...No idea. People tell me it's a pink stone of some sort, but I honestly couldn't tell you. Put me under "Don't Care," I guess...

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?

    I guess that would be my insulin pump, without it, I'd either be still on injections (which is an absolute nightmare) or dead. I'm hoping I won't need it forever, but that's up to the scientists, isn't it?

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?

    Couldn't say...I have very little experience with kids...I'd probably say no.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)

    When I'm on my computer listening to music and "surfing the web." There's just nothing better than shutting the world out for hours (or days) at a time...

    I haven't a clue what my birthstone is. Suffice to say, I don't wear or care!​

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?
    My most prized thing is my music collection. I own over 400 records/CDs/tapes which isn't particularly a lot, but I'm young. It's growing every week. Whether I have it forever remains to be seen. I could never imagine selling it in it's entirety, but who knows what the future holds.​

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?
    I think I would, yup.​

    4. What is your favorite "you" time?
    Lying on my bed listening to music and reading a good book.​

    Sardonyx. And I wear it in RO. XD

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?
    As of right now, it's probably this silver necklace I got from my aunt who's possibly terminally ill now.

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?
    When I'm ready, yes.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)
    All of the above and listening to music.

    I used to know my birthstone... Never worn it though. And no, it's really not all that important to me.

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?
    Um probably at this point my truck, I don't think I could live without it lol. And yeah, I do plan on keeping it even if I get something else in the future because it's old and in better shape than 80% of those trucks on the road, and has fresh guts so it should run forever if I take care of it.

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?
    When I am ready I believe I will.. I think I was exposed to so many more different kinds of people than my parents were and know how to deal with them and what to expect out of people... I usually am good at putting my ear to the ground for information gathering, and I figure things out pretty quickly (as far as people and situations) by mannerisms, story inconsistancies, or what I know is just plain BS but keep a poker face and make them mess up :p

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)
    If I'm stressed or bored, I drive. It calms me down. Just to relax, I like to sit in front of the computer on myspace or message boards or whatever is interesting, or watch tv or play Oblivion on Xbox 360. If I'm depressed, I clean my room or truck, or work on something outside (motorcycle, ATV, whatever I can tear apart). I ish teh weird.

    Whoa, that was long.

    Amethyst. I've never worn it, but I used to have a couple of crystals lying about. Not sure where they are, and I'm not really sure of what significance it's meant to have.

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?

    Materially tis probably my guitar. I'll probably sell it some day when I get a new one, but it's my first guitar and I've spent an awful lot of time playing it over the years, so it will always have a special place in my blackened little heart.

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?

    Doubt it. I really really doubt it.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)

    Those days when I feel completely inspired and can jam for hours on the guitar just on pure energy. It's rare, but fun.

    I read all the replies! You guys sure are not into birthstones, lol.

    Ok, here are my answers:

    1. What is your birthstone and do you wear it? Do you care?
    Mine is Emerald. I like emeralds but right now I don't own one and I don't really care. Maybe if I find a nice one and have the funds, but they are expensive.

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?
    Probably a large diamond that my mom gave me. She loves it, so I have to love it. And she told me not to sell it until after she dies when she won't know about it, but I doubt I will sell it.

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?
    Nah, lol. I am never gonna have kids.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)
    I like sitting on the couch with some tea and reading, that really chills me out. I also can chill pretty well online too so that also.

    Aquamarine. I used to wear it when I had a necklace with a pendant that had one on it, but I no longer have the pendant.


    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?
    Uhhh...nothing, really.


    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?
    Ehh, I wouldn't be bad, but I wouldn't be great. I love Babies, but I hate little kids.


    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)

    Cup of Tea, Good Book

    1. What is your birthstone and do you wear it? Do you care?
    Emerald, use to wear my birthstone all the time.. just got done having a pair of emerald stud earrings in my ears.. but finally ears healed, and got to put back in my black pearlies! nah, don't care much for my birthstone, i mean i like emeralds.. i just can do with out them, they don't mean much to me..

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?
    a music box, that is made of oak wood, and has a butterfly on top of it.. i hope to have it forever, it kinda means a bunch to me..

