[ profile] history_grrl tagged me with an interesting survey meme. So rather than post any of the other things that have been rattling around my head, or researching Silurian life forms, I'll do this instead.

Cut for the sake of your friends page. )

I'm not much of one for tagging, but I confess I'd be curious to see answers from [ profile] dcltdw, [ profile] amaebi, [ profile] davehogg, and [ profile] ghostowl. And several of those [ profile] history_grrl already tagged. And anyone else who feels like answering.

[ profile] ghostowl tagged me, so...

The Rules:
1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people.

1. I am physically incapable of turning a backward somersault. (I go over sideways.)
2. Bright sunlight makes me sneeze. (It's called the photic sneeze reflex, and it's genetic.)
3. I can touch my nose with my tongue.
4. Over my life, I've studied at least a little of Spanish, Latin, Russian, American Sign Language, Welsh, French, and German. Spanish is the only one I can actually use. I also know a little Italian from singing.
5. While I'm an avid (some might say insane...) LARPer now, I started the hobby late compared to most people. I didn't go to my first LARPlike event till I was 30. (I did do SCA in college and grad school, though.)
6. The creepiest place I've ever been is the Chapel of Bones in the Church of St. Francis in Evora, Portugal.
7. I have a growing collection of critters on the shelf above my desk. It currently includes a stuffed flu virus and a stuffed white blood cell, a hedgehog alebrije from Oaxaca, a mini purple rubber duck, a stuffed hermit crab puppet, a carved wooden sea lion from the Galapagos, a teddy bear named Buttercup, a seal balancing a pen on its nose, a stuffed llama with people on its back from Ecuador, and the most recent addition, a green stuffed triceratops I bought the other day. There's also a stuffed dog who perches on the monitor.
8. I have an unhealthy love for the two peanut butter varieties of Girl Scout cookies. (Tagalongs and Do-Si-Dos.)

And I tag... nah, I don't do the tag thing. If you want to do this, by all means.

From [ profile] jadelennox, because it's a quiet evening.

Pick one or two of my icons (either link or just tell me the keywords). Then ask me for:

1) a story (probably it'll be a short one)
2) an explanation of the icon
3) a poem
4) something else written (originally this said "or photoshopped," but I don't have Photoshop, so.)

...apparently I wouldn't be a tree. )

More substantive update soon.

The gimmick appears to be that you answer how you feel about each item in exactly two words.

Like this. )

From all over, a quotations meme. Go here, and keep hitting “refresh” until you’ve found a total of five quotations that are meaningful to you, or mean something about you, or you agree with them, or whatever criteria you choose, I guess. Then post those five. (Or, in my case, seven, because I couldn't decide.)

My choices of the moment. )
saxikath: (Default)
First: happy birthday [ profile] qaqaq!!

Second: For some reason, I feel just clobbered today. I don't know why; I've gotten reasonable amounts of sleep in the past few days. But I just feel wiped. I was wondering earlier if I was coming down with something. I don't think so, but man, I can barely keep my eyes open.

Third: A theater meme, from [ profile] greenlily.
Memery awaits. )

To quote a Con conversation: "Not necessarily, but in this case... no."

A meme that gets it wrong. )
saxikath: (yoink)
...but no actual content.

Arrr! )

And, via [ profile] kightp, the rules of LJ etiquette in the style of Jane Austen and that ilk. For one like me who collects Victorian etiquette books, most entertaining.

As a motivator to get me to take more pictures, a meme found in [ profile] roguepuppet's journal:

If you would like, feel free to ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life in which you're sufficiently interested to bother requesting to see it. It can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. I'll post the results for all to see, unless it's something I feel should be more private, in which case I'll post it for the original requestor.

I'm mostly doing this because I need more userpics. Maybe this will inspire me, or someone else.

Lyric meme.

Jun. 8th, 2006 12:54 pm

Okay, it's the "guess the song" lyric meme. I'll post a lyric from each song, randomly chosen from those on my iTunes. (Semi-randomly, anyway; I have a lot of instrumental stuff, and I want to spread the lyrics out among different sources, of which I have comparatively few, so I'm not letting it be totally random.) Post your guesses in the comments. Etc. (You know the drill by now.) A couple of these are particularly nasty, but I think at least one person out there should be able to get them.

(ETA: Bolding the only unguessed ones. Clearly everyone should be giving me new music to listen to. :))

1. But the world is full of zanies and fools who don't believe in sensible rules.
2. Don't believe I ever saw him without a cocktail in his hand.
3. I want to see Tucson before it's all gone.
4. I didn't do it, but if I done it, how could you tell me that I was wrong?
5. I've been washed up and put down and told I'm no good.
6. We have waited for the time, for the truth to live, when justice will shine.
7. Spirits far above, charms aloft on high, sweep away the storms rumbling 'cross the sky
8. So if you care to find me, look to the western sky.
9. I don't have time to waste on you anymore.
10. And if I let my hair down, would that be such a crime?
11. Quand je seme a main pleine, sous le grand ciel d'hiver
12. His fingers stroke those keys and every note says "please."
13. I ain't in it for the glory of anything at all, and I sure ain't in it for the wealth.
14. Again my cursed comeliness spreads hopeless anguish and distress.
15. It's receipt to receive the receiver.

Correct answers so far. )

An ice cream meme. )

And, just for [ profile] fizzixrat: while listening to a Pandora station of instrumentals, I was just provided with someone playing, on guitar, the Bach Partita in E for Solo Violin. Which I recognized immediately... as the Homemovies theme song. :)
saxikath: (Default)
I've done this before, but sure, why not. From [ profile] kightp, this time around.

1. Think of the first word or term that comes to mind when you think of me.
2. Go to: and search for that word.
3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results (but do not tell me the word). (Or post a link to the image if you don't want to hotlink it.)
4. Put this in your own LJ so that others can do the same. (if you want)

And just because I can't leave well enough alone: If you do, then I'll respond with an image that's either based on a word that reminds me of you, or found by free-associating from your image.

(Not necessarily right away, however ...)

I'm sleepy and my knee is cranky and I'm not focusing very well on work, so it's a meme. Picked up most recently from [ profile] ghostowl.

Triads. )
saxikath: (yoink)
From various people, most recently [ profile] greenlily.

1. For the things you've lived through, put numbers in the boxes instead of X
2. Repost with the subject "I have lived through _ of these 158 things"

I have lived through 91 of these 158 things. )
