From [livejournal.com profile] nearly_everyone, that photo meme.

The rules:
  • take a picture of yourself right now.
  • don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair... just take a picture.
  • post that picture with NO editing.
  • post these instructions with your picture

So. Is me. *waves* Sitting on the sofa, staring at my laptop. Behind me you can see some of the books which are piled behind the sofa. Must get that sorted...

Note to self: 3k words on Jayne/Simon? Not actually work. Really. Come on, brain - Shed World! Squirrels! Gorramit!

6 words

I keep seeing the 6 words meme popping up on my f-list. And the whole 6 word story thing has been sitting in my head for a while now - one of the newspapers did a bunch by famous writers, yada yada.

And finally, here are a selection, dredged out of my sleep-deprived brain (always works better that way):

  • Wedding ring, long sought, now found.
  • Lifetime's work in print: a retrospective.
  • Happiness attained: clutter and weight decreasing.
  • Free to a good home: neuroses.
  • Found: self-worth. For sale: miniskirt.
  • Wanted: fresh chalk for clean slate.
  • Red letter day: in the black!

They aren't all autobiographical by a long way. But it's a fun game to play. So what are your 6 word stories, hmmm?

That's terrifying. How have I had time to do anything else but watch tv? Argh!

Alright, finally, I emptied out the dungeon completely - and at the very last, was turned to stone by [livejournal.com profile] roninstorm the cockatrice. Pretty darn good! )

And now, back to actual work. Oh wait, Wimbledon's on, and Agassi just took the 2nd set tie-break...

Five Weird Habits meme - I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] sam_mi

The Rules:
The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "Five Weird Habits of Yourself" and people who get tagged need to write an LJ entry about their five queer/weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and list their names.

Ok, my five weird habits are (and bear in mind this is my answer today...):

1. I really don't like being pulled backwards, into a hug, or anything. Just don't, alright?
2. I have a bunch of books I'm reading: a bedroom book, a loo book, a livingroom book, a handbag book. Yes, I can keep them all straight in my head.
3. The older I get, the more I like pink.
4. Every so often, I *have* to go back and reread a book. Usually, it's All the Mowgli Stories (cloth-bound hardback with watercolour plates, lovely), or Neuromancer (British first edition).
5. I talk to myself, and sometimes I catch myself saying half of the conversation I'm having. Out loud. In public. And that doesn't bother me too much.

Well, I'm not in the mood for tagging people, but just in case I was, I'd maybe ask [livejournal.com profile] wey, [livejournal.com profile] d_floorlandmine, [livejournal.com profile] makyo, [livejournal.com profile] sactomo and [livejournal.com profile] katjabee if they wanted to give it a go. So feel free to, or not, as you like, as always.

Ground Rules: The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "5 weird habits of yours" and people who get tagged need to write an LJ entry about their 5 quirky habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.

Well, since I'm not feeling in the mood to impose on others this evening, I won't tag people. I'd like to see you guys do this one, though, as it's a good way to get thinking about ourselves in a different light - which is fun, nu? *grin*

So, my quirks are: )

Bear in mind that those are only 5 quirks. Ask me tomorrow, and the answers would be different.

After seeing [livejournal.com profile] cfw's truly excellent meme results which made me laugh lots and lots, I thought I'd pop [livejournal.com profile] ravenlas's username into it. That made me laugh even more...

December's mindmap here: )

I went swimming yesterday and I went swimming today, and this lunchtime I shall be climbing. Yay! I have written over a thousand words a day so far this week, and I'm starting to get organised. How scary is that? lol

The tiling looks great in the bathroom. Use Bob from Ceramica Tiling for all your tiling needs! (He's booked up every day including weekends until Christmas, and booked up after then until some time in January, so plan a lot further in advance than I did...)

Bad teeth!

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] eddie_777!

The dentist, bathrooms, WoW, life, and a meme: )

From [livejournal.com profile] mister_ed:

Your Birthdate: June 3

Being born on the 3rd day of the month is likely to add a good bit of vitality to your life.
The energy of 3 allows you bounce back rapidly from setbacks, physical or mental.
There is a restlessness in your nature, but you seem to be able to portray an easygoing, "couldn't care less" attitude.

You have a natural ability to express yourself in public, and you always make a very good impression.
Good with words, you excel in writing, speaking, and possibly singing.
You are energetic and always a good conversationalist.

You have a keen imagination, but you tend to scatter your energies and become involved with too may superficial matters.
You are affectionate and loving, but sometimes too sensitive.
You are subject to rapid ups and downs.

From [livejournal.com profile] kiarapanther.

Chances are people you don't even know are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind, post a link to your entries on this day six months ago, nine months ago, a year ago, and two years ago. If there was no entry on that day, link the closest date.

Six months ago, I made doughnuts and watched Studio Ghibli films with [livejournal.com profile] gaxx.

Nine months ago, I was doing memes.

A year ago, I had a great weekend with [livejournal.com profile] ravenlas and friends, good food, films, much snuggling, and I was saving the Times airmiles coupons.

Two years ago, I was 20 days away from starting up my lj account, and 10 days away from moving into my house, and had glandular fever.

Pinched from [livejournal.com profile] kingwamba:

You scored as Toreador. You belong to the Toreador bloodline. Often regarded as vain or shallow, the Toreador are blessed with a striking, almost supernatural beauty. Toreador are so driven by the pursuit of beauty that they are often highly connected with art, music, or theater. While they do have a uncanny ability to seduce and manipulate mortals, many other vampires simply dismiss them as decadant pretty-boys.
















What vampire clan do you belong to?

Toreador / Malkavian sounds about right to me. *beam* "Say, is that a dragon over there? Ooh, pretty!"
