Rules: List seven you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your winter. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.


7 embedded youtube videos under the them, and despair. )
- List 7 habits/quirks/facts.
- Tag 7 people to do the same.
- Don't tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag 'whoever wants to do it'.

Let's see…where to begin... )

AAAAAAAAAAAAND do it yourself if you feel so inclined. ^_^
- Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile".
- I'll respond by asking you five questions to satisfy my curiosity.
- Update your journal with the answers to your questions.
- Include this explanation and offer to ask other people questions.

To which I was asked, courtesy of [ profile] hearts_blood:
1. Who is your ultimate OTP? (Fandom, literary, historical, whatever.)
2. What should you have done instead of going to college?
3. If you could travel to any period in history, what would it be and why?
4. Alcoholic beverage most likely to get you knocked up/your organs stolen.
5. Kirk or Picard? Why?

In other news, things are beginning to come together, like Jell-o that's been in the frig for 45 minutes. I'm getting used to my longer hours at work (much though I'm still rather zombie-ish by the time I get home), I'm writing more, I'm plotting future reviews (mwhaha "1776" and 1966's Batman, you're SOOOOO in line!), I've recruited a friend who actually knows something about filming stuff (unlike me, who is really just flying by the seat of her pants), and my Halloween plans of Geekery, Trek, and AWESOMENESS are finally, maybe, totally going to work!

Reply to this post by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of youfive words that I hope will make me learn more about you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

My 5 words: Shiny Objects, Laundry, Piece of the Action, Beaches, and Stars )

STILL re-writing my idea for my retro TV/Movie video review idea. I'm trying to write a fun introductory skit, so I can explain what I'm reviewing and why I'm reviewing it in a truly hammy and (hopefully!) entertaining manner. Also, trying to write something based on where I think I can film it and who I think I can drag along in this venture as other characters...who wouldn't want to be a character in a kitschy and campy vaguely secret!organization! spoof?! And really, who wouldn't want to watch the "Adventures" of Agent Anachronism as she saves the Free World one retro-review at a time?

...Well, back to the drawing board. And to this episode of "Man from UNCLE". Research is SO time consuming. ;)

I was greedy and asked two different people, so I answered 10 questions.

1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

Been meaning to do with one for a while, and finally got around to it.

• Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.

• NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.

• They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.

• You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

--and if everyone jumped off a bridge, after a few million it definitely wouldn't hurt!

Put your mp3 player thingy on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results.

NOTE: I have WAAAAAAAAAAAY to many instrumental pieces of music.

...Also, my random itunes makes me sound so...NEEDY.

Out of the tree of like I just picked me a plum.
Daddy played piano, played it very well.
Woke up with morning with a strange sense of dread
Well maybe we won't be forgiven.

Donde estas corazon?
I got rhythm, I got music
I don't want to wonder if this a blunder
I want a man that moves.

Y'all pretty ladies around the world
I've got a new life.
Hey pal, feeling blue?
I want you.

Laundry day.
Good day, sunshine.
Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall,
Dancing bears, painted wings.

Maybe he's right--maybe there is something the matter with me.
Outside my window is a tree
Is it so wrong that I should want a gentleman's valet?
You are the latest contender.
Congratulations on being the creator of a new
Evil Plan (tm)!

Your objective is simple: World Domination.

Your motive is a little bit more complex: To show them all

Stage One
To begin your plan, you must first incapacitate a pope. This will cause the world to give one another worried looks, baffled by your arrival. Who is this evil genius? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good in your wizard's robes?

Stage Two
Next, you must seize control of new york. This will all be done from a underground secret headquarters of doom, a mysterious place of unrivaled dark glory. Upon seeing this, the world will tremble, as countless hordes of mad scientists hasten to do your every bidding.

Stage Three
Finally, you must tauntingly wave your great supernatural forces, bringing about an end to sanity. Your name shall become synonymous with dear god no, and no man will ever again dare take your lunch money. Everyone will bow before your extraordinary charisma, and the world will have no choice but to make you their new god.

Watching Jeeves and Wooster. Where's MY Jeeves, one wonders. I'm a bit of a Bertie, where's MY Jeeves!
Or, for that matter, being a Biology teacher?

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...


37% Logical, 20% Spatial, 31% Linguistic, 29% Intrapersonal, 33% Interpersonal, 12% Musical, 29% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 41% Naturalistic!

"This area has to do with nature, nurturing and relating information to one's natural surroundings. Those with it are said to have greater sensitivity to nature and their place within it, the ability to nurture and grow things, and greater ease in caring for, taming and interacting with animals. They may also be able to discern changes in weather or similar fluctuations in their natural surroundings. They are also good at recognizing and classifying different species.

'Naturalists' learn best when the subject involves collecting and analyzing, or is closely related to something prominent in nature; they also don't enjoy learning unfamiliar or seemingly useless subjects with little or no connections to nature. It is advised that naturalistic learners would learn more through being outside or in a kinesthetic way.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include scientists, naturalists, conservationists, gardeners and farmers." (Wikipedia)

Just got back from Lancaster, PA. I desperately need to go to the Laundromat to do my landry, and message back a chap I rather fancy, and tidy my room, and post to D!P!, and plot out my damnable Nano novel, and cook green beans, and, and!--

I think tea and a cookie will be a better choice, don't you agree?

Your result for Reincarnation Placement Exam...

Holy Land

It's the Holy Land for you!

