Week in the Life, Day 5

So, today can alternately be titled "Snow Day!" We Got a lot of snow today, like, more than a foot, and we're still getting more tonight. Luckily we just had a bit of a thaw and some of the previous snow had melted away, otherwise I'm sure this year would be looking a lot like the Winter of '08.

Week in the Life, Day 3&4

Oops, so yesterday I ended up falling asleep at, like, 8:30 and didn't make a Week in the Life post, I'm going to merge yesterday's and today's together.

Day 3 )
Then, as I said above, I basically passed out. So now, onto day 4!

Fannish Osmosis Meme!

I've been participating in meme's on other people's journals lately, so I thought it was time to do one on mine. And also distract from some of the unhappy podfic things going on lately. So.

Give me a fandom and I'll tell you what I think I know and you can tell me how right/wrong I am.

Jan. 12th, 2012

Because everyone is doing it...

Book meme!

Pick up the nearest book to you. Turn to page 45. The first sentence describes your sex life in 2012.

"It smelled like moss and oak and the damp dark spaces of the Wood beyond the meadow."

I'm just glad I was sitting on the side of the bed I was when I decided to do this, because if I was on the other, the closest book was a math textbook :S Although discussing exponents could have implied good things I guess?

Also, depending on my energy levels, I may be posting podfic meta soon.

Podfic Meme!

The other day I was poking around my old entries and found my response to a vidding meme that was going around 3 years ago. I thought it might be fun to do a podfic version of it, since, well, podfic is my new thing.

Podfic Meme!  )

That was fun. :D I hope other podficcers try this meme too.

Love Meme

There's a podfic love meme going on at [community profile] amplificathon (LJ and DW).

If you're someone who enjoys podfic, I highly recommend going over and showing some love. If you've enjoyed my podfic in the past, I have a thread going here.

Still to come, some time this week, a post about my weekend where I went to an Adam Lambert concert!!!

So, a while ago [info] thedreamisreal posted a Snog, Shag, Marry or Throw Off a Cliff meme and gave me some characters to play with. Except she gave me really hard ones so it took me a while to come up with who goes where. She gave me Arthur Pendragon, John Connor, Alan Rickman and Sam Winchester.

But finally, here are my choices )

Snog, Shag, Marry, Throw Off a Cliff?

~Comment to this post and receive 4 options (actors/singers/so on, so forth). You must then decide which of the 4 options you would: Shag, Snog, Marry and Throw off a cliff.

Movie Meme

Taken from [info - personal]juri_anne
1 – Think of 20 of your favorite movies.
2 – Go to and find a quote from each one of them.
3 – List them here and see how many your friends can guess.

Movie Quotes )

Dudes, you have no idea how hard that was for me. I had a hard time thinking of 20 movies I've even *watched* let alone *liked*, so you have a really odd assortment there.

So [info] - personalparadisecity and [info] - personalaurora were both doing icon meme's, here are my responses. But first, the rules:

1. Comment that you'd like to play 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 glee.

Paradisecity's icons )

Aurora's icons )

Meme #2: The Desktop Meme
01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

Click for picture )

Meme #3?
While I was poking through my files, and getting ready to upload these pictures, I saw some pictures from a meme I originally did back in, like 2004. Basically, you leave a comment and I'll check out your interests and draw you a picture based on what I read. It probably won't be pretty (I'm not all that artistically inclined) but it will likely be funny :P (You can see some of the pics I drew the first time 'round here in amongst some other random pics). The porn one? Was totally for [info]scatteredheart :P)

Jun. 4th, 2009


Prompt from [info] - personalkabal42:

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 the 3 people I gave you.(Please specify if you have a gender preference!) *waves hand* This is not the 3 you're looking for (because I can't be bothered right now).

4) Label which you would marry, which you would shag, and which you would throw off a cliff.

Tee Hee. If I were to be an internet acronym, OMG would totally be it. Also, I find it amazing that I can spend all night at my computer without vidding or reading fic....

