waiting outside the Winter Gardens, feeling slightly worse for wear

It's a bank holiday in the UK. You know what this means? DRINKING ON A SUNDAY! Who wants wine? I also have Jack Daniel's and a range of real ale I... aquired. Couple of 100 Things things and a meme, I thought, would go nicely with that:

- 100 Things is now a comm - 100things_index! All the entries (all 1300 of them) have been turned into an index, which you can peruse any time you’re bored and looking for something to read. I’ll be making weekly recs starting in June of particularly interesting, weird and wonderful 100 Things so feel free to follow/join if you want. If you have a large flist full of people doing the meme, it would be a huge help if – the next time you make an entry for the challenge – you include the comm name and/or this little banner: [code me]

- Anyone in the mood to volunteer to help me out with 100 Things permanently? Basically, this will involve coding new sign ups and adding them to the relevant posts (and tidying up what’s already there, if you can be arsed. If not, I'll get to it myself eventually). The idea of making it a comm is that I can give anyone the login to the thingermouse account, and when you’ve got a few minutes, you can code whatever sign ups there have been, and then screen them so all the other mice know they’ve been done. As Judy Garland once said, I can’t give you anything but love in return for this but good deeds bring their own rewards and all that. All you need is some basic coding ability and a selfless heart ♥.

- Lots of new friends! Welcome! Who wants to do a getting-to-know-you meme? Copy-paste this into a comment and fill it in, or take it to your page. People I’ve known for ages are also welcome to play :D.




1. Call me: JD

2. For a living, I: am a copywriter in the shady world of advertising. My speciality is puns and wordplay, so any time you see an ad that makes you chuckle-cringe, chances are it’s one of mine. I also write travel articles and novels about people not quite falling in love in the way that they meant to.

3. I share my life with: Three cats – Jack and Meg who I’ve had for 6 years, and Phoenix who I accidently adopted at Christmas – and a boyfriend, who runs a logistics company in the entertainment industry and is currently at a celebrity wedding that's going to be in Hello! trying not to get photographed skulking in the background.

4. My musical soul mate is: Rufus Wainwright. Everything he is, I want to be: honest, brave, brilliant, smart, funny, and with a confounding array of accessories.



Last week I bankrupted myself getting sixth row seats to see him in Brighton in November. I've adored him for the best part of a decade and he's written so many lines that just make me go, 'YES, YES, THAT EXACTLY!!!' but my favourite is this quote: 'I may not live the most dramatic life, but in my head, it's War & Peace every day' - because that's exactly how I feel. I love highly strung people making high art, even if that form is pop music. And his Judy Garland show? Gah. Judy is a god to me and he did such a wonderful job. I don't believe in marriage at all, but I would marry him tomorrow if he asked.

5. My current crush is: Matthew Whitehouse out of The Heartbreaks, who is not only spectacularly beautiful, he makes awesome mixtapes on Tumblr and wrote the best album of the year so far (out tomorrow, but you can stream it here. Head straight to Hand On Heart: "hand on heart, foot in mouth, I need someone who leaves no doubt. How typical of me to behave like that; how typical of you to react..." JESUS, IDK if 'lyrics you can hear a semi colon in' is a kink but... so many buttons pushed. Jealous, Don't You Know is also an indie tour de force and Remorseful, fact fans, was produced by Edwyn Collins, who wrote not one but two of the greatest songs of all time (Rip It Up and Girl Like You). Click if you like the sound of Echo and the Bunnymen mating with Burt Bacharach)



And one more where he looks a bit less like Marc Almond:



...yeah. I have a type. It's stringy pale twinks in fuzzy jumpers.

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: pulped_fictions, which is a comm I started to provide a fandom-type environment for original art and writing. We have challenges and discussions and everyone is a superstar in waiting. Come, join!

7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Tangerine Tempest

8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Brian Kinney from Queer as Folk. I really relate to his coping mechanisms and his constructed harshness, and the way he doesn’t let people in but he’s always there for him in his own way. Like him, I have people in my life I don’t deserve - enomis57 is my Sunshine, and I have several Debbies like duck_or_rabbit and sabriel75 to give me a slap when I need one and make sure I’m eating. I actually think ‘no apologies, no excuses, no regrets’ is an awesome life philosophy, and I try and stick by that – I try not to do anything I’ll have to apologise for, I don’t waste my own time or other people’s making excuses for my failings – I just learn and do better next time, and the past is a foreign country I lost my visa for.

9.Fandoms I frequent: Merlin is the only one I’m active in (I do fan stuff from another journal, though – ask if you want to know where). I’m also dabbling in Avengers (but only so I can ship Loki/Thor and me/Scarlet Johansson) and Glee (it’s a Kurt/Blaine showtunes thing).

10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I’m probably tapping away at my novel. I put fictional people ahead of real ones. I’d promise to work on it… but I don’t want to.

11. List five things you can see right now:

- Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde (I’m cataloguing my monstrously huge CD collection before moving house)
- A mug that says I ♥ tea
- An orange angle poise lamp (bulb slightly on the fritz owing to dodgy connection)
- My own hands in electric blue wrist warmers (I could use a manicure)
- Why We Broke Up, by Daniel Handler (reaaaad it)

12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do?
Make a device that delivers a small electrical shock to people every time they say something defeatist. The world would be a better place if everyone had to stop making excuses, stop whinging, and stop seeing nothing but problems. I’d call it the GET THE FUCK OVER IT button. I would also put Simon Cowell in a blender. /priorities

This reminds me that we still haven't got drunk together. I AM STILL SAD-FACED ABOUT THIS. But yesterday, yesterday there was free wine. FREE WINE! We had a symposium and afterwards we got comfortably drunk. :D Good times.

