Letter meme: L [20150212|13:56]

I'm enjoying the resurrection of this meme. [personal profile] liseuse gave me an L.

Something I hate: Lint. Especially the lint you get when you accidentally leave a tissue in one of your pockets and then do a load of dark laundry. Thousands of tiny pieces of white lint, gleaming all over your black jeans, adhering with the stubbornness of dried snot. ARGH.
Something I love: Lumpia, or Filipino fried spring rolls. I do believe that, along with malasadas and manapua, they constituted a significant proportion of my childhood diet. I did a Google image search for them and I’m drooling all over the place now. Go on, try it. Even if you’ve never eaten one, I bet it’ll do the same for you.
Somewhere I’ve been: Lamu Island, World Heritage Site off the Kenyan coast. I went there in 2010 with the bloke and two friends. We spent a few days exploring it. I’ve linked the first day’s journal entry here, and if you follow the “lamu” tag it’ll take you through the rest: DW/LJ.
Somewhere I’d like to go: Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway. I want to see both the Svalbard Satellite Station and the Global Seed Vault.
Someone I know: Lyn, my wonderful neighbour. Which reminds me, I need to ask her over for tea next week.
A film I like: Lilo and Stitch. Because ohana means family, and family means nobody gets left behind, or forgotten. And because mad “I prefer the term evil genius” scientists, ray guns, aliens playing punch buggy, and social worker named Cobra Bubbles.

Also, Tia Carrera. ♥

There's been periodic talk about holding an annual meeting for one of the missions I work on in Svalbard. I'm really hoping it happens before the mission ends!

Yes, lumpia. I need to make some soon.

The nice thing about LJ's relative quietude is that everything has slowed down to a leisurely pace. :)