You were very difficult to place. You like civilization and humanity, but you don't really fit into the system, because you don't want to be just another cog in the millwheel. We almost placed you with a very nice Gypsy family, but then we noticed that you'd rather maintain your purity than sully yourself with the sort of mischief and immorality that a Gypsy lifestyle would provoke. Having narrowly missed that fate, we send you instead somewhere a little more... holy. Maybe you'll become a Templar?

Let's drop you into Palestine at about the tenth century. You live in a nation steeped in ancient religious history. Politics, religion and warfare are dangerously blended in this part of the world, but your answers indicate that you're willing to go with that. There's no other place in the world that compares.

Try to steer clear of the occasional dust-ups. Or not.

Go over to Wikipedia and enter your birth date (month/day) and then pick 3 events, 2 births and 1 holiday that occurred on the day of your birthday.

Supposedly the day of my birth is intertwined with a few things related to Steve McQueen. Including Steve McQueen.

Frickin' SWEET.

1) 1832 - In Hiram, Ohio a group of men beat, tar and feather Mormon leader Joseph Smith, Jr.. (and many people I know would say they should have finished the job.)

2) 1900 - New York City Mayor Robert Anderson Van Wyck breaks ground for a new underground "Rapid Transit Railroad" that would link Manhattan and Brooklyn. (*tear* I love you public transportation)

3) 1944 - World War II: In an event later dramatized in the movie The Great Escape, 76 prisoners begin breaking out of Stalag Luft III. (Which later lead to Steve McQueen trying to jump the border on a motorcycle, and David McCallum getting shot on train tracks.)

1) 1901 - Ub Iwerks, American cartoonist

2) 1930 - Steve McQueen, American actor (YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW COOL I FIND THIS TO BE)

Dyngus Day in Poland, or Easter Monday. Where all good Polish Catholics appear to dump buckets of water on each other, and traditionally, hit girls' legs with willow switches. Why do I feel like this holiday should have originated on Wonder Woman's Paradise Island?

Luckily I don't have work tomorrow, so once I recover from the site from HELL, I will need to have a bitch fest about that SITE OF DOOM. A preview of my misery? I put a rusty nail through my boot. Luckily, it was too short to actually puncture my FOOT. Thank God for small favors, eh?

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick four of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

Ok, I got this meme from both [ profile] zekkass and [ profile] swankyfunk, soooooo…

MY GOD. I woke up at 8:30...and it felt like I was waking up LATE. These early-mornings have RUINED me. I feel like I should be lodging a formal complaint, or something! I mean, REALLY!

...But instead, memetime!

The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Now, pop open your imaging program, and create that album cover.

On another phone is MIA. Left it on the LIRR. Some kind soul found it and is mailing it to me. Until then, call me at home. Oh, and does anyone want to go to the Newark Museum tomorrow? I still haven't decided how ambitious I'm going to be as the weekends have become my ONLY time to completely veg and stare at a ceiling in happy contemplation, but it's a possiblity, and they have an exhibit going now of 500 years of JEWELRY! JEWELRY!!! I LOVE JEWELRY!...even though you'd never think it, as I never wear any.

Then again, there's still that whole missing phone thing...

Oh, and tonight, who wants to eat massive amounts of food for ten bucks, and drink wine from a box? That's right, it's the Catholic Daughters' International Buffet tonight!...please come, I'm so lonely, and I have to help.

Back in Fishkill this week, digging on a new site. Nothing exciting, just shovel tests. Hoping against hope we'll be finished by next Thursday. Visiting [ profile] vengefulbuddha this weekend, that is if I don't get HORRIBLY LOST between here and Northampton. Really, really, REALLY fucking tired right now. Is it Thursday? Can I has a Thirsty Thursday plz?

...I should update some more, but *dies*
I have to get up at 4 am so that the family and I can leave for the happy, happy land that is Florida. Thanksgiving in Florida? In EPCOT, no less? Still not certain how I feel about this.

So I leave you with this! (yoinked from [ profile] swankyfunk

William Shakespeare

Beware the ink'n'imp of March.

Which work of Shakespeare was the original quote from?

Get your own quotes:

Oh, fancy that, my birthday is in March...*whistles innocently*

When I return, I shall have to regale you all with tales of working in the Greenhouse office in the city, where archaeological drama reigns supreme, which is an accomplishment considering it's only me and Paula and two phone lines in the office. Wherein clients cut down trees in an attempt to force you into uncovering more graves (because the term "preservation" seems BEYOND their limited grasp of the POINT of archaeology!), fire you one evening and hire you again in the morning. Likewise, the joys of commuting and running errands through the Financial District (*glomps downtown Manhattan!*), the pains of having to get up at 5 am, and the general tribulations of not getting my hands on a stiff drink when I need one (though I've finally found a DAMN GOOD pizza place right off of Stone Street).

...and now, BED.

Your Score: Scheherazade

You scored 30% maturity, 46% horniness, 73% stability, and 78% intellect!

Finally bit the bullet and worked out my okcupid profile.

You're Scheherazade, the storyteller of "The Book of One Thousand and One Nights" (around the 9th century).

As the daughter of an unnamed vizier, you're living in a world where the persian king Shahryar, angered and disillusioned by his former wife, has decided to marry a virgin each day, and to decapitate her the next day. Feeling for your fellow citizens, and willing to put an end to this horrible situation, you decide to volunteer as one of these one-day spouses.

During one thousand and one nights, you'll manage to keep the king from killing you by starting a story every night, and stopping at dawn at a cliffhanger: if the king wants to hear the end of the story, he'll have to wait for the next night (and to keep you alive, of course). At the end, you've restored the kings confidence in women in general, and he'll give up wanting to kill every woman alive. Nice work.

Your exact opposite would probably be Mme Henriette