How are you, bb? *pokes*
We haven't, and it's TRAGIC. Is it too early in the year to go punting?!?

Moving house = major stress. I really hope it'll be over soon, and then you can come to the beach at the weekend, and we'll eat chips and drink Champagne on the beach :D.

Yeah, I'm not a new friend but I'll fill this out anyway - I don't talk much about my personal life on LJ so I have no idea what anyone really knows.

1. Call me: ABN.

2. For a living, I: Work as an office assistant. Think Dawn Tinsley.

3. I share my life with: Don't have a significant other.

4. My musical soul mate is: Don't really have one.

5. My current crush is: Don't have one. I've officially gotten over a guy I had conflicting feelings about for years. He's great for discussing Doctor Who and Harry Potter and Firefly with, but that doesn't make him boyfriend material.

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: My own, bsc_snark! :P We snark this children's book series from the 80s and 90s, The Baby Sitter's Club. I like that while we are certainly snarky, we're not as cynical as some of the other snark communities on the internet. I try really hard to keep it a community where people don't say horrible things just to be edgy, and even though I don't necessarily agree with how far people still go, it's still relatively tame compared to a lot of them. I also recommend 1bruce1, which isn't really related but is the same idea with the Sweet Valley books.

7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Popsicle blue?

8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter.

9.Fandoms I frequent: I lurk most of them now, to be honest. My old "haunt" was Harry Potter, which I was involved with for seven years, but most of my flist has moved on and the comms I was in either died, or I left them. I sort of miss having a big fandom with crazy discussion and stuff, but maybe it's one of those once-in-a-lifetime things.

10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I was writing and lost track of time.

11. List five things you can see right now:

A. My cat sleeping on my bed.

B. My cellphone.

C. Books.

D. An Autism Speaks ad at the side of my flist. As someone who has friends with Autism, I don't like Autism Speaks.

E. Trees outside my window.

12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Is world peace too cliche? Yes? Darn it.
See, I didn't know you had a cat!
1. Call me: Lil, Linda, mom...I'm pretty flexible as long as it is not nasty.
2. For a living, I: Special Education Teaching Assistant. Right now I split my time between 4th-6th grade resource and working one on one with an autistic 2nd grader.
3. I share my life with: My husband, daughter, her S.O., three cats and a wide range of friends.
4. My musical soul mate is: I don't think I have one. What I listen to, watch, read, write is all really mood driven so I would either have to make a list or not pick one specific.
5. My current crush is: Captain America or Black Widow. I prefer to smoosh other people/characters together than put them with me.
6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: I love gw500, but it is not that active these days. I've found some really cool information at whatwasthatone and what_a_crock. For writing it has to be smallfandomfest. Also a friend of mine is writing a mega Detective Conan fic so I lurk at threethieves waiting for new chapters to be posted.
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Ocean blue
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: I tend to identify with specific characteristics or think I would love to be able to do certain things.
9.Fandoms I frequent: Gundam Wing, Grimm, Donald Strachey Mysteries, Warehouse 13
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? My raccoon had hepatitis. I try to be honest with people.
11. List five things you can see right now: "Men at Arms" - Terry Prachett, my cell phone, various family pictures, book case with mystery novels and manga, calendar.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Make anyone who preys on vulnerable people spontaneously explode then make arrangements for clean up.
Uh, Black Widow. SO awesome :D.

1. Call me: Faxe!
2. For a living, I:'m a project coordinator for a development organisation in Africa. I live in Ouagadougou which is the best name for a city ever. :)
3. I share my life with: Boyfriend Faxe. Except he is not living in Ouagadougou, so it's been a very long distance relationship for almost two years now.
4. My musical soul mate is: omm I have given up on music - I don't like most African bands, and that's all I hear here. The only music I listen to right now is Lady Gaga when I'm on the treadmill.
5. My current crush is:

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: pulped_fictions for the same reason as JD, except I have been flaking so much on the challenges lately. Still, without it, I wouldn't even have started the projects I'm not finishing.
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: What does this question mean?
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: I don't really identify with them. It's more a case of making up the awesome role I would play in their lives if I were a part of it. ;)
9.Fandoms I frequent: Supernatural!!! But only on the fringes.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? Ahahaha, I wouldn't because I would have been looking forward to taking you out to a good restaurant and I never say no to food. :D
11. List five things you can see right now:
1: The aircon blowing at me.
2: The paintings I have done so far for the Fairy Tale challenge at Pulped.
3: Empty plate and diet coke bottles because I haven't bothered to clean yet this weekend.
4: How dirty the walls are from that clingy red dust from the dessert.
5: My Sandman graphic novel collection.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do?
I'd make it impossible for anyone to do anything against another person, against that person's will. Use your words people, and listen with your ears.
...I love him.

7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: What does this question mean?

It's an invitation to make yourself into a colour. I think you would be a yellow - I would go with Body Buildin' BANANA.

I made a gallon of a Mojito \o/.

*slurps purple emo straw*

Skipping straight to 12: I'd invent a machine that combines two points and eliminates the distance in-between.
AWESOME.

I have black straws, so......

That would be awesome. Then you could be here, with your mojito, and we'd be dancing in my study :D.

