40cakes: (winner is me)
Write 20 random facts about yourself, then tag the same number of people as minutes it takes you to write the facts.

1. I have no wisdom teeth. My body just never grew them.

2. In other teeth-related news, I've had five cavities. Three have the nice porcelain caps on them, as I was a kid and mom and dad footed the bill. Two have silver, as they were recently discovered, and it got put on my own tab.

3. If you quote any Monty Python, I can pretty much continue quoting the song/sketch in its entirety. If it's a personal favourite, I can follow through by informing you what season/movie/album it's from.

4. My favorite bot was Tom Servo.

5. When I read Roald Dahl's Matilda on my eighth birthday, I immediately set to work in trying to develop my telekinetic skills. ...Still working the kinks out of it.

6. I have never been in a car accident. In fact, the only things I've hit with my car have been stationary objects. No problem with moving vehicles, but that post in the garage was a real bitch for me.

7. My family has lived in California, Florida, and Kansas, and within a few years of us moving, each of those states has gone through a major natural disaster problem. Maybe my parents are like animals and just sense these things, I don't know.

8. I like slash and hack video games. I don't care if the graphics are gorgeous or it's a new step for the genre; my main question is, "Can I kill shit? AWESOME!" I'm not as good at First-Person Shooters, but I have my moments.

9. Whenever possible, I just prefer no clothes. Unfortunately, all my life I've lived with "other people" and it doesn't often lend itself to that. Booo.

10. Chuck Klosterman once said that people who can't narrow down their music taste to one particular genre aren't "real" music fans. I call shenanigans, and believe that people who refuse to listen to anything outside one particular genre aren't real fans. Beauty comes in all forms and there's nothing obscure-genius-indie-band-of-the-week can do that Christina Aguilera can't.

11. I have enough hair products and devices to fill a closet, all in hopes of straightening my hair.

12. When people ask me about my sisters, my eyes roll backward into my head and my mouth gapes open (aka the "trying to remember" face). They grew up with their mom, and sometimes they send me a birthday card. One of them has kids.

13. I have ten Monkees albums, all of the TV series on DVD, and the movie on both DVD and VHS. ...Shutup.

14. I met Fabio. There are silly pictures.

15. I'm a sex nerd. I'm always the person who likes bringing oddball facts to cocktail parties, or bringing up vibrator trivia in casual conversation. It's a gift AND a curse. (For example, the origins of the word "cocktail" are a bit of a mystery, though it does not come from, as some will say, the idea that when two people get drunk enough, the cock gets a bit of tail.)

16. I skipped the second grade, almost skipped the seventh, graduated third in my high school class, took the Honors Concentration in college, and graduated with my BA cum laude. And every now and then, I say things like "Eight plus seven is sixteen! Where's this missing prize? I KNOW I counted these just a second ago..."

17. Water plus heat equals steam. The world can be saved by steam (can you tell I'm running out of ideas?)

18. For the anime fans: Not a yaoi fan, but a big yuri fan. Probably because I like the kickass female characters, and, well...duh.

19. I like working with my hands. I know how to check fluids in my car and change a tire, I installed the showerhead in the apartment, built my bed and dresser, and built the DVD cabinet I have at my parents'. When I worked at Boscov's, one of the managers must have seen that I really enjoyed lugging around patio furniture and barbecue grills, and realized I was destined to work in a girly section like Coats and Dresses. Whee.

20. If I had the money and social contacts to warrant it, I think it'd be fun to be a drag king. Don't know how I'd work around the boobs, though.

Since it took me about an hour to think up interesting things, and in between that, had lunch, did my hair, listened to some music, checked my phone, etc. I'd have to end up tagging most of my flist. So hows about those of you that want to do this go forth with it, kay?

Chances are people you don't even know are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind post a link to your entries on this day exactly six months ago, nine months ago, and a year ago. If there was no entry on that day, link the closest date.

He had his moments.

Kind of apropos given the meme.

It's the little things in life that matter.

That Humour meme, and the "Would I have been a Nazi?" test.

Only I LJ-cut them because I understand that these screw up friendspages! )

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] cheekybaby

1. Pick 14 movies that mean a lot to you and choose one cap from each movie.
2. Post those caps in your LJ.
3. Your LJ friends guess the titles.
4. It is asked that no one cheats, as it's not vital to comment with all 14 titles.
5. Exact titles are ideal, but abbreviations are allowed as long as they are commonly used.

Let's see how far down this rabbit hole goes )

Casting Call

I think 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. The person must be in the movies or on TV (but doesn't have to be an actor/actress). The person can be specific to a role (e.g. Jennifer Elhe's Elizabeth Bennent) or just the person themself.
2. You have to post a link to a picture of said person in the comments.

These castings can be based on things in the person's personality or on physical traits you know they have.

And for those of you who know me IRL, be imaginative.

And make me regret that. :D

Ask me for "top five" lists of pretty much anything, and I will list you my top five of that thing or things.
