You Are a Poet

You are sensitive and expressive. You feel very deeply, and the smallest things in this world can move you.
You may feel misunderstood by the world at times, so you make sure to understand yourself well at least. You are very reflective.

You are a wordsmith, and you know how to get your thoughts out on paper. You are very eloquent and even witty.
For you, the written word is very cathartic. You always feel better after writing or even just reading a bit.





Got it in one! :)

Bath or shower?
Shower first. Sometimes a bath after a shower though, if I want to relax.

Straight or curly hair?
It was naturally curly when I was younger. Now it's mostly straight.

So what have you been up to? / Major life changes? Same old same old?
Same old, same old. Things just don't change much for me. :/

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?
Tolkien mostly but also Norse mythology, MCU (and DCU, though to a much lesser extent.)

Where do you hang out online?
Here, there and everywhere. (Come on, did you really expect me to pass up the chance to use a Beatle-ish quote? ;)

What are you reading?
A lot of non-fiction; mostly history and natural history/geology.

Full Rip 9.0 by Sandi Doughton
Cascadia's Fault by Jerry Thompson
Dead Wake by Erik Larson
Victims of Yalta by Nikolai Tolstoy
The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee

What are you watching?
Playing catch-up with some tv series I have on dvd. Currently that is "Downton Abbey" (S. 1-2.)

What are you making?
Experimenting with recipes, so lots of food-related stuff.

What are you squeeing about today?
Today is Monday, so the squee level is low.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be.....
I don't know. I'm a big fan of reading banned books because if they have been banned, they must be good. (That's a rough paraphrasing of an Issac Asimov quote btw.)

I should really watch/read/dive into _______ and then come talk to you about it!
Whatever catches your interest. I like trying new things.

What else is on your mind?
Being almost-broke all the time. Seriously, being almost-broke all the time is not fun. For one thing, it's exhausting and plays havoc with my ability to write.

You Are an Improviser

No one is exactly sure how you get things done in life, and that includes you! You just figure it all out somehow.
You like to stay busy, and you're often juggling a few balls in the air at once. But you are never all work and no play.

You are the type of person who has a good time getting things done. If it feels like work to you, you probably won't do it.
Sometimes you wonder if you should be more disciplined, but in reality, you get as much done as those who lay down the law!





Yes, this is so me. Ehehehehe. ;)

Gakked from my flist:

Pick any character from a fandom I'm interested in and I'll answer the following questions:

1. What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
2. Is he/she important to the general plot?
3. Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
4. How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
5. Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
6. Is there anything about the character you would change?
7. If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her? Would you get along well? Fall in love with him/her? Dislike? Have a friendly rivalry?
8. Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
9. Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
10. Is this character popular with the fanbase?

Snagged from my flist and thought I'd play, too. :)

Rules: Using only song titles from ONE artist/band, cleverly answer all these questions.

Day 10 - One person you can trust

1. Not sayin' because it's bad luck. Sorry.
la_samtyr: asian art drawing of sleeping cat (zen cat)
Day 9 - Two things you wish you could do

1. Win the lottery (because I don't want to be rich, just less broke.)
2. Time travel (so I could undo some of my worst mistakes.)
la_samtyr: asian art drawing of sleeping cat (zen cat)
Day 8 - Three words you can’t go a day without

1. No!
2. Quiet!
3. Outside?

As you can tell, most of my conversations are with the furkids. Heh. :)
la_samtyr: asian art drawing of sleeping cat (zen cat)
Day 7 - Four memories you won’t forget

1.
2.
3.
4.

Sadly, I have to give this one a pass for now. Winter is always the worst time for me as it holds few good or happy memories.
la_samtyr: asian art drawing of sleeping cat (zen cat)
Day 6 - Five things you can’t live without

1. My furkids
2. My books
3. Tea/hot chocolate
4. Yummy noms
5. My computer

I suppose that *technically* I could live without these things but it would be a much less tolerable existence.
la_samtyr: asian art drawing of sleeping cat (zen cat)
Day 5 - Six songs that you’re addicted to

1. Fields of Gold -- Eva Cassidy (What it looks like where I live in summer)

la_samtyr: asian art drawing of sleeping cat (zen cat)
Day 4 - Seven fears/phobias

1. Being closed in and/or trapped (stuck)
2. Heights
3. 3-D movies (not really a fear/phobia but watching them gives me very bad headaches)
4. Bad driving weather/driving late at night (Again, not really a fear/phobia per se. Just really really cautious.)
5. Large cruise ships (The modern ones are oversized and fugly. Most of all, they can -- and will -- *sink*. No, thank you.)
6. Falling
7. Dentists
