Snagged from a bunch of folks:

1. How did you name your pets?
Theoden was named "Jupiter" when I got him from the animal shelter, and as appropriate as that was for a big, rather round, buff-colored boy, it didn't shorten well for calling. At the time Lord of the Rings was my most overwhelming fandom, and particularly the Rohirrim, but "Eomer" didn't work... which made me think of his resemblance to Bernard Hill as Theoden, and that stuck.

Our other cat, originally The Boy's, is Random. Because his acquisition of The Boy was very random. :)

2. Poirot or Miss Marple?
Neither, really, but I've probably seen more Poirot.

3. Do you have a FB account too?
Yeah, but I tend to avoid it mostly.

4. Books - hardcover or paperback
I read mostly on my Kindle and from the library, nowadays, but am perfectly happy with whatever. Slightly prefer paperbacks for being less heavy and also generally cheaper.

5. Mobile: Windows, Android or Apple?
I didn't get a phone at all until very late, and when I upgraded to a smartphone I was very happy with my Palm Pre. Currently have a very old iPhone, but planning to switch to Android whenever I finally convince myself to upgrade.

Reply to this post by yelling "Words". I'll pick five words that I associate with you. Post to your journal about those words and get your friends to do the same.

[ profile] beam_oflight gave me: "Writing, Anthropology, Feminist, Podcasts annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd Doctor Who :)"

Why *do* I like all those things? )

....Holy shit. For the record, it's been in the high 80s F here recently, which is unseasonably hot for Seattle... and just while I was writing this it clouded up and started whistling with all sorts of wind. Here's hoping that a summer thunderstorm is in the offing!

Comment with a fandom and I will tell you my....

One True Pairing Ship:
Canon Ship:
"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" Ship:
"You are one sick bastard" Ship:
"I dabble a little" Ship:
"It's like a car crash" Ship:
"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship:
"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" Ship:
"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship:
"When all is said and done" Ship:

I'm not so much with the "OMG One True Pairing" thing in the sense of "don't you dare break them up!", but I definitely have my favorites, so this could be amusing.

So, I was DEAD FROM SINUSES yesterday, and ended up staying home curled up in bed drugged up on Nyquil so I could sleep. Which turned out to be the best thing in the world for me, because... well, here I am! All functional and everything. Go me.

Anyway. In honor of my return to the world of the waking, let's do a meme I snagged from [ profile] aris_tdg:

Name a fandom and I'll provide five reasons why the character I have a crush on/find attractive in that fandom would be a bad boyfriend or girlfriend in real life.

This is bound to be... interesting. Entertain me, please!
rivendellrose: (Default)
Hmm. How about a meme, snagged from [ profile] theladyfeylene?

Name a character that you know I write or have written, and I'll tell you:

a. What initially prompted me to like the character enough to write about him/her.
b. One of his/her best traits.
c. One of his/her worst traits.
d. How easy/difficult I find it to write the character.
e. The story/thread/chapter/post/paragraph/tag/phrase where I feel that I truly captured the character. [I may not be able to find it and exactly reproduce it, but I'll try to remember which story at least...]
f. My plans (if any) to write the character in the near future.

Oh, and update on the thumb-drive thing - I ordered a new one off NewEgg. 4 gigs! XD

This meme contains spoilery references to stuff from Second Doctor canon (does it still count as spoilers if it happened before I was born? I figure I'll stay on the safe side...) but none for the current series that I can think of. Borrowed from [ profile] livii... Fannish 5 )

Gacked from [ profile] ithidrial: List ten fictional characters you wouldn't kick out of bed (in no particular order) and tag five people to do the same.

In which Jen pervs a little... )

Also, for the fun of it... gacked from everybody:

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

Anything goes!
rivendellrose: (Bored - Sarah and Doctor)
In the interest of posting about pretty much anything other than the dratted fic (40k+ words as of last night...), and also in the interest of using my camera occasionally (yay!) I'll snag a meme from [ profile] beam_of_light:

Leave me a thing or prompt that you'd like to see a photograph of, and I'll see what I can do to provide. Bonus points for creativity. ;)

Or, alternatively, if you don't approve of the thought of my photography... suggest something else!

Can you tell I'm tired? If not, let me assure you that I'm sooooo tired, guys. Seriously, gonna fall asleep at work if I'm not careful. Bleh.

Yoinked from [ profile] lacrimaeveneris:

YOU'RE ON MY FRIENDS LIST, I want to know 36 things about you. I don't care if we never talk, or if we already know everything about each other. Short and sweet is fine ... You're on my list, so I want to know you better!


Questions! )

Please forgive spastic efforts at formatting with the cuts. Also, apologies that only one of them turned out in story format. o_O I apparently forgot what I was doing.
rivendellrose: (Giles and tea... perfection!)
Memeish goodness!

Name a character in comments and I will tell you five things that character would never, ever say. (Feel free to add your own suggestions by replying to other comments as well!)

I'm sleepy and braindead. Humor me?