1. Call me: Cameron
2. For a living, I: I'm currently a Sophomore in high school, so ... student.
3. I share my life with: Given that I'm still in high school, my mom, dad, sister, and dog.
4. My musical soul mate is: Well, I have many musical soul mates, but my biggest is Britney Spears. I mean, c'mon, she's beautiful.
5. My current crush is: Well, if we're talking celebrities Zac Efron is definitely up there. ;)

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: None quite yet, as I said I'm new to LiveJournal so I'm still kind of exploring around. :)
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Fake Bake Brown? I couldn't think of anything else, but I like to tan so ... yeah.
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Hm... I haven't read any good book series lately nor do I watch much TV, but one of the shows I do watch is Degrassi. In all honestly, it's probably my favourite TV show that's based around high school because, while it's dramatic, it's not overly done and non-realsitic. It's easy to identify with all the characters and feel what they're feeling when you get into the show.
9.Fandoms I frequent: None right now, but I'm all for lurking whatever I find that's interesting.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I'm probably with my friends, either talking on Skype or hanging out in person, causing mischief at Walmart. (A little back information being that my town is super small and the most exciting this probably is Walmart ...)
11. List five things you can see right now: The TV, my camera, my phone, my dad, and a can of Coke.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? I'd probably deal with the really controversial issues that nobody seems to want to deal with right now. I understand everyone's right to their opinion, but if there's a law that supports something (Lets use abortion or gay-marriage as an example) and one doesn't like it ... who cares? Don't have an abortion or don't marry someone of the same-sex, but just because you don't like it or approve doesn't mean that others should have to suffer. It should be a completely free and fair world.
Zac Efron is... I saw the trailer for 'The Lucky One' with the new Avengers movie and I was like, '....is that Zac Efron?! GOD DAMN, HIgh School Musical seems a along way away right now....'

I agree completely - if you're anti same-sex marriage, then... don't marry someone of the same sex. Simple! Someone else marrying their beloved, be they the opposite sex, the same sex, or somewhere inbetween, is no one's business but yours and theirs and the people buying them gifts.

Totally willing to help with 100 Things, if you're still looking for helper mice.

Not new here, but I never saw a meme thingie I didn't want to fill out, lol.

1. Call me: Roh, but you can call me whatever.
2. For a living, I: I work as an in-house lawyer for a Fortune 1000 company. Somehow, it manages to be very satisfying and a real drag, usually at the same time.
3. I share my life with: A husband, who's also something of a jock, our 4-year old son, and an assortment of lovingly tended dust bunnies.
4. My musical soul mate is: I was going to say Rufus Wainwright, but you beat me to it. Here, have some Dessa (of the Minneapolis collective, Doomtree) instead:



5. My current crush is: Idris Elba, mostly as a result of my recent rewatch of all five seasons of The Wire, and because of Luther, which I think is dead clever, and surprisingly touching, despite the brutal subject matter. It's what I expect from great British TV and great British actors too. (So, clearly, I have a type: British, lol). Plus, he still DJ's at nightclubs of the more underground variety (as DJ Driis) and I have this outside ambition to be at a club where he just sort of pops in and spins anonymously.



I'd also like to give a shoutout to the lovely Andrew Buchan. Yes, I still miss Garrow's Law.



6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: Aside from pulped_fictions, right? ;) I just recently discovered bakebakebake, a foodie comm for bakers, and omg, you would not believe the things people can do. Mad skillz!
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Electric heliotrope (or purple, if you want to be all conventional)
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Bridget Jones would be too obvious, yes? ;) But to the extent that she's a stand-in for every overweight, slightly obsessive and more-than-slightly-dorky woman looking for meaning in life, the universe and everything, I think it works.
9.Fandoms I frequent: I'm in lurker mode now, and my active participation is limited to BBC Robin Hood. As a fandom, it's probably on its last legs, but I adore some of the people I've met through that fandom, and I stick around to interact with them. Also, there are off-LJ places where there's a still of discussion and meta around the show that I enjoy. I sort of watch a few fandoms from the outside, i.e. Merlin, and recently, The Hunger Games.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off?I need to catch up on all the TV I missed over the last week/month/year. If you asked me though, I'll tell you that I was writing and got caught up. I'm a liar.

11. List five things you can see right now:
1. a 64-oz water bottle I bought last week to make myself drink more water. I'm halfway through it for the day.
2. a fly ball my kid caught at a college baseball game earlier today. (If you know anything about baseball, this is a BIG deal, esp. when you're only 4)
3. a Statistics textbook that is taunting me
4. the neighbor kid and his moms in their driveway (It looks like they're cleaning their garage? IDK)
5. my iPhone

12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do?The ability to put people who talk nonsense on permanent mute. I probably can't magic away all the stupid in the world, but at least I can make it so we don't have to listen to it all.
That is an AWFUL comm, when you are in bed and should not eat anymore today. (omm, I want everything that are in those posts)

I have wine :) Me liking this drinking on a Sunday thing :) (well the drinking on Sunday which not going to lead to a hungover at work thing anyway)

Ooh meme!

