unavoidedcrisis: girl lying on the ground with playing cards scattered over her (Default)
A few months ago [livejournal.com profile] erture posted about which five female fictional characters she would want on her "crap, now we have to save the world/universe/sandwich" team. When I read it, I thought she probably had picked the characters I also would have picked, but I guess I should probably think of my own, so here goes.

YES THIS HAS BEEN SITTING ON MY DESKTOP SINCE OCTOBER, BLOW ME. I started a year-end meme I nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] sigrundora, but it turned out to depressing as hell when I started writing, and I'm attempting to begin 2012 as positively as possible, so none of that, only geekery and badass chicks!

Let's be honest, if procrastination could save the world, I would single-handedly make sure it was never in peril. )

EVERYONE. [livejournal.com profile] ordinaryink graduated from pastry school!

SO HAVE A MEME.



SERIOUSLY THOUGH, YUM, RIGHT. [livejournal.com profile] inkruns makes yummy banners. Come join us. It's pan-fandom and pan-medium (fic, art, ... other things that people do). And tee-hee for the first food-related icon I found in my list. Flying shrimp, ftw!

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.


1 - The jerk and the bitch.
2 - The goofy ginger sidekick and the vile blond archenemy.
3 - The money-driven, muddy hero and the psychic weapon in a skirt.
4 - The younger sister with the photographic memory and the promiscuous head of a surgery department.
5 - The one who killed the king and the one who was sent after the two daughters.
6 - The ex-insurance agent with hella personal issues and the woman without a name.
7 - The one who might be a plumber and his documentary-making co-host.
8 - The playboy with daddy issues and the news reporter with daddy issues.
9 - The tenth in a long line and the one with the stolen identity.

ngl, even if no one has any ideas, I laughed so hard thinking these up :D

[livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte might hurt me, but here I am, posting during a word battle.

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?', 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?', 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

1 • Create a graphic (200 x 200 max size) to represent your personal "candy". It should have your username on it, but otherwise can feature whatever you want. Make it something special since it's self-representative.

2 • Make a post with the subject "trick or treat?". Put your "candy" somewhere in it, and be sure to repost these instructions.

3 • Then, go around other people's LJs and reply to them with either "trick" or "treat". If you reply with "trick", they will give you an LJ dare that you have to perform before taking their candy. If you're too wimpy for that, simply say "treat" and take their candy.

4 • List all your collected candies in your original "trick or treat?" post to show off your collection!

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] kaeilaspn.

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or literary or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! Fandoms, ice cream flavours, books I might get around to writing one day, cartoon moments, women in my fandoms, OTPs, ideal holiday destinations, goals for the future, celebrity crushes, books I wish would be made into movies, love songs. And I will answer them all in a new post (or in comments). Possibly with pictures.

Some of those were hard choices. I know I'm boring and the same icons appear in a few categories. So sue me.

I'll update later with today's photos (probably) and then I won't be around again for reals until Monday. Now I'm guessing I'll have to go back about 100-125 entries to catch up on what y'all do this weekend. It's going to be interesting, I'm sure. :)

Got my last rabies needle today, feeling sickly and weak. *whine* But at least we know I'll be rabies free. That's pretty reassuring.

Desktop Background Meme/Photo )


Abby is the least helpful shadow I've ever had, especially when it comes to walking up or down the stairs or trying to catch frogs.

It's been raining off and on here for the last few nights. I go out around eleven-midnight and walk around the suburbs, finding frogs that have come out in the rain and relocating them away from the rich people's swimming pools and towards the swampy bits of land that are mostly chlorine-free. So. I guess I have a new hobby? That's only a little weird, right?

Last night I had Abby with me and her sole aim in life was to eat as many frogs as I picked up. She didn't actually ingest any; all frogs safely accounted for and stolen away from the swimming pools. Let's chalk this one up as a win.

Stole some very good ideas from [livejournal.com profile] cantarina1 today.

Idea The First

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so... she likes office supplies." I'd love it if every single person who added me would do this.



Idea the Second

Post a link to whatever fanworks you're most proud of! I don't care what your medium is: podfic, art, graphics, meta, fic, poetry, mixes; if you're particularly proud of it, I want to see it in the comments. Throw in a link to something you've always wished had gotten more attention and I'll wander over to have a visit. If you think I've already seen it but it really is your favourite, post it anyway. I'll leave more feedback if I haven't already left much and it gives everyone else a chance to be exposed to these fantastic things they may have missed.


