ship_go_boom: (Zombies & Walter)
Zombie meme (sheeped from [profile] kita0610):

You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have: one weapon, one song blasting on the speakers, and one famous person to fight alongside you.


1. I haven't read my zombie survival guide yet (I have one!  A friend gave it to me for Christmas!), so I'm not sure what the ideal weapon would be... but I think my choice would have to be a flamethrower of some sort.

2. Now, that depends - how long will I survive the attack?  'Cause if I make it for eighteen hours, I'd so want Wagner's Ring Cycle.  Then I'd be killing zombies and fulfilling a personal goal at the same time (not that killing zombies isn't a personal goal ;) ).  Of course, if I had to choose a five-minute-ish pop format song... Dude, SPN has infected my brain, all I can think of are classic rock songs.  Oh, let's own the cliche and go for "Don't Fear the Reaper."

3. MacGyver.  Come on, you had to ask?  He can make traps, more weapons, and probably whip up a nice dinner out of prefab rations from the sports store.

Dude, I say dude too much.  I had broken that habit for a while, but now I'm watching an evil addictive show where the main characters punctuate sentences with it.  On the upside, it's at least a versatile word.  You can conduct an entire conversation by saying nothing but different inflections of "dude."

There's a baby mouse scampering around on my living room floor.  This kind of confirms my theory that the big-eared mousie the cat brought in for us the other night (he was very offended when we told him we didn't eat mice) was the same critter that had been making elephantine journeys through our walls.  *sigh*  And now we have starving little mouselets running around looking for food.  I should probably put on some shoes and gloves and try to catch the little guy on the floor (he's really cute, btw), and put him outside.
ship_go_boom: (Merry Wanderer?)
So, I'm searching for entertainment that doesn't require hands (I'm repairing my ultra-faded bluejeans by whipstitching two strips of emerald grosgrain ribbon in the hole using black thread. Because if I must repair my trousers, I must do it in a way that is awesome.), and I check Veoh for Supernatural episodes, since I like the show but have only seen bits of the third season (this even ties into my Callum Keith Rennie obsession, as he's in episode 1x02, "Wendigo" ;) ). It appears that they not only have most of the first season, but two versions of each ep. In one version, the titles of the episodes are in German. In the other, all the information is in English, but they have the note "Hun Dub."

I had to start watching one of those just out of curiosity. And yes, it was indeed dubbed in Hungarian. For some reason, I find that really cool.

The versions with German titles appear to have English text & audio, so they'll be the ones I actually watch. Nope, they're dubbed too.  Will keep looking.   But! Surprise Hungarian! How cool is that?

I may be a bit weird.

Also, I took that Goddess quiz that was floating around. The awesomeness continues:

Which Goddess lurks in your soul?Athena
You are a wise one, my dear! Athena is the Greek Goddess of wisdom, disciplined war, philosophy and knowledge. She is a selective Goddess, as she only inhabits those of your high intelligence and keenness to learn great things. You’re usually not seen without a book in your hand or your eyes glued to the internet (which is, after all, the great information highway!). This should not suggest that you don’t enjoy people, as your cleverness and sharp wit are usually in full force when in a social situation, to everyone’s delight.

Memes have hit Facebook!  Totally cribbed from a RL friend!

Let's hope none of these are prophetic, cause... Gotta say... the credits seem to be saying that I live in a Lifetime (un)Original Movie.  Oh, well.  At least the men will be pretty.  Although my romantic life seems a little strange.
So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that's playing.
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button.
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool, you have to write the song that happens to play... it's the randomness that makes it cool.

Yay!  Finals are over !  Yahoo!  (Okay, yes, this statement may have had more effect if I made it after I finished my last exam on Wednesday, but I had important lazing to do)  I even did my celebratory textbook selling!  (Unfortunately, I can't pick up my books for next semester until the 16th.)

While taking my Sociology test, I had my third almost-encounter with an old teammate of mine from the YMCA swim team.  She's in my professor's Race & Ethnicity class, but had to take her test during the 101 time slot.  But since she showed up right before the test started and finished before I did, I didn't get the chance to say hi.  I haven't actually spoken to her in five and a half years, and we were never close enough to even bother swapping e-mail addies or phone numbers, but she was one of the ones I missed after I quit.  I'm told (by the prof) she's pretty cool as a grownup as well.  So I'm currently wondering how weird and stalkery it would be to hunt down her e-mail and write her out of the blue (to her, at least).

