[livejournal.com profile] evelyn_b gave me the letter H for this meme:

Something I hate: Hosiery. I hate pantyhose. It seems to develop runs if you so much as look at it wrong, and I've always felt it's had a whiff of old-fashioned sexism attached to it. It's also totally ineffective at keeping you warm.

Something I love: Haydn! I have been listening to the Creation again and enjoying it enormously. He's such a troll too. Full of surprises.

Somewhere I’ve been: Honolulu! It was glorious and beautiful and I would love, love, love to go back and photograph all the flowers (as well as explore and actually snorkel and everything). They've been photographed in every way possible already, but I'd love to go back.

Somewhere I’d like to go: Holland! Just the art alone, aaaa. I've been (very briefly) to Belgium but didn't have time to make it over to the other Low Countries.

Someone I know: Henry. For some reason I can't think of anyone else, and I even looked up names in my email addressbook AND looked up baby names online, and nope. (I do know other people whose last names start with H though.)

A filmbook I like: The Horse and His Boy. I will forever love Archenland, and although I am as city-slicker as they come, I would love to live there. Narnia, I could take or leave, but Archenland sounds divine. I also loved Shasta's journey and prickly Aravis and the relationship between all four of them. (And Rabadash getting hooked on the wall.)

Comment if you want to get a letter too!

From azurelunatic: brought to you by the letter o!

Something I hate: organ music. Hate is too strong, but I am really not a fan. Every time A Mighty Fortress Is Our God comes up iTunes I have to hastily change the track.

Something I love: oranges. Especially the easy to peel ones like mandarins.

Somewhere I've been: Ontario. Ottawa also, though that was a bit of an unscheduled detour, i.e. I arrived and found my connecting flight got cancelled and the next plane was the next morning and so I visited Parliament Hill, and got drenched in a sudden thunderclap of rain that cut the sightseeing short, and saw a double rainbow.

Somewhere I'd like to go: Orkney Islands. The islands are a bit lower in priority (there are a lot of places that are easier for me to go to than them) but I'd love to go. This is totally partly motivated by the whole Arthurian stories connection, but I also badly want to go to PEI for similar reasons.

Someone I know: A girl I knew in highschool. Pretty quiet, very diligent - haven't talked to her in ages but a really nice person.

A film I like: I have watched so few films I don't know if I've actually watched one that starts with O.

A book I like: oh man, I had to look at a list of good books starting with O on GoodReads (FEH!) to even think of one. Er. I liked Over Sea, Under Stone.

If you'd like to do the meme, comment and I'll give you a letter!

Random Superhero Generator!

silver has an extraordinary luck. She has learned to take control of cats and she can become tiny. silver has inherited all of the powers and talents of a snake and she has mastered the ability to create plastic out of thin air, however doing so makes her tired for ten minutes. Additionally, she owns a marvelous strength, but this power fades when she is knocked unconscious. silver has the power to communicate with creatures through a mental link and she is able to make duplicates of herself, but only while carrying her tiara. Unfortunately, silver is deathly afraid of rhinoceroses.

[personal profile] tani gave me these questions awhile ago, so have a meme.

What are you currently reading?
-Far too many books. I used to read things one at a time. Now I am in the middle of Moscow Rules (Silva, Daniel: thriller); Paradise Lost (Milton, John: poetry); Star Wars: Labyrinth of Evil (Luceno, James: science fiction); and Candide (Voltaire: general fiction); Goldberg Variations (Huston, Nancy: general/literary fiction (?)).

What's your favorite smell?
-Probably the smell of cooking food. Things like baking bread, or something roasting.

How do you spend your time when you're not on the internet?
-Reading, or running around the city doing things (like volunteer yay summer! *cough*), attempting to sew (failing to sew), indulging in hobbies, immersing self in water.

Have you had any interesting dreams recently?
-Well, there was one in which the bus backed into the house (nothing was damaged). Also there was one in which a man tried to kill me (I suspect the short-story I read just before bed was the contributing factor), but alas, no really interesting ones.

What's your favorite thing to eat for lunch?
-My father has indoctrinated the whole family into liking noodles of some sort for lunch. It's amazing. :D

NOTE: skewed towards giant pieces, because they're broken up and thus more likely to be picked.

Music meme taken from azurelunatic. See, this is why I do not do music memes very often: it just doesn't make sense! )
Pretty much all of these pieces are awesome! (except the contemporary ones with names which I haven't studied; I don't know those ones well.) alas, I don't know of anywhere to upload the things, so if you'd like to listen to them your best bet is probably Youtube or something similar.

ganked from [livejournal.com profile] keppiehed

Age: younger than you probably think, unless I've told you the numerical value

Bed size: I think it's a single.

Chore you hate: Washing dishes.

Dogs: only stuffed ones, sadly.

Essential start to your day: I don't think I have one. I'm usually too rushed.

Favourite colour: Blue!

Gold or silver: Silver. I like the word silver. Gold is clunky.

Height: 5'6" or so

Instruments you play: Piano. And I sing.

Job title: part-time work-thing. An office/manager/pool janitor thing.

Kids: 0

Live: I live in the city.

Mom's name: [redacted]

Nicknames: People have attempted to stick nicknames on me, but they've never stuck.

Overnight hospital stays: None, thankfully.

Pet Peeve: Chewing with loud noises. It is so irrationally irritating.

Quote from a movie: *quotes from book instead* "It happens to fabulous creatures very easily. Your castles are full of them. Dragons, winged lions, unicorns, demons, all turned to stones. Human beings find them and put them on display thinking they're stone all through, which of course they aren't. Usually there's a breath of life left in them somewhere." -From The Dragon Rider, Cornelia Funke.

Right or left-handed: Definitely right handed.

Siblings: a younger brother.

Time you wake up: Usually approximately 10 min before I have to leave. About 7:30 in the weekdays, and 9:00 on weekends

Underwear: *cough* What are you asking, anyway?

Vegetables you hate: Um, I think they're boiled lotus roots or something. Nasty greyish white vegetable with holes in them, eww.

What makes you run late: Sleeping in.

X-rays you've had: For the dentist.

Yummy food you make: Cookies. Cake.

Zoo-favourite animal: The hippopotomi are always the most interesting to watch.

From [personal profile] yifu:
Look to your right. Whatever object you see there is your designated weapon in the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse! Comment on this post to tell me what it is, then repost to spread the zombie virus.

I have an unfilled application, a pen, a stuffed monkey (don't ask) and a very small notebook.

I am not sure how helpful this would be for a zombie apocalypse. Perhaps I could use the pen as a projectile - it's quite sturdy looking - and use the monkey as a decoy (it's really cute. It's wearing a lumberjack-like red shirt and all). Maybe I could papercut a zombie? Does that even work?

The tl;dr: definitely not prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse. Actually, for any apocalypse.

I write like
Mario Puzo

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Which means that I've got to read his (I'm going to assume from the name) writing.