Yes, I even stole the wording. It's not lazy, it's resourceful. It's also a nice way to procrastinate.
unavoidedcrisis: girl lying on the ground with playing cards scattered over her (i am canadian)
i've always wanted to tell you...




And happy birthday, Canada!

I was thinking about all the places I want to travel to and all the sights I want to see, and there is not a doubt in my mind that I will always end up back here. I love you, small-town Canada, never change.

Feeling good. Put another 600 or so words on one of my big bang and the rest is my first attempt at Leverage fic. But today is only day one. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.
unavoidedcrisis: girl lying on the ground with playing cards scattered over her (ruby slippers)
- The housing board cut down the tree outside my window :(
- I am having nachos for breakfast
- Wrote a measly amount of words last night with [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte, but have at least started my assignment for [livejournal.com profile] spn_hetexchange
- Someone remind me never to sign up for anything ever again because all these things are kicking my ass
- I blame [livejournal.com profile] epiphanyx7 for making me think writing was fun. YOU LIAR.
- I quite possibly have the dumbest leopard gecko in the world. He tried to crawl under his water dish and then started like... cheeping at me when his foot got stuck and he needed a rescue. Four minutes later, he's trying it again.
- Katie is still under the impression she's allowed to leave me. Which she's not. Ever.

Thirty Days of Television, Day Four )

Thirty Days of Television Meme, Day Five )

I think I have an attention span that actually rates in the negatives.
unavoidedcrisis: girl lying on the ground with playing cards scattered over her (magical pink umbrella)
Skipping today for the 30 Days of TV Meme because I don't have the energy to do day four's answer justice tonight. Instead, have another meme and a sad story.

Yet Another Music Meme

Rules:

- List the names of 20 of your favorite bands. (I can only think of 15. Sue me.)
- Have people try to guess your favorite song by each of them.
- Bold the ones that were guessed and add the title of the song.


01. Great Big Sea
02. Sloan - Everything You've Done Wrong
03. The Tragically Hip
04. Florence + The Machine - Drumming Song
05. Boys Night Out
06. The Hush Sound
07. Lady Gaga - Speechless
08. Tilly and the Wall
09. Barenaked Ladies
10. The Beatles
11. Kevin Devine
12. Motion City Soundtrack
13. Savage Garden
14. Sam Roberts
15. Taylor Swift - Our Song

That only looks like a weird list to me because I know I listen to a lot of country music, yet I'm not really showing that reflected. I also never realized I listen to so much Canadian content on a day to day basis, but I apparently do.

Also, if I were a MASH character, I'd apparently be 'Trapper' John.

Sad story has cut for icky. )

Yanked from [livejournal.com profile] scorpiod01 because come on, when was the last time I did a meme like this?

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. Skip the instrumental-only pieces (non-English too if you want).
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and title correctly. (If it's a cover, the original artist is okay, and vice-versa.)
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like this game, post your own!

LET'S EAT BABIES.

No, wait, that was Jonathan Swift's Modest Proposal.

Leen's Proposal is as follows.

Every single person reading this right now has hurt someone. Probably recently and probably someone you care about. Through words you spoke or words you thought or something you wrote down, through your action or maybe your inaction, or maybe just by not taking the time to say 'hey, I'm glad I've got you.' Maybe you were having a bad day, or maybe someone just said something that caused you to snap at them, or maybe you weren't even thinking about it. But I can pretty much guarantee someone got hurt in the process. I bet if you think, you can think of the person who hurt you.

Having said that, I encourage you all to think about those who you might have hurt or angered or made to feel less than they ought, and I urge you to apologize. Alternately, go find that person who made you feel crappy recently and tell them it's okay and you forgive them. Just a big, sincere, heartfelt, cozy blanket of apology.

"I am sorry for anything that I said or didn't say, and anything I did or didn't do, because you're my friend and it would break my heart to know I've done you wrong. "

or

"I don't want to get into why or how or what for, but you really made me feel bad last night/on Tuesday/that one time, but I want you to know I'm going to let go of it and just think of all the reasons you're one of my awesome friends instead, so let's go get an iced mocha instead."

Something like that, I'm sure you all know what I mean.

