Pools.

Especially, empty public indoor pools. The smell of chlorine, the colour of the walls and ceiling, the bottom of the pool, being underwater, ripples, and perhaps most of all, the fact the facilities are..... old. At least, the pool I go to, which belongs to a school.

Anything that is phonetically similar to the terms in NGE. For example, in Wall-E, the EVE robot pronounced her name like "Eva." Or when I was listening to a missionary at my church, he was giving an example of some of their language, and one of the words was "evangeli," which was pretty darn close to "Evangelion." Finally, every time I watch Frasier and Frasier's ex-wife is mentioned (her name is Lilith), I instantly relate it to NGE.

sometimes water droplets if they echo

that phenomenon when it's really hot and humid and the air seems to move "in waves"

Songs, mostly. Something in the lyrics will seem vaguely eva-like and suddenly I'll find myself imagining some character singing it, either as a monologue or to another character. Most recently I was chilling with Pandora and found myself wondering why nobody has done an AMV for a particular Savage Garden song featuring the R/S relationship.

The Genesis song "Lilywhite Lilith" from The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

You know what reminds of NGE? I take off my shoes every time I come in my house. Then again, my family's Asian, and the people in Eva are Asian.

Nothing except for certain songs on the raido that might seem fitting lyrics-wise.

The name 'Oscar' because it sounds exactly the same as 'Asuka' here in Australia, because whenever we pronounce a word with an er or ar on the end we pronounce it as 'ah'.

And... that's about it. ^.^

Pretty much any anime shop I come across....
Oh yeah, those gigantic Eva transporters, those big, delta shaped jets....I get reminded of them whenever I see the B-2 Stealth bomber.

And yeah, any song that reminds me of songs from Evangelion. And flocks of birds.

I put the song "Rei" from the sountrack as my ringtone.
God, Apparently you all have been discussing Q since November. Catching up on the discussion is harrowing.
