* 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.

It was hard to limit myself to so few Jon Stewart pics )

I completely fail at cross-posting. Here's my attempt at starting again. Book meme!

01. Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?

No. I'm not big on eating while concentrating on anything. Plus I don't want to take a chance on spilling food on my books.

02. Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?

No way, I would never ever write in a book! That is sacrilege!

03. How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?

I use bookmarks. I lose actual bookmarks a lot and will randomly use little pieces of paper but [personal profile] domina_malfoy gave me a book of 12 cat bookmarks that I've managed not to lose so I'm using them currently. [personal profile] jackiesjunkie bought me some fancy Harry Potter bookmarks but I can't use them around Alec cause he tries to grab the string that hangs from them.

04. Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

I'm on a fiction kick right now. For a long time I was reading non-fiction only but I generally go back and forth between the two.

05. Hard copy or audiobooks?

I have never listened to an audiobook in my life.

06. Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are you able to put a book down at any point?

I always try to make it to the end of the chapter before putting it down.

07. If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?

Not unless it's really critical to understand what the word means to keep reading.

08. What are you currently reading?

I just finished "Selfish and Perverse" and haven't started another book yet. I do have "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies", "Some Day This Pain Will Be Useful to You", "Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit", "Elsewhere", and "Naked Pictures of Famous People" on my to read list though.

09. What is the last book you bought?

"Elsewhere" by Willian Peter Blatty

10. Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time?

I guess I could but I like to focus on one thing at a time so I always read one book at a time.

11. Do you like re-reading books?
If I really loved a book then yes I like to re-read them.

You Are Like a Cat

You are independent and a bit stubborn. You are content to do your own thing.

You are curious about the world but still an individual. You prefer to be a solo explorer.

You enjoy your alone time, but you also like some quiet company from time to time.

You crave companionship, even if it means just spending time in the same room together.

Who is your favorite mother (the character, not the actress) from television or the movies?

As much as I am disillusioned with the show right now, I still have to say Mary Winchester. She hasn't made that many appearances but everytime she does I adore her (well except the last time). The song "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack always makes me think of Mary and what she would want for her sons.

May you never take one single breath for granted, God forbid love ever leave you empty handed )

Number of comments you have received?: 8,406
Number of people on your friends list?: 34
Number of people you're a friend of?: 71
Person that introduced you to LJ?: Nobody. I was on blogspot and found livejournal back when you needed an invite to join which bummed me out cause I couldn't get one. I was thrilled when I found out they no longer required invites to join.
Still friends with this person?: No one introduced me to it so...
How many people have you introduced to Live Journal?: A few people I'm no longer friends with. *L* I suck.
List everyone on your friends list you have met in person: Nobody. The closest I've come is talking on the phone with [ profile] visionofblue a couple of times. :(

Last person you added?: [ profile] severity_softly
Ever banned someone from commenting in your journal?: I banned anonymous comments for awhile cause I had some asshole harassing me. I think I changed it back to allow them again though.
Biggest pet peeve about LJ: That they keep changing stuff to "improve things." Usually it was better before they "improved it".
Do you feel close to most of the people on your friends list?: Um some of them. I'm really not that good at making connections with people. I'm terribly anti-social (not in a psychopath way but in the I suck at talking to people way). Have I mentioned I like animals way more than people? And that I'm a little bit of a misanthrope?

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five 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 glee.

I played twice )
I'm playing again cause it's just so much fun. :D

1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 people.
2) Post this meme with your answers.
3) Provide pictures and the names of 3 people.
4) Label which you would shag, marry, and throw off a cliff.

[ profile] domina_malfoy gave me Emily Prentiss, Dean Winchester, and Jon Stewart.

Hit me baby one more time )
1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 people.

[ profile] jackiesjunkie asked me about Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Katie Cassidy )
I just have to post this quote from last night's Criminal Minds cause I loved it:

"Getting into someone's mind and trying to find the godawful thing that happened to them that made them do the godawful thing to somebody else has seriously impaired my ability to giggle and it makes my brain all wonky and I don't like it." - Garcia

And now a meme I stole from [ profile] colbertobsessed: Pick a fandom and answer the questions.

I picked Criminal Minds. Shocking I know )

You Are a Siamese Cat

You are a very communicative creature. You're eager to express yourself - and do so often.

You are very dependent and love attention. You will complain if you are not getting enough affection.

Even though you are very loving, you can seem aloof, unpredictable, and stubborn in relationships.

A relationship with you takes a lot of patience.

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, what significance does it have.

My iconses )

Really this whole post is just an elaborate excuse to use that subject line. ;)

I'm going to set my iTunes to random and select the first ten songs. I'll then post a random lyric from that song, and for every correct guess I'll make you an interest icon! Or, if you want, provide me with an image for each guess and I'll make you an icon from that! Good luck!

I'm having a serious lack of icon making inspiration right now so please play )

So far in the describe me in one word meme I have been called sweet and insane. ;)

Cross-posted the fic I wrote to [ profile] fakenews_fanfic despite the palpable apathy it has recieved so far. This is my problem with writing, if I am not immediately showered with compliments I get discouraged and depressed (not that I think I am deserving of compliments, the lack of them confirms my belief that I suck actually). That's how I tend to feel about making icons too. I'm way too needy and thin skinned.

I slept till 2 p.m. today and I'm still tired. I fail at life.

Man LJ is dead lately. In an effort to get people commenting, have a meme:

In comments to this post, talk with your userpics, and only your userpics.

Post early, post often, and respond to whomever you want. Remember: the right picture is worth a thousand words. And occasionally, a guffaw.
-Describe me in one word... just one single word. Positive or negative.

-Leave your word in a comment before looking at what words others have used.

-Then copy and paste the meme to your journal to find out how people will describe you when limited to one word

1. Pick 15 movies you have seen in the theater.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them in your own LJ for everyone to guess, but not before you take a crack at these!
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling/using IMDb search functions.

Quotes are under here )