1. Call me: Katy
2. For a living, I: Do a bit of typing and a lot of being irritated by senior managers (why can they not do as they are told??)
3. I share my life with: The Katyhouse :)
4. My musical soul mate is: I don't know, depends on my mood
5. My current crush is:
Now and forever
Photobucket

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: A little place called pulped_fictions you may have heard of it ;) Seriously from the weekly Spam Post to the fab challenges I've had so much fun and made some fabulous friends! I've also written more than I ever thought I would! I'm also always at doctorwho even if the fandom drives me mad sometimes and tennant_love because they're all as obsessed as I am!
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Sparkly Lilac
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: I totally over-identify with Tonks (from Harry Potter) for the impulsiveness and the clumsiness and I aspire to have her confidence and her husband obviously ;)
9.Fandoms I frequent: Doctor Who, obviously ;) Also Harry Potter, mainly the small Remus/Tonks areas of the fandom which are even smaller these days but we're a dedicated bunch :) Also lurk around Downton Abbey and Merlin. Oh and I'm an ardent Janeite
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? These days it's probably because I've another damn sinusitis attack :( but otherwise it's probably because there's something featuring David Tenannt on the telly ;)
11. List five things you can see right now:
1. The TV
2. My Tardis with 10 and 5 having a Time Crash moment
3. My glass of wine
4. Star Wars dvds because I watched them this weekend on they're still out on the floor *is lazy*
5. Lots of pics of friends :)
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do?
Any power I want? I'd get rid of prejudice and ignorance.
Have I mentioned how much I love not having to set an alarm tomorrow morning? BRING ON ALL THE WINE!!!

You are so a Sparkly Violet ♥.

1. Call me: Bond... James Bond. At 424-424-4242 and we'll have fun. e_e Uhh, I'm usually Jesterjoker. I have great fun seeing who wants to call me Jester or Joker.
2. For a living, I: Battle giant robots, seduce beautiful mutants and overthrow dictators.
3. I share my life with: The people I love and trust.
4. My musical soul mate is: Khan from Kamelot's nearly the voice of my subconsciousness. I am VERY eager to see who their next vocalist is. Here's an example of this dude's badassery. Epica album, "Descent of the Archangel." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3HAq0cWu_w
5. My current crush is: Noomi Rapace devours my soul. I am /so bloody impatient/ for Prometheus. Rapace in psychological space horror? HELL YEAH.
6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: Here? :) My internet home is http://www.cyberpunkforums.com though. Want to run the gamut of giant robots, mutants, twisted space horror, disturbing future cities and mind control? Here you go.
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Carnage Crimson. That sounds like an action figure too.
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: I have a lot of them. I call them "manic heroes." John Crichton, Rand al'Thor, Ariel, protagonist of Kamelot's "The Black Halo", Tanner Mirabel (in temperament), someone in the Revelation Space universe who has a crush on Triumvir Ilia Volyova.
9.Fandoms I frequent: Science fiction as a whole. Fantasy more erratically, but scifi is my true uber love above all. Cyberpunk, space opera, singularity and transhumanism stuff as subcategories. As for series, Revelation Space, Farscape, Stand Alone Complex (badass scifi anime and thinky stuff as a whole), Battlestar Galactica 2k3, I'm pretty much a core fan of Isyllt Iskaldur now, Jim Butcher (I'm tired of Dresden, I was a core fan of the series for years, and I'm a step below that now, I want a new series), Felix Castor, FRINGE!!
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I was probably just tired and forgot to eat the night before because I'd pulled an allnighter freelancing. I have missed a LOT of seeing friends that way. (My instincts tell me that nearly all of the women I'm attracted to are very similar, and it's why they're so hard to talk to. :)
11. List five things you can see right now: Amanda Downum's "The Kingdoms of Dust" and Walter Jon William's "Angel Station" sitting on my TBR pile I've reserved at the apartment in case I finish my current reads. Those are Alastair Reynolds's "Absolution Gap" (he is badass), Hugh Thomas's "Rivers of Gold: The Rise of the Spanish Empire from Columbus to Magellan" (truly amazing), Robots: The Recent AI (a compilation of badass robot stories from the past decade, including Genevieve Valentine's masterpiece "The Nearest Thing" and two nominees for the Hugos this year). I finished Brian Wood's "Northlanders" (intense, great and absolute fun), and "The Successful Artist's Career Guide" (well worth a read for freelancers).

That's only the books. Beyond that, the skies are brighter than they've been in days, I could almost see a puddle outside my window, and /right now, as I'm writing this/, there's a plane flying in the air. I love this city.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? I transform the world into an unrecognizable shape hopefully built for a journey to colonize the solar system, extrasolar planets and the stars. The best idea I have right now is in /five minutes/ would be to toughen up humanity for the difficulty of space travel. Obviously, I think we need to go there as soon as we're capable of surviving up there for a long stretch. :)
Noomi Rapace ♥.

1. Call me: Common ones are Vicky, Vic and V

2. For a living, I: am a petrol wench. I get to sit behind a counter and cheerfully deprive you of all the money you just spent on fuel

3. I share my life with: a dipstick tart of a husky

4. My musical soul mate is: I've never really had a particular singer or band I favour. So the closest answer to this would be Disney songs and/or various One Piece songs.

5. My current crush is:
lancegana softened Pictures, Images and Photos

I ain't picking. Luckily there exists this manip which combines the two.

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: None really, I just tend to lurk here and there. Currently enjoying tiger_and_bunny as it's a fairly new fandom for me.

7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: da fug did I just use

8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: I don't know, never really thought about it. I've done those 'compare me to a Merlin character' things and most people have come back with Gwen (as well as Lancelot, Leon and Morgana). Best I can do for that question.

9.Fandoms I frequent: Merlin is still the main one, though it's mostly to do with headcanon these days. I'm also a fan of One Piece, Tiger & Bunny, Once Upon A Time, Doctor Who and Disney amongst others. I'm currently watching the first series of Leverage and am really enjoying it (it's just what I need after Hustle ended).

10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I like to think I make good on my promises and if I did cancel I would tell the truth because my racoon did get hepatitis. The only valid reason for lying in these circumstances is if I was planning a surprise party for you and something vitally important relating to this clashed with the date.