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?
    um i dunno.. i think i would make an alright one.. i'm not a big fan of kids, i like 'em, but after working at walmart for so long i've grown to hate them.. so we shall see, they say when it's your own kid, it's different.. i how ever love the idea of giving them back when you are done thinking they are cute..

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)
    i love going for runs, it's nice, and refreshing.. i also love being some where with my music.. have it be while on the computer, in the car driving, or just in my room laying on the bed.. i love the time i spend with my music, i love my music.. i also enjoy taking time out to read..

    1. What is your birthstone and do you wear it? Do you care?
    'Tis an emerald, and no I dont wear it. I am not a fan of green to begin with, so even if I wore that kind of thing I wouldnt (jade is cool, but that is one of the few cool green things)

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?
    I dont think I prize the things I own much. Most of the things I appreciate most are replaceable if lost (books, CDs, movies) and the things I most rely on (ie my car, thanks a lot Soutern California must drive everywhere design) isnt something I would particulary keep a long time or particularly cherish

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?
    Um, I dont know. I do really well with kids under about 5, but after that it is real hit or miss.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)
    A nice long, hot shower is nice, as are naps. Reading a good book is nice, as long as it isnt assigned reading (I enjoy the same books about 10 times more when I reread them later on by my own choice). And oddly enough, driving (not for fun driving, but just getting where I need to go on an every day basis). I get about a good 30-45 min drive each way to school, 4-5 days a week. It is a good time to relax and put on some good music and kind of just be by yourself. Too bad gas costs so much, makes it a little less enjoyable.

    1. What is your birthstone and do you wear it? Do you care?
    Emerald. It's not my favorite stone, but if it were like, a gift or something, something that gave it meaning I'd wear it.

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?
    Hmm, I guess it would be the mahjong set my grandfather gave me. It's the one he came to America with, and decided to give it to me a few years ago.

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?
    I've been told I would, but I'm not a fan of children.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)
    Would video games count? If not, reading a good book.

    No!

    1. What is your birthstone and do you wear it? Do you care?

    Mine's an emerald also. I have a ring with one in it, but I never wear it or any sort of jewelry for that matter. And nah, don't care. Is there some sort of story behind having one? Symbolism?

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?

    I can easily do without the things I own, no one has ever given me a material token representative of something special.

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?

    I used to think I could do pretty well, but not anymore because I've different attitudes. I could pull it off well enough if I had to though.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)

    Listening to music would be my most common; but something a little more treasured would be.... how shall I say... contemplating the cosmos.

    1. What is your birthstone and do you wear it? Do you care?

    Mine's sapphire, and I don't wear it. I used to be a big ring buff, but never had sapphires because my family is very fond of opals *loves*. Then my fingers shrunk ('splain me DAT one, Lucy), and I don't wear my rings anymore. Except my copper one, which I need to find. I wouldn't mind it, though. I look good with blue.

    2. What is your most prized thing you own? Will you have it forever?

    My piece of The Box. It's a hunk of the box we did Bang Bang You're Dead with; we had to get rid of it this summer, and everyone took pieces. It has a full cast picture on it. It's one of the handles. We died doing that show, so. Next to that, my Mama Duck necklace. It's a big long chain with a pendant that has an etching of rosemary on one side and on the other it says "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance: Hamlet: IV, V, 174". She wore it almost every day for longer than I'd known her, and she gave it to me the day I graduated high school. I wear it almost all the time. And, my best friend Jessiemac made me a copper ring. A really simple thing, she was just practicing saudering, but I like it. And I have a box of special things, like notes and stuff. And yes, I'm going to have all of these forever. Though, the necklace I might have to pass on later in life to <i>my</i> prodigy.

    3. Would you make a good parent...eventually?

    Yeah. I'm looking forward to it.

    4. What is your favorite "you" time? (like going for a walk, or curled up with a cup of tea, or taking a long bath, etc?)

    Either when I can take a nap on the lovesac, when it conforms just perfect, or when I can have really loud music on and sing along full out

    Crianca I love opals too, it's my mom's birthstone so she has given me like 3 opal rings. One of them is a rather large fire opal surounded by 22 diamonds. It's pretty freaking incredible. Should be 23 though...

    PM - yah, I enjoy my online time too, it's very relaxing and I just love it.

    My sister got me an amazing opal necklace while she was in the South Seas, it's beautiful. I should take a picture sometime.