Hell, while I'm at it I'll do the give me a character and I'll tell you five things from my personal canon one, too. As gacked from [ profile] nekokoban. (Apologies to whoever I gacked the first first one from - I forget!)

So, whoever told me there was nudity in Casanova? Really needs to get out more. Very cute and funny movie, full of lots of familiar actors and David Tennant acting exactly like he does as the Doctor, which is especially surreal when you consider that a) a good number of the major actors in it have guest starred in DW over the past few years and b) it's Russel Davies' writing, so the dialogue is pretty much exactly like the Doctor, too.

...But I've seen more naked flesh on the university Quad in April. Which is a pity, since what we did see (chest and truly astonishing expanses of pale, skinny, adorable Tennant-leg) was quite nice.

Aaaaanyway, it was still a good movie. Funny, good acting, great cast, etc. Pleasantly silly up to the depressing bit in the latter half, which I suppose was necessary. Entirely worth laughing at while drinking a bottle of wine and, in my case, soaking one's hair in home-made lightening stuff. Which does not appear to have had an appreciable effect on my hair, but whatever. I really ought to get used to the fact that nothing that isn't bleach is going to really make much of a difference, and I have objections to bleaching my hair. Alas. I'll continue dousing it with chamomile, lemon and such, though, because drat it, I don't get as much sun as I used to, and I don't want to lose the lighter bits in my hair.

Oh, [ profile] fridayfive:
1. At the end of today, do you think you'll feel spent or refreshed?
Probably spent, though I hope to go out to the pub tonight, so maybe that'll put a little bit more on the "refreshed" end of things.

2. Do you like back rubs?
Yes dear god please where can I sign up? My back has not been happy with me lately.

3. When did you last mislead someone?
Hmmm... Not actually sure.

4. What color are your eyes?
Blue with a bit of grey-green.

5. Friday fill-in:
What is this, a freebie? Okay... I'm beginning to seriously hate being single. No... scratch that... not just beginning. Just plain hate.

tgif! :D

Meme from [ profile] hopefulromantic: One-Word Meme )

In other news, not going up to the island, but I have a ton of happy books and writing and graphics work to do, so I am pleased. Also hoping to possibly hang out with [ profile] narsilion - is that do-able? Since our last visit got cut short by the silly van being dumb... ;)
rivendellrose: (pweeeease?)
Today has been a Monday. Very much... a Monday. As in the kind of Monday in which I discovered when I went on lunch that the frozen potpie I brought is not microwavable, and when I went to the Vietnamese place down the road and bought a banh mi sandwich, it ended up having chilies in it. Which I did not notice. Until I'd eaten three bites of the sandwich. Ow.

So, gacked from seemingly everyone - a meme.

Give me a topic - fannish, political, religious, whatever - and I'll post about it. Maybe a sentence, maybe a paragraph, maybe a multi-part post complete with pie charts... IF YOU'RE LUCKY.

Come on, people... somebody distract me. *Hope*
rivendellrose: (seeress)
Gacked from [ profile] sigelphoenix:

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want -- good or bad. When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified!) about what people remember about you.

Quote of the day for the first day post-return deadline:

Coworker to customer: I'm sorry, the last day to return textbooks was yesterday.

Customer (completely serious): But I'm here today. So... can I return my textbook?

Feeling better today - thank you to those who replied to my last drama-tastic post, and who put up with me in person bitching about it

My favorite supervisor at work informed me today that he and a friend of his (both over 50) are attempting to introduce "to geezer" as a new verb in the American lexion. His example of usage: "Done any good geezering lately?" "Yup, I told a young person all the things that are wrong with their music."

Also, went out to dinner with [ profile] narsilion for Spring-y-ness (for which she bought me too many cool things and then refused to let me pay for dinner as a gift in return, grrr!), and then to Barnes and Noble (shhh, don't tell work!) where I bought CDs. Aimee Mann and Jess Klein. Much love.

And now, because I'm avoiding my nightly writing - a meme gacked from [ profile] hoperomantic!

Name your top six TV shows right now, before reading the questions

Mine are all off the air because... um... I don't watch current TV. Except for "Blood Ties," which I would watch, except I keep forgetting to get the recordings from my mom. Oops. And in no particular order, because I don't want to feel like I'm picking favorites...

1. Firefly
2. Buffy
3. The X-Files
4. Babylon 5
5. Angel
6. Blood Ties (only seen one ep, but I love the books, so...)

And the Questions! )

Day 2 of textbook-rush seems to have gone pretty well. I'm tired, but nowhere near as dead to the world as I remember being at this time last quarter. So... progress, I guess!

Also, had the very strange experience of running into my high school AP U.S. History teacher today. He's pretty much the same old Keith, pompous and wonderful and funny all at the same time, and introduced me to his (okay, I'll admit it - very attractive) son, who he was constantly talking about back in high school, particularly to me because for some reason he'd got into his head that I should go to his son's college. It was all very surreal, but very neat.

Anyway, since I've been tagged by the wonderful [ profile] hoperomantic - a meme!

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Remember no cheating *grin*

And I tag whoever wants to do it!

Questions and music )