In other news, I will be spending my month without homework...  doing homework.  ::sigh::  I just had to decide that Given Enough Rope needed grounding in actual mythology, didn't I?  Then I had to decide that doing cruel and unusual things to the Descent of Inanna would be the way to go.  And since I'm one of those people who thinks that if she's going to modify things, she has to know how they go together in the first place...  Yeah.  Then, of course, I had to consult [profile] moss6886 on this researchy business, and she set me loose on the Mythology & Religion shelves (rarely accessed, they were previously hidden behind boxes of yet more books).  So I've now got a rather large pile of books to I want to read over break (and those are only the ones of immediate interest). Yeek.  BTW, The Courtship of Inanna and Dumuzi?  Basically porn.  In verse.  Of occasionally questionable quality.  (Lettuce?)

Don't mind me.  I'm studying for finals, and I think it's driven me insane.  But!  I have a H:tLJ disc to watch after I've finished being studious.  Yay!

It's Interational Talk Like a Pirate Day!  Arr!

I find it fair pleasin' that the head of the English department felt this fine day worth announcing (with a link to the official website!) to every lousey land-lubber with a school e-mail account.  She be one of us!  In hearty celebration, I took me the Pirate Personality test:

You are The Cap'n!

Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn't eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you - but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

Naught much else to say, lads and lassies.  Jest wishin' a merry day o' debauchery an' villany to all of ye filthy bilge rats.  Don' do anything I wouldna do...

Because I am a Sheep.  With a capital "S," apparently.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.

"Zarathustra answered: 'I love man.'
"'Why,' asked the saint, 'did I go into the forest and the desert?  Was it because I loved man all-to-much?  Now I love God; man I love not.'"

--The Portable Nietsche: Thus Spoke Zarathustra: First Part (Prologue 2)

Before you ask: yes, that really was the nearest book.  It was sitting on top of my computer, and within arm's reach.  There was a 1996 World Almanac about the same distance the other way, but really, who chooses an almanac over Nietsche?

Um.  I don't know who to tag, so... You're it!

You scored as 0 - The Fool. The Fool is the most complex and most contradictory of all the Tarot cards. "I am not a number, I am a free man". The Fool represents naivety and childlike innocence - yet the Fool is wise. He carries only what possessions he really needs He journeys through life, tasting everything it has to offer then letting it go and moving on. The Fool is a risk taker, often shown with one foot over a cliff showing us every new beginning has a risk. Whether the Fool represents opportunity or danger one thing is clear: this world needs more fools.

II - The High Priestess


0 - The Fool


XIX: The Sun


XIII: Death


III - The Empress


XVI: The Tower


I - Magician


X - Wheel of Fortune


VIII - Strength


XI: Justice


IV - The Emperor


XV: The Devil


VI: The Lovers

I tied with euther Fool or High Priestess, so I decided to be the Fool.  Although I'm told that High Priestess may be more accurate.

Geah... now I know I've been labeling photos too long.  I just wrote the subject line without any spaces.

I've started looking at host sites for pics (Photobucket is obvious, does anyone have other suggestions?), so I can put up the ones I'm taking at the RenFaire.  I've managed a few that are really gorgeous, which I think I'll put up here fairly soon, then I'll do one or two long posts when the Faire is over, with an account of the events and a link to the album.  Things are really cool out there, even more so now that the performers have gotten into the swing of things.  There are a bunch of people who are working as villagers and nobles, and the plotlines they come up are really hilarious and occasionally quite dramatic (they collude with vendors and free-standing acts, so I got to be in on one of the big ones last weekend!); half providing an entertaining ambiance, half keeping the ambiance entertained.

 ETA: I put the quiz results behind a cut, so those of you with dialup wouldn't lynch me.

The "great power and responsibility" bit is kinda off, but I'm certainly not complaining. :D

ETA: Attempting to fix the coding to the picture will actually show.