11. List five things you can see right now:
1. The damn mess. I'm cosplay crafting right now, it's always a mess when I am
2. An octopus cuddly toy which was a Christmas gift from a sibling
3. DAB radio which I often have playing
4. Netbook, aka: what I'm internetting with
5. The craft foam left over from when I made my kitchen tap look like a swan tonight. Not even lying:
Photobucket

12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? All you misogynistic twits can live a week as a woman, experiencing all the shit we gotta experience due to the simple fact of identifying as female. Getting paid less, victim blaming, your body being a political battleground, friendzoning, all that. See how your perspective and understanding shifts then. Maybe it'll help any warped views you have on things such as sexuality, religion, race, etc as well.
I love the idea of you blowing me off just to throw me a surprise party.

That is an awesome swan. I hope you hum the ugly duckling while transforming plates into beutiful swans during the course of washing up.

Am about to give up on 100 Things as I can't figure out how to get listed - I seem to keep getting missed and it's very frustrating. I don't know what I'm doing wrong - I have some executive functioning issues so if there is something I haven't done that I need to do, please point it out to me.

I'm doing 100 Things about my PTSD and Asperger's (autism) still.

Frustrated.
Don't give up - you entry is here - there's just something the double underline in your username LJ isn't fond of, but I think I fixed it...

1. Call me: Clio, or Kate (which is such an unoriginal name that I don't mind sharing it with folks)
2. For a living, I: work in a library during the academic year, and special exhibits at the local Science Museum (currently showing PIRATES- I met Blackbeard last Saturday).
3. I share my life with: my best friends. :) Also, my parents, who I live with out of financial necessity (but not for long... I hope).
4. My musical soul mate is: pls to be including a video for the lazy
Charlene Kaye. I cannot say enough about her. She's so so so marvelous. Pop gets such a bad rep, but her songs are so thoughtful and beautiful and I am in love with her voice. So in love.

I met her last June and she was so sweet to my friend and I, who were desperately trying not to squee. With hung out with her before her set and she was just so lovely.
5. My current crush is: pls to be including a pic for the lusty
John Gidding. He does this silly home improvement show, but he's so gorgeous (and good with tools, lol). He actually posed for romance novel covers to put him through school, so you may have seen him already, but just in case you haven't had the pleasure:

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: I also hang out at pulped fiction! But I also love the challenge community then_theres_us, which is all about the Doctor Who/Rose ship. I stalk it frequently.
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Gorgeously gray (that color/tone does not get enough love)
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Liz Lemon from 30 Rock. The awkward determination to do your best. The lack of desire for traditional social life. The food obsession. I just love Tina Fey.
9.Fandoms I frequent: Robin Hood BBC (Yes, I know it's terrible and cringe-worthy). Doctor Who.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I work two jobs and am in grad school. I'm probably just tired and need a break from SEEING PEOPLE ALL THE TIME.
11. List five things you can see right now: my iPod, stack of books I need to get to, box of junior mints, homework I should finish, dried roses from my final dance recital.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Forgive everyone's student loans, obtain a time machine, and go traveling. OBVIOUSLY.
..we don't have anyone that pretty on our home imrpovement shows! This is a travesty!

1. Call me: R
2. For a living, I: am an Arts student at uni/bread-seller extraordinaire at a bakery
3. I share my life with: my dad and my two extremely weird cats
4. My musical soul mate is: Laura Marling. She's my age, but already one of the most talented artists in the world. Her albums get better and darker and more interesting each time. I feel like her music is the backing track to my awkward transition from late-teens to early grown-up-ness. This, in my opinion, is the best song off her new album but tbh that album is phenomenal so everyone should listen to all of it.



5. My current crush is: Jennifer Lawrence. Ohhh my god, she's just about the hottest person ever and basically the best interviewee I've ever seen. She has no filter, no tolerance for bullshit and she's a total dork. And then you see her on screen and you realise she is phenomenal actor on top of that and it's like - how so perfect? (Also she's going out with Nicholas Hoult which is basically my dream in life and has been since I was 10 and watched About A Boy, so, y'know. Best couple ever, right?)
6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: I actually haven't been involved in a comm for ages now.
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Indie Indigo
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Probably Alice from Alice In Wonderland - I'm a total dreamer, I'm always reading something and I get pretty lost inside my own head a lot of the time.
9.Fandoms I frequent: At the moment, mostly bandom but having seen The Avengers I am now reading all the fic so yep. I dabble, though, so I'll read stuff from The Social Network, Harry Potter, Doctor Who and Merlin (even though I'm woefully behind) if it's good/there.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I'd rather spend the evening on the sofa with my cats and a good movie/book/fic
11. List five things you can see right now:
1. My cat
2. A cup of tea
3. My desk, piled high with books about WW2 for an essay
4. My new scarf, which I am in love with
5. My boots
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Make everyone stop being so damn stubborn about things - the more arguments we have about issues like climate and equal rights, the more people suffer and the longer it takes to fix things.


Ugh. Laura Marling. She's so intense and amazing. What's your favourite album of hers?

Don't anybody have a heart attack, but yes, Mys is actually doing a meme!