And I get that it's kind of painfully ironic to see this coming from me, the girl who can hold grudges like an Olympic sport and say unthinking, hurtful things 81% of the time, but I don't know, maybe I'm growing. Life's too short to stay upset with the people that matter in your life.

This looks like way too much crack fun.

In other news, I honestly don't think I've slept as well as I have in the last few days in a very long time. I blame/credit the puppy for this, as her 4+ walks a day are exhausting me. It would be perfect if my arms weren't killing me from the combination sunburn/dog trying to pull them off. And on that note, it's time to take Abby out again!

(I love how my moodtheme picture for 'awake' has a cat sitting on the person. You go Hasley, you totally know what it means to own animals. Also, I just realized when I redesigned my profile I forgot to credit the faboo moodtheme from [livejournal.com profile] frostianmoods. Fixing now!)

Latvia:

I understand that you recently when through some political turmoil, but that is no excuse for rudeness. I got no thank you card for the fruit bouquet I sent on your birthday and that just seems spiteful. Please, for your own good, send one in the next forty-eight hours or you will not like what happens as I will be forced to take drastic alternative measures. I'm not asking for much, Latvia, just a little respect.

Unless you comply with my request for common courtesy, I will have no choice but to capture and systematically devour all the white wagtails in the world and then you'll have no national bird at all and won't you look silly? This is normally where one would say 'this will hurt me more than it will hurt you', but really, it won't hurt me at all.

The ball is in your court, Latvia. You lose face with some of the more 'hardcore' countries who never send thank-you cards or return voicemails or respect you in the morning, or the birds get it.

Respectfully yours,
Colleen

Leave a comment saying, "COMMENT" and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.

my answers back here )

Anyways, I ramble. As if you couldn't tell.

See guys, I was going to write this big long rant about how I hate people so very much, but I started writing about MUSICALS and then I started LISTENING to MUSICALS and then everything went warm'n'fuzzy (except it's still bloody cold in here) and now I don't have the energy.

Reply to this post, and I will list three things I love about you. Maybe more than three. Then you can repost to your own journal and spread the love - we all need love.

Your result for The Brutally Honest Personality Test...

Freak- INFJ

40% Extraversion, 87% Intuition, 40% Thinking, 53% Judging

Well, well, well. How did someone like you end up with the least common personality type of them all? In a group of 100 Americans, only 0.5 others would be just like you. You really are one of a kind... In fact, I do believe that that's one of the definitions for the word "FREAK."

Freak's not such a bad word to describe you actually.


You are deep, complex, secretive and extremely difficult to understand. If that doesn't scream "Freak!" I don't know what does. No-one actually knows the REAL you, do they?


You probably have deep interests in creative expression as well as issues of spirituality and human development.


You've probably even been called a "psychic" before, because of your uncanny knack to understand and "read" people without quite knowing how you do it. Don't fret. You're not actually psychic. That would make you special and you'll never accomplish that.


You're also quite possible the most emotional of them all, so don't take this all too hard. Nevertheless you most definitely have the strangest personality type and that's not necessarily a good thing.

I don't know how I feel about that.

In other news, neither of my fave teams won in the pairs skate last night. China took silver and gold (bronze went to Germany). I personally liked the silver medalists over the gold in the short program and the free skate, but I'm not an Olympic figure skating judge now am I?

Also got to watch Canada get it's first gold medal on home soil. Bilodeau just look so overwhelmed, like he needed a hug. Maybe I just have an irrational urge to hug everyone, yes?

Today's agenda includes finishing my [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fic (eep!) and read through my [livejournal.com profile] samdeanexchange entry to make sure it's not utter garbage. Reminder to self: don't sign up to write fic for people if you suck at writing in general. >.<

Mother and Stepfather leave for the their trip either Thursday night or Friday morning to catch their flight from Buffalo. So starting then, I will have virtually no human contact until the 9th of March. Woo? I don't even know. I already have a feeling that these dogs are going to drive me crazy.

Also, I wanna go to Disneyland. Like, really bad.

So that's my icon bsnss for today. I watched SPN tonight with Janis and Ace, and we watched NEWSIES which fills me with joy and also with love and the urge to sing it out.

Katie is gone for a few days. I don't know whether to be happy she's having a nice weekend or upset that I am trapped here without anyone to bother.
