You Are a Fruitcake

People pretend you're sweet and precious, but they know how weird you really are!

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a non-same-sex marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.
dianec42: Mug of tea (Tea)

You Are Black Tea

You have a bold personality. You're not afraid of simply being yourself.

You have the courage to speak the truth. You are fearless in your actions.

You come off as a bit intimidating and unapproachable. Only confident people are attracted to you.

You don't try to scare off anyone. You're just an intense person!

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List 5 songs you like that start with that letter
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions

(4. Optional: Promise not to give anyone X.)

[livejournal.com profile] sharikkamur gave me an M.

In no particular order....

"Malaria" by Shriekback: the guitar is loud; the drums are played by a real person; the vocals are tight, earnest, and intense; and the lyrics make absolutely no sense. What's not to love?

"Magic Man" by Heart: girls that rock, that's all you need to know.

"Mustang Sally", the Commitments version: a song that's very fun to play, and one of only a few songs that I can play and sing at the same time.

"Mrs Robinson" by Simon & Garfunkel. I am also partial to the Lemonheads cover.

"Memories Can't Wait" by Talking Heads: Haunting and moody. Some '90s band covered it and tried to ruin it. The original is still the One True version.

You Are a Werewolf

You're unpredictable, moody, and downright freaky.
You seem sweet and harmless, until you snap. Then you're a total monster.
Very few people can predict if you're going to be Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde.
But for you, all your transformations seem perfectly natural.

Your greatest power: Your ability to tap into nature

Your greatest weakness: Lack of self control

You play well with: Vampires

The one no one got, 3) Cryptography, Scrabble, toy factory, was Sneakers.

The other 9 were apparently entirely too obvious. I may post a second string if I get really bored.

Go to IMDB and pick 10 of your favourite films. Pick 3 plot keywords from each and see if people can guess what they are.

(Note: These are all movies, no TV shows here. My taste in television is abysmal. These are also not necessarily my 10 most absolute favorite movies ever, but 10 of my favorites. Hopefully they're not all screamingly obvious.)

Here are mine, in no particular order. Good luck!

1) Ancient Greece, ship wreck, microwave oven
2) Animal abuse, unsubtitled foreign language, run over by a steamroller
3) Cryptography, Scrabble, toy factory
4) Flatulence, bowling, invisibility
5) Giant rat, fencing, true love
6) Interdimensional travel, rock band, New Jersey
7) Male frontal nudity, Latin grammar, spacecraft accident
8) Male nudity, redemption, altering history
9) Owl, flying car, evil robot
10) Smuggler, princess, severed hand

[livejournal.com profile] stuartc and I just got back from a lovely party at [livejournal.com profile] cahwyguy and family's place. If there really is an Intelligent Designer, I'd like to have words with him/her/it about this whole "sinuses" feature. So apparently the Tuesday before Lent is Pancake Day, at least if you're British. Dear Boston, We found your rain. Happy birthday to the most wonderful husband on this planet or any other one! Who can tell me where to get Scottish oat cakes in California? [livejournal.com profile] stuartc and I were in San Diego for 4 days. Sunday dawned cool and overcast. I actually did get a new cross-stitch project started during the Worldcon, the "Seasonal Welcome" kit (can't remember which manufacturer it's from). Yesterday there was laundry and tidying, plus staying up much too late to watch the Grand Prix (yay!). Someone seems to have died and made me Band Mom while I wasn't looking. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] merde, for the lovely expression, "I've got blisters on my blisters".

Dark Purple

To others, you seem a bit dark, mysterious, and moody.
In truth, you are just a very unique person who doesn't care what others think.
And you really enjoy your offbeat interests and friends.
You've decided that life is about living for yourself - simple as that.

You Are Gonzo the Great

"Is something burning in here? Oh, it's just me."
You're a total nutball who will do anything for attention.
The first to take a dare, you'll pull almost any stunt.
You're one weird looking creature, but your chickens don't mind!

You Are 56% Cynical

Yes, you are cynical, but more than anything, you're a realist.
You see what's screwed up in the world, but you also take time to remember what's right.

And most of this stuff I learned WAY later than high school, but it amuses me nonetheless.

You paid attention during 97% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

Comment and I'll give you a letter. Then you have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. After, post this in your journal,and give out some letters of your own.

[livejournal.com profile] sharikkamur gave me the letter P.

Ten Things I Love About U.... err, P )

If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

(Well, there was that time [livejournal.com profile] lapsedagnostic absolutely INSISTED I had to get on That Mailing List… without which my life would quite possibly have been extremely different.)

Out of curiosity, does anyone know whatever became of question 7?

dianec42: Joshua tree against a blue sky (Default)
This is how it works: Comment on this entry asking for a letter, and I'll provide one.

Write ten words beginning with that letter, including an explanation what the word means to you and why.

I got the letter T from [livejournal.com profile] sharikkamur.

1. Tea! My beverage of choice. I prefer it unadulterated, though I did learn to drink it with milk whilst living in the UK. I also like iced tea, which my English husband finds unbearably strange.I like my tea stronger than my mom likes her coffee.

2. Transit, public: I much prefer it to driving, although in LA I haven't really been able to make that work for me. Whenever I get to a new city, I like to see how the transit lines fit together and make pretty patterns. T also conveniently stands for Tube (London) and "the T" (Boston).

3. Travelling: Something I do quite a lot of. These days I am usually quite happy to have a travelling companion in [livejournal.com profile] stuartc. Sometimes, of course, that just means we're cranky at each other instead of being quietly cranky to ourselves. I love being in other places. Getting there is frequently a giant pain in the neck though.

4. Thinking: Something I spend my every waking hour doing, whether I want to or not. I can kind of turn it off for a little bit by playing WoW or solitaire. Although I spend far too much time Thinking, I can frequently be impressively Thoughtless.

5. Teleportation: If I could choose to have one super power, this would definitely be the one. See above about how I like BEING in other places...

6. Tough: I am tough. I tend to think that I can handle everything on my own. Occasionally my darling husband yells at me when I am particularly dumb about this.

7. Temper: I have been known to lose this from time to time. Not nearly so much these days as when I was a kid.

8. Television: I have a love-hate relationship with this. It drives me crazy, and it also sucks all of my time when I let it. I found British telly to be much more satisfying than American TV, but possibly only because I hadn't had time to get sick of it.

9. Texas: I was conceived in San Antonio, and actually made it back there for a Worldcon in 1997. It was much more bland and touristy than I expected... possibly because I was there for the Worldcon and didn't go exploring too far. It was also extremely hot, which I liked but which caused some of my friends to wilt quite a bit. I probably wouldn't like it there for extended periods of time, although the steaks and ribs were to die for.

10. Trees: I adored climbing trees when I was a kid. Can't remember the last time I actually climbed one. I still take great solace from being in the woods. We have many trees in the yard of the house we're currently renting: a fig, a mango, a huge avocado, a satsuma, two lemons, and at least six guavas. This is indicative (to my mind, anyway) of just how strange life can get.

mmm, meat.

You Are Beef

You're big, burly, and maybe even a little stinky. And no one's going to come between you and a good steak.
And you've probably never met a vegetable you like, unless fries and ketchup count.