You Are OMG

You're the type of person who's always shocked by the internet.

Whether it's crazy news or a wild picture, you're always saying "Oh my god"!

The only thing better than being shocked is shocking your friends. You're quite good at that too.

And while you still allow yourself to be shocked, you secretly love it. You enjoy drama and gossip.

Ottawa and a Meme

Ok Ottawa, WTF. *Yesterday* was the snow storm. Why is it, I was able to get to work yesterday in 70 minutes but today it took me 2 hours. *And* I left early. I'm so not impressed.

So there's an [info]ottawa_slashers meet up this weekend. Do people on my flist need rides again? I'm already giving [info]seanchaidh a ride, how about [info]madeira, [info]diurnal_lee or [info]kronos999?
Warning if you do need a ride, I'm heading over to [info]lilithilien's place afterwards so we can plan our Europe trip, so rides home will either be early (before I go over) or late (after I go over) or arranged some other way, we can talk and figure things out.

And lately, a meme stolen from [info]wwsd:

Vid Recs?

So, I spent a good portion of this past weekend falling in love with vids (again). I've slowly been organizing the vids on my computer and have been rewatching my favourites. Doing so never ceases to remind me just how much I love vidding and how there are some truly talented people out there. It really makes me want to share the love with my flist. I was thinking it might be fun to try and challenge myself so for the month of January, I'm going to try and post one vid rec a day.
Is anyone interested in seeing this? I can't promise that they'll be the most original recs, a lot of the vids currently on my computer are older, or else I found them through someone else's rec. I am hoping that this can help me a bit as a vidder. So often I just watch a vid and get swept away with it but never take the time to articulate why it was able to do that.

I've already started to write some up (so at the very least you'll get 4 recs :P)

And while I'm updating, here's that first line meme so many are doing: )

Jul. 4th, 2007


So I decided to make up a meme. I'm calling it the Real Life Meme.

We all talk and hang out on-line, but how often do we go beyond that? So far all the people I've met online and in RL have been really cool, and we've had a ton of fun, so I'd like to encourage this.

Leave a comment if you'd like me to contact the "real" you in some way (comments are screened). Leave as much or as little information as you're comfortable with/is possible. Obviously I would love to visit Person X living in Country A, but that's probably not possible.

What I'm able to do.
1) If you leave your address, I'll mail you a letter or something (I have no idea what yet, but *something*).

2) Have phone cards, will call. Seriously I bought all these phone cards when I was just using my cell phone and now I have all these international minutes that I'll never use otherwise.

3) If you live semi close to Ottawa (or Toronto, I visit there a lot), we can try to arrange to meet in RL.
I'm going to Toronto this weekend to go to Polaris, but unfortunately I'm pretty sure all my friends in Toronto are QaF friends so won't be at Polaris (with the exception of [info]runonmoonlight who I actually met at Toronto Trek last year, but I totally lurk on her journal, because when she tried to talk to me after the fact, I was crazy busy, and kept putting it off until I got to the point where I felt it was too late, and now I feel a huge ball of guilt whenever I want to leave a comment on her LJ because I'd feel stupid talking after all this time. /guilty ramble).

So this may flop completely, but I thought it sounded fun. I promise I'm not a crazy stalker! And will provide any and all personal information in exchange. *nods*

Apr. 22nd, 2007

Ok, another meme tonight, this time from [info]ana_grrl (can you tell I should be studying? Updating *3* times in *1* day!)

Anyways, she chose 3 interests and icons and asked me to explain them so here goes. )

So, to continue the tradition, if you'd like me to choose some interests/icons for you, comment.

Also, this reminds me of a meme I did at least 2 years ago and enjoyed, so shall do again.

Comment here (make sure you specify which meme, or both if you'd like), and I'll choose one (or more) of your interests and draw you a picture about them.
Disclaimer: I suck so bad at drawing that they shall be no where near works of art, but instead things that are fun to point and laugh at.
