View Full Version : What would be written on YOUR door?



Letti

The thread is not my idea but I always loved it so much I had to steal it.

Just imagine...
Roland is walking on the shore...
he can hardly think...
he can hardly move...
every step takes him closer to his own step...

but suddenly there is a door in front of him. You are behind it.
What would be written on your door?

I remember this thread at .net, but I can't remember what I put :orely:

I think my door would either say The Dreamer or Constant Reader, either of those sum me up well.

I'm not sure I follow you?

If you mean does Talespinner sum up my life, then yes. Not just the writing part of it, but on a day to day basis. My mind is always in a constant world of my own making, and on few occasions, I get them mixed up

weren't you a - what is the word - paintbrushslinger?

jayson
01-10-2008, 01:48 PM
technically speaking, a digital paintbrushslinger. i do not use traditional painting techniques [i have tried but i have little talent there]. i do all of my painting digitally in adobe photoshop. i'm guessing my laptop wouldn't work in mid-world, but my acoustic guitar would.

Jean
01-10-2008, 01:54 PM
I have been at your site, I liked those paintings! But well, acoustic guitar would definitely work better... or maybe it's all because of the words; one won't hesitate to say "guitarslinger", but I can't off-hand come up with any -slinging for digital painting... which ipso facto makes you a guitarslinger in Mid-World

I like it too. Maybe because he prefaced it by saying "simply" which fathering isn't (not that I have children). Its that sort of laden ambiguity that appeals to modern man's fragmented nature. Well done Ryan.

Mine would read.. hmm.. There's other worlds than this

It's just in my nature to constantly move between the worlds -from our Tellus to Middle-Earth, All-World, Boo'ya Moon and so many more (but of course, this Earth of ours is too wonderful to be left behind forever :))

I'd have a skill to get the members of ka-tet into other times and worlds without having to go through todash. Quite handy, yes? :evil:

I've spent quite some time trying to think of what my door would say, but I must say, I can't come up with anything. There isn't a single thing that comes to mind that makes any sense in regards to me and the question.
I'd say "The Creatrix," but that implies some kind of divinity which I definitely don't possess. But since I'm always creating things, places, and people in my mind and on paper, it's the only one I can come up with that's remotely close, and I don't think it would be on my door.
But if we're following the same kind of motif as with Eddie and Suzanne in the books, it might say something like "eclectic child." I dunno... Nothing really seems right.

It's not a bad job at all. We all can't be brain surgeons. If you are kind to the people and you help them to buy what they really want and need you do a lot.
That's how I see.

JameseyLefebure

Well my company is big on customer confidentiality - but my theory is if you act like a dick you waver that right!! The majority of the stories are amusing, but in that OMG way! I can give you a top 5 of my "favourite" memories of working here.

5 -
Having to say the following statement in an actual conversation with a customer trying to return a product -
Customer - "well - what are you going to do about it?"
Me - "Well sir - while i do understand what you are trying to say to me, I just want to clear something up. It is not *my* fault that your wife's head is to big for the ball gag to fit her now is it?"
It later turns out that he did think it was my fault - and demanded a refund on said ball gag. He never got it!

4.
I once had to argue with a customer who was trying to return an R18 DVD. When I asked him what was wrong with it (we don't return DVD's unless they are faulty and even then we simply exchange it for the same DVD but a different disk that's checked as it's So easy to copy DVD's now) his reason for wanting to return it was..
"i don't like the accents of the women in it!"
I asked him
"in what way sir?"
his responce...
"They're russian accent's! I don't like russian accent's!"
My very dry responce
"What were you expecting?! The DVD is called Russian Nympho's! I think the russian accents are implied in the title sir!"

3.
Having to ask a customer to leave the premises because he got aggressive when i refused to sell him MY urine in a bottle for 20!

2.
generally the million or so time's i've been asked how much it is to buy my "services" or the million or so times I've had to explain to people that "no. We don't keep prostitutes in the staff room."

1.
Being Flashed and then masturbated at.
This is my favourite memory - mainly cause the guy who did it looked like the Col. from KFC.
I had helped him pick out a DVD and a toy, served him and handed him his change. i dropped some pennies when I was handing him the change - i bent down behind the till to pick them up, when i got there he had dropped his trousers and was masturbating infront of me.
I shrieked, he looked at me dead pan and said
"what do you think?"
without missing a beat i said
"i've seen toothpick's bigger - now get the F**K out my shop you dirty horribe b**t*rd!!!" Then run round from the counter and chased him into the street without letting him pull his pants up.

Don't get me wrong - i quiet enjoy my job and it has got some weird protocol's in place. I'm not allowed to look at anything BUT porn on the internet and a lot of my customers are lovely people and I've helped a lot of people deal with their own issue's regarding sex (i'm like an encylopdia of porn stars, porn movies and sex toys now - so if you've got any questions feel free to ask lol) i've helped a good few people come to terms with their sexuality and have also helped a lot of couples reconnect with each other - the above stories are just a couple of the more unusual people i've had to deal with :) i've got about a hundred more of those babies!! :)
As i'm sure you can imagine the staff night's out are always fun!! :)

I have to consider that the door's label describes the person, but more from Roland's perspective (after all, the doors are for him). Eddie never would have thought of himself as a prisoner, and Odetta as 'the Lady of Shadows'. With that in mind, mine might be:

The Technician


for, i'd probably be most useful to the ka-tet (as it is in the books) as someone who would be most comfortable with all the computers (di-polar or otherwise) and tech they come across.

If the door was a bit more metaphorical, (considering the evil flavor of machines in DT), mine might be

The Demon Tamer

or even

The Gambler (?)

The Dog
Roland would enter the door into my body as I'm being born in 1982.
Since he sees no point in drawing a baby into endworld, he leaves my door and continues on to the others.

At some point, before any of the ka-tet die, he has a moment of clairity and stops his journey to the tower.

He returns to my door and enters The Dog to live with Jake, Eddie, and Susannah to live out a life without obsession for the tower. Or does he?