1. Call me: anytime (or Mys, that works, too)
2. For a living, I: am insane. *offers to show paperwork*
3. I share my life with: too many real ppl and not enough fictional ones (missus, her four kids, our eldest’s boyfriend, two dogs- a mix Chinese Naked and something I can remember, practical upshot the few places where Naked’s have fur, she has short stubby fur instead of long anemone type fur, the other a Mexican Naked who looks more like a woolly teddy bear, don’t’cha just love genetics- our eldest and her boyfriend’s two cats, and more rats than I can be bothered to count)
4. My musical soul mate is: What do you mean by soul mate? If you mean like, person you admire, not just ‘oh I like them’, and who has through themselves or their music either changed your life or helped you through a ridiculous part of it, then it’s Todd hands down.
I’d love to include video, but for two things- I can never get in embed to work in a comment (when'd they put that nifty liittle insert video link up there?) and there isn’t that much quality video for him. And thank you, I have just spent the last hour and a half prowling YouTube and crying, going through everything I can find of him. And now I’m crying even more ‘cause while I was watching one of the only sets of them the user was deleting them!!!!!!!!
Okay, here’s one it's from his 40x40 project.
5. My current crush is: Erm, I don’t really get crushes… I get obsessions- ppl and characters- but not crushes per se.
6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: …well, about the only place you can find me is over at merlin_land, got tired of all the wank and flaming in most other comms, so I barely bother
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Violet Violence (and I’d be poisonous, so nobody would use me, and eventually I’d get discontinued and the only remnants of me would wind up lying in the muck of some rat nest in the basement of a disused tenement)
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Uh, yes, well, I am Legion and we are many. (referring to the spirit of the quote, not any of the myriad incarnations of it as a character)
9.Fandoms I frequent: SPN (don’t talk to me about S7… I still hold out hope, but she is not Kripke so I cannot have faith), Merlin, and gods, help me, Sherlock
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your raccoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I’d be hiding in the corner crying. Social and me, we don’t go together… I mean, I’d actually go off and get a racoon with hepatitis just so I wouldn’t have to go out- gods know, the raccoon would be less stressful.
11. List five things you can see right now: my reading glasses, my mug o’ doom, the telly, copies of “The Burning Wire” and “Waking Up Screaming”, and my Oxford thesaurus.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? You ever read “We Can Get Them for You Wholesale” by Neil Gaiman? Yeah.
I was at merlin_land way back in the day, but the games were too hard for me, lol. I thought that was a nice, fun and generally wank-free part of the fandom, so I sort of miss it.

1. Call me: Dede, or Dee.

2. For a living, I: Depend on the kindness of strangers. Well. I study library and information services (I'm going to be a librarian, you see) and I get a youth allowance benefit from Centrelink, which basically pays for my train fares, food, school related things.

3. I share my life with: Two grumpy, very old cats, a hyperactive poodle named Cherie, my mother, my grandmere, and my fairly evil younger brother.

4. My musical soul mate is: Jeff Mangum. He is my God, and I genuinely believe him to be one of the most talented and intelligent story tellers of all time, because that's what his songs are - little five minute stories that pull you in and tear you apart and then put you back together again. Here, have my favourite song by him:


5. My current crush is: His name is Eggbert (well, it's not Eggbert, I actually don't know what his real name is, Eggbert is a code name) and he is in the diploma class at TAFE and he is like this beautiful Seth Rogen esque creature that talks to no one and just sits around reading really intelligent looking books. I shared an elevator ride with him a week ago, it was the most amazing experience ever.

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: ontdcreepy. We gather around and talk about creepy scary gross stuff and we're all amazing friends and we do scavenger hunts and have movie watchalongs and it's my favourite comm ever.

7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Fire engine pyscho babble red.

8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower, because I was pretty much him when I was that age and also for other reasons that I will not go into on a public post, but yes. Every time I read that book I cry because I feel everything he is feeling x100.

9.Fandoms I frequent: Harry Potter obviously. And Glee also. I just kind of jump between the two. Right now it's Harry Potter, but that's probably only because I just joined Pottermore, and I'm in awe of it as a series again. (I got sorted into Slytherin, which was pretty awesome. I now feel like I can actually wear my Slytherin scarf without secretly worrying that I'm actually a Gryffindor or something.)

10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off?There's a Law and Order: SVU marathon on television and I literally cannot drag myself away. That show has dark powers that draws me towards it. They're always doing marathons on the tv for it, and I'll walk past and see a bit of an episode and the next thing I know it's two days later and I haven't moved from the couch except to feed myself.

11. List five things you can see right now: A can of that water proof stuff you put on suede things so they don't get water-damaged, a Black Keys record (Brothers, to be exact), a dangling row of feather earrings, a pot of fake daisies, and a bottle of B12 vitamins.

12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do?I would gather everyone that I have ever humiliated myself in front of (I imagine I would need a rather large hall to do this) and I would wipe their memories so they would forget every horribly awkward and stupid thing I've done in front of them. I literally wake up at night sometimes and think things like "OH GOD when I was 12 I told that boy in the year above me that he was foxy and then everyone laughed at me." Or, "OH GOD I threw that highlighter at the guy last week and it nearly dislodged his eye and now everytime he sees me he subconsciously rubs his eye as if my mere presence reminds him of it." And I wonder why I'm single...
I literally wake up at night sometimes and think things
OMG I totally do that too! I still cringe at things I said when I was a teen and I'm thirty five for gods sake!! And yes I'm single too.

I got back into Potter in general through Pottermore too, previously I stayed within my cosy little Remus/Tonks fandom. I got Hufflepuff which I love, always knew I was Huffflepuff so feel totally validated!

