I do what I'm told


Memery!  I took the handoff from newredshoes .

The tagged must answer these questions in their journals.  They may replace any question they dislike with a new, original question. Like I don't do that anyway. They must tag eight (eight?) people, not including the person who tagged them.

01. Make a list of 5 things you can see:

- Light brown sugar, organic.
- My juicer. It's my favorite kitchen appliance.  It's that one by Phillipe Starck -- some of you know what I'm talking about.
- A framed 1937 ad for Vat 69 Whiskey. YES. :-)
- A TV, playing the Today show.
- A case of Tab.

02. Would you ever get plastic surgery?

Yes.  The answer used to be no, but that 's what happens.

03. Is there anything in your fridge right now that you would never eat/drink?

Oh, LOTS of things.  I have children.  Um...chocolate milk.  Popsicles.

04. What's your occupation?

Writing/marketing for a small consulting firm.

05. Do you nap a lot?

Never, unless I'm very sick.

06. What was your first celebrity crush?

David Cassidy.  I had just split into four cells.  But that hair.... 

07. What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?

Ha.  Like anyone on my flist needs me to answer that. Band of Brothers owns me.  And anything at all done by Callum Rennie. See mary_the_fan for all CKR questions.

 

 

 

08. Name one of your heroes.

Roger Ebert

09. What was the last text message you received?

I don’t text. I’d like to say it’s for some really good reason, but it’s just because I’m lazy and I don’t need to.

10. What websites do you always visit when you go online?

LiveJournal, Television Without Pity, and I usually end up at imdb at some point in the day.

11. What was the last thing you bought?

Iced nonfat latte.

12. Radiohead, Muse or Interpol? Choose one.

I guess I’ll have to say Muse, cause I’m going through this really ridiculous phase where I play Supermassive Black Hole every time I get in the damn car.

13. Does the weather affect your mood?

Oh, yes.  But, unlike most people, I hate the sun. I wilt in the heat.  Bright sunlight feels oppressive to me, and I start to take it personally around July every year.  I’m just from a red-headed freckly tribe and we don’t do well in these conditions.  I love rain.  Spring and Fall are magnificent.  I love a mild, overcast day when I can smell things growing.

14. What is your zodiac sign?

Libra.

15. Name a song that makes you think about a ship/character that you like lately.

It’s not my idea, but ever since I saw this brilliant vid by Shalott on imeem, I associate Zebra by John Butler Trio with Ray Kowalski of Due South
.  I tried to embed this and it ATE HALF OF MY ENTRY, so a link is all I’m willing to do for you at this point. http://www.imeem.com/astolat/video/KBPNhsx_/shalott-dszebra/


16. Weird dream

I don’t remember them unless I try to.  I can think of one, but I’m not tellin.

17. Do you have any siblings?

Three sisters and one brother.

18. What's the last thing on TV, movies or the news that made you tear up a little?

I wish I had something more surprising to say here, but was the end of Points (again) on the History Channel last night.  Before that, it was Gaius Baltar’s last lines in the BSG finale. 

19. What are your plans for next weekend?

I’m graduating from Clown College. We’re going to have a big party in a small car.

20. Say something about the person who tagged you:  

I rarely have feelings this warm toward someone I’ve never met.
Really!  She’s passionate and enthusiastic, but in a really thoughtful and smart way. She gives squee a good name.  She’s a wonderful writer. She’s funny.  She has manners and gentility and social skills.  Because not all of us do, have you noticed?  She’s generous and helpful.  She’s welcoming and gives people the benefit of the doubt.  Yes, I know all this, I’m paying attention.  She’s critical and incisive, but not negative.  She uses her powers for good instead of evil.  She’s getting a restraining order right now.

 

 


Blah blah blah, ok I’m really not tagging eight people.  I need to leave someone for the rest of you.  I tag

gatsbyfan</lj>flippet</lj>zommbie1

and

misreall</lj>

Is it possible that lj hates me? Did I do something? Other than anthropomorphizing things, overly? I can't tell you how many times I had to edit that entry. And now I have those /lj gremlins and I know how to get rid of them but I'm afraid to edit the entry, becuase every time I do all my lj user tagged names jump to the bottom of the page! I'm not kidding! /beating my fists on the chest of technology

LJ doesn't hate you. No one hates you. It's just a Very Bad Week for technology.

But I love your icon. Love it.

You made me choke up. I am bookmarking this, and reading it again any time I feel down and out. Thank you, seriously. I wasn't expecting such kind words at all. <33333

Aw, I'm glad! Honey, I just sat down and wrote what came to mind. This is what you put out into the world. :-)

I'm a trouble maker. I make trouble.

It's because you'll have good answers. :P

I just knew I needed to open this one, LOL! :-)

Okay, I suppose I can avoid work with this just as well as flash bowling. :-)
