Thanks to whomever it was that nominated Sucker for the SunnyD and Wicked awards. Someone appreciates a little tentacle tickle.

I have also committed memery:

You Are a Creative

Like everyone else, you have a to-do list... but you don't always prioritize getting around to it.
You are productive as your spirit moves you to be. Sometimes this means crossing off a lot of items on your list, but other times it means doing something else entirely.

You do best when inspiration strikes, and it's hard to predict when that will be. You thrive with flexibility.
Interruptions tend to distract you, but sometimes they are a welcome distraction. You do best when you focus on short term goals.





Ha ha ha ha ha. That is so true.

RIP Steve Strange.

Now some nonsense:

[livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat gave me the letter G for the six things meme:

Something I hate: Green Tomatoes! Well, all tomatoes really. And most greens.

Something I love: Goldfrapp. I was just listening to them today and realising the song 'Twist' is even more dirty than I thought. Plus Alison Goldfrapp is an alum of my uni (a little ahead of me though)

Somewhere I've been: Germany was just a day trip, so I will say Glastonbury! Both the festival and the town. The Somerset levels are one of my favourite places, when they aren't underwater that is.

Somewhere I'd like to go: There's nowhere beginning with G I have a great hankering to see. The Great Barrier Reef? That has to be better than Glasgow.

Someone I know: [livejournal.com profile] gillo is the only G I can think of currently.

A film I liked: G... G.. Gattica? Nah. Ghostbusters! Of course.

If you want a letter, just ask.

Comment on this post with the word THUNDERCATS (don't ask me why it’s that) and I will choose six interests from your profile. You will then explain what they mean/why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

[livejournal.com profile] arabian picked for me:

1. Astronomy: One of things my dad and I have in common is a long line of random obsessive interests, I've had various fannish obsessions and a fascination with stone circles, he's had stone painting, kite-making and astronomy (amongst other things), thus I spent a large lump of my childhood looking through telescopes and lying in the back garden in sleeping bags watching meteor showers. I loved it. I would have loved to have been an astronomer, but I was never going to be good enough at maths. It still fascinates me though and if there's a documentary on about the big bang or coronal mass ejections, I'm probably watching it.

2. Cats: I've been surrounded by cats all my life. There is one trying to get my attention right now... I’m not sure what I can say about them though. I do like their sense of independence and the way they look at you as if they think you are a complete idiot. Because they are probably right.

3. Depeche Mode: I have 27 years of loyal service, I can’t say that for anyone else! The new album was a bit disappointing, but a weak DM album is still better than anything else, so there.

4. Lord of the Rings: I first read it when I was about 11, I think, and I’ve read it a couple of times since though not recently. I kind of wish I hadn't read it so early as it's rather spoilt the whole epic fantasy genre for me. However, as much as I love the book very deeply, but I can’t bring myself to be fannish about it. Somehow, I find the thought of applying the normal fan activities to Tolkien somewhat sacrilegious. However, I don’t believe this is particularly because I hold the book in such high regard (though it is a bit), I think it’s because I find writing so intimate and I can’t bring myself to meddle in one author’s personal world (one jokey Balrog story notwithstanding) and I'd feel the same about Anne McCaffrey’s worlds or the Mists of Avalon.

5. Mythology: I went though a phase of reading a lot of Norse, Welsh and Irish myths, plus I love folklore and old country rituals (why will no one ever let me watch the morris dancers???). I think this interest tries in very much with my interest in witchcraft and the stone circle thing, I’ve always been attracted to ‘mystical’ and occulty things, though I am a healthy sceptic and I know most of it is utter nonsense. It occurred to me a long while after the fact (I was quite young) to realise that the reason I liked Robin of Sherwood so much when I was 10, was not because I liked Robin Hood stories, but because I loved the magical aspect. Herne and that forest folk magic was what I liked best. Hence I went on to read a few Dennis Wheatley novels. Um.

6. Witchcraft: I'm not a witch, but I wanted to be once. Then I asked myself honestly one day, 'what do I actually believe?' and the honest answer was that I was an atheist. That killed all that stone dead. I still find it all fascinating though and if someone put a gun to my head and told me to pick a religion, I would choose Wicca for it's respect for the natural world even though I am dubious about how much of it was made up in the 1920's.

As I actually managed to write down what happened yesterday, I suppose I had better type it up!

I think that was more or less it.

[livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat gave me 22

Then: Age 22 (1995)

Lived: At home in Watford with my parents. I lived at home throughout my university life, which on one hand was probably a mistake, as I missed out on a lot (I had one drink the Student Union in three years), but on the other it meant I came out with no debt.

Drove: A an orangey red VW Polo which had been through a lot - me driving it into the central reservation of the M25, a new engine, numerous breakdowns, adventures in North London etc.

Relationship: None. My love life was a wide desolate wasteland, though I did meet my ex towards the end of this year (though he made me wait months).

Fear: Not many. Surgery mainly. Not getting a decent job. Telephones.

Work: I graduated university, but I was still stacking shelves in the supermarket part-time, so I really counted myself as unemployed. This was pretty much the start of my 18 month job search which resulted in severely reducing my expectations to get a job as an office junior. That pretty much set my course in life.

Wanted to be: A homeowner, someone with a good job in London (though I never did know quite what I wanted to actually do - and I still don't), a girlfriend.


Now: 40

Living: My own flat in Hemel Hempstead.

Drive: Black VW Bora. Interesting, these years cover both times I've had VWs. There have been a lot of other non-VWs in my life.

Relationship: None. Can't be bothered wasting time looking.

Fear: Medical problems mostly. Pain. Bills. Losing my cat again.

Work: As a PA in construction Health & Safety. My exact job title is a bit of a mirage and changes with who I'm speaking to. I make lots of pie charts and make documents look pretty.

Want: More money. A bigger flat. To be able to paint. To finish my WIP.

[livejournal.com profile] stultiloquentia apparently started a meme where people comment asked for a letter and then posted their five favourite songs that start with it. I caught a dose of the bug from [livejournal.com profile] quinara, of course. She gave me 'M'.

Over-doing things as usual I did 10! )

[livejournal.com profile] quinara and I invented our own meme, because just the eight songs you can pick for Desert Island Discs would just drive you mad in the end. Although in my case only eight albums would probably drive me insane, as I have hundreds of cd's etc and still never have anything I want to listen to!

Anyway, these are the eight albums I cannot live without in (no particular order):

Snip! )

Hee!

I did this quiz about five and a half years ago and I got an age of 19. So in all that time, I've grown up by one year!

Woo hoo!



You Act Like You Are 20 Years Old



You are a twenty-something at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.

You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.



You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.

The world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.

you are seagreen
#2E8B57

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definitely strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.