1. Call me: sabriel
2. For a living, I: sell books, buy books and talk books
3. I share my life with: husband, two children and three cats
4. My musical soul mate is: pls to be including a video for the lazy
She made piano music rock'n'roll again and damn her lyrics describe every thought I had from five to twenty-five and older...
5. My current crush is: pls to be including a pic for the lusty Oh God, I watched Charlize Theron in Young Adult and can I just say what a sucker I am for women who will totally slum themselves for parts, who play crazy fucked up like a really crazy fucked up person would be and yet... have you seen that woman? She's gorgeous.

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: pulped_fictions Uhm... duh... have you read the people around here?
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Bright Úbe
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Emily of New Moon... An outcast with most of her family, and especially misunderstood. She liked to hide from reality and yet manages it to survive and collects misfits of friends along the way, to eventually end up the popular girl.
9.Fandoms I frequent: Merlin. Sherlock. Bandom. Books. Classics. Fairy Tales. Doctor Who. Death Note.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? My children most likely and you'd get the truth because I rarely ever tell a lie.
11. List five things you can see right now: Berlioz, my black cat. Willow, my grey cat. Large flat screen tv (turned off). Three stacks of books. Febreeze bottle.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Create an actual tardis that works after my five minute power goes away.
Ah, Charlize Theron. Why so awesome? I love watching random interviews of her too, because she's so personable despite being more beautiful than anyone has a right to be.

I could not survive the world without Febreeze. Trufax.

Yay, index comm! And I would be thrilled to help out, only you know how I get really flaky when I go on the road so I don't know ... if you don't mind me only pitching in when time permits, sign me right up!

And I don't know if I count as known for ages (what's it been, a year?) but I shall play too, if only because I ♥ your questions for being so thought-provoking.

1. Call me: Dawn, but I've been shiiki for so long I answer to it, too.

2. For a living, I: Pick up the occasional job now and then so that I can keep sailing.

3. I share my life with: For these couple of months, at least, a hermit-like coach and a slightly ditzy but kind of cheerful sailing partner, and a beautiful boat named Majulah.

4. My musical soul mate is: Vienna Teng. OMG vocals and accompaniment like this asdfghjkl ♥♥♥



5. My current crush is: New crushes come and go, but I've always had a flame for this guy.



6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: I haven't been hanging out at comms for a bit, but I already know 100things_index is going to be my playground for a while!

7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Lemon Surprise. I'd be a yellow because I absolutely love yellow, but surprising, like never the exact shade you'd expect when you see the crayon. Like if you were expecting bright and shiny, I'd be darker, more mellow, and if you were expecting dark, almost orange, I'd be lighter.

8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: At this point, maybe Remus Lupin. Or Neville Longbottom. The former because I always blame myself for stuff and the latter in the I think I'm never good enough way.

9.Fandoms I frequent: Currently I just started reading The Hunger Games so I'm dipping my toes into that pool. Previously I've dived deep in Harry Potter, swam in Twilight, and skinny dipped in a lot of other minor fandoms.

10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? Most probably I'm too embarrassed to say that training has kicked my ass so badly I just want to lie in bed and sleep for 20 hours.

11. List five things you can see right now: A cup of tea (orange and cinnamon flavour, 2 spoons of sugar), half a loaf of stupid sliced bread (no kidding, the bread brand is BIMBO ), my empty breakfast plate with the knife I used to spread mustard on the bread, said jar of green mustard, and a pile of sails inside sail bags next to a trailer license plate that we've stored at the end of the room.

12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? I'm going to borrow your idea of electrical shocks, only making it so that people get it when they belittle other people.

(Also, I need your GET THE FUCK OVER IT button for myself because I wallow way too much in that crap myself.)
Awesome :D. I don't mind if you're not always available - ideally I'd like about a dozen people so someone's always there, but we don't have to all always be around. I'll make a filtered post with insturctions later :D.

I love the idea of Bimbo bread :D.

I employ with GET THE FUCK OVER IT button on myself all the time.

1. Call me: Sunshine!
2. For a living, I: I work in HR
3. I share my life with: My friends in my computer! I live alone and have for the past six months and am still loving it!
4. My musical soul mate is: I don't really have a musical soul mate, which is why I need you! But at the moment I am quite enamoured with sigur rós thanks to QaF

5. My current crush is: There are a few, but at the moment I think it's got to be Mr Gale Harold. The man just oozes sexy. Playing straight or gay he's just delicious.

He has arm muscles that are just perfect......

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: pulped_fictions
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Sunshine Yellow
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: This took far longer than I thought it would to come up with an answer.....but I think the reason I can watch QaF over and over and over again is that I can very much relate to Justin. Not because I am a young gay man, quite the opposite! But because he loves so freely, hurts so deeply and never gives up on people. Sometimes I idealise life a bit too much, and doubt myself too often, but when I need to I can pick myself up (with the help of people around me) and get back into life. Wow, much deeper than I intended :) So I'm glad that you can be Brian to my Justin ♥ I'm a bit annoyed Justin doesn't have a nickname for Brian!
9.Fandoms I frequent: Queer as Folk mostly, sometimes I stop by at Torchwood, but not very often.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I would NEVER blow you off!! The only reason I can see this happening is if my flight is delayed and I can't make it in time.
11. List five things you can see right now: iPad, empty glass, TV, season 4/5 Queer as Folk DVDs, four packs of cards
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Is inventing teleportation too selfish? Because, dude, that would make life so much easier!!

PS Let me know if you need any help with keeping your 100 Things (which has kinda gone viral!) sorted - I'm a bit sporadic with my internet time at the moment, but I'm here if you need some help!
We are perfect for each other! I make you do reckless things, and you stop me going over the edge. Maybe we can make up a nickname for me him? Bri?

