It's inevitable that as we read each other's journals we create mental pictures of each other. Post this on your own journal to find out who your friends see when they read about your life.

Two Rules:
1) It can be anyone in any medium. The person can be specific to a role or character or just the person.
2) Post a picture.

Twelve new mutants drumming
Eleven mythbusters piping
Ten buffistas a-leaping
Nine headstones dancing
Eight wonderfalls a-milking
Seven bones a-knitting
Six heroes a-crocheting
Five anto-o-o-onio banderas
Four stargate atlantis
Three coleman hawkins
Two pushing daisies
...and a boskone in a firefly.

3 Things

Jun. 29th, 2008 10:05 am
theodosia: (fishy)
* Post 3 things you've done that you believe nobody else on your F-list has done.
* If anybody responds with "I've done that," add another thing.
* Encourage your friends to paste this into their own journal to list the unique things they've done.

Making these just a little more general than they have to be:

1) Driven an ox with a switch
2) Got giraffe saliva on my sleeves
3) Been to Bahia de los Angeles

There's a story behind each one. If you've had a similar experience, I want to hear those!
theodosia: (Dodo)
First posts, first lines, 2007:

* January: Saw [ profile] lysana doing this, thought I might as well, too:
(Oooh, interesting stats and all that. Which I shall repeat tomorrow....)

* February: Um, in case anyone is interested, I was working all day yesterday just blocks away from some of the "suspicious devices" in downtown Boston.
( Ah, the Mooninite faux-terror alert, which I blame more on the media than I do on the police or politicians. Plus, Boston got a whole big donation out of Turner Broadcasting and a good test of its emergency procedures.

* March: ... nope, didn't work. I guess LJ doesn't acknowledge "script" HTML or something.
(Little did I know what March would hold for me!)

* April: I lasted until about 11 last night, despite being in a very loud con suite, but I was enjoying talking to various and sundry (especially [ profile] engenda and [ profile] qe2) and in a surprise guest appearance, [ profile] gnomi who perhaps unsurprisingly-in-retrospect turns out to have many many friends who are friends of friends of mine.
(This was, of course at Muskrat Jamboree, which rocked and what just what I needed, just two or three days after my layoff!)

* May: My former team leader called this afternoon to pass on the news that my former co-worker's wife had a good "we think we got it all" verdict on the chemo she's been going through since December, so that was a nice thing to hear.
(Hmmm, you wouldn't think my layoff was quite so traumatic, would you? Among the things I'm proudest of this year was not falling into a major funk and making some pretty sweet lemonade of it.)

* June: I'm currently sitting out on my patio. We had just a little pattering of rain about an hour ago, but I had the cover of the patio umbrella and the maple trees, so all was well.
(Enjoying my layoff, speaking of lemonade.)

* July: So, you know the GOOD side of being laid off and unemployed? If somebody says, hey I'm going to Maine, you can pipe up and say, hey, want some company and they say sure, why not?
( Yet again, thank you to [ profile] la_perkins! I'm still doling out little dabs of the wonderful jam from Nervous Nellie's Jams & Jellies.)

* August: You PEOPLE never tell me anything!
(The Futurama direct-to-video release)

* September: In perhaps a small fit of enthusiasm I signed up to knit a scarf for Sweet Charity, which is a fandom-centered charity auction wherein fans (mostly) write fanfic and/or make art and/or make vids to custom-order.
(which I still haven't knitted, but guilt about literally every hour now. Little did I suspect how School Would Eat My Life (though in a pleasant way).)

* October: Having listened to the first podcast of Coffeebreak French, the only real phrase that stuck with me is "I am tired" which while apt for me, is also kind of random for a first lesson in anything
(Proud though, with the extra time in the car to listen to podcasts, I've stuck with Coffeebreak Spanish (Lesson 22 now) and Coffeebreak French (Lesson 10)!)

* November: I spent Halloween without much fun, unless you count programming class for that - I do, a little, but I like seeing the costumes and giving out candy.
( Programming class from 6 PM to 10 PM, just like every Wednesday!)

* December: They say you should stop and admire your work frequently, not because it's merely good for your ego, but because you'll be able to detect problems before they get too bad.
(Ah, yes, the scarf disaster -- when diagonal rows attack! Another reason why the Sweet Charity knitting hasn't happened yet.)

Hmmm, not entirely bad as a retrospective of my year, but some of the high points -- Arisia, Boskone, Wiscon & visiting friends, the B.Org get-together in Atlanta, Readercon, all of the career counseling, the actual Getting Into School, visiting with my Mom and family, staying down at the Shore, all the stuff that I've done in visual design class and the new camera, that all gets skipped over. It was really quite the year....

Hey! Still alive. Programming class has been moved from Tues/Thurs to Mon/Wed, otherwise things are pretty much going okey-dokey!

I have found several unique ways to get to class via Cambridge's back streets, including that sneaking through the Harvard Square area before 8 AM is a win over Davis Square and Alewife in a big way. More as this develops.... says I'm a Cool Nerd.  What are you?  Click here!

Via [ profile] ellen_fremedon and [ profile] darthrami, the new list of the AFI's top 100 movies list that has been revised recently.

Ones I've seen bolded. Ones I've seen part of italicized (not just random clips, but actual stretches before I got bored or was called away.) And ones that I've seen more than once, with an asterisk....

*1. "Citizen Kane" (1941)
*2. "The Godfather" (1972)
3. "Casablanca" (1942)
4. "Raging Bull" (1980)
***5. "Singin' in the Rain" (1952)
6. "Gone With the Wind" (1939)
*7. "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962)
8. "Schindler's List" (1993)
9. "Vertigo" (1958)
***10. "The Wizard of Oz" (1939)
And the other 90.... ) I make it about 52 films out of the 100, with a not surprising strong bias towards musicals, comedies, and films with a fantastic element to them.

Tell me 34 things about you. I don't care if we rarely talk or if we already know everything about each other. Short and sweet is fine... I just wanna know you better!

1. Can you cook?
2. What was your dream growing up?
3. What talent do you wish you had?
4. Favorite place?

Seriously, I'm curious!

Ganked from my friendslist, the most recently [ profile] szandara:

What are five ways you would complete this statement:
Today, I....

* turned the corner on organizing a tricky data problem at work that will make the rest of my week much easier and more productive.

* chewed on my metaphorical fingernails about the Heroes thread proposal at that I somehow talked myself into championing because I do feel it's a good idea that will benefit the community.

* ...but realized talking to my therapist that either way the vote goes, I won't feel that it was some sort of referendum on me or that people who were against the idea were somehow taking that stand in reaction to me rather than the proposal itself, and that I'm proud of the way that the discussion about it was conducted.

* heard from an old friend that the scarf I gift-surprised her with was greatly appreciated.

* picked up [ profile] farwing in Davis Square so she didn't have to walk in the cold over to my house so she could watch House and had a good time watching with her, and then drove her back to her place so that she wouldn't freeze anything off -- it's 11 degrees out there!

It's been a while since I did this one (about 6 months, I think).

I'm impressed that the Mooninites images were picked up so easily by the algorithm. Others, I have no idea what generated them!

My third year anniversary will be this month. It looks like I'll roughly average 500 posts a year, which seems like a lot more than I would have thought.

That was a total of ::calculates::... huh, 362 posts. Which is at least twice as many as I'd have casually thought I made. Most of them were meme-ish, I'm sure. So I guess that 500/year average isn't completely off.