I would love help :D. I'm going to make a filtered post later with instructions :D.

Hello you utterly marvellous person, you. <333 I can't believe how many people have come on-board with the 100 things challenge! IT IS AMAZING. YES IT IS.

You already know most of this shit, but you get to know it again. ;)

1. Call me: J
2. For a living, I: am a 'programme assistant' for a literacy charity. I help promote things like the Orange Prize, Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, National Crime Writing Month, World Book Night and other such book-ish things to libraries across the UK. I would love to write a novel one day.
3. I share my life with: Nobody. Or, well, I don't have a significant other or any pets. I currently live with my parents which is, um, okay but not really ideal. But I am so poor and London is so expensive.
4. My musical soul mate is: Can I has two? Both of them together are basically all my dreams come true. Doesn't hurt that John Paul looks like Jonny Depp and named his daughter after me.


5. My current crush is: Um. I don't have any one person at the moment. Loving Tom Hardy's lips and Chris Pine's everything and wishing Paul Newman was still alive, god damnit. There's this really hot geeky dude who works in the office above mine doing computer... stuff. But I have not had the opportunity to go creepy stalker on him and take a photo without him noticing. OH WAINT. HOLD ON! How about Richard Madden? I love his face and his accent and curly hair!



6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: Erm. I don't really? /loser
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: I would be that crayon that confounded me as a child. It was baby blue and smelt like "fresh air".
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: Cassandra Mortmain of I Capture the Castle. I relate to her romanticism and love of writing and self-reflectiveness and naive.
9.Fandoms I frequent: Star Trek Reboot, Merlin, Suits, Teen Wolf, Inception and XM: FC.
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? I am totally reading a really awesome book/fanfiction. Oops?
11. List five things you can see right now: Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan, Carmex Healing Lotion, peacock-shaped earrings, headphones and my digital camera.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Stop global warming? At least until the next several generations go and fuck it up again. :(
100 Things has sort of... run off with my free time. Irony may be at work when you start a challenge because there's not much on your flist, and then spend so much time doing admin for it, you actually don't have time to read your flist.

I think you owe is a pic of hot work dude now - just remember to turn the sound effects off your phone (beware, I've led people astray like this before).

The world would be a better place if everyone had to stop making excuses, stop whinging, and stop seeing nothing but problems.

I need to be part of the solution instead of the problem on this one. :-)

Friended the 100 Things comm too :-) Glad to hear it's grown so big.
That's always what I try and keep in mind - not to give in to my inner problem-finder, and become a problem-solver (easier said than done, 80% of the time, naturally).

It's insane, really. I had no idea this would happen.
that makes you chuckle-cringe
THIS IS MY CALLING. Making people chuckle-cringe, I mean.

trying not to get photographed skulking in the background
If he does, I will get down on my knees and BEG to see those pictures.

OMFG, DANIEL HANDLER. I would save my "To Cici, the proud owner of this book"-signed copy of Adverbs if there was a fire, ngl. And as many of my Series of Unfortunate Events books as I could carry. XD
I can't deny it's a strange and yet oddly fulfilling way to make a living.

I think he evaded photographs... but today he got a job designing a Popemobile for the premiere of Sacha Baron-Cohen's Dictator movie, so he might show up in snaps of that, lol.

ADVERBS, MAN, I love that book. Did you read Why We Broke Up yet? The whole time I was thinking, 'this is so fanfic, I can't believe you got away with this!! I LOVE YOU'

Super late to the party here...

Can you give us a hint to the celebrity? I look forward to playing spot mr. Brack in the tabloids!

PS. Did you move yet? I need your new address when you do - wedding invitations are on my to do list over the next two weeks.
She's the daughter of an art mogul and her step-mom is a TV chef.

Not yet! I will let you have it as soon as I have a contract in my hand. Long process is long... and frustrating.

1. Call me: Mia. Or if you can invent some nice nickname for me, then please use it. I've never had a nickname.
2. For a living, I: am currently studying and raising student loan. (I doubt I'll ever be able to pay it back, though. *sigh*)
3. I share my life with: my friends. I text them, call them, write letters/e-mails/blog etc. to keep in touch with them.
4. My musical soul mate is: Metallica or Coldplay. (I have to name the whole band, not just James Hetfield or Chris Martin.) I've been listening these two songs a few times a day lately


5. My current crush is:

6. An awesome comm I hang out at is: Sick!Wilson is great. I am a huge sick!Wilson fan and this place is a must to everyone like me.
7. If I were a crayon, I would be called: Shadow&Dust
8. The fictional character I most identify with and why is: (This is a very, very difficult question.) According to this test I am most like Cha Young-goon (who?) and Travis Bickel (oh). Okay...
9.Fandoms I frequent: House, Supernatural, Prison Break
10. Hypothetical: we have a date Friday night. You call to cancel, telling me your racoon has hepatitis. What’s the real reason you blew me off? Either I'm sick or I have already planned to meet someone else and then I totally forgot the whole thing and then I chose to meet her/him over you. Sorry about that. I'll most likely try to meet you again as soon as possible.
11. List five things you can see right now: A mug (full of water), a tea mug (empty), my cell phone (Nokia), some stabilo pens (red, green, purple, black and blue) and a bottle of glue.
12. You are in charge of the world – the entire world – for five minutes. You can wield the power of magic and physics and whatever other powers you want. What do you do? Most likely I will increase the amount of renewable energy sources significantly.

//Edit. Forgot the question 9.
